The readings for the Sixth Sunday in Easter for Year B (see below) are a call to love each other just as we are loved by God. The second reading reminds us that God loves us and that God is love. And in the gospel, Jesus commands us to love in order that we might know real joy. Topics for this weekend could human dignity, community, or God’s commandments.
