Peter: No Pope, or Pentecostalist, but Protestant!

In his Prophetic Discourse, Jesus commanded His Disciples: "When they [your enemies] shall…deliver you up — take no thought beforehand what you shall speak!….   But whatsoever shall be given you in that hour — that you must speak!   For it is not you that speak, but the Holy Ghost."3277   Thus Peter’s secretary Mark.

In what might be call the Liturgy of Peter’s Secretary Mark, one encounters the following.   Salute (Mark 1:16-17).   Scripture Reading (Mark 1:38-39).   Sermon (cf.
