Reflection: Sunday after Sunday the question is posed: where is the Risen Lord to be found? the answer… in the Christian community. The emphasis in today’s readings is on the continuing presence of the Lord through the love of his disciples. The warmth of the Lord’s presence is here for us all through the mutual love of those who follow his commandment to “love one another just as I have loved you”.
