Iste est Joannes, qui supra pectus Domini in coena recubuit:
beatus Apostolus, cui revelata sunt secreta caelestia.

Fluenta Evangelii de ipso sacro Dominici pectoris fonte potavit.
Beatus apostolus, cui revelata sunt secreta caelestia.

This is John, who leaned on the breast of the Lord at the Last Supper:
Blessed Apostle, to whom the secrets of heaven have been revealed.

Blessed Apostle, to whom the secrets of heaven have been revealed.
