Thought for the Day – 16 September –  Today’s Gospel: Mark 8:27–35

Thought for the Day – 16 September –  Today’s Gospel: Mark 8:27–35 – Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B

“But who do you say that I am?”

Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.”...Mark 8:29

These same questions are proposed to each of us today:  “Who is Jesus for the people of our time?” and more importantly:  “Who is Jesus for each of us?”, for me, for you,…? Who is Jesus for each one of us?

We are called to make Peter’s answer our own response, joyfully professing that Jesus is the Son of God, the Eternal Word of the Father, who became man to redeem mankind, pouring out the abundance of divine mercy upon it.

The world needs Christ more than ever:  His salvation, His merciful love.

Pope Francis – Angelus, 19 June 2016but who do YOU say that I am mark 8 29a 16 sept 2018


Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
