Sunday Sermon 5/12/13

Today's gospel is part of the so-called "Priestly Prayer" where Christ prays for Himself, His immediate followers and for those followers to come. It is Christ's prayer before His death and is composed of gigantic concepts: The Trinity, Unity of the followers, and a remarkable description of the fluid connection among God, Christ and humanity.
This is a beautiful gospel, readable and profound. One small point: "Father, I will that where I am, they also whom thou hast given me, because thou hast loved me before the creation of the world." Christ is loved by the Father before the creation of the world.
And Christ's followers are more than believers, they are the Father's gift to Christ!
