Remain in my love

I have called you friends,
because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.
Occasionally I will post a link to a film, or television programme better illustrating all that I wish to convey to those sufficiently interested to understand how Jesus' invitation to love ones neighbour can be implemented.
Yesterday evening quite by chance, or by design I was inspired to watch an American television programme from 1963 illustrating the wisdom of today's readings. An ambitious young physician has dreams of becoming financially successful when answering an advert inviting physicians to buy a million dollar hospital. This programme is very well scripted, and superbly acted by William Shatner before his Star trek days, and the great Charles Bickford demonstrating his skills as a character actor to overflowing.
The value of this programme is revealed in the growing awareness of the ambitious young physician that serving those in need of his practical assistance, becomes much more rewarding than filling his bank account.
