Sixth Sunday of Easter
My brother, Jesus,
It is hard for me to comprehend that you chose me.
I know how flawed and imperfect I really am,
and yet each day you choose me again as your friend.
You call me to love others in the same way you love me.
That is where the faith you have given me
offers me the hope to believe that you pour out your love on me.
Bring me into your marvelous light
and help me to be fruitful in this world and to care for those
who are forgotten and discarded.
Help me to love as you love.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
