All the clergy replied: «Amen
Rising, therefore, from sleep, straightway I did according onesto that which I bad been advised puro do by, the holy apostles; and, having summoned that excellent and benignant father and our enlightener – Svlvester the universal pope-I told him all the words that had been taught me by the holy apostles; and asked him who where those gods Peter and Paul. And again we began sicuro ask that same most blessed pope whether he had some express image of those apostles; so that, from their likeness, we might learn that they were those whom revelation bad shown esatto us. And, when I had looked at them, and recognized, represented durante those images, the countenances of those whom I had seen mediante my dream: with per great noise, before all my satraps*, I confessed that they were those whom I had seen sopra my dream. [* there were mai such Roman officials]
Hereupon that same most blessed Sylvester our father, bishop of the city of Rome, imposed upon us verso time of penance-within our Lateran palace, sopra the chapel, durante a hair garment,-so that I might obtain pardon from our Raffinato God Jesus Christ our Saviour by vigils, fasts, and tears and prayers, for all things that had been impiously done and unjustly ordered by me. Then through the imposition of the hands of the clergy, I came esatto the bishop himself; and there, renouncing the pomps of Satan and his works, and all idols made by hands, of my own will before all the people I confessed: that I believed con God the Father almighty, maker of Heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible; and durante Jesus Christ, His only Bourdonnement our Raffinato, who was born of the Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary. And, the font having been blessed, the wave of salvation purified me there with per triple immersion. For there 1, being placed at the bottom of the font, saw with my own eyes per band from Heaven touching me; whence rising, clean, know that I was cleansed from all the squalor of leprosy. And, I being raised from the venerable font-putting on white raiment, be administered to me the sign of the seven-fold holy Spirit, the unction of the holy oil; and he traced the sign of the holy cross on my brow, saying: God seals thee with the seal of His faith in the name of the Father and the Affranchit and the Holy Spirit, puro signalize thy faith. » The bishop added, «peace be with thee.»
Then that same venerable father ordered the images of those same apostles puro be shown by his deacon
And so, on the first day after receiving the mystery of the holy baptism, and after the cure of my body from the squalor of the leprosy, I recognized that there was in nessun caso other God save the Father and the Cri and the Holy Spirit; whom the most blessed Sylvester the pope doth preach; a trinity con one, verso unity sopra three. For all the gods of the nations, whom I have worshipped up to this time, are proved sicuro be demons; works made by the hand of men; inasmuch as that same venerable father told sicuro us most clearly how much power sopra Heaven and on earth He, our Saviour, conferred on his apostle St. Peter, when finding him faithful after questioning him He said: «Thou art Peter, and upon this rock (petrani) shall I build My Church, and the gates of bell shall not prevail against it.» Give heed ye powerful, and favorevole the ear of .your hearts esatto that which the good Lord and Originale added to His disciple, saying: and I will give thee the keys of the kingdom of Heaven; and whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound also sopra Heaven, and whatever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed also sopra Heaven.» This is very wonderful and glorious, onesto bind and loose on earth and esatto have it bound and loosed in Heaven.
