Communio


Si qui sunt communicandi in Missa, Sacerdos post sumptionem Sanguinis, antequam se purificet, facta genuflexione, ponat particulas consecratas in Pyxide, vel, si pauci sint communicandi, super Patenam, nisi a principio positae fuerint in Pyxide seu alio Calice. Interim minister ante eos extendit linteum seu velum album, et pro eis facit Confessionem dicens:
M. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni 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 Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.
Sacerdos iterum genuflectit, et manibus junctis vertens se ad populum in cornu Evangelii, dicit:
S. Misereátur vestri omnípotens Deus, et, dimíssis peccátis vestris, perdúcat vos ad vitam ætérnam.
R. Amen.
S. Indulgéntiam, absolutionem et remissiónem peccatórum nostrórum tríbuat nobis omnípotens et miséricors Dóminus.
R. Amen.
et manu dextera facit signum crucis super eos. Postea genuflectens, accipit manu sinistra Pyxidem seu Patenam cum Sacramento, dextera vero sumit unam particulam, quam inter pollicem et indicem tenet aliquantulum elevatam super Pyxidem seu Patenam, et conversus adcommunicandos in medio Altaris, dicit:
S. Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce, qui tollit peccáta mundi.
Deinde dicit:
S. Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea.
S. Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea.
S. Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea.
Quibus verbis tertio repetitis, accedit ad eorum dexteram, hoc est, ad latus Epistolæ, et unicuique porrigit Sacramentum faciens cum eo signum crucis super Pyxidem vel Patenam, et simul dicens:
S. Corpus Dómini nostri Jesu Christi custódiat ánimam tuam in vitam ætérnam. Amen.
Omnibus communicatis, revertitur ad Altare, nihil dicens: et non dat eis benedictionem, quia illam daturus est in fine Missæ. Si particulæ positae erant super Corporale, extergit illud cum Patena, et si qua in eo fuerint fragmenta, in Calicem immittit.
If Holy Communion is to be distributed, the server says the Confiteor. [This was omitted in the 1962 Missal.]
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, (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, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me.
After which the priest communicates those who are to communicate, if there be any, saying:
P. May almighty God have mercy upon you, forgive you your sins, and bring you unto life everlasting.
S. Amen.
Making the Sign of the Cross, he continues:
P. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant you pardon, † absolution, and remission of your sins.
S. Amen.
Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:
P. Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world.
And then he says three times:
S. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.
S. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.
S. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.
He administers the communion, saying to each:
P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.
