the Holy Ghost, the Lord

ceedeth from the Father and
the Son; who together with

Amen.

§ Expl. Revealed to them what they foretold.

+ Expl. The bread by anticipation is called an unspotted host, because all the prayers that go before, and follow the consecration have a reference to the moment of consecration, when the victim becomes present, and is offered to God.

When the Priest puts the wine and water into the



God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and didst reform it again by a still greater wonder: grant that, by the mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of his divine nature, who vouchsafed to become partaker of our human nature, namely Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who with thee and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth one God world without end. Amen.

TN spiritu humilitatis, et in animocontrito suscipiamur a te, Domine, et sic fiat sacrificium nostrum in conspectu tuo hodie, ut placeat tibi, Domine Deus.

Expl. The sacrifice of the Mass is necessarily pleasing to God of itself, since the victim there offered, is he, of whom the Father said: This is my beloved Son. But the oblation, which sinful man makes of this victim; the vows and prayers which accompany the oblation; and the communion, by which he partakes of

That I may hear the voice of praise, and publish all thy wonderful works.

O Lord, I have loved the beauty of thy house, and the place where thy glory dwelleth.

Destroy not, O God, my soul with the impious: nor my life with men of blood.

In whose hands are iniquities their right hand is filled with bribes.


But I have walked in my innocency rescue me, and have mercy on me.

Thro' the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Then the Priest turns
