Quick Bytes #54: Feeding Sheep

.
"Feed my sheep."

Peter and his fellow Apostles saw the risen Jesus ...
and went right back to living the life they did before meeting Him.

That wasn't the Lords plan for them - and it isn't His plan for us.

So he appeared to Peter again, and reminded him that his job was that of a Shepherd - not a fisherman.

And in today's Gospel, he is reminding us that just going about our daily lives isn't enough.

We have to continually strengthen His flock - and spread His word to every corner of the world.

  1. Michael, were you at my Church this Sunday?

    What you say here is what our priest said in his sermon. On second thoughts, perhaps our priest reads your Quick Bytes here.

    God bless you.

  2. I like your perspective on the gospel. I have always loved this reading. And when Jesus says - Feed my sheep," I am so moved by that.
    Thanks. God bless.
