The See of St Peter the Apostle

The 22nd of February is the feast of the See of St Peter.

According to the note in the Breviary: "The feast of the See of Saint Peter has been kept at Rome on this day from the fourth century as a symbol of the unity of the church founded on the Apostle Saint Peter."

The Lord said to Peter: "To you I give the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven" (Matthew 16: 18-19)
