O almighty and eternal God,
through your only and beloved Son, Jesus Christ,
you will sanctify all your elected and beloved.
Give us grace to follow their faith, hope and charity,
that together with them we may obtain eternal life;
through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one true God, now and forever. Amen.
