St. Charles Lwanga and Companions,
Pray for us
In this meeting of Jesus and Peter, unspoken is the memory of Peter’s three denials of Jesus in the early hours of Good Friday. But rather than rebuke Peter for his betrayal, Jesus offers Peter the chance to start again, to make amends, to repair the fracture in their relationship not for Jesus’ sake, but for Peter’s. It is a moment of grace. Can we extend the same grace to someone as Jesus does to Peter? Is there a relationship in our life that needs repair?
