Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Peter, who had just made points with Jesus by providing the right answer when asked who he thought Jesus was, shows that there is still much he does not understand. He can accept that Jesus is the Messiah but not that He will be executed as a criminal. Jesus reacts strongly, knowing that if Peter is to be a leader in the community he must be prepared for what is to come.

      What about Jesus do you find it difficult to accept?

The Responsorial Psalm states: "My soul is thirsting for You, 0 Lord, My God!"

0 Jesus, our eyes could not stand to look upon You in Your Real Divine Glory, nor bear to see You in the splendor of Your Majesty, but You considered that and concealed Yourself in the Blessed Sacrament. By faith let us adore Him.
