And then Jesus asks him, three times, "Do you love me?" In the Greek, the word for love Jesus uses is much stronger than the word Peter uses in response. It is as if Jesus said, Peter, do you love me completely, unreservedly and totally? And Peter said, I love you in the usual sort of way.

The Beauty of Fr. Scalia's Funeral Homily CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 23, 2016 Fr. Paul Scalia's homily at the funeral of his father, Justice Antonin Scalia, was "remarkable in its moving profundity," as one of my colleagues wrote. But why was the homily so good?

Always Say What Needs to Be Said, and Always With Love (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - February 2, 2016 ... because I love you? Awkward? Probably. But if we can't manage to communicate God's love to people, then don't even claim you're speaking God's message. And if you're not sure just how to explain some of the things we believe, in terms of God's love, then we have more work to do ourselves to understand what God teaches and asks of us. For example, perhaps we're not sure how to explain why marriage is a man and a woman, not two men or two women.
