Do you love me more than these

May 13, 2016 6:00 am

“‘Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?’” Simon Peter answered him, ‘Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my lambs.’” (JN 21: 15) 

All authority in the Church comes first of all from Our Lord, Who is the only One Who chooses us and gives us our role and functions, and second of all, it comes from love. Simon Peter was chosen by Our Lord to be THE Peter, the rock, the supreme shepherd and ruler over the whole flock, and the one who will be responsible for the Church with the other Apostles in the name of Jesus. After Our Lord’s resurrection He asked him only one question—“do you love me more than these”?

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