Give us the grace to be conspicuous for our adherence to the splendor of truth

O God, who through the grace of adoption
chose us to be children of light,
grant, we pray,
that we may not be wrapped in the darkness of error
but always be seen to stand in the bright light of truth.
Through. . . .

Deus, qui, per adoptionem gratiae,
lucis nos esse filios voluisti,
praesta, quaesumus, ut errorum non involvamur tenebris,
sed in splendore veritatis semper maneamus conspicui.
Per. . . .

O God, who, by the adoption of grace, 
have intended [(voluisti)] us
          to be sons/children of the light,
grant, we pray, that we be not enveloped [(involvamur)]
          in the darkness of errors,
but be conspicuous for our adherence [(lit.:  but, conspicuous,
          adhere)] to the splendor of the truth.
Through. . .

     Collect for the Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Roman missal, in 2015 the first Sunday after the Supreme Court holding on Obergefell v. Hodges.  According to Corpus orationum no. 6821 (vol. 11, p. 28), this is identical to no. 725 in the post-850 Bergomese Sacramentary (Sacramentarium Bergomense), no. 694 in the 10th-century Biasca, and no. 1750 in the early 11th-century Triplex.
     Voluisti can also be a perfect of (in)volvo.
