Jane Knuth shares her reflection on today’s retreat:
The Gospels tell us a few things about Peter. He was an every day laborer—a fisherman. He was a family man. He didn’t always understand Jesus. He was not of the priestly class.
“Upon this rock I will build my church.”
Christ built a church on the foundation of a married worker and the holiness of a fallible person. What a strangely wondrous place to put an altar.
Jane Knuth is a longtime volunteer in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Kalamazoo, Michigan. In 2011, Jane's first book, Thrift Store Saints, was awarded first place from the Catholic Press Association for Popular Presentation of the Catholic Faith.
