Reflection for Sunday, June 2, 2019

Seventh Sunday of Easter

First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 7:55-60
Psalm Response: Psalm 97: 1-2, 6-7, 9
Second Reading: Revelations 22: 12-14, 16-17, 20
Gospel: John 17:20-26

As he was being stoned, Stephen, seeing the glory of God, was able to forgive his accusers praying “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.”  How often are we invited to forgive one another for the stones thrown at us? How do we identify the stones in our life and how do we react?

Continually we are invited to come and receive the many gifts that are offered to us. In John’s gospel the potentiality of love is described and the realization of what is possible through that love is overwhelming and exciting. Do we believe in the gifts of everyone we encounter? Are we able to see our own gifts and our capacity to be a conduit for living water for one another?

Prayer
Dear Lord, thank you for the invitation to come and receive from the life giving water that I need to expand my heart. Help me to create a universe of intentionality; acting out of love, forgiveness and a clear purpose, rooted in hope and looking out for others.

Yogi Wess, Associate
