Petro et Paulo round up

A bit late, but I had to wait until after June 19th ended around the world.

Alleluia verse: Matt. 16:18
Alleluia, alleluia. Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church. Alleluia.

In simple terms for the non-Catholics out there, the Feast of Ss Peter and Paul on June 29 is when the newly installed archbishops around the world gather in Rome to receive the pallium, a symbol of the archbishop's authority and unity with the pope.

From Second Vespers:
This day Simon Peter ascended the gibbet of the cross, alleluia. This day the key-bearer of heaven went on his way to Christ with joy. This day the apostle Paul, the light of the world, bowing his head for the name of Christ, was crowned with martyrdom, alleluia.
