Weekend Reflections for 8/22/14
Who am I?
By Fr. Ralph Huse, S.J.
"Jesus asked His disciples, 'Who do people say that the Son of Man is?' He said to them, 'But who do you say that I am?' Simon Peter said in reply, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.'"
Each of us is on a life-long journey of self-discovery. We come to a sense of who we are primarily through our relationships. We are daughter or son, brother or sister, grandchild, niece or nephew, neighbor, classmate, friend. Eventually most of us choose to be wife or husband, father or mother. And in all of these different relationships I remain the unique Me. We want and need to be be known by our loved ones. Jesus wants His friends to know who He is, wants each of us to know Him as He reveals Himself in all of our relationships. Ask Him for that grace and then we will know who we truly are - God's beloved.
