For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, in contemplating today's reading below, it is clear that Jesus not only knew who He was but Peter knew who He was as well. Help me to know myself in such a way too so that I can easily grasp the mission or purpose that You created me to be. I believe there is so much that I can do with my Life but there are times when I find myself in a state of question. I know that with Your assistance, absolutely anything is possible. Father help me to know myself as well as Your Son Jesus knew Himself, and to maintain a positive attitude while increasing my confidence so that I can clearly feel You and hear You when You speak to my heart, knowing that You are working through me to fulfill Your Divine Purpose.
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
13 Now 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."
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
