Beatae Mariae Virginis de Mercede

Duplex majus ex [C11] Tempora: Feria Quarta in Hebdomadam XIX post Octavam Pentecostem IV. Septembris

Deus, qui per gloriosissimam Filii tui Matrem ad liberandos Christifideles a potestate paganorum nova Ecclesiam tuam prole amplificare dignatus es:
praesta quaesumus; ut, quam pie veneramur tanti operis institutricem,
ejus pariter meritis et intercessione a peccatis omnibus,
et captivitate daemonis liberemur.
Per eumdem Dominum nostrum...

Let us pray
O God, Who didst use the glorious Mother of Thy Son as a mean to ransom Christ's faithful people out of the hands of the unbelievers, by enriching Thy Church with yet another family, grant, we beseech Thee, that we who reverently honour her as the Foundress of that great work, may for her sake and by her prayers, be redeemed from all sin and all bondage unto the evil one.
Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord...
