Latin Version

P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.

All: Who made heaven and earth.

P: The Lord be with you.

All: May He also be with you.

Let us pray.

Lord, we humbly appeal to your kindness, asking that you sanctify + this fountain of water with a blessing from on high, thus making it a wholesome water for our daily use. May it please you to keep it pure and free of every diabolical defilement, so that all who draw water from it or drink of it may delight in its strengthening and health-giving quality, and give thanks to you, the Lord and Savior of all; through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.

It is sprinkled with holy water.
