Feb 14

We continue reflecting on the Lord’s prayer:

Your kingdom come
Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Jesus and the disciples are in the town of Caesarea Philipi. Jesus asks them about who people think he might be. He then asks the disciples for their own insight. As Peter is congratulated for his divinely inspired response to Jesus, it is amidst the backdrop of a different kingdom. We reflect on Jesus’ kingdom in contrast to Rome, and the sobering reminder that Jesus begins a journey towards crucifixion.
