Preface III of the Sundays in Ordinary Time: [The salvation of man by a man]

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God.

For we know it belongs to your boundless glory,
that you came to the aid of mortal beings with your divinity
and even fashioned for us a remedy out of mortality itself,
that the cause of our downfall
might become the means of our salvation,
Through Christ our Lord.

Through him the host of Angels adores your majesty
and rejoices in your presence for ever.
May our voices, we pray, join with theirs
in one chorus of exultant praise, as we acclaim:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…

let your faces not be ashamed. Psalm 34:6

I am the light of the world, says the Lord;
whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,

we may always glory in your gift.

Through Christ our Lord. A-men.
