La Iglesia de San Pedro

La Iglesia de San Pedro

The Church of San Pedro in Ávila is at the edge of a small plaza and grabbed my attention by its simplicity. It isn’t grand like the amazing cathedrals I’ve seen all over Spain, but the church, in the dazzling sun light on a beautiful autumn day, spoke to me. The church is named after Peter, an apostle who is called the rock on which Christ will build the church. I was awed by the significance of the everlasting character of the salvation that believers of Christ have. The physical church will pass away with time, but the rock and Christ on which my faith is built will not perish.
