Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 21:20-25.

Peter turned and saw the disciple following whom Jesus loved, the one who had also reclined upon his chest during the supper and had said, “Master, who is the one who will betray you?”
When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about him?”
Jesus said to him, “What if I want him to remain until I come? What concern is it of yours? You follow me.”
So the word spread among the brothers that that disciple would not die. But Jesus had not told him that he would not die, just “What if I want him to remain until I come? (What concern is it of yours?)”
It is this disciple who testifies to these things and has written them, and we know that his testimony is true.
There are also many other things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written.

Reflection from a layman:

Are you often curious about the destiny of others? Does your curiosity stem out of Pride or Envy or just to know so “I can talk about it?” Jesus said to Peter “What concern is it of yours? You, follow me!” You cannot predetermine for Jesus how he desires to relate with another, be satisfied with or try to improve your personal relationship with Him by doing exactly what He tells you to do “Follow me(Jesus)”
If ever the urge to gossip about another comes to you remember Jesus said “What concern is it of yours?”
