St Peter & St Paul appear to St Dominic

Today, 29 June, is the feast of Ss Peter & Paul.

 

Once, while praying in the old St Peter's Basilica in Rome, Saint Dominic saw a vision. The apostle Peter handed him a staff, and the apostle Paul handed him a book. Together, they spoke to him, saying, "Go and preach, because you have been chosen by God for this work."

 

This window depicting the vision is in St Dominic's church, London.
