Gospel for the Monday of the 5th Week of Easter

John 14:21-26

Summary: Jesus emphasizes that love for Him is shown through obedience to His commandments. In response to Judas’s question about His revelation, Jesus explains that He and the Father will dwell with those who love and obey Him, distinguishing them from the world. He reassures the disciples of the Holy Spirit's future role, sent by the Father to teach and remind them of His teachings, ensuring their continued guidance and remembrance of His words.

Love and Obedience

Jesus said to his disciples: “”Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.””

Judas, not the Iscariot, said to him, “”Master, then what happened that you will reveal yourself to us and not to the world?””

Jesus answered and said to him, “”Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; yet the word you hear is not mine but that of the Father who sent me.

I have told you this while I am with you. The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name – he will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you.”
