For the Ride Home
by Ted Bergh
Fifth Sunday of Easter (C)
May 2, 2010
Scripture
•… they called the church together and reported what God had done with them and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. (Acts 14:21)
•…your dominion endures through all generations. (Psalm 145:13)
•Behold, God’s dwelling is with the human race. (Revelations 21:3)
•This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. (John 13:35)
 
Reflection
•How does God dwell in the human race?
•Is love limited by time, space or logic?
•What is an outward sign of the eternal dwelling?

Christ the Lord is a mountain, a mountain gathered and rich. He is a mountain in sublimity, gathered in the bringing together of a multitude, rich in charity. Now see how he draws all things to himself, how he unites all things in unity, substantial, personal, spiritual, sacramental. He has the Father in himself, with whom he is one in substance. He has the assumed humanity, with which he is one person. He has the faithful soul clinging to him, with whom he is one spirit. He has the one church of all the elect, with which he is one flesh.(St. Bernard of Clairvaux)1
