The window on the right of the Sanctuary shows St Peter addressing the first Council of the Apostles and below this Pope Eleutherius is shown commissioning St Fagan and his companion preachers to Wales (although there is some doubt about this in historical terms.) Above that window is the 'Quo Vadis' window depicting the legend about St Peter leaving Rome at the time of persecution and meeting Jesus on the Appian Way and asking him: Quo vadis, Domine? (Where are you going, Lord?) Jesus is said to have replied: I am golng to Rome, to be crucified again. Peter took the hint and returned to Rome where he was himself eventually crucified.
