Humiliate capita vestra Deo.
Pateant aures misericordiae tuae,
Domine, precibus supplicantium:
et ut petentibus desiderata
concedas, fac eos quae tibi sunt
placita postulare. Per Christum
Dominum nostrum. Amen.
Bow down your heads to God.
May the ears of thy mercy, Lord,
be open to the prayers of thy
servants; and in order to obtain
the effect of our petitions, grant
we may ask what is pleasing to thee.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Week of Lent, p. 373
