Simon Peter, Do you love me?
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.
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.
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.
