Well, this one was new on me, but today is the feast of the chair of St. Peter. Of course, it’s not really about the chair. Here’s an excerpt from a write up on the feast day from AmericanCatholic.org:
Like the committee chair, this chair refers to the occupant, not the furniture. Its first occupant stumbled a bit, denying Jesus three times and hesitating to welcome gentiles into the new Church. Some of its later occupants have also stumbled a bit, sometimes even failed scandalously. As individuals, we may sometimes think a particular pope has let us down. Still, the office endures as a sign of the long tradition we cherish and as a focus for the universal Church.
Anyway, I’d recommend you read the rest of the write up HERE.
