senatori, proconsuls , citizens and soldiers of Romanum, habitants and servi of Rom and noble colleagues and distinguished guests! ”
This is the 3rd public session of the Senate, Anno 906 since-Founding-Rome, In the the beginning.
The 14th year of the regency of our beloved Imperator Stephanus. We open the meeting under the Presidency of the Regent Tybalt Galtier Caproni
Let us remember those who have passed away from us and are now freed from the burden of earthly life to wander peacefully across the fields of Elisium.
But let us also remember those who, with tears and sweat of blood, have to endure a terrible war that a ruler here in Europe has brought over a neighboring country.
“Illustrious son of Saturn and Ops, king of the gods, ruler over Olympus and the god of sky and thunder in myth. Great Protector of the Republic, I plead for Your blessings upon us and be with us.”
O Great Father, protector of Rome and her People. Finally we ask your blessing for your twin cities of Pompeii and Romanum. May they co-exist in continued love and friendship
[ I am embarking on the most difficult journey of my life, and beg you to protect and guide us . "
Whatever my destiny, we will accept. I fear not the winding road before me, for you have laid it down for me. I fear not the darkness of the unknown, for your hand will guide me. I fear not the silence, for your voice speaks inside us
