6th Sunday of Easter - A (May 21, 2017)


“Reason for Your Hope”

The author of the First Letter of St. Peter urges Christians, “Always be ready to give an explanation … for a reason for your hope.”  (2nd Reading)

That reason should be what Jesus tells the disciples in today’s Gospel, “Because I live and you will live.”  That life is the life Jesus shared with the Father, “I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you.”  That life is the presence of the Holy Spirit, “who remains with you, and will be in you.”  Thus, our life is the life of the Blessed Trinity who lives in us.

There, the reason for our hope.
