Collect For the Solemnity of the Assumption (In Latin)

Omnípotens sempitérne Deus, qui ImmaculátamVírginem Maríam, Fílii tui genitrícem, córpore et ánima ad coeléstem glóriam assumpsísti: concéde, quaesumus; ut, ad superna semper inténti, ipsíus glóriæ mereámur esse consórtes.
Per eundem Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum filium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen

Collect for the Feast of St. Maron

O Hope of the faithful and Strength of the weary, look kindly upon your Church which celebrates the Feast of our Father, Maron. You chose him to be a hermit whose life would be a hymn of knowledge and love. Make us worthy to fulfil your purpose as he did and to meet you when we enter your garden of delights. There, with all your good and faithful servants, we will offer you praise, now and forever.

Why This Title?

Why am I calling this blog She Also Collects Collects?
Well, that can best be explained by the following, taken from a post in one of my other blogs.

I now have three collections. (As of August, four!)  I think that's enough! If I go on,
I'll end up with a collection of collections!
Then again, perhaps I should start just one more collection, just ONE
more. Maybe I should collect various versions, [including some very
old Latin ones] of the opening prayer at Mass.
Then you could say about me,
"In addition to her other three collections, she also collects Collects!" 

Hence the title!
