The Collect for today is

Almighty God, through your grace,
         Blessed Alfredo Ildefonso, by his exemplary virtue built up

Grant that we, under the guidance of the Gospel,

may follow his teaching and walk in sureness of life,

until we come to see you face to face in your eternal kingdom.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.
