The Chair of St Peter

February 22

The feast of the Chair of St Peter has been celebrated in Rome since the fourth century. The chair is a symbol of authority, as in a throne; as a king rules from his throne. St Peter was the first Pope and the Pope is the visible head of the Church.

In Matthew 16:18, we read how Jesus told Peter “You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church.”

Today we read about this feast. We discussed papal infallibility. And we made Igneous and Sedimentary Rock Cookies, after reading about the three different classifications of rocks, and of how igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks are formed.

  1. We only made the Igneous and Sedimentary cookies, as we didn’t have the ingredients for the Metamorphic ones. The Sedimentary are very more-ish, so be warned! The Igneous is a bit like fudge – very sweet.
