Saint peter's day

This June 29 is celebrated the Day of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, a very significant double saints for those of the Catholic faith, since both saints are highly revered for their qualities and their immense dedication to God.

Why is this day Saint Peter and Saint Paul celebrated?

Prayer to Saint Peter and Saint Paul to open paths

The Feast of Saint Peter and Saint Paulwhose official name is «Joint Solemnity of Saints Peter and Saints Paul», is the commemoration of the martyrdom in Rome of the apostles Simon Peter and Paul of Tarsus, celebrated on June 29 in all the Catholic churches of the world.

That of June 29, is one of the largest religious celebrations for Catholic and Orthodox Christians, not only because it is the anniversary of the deaths of two saints who gave their lives for their faith, but also because the holiday has been of importance to the modern ecumenical movement.

Saint Peter the Apostle: Follower of God, preacher and disciple of Jesus

Simon Peter or Saint Peter, is one of the Twelve Apostles that appear in the New Testament, a Galilean fisherman from the town of Bethsaida or Capernaum and possibly a follower of John the Baptist.

It is said that he was one of the most prominent disciples of Jesus of Nazareth. His birth name was Shimon bar Iona and he was a fisherman by trade on the Sea of ​​Galilee.

He is also known as the prince of the apostles and the first known pope. The Catholic Church identifies him based, among other arguments, on the words that Jesus addressed to him:

«You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church, and the power of death will not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Peter died martyred under Nero in the Vatican Hill Circus at the same time as the Apostle Saint Paul. In the XNUMXth century, Emperor Constantine I the Great had a large basilica built over his grave.

The Catholics of the world pray to Saint Peter every June 29 in his saints and thank him for his blessings.

We also ask him for help in dealing with difficult situations and decisions and we pray to him to obtain his blessing and to fight against the temptations along the way.

Many join Peter and Paul, glorious Christian apostles, to ask that they open the way for us to reach our destiny in life.

In addition, most Catholics go to the many temples dedicated to the apostles around the world and bring candles and flowers to place before their images and thus thank them for their eternal sacrifice.

Before invoking the saint we can light a candle, dedicate the flowers we want, and with great faith we first thank him for his protection every day.

Glorious Saint Peter,
Holy chosen by God,

Good luck and good things.

To be able to succeed in life, win the games
And get money in abundance.
You are honorable and therefore I come before you,
Thank you for always listening and supporting me.
