Dear Friend in the Lord,

Who is Jesus?” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus wanted His disciples to know and believe in the Truth that He is “Christ, the Son of God.”  Ponder on, “Do we live our faith and pray superficially?  And, do we make the needed efforts and sacrifices to know, love and serve Jesus as fully as we ought to?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 9:18-22

One day when Jesus was praying alone in the presence of his disciples he put this question to them, ‘Who do the crowds say I am?’ And they answered, ‘John the Baptist; others Elijah; and others say 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 not to tell anyone about this. ‘The Son of man’ he said ‘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.’
