FEAST OF THE CHAIR OF PETER THE APOSTLE
The chair has the floor

For a chair to get its own feast day, it’s got to be a pretty special chair. Today’s is just that, because Saint Peter himself, the very first pope, sat upon it. The relic in St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City is a wooden throne, which Pope Benedict XVI described as a “symbol of the special mission of Peter and his successors to tend Christ’s flock, keeping it united in faith and in charity." Ponder that our church’s leaders stand in a line going all the way back to the apostles, and pray for each one who holds this esteemed position.

TODAY'S READINGS: 1 Peter 5:1-4; Matthew 16:13-19 (535). “Upon this rock I will build my church.”

ALWAYS BE READY

A mother was explaining, to her little girl, the death of her father. The mother said: “God has sent for your father and will send for us, but I do not know just when.” Finally, the little girl said: “If we do not know just when God is going to send for us, do you not think we had better pack up and get ready to go? God might send when we are not ready.”
