""Who do you say I am?"" Mark 8 : 27

In to-day’s Gospel Jesus is testing his disciples,  preparing them for the future.  Was he really wanting to know if they are authentic followers;  he was readying them to stand up and declare that they would be his true disciples.

And what about us Christians to-day?  In many respects our age is one of abundance,  but amid all this abundance there remains a great hunger in the people to-day,  a longing to become all we were created to be.  Everything good in the future for our families,  our communities,  our Church,  our nation,  and humanity depends on whether or not we will follow this longing!  (Quoted from Matthew Kelly’s Rediscovering Catholicism)

Prayer My heart begs you, Lord hear me, so I can have faith. "I beg you, make me free, so I can live your laws." (Psalm 119) Amen
