On the Feast of Saint Benedict of Nursia in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite.
O God, our refuge and our strength, look down with mercy upon the people who cry to Thee; and by the intercession of the glorious and immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Saint Joseph her spouse, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the saints, in Thy mercy and goodness hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners, and for the liberty and exaltation of the Holy Mother the Church. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen. (From Sancta Missa)
Updated 25 May 2018 to replace links to online copies with links for purchase, in view of new knowledge that the translator passed away only in 1959; and hence his translation cannot be assumed to have entered the public domain absent proof. Further information would be most appreciated.
