BLESSING OF THEPAST YEAR

From Prayers

O God, the beginning and the end of all things,

Who art always the same,

and Whose years fail not,

we now, at the close of another year,

kneel in adoration before Thee,

and offer Thee our deepest thanks

for the fatherly care

with which Thou has watched over us during the past,

for the many times Thou hast protected us

from evils of soul and body,

and for the numberless blessings,

both temporal and spiritual,

which Thou hast showered upon us.

May it please Thee to accept the homage of our grateful hearts

which we offer Thee

in union with the infinite thanksgiving of Thy divine Son,

our Lord Jesus Christ,

Who with Thee liveth and reigneth forever and ever.


Amen.
