We beseech thee, hear us.

We sinners, Beseech thee, hear us.
That we may love thee, the Lord our God, with all our

heart, with all our soul, and with all our mind, That we may adore thee alone, and serve thee in holiness

and righteousness all the days of our lives, That we may never take thy holy name in vain, That we may sanctify the feasts and holy days of the Church, That we may give due honour and obedience to our parents

and lawful superiors, That we may not injure our neighbour in body, soul, or

peace of mind, That we may crucify the flesh, with its vices and concupis

cences, and be ever clean of heart, That we may not do to others what we would not have

others do to us, That we may not covet our neighbour's goods, That thou wouldst make all grace abound in us, That we may present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy and

acceptable to thee, That thou wouldst bring us to the kingdom which thou

hast prepared for us from the foundation of the world,
Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,
Spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,
Graciously hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,
Have mercy on us.
Glory be to the Father, &c.
As it was in the beginning, &c.

Let us pray. O adorable Lord, in Three distinct and equal Persons One God, who requirest the homage of our reason by the belief of mysteries which are above our understanding, and that of our will by the observance of precepts which are mortifying to our natural inclinations; give us thy grace to perform this twofold duty, and grant that we may never oppose our uncertain reasoning to thy infallible truth, nor deliberately transgress thy most high and holy commands. Thus continuing until death in entire subjection to thee, may we come at last to the clear and perfect enjoyment of thee. Who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.
