GOD INVITES US, COME
I. THE READINGS
The help of God comes, and God declares the victim or the suffering one, innocent (First Reading). T
his is true in the person of Jesus. The Gospel reveals the identity of Jesus: the Messiah who will, after the profession of Peter, undergo suffering. Jesus faith in God is also manifested in his works. No wonder he accepts suffering voluntarily and offers himself like a sacrifice.
Thus we as followers of Jesus have to live out our faith in Him. This must be manifested in our works of making others live (Second Reading).
