The Roman Catholic Promise of Faith and Obedience:
I believe that the teaching of the Holy Catholic Church is God's teaching, without exception.
I believe that the Pope
is the supreme teacher and leader
chosen by God
to have authority over the entire Universal Church
and over each individual Christian.
I promise the Most Holy Trinity,
I promise Jesus Christ suffering on the Cross,
I promise the Blessed Virgin Mary and all the angels and saints,
to always believe and follow the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church,
and to never fail in true obedience to the teaching and leadership of the Pope.
I promise to pray for, defend, and obey the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church.
I acknowledge the holy, Catholic, and apostolic Roman Church
as the mother and teacher of all churches.
And I solemnly promise and swear true obedience to the Roman Pontiff,
vicar of Christ, and successor of blessed Peter the head of the apostles.
I solemnly promise and swear that with God's help
I will firmly retain and confess whole and immaculate to my dying breath
this true Catholic faith,
which I now profess freely and hold truly,
and outside which no one can be saved.
May God have mercy on the Holy Roman Catholic Church
through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
