Memento, tuum esse hodie...

Remember, thou hast this day:

God to glorify,
Jesus to imitate,
The Blessed Virgin and the Saints to venerate,
The Angels to invoke,
A soul to save,
A body to mortify,
Sins to expiate,
Virtues to acquire,
Hell to avoid,
Heaven to gain,
Eternity to prepare for,
Time to profit by,
Neighbours to edify,
The world to despise,
Devils to combat,
Passions to subdue,
Modernists to admonish,
Silly hymnals and missalettes to burn,
Gregorian Chant to sing,
Liturgical mess to condemn,
Death perhaps to suffer,
And Judgment to undergo.
