3rd SUNDAY OF EASTER -C- May 1, 2022

Acts 5: 27-32, 40-41; Psalm 30; Revelation 5: 11-14; John 21: 1-19

by Jude Siciliano, OP


From today’s Gospel reading:


Peter was distressed that Jesus had said to him a third time,
“Do you love me?” and said to him,
“Lord you know everything, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.”

 

Reflection:


Perhaps, like Peter, we too might count one, two or three times recently when we have denied Jesus by our words or actions. At the beginning of today’s Eucharist we made a three-fold request for mercy –  “Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy.” That was our Peter-moment – our chance to be reminded of Jesus’ love for us, even though we are sinners. It was also an opportunity to add, “Lord you know everything, you know that I love you.”

 

So we ask ourselves:

 

  • What shape do my denials of Jesus take in my daily life?

  • How can I stop those denials and concretely do better at affirming my faith in the risen Christ?
