O God, my Father, to show my love for thee, to make reparation to thy wounded honour, to obtain the salvation of souls, I firmly propose to take this day neither wine nor beer, nor any intoxicating drink.
I offer thee this act of mortification, in union with the sacrifice of thy Son Jesus Christ, Who daily offers Himself a Victim on the altar for thy greater glory. Amen.
[300 days’ Indulgence. – Pius X., Br., March 29th, 1904.]
