"LOVEST THOU ME?"

From the September 1948 issue of The Christian Science Journal


When Christ Jesus appeared to his disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, he addressed a question to Simon Peter which still calls insistently to every follower of the Christ, Truth. "Lovest thou me?" was addressed to the lovable, impetuous Peter, who had said to Jesus, "Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death," but who later denied him three times in that dark morning hour before the crucifixion.
