Christ to St. Peter. In support of this doctrine, Catholics refer
to the several passages in the sacred writings, from which their
belief may be legitimately deduced. In addition to the other
indications, which the Saviour employed, in order to show, that he
had elected Peter to the chief government of his Church, he
honoured this Apostle with an appellation, the most expressive both
