May 5 - Third Sunday of Easter: To love like Jesus
Todays Gospel presents to us the scene of Peter's repentance as three times Jesus asks him to make a profession of love. Jesus then explains just what Peter's love and leadership will require, foretelling Peter;s death by crucifixion: "you will stretch out your hands". This is agape love, that is self-forgetting love. Mother Theresa of Calcutta speaks of 'loving till it hurts'. That is Christian love. Can we love this way? Can we love the way Jesus loved?
