Peter the Rock

The Pontiff

IL PAPA to you.

This is THE ROCK

upon which Jesus built HIS church.

And when HE said THE ROCK

HE did not literally refer to a boulder-size stone,

which you can kiss to attain forgiveness.

HE meant a steadfast, durable, fiery PETER

who now holds the key to the Gate of Heaven,

and can let loose or bind any soul on earth.

The Pontiff, or commonly called, the Pope

holds sway over the dogma and practices

of the Roman catholic Church,

and no other religion on earth is directed as such.

The present Pontiff, Pope Francis,

is the direct successor

to the Apostle St. Peter.

There is no other revelation from God

after the death of the last Apostle.
