O God, who didst inspire Saint Philip the Deacon to preach Christ unto the people, and leddest them thereby to thy Holy Sacraments: Grant that the ministers and stewards of thy mysteries may likewise so prepare and make ready thy way, by turning the hearts of the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, that we may be found an acceptable people in thy sight: through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
