O God, to serve you is to reign. By the prayers of Blessed Aimo whom you made a mighty champion of the faith may we serve you by promoting peace and unity in the Church and come to enjoy the everlasting 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. – General Calendar of the Order of Preachers

Almighty and most merciful God, to serve whom is to reign, grant, through the merits and intercession of Blessed Aimo, Thy Confessor, whom Thou didst make a famous champion of the Faith, that, keeping Thy commandments faithfully on earth, we may deserve to enjoy Thy eternal kingdom with him in heaven. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. – Office Book of Dominican Sisters
