In today’s Gospel, Mark offers a familiar and powerful narrative for our meditation. Jesus and his disciples have been working hard, and there is a lot of buzz around the Judean countryside. So in a moment of respite, Jesus asks his followers: Who do people say that I am? They repeat what people are saying: Elijah, one of the prophets, or even John the Baptist. But then Jesus asks them directly: Who do you say I am? And once again it is the burly Peter who steps forward with profound faith: You are the Christ, the Messiah, the Savior, the fulfillment of the covenant of our Father.

SAVANNAH--Place a victim of genocide and his or her perpetrator in a room together, side by side, and what do you think will happen?


In Rwanda, the answer to that question is not one you might expect. 


Just take a look at the men and women featured in the documentary “Forgiveness: The Secret of Peace,” who, with the influence of Father Ubald Rugirangoga, a genocide survivor himself and a priest in the Diocese of Cyangugu in southeastern Rwanda, have been able to make amends.

SAVANNAH--"Faith takes discipline,“ said Kevin Iocovozzi. "Just like driving, there is a lot of information coming at you and you have learn to settle in and pay attention to what is important."


A 1979 graduate of Benedictine Military School in Savannah, Iocovozzi began racing cars about 10 years ago. He says, “I think every young boy thinks about going fast. Out here we go fast and are safe.” Drivers must attend and pass racing school before they can get a license to race.
