1. St. Peter 32 AD-67 AD

The fisherman from Galilee that became a fisher of men. The rock upon which the Church was built,(his name Peter roughly translates to the word rock),he was told by Jesus to go and feed his lambs,tend his sheep. His missionary work took him to many places until he finally settled in Rome. He was martyred by Emperor Nero,held up with his fellow Christians as scapegoats for the fire that destroyed much of Rome. He was fleeing the city when he saw a vision of Jesus heading back into Rome. He asked where Jesus was going,and Jesus told him he was going into the city,to be crucified again. Peter turned and probably giving the biggest sigh in history,went back to Rome and to his fate. He had failed Jesus before,but not this time. He was crucified upside down,feeling he was unworthy of the same death as his lord and friend.
