Then Jesus said to them, All of you will be made to stumble because of Me this night, for it is written: I will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered. But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee.
Peter answered and said to Him, 'Even if all are made to stumble because of You, I will never be made to stumble.'
Jesus said to him, Assuredly, I say to you that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.
Peter said to Him, Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!
I often relate with the Peter we see in moments such as these throughout scripture.
Strong in tongue, weak in faith.
This is a part of a series of daily reflections on the season of Lent.
