7th Week of Easter

Finally, Jesus spoke to the Disciples in plain terms, and they realized that He knew absolutely everything. They believed in Him. When the Lord said that His friends would abandon Him anyway, the words must have stung. Jesus prayed for them, knowing that they would continue the work that He began on Earth. He prayed to the Father that the Disciples would be consecrated in truth, have oneness in love, and join Him in heavenly glory. During Jesus’ Passion, Peter denied Him three times, but the Risen Lord later gave him the opportunity to declare His love three times, too. Even with our human imperfections, God’s love remains in us. He can do amazing things through us and easily forgives our failings. How often do we fail to see the glory of working within limitations that we face?
