Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time ~ August 26

Some who heard Jesus’ teaching returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. The demands of being a follower of Christ were too much for them. When you are tired and being a disciple of Jesus feels too hard, how will you respond to the question Jesus asks in today’s gospel, “Do you also want to leave?” Pray for the grace to respond like Peter did, “Lord, to who shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We are convinced that you are the holy one of God.”
