Twenty Second Sunday in Ordinary Time – We must take up our cross and follow Jesus

Today’s Gospel continues the story that began in last week’s Gospel. Now that Peter and the other Apostles have acknowledged that Jesus is the Messiah, Jesus confides in them the outcome of his ministry: he must suffer and die in Jerusalem to be raised on the third day.

 

Jesus teaches all of the disciples about the difficult path of discipleship: to be Christ’s disciple is to follow in his way of the cross.

 

Jesus is like the suffering servant described by the prophet Isaiah those who would be Jesus’ disciples would be called to a similar life of service. Today each of us as Christians are called to sacrifice ourselves and to seek to serve others as Jesus did.
