Sts. Peter & Paul
When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" They replied, "Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter said in reply, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God." Jesus said to him in reply, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven" (Matthew 16: 13-19).
Saints Peter and Paul were two men who were very weak. They both did plenty of things of wrong, just like us, but they also loved Jesus heroically. They loved Him 100%, more than anything else. They did plenty of GREAT things. Let’s be more and more like Saints Peter and Paul.
Lord, I want to love you with all my heart, like the Saints did.
