Peter's Contrition

In the last verse of Mark 14, after Peter denies Jesus, after the rooster crows, Peter remembered that Jesus had said this would happen.  "And when he thought about it, he wept."

You know what?  I don't think that night was the only time he thought about it and wept.  Even after Jesus forgave him, even after Jesus reminded him of his call to be an apostle, even after Pentecost, I bet there were still occasions when Peter "thought about it" and wept with shame and grief.
