Why Do We Celebrate the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul on the same day?
by St. Augustine of Hippo
“Both apostles share the same feast day, for these two were one; and even though they suffered on different days, they were as one. Peter went first, and Paul followed. And so we celebrate this day made holy for us by the apostles’ blood. Let us embrace what they believed, their life, their labors, their sufferings, their preaching, and their confession of faith.”
Feast Day, June 29

Through this practice, we are invited to spend time alone with God in His real, physical form, and to bring to Jesus all our cares, concerns, prayers, hopes, and thoughts. We set aside a special time, a respite from our hectic modern lives, to create a personal space in which to meet our God.
“When you look at the Crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you then. When you look at the Sacred Heart Host you understand how much Jesus loves you now.”
