 Salt, creature of God, I exorcise you by the
living ~ God, by the ~ true God, by the
holy ~ God, by the God who ordered you to be
poured into the water by Eliseus the propbet so
that its life-giving powers might be restored. I
exorcise you so that you may become a means of
salvation for believers, that YOD may bring health
of soul and body to all who make use of you, and
that you may put to fHght and drive away from the
p~ces where you are sprinkled every apparition,
villainy, and tum of devilish deceit, and every un-
clean spirit, adjured by him who will come to judge
the living and the dead and the world by fire.
:Ql. Amen.

. plore you, in your immeasurable kindness and
love, to bless ~ this salt which you created and
gave to the use of mankind, so that it may become
a source of health for the minds and bodies of all
who make use of it. May it rid whatever it touches
or sprinkles of all unclealiness and protect.it from
every ass~u1t ofeViI spirits. Through our Lord,
Jesus c;.hrlSt, yOUl’ Son, who lives and reigns with
you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, GQd; forever
and ever.

Exorcism of the Water
He. continues:
water, creature of God, I exorcise you in the
name of God the Father ~ almighty, and in

the name of Jesus .~ Christ his Son, our Lord, and
in the power of the Holy ~ Spirit. I exorcise you
so that you may put to flight all the power of the
e~emy, and be able to root out and supplant that
enemy with his apostate angels: through the power
of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will come to judge
the living and the dead and the world by fire.
~. Amen.
Let us pray.
Prayer
God, for the ·salvation of mankind you built
your greatest mysteries on this substance,

water; in your kindness hear our prayers and pour
down the power of your blesslag ~ into this ele-
ment, made ready for many kinds of purifications.
May this, your creature, become an agent of diviDe
grace in the service of your mysteries, to drive
away evil spirits and dispel sickness, so that every-
thing in the homes and other buildings of the faith-
ful that is sprinkled with this water may be rid
of all uncleanness and freed from every harm. Let
no breath of infection, no disease-bearing air re-
main in these places. May the wiles of the lurking
enemy prove of no avail. Let whatever might men-
ace the safety. and peace of those who live here
be put to fHght by the spriDkling of this water, so
that the health obtained by caIUng upon your holy
name may be made secure against all attack,

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your. Son, who
lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy
Spirit, God, forever and ever.

Let us pray. Prayer
 God, Creator unconquerable, invincible King,
Victor ever-glorious, you hold in check the
forces bent on dOminating us, you overcome the
cruelty of the raging enemy, in your power you
beat down the wicked foe.
Humbly and fearfully do we pray to you, 0 Lord,
and we ask you to look with favor on this salt and
water which you created. Shine on it with the light
of your kindness. Sanctify it by the dew of your
love, so that, through the invocation of your holy
name, wherever this water and salt is sprinkled it
may turn aside every attack of the unclean spirit
and dispel the terror of the poisonous serpent. And
wherever we may be, make the Holy Spirit present
to us who now implore your mercy. Through our
Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns
with you in the unity of the same Holy Spirit, God,
forever and ever.
Amen.
