Do you love me more than these

May 18, 2018 6:00 am

“After Jesus had revealed himself to his disciples and eaten breakfast with them, he said to Simon Peter, ‘Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?’ Simon Peter answered him, ‘Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.’” (JN 21: 15)

This is the question we should ask ourselves daily: “do I love Him more than these?” This is not to compare ourselves with others, but to remember that this is the purpose of our lives: to love more. We can find pictures or t-shirts with a message from an old song (“Spiral Staircase”) : I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow. Do you love me more?

“The Holy Spirit will teach you everything and remind you of all I told you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
