All-powerful, eternal God, You have chosen to give mankind a model of humility;
Our Saviour took on our flesh, and subjected Himself to the cross. Grant us the grace to
Preserve faithfully the lessons He has given us in His passion and to have a share in
His resurrection. This we ask of You through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son. Amen.
