I realize that often I have no “filter.” That is to say, whatever is in my head comes out of my mouth bypassing any “SLOW” signs it may encounter on the way. This can get me into trouble and probably why St. Peter has always been one of my favorites. Here was a man who so loved Jesus that he would do anything for him and yet on several instances he also had no filter and said things he greatly regretted. First, he was the “rock” for Christ to build his church, then he had little faith, and once Jesus called him a “Satan.” The humanity he possessed is inspiring to me. This humble fisherman, who also made so many mistakes, became one of the greatest saints! This gives me hope that even when a thought goes non-stop from my brain to my vocal chords, I still have a chance at getting to heaven.
