Twenty Fourth Week Ordinary Time

Isaiah 50:5-9, Ps 116, James 2:14-18,
Mark 8:27-35


“Jesus asked them, ‘but who do you say I am?’ Peter answered, ‘you are the Messiah, the Christ.’” When I was a teenager, I remember wondering how to relate to Jesus. I was used to saying prayers, but I wasn’t satisfied with the relationship. I gradually came to an awareness that I could relate to Jesus in a personal way. He wasn’t distant. I could talk to him and he would listen. I also know him as Jesus Christ who is God and human. What a mystery!
