O glorious Saint Peter, who, in return for your strong and generous faith, your profound and sincere humility, and your burning love, was rewarded by Jesus Christ with singular privileges.
In particular, you were graced with the leadership of the other apostles and the primacy of the whole church, of which you were made the foundation stone.
Please obtain for us the grace of a lively faith, that shall not fear to profess itself openly, in its entirety and in all of its manifestations, even to the shedding of blood, if occasion should demand it.
Make us willing to sacrifice life itself rather than surrender.
Obtain for us, likewise, a sincere loyalty to the church.
Grant, moreover, that we may follow, in all humility and meekness, her teaching and her advice, and may be obedient to all her precepts.
Grant us this in order that we be able here on Earth to enjoy a peace that is sure and undisturbed, and to attain one day in Heaven everlasting happiness.
