Peter’s Faith and the Passion Announcement


Luke 9:18-22


Jesus prayed.  Then He asked the disciples,

“Who do the people say that I am?”  The

Disciples answered John the Baptist or

Elijah or one of the old prophets.


Christ asked, “But who do you say that I am?”

Peter professed his faith that Christ was God.

Christ said the disciples should tell no one.

He was not eager to be crucified.


From the Navarre Bible notes we know that

Saint John Vianney wrote, “a person who

Loves pleasure, who seeks comfort, who flies from

Anything that might spell suffering, who

Is over-anxious, who complains, who blames

…a person like that is” not living right.
