Letter from Father Richard
It is wonderful to observe people as they develop as human beings. It is no less wonderful to observe the development of Jesus in the gospels.
Today marks a landmark in His relationships with Peter and the other disciples. Who do you say I am? Sooner or later each of us will be faced with that question. Many will evade answering it, and for as long as they do, any kind of commitment to Christ is not possible. It is not until we answer it that Jesus can entrust us with mission.
In Peter’s case his mission was to be head of the church . . . ours will develop as we ask, seek and knock. Do not be afraid, I am with you always, ‘til the end of time.
Have a good week.
