Who Am I?
Jesus asks his disciples the question: "Who do people say that I am?" They tell him. Then he asks: 'But you, who do you say I am?
Jesus is still asking this question of each of us. And, I think, Jesus also wants us to ask ourselves, "Who am I?" Why am I here? What am I called to be? I am sure that Jesus asked himself these same questions after his baptism by John. Then he went off to the desert and spent forty days pondering these same questions or similar ones. Only then did he come back and begin to call others and to talk to them about the reign of God. Let us take time this week end to ponder anew these same questions.
