“having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.” John 13:1 . St. John Chrysostom comments that the Lord Jesus Christ did great acts from the very beginning of His ministry. Now that the time had come for Him to leave them and ascend to the Father, the Lord embraced them with His ultimate love through the cross. This would support them after His ascension. We too need to offer sacrificial love to all those around us every second of our lives for we do not know when we will depart from this world. Then we would leave an inheritance of love and memories of unforgettable loving deeds.
