Stumbling and Rising

Stumbling and Rising


Peter stumbled. Oh, did Peter stumble. Just hours after he boasted he would never deny Jesus, he did so three times. But Peter also believed in Jesus’ forgiveness and love. Small wonder it was on this humble fisherman that the Church was built.


St. Peter,
it seems like I am always
making promises to God,
and then falling short.
Help me to start each day anew
with a contrite, servant’s heart
and a steadfast spirit.


Ask God to forgive you for yesterday’s sins—and forgive yourself as well.
