INVOCATIONS:
V.  O LORD,OPEN MY LIPS.
R.  AND MY TONGUE SHALL ANNOUNCE THY PRAISE!

V.  O GOD, COME TO MY ASSISTANCE.
R.  O LORD,MAKE HASTE TO HELP ME.

V.  GLORY BE TO THE FATHER AND TO THE SON AND TO THE HOLY GHOST.

PREPARATORY ACT:
"O, MOST MERCIFUL GOD, UNITY IN ESSENCE AND TRINITY IN PERSONS,
BEHOLD HERE ONE OF THY HUMBLE CREATURES, WHO RECOGNIZES
WITHIN ITSELF THE VENERABLE IMAGE OF THY MOST HOLY TRINITY.
I CONFESS THAT I HAVE NOT FULFILLED MY OBLIGATIONS WITH THE
HONOUR TO WHICH THIS DIVINE LIKENESS OBLIGES ME. I HAVE SINNED,
MY GOD, BUT I NEVER DENIED THY TRINITY. RATHER I HAVE FIRMLY
BELIEVED IN THE FATHER, IN THE SON AND IN THE HOLY GHOST; THAT
THE FATHER HAS NO BEGINNING; THAT THE SON IS BEGOTTEN OF THE
FATHER, WITH WHOM HE IS CONSUBSTANTIAL AND THAT THE HOLY
GHOST IS THE OBJECT OF THE RECIPROCAL LOVE OF THE FATHER AND
SON, FROM WHOM HE PROCEEDS AND WITH WHOM HE IS
CONSUBSTANTIAL; THAT THE FATHER IS NOT SUPERIOR TO THE SON
NOR ARE THEY SUPERIOR TO THE HOLY GHOST.  I ADORE THE FATHER
AS GOD, THE SON AS GOD AND THE HOLY GHOST AS GOD;
NEVERTHELESS IN THE THREE I BELIEVE AND ADORE ONLY A SINGLE
GOD.   I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS MYSTERY, O LORD, BUT MY
UNDERSTANDING IS FASCINATED BY VIRTUE OF FAITH FOR THY
GREATER GLORY AND MY MERIT.  I OFFER THEE THESE MOST
PROFOUND SENTIMENTS OF PIETY, OF REVERANCE AND LOVE, AS MOST
PLEASING SUPPLICATIONS TO THY SANCTITY, SO THAT THROUGH THEM
THOU MAYEST FORGIVE SO MANY OFFENCES COMMITTED BY ME
AGAINST THY UNCREATED MAJESTY.  O, MOST BLESSED TRINITY!  THE
MISERABLE TRINITY OF MY FACULTIES SIGHS FOR THEE; MY MEMORY,
TAINTED BY WEAKNESS; MY UNDERSTANDING, INFECTED BY
IGNORANCE; MY WILL, PERVERTED BY THE INCLINATION TO EVIL.
HEAL ME, SANCTIFY ME AND GIVE ME HELP SO I MAY NEVER LACK THE
INTENTIONS WITH WHICH THOU HAST DEIGNED TO INSPIRE ME; FOR
I PROMISE TO DEDICATE MYSELF FROM NOW ON, TO UPHOLDING THE
DIGNITY OF THE PRACTICES THAT CORRESPOND TO THY OWN
CHARACTER, WITH WHICH THOU HAST SEALED ME; TO APPRECIATE IT
AS FULLY AS I POSSIBLY CAN WITH THY GRACE AND TO AVAIL MYSELF
OF THY GRACE TO PERSEVERE IN DEVOTION AND IN THE MYSTERY OF
THY MOST AUGUST TRINITY, IN WHOM I HOPE TO FIND MERCY,
COMPASSION AND BENEVOLENCE FOREVER! AMEN.
