Valde honorandus est beatus Joannis,
qui supra pectus Domini in coena recubuit:
cui Christus in cruce matrem virginem virgini commendavit.

Greatly to be honoured is blessed John,
who leaned on the breast of the Lord at the Last Supper:
to whom Christ on the cross commended his mother, the virgin of virgins.
