The disciple Peter was called by Jesus the ‘rock’ upon which he built his Church. He was also the disciple who denied Jesus three times in his hour of greatest need. He was saint, and he was sinner. He stands for all of us.
To what extent do we try to see people as strictly saint or sinner, rather than as a combination of both? Can we recognize that there is darkness and there is light in all of us? Can we recognize that there is both in every person with whom we interact?
