"Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God. Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love."​

1 John 4:7, 8

What image of God do you have in your head?
Is it a trumpet-blasting conquering figure? Or perhaps you envision the fiercely-countenanced figure of Michelangelo's "Creation of the Sun, Moon and Plants". Whatever you imagine the humanized version of our Heavenly Father to be, I hope it incorporates the unfathomable love that emanates from Him, in addition to His great power.

I feel immense love emanating from the Lord's face in the great artist's rendition of the "Creation of Adam". God's expression is intense in this painting; His desire is clearly to be intimately connected to us. The life that flows from God to Adam becomes the love that flows from Christ to us. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have eternal life." (John 3:16)

Immersion is a word used often here at Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers. Our short term mission trips provide immersion experiences for those interested in learning about other cultures and ministering in impoverished areas of the world.

My friend, we are called to immerse ourselves in love, yet at the same time realize that while it is wonderful, it, like a rose, also has thorns that may sting at times.

Prayer for Sixth Sunday after Easter​

O God, be so kind and understanding to us who are so bound up with our physical material being that it is at times so hard to not imagine You to be somewhat like us but just a lot better and way beyond our little minds. So many sages and saints tell us that You are entirely beyond the ways that we think and feel and talk. They tell us that we can only expect feeble resonances with You as You really are. And yet there is this thing about Jesus coming to manifest to us in our human condition just what You are like! We cannot really know and yet we get glimpses from watching and following Jesus' Spirit present and at work, giving his life for his friends in a supreme act of self-sacrifice. Could this be the best way to know you?

Amen.

~ Father John P. Martin, M.M.
Dinh, do you want to, really know God? Then tap into the heart that He has equipped you with and start loving! God's spiritual DNA is within us; He planted a "love seed" for it to be watered and grow. "I say love it is a flower, and you, it's only seed" ("The Rose"—Amanda McBroom, composer)

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Raymond J. Finch, M.M.
