On this weeks programme we are joined by Maria Hunt from the Knock Shrine office who tells us about the up coming events on the Knock calendar as well as reminding people about the resources and supports at Knock Shrine for families and individuals in their faith journey including the various youth ministry and also prayer guides available to all. 
Obviously the main highlights for the Shrine this summer will be the re-dedication  of the basilica which will be lead by Cardinal Sean O'Malley from Boston on the 16th July and the annual Knock Novena in August 2016.

Gospel - Luke 9:18-24 - Who do you say that I am?
 


Once when Jesus was praying alone, with only the disciples near him, he asked them, ‘Who do the crowds say that I am?’ They answered, ‘John the Baptist; but others, Elijah; and still others, that one of the ancient prophets has arisen.’ He said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’ Peter answered, ‘The Messiah of God.’

He sternly ordered and commanded them not to tell anyone, saying, ‘The Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.’

Then he said to them all, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will save it.
