Liturgical Colour : White

Priest : Dominus vobiscum.

Response : Et cum spiritu tuo.

Priest : Deus, qui per Filium Tuum, angularem scilicet lapidem, claritatis Tuae ignem fidelibus contulisti : productum e silice, nostris profuturum usibus novum hanc ignem sanctifica : et concede nobis, ita per haec festa Paschalia caelestibus desideriis inflammari; ut ad perpetuae claritatis, puris mentibus, valeamus festa pertingere. Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

English translation

Priest : The Lord be with you.

Response : And with your spirit.

Priest : O God, Who through Your Son, the Cornerstone, had given to Your faithful the fire of Your brightness, sanctify the new fire, produced out of a flintstone, to be serviceable for our uses, and grant unto us to be so fired with heavenly aspirations through these Paschal festivities, that with pure hearts we may be able to attain to the festivities of perpetual brightness. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
