Humbly submit your will to God (Thy Will be done) and consecrate yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through Mary.

After Jesus had revealed himself to his disciples and eaten breakfast with them, 
he said to Simon Peter,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?”
Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.”
He then said to Simon Peter a second time,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” 
He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”
He said to him the third time,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time,
“Do you love me?” and he said to him,
“Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.
Amen, amen, I say to you, when you were younger,
you used to dress yourself and go where you wanted; 
but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands,
and someone else will dress you
and lead you where you do not want to go.”
He said this signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God.
And when he had said this, he said to him, “Follow me.” JN 21:15-19

Today we have the three fold repentance of Peter.  Jesus reminds us that we must make up for each and every one of our sins. Whether here on earth or in purgatory.  Each sin hurts our relationship with God.  The great thing is that God’s mercy is infinite (never ends) and His love is more powerful than anything in the world.  It is important for us to realize that Peter repented and Judas did not.  

Today, many people are not repenting.  We all like to rationalize our sins, but sometimes people give up and stop going back to God.  May we say a prayer for those who have fallen away.  If you know someone, be a missionary and live your life in a way that others want to know your secret to happiness and joy.  We can share the doctrine later. Sin and Satan are the toughest battles we will ever face, but God’s grace and love are more powerful.  Never stop coming back to God and repenting.  He wants nothing more than to have our souls back with Him in heaven.  As Jesus says to Peter, “Follow me.”  Do whatever it takes to change and follow Jesus!

Today’s challenge: Jesus died for all humanity and every sin today, make yourself uncomfortable or poor in some area of your life today to remind you of this great sacrifice.  Offer up this discomfort with Christ’s suffering.

Say the Stations of the Cross.  These things are not just meant for Lent, but all throughout the year.

Go to confession and with God’s grace make changes in your life that will lead you away from sin and closer to Jesus.  Amen.

Be a servant, become a saint!
