Two pillars of the church

Impressive statue of St Peter outside his Basilica in Rome
Tomorrow we celebrate the feast of the apostles Peter and Paul, and in their honor I share with you today some photos I took during my recent visit to Rome. Two of the most impressive Basilicas are actually St. Peter’s at the Vatican and San Paolo fuori le mura, and I share some photos of the statues of these two pillars of the Church.

  1. Father Julian,

    I am looking for a picture of St. Peter to use in an invitation for a fundraiser in my parents' church in Tracy, California ---- St. Bernard Catholic Church. Would you give me permission to use the photo?
