 (Reflection on Sunday Gospel)

"Love one another as I have loved you"

    How does God reveal his glory to us?  During his last supper with his disciples on the eve of his sacrifice on the cross, Jesus speaks of his glory and the glory of his Father.  What is this glory?  It is the cross which Jesus speaks of here.  The cross of Jesus reveals the tremendous love and mercy of God the Father and his beloved Son for the human race.  John the Evangelist writes, "Fore God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).

You can download their summer program brochure here.

Catholic Engaged Encounter is part of an international and national family and is an in-depth, private, personal, marriage preparation experience within the context of Catholic faith and values.

For more information and/or to register for a weekend, please visit our website at www.hawaiicee.org       


In today's Gospel, Jesus commanded his disciples to love one another as He had loved them.  Do we reflect this love in our lives and relationships, especially our marriage relationship?  Let God show you how to love your spouse and others as He loves you.
