Saint Peter and Saint Paul Day: For this reason it is celebrated every June 29 | Answers


This Saturday, June 29, the St. Peter and St. Paul’s Day, one of the most important festivals for faithful followers of the Catholic Church. This date commemorates the joint feast of both the apostles and the witnesses of Jesus.

As the Bible says, Simon was baptized by Jesus of Nazareth as Peter, the first disciple of the Son of God and elected the first Pope of the Catholic Church. He was a fisherman by profession before becoming a disciple of Jesus. His daily activity led him to entrust Jesus with the task of being a “fisher of men.” For this reason, Pedro is considered the “Patron of Fishermen”.

Likewise, Christ renamed Peter the “Rock” of the Church and spoke to him the following words: “You Peter, on this rock I will build my church”, a phrase found in the biblical text Matthew 16,16. After this event, Peter humbly accepted the mission until the day he died as a martyr.

On the other hand, in the beginning, St. Paul was a persecutor of Christians when he was known as Paul of Tarsus. Later, he converted to Christianity and changed his name to what we know today. Saint Paul is considered the “Apostle of the Gentiles”.

Paul is regarded by all Catholics as a model of evangelism because after finding Jesus Christ on his way, he gave himself to the cause of the Gospel.
