May 21, 2006  Sixth Sunday of Easter Cycle B
                           FIRST READING:
                           Acts 10: 25-26 "The Holy Spirit came down on all the listeners."
                           RESPONSORIAL PSALM: 
                           Ps.  98 "The Lord has shown his salvation to the nations."
                           SECOND READING:  
                           1 Jn. 4: 7-10 "God is Love."
                           GOSPEL ACCLAMATION: 
                           Jn. 14: 23 "If anyone loves me, he will hold to my words, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him." 
                           Jn. 15: 9-17 "A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends."
                           FOCUS: "This is my command to love: love one another as I have loved you." This is a new dimension of love that allows us
                           to share in God’s Love. Divine love.
                           scriptural topics: Holy Spirit, love, community, mission.
                           REFLECTION: "In all deeds and words you should look upon this Jesus as your model. Do so whether you are walking or keeping
                           silence, or speaking, whether you are alaone or with others. He is perfect, and thus you will be not only  irreprehensible,
                           but praiseworthy."                        St. Bonaventure
                           "Two opposing forces influence me: the force of good and force of evil, the force of life and the force of death. Being spiritual
                           powers, both are invisible. Aroused by my free and sincere prayer, the good force always chases away the evil one, for the
                           evil force derives its strength only from the evil concealed in me.  To avoid the chilling influence of the evil spirit, we
                           should always have in our heart the Jesus Prayer: ‘Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me.’  Against the invisible devil
                           stands the invisible God, against him who is powerful stands He who is the most Powerful of all."   
                           	              St. John of Kronstadt
                           St. John of Kronstadt (1829-1908), Russian priest, a member of the married parish clergy: celebrated for his charitable work
                           and gifts of healing, and also as a preacher and spiritual director. His remarkable diary My Life in Christ,  has appeared
                           in many languages, including English (translated by E.E. Goulaeff, London, 1897). He was proclaimed a saint in 1964 by the
                           Holy Synod  of the Russion Orthodox Church in Exile, and is the only person to have been canonized by the Russian Church since
                           the Revolution in 1917. 
                           "Put Christ first, because he puts us first, and let nothing deter us from loving him."  St. Cyprian of Carthage
                           A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends.
                           APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Introduce the sprinkling rite by saying that the same Spirit that leads us to baptism
                           leads us to a new level of love. Introduce the profession of faith by referring to the spirit who gives us the strength to
                           proclaim our beliefs.
                           Sample General Intercessions:
                           My brothers and sisters, through the love that Jesus has inspired in  us, let us turn in prayer to God, the source of all
                           • For all who have dedicated themselves to God that He will help them reach this new level of love that Jesus asks us for;
                           • For peace among nations, that God may rid the world of violence through the love of Christ;
                           • For the aged who suffer from loneliness and infirmity, that God will sustain them by His love;
                           • For all of us gathered here in the name of Jesus, that he will teach us  Love Divine, love that has no limits. 
                           Preface: Second for Easter.
                           Prayers over the people: Second.
                           Faith Formation
                           • What does it mean to love as Jesus loved?
                           • What’s wrong with loving any other way? 
                           Any other way has limitations in itself. But united with the Spirit, there are no boundaries. 
                           • With the comandment to love as Jesus loved comes the  grace to reach a new dimension of understanding.
                           • Since Jesus gave us his final commandment, to love one another as He has loved us, we know how we must live until our own
                           resurrection. We have no excuses.

                           Children’s Liturgy of the Word
                           Before he left, Jesus promised to send his followers something special. He was referring to the Holy Spirit whom he sent to
                           guide us through life to God. And before he left he also told us how to live, that is with love for everyone. The Holy Spirit
                           helps us do just that. Without the help of the Holy Spirit, would we be able to live the way Jesus want us to?
