At the Collects.

0 Lord, vouchsafe favourably to hear the prayers which thy priest offers to thee for the Church and for me.

I earnestly beseech thee to grant me those graces and virtues of which I have need, in order to deserve thy love. Fill my heart with eternal gratitude for all the blessings which thou hast conferred upon me, with a lively horror of sin, and with perfect charity towards my neighbour. Make my whole life worthy of one who is thy child, I deserve not to be heard for my own sake, O my God, but I beseech thy mercy through the infinite merits of thy divine Son.

O divine Jesus, inexhaustible fountain of all good things, open to us, we beseech thee, the interior of thy Heart; that having entered, by pious meditation, into this august sanctuary of divine love, we may fix for ever there our hearts, as the place wherein are found the treasure, the repose, and the happiness of holy souls.

At the Epistle. Thou hast vouchsafed, O Lord, to teach us thy sacred truths by the prophets and apostles: oh, grant that we may so improve by their doctrine and examples in the love of thy holy name and of thy holy law, that we may shew forth by our lives whose disciples we are; that we may no longer follow the corrupt inclinations of flesh and blood, but master all our passions; that we may be ever directed by thy light, and strengthened by thy Then the Gradual, Tract, Alleluia, or Sequence.

I will not leave you orphans: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more. But ye see me, because I live, and you shall live In that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.

At the Gospel.

O God, the Father of light, blessed for ever be thy mercy, whereby thou hast called the nations of the earth from the darkness of ignorance and the shades of death into the marvellous light of thy faith; grant that all mankind, being delivered by thee from the slavery of Satan and of sin, may take upon them the light burden and sweet yoke of thy holy law; that thy name may be known and praised through all the earth. Behold, O Lord, how many are there who still remain in the darkness of error and of sin; and amongst those who know thy name, behold, how many with an unspeakable malice love and worship themselves and created things, instead of thee, who art the only and infinite Good! Grant, then, we beseech thee, by thy almighty grace, that all mankind may become one family of saints, seeking only thy kingdom and justice. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


O Lord Jesus, who, according to thy Father's will, hast declared unto the world the message of the Gospel; grant that we may receive it into our minds, embrace it with our wills, preserve it in our memory, and practise it in our lives; and being united here with those elect sheep who hear thy voice, may be numbered with them also at the last day at thy right hand, and hear thee say, "Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world."

Per evangelica dicta delean- By the words of the Gospel tur nostra delicta. may our sins be blotted out.

Nicene Creed.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, Factorem coeli et terrae, visibllium omnium et invisibilium.

Et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum, et ex Patre natum ante omnia saecula. Deum de Deo; Lumen de Lumine; Deum verum de Deo vero; genitum non factum; consubstantialem Patri, per quem omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines, et propter nostram salutem, descendit de ant et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto, ex Maria Virgine: Et Homofactus Est. [Hie genufiectitur.] Crucifixus etiam pro nobis: sub Pontio Pilato passus et sepuitus est. Et resurrexit tertia die secundum Scripturas; et ascendit in ccelum, sedet ad dexteram Pa tris: et iterum venturus est cum gloria judicare vivos et mortuos. cujus regni non erit finis.

Et in Spiritum Sanctum Dominum et vivificantem, qui ex Patre Filioque procedit: qui cum Patre et Filio simul adoratur et conglorificatur: qui locutus est per prophetas. Et unam sanctam Catholicam et Apostolicam Ecclesiam. Confiteor unum baptisma in remisname peccatorum. Et expecto resurrectionem, mortuor, et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen.

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, born of the Father before all ages. God of God; Light of Light; true God of true God; begotten not made; sub stantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary:


the people kneeldoivn.] He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and. was buried. 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 I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and life-giver, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son: who together with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified: who spake by the prophets. And 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.

Prayer at the Sermon.

I will hear what the Lord will say unto me.

0 Jesus, light of the world, enlighten my understanding, that I may understand thy word; and cleanse my heart, that it may bring forth the fruits of the same.

At the Creed.

I firmly believe—because God who is Infallible Truth hath so revealed it to the Holy Catholic Church, and through the Church to us—I firmly believe that there is one only God, in Three Divine Persons, equal and distinct, whose names are Father, Son, and Holy Ghost: that the Son became man, and through the operation of the Holy Spirit took flesh and a human soul in the womb of the most pure Virgin Mary, died for us upon the cross, rose again, ascended into heaven, and will come from thence at the end of the world to judge all the living and dead, to give paradise to the good, and hell to the wicked, for ever; and furthermore, upon the same motive, I believe every thing that the Holy Church believes and teaches. In this faith and for this faith I desire to live and die. Grant, O Lord, that my life may be conformable with my faith, that my faith may be animated by good works, that I may never be ashamed to declare myself a Catholic, and may constantly maintain the interests of thy holy religion. Draw closer to me, Lord, the bonds that bind me to thy Holy Church; put into my heart a spirit of perfect obedience to its lawful pastors. In its bosom I became thy child, and in its bosom I desire to live and die. Amen.
