Ecclesiarum mores et vitam moderare.
Antiochus et Remus concedunt tibi Petre regni solium.
Ethiopes horridos Matthae agnelli vellere.
Thoma Bartholomae Ioannes Philippe Simon Iacobique pariles.
En vos oriens et occidens immo teres mundi circulus habere se patres gaudet
et expectat iudices

English.png English translation

To order the conduct and life of the churches,
Antiochus and Remus concede to you, Peter, the throne of the kingdom.
Fearsome Ethiopians have Matthew in the fleece of a lamb.
Equals of Thomas, Bartholomew, John, Philip, Simon, and James.
Behold, the round world, both east and west, rejoices to have you as fathers
and expects you to act as judges.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
