Assumpta est Maria in Caelum!

Prayer for the Octave of Our Lady's Assumption

Oremus. Subvéniat, Dómine, plebi tuæ Dei Genitrícis oratio: quam etsi pro conditióne carnis migrásse cognóscimus, in coelésti glória apud te pro nobis intercédere sentiámus. Per eúmdem Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum Fílium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus,
Per omnia saecula saeculorum.
R. Amen.

Let us pray. May the prayer of the Mother of God aid Thy people, O Lord: and although we know her to have passed out of this life, fulfilling the lot of the flesh, may we experience her intercession for us with Thee in Heavenly glory. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God
Forever and ever.
