St. Peter, Imitator of Christ

Feast Of Saints Peter and Paul 2019
This ancient feast emphasizes the chief of the Apostles and the Church reserves its celebration for St. Paul until tomorrow.  Christ chose St. Peter to be a perfect imitation of Himself and gave him tremendous powers with which to strengthen the Church in its first years.  Our Lord loved St. Peter for his faith, his fidelity to grace, his humble conversion, his love and his loyalty.  In the Gospel for today Christ tells us that upon this rock (Peter) He will build His Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  For this reason, the faithful on earth join with the Church Triuphant and Suffering to rejoice on this day.
