Preface VII of the Sundays in Ordinary Time: [Salvation through the obedience of Christ]

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 you so loved the world
that in your mercy you sent us the Redeemer,
to live like us in all things but sin,
so that you might love in us what you loved in your Son,
by whose obedience we have been restored to those gifts of yours
that, by sinning, we had lost in disobedience.

And so, Lord, with all the Angels and Saints,
we, too, give you thanks, as in exultation we acclaim:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…

I will recount all your wonders,
I will rejoice in you and be glad,
and sing psalms to your name, O Most High. Psalm 9:2-3

Lord, I have come to believe that you are the Christ,
the Son of the living God,
who is coming into this world.Jn 11:27 [Roman Missal]
