Benedictio Palmorum
Hora competenti, in choro post Tertiam, omissa aspersione aquæ, proceditur ad benedicendum ramos palmarum seu olivarum, sive aliarum arborum. Color paramentorum est rubeus. Celebrans induitur amictu, alba, cingulo, stola et pluviali; ministri sacri amictu, alba, cingulo, subdiaconus insuper tunicella, diaconus stola et dalmatica. Celebrans induitur amictu, alba, cingulo, stola et pluviali, vel manet sine casula.
Rami, nisi ab ipsis fidelibus iam in manibus teneantur, parentur super abacum, tobalea alba coopertum, et positum in opportuniore loco presbyterii, ita tamen, ut maneat in conspectu populi. Omnibus rite dispositis, celebrans, cum ministris sacris, seu ministrantibus, facta altari debita reverentia, sistit retro abacum, versus populum. Interim vero cantatur sequens
Matt 21:9
Ant. Hosánna fílio David: benedíctus, qui venit in nómine Dómini. O Rex Israël: Hosánna in excélsis.
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spíritu tuo.
In sequenti oratione celebrans dicat, prout qualitati ramorum congruit, hos palmarum ramos, vel hos olivarum ramos, vel hos arborum ramos, vel hos palmarum et olivarum ramos, aut hos palmarum (olivarum) et aliarum arborum ramos.
Orémus.
Bene dic, quǽsumus, Dómine, hos palmárum seu olivárum aut aliarum arborum ramos: et præsta; ut, quod pópulus tuus in tui veneratiónem hodiérna die corporáliter agit, hoc spirituáliter summa devotióne perfíciat, de hoste victóriam reportándo et opus misericórdiæ summópere diligéndo. Per Christum Dominum nostrum.
R. Amen.
Tunc celebrans primum ter aspergit ramos, super abacum positos, postea, ad cancellos, ramos fidelium, ubi ipsi, ut dictum est, ramos iam in manibus portant, nisi placuerit horum aspersionem facere transeundo per aulam ecclesiæ. Deinde celebrans ponit incensum in thuribulo, more solito, et primum ter adolet ramos benedictos super abacum positos, postea, ad cancellos, vel transeundo per aulam ecclesiæ, incensat ramos fidelium. Ministri sacri, vel ministrantes, celebrantem comitantur, tam in aspersione, quam in incensatione ramorum, fimbriam pluvialis tenentes.

The Blessing of the Palms,
The priest in red cope, with his ministers also vested in red, proceeds to the blessing of palms, or of branches of olive or other trees which are placed in front or on the epistle side of the altar.
Matth. 21. 9.
Ant. Hosanna to the Son of David Blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord. O King of Israel: Hosanna in the highest
Then the priest, standing on the epistle side, his hands joined, turning towards the faithful, sings:
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
Let us pray.
Bless, we beseech Thee, O Lord, these branches of palm - or olive or other trees: - and grant that what Thy people today bodily perform for Thy honor, they may perfect spiritually with the utmost devotion, by gaining the victory over the enemy, and ardently loving every work of mercy.
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.

De distributione ramorum
Completa benedictione, fit ramorum distributio, secundum locorum consuetudinem.
Itaque, celebrans, stans in suppedaneo altaris, versus populum, adiuvantibus ministris sacris, vel ministrantibus, dat ramos benedictos primum omnibus clericis per ordinem, deinde ministrantibus, denique, ad cancellos, fidelibus.
Et cum inceperit distribuere, cantantur sequentes antiphonæ et psalmi, hoc modo:

De lectione Evangelica
Ramorum distributione peracta, et abaco remoto, celebrans lavat manus, nihil dicens; deinde, ascendens altare, osculatur illud in medio, et ponit incensum in thuribulo, more solito. Diaconus defert librum Evangeliorum ad altare eumque deponit super illud et fiunt omnia ut in Missa quando Evangelium decantandum est. Celebrans omnia peragat, ut de more, quando sacerdos solus Missam celebrat in cantu.
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.
Postea accipit librum de Altari, et rursus genuflexus petit benedictionem a Sacerdote, dicens:
D. Iube, domne, benedícere.
Sacerdos respondet:
S. Dóminus sit in corde tuo et in lábiis tuis: ut digne et competénter annúnties Evangélium suum: In nómine Patris, et Fílii, et Spíritus Sancti. Amen.
Et, accepta benedictione, osculatur manum Celebrantis: et cum aliis Ministris, incenso et luminaribus a ccedens ad locum Evangelii, stans iunctis manibus, dicit:
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
Evangelium
Sequéntia +︎ sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum.
R. Glória tibi, Dómine.
Matt 21:1-9
In illo témpore: Cum appropinquásset Iesus Ierosólymis, et venísset Béthphage ad montem Olivéti: tunc misit duos discípulos suos, dicens eis: Ite in castéllum, quod contra vos est, et statim inveniétis ásinam alligátam et pullum cum ea: sólvite et addúcite mihi: et si quis vobis áliquid dixerit, dícite, quia Dóminus his opus habet, et conféstim dimíttet eos. Hoc autem totum factum est, ut adimplerétur, quod dictum est per Prophétam, dicéntem: Dícite fíliæ Sion: Ecce, Rex tuus venit tibi mansuétus, sedens super ásinam et pullum, fílium subiugális. Eúntes autem discípuli, fecérunt, sicut præcépit illis Iesus. Et adduxérunt ásinam et pullum: et imposuérunt super eos vestiménta sua, et eum désuper sedére tecérunt. Plúrima autem turba stravérunt vestiménta sua in via: álii autem cædébant ramos de arbóribus, et sternébant in via: turbæ autem, quæ præcedébant et quæ sequebántur, clamábant, dicéntes: Hosánna fílio David: benedíctus, qui venit in nómine Dómini.
R. Laus tibi, Christe!
S. Per Evangélica dicta, deleántur nostra delícta.
Evangelio finito, subdiaconus defert librum osculandum celebranti, qui non incensatur a diacono.

When the palms have been distributed the deacon puts the gospel book on the altar and the priest puts incense into the thurible. The prayer Munda Cor is said as usual, and the Gospel is sung by the deacon with all the ceremonies usual at High Mass.
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.
R. Amen.
Afterwards he takes the book from the altar, and again kneeling down before the priest, asks his blessing, saying:
D. Sir, give me thy blessing.
The priest answers:
P. The Lord be in thy heart and on thy lips, that thou mayest worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Then, turning back to towards the book, with his hands joined, the priest -- at Solemn Masses the deacon -- says:
P. The Lord be with you.
S. And with thy spirit.
Gospel
Continuation +︎ of the holy Gospel according to Matthew.
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Matt 21:1-9
At that time, when Jesus drew nigh to Jerusalem, and was come to Bethphage, unto Mount Olivet, then He sent two disciples, saying to them: Go ye into the village that is over against you, and immediately you shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them and bring them to Me. And if any man shall say anything to you, say ye, that the Lord hath need of them: and forthwith he will let them go. Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: Tell ye the daughter of Sion: Behold thy King cometh to thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of her that is used to the yoke. And the disciples going, did as Jesus commanded them. And they brought the ass and the colt, and laid their garments upon them, and made him sit thereon. And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way: and others cut boughs from the trees, and strewed them in the way, and the multitudes that went before and that followed, cried, saying: Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord.
R. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
S. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

De processione cum ramis benedictis
His peractis, celebrans ponit incensum in thuribulo, more solito. Deinde diaconus, vertens se ad populum, dicit:
V. Procedámus in pace.
Respondent omnes:
R. In nómine Christi. Amen.
Et incipit processio. Præcedit thuriferarius cum thuribulo fumigante, deinde alter subdiaconus paratus, vel acolythus, aut unus ex ministrantibus, deferens crucem non velatam, medius inter duos acolythos, vel ministrantes cum candelabris accensis; sequitur clerus per ordinem, ultimo celebrans cum diacono et subdiacono,post eos fideles, ramos benedictos manibus gestantes.
Processio dirigatur, si fieri potest, extra ecclesiam, per aliquam viam longiorem. Sicubi vero habeatur altera ecclesia, in qua ramorum benedictio commode peragi possit, nihil impedit, quominus benedictio eorum ibi fiat, et deinde processio pergat ad ecclesiam principalem.
Incipiente processione, cantari possunt antiphonæ sequentes, omnes, vel aliquæ, pro opportunitate.
Occúrrunt turbæ cum flóribus et palmis Redemptóri óbviam: et victóri triumphánti digna dant obséquia: Fílium Dei ore gentes prædicant: et in laudem Christi voces tonant per núbila: «Hosánna in excélsis».
Cum Angelis et púeris fidéles inveniántur, triumphatóri mortis damántes: «Hosánna in excélsis».
Turba multa, quæ convénerat ad diem festum, clamábat Dómino: Benedíctus, qui venit in nómine Dómini: «Hosánna in excélsis».
Luc 19:37, 38
Cœpérunt omnes turbæ descendéntium gaudéntes laudáre Deum voce magna, super ómnibus quas víderant virtútibus, dicéntes: «Benedíctus qui venit Rex in nómine Dómini; pax in terra, et glória in excélsis».
Progrediente processione, cantatur sequens hymnus, populo, si fieri potest, duos primos versus continuo repetente, ut infra notatur.

The Procession of Palms
The procession now takes place. When the priest places incense in the thurible, the deacon, turning toward the people, sings, the choir responding:
V. Let us go forth in peace.
R. In the name of Christ. Amen.
The thurifer precedes with the smoking censer, followed by the subdeacon, bearing the processional cross between two acolytes carrying lighted candles. Then follow the clergy in order of rank, then the celebrant with the deacon on his left. Where it is custom for the people to join the procession, they follow the celebrant. All carry palms, and all or some of them sing the following anthems, hymns, and Psalms, during the whole time the procession lasts.
The multitude goeth forth to meet our Redeemer with flowers and palms, and payeth the homage due to a triumphant Conqueror: the Gentiles proclaim the Son of God; and their voices thunder through the skies in praise of Christ: Hosanna in the highest!
Let the faithful join with the Angels and children singing to the Conqueror of death: Hosanna in the higest!
A great multitude that was met together at the festival cried out to the Lord: Blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest!
Near the descent the whole multitude began with joy to praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying: Blessed be the King who cometh in the name of the Lord; peace on earth and glory on high.

Ant. All praise Thy name highly and say: Blessed is He who cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
PSALM 147
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.
Who hath placed peace in thy borders: * and filleth thee with the fat of corn.
Who sendeth forth His speech to the earth: * His word runneth swiftly.
Who giveth snow like wool: * scattereth mists like ashes.
He sendeth His crystal like morsels: * Who shall stand before the face of His cold?
He shall send out His Word and shall melt them: * His wind shall blow and the waters shall run.
Who declareth His word to Jacob: * His justice and His judgements to Israel.
He hath not done in like manner to every nation: * and His judgements He hath not made manifest to them.
Ant. All praise Thy name highly and say: Blessed is He who cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

Fulgéntibus palmis prostérnimur adveniénti Dómino: huic omnes occurrámus cum hymnis et cánticis, glorificántes et dicéntes: «Benedíctus Dóminus».
Ave, Rex noster, Fili David, Redémptor mundi, quem prophétæ prædixérunt Salvatórem dómui Israël esse ventúrum. Te enim ad salutárem víctimam Pater misit in mundum, quem exspectábant omnes sancti ab orígine mundi, et nunc: «Hosánna Fílio David. Benedíctus qui venit in nómine Dómini. Hosánna in excélsis».
Nihil impedit, quominus cantetur a fidelibus hymnus Christus vincit, vel alius cantus in honorem Christi Regis.

We are strewn with the shining palms before the Lord as He approacheth; let us all run to meet Him with hymns and songs, glorify Him and say: Blessed be the Lord!
Hail, our King, O Son of David, O world's Redeemer, whom prophets did foretell as the Saviour to come of the house of Israel. For the Father sent Thee into the world as victim for salvation; from the beginning of the world all the saints awaited Thee: Hosanna now to the Son of David! Belssed be He who cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Intrante processione in ecclesiam, dum celebrans per valvas ecclesiæ transit, incipitur ultima antiphona.
Ingrediénte Dómino in sanctam civitátem, Hebræórum púeri resurrectiónem vitæ pronuntiántes,
Cum ramis palmárum: «Hosánna, clamábant, in excélsis».
Cum audísset pópulus, quod Iesus veníret Ierosólymam, exiérunt óbviam ei.
Cum ramis palmárum: «Hosánna, clamábant, in excélsis».
9

If the procession has gone outside, it may be custom in some places for the subdeacon to knock thrice on the door of the church with the shaft of the processional cross. The door is opened, and the procession enters the church, singing:
RESPONSORY
As our Lord entered the holy city, the Hebrew children, declaring the resurrection of life,
R. With palm branches, cried out: Hosanna in the highest.
V. When the people heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, they went forth to meet Him:
R. With palm branches, cried out: Hosanna in the highest.

Celebrans, cum ad altare advenerit, facta debita reverentia, illud ascendit cum ministris sacris, et, stans medius inter illos, versus populum, clerico librum tenente, dicit, in tono feriali, orationem ad complendam processionem, manibus iunctis.
Ministrantes serviunt ad librum, et omnia fiunt, ut supra dictum est.
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
Oremus.
Dómine Iesu Christe, Rex ac Redémptor noster, in cuius honórem, hoc ramos gestántes, solémnes laudes decantávimus: concéde propítius ut, quocúmque hi rami deportáti fúerint, ibi tuæ benedictiónis grátia descéndat, et quavis dǽmonum iniquitáte vel illusióne profligáta, déxtera tua prótegat, quos redémit: Qui vivis et regnas in sǽcula sæculórum.
Omnes:
R. Amen.
Oratione finita, celebrans et ministri, facta debita altari reverentia, deponunt paramenta rubea, assumentes, pro Missa, violacea.
Rami non tenentur manibus, dum in Missa historia Passionis Domini cantatur vel legitur.
10

The celebrant reaches the altar, turns to the people, and sings:
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
Let us pray.
O Lord Jesus Christ, our King and Redeemer, in whose honor we have borne these palms and gone on praising Thee with song and solemnity: mercifully grant that whithersoever these palms are taken, there the grace of Thy blessing may descend; may every wickedness and trick of the demons be frustrated; and may Thy right hand protect those it hath redeemed. Who livest and reignest for ever and ever.
R. Amen.
The sacred Ministers now change from red to purple vestments for the Mass.

Incensatio
In Missa sollemni, Celebrans, antequam legat Introitum, antequam incipiat antiphonam ad Introitum, incensat altare.
Diaconus, parum inclinatus versum sacerdotem, dicit:
Benedícite, pater reverénde
Sacerdos benedicit incensum, dicens:
Ab illo bene dicáris, in cuius honore cremáberis. Amen.
Et, accepto thuribulo a Diacono, incensat Altare, nihil dicens.
Postea Diaconus, recepto thuribulo a Celebrante, incensat illum tantum.
Sacerdos, accedit ad cornu Epistolae et, signans se signo crucis, intelligibili voce incipit antiphonam ad Introitum:
11
Introductory Rites
When the people are gathered, the Priest approaches the altar with the ministers while the Entrance Chant is sung. When he has arrived at the altar, after making a profound bow with the ministers, the Priest venerates the altar with a kiss and, if appropriate, incenses the cross and the altar. Then, with the ministers, he goes to the chair. When the Entrance Chant is concluded, the Priest and the faithful, standing, sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross, while the Priest, facing the people, says:
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
The people reply:
V. Amen.

Dómine, ne longe fácias auxílium tuum a me, ad defensiónem meam áspice: líbera me de ore leonis, et a córnibus unicórnium humilitátem meam.
Ps 21:2
Deus, Deus meus, réspice in me: quare me dereliquísti? longe a salúte mea verba delictórum meórum.
Dómine, ne longe fácias auxílium tuum a me, ad defensiónem meam áspice: líbera me de ore leonis, et a córnibus unicórnium humilitátem meam.

Then the Priest, extending his hands, greets the people, saying:
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
The Priest, or a deacon, or another minister, may very briefly introduce the faithful to the Mass of the day.

Then follows the Penitential Act, to which the Priest invites the faithful, saying:
P. Brethren brothers and sisters, let us acknowledge our sins, that we may prepare ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries.
A brief pause for silence follows. Then all recite together the formula of general confession:
I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do, And, striking their breast, they say: through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault; Then they continue therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.
The absolution of the Priest follows:
P. May almighty God have mercy on us and lead us, with our sins forgiven, to eternal life.
The people reply:
Amen.

Phil 2:5-11
Fratres: Hoc enim sentíte in vobis, quod et in Christo Iesu: qui, cum in forma Dei esset, non rapínam arbitrátus est esse se æqualem Deo: sed semetípsum exinanívit, formam servi accípiens, in similitúdinem hóminum factus, et hábitu invéntus ut homo. Humiliávit semetípsum, factus obœ́diens usque ad mortem, mortem autem crucis. Propter quod et Deus exaltávit illum: ei donávit illi nomen, quod est super omne nomen: hic genuflectitur ut in nómine Iesu omne genu flectátur cœléstium, terréstrium et inférno rum: et omnis lingua confiteátur, quia Dóminus Iesus Christus in glória est Dei Patris.

Pássio Dómini nostri Iesu Christi secúndum Matthǽum
Matt 26:36-75; 27:1-60
Tunc venit Iesus cum illis in villam, quæ dícitur Gethsémani, et dixit discípulis suis: I. Sedéte hic, donec vadam illuc et orem. C. Et assúmpto Petro et duóbus fíliis Zebedæi, cœpit contristári et mæstus esse. Tunc ait illis: I. Tristis est ánima mea usque ad mortem: sustinéte hic, et vigilate mecum. C. Et progréssus pusíllum, prócidit in fáciem suam, orans et dicens: I. Pater mi, si possíbile est, tránseat a me calix iste: Verúmtamen non sicut ego volo, sed sicut tu. C. Et venit ad discípulos suos, et invénit eos dormiéntes: et dicit Petro: I. Sic non potuístis una hora vigiláre mecum? Vigiláte et oráte, ut non intrétis in tentatiónem. Spíritus quidem promptus est, caro autem infírma. C. Iterum secúndo ábiit et orávit, dicens: I. Pater mi, si non potest hic calix transíre, nisi bibam illum, fiat volúntas tua. C. Et venit íterum, et invenit eos dormiéntes: erant enim óculi eórum graváti. Et relíctis illis, íterum ábiit et orávit tértio, eúndem sermónem dicens. Tunc venit ad discípulos suos, et dicit illis: I. Dormíte iam et requiéscite: ecce, appropinquávit hora, et Fílius hóminis tradétur in manus peccatórum. Súrgite, eámus: ecce, appropinquávit, qui me tradet. C. Adhuc eo loquénte, ecce, Iudas, unus de duódecim, venit, et cum eo turba multa cum gládiis et fústibus, missi a princípibus sacerdótum et senióribus pópuli. Qui autem trádidit eum, dedit illis signum, dicens: S. Quemcúmque osculátus fúero, ipse est, tenéte eum. C. Et conféstim accédens ad Iesum, dixit: S. Ave, Rabbi. C. Et osculátus est eum. Dixítque illi Iesus: I. Amíce, ad quid venísti? C. Tunc accessérunt, et manus iniecérunt in Iesum et tenuérunt eum. Et ecce, unus ex his, qui erant cum Iesu, exténdens manum, exémit gládium suum, et percútiens servum príncipis sacerdótum, amputávit aurículam eius. Tunc ait illi Iesus: I. Convérte gládium tuum in locum suum. Omnes enim, qui accéperint gládium, gládio períbunt. An putas, quia non possum rogáre Patrem meum, et exhibébit mihi modo plus quam duódecim legiónes Angelórum? Quómodo ergo implebúntur Scripturæ, quia sic oportet fíeri? C. In illa hora dixit Iesus turbis: I. Tamquam ad latrónem exístis cum gládiis et fústibus comprehéndere me: cotídie apud vos sedébam docens in templo, et non me tenuístis. C. Hoc autem totum factum est, ut adimpleréntur Scripturæ Prophetárum. Tunc discípuli omnes, relícto eo, fugérunt. At illi tenéntes Iesum, duxérunt ad Cáipham, príncipem sacerdótum, ubi scribæ et senióres convénerant. Petrus autem sequebátur eum a longe, usque in átrium príncipis sacerdótum. Et ingréssus intro, sedébat cum minístris, ut vidéret finem. Príncipes autem sacerdótum et omne concílium quærébant falsum testimónium contra Iesum, ut eum morti tráderent: et non invenérunt, cum multi falsi testes accessíssent. Novíssime autem venérunt duo falsi testes et dixérunt: S. Hic dixit: Possum destrúere templum Dei, et post tríduum reædificáre illud. C. Et surgens princeps sacerdótum, ait illi: S. Nihil respóndes ad ea, quæ isti advérsum te testificántur? C. Iesus autem tacébat. Et princeps sacerdótum ait illi: S. Adiúro te per Deum vivum, ut dicas nobis, si tu es Christus, Fílius Dei. C. Dicit illi Iesus: I. Tu dixísti. Verúmtamen dico vobis, ámodo vidébitis Fílium hóminis sedéntem a dextris virtútis Dei, et veniéntem in núbibus cœli. C. Tunc princeps sacerdótum scidit vestiménta sua, dicens: S. Blasphemávit: quid adhuc egémus téstibus? Ecce, nunc audístis blasphémiam: quid vobis vidétur? C. At illi respondéntes dixérunt: S. Reus est mortis. C. Tunc exspuérunt in fáciem eius, et cólaphis eum cecidérunt, álii autem palmas in fáciem eius dedérunt, dicéntes: S. Prophetíza nobis, Christe, quis est, qui te percússit? C. Petrus vero sedébat foris in átrio: et accéssit ad eum una ancílla, dicens: S. Et tu cum Iesu Galilæo eras. C. At ille negávit coram ómnibus, dicens: S. Néscio, quid dicis. C. Exeúnte autem illo iánuam, vidit eum ália ancílla, et ait his, qui erant ibi: S. Et hic erat cum Iesu Nazaréno. C. Et íterum negávit cum iuraménto: Quia non novi hóminem. Et post pusíllum accessérunt, qui stabant, et dixérunt Petro: S. Vere et tu ex illis es: nam et loquéla tua maniféstum te facit. C. Tunc cœpit detestári et iuráre, quia non novísset hóminem. Et contínuo gallus cantávit. Et recordátus est Petrus verbi Iesu, quod díxerat: Priúsquam gallus cantet, ter me negábis. Et egréssus foras, flevit amáre. Mane autem facto, consílium iniérunt omnes príncipes sacerdótum et senióres pópuli advérsus Iesum, ut eum morti tráderent. Et vinctum adduxérunt eum, et tradidérunt Póntio Piláto præsidi. Tunc videns Iudas, qui eum trádidit, quod damnátus esset, pæniténtia ductus, réttulit trigínta argénteos princípibus sacerdótum et senióribus, dicens: S. Peccávi, tradens sánguinem iustum. C. At illi dixérunt: S. Quid ad nos? Tu vidéris. C. Et proiéctis argénteis in templo, recéssit: et ábiens, láqueo se suspéndit. Príncipes autem sacerdótum, accéptis argénteis, dixérunt: S. Non licet eos míttere in córbonam: quia prétium sánguinis est. C. Consílio autem ínito, emérunt ex illis agrum fíguli, in sepultúram peregrinórum. Propter hoc vocátus est ager ille, Hacéldama, hoc est, ager sánguinis, usque in hodiérnum diem. Tunc implétum est, quod dictum est per Ieremíam Prophétam, dicéntem: Et accepérunt trigínta argénteos prétium appretiáti, quem appretiavérunt a fíliis Israël: et dedérunt eos in agrum fíguli, sicut constítuit mihi Dóminus. Iesus autem stetit ante præsidem, et interrogávit eum præses, dicens: S. Tu es Rex Iudæórum? C. Dicit illi Iesus: I. Tu dicis. C. Et cum accusarétur a princípibus sacerdótum et senióribus, nihil respóndit. Tunc dicit illi Pilátus: S. Non audis, quanta advérsum te dicunt testimónia? C. Et non respóndit ei ad ullum verbum, ita ut mirarétur præses veheménter. Per diem autem sollémnem consuéverat præses pópulo dimíttere unum vinctum, quem voluíssent. Habébat autem tunc vinctum insígnem, qui dicebátur Barábbas. Congregátis ergo illis, dixit Pilátus: S. Quem vultis dimíttam vobis: Barábbam, an Iesum, qui dícitur Christus? C. Sciébat enim, quod per invídiam tradidíssent eum. Sedénte autem illo pro tribunáli, misit ad eum uxor eius, dicens: S. Nihil tibi et iusto illi: multa enim passa sum hódie per visum propter eum. C. Príncipes autem sacerdótum et senióres persuasérunt populis, ut péterent Barábbam, Iesum vero pérderent. Respóndens autem præses, ait illis: S. Quem vultis vobis de duóbus dimítti? C. At illi dixérunt: S. Barábbam. C. Dicit illis Pilátus: S. Quid ígitur fáciam de Iesu, qui dícitur Christus? C. Dicunt omnes: S. Crucifigátur. C. Ait illis præses: S. Quid enim mali fecit? C. At illi magis clamábant,dicéntes: S. Crucifigátur. C. Videns autem Pilátus, quia nihil profíceret, sed magis tumúltus fíeret: accépta aqua, lavit manus coram pópulo, dicens: S. Innocens ego sum a sánguine iusti huius: vos vidéritis. C. Et respóndens univérsus pópulus, dixit: S. Sanguis eius super nos et super fílios nostros. C. Tunc dimísit illis Barábbam: Iesum autem flagellátum trádidit eis, ut crucifigerétur. Tunc mílites præsidis suscipiéntes Iesum in prætórium, congregavérunt ad eum univérsam cohórtem: et exuéntes eum, chlámydem coccíneam circumdedérunt ei: et plecténtes corónam de spinis, posuérunt super caput eius, et arúndinem in déxtera eius. Et genu flexo ante eum, illudébant ei, dicéntes: S. Ave, Rex Iudæórum. C. Et exspuéntes in eum, accepérunt arúndinem, et percutiébant caput eius. Et postquam illusérunt ei, exuérunt eum chlámyde et induérunt eum vestiméntis eius, et duxérunt eum, ut crucifígerent. Exeúntes autem, invenérunt hóminem Cyrenæum, nómine Simónem: hunc angariavérunt, ut tólleret crucem eius. Et venérunt in locum, qui dícitur Gólgotha, quod est Calváriæ locus. Et dedérunt ei vinum bíbere cum felle mixtum. Et cum gustásset, nóluit bibere. Postquam autem crucifixérunt eum, divisérunt vestiménta eius, sortem mitténtes: ut implerétur, quod dictum est per Prophétam dicentem: Divisérunt sibi vestiménta mea, et super vestem meam misérunt sortem. Et sedéntes, servábant eum. Et imposuérunt super caput eius causam ipsíus scriptam: Hic est Iesus, Rex Iudæórum. Tunc crucifíxi sunt cum eo duo latrónes: unus a dextris et unus a sinístris. Prætereúntes autem blasphemábant eum, movéntes cápita sua et dicéntes: S. Vah, qui déstruis templum Dei et in tríduo illud reædíficas: salva temetípsum. Si Fílius Dei es, descénde de cruce. C. Simíliter et príncipes sacerdótum illudéntes cum scribis et senióribus, dicébant: S. Alios salvos fecit, seípsum non potest salvum fácere: si Rex Israël est, descéndat nunc de cruce, et crédimus ei: confídit in Deo: líberet nunc, si vult eum: dixit enim: Quia Fílius Dei sum. C. Idípsum autem et latrónes, qui crucifíxi erant cum eo, improperábant ei. A sexta autem hora ténebræ factæ sunt super univérsam terram usque ad horam nonam. Et circa horam nonam clamávit Iesus voce magna, dicens: I. Eli, Eli, lamma sabactháni? C. Hoc est: I. Deus meus, Deus meus, ut quid dereliquísti me? C. Quidam autem illic stantes et audiéntes dicébant: S. Elíam vocat iste. C. Et contínuo currens unus ex eis, accéptam spóngiam implévit acéto et impósuit arúndini, et dabat ei bíbere. Céteri vero dicébant: S. Sine, videámus, an véniat Elías líberans eum. C. Iesus autem íterum clamans voce magna, emísit spíritum.
Hic genuflectitur, et pausatur aliquantulum.
Et ecce, velum templi scissum est in duas partes a summo usque deórsum: et terra mota est, et petræ scissæ sunt, et monuménta apérta sunt: et multa córpora sanctórum, qui dormíerant, surrexérunt. Et exeúntes de monuméntis post resurrectiónem eius, venérunt in sanctam civitátem, et apparuérunt multis. Centúrio autem et qui cum eo erant, custodiéntes Iesum, viso terræmótu et his, quæ fiébant, timuérunt valde, dicéntes: S. Vere Fílius Dei erat iste. C. Erant autem ibi mulíeres multæ a longe, quæ secútæ erant Iesum a Galilæa, ministrántes ei: inter quas erat María Magdaléne, et María Iacóbi, et Ioseph mater, et mater filiórum Zebedæi. Cum autem sero factum esset, venit quidam homo dives ab Arimathæa, nómine Ioseph, qui et ipse discípulus erat Iesu. Hic accéssit ad Pilátum, et pétiit corpus Iesu. Tunc Pilátus iussit reddi corpus. Et accépto córpore, Ioseph invólvit illud in síndone munda. Et pósuit illud in monuménto suo novo, quod excíderat in petra. Et advólvit saxum magnum ad óstium monuménti, et ábiit.

Collect
When this hymn is concluded, the Priest, with hands joined, says:
Let us pray.
And all pray in silence with the Priest for a moment. Then the Priest, with hands extended, says the Collect prayer,
Father, you sent your Word to bring us truth and your Spirit to make us holy. Through them we come to know the mystery of your life. Help us to worship you,
one God in three Persons, by proclaiming and living our faith in you.
We ask you this, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God, true and living, for ever and ever.
Credo
Deinde ad medium Altaris extendens, elevans et iungens manus, dicit, si dicendum est, Credo in unum Deum, et prosequitur iunctis manibus. Cum dicit Deum, caput Cruci inclinat: quod similiter facit, cum dicit Iesum 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 saeculi, signat se signo crucis a fronte ad pectus.
Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et invisibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Iesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. 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 coelis. 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 coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória iudicáre vivos et mórtuos: cuius 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 saeculi. Amen.

The Liturgy of the Word
Then the reader goes to the ambo and reads the first reading, while all sit and listen.
Prov 8:22-31
"The LORD begot me, the first-born of his ways, the forerunner of his prodigies of long ago; From of old I was poured forth, at the first, before the earth. When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no fountains or springs of water; Before the mountains were settled into place, before the hills, I was brought forth; While as yet the earth and the fields were not made, nor the first clods of the world. "When he established the heavens I was there, when he marked out the vault over the face of the deep; When he made firm the skies above, when he fixed fast the foundations of the earth; When he set for the sea its limit, so that the waters should not transgress his command; Then was I beside him as his craftsman, and I was his delight day by day, Playing before him all the while, playing on the surface of his earth; and I found delight in the sons of men.
To indicate the end of the reading, the reader acclaims:
The Word of the Lord.
All reply:
V. Thanks be to God.

The psalmist or cantor sings or says the Psalm, with the people making the response.
R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
When I behold your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars which you set in place
What is man that you should be mindful of him,
or the son of man that you should care for him?
R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
You have made him little less than the angels,
and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him rule over the works of your hands,
putting all things under his feet:
R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
All sheep and oxen,
yes, and the beasts of the field,
The birds of the air, the fishes of the sea,
and whatever swims the paths of the seas.
R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!

After this, if there is to be a second reading, a reader reads it from the ambo, as above.
Rom 5:1-5
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we even boast of our afflictions, knowing that affliction produces endurance, and endurance, proven character, and proven character, hope, and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the holy Spirit that has been given to us.

The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew.
Matt. 26:36-75; 27:1-60.
Then Jesus came with them into a country place which is called Gethsemani; and He said to His disciples: J. Sit you here, till I go yonder and pray. C. And taking with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, He began to grow sorrowful and to be sad. Then He saith to them: J. My soul is sorrowful even unto death; stay you here and watch with Me. C. And going a little further, He fell upon His face, praying and saying: J. My Father, if it be possible, let this chalice pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as Thou wilt. C. And He cometh to His disciples, and findeth them asleep. And He saith to Peter: J. What! Could you not watch one hour with Me? Watch ye, and pray that ye enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. C. Again the second time, He went and prayed, saying: J. My Father, if this chalice may not pass away, but I must drink it, Thy will be done. C. And He cometh again, and findeth them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. And leaving them, He went again and He prayed the third time, saying the self-same word. Then He cometh to His disciples, and saith to them: J. Sleep ye now and take your rest; behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man shall be betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise, let us go; behold, he is at hand that will betray Me. C. As He yet spoke, behold Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the ancients of the people. And he that betrayed Him gave them a sign, saying: S. Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is He; hold Him fast. C. And forthwith coming to Jesus, he said: S. Hail, Rabbi. C. And he kissed Him. And Jesus said to him: J. Friend, whereto art thou come? C. Then they came up and laid hands on Jesus, and held Him. And behold one of them that were with Jesus, stretching forth his hand, drew out his sword, and striking the servant of the high priest, cut off his ear. Then Jesus saith to him: J. Put up again thy sword into its place; for all that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Thinkest thou that I cannot ask My Father, and He will give Me presently more than twelve legions of Angels? How then shall the Scriptures be fulfilled, that so it must be done? C. In that same hour Jesus said to the multitudes: J. You are come out, as it were to a robber, with swords and clubs to apprehend Me. I sat daily with you, teaching in the temple, and you laid not hands on Me. C. Now all this was done that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then the disciples, all leaving Him, fled. But they holding Jesus led Him to Caiphas the high priest, where the scribes and the ancients were assembled. And Peter followed Him afar off, even to the court of the high priest. And going in, he sat with the servants, that he might see the end. And the chief priests and the whole council sought false witness against Jesus, that they might put Him to death. And they found none, whereas many false witnesses had come in. And last of all there came two false witnesses; and they said: This man said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and after three days to rebuild it. And the high priest, rising up, said to Him: S. Answerest Thou nothing to the things which these witness against Thee? C. But Jesus held His peace. And the high priest said to Him: S. I adjure Thee by the living God, that Thou tell us if Thou be the Christ the Son of God. C. Jesus saith to him: J. Thou hast said it. Nevertheless I say to you, hereafter you shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of the power of God, and coming in the clouds of heaven. C. Then the high priest rent his garments, saying: S. He hath blasphemed; what further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now you have heard the blasphemy. What think you? C. But they answering, said: S. He is guilty of death. C. Then they did spit in His face and buffeted Him; and others struck His face with the palms of their hands, saying: S. Prophesy unto us, O Christ, who is he that struck Thee? C. But Peter sat without in the court, and there came to him a servant maid, saying: S. Thou also wast with Jesus the Galilean. C. But he denied it before them all, saying: S. I know not what thou sayest. C. And as he went out of the gate, another maid saw him, and she saith to them that were there: S. This man also was with Jesus of Nazareth. C. And again he denied it with an oath: S. I know not the man. C. And after a little while, they came that stood by and said to Peter: S. Surely thou also art one of them; for even thy speech doth discover thee. C. Then he began to curse and to swear that he knew not the man; and immediately the cock crew. And Peter remembered the words of Jesus which He had said: before the cock crow, thou wilt deny Me thrice. And going forth, he wept bitterly. And when morning was come, all the chief priests and ancients ofthe people took counsel against Jesus, that they might put Him to death. And they brought Him bound, and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor. Then Judas, who betrayed Him, seeing that He was condemned, repenting himself, brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and ancients, saying: S. I have sinned in betraying innocent blood. C. But they said: S. What is that to us? Look thou to it. C. And casting down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed, and went and hanged himself with a halter. But the chief priests having taken the pieces of silver, said: S. It is not lawful to put them into the corbona, because it is the price of blood. And after they had consulted together, they bought with them the potter's field, to be a burying-place for strangers. For this cause that field was called Haceldama, that is, the field of blood, even to this day. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremias the prophet, saying: And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of Him that was prized, whom they prized of the children of Israel: and they gave them unto the potter's field, as the Lord appointed to me. And Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked Him, saying: S.Art Thou the King of the Jews? C. Jesus saith to him: J. Thou sayest it. C. And when He was accused by the chief priests and ancients, He answered nothing. Then Pilate saith to Him: S. Dost not Thou hear how great testimonies they allege against Thee? C. And He answered to him never a word, so that the governor wondered exceedingly. Now upon the solemn day the governor was accustomed to release to the people one prisoner, whom they would. And he had then a notorious prisoner that was called Barabbas. They therefore being gathered together, Pilate said: S. Whom will you that I release to you: Barabbas, or Jesus that is called Christ? C. For he knew that for envy they had delivered Him. And as he was sitting in the place of judgment his wife sent to him, saying: S. Have thou nothing to do with that just man, for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of Him. C. But the chief priests and ancients persuaded the people that they should ask Barabbas, and make Jesus away. And the governor answering, said to them: S. Whither will you of the two to be released unto you? C. But they said: S. Barabbas. C. Pilate saith to them: S. What shall I do then with Jesus that is called Christ? C. They all call: S. Let Him be crucified. C. The governor said to them: S. Why, what evil hath He done? C. But they cried out the more, saying: S. Let Him be crucified. C. And Pilate seeing that he prevailed nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, taking water washed his hands before the people, saying: S. I am innocent of the blood of this just man; look you to it. C. And the whole people answering, said: S. His blood be upon us and upon our children. C. Then he released to them Barabbas, and having scourged Jesus, delivered Him unto them to be crucified. Then the soldiers of the governor, taking Jesus into the hall, gathered together unto Him the whole band; and stripping Him they put a scarlet cloak about Him. And platting a crown of thorns they put it upon His head and a reed in His right hand. And bowing the knee before Him, they mocked Him, saying: S. Hail, King of the Jews. C. And spitting upon Him, they took the reed and struck His head. And after they had mocked Him, they took off the cloak from Him, and put on Him His own garments, and led Him away to crucify Him. And going out, they found a man of Cyrene, named Simon; him they forced to take up His cross. And they came to the place that is called Golgotha, which is, the place of Calvary. And they gave Him wine to drink mingled with gall; and when He had tasted He would not drink. And after they had crucified Him, they divided His garments, casting lots; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: They divided My garments among them, and upon my vesture they cast lots. And they sat and watched Him. And they put over His head His cause written: This is Jesus the King of the Jews. Then were crucified with Him two thieves; one on the right hand and one on the left. And they that passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads, and saying: S. Vah, Thou that destroyest the temple of God and in three days dost rebuild it, save Thine own self. If Thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. C. In like manner also the chief priests with the scribes and ancients, mocking, said: S. He saved others, Himself He cannot save; if He be the king of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him; He trusted in God, let Him now deliver Him if He will have Him; for He said: I am the Son of God. C. And the self-same thing the thieves also that were crucified with Him reproached Him with. Now from the sixth hour there was a darkness over the whole earth, until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying: J. Eli, Eli, lamma sabacthani? C. That is: J. My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me? C. And some that stood there and heard said: S. This man calleth Elias. C. And immediately one of them running took a sponge and filled it with vinegar and and gave Him to drink. And the others said: S. Let be; let us see whether Elias will come to deliver Him. C. And Jesus again crying with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
Here all kneel and pause for a few moments.
And behold the veil of the temple was rent in two from top even to the bottom; and the earth quaked and the rocks were rent; and the graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints that had slept arose, and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection, came into the holy city, and appeared to many. Now the centurion and they that were with him watching Jesus, having seen the earthquake and the things that were done, were sore afraid, saying: S. Indeed this was the Son of God. C. And there were there many women afar off, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto Him: among whom was Mary Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee. And when it was evening, there came a certain rich man of Arimathea, named Joseph, who also himself was a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and asked the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded that the body should be delivered. And Joseph taking the body wrapt it up in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his own new monument, which he had hewed out in a rock. And he rolled a great stone to the door of the monument and went his way.
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 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.
22
Credo 
At the end of the homily, the Symbol or Profession of Faith or Creed, when prescribed, is sung or said:
I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, At the words that follow up to and including and became man, all bow. and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. And one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. 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.
23
Offertory
Then follows the Universal Prayer, that is, the Prayer of the Faithful or Bidding Prayers.

When all this has been done, the Offertory Chant begins.
Tob. 12:6.
Blessed be God the Father, and the only-begotten Son of God, and also the Holy Spirit: because He has shown His mercy to us.
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.
24
The Liturgy of the Eucharist
Meanwhile, the ministers place the corporal, the purificator, the chalice, the pall, and the Missal on the altar. 22. It is desirable that the faithful express their participation by making an offering, bringing forward bread and wine for the celebration of the Eucharist and perhaps other gifts to relieve the needs of the Church and of the poor.
The Priest, standing at the altar, takes the paten with the bread and holds it slightly raised above the altar with both hands, saying in a low voice:
Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, for through your goodness we have received the bread we offer you: fruit of the earth and work of human hands, it will become for us the bread of life.
Then he places the paten with the bread on the corporal. If, however, the Offertory Chant is not sung, the Priest may speak these words aloud; at the end, the people may acclaim:
O Blessed be God for ever.
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.
25
The deacon, or the Priest, pours wine and a little water into the chalice, saying quietly:
By the mystery of this water and wine may we come to share in the divinity of Christ who humbled himself to share in our humanity.
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
Concéde, quǽsumus, Dómine: ut oculis tuæ maiestátis munus oblátum, et grátiam nobis devotionis obtineat, et efféctum beátæ perennitátis acquírat.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum: qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti Deus, per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
R. Amen.
26
The Priest then takes the chalice and holds it slightly raised above the altar with both hands, saying in a low voice:
Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, for through your goodness we have received the wine we offer you: fruit of the vine and work of human hands it will become our spiritual drink.
Then he places the chalice on the corporal. If, however, the Offertory Chant is not sung, the Priest may speak these words aloud; at the end, the people may acclaim:
Blessed be God for ever.

After this, the Priest, bowing profoundly, says quietly:
With humble spirit and contrite heart may we be accepted by you, O Lord, and may our sacrifice in your sight this day be pleasing to you, Lord God.
Praefatio
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. Et cum dicit: Benedíctus, qui venit, signum crucis sibi producit a fronte ad pectus.
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spíritu tuo.
V. Sursum corda.
R. Habémus ad Dóminum.
V. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.
R. Dignum et iustum est.

de Sancta Cruce
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.
27
Then the Priest, standing at the side of the altar, washes his hands, saying quietly:
Wash me, O Lord, from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.
Canon
Finita præfatione, sacerdos extendens, elevans aliquantulum et iungens manus, elevansque ad cælum oculos, et statim demittens, profunde inclinatus ante Altare, manibus super eo positis, dicit :
Te igitur, clementíssime Pater, per Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum, Dóminum nostrum, súpplices rogámus, ac pétimus, osculatur Altare et, iunctis manibus ante pectus, dicit: uti accepta habeas et benedícas, Signat ter super Hostiam et Calicem simul, dicens: hæc dona, hæc múnera, hæc sancta sacrifícia illibáta, Extensis manibus prosequitur: in primis, quæ tibi offérimus pro Ecclésia tua sancta cathólica: quam pacificáre, custodíre, adunáre et régere dignéris toto orbe terrárum: una cum fámulo tuo Papa nostro nomen Papae et Antístite nostro nomen Episcopi et ómnibus orthodóxis, atque cathólicæ et apostólicae fídei cultóribus.
28
This prayer is omitted in the New Mass, to avoid repetition with the Canon's invocation of the Triumphant Church
Commemoratio pro vivis
Meménto, Dómine, famulórum famularúmque tuarum N. et N. Iungit manus, orat aliquantulum pro quibus orare intendit: deinde manibus extensis prosequitur: et ómnium circumstántium, quorum tibi fides cógnita est et nota devótio, pro quibus tibi offérimus: vel qui tibi ófferunt hoc sacrifícium laudis, pro se suísque ómnibus: pro redemptióne animárum suárum, pro spe salútis et incolumitátis suæ: tibíque reddunt vota sua ætérno Deo, vivo et vero.
29
Standing at the middle of the altar, facing the people, extending and then joining his hands, he says:
P. Pray, brethren brothers and sisters, that my sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God, the almighty Father.
The people rise and reply:
A. May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of his name, for our good and the good of all his holy Church.

Then the Priest, with hands extended, says the Prayer over the Offerings,
Lord, our God, make these gifts holy, and through them make us the perfect offerings to you
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.
at the end of which the people acclaim:
Amen.
Communicántes, et memóriam venerántes, in primis gloriósæ semper Vírginis Maríæ, Genetrícis Dei et Dómini nostri Iesu Christi: sed et beati Ioseph, eiusdem Virginis Sponsi,
et beatórum Apostolórum ac Mártyrum tuórum, Petri et Pauli, Andréæ, Iacóbi, Ioánnis, Thomæ, Iacóbi, Philíppi, Bartholomaei, Matthaei, Simónis et Thaddaei: Lini, Cleti, Cleméntis, Xysti, Cornélii, Cypriáni, Lauréntii, Chrysógoni, Ioánnis et Pauli, Cosmæ et Damiáni: et ómnium Sanctórum tuórum; quorum méritis precibúsque concédas, ut in ómnibus protectiónis tuæ muniámur auxílio. Iungit manus Per eúndem Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
30
Preface
Then the Priest begins the Eucharistic Prayer. Extending his hands, he says:
P. The Lord be with you.
The people reply:
A. And with your spirit.
The Priest, raising his hands, continues:
P. Lift up your hearts.
The people:
A. We lift them up to the Lord.
The Priest, with hands extended, adds:
P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
The people:
A. It is right and just.
The Priest, with hands extended, continues the Preface.
Holy Trinity
It it 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, together with Thine only-begotten Son, and the Holy Ghost, art one God, one Lord: not in the oneness of a single Person, but in the Trinity of one substance. For what we believe by Thy revelation of Thy glory, the same do we believe of Thy Son, the same of the Holy Ghost, without difference or separation. So that in confessing the true and everlasting Godhead, distinction in persons, unity in essence, and equality in majesty may be adored. Which the Angels and Archangels, the Cherubim also and Seraphim do praise: who cease not daily to cry out, with one voice saying:
At the end of the Preface he joins his hands and concludes the Preface with the people, singing or saying aloud:
A. Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
In all Masses, the Priest celebrant is permitted to sing parts of the Eucharistic Prayer provided with musical notation below, especially the principal parts. In Eucharistic Prayer I, the Roman Canon, the words included in brackets may be omitted.
Tenens manus expansas super Oblata, dicit:
Hanc igitur oblatiónem servitutis nostræ, sed et cunctae famíliæ tuæ,
quaesumus, Dómine, ut placátus accípias: diésque nostros in tua pace dispónas, atque ab ætérna damnatióne nos éripi, et in electórum tuórum iúbeas grege numerári. Iungit manus Per Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
31
EUCHARISTIC PRAYER I OR THE ROMAN CANON
The Priest, with hands extended, says:
To you, therefore, most merciful Father, we make humble prayer and petition through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord: He joins his hands and says that you accept He makes the Sign of the Cross once over the bread and chalice together, saying: and bless these gifts, these offerings, these holy and unblemished sacrifices, With hands extended, he continues: which we offer you first of all for your holy catholic Church. Be pleased to grant her peace, to guard, unite and govern her throughout the whole world, together with your servant N. our Pope and N. our Bishop, and all those who, holding to the truth, hand on the catholic and apostolic faith. * Mention may be made here of the Coadjutor Bishop, or Auxiliary Bishops, as noted in the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, n. 149.
Quam oblatiónem tu, Deus, in ómnibus, quaesumus, Signat ter super Oblata, bene díctam, adscríp tam, ra tam, rationábilem, acceptabilémque fácere dignéris: Signat semel super Hostiam, ut nobis Cor pus, et semel super Calicem, et San guis fiat dilectíssimi Fílii tui, Iungit manus, Dómini nostri Iesu Christi.
Commemoration of the Living.
Remember, Lord, your servants N. and N. The Priest joins his hands and prays briefly for those for whom he intends to pray. Then, with hands extended, he continues: and all gathered here, whose faith and devotion are known to you. For them and all who are dear to them we offer you this sacrifice of praise or they offer it for themselves and all who are dear to them, for the redemption of their souls, in hope of health and well-being, and fulfilling their vows to you, the eternal God, living and true.
Qui prídie quam paterétur, Accipit Hostiam, accépit panem in sanctas ac venerábiles manus suas, Elevat oculos ad coelum, elevátis óculis in coelum ad te Deum, Patrem suum omnipoténtem, Caput inclinat, tibi grátias agens, Signat super Hostiam, bene dixit, fregit, dedítque discípulis suis, dicens: Accípite, et manducáte ex hoc omnes.
Within the Action.
In communion with those whose memory we venerate, especially the glorious ever-Virgin Mary, Mother of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ, and blessed Joseph, Spouse of the same Virgin,
your blessed Apostles and Martyrs, Peter and Paul, Andrew,
[James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon and Jude: Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul,
Cosmas and Damian] and all your Saints: through their merits and prayers, grant that in all things we may be defended by your protecting help. [Through Christ our Lord. Amen.]
Tenens ambabus manibus Hostiam inter indices et pollices, profert verba consecrationis secrete, distincte et attente super Hostiam, et simul super omnes, si plures sint consecrandæ.

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.

34
With hands extended, the Priest continues:
Therefore, Lord, we pray: graciously accept this oblation of our service, that of your whole family;
order our days in your peace, and command that we be delivered from eternal damnation and counted among the flock of those you have chosen. He joins his hands. [Through Christ our Lord. Amen.]
Tunc, detecto Calice, dicit:
Símili modo postquam coenátum est, Ambabus manibus accipit Calicem, accípiens et hunc præclárum Cálicem in sanctas ac venerábiles manus suas: item Caput inclinat, item tibi grátias agens, Sinistra tenens Calicem, dextera signat super eum, bene dixit, dedítque discípulis suis, dicens: Accípite, et bíbite ex eo omnes.
35
Holding his hands extended over the offerings, he says:
Be pleased, O God, we pray, to bless, acknowledge, and approve this offering in very respect; make it spiritual and acceptable, so that it may become for us the Body and Blood of your most beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. He joins his hands.
Profert verba consecrationis super Calicem, attente, continuate, et secrete, tenens illum parum elevatum.

HIC EST ENIM CALIX SANGUINIS MEI, NOVI ET AETERNI TESTAMENTI: MYSTERIUM FIDEI: QUI PRO VOBIS ET PRO MULTIS EFFUNDETUR IN REMISSIONEM PECCATORUM.


Quibus verbis prolatis, deponit Calicem super Corporale, et dicens secrete:
Hæc quotiescúmque fecéritis, in mei memóriam faciétis.
Genuflexus adorat: surgit, ostendit populo, deponit, cooperit, et genuflexus iterum adorat.
36
In the formulas that follow, the words of the Lord should be pronounced clearly and distinctly, as the nature of these words requires.
On the day before he was to suffer The Priest takes the bread and, holding it slightly raised above the altar, continues: he took bread in his holy and venerable hands, He raises his eyes. and with eyes raised to heaven to you, O God, his almighty Father, giving you thanks he said the blessing, broke the bread and gave it to his disciples, saying:
Deinde disiunctis manibus dicit:
Unde et mémores, Dómine, nos servi tui, sed et plebs tua sancta, eiusdem Christi Fílii tui, Dómini nostri, tam beátæ passiónis, nec non et ab ínferis resurrectiónis, sed et in coelos gloriósæ ascensiónis: offérimus præcláræ maiestáti tuæ de tuis donis ac datis, Iungit manus, et signat ter super Hostiam, et Calicem simul, dicens: hóstiam puram, hóstiam sanctam, hóstiam immaculátam, Signat semel super Hostiam, dicens: Panem sanctum vitæ ætérnæ, et semel super Calicem, dicens: et Calicem salútis perpétuæ.
37
He bows slightly.
TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT OF IT, FOR THIS IS MY BODY, WHICH WILL BE GIVEN UP FOR YOU.
He shows the consecrated host to the people, places it again on the paten, and genuflects in adoration.
Extensis manibus prosequitur:
Supra quæ propítio ac seréno vultu respícere dignéris: et accépta habére, sicúti accépta habére dignátus es múnera púeri tui iusti Abel, et sacrifícium Patriárchæ nostri Abrahæ: et quod tibi óbtulit summus sacérdos tuus Melchísedech, sanctum sacrifícium, immaculátam hóstiam.
38
After this, the Priest continues: In a similar way, when supper was ended, He takes the chalice and, holding it slightly raised above the altar, continues: he took this precious chalice in his holy and venerable hands, and once more giving you thanks, he said the blessing and gave the chalice to his disciples, saying:
Profunde inclinatus, iunctis manibus et super Altare positis, dicit:
Súpplices te rogámus, omnípotens Deus: iube hæc perférri per manus sancti Angeli tui in sublíme altáre tuum, in conspéctu divínæ maiestátis tuæ: ut, quotquot Osculatur Altare, ex hac altáris participatióne sacrosánctum Fílii tui Iungit manus, et signat semel super Hostiam, et semel super Calicem, Cor pus, et Sán guinem sumpsérimus, Seipsum signat, dicens: omni benedictióne coelésti et grátia repleámur. Iungit manus. Per eúndem Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
39
He bows slightly.
TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND DRINK FROM IT, FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD, THE BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL COVENANT, WHICH WILL BE POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.

DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME.
The Priest shows the chalice to the people, places it on the corporal, and genuflects in adoration. Then the Priest says:
The mystery of faith.
And the people continue, acclaiming:
We proclaim your death, O Lord, and profess your Resurrection until you come again.
Commemoratio pro defunctis
Meménto étiam, Dómine, famulórum famularúmque tuárum N. et N., qui nos præcessérunt cum signo fídei, et dórmiunt in somno pacis. Iungit manus, orat aliquántulum pro iis defunctis, pro quibus orare intendit, deinde extensis manibus prosequitur: Ipsis, Dómine, et ómnibus in Christo quiescéntibus locum refrigérii, lucis pacis ut indúlgeas, deprecámur. Iungit manus, et caput inclinat, dicens: Per eúndem Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
40
Then the Priest, with hands extended, says:
Therefore, O Lord, as we celebrate the memorial of the blessed Passion, the Resurrection from the dead, and the glorious Ascension into heaven of Christ, your Son, our Lord, we, your servants and your holy people, offer to your glorious majesty
from the gifts that you have given us, this pure victim, this holy victim, this spotless victim, the holy Bread of eternal life and the Chalice of everlasting salvation.
Manu dextera percutit sibi pectus, elata aliquantulum voce dicens:
Nobis quoque peccatóribus Extensis manibus ut prius, secrete prosequitur: fámulis tuis, de multitúdine miseratiónum tuárum sperántibus, partem áliquam et societátem donáre dignéris, cum tuis sanctis Apóstolis et Martýribus: cum Ioánne, Stéphano, Matthía, Bárnaba, Ignátio, Alexándro, Marcellíno, Petro, Felicitáte, Perpétua, Agatha, Lúcia, Agnéte, Cæcília, Anastásia, et ómnibus Sanctis tuis: intra quorum nos consórtium, non æstimátor mériti, sed véniæ, quaesumus, largítor admítte. Iungit manus. Per Christum, Dóminum nostrum.
41
Be pleased to look upon them with serene and kindly countenance, and to accept them, as you were pleased to accept the gifts of your servant Abel the just, the sacrifice of Abraham, our father in faith, and the offering of your high priest Melchizedek, a holy sacrifice, a spotless victim.
Per quem hæc ómnia, Dómine, semper bona creas, Signat ter super Hostiam, et Calicem simul, dicens: sancti ficas, viví ficas, bene dícis et præstas nobis.
Discooperit Calicem, genuflectit, accipit Hostiam inter pollicem et indicem manus dexteræ: et tenens sinistra Calicem, cum Hostia signat ter a labio ad labium Calicis, dicens:
Per ip sum, et cum ip so, et in ip so, Cum ipsa Hostia signat bis inter se et Calicem, dicens: est tibi Deo Patri omnipotenti, in unitáte Spíritus Sancti,
Elevans parum Calicem cum Hostia, dicit:
omnis honor, et glória.
ponit Hostiam, Calicem Palla cooperit, genuflectit, surgit, et dicit intellegibili voce vel cantat:
Per omnia saecula saecolorum.
R. Amen.
42
Bowing, with hands joined, he continues:
In humble prayer we ask you, almighty God: command that these gifts be borne by the hands of your holy Angel to your altar on high in the sight of your divine majesty, so that all of us who through this participation at the altar receive the most holy Body and Blood of your Son He stands upright again and signs himself with the Sign of the Cross, saying: may be filled with every grace and heavenly blessing. He joins his hands. [Through Christ our Lord. Amen.]
Preparatio Communionis
Iungit manus.
Orémus: Præcéptis salutáribus móniti, et divína institutione formati audemus dicere:
Extendit manus.
Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem:
R. Sed libera nos a malo.
S. Sacerdos secrete dicit : Amen.
43
Commemoration of the Dead
With hands extended, the Priest says: Remember also, Lord, your servants N. and N., who have gone before us with the sign of faith and rest in the sleep of peace. (He joins his hands and prays briefly for those who have died and for whom he intends to
pray. Then, with hands extended, he continues:) Grant them, O Lord, we pray, and all who sleep in Christ, a place of refreshment, light and peace. He joins his hands.[Through Christ our Lord. Amen.]
Deinde manu dextera accipit inter indicem et medium digitos Patenam, quam tenens super Altare erectam, dicit secrete:
Líbera nos, quaesumus, Dómine, ab ómnibus malis, prætéritis, præséntibus et futúris: et intercedénte beáta et gloriósa semper Vírgine Dei Genetríce María, cum beátis Apóstolis tuis Petro et Paulo, atque Andréa, et ómnibus Sanctis, Signat se cum Patena a fronte ad pectus, da propítius pacem in diébus nostris: Patenam osculatur, ut, ope misericórdiæ tuæ adiúti, et a peccáto simus semper líberi et ab omni perturbatióne secúri.
Submittit Patenam Hostiæ, discooperit Calicem, genuflectit, surgit, accipit Hostiam, et eam super Calicem tenens utraque manu, frangit per medium, dicens:
Per eúndem Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum.
Et mediam partem, quam in dextera manu tenet, ponit super Patenam. Deinde ex parte, quæ in sinistra remanserat, frangit particulam, dicens:
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:
V. Per omnia saecula saeculorum.
R. Amen.
Cum ipsa particula signat ter super Calicem, dicens:
Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
44
He strikes his breast with his right hand, saying:
To us, also, your sinful servants, And, with hands extended, he continues: who hope in your abundant mercies, graciously grant some share and fellowship with your holy Apostles and Martyrs: with John the Baptist, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, [Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia] and all your Saints: admit us, we beg you, into their company, not weighing our merits, but granting us your pardon, He joins his hands. through Christ our Lord.
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.
Cooperit Calicem, genuflectit, surgit, et inclinatus Sacramento, iunctis manibus, et ter pectus percutiens, intellegibili voce dicit:
45
And he continues:
Through whom you continue to create all these good things, O Lord; you make them holy, fill them with life, bless them, and bestow them upon us.
He takes the chalice and the paten with the host and, elevating both, he says:
Through him, and with him, and in him, to you, O God, almighty Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, is all honor and glory, for ever and ever.
The people acclaim:
Amen.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: miserére nobis.
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: miserére nobis.
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: dona nobis pacem.
46
The Communion Rite
After the chalice and paten have been set down, the Priest, with hands joined, says:
At the SaviourÂ’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:
He extends his hands and, together with the people, continues:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
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 pacificáre et coadunáre dignéris: Qui vivis et regnas Deus per ómnia saecula sæculórum. Amen.
47
With hands extended, the Priest alone continues, saying:
Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. He joins his hands. The people conclude the prayer, acclaiming:
A. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever.
Then the Priest, with hands extended, says aloud:
Lord Jesus Christ, who said to your Apostles, Peace I leave you, my peace I give you, look not on our sins, but on the faith of your Church, and graciously grant her peace and unity in accordance with your will. He joins his hands. Who live and reign for ever and ever.
The people reply:
A. Amen.
The Priest, turned towards the people, extending and then joining his hands, adds:
P. The peace of the Lord be with you always.
The people reply:
A. And with your spirit.
Then, if appropriate, the deacon, or the Priest, adds:
Let us offer each other the sign of peace.
And all offer one another a sign, in keeping with local customs, that expresses peace, communion, and charity. The Priest gives the sign of peace to a deacon or minister.
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.
Then he takes the host, breaks it over the paten, and places a small piece in the chalice, saying quietly:
May this mingling of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ bring eternal life to us who receive it.
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.
Meanwhile the following is sung or said:
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, grant us peace.
The invocation may even be repeated several times if the fraction is prolonged. Only the final time, however, is grant us peace said.
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.
50
This prayer was already prayed before the Agnus Dei
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.
51
Then the Priest, with hands joined, says quietly:
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who by the will of the Father and the work of the Holy Spirit, through your death gave life to the world; free me by this your most holy Body and Blood from all my sins and from every evil; keep me always faithful to your commandments, and never let me be parted from you.
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
52
This prayer is omitted in the New Mass
Communio

53
The Priest genuflects, takes the host and, holding it slightly raised above the paten or above the chalice, while facing the people, says aloud:
Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb.
And together with the people he adds once:
Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.
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.
54
The Priest, facing the altar, says quietly:
May the Body of Christ keep me safe for eternal life.
And he reverently consumes the Body of Christ.
Communio
Matt 26:42
Pater, si non potest hic calix transíre, nisi bibam illum: fiat volúntas tua.
55
Then he takes the chalice and says quietly:
May the Blood of Christ keep me safe for eternal life.
And he reverently consumes the Blood of Christ.
Postcommunio
Dicta antiphona ad Communionem, osculatur altare, et versus ad populum dicit :
S. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spíritu tuo.
Deinde, reversus ad altare, dicit :
Orémus.
Per huius, Dómine, operatiónem mystérii: et vitia nostra purgéntur, et iusta desidéria compleántur.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum: qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti Deus, per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
R. Amen.
56
After this, he takes the paten or ciborium and approaches the communicants. The Priest raises a host slightly and shows it to each of the communicants, saying:
P. The Body of Christ.
The communicant replies:
Amen.
And receives Holy Communion. !If a deacon also distributes Holy Communion, he does so in the same manner. If any are present who are to receive Holy Communion under both kinds, the rite as described in the proper place is to be followed.
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.
57
While the Priest is receiving the Body of Christ, the Communion Chant begins.

When the distribution of Communion is over, the Priest or a deacon or an acolyte purifies the paten over the chalice and also the chalice itself. While he carries out the purification, the Priest says quietly:
What has passed our lips as food, O Lord, may we possess in purity of heart,
that what has been given to us in time may be our healing for eternity.
V. Ite, Missa est.
R. Deo grátias.
58
Then the Priest may return to the chair. If appropriate, a sacred silence may be observed for a while, or a psalm or other canticle of praise or a hymn may be sung.
Tob 12:6
We bless the God of heaven, and before all living we will praise Him; because He has shown His mercy to us.
Tunc celebrans inclinat se ante medium altaris, et manibus iunctis super illud, dicit secrete:
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.
59
Then, standing at the altar or at the chair and facing the people, with hands joined, the Priest says:
Let us pray.
All pray in silence with the Priest for a while, unless silence has just been observed. Then the Priest, with hands extended, says the Prayer after Communion,
Lord God, we worship you, a Trinity of Persons, one eternal God. May our faith, and the sacrament we receive, bring us health of mind and body
We ask this through Christ our Lord
at the end of which the people acclaim:
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.
60
The Concluding Rites
If they are necessary, any brief announcements to the people follow here.
Then the dismissal takes place. The Priest, facing the people and extending his hands, says:
P. The Lord be with you.
The people reply:
A. And with your spirit.
The Priest blesses the people, saying:
May almighty God bless you: the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The people reply:
A. Amen.
On certain days or occasions, this formula of blessing is preceded, in accordance with the rubrics, by another more solemn blessing formula or by a prayer over the people cf. pp. 000ff.
Oratio Leonis XIII

Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

O. Sancte Michaël Archangele, defende nos in proelio; contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur: tuque, Princeps militiae Caelestis, satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo, divina virtute in infernum detrude. Amen.

S. Cor Iesu sacratissimum.
O. Miserere nobis.
S. Cor Iesu sacratissimum.
O. Miserere nobis.
S. Cor Iesu sacratissimum.
O. Miserere nobis.
61
Then the deacon, or the Priest himself, with hands joined and facing the people, says:
P. Go forth, the Mass is ended.
The people reply:
A. Thanks be to God.

Then the Priest venerates the altar as usual with a kiss, as at the beginning. After making a profound bow with the ministers, he withdraws. If any liturgical action follows immediately, the rites of dismissal are omitted.

Benediction was given before the Dismissing. The dismissing is meant as it is
