THE CONFESSION TO BE MADE BY THE EXORCIST
I detest also the crimes which I have committed by evil thoughts, vain and impure meditations, false suspicions, and rash judgments; by the evil consent which I have readily given unto the advice of the wicked, by lust of impure and sensual pleasures ; by my idle words, my lies, and my deceit ; by my false vows in various ways ; and by my continual slander and calumny.
I detest also the crimes which I have committed within ; the treachery and discord which I have incited; my curiosity, greed, false speaking, violence, malediction, murmurs, blasphemies, vain words, insults, dissimulations; my sins against God by the transgression of the ten commandments, by neglect of my duties and obligations, and by want of love towards God and towards my neighbour.
Furthermore, I hate the sins which I have committed in all my senses, by sight, by hearing, by taste, by smell, and by touch, in every way that human weakness can offend the Creator; by my carnal thoughts, deeds, and meditations.
In which I humbly confess that I have sinned, and recognise myself as being in the sight of God the most criminal of all men.
I accuse myself before Thee, 0 God, and I adore Thee with all humility. O ye, Holy Angels, and ye, Children of God, in your presence I publish my sins, so that mine Enemy may have no advantage over me, and may not be able to reproach me at the last day, that he may not be able to say that I have concealed my sins, and that I be not then accused in the presence of the Lord; but, on the contrary, that on my account there may be joy in Heaven, as over the just who have confessed their sins in thy presence.
O Most Mighty and All Powerful Father, grant through Thine un bounded Mercy that I may both see and know all the Spirits which I invoke, so that by their means I may see my will and desire accomplished, by Thy Sovereign grandeur, and by Thine Ineffable and Eternal Glory, Thou Who art and Who wilt be for ever the Pure and Ineffable Father of All.
The Confession having been finished with great humility, and with the inward feeling of the heart, the Master will recite the following prayer:
O Lord All Powerful, Eternal God and Father of all Creatures, shed upon me the Divine Influence of Thy Mercy, for I am Thy Creature. I beseech Thee to defend me from mine Enemies, and to confirm in me true and steadfast faith.
0 Lord, I commit my Body and my Soul unto Thee, seeing I put my trust in none beside Thee ; it is on Thee alone that I rely; 0 Lord my God aid me ; 0 Lord hear me in the day and hour wherein I shall invoke Thee. I pray Thee by Thy- Mercy- not to put me in oblivion, nor to remove me from Thee. 0 Lord be Thou my succour, Thou Who art the God o my salvation. O Lord make me a new heart according unto Thy loving kindness. These, O Lord, are the gifts which I await from Thee, O my God and my Master, Thou Who livest and reignest unto the Ages of the Ages. Amen.
O Lord God the All Powerful One, Who hast formed unto Thyself great and ineffable Wisdom, and Co-eternal with Thyself before the countless Ages ; Thou Who in the Birth of Time hast created the Heavens and the Earth, the Sea, and things that they contain; Thou Who has vivified all things by the Breath of Thy Mouth, I praise Thee, I bless Thee I adore Thee, and I glorify Thee. Be Thou propitious unto me who an but a miserable sinner, and despise me not; save me and succour me even me the work of Thine hands. I conjure and entreat Thee by Thy Holy Name to banish from my Spirit the darkness of Ignorance, and to enlighten me with the Fire of Thy Wisdom ; take away from me all evil desires, and let not my Speech be as that of the foolish. O Thou, God the Living One, Whose Glory, Honour, and Kingdom shall extend unto the Ages of the Ages. Amen.
