Desde el siglo IV se celebra en Roma esta fiesta como señal de que la Iglesia está edificada sobre el Apóstol: ‘La solidez de Pedro que recibió de la piedra que es Cristo, al convertirse él mismo en piedra, la transmite igualmente a sus herederos; y allí donde aparece alguna firmeza se manifiesta indudablemente la fuerza del pastor…’ (San León Magno).
Dios todopoderoso, no permitas que seamos perturbados por ningún peligro, Tú que nos has afianzado sobre la roca de la fe apostólica.
Hoy también celebramos Santa Margarita de Cortona: Huérfana de madre, madre soltera, fundó el Hospital de Santa María de la Misericordia (1278).
Fans of Star Wars and Divergent will revel in internationally bestselling author Veronica Roth?s stunning new science-fiction fantasy series.
On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favoured by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not ? their gifts make them vulnerable to others? control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?
Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra?s currentgift gives her pain and power ? something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother?s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.
Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuvhe, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive ? no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra?s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive ? or to destroy one another.
