Psalms 118: 137, 124
Thou art just, O Lord, and Thy judgment is right; deal with Thy servant
according to Thy mercy. -- (Ps. 118. 1). Blessed are the
undefiled in the way: who walk in the law of the Lord. V.: Glory be to
the Father . . .
COLLECT - Grant, we beseech Thee, O
Lord, that Thy people may shun all the wiles of the devil: and with pure
mind follow Thee, the only God. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son,
who liveth and reigneth . . .
Ephesians 4: 1-6 Brethren: I, a prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that you walk
worthy of the vocation in which you are called. With all humility and
mildness, with patience, supporting one another in charity, careful to
keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. One body and one
spirit, as you are called in one hope of your calling. One Lord, one
faith, one baptism. One God and Father of all, who is above all, and
through all, and in us all, who is blessed for ever and ever. Amen.
Psalms 32: 12, 6 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord: the people whom He hath
chosen for His inheritance. V.: By the word of the Lord the heavens were
established; and all the power of them by the spirit of His mouth.
Alleluia, alleluia. V.(Ps. 101. 2). O Lord, hear my prayer; and
let my cry come to Thee. Alleluia.
Matthew 22: 34 - 46
At that time the Pharisees came to Jesus,
and one of them, a doctor of the law, asked Him, tempting Him: Master,
which is the great commandment of the law? Jesus said to him: Thou shalt
love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul and
with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. And
the second is like to this: Thou shalt love Thy neighbor as thyself. One
these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets. And the
Pharisees being gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying: What think
you of Christ, whose son is He? They say to Him: David's. He saith to
them: How then doth David , in spirit, call Him Lord, saying: The Lord
saith to My Lord: Sit on my right hand until I make Thine enemies Thy
footstool? If David then call Him Lord, how is He his son? And no man
was able to answer Him a word; neither durst any man, from that day
forth, ask Him any more questions.
Daniel 9: 9, 17, 18, 19
I, Daniel, prayed to my God, saying: Hear, O Lord, the prayers of Thy
servant; show Thy face upon Thy sanctuary, and favorably look down upon
this people upon whom Thy Name is invoked, O God.
SECRET - We humbly entreat Thy
Majesty, O Lord; that these holy Mysteries which we celebrate may set us
free both from past and future sins. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy
Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost .
PREFACE (Preface of the Most Holy
Trinity) - It it truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that
we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy
Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God; Who, together with Thine
only-begotten Son, and the Holy Ghost, art one God, one Lord: not in the
oneness of a single Person, but in the Trinity of one substance. For
what we believe by Thy revelation of Thy glory, the same do we believe
of Thy Son, the same of the Holy Ghost, without difference or
separation. So that in confessing the true and everlasting Godhead,
distinction in persons, unity in essence, and equality in majesty may be
adored. Which the Angels and Archangels, the Cherubim also and Seraphim
do praise: who cease not daily to cry out, with one voice saying:
Psalm 75: 12, 13
Vow ye, and pray to the Lord your God, all you that round about Him
bring presents: to Him that is terrible, even to Him ho taketh away the
spirit of princes: to the terrible with all the kings of the earth.
POST COMMUNION -By Thy sanctifying
gifts, O almighty God, may our vices be healed, and may eternal remedies
be available unto us. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who liveth
and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost . . .
