Pledges

Panata ng Isang Taga-Lovinia

Ako ay Taga-Lovinia. Ako ay tapat sa aking tinubuang-bayan. Pinasisigla nito ang lahat ng aking mga pangarap at pagsisikap. Pinoprotektahan ako nito, at tinutulungan akong maging malakas. Bilang kabayaran, magiging magalang ako; Gagawin ko ang mga tungkulin ng mamamayan ng makabayan, masunurin sa batas; Tapat akong maglilingkod sa aking bansa. Ako ay magiging isang tunay na taga-Lovinia sa puso. Sumusumpa ako sa mga panunumpa sa ilalim ng pangalan ng Lovinia.
