Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul

" I, Paul, am already being poured out like a libation,and the time of my departure is at hand.I have competed well; I have finished the race;I have kept the faith.From now on the crown of righteousness awaits me,which the Lord, the just judge,will award to me on that day, and not only to me,but to all who have longed for his appearance.
The Lord stood by me and gave me strength,so that through me the proclamation might be completed and all the Gentiles might hear it.And I was rescued from the lion's mouth.The Lord will rescue me from every evil threat and will bring me safe to his heavenly Kingdom.To him be glory forever and ever. Amen."
- 2 Tm 4:6-8, 17-18
In connection with this solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, my archbishop, Allen Vigneron, received the pallium from Pope Benedict XVI today. He has been blogging about his experiences here. His entries, along with those who have been travelling with him, have been pretty interesting, so check it out.
