In the Name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Ghost.
Just a few minutes ago we sang the words, “’Tis good, Lord, to be here.” We have borrowed those words from St. Peter, who often gets a lot of grief for that statement and his desire to build three tabernacles for Jesus, Moses, and Elijah. He is criticized as having a theology of glory, a desire to have the best life now, in this world. But is Peter’s offer really that bad? His desire comes from faith, a longing to be with the Lord in His glory, to leave behind this sin-marred world. He has seen the Lord as He truly is: great and glorious, all-victorious. What more could this world have to offer?
