“And I tell you,  you are Peter,  and on this rock I will build my Church and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16 : 18)

Today we celebrate the twin founders of the Church in Rome. Both St. Paul and St. Peter proved that they were committed and faithful disciples by laying down their lives for Jesus and His Gospel.  St. Paul was beheaded and St. Peter was crucified upside down.
