Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter

“The Chair of Saint Peter confirms that “the universal Church, which in this world is shaken by various temptations that come upon it like torrents of rain, floods, and tempests, does not fail because it is founded upon a rock, from which Peter received his name…for the Rock was Christ (1 Cor 10:4) and on this foundation was Peter himself also built.” ~Saint Augustine

Grant, we pray, almighty God, that no tempests may disturb us, for you have set us fast on the rock of the Apostle Peter’s confession of faith. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
