DEACON GEORGE’S HOMILY FOR 21ST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Jesus asked two questions: “Who do people say I am?” and, “who do you say I am”. Peter gave an answer to the second question, a very confident answer, “You are the Christ”. Now today! Jesus is asking us the very same question “Who do you say I am”. However, Jesus will not ask us this question directly, he has his own ways of doing it. Perhaps! One day, a neighbour or stranger might come up to us, and in conversation, ask, “this Jesus, you worship, who is he?”. So! What is our answer? Can we, like Peter, give a confident answer? Or will we be lost for words….
