“Jesus said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’
Simon Peter said in reply, ‘You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.’ ” — Matthew 16:15-16
Answering this question in the same way that Peter did has motivated Christians for millennia. Padre Julio, Sister Margaret Mary and Sister Lillian have impacted countless lives, and will for generations to come, out of a clear understanding who Jesus truly is.
Lord, please protect missionaries and their work. May their work for those with material poverty thrive and may it feed our spiritual poverty as well.
