Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter the Apostle
Commentary: Matthew 16:13-19
And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
Jesus, when the storms of life are raging, may I always remember to take refuge in the Church that you founded. Help me to remember that you not only started the Church but you will never abandon us and that efficacy of the strength you offer in your sacraments is only dependent on my reliance on them. May I teach my children through my example to pray for the Church and her leaders.
