Quo vadis, John Corapi?

From Wikipedia:

Quo vadis? is a Latin phrase meaning “Where are you going?” or “Whither goest thou?”

The modern usage of the phrase refers to Christian tradition, related in the apocryphal Acts of Peter (Vercelli Acts XXXV), in which Saint Peter meets Jesus as Peter is fleeing from likely crucifixion in Rome.

Peter asks Jesus the question “Quo vadis?”

Jesus’ answer, “I am going to Rome to be crucified again.” (Eo Romam iterum crucifigi) prompts Peter to gain the courage to continue his ministry and eventually become a martyr.
