Memorial of Saint Dominic, Priest (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Today’s Gospel we see Jesus plays on Peter's name which is the same word for "rock" in both Aramaic and Greek. To call someone a "rock" is one of the greatest of compliments in those days. The ancient rabbis had a saying that when God saw Abraham, he exclaimed: "I have discovered a rock to found the world upon". Through Abraham God recognized a nation for himself. Through faith Peter grasped who Jesus truly was. He was the first apostle to recognize Jesus as the Anointed One and the only begotten Son of God. The New Testament describes the church as a spiritual house or temple with each member joined together as living stones. Faith in Jesus makes us into rocks or spiritual stones. Jesus tests each of us personally today with the same question: Who do you say that I am?
Word of the Day...
Psalm 149:4 For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, Almighty King, thank you for coming to our world and serving us at great cost and showing us that we can reign with you. We look forward to the day every other knee will join mine as we bow before you as our Lord. Until that day, we pray that you will use us to bless those so often forgotten by our busy and glamour-intoxicated world. To our God be glory and praise for sending you, Jesus my Lord. In the holy name of Jesus we offer our praise. Amen.

13Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesare'a Philip'pi, he asked his disciples, "Who do men say that the Son of man is?" 14 And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, others say Eli'jah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." 15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" 16 Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." 17 And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." 20 Then he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ.
