Pope Francis reflected on the Gospel account of Saint Peter's recognition of Jesus as the Lord,

“If the Lord finds in our hearts a faith – I won’t say perfect, but sincere, genuine, then he will see in us, too, the living rocks on which he builds his community,” Pope Francis said. “For this community, the foundation stone is Christ, the unique cornerstone.”

“For his part, Peter is the rock, as the visible foundation of the unity of the Church; but every baptized person is called to offer to Jesus his or her own faith, poor but sincere, so that He can continue to build His Church, today, in every part of the world.” from Catholic News Agency 8/24/2014

I thank God for giving Francis I to his Church.

Me too!

Beautiful
