Jesus called him “the rock” but he didn’t act much like a rock in the 22nd chapter of the gospel of Luke. A Catholic preacher looked at this chapter and made the comment that people study the rise and fall of things. This is the fall and rise. As often is the case, God reverses normal things. When one looks at Peter or any of the other apostles, it is comforting to realize that if God could build his church with such as these, there is room for all of us.
