Commentary on the Gospel of
Jesus didn’t just come out and tell the disciples that he was the Son of God. Rather, through his word and example, he led them gradually to understand the truth. He didn’t impose it. Today’s gospel is an important moment in their journey of discovery and Jesus uses the moment to prepare the disciples for his passion and death. Let us pray that today we don’t just pay lip service to our profession of faith but that we also accept the consequences and give ourselves wholeheartedly to the service of Christ and our brothers and sisters.
