Ut, quod fide recolimus, perpetua dilectione capiamus

Second Wednesday of Pascha


Recalling each year, O Lord,
the mysteries through which our human substance
was restored to the dignity of its origin
and so received the hope of resurrection,
we humbly implore your clemency
that, by means of an unfailing love,
we may lay hold of what we contemplate in faith.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, forever and ever.


Almighty and ever-living God,
who by the ministry of an Angel,
delivered your apostles out of prison
and commanded them to stand in the temple
and announce the words of life;
open our minds and hearts
to the teaching by which it is given us each day
to grow in faith,
to stand firm in hope,
and to believe in the charity
with which you have first loved us.
Through Christ our Lord.
