“Ipse venena bibas.”

Vade Retro Satana. Numquam suade mihi vana. Sunt mala quae libas. Ipse venena bibas. Crux sacra sit mihi lux. Non draco sit mihi dux.

(Begone Satan! Suggest not vain things to me. Evil is the cup you offer. Drink the poison yourself. May the Holy Cross be my light. Let not the dragon be my guide.) –

– from the Roman rite of exorcism
