(Video) Lessons from St. Peter: The best thing we can do for a friend

Fr. Peter John Cameron, OP - published on 09/01/23

Jesus predicts his Passion, and Peter rebukes Jesus

Jesus predicts his Passion, and Peter rebukes Jesus: God forbid, Lord! No such thing shall ever happen to you. Jesus replies: Get behind me, Satan! 

But why? Peter was just trying to protect his friend.

What is the best thing we can do for our friend? Possibly … jumping out of an airplane?
