Ss. Peter and Paul: Having the Rock of Faith Holding Up the Church
“You are Peter, and on this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” (Mt. 16, 18). The rock (petra) on which the Church is built is Peter’s confession that Christ is the Son of God.
St. Paul: “And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the Church, which is His Body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all” (Eph. 1, 22-23).
