Fetish as Sacred

In DUNE (by Frank Herbert  -the 1980’s version of the movie) there is a scene where the mentat, who worked for the Baron Harkonan, recites a special mantra as he drinks his sapho:
“It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, the stains become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.”
This small ritual is clearly intended to mark his action of drinking this Safu juice as a sacred, important thing. It reminds him that what he is doing is rather special–enough so that it is ceremonialized.
It also emphasizes to himself that he is a mentat–a very special person with a very special title, and very special capabilities.
What similar mantra should a  RubberNunk repeat as he or she puts on her  more sacred rubber garments, such as a ceremonial glove. The glove, itself, is a symbol of his fetish which he intends to make special or sacred.
(orig) “rubber fetish is a gift to those who will regard it as so.”
Possible mantra:
“with this glove I reinforce my choice to regard my fetish as a gift rather than a curse. Through my fetish I choose to become stronger. Through my fetish I choose to seek out the meaning of my life to continually transcend today what I was yesterday.”
