Lauds for the Vigil

Crastina die delebitur iniquitas terrae: et regnabit super nos Salvator mundi

______________

Speaking of the washing away of sins, today is the anniversary date of my own baptism.  It hasn't been a smooth road, but I pray for the grace to persevere in that same faith given to me that day:


Priest: N., quid petis ab Ecclesia Dei?            Sponsor/Catechumen: Fidem.

Priest: Fides, quid tibi præstat?                    
Sponsor/Catechumen: Vitam æternam.

Priest: Si igitur vis ad vitam ingredi, serva mandata. Diligis Dominum Deum tuum ex toto corde tuo, et ex tota anima tua, et ex tota mente tua, et proximum tuum sicut teipsum.

Priest: N., abrenuntias Satanæ?          
Sponsor/Catechumen: Abrenuntio.

Priest: Et omnibus operibus eius?      
Sponsor/Catechumen: Abrenuntio.

Priest: Et omnibus pompis eius?
Sponsor/Catechumen: Abrenuntio.
