Approbation of the new rites for ordination of Deacons, Priests, and Bishops

Denique in Ordinatione Episcopi, materia est impositio manuum quae ab Episcopis consecrantibus, vel saltem a Consecratore principali, fit silentio super caput Electi ante precationem consecratoriam; forma autem constat verbis eiusdem precationis consecratoriae, quorum haec ad naturam rei pertinent, atque adeo ut actus valeat exiguntur: 

Et nunc effunde super hunc Electum eam virtutem, quae a te est, Spiritum principalem, quem dedisti dilecto Filio Tuo Iesu Christo, quem Ipse donavit sanctis Apostolis, qui constituerunt Ecclesiam per singula loca, ut sanctuarium tuum, in gloriam et laudem indeficientem nominis tui.

Finally, in the ordination of a bishop, the matter is the laying of hands by the consecrating Bishops, or at least by the principal Consecrator, done in silence over the head of the Elect before the consecratory prayer; the form consists of the words of the consecratory prayer, of which the following belong to the essence, and are therefore required for validity.

So now pour out upon this chosen one that power which is from you, the governing Spirit whom you gave to your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, given by the Same to the holy Apostles, who founded the Church in each place, to be your sanctuary in the unceasing glory and praise of your name.
