With five words in today's gospel, Jesus has 'raised the bar' in relation to what love looks like. Jesus tells us that we are to love "as I have loved you." His love is unconditional, merciful, generous, and is a free gift. In comparison, in our human condition, our love may not always reflect these divine qualities. In the resurrection of Jesus we believe, as reflected in the book of Revelation today, that God is "making the whole creation new." God's love is always capable of forming, reforming, and transforming.
