Sts Peter and Paul (S)

Acts 12:1-11; Ps 34; 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 17-18; Matthew 16:13-19

Jesus looked at Peter

Given the church's present state, not a few people are bewildered. Has Jesus forgotten his promise to Peter? The living God enabled Simon Peter to recognise the Son of God. Even so, when the time of trial came, Peter wavered, "I do not know the man." So it is understandable if some of us are finding our faith being tested. But then Jesus looked at Peter, and he remembered. Let Jesus look at you and remember. Jesus has not forgotten, so who has? Evil will not prevail.
