The Tears of St. Peter

Peter Sellars in the Rector’s Forum on Sunday, October 9, 2016:

“You’re not allowed to have a transformation until you’ve gone all the way. My Chinese sign is the Phoenix, and I thought… you just have to burn half-way. But actually, no, you don’t get to burn half-way and say ‘that’s enough, can I come back now?’ The resurrection only happens when you burn all the way down to ash. And then come back. Full, and new, and complete.”
