Fratres, sobrii estote et vigilate,
quia adversarius vester, diabolus
tamquam leo rugiens circuit quaerens quem devoret,
cui resistite fortes in fide.

Brethren, be sober, be vigilant,
because your adversary the devil
as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
Whom Resist, steadfast in the Faith.
