3rd Week of Advent: Tuesday

Here is the Collect for Tuesday of the 3rd Week of Advent:

Deus, qui novam creaturam
per Unigenitum tuum nos esse fecisti,
in opera misericordiae tuae propitius intuere,
et in adventu Filii tui
ab omnibus nos maculis vetustatis emunda.

This was in the Gelasian Sacramentary, but not in pre-Conciliar editions.  Keep in mind that creatura is not just "a creature", but also "the Creation".

O God, who made us to be a new creation
through Your Only-Begotten Son,
in the working of Your mercy regard us
and in the Coming of Your Son,
cleanse us from every stain of the old man.
