“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. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.’” (Mt 16:16-18)
Peter’s identity connects him with Jesus, is based on Him and His identity. The more we are connected with Our Lord, the more we understand our unique vocation, our role in this world. It could be as simple as being a married couple or more difficult like being a pope, but it shoulb be always related to Him.
“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)
