Thursday in week 13: 1 Kings 8:22-23,27-30; 1 Chronicles 29:10-12; Matthew 16:13-19
Directly following Sts Peter and Paul, our Cathedral Patron Saints, we have the feast of the dedication of the same cathedral.
As we discussed yesterday - names, particularly Biblical ones, are chosen for a reason. Our Cathedral is named for Peter and Paul. It has a fascinating history - recommended reading - which mirrors the reform of the whole church from Vatican II in its location, architecture and growth. Peter, the rock on which we have a firm foundation, Simon, because we listen, and Paul reminding us to be humble. Synodality is written even into the name of our diocesan church!
