St. Peter the Apostle - Feed My Sheep

Christ's Charge to Peter
by Raphael (1515)
He [Jesus] said to him [Simon Peter] ...
"Feed my lambs."
"Tend my sheep."
"Feed my sheep."


"And so I say to you, you are Peter, ... and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.  I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven."


Peter's Humility Despite His Power and Authority ...
When Peter entered, Cornelius met him and, falling at his feet, paid him homage.  Peter, however, raised him up, saying, "Get up.  I myself am also a human being."
