I recently attended the First Communion celebration of a young friend from our parish. Noah was smiling from ear to ear through much of his special day. At one point, my husband asked him how he felt. He replied, “I feel like a disciple!” We thought that was an apt response!

In the weeks, months, and years to come, we intend to help him unpack what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus clearly tells us what will set us apart from others: “This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:34).

May 12 was the last lesson of the 2018–19 year of the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies. If your classes continue beyond that Sunday, there are free Late Close Lessons at each level that include a general lesson on the parables and Creation, as well as one for Pentecost. They are available for Seeds, Promise, Good News, Venture, and Visions. Those who have purchased the Activity Books will find three additional Late Close Lessons for each level there as well.
