1) Gospel – Jn 15:12-17 – Jesus said to His disciples: “This is My commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. 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. This I command you: love one another.”

How did Title 42 become a key method to curtail the growing crisis at the border? What will its expiration mean for the future of border security?
