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.
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?
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.
