De lamentatione Jeremiae prophetae.
Juxta est dies Domini et velox nimis.
Rogate quae ad pacem sunt, Jerusalem
et ecclesiam jam dolentem confortate,
jam errantem informate,
jam divisam integrate,
naufragantem ad portem reducite,
ne fiat illud schisma magnum
quod praeambulum erit Antechristi.

In cujus adventum de ecclesia
verificabitur illud Jeremiae prophetae:
omnes portae ejus destructae
sacerdotes ejus gementes,
virgines ejus squalidae
et ipsa oppressa amaritudine.
Tunc Petri navicula schismatico turbine diutius agitata
dissipatur in proximo submergenda.
