Today is not only the Feast of the Confession of Saint Peter, but also the first day of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. This week falls each January between two holy days: The Confession of Saint Peter and the Conversion of Saint Paul.
Jesus builds his church on the confession of a man with a sketchy record when it comes to firm faith.
Yes, we’re still in Advent. But January is coming – and with it always comes a chance to begin again.
The feast of St. Peter’s confession is a great time to mix up some tasty rocks with the kids.
