Readings for today’s Mass
i like the idea of the anonymous disciple because it opens a door for us to step into the gospel. Remember the narratives of Jesus' baptism and the voice saying This is my beloved who makes me so happy. i sometimes invite others to think of their own baptism as a time of standing in the Jordan River and hearing those same words spoken of them, as the beloved who pleases God greatly.
Suppose you try the same exercise with the disciple whom Jesus loved. Maybe there is no name to make room for your own name. What if you could imagine those words referring to you - as the one whom Jesus loved? Can you imagine it?
It doesn't say that Jesus loved this one most, or more than the others. Doesn't he, in belief, love us all? Aren't we all the disciple whom Jesus loved?
This is what we celebrate today. This is what the death and resurrection of Jesus testifies to; that Jesus loves us all to the point of his own death. He did that for the disciple whom he loved. He did that for you.
