Lectio Epistolae Beati Petri Apostoli – Lesson from the Epistle of Blessed Peter the Apostle
1 Peter 5 : 6-11
Carissimi : Humiliamini sub potenti manu Dei, ut vos exaltet in tempore visitationis : omnem sollicitudinem vestram projicientes in eum, quoniam ipsi cura est de vobis. Sobrii estote et vigilate : quia adversarius vester diabolus tamquam leo rugiens circuit, quaerens, quem devoret : cui resistite fortes in fide : scientes eandem passionem ei, quae in mundo est, vestrae fraternitati fieri, Deus autem omnes gratiae, qui vocavit nos in aeternam suam gloriam in Christo Jesu, modicum passos ipse perficiet, confirmabit solidabitque.
Ipsi gloria et imperium in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
Dearly beloved, may you be humbled under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in the time of visitation, casting all your care upon Him, for He had cared for you. Be sober and watch, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goes about seeking whom he may devour. Who may resist You, those strong in faith, knowing that the same affliction befalls your brethren who are in the world. But the God of all grace, Who had called us unto His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little, will Himself perfect you and confirm you and establish you.
To Him be glory and empire forever and ever. Amen.
