|"Do you love me? Feed my sheep"|
But, did our Lord not call St. Peter “Satan” (see Mk 8:33; Mt 16:23), as the SSPX says above, and did Simon Peter not deny His Lord three times? Yes, indeed, this is true. However, both of these things took place before St. Peter became the Pope of the Catholic Church. St. Robert Bellarmine, the Doctor of the Papacy, pointed out:
When St. Peter denied Christ, he had not yet begun to be the Supreme Pontiff, for it is certain that Ecclesiastical rule was handed to him by Christ in the last chapter of John, since the Lord said to him after the resurrection: “Simon, son of John, feed my sheep.” Therefore, that denial of Peter cannot be numbered among errors of the Roman Pontiffs. Besides, I add that Peter denied Christ with words, but not truly in his heart: hence Peter did not throw off the confession of faith, nor faith itself, as we showed previously.

The apostate Jorge Mario Bergoglio has attacked St. Peter several times, spreading the same heretical and blasphemous mockery against St. Peter on different occasions.
Bergoglio mocks the Priesthood and the Papacy instituted by Jesus Christ
Bergoglio maliciously identifies Saint Peter, not as a repentant man, but as a stubborn sinner.
'St Peter committed one of the greatest sins, denying Christ, and yet they made him Pope. Think about that'-
☠ This is what is important: a theology of sin. So many times I think of St. Peter: he committed one of the worst sins denying Christ. And with this sin they made him Pope. We must think about fact often. (29 Jul. 13 -in the interview to justify the homosexual priest Battista Ricca)
Bergoglio opposes Saint Peter and accuses him of being the most sinful of the Apostles.
Bergoglio attacks Saint Peter while advocating for Judas the Traitor.
☠Jesus entrusted his sheep to Peter, the most sinful of the remaining eleven apostles, and invited him to shepherd the People of God with humility and love, despite his mistakes and sins.
☠ “Jesus, chose the most sinful from among the apostles. The others escaped but Peter denied him: ‘I don’t know him.’ And Jesus asked him, ‘Do you love me more than these?’ Jesus chose the worst sinner.”
While our Lord was being condemned to death, he feared, and denied Him. But by His resurrection Christ implanted love in his heart, and drove away fear. Peter denied, because he feared to die: but when our Lord was risen from the dead, and by His death destroyed death, what should he fear? He says to Him, Yea, Lord; you know that 1 love You. On this confession of his love, our Lord commends His sheep to him: He says to him, Feed My lambs. as if there were no way of Peter’s showing his love for Him, but by being a faithful shepherd, under the chief Shepherd.
