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.
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.
