Thought for the day When Jesus presses the question, who do you say I am?, we feel him speaking to us. Naturally, we think of our faith now in the light of our own journey of life and pilgrimage of faith. How did I start out? What was my image of Jesus then and how did I relate to him? Have there been major turning points for me and can I name one or two? How have I deepened my familiarity with Jesus and who is he for me now? If I were to choose an image or a metaphor what would come to kind? If I were to explain to someone what my faith in Jesus is, what words would I use? Prayer For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. (Eph. 3:14-17) KOM

Peter has been called a stumbling saint.
He is a great consolation to us
Because all of us are inconstant in our beliefs.
But we must not judge ourselves or others
by momentary inconsistencies
but by commitment given over a long time.
Jesus was well aware of Peter’s faults,
but he saw that, in spite of everything,
his heart was sound.
Which meant that he had the ability to love.
And in the long run, love is what counts
