Ecce nunc tempus acceptabile, ecce nunc dies salutis. In his ergo exhibeamus nos sicut Dei ministros in multa patientia, in vigiliis, in jejuniis, in caritate non ficta.
Convertimini ad me in toto corde vestro, in jejuniis, et in fletu, et in planctu, dicit Dominus.

German.png German translation

Siehe, jetzt ist die angenehme Zeit; siehe, jetzt ist der Tag des Heils! In diesen Tagen empfehlen wir uns daher als Diener Gottes: in viel standhaftem Ausharren, im Wachen, im Fasten, in ungeheuchelter Liebe.
Kehrt um zu mir von ganzem Herzen, mit Fasten, mit Weinen, mit Klagen, spricht der Herr.
                nach Schlachter-Bibel 2000

Behold, now is the accepted time! Behold, now is the day of salvation! In these days we therefore commend ourselves as the ministers of God: in much patience, in watchings, in fastings, by love unfeigned.
Turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning, says the Lord.
                 after King James Bible
