John 21: 20-25

Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; he was the one who had reclined next to Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?” When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about him?” Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!” So the rumor spread in the community that this disciple would not die. Yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?” This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and has written them, and we know that his testimony is true. But there are also many other things that Jesus did; if every one of them were written down, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.

This weekend brings us to the end of our 2015 Lent and Easter journey with the Lord. St. Ignatius encourages us as such moments to “go back and notice” the ways God has moved in our hearts during over this season that began on Ash Wednesday. What have been the gifts and graces of this holy season? What challenges have I met? How has the Risen Lord invited me to welcome him into my heart and home, my work and leisure? And just how will I incorporate this personal and spiritual growth into the summer months to come?

Today’s gospel offers us an appropriate insight and question. Peter is concerned about John and his future. Jesus simply says “Your business is to follow me.” Helpful advice for each one of us this weekend of transition.

Please share the Good Word with your friends!

St. Ignatius’s First Principle and Foundation says “The goal of our life is to live with God forever. God, who loves us, gave us life. Our own response of love allows God's life to flow into us without limit.” One of the ways in which we respond to the love God has given us is through prayer, not only personal prayer but community prayer as well. The Pastoral Ministry Center invites members of our Strake Jesuit Community to share their prayers with us: their concerns, joys, thanksgivings, so that we may walk with them in all these times of their lives.
