Sign of the Cross

I le suafa o le Tama, ma le Alo, ma le Agaga Pa’ia.  Amene.

Gloria:

O le vi’iga i le Atua i mea aupitoaluga,

ma le filemu i ona tagata i le lalolagi,

le Alii Atua,

le tupu aoao, le Atua mamana ma le Tamä,

matou te ifo ia te oe,

matou te faafetai ia te oe,

matou te vivi’i ia te oe ma lou mamalu.

Le Alii e Iesu Keriso, le alo to’atasi o le Tamä,

le Alii Atua, le Tama’i-mamoe a le Atua,

ua e ave’esea agasala a le lalolagi:

alofa mai ia te i matou;

ua e afio i le a’ao taumatau o le Tamä:

ia e talia la matou tatalo.

Auä ua na’o oe lava o le Tasi Paia,

ua na o oe lava le Alii,

ua na’o oe lava le Silisili’ese, Iesu Keriso,

faatasi ma le Agaga Paia,

i le mamalu o le Atua le Tamä. Amene.
