November 21, 2021 This conversation between Jesus and Peter in today’s gospel reading is really remarkable. Remember that not so long ago, Peter was the disciple who let Jesus down in a big way. Peter was the friend who, in the moment when that friendship was most tested, lost courage and betrayed Jesus three times. Ever since that moment, Peter has had to walk through daily life, carrying the invisible and heavy weight of shame and guilt; shame that leads him to believe he will never be forgiven, and guilt that makes him wish so intensely that he could go back and do that moment over again.
