DG BookGospel: Mt 16:13-19
After that, Jesus came to Caesarea Philippi. He asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They said,
“For some of them, you are John the Baptist; for others Elijah, or Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.”
Jesus asked them, “But you, who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus


replied, “It is well for you, Simon Barjona, for it is not flesh or blood that has revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And
now I say to you: You are Peter; and on this Rock I will build my Church; and never will the powers of death overcome it. I will give
you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you unbind on
earth shall be unbound in heaven.”

 

Reflection:

Jesus is now famous all over Israel. People have formed an opinion
of Him. He now wants to know what people think of Him. Here the apostles
tell Him that He is ranked among the prophets of old. Some people think
of Him as Elijah, the mightiest of all prophets of old. Some think He is
John resurrected. Many could not make heads or tails regarding Him. But
His disciples know Him. Simon Peter proclaimed Him Messiah, the Son of
God. With this knowledge comes great responsibility. Thus He gave Simon Peter
the ministry of shepherding the new community that will be born from His Word
and Eucharist.
