Where is the link to Peter?


I don’t quite understand the link that the Catholic church claims to Peter. I’ve done much research and haven’t been able to find much that really clarifies my inquiry.

I understand what Christ said to Peter, but don’t understand the linkage between Catholicism and Peter.

If anyone can help me with this it would be much appreciated.

With Love and in Christ,


Hi Trew,

This should give you some perspective:


Peter, Apostle, Saint


Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
