We continue to look at our prayers for Mass during Advent.
SUPER OBLATA (2002MR)
Placare, Domine, quaesumus,
nostrae precibus humilitatis et hostiis,
et, ubi nulla suppetunt suffragia meritorum,
tuae nobis indulgentiae succurre praesidiis.
This prayer is identical to the Secret of the older, 1962 editio typica of the Missale Romanum. I have already written a full article on this prayer for The Wanderer.
Be Thou appeased, O Lord, we beseech Thee,
by the prayers of our humility and by our sacrificial offerings,
and, where no favorable points of merits suffice for us,
succor us by the helps of Thy indulgence.
we are nothing without you.
As you sustain us with your mercy,
receive our prayers and offerings.
