‘On this rock I will build my Church’

by Kevin Birnbaum

A double dose of beauty today: 1) the awesome statue of St. Peter in his eponymous square by Giuseppe de Fabris, and 2) the impossibly blue sky over Rome.

“You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Mt 16:18-19)
