For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.
Read Chapter 26
Caesarius of Arles

Peter had once perished and at the prompting of the devil through the lips of a servant of the high priest had destroyed the consecration of his apostolic rank. But when the Lord looked at him, he was lifted up at once.
