Tatalo mo le Mafutaga a Tina

    Le Atua e, le na foafoaina mea uma lava i le amataga, na e foa-foaina le fafine o le atoaga o le matagofie o le foafoaga na e faia.  Na e tu'uina iai lana matafaioi e galulue vaavaalua ma le Tama, mo lau afio le Atua Foafoa.
    Ua matou potopoto ma le fiafia tele, e faataunuuina la matou pitolaau ma o matou matafaioi e pei ona valaauina ia i matou.      A'oa'oina i matou ia o matou iloa le taua o lo matou tofiga fa'a-Tina.  Ia e a'oa'oina i matou i le tu-noa o lou alofa fa'a-Tina e lavatia ai tiga, lou alofa fa'a-Tina e saili ai le tagata e ui ina teteva ma fulitua i lau afio.  Ia e a'oa'oina o matou Tina, e leai se tuaoi o lou agalelei.      Ua matou tatalo i lau afio, ia le taotaomia matafaioi fa'a-Tina ona o sauaga ma mafatiaga, ia e a'oa'oina le Tama, ina ia soalaupule ma le Tina.
    Ua matou valaau i lau afio, ona o atunuu ma Ekalesia o loo tao-taomia ai pea aia tatau o Tina, ia saunia se ala e mafai ai ona latou iloa le taua ma le mafanafana o le alofa fa'a-Tina.
    
Ua matou tatalo i lau afio ia le avea lo matou iloa o le taua o o matou tofiga ma matafaioi, matou te ati ai se pa e vavaeese ai i matou mai Tama, a ia galulue fa'atasi ma Tama e ofoina atu taumafaiga uma mo lou viiga.     Aumaia ia i matou mafaufauga lelei ma leo malu e fautuaina ai Tama e tusa ma lou finagalo.  Ia atagia i Tina foliga o lau afio.  Ua matou tatalo e ala ia Iesu lo matou Alii Fa'aola, Amene.
