WHO AND WHY

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” – Matthew 16:15

Especially for politicians, surveys are tools in gauging popularity, doing propaganda or promoting a platform.
In today’s passage, Jesus asks everyone a survey question, “Who do you say I am?” But Jesus didn’t ask out of selfish gain. He wasn’t interested to know how popular He was. Instead, He asked because His own disciples needed to know how close they were to God and what kind of relationship they had with Him.
Peter excelled in his response because God enabled him. Jesus acknowledged the anointing and Peter, an uneducated fisherman enlightened by the Holy Spirit, became our first Pope.
He is like that bishop who was asked why he became a priest. Fatigued after a long day and without even thinking, he answered, “Because I love Jesus.” As he said it, he began to cry because, just like Peter, he knew the answer was from his heart. Rod Velez (rod.velez@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
When Jesus asks you, “Who do you say that I am?” where does your answer come from?

More than possessions, first among anyone, greater than any ambition, lead me to love You most of all; not only intellectually but from my heart and soul.
