Dear Brother's & Sisters,
At the beginning of the Baptism Rite, the deacon or priest asks the parents: Do you clearly understand what you are undertaking? The answer is: we do. The same question is assumed and answered when we embark upon marriage, or ordination. An inner voice always says within me: No you don’t! In fact, how can anyone know what they are undertaking when they embark upon a new direction in life? However, I can always answer with conviction if I believe that God is on the scene. I know that He will be my sureness in my doubt, my strength in my weakness and my resolve when I am like jelly.
Peter answers with conviction because he knows he wants above all to follow Jesus……. But how, he does not yet know. All of us have to answer the question: Who do you say I am in our way or other, at many stages of our lives. May our answer be: Jesus the Saviour of the world and my saviour.
Have a good week!
