St. Peter, Model Of Priests

1st Friday July 2017 – Feast Of Sts. Cyril & Methodius

Sts. Cyril and Methodius were blood brothers who were the missionaries that converted many of the people of central Europe.  Their Mass Alleluia mentions Melchisedech who is a mysterious person from the Old Testament that prefigures Our Lord’s priesthood.  St. Peter typifies everything a priest is because he followed the example of Christ the High Priest so well.  Often we recall St. Peter’s shortcomings but do not emphasize those qualities so essential to a priest and summed up by his great love and generosity.
