A Prayer to St. Peter the Apostle, for the Forgiveness of Sins
Blessed Apostle Peter, to whom God has given the keys of the kingdom of Heaven,
and the power to bind and loose, grant that we may be delivered through the help
of your intercession from the bonds of our sins.
O, Holy Shepherd, Prince of the Apostles, pray for us that we may be made worthy
of the promises of Christ.
Amen. A Prayer to A Prayer to St. Peter the Apostle, for the Forgiveness of Sins, for Everlasting Happiness
O glorious Saint Peter, who, in return for thy strong and generous faith, thy profound and sincere humility, and thy burning love, was rewarded by Jesus Christ with singular privileges, and, in particular, with the leadership of the other Apostles and the primacy of the whole Church, of which thou was made the foundation stone, do thou 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, and to sacrifice of life itself rather than surrender. Obtain for us likewise, a sincere loyalty to our holy mother, the Church; grant that we may ever remain most closely and sincerely united to the Roman Pontiff, who is the heir of thy faith and of thy authority, the one, true, visible Head of the Catholic Church, that mystic ark outside of which there is no salvation. Grant, moreover, that we may follow, in all humility and meekness, her teaching and her advice, and may be obedient to all her precepts, in order to be able here on earth to enjoy a peace that is sure and undisturbed, and to attain one day in heaven to everlasting happiness. Amen. A Prayer to A Prayer to St. Peter the Apostle, for the Forgiveness of Sins, for Grace

Let us thus enjoy an undisturbed peace on earth and everlasting happiness in heaven.
