O highest Princes of the supreme King of the eternal court, the Apostles whom Jesus taught and gave to the world. The spiritual Jerusalem, whose lamp is the Lamb, possessed you, sparkling jewels, as her bright foundation. Now the Church, the bride of Christ, which your word inspires and your blood consecrated, hails and celebrates you. When the world ends and the Judge, the Redeemer, sits enthroned, in whose praise you will also sit, O assembly of glory. Wherefore now may your prayer ever aid and strengthen us that the seeds which you have planted may flourish in the grain of heaven. Eternal glory to Christ, you made you messengers of the Father and the Spirit who filled you with divine love. Amen.
May heaven exult with praises, earth resound with joy: holy solemnities sing the glory of the Apostles. Who with a word close the doors to heaven and loosen its bars: we beseech you at your command absolve us from all our sins. By your decree ill health and the sickness are subdued: heal the sick and restore us to strength of life. That when Christ the Judge will come at the end of time, he will grant us to share in everlasting joys. Praises of glory be to God, who granted that through you we be instructed in the teaching of the Gospel and attain heaven. Amen.
