As I have loved you

                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.
