That we may recognize that in our own day God continues to manifest his love for us in the person of the Risen Christ, who is still present among us and sanctifying us through his Church, especially in its liturgical celebrations. (Art. 2)
For our deceased brothers and benefactors, and for all the faithful departed.
For him who will die next among us.
Extinguish, destroy in me all that emanates from the old man, the spirit of lust and pride... (Paris, 9/29/1834)
