Oath of Fidelity to the Catholic Church
I, ______________________________________________, with firm faith believe and profess each and every thing that is contained in the Symbol of Faith, namely:
The Nicene Creed
I believe in one God,
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
He ascended into heaven
He will come again in glory
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
With firm faith, I also believe everything contained in the Word of God, whether written or handed down in Tradition, which the Church, either by a solemn judgment or by the ordinary and universal Magisterium, sets forth to be believed as divinely revealed.
I also firmly accept and hold each and every thing definitively proposed by the Church regarding teaching on faith and morals.
Moreover, I adhere with religious submission of will and intellect to the teachings which either the Roman Pontiff or the College of Bishops enunciate when they exercise their authentic Magisterium, even if they do not intend to proclaim these teachings by a definitive act.
