Gratiarum actio pro suscepto Baptismi Sacramento
Act of Thanksgiving for Receiving the Sacrament of Baptism
Trinitas

O SANCTISSIMA Trinitas: Pater, Fili, et Spiritus Sancte! gratias tibi ago ex intimo corde, quod me ex christianis parentibus nasci et ad sacri baptismatis gratiam perducere voluisti. Ecce denuo spondeo et profiteor, quae ad sacrum fontem patrini nomine meo spoponderunt et professi sunt. Abrenuntio ergo Satanae et omnibus operibus eius et omnibus pompis eius. Credo in te Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, creatorem caeli et terrae; credo in te Iesum Christum, Filium Dei unicum, Dominum nostrum; credo in te Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum et vivificantem. Credo in unam sanctam ecclesiam catholicam, Sanctorum communionem, remissionem peccatorum, carnis resurrectionem, vitam aeternam. O MOST HOLY Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I thank Thee from the deep in my heart that Thou willed me to be born of Christian parents and led to the grace of holy Baptism. See that I again pledge and profess those things which my godparents pledged and professed in my name at the sacred font. I renounce, therefore, Satan and all his works and all his pomps. I believe in Thee God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth; I believe in Thee, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, our Lord; I believe in Thee, Holy Spirit, Lord and giver of life. I believe in one holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the remission of sins, the resurrection of the body and eternal life.
Confirma nunc, o Beata Trinitas, quod in sacro baptismo in me operata es, ut per hoc Sacramentum divinae naturae effectus consors, concupiscentiae corruptionem fugiam et aeternae consequar incorruptionis praemia. Qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum. Amen. Strengthen now, o Blessed Trinity, that which Thou hast worked in me in sacred Baptism, that through this Sacrament of divine nature I may flee from the corruption of cupidity and pursue the reward of eternal incorruption. Thou who livest and reignest forever. Amen
