The Vatican will mark the conclusion of the “Year of Faith” with the first public exhibition of the the relics of St. Peter, the Apostle and first Bishop of Rome.

On 8 November 2013 Msgr. Rino Fisichella, president for the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, announced in an editorial published in the semi-official newspaper L’Osservatore Romano St. Peter’s relics will be removed from their grotto and placed on display to mark the close of the Year of Faith  on 24 November.

The editorial did not offer further details, but announced the Year of Faith – a major evangelization initiative for the Roman Catholic Church – will conclude on Sunday the 24th with Pope Francis celebrating the Eucharist in St Peter’s Square.

in the 1950’s while excavating to build the Domminus Flavit
church on the Mount of Olives then in Jordan an ossuary
was found and on it inscribed ” Simon Bar Jonah” the name
of the deciple Peter no other such name has ever been
found , initially reported in the press it quickly disappeared and
the ossuary quickly moved to a locked vault of the Church of the Flagellation on the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem and off limits to visitors,,,
so who are really buried in Grant’s or St Peter’s tombs…??!!!
