Last Days of Sts. Peter and Paul in Rome

by Steve Ray on June 29, 2018

crucifixion-of-saint-peter-1601Happy Feast Day of Sts. Peter and Paul….

When I take my pilgrims to Rome one of my main objectives is to introduce them to the saints – especially Peter and Paul. We meditate on the last days of the lives, imprisonments, martyrdoms and burials of these two Princes of the Apostles: Peter and Paul. Both of them shed their blood in Rome for Jesus and the Church.

Peter was crucified upside down in Nero’s Circus. We still know the exact spot at the Vatican and the obelisk in the center of St. Peter’s Square witnessed the gory ritual).

(See my documentaries of Peter and Paul all filmed on location here.)

PaulPaul was beheaded on the Ostian Way (I show you the exact spot and the pillar on which his neck was placed).

I love to take pilgrimages to emphasize the utter truth and historicity of Scripture and the tradition of the Catholic Church.

We have a lot to learn and be proud of as Catholics and knowing our history and the price paid by the first Christians is a great starting point.

Enjoy!
