I took this picture from a website that the owner was kind enough to make me aware of and I chose this picture of Saint Peter receiving the keys to illustrate this post for a couple of reasons. My middle name is Peter and I share many of his faults. I can be incredibly thickheaded and short-tempered, and have denied God more than three times.
So why receiving the keys? We all receive a set of keys, seven of them in fact. No, I am not referring to the keys to the kingdom that were given Saint Peter, but the seven sacraments. They are available to all of us and help us to grow closer to God
