ST. LEO THE GREAT CHURCH
FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA
www.stleofairfax.com
Dear Friends,
“My children, I will be with you only a lile while longer.
I give you a new commandment: love one another.
As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.
This is how all will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another.”
Our Gospel this weekend brings us back to the Last
Supper as the Lord tries to prepare His disciples for His
imminent death. For St. John, the “glory” of the Lord is
manifested firstly not by His glorious resurrec+on but by
His death on a cross. This might seem strange to us but it
makes perfect sense. The perfect and infinite love and
obedience of the Son restores what was lost to the human
race by the sin and disobedience of our first parents. Jesus
never expressed admira+on for sin nor did He fail to
admonish and call to repentance and conversion the
sinners whom He loved. The sacrificial love of Jesus
demonstrated in the cross is the triumph of love over sin.
Jesus reconciles and forgives and brings into
communion with Him and the Father with no glint of
coercion but always with an invita+on which much be
responded to freely, even if imperfectly at +mes. Jesus
speaks clearly: “As I have loved you, so you also should
love one another”. We need to aen+vely and prayerfully
read the Scriptures, par+cularly the interac+ons with
sinners, to understand what this means. Divine mercy is
not cheap. Jesus never simply tries to make people feel
good in their sin but calls them to radical change of heart
and life. He never just “talks the talk” but truly “walks the
walk” all the way up to Calvary and the cross. The Lord
gives us a model of le0ng go of all things, even life itself, in
order to bestow new and Eternal Life. We love as He loved
when we live out the same mystery in our own lives. What
is the Lord asking us to let go of not only for our salva+on,
but for the salva+on of others?
In Christ,
Rev. David A. Whitestone
