Simon Peter said in reply. 

June 29, 2021 3:00 am

“Jesus asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say that the Son of Man is?’ They replied, ‘Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ He said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’ Simon Peter said in reply, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.’” (MK 16: 13-16)

Sometimes we are missing the true identity of Our Lord; He could be a friend, a comforter, the One Who answers our needs, or he could be the one who seems blind and deaf when we need Him. We could admire Him or ignore Him; we could believe in Him or fight with Him. The Church has an authority to expand our ideas, to show us the true meaning: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 

“You are Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my Church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.” (Gospel Acclamation)
