PODCAST | Part One: Running With Peter

[ View Transcript ]

Are you eager to run to Jesus this Easter season?

In this podcast, the first in a three-part series on St. Peter and the Resurrected Christ, Fr. Peter Armenio reflects on the life of St. Peter and the circumstances surrounding his selection as the first Vicar of Christ. Leading up to the events of Good Friday, we encounter Peter in a moment of temptation as he denies his association with Christ. As the events unfold, Peter realizes his offense and runs to the Lord seeking his love and mercy.

Peter’s steadfast hope and trust in the Lord gives witness to the importance of placing Christ at the center of our lives. Fr. Peter encourages us to run to the presence of Christ in the tabernacle, setting apart time for prayer and contemplation, and placing our spiritual life as the high point of each day.

During the Easter season, we are pleased to share a special podcast series on St. Peter and the Resurrected Christ. The series will reflect on the repentance and radical love of St. Peter from his denial of Christ to his running to the empty tomb, and to his encounter with the glorious Jesus on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is a call for us this Easter to also run to Our Lord in all things, especially in our life of prayer and piety.

Recommended book to accompany the series: Simon Peter by Georges Chevrot
