We should offer this up as prayer for Vox and this site, all those here in need of prayers, past, present, and future. Perhaps we can find a collect which fits our needs. I'm thinking of a Benedictine one for this, but it's for the dead, relatives, benefacors, and brethren. The good which has come from this site is immeasurable, me included.
The collect that first comes to mind is this one, Pro vivis et defunctis
from the Orationes Diversae
in the Missale Romanum
; it is also the final collect said after the Litany of the Saints:
Omnípotens sempitérne Deus, qui vivórum domináris simul et mortuórum, omniúmque miseréris, quos tuos fide et ópere futúros esse praenóscis: te súpplices exorámus ; ut, pro quibus effúndere preces decrévimus, quosque vel praesens saéculum adhuc in carne rétinet, vel futúrum jam exútos córpore suscépit, intercedéntibus ómnibus Sanctis tuis, pietátis tuae cleméntia ómnium delictórum suórum véniam consequántur. Per Dóminum.
My St. Joseph Missal
translates it like this (I restored the archaic forms):
Almighty, everlasting God, thou hast dominion over the living and the dead, and thou art merciful to all whom thou foreknowest will be thine by faith and good works; we humbly beg thee that those for whom we intend to pour forth our prayers, whether this present world still detain them in the flesh, or the world to come has already received them out of their bodies, may, through the intercession of all thy Saints, by the clemency of thy goodness, obtain the remission of all their sins. Through.
Adding it as a commemoration would need an antiphon and a v/r, and would not really be sanctioned by the rubrics, though as laypersons praying the Office ex devotione
, I think we have some latitude. Another option might be to add this collect between the Aperi, Domine
(if you say it) and the Pater
before the hours.
