DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Who is Jesus?”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus asked His disciples, “Who do you say I am?”  Peter responded, “The Christ of God.”  Are we able to respond clearly and with deep commitment who Jesus is to us?  If so, does Jesus influence and affect our lives daily especially in times of trials and tribulations?

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 9:18-22

One day Jesus was praying alone, and his disciples came to him and he put this question to them, ‘Who do the crowds say I am?’ And they answered, ‘Some say John the Baptist; others Elijah; others again one of the ancient prophets come back to life.

‘But you,’ he said to them, ‘who do you say I am?’ It was Peter who spoke up. ‘The Christ of God,’ he said.

But he gave them strict orders and charged them not to say this to anyone. He said, ‘The Son of man is destined to suffer grievously, to be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death, and to be raised up on the third day.’
