Ad Temoriam hodie potentiam praepolentem invoco Trinitatis

Apud Temoriam hodie virtutem Nativitatis Christi cum eia eius baptismi

Apud Temoriam hodie virtutem amoris Seraphim in obsequio angelorum.

I bind to myself today the great power of an invocation to the Trinity

I bind to myself today the power of the incarnation of Christ

I bind to myself today the power of Seraphim’s love and the obedience of the angels.


Inspirat omnia, vivificat omnia, 

Superat omnia, suffulcit omnia

He inspires all things, He makes all things grow

He is above all things, He supports all things.


Críst limm, Críst reum, Críst im degaid, Críst in-dium, Críst ísum, 

Críst uasum, Críst desum, Críst tuathum

Críst i cridiu cech duini immumrorda, Críst i ngin cech oín rodom-labrathar, 

Críst i cech rusc nonom-dercathar, Críst i cech cluais rodom-chloathar.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, 

Christ above me, Christ at my right, Christ at my left, 

Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks to me, 

Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
