Excerpt from An Exposition Upon the Second Epistle General of St. Peter
Whatsoever thy name be, let thy heart be Simon's. It is said to signify, hearing, or obeying: so do thou confess, profess, love thy Master and Maker. Con fess him with thy mouth; profess him with thy life; love him with thy heart. So thou shalt have Simon's omen, though not Simon's nomen. Albeit thou be not called Peter, thou shalt be saved with Peter. Thus shall Christ bless thy name with a good report upon earth, The memory of the just is blessed, Prov. X. 7; with better reward in heaven, by writing it in the book of life, Luke x. 20.
