Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 5th Sunday in Easter.
Use this unit study to help teach children that we should show others that we love them. This lesson is based on the commandment to love one another delivered by Christ in the Gospel of St. John 13:31-35.
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus gives the Apostles the commandment to love one another. It is by this love for one each other, for all of mankind, that true followers of Christ are recognizable in the world. We are reminded by Christ’s example that showing love to someone can be as simple as using kind words in a greeting, yet as difficult as forgiving those who persecute you. As Christians, we should always try to show others that we love them—even if we don’t necessarily like them.
