V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who has made heaven and earth.
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.
Let us pray.
O God, You have made man out of nothing in a marvelous way,
and in a still more marvelous way You have "remade" him.
You have been so kind as to come to our aid
with many remedies in the various sicknesses
with which mankind is weighed down.
Kindly hear our prayers
and pour Your holy blessing from heaven upon this medicine,
that he (she, or they) who partakes (partake) of it
may merit to receive health of both mind and body,
through Christ our Lord.
