Post Communionem for the 1st Week in Ordinary Time

Post Communionem for the 1st Week in Ordinary Time

The Post communionem comes to us by way of the old Mass for Sexagesima and also, if I am not mistaken, the 2nd Sunday of Lent in the older Missal.

POST COMMUNIONEM
Supplices te rogamus, omnipotens Deus,
ut, quos tuis reficis sacramentis,
tibi etiam placitis moribus
dignanter deservire concedas.

This would be a good question for your Latin students. Quaeritur – There are four instances of the ending -is: How are they different/similar?

LITERAL VERSION
Humbly we beseech You, Almighty God,
that You may grant that those whom You refresh with Your sacramental mysteries,
may also serve You worthily
in pleasing moral conduct of life.

One Response to Post Communionem for the 1st Week in Ordinary Time

  1. Henry Edwards says:

    ICEL Post communionem—1st Week in Ordinary Time:

    All-powerful God,
    you renew us with your sacraments.
    Help us to thank you by lives of faithful service.

    Would anyone say ICEL has preserved the meaning without the tone? (Just asking. Not sure I would.)
