Gospel: John 21:15–19
“Do you love me?...Feed my sheep.” – John 21:17
In today’s Gospel, Jesus is not really trying to know if Peter loves Him but is trying to know how faithful Peter is to thelove that he has for his master.
Love is not only about words proclaimed, but it is also about actions committed. This principle called Peter into commitment as he proclaimed his love to Jesus – a mission to feed the hungry sheep of the Good Shepherd.
Today, we are called to act out our love for Jesus by fulfilling our mission to others – our mission to love.
