- NOVENA TO SAINT PETER
St. Peter was a Jewish fisherman in Bethsaida. St. Peter's original name was Simon, Peter being a name given to him by Jesus. At the time of Jesus' public life, Peter was a grown man. This would place his birth sometime around the end of the 1st century B.C. Of his early life, we know little except that he came from the village of Bethsaida in Galilee and that his father was a fisherman. Peter is always listed first among the twelve Apostles in the Bible. St. Peter is traditionally considered to be the head of Jesus’ twelve Apostles and the first bishop of Rome. From the moment Peter met Jesus, he knew he was the ‘Messiah’(saviour). Peter accompanied Jesus everywhere. Simon Peter was the disciple who asked the most questions. When he did not understand what Jesus was doing or what He was teaching, he was not afraid to ask for clarification.
St. Peter was the only disciple to walk on water, like Jesus did. Jesus was walking on the water to the boat where several of the disciples were, in a storm. Peter asked Christ to tell him to come to Him, which Jesus did. Peter stepped out of the boat and began to walk on the water to Jesus. He was distracted by the wind and waves and began to sink, but Jesus reached out to him and told him not to be afraid. He died by being nailed to a cross in Rome. This type of death is called crucifixion. There is a legend that says that Peter asked to be crucified upside down, as he felt unworthy to die as Jesus did. Peter was buried in the nearest cemetery which was on top of Vatican Hill and St. Peter’s Basilica was later built on top of St. Peter’s tomb.
St. Peter is often represented holding the keys to heaven and hell, symbolising his duty as a leader. Often, he is pictured as gentle but firm and capable of great loyalty and love. The Holy Bible reports that Peter was unlearned in the sense that he was untrained and it is doubtful that he knew Greek. He apparently learned slowly and erred time and time again, but later, when he entrusted with responsibility, he demonstrated that he was mature and capable. Humility is dying to self; Humility is of the main characters of St. Peter which enabled him to die to his own ego and pride. He is a man of Hope too. When we have hope it is easier to be patient with everybody. St. Peter is a true model for all students seeking moral and intellectual attainments. May all the Peterians be rock-like as St. Peter was, in their convictions based on noble virtues, refined character and faith in God.
CMCs, the first indigenous religious congregation for women in the Syro Malabar Church, was founded as the Third Order of Carmelites Discalced on February 13th 1866 at Koonammavu, Kerala by Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara (1805-1871) with the cooperation of Fr. Leopold Beccaro OCD.
Fr. Chavara envisioned the spiritual renaissance and holistic wellbeing of the Indians through the initiation of the congregation. CMC is rooted in the Indian Culture, nourished by the heritage of St. Thomas Christians. Today CMC renders her faithful service for the people through various forums in four continents like Asia, Africa, America and Europe with much dedication. The ‘charisma’ of CMC can be summarised as the personal sanctification through the blending of contemplation and action as well as the redemptive uplift of the people principally of women and children.

purity of heart,
a right intention in all my works,
constancy in my resolutions,
resignation to the will of God
and perseverance in the grace of God even unto death;
that so, through your intercession
and your glorious merits,
I may be worthy to appear
before the heavenly Father
