Simon Peter

Simon Peter

Georges Chevrot

"Duc in altum! Simon, go out even further than you went during the night of vain effort. To advance in virtue we must not be afraid to see and to wish 'big!' By aiming simply at ordinary decency, we will never pass mediocrity.  Let us always aim higher."

 

In a series of short meditations based on the Gospel encounters between Jesus and Peter, the author encourages us, like Peter, to begin and begin again as we struggle for sanctity in our ordinary lives.  We recognize ourselves in this ardent, impulsive disciple, who is now bold, then timid, but always loving, even in his weakness.
