Tu es Petrus

Today's Gospel is from Matthew 16.

Thou art Peter and upon this Rock, I will build my Church and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.

Here is Palestrina's beautiful version of the verse in Latin.

Thanks!

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
