GRATIAS tibi agimus, clementissime Dominator, Redemptor animarum nostrarum, quoniam et praesenti hac die caelestibus et immortalibus mysteriis nos dignos fecisti. Tu dirige viam nostram; serva nos in timore tuo; tuere vitam nostram; gressus nostros firma orationibus et intercessionibus sanctae et gloriosae Dei Genetricis et semper Virginis Mariae. Exaltare super caelos, Deus, et super omnem terram gloria tua nunc et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen. WE give Thee thanks, O most merciful Lord and Redeemer of our souls, for this day Thou hast made us worthy by means of these immortal and heavenly mysteries. Direct our way; keep us in fear of Thee; guard our lives; and make our steps firm through the prayers and intercessions of the glorious and holy Mother of God and ever-Virgin Mary. Be exalted above the heavens, O God, and above all the earth, Thy glory, now and forever and ever. Amen.
