A great new feature of the 2002 Missale Romanum in Latin is that for Lent the "Prayer over the people" or Oratio super populum has been revived as an option.
Priests can use this prayer NOW at the end of Mass, but still only in the Latin.
Yah, I know.. I keep posting these as if they were, I dunno, interesting.
Let’s have a look at today’s:
ORATIO SUPER POPULUM (2002MR):
Tibi placitam, Deus noster, populo tuo tribue voluntatem,
quia tunc illi prospera cuncta praestabis
cum tuis aptum feceris institutis.
This prayer has ancient origins, being in the Sacramentarium Leonianum, the Liber sacramentorum Augustodunensis, etc. I don’t think it was in the pre-Conciliar edition of the Missale Romanum.
I have been posting these each day, translating them and commenting.
How about you readers do that today?
