Let us pray.

Almighty everlasting God, be pleased to bless + and to hallow + this vessel made to expose, for the faithful’s adoration, the body of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. May all who in this life piously adore your only-begotten Word possess Him in the life to come as their everlasting recompense; through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.
