Collect for Saturday of Passion Week

In general, I find all of the (extraordinary form) collects for the days of Passiontide edifying and inspirational. I particularly like the collect for Saturday of Passion Week:

Proficiat, quaesumus Domine,
plebs tibi dicata piae devotionis affectu:
ut sacris actionibus erudita,
quanto majestati tuae fit gratior,
tanto donis potioribus augeatur.

Let us pray
We beseech thee, O Lord,
may the people who are dedicated to Thee
advance in piety and devotion:
and instructed by these sacred rites,
may they abound in ever greater gifts,
as they become more pleasing
in the sight of Thy Majesty.
