One day He said, |Whom do men say that I am?| He wanted them to confess Him. But one said, |They say thou art Elias,| and another |that thou art Jeremiah;| and another |Thou art St. John the Baptist.| But He asked, |Whom do you say that I am?| -- turning to His disciples. And Peter answers, |Thou art the Son of the living God.| Then our Lord exclaimed, |Blessed art thou, Simon Barjonas.| Yes, He blessed him right there because he confessed Him to be the Son of God. He was hungry to get some one to confess him. Let everyone take his stand on the side of the Lord.
