Theme: God is creating a church, built on rock.

Breaking Open the Word
Suggested text for faith sharing: Today’s Gospel

Step One: Listen to the Word
When you hear the Gospel proclaimed today, what words or phrases really strike you? What lingers in your memory from this reading?

Step Two: Look into Your Life

Question for Children: What are three things you know about Jesus?

Question for Youth: Today’s Gospel is about identity – the revealing of Jesus’ true self. How difficult is it to you to reveal your true self? What holds you back from being who God created you to be?

Question for Adults: If Jesus turned and asked you the same question, who would you say he is? How would you describe Jesus to someone who did not know him?
