To be a bridge-builder or to be the in-between person is never an easy task because of the pressure and demands of both parties. In many ways, we the church are also called to be bridge-builders between God and the world, and also between peoples. The Gospel presents Peter proclaiming Jesus as the Son of the living God, as indeed he is. As the Son of God, Jesus came to bring men back to God but it certainly was not an easy task. He had to lay down his life in order to fulfill his mission. The mission that is entrusted to us, the church, is also to bring people back to God by being bridge-builders. It was no easy task for Jesus, neither will it be for us.
