Feast of St. Matthias

John 15:9-17

Jesus’ unique command is that we love one another as he has loved us. Jesus knew he had to remind us of this, because sometimes we act as though we are made for competition rather than love. Jesus has given us the example of a love greater than any other. He laid down his life for us. This gospel is all about love and friendship. How are we doing in this area? How well effective are we in loving one another? Are we a true friend to someone?
