A Letter to the Entire Order - 121 

may we be able to follow
in the footprints of Your beloved Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
52and, by Your grace alone,
may we make our way to You,
Most High,
Who live and rule
in perfect Trinity and simple Unity,
and are glorified
God almighty,
forever and ever.

51ut interius mundati, interius illuminati et igne sancti spiritus accensi sequi possimus vestigia dilecti Filii tui, Domini nostri Jesu Christi, 52et ad te, Altissime, sola tua gratia pervenire, qui in Trinitate perfecta et Unitate simplici vivis et regnas et gloriaris Deus omnipotens per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.
