O God, Father and Son and Holy Spirit,
I thank you for the inestimable gift of the Holy Scriptures.
May I always have a great reverence for your inspired Word,
through which you speak to us and are present in a special way among us.
May I read and understand the holy Bible, the Old and the New Testament,
as you want it to be read and understood—in accordance with the
interpretation and the teaching of Your Church.
May I make the complete observance of the Holy Gospel the rule of my daily life.
May the Scripture readings be of benefit for my soul
and guide me through life’s dangers and temptations to eternal life. Amen
