The exorcism of salt follows:

Exorcism of Salt

Thou creature of salt, I purge thee of evil by the living X God, by the true X God, by the holy X God, by the God Who ordered thee through Eliseus, the prophet to be cast into the water to cure its unfruitfulness. Be thou a purified salt for the health of believers, giving soundness of body and soul to all who use thee. In whatever place thou art sprinkled, may phantasms and wickedness, and Satan’s cunning be banished. And let every unclean spirit be repulsed by Him Who shall come to judge the living and dead, and the world by fire. R. Amen.

Blessing of Salt

Let us pray.

Almighty, everlasting God! Humbly we implore thy boundless mercy that thou wouldst deign of thy goodness to bless X and sanctify X this creature of salt which Thou hast given for the use of mankind. May all that use it find in it a remedy for soul and body. And let everything which it touches or sprinkles be freed from uncleanness and assault from evil spirits. Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.

The exorcism of water follows:

Exorcism of Water

Thou creature of water, I purge thee of evil in the name of God X the Father almighty, in the name of Jesus X Christ, His Son, our Lord, and in the power of the Holy X Spirit, that thou mayest be water fit to brace us against the envious foe. Mayest thou be empowered to drive him forth and exile him together with his fallen angels by the power of the selfsame Jesus Christ, our Lord Who shall come to judge the living and the dead, and the world by fire. R. Amen.

Blessing of Water

Let us pray.

O God, Who for man’s salvation dost dispense wondrous mysteries with the efficacious sign of water, hearken to our prayer pouring forth thy benediction X upon this element, which we consecrate with manifold purifications. Let this creature serve thee in expelling demons and curing diseases. Whatsoever it sprinkles in the homes of the faithful, be it cleansed and delivered from harm. Let such homes enjoy a spirit of goodness and an air of tranquility, freed from baneful and hidden snares. By the sprinkling of this water, may everything opposed to the safety and repose of them that dwell therein be banished, so that they may possess the well-being they seek in calling upon thy holy name, and be protected from all peril.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.

V. The Lord be with you.

R. And with your spirit.

Let us pray.

Author of invincible strength and king of an unconquerable empire, ever the gloriously Triumphant One! Who restrainest the force of the adversary, Who overcomest the fierceness of the devouring enemy, Who valiantly putteth down hostile influences! Prostrate and fearsome we beseech thee, Lord, consider kindly this creature of salt and water, make it honored, and sanctify it with the dew of thy sweetness. Wherever it is sprinkled in thy name, may devilish infection cease, venomous terror be driven afar. But let the presence of the Holy Spirit be ever with us as we implore thy mercy. Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with thee in unity of the same Holy Spirit, God, eternally.

R. Amen.
