June 29 - Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul, Apostles

Today the Church celebrates the lives of the two great apostles, Peter and 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. To them Rome owes her true greatness, for it was under God's providential guidance that they were led to make the capital of the Empire, sanctified by their martyrdom, the center of the Christian world whence should radiate the preaching of the Gospel.  Today's readings - http://www.usccb.org/bible/http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/062915-day.cfm
