For Trinity Sunday

[N.28] "Benedicto gratias deo"



Let us return thanks to the Blessed God, we who are blessed by His sacred hand and signed with the consecration of His fingers!

Who didst make anew earth-dwelling men, when we were lost, through Thy only Son, o Holy Father, giving true life to death – Who disdained not to put on our nature, o Christ, and didst bring it for the sins of man to Thy Father as an acceptable sacrifice – o Most Holy Spirit, of Father and Son, true forgiveness of all our sins, and restitution of full innocence, and bestower of uncommon sanctity: To Thee, o Creator Father, be sovereignty – to Thee, o Redeemer Jesu Christ, be kingdom – to the Spirit, Sanctifier and Enlightener of Hearts, be everlasting power!
