a prayer for beginnings and completion

Deus, qui bona cuncta ínchoas benígnus et pérficis,
da nobis, de sollemnitáte sanctæ Dei Genetrícis lætántibus,
sicut de inítiis tuæ grátiæ gloriámur,
ita de perfectióne gaudére.
Per Christum Dóminum nostrum. Amen.

O God, who in your kindness begin all good things
and bring them to fulfilment,
grant to us, who find joy in the Solemnity of the holy Mother of God,
that, just as we glory in the beginnings of your grace,
so one day we may rejoice in its completion.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

(The prayer over the offerings from today’s Mass)
