In the Gospel for the Sixth Sunday of Easter, the Risen Lord promises the Holy Spirit to his disciples.   The Holy Spirit will make present his love for them.  In the Holy Spirit, they will enjoy a new intimate relationship with the Risen Lord.  “Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me.  And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him” (John 14: 21).  Inspired by the Holy Spirit, the disciples remain in the love of Jesus when they love others as Jesus loves them.  Those who love Jesus keep his commandments to love God and neighbor.  How do you love Jesus?
