That Weekly Liturgy Lesson - 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time (Cycle A) Can Help Kids to Understand the Gospel.
Use That Weekly Liturgy Lesson - 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time (Cycle A) to help teach children that Jesus named Peter as the first leader of the Church. The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Matthew 16:13-20 - Peter proclaims that Jesus is the Christ.
Today's Gospel features Peter's proclamation that Jesus is the Christ and his reception of the keys to Heaven from the Lord. The apostle is called the "rock" upon whom Jesus built His Church. The term rock doesn't mean a boulder, but rather it stands for Peter's great faith in his recognition of Jesus as the Messiah (Christ), the Son of the living God (CCC: 424). St. Peter built the Church by sharing the Gospel, the good news of salvation, God's Word, and Christ's teachings. He led the Apostles, and together they baptized people into the Church and forgave the sins of those who were repentant. St. Peter was the first pope.
