The Chair of St. Peter: Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Listen to the homily here.


The chair of St. Peter
·      Matthew 16:13-19
o   “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
o   “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah.  For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father.”
o   “And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church…”
·      Peter was a sinner
o   “But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me; for you are not on the side of God, but of men.”
o   Almost drowned on the lake
o   Denied Jesus
The chair of St. Peter…God does not choose the qualified…he qualifies the chosen!
·      St. Peter

·      And YOU
