Imagine being in Peter’s shoes and the passionate loyalty of a child for their parent. Peter, in disbelief, that he could loose his beloved friend and leader, speaks up and is strongly put into his place as not knowing anything. While Jesus is trying to share his salvific role, it is hard to hear. In your own life be conscious of how you choose to disseminate information to those “beneath you” with love. In responding to situations that shock you, let not your ego get in the way with the words you may choose. In all situations with those in less power than you, choose to build them up so as to give your own life away in a small manner to lift up another.
