you this now before it takes place, so that when it does happen you may believe.
READ: Loving Jesus is not possible without keeping his words. Jesus demands obe- dient love. Jesus, as he bids goodbye assures those who love and keep his words of the Holy Spirit. They will know him more and his teachings. The Holy Spirit will enlighten them. They will also possess the peace which only God can give. They should not be afraid.
REFLECT: Are you always afraid of the future? If you have no peace of mind, it may be an indication that you do not love Jesus at all or keep his words. Jesus is present in the poor and the needy. Jesus identifies himself with them. They are all over the place. Loving Jesus is showing soli- darity with them.
PRAY: Lord, many times I realize I do not really love you because I am always thinking of my own interest. I don’t care to help the poor. I am always conscious of protecting my things and my earnings, for- getting your words that I should be charitable.
ACT: Express your love by giving to the poor you meet today. You can buy them food and smile at them. Volunteer to pay the tuition fees of your neighbor.
