Gospel: John 15:12-17

Jesus said to his disciples:

‘This is my commandment: 
love one another,
as I have loved you.
A man can have no greater love 
than to lay down his life for his friends.
You are my friends,
if you do what I command you.
I shall not call you servants any more,
because a servant does not know
his master’s business;
I call you friends,
because I have made known to you 
everything I have learnt from my Father.
You did not choose me: 
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you 
to go out and to bear fruit, 
fruit that will last;
and then the Father will give you 
anything you ask him in my name.
What I command you is to love one another.’
