Missionary Conference 2013. Bacolod. FLiQ Media at San Sebastian Cathedral.
Are you a rock or a stumbling block? Jesus called Peter the rock after Peter called him the Messiah. Yet after a few verses, Jesus called him a stumbling block when Peter refused to believe in Jesus’ passion. Do we set our minds on the divine? Or on material things / the physical? Do we speak the truth yet are afraid to face the consequences of that truth? Like suffering?
Understanding is a sign that God has chosen us to continue the mission. But with that understanding comes acceptance of whatever goes along with it: suffering, passion, etc. Are we ready to take that on and be “rock”?
