Vespers prayer on VIGIL of the ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
14 Aug 2017
Almighty, ever-living God,
you have taken the mother of your Son,
the immaculate Virgin Mary,
body and soul into the glory where you dwell.
Keep our hearts set on heaven
so that, with her, we may share in your glory.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
The Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.
