Reflections GOSPEL: Matthew 16: 13-19

St. Peter was the first to make a profession of faith in Jesus as the Messiah. Peter also denied Jesus, not just once, but three times, and then professed his love for Jesus three times. He trusted Jesus enough to walk on water in the midst of a storm, but began to doubt when he noticed the waves in the storm. He was a disciple of strength (the rock), of weakness (denial), of love (you know I love you), of trust (walking on water), of doubt (he gets scared and falls down into the water). Doesn’t Peter give you hope? Pray that you will know Jesus’ love for you and always be willing to ‘bounce back’ like St. Peter, even when things go wrong.

1. Can you accept loving but weak members in the Church, both leaders and faithful?

2. Can you accept a Church that is at times sinful?
