On 29th June we celebrate the feast of St Peter and St Paul. The Christian Church was founded by the faith and leadership of Peter, and the hard missionary work of Paul. Peter and Paul are the two foundation stones,after Christ himself, of the Christian Church.

In some ways Peter and Paul were unlikely choices to help continue the life and work of Jesus – Peter denied knowing Jesus, and Paul had persecuted Christians.  This reminds us that God accepts us as we are, with our limitations.

God our Father,

today we celebrate the feast of Peter and Paul. Through them and their efforts your Church first received the faith; keep us faithful to their teaching.
