Today we celebrate the Solemnity of Peter and Paul, Apostles. We know them as the patrons of Rome where they were both martyred around the same time. Both men had their differences, but they were central in establishing the faith early on. Eventually, through their efforts and the efforts of many other early martyrs, the Roman Empire would be won over despite much opposition.
Today, let us remember these two examples of apostolic zeal as we reflect upon our own call through baptism to present the faith of Jesus to our secular world.
Be assured of our prayers for you each day as we continue our journey together and apart.
