[N.B. At Low Mass the parts within brackets are to be passed over.] The Priest, standing at the foot of the Altar, and bowing down

before it, signs himself with the sign of the Cross from the forehead to the breast, and says with a distinct voice :1

In nomine Patris, + et Filii, In the name of the Father, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen. + and of the Son, and of the

Holy Ghost. Amen,
Ther, joining his hands before his breast, ke begins the

Antiphon :

Psalm xlii. S. Judica me, Deus, et dis- P. Judge me, o God, and cerne causam meam de gente distinguish my cause from the non sancta: ab homine iniquo nation that is not holy: deliver et doloso erue me.

ceitful man. . At the beginning of High Mass, when the Priest commences at the foot of the Altar, the Choir sing the Kyrie eleison, &c. (and sometimes the Introit), which usually lasts until the Gloria in ercelsis. Those parts of the Service which are sung by the Choir are also said in a low voice by the Priest.

to all the saints, and to you, father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed [here strike the breast thrice], through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and all the Saints, and you, father, to pray to the Lord our God for me.

Then the Priest, with his hands joined, gives the Absolution, saying:

S. Misereatur vestri omnipotens Deus, et dimissis peccatis vestris, perducat vos ad vitam æternam. M. Amen.

P. May almighty God have mercy upon you, forgive you your sins, and bring you to life everlasting.

First extending, and then joining, his hands, he says audibly,

Oremus; and then ascending to the Altar, he says secretly: Aufer a nobis, quæsumus, Take away from us our iniDomine, iniquitates nostras; quities, we beseech thee, O ut ad Sancta sanctorum puris Lord : that we may be worthy mereamur mentibus introire. to enter with pure minds into Per Christum Dominum nos- the Holy of holies. Through truin. Amen.

Bowing down over the Altar, he says: Oramus te, Domine, per me- We beseech thee, O Lord, by rita sanctorum tuorum quorum the merits of thy saints whose reliquiæ hic sunt, et omnium relics are here, and of all the sanctorum, ut indulgere dig- saints, that thou would vouchneris omnia peccata mea. A- safe to forgive me all my sins. men.

Amen. [Receiving the thurible from the Deacon, he incenses the Altar,

and returns the thurible to the Deacon, who incenses the Priest only.) Then the Priest, signing himself with the sign of the Cross, reads the Introit, which see in its place, or else read one of the following:

Blessed be the Holy and Undivided Unity: we will give praise to him, because he hath shewn his mercy to us.

O Lord our Lord, how wonderful is thy name in all the earth!
Glory be to the Father, who hath created us.
Glory be to the Son, who hath redeemed us.
Glory be to the Holy Ghost, who hath sanctified us.

Glory be to the Holy and Undivided Trinity, one God, for ever and ever.



(For a Saint's Day.) The just shall flourish like the palmtree ; he shall grow up like the cedar of Libanus ; planted in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God.

It is good to give praise to the Lord; and to sing to thy name, O Most High.

The Kyrie eleison is then said. S. Kyrie eleison. M. Kyrie eleison. S. Kyrie eleison. Lord have mercy upon us.

M. Christe eleison. S. Christe eleison. M. Christe eleison. Christ have mercy upon us.

S. Kyrie eleison. M. Kyrie eleison. S. Kyrie eleison. Lord have mercy upon us. Afterwards, standing at the middle of the Altar, extending, and

then joining, his hands, and slightly bowing, he says (when it is

to be said') the Gloria in excelsis. When he says the words, We adore thee, We give thee thanks, Jesus Christ, and Re. ceive our prayer, he bows, and at the end he signs himself with the sign of the Cross.

Gloria in excelsis Deo; et in Glory be to God on high, and terra pax hominibus bonæ vo- on earth peace to men of good luntatis. Laudamus te; bene- will. We praise thee; we bless dicimus te; adoramus te; glo- thee; we adore thee; we glorificamus te. Gratias agimus rify thee.

Father. Amen. The Priest kisses the Altar, and, turning to the people, says: Ý. Dominus vobiscum. V. The Lord be with you. RY. Et cum spiritu tuo.

Ry. And with thy spirit. Then follow the Collects; at the end of the first and last of which,

the Acolyte answers, Amen. The Collects vary with the season. They may be found in their

proper place in the Missal, or any of the following may be used instead.

Defend us, O Lord, we beseech thee, from all dangers of soul and body; and by the intercession of the glorious and blessed Mary ever Virgin, Mother of God, the blessed apostles Peter and Paul, the blessed N. and all thy Saints, grant us, in thy mercy, health and peace; that all adversities and errors being done away, thy Church may serve thee with a pure and undisturbed devotion. Through, &c.

"The Gloria is omitted during Lent and Advent, and in Masses for the Dead. At High Mass the Choir sing the Gloria (after the words “ Gloria in excelsis Deo," which are entoned by the Priest), and the officiating Clergy wait until its conclusion, after which the Celebrant proceeds with the Collects.

2 The same remark applies to Epistle, Grud.ul, Gospel, offertory, Communion, and Post-Coinmunion.
