Like a grain of wheat that falls into the earth and dies so that it might bear fruit, so Jesus came to this world, offering himself for us, and teaching us to imitate him in this way of self-giving love. “No one has greater love than this,” he tells us, “to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” This is what he has done for us, and it is what we are to do for one another.

-Br. David Vryhof, SSJE
