One way and another, the Collect for today seems particularly apt...
who inspired your apostle Saint Peter
to confess Jesus as Christ and Son of the living God:
Build up your Church upon this rock,
that in unity and peace it may proclaim one truth
and follow one Lord, your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
As a Myers Briggs "F", who often threatens to be overwhelmed by her feelings, I've always been very fond of St Peter. If ever there was a saint whose heart ruled his head, it must surely be he. Actually, I suspect he was probably ENFP,- with sudden wonderful bursts of intuition which shine through the gospels
"You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
"To whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life!"
He was also, of course, the fool who sometimes rushed in where angels feared to tread, a mercurial character whose up times were the height of exaltation
"It's good, Lord, to be here" but whose downs were very much like drowning.
A long long time ago, when I first made my confession to a priest (in a wonderful church in South London which formed my faith in so many ways) I was given the commissioning of Peter from John 21 to read as my penance. Lo and behold, it kept cropping up on every similar occasion from then on until I finally found that same passage open on the prie dieux in the chapel at my first (abortive) selection conference.
Today, of course, we read it again...and I found myself overwhelmed once again,- this time with gratitude that as God used this incredibly human man, whose faults and virtues are non negotiably there whenever we read the gospels, he is also willing to use us,- use me, maelstrom of feelings and all!
