Liturgical Note on the Feast of SS Peter and Paul

On the vigil in the Divine Office of Saints Peter and Paul (June 28th), the last lesson with the homily on the Gospel was sung by the Pope himself as the representative of Christ and Peter.
At one time the celebration of this special Roman feast was celebrated by monastics at the Baslica of Saint Paul outside the Walls. The lay people of Rome celebrated at the Basilica of Saint Peter’s at the Vatican.
