Full text of the Papal Oath:In the name of the Lord and God, our Savior Jesus Christ, etc. Declaration …, month … I, … by the mercy of God priest and elected, and about to become the humble bishop of the Apostolic See grace of God, I profess to thee, blessed Peter prince of the Apostles, (to whom the Creator and Redeemer of all, the Lord Jesus Christ, has given the keys of the kingdom of heaven to bind and to lose in heaven and on earth, saying: Whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven), and I profess also to thy holy Church, which I received today to govern by thy assistance. I profess to safeguard by all my efforts, up to my life and my blood, this rectitude of the true faith which, having been given by its author, Christ, has been transmitted by thy successors and disciples until my lowliness, and is found in thy holy Church, and I shall suffer patiently, with thy help, the difficulties of times. I profess to safeguard the faith of the mystery of the holy and undivided Trinity, which is one God. I profess to safeguard the faith of the mystery of the dispensation, accomplished according to the flesh, of the only begotten Son of God Our Lord Jesus Christ. I profess to safeguard the faith of all the other dogmas of the Church, as they have been bequeathed in the universal councils, and in the decrees of the most illustrious and apostolic pontiffs, and in the writings of the doctors of the Church. Similarly I profess to safeguard everything which was handed from thee for the preservation of your and our orthodox faith. I profess to keep integrally, to the iota, the holy and universal councils, namely, the council of Nicea, the council of Constantinople, the first council ofEphesus, the council of Chalcedon, and the second council of Constantinople, which was celebrated during the reign of the Emperor Justinian, of pious memory. And I profess to safeguard, thoroughly and wholly, together with the other councils, with the same honor and veneration, the sixth council, which was recently gathered under my apostolic predecessor Agatho, and the emperor Constantine [IV] of pious memory. I profess to preach what they have preached, and to condemn, by mouth and heart, what they have condemned. I yet profess to confirm and keep intact, and to safeguard in the stability of their vigor, as has been established, with great diligence and tenacity, all the decrees of our predecessors, the apostolic pontiffs, whatever they have established and approved in synods. I profess to condemn by a sentence of equal authority whatever or whomever they have condemned or repudiated. I profess to keep inviolate the discipline and rite of the Church as I found it, and as it has been transmitted to me by my predecessors. And I profess to work to keep entirely the things of the Church, and to ensure that they are entirely kept. I profess to change or diminish nothing of the tradition which has been kept by my illustrious predecessors, nor to admit any novelty. On the contrary I profess to fervently safeguard and venerate with all my strengths and efforts what they have transmitted, as their true disciple and follower. I profess to correct anything contrary to canonical discipline; and I profess to safeguard the sacred canons and constitutions of our pontiffs as if they were divine and heavenly commandments, being aware that I shall give you a strict account of all things which I profess, in the divine judgment, as occupying your place, through God’s design, and fulfilling this role, helped by your intercession. I profess that if I should presume to do or allow anything contrary to these, you shall be unpropitious to me in the day of divine judgment. I also beseech thee to grant me help to be careful to keep these things diligently and carefully in this corruptible life, that I may appear blameless in front of the judge of all, Our Lord Jesus Christ, when He shall come to strictly judge on the things which He has entrusted, that He may make me partake the lot of the right, and place among your faithful disciples and successors. I have written this profession with my own hand, as it is contained above and was indicated to me by the notary and archivist. And with a pure mind and a devout conscience, I have sincerely presented by a physical oath this profession to you, blessed Peter, apostle and prince of all the apostles.
