The readings for the Sixth Sunday in Easter for Year B are a call to love each other just as we are loved by God. The first reading (Acts 10:25-26, 34-35, 44-48) Peter explains that God loves all people. The psalm (Psalm 98:1, 2-3, 3-4) sings “The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.” The second reading (1 John 4:7-1) reiterates that God loves us and that God is love. And in the gospel (John 15:9-17) Jesus commands us to love in order that we might know real joy.
