Singularly devoted to our Blessed Lady,
Promoter of her honor,

Reviver of ecclesiastical discipline,
Rose of patience,
Most ardent for the salvation of souls,

Man of truly apostolic heart,
Poor in the midst of riches,
Rich in unspotted life,
Burning with zeal for perishing souls,

Herald of heavenly things,
Salt of the earth,
Who didst water the earth with thy precious blood,
Shining in the choir of virgins,

That at the hour of death we may be received into heaven with thee, (pray for us.)
Be merciful unto us, O Lord, (and pardon us.)
Be merciful unto us, O Lord, (and graciously hear us.)

From all sin and evil,
From the snares of the devil,
From eternal death,
By the merits of our Holy Father, Saint Dominic,
By his ardent love,
By his indefatigable zeal,
By his extraordinary labors,
By his inexpressible penances,
By his voluntary poverty,
By his perpetual chastity,
By his perfect obedience,
By his profound humility,
By his rare constinancy,
By all his other virtues,





Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, (spare us, O Lord.)
Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, (graciously hear us O Lord.)
Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, (have mercy on us.)

Pray for us, O holy Father, Dominic. (That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.)

Grant, we beseech Thee, O Almighty God, that we who are weighed down by the burden of our sins may be relieved by the patronage of St. Dominic, Thy Confessor, our Father. Through Christ our Lord, (Amen.)
