Church Cleaning This Week

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Guin Petrimoulx & Beverly Franklin

 

SIXTH SUNDAY OF EASTER           

John 4   Acts 8:6   Responsorial Psalm 66    

      1 Peter 3: 15, 16

               

            As we draw nearer to Pentecost, our readings begin to focus on the promise of the Paraclete, the Comforter.

 

Responsorial Psalm 66 is a song those Samaritans might have sung on witnessing the mighty deeds of God in their midst: “come and see the works of God!” (66:5). But it also echoes the joy and wonder of the apostles at the spread of the Gospel: “Let all the earth cry out to God with joy” (antiphon).

 

Second Reading :   Today’s reading from 1 Peter is full of good advice to Christians living in a hostile world. “Always be ready to give an explana-tion to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope,” he tells them, “but do it with gentleness and reverence: (1 Peter 3: 15,16). The faith is not some-thing to be forced on others, with strident anger or hostility. Instead, we treat those who do not share our hope with reverence. In other words, we are to be like Christ, who suffered for doing what was good.

 

Gospel:  This passage comes immediately following last Sunday’s Gospel, the words of Jesus to Thomas, Philip, and the others. The disciples do not understand how they can follow Jesus, how they can go where he is going. And Jesus responds with the promise of the Advocate who will come to lead them more deeply into the mysterious relationship of Father and Son. Through the Holy Spirit, they will see Jesus again, for he promises to reveal him-self to them. The binding force of this relationship is love—and the sign of love is action, the keeping of the commandments.
