SAINT PETER

The virtue of faith

Saint Peter examines Dante

Peter denied Jesus

***

Peter examines Dante in the virtue of faith. This is the same Peter who denied three times that he knew Jesus after the Romans took Jesus prisoner. Peter sinned, but he repented, and he became an effective spreader of Christianity, with the result that he knows a lot about faith and that he is now in Paradise. The story is told in Matthew, chapter 26.
