Collect for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
August 15

Omnipotens sempiterne Deus,
qui immaculatam Virginem Mariam, Filii tui Genetricem,
corpore et anima ad caelestem gloriam assumpsisti,
concede, quaesumus, ut, ad superna semper intenti,
ipsius gloriae mereamur esse consortes.
Per Dominum nostrum, Iesum Christum, filium tuum,
qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus,
per omnia saecula saeculorum.


Almighty everlasting God,
who assumed into the glory of heaven, body and soul,
the immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of your Son,
grant, we pray, that, always intent on things above,
we may be worthy to share in her glory.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and
reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God,
forever and ever.
