post longam tandem peregrinationem patrios versus focos

desiderat votis, tutum praeeunti ac prosperum iter sincero
apprecatur animo, suamque memoriam et animi candorem obsignat

Symbolum. Amor Dei omnia vincit. *

* This motto is a paraphrase of the well
known Virgilian verse “omnia vincit amor”
With piety, justice and temperance.
With this and with sincere heart I wish a safe
and fortunate journey to the noble and experienced Mr. Pápai
Páriz, who after a long peregrination finally turns back towards
the hearth of his home – that I myself would also like to do –,
and I recommend myself into his memory and benevolence.
