Lord Jesus Christ, you are our hope and our desire. Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, purify our hearts to seek you and your will with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our mind, that we may rejoice in the unimaginable blessing of your coming, which we prepare to celebrate. Who live and reign with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
