Eucharistic Prayer IV (Latin-English)

it is not permitted to change the Preface of this Eucharistic Prayer because of the structure of the Prayer itself, which presents a summary of the history of salvation. Praefatio huius Precis eucharisticae mutare non licet ratione structurae ipsius Precis, quae summarium historiae salutis praebet.

V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.

V. Lift up your hearts.
R. We lift them up to the Lord.

V. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
R. It is right and just.


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.

It is truly right to give you thanks,
truly just to give you glory, Father most holy,
for you are the one God living and true,
existing before all ages and abiding for all eternity,
dwelling in unapproachable light;
yet you, who alone are good, the source of life,
have made all that is,
so that you might fill your creatures with blessings
and bring joy to many of them by the glory of your light.

Vere dignum est tibi grátias ágere,
vere iustum est te glorificáre, Pater sancte,
quia unus es Deus vivus et verus,
qui es ante saecula et pérmanes in aetérnum,
inaccessíbilem lucem inhábitans;
sed et qui unus bonus atque fons vitae cuncta fecísti,
ut creatúras tuas benedictiónibus adimpléres
multásque laetificáres tui lúminis claritáte.

And so, in your presence are countless hosts of Angels,
who serve you day and night
and, gazing upon the glory of your face,
glorify you without ceasing.
With them we, too, confess your name in exultation,
giving voice to every creature under heaven,
as we acclaim:
Et ídeo coram te
innúmerae astant turbae angelórum,
qui die ac nocte sérviunt tibi et,
vultus tui glóriam contemplántes,
te incessánter gloríficant.
Cum quibus et nos et,
per nostram vocem,
omnis quae sub caelo est creatúra nomen tuum
in exsultatióne confitémur, canéntes:

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.

Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.
Pleni sunt caeli et terra glória tua.
Hosánna in excélsis.
Benedíctus qui venit in nómine Dómini.
Hosánna in excélsis.

The Priest, with hands extended, says:

We give you praise, Father most holy,
for you are great
and you have fashioned all your works
in wisdom and in love.
You formed man in your own image
and entrusted the whole world to his care,
so that in serving you alone, the Creator,
he might have dominion over all creatures.
And when through disobedience he had lost your friendship,
you did not abandon him to the domain of death.
For you came in mercy to the aid of all,
so that those who seek might find you.
Time and again you offered them covenants
and through the prophets
taught them to look forward to salvation.

Sacerdos, manibus extensis, dicit:

Confitémur tibi, Pater sancte, quia magnus es
et ómnia ópera tua in sapiéntia et caritáte fecísti.
Hóminem ad tuam imáginem condidísti,
eíque commisísti mundi curam univérsi,
ut, tibi soli Creatóri sérviens,
creatúris ómnibus imperáret.
Et cum amicítiam tuam,
non oboédiens, amisísset,
non eum dereliquísti in mortis império.
Omnibus enim misericórditer subvenísti,
ut te quaeréntes invenírent.
Sed et foédera plúries homínibus obtulísti
eósque per prophétas erudísti in exspectatióne salútis.

And you so loved the world, Father most holy,
that in the fullness of time
you sent your Only Begotten Son to be our Savior.
Made incarnate by the Holy Spirit
and born of the Virgin Mary,
he shared our human nature
in all things but sin.
To the poor he proclaimed the good news of salvation,
to prisoners, freedom,
and to the sorrowful of heart, joy.
To accomplish your plan,
he gave himself up to death,
and, rising from the dead,
he destroyed death and restored life.

Et sic, Pater sancte, mundum dilexísti,
ut, compléta plenitúdine témporum,
Unigénitum tuum nobis mítteres Salvatórem.
Qui, incarnátus de Spíritu Sancto
et natus ex María Vírgine,
in nostra condiciónis forma est
conversátus per ómnia absque peccáto;
salútem evangelizávit paupéribus,
redemptiónem captívis, maestis corde laetítiam.
Ut tuam vero dispensatiónem impléret,
in mortem trádidit semetípsum ac,
 resúrgens a mórtuis,
mortem destrúxit vitámque renovávit.

And that we might live no longer for ourselves
but for him who died and rose again for us,
he sent the Holy Spirit from you, Father,
as the first fruits for those who believe,
so that, bringing to perfection his work in the world,
he might sanctify creation to the full.

Et, ut non ámplius nobismetípsis viverémus,
sed sibi qui pro nobis mórtuus est atque surréxit,
a te, Pater, misit Spíritum Sanctum primítias credéntibus,
qui, opus suum in mundo perfíciens,
omnem sanctificatiónem compléret.

He joins his hands and, holding them extended over the offerings, says:

Therefore, O Lord, we pray:
may this same Holy Spirit
graciously sanctify these offerings,

Iungit manus, easque expansas super oblata tenens, dicit:

Quaesumus ígitur, Dómine,
ut idem Spíritus Sanctus haec múnera sanctificáre dignétur,

He joins his hands and makes the Sign of the Cross once over the bread and chalice together, saying:

that they may become
the Body and + Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ

iungit manus et signat semel super panem et calicem simul, dicens:

ut Corpus et + Sanguis fiant Dómini nostri Iesu Christi


He joins his hands.

for the celebration of this great mystery,
which he himself left us
as an eternal covenant.

iungit manus

ad hoc magnum mystérium celebríndum,
quod ipse nobis relíquit in fodus aetérnum

In the formulas that follow, the words of the Lord should be pronounced clearly and distinctly, as the nature of these words requires.

For when the hour had come
for him to be glorified by you, Father most holy,
having loved his own who were in the world,
he loved them to the end:
and while they were at supper,

He takes the bread and, holding it slightly raised above the altar, continues:

he took bread, blessed and broke it,
and gave it to his disciples, saying,

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

Ipse enim, cum hora venísset
ut glorificarétur a te, Pater sancte,
ac dilexísset suos qui erant in mundo,
in finem diléxit eos:
et cenántibus illis

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

accépit panem, benedíxit ac 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, he continues:

In a similar way,

He takes the chalice and, holding it slightly raised above the altar, continues:

taking the chalice filled with the fruit of the vine,
he gave thanks,
and gave the chalice to his disciples, saying:

Postea prosequitur:

Símili modo accipit calicem,

eumque parum elevatum super altare tenens, prosequitur:

accípiens cálicem, ex genímine vitis replétum,
grátias egit, 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, with hands extended, the Priest says:

Therefore, O Lord,
as we now celebrate the memorial of our redemption,
we remember Christ’s Death
and his descent to the realm of the dead,
we proclaim his Resurrection
and his Ascension to your right hand,
and, as we await his coming in glory,
we offer you his Body and Blood,
the sacrifice acceptable to you
which brings salvation to the whole world.

Deinde sacerdos, extensis manibus, dicit:

Unde et nos, Dómine,
redemptiónis nostrae memoriále nunc celebrántes,
mortem Christi eiúsque descénsum ad ínferos recólimus,
eius resurrectiónem et ascensiónem ad tuam déxteram profitémur,
et, exspectántes ipsíus advéntum in glória,
offérimus tibi eius Corpus et Sánguinem,
sacrifícium tibi acceptábile
et toti mundo salutáre.

Look, O Lord, upon the Sacrifice
which you yourself have provided for your Church,
and grant in your loving kindness
to all who partake of this one Bread and one Chalice
that, gathered into one body by the Holy Spirit,
they may truly become a living sacrifice in Christ
to the praise of your glory.

Réspice, Dómine, in Hóstiam,
quam Ecclésiae tuae ipse parásti,
et concéde benígnus ómnibus
qui ex hoc uno pane participábunt et cálice,
ut, in unum corpus a Sancto Spíritu congregáti,
in Christo hóstia viva perficiántur,
ad laudem glóriae tuae.

Therefore, Lord, remember now
all for whom we offer this sacrifice:
especially your servant Francis our Pope,
N. our Bishop,(and his assistant Bishops)
and the whole Order of Bishops,
all the clergy,
those who take part in this offering,
those gathered here before you,
your entire people,
and all who seek you with a sincere heart.

Nunc ergo, Dómine, ómnium recordáre,
pro quibus tibi hanc oblatiónem offérimus:
in primis fámuli tui, Papae nostri N.,
Epíscopi nostri N. (eiusque Epíscopis adiutóribus)
et Episcopórum órdinis univérsi,
sed et totíus cleri,
 et offeréntium, et circumstántium,
et cuncti pópuli tui,
et ómnium, qui te quaerunt corde sincéro.

Remember also
those who have died in the peace of your Christ
and all the dead,
whose faith you alone have known.
To all of us, your children,
grant, O merciful Father,
that we may enter into a heavenly inheritance
with the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God,
with blessed Joseph, her Spouse,
and with your Apostles and Saints in your kingdom.
There, with the whole of creation,
freed from the corruption of sin and death,
may we glorify you through Christ our Lord,

Meménto étiam illórum,
qui obiérunt in pace Christi tui,
et ómnium defunctórum,
quorum fidem tu solus cognovísti.
Nobis ómnibus, fíliis tuis, clemens Pater, concéde,
ut caeléstem hereditátem cónsequi valeámus
cum beáta Vírgine, Dei Genetríce, María,
cum beáto Ioseph, eius Sponso,
cum Apóstolis et Sanctis tuis
in regno tuo, ubi cum univérsa creatúra,
a corruptióne peccáti et mortis liberáta,
te glorificémus per Christum Dóminum nostrum,

He joins his hands.

through whom you bestow on the world all that is good.

iungit manus,

per quem mundo bona cuncta largíris.

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.

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.

The people acclaim:

Amen.

Then follows the Communion Rite.

Populus acclamat:

Amen.

Deinde sequitur ritus Communionis
