For 25 May 2023, Thursday of the seventh week of Easter, based on John 17:20-26
Lifting his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed, ‘I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. Father, I desire that those also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.
‘Righteous Father, the world does not know you, but I know you; and these know that you have sent me. I made your name known to them, and I will make it known, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.’

Thank you, Sr. Mary Ellen for opening the scriptures to us with your quotes and images. I found them very helpful!
Each day as we surrender to God in trust, we become more immersed in God’s love and God is always waiting to immerse us more in His love and oneness with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
May we contemplate this mystery more and more.
Blessings on your continued preaching,
