Prayer to St. Peter

O Holy Apostle,
because you are the Rock upon
which Almighty God has built his church;
obtain for me I pray you, lively faith,
firm hope and burning love;
complete detachment from myself,
contempt of the world, patience in adversity,
humility in prosperity, recollection in prayer,
purity of heart, a right intention in all my works,
diligence in fulfilling the duties of my state of life,
constancy in my resolutions, resignation to the will of God
and perseverance in the grace of God even unto death;
that so, by means of your intercession and
your glorious merits, I may be made worthy to
appear before the chief and
eternal Shepherd of souls, Jesus Christ,
Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit
lives and reigns for ever.

All Catholics who yearn for holiness should pray this prayer. Remember, St. Peter was so holy, the people of his time prayed that if only his shadow could touch them they would be healed (Acts 5:15). I cannot recall any Saint in the history of the Church having this grace.
