MARK 8:27-35

27 AND JESUS WENT OUT, AND HIS DISCIPLES, INTO THE TOWNS OF CAESAREA PHILIPPI. AND IN THE WAY, HE ASKED HIS DISCIPLES, SAYING TO THEM: WHOM DO MEN SAY THAT I AM?

28 WHO ANSWERED HIM, SAYING: JOHN THE BAPTIST; BUT SOME ELIAS, AND OTHERS AS ONE OF THE PROPHETS.

29 THEN HE SAITH TO THEM: BUT WHOM DO YOU SAY THAT I AM? PETER ANSWERING SAID TO HIM: THOU ART THE CHRIST.

30 AND HE STRICTLY CHARGED THEM THAT THEY SHOULD NOT TELL ANY MAN OF HIM.

31 AND HE BEGAN TO TEACH THEM, THAT THE SON OF MAN MUST SUFFER MANY THINGS, AND BE REJECTED BY THE ANCIENTS AND BY THE HIGH PRIESTS, AND THE SCRIBES, AND BE KILLED: AND AFTER THREE DAYS RISE AGAIN.

32 AND HE SPOKE THE WORD OPENLY. AND PETER TAKING HIM, BEGAN TO REBUKE HIM.

33 WHO TURNING ABOUT AND SEEING HIS DISCIPLES, THREATENED PETER, SAYING: GO BEHIND ME, SATAN, BECAUSE THOU SAVOREST NOT THE THINGS THAT ARE OF GOD, BUT THAT ARE OF MEN.

34 AND CALLING THE MULTITUDE TOGETHER WITH HIS DISCIPLES, HE SAID TO THEM: IF ANY MAN WILL FOLLOW ME, LET HIM DENY HIMSELF, AND TAKE UP HIS CROSS, AND FOLLOW ME.

35 FOR WHOSOEVER WILL SAVE HIS LIFE, SHALL LOSE IT: AND WHOSOEVER SHALL LOSE HIS LIFE FOR MY SAKE AND THE GOSPEL, SHALL SAVE IT.

LISTEN TO THE GOSPEL AND HOMILY
