“Simon Peter said in reply, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ Jesus said to him in reply, ‘Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father.’” (ML 16: 16-17)
The Heavenly Father, Whose love Our Lord was presenting and proclaiming, always is involved. We divided God’s plan into three segments: creation, redemption, and sanctification, seeing Persons of the Holy Trinity active in different areas (God the Father—creation, Our Lord—redemption, and Holy Spirit—sanctification), but God, Who is One, is present in every activity. When we receive some responsibilities in the Church, God is always helping, leading, and protecting.
“You are Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my Church; the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.” (Verse before the Gospel)
