Attolite portas, principes, vestras et elavamini, portae aeternales: et introibit rex gloriae. Quis est ipse rex gloriae? Dominus fortis et potens in proelio. Quis est ipse rex gloriae? Dominus virtutum ipse est rex gloriae. Gloria patri et filio et spiritui sancto: sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper; et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
