A prayer for liturgical translators

Posted today by Fr. Zuhlsdorf.

Almighty and merciful God,
who hast poured forth the Holy Spirit abundantly
upon the Church of Thy Only-begotten Son,
vouchsafe, we beseech Thee, inspiration and constancy
to those now laboring with great zeal
in rendering the prayers of the same Holy Church
from Latin into the diverse languages of all nations,
so that we who were estranged by an ancient act of pride
may be able both to offer Thee prayers properly
and being one in heart and mind receive from Thee the means of salvation.

Oratio pro interpretibus
Omnipotens et misericors Deus,
qui super Unigeniti Filii tui Ecclesiam
Sanctum Spiritum abundanter effudisti,
tribue, quaesumus, inspirationem et constantiam
laborantibus magno cum studio
in orationes eiusdem sanctae Ecclesiae convertendo
e Latino in omnium gentium sermones,
ut nos, vetusta dissociati superbia,
et preces offere tibi valeamus decore
et unanimiter a te accipere salutifera.
Per Christum Dominum nostrum.
