Vocation Corner

In our Gospel today, St. Peter makes his beautiful profession of faith in Jesus’ true identity.  It is through that profession that Jesus then proclaims St. Peter as the “rock” on which the Church will be built.  He makes St. Peter the first pope!  All of this starts with the simple question that Jesus asks them: “But who do you say that I am?”  It is a piercing question, and it is one that we should imagine Jesus asking each one of us.  How would you answer that question?  Who is Jesus in your life?  Jesus does not want to simply be one part of your life amongst many others.  He wants to be the center of your life!  He wants to be higher than everything else and a part of everything else.  It is not until you are willing to proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord of your life that you will be able to discern your vocation well.  Brothers and sisters, we are all here to give our lives for the glory of Jesus Christ.  Do not be afraid to make Him the center of your life and subordinate everything else to Him.  In doing so, you will be professing your faith in Him and opening yourself to Him so that He can do great things in your life, just as He did in the life of St. Peter.
