Over all and each of these things now therefore, as far as thou mayest, sigh and be sorry from thy heart; and, as true
contrition demandeth, much more so than over any temporal and punishable wrong. Clearly and with deep sorrow confess them
and be ashamed of them. Study closely how to make satisfaction for them, and to have true amendment. For the rest, keep a
guard over thyself in all things; be fearful before God and thankful to Him. Be humble, patient, of good report, chaste and
sober. Do some bodily mortifications, be discreet and silent, behaving thyself in a grave, profitable and worthy manner. Go
forward in all virtues and according to the demands of thy calling, so be thou in word and deed, to the glory of God Almighty,
who is high over all and blessed for ever. Amen.
The end of the exercise of the purgative way.
