Simon Peter by Sister Evangeline

feedd my sheepSimon Peter, Do you love me?

Jesus asked.

Yes, Lord, Peter answered, You know I love you.

A second time, Jesus asked,

Simon, son of John, Do You love me?

Yes, Lord, You know I love you.

Peter answered.

And Jesus asked again.

Simon, son of John, Do you love me?

And Peter answered,

Lord, you know all things,

You know I love you.

 

Feed my lambs.

Tend my sheep.

Feed my sheep.

Jesus commanded Peter.

 

And I?

Do I love Jesus?

 

Do I feed Jesus’s lambs?

Do I tend Jesus’s sheep?

Do I feed Jesus’s sheep?

 

Where are these lambs that I must feed?

Where are these sheep that I must tend?

Who are these sheep that I must feed?

 

Is it you my sister? You, my brother?

Is it you my neighbor? You my friend?

Is it you my enemy? You whom I don’t know?

 

Yes, It is you that I must tend.

It is you that I must feed.

It is you that I must love.

Teach me Jesus.

Amen.

Sister Evangeline Salazar, OSB
