Homily: 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

After the disciples have spent so much time with Jesus watching him heal and teach and forgive it seems that Jesus feels it is time to give his disciples a ‘midterm test.’ He wants to see what they have learned after spending so much time watching Jesus minister to others.  But before he asks them the one and only question he has them hike 25 miles to the region of Caesarea Philippi.

Why the long hike?  What is the one question he asks them….and asks us?  And how would you answer?
