We are celebrating the Feast of Peter and Paul a day early, and to do so we’ve invited Jona Winkleman. She is the Pastoral Care Director at Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Wayzata, MN, previously was an assistant professor at DeSales University, has a Sacred Theological License in Dogmatic Theology from the Angelicum in Rome, and while in Rome she was an Official Guide for the Fabrica San Pietro at the Vatican, which is also known as the Scavi. The Scavi is the Necropolis beneath St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, and contains the bones of St. Peter. Jona takes us through the history of how St. Peter came to be there, the burial of his body, Constantine’s part in the story, and the finding and verification of the Peter’s bones in the 20th century. It is quite a story – with more than a few twists and turns, and even an amazing story of love that Peter had a part in just a few years ago. St. Peter – Pray for us!
