to enlighten my mind and to touch my heart, that by means of true faith, hope and charity, I may live and die in the true religion of Jesus Christ. I confidently believe that; as there is but one God, there can be but one faith, one religion, one only path to salvation, and that every other path opposed thereto can lead but to perdition. This path, O my God, I anxiously seek after, that I may follow it, and be saved. Therefore I protest before Thy divine Majesty, and I swear by all Thy divine attributes, that I will follow the religion which Thou shalt reveal to me as the true one, and will abandon, at whatever cost, that wherein I shall have discovered errors and false- hood. I confess that I do not deserve this favor for the greatness of my sins, for which I am truly penitent, seeing they offend a God who is so good, so holy, and so worthy of love ; but what I deserve not, I hope to obtain from Thine infinite mercy : and I beseech Thee to grant it unto me through the merits of that precious blood, which was shed for us sinners, by Thine only Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth, God, world without end. Amen.
