Inoltre, il Vangelo di oggi ci ricorda che Gesù ha voluto per la sua Chiesa anche un centro visibile di comunione in Pietro – anche lui, non è una grande pietra, è una piccola pietra, ma presa da Gesù diventa centro di comunione – in Pietro e in coloro che gli sarebbero succeduti nella stessa responsabilità primaziale, che fin dalle origini sono stati identificati nei Vescovi di Roma, la città dove Pietro e Paolo hanno reso la testimonianza del sangue.

Moreover, today’s Gospel reminds us that Jesus also wanted for His Church a visible center of communion in Peter – even he isn’t a large stone, he is a small stone, but taken by Jesus he becomes center of communion — in Peter and in those that would succeed him in the same primatial responsibility, which from the beginning were identified in the Bishops of Rome, the city where Peter and Paul gave the witness of blood. – Angelus Address: Every little stone has its place in the Church (full translation) | ZENIT (My emphasis)
Earlier having said:
He says to Simon: “You, Simon, are Peter – namely stone, rock – and on this rock I will build my Church” (v. 18).
Pietro è una piccola pietra
Pietro è una piccola pietra?!
Peter is a small stone?!
Isn’t this what protestant reformers say to undercut the papacy so as to justify their breaking away from the Church and her head the successor of St. Peter, a position that cannot withstand Peter the Rock apologetic of Karl Keating? And haven’t more recent Protestants backed away from the position that early Protestants felt forced to make and have been able to admit that Peter is, indeed, the rock?

he has Catholics scratching their heads.
