A Collect to Love as Christ Loved

Great teacher, who loved your disciples to the end, may love be the foundation of our relationships with one another, that our community would reflect the community that you have with the Father and Holy Spirit and be an extension of the love that you gave to those who followed you in Israel, through you who lives in perfect union with the Father and Holy Spirit world without end. Amen. ‘I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.’ – John 13:34
