Liturgical notes

In proclaiming the Year of the Eucharist in 2004, St John Paul II wrote:

We cannot delude ourselves: by our mutual love and, in particular, by our concern for those in need we will be recognised as true followers of Christ. This will be the criterion by which the authenticity of our Eucharistic celebrations is judged.

Mane Nobiscum Domine, §28

Again our readings today invite us to make this examination of conscience. How do we live this criterion given us by St John Paul? Our Easter season recalls for us the glory that has been given us in baptism: to be the children of God. As we have been loved by our God, so we too must love one another.

‘O sing a new song to the Lord, for he has worked wonders; in the sight of the nations he has shown his deliverance, alleluia.’

—entrance antiphon
