Gospel text (Mk 8:27-33): Jesus (...) asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” They said in reply, “John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others one of the prophets.” Jesus and his disciples set out for the villages of Caesarea Philippi. Along the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” They said in reply, “John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others one of the prophets.” And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter said to him in reply, “You are the Messiah.” Then he warned them not to tell anyone about him.

He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer greatly and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and rise after three days. He spoke this openly. Then Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. At this he turned around and, looking at his disciples, rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan. You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.”

Today it is as if we attended in person a Show in the TV Studios. What do the people say about Jesus? There are all sorts of opinions, sometimes they are very odd. What is true is that today many talk about Jesus, but also many do carve a Jesus according to their whim.

-Pray, and walk along with Jesus to get to know the truth, until you can say, like Peter, “You are the Christ”.
