Omnipotens sempiterne Deus,
da nobis fidei, spei et caritatis augmentum:
et, ut mereamur assequi quod promittis,
fac nos amare quod praecipis.
This prayer, found in the Veronese and the Gelasian Sacramentary, survived the machetes of the Consilium, to live on in the Novus Ordo as the Collect for the 30th Sunday of Ordinary Time.
Almighty everlasting God,
grant us an increase of faith, hope and charity,
and cause us to love what You command
so that we may merit to obtain what You promise.
LAME-DUCK ICEL (1973 – 30th Sunday):
Almighty and ever-living God,
strengthen our faith, hope, and love.
May we do with loving hearts
what you ask of us
and come to share the life you promise.
NEW CORRECTED ICEL (2011 – 30th Sunday):
Almighty ever-living God,
increase our faith, hope and charity,
and make us love what you command,
so that we may merit what you promise.
