Who Do You Say That I Am? The Christian life is one that always passes through and finds meaning in the cross of Christ. Each day we encounter numerous challenges and crosses to bear with our jobs, home lives, and interactions with other people. Suffering is undoubtedly part of our human experience. When we experience this suffering in daily trials, we must remember the confession that Simon Peter makes to Jesus in the Gospel today: You are the Christ. Every thought, word, and action that we take should proclaim this truth. Jesus is the Christ. We are called to show Christ to each person we encounter and to be Christ for those who might not encounter Him in the Church or in their daily experiences. Who do you say that Christ is? What crosses are you bearing right now? Do you remember that Jesus Christ bore the ultimate cross and will help you carry your crosses in life? Keep persevering in patience and charity, working out your salvation with fear and trembling and showing your faith through your good works. (cf. Philippians 2:12, James 2:18).
