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.
