Christ is risen! He is truly risen!
The Gospel for this Sunday is really short — only five verses. Nevertheless, it takes us to the heart of the Christian proclamation: God's love for us (grounded in "the great events that gave us new life in Christ") and our love for one another (grounded in "the great events that gave us new life in Christ"). 

The tiny phrase "just as" holds the mystery. It means that Christian love is not simply "modelled" on that of Jesus but is, in reality, a prolongation of that selfsame love. Just like God's love for us, it will be costly — that is the nature of real discipleship. 

I draw your attention to the Ecumenical Bible Week 2019 below.

3. Ecumenical Bible Week 2019
In the Dublin area, we celebrate each year the Ecumenical Bible Week, from Pentecost to Trinity Sunday. For details, click here. The theme for 2019: Always be ready to give an answser...for the hope that you possess (1 Peter 3:15).
4. Some inspiration
The music of Ola Gjeilo from Norway is a recent discovery for me. In this video, the Central Washington University Choir sings his inspired Ubi Caritas, with the composer himself improvising on the piano.

Wishing you every blessing in this holy season,
