The sense of Zech 12:10 "only" is an expression of one of a kind. Here is another use as regards Abraham and Isaac. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

This is a very weak argument for the perpetual virginity of Mary. This verse uses a simile to say that Israel's mourning for their God-Messiah will be like that of parents who have lost their only child. It makes no claim whatsoever about Mary.

First of all, St. Peter repented or turned back from his denial, according to the prophecy of Christ: Luke 22:32 (DRB[]) And the Lord said: Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you [all] as wheat: 32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and thou, being once converted, confirm thy brethren. 33 Who said to him: ...
