Preface Of Virgins And Religious

Father, all-powerful and ever-living God,
we do well always and everywhere
to give You thanks.

Today we honour Your saints who consecrated their lives to Christ
for the sake of the kingdom of heaven.
What love You show us as You recall humanity to its first innocence,
and invite us to taste on earth the gifts of the world to come!

Now, with the saints and all the angels
we praise You for ever:

Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
