The Chair of St.Peter


(Matthew 16:18-19): And I tell you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and doors or power of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. And whatever you bind on earth shall be bound also in heaven and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed the Skies.Verbum Domini.
The Vatican City, one of the most sacred places in Christendom, attests to a great history and a formidable spiritual venture. A unique collection of artistic and architectural masterpieces lie within the boundaries of this small state. At its centre is St Peter's Basilica, with its double colonnade and a circular piazza in front and bordered by palaces and gardens. The basilica, erected over the tomb of St Peter the Apostle, is the largest religious building in the world, the fruit of the combined genius of Bramante, Raphael, Michelangelo, Bernini and Maderna.
