“You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church…” Jesus gave Simon a new name to symbolize his new role. Maybe, Peter thought that If Jesus could use him to build his church on, he could use anybody! Peter’s faith went up and down (much like you and me). But, peter changed after the resurrection and Pentecost. We can change, too. WE need to build the church as well.

  1. Pope Francis tells us that it is difficult to be a good Christian, for that we need to constantly ask God’s help.
    It is my experience that that is the work of the Holy Spirit. Before Pentecost the Apostles are timid and afraid, with the gift of the Spirit, they are transformed to brave and vocal persons who must spread the Good Nrews.
