Gospel: Matthew 16:13-19
Shepherd for the flock
“You are Peter and upon this rock
i will build my church” (Mt16:13)
Today is the Feast of the Chair of St Peter the Apostle. It reminds us of the mission and appointment of Peter as the leader of the church in a continuous succession up to the present Pope Francis. How awesome the mind of Jesus who had put structures and developed leaders way ahead of the HR’s today so that the church lived on from one generation to the next benifitting each one of us in this generation!
CBCP declared 2018 as the Year of the Clergy and Concecrated Persons. CBCP Archbishop Valles said, “envisions that clergy and concecrated persons become “renewed” servants leaders who cares most especially to the last, least and lost.
Let us be grateful and pray for them for it is because of their YES that we have heard and received the WORD. And more people are reached through all the ends of the earth.
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet who brings good news” Isaiah 52:7
