St. Peter put his life on the line, when he struck the High Priest’s servant, with his Sword

For all of us who remember that all the Apostles ran away after Jesus stopped St. Peter from causing any more violence with his sword. Most don’t understand that by our Lord stopping St. Peter from continuing the resistance that his actions caused a temporary shock, and confusion among Peter and the Apostles. As a result, what else could they do but run away. So, it’s not so surprising that St. Peter later denied he knew the Lord because of the mental state of confusion and rejection that his state of mine was in. 

Most have forgotten how he was willing to die and fight for the Lord at the time they came to arrest him, but, again, that’s all you hear from the pulpit, how he denied him three times. I ask, what the hell would you have done in his place? I say this because, humans have a tendency to always pick out one’s weakness, they do this so they can justify “THEIR” weaknesses and faults. Satan uses his same “Trick or Treat,” actions on every generation and every generation of fools fall for it, that is except those who become Saints. It’s no wonder that our Lord tells us, that in the last days, “unless those days be shortened not even the elect will be saved.” May the Lord have mercy on us all.
