Ember Saturday in Lent
Let us pray to God to fortify us with His blessing so that, during this Lent, we may never depart from His holy will (Prayer over the People).
Intret oratio mea in conspectu tuo: inclina aurem tuam ad precem meam, Domine. * Domine Deus salutis meae: in die clamavi, et nocte coram te.
Let my prayer come in before Thee: incline Thy ear to my petition, O Lord. * O Lord, the God of my salvation: I have cried in the day and in the night before Thee.
(Psalm 87:3,2 from the Introit of Mass)
Fideles tuos, Deus, benedictio desiderata confirmet: quae eos, et a tua voluntate numquam faciat discrepare, et tuis semper indulgeat beneficiis gratulari.
May the blessing so desired confirm Thy faithful, O God, causing them never to depart from thy will, and ever to rejoice in Thy benefits.
(Prayer over the People)
