Latin.png Latin text

Sint lumbi vestri praecincti,
et lucernae ardentes in manibus vestris;
et vos similes hominibus exspectantibus dominum suum,
quando revertatur a nuptiis.

Vigilate ergo quia nescitis qua hora dominus vester venturus sit.

Let your loins be girt,
and lamps burning in your hands;
and you yourselves like to men who wait for their lord,
when he shall return from the wedding. (Luke 12:35-36, Douay-Rheims)

Watch ye therefore, because ye know not what hour your Lord will come.
(Matt. 24:42, Douay-Rheims)
