Prayer for a Votive Mass of Thanksgiving from the 1962 Missale Romanum
V. Dominus vobiscum.
R. Et cvm spiritu tuo.
Deus, cujus misericÃƒÂ³rdiæ
non est nÃƒÂºmerus
et bonitÃƒÂ¡tis infinÃƒÂtus est
thesÃƒÂ¡urus: piÃƒÂssimæ majestÃƒÂ¡ti
tuæ pro collÃƒÂ¡tis donis grÃƒÂ¡tias
ÃƒÂ¡gimus, tuam semper clemÃƒÂ©ntiam
exorÃƒÂ¡ntes; ut, qui petÃƒÂ©ntibus
postulÃƒÂ¡ta concÃƒÂ©dis, eÃƒÂ³sdem non
dÃƒÂ©serens, ad prÃ‡Â½mia futÃƒÂºra dispÃƒÂ³nas.
A LITERAL VERSION
O God, of whose mercy there is no reckoning,
and whose treasury of goodness is infinite:
always imploring Your clemency
we give thanks to Your most gracious Majesty for the gifts that have been conferred,
so that, You who grant the things petitioned to those seeking them,
even as You never abandon them,
may ready them for the rewards to come.
You will hear in this beautiful prayer an echo of Wisdom 7:14:
“For she [Wisdom] is an infinite treasure to men: which they that use, become the friends of God, being commended for the gifts of discipline….”
