Chair of Saint Peter


Today is the feast of the Chair of Saint Peter. The chair of Saint Peter, I wonder what kind of chair he sat in? The La-Z-Boy had yet to be invented, and I doubt the Saint sat on a throne like Caesar or even Charlemagne. Rocking chair? I don’t think so! I picture him siting on a big rock with his head in his hands. His chair, from what I read, stands for the unity of all Jesus Christ’s Church. We all know how that goes, Pope Francis occupies that chair today. That’s not an easy job. The Pope does have a request for us. He asks that we pray for all persecuted Christians. That is his special intention. I thought I would pass it along, and make his burden just a little easier.
