Jesus Christ, the King of glory, came in peace.
God was made man.
The Word was made flesh.
Christ was born of the Virgin Mary.
Christ passed through the midst of them in peace.
Christ was crucified.
Christ was buried.
Christ is risen.
Christ ascended into heaven.
Christ conquers, Christ reigns, Christ commands.
From every lightening bolt may Christ defend us.
Jesus is with us.
Our Father - Hail Mary - Glory be
In June 1771, early in his career as a pilgrim recluse, Saint Benedict
Joseph visited Fabriano, Italy, to venerate the relics of Saint Romuald,
the founder of the Camaldolese monks. Being treated with kindness by a
local family, and desiring to thank his benefactors, he wrote out in Latin
this set of aspirations, drawn from, or inspired by Holy Scripture, the
Creeds, the Papal Laudes, and his own piety, exhorting his hosts to pray
in these words for protection against thunder, lightening and earthquake.
Just a few years later, during his lifetime, a devastating earthquake did
strike Fabriano, but the home of this family and the houses immediately
around it stood firm and unharmed. Subsequently, copies of this "blessing"
were printed and distributed at Fabriano.
