From feast to everlasting feast

The Collect of the Traditional Latin Mass for Easter Saturday:

Concéde, quaesumus, omnípotens Deus: ut, qui festa paschália venerándo égimus, per hæc contíngere ad gaudia ætérna mereámur. Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum, Filium tuum: qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum.  Amen.

Grant, we beseech thee, O Almighty God, that we who have kept worshipfully the Passover holidays, may at last worthily pass from keeping Feasts unto thee here to the everlasting jubilation hereafter. 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.  Amen.
