The Latin name of today’s feast in the Tridentine Missal and Breviary is “Sancti Petri ad Vincula”, which is translated literally as “the feast of St Peter at the chains”, not “the feast of St Peter’s chains” or “of St Peter in chains.” This title is found in the oldest liturgical books which attest to it, and even earlier, in the list of the station churches given by the lectionary of Wurzburg, from the mid-seventh century. (Stations are kept there on the Mondays of the first week of Lent and the Pentecost octave.)
The beginning of the calendar for August in the Echternach Sacramentary. (895 A.D.; Bibliothèque nationale de France, Département des manuscrits, Latin 9433) “On the Kalends of August, (the feast of) St Peter at the chains, and the birth of the seven Maccabee brothers with their mother.”
Like many specifically Roman feasts, it began as the dedication feast of a basilica, which in this case is located on the Esquiline hill, within sight of the Colosseum. When a city has more than one church dedicated to the same Saint, they are often distinguished from each other by nicknames; the appellation “at the chains” would therefore serve to distinguish it from the Vatican basilica. Its great antiquity is demonstrated by the fact that it was restored by Pope Sixtus III in the 430s; an inscription which records the restoration mentions that the building was already considered old, and that the Pope re-dedicated it to both Apostolic founders of the See of Rome.
The breviary refers very obliquely to a tradition stated more explicitly in the Golden Legend and elsewhere, namely, that the Romans dedicated the month of August to honoring the Emperor Augustus’ memory, and that this second feast of St Peter was created to supplant this holiday. It is true that the Latin names for the seventh and eighth months of the year were originally “Quintilis” and “Sextilis”, and that the Emperor Augustus renamed the former for his adoptive father, Julius Caesar, and the latter for himself. However, it is not likely that the cult of “the divine Augustus” was so vibrant in the mid-5th century as to require serious opposition from the Church. There are 32 days between June 29th, St Peter’s principal feast day, and August 1st; this perhaps suggests the tradition that Peter was bishop of Antioch for seven years, and bishop of Rome for twenty-five, a total of 32 as the visible head of the Church, one less than the 33 years of Our Lord’s earthly life.
The breviary lessons for the feast day also give the traditional story of the church’s famous relic. When the Empress Eudocia, the wife of Theodosius II, went to Jerusalem in the year 438, she received as a gift the chain by which St Peter was held in prison under King Herod, as narrated in the Epistle of the feast day, Acts 12, 1-11. She then sent it to her daughter Eudoxia in Rome, who in turn presented it to the Pope. When it was exposed for the veneration of the faithful together with the chain by which Peter had been held during his imprisonment in Rome under the Emperor Nero, the two chains were miraculously united, so as to appear to be a single chain.

He was buried in the Bucci family tomb in Corato, where the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta was buried until 1963. On July 3, 1963 Luisa’s body was moved inside the Church Santa Maria Greca, Corato, Italy.
Born in Corato June 15, 1935 – He grew to know Luisa from a young boy and saw many Miracles around her and was prophesied to become a priest by Luisa.
Ordained March 14, 1964 in the Capuchin Church of Triggiano, Italy by his Excellency Mgr. Nicodemo, Archbishop of Bari.
Padre Bucci’s beloved Aunt Rosaria Bucci (1898-1978), for most of her life personally cared for the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta. She instrumentally and tirelessly promoted the beginnings of the Cause of Luisa at the Spiritual Direction of St. Padre Pio. Rosaria personally gave to Padre Bucci Volumes 35 and 36 from the book of Heaven, original Volumes that did not go to the Vatican at the time of confiscation. Fr. Bucci was the first priest to read and study and put into practice the Truths given to Luisa from Jesus.
Our Lady, Santa Maria Greca, The Protectress of Corato, has shown a GREAT LIGHT to us, as he passed on the eve of the Feast of Santa Maria Greca, with his Funeral Mass being offered in Bari on her Feast day.

Pray for Padre Bucci, for the Church and all souls!

BEAUTIFUL SUFFRAGE THROUGH LUISA…
V12 – 3.14.19 – “Once you did for me a beautiful suffrage. If you knew the Good you did to me, the Refreshment that I felt, the years that I paid off….” And I: ‘I Luisa, don’t remember. Tell me what it was, and I will repeat it for you.’ And he: “You Immersed yourself in the Divine Volition, and took Its Power, the Immensity of Its Love, the Immense Value of the Pains of the Son of God and of All the Divine Qualities. You came over me and Poured them upon me; and as you Poured them, I received the Bath of the Love that the Divine Power contains, the Bath of the Beauty, the Bath of the Blood of Jesus, and of All the Divine Qualities. Who can tell you the Good you did to me? They were all Baths which contained a Divine Power and Immensity. Repeat it for me – repeat it for me.”
V19 – 6.21.26 – This morning, having received Holy Communion, I received It as usual in the Most Holy Will of God, offering It to my dear Saint Aloysius (Fr. Bucci) – not only the Communion, but all the Goods contained in the Most Holy Will of God, for his accidental glory. Now, while doing this, I saw that all the Goods contained in the Supreme Volition, like many Rays of Light, Rays of Beauty and of multiple Colors, Inundated the dear Saint (Fr. Bucci) , giving him an Infinite glory.
V26 – 6.27.29 – Having received Holy Communion, I was offering It for the glory of Saint Aloysius (Fr. Bucci) , and I offered, as a present for him, everything that Our Lord had done in His Divine Will with His Mind, with His Words, Works and Steps, for the accidental glory of Saint Aloysius (Fr. Bucci) on his feast day. Now, while I was doing this, my Sweet Jesus, Moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, a more Beautiful Present you could not give to dear Saint Aloysius (Fr. Bucci) on the day of his feast. As you were offering your Communion and all My Acts done in My Divine Will, So Many SUNS were Formed for as many Acts as I did in It while being on earth; and these SUNS Invested Saint Aloysius (Fr. Bucci) , in such a way that he received so much accidental glory from the earth, that he could not receive more. Only the Offerings of Acts done In My Divine Will have the Virtue of Forming their SUNS, because, containing the Fullness of Light, it is no wonder that It Converts into SUNS the human acts done in It.”
