Call me Peter
Right now I'm thinking about Peter. St. Peter. Simon Peter. The guy who loved our Lord, but when the time came followed but when confronted denied knowing our Lord ( see Luke 22). Oh, how many times have I downplayed my Christianity? Distanced myself from appearing to know and love the Lord? Like Peter at the time, I have a healthy sense of self preservation. I do run in crowds that can be hostile to the Christian message or aspects thereof. I do think I cam getting better about excusing myself from the room when confronted with anti-Christian, anti-Catholic (not that I am one, but some days I might as well be), or anti-religious sentiments.
