Carry that cross

22 Sunday in Ordinary Time
CycleA
Gospel: MATTHEW 16 : 21 - 27

One time Jesus called Simon “Peter” meaning, “Rock”; on it he would build his Church. But in the gospel, Jesus called Simon “satan”.


Peter was like any of us, wavering in faith, capable of making wrong decisions. The only difference is that he was able to walk on the waters, while we would not even think about the totally impossible. Peter thus had faith which we don’t have.


Let’s utilize every resource to get to know the Lord. Let’s possess Christ’s loving heart. Let us commit as Jesus did – up to the cross. If it means saving our children and working for a better world, why not?


Let us commit ourselves to doing good and doing God’s will.
