Prayer after Prostration
Deus, qui peccati veteris hereditarium mortem, in qua posteritatis genus omne successerat, Christi Tui, Domini nostri, passione solvisti : da, ut, conformes eidem facti; sicut imaginem terrenae naturae necessitate portavimus, ita imaginem caelestis gratiae sanctificatione portemus. Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum, Filium Tuum, Qui Tecum vivis et regnas in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.
O God, by the Passion of Christ Your Son, our Lord, You have banished the inheritance of death due to original sin, which had fallen on all posterity. Grant, that by being made alike to Him, as of necessity we bear the likeness of our human nature, so by being made holy, we may manifest the likeness of heavenly grace. Through the same Christ our Lord, Your Son, who with You lives and reigns in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.
