Today commemorates the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, the Apostles. We are reminded about the lives laid down by these two great pillars of the Catholic church. However difficult were the obstacles during their days, they set the finest example of evangelism, thus were able to proclaim the good news of the Gospel up to their very deaths.
"You are Peter and upon this rock I will build my Church,
and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it."
