Gospel Reflection

Maureen McKenney
Assistant Director, Student Development

 
In reflecting on today’s Gospel, I found myself certain of one thing: If I were Simon Peter, I would definitely sound like I knew Jesus was the Messiah. But sounding confident and being confident are two vastly different things, and I find myself wondering, would I believe it? Would I have the depth of faith and unwavering conviction to say—as an actual fact—that the man standing in front of me was the Messiah, Son of the living God? Or would I say it out loud, simply to try it on, to consider the possibility, still filled with the hesitation and skepticism of my own faith?

Saint of the Day

Sts. Peter and Paul, the two pillars of the Church who showed the way to all Christians--pray for us!
