The Last Supper: "I no longer call you slaves. I have called you friends"

Pili Piñero
Friday of the Fifth Week of Easter
Gospel text
Jn 15:12-17
"You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves."
Gospel's Commentary
Today we hear from Jesus’ lips "you are my friends", especially if we strive to follow His teachings. We are no longer God’s servants, but His friends! In addition, after the resurrection of Jesus Christ our status still rose even more. Jesus said to Mary Magdalene: "Go and tell my brothers ...” Jesus’ brothers of and, with Jesus, God’s children! Can you think of something bigger? — How should a brother of Jesus, a son of God, act? "My command is this: love each other as I have loved you."
