Dear Uncle John,
Why dose ST Peter hold up two fingers.
But mark tiped it.
you guys are the best (you know how to make me happy with all the best questions!)!
st. peter holds up not two fingers which is what it might look like, but he's actually holding up three fingers: his index finger, middle finger and his thumb finger.
there are different meanings for these three raised fingers. i like the idea that its because jesus is a priest, prophet and king or that the pope touches heaven, purgatory and earth.
hope everybody is having lots of summer fun!
