This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. —John 15.12
that is, with tender attention and stout resilience, that is, despite your blame and fear, your betrayal yet to come, your lack of repentance,
as I have loved you when you were determined not to deserve it,
that you love as I have, withholding nothing, excusing no one,
that you pour yourself out for the unworthy,
as I have pour yourself out of your life into eternal love and as I have rise new, perfected in love.
