"For by your providence the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul bring us joy: Peter, foremost in confessing the faith, Paul, its outstanding preacher, Peter, who established the early Church from the remnant of Israel, Paul, master and teacher of the Gentiles that you call. And so, each in a different way gathered together the one family of Christ; and revered together throughout the world, they share one Martyr’s crown." – from the Preface for the feast of SS Peter & Paul (29 June). 5th-century mosaic from the chapel of St Venantius in the Baptistery of the Lateran Basilica, the Mother Church of Rome and the world.
