Lord God, if You do not build the house, in vain do its builders labor:
We beseech You to inspire with Your Holy Spirit all those who labor to build up your sacred house, that Your people may worship truly and fully, may worthily
receive Your Holy Sacraments, and thus be filled with the abundant grace
obtained through these sacred gifts. This we ask through Christ, Our Lord. Amen. — Prayer from Novena for the Renewal of the Sacred Liturgy
