THE FEAST OF THE APOSTLES SS PETER AND PAUL

We owe to the Holy Apostles the priceless treasure of the Christian faith. They handed Christ’s teachings down to us. From them, we received the Holy Gospels and the letters of the Apostles. They built on the firm foundation which is Christ. 

On the 29th of June our Eastern Church celebrates with great solemnity the feast which is called: “The Holy Illustrious and Ever-praised Major Apostles, Peter and Paul.” Both Apostles are distinguished for their character, their zealous apostolic labors and their great example of following Jesus Christ. 

Jesus Christ, having great plans for St. Peter at the beginning of his calling, changed the name Simon to the name of Peter (Cephas, Gr.) which means rock, for he was to be the rock that will form part of the foundation of Jesus’s Church. St. Peter witnessed the glory of Christ on Mt. Tabor; he professed the divinity of Christ, he was sent with St. John to prepare the Paschal Supper; He witnessed Christ’s agony in the Garden of Olives; the temple tax was paid by Christ for Himself and for Peter. 

After the Ascension of Christ, St. Peter became the head of the Apostles and the leader of the first Christian community in Jerusalem. 

The love of Christ was the chief motive of Peter’s apostolic activity, labors and sacrifices. That love finally led him to suffer and die for the sake of his beloved Teacher. A pious tradition relates that he considered himself unworthy to die on the cross as Christ did, and therefore asked to be crucified upside down. St. Peter was martyred in Rome during the reign of Emperor Nero between the years 64 and 67 A.D.

St. Paul did not belong to the original group of the twelve apostles, but through his apostolic labors, his dedication, his great sacrifices, and his sufferings in the service of Christ, he received the title ‘Apostle’, along with Peter, of the First Apostle. He is the only one of the Apostles who was highly educated and was by birth a Roman citizen. While Paul was on his way to Damascus, Christ Himself called him to repentance and Paul became a zealous follower of Jesus Christ.
