Prayer over the Offerings

[Common of One Pastor]

Receive, O Lord, we pray,
the offerings placed on your altar
in commemoration of blessed Pius,
so that, as you brought him glory,
you may, through these sacred mysteries,
grant us your pardon.
Through Christ our Lord.

Or: [Schema 2]

We humbly implore your majesty, almighty God,
that, just as the offerings made in honor of blessed Pius
bear witness to the glory of divine power,
so they may impart to us the effects of your salvation.
Through Christ our Lord.

Preface of Holy Pastors.

[Common of Religious]


Most merciful God, who were pleased to create in blessed Pius,
the New Man in your image, the old having passed away,
graciously grant, we pray,
that, renewed like him,
we may offer you the acceptable sacrifice of conciliation.
Through Christ our Lord.

Or: [Schema 2]

May these offerings of our service,
placed on your altar in commemoration of blessed Pius,
be acceptable to you, O Lord, we pray,
and grant that, released from earthly attachments,
we may have riches in you alone.
Through Christ our Lord.

Preface of Holy Virgins and Religious or I-II of Saints.
