O Petre, Petra Ecclesiae: Gloriosamente Regnante!

And long may he reign.

Popes suffer a lot.  There is an old story in Rome that St. Peter had scars running down his cheeks from the countless tears he shed.

Hic ait ad Petrum: "Simon, me diligis, an non?"

Ter cui Petrus ait: "Scis quia temet amo."

"Si me," Christus ait, "Hortor, tu diligis, agnos pasce meos, Petre, cum pietatis ope."
