Chair of Saint Peter

The feast of St Peter's Chair reminds us of the symbolic authority that Jesus gave Peter, who started the Christian community in Rome. After preaching in Jerusalem and Antioch, Peter finally went to Rome where he resided as the head of the Church as its first Bishop or Pope. Peter put the ministry Jesus had given him first, and the fledgling Church was his main priority.Runtime: 1:30 mins
