Corpus Christi

Buona festa! What a joy it is to celebrate this feast twice a year!
During the Mass and Office we also have the chance to hear the wonderful collect composed by St. Thomas Aquinas, which is also, of course, chanted at Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament:
Deus, qui nobis sub sacramento mirabili
passionis tuae memoriam reliquisti,
tribue, quaesumus,
ita nos Corporis et Sanguinis tui sacra mysteria venerari,
ut redemptionis tuae fructum in nobis iugiter sentiamus.
I fear that ICEL haven't done the prayer much justice but the linked page provides a variety of translations.
