The Gospel reading from today is one of my most favorite (John 21: 1-19). And, even though my allergies were bothering me today, it was not my allergies, but the Gospel that was making me tear up in mass. There are so many things I love about this reading, but what struck me the most, today, is our commission when we proclaim our love for Christ. Just as Peter's life was truly no longer his own, when he recommitted his love to Christ that morning on the shore, our lives, when lived for Christ are not our own. We are in service to HIM and to those He has placed in our lives. But, even before He asked Peter if he loved HIM, what did HE do? He showed Peter, and us, that HE first takes care of us. That HE loves us and that when we commit to serving HIM and HIS people, HE will take care of all of our needs. What a great message to start our weeks on!
Have a great week everyone!
