Prayer to Saint Peter
O Glorious Saint Peter, because of your vibrant and generous faith, sincere humility and flaming love our Lord honored you with singular privileges and especially leadership of the whole Church. Obtain for us the grace of a living faith, a sincere loyalty to the Church, acceptance of all her teaching, and obedience to all her precepts. Let us thus enjoy an undisturbed peace on earth and everlasting happiness in heaven.
This has always been one of my favourite Bible passages.I find it so very awe inspiring that Peter was the first Pope...directed to this position from Jesus himself.
"And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church..."
