Contact 020-78345363 Sts Peter & Paul Veneration of the two great Apostles, Peter and Paul, has its roots in the very foundations of the Church. They are the solid rock on which the Church is built. They are at the origin of her faith and will forever remain her protectors and her guides. Tradition tells us that St. Peter suffered martyrdom under Nero, in A.D. 66 or 67. He was buried on the hill of the Vatican where recent excavations believe they have revealed his tomb on the very site of the basilica of St. Peter's. St. Paul, known by his Roman name Saul before his conversion, was beheaded on the via Ostia on the spot where now stands the basilica bearing his name. He is famous for his many missionary journeys around the Mediterranean and was brought to Rome because of his high distinction of being a Roman citizen. Do you know why St Peter is depicted with ‘Crossed Keys’ and St Paul with a ‘sword’? Checkout your Bible for some ideas - Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 6: 10-18. Also think about how these great Apostles were killed/martyred? From the outside, when you leave this Church today, look above the main doorway and see do you notice anything connecting this Church with today’s feast day and with the Universal Catholic Church!!!
