Jesus Called To Peter

When Jesus was hanging on the cross, he looked out into the crowd and saw the future Saint Peter. He called out, "Peter. Peter. Come here."

Peter tried to reach Jesus, but the Roman soldiers around the foot of the cross pushed him back. He looked up, and Jesus repeated, "Peter. Come here."

So Peter tried again to reach the cross. This time the Roman soldiers knocked him down and kicked him a few times. Picking himself up, Peter heard Jesus calling to him again, so he dashed between two Roman soldiers and went right up to the foot of the cross, saying "Yes, Lord ... "

And Jesus said, "Peter ... I can see your house from here."
