Ante Missam


Incipit
Sacerdos paratus cum ingreditur ad Altare, facta illi debita reverentia, signat se signo crucis a fronte ad pectus, et clara voce dicit:
In nómine Patris, et Fílii, et Spíritus Sancti. Amen.
2
Beginning
The priest, bowing down at the foot of the altar, makes the Sign of the Cross, from his forehead to his breast, and says:
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Deinde, iunctis manibus ante pectus, incipit Antiphonam:
S. Introíbo ad altáre Dei.
M. Ad Deum, qui lætíficat iuventútem meam.
Postea alternatim cum Ministris dicit sequentem
Ps. 42, 1-5.
S. Iúdica me, Deus, et discérne causam meam de gente non sancta: ab hómine iníquo et dolóso érue me.
M. Quia tu es, Deus, fortitudo mea: quare me reppulísti, et quare tristis incédo, dum afflígit me inimícus?
S. Emítte lucem tuam et veritátem tuam: ipsa me deduxérunt, et adduxérunt in montem sanctum tuum et in tabernácula tua.
M. Et introíbo ad altáre Dei: ad Deum, qui lætíficat iuventútem meam.
S. Confitébor tibi in cíthara, Deus, Deus meus: quare tristis es, ánima mea, et quare contúrbas me?
M. Spera in Deo, quóniam adhuc confitébor illi: salutáre vultus mei, et Deus meus.
S. Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto.
M. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper: et in saecula sæculórum. Amen.
Sacerdos repetit Antiphonam:
S. Introíbo ad altáre Dei.
M. Ad Deum, qui lætíficat iuventútem meam.
3
Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem:
P. I will go in unto the altar of God.
S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.
The priest alternates with the server in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.
Ps. 42, 1-5.
P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.
S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?
P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles.
S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth.
P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me?
S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God.
P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
The priest repeats the Anthem:
P. I will go in unto the altar of God.
S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.
Signat se, dicens:
V. Adiutórium nostrum in nómine Dómini.
R. Qui fecit coelum et terram.
Deinde iunctis manibus profunde inclinatus facit Confessionem.
Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Ioánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et vobis, fratres: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Percutit sibi pectus ter, dicens: mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Ioánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et vos, fratres, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.
M. Misereátur tui omnípotens Deus, et, dimíssis peccátis tuis, perdúcat te ad vitam ætérnam.
Sacerdos dicit:
S. Amen,
et erigit se. Deinde Ministri repetunt Confessionem: et ubi a Sacerdote dicebatur vobis, fratres, et vos, fratres, a Ministris dicitur tibi, pater, et te, pater.
M. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Ioánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Ioánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.
Postea Sacerdos, iunctis manibus, facit absolutionem, dicens:
S. Misereátur nostri vestri omnípotens Deus, et, dimíssis peccátis nostris vestris , perdúcat nos vos ad vitam ætérnam.
R. Amen.
Signat se signo crucis, dicens:
S. Indulgéntiam, absolutionem et remissiónem peccatórum nostrórum tríbuat nobis omnípotens et miséricors Dóminus.
R. Amen.

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says:
P. Our help is in the Name of the Lord.
S. Who made heaven and earth.
Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor:
P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice. through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me.
S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life.
The priest answers:
S. Amen.
The server says the Confiteor.
S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me.
Then the priest, with his hands joined, says:
P. May almighty God be merciful to us thee , and forgiving thy sins, bring us thee to everlasting life.
S. Amen.

P. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.
S. Amen.
Et inclinatus prosequitur:

R. Et plebs tua lætábitur in te.
V. Osténde nobis, Dómine, misericórdiam tuam.
R. Et salutáre tuum da nobis.
V. Dómine, exáudi oratiónem meam.
R. Et clamor meus ad te véniat.
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spíritu tuo.
Et extendens ac iungens manus, clara voce dicit:
Orémus, ei ascendens ad Altare, dicit secreto:
Aufer a nobis, quaesumus, Dómine, iniquitátes nostras: ut ad Sancta sanctórum puris mereámur méntibus introíre. Per Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
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.

Bowing down, he proceeds:
P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us.
S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee.
P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy.
S. And grant us Thy salvation.
P. O Lord, hear my prayer.
S. And let my cry come before Thee.
P. The Lord be with you.
S. And with thy spirit.
First extending, then joining his hands, the priest says audibly Let us pray then ascending to the altar, he says secretly:
Let us pray.
Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
His hands joined, and bowing down over the altar, the priest says:
We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, He kisses the sacred stone whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

Gloria
Postea in medio Altaris extendens et iungens manus, caputque aliquantulum inclínans, dicit, si dicendum est, Glória in excélsis Deo, !et prosequitur iunctis manibus. Cum dicit Adorámus te, Grátias agimus tibi, et Iesu Christe, et Suscipe deprecatiónem, inclinat caput; et in fine dicens: Cum Sancto Spíritu, signat se a fronte ad pectus.

Cum Sancto Spíritu in glória Dei Patris. Amen.

Gloria
Afterwards, standing at the middle of the altar, extending and then joining his hands,and bowing slightly, the priest says -- except during Lent and Advent and in Masses for the Dead -- the Gloria in excelsis. When he says the words: We adore Thee, We give Thee thanks; Jesus Christ; and Receive our prayer, he bows, and at the end he signs himself with the Sign of the Cross from forehead to breast:
Glory be to God on high, and on earth peace to men of good will. We praise Thee. We bless Thee. We adore Thee. We glorify Thee. We give Thee thanks for Thy great glory. O Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father almighty. O Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son. O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father. Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Who takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayer. Who sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For Thou only are holy. Thou only art the Lord. Thou only art most high, O Jesus Christ. Together with the Holy Ghost in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
Oratio
Deinde osculatur Altare in medio, et versus ad populum dicit:
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
Postea dicit: Orémus, et Orationes, unam aut plures, ut ordo Officii postulat. Sequitur Epistola, Graduale, Tractus, vel Allelúia cum Versu, aut Sequentia, prout Tempus aut qualitas Missæ postulat.
Orémus.
Omnípotens et miséricors Deus, qui beátam Ioánnam Francíscam, tuo amóre succénsam, admirábili spíritus fortitúdine per omnes vitæ sémitas in via perfectiónis donásti, quique per illam illustráre Ecclésiam tuam nova prole voluísti: eius méritis et précibus concéde; ut, qui infirmitátis nostræ cónscii de tua virtúte confídimus, coeléstis grátiæ auxílio cuncta nobis adversántia vincámus.
Per 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:
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
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.
Almighty and merciful God, Who endowed St. Jane Frances, burning with love of You, with a wondrous strength of spirit through all the paths of life in the way of perfection, and willed through her to ennoble Your Church by a new religious family; grant by her merits and prayers, that we who are aware of our weakness, may trust firmly in Your power and, by the assistance of divine grace, overcome all obstacles in our way.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.
Lectio
Léctio libri Sapiéntiæ.
Prov 31:10-31
Mulíerem fortem quis invéniet? Procul et de últimis fínibus prétium eius. Confídit in ea cor viri sui, et spóliis non indigébit. Reddet ei bonum, et non malum, ómnibus diébus vitæ suæ. Quæsívit lanam et linum, et operáta est consílio mánuum suárum. Facta est quasi navis institóris, de longe portans panem suum. Et de nocte surréxit, dedítque prædam domésticis suis, et cibária ancíllis suis. Considerávit agrum, et emit eum: de fructu mánuum suárum plantávit víneam. Accínxit fortitúdine lumbos suos, et roborávit bráchium suum. Gustávit, et vidit, quia bona est negotiátio eius: non exstinguétur in nocte lucérna eius. Manum suam misit ad fórtia, et dígiti eius apprehénderent fusum. Manum suam apéruit ínopi, et palmas suas exténdit ad páuperem. Non timébit dómui suæ a frigóribus nivis: omnes enim doméstici eius vestíti sunt duplícibus. Stragulátam vestem fecit sibi: byssus et púrpura induméntum eius. Nóbilis in portis vir eius, quando séderit cum senatóribus terræ. Síndonem fecit et véndidit, et cíngulum tradidit Chananaeo. Fortitúdo et decor induméntum eius, et ridébit in die novíssimo. Os suum apéruit sapiéntiæ, et lex cleméntiæ in lingua eius. Considerávit sémitas domus suæ, et panem otiósa non comédit. Surrexérunt fílii eius, et beatíssimam prædicavérunt: vir eius, et laudávit eam. Multæ fíliæ congregavérunt divítias, tu supergréssa es univérsas. Fallax grátia, et vana est pulchritúdo: mulier timens Dóminum, ipsa laudábitur. Date ei de fructu mánuum suárum, et laudent eam in portis ópera eius.
R. Deo gratias

Lesson
Lesson from the book of Proverbs
Prov 31:10-31
When one finds a worthy wife, her value is far beyond pearls. Her husband, entrusting his heart to her, has an unfailing prize. She brings him good, and not evil, all the days of her life. She obtains wool and flax and makes cloth with skillful hands. Like merchant ships, she secures her provisions from afar. She rises while it is still night, and distributes food to her household. She picks out a field to purchase; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. She is girt about with strength, and sturdy are her arms. She enjoys the success of her dealings; at night her lamp is undimmed. She puts her hands to the distaff, and her fingers ply the spindle. She reaches out her hands to the poor, and extends her arms to the needy. She fears not the snow for her household; all her charges are doubly clothed. She makes her own coverlets; fine linen and purple are her clothing. Her husband is prominent at the city gates as he sits with the elders of the land. She makes garments and sells them, and stocks the merchants with belts. She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs at the days to come. She opens her mouth in wisdom, and on her tongue is kindly counsel. She watches the conduct of her household, and eats not her food in idleness. Her children rise up and praise her; her husband, too, extols her: Many are the women of proven worth, but you have excelled them all. Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting; the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her a reward of her labors, and let her works praise her at the city gates.
R. Thanks be to God.
Graduale
Ps 44:3; 44:5
Diffúsa est grátia in labiis tuis: proptérea benedíxit te Deus in ætérnum.
V. Propter veritátem et mansuetúdinem et iustítiam: et de ducet te mirabíliter déxtera tua. Allelúia, allelúia.
Ps 44:5
Spécie tua et pulchritúdine tua inténde, próspere procéde et regna. Allelúia.
11
Gradual
Ps 44:3, 5.
Grace is poured out upon your lips; thus God has blessed you forever.
V. In the cause of truth and mercy and for the sake of justice: may your right hand show you wondrous deeds. Alleluia, alleluia.
Ps 44.5
V. In your splendor and your beauty ride on triumphant, and reign. Alleluia.
Evangelium
Si vero Sacerdos sine Diacono et Subdiacono celebrat, de-lato libro ad aliud cornu Altaris, inclinatus in medio, iunctis manibus dicit:
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.
Iube, Dómine, benedícere. Dóminus sit in corde meo et in lábiis meis: ut digne et competénter annúntiem Evangélium suum. Amen.
Deinde, conversus ad librum, iunctis manibus, dicit:
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spíritu tuo.
Et pronuntians: Inítium, sive Sequéntia sancti Evangélii, signat librum, et se in fronte, ore et pectore, et legit Evangelium, ut dictum est. Quo finito, respondet Minister: Laus tibi, Christe, et Sacerdos osculatur Evangelium, dicens: per evangelica dicta, ut supra.
Sequéntia sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthaeum.
R. Gloria tibi Domine!
Matth 13:44-52
In illo témpore: Dixit Iesus discípulis suis parábolam hanc: Símile est regnum coelórum thesáuro abscóndito in agro: quem qui invénit homo, abscóndit, et præ gáudio illíus vadit, et vendit univérsa, quæ habet, et emit agrum illum. Iterum símile est regnum coelórum homini negotiatóri, quærénti bonas margarítas. Invénta autem una pretiósa margaríta, ábiit, et véndidit ómnia, quæ hábuit, et emit eam. Iterum símile est regnum coelórum sagénæ, missæ in mare et ex omni génere píscium cóngreganti. Quam, cum impléta esset educéntes, et secus litus sedéntes, elegérunt bonos in vasa, malos autem foras misérunt. Sic erit in consummatióne saeculi: exíbunt Angeli, et separábunt malos de médio iustórum, et mittent eos in camínum ignis: ibi erit fletus et stridor déntium. Intellexístis hæc ómnia? Dicunt ei: Etiam. Ait illis: Ideo omnis scriba doctus in regno coelórum símilis est hómini patrifamílias, qui profert de thesáuro suo nova et vétera.
R. Laus tibi, Christe!
S. Per Evangelica dicta, deleantur nostra delicta.

Gospel
The Missal is transferred to the other side of the altar to symbolize that the divine favor was taken away from the unfaithful Jews and given to the Gentiles. At Low Masses, the priest, bowing down at the middle of the altar, with his hands joined, says:
Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen.

P. The Lord be with you.
S. And with thy spirit.
Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Matt 13:44-52
At that time, Jesus spoke this parable to His disciples: The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden is a field; he who finds it hides it, and in his joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls. When he finds a single pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net cast into the sea that gathered in fish of every kind. When it was filled, they hauled it out, and sitting down on the beach, they gathered the good fish into vessels, but threw away the bad. So will it be at the end of the world. The angels will go out and separate the wicked from among the just, and will cast them into the furnace of fire, where there will be the weeping, and the gnashing of teeth. Have you understood all these things? They said to Him, Yes. And He said to them, So then, every Scribe instructed in the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings forth from his storeroom things new and old.
R. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
S. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Offertorium
Deinde osculatur Altare, et versus ad populum, dicit:
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spíritu tuo.
Postea dicit: Orémus, et Offertorium.
Orémus
Ps 44:3
Diffúsa est grátia in lábiis tuis: proptérea benedíxit te Deus in ætérnum, et in saeculum saeculi, allelúia.
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 44:3
Grace is poured out upon your lips; thus God has blessed you forever, and for ages of ages.
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.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculórum. Amen
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.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
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.

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
Illo nos amóris igne, quaesumus. Dómine, hæc hóstia salutáris inflámmet: quo beátæ Ioannæ Francíscæ cor veheménter incéndit, et flammis adússit ætérnæ caritátis.
Per 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
O Lord, may this sacrificial gift enkindle in us that fire of love which burned so warmly in the heart of St. Jane Frances and consumed it by the flames of everlasting charity.

R. Amen.
Prefatio
Quibus finitis, cum pervenerit ad conclusionem, clara voce dicit: Per ómnia saecula sæculórum, cum Præfatione, ut in sequentibus. Præfationem incipit ambabus manibus positis hinc inde super Altare: quas aliquantulum elevat, cum dicit: Sursum corda. 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.

It is truly meet and just, and profitable unto salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks to thee, O Holy Lord, Father Almighty, eternal God, through Christ, our Lord. Though whom the angels praise thy majesty, the dominions adore it, the powers are in awe. Which the heavens and the hosts of heaven together with the blessed seraphim joyfully do magnify. And do thou command that it be permitted to us join with them in confessing thee, 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!

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.
Communio


Anima Christi, sanctifica me. Corpus Christi, salva me. Sanguis Christi, inebria me. Aqua lateris Christi, lava me. Passio Christi, conforta me. O bone Iesu, exaudi me. Intra tua vulnera absconde me. Ne permittas me separari a te. Ab hoste maligno defende me. In hora mortis meae voca me. Et iube me venire ad te, Ut cum Sanctis tuis laudem te. In saecula saeculorum. Amen.
47
Communio


Soul of Christ, sanctify me. Body of Christ, save me. Blood of Christ, inebriate me. Water from Christ's side, wash me. Passion of Christ, strengthen me. O good Jesus, hear me. Within Thy wounds hide me. Suffer me not to be separated from Thee. From the malicious enemy defend me. In the hour of my death call me. And bid me come unto Thee. That I may praise Thee with Thy saints. and with Thy angels, Forever and ever. Amen.
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.

Spíritum nobis, Dómine, tuæ caritátis infúnde: ut, quos coeléstis panis virtúte satiásti, beáta Ioánna Francisca intercedénte, fácias terréna despícere, et te solum Deum pura mente sectári.

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.
Pour upon us, O Lord, the spirit of Your love, that You Who have filled us with the strength of heavenly bread, may through the intercession of blessed Jane Frances, make us look upon the things of the world as nought and with pure minds seek You, the only God.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.

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.
