Saint Peter  First century. Feast Day: June 29.

Patron of: The Universal Church. Stone masons. Bakers. Peter was the leader of the original twelve apostles. His bad temper and errors in judgement make him the most human of apostles. It was to him that Jesus left the leadership of his church, calling Peter the rock. He was martyred in Rome by being crucified upside down, and the site of his tomb is now Saint Peter’s Basilica. He holds two keys, one of heaven, one of hell. He has an open book for the wide ranging spread of the faith.
