He added that the faithful is spiritually renewed in a daily basis through the faith in the Lord Jesus. Most importantly, we need to remain faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ and confess his divinity as St. Peter did when he confessed that He is the son of the living God. He thus became a disciple of Christ Who wants us to remain with Him in times of joy as well as times of distress; thus, our sole goal will be the salvation of our souls.
