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.
God, who in a wonderful way created man and still more wondrously renewed him; who were pleased to aid with many healing remedies the various infirmities that beset the human condition; mercifully pour out your holy blessing on this medicine, so that he (she) who takes it may have health in mind and body; through Christ our Lord.
It is sprinkled with holy water.
