Omnipotens sempiterne Deus
Qui hujus diei venerandam
Sanctamque laetitiam in beati Apostoli tui
Bartholomaei festivitate tribuisti:
Da Ecclesiae tuae quae sumus
Et amare quod credidit
Et praedicare quod docuit
Per Christum Dominum nostrum.

O Almighty and everlasting God,
Who hast given unto us this day to be a day
worshipful, and holy, and joyful,
because of the feast of Thy blessed Apostle Bartholomew:
grant, we beseech Thee, unto Thy Church
both to love that which he believed,
and to preach that which he taught.
Through Christ, Our Lord.
