Prayers - Novena to Jesus Our Joy - Refuge, by Carissa CarisseJesus said…
“As the Father loves me,
so I also love you.
Remain in my love.
If you keep my commandments,
you will remain in my love….
I am telling you this
so that you may have my joy in you
and that your joy may be complete.
This is my commandment:
love one another just as I love you!
There is no greater love than this:
to lay down your life for your friends.
You are my friends
if you do what I command you….
I call you my friends, because…
it was not you who chose me,
but I who chose you
and commissioned you to go forth
and bear good fruit that will last,
so that whatever you ask the Father in my name
he will give to you.
This I command you: love one another.”
(John 15:9-17)
