Church Father Quote of the Day

Peter denied Him a first time but did not shed a tear, because the Lord’s gaze did not meet his; he denied Him a second time and did not shed a tear, because the Lord’s gaze had not yet come upon him; he denied Him a third time, Christ’s gaze fell upon him, and he cried bitterly. Gaze upon us, Lord Jesus, so that we may learn to cry for our sins.

Ambrose
Commentary on the Gospel of St. Luke, 10, 88-90
