Caechism of the Day

The Lord's Prayer continued

Conclusion

Amen.

What does this mean?

That I should be certain that these petitions are acceptable
to our Father in heaven, and heard;
for He Himself has commanded us so to pray,
and has promised to hear us.
Amen, Amen, that is, Yea, yea, it shall be so.

Conclusio

Amen.

Quae est huius vocabuli significatio?

Amen significat idem quod certe, ut scilicet ego sim certus,
eiusmodi petitiones Patri nostro caelesti esse acceptas atque ab eo
exauditas, quia ipse nobis mandavit, ut ad
hunc modum oremus, promisitque se nos exauditurum esse.
Amen, Amen, id est, vere, certe, haec ita fient.
