You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church; the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.

Today’s Readings drew my thoughts back to a talk presented by Archbishop Fulton Sheen many years ago.  EWTN was running a program featuring the talks of Archbishop Fulton Sheen and this particular talk regarding Peter as the Vicar of Christ  really caught my interest in the wisdom with which he spoke about this topic.  So my post my be short this morning but please listen to this YouTube video of Archbishop Sheen’s talk regarding Peter the Vicar of Christ.  This is about a 30 minute talk but well worth listening to; I hope you find it as inspirational as I did.

Peter, The Vicar of Christ by Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Do something great for our Lord today – celebrate the day that God has given you.  Invite some friends over for fried chicken and party potatoes and maybe a banana split.  Enjoy their company and thank God for the gift they are in your life.

God’s will, not mine, be done.

Be not afraid; just have faith.

Jesus, I trust in You.

He must increase; I must decrease.

Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.

But you man of God chose righteousness, devotion, faith, love, patience and gentleness.  Compete well for the faith.
