The Clementine Homilies by Unknown
When I had thus spoken, Peter said: |I give thanks to God, both for your salvation and for my satisfaction. For I am truly pleased to know that you apprehend what is the greatness of prophecy. Since, then, as you say, if I myself should ever wish -- which God forbid -- to transfer you to another doctrine, I shall not be able to persuade you, begin from to-morrow to attend upon me in the discussions with the adversaries. And to-morrow I have one with Simon Magus.| And having spoken thus, and he himself having partaken of food in private, he ordered me also to partake; and having blessed the food, and having given thanks after being satisfied, and having giving me an account of this matter, he went on to say: |May God grant you in all things to be made like unto me, and having been baptized, to partake of the same table with me.| And having thus spoken, he enjoined me to go to rest; for now indeed my bodily nature demanded sleep.
