January 1st

 

God our Father,

may we always profit by the prayers

of the Virgin Mother Mary,

for you bring us life and salvation

through Jesus her Son

who lives and reigns with and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

 

Amen

 

 

January 2st

 

God our Father,

you inspired the Church

with the example and teaching of your saints Basil and Gregory.

In humility may we come to know your truth

and put it into actions with faith and love.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son

who lives and reigns with and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

 

Amen
