"Do you resolve to discharge the office of Deacon with humble charity in order to assist the priestly Order and to benefit the Christian people?"
"Send forth upon them, Lord, we pray, the Holy Spirit,
that they may be strengthened
by the gift of your sevenfold grace for the faithful carrying out
of the work of the ministry."
