Saints Peter and Paul


Celebrating the great feast of Saints Peter and Paul, we see the Pauline year brought to a close. It was called both to honour the 2000th anniversary of his birth, and to increase devotion to this great Apostle of the Gentiles. But what joy is ours to discover, from the mouth of the Successor of Peter, that an archaeological probe had been inserted into the tomb believed to be Saint Paul's and that carbon dating had been done on bones found there, “confirming the unanimous and uncontested tradition that they are the mortal remains of the Apostle Paul".

We thank God for this discovery which will give so much more strength to the devotion and piety of Catholics everywhere. It calls back memories of our own recent pilgrimage to Saint Paul's Outside the Walls to gain the plenary indulgence.

Dear Reverend Father Michael Mary, F.SS.R.

During your Pilgrimage to Rome, eager to know everything, I have read any of your posts.

I think that the discovery of the mortal remains of Saint Paul only few days after your leaving from Rome and just when the Pauline year brought to a close has to be considered as both a sort of Miracle and a warning to secularists.

God Sits Beside You, Father

With All Respect
