Deinde, manibus iunctis super Altare, inclinatus dicit:
Orámus te, Dómine, per mérita Sanctórum tuórum, Osculatur Altare in medio quorum relíquiæ hic sunt, et ómnium Sanctórum: ut indulgére dignéris ómnia peccáta mea. Amen.

R. Amen.

Lectio
Léctio Isaíæ Prophétæ.
Isa 63:1-7
Hæc dicit Dóminus Deus: Dícite fíliæ Sion: Salvátor tuus venit: ecce, merces eius cum eo. Quis est iste, qui venit de Edom, tinctis véstibus de Bosra? Iste formósus in stola sua, grádiens in multitúdine fortitúdinis suæ. Ego, qui loquor iustítiam, et propugnátor sum ad salvándum. Quare ergo rubrum est induméntum tuum, et vestiménta tua sicut calcántium in torculári? Tórcuar calcávi solus, et de géntibus non est vir mecum: calcávi eos in furóre meo, et conculcávi eos in ira mea: et aspérsus est sanguis eórum super vestiménta mea, et ómnia induménta mea inquinávi. Dies enim ultiónis in corde meo, annus redemptiónis meæ venit. Circumspéxi, et non erat auxiliátor: quæsívi, et non fuit, qui adiuváret: et salvávit mihi bráchium meum, et indignátio mea ipsa auxiliáta est mihi. Et conculcávi pópulos in furóre meo, et inebriávi eos in indignatióne mea, et detráxi in terram virtútem eórum. Miseratiónum Dómini recordábor, laudem Dómini super ómnibus, quæ réddidit nobis Dóminus, Deus noster.

Graduale
Ps 68:18 et 2-3
Ne avértas fáciem tuam a púero tuo, quóniam tríbulor: velóciter exáudi me.
V. Salvum me fac, Deus, quóniam intravérunt aquæ usque ad ánimam meam: infíxus sum in limo profúndi, et non est substántia.

Oratio
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
Orémus.
Deus, qui pro nobis Fílium tuum Crucis patíbulum subire voluísti, ut inimíci a nobis expélleres potestatem: concéde nobis fámulis tuis; ut resurrectiónis grátiam consequámur.
Per eundem Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum filium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum.
R. Amen.

Collect
Then the priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says:
The Collects mean the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
Let us pray.
V. Let us kneel.
R. Arise.
Grant we beseech thee Almighty God, that we who are continually afflicted by reason of our waywardness, may be delivered by the Passion of thy only-begotten Son.
Who livest and reignest with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.
R. Amen

Lesson
Lesson from the book of Isaias the Prophet
Isa 63:1-7
Thus sayeth the Lord God : telleth the daughter of Sion: Behold they Saviour cometh; behold His reward is with Him and His work before Him.Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bosra, this beautiful one in his robe, walking in the greatness of his strength. I, that speak justice, and am a defender to save. Why then is thy apparel red, and thy garments like theirs that tread in the winepress? I have trodden the winepress alone, and of the Gentiles there is not a man with me: I have trampled on them in my indignation, and have trodden them down in my wrath, and their blood is sprinkled upon my garments, and I have stained all my apparel. For the day of vengeance is in my heart, the year of my redemption is come. I looked about, and there was none to help: I sought, and there was none to give aid: and my own arm hath saved for me, and my indignation itself hath helped me. And I have trodden down the people in my wrath, and have made them drunk in my indignation, and have brought down their strength to the earth. I will remember the tender mercies of the Lord, the praise of the Lord for all the things that the Lord hath bestowed upon us.

Gradual
Ps 68:18; 68:2-3
And turn not away thy face from thy servant: for I am in trouble, hear me speedily.
V. Save me, O God: for the waters are come in even unto my soul. [3] I stick fast in the mire of the deep: and there is no sure standing.

Collect
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
Let us pray.
O God, who to drive far from us the power of the enemy, didst will that thy Son should suffer for us on the gibbet of the cross, grant us thy servants, that we mayt obtain the grace of the resurrection.
Through the same Jesus Christ, thy Son, Our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
R. Amen.


Lectio
Léctio Isaíæ Prophétæ.
Is 53:1-12.
In diébus illis: Dixit Isaías: Dómine,
quis crédidit audi tui nostro? et bráchium Dómini cui revelátum est? Et ascéndet sicut virgúltum coram eo, et sicut radix de terra sitiénti: non est spécies ei neque decor: et vídimus eum, et non erat aspéctus, et desiderávimus eum: despéctum et novíssimum virórum, virum dolórum, et sciéntem infirmitátem: et quasi abscónditus vultus eius et despéctus, unde nec reputávimus eum. Vere languóres nostros ipse tulit, et dolóres nostros ipse portávit: et nos putávimus eum quasi leprósum, et percússum a Deo, et humiliátum. Ipse autem vulnerátus est propter iniquitátes nostras, attrítus est propter scélera nostra: disciplína pacis nostræ super eum, et livóre eius sanáti sumus. Omnes nos quasi oves errávimus, unusquísque in viam suam declinávit: et pósuit Dóminus in eo iniquitátem ómnium nostrum. Oblátus est, quia ipse vóluit, et non apéruit os suum: sicut ovis ad occisiónem ducátur, et quasi agnus coram tondénte se obmutéscet, et non apériet os suum. De angústia et de iudício sublátus est: generatiónem eius quis enarrábit? quia abscíssus est de terra vivéntium: propter scelus pópuli mei percússi eum. Et dabit ímpios pro sepultúra, et dívitem pro morte sua: eo quod iniquitátem non fécerit, neque dolus fúerit in ore eius. Et Dóminus vóluit contérere eum in infirmitáte: si posúerit pro peccáto ánimam suam, vidébit semen longaevum, et volúntas Dómini in manu eius dirigátur. Pro eo, quod laborávit ánima eius, vidébit, et saturábitur: in sciéntia sua iustificábit ipse iustus servus meus multos, et iniquitátes eórum ipse portábit. Ideo dispértiam ei plúrimos: et fórtium dívidet spólia, pro eo, quod trádidit in mortem ánimam suam, et cum scelerátis reputátus est: et ipse peccáta multórum tulit, et pro transgressóribus rogávit.
R. Deo gratias.

Lesson
Lesson from the book of Isaias the Prophet
Isa 53:1-12
Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? And he shall grow up as a tender plant before him, and as a root out of a thirsty ground: there is no beauty in him, nor comeliness: and we have seen him, and there was no sightliness, that we should be desirous of him: Despised, and the most abject of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with infirmity: and his look was as it were hidden and despised, whereupon we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our infirmities and carried our sorrows: and we have thought him as it were a leper, and as one struck by God and afflicted. But he was wounded for our iniquities, he was bruised for our sins: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his bruises we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray, every one hath turned aside into his own way: and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was offered because it was his own will, and he opened not his mouth: he shall be led as a sheep to the slaughter, and shall be dumb as a lamb before his shearer, and he shall not open his mouth. He was taken away from distress, and from judgment: who shall declare his generation? because he is cut oh out of the land of the living: for the wickedness of my people have I struck him. And he shall give the ungodly for his burial, and the rich for his death: because he hath done no iniquity, neither was there deceit in his mouth. And the Lord was pleased to bruise him in infirmity: if he shall lay down his life for sin, he shall see a long-lived seed, and the will of the Lord shall be prosperous in his hand. Because his soul hath laboured, he shall see and be filled: by his knowledge shall this my just servant justify many, and he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I distribute to him very many, and he shall divide the spoils of the strong, because he hath delivered his soul unto death, and was reputed with the wicked: and he hath borne the sins of many, and hath prayed for the transgressors.
R. Thanks be to God.

Ps. 101:2-5,14
Domine, exaudi orationem meam, et clamor meus ad te veniat.
V. Ne avertas faciem tuam a me: in quacumque die tribulor, inclina ad me aurem tuam.
V. In quacumque die invocavero te, velociter exaudi me.
V. Quia defecerunt sicut fumus dies mei: et ossa mea sicut in frixorio confrixa sunt.
V. Percussus sum sicut faenum, et aruit cor meum: quia oblitus sum manducare panem meum.
V. Tu exsurgens, Domine, misereberis Sion: quia venit tempus miserendi eius,

Hear, O Lord, my prayer: and let my cry come to thee.
V. Turn not away thy face from me: in the day when I am in trouble, incline thy ear to me.

V For my days are vanished like smoke: and my bones are grown dry like fuel for the fire.
V. I am smitten as grass, and my heart is withered: because I forgot to eat my bread.
V. Thou shalt arise and have mercy on Sion: for it is time to have mercy on it, for the time is come.
Evangelium
Munda cor meum ac labia mea, omnípotens Deus, qui labia Isaíæ Prophétæ cálculo mundásti igníto: ita me tua grata miseratióne dignáre mundáre, ut sanctum Evangélium tuum digne váleam nuntiáre. Per Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
D. Iube, domne, benedícere.
S. Dóminus sit in córdibus vestris et in lábiis vestris: ut digne et competénter annuntiétis Evangélium suum: In nómine Patris, et Fílii, et Spíritus Sancti.
D. Amen.

Pássio Dómini nostri Iesu Christi secúndum Lucam.
Luc 22:1-71; 23:1-53
In illo témpore: Appropinquábat dies festus azymórum, qui dícitur Pascha: et quærébant príncipes sacerdótum et scribæ, quómodo Iesum interfícerent: timébant vero plebem. Intrávit autem sátanas in Iudam, qui cognominabátur Iscariótes, unum de duódecim. Et ábiit, et locútus est cum princípibus sacerdótum et magistrátibus, quemádmodum illum tráderet eis. Et gavísi sunt, et pacti sunt pecúniam illi dare. Et spopóndit. Et quærébat opportunitátem, ut tráderet illum sine turbis. Venit autem dies azymórum, in qua necésse erat occídi pascha. Et misit Petrum et Ioánnem, dicens: I. Eúntes paráte nobis pascha, ut manducémus. C. At illi dixérunt: S. Ubi vis parémus? C. Et dixit ad eos: I. Ecce, introëúntibus vobis in civitátem, occúrret vobis homo quidam ámphoram aquæ portans: sequímini eum in domum, in quam intrat, et dicétis patrifamílias domus: Dicit tibi Magister: Ubi est diversórium, ubi pascha cum discípulis meis mandúcem? Et ipse osténdet vobis cenáculum magnum stratum, et ibi paráte. C. Eúntes autem invenérunt, sicut dixit illis, et paravérunt pascha. Et cum facta esset hora, discúbuit, et duódecim Apóstoli cum eo. Et ait illis: I. Desidério desiderávi hoc pascha manducáre vobíscum, ántequam pátiar. Dico enim vobis, quia ex hoc non manducábo illud, donec impleátur in regno Dei. C. Et accépto cálice, grátias egit, et dixit: I. Accípite, et divídite inter vos. Dico enim vobis, quod non bibam de generatióne vitis, donec regnum Dei véniat. C. Et accépto pane, grátias egit, et fregit, et dedit eis, dicens: I. Hoc est corpus meum, quod pro vobis datur: hoc fácite in meam commemoratiónem. C. Simíliter et cálicem, postquam cenávit, dicens: I. Hic est calix novum Testaméntum in sánguine meo, qui pro vobis fundétur. Verúmtamen ecce manus tradéntis me mecum est in mensa. Et quidem Fílius hóminis, secúndum quod definítum est, vadit: verúmtamen væ hómini illi, per quem tradétur. C. Et ipsi coepérunt quaerere inter se, quis esset ex eis, qui hoc factúrus esset. Facta est autem et conténtio inter eos, quis eórum viderétur esse maior. Dixit autem eis: I. Reges géntium dominántur eórum: et qui potestátem habent super eos, benéfici vocántur. Vos autem non sic: sed qui maior est in vobis, fiat sicut minor: et qui præcéssor est, sicut ministrátor. Nam quis maior est, qui recúmbit, an qui minístrat? nonne qui recúmbit? Ego autem in médio vestrum sum, sicut qui minístrat: vos autem estis, qui permansístis mecum in tentatiónibus meis. Et ego dispóno vobis, sicut dispósuit mihi Pater meus regnum, ut edátis et bibátis super mensam meam in regno meo: et sedeátis super thronos, iudicántes duódecim tribus Israël. C. Ait autem Dóminus: I. Simon, Simon, ecce, sátanas expetívit vos, ut cribráret sicut tríticum: ego autem rogávi pro te, ut non defíciat fides tua: et tu aliquándo convérsus confírma fratres tuos. C. Qui dixit ei: S. Dómine, tecum parátus sum, et in cárcerem et in mortem ire. C. At ille dixit: Dico tibi, Petre: Non cantábit hódie gallus, donec ter ábneges nosse me. C. Et dixit eis: I. Quando misi vos sine saeculo et pera et calceaméntis, numquid aliquid défuit vobis? C. At illi dixérunt: S. Nihil. C. Dixit ergo eis: I. Sed nunc, qui habet saeculum, tollat simíliter et peram: et qui non habet, vendat túnicam suam, et emat gládium: Dico enim vobis, quóniam adhuc hoc, quod scriptum est, oportet impléri in me: Et cum iníquis deputátus est. Etenim ea, quæ sunt de me, finem habent. C. At illi dixérunt: S. Dómine, ecce duo gládii hic. C. At ille dixit eis: I. Satis est. C. Et egréssus ibat secúndum consuetúdinem in montem Olivárum. Secúti sunt autem illum et discípuli. Et cum pervenísset ad locum, dixit illis: I. Oráte, ne intrétis in tentatiónem. C. Et ipse avúlsus est ab eis, quantum iactus est lápidis, et pósitis génibus orábat, dicens: I. Pater, si vis, transfer cálicem istum a me: verúmtamen non mea volúntas, sed tua fiat. C. Appáruit autem illi Angelus de coelo, ccnfórtans eum. Et factus in agónia, prolíxius orábat. Et factus est sudor eius, sicut guttæ sánguinis decurréntis in terram. Et cum surrexísset ab oratióne, et venísset ad discípulos suos, invénit eos dormiéntes præ tristítia. Et ait illis: I.Quid dormítis? súrgite, oráte, ne intrétis in tentatiónem. C. Adhuc eo loquénte, ecce turba: et qui vocabátur Iudas, unus de duódecim, antecedébat eos: et appropinquávit Iesu, ut oscularétur eum. Iesus autem dixit illi: I. Iuda, ósculo Fílium hóminis tradis? C. Vidéntes autem hi, qui circa ipsum erant, quod futúrum erat, dixérunt ei: S. Dómine, si percútimus in gladio? C. Et percússit unus ex illis servum príncipis sacerdótum, et amputávit aurículam eius déxteram. Respóndens autem Iesus, ait: I. Sínite usque huc. C. Et cum tetigísset aurículam eius, sanávit eum. Dixit autem Iesus ad eos, qui vénerant ad se, príncipes sacerdótum et magistrátus templi et senióres: I. Quasi ad latrónem exístis cum gládiis et fústibus? Cum cotídie vobíscum fúerim in templo, non extendístis manus in me: sed hæc est hora vestra et potéstas tenebrárum. C. Comprehendéntes autem eum, duxérunt ad domum príncipis sacerdótum: Petrus vero sequebátur a longe. Accénso autem igne in médio átrii, et circumsedéntibus illis, erat Petrus in médio eórum. Quem cum vidísset ancílla quædam sedéntem ad lumen, et eum fuísset intúita, dixit: S. Et hic cum illo erat. C. At ille negávit eum, dicens: S. Múlier, non novi illum. C. Et post pusíllum álius videns eum, dixit: S. Et tu de illis es. C. Petrus vero ait: S. O homo, non sum. C. Et intervállo facto quasi horæ uníus, álius quidam affirmábat, dicens: S. Vere et hic cum illo erat: nam et Galilaeus est. C. Et ait Petrus: S. Homo, néscio, quid dicis. C. Et contínuo adhuc illo loquénte cantávit gallus. Et convérsus Dóminus respéxit Petrum. Et recordátus est Petrus verbi Dómini, sicut díxerat: Quia priúsquam gallus cantet, ter me negábis. Et egréssus foras Petrus flevit amáre. Et viri, qui tenébant illum, illudébant ei, cædéntes. Et velavérunt eum et percutiébant fáciem eius: et interrogábant eum, dicéntes: S. Prophetíza, quis est, qui te percússit? C. Et alia multa blasphemántes dicébant in eum. Et ut factus est dies, convenérunt senióres plebis et príncipes sacerdótum et scribæ, et duxérunt illum in concílium suum, dicente? S. Si tu es Christus, dic nobis. C. Et ait illis: I. Si vobis díxero, non credétis mihi: si autem et interrogávero, non respondébitis mihi, neque dimítte ti S. Ex hoc autem erit Fílius hóminis sedens a dextris virtútis Dei. C. Dixérunt autem omnes: S. Tu ergo es Fílius Dei? C. Qui ait: I. Vos dicitis, quia ego sum. C. At illi dixérunt: S. Quid adhuc desiderámus te stimónium ? Ipsi enim audívimus de ore eius. C. Et surgens omnis multitúdo eórum, duxérunt illum ad Pilátum. Coepérunt autem illum accusáre, dicéntes: S. Hunc invénimus subverténtem gentem nostram, et prohibéntem tribúta dare Caesari, et dicéntem se Christum regem esse. C. Pilátus autem interrogávit eum, dicens: S. Tu es Rex Iudæórum? C. At ille respóndens, ait: I. Tu dicis. C. Ait autem Pilátus ad príncipes sacerdótum et turbas: S. Nihil invénio causæ in hoc hómine. C. At illi invalescébant, dicéntes: S. Cómmovet pópulum, docens per univérsam Iudaeam, incípiens a Galilaea usque huc. C. Pilátus autem áudiens Galilaeam, interrogávit, si homo Galilaeus esset. Et ut cognóvit, quod de Heródis potestáte esset, remísit eum ad Heródem, qui et ipse Ierosólymis erat illis diébus. Heródes autem, viso Iesu, gavísus est valde. Erat enim cúpiens ex multo témpore vidére eum, eo quod audíerat multa de eo, et sperábat signum áliquod vidére ab eo fíeri. Interrogábat autem eum multis sermónibus. At ipse nihil illi respondébat. Stabant autem príncipes sacerdótum et scribæ, constánter accusántes eum. Sprevit autem illum Heródes cum exércitu suo: et illúsit indútum veste alba, et remísit ad Pilátum. Et facti sunt amíci Heródes et Pilátus in ipsa die: nam ántea inimíci erant ad ínvicem. Pilátus autem, convocátis princípibus sacerdótum et magistrátibus et plebe, dixit ad illos: S. Obtulístis mihi hunc hóminem, quasi averténtem pópulum, et ecce, ego coram vobis intérrogans, nullam causam invéni in hómine isto ex his, in quibus eum accusátis. Sed neque Heródes: nam remísi vos ad illum, et ecce, nihil dignum morte actum est ei. Emendátum ergo illum dimíttam. C. Necésse autem habébat dimíttere eis per diem festum, unum. Exclamávit autem simul univérsa turba, dicens: S. Tolle hunc, et dimítte nobis Barábbam. C. Qui erat propter seditiónem quandam fáciam in civitáte et homicídium missus in cárcerem. Iterum autem Pilátus locútus est ad eos, volens dimíttere Iesum. At illi succlamábant, dicéntes: S. Crucifíge, crucifíge eum. C. Ille autem tértio dixit ad illos: S. Quid enim mali fecit iste? Nullam causam mortis invénio in eo: corrípiam ergo illum et dimíttam. C. At illi instábant vócibus magnis, postulántes, ut crucifigerétur. Et invalescébant voces eórum. Et Pilátus adiudicávit fíeri petitiónem eórum. Dimísit autem illis eum, qui propter homicídium et seditiónem missus fúerat in cárcerem, quem petébant: Iesum vero trádidit voluntáti eórum. Et cum dúcerent eum, apprehendérunt Simónem quendam Cyrenénsem, veniéntem de villa: et imposuérunt illi crucem portáre post Iesum. Sequebátur autem illum multa turba pópuli, et mulíerum, quæ plangébant et lamentabántur eum. Convérsus autem ad illas Iesus dixit: I. Filiæ Ierúsalem, nolíte flere super me, sed super vos ipsas flete et super fílios vestros. Quóniam ecce vénient dies, in quibus dicent: Beátæ stériles, et veníres, qui non genuérunt, et úbera, quæ non lactavérunt. Tunc incípient dícere móntibus: Cádite super nos; et cóllibus: Operíte nos. Quia si in víridi ligno hæc fáciunt, in árido quid fiet? C. Ducebántur autem et alii duo nequam cum eo, ut interficeréntur. Et postquam venérunt in locum, qui vocátur Calváriæ, ibi crucifixérunt eum: et latrónes, unum a dextris et álterum a sinístris. Iesus autem dicebat: I. Pater, dimítte illis: non enim sciunt, quid fáciunt. C. Dividéntes vero vestiménta eius, misérunt sortes. Et stabat pópulus spectans, et deridébant eum príncipes cum eis, dicéntes: S. Alios salvos fecit: se salvum fáciat, si hic est Christus Dei electus. C. Illudébant autem ei et mílites accedéntes, et acétum offeréntes ei, et dicéntes: S. Si tu es Rex Iudæórum, salvum te fac. C. Erat autem et superscríptio scripta super eum lítteris græcis et latínis et hebráicis: Hic est Rex Iudæórum. Unus autem de his, qui pendébant, latrónibus, blasphemábat eum, dicens: S. Si tu es Christus, salvum fac temetípsum, et nos. C. Respóndens autem alter increpábat eum, dicens: S. Neque tu times Deum, quod in eadem damnatióne es. Et nos quidem iuste, nam digna factis recípimus: hic vero nihil mali gessit. C. Et dicebat ad Iesum: S. Dómine, meménto mei, cum véneris in regnum tuum. C. Et dixit illi Iesus: I. Amen, dico tibi: Hódie mecum eris in paradíso. C. Erat autem fere hora sexta, et ténebræ factæ sunt in univérsam terram usque in horam nonam. Et obscurátus est sol: et velum templi scissum est médium. Et clamans voce magna Iesus, ait: I. Pater, in manus tuas comméndo spíritum meum. C. Et hæc dicens, exspirávit. Hic genuflectitur, et pausatur aliquántulum Videns autem centúrio quod factum fúerat, glorificávit Deum, dicens: S. Vere hic homo iustus erat. C. Et omnis turba eórum, qui simul áderant ad spectáculum istud et vidébant, quæ fiébant, percutiéntes péctora sua revertebántur. Stabant autem omnes noti eius a longe, et mulíeres, quæ secútæ eum erant a Galilaea, hæc vidéntes. Et ecce, vir nómine Ioseph, qui erat decúrio, vir bonus et iustus: hic non consénserat consílio et áctibus eórum, ab Arimathaea civitáte Iudaeæ, qui exspectábat et ipse regnum Dei. Hic accéssit ad Pilátum et pétiit corpus Iesu: et depósitum invólvit síndone, et pósuit eum in monuménto excíso, in quo nondum quisquam pósitus fúerat.

The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke.
Luke 22:1-71; 23:1-53
Now the feast of unleavened bread, which is called the pasch, was at hand. And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might put Jesus to death: but they feared the people. And Satan entered into Judas, who was surnamed Iscariot, one of the twelve. And he went, and discoursed with the chief priests and the magistrates, how he might betray him to them. And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money. And he promised. And he sought opportunity to betray him in the absence of the multitude. And the day of the unleavened bread came, on which it was necessary that the pasch should be killed. And he sent Peter and John, saying: Go, and prepare for us the pasch, that we may eat. But they said: Where wilt thou that we prepare? And he said to them: Behold, as you go into the city, there shall meet you a man carrying a pitcher of water: follow him into the house where he entereth in. And you shall say to the goodman of the house: The master saith to thee, Where is the guest chamber, where I may eat the pasch with my disciples? And he will shew you a large dining room, furnished; and there prepare. And they going, found as he had said to them, and made ready the pasch. And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. And he said to them: With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer. For I say to you, that from this time I will not eat it, till it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. And having taken the chalice, he gave thanks, and said: Take, and divide it among you: For I say to you, that I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, till the kingdom of God come. And taking bread, he gave thanks, and brake; and gave to them, saying: This is my body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of me. In like manner the chalice also, after he had supped, saying: This is the chalice, the new testament in my blood, which shall be shed for you. But yet behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table. And the Son of man indeed goeth, according to that which is determined: but yet, woe to that man by whom he shall be betrayed. And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing. And there was also a strife amongst them, which of them should seem to be the greater. And he said to them: The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and they that have power over them, are called beneficent. But you not so: but he that is the greater among you, let him become as the younger; and he that is the leader, as he that serveth. For which is greater, he that sitteth at table, or he that serveth? Is it not he that sitteth at table? But I am in the midst of you, as he that serveth: And you are they who have continued with me in my temptations: And I dispose to you, as my Father hath disposed to me, a kingdom; That you may eat and drink at my table, in my kingdom: and may sit upon thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And the Lord said: Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and thou, being once converted, confirm thy brethren. Who said to him: Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death. And he said: I say to thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, till thou thrice deniest that thou knowest me. And he said to them: When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, did you want anything? But they said: Nothing. Then said he unto them: But now he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise a scrip; and he that hath not, let him sell his coat, and buy a sword. For I say to you, that this that is written must yet be fulfilled in me: And with the wicked was he reckoned. For the things concerning me have an end. But they said: Lord, behold here are two swords. And he said to them, It is enough. And going out, he went, according to his custom, to the mount of Olives. And his disciples also followed him. And when he was come to the place, he said to them: Pray, lest ye enter into temptation. And he was withdrawn away from them a stone's cast; and kneeling down, he prayed, Saying: Father, if thou wilt, remove this chalice from me: but yet not my will, but thine be done. And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony, he prayed the longer. And his sweat became as drops of blood, trickling down upon the ground. And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow. And he said to them: Why sleep you? arise, pray, lest you enter into temptation. As he was yet speaking, behold a multitude; and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near to Jesus, for to kiss him. And Jesus said to him: Judas, dost thou betray the Son of man with a kiss? And they that were about him, seeing what would follow, said to him: Lord, shall we strike with the sword? And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. But Jesus answering, said: Suffer ye thus far. And when he had touched his ear, he healed him. And Jesus said to the chief priests, and magistrates of the temple, and the ancients, that were come unto him: Are ye come out, as it were against a thief, with swords and clubs? When I was daily with you in the temple, you did not stretch forth your hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness. And apprehending him, they led him to the high priest's house. But Peter followed afar off. And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were sitting about it, Peter was in the midst of them. Whom when a certain servant maid had seen sitting at the light, and had earnestly beheld him, she said: This man also was with him. But he denied him, saying: Woman, I know him not. And after a little while, another seeing him, said: Thou also art one of them. But Peter said: O man, I am not. And after the space, as it were of one hour, another certain man affirmed, saying: Of a truth, this man was also with him; for he is also a Galilean. And Peter said: Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, as he was yet speaking, the cock crew. And the Lord turning looked on Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, as he had said: Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And Peter going out, wept bitterly. And the men that held him, mocked him, and struck him. And they blindfolded him, and smote his face. And they asked him, saying: Prophesy, who is it that struck thee? And blaspheming, many other things they said against him. And as soon as it was day, the ancients of the people, and the chief priests and scribes, cane together; and they brought him into their council, saying: If thou be the Christ, tell us. And he saith to them: If I shall tell you, you will not believe me. And if I shall also ask you, you will not answer me, nor let me go. But hereafter the Son of man shall be sitting on the right hand of the power of God. Then said they all: Art thou then the Son of God? Who said: You say that I am. And they said: What need we any further testimony? for we ourselves have heard it from his own mouth. AND the whole multitude of them rising up, led him to Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying: We have found this man perverting our nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, and saying that he is Christ the king. And Pilate asked him, saying: Art thou the king of the Jews? But he answering, said: Thou sayest it. And Pilate said to the chief priests and to the multitudes: I find no cause in this man. But they were more earnest, saying: He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee to this place. But Pilate hearing Galilee, asked if the man were of Galilee? And when he understood that he was of Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him away to Herod, who was also himself at Jerusalem, in those days. And Herod, seeing Jesus, was very glad; for he was desirous of a long time to see him, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to see some sign wrought by him. And he questioned him in many words. But he answered him nothing. And the chief priests and the scribes stood by, earnestly accusing him. And Herod with his army set him at nought, and mocked him, putting on him a white garment, and sent him back to Pilate. And Herod and Pilate were made friends, that same day; for before they were enemies one to another. And Pilate, calling together the chief priests, and the magistrates, and the people, Said to them: You have presented unto me this man, as one that perverteth the people; and behold I, having examined him before you, find no cause in this man, in those things wherein you accuse him. No, nor Herod neither. For I sent you to him, and behold, nothing worthy of death is done to him. I will chastise him therefore, and release him. Now of necessity he was to release unto them one upon the feast day. But the whole multitude together cried out, saying: Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas: Who, for a certain sedition made in the city, and for a murder, was cast into prison. And Pilate again spoke to them, desiring to release Jesus. But they cried again, saying: Crucify him, crucify him. And he said to them the third time: Why, what evil hath this man done? I find no cause of death in him. I will chastise him therefore, and let him go. But they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified; and their voices prevailed. And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required. And he released unto them him who for murder and sedition, had been cast into prison, whom they had desired; but Jesus he delivered up to their will. And as they led him away, they laid hold of one Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country; and they laid the cross on him to carry after Jesus. And there followed him a great multitude of people, and of women, who bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turning to them, said: Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not over me; but weep for yourselves, and for your children. For behold, the days shall come, wherein they will say: Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that have not borne, and the paps that have not given suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains: Fall upon us; and to the hills: Cover us. For if in the green wood they do these things, what shall be done in the dry? And there were also two other malefactors led with him to be put to death. And when they were come to the place which is called Calvary, they crucified him there; and the robbers, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. And Jesus said: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. But they, dividing his garments, cast lots. And the people stood beholding, and the rulers with them derided him, saying: He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the elect of God. And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar, And saying: If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. And there was also a superscription written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. And one of those robbers who were hanged, blasphemed him, saying: If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering, rebuked him, saying: Neither dost thou fear God, seeing thou art condemned under the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done no evil. And he said to Jesus: Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy kingdom. And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise. And it was almost the sixth hour; and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And Jesus crying out with a loud voice, said: Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit. And saying this, he gave up the ghost. Here kneel, and pause
a few moments.
Now the centurion, seeing what was done, glorified God, saying: Indeed this was a just man. And all the multitude of them that were come together to that sight, and saw the things that were done, returned striking their breasts. And all his acquaintance, and the women that had followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things. And behold there was a man named Joseph, who was a counsellor, a good and just man, The same had not consented to their counsel and doings; of Arimathea, a city of Judea; who also himself looked for the kingdom of God. This man went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. And taking him down, he wrapped him in fine linen, and laid him in a sepulchre that was hewed in stone, wherein never yet any man had been laid.

Offertorium
Deinde osculatur Altare, et versus ad populum, dicit:
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spíritu tuo.
Postea dicit: Orémus, et Offertorium.
Orémus
Ps 101:2-3.
Dómine, exáudi oratiónem meam, et clamor meus ad te pervéniat: ne avértas fáciem tuam a me.
14
Offertory
The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says:
P. The Lord be with you.
S. And with thy spirit.
After saluting the people once more, the priest enters upon the Sacrifice of the Mass proper and urges the faithful to pray with him.
Let us pray.
Ps 101:2-3
Hear, O Lord, my prayer: and let my cry come to thee. Turn not away thy face from me.
Quo dicto. si est Missa sollemnis, Diaconus porrigit Celebranti Patenam cum Hostia: si privata, Sacerdos ipse accipit Patenam cum Hostia, quam offerens, dicit:
Suscipe, sancte Pater, omnipotens ætérne Deus, hanc immaculátam hóstiam, quam ego indígnus fámulus tuus óffero tibi Deo meo vivo et vero, pro innumerabílibus peccátis, et offensiónibus, et neglegéntiis meis, et pro ómnibus circumstántibus, sed et pro ómnibus fidélibus christiánis vivis atque defúnctis: ut mihi, et illis profíciat ad salútem in vitam ætérnam. Amen.
15
Then the priest reads the Offertory-verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says:
Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen.
Deinde faciens crucem cum eadem Patena, deponit Hostiam super Corporale. Diaconus ministrat vinum, Subdiaconus aquam in Calice: vel si privata est Missa, utrumque infundií Sacerdos, et aquam miscendam in Calice benedicit signo crucis, dicens:
Deus, qui humánæ substántiæ dignitátem mirabíliter condidísti, et mirabílius reformásti: da nobis per huius aquæ et vini mystérium, eius divinitátis esse consórtes, qui humanitátis nostræ fíeri dignátus est párticeps, Iesus Christus, Fílius tuus, Dóminus noster: Qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti Deus: per ómnia saecula sæculórum. Amen.
16
Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier's lance.
O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen.
Postea accipit Calicem, et offert dicens:
Offérimus tibi, Dómine, cálicem salutáris, tuam deprecántes cleméntiam: ut in conspéctu divínæ maiestátis tuæ, pro nostra et totíus mundi salute, cum odóre suavitátis ascéndat. Amen.
Deinde facit signum crucis cum Calice, et illum ponit super Corporale, et Palla cooperit: tum, iunctis manibus super Altare, aliquantulum inclinatus, dicit:
In spíritu humilitátis et in ánimo contríto suscipiámur a te, Dómine: et sic fiat sacrifícium nostrum in conspéctu tuo hódie, ut pláceat tibi, Dómine Deus.
Erectus expandit manus, easque in altum porrectas iungens, elevátis ad coelum oculis et statim demissis, dicit:
Veni, sanctificátor omnípotens ætérne Deus: Benedicit Oblata, prosequendo: et bene dic hoc sacrifícium, tuo sancto nómini præparátum.
17
Then the priest takes the chalice, and offers it, saying:
We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen.
The priest makes the Sign of the Cross with the chalice, places it upon the corporal, and covers it with the pall. Then, with his hands joined upon the Altar, and slightly bowing down, he says:
Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God.
Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.
Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name.
Sacerdos lavat manus, dicens:
Ps. 25, 6-12.
Lavábo inter innocéntes manus meas: et circúmdabo altáre tuum. Dómine: Ut áudiam vocem laudis, et enárrem univérsa mirabília tua. Dómine, diléxi decórem domus tuæ et locum habitatiónis glóriæ tuæ. Ne perdas cum ímpiis, Deus, ánimam meam, et cum viris sánguinum vitam meam: In quorum mánibus iniquitátes sunt: déxtera eórum repléta est munéribus. Ego autem in innocéntia mea ingréssus sum: rédime me et miserére mei. Pes meus stetit in dirécto: in ecclésiis benedícam te, Dómine.
18
The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice.
Psalm 25. 6-12
I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord.
Deinde, aliquantulum inclinatus in medio Altaris, iunctis manibus super eo, dicit:
Súscipe, sancta Trinitas, hanc oblatiónem, quam tibi offérimus ob memóriam passiónis, resurrectiónis, et ascensiónis Iesu Christi, Dómini nostri: et in honórem beátæ Maríæ semper Vírginis, et beáti Ioannis Baptistæ, et sanctórum Apostolórum Petri et Pauli, et istórum et ómnium Sanctórum: ut illis profíciat ad honórem, nobis autem ad salútem: et illi pro nobis intercédere dignéntur in coelis, quorum memóriam ágimus in terris. Per eúndem Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
19
Bowing down before the middle of the alter, the priest, with joined hands, says:
Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
Postea osculatur Altare, et versus ad populum extendens, et iungens manus, voce paululum elevata, dicit:
S. Oráte, fratres: ut meum ac vestrum sacrifícium acceptábile fiat apud Deum Patrem omnipoténtem.
Minister, seu circumstantes respondent: alioquin ipsemet Sacerdos:
M. Suscípiat Dóminus sacrifícium de mánibus tuis vel meis ad laudem et glóriam nominis sui, ad utilitátem quoque nostram, totiúsque Ecclésiæ suæ sanctæ.
Sacerdos submissa voce dicit:
S. Amen.
Deinde, manibus extensis, absolute sine Orémus subiungit Orationes secretas.

Secreta
Súscipe, quaesumus, Dómine, munus oblátum, et dignánter operáre: ut, quod passiónis Fílii tui, Dómini nostri, mystério gérimus, piis afféctibus consequámur.
Per eundem Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum filium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum.
R. Amen.
20
The priest kisses the altar and, turning towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, says audibly:
P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty.
The server answers:
S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.
The priest answers in a low voice:
P. Amen.
Then, with outstretched hands, he recites the Secret Prayers, not beginning with Oremus. The Secret Prayers vary with the Mass, and are found in the Mass of the Day. These being finished, the priest says or sings: P. World without end. S. Amen.

Secret
Accept, we beseech thee, O Lord, the gift we offer; and graciously effect, that what we celebrate in mystery of the Passion of thy Son, we may by holy duspositions obtain.
Through the same Jesus Christ, thy Son, Our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
R. Amen.
Prefatio
Quibus finitis, cum pervenerit ad conclusionem, clara voce dicit: Per ómnia saecula sæculórum, cum Præfatione, ut in sequentibus.

Iungit eas ante pectus, et caput inclinat, cum dicit: Grátias agamus Dómino, Deo nostro. Deinde disiungit manus, et disiunctas tenet usque ad finem Præfationis: qua finita, iterum iungit eas, et inclinatus dicit: Sanctus.

Vere dignum et iustum est, æquum et salutáre, nos tibi semper et ubíque grátias ágere: Dómine sancte, Pater omnípotens, ætérne Deus: Qui salútem humáni géneris in ligno Crucis constituísti: ut, unde mors oriebátur, inde vita resúrgeret: et, qui in ligno vincébat, in ligno quoque vincerétur: per Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Per quem maiestátem tuam laudant Angeli, adórant Dominatiónes, tremunt Potestátes. Coeli coelorúmque Virtútes ac beáta Séraphim sócia exsultatióne concélebrant. Cum quibus et nostras voces ut admítti iúbeas, deprecámur, súpplici confessióne dicéntes:

Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus Dóminus, Deus Sábaoth. Pleni sunt coeli et terra glória tua. Hosánna in excélsis. Benedíctus, qui venit in nómine Dómini. Hosánna in excélsis.

Preface
The priest begins the preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with inportant Feasts. There are at the present time 15 different prefaces which are given in the Ordinary of the Mass. The priest begins the Preface, holding his hands over the altar:
P. The Lord be with you.
S. And with thy spirit.
P. Lift up your hearts.
S. We have lifted them up to the Lord.
P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
S. It is meet and just.

Holy Cross
It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God; Who didst establish the salvation of mankind on the tree of the Cross; that whence death came, thence also life might arise again, and that he, who overcame by the tree, by the tree also might be overcome: Through Christ our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with these we entreat Thee that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted while we say with lowly praise:

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Sabaoth! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!

HOC EST ENIM CORPUS MEUM.

Quibus verbis prolatis, statim Hostiam consecratam genuflexus adorat: surgit, ostendit populo, reponit super Corporale, et genuflexus iterum adorat: nec amplius pollices et indices disiungit, nisi quando Hostia tractanda est, usque ad ablutionem digitorum.

Qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti Deus.
Aliam mediam partem, quam in sinistra manu habet, adiungit mediæ super Patenam positæ, et particulam parvam dextera retinens super Calicem, quem sinistra per nodum infra cuppam tenet, dicit intellegibili voce vel cantat:

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord.
He puts the Part which is in his right hand upon the paten, and breaks a Particle from the other Part in his left hand, saying:

Particulam ipsam immittit in Calicem, dicens secrete:
Haec commíxtio, et consecrátio Córporis et Sánguinis Dómini nostri Iesu Christi, fiat accipiéntibus nobis in vitam ætérnam. Amen.

Deinde, iunctis manibus super Altare, inclinatus dicit secrete sequentes Orationes:
Dómine Iesu Christe, qui dixísti Apóstolis tuis: Pacem relínquo vobis, pacem meam do vobis: ne respícias peccáta mea, sed fidem Ecclésiæ tuæ; eámque secúndum voluntátem tuam pacifícáre et coadunáre dignéris: Qui vivis et regnas Deus per ómnia saecula sæculórum. Amen.
41
With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers:
O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen.
Dómine Iesu Christe, Fili Dei vivi, qui ex voluntáte Patris, cooperánte Spíritu Sancto, per mortem tuam mundum vivificásti: líbera me per hoc sacrosánctum Corpus et Sánguinem tuum ab ómnibus iniquitátibus meis, et univérsis malis: et fac me tuis semper inhærére mandátis, et a te numquam separári permíttas: Qui cum eódem Deo Patre et Spíritu Sancto vivis et regnas Deus in saecula sæculórum. Amen.
O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.
Percéptio Córporis tui, Dómine Iesu Christe, quod ego indígnus súmere præsúmo, non mihi provéniat in iudícium et condemnatiónem: sed pro tua pietáte prosit mihi ad tutaméntum mentis et córporis, et ad medélam percipiéndam: Qui vivis et regnas cum Deo Patre in unitáte Spíritus Sancti Deus, per ómnia saecula sæculórum. Amen.
Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen.
Genuflectit, surgit, et dicit:
Panem coeléstem accipiam, et nomen Dómini invocábo.
Deinde parum inclinatus, accipit ambas partes Hostiæ inter pollicem et indicem sinistræ manus, et Patenam inter eundem indicem et medium supponit, et dextera tribus vicibus percutiens pectus, elata aliquantulum voce, ter dicit devote et humiliter:
V. Dómine, non sum dignus, Et secrete prosequitur: ut intres sub tectum meum: sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea
V. Dómine, non sum dignus, Et secrete prosequitur: ut intres sub tectum meum: sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea.
V. Dómine, non sum dignus, Et secrete prosequitur: ut intres sub tectum meum: sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea.
44
The priest genuflects, rises and says:
I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord.
Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand, and the paten between the same forefinger and the middle one; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says three times devoutly and humbly:
V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.
V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.
V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.
Postea dextera se signans cum Hostia super Patenam, dicit:
Corpus Dómini nostri Iesu Christi custódiat ánimam meam in vitam ætérnam. Amen.
Et se inclinans, reverenter sumit ambas partes Hostiæ: quibus sumptis, deponit Patenam super Corporale, et erigens se iungit manus, et quiescit aliquantulum in meditatione Sanctissimi Sacramenti.
45
Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:
The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen.
He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time.
Deinde discooperit Calicem, genuflectit, colligit fragmenta, si quæ sint, extergit Patenam super Calicem, interim dicens:
Quid retríbuam Dómino pro ómnibus, quæ retríbuit mihi? Cálicem salutáris accípiam, et nomen Dómini invocábo. Laudans invocábo Dóminum, et ab inimícis meis salvus ero.
Accipit Calicem manu dextera, et eo se signans, dicit:
Sanguis Dómini nostri Iesu Christi custódiat ánimam meam in vitam ætérnam. Amen.
Et sinistra supponens Patenam Calici, reverenter sumit totum Sanguinem cum particula. Quo sumpto, si qui sunt communicandi, eos communicet, antequam se purificet
46
Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:
What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:
The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen.
Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Postea dicit:
Quod ore súmpsimus, Dómine, pura mente capiámus: et de munere temporáli fiat nobis remédium sempitérnum.
Interim porrigit Calicem ministro, qui infundit in eo parum vini, quo se purificat: deinde prosequitur:
Corpus tuum, Dómine, quod sumpsi, et Sanguis, quem potávi, adhaereat viscéribus meis: et præsta; ut in me non remáneat scélerum mácula, quem pura et sancta refecérunt sacraménta: Qui vivis et regnas in saecula sæculórum. Amen.
Abluit et extergit digitos, ac sumit ablutionem: extergit os et Calicem, quem, plicato Corporali, operit et collocat in Altari ut prius: deinde prosequitur Missam.
48
The priest says silently:
Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy.
Then he holds out the Chalice to the server -- in Solemn Masses to the deacon -- who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:
May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.
The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass, and goes to the right side of the altar to say the prayers from the Missal.
Communio
Ps 10:13 et 14.
Potum meum cum fletu temperábam: quia élevans allisísti me: et ego sicut fænum árui: tu autem, Dómine, in ætérnum pérmanes: tu exsúrgens miseréberis Sion, quia venit tempus miseréndi eius.
49
Communion
Ps 101:13; 101:14
I mingled my drink with weeping: for having lifted me up, tho hast thrown me down, and I am withered like grass. But thou, O Lord, remainest forever, thou shalt arise, and have mercy on Sion, for the time is come, to have mercy on it.

Qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus per omnia saecula saeculorum.
R. Amen.

Post Communion
The priest kisses the altar. Then he turns to the people, and says or sings:
P. The Lord be with you.
S. And with thy spirit.
Let us pray.
Grant to us, almighty God, to feel that through the temporal death of thy Son which these venerable mysteries testify, we have assurance, that thou hast given us eternal life.
Through the same Jesus Christ, thy Son, Our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
R. Amen.


Prayer over the people
Let us pray.
Bow your heads to God.
Look down we beseech thee, O Lord, on this thy family on whose sake our Lord jesus Christ refused not to yield himself into the hands of the wicked and to suffer the torments of the cross.
Who livest and reignest with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.
R. Amen
Conclusio
Dicto, post ultimam Orationem,
S. Dóminus vobíscum.
M. Et cum spíritu tuo,
dicit pro Missæ qualitate, vel Ite, Missa est, vel Benedicámus Dómino. Deo grátias.
51
Conclusion
He turns to the people and says:
P. The Lord be with you.
S. And with thy spirit.
V. Ite, Missa est.
R. Deo gratias.
52
V. Go, the Mass is ended.
R. Thanks be to God.
Pláceat tibi, sancta Trínitas, obséquium servitútis meæ: et præsta; ut sacrifícium, quod óculis tuæ maiestátis indígnus óbtuli, tibi sit acceptábile, mihíque et ómnibus, pro quibus illud óbtuli, sit, te miseránte, propitiábile. Per Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Deinde osculatur Altare: et elevatis oculis, extendens, elevans et iungens manus, caputque Cruci inclínans, dicit:
Benedícat vos omnípotens Deus,
et versus ad populum, semel tantum benedícens, etiam in Missis sollemnibus; In Missa Pontificali ter benedicitur, ut in Pontificali habetur. Deinde prosequitur:
Pater, et Fílius, et Spíritus Sanctus.
R. Amen.
54
He kisses the altar, and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:
P. May almighty God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

bless you.
S. Amen.
Deinde Sacerdos in cornu Evangelii, iunctis manibus dicit:
Et signans signo crucis primum Altare vel librum, deinde se in fronte, ore et pectore, dicit:
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
Initium sancti Evangélii secúndum Ioánnem.
R. Gloria tibi, Domine!
Ioann. 1, 1-14.
Iunctis manibus prosequitur:
In princípio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum. Hoc erat in princípio apud Deum. Omnia per ipsum facta sunt: et sine ipso factum est nihil, quod factum est: in ipso vita erat, et vita erat lux hóminum: et lux in ténebris lucet, et ténebræ eam non comprehendérunt.
Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen erat Ioánnes. Hic venit in testimónium, ut testimónium perhibéret de lúmine, ut omnes créderent per illum. Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimónium perhibéret de lúmine.
Erat lux vera, quæ illúminat omnem hóminem veniéntem in hunc mundum. In mundo erat, et mundus per ipsum factus est, et mundus eum non cognóvit. In própria venit, et sui eum non recepérunt. Quotquot autem recepérunt eum, dedit eis potestátem fílios Dei fíeri, his, qui credunt in nómine eius: qui non ex sanguínibus, neque ex voluntáte carnis, neque ex voluntáte viri, sed ex Deo nati sunt. Genuflectit dicens: Et Verbum caro factum est, Et surgens prosequitur: et habitávit in nobis: et vídimus glóriam eius, glóriam quasi Unigéniti a Patre, plenum grátiæ et veritatis.
R. Deo gratias.
Finito Evangelio sancti Ioannis, discedens ab Altari, pro gratiarum actione dicit Ant. Trium puerórum, cum reliquis, ut habetur in principio Missalis.
55
Then turning to the Gospel side of the altar, the priest says:
He then traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
The beginning of the holy Gospel according to John.
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Joann. 1, 1-14.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he was to testify concerning the Light.
That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. Here all kneel. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
R. Thanks be to God.

Amen.
