CWN Editor's Note: On June 29, the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles, Pope Francis delivered an Angelus address in which he reflected on Matthew 16:13-19, the Gospel reading of the day.

“Through His witnesses Peter and Paul, He [the Lord] urges us to take off our masks, to renounce half-measures, the excuses that make us lukewarm and mediocre,” the Pope concluded. “And His question is the same one—Who am I to you? It delves into us. May Our Lady, Queen of the Apostles, help us in this. May she enkindle in us the desire to bear witness to Jesus.”
