Erat Petrus Per S. Pietro

Language: Latin

Erat Petrus dormiens inter militus cintus
catenis et ante ostium custodes.
Ecce lumen refulsit in habitaculum astitit
Angelus percussit Petrus et eccitavit.
"Surge, surge velociter, solve catenas, precimge
tè, calcea tè, circunda tibi vestimentum, sequere mè"
Pulsante eo ostium Ioannis venit puella &
pregaudio intro currens non peruit, pulsabat
Petrus, perseverabat pulsans; respondebant
puellae "in sanis in carcere est Petrus"
(pulsabat Petrus)
Narrabat puella stare Petrum ante ianuam
(pulsabat Petrus) dicebant illi "Angelus eius
est" (pulsabat Petrus, perseverabat pulsans);
aparuerunt, viderunt, obstupuerunt.
Annuens autem Petrus manu ut tacerent.
Nunciavit quod Dominus abduxit eum.
O Petre protector in te sperantium Petre.
Te Petre poscimus ut culpas abluas noxia diluas.
Ecce miserum peccatis de victam de tua liberatione confisam.
Te Petre poscimus ut culpas abluas da pacem
famulis da nobis gloriam per cuncta saecula
