O Spotless Lamb of God!
while Thy judges
proclaim Thee an impostor,
I rise without fear or shame to declare,
in the face of Heaven
Thou art the Christ,
the Son of the Living God,
and that I unreservedly assent to all the dogmas
and to every article of truth
proposed by Thy holy Church to my belief;
but, O Divine Lord,
give me grace
to profess by my actions
as well as my words the faith
that is in me.
Have mercy on all who are involved
in the dreadful night of infidelity;
may the light of Thy grace
shine upon them,
and so penetrate their hearts
that they may embrace the truth,
and be admitted to the communion of Thy holy Church

O God, Who has commanded us
to honour our father and mother,
have compassion in Thy mercy,
on the souls of my father and mother;
forgive them their sins,
and grant that I may see them
in the joy of eternal brightness.
Through Christ our Lord.
