Sunday Gospels

Through the Lens of Living with Jesus at all Times

The greatest thing we can do is to live with Jesus at every moment. We don’t have to wait until we have entered eternal life. And we don’t have to lose the closeness we’ve had with Jesus this Easter. The Gospels of this month will help you live in the joy of the Resurrection now and forever.

Sixth Sunday of Easter (May 5)


“Remain in my love.” (Jn 15:9-17)

What does every friendship need? Love. Your friendship with Jesus is a true friendship. That means the more you love him and love those that he loves, the deeper your friendship becomes. You can live with Jesus at all times by living in love at all times.

The Ascension (May 9 or May 12)

“While the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs.” (Mk 16:15-20)

How are you going to recognize Jesus in your life now that he has ascended into Heaven? Keep your eyes open for signs. Friends always give each other signs of their love: kind deeds, unexpected presents, encouragement. The signs of Love are all around you. But do you notice them?

Pentecost Sunday (May 19)

“Peace be with you… Receive the Holy Spirit.” (Jn 20:19-23)

“The Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me.” (Jn 15:26-27; 16:12-15)

Today on Pentecost there is another way of living with Jesus always: Receive the Holy Spirit. When you allow the Holy Spirit to live in you, then you can live in peace. Peace is a way to live deeply connected to Jesus. Another way the Holy Spirit connects you to himself and to Jesus is by giving you a share in his witness. If you watch for his inspiration, you will live in union with Jesus.

Trinity Sunday (May 26)

“In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit… I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Mt 28:16-20)

We have this promise from Jesus: I am with you always. And where Jesus is there also is the Father and the Son. So you have a choice: you can live with the Trinity or you can live trapped in yourself. When you turn away from your pride, greed, and selfishness and turn towards the Holy Trinity, then you will live in love, peace, joy! Glory be to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
