“But that we may not offend them, go to the sea, drop in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up. Open its mouth and you will find a coin worth twice the temple tax. Give that to them for me and for you.” (MT 17: 27)
Our Lord’s relationship with Peter was very unique; He was chosen to be His vicar on earth and represent Him for us. In today’s Gospel Jesus also expressed their connection: “give that to them for me and for you.” When we are chosen to take a mission from Our Lord, He is always close to us and He takes care of us.
“God has called you through the Gospel to possess the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Gospel Acclamation)
