Gospel: Mark 8: 27-33
He spoke this openly (Mk 8:32)
Jesus asked the disciples who He is. He heard answers and taught them who He is. He spoke of the hardships that he will encounter, even His own death. Are we the same? Do we speak openly of who we are? Of our greatest sufferings? Or do we only share our accomplishments? Today, Jesus encourages us to speak openly and bravely to Him of who we are as how He did to his disciples.
Mother Mary, we pray for the time and space to have an open and honest dialogue with Jesus with whatever we are going through right now.
