Fellow's Rome Temple Tour: DATES ANNOUNCED
Fellow's Rome Temple Tour: DATES ANNOUNCED
Paul was aware of the importance of the first Christian community of Rome. In fact much of the correspondence that he wrote addressed the brothers and sisters living in the capital of the empire. Most likely even Peter, the first President of the Church after the departure of the Savior, reached the center of an already developed communication system, willing to spread the "good news" throughout its branches. After almost 2000 years from the endeavors and extreme sacrifice of these Authorities, their message is strongly reaffirmed as the ancient metropolis is seeing the construction of a temple!
