Folio 59r

Miscellaneous prayers, mainly to Jesus Christ, continued.

Prayer, In presencia corporis, continued.



The author especially invokes the sacrament of holy communion and asks for Christ's help. He asks for protection against, and delivery from the rule of the devil, the weapons of his enemies, visible and invisible, dangers to the health of his body and his soul, and sudden death, now and in the future.
