X. When my soul shall bid adieu to the world and shall leave my body
lifeless, pale and cold, receive this separation as a homage
which I willingly pay to Thy Divine Majesty, and in that last
moment of my mortal life, Merciful Jesus, have mercy on me!
XI. When at length my soul, admitted to Thy Presence, shall first
behold the splendor of Thy Divine Majesty, reject me not but
receive me into Thy bosom, where I may forever sing Thy
praises; and in that moment when eternity shall begin for me,
Merciful Jesus, have mercy on me!
XII. O God, who has doomed all men to die but has concealed from
them the moment of their death, grant that I may pass my days
in the practice of holiness and justice, so that I may deserve to
quit this world in the peace of a good conscience and in the
embrace of Thy Love, through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Oh, my Lord and Savior, support me in that hour in the strong arms
of Thy Sacraments and by the fresh fragrance of Thy consolations.
Let the absolving words be said over me, and the holy oil sign
and seal me, and Thy own Body be my food and Thy Blood my
sprinkling, and let my sweet Mother, Mary, breathe on me, and my
Angel whisper peace to me, and my Glorious Saints smile upon
me; that in them all and, through them all, I may receive the gift
of perseverance, and die as I desire to live, in Thy Faith, in Thy
Church, in Thy service, and in Thy Love. Amen.
