Chaldean Prayer

Opening Prayer from the Rite of Preparation

Glory to you, O Most High who descended, put on the flesh of our humanity, fulfilled his plan for our salvation, in whose holy Passover broke his Body and mingled his Blood and gave us, who handed himself over to the passion and endured the shameful cross, and, by the Blood and water that poured forth from his side, absolved our sins and washed and cleansed our scars in his grace and mercy, Lord of all forever, amen.

from the Chaldean Catholic Holy Mass
