Reflection on the Gospel-Vigil of the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul (John 21:15-19)

My favourite place of worship is the church in Buninyong dedicated to Saints Peter and Paul where our local community gathers each Sunday. So it is our feast this weekend. As it is the fifth Sunday of the month, we’ll all be there at 10.30 on Sunday morning. While the gospel story is a little vignette from John 21 about Peter, we honour Paul as well. We might also acknowledge our forbears in faith whose gospel witness receives less attention in our sacred texts than that of the designated leaders.
