To Bless Plants and To Purify Water for All Personal Uses
From the Cipriano
Let there be a firmament in the middle of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters, that which is above is like that which is below and that which is below is like that which is above for the accomplishment of the One Thing. The Sun is its father, the Moon is its mother and the Winds carried it in its womb, it ascends from earth to the heaven and again it descends to the earth. It is purified! I exorcise you, creature of water, that you may be for me of the living God in my works and a font of life and the ablution of sins. May ashes be returned to the font of living water and may the earth be fruitful and sprout forth life by the three names that are Netzach, Hod, and Yesod, in the beginning as in the end, by Alpha and Omega, who is are in Spirit Azoth.
And since there are so many cases where this relic preserves one from the Devil and his charms, blessed is he who keeps the four Holy Gospels. May Luke, John, Mark, and Matthew cleanse us of all evil, to enjoy the pleasure of the celestial homeland as we wish.
The Gospel of Saint Luke
And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon’s house. And Simon’s wife’s mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her. And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them. Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.
The Gospel of Saint Matthew
Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward hungered. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Then the devil takes him up into the holy city, and sets him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil takes him up into an exceeding high mountain, and shows him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaves him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
The Gospel of Saint John
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we bheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
The Gospel of Saint Mark
Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
