Dominica XV post Pentecosten

Commemoratio: Vigilia S. Barthalomei Apostoli

Ecclesiam tuam Domine miseratio continuata mundet et muniat: et quia sine te non potest salva consistere, tuo semper munere gubernetur.
Per Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum, Filium tuum : qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. R. Amen.

O LORD, we beseech Thee, let Thy continual pity cleanse and defend Thy Church, and because it cannot continue in safety without Thy succour, preserve it evermore by Thy help and goodness.
Through Jesus Christ your Son, Our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.

Meeting Christ in the Liturgy offers a reflection for the Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost.
