The following is from our Associate Pastor, Fr. Bill Crowe:

Who do you say that I am?

In this Gospel passage Jesus asks, “Who do people say that I am?” People’s answers reflect that they know about Jesus. They heard about Jesus or they heard about things that Jesus was doing. They did not know WHO Jesus was. Peter’s answer reflects that he knows Jesus. Peter spent time with Jesus. Peter laughed with Jesus and Peter cried with Jesus. He had a
relationship with Jesus. When Peter is empowered by the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, he will understand Jesus’ mission of salvation and how Jesus will use him to build the Church.

Jesus wants us to know him. He does not just want us to know about him or read about him or hear things he did. Jesus wants to have a real and personal relationship with us. Just like Peter we need to spend time with Jesus so we can get to know him. We need to be in conversation with Jesus and we need to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus. When we receive the Body and Blood of Jesus we are one with him in a very special way. Jesus will speak to our hearts and reveal to us how we are being called to build up the Body of Christ.

We received the Holy Spirit when we were baptized. Let us ask the Holy Spirit to guide us so when Jesus asks us “Who do you say that I am?”, we will answer with actions that show we know Jesus is the Son of God sent to save us from our sins.

Prayer For Priestly Vocations
Prayed at the Ordination of Fr. Eben McDonald and Fr. Nabor Rios on June 3, 2012

Father, in every generation you provide ministers of Christ and the Church. We come before you now, asking that you call forth more men to serve our Archdiocese in the ministerial priesthood.
Give us priests who will lead and guide your holy people gathered by Word and Sacrament. Bless us with priestly vocations so that we can continue to be a truly Eucharistic Church, strengthened in our discipleship of Jesus Christ, your Only Son.
Raise up, we pray, men who are generous in their service, willing to offer their lives and all their gifts for your greater glory and for the good of your people.
We make our prayer in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, through Christ, Our Lord.
