The Vicar of Christ is the Guardian of Christ’s flock

Posted by catholicus on May 13, 2006


“Blessed art thou, Simon Bar­Jona, because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but My Father Who is in Heaven: and I say to thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this Rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it; and to thee I will give the keys of the kingdom of Heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in Heaven; and whatsoever thou shall loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in Heaven.” (Matthew 16: 13-19) and “Feed my lambs, … feed my sheep!” (John 21:16-17), these words of the Divine Shepherd to the Prince of the Apostles Saint Peter, constitute him the guardian of Christ’s flock.
