Today we welcomed back Father Martin and Jan from their holiday. Father Martin presided at the Parish Mass and Father Mervyn preached and concelebrated. Father Mervyn pointed out that last week Jesus had praised Peter for his profession of faith whilst in today’s reading he castigates Peter suggesting he is acting as a tempter. Jesus points out that if we want to follow him we have to take up our cross. Being a Christian is not an easy or soft option.
