Catholic Fact of the Week!

 

 

 

Do you know…

that June 29 is a civic holiday in Rome?

 

On June 29 the Church celebrates the Feast of St. Peter and

St. Paul, the two great apostles that set the Church in Rome and suffered martyrdom for that. 

The City of Rome honors them on their Feast day with a civic holiday, enjoyed through religious and popular celebrations: Mass, First Communions, Confirmations, picnics and more!

Let us remember them and be grateful for their testimony, their teaching and the initial organization of the Church that we enjoy to this day.  St. Peter and St. Paul, pray for us!

St. Pope John Paul II's Prayer for Peace

 

 

 

Lord Jesus Christ,

Who are called the Prince of Peace,

Who are yourself

our peace and reconciliation,

who so often said,

"peace be with you," grant us peace.

Make all men and women 

witnesses of truth,

justice, and brotherly love.

Banish from their hearts whatever

might endanger peace.

Enlighten our rulers that they may

guarantee and defend

the great gift of peace.

May all peoples on the earth

become as brothers and sisters. 

May longed for peace blossom forth

and reign always over us all.
