keep your household, the Church,
in continual godliness,
that through your protection
we may be free from all adversities
and devoutly given to serve you in good works
to the glory of your name;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
