Peter Paul Rubens. God died for me. I will try and honor Him
The Statue of St. Peter, inside St. Peter`s Basilica - Tradition has St. Peter crucified "juxta obeliscum" - next to the obelisk, which was in the center of the circus. It is likely, then, that this obelisk is the last thing that St. Peter saw - and is thus truly a "relic by contact" of the saint. Indeed, it must have been the silent witness to countless Christian martyrs through the years. http://stpetersbasilica.info/Docs/seminarians.htm

"To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in His mouth." When they hurled their insults at Him, He did not retaliate; when He suffered,He made no threats. Instead, He entrusted Himself to Him who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed." 1 Peter 2:21-24
