PETER, an Apoftle of Jesus Chrift,

to the strangers dispersed throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father unto the sanctification of the spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Chrift: may grace

be increased unto you. Blessed be God, who is also the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who, according to his great mercy, hath regenerated us to a lively hope, by the resurrection of Jesus Chrift from the dead, to an inheritance that is incorruptible, undefiled, and which cannot fade away, referved in heaven for you, who, by the power of Goj, are preserved thro' faith, for the salvation got ready to be revealed in the last time. For which you will rejoice, though now, for a little while, you muft be afflicted with many trials; that the trial of your faith, more valuable than gold, which is tried by the fire, may turn out to your praise, glory, and honour, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

GOSPEL. Matt. xvi. 13, 19. AT that time : Jefus came into the territories of

Cæfarea Philippi, and asked his disciples, say, ing: Whom do the people say the Son of Man is? And they answered: Some say he is John the Baptif, others that he is Elias, others Jeremias, or fome one of the Prophets. Jesus faith to them: But whom do you say that I am ? Simon Peter anfwering, said: Thou art the Chrift, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answering, said to him : Blessed art thou Simon Barjona ; 'for Aesh and blood hath not revealed this to thee, but my Father, who is in heaven. And I say to thee: Thou art Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatfoever thou fhalt loofe on earth, shall be loosed in heaven. CREDO.
