One Minute Reflection – 21 April Easter Friday
Seventh Day of the Octave

DAILY MEDITATION: Lord, let me love You and feed Your sheep.

Jesus asked a third time,
“Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus
had asked him three times if he loved him.
So he told Jesus,
“Lord, you know everything. You know I love you.”
Jesus replied, “Feed my sheep.”
— John 21:17

REFLECTION – “Those who destroy truth with their lies or detractions deny Christ with their mouths.   In the third chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, Peter says: “You denied the Holy and the Just One before Pilate and desired a murderer to be given to you” (3:14). Pilate, whose name means a “hammermouth,” symbolises a person who lies and detracts others.    Those who tell lies destroy truth as if they had pounded it with a hammer; those who detract others destroy the love of neighbour.    In both cases they deny Christ with their mouths.   Detraction seeks to transform good into evil and to minimize its worth.”
………….St Anthony of Padua [1195-1231] on John 21.17

PRAYER – Our God and Holy Father, purify our hearts with Your truth and guide them in the way of holiness, so that we may do what is pleasing in your sight.
Let your face shine upon us, that we may be freed from sin and filled with Your plenty. That we may radiate the light of Christ Your Son to all we meet and never allow us to sin against any of Your children by lies or detraction.   Teach me to feed Your lambs and Your sheep. Amen
