Gospel text
Mt 16:13-20
Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi and he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" They replied, "Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets."
Gospel's Commentary
Today we see what happened centuries ago is the same as in our times: everyone gives his opinion about Jesus Christ, although many have no idea. More or less everyone dares to say something about Jesus. How much nonsense we are able to say when faith is not cultivated or when we drift apart from the Church! -"Saying just empty words" or "say what others say" is good for nothing. That’s why Jesus asks us, in particular: «But you, who do you say I am?»
