Jesus grasps the hand of frightened St. Peter who is overwhelmed by the waves and the wind. A net full of fish at the right recalls the the post-Resurrection account of Peter's encounter with the risen Lord (John 21) when Jesus asks him three times "Peter, do you love me?" The rooster on the pillar at the left calls to mind Peter's denial of Christ on three occasions. Peter now has the opportunity to reverse his denial by the profession his love for and belief in the the Risen Christ.

Peter, Do You Love Me? (Pierre, m'aimes-tu?)
This icon image combines two different encounters between Jesus and St. Peter. After Jesus has commanded Peter to come to him upon the water (Matthew 14:29), he grasps the hand of frightened Peter who is overwhelmed by the wind and the waves. The net full of fish calls to mind the post-Resurrection account of Peter jumping into the water to run toward shore when John recognizes Jesus preparing a meal for them on a charcoal fire (John 21:6-16). In this scene, Jesus asks Peter three times "Do you love me?" Peter affirms his love for the Lord three times in contrast to his three denials of Christ predicted in Matthew 26:34. A rooster is perched on a pillar at the left of the scene reminding us of Peter's denial of Christ, which has now become an affirmation of faith in the Risen Jesus.
