Saint John is the beloved of God. He lives to an old age and is an important witness to the Good News that Jesus has risen from the dead.

Every disciple of Jesus is beloved of God. We are all kin of Saint John, the beloved. May I see myself today as the beloved of God.

Dear Jesus, thank you for loving me today just as I am. As I strive for holiness, may I accept myself wholly as the beloved of God.
