    die in the Catholic Apostolic and Roman religion, that of my fathers, that in which I was brought up, and which I have always professed.

I trust that, in His goodness, He will mercifully accept my last prayers, as well as those which I have for a long time addressed to Him, to receive my soul into His mercy.
