My dear people, let us pray that God the all-powerful Father will mercifully pour out the grace of his blessing on this, his servant, whom in his kindness he raises to the sacred Order of the diaconate.
We beseech you, Lord: look with favor on these servants of yours who will minister at your holy altar and whom we now humbly dedicate to the office of deacon.
Blessed are they who dwell in your house, O Lord. Alleluia.
Receive the Gospel of Christ, whose herald you have become. Believe what you read, teach what you believe, and practice what you teach.
