Chrysologus for Lent XXXIV

Peter forgives sins, and welcomes penitents with complete joy, and firmly maintains that this power has been granted by God to all priests. For after his denial Peter would have lost the glory of being an apostle as well as life, if he had not had a fresh start through penitence. And if Peter returned by means of penitence, who can survive without penitence?

Sermon 84, Section 7.
