GOSPEL  REFLECTION – The Feast of St. Peter and Paul.

This marks a turning point in the life of Jesus, and of the disciples. It is the first time that one of his disciples acknowledge him as the Messiah ‘Who do you say that I am?’ This is possibly the most important question that Jesus puts to us. Jesus praises Peter for his faith and comments that this was not his own doing but a gift of God.These are troubled times for the Church and the promise of Jesus that ‘the gates of the underworld can never hold out against it’ are an encouragement.
