St. Peter of Seven Crowns

The remnants of the church of St. Peter of Seven Crowns were found under some massive drywall during the construction of a gas line. The name “of Seven Crowns” is used because the inside of every wall has, along the whole height of the wall, three shallow niches crowned by the arch, and the seventh niche is located on the western wall, where the main entrance is situated. It is possible that the arches symbolize the seven holy sacraments.

The church is researched and conserved. It dates to 7/8th century. There are some urn graves found beside the church, similar to those in Rome.

“O Holy Apostle, you are the Rock upon which Almighty God has built His Church. Obtain for me I pray you: lively faith, firm hope, and burning love, complete detachment from myself, contempt of the world, patience in adversity, humility in prosperity, recollection in prayer, purity of heart, a right intention in all my works, diligence in fulfilling the duties of my state of life, constancy in my resolutions, resignation to the will of God and perseverance in the grace of God even unto death; that so, by means of your intercession and your glorious merits, I may be made worthy to appear before the Chief and Eternal Shepherd of Souls, Jesus Christ, Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns forever. Amen.”
