S. Andreae Avellini Confessoris ~ III. classis

Today is the Feast of St Andrew Avellino. Thanks to divinumofficium for the Collect and the English translation.

Deus, qui in corde beati Andreae Confessoris tui, per arduum quotidie in virtutibus proficiendi votum, admirabiles ad te ascensiones disposuisti: concede nobis, ipsius meritis et intercessione, ita eiusdem gratiae participes fieri; ut perfectiora semper exsequentes, ad gloriae tuae fastigium feliciter perducamur.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Filium tuum: qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti Deus, per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
R. Amen.

O God, Who didst make thy blessed Confessor Andrew to settle in his heart to go up wondrously toward thee by a stern vow daily to advance to the utmost of his power in godliness, grant unto us for the same thy servant's sake and at his prayers the like grace, so that we, seeking ever that which is more perfect, may happily attain the crown of thine everlasting glory.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.
