This story appears in three gospels, so made an impression!
However let's look at the practicalities of the situation.
What does the story really say even if it has got a bit confused?
Peter had, seemingly, invited his friends to a meal.
but arranging it had got the hostess into anxious fever,
about Peter's valued leader coming to her house!
When Jesus actually arrives he takes her hand
and it calms her down.
As it would.
