WHAT DOES QUO VADIS? MEAN IN ENGLISH?

quo vadis?

Quo vadis?

Quo vadis? is a Latin phrase meaning "Where are you going?", or more precisely "Whither goest thou?". The modern usage of the phrase refers to a Christian tradition regarding Saint Peter. According to the apocryphal Acts of Peter, Peter is fleeing from likely crucifixion in Rome at the hands of the government, and along the road outside the city he meets a risen Jesus. In the Latin translation, Peter asks Jesus "Quo vadis?", to which he replies, "Romam vado iterum crucifigi". Peter thereby gains the courage to continue his ministry and returns to the city, to eventually be martyred by being crucified upside-down. The phrase also occurs a few times in the Vulgate translation of the Bible, notably in John 13:36 when Peter asks Jesus the same question, to which he responds, "Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me." The Church of Domine Quo Vadis in Rome is built where, according to legend, the meeting between Peter and Jesus took place.
