Peter wasn’t able to hear Jesus talking about himself as a broken, failed and rejected Messiah. Yet it was to this end that Jesus trusted God to take his apparent failure and change the world through the cross.
We all have a lot to learn. This is why the broken, the imperfect, the rejected flocked to him and in his presence they became alive. Whole again. We too can accept our own failings because we can approach the One who can make us whole in the
Eucharist and ask for the grace to walk with others in their failings and imperfections.
