Living the Law of Love

In our Gospel for this Sixth Sunday of Easter, Jesus says to us, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Such words may sound to postmodern ears as coercive language. However, as Tony Crescio explains, Christians should hear in these words a call to live the rules of the Heavenly Father’s House. In other words, it is by living the commandments that we learn to enter into the eternal Trinitarian dynamics of Love here and now.
