6th Sunday of Easter

St. Pius X | News

Jesus not only told his disciples what to do but also gave them a standard by which to measure their love.  He said, “Love one another as I have loved you.”  This love knows no limits.  This love symbolizes total self-giving.  Perhaps one of the reasons why both the Lord and his beloved disciple constantly […]
