Dominican Prayers


A Dominican Blessing
[English]

May God the Father bless us.
May God the Son heal us.
May God the Holy Spirit enlighten us,
and give us
eyes to see with,
ears to hear with,
hands to do the work of God with,
feet to walk with,
a mouth to preach the word of salvation with,
and the angel of peace to watch over us and lead us at last,
by our Lord's gift, to the Kingdom.

Amen.

Berkat Dominikan
[Indonesian]

Semoga Allah Bapa memberkati kita.
Semoga Allah Putera menyembuhkan kita.
Semoga Allah Roh Kudus menerangi kita,
dan memberi kepada kita
mata untuk melihat,
telinga untuk mendengar,
tangan untuk melaksanakan karya Allah,
kaki untuk berjalan,
dan mulut untuk mewartakan Sabda keselamatan.
Semoga malaikat perdamaian menjaga kita, dan akhirnya,
berkat rahmat Tuhan, membawa kita ke kerajaan-Nya.

Amin.


O Lumen Ecclesiae

O lumen Ecclesiae, doctor veritatis
Rosa patientiae, ebur castitatis
Aquam sapientiae propinasti gratis:
Praedicator gratiae, nos iunge beatis.


O Light of the Church
[English]

O light of the Church, doctor of truth,
Rose of patience, ivory of chastity,
You freely poured forth the waters of wisdom:
Preacher of grace, unite us with the blessed.

Prayer to St. Vincent Ferrer

O Glorious apostle and thaumaturge, St. Vincent Ferrer, the new angel of the Apocalypse and our protector, accept our humble prayer and bring down upon us the abundance of divine favors. By that charity which animated thy heart, obtain for us from the Father of all mercy the pardon of our sins, steadfastness in the faith, perseverance in good works; so that living a fervent Christian life, we may deserve thy powerful patronage.
