to be worn in honor of our Lord Jesus Christ
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 willed, in redeeming your servant, that your Son should be bound by impious hands, we beg you to bless this cincture; and grant that your servant, who is to wear it as a reminder of bodily mortification, may always venerate the bonds of our Lord Jesus Christ, and may acknowledge that he (she) is bound to your service; through Christ our Lord.
It is sprinkled with holy water.
