Confession of Peter: Tu Es Petrus

Tu es Petrus
et super hanc petram
aedificabo ecclesiam meam
et portae inferi
non praevalebunt adversum eam
et tibi dabo claves regni caelorum

You are Peter
and upon this rock
I will build my church
and the doors of hell
shall not prevail against it
and to you I will give the keys
of the kingdom of heaven
