May the Ears of Thy Mercy Lord be Open to Thy Servants

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.

 

 

("The Liturgical Year", Wednesday of the Fourth Week of Lent, p. 373

By The Very Rev. Dom Prosper Guéranger, Abott of Solesmes, 1868 A.D.)
