REFLECTION

6 May 2018

 Sixth Sunday of Easter

In this week’s Gospel (Jn 15:9-17), Jesus expresses his desire to fill us with HIS joy – divine joy! He tells his disciples, “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy might be complete.” The truth is, our joy can never be complete unless it participates in Jesus’ joy which is the joy of God. This is just another way of saying what St. Augustine famously said many years ago: “Our hearts are restless, until they rest in God.” We, as human beings created by God and in his image, are made to live in communion with God, nothing else can fulfill this basic human need; nothing else can “complete” our joy.
