Almighty God, which1 hast knit together thine elect
in one communion and fellowship in the mystical body of thy Son Christ our Lord:
grant us grace so to follow thy holy2 saints in all virtuous and godly3 living,
that we may come to those unspeakable joys
which thou hast prepared for them that unfeignedly love thee,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
