Sep 13

Jesus asks the disciples a pointed and difficult question about his identity:

Who do you say that I am?

Peter jumps straight in and gets the answer right – except that his expectations of Jesus as Messiah were very different to Jesus own sense of call. So Peter gets in the way and the challenge Jesus gives him provokes us to think also about what we expect from the Messiah.

We reflect on the difficult path that others have taken in answer to this question but also discover that we are not called to be bleeding martyrs but rather energetic and willing co-creators alongside Jesus towards God’s way.
