Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 6th Sunday of Easter.
Use this unit study to help teach children that God is always with us. It is based on Christ's promise not to abandon the Apostles in the Gospel of St. John 14:15-21.
This lesson helps us to know the depths of God’s love for us. Christ said that His Father in Heaven would also love those who love Him. Jesus would recognize one’s love by their obedience to His commandments. As Christ promises not to abandon the Apostles, we can see the parallel of love that God has for each of us. Just as the Spirit of Truth came to the Apostles, God comes to us in the seven Sacraments of the Church because He loves us and wants to be with us always.
