LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

Dies Iræ – Day Sixteen

Confutatis maledictis,
Flammis acribus addictis:
Voca me cum benedictis.

When the wicked are confounded,
Doomed to flames of woe unbounded,
Call me, with Thy saints surrounded.

We must recognize that we deserve nothing; and yet we beg that by our faith in His loving mercy we may be saved from eternal woe . . . that our contrition may save us from ultimate wickedness, that God may call us to be numbered with His saints.
