Angelos invocare,
animam salvare,
corpus mortificare,
virtutes a Deo exorare,
peccata expiare,
paradisum comparare,
infernum evitare,
aeternitatem considerare,
tempus bene applicare,
proximum aedificare,
mundum formidare,
daemones impugnare,
passiones frenare,
mortem semper exspectare,
ad iudicium te praeparare.

  1. English translation of the above prayer…leaves out two important lines in the Latin:

    “beatissimam Virginem et Sanctos venerari,
    Angelos invocare,”

    “the most Blessed Virgin and the Saints to venerate,
    Angels to invoke,”
