Today’s first reading (1 Peter 5:1-4) on today’s Feast of the Chair of Peter is a wonderful exhortation to people exercising authority in the Church:

Tend the flock of God in your midst,

not for shameful profit

Good words also for all of us, for all of us – shepherds or not – all of us are God’s sheep.

May we treat each other with humility, generosity, and Christ’s love.
