St Peter Patron of the Church
Figurine comes nicely displayed in a clear fronted box with the the Story of the saint on the outside and a prayer card inside.
St Peter was a brother of St Andrew and his original name was Simon. These brothers were fishermen on the Sea of Galilee. When Simon was about forty years old, his brother Andrew introduced him to Jesus, our Divine Redeemer, who gave him the name of Peter. In time Jesus told both Peter and Andrew that if they followed him, he would make them fishers of men. St Peter and St Andrew became two of the Apostles of Jesus.
St Peter proved the weakness of human beings by being the one that betrayed Christ during his time on earth by three times denying that he knew Jesus. However, even though he spoke betrayal, St Peter’s heart remained loyal and dedicated to Jesus. Because of his experience with failure, and the compassion and mercy given to him by God, St Peter showed tenderness and compassion to other sinners.
When Jesus asked his disciples what they thought he was, Peter answered that Jesus was the Son of the living God. Due to his deep faith and devotion, Jesus gave St Peter the keys to the kingdom of heaven. St Peter preached about Jesus to many and was the founder of the Church, St Peter was the first Pope or Vicar of Christ on Earth and was given wonderful power and jurisdiction.

God even unto death; that so, by means of your intercession and your glorious merits, I may be made worth to appear before the chief and eternal Shepherd of souls, Jesus Christ, who with the father and the Holy spirit lives and reigns for ever.
