O God, who chosest thy servant Remigius to be the harbinger of salvation to the King and whole nation of the Franks: hasten, we pray thee, the almighty working of thy providence, whereby the kings and chiefs of untaught lands bring in their glory and honour, to take their destined place within the Holy City of thy perfected Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, the light of the faithful and shepherd of souls, who didst set blessed Remigius to be a Bishop in the the church, that he might feed thy sheep by his word, and guide them by his example: Grant us, we beseech thee, to keep the faith which he taught, and to follow in his footsteps; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
