Never an option

I was so struck this morning by this introductory comment to today’s Mass readings from Magnificat.  The gospel recounts the story of Peter asking Christ to depart from him because he is a sinful man.  Magnificat comments:

Peter relies on his limited expertise instead of upon the humble authority of Jesus Christ . . . even regarding fishing.  . . . When Peter’s sin of presumption fills him with shame, he begs Jesus to depart from him–a request that Christ will never honor.

What a Savior we have–One who will never depart from us, even if we beg Him. . .
