post-title

The Saint of the day November 18 is Dedication of the basilicas of Saints Peter and Paul, which name day is celebrated and other saints that are celebrated on this date.


Dedication of the basilicas of Saints Peter and Paul

Since the twelfth century in the Vatican basilica of San Pietro and in that of San Paolo on via Ostiense, the anniversaries of their dedications made in the fourth century by the Holy Pontiffs Silvestro and Siricio were celebrated.

The celebration of this commemoration in more recent times was extended to all the churches of the Roman rite.


Just as on 5 August on the anniversary of the dedication of the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, the motherhood of the Virgin Mother of God is celebrated, so on 18 November the dedication of the basilicas of Saints Peter and Paul, the two greatest apostles of Christ, is celebrated.

The memory of the dedication of the basilicas of Saints Peter Paul apostles represents a new opportunity to reflect on the figure and work of these two apostles.
