Tale of Two Saints

St. Peter and St. Paul

On Monday, June 29th we celebrate Sts. Peter and Paul.  This is not an ordinary feast day, but the patronal feast of the City of Rome. These two were the greatest among the apostles and martyrs. But, why celebrate them on the same day? Come to The Crossroads Initiative and read a moving tribute by Saint Augustine and discover the amazing power of these Saints.

Be sure to check out the Home page - we have the Daily Mass readings accessible for everyone!
