“Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood have not revealed it to you, but My Father who is in Heaven. And I say to you: That you are Peter [Cephas, a rock], and upon this rock [Cephas] I will build My Church [ekklesian], and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to you the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. And whatsoever you shall bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in Heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in Heaven”. (Mt 16:17-19)
