Christ’s appearance to seven of his disciples on the
shore of Lake Tiberias marks an important step in
the growth of paschal faith. As the Father sent his
Son into the world, so the Lord Jesus will send his
disciples on mission. The overwhelming catch of
fish from the lake is a living parable of the church’s
apostolic activity. The Risen Christ is the source of
his fruitfulness.
Just like the apostles who went back to their nets
after the tragedy of the passion, we too are sometimes tempted to lose hope. What if our faith in the
resurrection were not more than a religious tradition? What if Christ no longer dwells in this established Church, which seems so rooted in defensiveness and little given to apostolic boldness? If that
were so, we might be tempted to return to the reassuring banality of our everyday tasks. Or we might
be tempted to organize ourselves into a Christian
ghetto, separate from those who might upset our
certitudes. We could dream nostalgically of the
Church of former times when faith was takes for
granted and religion ruled society.
But Christ stands on the shores of this world,
more involved than ever, and he calls us to throw
away our nets. We do not always recognize him at
the first meeting, but he is there. He calls to us from
the heart of our communities, in the commitments of
those who seek the truth, who love and who forgive,
who struggle for a better and more just world. He is
there above all in that meal where we share his
We can all take heart in today’s Gospel. The risen
Jesus appears to the disciples and asks Simon Peter
three times, “Do you love me?” To each question
Peter replies, “You know I love you,” and Jesus
tells him to feed and tend his lambs and sheep. We
should remember that it was around another charcoal fire only a few days earlier that Peter had denied three times that he even knew Jesus, and that
afterward he went outside and wept. Our behavior,
like Simon Peter’s, can sometimes be a betrayal of
our Lord and Savior, but the Good News is that sin
and failure is not a permanent break in our relationship with God and other people—unless we choose
to make it so. In Peter, his reckless, hasty, and enthusiastic disciple, Jesus must have seen a very big
heart and an even greater willingness to persevere,
no matter what came his way, because Jesus trusted
him with leadership of the little flock of believers.
Peter followed Jesus faithfully, all the way to his
own death by crucifixion in Rome.
Get up Eight cont...
He was a flawed human being but we proclaim him a great
saint of the Church. We, too, are flawed and God knows it, but
God works with us and through us if we allow God to do so.
The Japanese have a saying: “Fall down seven times, get up
eight,” which is one way we could describe the Christian life.
The falling down is painful, but it does not matter as long as
we get up again and continue on.

Todos debemos tomar a pecho el Evangelio de hoy. Jesús resucitado se aparece a los discípulos y le pregunta tres veces a
Pedro: “¿Me amas?” A cada pregunta Pedro responde: “Tú
sabes que te amo” y Jesús le pide que apaciente sus ovejas.
Debemos recordar que sólo unos días antes, alrededor de otra
fogata, Pedro había negado tres veces que ni siquiera conocía a Jesús y después salió afuera a llorar. Nuestro comportamiento, igual que el de Simón Pedro, puede ser una traición
a nuestro Señor y Salvador, pero tenemos la Buena Nueva de
que el pecado y los fracasos no rompen permanentemente
nuestra re-lación con Dios y los demás—a no ser que nosotros
tomemos esa decisión. En Pedro, este discípulo imprudente,
precipitado y entusiasta, Jesús debe haber visto un gran
corazón y una voluntad aún mayor de perseverar a pesar de
los obstáculos, pues Jesús le confió el liderazgo del pequeño
rebaño de cre-yentes. Pedro siguió a Jesús fielmente hasta su
propia crucifixión en Roma. Fue un ser humano con defectos,
pero lo proclamamos en la Iglesia como un gran santo.
Nosotros también tenemos defectos y Dios los conoce, pero
obra en nosotros y por medio de nosotros con sólo permitírselo. Los japoneses tienen este dicho: “Cae siete veces,
levántate ocho”, lo cual es una manera de describir la vida
cristiana. Caer es doloroso, pero se le resta importancia mientras que nos levantemos de nuevo y continuemos el camino.
