Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I welcome priests and people from the many nations who are here in Melbourne to offer this Mss for all of those who have come here, for all who now make Australia home, enriched by the gifts and traditions of their own countries and by the common endeavour which we share.

Today Jesus speaks to his disciples asking them who people say he is. Peter’s affirmation, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God”, is the watchword of our whole Catholic life.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

“You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Today’s Gospel focuses us once again on who is Christ for our life. The whole of our faith is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It was Peter’s whole reason for existence, sustaining him in his weakness, drawing him out to be an articulate proclaimer and leader of the faith. Later at the Council of Jerusalem the commission that Jesus gave to Peter was accepted by all of the disciples.
