A collect after Communion or before the Blessed Sacrament

Rite I
O Lord Jesus Christ, who didst seat thy blessed mother next to thy throne in heaven: vouchsafe to deliver us whom thou hast sanctified in baptism and who now receive (behold) thee veiled from sight, and bring us together with all thou hast made, into the thine eternal kingdom of righteousness and charity, where with the Father and the Holy Ghost thou livest and reignest, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Rite II
Lord Jesus Christ, you seated your mother next to your throne in heaven. May we who have been baptised into your death and resurrection and now receive (behold) you veiled from sight be brought with all creation into your eternal kingdom of justice and love, where you live and reign with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

(Another indulgence for the first one to guess which I wrote first)

Well, Rite I needs some help with the placing of the verb "deliver" (in its relation to the phrase "together...hast made", so I suppose that ambiguity was just your first attempt.
