‘With a Smile’
Paul arrives in Rome (Acts 28). He stays there for two years.
Scripture is silent from thereon in re Peter and Paul.
Tradition – also a source of revelation, let’s not forget – says that Peter was crucified upside down at the imperial racecourse.
Meanwhile, Paul was beheaded outside the Walls of Rome.
Basilicas now stand where they died – again, a strong tradition.
Well, what are we waiting for?
Life is short, so we might as well bear witness to the truth, as Peter and Paul did.
Good to do it with a smile, too, don’t you think?
