The 29th of June is the feast day of Saints Peter and Paul. It is also known as the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul. See this list for Saint Peter’s patronage. He is invoked against foot problems, fever and longevity. Saint Paul is the patron saint of missions; theologians; and Gentile Christians. Saints Peter and Paul were Apostles of Jesus, Saint Peter being the leader of the twelve, whereas Saint Paul followed Christ after the Lord’s ascension. The two saints are the founders of the Church in Rome. Both were martyred in close location, Peter was first martyred by being crucified upside down and Saint Paul was beheaded. Some traditions have them martyred on the same day. Saint Peter was crucified and buried on where Saint Peter’s Basilica is now located. Saint Paul was beheaded on the via Ostia and buried where the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls is. They are both the patron saints of Rome.

Dear cchildren, my words are simple but are filled with motherly love and care. My children, all the more the shadows of darkness and deception are being cast over you, and I am calling you to the light and truth - I am calling you to my Son. Only He can transform despair and suffering into peace and clarity; only He can give hope in the deepest pain. My Son is the life of the world. The more that you come to know Him - the more that you come close to Him - all the more you will love Him, because my Son is love. Love changes everything; it makes most beautiful also that which, without love, seems insignificant to you. That is why, anew, I am saying to you that you must love a lot if you desire to grow spiritually. I know, apostles of my love, that it is not always easy, but, my children, also the painful paths are paths which lead to spiritual growth, to faith, and to my Son. My children, pray - think of my Son. In all the moments of the day, raise your soul to Him, and I will gather your prayers as flowers from the most beautiful garden and give them as a gift to my Son. Be true apostles of my love; spread the love of my Son to everyone. Be gardens of the most beautiful flowers. With your prayers help your shepherds that they may be spiritual fathers filled with love for all people. Thank you.
