Ok. But yet again, not just twice
but a third time, the tender but
unnerving question, before you
have had time to settle your
mind and heart.
R
Do You Love Me?
Jesus asks Peter a pointed question in Sunday’s
Gospel. How would you feel if he asked the same
question of you?
Here is the story.
With Jesus dead, the disciples were milling around
on the shore of the Sea of Tiberius. They had not yet
received the Holy Spirit and were left at loose ends.
Peter got tired of this standing around so he said, I’m
going fishing, anybody want to come? They joined
him gladly and they fished all night. All night is unreasonable from our point of view, but not in a fishing
society.
The break of day revealed a man standing on shore.
In the boat, John, the mystic, the one Jesus loved
especially well, whispered hoarsely, “It is the Lord”!!
Peter hurled himself into the water and wobbled the
hundred yards to shore, leaving to someone else the
job of bringing in the boat. It seems that Peter, the
denier, actually loved Jesus very much.
By name he asks, “ _______ ,
Do you love me?” Let the question echo inside you.
Consider your daily attitude toward Jesus and toward
God. Do not say your answer lightly. Give it quietly in
prayer to Jesus, or out loud if you wish. Take your
time. Pay attention to how it feels to say it.
Maybe you will reply as Peter did, “Lord, you know
everything, you know that I love you.”
Or do you have another answer? Something like,
“Lord, you know everything, you know that I want to
love you, but also I want to have a reasonably good
life. You can see the fear and the running away and
distraction I live by—are you going to condemn me
for them? I want to love you but maybe not yet.”
Jesus answers, “Feed my lambs.”
Stay with it. Think about it. Pray about it.
And that is the question. Can you say you love Jesus
very much?
Does it mean that we who are sinful can be part of
Jesus’ mission? We don’t have to be perfect? We
are forgiven? If the answer is yes, then let us consider what the Body of Christ calls us to.
He looks at your face and addresses you by your
name. “ _______ , do you love me more than
these?”
Feed his lambs.
__________
Such a question. What will you say? Give the answer
to the Lord when you are ready, even if it isn't perfect. Put it into words. Don’t read further till you have
done this.
*Notice that there are two lengths for the Gospel for this Sunday,
the long version and the short. Unfortunately, if your parish needs
to use the short one, you will not hear the part about the Jesus'
question. You can read it, though, at John 21:15.
John Foley, SJ
Then, when he hears your answer, listen to him say
to you, “Feed my lambs.”
Phew. Thank God the trial is over and you don’t have
to deal with more questions like that.
But he asks you again, by name, “ _______ , Do you
love me?”
What does the repeated question do to you? He said
loudly, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Our
hearts go out to him, and also to you since you also
have been asked a second time. What is your answer now? Take your time.
After your answer Jesus replies, “Tend my sheep.”

Voy a Pescar
Simón Pedro, el líder controversial de los discípulos
de Jesús, aquel que cuestionaba todo y, por esto, fue
nombrado por Jesús para que confirmara la fe del
grupo, había perdido su bravura. Ya regresaba a su
lago para hacer lo que mejor entendía; iba a pescar.
Seguir a Jesús no hacía la vida ni fácil ni cómoda,
pero todos los discípulos, varones y mujeres, habían
caminado llenos de sueños de un mundo cambiado.
Creían que el mundo perdería su manto de
opresiones y la sombra de la muerte.
Era lo que Jesús anunciaba y ellos confiaban en él.
Sin embargo, todo les había salido mal y no valía la
pena quedarse en Jerusalén esperando apariciones
del Señor. Para la población general, Jesús ya era
otro profeta que había muerto con sus palabras de
esperanza en la boca. Convencidos de la resurrección, pero desilusionados, los discípulos regresaron a
su tierra natal para esperar a Jesús. Sólo su presencia palpable era capaz de cambiar su vida.
Pedro siempre había sido independiente. Su negocio
de la pesca con Zebedeo había dado mucho resultado. Pero hoy él no vuelve a la pesca por motivos
de negocios, sino para escapar de sus sentimientos.
Jesús no se veía. Desilusionados, todos deseamos
volver al mar, la tierra o la familia, a cualquier cosa
sin complicaciones. Pedro quería volver a lo que
mejor entendía.
Pedro conocía el arte de la pesca. Pero Jesús le
había dado la habilidad de pescar a las personas. No
era una tarea fácil, pero todos los discípulos habían
aprendido algo de esa vocación y ministerio.
Page/Página 5
Todos nosotros, junto con la jerarquía, los consejos pastorales,
los comités litúrgicos y los
catequistas debemos aprender
que la Iglesia nunca es primero
institución ni estructura aunque
estas expresiones de su vida
tengan importancia. Al contrario,
el Concilio Vaticano Segundo
evita definir la Iglesia como institución porque espera
ver en los pueblos una acción creadora que renueva
toda institución en base de sus experiencias al compartir la vida del Resucitado. Al prepararse los padres de familia para bautizar o para orientar a sus
hijos en plan de primera comunión, al aprender unos
novios que el matrimonio es más importante que la
boda, y al averiguar los adolescentes la importancia
de un proceso que los confirma en su sentido de servicio para con los demás, comenzamos a ver la Iglesia como un proceso actual y no sólo como una institución histórica.
Una institución siempre tiende a defender los privilegios de sus miembros más acomodados, pero un
proceso sobrevive sólo en la base de compartir confianzas y compañerismo. Un proceso no permite que
la verdad sea un regalo del pasado, sino siempre un
tesoro buscado por los que se juntan en el camino y
el diálogo.
Esto es lo que Pedro busca al aproximarse de nuevo
a la pesca. De nuevo, Jesús le dirá por dónde echar
las redes y, una vez más, los peces saltarán a su
llamado. Las razones son sencillas. Jesús vive y, por
su alegría, atrae a todos; las instituciones son secas
y muertas, ahuyentando a muchos. Jesús es el sacramento que nos muestra el mundo de Dios como
debe ser; él nos abre la posibilidad de ser una humanidad diferente y solidaria, creadora y responsable.
Pescar, como anunciar el reino de Dios, no era como
sembrar y cosechar en el campo. Con la pesca y el
reino, nadie sabe dónde buscarlos. Siempre son
búsquedas de fe.
¿Por qué no vamos con Pedro a pescar para poder
compartir algo de las
A la vez, hay otra comparación que se hace entre la
pesca y el anuncio del Reino de Dios. Los dos representan, no una institución, sino un proceso dentro de
la misma vida. Jesús escogió a unos pescadores como sus discípulos para que se entusiasmaran más
por el proceso de la evangelización que por las instituciones que esa evangelización creara. Claro que
es bueno encontrar lo profundo y bello de gente que
quiere vivir el reino de Dios por adelantado. Pero
también se revela la maravilla del proceso del
acompañamiento que produce ese resultado.

Fallbrook Blankets – An Ongoing Project
Fallbrook is now participating in Warm-Up America warmupamerica.org and you can be a part of helping our less advantaged brothers and sisters stay warm and cuddly. Knit or crochet a 7” X 9”
rectangle using washable acrylic yarn. The patch can be any color, or combination of colors, any stitch, any design. Crochet using
a size G crochet hook. Knit with size 7 needles. If you use wool or
cotton yarn, please label it so it can be used in the same type of
blanket.
Your patch, along with many other 7 X 9 inch pieces will be sewn
together to create a warm and unique blanket. A completed blanket contains 56 patches, is twin-bed size and measures 49 X 72
inches. Finished patches can be placed in the basket located in
the St. Peter’s Church office, the Fallbrook Library, the Senior Center or North County Academy of Dance in Bonsall. You may also
use any free yarn in those baskets. Volunteers are always needed
to crochet the patches together to create the blankets. Donations
of acrylic yarn are always welcome. Each completed blanket will
be on display for one week at the library before being washed and
donated to a needy person at the Fallbrook Food Pantry, women’s/
family shelters in Oceanside, Vista, or Escondido or a veterans
help agency.

STEWARDSHIP CORNER
There is much to digest (literally) in
today’s Gospel Reading from St.
John. It reports the third time that
Jesus appeared to His Apostles. The
Lord appears on the shore of the Sea
of Tiberias, which is another name by
which the Sea of Galilee is known. It
is early in the morning, and Peter and the others had been fishing
unsuccessfully, and obviously were near to the shore, but at Jesus’
urging they cast their nets again and caught many fish, which they
then brought to shore.
According to the Gospel Jesus had breakfast with them, and then
He poses the question to Peter specifically, “Do you love me?” The
exchange between the Lord and Peter is carefully narrated, as are
Jesus’ responses. However, at the end of the Gospel Reading for
today, Jesus says two simple words to Peter, “Follow Me.” Of
course, these are the same two words with which we are familiar
that Jesus used to call Peter and the others in the beginning.
We need to understand that these instructions from Jesus are not
just for the Apostles but for us as well. How have we responded to
that call? Our reaction does not have to be as dramatic as Peter’s
and the others, who abandoned their lives and their livelihood and
became total followers of Christ. However, we, too, need to find the
strength and the commitment to follow the Lord. How we carry that
out is our stewardship, how we live our lives.
