Feast of SS Peter and Paul

Dom Gueranger tells us that this is one of the most ancient feasts of the Church, and because St Paul died with his comrade in death, a festival in a sense of the whole apostolic college.

Today the focus is on St Peter (have your Peter's pence at the ready!); tomorrow more on St Paul. It is also the FSSP's patronal feast.

Because the Pope is inaugurating the Pauline Year, however, this year the balance will change a little with a special first Vespers showing on EWTN at 1.30am and again at 8am today.
