"And Peter directed his gaze at him, with John, and said, 'Look at us.' And he fixed his attention upon them, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said, 'I have no silver and gold, but I give you what I have; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.' And he took him by the right hand and raised him up; and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. And leaping up he stood and walked and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God." (Acts 3:4-7)
We are strengthened in our needs and in our weakness by the authoritative word of St. Peter who speaks in the name of Jesus Christ. Through Saint Peter's successors, the Popes, Saint Peter continues to strengthen us and heal us by his authoritative teaching, enabling us to follow him in offering a sacrifice of praise.
In this program, a bishop or priest reads and comments on the teachings of the Successors of Saint Peter, the Popes. Throughout the course of this program, papal encyclicals and apostolic exhortations, apostolic letters, homilies and messages are read in their entirety, one section at a time.
