When you visit Rome the statues of Sts. Peter and Paul are everywhere. The Church there takes great pride that its foundation includes these two pillars of the Faith. In one of the epistles we read something that applies to both apostles: The Lord stood by me and gave me strength, so that through me the proclamation might be completed. When you read the New Testament you get a feel for the personalities of these two saints. Their flaws and faults are there for all to see. Yet God used them the way they were as part of the Divine Plan. That’s our story as well. God doesn’t wait for us to become perfect but wants us to spread Good News just as we are.
