From today’s Gospel, from St Mark: ‘And Jesus went on with his disciples, to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do men say that I am?” And they told him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others one of the prophets.” And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.”’

‘You are the Christ’. If Our Lord were to ask you the question, ‘Who do you say that I am?’, what would your answer be? It would be good to spend a while today with that question, and your answer. When you have it, you could write down and keep it with you for the day. Or, if there is a difficulty with your answer, perhaps spend some time in prayer today, asking the help of the Holy Spirit to take you to a deeper level of understanding.

May Christ be your joy, your light, your life, and may He bless you this day.
