Jesus Christ is risen, ALLELUIA
He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was distressed that He had said to him a third time, “Do you love Me?” and he said to him, “Lord, You know everything; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep."
Do we, like St. Peter, get frustrated when Our Lord asks us if we love Him? When He places a challenge before us? Peter denied Jesus 3 times, and Jesus asked him 3 times. How many times must Jesus ask us? That is truly something to meditate on, when we face a trial in our lives- whether the trial be small or big. Lord, what are you trying to teach me? Lord, YES, I love You. Thy will be done.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
