the protector of all who hope in you,
without you nothing is strong and nothing is holy.
Pour out your mercy on us.
Help us as we pass through this life,
and continue in faith to eternal life;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.

Original in Latin:
Protector noster in te sperantium Deus, sine quo nihil est validum nihil sanctum, multiplica super nos misericordiam tuam, ut te rectore, te duce sic transeamus, per bona temporalia, ut non amittamus aeterna. Per Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum filium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus sancti Deus. Per omnia secula seculorum, Amen.
