Sebastiane, decus perenne caeli, audi vota precesque supplicantum, nec audi modo sed benignus illa exaudi quam potes, deorum rectore atque hominum tibi annuente. Surgentem reprime et repelle pestem, ne vis serpat et opprimat caducos mortales. Satis est suo perire fato omnes. Violenta mors facescat tuis auspiciis tuoque ductu.

Sebastian, eternal glory of Heaven, hear the vows and prayers of those supplicating – and not only hear, but, benevolent one, heed them as you can, the King of gods and men having smiled upon you. Check and repel the growing pestilence, so that its power may not grow and crush stricken mortals. It is enough that all men pass away to their own fate. May the violent death be under your auspices and your command.
