Preface VI of the Sundays in Ordinary Time: [The pledge of the eternal Passover]

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 in you we live and move and have our being,
and while in this body
we not only experience the daily effects of your care,
but even now possess the pledge of life eternal.

For, having received the first fruits of the Spirit,
through whom you riased up Jesus from the dead,
we hope for an everlasting share in the Paschal Mystery.

And so, with all the Angels, we praise you,
as in joyful celebration we acclaim:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…

and what they craved the Lord gave them;
they were not disappointed in what they craved. Psalm 78:29-30

that he gave his Only Begotten Son,
so that all who believe in him may not perish,
but may have eternal life. Jn 3:16 [Roman Missal]
