This Sunday is the Feast Day of St Peter and St Paul, the twin founders of the Church in Rome.
St Peter, a fisherman, became the leader of the apostles and the rock on which the Church is built, while St Paul preached fearlessly in many different places. St Peter died by crucifixion while St Paul was beheaded. Both proclaimed with their lives that Jesus is the Son of God.
