The kind of courage and uncompromising obedience that Peter and team display today is a cardinal trait that should define the Church and her every member. However, it hasn’t always been the case with us Christians in many places, unfortunately. Often, we find an unfortunate collusion between human authorities and the Church personnel that the Gospel falls through the gap. Adopting the famous words of Carl von Clausewitz who said “war is continuation of politics by other means,” Valson Thampu, an academician, has observed that “Church administration is doing politics by other means.” Of course, we have honorable exceptions in individuals and several local churches. However, what has become an exception today was the norm for Peter and his early Church. And that is the norm we need to re-discover and live up to. It calls for an absolute fidelity to the one coming from above.
