let the virtue of Thy Holy Spirit descend on these books;

let it purify, bless, and sanctify them.

Sweetly enlighten the hearts of those who read them,

impart their true sense to them.

Grant us also to be faithful to the precepts emanating from Thy Light,

in accomplishing them by good works, according to Thy Will.
