Commentary on the Gospel of
Lectio Divina - REFLECTION
• Mark 8:27 – 35: Peter professes his faith in Jesus but does not understand as Jesus predicts his passion. Jesus gives a teaching on discipleship.
• Notice the exchange with Peter. How does it differ from the section in Matthew 16 where Jesus gives Peter the keys to the kingdom of heaven?
• Just because a person has grown up with Jesus does not mean the person has accepted Jesus. Pray for the grace to accept the teachings of Jesus, even when they seem difficult. Pick up the daily cross of living.
• Do not complain about your life situation. You can always find someone who is worse off than you are.
