We all make mistakes. And if there's anyone who knows what it’s like to make whopper of a mistake, it’s Saint Peter, a man who loved and served Jesus faithfully yet still denounced him at a crucial moment.
The Gospel tells us this wasn’t because of a heartfelt defiance or loss of faith on Peter’s part. It's because he was so scared by all the drama going on around him that for a minute he forgot to trust Jesus. Still Jesus not only forgave Peter for his cowardice, he chose him to be the rock and foundation, the first pope of His Church! It's important to note that Peter accepted Jesus’ forgiveness and mercy and never looked back.
So you see, Saint Peter's story is a mighty encouraging one to those suffering through the emotions and consequences of their mistakes. Give someone you care about our Saint Peter Prayer Pillowcase as a comforting reminder to pray for the intercession of this saint who understands what it feels like to make a BIG mistake. This is a sweet gift for kids too, with a heartfelt prayer to nurture their fortitude to love and trust God at all times, to be quick to ask for His guidance when challenges get scary, and to trust in God’s mercy. Like Saint Peter did!
