Feast of St. Peter's Chair
Today we celebrate Peter and his successors. The entrance antiphon for the Mass is from Luke 22:32: “The Lord said to Simon Peter: ‘I have prayed that your faith may not fail; and you in your turn must strengthen your brothers.”Lord, you have prayed for me, too. Increase my faith! You also continue to ask me, as you did Peter and your close friends, “Who do you say that I am?” “Who am I for you, Helen?” Lord, you are my spouse, my savior, my God, my friend, lover, companion, model and the source of my being. Your Heart is always open for me. You are Love! You call me to come to your Heart and there find all that I need. You are my Good Shepherd and lead me to restful waters.
