O God, who through the mouth of Christ, Thy Son, hast declared that Thou sowest the good seed and cultivate the choicest branches, which are found in all the children of Thy Church; grant to Thy faithful who are to Thee as a vineyard and a harvest-field, that having rooted out the filth of all thorns and briars, we may bring forth worthy fruit in abundance.
Deus incommutabilis virtus et lumen aeternum, respice propitius ad totius Ecclesiae tuae corpus, et opus salutis humanae, perpetuae dispositionis effectu tranquillus operare, ut totius mundus experiatur, et videat deiecta erigi, inveterata renovari, et per ipsum redire omnia in integrum, a quo sumpsere principium. O God, who art power unchangeable and light eternal, look graciously upon the body of all Thy Church, and by Thy perpetual providence perform with tranquility the work of human salvation. So that the whole world may experience and see that which is fallen is raised up, that which was old is made new, and that all things are made whole again through Him from whom they received their beginning.
Deus celsitudo humilium, et fortitudo rectorum, qui per unigenitum Filium tuum ita erudire mundum dignatus es, ut omnis illius actio, fieret nostra instructio, excita in nobis spiritus tui fervorem, ut quod ille verbo et exemplo salubriter docuit, nos efficaciter imitari valeamus. O God, Thou art the exaltation of the lowly and fortitude of the righteous. Thou, who through Thine only-begotten Son so deigned to instruct the world such that every action of His was for our instruction, stir up in us the fervor of Thy spirit, that what He taught by word and example, we may be able to imitate.
Deus, qui fidelium mentes unius efficis voluntatis, da nobis id amare, quod praecipis, id desiderare, quod promittis, ut inter mundanas varietates ibi nostra fixa sint corda, ubi vera sunt gaudia. O God, Thou who makest the faithful to be of one mind and will, grant that we may love what Thou dost command and desire what Thou dost promise; that amid the changing times of this world, our hearts may be set where there is true joy.
Deus, a quo bona cuncta procedunt, largire supplicibus tuis, ut cogitemus te inspirante, quae recta sunt, et te gubernante eadem faciamus. Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum Filium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. O God, from whom all good things come, grant to us Thy supplicants that by Thy inspiration we may think of what is right and under Thy guidance we may do the same. Though our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who with Thee liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.
Amen. Amen.
