Novena to Saint 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 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.
