Jesus the King of Glory with Saints of the Church and Old Testament

Almighty God, who hast knit together Thine elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical body of Thy Son Jesus Christ, our Lord, give us grace so to follow Thy blessed Saints in all virtuous and godly living that we may come to those ineffable joys which Thou hast prepared for those who unfeignèdly love Thee; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who with Thee and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

O God, the King of Saints, we praise and magnify thy Holy Name for all thy servants who have finished their course in thy faith and fear; for the Blessèd Virgin Mary; for the holy Patriarchs, Prophets, Apostles, and Martyrs; and for all other thy righteous servants, known to us and unknown; and we beseech thee that, encouraged by their examples, aided by their prayers, and strengthened by their fellowship, we also may be partakers of the inheritance of the Saints in light; through the Merits of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty and everlasting God, who hast granted us to venerate in one solemn feast the merits of all Thy Saints, we beseech Thee, that, since so many are praying for us, Thou wouldst pour forth upon us the desired abundance of Thy mercy. Through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
