Peter's extreme reversals, from empassioned protestations of fidelity to Our Lord, to his denial of Jesus in the courtyard of Caiaphas, to his eventual martyrdom in Rome, should be a reminder and lesson to us on our humble condition and the need for total dependence on God's grace, if we are to avoid similar reversals in our moral life.
