Story about the finding of the bones of Saint Peter after 2,000 years: "Bones of St. Peter find a mystery story with Texas oilman at its core."


“50 years ago today… Paul VI issued a proclamation that the Catholic Church had discovered and authenticated the bones of St. Peter.”

“While few people know the great detective story of the discovery of the bones of the Church’s first pope, even fewer are aware of the fact that the entire effort was privately financed by a Texas oil magnate.”


Great story. Thanks for the link! :+1:
