“Blessed Are You”
Bless us with the blessing that is ours, O God, when we gain true insight into who Jesus is, insight that is true because it comes from you; make us open to such truth and make us willing to embrace and to express such truth.
Help us to stand on and to live out of our trust in who Jesus is that we might be great contributors to the faithful witness of your Church in the world.
“Simon Peter answered, ‘You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.’ And Jesus answered him, ‘Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.’” (Matthew 16:16-18)
