Behold, God’s dwelling is with the human race

Greetings on this the Fifth Sunday of Easter
Readings: Acts 14:21-27; Ps 145:8-9, 10-11, 12-13; Rev 21:1-5a; Jn 13:31-33a, 34-35
Notes:

Love dwells. Love remains.
I wish for you a life of love.

First reading
And when they arrived, they called the church together
and reported what God had done with them
and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.

Responsorial Psalm
I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.

The LORD is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness.
The LORD is good to all
and compassionate toward all his works.

Second reading
I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
“Behold, God’s dwelling is with the human race.
He will dwell with them and they will be his people
and God himself will always be with them as their God.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes,
and there shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain,
for the old order has passed away.”

Alleluia Verse
I give you a new commandment, says the Lord:
love one another as I have loved you.

Gospel Portion
I give you a new commandment: love one another.
As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
