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, junctis manibus ante pectus, incipit Antiphonam:
S. Introíbo ad altáre Dei.
M. Ad Deum, qui lætíficat juventútem meam.
Postea alternatim cum Ministris dicit sequentem:
Ps. 42, 1-5
S. Júdica me, Deus, et discérne causam meam de gente non sancta: ab hómine iníquo et dolóso érue me.
M. Quia tu es, Deus, fortitúdo mea: quare me repulísti, 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 juventútem 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 sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Sacerdos repetit Antiphonam:
S. Introíbo ad altáre Dei.
M. Ad Deum, qui lætíficat juventútem meam.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem:
P. I will go in to 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 in to 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 to the altar of God.
S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.
Signat se, dicens:
V. Adjutórium nostrum in nómine Dómini.
R. Qui fecit cælum et terram.
Deinde junctis manibus profunde inclinatus facit Confessionem.
Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et vobis, fratres: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et ópere: Percutit sibi pectus ter, dicens: 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 vos, fratres, oráre 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 Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et ópere: 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, oráre pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.
Postea Sacerdos, junctis manibus, facit absolutionem, dicens:
S. Misereátur vestri omnípotens Deus, et, dimíssis peccátis vestris, perdúcat vos ad vitam ætérnam.
R. Amen.
Signat se signo crucis, dicens:
S. Indulgéntiam, absolutiónem 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:
P. 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 thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life.
S. Amen.
Signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, the priest says:
P. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.
S. Amen.
Et inclinatus prosequitur:
V. Deus, tu convérsus vivificábis nos.
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 jungens manus, clara voce dicit:
Orémus, ei ascendens ad Altare, dicit secreto:
Aufer a nobis, quǽsumus, Dómine, iniquitátes nostras: ut ad Sancta sanctórum puris mereámur méntibus introíre. Per Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
Deinde, manibus junctis 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.
5
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 jungens manus, caputque aliquantulum inclínans, dicit, si dicendum est, Glória in excélsis Deo, et prosequitur junctis manibus. Cum dicit Adorámus te, Grátias agimus tibi, et Jesu Christe, et Suscipe deprecatiónem, inclinat caput; et in fine dicens: Cum Sancto Spíritu, signat se a fronte ad pectus.
Glória in excélsis Deo. Et in terra pax homínibus bonæ voluntátis. Laudámus te. Benedícimus te. Adorámus te. Glorificámus te. Grátias ágimus tibi propter magnam glóriam tuam.

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, Advent and in Masses for the Dead — the Gloria. 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.

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.
God, Who in thine unspeakable foreknowledge didst choose thy blessed servant Joseph to be the husband of thine Own most holy Mother; mercifully grant that now that he is in heaven with thee, we who on earth do reverence him for our Defender, may worthily be holpen by the succour of his prayers to thee on our behalf;
Who livest and reignest with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end.
R. Amen

Let us pray.

Through 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 libri Génesis
Gen 49:22-26
Fílius accréscens Joseph, fílius accréscens, et decórus aspéctu: fíliæ discurrérunt super murum. Sed exasperavérunt eum, et jurgáti sunt, inviderúntque illi habéntes jácula. Sedit in forti arcus ejus, et dissolúta sunt víncula brachiórum et mánuum illíus per manus poténtis Jacob: inde pastor egréssus est, lapis Israël. Deus patris tui erit adjútor tuus, et Omnípotens benedícet tibi benedictiónibus cœli désuper, benedictiónibus abýssi jacéntis deórsum, benedictiónibus úberum et vulvæ. Benedictiónes patris tui confortátæ sunt benedictiónibus patrum ejus, donec veníret Desidérium cóllium æternórum: fiant in cápite Joseph, et in vértice Nazarǽi inter fratres suos.
R. Deo grátias.

Lesson
Lesson from the book of Genesis
Gen 49:22-26
Joseph is a growing son, a growing son and comely to behold; the daughters run to and fro upon the wall. But they that held darts provoked him, and quarrelled with him, and envied him. His bow rested upon the strong, and the bands of his arms and his hands were loosed, by the hands of the mighty one of Jacob: thence he came forth a pastor, the stone of Israel. The God of thy father shall be thy helper, and the Almighty shall bless thee with the blessings of heaven above, with the blessings of the deep that lieth be- neath, with the blessings of the breasts and of the womb. The blessings of thy father are strengthened with the blessings of his fathers: until the desire of the everlasting hills should come; may they be upon the head of Joseph, and upon the crown of the Nazarite among his brethren.
R. Thanks be to God.
Alleluja
Allelúja, allelúja.
De quacúmque tribulatióne clamáverint ad me, exáudiam eos, et ero protéctor eórum semper. Allelúja.
V. Fac nos innócuam, Joseph, decúrrere vitam: sitque tuo semper tuta patrocínio. Allelúja.
11
Alleluia
Allelúja, allelúja.
In whatever tribulation they shall cry to me, I will hear them and be their protector always. Allelúja.
V. Obtain to us, O Joseph, to lead an innocent life; and may it ever be safe through thy patronage. Allelúja.
Evangelium
Si vero Sacerdos sine Diacono et Subdiacono celebrat, delato libro ad aliud cornu Altaris, inclinatus in medio, junctis manibus dicit:
Munda cor meum ac lábia mea, omnípotens Deus, qui lábia Isaíæ Prophétæ cálculo mundásti igníto: ita me tua grata miseratióne dignáre mundáre, ut sanctum Evangélium tuum digne váleam nuntiáre. Per Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
Jube, Dómine, benedícere. Dóminus sit in corde meo et in lábiis meis: ut digne et competénter annúntiem Evangélium suum. Amen.
Deinde, conversus ad librum, junctis 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 Lucam.
R. Glória tibi, Dómine.
Luc 3:21-23
In illo témpore: Factum est autem, cum baptizarétur omnis pópulus, et Jesu baptizáto et oránte, apértum est cœlum: et descéndit Spíritus Sanctus corporáli spécie sicut colúmba in ipsum: et vox de cœlo facta est: Tu es Fílius meus diléctus, in te complácui mihi. Et ipse Jesus erat incípiens quasi annórum trigínta, ut putabátur, fílius Joseph.
R. Laus tibi, Christe.
S. Per Evangélica dicta, deleántur nostra delícta.
12
Gospel
The Missal is transferred to the other side of the altar. 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 Luke
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Luke 3:21-23
In illo termpore: it came to pass, when all the people were baptized, that Jesus also being baptized and praying, heaven was opened; And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape, as a dove upon him; and a voice came from heaven: Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. And Jesus himself was beginning about the age of thirty years; being - as it was supposed - the son of Joseph, who was of Heli, who was of Mathat,
R. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
S. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.
Credo
Deinde ad medium Altaris extendens, elevans et jungens manus, dicit, si dicendum est, Credo in unum Deum, et prosequitur junctis manibus. Cum dicit Deum, caput Cruci inclinat: quod similiter facit, cum dicit Jesum Christum, et simul adorátur. Ad illa autem verba Et incarnátus est, genuflectit usque dum dicatur Et homo factus est. In fine ad Et vitam ventúri sæculi, signat se signo crucis a fronte ad pectus.
Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem cæli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et invisibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia sǽcula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de cælis. Hic genuflectitur Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in cælum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri sæculi. Amen.
13
Creed
On Sundays and certain Feasts the priest recites the Creed, a summary of the Catholic Doctrine. This profession of faith was drawn up in the General Councils of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381 to condemn heretics who denied that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost were God.
I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things, visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. And born of the Father, before all ages. God of God: Light of Light: true God of true God. Begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven. Here kneel down. And became incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, of whose kingdom there shall be no end.
And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son. Who together, with the Father and the Son, is adored and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets. And in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead. And the life of the world to come. Amen.
Offertorium
Deinde osculatur Altare, et versus ad populum, dicit:
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spíritu tuo.
Postea dicit: Orémus, et Offertorium.
Orémus.
Ps 147:12; 147:13
Lauda, Jerúsalem, Dóminum: quóniam confortávit seras portárum tuárum, benedíxit fíliis tuis in te, allelúja, allelúja.
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 147:12; 147:13
Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem: praise thy God, O Sion. Because he hath strengthened the bolts of thy gates, he hath blessed thy children within thee, allelúja, allelúja.
Quo dicto, si est Missa sollemnis, Diaconus porrigit Celebranti Patenam cum Hostia: si privata, Sacerdos ipse accipit Patenam cum Hostia, quam offerens, dicit:
Súscipe, sancte Pater, omnípotens 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 infundit Sacerdos, et aquam miscendam in Calice benedicit signo crucis, dicens:
Deus, qui humánæ substántiæ dignitátem mirabíliter condidísti, et mirabílius reformásti: da nobis per hujus aquæ et vini mystérium, ejus divinitátis esse consórtes, qui humanitátis nostræ fíeri dignátus est párticeps, Jesus Christus, Fílius tuus, Dóminus noster: Qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti Deus: per ómnia sǽcula 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 majestátis tuæ, pro nostra et totíus mundi salúte, cum odóre suavitátis ascéndat. Amen.
Deinde facit signum crucis cum Calice, et illum ponit super Corporale, et Palla cooperit: tum, junctis 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 jungens, elevátis ad cælum oculis et statim demissis, dicit:
Veni, sanctificátor omnípotens ætérne Deus: Benedicit Oblata, prosequendo: et béne 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, junctis manibus super eo, dicit:
Súscipe, sancta Trínitas, hanc oblatiónem, quam tibi offérimus ob memóriam passiónis, resurrectiónis, et ascensiónis Jesu Christi, Dómini nostri: et in honórem beátæ Maríæ semper Vírginis, et beáti Joannis 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 cælis, quorum memóriam ágimus in terris. Per eúndem Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
19

Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
Postea osculatur Altare, et versus ad populum extendens, et jungens 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 subjungit Orationes secretas.

Secreta
Sanctíssimæ Genetrícis tuæ sponsi patrocínio suffúlti, rogámus, Dómine, cleméntiam tuam: ut corda nostra fácias terréna cuncta despícere, ac te verum Deum perfécta caritáte dilígere:

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.

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 important Feasts. 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.

St. Joseph
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: and that we should magnify with due praises, bless and proclaim Thee on the solemnity of blessed Joseph; who, being a just man, was given by Thee as a Spouse to the Virgin Mother of God, and, as a faithful and prudent servant was set over Thy Family, that, with fatherly care, he might guard Thine only-begotten Son, conceived by the overshadowing of the Holy Ghost, even Jesus Christ, our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, and 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 them 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!

Dómine Jesu Christe, qui dixísti Apóstolis tuis: Pacem relínquo vobis, pacem meam do vobis: ne respícias peccáta mea, sed fidem Ecclésiæ tuæ; eámque secúndum voluntátem tuam pacificáre et coadunáre dignéris: Qui vivis et regnas Deus per ómnia sǽcula 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 Jesu 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 sǽcula 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 Jesu Christe, quod ego indígnus súmere præsúmo, non mihi provéniat in judícium 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 sǽcula 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 cæléstem accípiam, 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 Jesu 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 jungit 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 Jesu 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

47
Communio

Postea dicit:
Quod ore súmpsimus, Dómine, pura mente capiámus: et de múnere 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, adhǽreat viscéribus meis: et præsta; ut in me non remáneat scélerum mácula, quem pura et sancta refecérunt sacraménta: Qui vivis et regnas in sǽcula 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.

Tunc celebrans inclinat se ante medium altaris, et manibus junctis super illud, dicit secrete:
Pláceat tibi, sancta Trínitas, obséquium servitútis meæ: et præsta; ut sacrifícium, quod óculis tuæ majestátis indígnus óbtuli, tibi sit acceptábile, mihíque et ómnibus, pro quibus illud óbtuli, sit, te miseránte, propitiábile. Per Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
53
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 jungens 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, junctis manibus dicit:

Et signans signo crucis primum Altare vel librum, deinde se in fronte, ore et pectore, dicit:

Matt 18:1-10
In illo témpore: Accessérunt discípuli ad Jesum, dicéntes: Quis, putas, major est in regno cœlórum? Et ádvocans Jesus párvulum, státuit eum in médio eórum et dixit: Amen, dico vobis, nisi convérsi fuéritis et efficiámini sicut párvuli, non intrábitis in regnum cœlórum. Quicúmque ergo humiliáverit se sicut párvulus iste, hic est major in regno cœlórum. Et qui suscéperit unum párvulum talem in nómine meo, me súscipit. Qui autem scandalizáverit unum de pusíllis istis, qui in me credunt, expédit ei, ut suspendátur mola asinária in collo ejus, et demergátur in profúndum maris. Væ mundo a scándalis! Necésse est enim, ut véniant scándala: verúmtamen væ hómini illi, per quem scándalum venit! Si autem manus tua vel pes tuus scandalízat te, abscíde eum et projíce abs te: bonum tibi est ad vitam ingrédi débilem vel claudum, quam duas manus vel duos pedes habéntem niitti in ignem ætérnum. Et si óculus tuus scandalízat te, érue eum et projice abs te: bonum tibi est cum uno óculo in vitam intráre, quam duos óculos habéntem mitti in gehénnam ignis. Vidéte, ne contemnátis unum ex his pusíllis: dico enim vobis, quia Angeli eórum in cœlis semper vident fáciem Patris mei, qui in cœlis est.
R. Deo grátias.
Finito Evangelio sancti Joannis, 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:
P. The Lord be with you.
S. And with thy spirit.
He then traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:
Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Matt 18:1-10
In that time: the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Who thinkest thou is the greater in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them, And said: Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven. And he that shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me. But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh. And if thy hand, or thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee to go into life maimed or lame, than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee having one eye to enter into life, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
R. Thanks be to God.
