Upon waking, she found a letter (brief) with words to put evil forces to flight. The letter (brief) reads: Latin: Ecce crucem domini, fugite, partes adversae, vicit leo de tribu juda, radix david. Alleluia. English: Behold the cross of the Lord! Begone hostile enemies! The lion of Juda, the offspring of David has triumphed! Alleluia!
