Ecclesiam tuam benignus illumina

The Secret prayer of the Mass of the Feast of St. Pius V, Pope and Confessor:

Oblátis munéribus, quaésumus, Dómine, Ecclésiam tuam benígnus illúmina: ut, et gregis tui profíciat ubíque succéssus, et grati fiant nómini tuo, te gubernánte, pastóres. Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum, Filium tuum: qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum.

We beg Thee, O Lord, through the gifts which we have offered, in Thy kindness enlighten Thy Church: so that everywhere Thy flock may prosper and her Shepherds by Thy guidance be pleasing to Thy name. 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.
