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 firstly
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 Francis our Pope
and N. our Bishop, [and his assistant Bishops]

Sacerdos, manibus extensis, dicit:

Te ígitur, clementíssime Pater,
per Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum, Dóminum nostrum,
súpplices rogámus ac pétimus,

iungit manus et dicit:

uti accépta hábeas

signat semel super panem et calicem simul, dicens:

et benedícas + haec dona, haec múnera, haec sancta sacrifícia illibáta,

extensis manibus prosequitur:

in primis, quae tibi offérimus pro Ecclésia tua sancta cathólica:
quam pacificáre, custodíre, adunáre et régere dignéris
toto orbe terrárum:
una cum fámulo tuo Papa nostro N.
et Antístite nostro N. [eiusque Epíscopis adiutóribus]
et ómnibus orthodóxis atque cathólicae et apostólicae fídei cultóribus.
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, 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 paying their homage to you,
the eternal God, living and true.

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.)
Manibus extensis, prosequitur:

Hanc ígitur oblatiónem servitútis nostrae,
sed et cunctae famíliae tuae,
quaesumus, Dómine,
ut placátus accípias:
diésque nostros in tua pace dispónas,
atque ab aetérna damnatióne nos éripi
et in electórum tuórum iúbeas grege numerári.

Iungit manus.

(Per Christum Dóminum nostrum. Amen.)

Holding his hands extended over the offerings, he says:

Be pleased, O God, we pray,
to bless, acknowledge,
and approve this offering in every 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.


Tenens manus expansas super oblata, dicit:

Quam oblatiónem tu, Deus, in ómnibus, quaesumus,
benedíctam, adscríptam, ratam, rationábilem,
acceptabilémque fácere dignéris:
ut nobis Corpus et Sanguis fiat dilectíssimi Fílii tui,
Dómini nostri Iesu Christi.

Iungit manus.

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,

He 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:

In formulis quae sequuntur, verba Domini proferantur distincte et aperte, prouti natura eorundem verborum requirit.

Qui, prídie quam paterétur,

accipit panem, eumque parum elevatum super altare tenens, prosequitur:

accépit panem in sanctas ac venerábiles manus suas,

elevat oculos,

et elevátis óculis in caelum
ad te Deum Patrem suum omnipoténtem,
tibi grátias agens
benedíxit, fregit,
dedítque discípulis suis, dicens:
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.

parum se inclinat

ACCÍPITE ET MANDUCÁTE EX HOC OMNES:

HOC EST ENIM CORPUS MEUM,
QUOD PRO VOBIS TRADÉTUR.

Hostiam consecratam ostendit populo, reponit super patenam, et genuflexus adorat.
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:

Postea prosequitur:

Símili modo, postquam cenátum est,

accipit calicem, eumque parum elevatum super altare tenens, prosequitur:

accípiens et hunc praeclárum cálicem
in sanctas ac venerábiles manus suas,
item tibi grátias agens
benedíxit, dedítque discípulis suis, dicens:


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.

He shows the chalice to the people, places it on the corporal, and genuflects in adoration.


parum se inclinat

ACCÍPITE ET BÍBITE EX EO OMNES:

HIC EST ENIM CALIX SÁNGUINIS MEI
NOVI ET AETÉRNI TESTAMÉNTI,
QUI PRO VOBIS ET PRO MULTIS EFFUNDÉTUR
IN REMISSIÓNEM PECCATÓRUM.

HOC FÁCITE IN MEAM COMMEMORATIÓNEM.

Calicem ostendit populo, deponit super corporale, et genuflexus adorat.
Then he says:

The mystery of faith.

And the people continue, acclaiming:

We proclaim your Death, O Lord,
and profess your Resurrection
until you come again.

Or:

When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup,
we proclaim your Death, O Lord,
until you come again.

Or:

Save us, Savior of the world,
for by your Cross and Resurrection
you have set us free.
Deinde dicit:

Mystérium fídei.

Et populus prosequitur, acclamans:

Mortem tuam annuntiámus, Dómine,
et tuam resurrectiónem confitémur,
donec vénias.

Vel:

Quotiescúmque manducámus panem hunc et cálicem bíbimus,
mortem tuam annuntiámus, Dómine,
donec vénias.

Vel:

Salvátor mundi, salva nos,
qui per crucem et resurrectiónem tuam
liberásti nos.

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.

Deinde sacerdos, extensis manibus, dicit:

Unde et mémores, Dómine,
nos servi tui, sed et plebs tua sancta,
eiúsdem Christi, Fílii tui, Dómini nostri,
tam beátae passiónis,
necnon et ab ínferis resurrectiónis,
sed et in caelos gloriósae ascensiónis:
offérimus praeclárae maiestáti tuae
de tuis donis ac datis
hóstiam puram, hóstiam sanctam, hóstiam immaculátam,
Panem sanctum vitae aetérnae
et Cálicem salútis perpétuae.

Be pleased to look upon these offerings
with a serene and kindly countenance,
and to accept them,
as once 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.
Supra quae propítio ac seréno vultu respícere dignéris:
et accépta habére,
sícuti accépta habére dignátus es
múnera púeri tui iusti Abel,
et sacrifícium Patriárchae nostri Abrahae,
et quod tibi óbtulit summus sacérdos tuus Melchísedech,
sanctum sacrifícium, immaculátam hóstiam.

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.)

Inclinatus, iunctis manibus, prosequitur:

Súpplices te rogámus, omnípotens Deus:
iube haec perférri per manus sancti Angeli tui
in sublíme altáre tuum,
in conspéctu divínae maiestátis tuae;
ut, quotquot ex hac altáris participatióne
sacrosánctum Fílii tui Corpus et Sánguinem sumpsérimus,

erigit se atque seipsum signat, dicens:

omni benedictióne caelésti et grátia repleámur.

Iungit manus.

(Per Christum Dóminum nostrum. Amen.)

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.)


Commemoratio pro defunctis

Manibus extensis, dicit:

Meménto étiam, Dómine, famulórum famularúmque tuárum N. et N.,
qui nos praecessérunt cum signo fídei,
et dórmiunt in somno pacis.

Iungit manus et orat aliquantulum pro iis defunctis, pro quibus orare intendit. Deinde, extensis manibus, prosequitur:

Ipsis, Dómine,
et ómnibus in Christo quiescéntibus,
locum refrigérii, lucis et pacis,
ut indúlgeas, deprecámur.

Iungit manus.

(Per Christum Dóminum nostrum. Amen.)

He strikes his breast with his right hand, saying:

To us, also, your servants, who, though sinners,

And, with hands extended, he continues:

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 beseech you,
into their company,
not weighing our merits,
but granting us your pardon,

He joins his hands.

through Christ our Lord.

Manu dextera percutit sibi pectus, dicens:

Nobis quoque peccatóribus fámulis tuis,

et extensis manibus prosequitur:

de multitúdine miseratiónum tuárum sperántibus,
partem áliquam et societátem donáre dignéris
cum tuis sanctis Apóstolis et Martyribus:
cum Ioánne, Stéphano, Matthía, Bárnaba,
(Ignátio, Alexándro,
Marcellíno, Petro,
Felicitáte, Perpétua,
Agatha, Lúcia,
Agnéte, Caecília, Anastásia)
et ómnibus Sanctis tuis:
intra quorum nos consórtium,
non aestimátor mériti,
sed véniae, quaesumus, largítor admítte.

Iungit manus.

Per Christum Dóminum nostrum.

And he continues:

Through whom
you continue to make all these good things, O Lord;
you sanctify them, fill them with life,
bless them, and bestow them upon us.

Et prosequitur:

Per quem haec ómnia, Dómine,
semper bona creas,
sanctíficas, vivíficas, benedícis,
et praestas nobis.

He takes the chalice and the paten with the host and, raising both, he says:

Through him, and with him, and in him,
O God, almighty Father,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
all glory and honor is yours,
for ever and ever.

The people acclaim:

Amen.

Then follows the Communion Rite.
Accipit patenam cum hostia et calicem, et utrumque elevans, dicit:

Per ipsum, et cum ipso, et in ipso,
est tibi Deo Patri omnipoténti,
in unitáte Spíritus Sancti,
omnis honor et glória
per ómnia saecula saeculórum.

Populus acclamat:

Amen.

Deinde sequitur ritus communionis
