Deus qui dedisti legem Moysi in summitate montis Sinai,
et in eodem loco per sanctos Angelos tuos
corpus beatae Catharinae Virginis
et Martyris tuae mirabiliter collocasti:
praesta, quaesumus; ut, ejus meritis et intercessione
ad montem qui Christus est, pervenire valeamus.

O God, who gave the law to Moses on the summit of Mt. Sinai
and by means of your holy angels
miraculously placed there the body of blessed Catherine,
your virgin and martyr:
grant we beseech you, that, by her merits and intercession,
we may be able to come unto the mountain which is Christ.
