THE ORDER OF THE MASS

 

Introductory

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Lord be with you. And with your spirit.

Brothers and sisters, let us acknowledge our sins and so prepare ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries.

Penitential act

I confess to Almighty God / and to you, my brothers and sisters, / that I have greatly sinned, / in my thoughts and in my words, / in what I have done / and in what I have failed to do, / (all striking their breast) through my fault, / through my fault, / through my most grievous fault; / therefore I ask Blessed Mary ever-Virgin, / all the angels and saints, / and you, my brothers and sisters, / to pray for me to the Lord our God.

May Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins, and bring us to everlasing life. Amen

Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

Christ, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

Glory to God in the highest

Glory to God in the highest, / and on earth peace to people of good will. / We praise you, / we bless you, / we adore you, / we glorify you, / we give you thanks for your great glory / Lord God, heavenly King, / O God, almighty Father. / Lord Jesus Christ, / Only Begotten Son, / Lord God, Lamb of God, / Son of the Father, / you take away the sins of the world, / have mercy on us; / you take away the sins of the world, / receive our prayer; / you are seated at the right hand of the Father, / have mercy on us. / For you alone are the Holy One, / you alone are the Lord, / you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, / with the Holy Spirit, / in the glory of God the Father. / Amen.

I believe in one God

I believe in one God, / the Father almighty, / maker of heaven and earth, / of all things visible and invisible. / I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, / the Only Begotten Son of God, / born of the Father before all ages. / God from God, Light from Light, / true God from true God, / begotten, not made, / consubstantial with the Father; / through him all things were made. / For us men and for our salvation / he came down from heaven, / and by the Holy Spirit / was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, / and became man.

For our sake / he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, / he suffered death and was buried, / and rose again on the third day / in accordance with the Scriptures. / He ascended into heaven / and is seated at the right hand of the Father. / He will come again in glory / to judge the living and the dead, / and his kingdom will have no end. / I believe in the Holy Spirit, / the Lord, the giver of life, / who proceeds from the Father and the Son, / who with the Father and the Son / is adored and glorified, / who has spoken through the prophets. / I believe in one, holy, / catholic and apostolic Church. / I confess one baptism / for the forgiveness of sins / and I look forward / to the resurrection of the dead, / and the life of the world to come. / Amen.

Offertory

Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation, for through your goodness we have received the bread we offer : fruit of the earth and work human hands, it will become for us the bread of life.
Blessed be God for ever.

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, for through your goodness we have received the wine we offer : fruit of the vine and work of human hands, it will become our spiritual drink.
Blessed be God for ever.

Pray, brothers and sisters, that my sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God, the almighty Father.

May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of his name, for our good, and the good of all his holy Church.

The Eucharistic Prayer

The Lord be with you. And with your spirit.

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

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

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.

The mystery of faith.

We proclaim your death, O Lord, and profess your resurrection until you come again.

Through him, 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. Amen.

Our Father

At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and for ever.

Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your apostles : Peace I leave you, my peace I give you; look not on our sins, but on the faith of your Church, and graciously grant her peace and unity in accordance with your will. Who live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.

The peace of the Lord be with you always.   And with your spirit.

Let us offer each other the sign of peace.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world : have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world : have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world : grant us peace.

Behold the lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb.

Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

Conclusion

The Lord be with you.   And with your spirit.

May almighty God bless you, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Mass is ended, go in peace. Thanks be to God.
