AUGUST 31: Last weekend, we hear of Peter correctly naming Jesus as the Messiah. This weekend, we hear of Jesus correcting Peter. The Messiah was seen as someone who would save the people from the hands of the Romans, from the corrupt leaders who were guiding them.
However Jesus as Messiah, was one who came to free the people from problems of sin and death. There was a bigger picture. He may have been born of a woman, but he was human and divine. We are inclined to try to adopt Jesus into our way of thinking. Like Peter, we want to fit Jesus into our expectations.
As we pray during the week, we need to ask ourselves, what motivates us in our everyday lives? Do we work with a positive or a negative attitude? How do we communicate this attitude to the people that we come into contact with each day?
Church Office Hours are Tuesday - Friday, 9:00 am to noon. Fr. Mark will be available in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
