Seventh Sunday of Easter (C)
20 I pray not only for these but also for those who through their teaching will come to believe in me.
21 May they all be one, just as, Father, you are in me and I am in you, so that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe it was you who sent me.
22 I have given them the glory you gave to me, that they may be one as we are one.
23 With me in them and you in me, may they be so perfected in unity that the world will recognise that it was you who sent me and that you have loved them as you have loved me.
24 Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, so that they may always see my glory which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.
25 Father, Upright One, the world has not known you, but I have known you, and these have known that you have sent me.
26 I have made your name known to them and will continue to make it known, so that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and so that I may be in them.
Sunday Gospel Reflection With Fr. Bill Grimm
May 10, 2013
When I look at the average Christian community, I do not see division so much as I see indifference. We can sit next to one another on a Sunday, proclaiming one faith, hearing the one Word of God, partaking of the one Eucharist and sharing eternal life with one another, and yet not bother to say "Good morning."
