The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power. — Psalm 98:(see 2)
Mass reading: Revelation 5:1-10 / Luke 19:41 or Acts 28:11-16,30-31 / Matthew 14:22-33
I’m constantly telling my husband that I have to get to Rome. Having worked for the Church for nearly three decades, I feel like I should see the “home office.” But it’s much more than that. Like the earliest Christians who made pilgrimages to the Eternal City, I want to walk where some of our greatest saints once walked.
Today, when we mark the dedication of the Basilicas of St. Peter and St. Paul, it would be easy to get caught up in the grandeur of the buildings. But we know this celebration isn’t about architecture or artwork. It’s about the example of faith these holy men left for us. Sts. Peter and Paul remind us that trust in Jesus is all that’s necessary, with or without a trip to Rome.
Prayer: Son of God, help me to have faith when I’m afraid.
