Seventh Sunday of Easter

With the disciples this morning, we hear the Lord reminding us that the self-forgetful love and intimacy of Father and beloved Son is where we belong. Jesus begs his Father that we may be swept up into the reality of the God’s own “mutual love and indwelling.”* There is room for everybody in this divine embrace. For as Jesus tells his Father, his desire is “that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them.”
