First (Low) Sunday after Easter (Divine Mercy Sunday) High Mass

Welcome to Phone Missal! The beta version of the site was rushed out in order to provide the faithful, especially those still learning the Extraordinary Form Mass, with a resource to use since so many parishes are unable to have pew missals or other handouts due to the virus.

Explanations as to what the priest and servers are doing and where they are standing are provided to help you follow along. The instructions in red text are generally based on local customs at our local parish in our diocese. But they are just suggestions as there are no hard and fast rules for the congregation. The church where you attend Mass may have slightly different customs. You should follow those.

Note: The altar boys and schola generally make the responses on your behalf in the Extraordinary Form High Mass, but the congregation may join in singing some of the prayers with the schola. Those are noted below. But as at a Low Mass, you are always free to simply pray quietly to yourself. (With the caveat about local customs noted above.)

Please provide us with your feedback to help us make this a more useful resource for you. Thank you and may God bless you!

A High Mass (also known as a sung Mass or a Missa cantata) is typically celebrated with a priest, a master of ceremonies (MC), a thurifer, two acolytes, a crucifer, and up to six torchbearers. There will be six candles lit on the altar. The Missal will be open on the stand on the right-side (known as the Epistle side) of the altar.
High Mass notes: One difference from the Ordinary Form that you will notice is that prayers and actions often happen in parallel in the Extraordinary Form. In the OF, things always happen sequentially. For instance, the schola may chant the Introit during the procession or as the priest and servers are praying the prayers at the foot of the altar. This can be confusing at first, but over time you will become accustomed to this.

Vidi Aquam

On Sundays only, the the Vidi aquam may take place immediately after the procession and before the prayers at the foot of the altar.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Father is in the center

The priest, after processing in and genuflecting to the Tabernacle with the servers, waits for the MC to take his biretta to the sedilia (which is Latin for chairs) and return. Bowing down, he makes the Sign of the Cross while the MC, other servers and faithful kneel, and says in Latin: 
KNEEL

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,  and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God.

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.

The priest alternates with the MC in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.

Ps. 42, 1-5. 

P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles. 

S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth. 

P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me? 

S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God. 

P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 

S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

The priest repeats the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God. 

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth. 

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says in Latin:

P. Our help  is in the Name of the Lord. 

S. Who made heaven and earth. 

Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor in Latin:

P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

The priest answers: 

P. Amen.

The MC says the Confiteor in Latin. You may wish to pray these words silently to yourself in either Latin or English. It would be appropriate to bow your head slightly as you pray this since it is a penitential prayer.

S. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

Then the priest, with his hands joined, says in Latin:

P. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

S. Amen.

The MC (and you if you wish) make the Sign of the Cross, with the priest saying in Latin:

P. May the  almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.

S. Amen. 

Bowing down, the priest proceeds in Latin:

P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us. 

S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee. 

P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. 

S. And grant us Thy salvation. 

P. O Lord, hear my prayer. 

S. And let my cry come before Thee. 

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

The priest extends then joins his hands and, after audibly saying “Oremus” (“Let us pray”), he ascends to the altar while saying the following prayer silently in Latin.

Let us pray. 

Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

His hands joined, and bowing down over the middle of the altar, the priest says:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

At the conclusion of these prayers and prior to the Introit, the priest, accompanied by the MC and thurifer, will incense the altar for the first time. After the incensation of the altar is complete, the MC will incense the priest.

Introit 

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

Moving to the Epistle-side (the right side) of the altar, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross and reads the Introit in Latin. The Introit is chanted by the schola, but as noted above, they may have already chanted this during the procession, the prayers at the foot of the altar or during the incensation. The Introit is the first of the variable texts, called “the propers,” that change depending on the Mass of the day.

Pet 2:2
As newborn babes, alleluia, desire the rational milk without guile, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
Ps. 80. 2
Rejoice to God our Helper; sing aloud to the God of Jacob.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
As newborn babes, alleluia, desire the rational milk without guile, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Kyrie 

Father is in the center

At a sung Mass, the schola will chant the Kyrie, but this may happen before or as the priest says the words. You may chant the Kyrie with the schola if you wish.
The priest moves to the middle and alternates with the MC saying the only Greek words in the Mass:

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Christe, eléison. 
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

S. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

Gloria 

STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.
Afterwards, standing at the middle of the altar, extending and then joining his hands, and bowing slightly, the priest intones the first words of the Gloria, which the schola will then continue. The priest will quietly say the rest of the Gloria. When he is finished, the MC will often lead the the priest to the sedilia to sit until the schola is finished.
(The Gloria is omitted during Lent, Advent and in Requiem Masses.)

Gloria in excelsis Deo Et in terra pax homínibus bonæ voluntátis. Laudámus te. Benedícimus te. Bow head Adorámus te. Glorificámus te. Bow head Grátias ágimus tibi propter magnam glóriam tuam. Dómine Deus, Rex coeléstis, Deus Pater omnípotens. Dómine Fili unigénite, Bow head Jesu Christe. Dómine Deus, Agnus Dei, Fílius Patris. Qui tollis peccáta mundi, miserére nobis. Qui tollis peccáta mundi, Bow head súscipe deprecatiónem nostram. Qui sedes ad déxteram Patris, miserére nobis. Quóniam tu solus Sanctus. Tu solus Dóminus. Tu solus Altíssimus, Bow head Jesu Christe. Cum Sancto Spíritu  in glória Dei Patris. Amen.

Glory be to God on high, and on earth peace to men of good will. We praise Thee. We bless Thee. Bow head We adore Thee. We glorify Thee. Bow head We give Thee thanks for Thy great glory. O Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father almighty. O Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son. O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father. Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Who takest away the sins of the world, Bow head receive our prayer. Who sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For Thou only are holy. Thou only art the Lord. Thou only art most high, O Bow head Jesus Christ. Together with the Holy Ghost  in the glory of God the Father. Amen. 

Then the priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The Lord be with you.

S. And with thy spirit.

 Collect 

STAND

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Collect is the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. It changes with each Mass. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
The priest returns to the Epistle-side of the altar and chants the Collect in Latin:

P. Oremus.

P. Let us pray.

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that we who have celebrated the Paschal Feast, may, by Thy bounty, retain its fruits in our daily habits and behavior.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The Epistle, Gradual and Alleluia

SIT
The Epistle, or lesson, is like the second reading in the Ordinary Form in that it is frequently (though certainly not always) from St. Paul. Along with the Gradual and Alleluia, the Epistle changes depending on the Mass of the day.
After chanting the Collect, the priest will also chant the Epistle.
Epistle

Lesson from the first letter of St John the Apostle
1 John 5:4-10
Dearly beloved, Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory, which overcometh the world, our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is He that came by water and blood, Jesus Christ: not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit which testifieth that Christ is the truth. And there are three who give testimony in heaven: the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that give testimony on earth: the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three are one. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater: for this is the testimony of God, which is greater, because He hath testified of His Son. He that believeth in the Son of God hath the testimony of God in himself.

S. Thanks be to God.

After the Epistle is finished, Father will place his left hand on the altar and the MC responds “Deo gratias.”
Father will now quietly say and the schola will chant the Gradual and Alleluia (or the Tract which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons). If the chants will be lengthy, the MC may lead Father to the sedilia to sit until they are nearly finished.
Gradual and Alleluia

Alleluia, alleluia. 
Matt 28:7
V. On the day of My Resurrection, saith the Lord, I will go before you into Galilee. Alleluia.
John 20:26
After eight days, the doors being shut, Jesus stood in the midst of His disciples and said: Peace be to you. Alleluia.

When the Alleluia is nearly finished, the MC will lead Father back to the altar to meet the thurifer if he was sitting. Father will impose incense and then say the prayers below.
The thurifer, the MC with the Missal and the two Acolytes with candles will meet in the middle and begin a procession to the Gospel-side of the altar, where Father will proclaim the Gospel.

Munda Cor Meum

Father is in the center

As the server transfers the Missal to the Gospel-side of the altar, the priest moves to the middle of the altar and bowing down says in Latin:

Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen. 

Gospel 

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Except for Solemn Mass, when he will remain in the middle, the priest moves from the middle to the left side of the altar, and begins in Latin:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Continuation ✠ of the Holy Gospel according to John
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
John 20. 19-31
At that time, when it was late that same day, the first of the week, and the doors were shut, where the disciples were gathered together for fear of the Jews, Jesus came, and stood in the midst and said to them: Peace be to you. And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. The disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord. He said therefore to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father hath sent Me, I also send you. When He had said this, He breathed on them, and He said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost: whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained. Now Thomas, one of the Twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe. And after eight days, again His disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace be to you. Then He saith to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither, and see My hands, and bring hither thy hand, and put into My side; and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered and said to Him: my Lord and my God. Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen Me, Thomas, thou hast believed; blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed. Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of His disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that, believing, you may have life in His Name. 

At the conclusion of the Gospel…

S. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

P. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Sermon

SIT
After the Gospel, if there is to be a sermon, the priest will return to the middle of the altar and remove his maniple, which signifies that there is a pause in the celebration of the Mass. The MC, thurifer and acolytes will also move to the middle, genuflect and then take a seat at the sedilia (chairs) in the sanctuary. After the sermon, the priest will return and put the maniple back on his arm and then continue as below.

Creed 

Father is in the center

On Sundays and certain Feasts the priest recites the Creed, a summary of the Catholic Doctrine. This profession of faith was drawn up in the General Councils of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381 to condemn heretics who denied that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost  are God.
As with the Gloria, Father will intone the first words of the Credo and then the schola will continue with the chant while the priest says the rest quietly. Often the MC will lead Father to the sedilia to sit when the schola finishes.
You may chant the Credo with the schola if you wish.
STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et in visibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Bow head Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de coelis. 

Here kneel down. Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Rise. 

Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. 

Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio Bow head simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri saeculi. Amen.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things, visible and invisible. And in one Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. And born of the Father, before all ages. God of God: Light of Light: true God of true God. Begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven. 

Here kneel down. And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. Rise.

He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, of whose kingdom there shall be no end. 

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son. Who together, with the Father and the Son, is Bow head adored and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets. And in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead. And the life  of the world to come. Amen. 

Offertory 

The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says in Latin:

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

SIT
Then the priest says and the schola chants the Offertory verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. 

Matt 28:2; 28:5-6
An Angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and said to the women; He whom you seek is risen, as He said. Alleluia.

This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says in Latin:

Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier’s lance.

O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen. 

 We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen. 

Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God. 

Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.

Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless  this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name. 

Father will now incense the gifts and the altar.

Lavabo

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice, and then says in Latin:

Ps. 25. 6-12

I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

“This majestic prayer of offering to the Most Holy Trinity states in detail the particular purpose for which the holy Sacrifice is offered.”1

Father is in the center

Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

The Orate Fratres

The priest kisses the altar and turns towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, and say audibly “Orate fratres.” He then turns back to the altar and continues silently in Latin:

P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty. 

The MC answers on our behalf in Latin:

S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.  

The priest answers in a low voice:

P. Amen. 

Secret 

This prayer is one of the variable parts of the Mass, called the propers, which changes based on the Mass being celebrated and is prayed silently. It is “the completion of the Offertory and introduces the actual oblation of the Sacrifice in the great prayer of the Canon”1 of the Mass.

Receive, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the gifts of Thine exultant Church: and to her whom Thou hast given cause for so great joy, grant the fruit of perpetual happiness.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Preface 

STAND
The priest begins the Preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with important Feasts.
You may respond with the MC and schola the following:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spíritu tuo.

P. Sursum corda.

S. Habémus ad Dóminum.

P. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.

S. Dignum et justum est.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Lift up your hearts. 

S. We have lifted them up to the Lord. 

P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

S. It is right and just. 

The particular Preface changes for certain Masses, with the Preface of the Holy Trinity used on most Sundays. 

Easter
It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, at all times to praise Thee, O Lord, but more gloriously especially on this day when Christ our Pasch was sacrificed. For He is the Lamb Who hath taken away the sins of the world: Who by dying hath destroyed our death: and by rising again hath restored us to life. And therefore with Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dominations, and with all the hosts of the heavenly army, we sing the hymn of Thy glory, evermore saying:

Sanctus

Immediately at the conclusion of the Preface the priest begins the Sanctus and the bells are rung three times.
The schola will also chant the Sanctus, which you may join if you wish. It is customary to Cross yourself at the Benedictus.
KNEEL

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

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest!  Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! 

Canon 

The Canon of the Mass is made up of the fixed forms of the prayers from the Sanctus to the Pater Noster. It is said silently by the priest.

Prayers for the Church

We therefore, humbly pray and beseech Thee, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ; Thy Son, our Lord, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to accept and bless. these  gifts, these  presents, these  holy unspotted Sacrifices, which in the first place we offer Thee for Thy holy Catholic Church to which vouchsafe to grant peace, as also to preserve, unite, and govern it throughout the world, together with Thy servant N. our Pope, and N. our Bishop, and all orthodox believers and professors of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith. 

Commemoration of the Living

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants and handmaidens, N. et N. and of all here present, whose faith and devotion are known unto Thee, for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves, their families and friends, for the redemption of their souls, for the health and salvation they hope for; and who now pay their vows to Thee, the everlasting, living and true God. 

We pray in union with and honor the memory, especially of the glorious ever Virgin Mary, mother of our God and Lord Jesus Christ: as also of the blessed Joseph, her Spouse, and of the blessed Apostles and Martyrs Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and of all Thy Saints, through whose merits and prayers, grant that we may in all things be defended by the help of Thy protection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Prayers at the Consecration

Spreading his hands over the oblation, the bells are rung one time to signal that the Consecration is approaching and the priest says in Latin:

We therefore beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this oblation of our service, as also of Thy whole family; and to dispose our days in Thy peace, preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of Thine Elect. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all respects, to bless,  approve,  ratify,  make worthy and acceptable; that it may be made for us the Body  and Blood  of Thy most beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Consecration of the Host

Who, the day before He suffered, took bread into His holy and venerable hands, and with His eyes lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed  it, broke it and gave it to His disciples saying: Take and eat ye all of this, 

The words of the Consecration of the Host:

FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

After pronouncing the words of the Consecration, the priest, kneeling, adores the Sacred Host; rising, he elevates It, then placing It on the corporal, again adores It. After this he never disjoins his fingers and thumbs, except when he is to take the Host, until after the washing of his fingers during the ablutions.
You may wish to look up at the Sacred Host, with faith, piety, and love, saying to yourself: MY LORD and MY GOD!

Consecration of the Wine

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands He blessed  , and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this,  

The words of Consecration of the Chalice:

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT, THE MYSTERY OF FAITH; WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

The priest kneels and adores the Precious Blood; rising, he elevates the Chalice, and setting it down he covers it and adores it again. 
You may wish to look up at the Chalice and say to yourself something such as: BE MINDFUL O LORD, OF THY CREATURE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED BY THY PRECIOUS BLOOD!
After the elevation of the Chalice, the priest says in a low voice in Latin:

As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in remembrance of Me.

Prayers After Consecration

The priest continues silently in Latin:

Wherefore, O Lord, we Thy servants, as also Thy holy people, calling to mind the blessed Passion of the same Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, and also His Resurrection from the dead and His glorious Ascension into heaven: do offer unto Thy most excellent Majesty of Thine own gifts, bestowed upon us, a pure  Victim, a holy  Victim, an unspotted  Victim, the holy  Bread of eternal life, and the Chalice ☩ of everlasting salvation. 

Upon which vouchsafe to look with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou wert graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our patriarch Abraham, and that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim.

We most humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine majesty, that as many as shall partake of the most holy Body  and Blood  of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Commemoration of the Dead

Remember also, O Lord, Thy servants and handmaids N. and N., who are gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace; Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The priest says the first words, “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in a somewhat elevated tone of voice, to symbolize an act of public self-humiliation; at the same time he strikes his breast in a token of contrition.

To us also, Thy sinful servants, confiding in the multitude of Thy mercies, vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with Thy holy Apostles and Martyrs, with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia, and with all Thy Saints, into whose company we beseech Thee to admit us, not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses. Through Christ our Lord. 

By Whom, O Lord, Thou dost ever create, sanctify,  quicken,  bless,  and give unto us all these good things. 

He uncovers the Chalice, and genuflects: then taking the Host in his right hand, and holding the Chalice in his left, he signs with the Sign of the Cross five times across the Chalice, saying:

By Him,  and with Him,  and in Him  is to Thee, God the Father  almighty, in the unity of the Holy  Ghost, all honor and glory. 

Replacing the Host, and covering the Chalice, he kneels down, and rising again, he says in Latin:

P. Per omnia secula saecolorum.

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

Pater Noster 

In the Extraordinary Form, the priest alone says the Our Father.
You may, however, join the schola and MC in chanting the “Sed libera nos a malo” response.
STAND

Oremus: etc.

Let us pray. Instructed by Thy saving precepts, and following Thy divine institution, we are bold to say: 

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: 

S. Sed libera nos a malo. 

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. 

S. But deliver us from evil.

P. Amen.   

The priest continues silently in Latin: 

Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may be always free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. 

Who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth God,

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

KNEEL

P. Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The peace  of the Lord be  always with  you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

He puts a Particle of the Sacred Host into the Chalice, saying in Latin:

May this mixture and consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ be to us who receive it effectual unto eternal life. Amen. 

Agnus Dei

He covers the Chalice, genuflects and rises; then bowing down and striking his breast thrice, he says the Angus Dei.
You may join the schola in chanting the Agnus Dei if you wish.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast grant us peace. 

Prayers for Holy Communion

With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers in Latin:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen. 

Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

Communion of the Priest

The priest genuflects, rises and says in Latin:

I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord. 

Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says in Latin “Domine, non sum dignus…” three times devoutly and humbly while the bells are rung:

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time. Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:

What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 

After the priest consumes the Host, the servers move to the credence table to put away the bells and retrieve the patens they will use during the distribution of Communion.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:

The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Holy Communion

In many places there is often no longer an additional Confiteor immediately before Communion, however it is still a pious custom of many of the faithful to pray it quietly on their own even if the altar boys or sacred ministers do not recite it.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon me, forgive me my sins, and bring me unto life everlasting. Amen. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant me pardon, absolution, and remission of my sins. Amen. 

Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:

Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccáta mundi. 

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world. 

And then he says three times in Latin the following. 
In some places it is a custom for the congregation, even at a Low Mass, to quietly pray these words in Latin outloud:

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.  

If you will be receiving Communion, now is typically an appropriate time to get up and go to the altar rail.
Note: In the Extraordinary Form, Communion is received on the tongue while kneeling (if there are no physical impediments) at the altar rail.

You do not say “Amen”, the priest says it at the end of the prayer. 
The priest, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host, says the following prayer as he administers Holy Communion to you: 

P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.

Ablutions

Father is in the center

After Communion, the priest returns to the altar and says silently:

Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy. 

Then he holds out the Chalice to the server who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:

May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution at the right side of the altar. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass.

Communion and Post Communion Verses

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Communion and Post Communion verses are the final two propers, or variable parts, of the Mass. The priest goes to the Missal on the epistle side and says the Communion verse. (The schola will have already chanted this prayer.)

John 20:27
Put in thy hand, and know the place of the nails, alleluia; and be not faithless, but believing, alleluia, alleluia.

Father returns to the middle, kisses the altar and the returns to the epistle side where he chants the Post Communion.
STAND

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Oremus

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

We beseech Thee, O Lord, our God, to make the most holy Mysteries which Thou hast given us as a defense of our renewal, a remedy for us now, and in the future.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Conclusion 

Father is in the center

The priest turns to the people and chants: 

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Ite Missa est.

S. Deo Gratias.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Go, the Mass is ended.

S. Thanks be to God.

KNEEL
The priest turns back to the altar and says silently in Latin:

May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He kisses the altar, turns to the people and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:

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

S. Amen. 

Last Gospel

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Then turning to the gospel-side of the altar, the priest says:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

This Gospel is recited at the end of most Masses. In it “St. John declares that Christ, the Word made Flesh, is the source of life on earth, the light in the darkness, and the love that will last forever.”1 The priest traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:

The beginning  of the holy Gospel according to John. 

S. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

John. 1, 1-14. 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he was to testify concerning the Light. 

That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

Here all kneel. And the Word was made flesh, Rise  

and dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

R. Thanks be to God.

After the Last Gospel there are no Leonine prayers as at a Low Mass.

Recessional

STAND
After Mass, and after the conclusion of the recessional hymn, it is customary for the faithful to kneel for a moment in thanksgiving for the Holy Mass just offered. You may wish to add prayers of thanksgiving for the priest who celebrated the Mass; your parish and bishop; holy priests, religious and faithful persecuted for their fidelity; and for the great gift of Summorum Pontificum, which Pope Benedict XVI gave us in 2007.

Easter Sunday High Mass

Welcome to Phone Missal! The beta version of the site was rushed out in order to provide the faithful, especially those still learning the Extraordinary Form Mass, with a resource to use since so many parishes are unable to have pew missals or other handouts due to the virus.

Explanations as to what the priest and servers are doing and where they are standing are provided to help you follow along. The instructions in red text are generally based on local customs at our local parish in our diocese. But they are just suggestions as there are no hard and fast rules for the congregation. The church where you attend Mass may have slightly different customs. You should follow those.

Note: The altar boys and schola generally make the responses on your behalf in the Extraordinary Form High Mass, but the congregation may join in singing some of the prayers with the schola. Those are noted below. But as at a Low Mass, you are always free to simply pray quietly to yourself. (With the caveat about local customs noted above.)

Please provide us with your feedback to help us make this a more useful resource for you. Thank you and may God bless you!

A High Mass (also known as a sung Mass or a Missa cantata) is typically celebrated with a priest, a master of ceremonies (MC), a thurifer, two acolytes, a crucifer, and up to six torchbearers. There will be six candles lit on the altar. The Missal will be open on the stand on the right-side (known as the Epistle side) of the altar.
High Mass notes: One difference from the Ordinary Form that you will notice is that prayers and actions often happen in parallel in the Extraordinary Form. In the OF, things always happen sequentially. For instance, the schola may chant the Introit during the procession or as the priest and servers are praying the prayers at the foot of the altar. This can be confusing at first, but over time you will become accustomed to this.

Vidi Aquam

On Sundays only, the the Vidi aquam may take place immediately after the procession and before the prayers at the foot of the altar.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Father is in the center

The priest, after processing in and genuflecting to the Tabernacle with the servers, waits for the MC to take his biretta to the sedilia (which is Latin for chairs) and return. Bowing down, he makes the Sign of the Cross while the MC, other servers and faithful kneel, and says in Latin: 
KNEEL

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,  and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God.

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.

The priest alternates with the MC in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.

Ps. 42, 1-5. 

P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles. 

S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth. 

P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me? 

S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God. 

P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 

S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

The priest repeats the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God. 

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth. 

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says in Latin:

P. Our help  is in the Name of the Lord. 

S. Who made heaven and earth. 

Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor in Latin:

P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

The priest answers: 

P. Amen.

The MC says the Confiteor in Latin. You may wish to pray these words silently to yourself in either Latin or English. It would be appropriate to bow your head slightly as you pray this since it is a penitential prayer.

S. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

Then the priest, with his hands joined, says in Latin:

P. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

S. Amen.

The MC (and you if you wish) make the Sign of the Cross, with the priest saying in Latin:

P. May the  almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.

S. Amen. 

Bowing down, the priest proceeds in Latin:

P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us. 

S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee. 

P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. 

S. And grant us Thy salvation. 

P. O Lord, hear my prayer. 

S. And let my cry come before Thee. 

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

The priest extends then joins his hands and, after audibly saying “Oremus” (“Let us pray”), he ascends to the altar while saying the following prayer silently in Latin.

Let us pray. 

Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

His hands joined, and bowing down over the middle of the altar, the priest says:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

At the conclusion of these prayers and prior to the Introit, the priest, accompanied by the MC and thurifer, will incense the altar for the first time. After the incensation of the altar is complete, the MC will incense the priest.

Introit 

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

Moving to the Epistle-side (the right side) of the altar, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross and reads the Introit in Latin. The Introit is chanted by the schola, but as noted above, they may have already chanted this during the procession, the prayers at the foot of the altar or during the incensation. The Introit is the first of the variable texts, called “the propers,” that change depending on the Mass of the day.

Ps. 1:38; 1:18; 1:5-6
I arose, and am still with Thee, alleluia; Thou hast laid Thy hand upon me, alleluia; Thy knowledge is become wonderful, alleluia, alleluia.
Ps. 138. 1, 2
Lord, Thou hast searched Me and known Me; Thou knowest my sitting down and My rising up. 
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
I arose, and am still with Thee, alleluia; Thou hast laid Thy hand upon me, alleluia; Thy knowledge is become wonderful, alleluia, alleluia.

Kyrie 

Father is in the center

At a sung Mass, the schola will chant the Kyrie, but this may happen before or as the priest says the words. You may chant the Kyrie with the schola if you wish.
The priest moves to the middle and alternates with the MC saying the only Greek words in the Mass:

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Christe, eléison. 
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

S. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

Gloria 

STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.
Afterwards, standing at the middle of the altar, extending and then joining his hands, and bowing slightly, the priest intones the first words of the Gloria, which the schola will then continue. The priest will quietly say the rest of the Gloria. When he is finished, the MC will often lead the the priest to the sedilia to sit until the schola is finished.
(The Gloria is omitted during Lent, Advent and in Requiem Masses.)

Gloria in excelsis Deo Et in terra pax homínibus bonæ voluntátis. Laudámus te. Benedícimus te. Bow head Adorámus te. Glorificámus te. Bow head Grátias ágimus tibi propter magnam glóriam tuam. Dómine Deus, Rex coeléstis, Deus Pater omnípotens. Dómine Fili unigénite, Bow head Jesu Christe. Dómine Deus, Agnus Dei, Fílius Patris. Qui tollis peccáta mundi, miserére nobis. Qui tollis peccáta mundi, Bow head súscipe deprecatiónem nostram. Qui sedes ad déxteram Patris, miserére nobis. Quóniam tu solus Sanctus. Tu solus Dóminus. Tu solus Altíssimus, Bow head Jesu Christe. Cum Sancto Spíritu  in glória Dei Patris. Amen.

Glory be to God on high, and on earth peace to men of good will. We praise Thee. We bless Thee. Bow head We adore Thee. We glorify Thee. Bow head We give Thee thanks for Thy great glory. O Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father almighty. O Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son. O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father. Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Who takest away the sins of the world, Bow head receive our prayer. Who sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For Thou only are holy. Thou only art the Lord. Thou only art most high, O Bow head Jesus Christ. Together with the Holy Ghost  in the glory of God the Father. Amen. 

Then the priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The Lord be with you.

S. And with thy spirit.

 Collect 

STAND

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Collect is the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. It changes with each Mass. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
The priest returns to the Epistle-side of the altar and chants the Collect in Latin:

P. Oremus.

P. Let us pray.

O God, who, on this day, through Thine only-begotten Son, hast conquered death, and thrown open to us the gate of everlasting life, give effect by thine aid to our desires, which Thou dost anticipate and inspire

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The Epistle, Gradual and Alleluia

SIT
The Epistle, or lesson, is like the second reading in the Ordinary Form in that it is frequently (though certainly not always) from St. Paul. Along with the Gradual and Alleluia, the Epistle changes depending on the Mass of the day.
After chanting the Collect, the priest will also chant the Epistle.
Epistle

Lesson from the first letter of St. Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians
1 Cor 5:7-8
Brethren, purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new paste, as you are unleavened: for Christ our Pasch is sacrificed. Therefore let us feast, not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

S. Thanks be to God.

After the Epistle is finished, Father will place his left hand on the altar and the MC responds “Deo gratias.”
Father will now quietly say and the schola will chant the Gradual and Alleluia (or the Tract which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons). If the chants will be lengthy, the MC may lead Father to the sedilia to sit until they are nearly finished.
Gradual and Alleluia

Alleluia, alleluia
Ps. 117:24; 117:1
This is the day which the Lord hath made: let us rejoice and be glad in it. 
V. Give praise unto the Lord, for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever. Alleluia, alleluia. 
1 Cor. 5. 7
Christ our Pasch is immolated. 

Sequentia
Christians! to the Paschal Victim offer your thankful praises.
The Lamb the sheep redeemeth: Christ, who only is sinless, reconcileth sinners to the Father.
Death and life contended in that conflict stupendous: the Prince of Life, who died, deathless reigneth.
Speak, Mary, declaring what thou sawest wayfaring.
“The tomb of Christ who now liveth: and likewise the glory of the Risen.
Bright Angels attesting, the shroud and napkin resting.
Yea, Christ my hope is arisen: to Galilee He goeth before you.”
We know that Christ is risen, henceforth ever living: Have mercy, Victor King, pardon giving. Amen. Alleluia. 

When the Alleluia is nearly finished, the MC will lead Father back to the altar to meet the thurifer if he was sitting. Father will impose incense and then say the prayers below.
The thurifer, the MC with the Missal and the two Acolytes with candles will meet in the middle and begin a procession to the Gospel-side of the altar, where Father will proclaim the Gospel.

Munda Cor Meum

Father is in the center

As the server transfers the Missal to the Gospel-side of the altar, the priest moves to the middle of the altar and bowing down says in Latin:

Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen. 

Gospel 

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Except for Solemn Mass, when he will remain in the middle, the priest moves from the middle to the left side of the altar, and begins in Latin:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Continuation ✠ of the Holy Gospel according to Mark
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Mark 16:1-7
At that time, Mary Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought sweet spices, that coming they might anoint Jesus. And very early in the morning, the first day of the week, they came to the sepulchre, the sun being now risen. And they said one to another: Who shall roll us back the stone from the door of the sepulchre? And looking, they saw the stone rolled back. For it was very great. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed with a white robe, and they were astonished. Who saith to them, Be not affrighted; ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified: He is risen, He is not here; behold the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples, and Peter, that He goeth before you into Galilee; there you shall see Him, as He told you.  

At the conclusion of the Gospel…

S. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

P. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Sermon

SIT
After the Gospel, if there is to be a sermon, the priest will return to the middle of the altar and remove his maniple, which signifies that there is a pause in the celebration of the Mass. The MC, thurifer and acolytes will also move to the middle, genuflect and then take a seat at the sedilia (chairs) in the sanctuary. After the sermon, the priest will return and put the maniple back on his arm and then continue as below.

Creed 

Father is in the center

On Sundays and certain Feasts the priest recites the Creed, a summary of the Catholic Doctrine. This profession of faith was drawn up in the General Councils of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381 to condemn heretics who denied that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost  are God.
As with the Gloria, Father will intone the first words of the Credo and then the schola will continue with the chant while the priest says the rest quietly. Often the MC will lead Father to the sedilia to sit when the schola finishes.
You may chant the Credo with the schola if you wish.
STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et in visibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Bow head Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de coelis. 

Here kneel down. Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Rise. 

Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. 

Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio Bow head simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri saeculi. Amen.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things, visible and invisible. And in one Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. And born of the Father, before all ages. God of God: Light of Light: true God of true God. Begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven. 

Here kneel down. And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. Rise.

He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, of whose kingdom there shall be no end. 

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son. Who together, with the Father and the Son, is Bow head adored and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets. And in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead. And the life  of the world to come. Amen. 

Offertory 

The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says in Latin:

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

SIT
Then the priest says and the schola chants the Offertory verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. 

Ps. 75:9-10.
The earth trembled and was still when God arose in judgment, alleluia.

This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says in Latin:

Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier’s lance.

O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen. 

 We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen. 

Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God. 

Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.

Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless  this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name. 

Father will now incense the gifts and the altar.

Lavabo

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice, and then says in Latin:

Ps. 25. 6-12

I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

“This majestic prayer of offering to the Most Holy Trinity states in detail the particular purpose for which the holy Sacrifice is offered.”1

Father is in the center

Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

The Orate Fratres

The priest kisses the altar and turns towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, and say audibly “Orate fratres.” He then turns back to the altar and continues silently in Latin:

P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty. 

The MC answers on our behalf in Latin:

S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.  

The priest answers in a low voice:

P. Amen. 

Secret 

This prayer is one of the variable parts of the Mass, called the propers, which changes based on the Mass being celebrated and is prayed silently. It is “the completion of the Offertory and introduces the actual oblation of the Sacrifice in the great prayer of the Canon”1 of the Mass.

We beseech Thee, O Lord, accept the prayers of Thy people together with the Sacrifice they offer, that what has been begun by the Paschal Mysteries, by Thy working may profit us unto eternal healing.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Preface 

STAND
The priest begins the Preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with important Feasts.
You may respond with the MC and schola the following:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spíritu tuo.

P. Sursum corda.

S. Habémus ad Dóminum.

P. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.

S. Dignum et justum est.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Lift up your hearts. 

S. We have lifted them up to the Lord. 

P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

S. It is right and just. 

The particular Preface changes for certain Masses, with the Preface of the Holy Trinity used on most Sundays. 

Easter
It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, at all times to praise Thee, O Lord, but more gloriously especially on this day when Christ our Pasch was sacrificed. For He is the Lamb Who hath taken away the sins of the world: Who by dying hath destroyed our death: and by rising again hath restored us to life. And therefore with Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dominations, and with all the hosts of the heavenly army, we sing the hymn of Thy glory, evermore saying:

Sanctus

Immediately at the conclusion of the Preface the priest begins the Sanctus and the bells are rung three times.
The schola will also chant the Sanctus, which you may join if you wish. It is customary to Cross yourself at the Benedictus.
KNEEL

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

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest!  Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! 

Canon 

The Canon of the Mass is made up of the fixed forms of the prayers from the Sanctus to the Pater Noster. It is said silently by the priest.

Prayers for the Church

We therefore, humbly pray and beseech Thee, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ; Thy Son, our Lord, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to accept and bless. these  gifts, these  presents, these  holy unspotted Sacrifices, which in the first place we offer Thee for Thy holy Catholic Church to which vouchsafe to grant peace, as also to preserve, unite, and govern it throughout the world, together with Thy servant N. our Pope, and N. our Bishop, and all orthodox believers and professors of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith. 

Commemoration of the Living

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants and handmaidens, N. et N. and of all here present, whose faith and devotion are known unto Thee, for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves, their families and friends, for the redemption of their souls, for the health and salvation they hope for; and who now pay their vows to Thee, the everlasting, living and true God. 

We pray in union with and honor the memory, especially of the glorious ever Virgin Mary, mother of our God and Lord Jesus Christ: as also of the blessed Joseph, her Spouse, and of the blessed Apostles and Martyrs Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and of all Thy Saints, through whose merits and prayers, grant that we may in all things be defended by the help of Thy protection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Prayers at the Consecration

Spreading his hands over the oblation, the bells are rung one time to signal that the Consecration is approaching and the priest says in Latin:

We therefore beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this oblation of our service, as also of Thy whole family; and to dispose our days in Thy peace, preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of Thine Elect. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all respects, to bless,  approve,  ratify,  make worthy and acceptable; that it may be made for us the Body  and Blood  of Thy most beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Consecration of the Host

Who, the day before He suffered, took bread into His holy and venerable hands, and with His eyes lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed  it, broke it and gave it to His disciples saying: Take and eat ye all of this, 

The words of the Consecration of the Host:

FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

After pronouncing the words of the Consecration, the priest, kneeling, adores the Sacred Host; rising, he elevates It, then placing It on the corporal, again adores It. After this he never disjoins his fingers and thumbs, except when he is to take the Host, until after the washing of his fingers during the ablutions.
You may wish to look up at the Sacred Host, with faith, piety, and love, saying to yourself: MY LORD and MY GOD!

Consecration of the Wine

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands He blessed  , and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this,  

The words of Consecration of the Chalice:

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT, THE MYSTERY OF FAITH; WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

The priest kneels and adores the Precious Blood; rising, he elevates the Chalice, and setting it down he covers it and adores it again. 
You may wish to look up at the Chalice and say to yourself something such as: BE MINDFUL O LORD, OF THY CREATURE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED BY THY PRECIOUS BLOOD!
After the elevation of the Chalice, the priest says in a low voice in Latin:

As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in remembrance of Me.

Prayers After Consecration

The priest continues silently in Latin:

Wherefore, O Lord, we Thy servants, as also Thy holy people, calling to mind the blessed Passion of the same Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, and also His Resurrection from the dead and His glorious Ascension into heaven: do offer unto Thy most excellent Majesty of Thine own gifts, bestowed upon us, a pure  Victim, a holy  Victim, an unspotted  Victim, the holy  Bread of eternal life, and the Chalice ☩ of everlasting salvation. 

Upon which vouchsafe to look with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou wert graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our patriarch Abraham, and that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim.

We most humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine majesty, that as many as shall partake of the most holy Body  and Blood  of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Commemoration of the Dead

Remember also, O Lord, Thy servants and handmaids N. and N., who are gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace; Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The priest says the first words, “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in a somewhat elevated tone of voice, to symbolize an act of public self-humiliation; at the same time he strikes his breast in a token of contrition.

To us also, Thy sinful servants, confiding in the multitude of Thy mercies, vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with Thy holy Apostles and Martyrs, with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia, and with all Thy Saints, into whose company we beseech Thee to admit us, not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses. Through Christ our Lord. 

By Whom, O Lord, Thou dost ever create, sanctify,  quicken,  bless,  and give unto us all these good things. 

He uncovers the Chalice, and genuflects: then taking the Host in his right hand, and holding the Chalice in his left, he signs with the Sign of the Cross five times across the Chalice, saying:

By Him,  and with Him,  and in Him  is to Thee, God the Father  almighty, in the unity of the Holy  Ghost, all honor and glory. 

Replacing the Host, and covering the Chalice, he kneels down, and rising again, he says in Latin:

P. Per omnia secula saecolorum.

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

Pater Noster 

In the Extraordinary Form, the priest alone says the Our Father.
You may, however, join the schola and MC in chanting the “Sed libera nos a malo” response.
STAND

Oremus: etc.

Let us pray. Instructed by Thy saving precepts, and following Thy divine institution, we are bold to say: 

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: 

S. Sed libera nos a malo. 

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. 

S. But deliver us from evil.

P. Amen.   

The priest continues silently in Latin: 

Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may be always free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. 

Who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth God,

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

KNEEL

P. Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The peace  of the Lord be  always with  you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

He puts a Particle of the Sacred Host into the Chalice, saying in Latin:

May this mixture and consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ be to us who receive it effectual unto eternal life. Amen. 

Agnus Dei

He covers the Chalice, genuflects and rises; then bowing down and striking his breast thrice, he says the Angus Dei.
You may join the schola in chanting the Agnus Dei if you wish.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast grant us peace. 

Prayers for Holy Communion

With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers in Latin:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen. 

Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

Communion of the Priest

The priest genuflects, rises and says in Latin:

I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord. 

Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says in Latin “Domine, non sum dignus…” three times devoutly and humbly while the bells are rung:

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time. Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:

What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 

After the priest consumes the Host, the servers move to the credence table to put away the bells and retrieve the patens they will use during the distribution of Communion.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:

The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Holy Communion

In many places there is often no longer an additional Confiteor immediately before Communion, however it is still a pious custom of many of the faithful to pray it quietly on their own even if the altar boys or sacred ministers do not recite it.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon me, forgive me my sins, and bring me unto life everlasting. Amen. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant me pardon, absolution, and remission of my sins. Amen. 

Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:

Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccáta mundi. 

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world. 

And then he says three times in Latin the following. 
In some places it is a custom for the congregation, even at a Low Mass, to quietly pray these words in Latin outloud:

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.  

If you will be receiving Communion, now is typically an appropriate time to get up and go to the altar rail.
Note: In the Extraordinary Form, Communion is received on the tongue while kneeling (if there are no physical impediments) at the altar rail.

You do not say “Amen”, the priest says it at the end of the prayer. 
The priest, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host, says the following prayer as he administers Holy Communion to you: 

P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.

Ablutions

Father is in the center

After Communion, the priest returns to the altar and says silently:

Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy. 

Then he holds out the Chalice to the server who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:

May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution at the right side of the altar. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass.

Communion and Post Communion Verses

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Communion and Post Communion verses are the final two propers, or variable parts, of the Mass. The priest goes to the Missal on the epistle side and says the Communion verse. (The schola will have already chanted this prayer.)

1 Cor 5:7-8
Christ our Pasch is immolated, alleluia: therefore let us feast with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. 

Father returns to the middle, kisses the altar and the returns to the epistle side where he chants the Post Communion.
STAND

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Oremus

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

Pour forth upon us, O Lord, the spirit of Thy love, that, by Thy loving kindness, Thou mayest make to be of one mind those whom Thou hast satisfied with the Paschal Sacraments. 

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Conclusion 

Father is in the center

The priest turns to the people and chants: 

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Ite Missa est.

S. Deo Gratias.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Go, the Mass is ended.

S. Thanks be to God.

KNEEL
The priest turns back to the altar and says silently in Latin:

May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He kisses the altar, turns to the people and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:

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

S. Amen. 

Last Gospel

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Then turning to the gospel-side of the altar, the priest says:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

This Gospel is recited at the end of most Masses. In it “St. John declares that Christ, the Word made Flesh, is the source of life on earth, the light in the darkness, and the love that will last forever.”1 The priest traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:

The beginning  of the holy Gospel according to John. 

S. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

John. 1, 1-14. 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he was to testify concerning the Light. 

That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

Here all kneel. And the Word was made flesh, Rise  

and dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

R. Thanks be to God.

After the Last Gospel there are no Leonine prayers as at a Low Mass.

Recessional

STAND
After Mass, and after the conclusion of the recessional hymn, it is customary for the faithful to kneel for a moment in thanksgiving for the Holy Mass just offered. You may wish to add prayers of thanksgiving for the priest who celebrated the Mass; your parish and bishop; holy priests, religious and faithful persecuted for their fidelity; and for the great gift of Summorum Pontificum, which Pope Benedict XVI gave us in 2007.

1 “Latin-English Booklet Missal,” Coalition in Support of Ecclesia Dei, Fourth Edition, 2008.

Holy Thursday (1962) High Mass

Welcome to Phone Missal! The beta version of the site was rushed out in order to provide the faithful, especially those still learning the Extraordinary Form Mass, with a resource to use since so many parishes are unable to have pew missals or other handouts due to the virus.

Explanations as to what the priest and servers are doing and where they are standing are provided to help you follow along. The instructions in red text are generally based on local customs at our local parish in our diocese. But they are just suggestions as there are no hard and fast rules for the congregation. The church where you attend Mass may have slightly different customs. You should follow those.

Note: The altar boys and schola generally make the responses on your behalf in the Extraordinary Form High Mass, but the congregation may join in singing some of the prayers with the schola. Those are noted below. But as at a Low Mass, you are always free to simply pray quietly to yourself. (With the caveat about local customs noted above.)

Please provide us with your feedback to help us make this a more useful resource for you. Thank you and may God bless you!

A High Mass (also known as a sung Mass or a Missa cantata) is typically celebrated with a priest, a master of ceremonies (MC), a thurifer, two acolytes, a crucifer, and up to six torchbearers. There will be six candles lit on the altar. The Missal will be open on the stand on the right-side (known as the Epistle side) of the altar.
High Mass notes: One difference from the Ordinary Form that you will notice is that prayers and actions often happen in parallel in the Extraordinary Form. In the OF, things always happen sequentially. For instance, the schola may chant the Introit during the procession or as the priest and servers are praying the prayers at the foot of the altar. This can be confusing at first, but over time you will become accustomed to this.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Father is in the center

The priest, after processing in and genuflecting to the Tabernacle with the servers, waits for the MC to take his biretta to the sedilia (which is Latin for chairs) and return. Bowing down, he makes the Sign of the Cross while the MC, other servers and faithful kneel, and says in Latin: 
KNEEL

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,  and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God.

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.

The priest alternates with the MC in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.

Ps. 42, 1-5. 

P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles. 

S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth. 

P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me? 

S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God. 

P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 

S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

The priest repeats the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God. 

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth. 

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says in Latin:

P. Our help  is in the Name of the Lord. 

S. Who made heaven and earth. 

Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor in Latin:

P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

The priest answers: 

P. Amen.

The MC says the Confiteor in Latin. You may wish to pray these words silently to yourself in either Latin or English. It would be appropriate to bow your head slightly as you pray this since it is a penitential prayer.

S. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

Then the priest, with his hands joined, says in Latin:

P. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

S. Amen.

The MC (and you if you wish) make the Sign of the Cross, with the priest saying in Latin:

P. May the  almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.

S. Amen. 

Bowing down, the priest proceeds in Latin:

P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us. 

S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee. 

P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. 

S. And grant us Thy salvation. 

P. O Lord, hear my prayer. 

S. And let my cry come before Thee. 

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

The priest extends then joins his hands and, after audibly saying “Oremus” (“Let us pray”), he ascends to the altar while saying the following prayer silently in Latin.

Let us pray. 

Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

His hands joined, and bowing down over the middle of the altar, the priest says:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

At the conclusion of these prayers and prior to the Introit, the priest, accompanied by the MC and thurifer, will incense the altar for the first time. After the incensation of the altar is complete, the MC will incense the priest.

Introit 

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

Moving to the Epistle-side (the right side) of the altar, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross and reads the Introit in Latin. The Introit is chanted by the schola, but as noted above, they may have already chanted this during the procession, the prayers at the foot of the altar or during the incensation. The Introit is the first of the variable texts, called “the propers,” that change depending on the Mass of the day.

Gal 6:14.
But it behooves us to glory in the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ: in Whom is our salvation, life, and resurrection; by whom we are saved and delivered.
Ps. 66. 2
May God have mercy on us, and bless us: may He cause the light of His countenance to shine upon us; and may He have mercy on us.
But it behooves us to glory in the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ: in Whom is our salvation, life, and resurrection; by whom we are saved and delivered.

Kyrie 

Father is in the center

At a sung Mass, the schola will chant the Kyrie, but this may happen before or as the priest says the words. You may chant the Kyrie with the schola if you wish.
The priest moves to the middle and alternates with the MC saying the only Greek words in the Mass:

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Christe, eléison. 
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

S. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

Gloria 

STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.
Afterwards, standing at the middle of the altar, extending and then joining his hands, and bowing slightly, the priest intones the first words of the Gloria, which the schola will then continue. The priest will quietly say the rest of the Gloria. When he is finished, the MC will often lead the the priest to the sedilia to sit until the schola is finished.
(The Gloria is omitted during Lent, Advent and in Requiem Masses.)
On Holy Thursday the bells are rung throughout the Gloria and then are put away until the Gloria at the Easter Vigil.

Gloria in excelsis Deo Et in terra pax homínibus bonæ voluntátis. Laudámus te. Benedícimus te. Bow head Adorámus te. Glorificámus te. Bow head Grátias ágimus tibi propter magnam glóriam tuam. Dómine Deus, Rex coeléstis, Deus Pater omnípotens. Dómine Fili unigénite, Bow head Jesu Christe. Dómine Deus, Agnus Dei, Fílius Patris. Qui tollis peccáta mundi, miserére nobis. Qui tollis peccáta mundi, Bow head súscipe deprecatiónem nostram. Qui sedes ad déxteram Patris, miserére nobis. Quóniam tu solus Sanctus. Tu solus Dóminus. Tu solus Altíssimus, Bow head Jesu Christe. Cum Sancto Spíritu  in glória Dei Patris. Amen.

Glory be to God on high, and on earth peace to men of good will. We praise Thee. We bless Thee. Bow head We adore Thee. We glorify Thee. Bow head We give Thee thanks for Thy great glory. O Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father almighty. O Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son. O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father. Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Who takest away the sins of the world, Bow head receive our prayer. Who sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For Thou only are holy. Thou only art the Lord. Thou only art most high, O Bow head Jesus Christ. Together with the Holy Ghost  in the glory of God the Father. Amen. 

Then the priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The Lord be with you.

S. And with thy spirit.

 Collect 

STAND

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Collect is the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. It changes with each Mass. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
The priest returns to the Epistle-side of the altar and chants the Collect in Latin:

P. Oremus.

P. Let us pray.

O God, from whom Judas received the punishment of his guilt, and the thief the reward of his confession: grant unto us the full fruit of Thy clemency; that even as in His Passion, our Lord Jesus Christ gave to each a retribution according to his merits, so having taken away our old sins, He may bestow upon us the grace of His Resurrection. Who with Thee liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.

Who livest and reignest with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The Epistle, Gradual and Alleluia

SIT
The Epistle, or lesson, is like the second reading in the Ordinary Form in that it is frequently (though certainly not always) from St. Paul. Along with the Gradual and Alleluia, the Epistle changes depending on the Mass of the day. The Alleluia is omitted at today’s Mass.
After chanting the Collect, the priest will also chant the Epistle.
Epistle

Lesson from the Acts of Apostles
Acts 4:8-12
In those days, Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said, Rulers of the people and elders, if we are on trial today about a good work done to a cripple, as to how this man has been cured, be it known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Whom you crucified, Whom God has raised from the dead, even in this Name does he stand here before you, sound. This is ‘The stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.’ Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
R. Thanks be to God.

After the Epistle is finished, Father will place his left hand on the altar and the MC responds “Deo gratias.”
Father will now quietly say and the schola will chant the Gradual and Alleluia (or the Tract which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons). If the chants will be lengthy, the MC may lead Father to the sedilia to sit until they are nearly finished.
Gradual

Phil 2:8-9
Christ became obedient for us unto death, even to the death of the cross. 
V. For which cause God also exalted Him and hath given Him a Name which is above all names.

When the Gradual is nearly finished, the MC will lead Father back to the altar to meet the thurifer if he was sitting. Father will impose incense and then say the prayers below.
The thurifer, the MC with the Missal and the two Acolytes with candles will meet in the middle and begin a procession to the Gospel-side of the altar, where Father will proclaim the Gospel.

Munda Cor Meum

Father is in the center

As the server transfers the Missal to the Gospel-side of the altar, the priest moves to the middle of the altar and bowing down says in Latin:

Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen. 

Gospel 

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Except for Solemn Mass, when he will remain in the middle, the priest moves from the middle to the left side of the altar, and begins in Latin:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Continuation ✠ of the Holy Gospel according to John
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

Joann 13:1-15
Before the festival-day of the Pasch, Jesus knowing that His hour was come, that He should pass out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world. He loved them unto the end. And when supper was done – the devil having now put into the heart of Judas, the son of Simon the Iscariot, to betray Him, – knowing that the Father had given Him all things into His hands and that He came from God and goeth to God: He riseth from supper and layeth aside His garments and, having taken a towel, girded Himself. After that, He putteth water into a basin and began to wash the feet of the disciples and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded. He cometh therefore to Simon Peter. And Peter saith to Him: Lord, dost Thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said to him: What I do, thou knowest not now: but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith to Him: Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him: If I wash thee not, thou shalt have no part with Me. Simon Peter saith to Him: Lord, not only my feet, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him: He that is washed needeth not but to wash his feet, but is clean wholly. And you are clean, but not all. For He knew who he was that would betray Him; therefore He said: You are not all clean. Then after He had washed their feet and taken His garments, being set down again, He said to them: Know you what I have done to you? You call Me Master and Lord. And you say well; for so I am. If then I being your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that as I have done to you, so you do also.

At the conclusion of the Gospel…

S. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

P. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Sermon

SIT
After the Gospel, if there is to be a sermon, the priest will return to the middle of the altar and remove his maniple, which signifies that there is a pause in the celebration of the Mass. The MC, thurifer and acolytes will also move to the middle, genuflect and then take a seat at the sedilia (chairs) in the sanctuary. After the sermon, the priest will return and put the maniple back on his arm and then continue as below. On Holy Thursday, there is an optional rite of the Washing of the Feet. The priest may do this before putting on his maniple and continuing with the Mass.

Washing of the Feet

Ant. A new commandment I give unto you: That you love one another, as I have loved you, saith the Lord.
Blessed are the undefiled in the way: who walk in the law of the Lord.
Ant. A new commandment I give unto you: That you love one another, as I have loved you, saith the Lord.

Ant. After our Lord was risen from supper, He put water into a basin, and began to wash the feet of His disciples: to whom He gave this example. 
Great is the Lord, and exceedingly to be praised in the city of our God, in His holy mountain.
Ant. After our Lord was risen from supper, He put water into a basin, and began to wash the feet of His disciples: to whom He gave this example. 

Ant. Our Lord Jesus, after He had supped with His disciples, washed their feet, and said to them: Know you what I your Lord and Master have done to you? I have given you an example, that ye also may do likewise.
Thou hast blessed, O Lord, Thy land; Thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.
Ant. Our Lord Jesus, after He had supped with His disciples, washed their feet, and said to them: Know you what I your Lord and Master have done to you? I have given you an example, that ye also may do likewise.

Ant. Lord, dost Thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said to them: If I shall not wash thy feet, thou shalt have no part with Me. 
V. He came to Simon Peter, and Peter said to Him: Lord, dost Thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said to them: If I shall not wash thy feet, thou shalt have no part with Me. 
V. What I do, thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
Ant. Lord, dost Thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said to them: If I shall not wash thy feet, thou shalt have no part with Me. 

Ant. If I your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, how much more ought you to wash one another’s feet? 
Hear these things, all ye nations: give ear, ye that inhabit the world.
Ant. If I your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, how much more ought you to wash one another’s feet? 

Ant. By this shall all men know that you are My disciples, if you have love one for another. 
V. Said Jesus to His disciples.
Ant. By this shall all men know that you are My disciples, if you have love one for another. 

Ant. Let these three, faith, hope, and charity, remain in you; but the greatest of these is charity. 
V. And now there remain faith, hope and charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Ant. Let these three, faith, hope, and charity, remain in you; but the greatest of these is charity. 

Where charity and love are, there is God. 
V. The love of Christ has gathered us together. 
V. Let us rejoice in Him and be glad. 
V. Let us fear and love the living God. 
V. And let us love one another with a sincere heart. 
Where charity and love are, there is God. 
V. When, therefore, we are assembled together. 
V. Let us take heed, that we be not divided in mind. 
V. Let malicious quarrels and contentions cease. 
V. And let Christ our God dwell among us. 
Where charity and love are, there is God. 
V. Let us also with the blessed see. 
V. Thy face in glory, O Christ our God. 
V. There to possess immeasurable and happy joy. 
V. For infinite ages of ages. Amen.

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. Amen.
V. Thou hast commanded Thy commandments, O Lord. 
R. To be exactly observed. 
V. Thou hast washed the feet of Thy disciples. 
R. Despise not the work of Thy hands. 
V. O Lord, hear my prayer. 
R. And let my cry come unto Thee. 
V. The Lord be with you. 
R. And with thy spirit. 
Let us pray
Be present, O Lord, we beseech Thee, at the performance of our service: and since Thou didst vouchsafe to wash the feet of Thy disciples, despise not the work of Thy hands, which Thou hast commanded us to retain: that as here the outward stains are washed away by us and from us, so the inward sins of us all may be blotted out by Thee. Which do Thou vouchsafe to grant, who livest and reignest God for ever and ever. 
R. Amen. 

 

Offertory 

The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says in Latin:

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

SIT
Then the priest says and the schola chants the Offertory verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. 

Ps 117: 16, 17
The right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength: the right hand of the Lord hath exalted me. I shall not die, but live, and shall declare the works of the Lord.

This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says in Latin:

Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier’s lance.

O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen. 

 We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen. 

Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God. 

Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.

Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless  this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name. 

Father will now incense the gifts and the altar.

Lavabo

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice, and then says in Latin:

Ps. 25. 6-12

I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

“This majestic prayer of offering to the Most Holy Trinity states in detail the particular purpose for which the holy Sacrifice is offered.”1

Father is in the center

Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

The Orate Fratres

The priest kisses the altar and turns towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, and say audibly “Orate fratres.” He then turns back to the altar and continues silently in Latin:

P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty. 

The MC answers on our behalf in Latin:

S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.  

The priest answers in a low voice:

P. Amen. 

Secret 

This prayer is one of the variable parts of the Mass, called the propers, which changes based on the Mass being celebrated and is prayed silently. It is “the completion of the Offertory and introduces the actual oblation of the Sacrifice in the great prayer of the Canon”1 of the Mass.

We beseech Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God, that He Himself may render our Sacrifice acceptable to Thee, Who, by the tradition of today, taught His disciples to do this in remembrance of Him, Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord,
Who livest and reignest with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The priest begins the Preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with important Feasts.
You may respond with the MC and schola the following:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spíritu tuo.

P. Sursum corda.

S. Habémus ad Dóminum.

P. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.

S. Dignum et justum est.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Lift up your hearts. 

S. We have lifted them up to the Lord. 

P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

S. It is right and just. 

The particular Preface changes for certain Masses, with the Preface of the Holy Trinity used on most Sundays. 

Holy Cross
It is 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 didst establish the salvation of mankind on the tree of the Cross; that whence death came, thence also life might arise again, and that he, who overcame by the tree, by the tree also might be overcome: Through Christ our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with these we entreat Thee that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted while we say with lowly praise:

Sanctus

Immediately at the conclusion of the Preface the priest begins the Sanctus and the bells are rung three times.
The schola will also chant the Sanctus, which you may join if you wish. It is customary to Cross yourself at the Benedictus.
KNEEL

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

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest!  Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! 

Canon 

The Canon of the Mass is made up of the fixed forms of the prayers from the Sanctus to the Pater Noster. It is said silently by the priest.

Prayers for the Church

We therefore, humbly pray and beseech Thee, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ; Thy Son, our Lord, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to accept and bless. these  gifts, these  presents, these  holy unspotted Sacrifices, which in the first place we offer Thee for Thy holy Catholic Church to which vouchsafe to grant peace, as also to preserve, unite, and govern it throughout the world, together with Thy servant N. our Pope, and N. our Bishop, and all orthodox believers and professors of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith. 

Commemoration of the Living

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants and handmaidens, N. et N. and of all here present, whose faith and devotion are known unto Thee, for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves, their families and friends, for the redemption of their souls, for the health and salvation they hope for; and who now pay their vows to Thee, the everlasting, living and true God. 

Communicating and celebrating the most sacred day in which our Lord Jesus Christ was betrayed for us: and also honoring in the first place the memory of the glorious and ever Virgin Mary, mother of our God and Lord Jesus Christ: 
as also of the blessed Joseph, her Spouse,
and of the blessed Apostles and Martyrs Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Xystus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and of all Thy Saints, through whose merits and prayers, grant that we may in all things be defended by the help of Thy protection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Prayers at the Consecration

Spreading his hands over the oblation, the bells are rung one time to signal that the Consecration is approaching and the priest says in Latin:

We therefore beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this offering of our service, and that of Thy whole family, which we make to Thee in memory of the day on which our Lord Jesus Christ gave to His disciples the Mysteries of His Body and Blood to be celebrated; and to dispose our day in Thy peace preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of Thine Elect. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all respects, to bless,  approve,  ratify,  make worthy and acceptable; that it may be made for us the Body  and Blood  of Thy most beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Consecration of the Host

Who, the day before He suffered for our salvation and that of all men, that is, on this day, took bread into His most sacred and venerable hands and with His eyes lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed  it, broke it and gave it to His disciples saying: Take and eat ye all of this, 

The words of the Consecration of the Host:

FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

After pronouncing the words of the Consecration, the priest, kneeling, adores the Sacred Host; rising, he elevates It, then placing It on the corporal, again adores It. After this he never disjoins his fingers and thumbs, except when he is to take the Host, until after the washing of his fingers during the ablutions.
You may wish to look up at the Sacred Host, with faith, piety, and love, saying to yourself: MY LORD and MY GOD!

Consecration of the Wine

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands He blessed  , and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this,  

The words of Consecration of the Chalice:

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT, THE MYSTERY OF FAITH; WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

The priest kneels and adores the Precious Blood; rising, he elevates the Chalice, and setting it down he covers it and adores it again. 
You may wish to look up at the Chalice and say to yourself something such as: BE MINDFUL O LORD, OF THY CREATURE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED BY THY PRECIOUS BLOOD!
After the elevation of the Chalice, the priest says in a low voice in Latin:

As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in remembrance of Me.

Prayers After Consecration

The priest continues silently in Latin:

Wherefore, O Lord, we Thy servants, as also Thy holy people, calling to mind the blessed Passion of the same Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, and also His Resurrection from the dead and His glorious Ascension into heaven: do offer unto Thy most excellent Majesty of Thine own gifts, bestowed upon us, a pure  Victim, a holy  Victim, an unspotted  Victim, the holy  Bread of eternal life, and the Chalice ☩ of everlasting salvation. 

Upon which vouchsafe to look with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou wert graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our patriarch Abraham, and that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim.

We most humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine majesty, that as many as shall partake of the most holy Body  and Blood  of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Commemoration of the Dead

Remember also, O Lord, Thy servants and handmaids N. and N., who are gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace; Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The priest says the first words, “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in a somewhat elevated tone of voice, to symbolize an act of public self-humiliation; at the same time he strikes his breast in a token of contrition.

To us also, Thy sinful servants, confiding in the multitude of Thy mercies, vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with Thy holy Apostles and Martyrs, with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia, and with all Thy Saints, into whose company we beseech Thee to admit us, not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses. Through Christ our Lord. 

By Whom, O Lord, Thou dost ever create, sanctify,  quicken,  bless,  and give unto us all these good things. 

He uncovers the Chalice, and genuflects: then taking the Host in his right hand, and holding the Chalice in his left, he signs with the Sign of the Cross five times across the Chalice, saying:

By Him,  and with Him,  and in Him  is to Thee, God the Father  almighty, in the unity of the Holy  Ghost, all honor and glory. 

Replacing the Host, and covering the Chalice, he kneels down, and rising again, he says in Latin:

P. Per omnia secula saecolorum.

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

Pater Noster 

In the Extraordinary Form, the priest alone says the Our Father.
You may, however, join the schola and MC in chanting the “Sed libera nos a malo” response.
STAND

Oremus: etc.

Let us pray. Instructed by Thy saving precepts, and following Thy divine institution, we are bold to say: 

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: 

S. Sed libera nos a malo. 

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. 

S. But deliver us from evil.

P. Amen.   

The priest continues silently in Latin: 

Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may be always free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. 

Who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth God,

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

KNEEL

P. Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The peace  of the Lord be  always with  you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

He puts a Particle of the Sacred Host into the Chalice, saying in Latin:

May this mixture and consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ be to us who receive it effectual unto eternal life. Amen. 

Agnus Dei

He covers the Chalice, genuflects and rises; then bowing down and striking his breast thrice, he says the Angus Dei.
You may join the schola in chanting the Agnus Dei if you wish.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast grant us peace. 

Prayers for Holy Communion

With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers in Latin:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen. 

Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

Communion of the Priest

The priest genuflects, rises and says in Latin:

I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord. 

Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says in Latin “Domine, non sum dignus…” three times devoutly and humbly while the bells are rung:

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time. Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:

What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 

After the priest consumes the Host, the servers move to the credence table to put away the bells and retrieve the patens they will use during the distribution of Communion.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:

The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Holy Communion

In many places there is often no longer an additional Confiteor immediately before Communion, however it is still a pious custom of many of the faithful to pray it quietly on their own even if the altar boys or sacred ministers do not recite it.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon me, forgive me my sins, and bring me unto life everlasting. Amen. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant me pardon, absolution, and remission of my sins. Amen. 

Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:

Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccáta mundi. 

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world. 

And then he says three times in Latin the following. 
In some places it is a custom for the congregation, even at a Low Mass, to quietly pray these words in Latin outloud:

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.  

If you will be receiving Communion, now is typically an appropriate time to get up and go to the altar rail.
Note: In the Extraordinary Form, Communion is received on the tongue while kneeling (if there are no physical impediments) at the altar rail.

You do not say “Amen”, the priest says it at the end of the prayer. 
The priest, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host, says the following prayer as he administers Holy Communion to you: 

P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.

Ablutions

Father is in the center

After Communion, the priest returns to the altar and says silently:

Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy. 

Then he holds out the Chalice to the server who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:

May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution at the right side of the altar. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass.

Communion and Post Communion Verses

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Communion and Post Communion verses are the final two propers, or variable parts, of the Mass. The priest goes to the Missal on the epistle side and says the Communion verse. (The schola will have already chanted this prayer.)

John 13:12,13,15
The Lord Jesus, after He had supped with His disciples, washed their feet, and said to them: Know you what I, your Lord and Master, have done to you? I have given you an example, that you may do likewise.

Father returns to the middle, kisses the altar and the returns to the epistle side where he chants the Post Communion.
STAND

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Oremus

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

Strengthened with life-giving Food, we beseech Thee, O Lord, our God, that the rite we perform in this mortal life may win us life immortal with Thee.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Conclusion 

Father is in the center

The priest turns to the people and chants: 

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Ite Missa est.

S. Deo Gratias.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Go, the Mass is ended.

S. Thanks be to God.

KNEEL
The priest turns back to the altar and says silently in Latin:

May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He kisses the altar, turns to the people and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:

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

S. Amen. 

Last Gospel

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

There is no Last Gospel on Holy Thursday. A procession of the Sacred Hosts in the Ciborium takes place to the Alta of Repose. During the Procession, the hymn Pange lingua is sung up until the last verse, the Tantum ergo. Upon reaching the Altar of Repose, the Tantum ergo is then sung.
KNEEL

Pange Lingua
Pange língua, gloriósi
Córporis mystérium,
Sanguinísque pretiósi,
Quem in mundi prétium
Fructus ventris generósi
Rex effúdit géntium.
Nobis datus, nobis natus
Ex intácta Vírgine,
Et in mundo conversátus,
Sparso verbi sémine.
Sui moras incolátus.
Miro clausit órdine. 
In suprémæ nocte cœnæ
Recúmbens cum frátribus,
Observáta lege plene
Cibis in legálibus,
Cibum turbæ duodénæ
Se dat suis mánibus. 
Verbum caro, panem verum
Verbo carnem éfficit;
Fitque sanguis Christi merum:
Et si sensus déficit,
Ad firmándum cor sincérum
Sola fides súfficit.
Tantum ergo Sacraméntum
Venerémur cérnui:
Et antíquum documéntum
Novo cedat ritui:
Præstet fides supplémentum
Sénsuum deféctui.
Genitóri, Genitóque
Laus et iubilátio:
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedíctio
Procedénti ab utróque
Compar sit laudátio.
Amen.

Recessional in Silence

After Mass, and after the conclusion of the recessional hymn, it is customary for the faithful to kneel for a moment in thanksgiving for the Holy Mass just offered. You may wish to add prayers of thanksgiving for the priest who celebrated the Mass; your parish and bishop; holy priests, religious and faithful persecuted for their fidelity; and for the great gift of Summorum Pontificum, which Pope Benedict XVI gave us in 2007.

Passion Sunday High Mass

Welcome to Phone Missal! The beta version of the site was rushed out in order to provide the faithful, especially those still learning the Extraordinary Form Mass, with a resource to use since so many parishes are unable to have pew missals or other handouts due to the virus.

Explanations as to what the priest and servers are doing and where they are standing are provided to help you follow along. The instructions in red text are generally based on local customs at our local parish in our diocese. But they are just suggestions as there are no hard and fast rules for the congregation. The church where you attend Mass may have slightly different customs. You should follow those.

Note: The altar boys and schola generally make the responses on your behalf in the Extraordinary Form High Mass, but the congregation may join in singing some of the prayers with the schola. Those are noted below. But as at a Low Mass, you are always free to simply pray quietly to yourself. (With the caveat about local customs noted above.)

Please provide us with your feedback to help us make this a more useful resource for you. Thank you and may God bless you!

A High Mass (also known as a sung Mass or a Missa cantata) is typically celebrated with a priest, a master of ceremonies (MC), a thurifer, two acolytes, a crucifer, and up to six torchbearers. There will be six candles lit on the altar. The Missal will be open on the stand on the right-side (known as the Epistle side) of the altar.
High Mass notes: One difference from the Ordinary Form that you will notice is that prayers and actions often happen in parallel in the Extraordinary Form. In the OF, things always happen sequentially. For instance, the schola may chant the Introit during the procession or as the priest and servers are praying the prayers at the foot of the altar. This can be confusing at first, but over time you will become accustomed to this.

Asperges

On Sundays only, the Asperges may take place immediately after the procession and before the prayers at the foot of the altar.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Father is in the center

The priest, after processing in and genuflecting to the Tabernacle with the servers, waits for the MC to take his biretta to the sedilia (which is Latin for chairs) and return. Bowing down, he makes the Sign of the Cross while the MC, other servers and faithful kneel, and says in Latin: 
KNEEL

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,  and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God.

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.

The priest alternates with the MC in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.

Ps. 42, 1-5. 

P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles. 

S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth. 

P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me? 

S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God. 

P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 

S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

The priest repeats the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God. 

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth. 

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says in Latin:

P. Our help  is in the Name of the Lord. 

S. Who made heaven and earth. 

Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor in Latin:

P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

The priest answers: 

P. Amen.

The MC says the Confiteor in Latin. You may wish to pray these words silently to yourself in either Latin or English. It would be appropriate to bow your head slightly as you pray this since it is a penitential prayer.

S. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

Then the priest, with his hands joined, says in Latin:

P. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

S. Amen.

The MC (and you if you wish) make the Sign of the Cross, with the priest saying in Latin:

P. May the  almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.

S. Amen. 

Bowing down, the priest proceeds in Latin:

P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us. 

S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee. 

P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. 

S. And grant us Thy salvation. 

P. O Lord, hear my prayer. 

S. And let my cry come before Thee. 

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

The priest extends then joins his hands and, after audibly saying “Oremus” (“Let us pray”), he ascends to the altar while saying the following prayer silently in Latin.

Let us pray. 

Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

His hands joined, and bowing down over the middle of the altar, the priest says:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

At the conclusion of these prayers and prior to the Introit, the priest, accompanied by the MC and thurifer, will incense the altar for the first time. After the incensation of the altar is complete, the MC will incense the priest.

Introit 

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

Moving to the Epistle-side (the right side) of the altar, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross and reads the Introit in Latin. The Introit is chanted by the schola, but as noted above, they may have already chanted this during the procession, the prayers at the foot of the altar or during the incensation. The Introit is the first of the variable texts, called “the propers,” that change depending on the Mass of the day.

Ps 42:1-2
Do me justice, O God, and fight my fight against a faithless people; from the deceitful and impious man rescue me. For You are my God and my strength.
Ps 42:3
Send forth Your light and Your fidelity; they shall lead me on and bring me to Your holy mountain, to Your dwelling-place.
Do me justice, O God, and fight my fight against a faithless people; from the deceitful and impious man rescue me. For You are my God and my strength.

Kyrie 

Father is in the center

At a sung Mass, the schola will chant the Kyrie, but this may happen before or as the priest says the words. You may chant the Kyrie with the schola if you wish.
The priest moves to the middle and alternates with the MC saying the only Greek words in the Mass:

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Christe, eléison. 
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

S. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

Gloria 

The Gloria is omitted in Lent.
Then the priest turns to the people and sings:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The Lord be with you.

S. And with thy spirit.

 Collect 

STAND

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Collect is the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. It changes with each Mass. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
The priest returns to the Epistle-side of the altar and chants the Collect in Latin:

P. Oremus.

P. Let us pray.

Look graciously upon Your household, almighty God, we beseech You, that by Your grace we may be governed in body, and by Your protection safeguarded in mind.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The Epistle, Gradual and Tract

SIT
The Epistle, or lesson, is like the second reading in the Ordinary Form in that it is frequently (though certainly not always) from St. Paul. Along with the Gradual and Tract (which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons), the Epistle changes depending on the Mass of the day.
After chanting the Collect, the priest will also chant the Epistle.
Epistle

Reading from the letter of St. Paul to the Hebrews
Heb 9:11-15.
Brethren: When Christ appeared as high priest of the good things to come, He entered once for all through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made by hands – that is, not of this creation, – nor again by virtue of blood of goats and calves, but by virtue of His own blood, into the Holies, having obtained eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls and the sprinkled ashes of a heifer sanctify the unclean unto the cleansing of the flesh, how much more will the Blood of Christ, Who through the Holy Spirit offered Himself unblemished unto God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And this is why He is mediator of a new covenant, that whereas a death has taken place for redemption from the transgressions committed under the former covenant, they who have been called may receive eternal inheritance according to the promise, in Christ Jesus our Lord.

S. Thanks be to God.

After the Epistle is finished, Father will place his left hand on the altar and the MC responds “Deo gratias.”
Father will now quietly say and the schola will chant the Gradual and Alleluia (or the Tract which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons). If the chants will be lengthy, the MC may lead Father to the sedilia to sit until they are nearly finished.
Gradual and Tract

Ps 142:9-10.
Rescue me from my enemies, O Lord; teach me to do Your will.
Ps 17:48-49
O Lord, my deliverer from the angry nations, truly above my adversaries You exalt me and from the violent man You have rescued me.

Tractus
Ps 128:1-4
Much have they oppressed me from my youth.
V. Let Israel say: Much have they oppressed me from my youth.
V. Yet they have not prevailed against me; upon my back the plowers plowed.
V. Long did they make their furrows. But the just Lord has severed the cords of the wicked.

When the Tract is nearly finished, the MC will lead Father back to the altar to meet the thurifer if he was sitting. Father will impose incense and then say the prayers below.
The thurifer, the MC with the Missal and the two Acolytes with candles will meet in the middle and begin a procession to the Gospel-side of the altar, where Father will proclaim the Gospel.

Munda Cor Meum

Father is in the center

As the server transfers the Missal to the Gospel-side of the altar, the priest moves to the middle of the altar and bowing down says in Latin:

Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen. 

Gospel 

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Except for Solemn Mass, when he will remain in the middle, the priest moves from the middle to the left side of the altar, and begins in Latin:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to John
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
John 8:46-59.
At that time, Jesus said to the crowds of the Jews: Which of you can convict Me of sin? If I speak the truth, why do you not believe Me? He who is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear is that you are not of God. The Jews therefore in answer said to Him, Are we not right in saying that You are a Samaritan, and have a devil? Jesus answered, I have not a devil, but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me. Yet, I do not seek My own glory; there is One Who seeks and Who judges. Amen, amen, I say to you, if anyone keep My word, he will never see death. The Jews therefore said, Now we know that You have a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets, and You say, ‘If anyone keep My word he will never taste death.’ Are You greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Whom do You make Yourself? Jesus answered, If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing. It is My Father Who glorifies Me, of Whom you say that He is your God. And you do not know Him, but I know Him. And if I say that I do not know Him, I shall be like you, a liar. But I know Him, and I keep His word. Abraham your father rejoiced that he was to see My day. He saw it and was glad. The Jews therefore said to Him, You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham? Jesus said to them, Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham came to be, I am. They therefore took up stones to cast at Him; but Jesus hid Himself, and went out from the temple.

At the conclusion of the Gospel…

S. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

P. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Sermon

SIT
After the Gospel, if there is to be a sermon, the priest will return to the middle of the altar and remove his maniple, which signifies that there is a pause in the celebration of the Mass. The MC, thurifer and acolytes will also move to the middle, genuflect and then take a seat at the sedilia (chairs) in the sanctuary. After the sermon, the priest will return and put the maniple back on his arm and then continue as below.

Creed 

Father is in the center

On Sundays and certain Feasts the priest recites the Creed, a summary of the Catholic Doctrine. This profession of faith was drawn up in the General Councils of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381 to condemn heretics who denied that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost  are God.
As with the Gloria, Father will intone the first words of the Credo and then the schola will continue with the chant while the priest says the rest quietly. Often the MC will lead Father to the sedilia to sit when the schola finishes.
You may chant the Credo with the schola if you wish.
STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et in visibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Bow head Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de coelis. 

Here kneel down. Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Rise. 

Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. 

Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio Bow head simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri saeculi. Amen.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things, visible and invisible. And in one Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. And born of the Father, before all ages. God of God: Light of Light: true God of true God. Begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven. 

Here kneel down. And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. Rise.

He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, of whose kingdom there shall be no end. 

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son. Who together, with the Father and the Son, is Bow head adored and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets. And in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead. And the life  of the world to come. Amen. 

Offertory 

The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says in Latin:

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

SIT
Then the priest says and the schola chants the Offertory verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. 

Ps 118:17, 107
I praise You, O Lord, with all my heart; be good to Your servant, that I may live and keep Your words. O Lord, give me life according to Your word.

This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says in Latin:

Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier’s lance.

O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen. 

 We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen. 

Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God. 

Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.

Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless  this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name. 

Father will now incense the gifts and the altar.

Lavabo

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice, and then says in Latin:

Ps. 25. 6-12

I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

“This majestic prayer of offering to the Most Holy Trinity states in detail the particular purpose for which the holy Sacrifice is offered.”1

Father is in the center

Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

The Orate Fratres

The priest kisses the altar and turns towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, and say audibly “Orate fratres.” He then turns back to the altar and continues silently in Latin:

P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty. 

The MC answers on our behalf in Latin:

S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.  

The priest answers in a low voice:

P. Amen. 

Secret 

This prayer is one of the variable parts of the Mass, called the propers, which changes based on the Mass being celebrated and is prayed silently. It is “the completion of the Offertory and introduces the actual oblation of the Sacrifice in the great prayer of the Canon”1 of the Mass.

May these offerings, we beseech You, O Lord, loose the bonds of our wickedness, and obtain for us the gifts of Your mercy.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Preface 

STAND
The priest begins the Preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with important Feasts.
You may respond with the MC and schola the following:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spíritu tuo.

P. Sursum corda.

S. Habémus ad Dóminum.

P. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.

S. Dignum et justum est.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Lift up your hearts. 

S. We have lifted them up to the Lord. 

P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

S. It is right and just. 

The particular Preface changes for certain Masses, with the Preface of the Holy Trinity used on most Sundays.  Passiontide uses the preface of the Holy Cross.

Holy Cross
It is 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 didst establish the salvation of mankind on the tree of the Cross; that whence death came, thence also life might arise again, and that he, who overcame by the tree, by the tree also might be overcome: Through Christ our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with these we entreat Thee that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted while we say with lowly praise:

Sanctus

Immediately at the conclusion of the Preface the priest begins the Sanctus and the bells are rung three times.
The schola will also chant the Sanctus, which you may join if you wish. It is customary to Cross yourself at the Benedictus.
KNEEL

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

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest!  Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! 

Canon 

The Canon of the Mass is made up of the fixed forms of the prayers from the Sanctus to the Pater Noster. It is said silently by the priest.

Prayers for the Church

We therefore, humbly pray and beseech Thee, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ; Thy Son, our Lord, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to accept and bless. these  gifts, these  presents, these  holy unspotted Sacrifices, which in the first place we offer Thee for Thy holy Catholic Church to which vouchsafe to grant peace, as also to preserve, unite, and govern it throughout the world, together with Thy servant N. our Pope, and N. our Bishop, and all orthodox believers and professors of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith. 

Commemoration of the Living

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants and handmaidens, N. et N. and of all here present, whose faith and devotion are known unto Thee, for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves, their families and friends, for the redemption of their souls, for the health and salvation they hope for; and who now pay their vows to Thee, the everlasting, living and true God. 

We pray in union with and honor the memory, especially of the glorious ever Virgin Mary, mother of our God and Lord Jesus Christ: as also of the blessed Joseph, her Spouse, and of the blessed Apostles and Martyrs Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and of all Thy Saints, through whose merits and prayers, grant that we may in all things be defended by the help of Thy protection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Prayers at the Consecration

Spreading his hands over the oblation, the bells are rung one time to signal that the Consecration is approaching and the priest says in Latin:

We therefore beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this oblation of our service, as also of Thy whole family; and to dispose our days in Thy peace, preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of Thine Elect. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all respects, to bless,  approve,  ratify,  make worthy and acceptable; that it may be made for us the Body  and Blood  of Thy most beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Consecration of the Host

Who, the day before He suffered, took bread into His holy and venerable hands, and with His eyes lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed  it, broke it and gave it to His disciples saying: Take and eat ye all of this, 

The words of the Consecration of the Host:

FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

After pronouncing the words of the Consecration, the priest, kneeling, adores the Sacred Host; rising, he elevates It, then placing It on the corporal, again adores It. After this he never disjoins his fingers and thumbs, except when he is to take the Host, until after the washing of his fingers during the ablutions.
You may wish to look up at the Sacred Host, with faith, piety, and love, saying to yourself: MY LORD and MY GOD!

Consecration of the Wine

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands He blessed  , and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this,  

The words of Consecration of the Chalice:

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT, THE MYSTERY OF FAITH; WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

The priest kneels and adores the Precious Blood; rising, he elevates the Chalice, and setting it down he covers it and adores it again. 
You may wish to look up at the Chalice and say to yourself something such as: BE MINDFUL O LORD, OF THY CREATURE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED BY THY PRECIOUS BLOOD!
After the elevation of the Chalice, the priest says in a low voice in Latin:

As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in remembrance of Me.

Prayers After Consecration

The priest continues silently in Latin:

Wherefore, O Lord, we Thy servants, as also Thy holy people, calling to mind the blessed Passion of the same Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, and also His Resurrection from the dead and His glorious Ascension into heaven: do offer unto Thy most excellent Majesty of Thine own gifts, bestowed upon us, a pure  Victim, a holy  Victim, an unspotted  Victim, the holy  Bread of eternal life, and the Chalice ☩ of everlasting salvation. 

Upon which vouchsafe to look with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou wert graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our patriarch Abraham, and that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim.

We most humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine majesty, that as many as shall partake of the most holy Body  and Blood  of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Commemoration of the Dead

Remember also, O Lord, Thy servants and handmaids N. and N., who are gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace; Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The priest says the first words, “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in a somewhat elevated tone of voice, to symbolize an act of public self-humiliation; at the same time he strikes his breast in a token of contrition.

To us also, Thy sinful servants, confiding in the multitude of Thy mercies, vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with Thy holy Apostles and Martyrs, with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia, and with all Thy Saints, into whose company we beseech Thee to admit us, not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses. Through Christ our Lord. 

By Whom, O Lord, Thou dost ever create, sanctify,  quicken,  bless,  and give unto us all these good things. 

He uncovers the Chalice, and genuflects: then taking the Host in his right hand, and holding the Chalice in his left, he signs with the Sign of the Cross five times across the Chalice, saying:

By Him,  and with Him,  and in Him  is to Thee, God the Father  almighty, in the unity of the Holy  Ghost, all honor and glory. 

Replacing the Host, and covering the Chalice, he kneels down, and rising again, he says in Latin:

P. Per omnia secula saecolorum.

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

Pater Noster 

In the Extraordinary Form, the priest alone says the Our Father.
You may, however, join the schola and MC in chanting the “Sed libera nos a malo” response.
STAND

Oremus: etc.

Let us pray. Instructed by Thy saving precepts, and following Thy divine institution, we are bold to say: 

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: 

S. Sed libera nos a malo. 

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. 

S. But deliver us from evil.

P. Amen.   

The priest continues silently in Latin: 

Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may be always free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. 

Who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth God,

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

KNEEL

P. Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The peace  of the Lord be  always with  you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

He puts a Particle of the Sacred Host into the Chalice, saying in Latin:

May this mixture and consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ be to us who receive it effectual unto eternal life. Amen. 

Agnus Dei

He covers the Chalice, genuflects and rises; then bowing down and striking his breast thrice, he says the Angus Dei.
You may join the schola in chanting the Agnus Dei if you wish.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast grant us peace. 

Prayers for Holy Communion

With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers in Latin:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen. 

Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

Communion of the Priest

The priest genuflects, rises and says in Latin:

I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord. 

Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says in Latin “Domine, non sum dignus…” three times devoutly and humbly while the bells are rung:

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time. Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:

What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 

After the priest consumes the Host, the servers move to the credence table to put away the bells and retrieve the patens they will use during the distribution of Communion.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:

The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Holy Communion

In many places there is often no longer an additional Confiteor immediately before Communion, however it is still a pious custom of many of the faithful to pray it quietly on their own even if the altar boys or sacred ministers do not recite it.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon me, forgive me my sins, and bring me unto life everlasting. Amen. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant me pardon, absolution, and remission of my sins. Amen. 

Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:

Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccáta mundi. 

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world. 

And then he says three times in Latin the following. 
In some places it is a custom for the congregation, even at a Low Mass, to quietly pray these words in Latin outloud:

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.  

If you will be receiving Communion, now is typically an appropriate time to get up and go to the altar rail.
Note: In the Extraordinary Form, Communion is received on the tongue while kneeling (if there are no physical impediments) at the altar rail.

You do not say “Amen”, the priest says it at the end of the prayer. 
The priest, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host, says the following prayer as he administers Holy Communion to you: 

P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.

Ablutions

Father is in the center

After Communion, the priest returns to the altar and says silently:

Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy. 

Then he holds out the Chalice to the server who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:

May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution at the right side of the altar. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass.

Communion and Post Communion Verses

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Communion and Post Communion verses are the final two propers, or variable parts, of the Mass. The priest goes to the Missal on the epistle side and says the Communion verse. (The schola will have already chanted this prayer.)

1 Cor. 11:24-25
This is My Body, which shall be given up for you: this is the cup of the new covenant in My Blood, says the Lord; Do this as often as you receive it, in remembrance of Me.

Father returns to the middle, kisses the altar and the returns to the epistle side where he chants the Post Communion.
STAND

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Oremus

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

Stand by us, O Lord our God, and protect by Your everlasting help those to whom You have given new strength through Your sacrament.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Conclusion 

Father is in the center

The priest turns to the people and chants: 

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Ite Missa est.

S. Deo Gratias.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Go, the Mass is ended.

S. Thanks be to God.

KNEEL
The priest turns back to the altar and says silently in Latin:

May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He kisses the altar, turns to the people and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:

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

S. Amen. 

Last Gospel

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Then turning to the gospel-side of the altar, the priest says:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

This Gospel is recited at the end of most Masses. In it “St. John declares that Christ, the Word made Flesh, is the source of life on earth, the light in the darkness, and the love that will last forever.”1 The priest traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:

The beginning  of the holy Gospel according to John. 

S. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

John. 1, 1-14. 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he was to testify concerning the Light. 

That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

Here all kneel. And the Word was made flesh, Rise  

and dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

R. Thanks be to God.

After the Last Gospel there are no Leonine prayers as at a Low Mass.

Recessional

STAND
After Mass, and after the conclusion of the recessional hymn, it is customary for the faithful to kneel for a moment in thanksgiving for the Holy Mass just offered. You may wish to add prayers of thanksgiving for the priest who celebrated the Mass; your parish and bishop; holy priests, religious and faithful persecuted for their fidelity; and for the great gift of Summorum Pontificum, which Pope Benedict XVI gave us in 2007.

1 “Latin-English Booklet Missal,” Coalition in Support of Ecclesia Dei, Fourth Edition, 2008.

Fourth (Laetare) Sunday of Lent High Mass

Welcome to Phone Missal! The beta version of the site was rushed out in order to provide the faithful, especially those still learning the Extraordinary Form Mass, with a resource to use since so many parishes are unable to have pew missals or other handouts due to the virus.

Explanations as to what the priest and servers are doing and where they are standing are provided to help you follow along. The instructions in red text are generally based on local customs at our local parish in our diocese. But they are just suggestions as there are no hard and fast rules for the congregation. The church where you attend Mass may have slightly different customs. You should follow those.

Note: The altar boys and schola generally make the responses on your behalf in the Extraordinary Form High Mass, but the congregation may join in singing some of the prayers with the schola. Those are noted below. But as at a Low Mass, you are always free to simply pray quietly to yourself. (With the caveat about local customs noted above.)

Please provide us with your feedback to help us make this a more useful resource for you. Thank you and may God bless you!

A High Mass (also known as a sung Mass or a Missa cantata) is typically celebrated with a priest, a master of ceremonies (MC), a thurifer, two acolytes, a crucifer, and up to six torchbearers. There will be six candles lit on the altar. The Missal will be open on the stand on the right-side (known as the Epistle side) of the altar.
High Mass notes: One difference from the Ordinary Form that you will notice is that prayers and actions often happen in parallel in the Extraordinary Form. In the OF, things always happen sequentially. For instance, the schola may chant the Introit during the procession or as the priest and servers are praying the prayers at the foot of the altar. This can be confusing at first, but over time you will become accustomed to this.

Asperges

On Sundays only, the Asperges may take place immediately after the procession and before the prayers at the foot of the altar.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Father is in the center

The priest, after processing in and genuflecting to the Tabernacle with the servers, waits for the MC to take his biretta to the sedilia (which is Latin for chairs) and return. Bowing down, he makes the Sign of the Cross while the MC, other servers and faithful kneel, and says in Latin: 
KNEEL

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,  and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God.

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.

The priest alternates with the MC in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.

Ps. 42, 1-5. 

P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles. 

S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth. 

P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me? 

S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God. 

P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 

S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

The priest repeats the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God. 

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth. 

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says in Latin:

P. Our help  is in the Name of the Lord. 

S. Who made heaven and earth. 

Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor in Latin:

P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

The priest answers: 

P. Amen.

The MC says the Confiteor in Latin. You may wish to pray these words silently to yourself in either Latin or English. It would be appropriate to bow your head slightly as you pray this since it is a penitential prayer.

S. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

Then the priest, with his hands joined, says in Latin:

P. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

S. Amen.

The MC (and you if you wish) make the Sign of the Cross, with the priest saying in Latin:

P. May the  almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.

S. Amen. 

Bowing down, the priest proceeds in Latin:

P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us. 

S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee. 

P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. 

S. And grant us Thy salvation. 

P. O Lord, hear my prayer. 

S. And let my cry come before Thee. 

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

The priest extends then joins his hands and, after audibly saying “Oremus” (“Let us pray”), he ascends to the altar while saying the following prayer silently in Latin.

Let us pray. 

Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

His hands joined, and bowing down over the middle of the altar, the priest says:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

At the conclusion of these prayers and prior to the Introit, the priest, accompanied by the MC and thurifer, will incense the altar for the first time. After the incensation of the altar is complete, the MC will incense the priest.

Introit 

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

Moving to the Epistle-side (the right side) of the altar, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross and reads the Introit in Latin. The Introit is chanted by the schola, but as noted above, they may have already chanted this during the procession, the prayers at the foot of the altar or during the incensation. The Introit is the first of the variable texts, called “the propers,” that change depending on the Mass of the day.

Isa 66:10-11
Rejoice, O Jerusalem, and come together, all you who love her: rejoice with joy, you who have been in sorrow: that you may exult, and be filled from the breasts of your consolation.
Ps 121:1
I rejoiced because they said to me, We will go up to the house of the Lord.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Rejoice, O Jerusalem, and come together, all you who love her: rejoice with joy, you who have been in sorrow: that you may exult, and be filled from the breasts of your consolation.

Kyrie 

Father is in the center

At a sung Mass, the schola will chant the Kyrie, but this may happen before or as the priest says the words. You may chant the Kyrie with the schola if you wish.
The priest moves to the middle and alternates with the MC saying the only Greek words in the Mass:

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Christe, eléison. 
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

S. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

Gloria 

The Gloria is omitted in Lent.
Then the priest turns to the people and sings:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The Lord be with you.

S. And with thy spirit.

 Collect 

STAND

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Collect is the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. It changes with each Mass. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
The priest returns to the Epistle-side of the altar and chants the Collect in Latin:

P. Oremus.

P. Let us pray.

Grant, we beseech You, almighty God, that we who justly suffer for our sins may find relief in the help of Your grace.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The Epistle, Gradual and Tract

SIT
The Epistle, or lesson, is like the second reading in the Ordinary Form in that it is frequently (though certainly not always) from St. Paul. Along with the Gradual and Tract (which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons), the Epistle changes depending on the Mass of the day.
After chanting the Collect, the priest will also chant the Epistle.
Epistle

Lesson from the Epistle of St. Paul to the Galatians
Gal 4:22-31
Brethren: It is written that Abraham had two sons, the one by a slave-girl and the other by a free woman. And the son of the slave-girl was born according to the flesh, but the son of the free woman in virtue of the promise. This said by way of allegory. For these are the two covenants: one indeed from Mount Sinai bringing forth children unto bondage, which is Agar. For Sinai is a mountain in Arabia, which corresponds to the present Jerusalem, and is in slavery with her children. But that Jerusalem which is above is free, which is our mother. For it is written, Rejoice, O barren one, that do not bear; break forth and cry, you that do not travail; for many are the children of the desolate, more than of her that has a husband. Now we, brethren, are the children of the promise, as Isaac was. But as then he who was born according to the flesh, persecuted him who was born according to the spirit, so also it is now. But what does the Scripture say? Cast out the slave-girl and her son, for the son of the slave-girl shall not be heir with the son of the free woman.Therefore, brethren, we are not children of a slave-girl, but of the free woman – in virtue of the freedom wherewith Christ has made us free.

S. Thanks be to God.

After the Epistle is finished, Father will place his left hand on the altar and the MC responds “Deo gratias.”
Father will now quietly say and the schola will chant the Gradual and Alleluia (or the Tract which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons). If the chants will be lengthy, the MC may lead Father to the sedilia to sit until they are nearly finished.
Gradual and Tract

Ps 121: 1, 7
I rejoiced because they said to me, We will go up to the house of the Lord.
V. May peace be within your walls, prosperity in your buildings.

Tract
Ps 124:1-2
They who trust in the Lord are like Mount Sion, which is immovable; which forever stands.
V. Mountains are round about Jerusalem; so the Lord is round about His people, both now and forever.

When the Tract is nearly finished, the MC will lead Father back to the altar to meet the thurifer if he was sitting. Father will impose incense and then say the prayers below.
The thurifer, the MC with the Missal and the two Acolytes with candles will meet in the middle and begin a procession to the Gospel-side of the altar, where Father will proclaim the Gospel.

Munda Cor Meum

Father is in the center

As the server transfers the Missal to the Gospel-side of the altar, the priest moves to the middle of the altar and bowing down says in Latin:

Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen. 

Gospel 

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Except for Solemn Mass, when he will remain in the middle, the priest moves from the middle to the left side of the altar, and begins in Latin:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to John
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
John 6:1-15
At that time, Jesus went away to the other side of the sea of Galilee, which is that of Tiberias. And there followed Him a great crowd, because they witnessed the signs He worked on those who were sick. Jesus therefore went up the mountain, and sat there with His disciples. Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was near. When, therefore, Jesus had lifted up His eyes and seen that a very great crowd had come to Him, He said to Philip, Whence shall we buy bread that these may eat? But He said this to try him, for He Himself knew what He would do. Philip answered Him, Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not enough for them, that each one may receive a little. One of His disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, said to Him, There is a young boy here who has five barley loaves and two fishes; but what are these among so many? Jesus then said, Make the people recline. Now there was much grass in the place. The men therefore reclined, in number about five thousand. Jesus then took the loaves, and when He had given thanks, distributed them to those reclining; and likewise the fishes, as much as they wished. But when they were filled, He said to His disciples, Gather the fragments that are left over, lest they be wasted. They therefore gathered them up; and they filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten. When the people, therefore, had seen the sign which Jesus had worked, they said, This is indeed the Prophet Who is to come into the world. So when Jesus perceived that they would come to take Him by force and make Him king He fled again to the mountain, Himself alone.

At the conclusion of the Gospel…

S. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

P. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Sermon

SIT
After the Gospel, if there is to be a sermon, the priest will return to the middle of the altar and remove his maniple, which signifies that there is a pause in the celebration of the Mass. The MC, thurifer and acolytes will also move to the middle, genuflect and then take a seat at the sedilia (chairs) in the sanctuary. After the sermon, the priest will return and put the maniple back on his arm and then continue as below.

Creed 

Father is in the center

On Sundays and certain Feasts the priest recites the Creed, a summary of the Catholic Doctrine. This profession of faith was drawn up in the General Councils of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381 to condemn heretics who denied that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost  are God.
As with the Gloria, Father will intone the first words of the Credo and then the schola will continue with the chant while the priest says the rest quietly. Often the MC will lead Father to the sedilia to sit when the schola finishes.
You may chant the Credo with the schola if you wish.
STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et in visibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Bow head Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de coelis. 

Here kneel down. Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Rise. 

Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. 

Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio Bow head simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri saeculi. Amen.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things, visible and invisible. And in one Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. And born of the Father, before all ages. God of God: Light of Light: true God of true God. Begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven. 

Here kneel down. And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. Rise.

He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, of whose kingdom there shall be no end. 

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son. Who together, with the Father and the Son, is Bow head adored and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets. And in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead. And the life  of the world to come. Amen. 

Offertory 

The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says in Latin:

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

SIT
Then the priest says and the schola chants the Offertory verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. 

Ps 134:3, 6
Praise the Lord, for He is good; sing praise to His Name, for He is sweet; all that He wills He does in heaven and on earth.

This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says in Latin:

Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier’s lance.

O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen. 

 We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen. 

Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God. 

Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.

Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless  this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name. 

Father will now incense the gifts and the altar.

Lavabo

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice, and then says in Latin:

Ps. 25. 6-12

I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

“This majestic prayer of offering to the Most Holy Trinity states in detail the particular purpose for which the holy Sacrifice is offered.”1

Father is in the center

Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

The Orate Fratres

The priest kisses the altar and turns towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, and say audibly “Orate fratres.” He then turns back to the altar and continues silently in Latin:

P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty. 

The MC answers on our behalf in Latin:

S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.  

The priest answers in a low voice:

P. Amen. 

Secret 

This prayer is one of the variable parts of the Mass, called the propers, which changes based on the Mass being celebrated and is prayed silently. It is “the completion of the Offertory and introduces the actual oblation of the Sacrifice in the great prayer of the Canon”1 of the Mass.

Look with favor, we beseech You, O Lord, upon the offerings here before You, that they may be beneficial for our devotion and salvation.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Preface 

STAND
The priest begins the Preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with important Feasts.
You may respond with the MC and schola the following:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spíritu tuo.

P. Sursum corda.

S. Habémus ad Dóminum.

P. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.

S. Dignum et justum est.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Lift up your hearts. 

S. We have lifted them up to the Lord. 

P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

S. It is right and just. 

The particular Preface changes for certain Masses, with the Preface of the Holy Trinity used on most Sundays.  Lent has its own, proper preface.

Lent
It is 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 by this bodily fast, dost curb our vices, dost lift up our minds and bestow on us strength and rewards; through Christ our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with these we entreat Thee that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted while we say with lowly praise:

Sanctus

Immediately at the conclusion of the Preface the priest begins the Sanctus and the bells are rung three times.
The schola will also chant the Sanctus, which you may join if you wish. It is customary to Cross yourself at the Benedictus.
KNEEL

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

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest!  Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! 

Canon 

The Canon of the Mass is made up of the fixed forms of the prayers from the Sanctus to the Pater Noster. It is said silently by the priest.

Prayers for the Church

We therefore, humbly pray and beseech Thee, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ; Thy Son, our Lord, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to accept and bless. these  gifts, these  presents, these  holy unspotted Sacrifices, which in the first place we offer Thee for Thy holy Catholic Church to which vouchsafe to grant peace, as also to preserve, unite, and govern it throughout the world, together with Thy servant N. our Pope, and N. our Bishop, and all orthodox believers and professors of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith. 

Commemoration of the Living

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants and handmaidens, N. et N. and of all here present, whose faith and devotion are known unto Thee, for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves, their families and friends, for the redemption of their souls, for the health and salvation they hope for; and who now pay their vows to Thee, the everlasting, living and true God. 

We pray in union with and honor the memory, especially of the glorious ever Virgin Mary, mother of our God and Lord Jesus Christ: as also of the blessed Joseph, her Spouse, and of the blessed Apostles and Martyrs Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and of all Thy Saints, through whose merits and prayers, grant that we may in all things be defended by the help of Thy protection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Prayers at the Consecration

Spreading his hands over the oblation, the bells are rung one time to signal that the Consecration is approaching and the priest says in Latin:

We therefore beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this oblation of our service, as also of Thy whole family; and to dispose our days in Thy peace, preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of Thine Elect. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all respects, to bless,  approve,  ratify,  make worthy and acceptable; that it may be made for us the Body  and Blood  of Thy most beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Consecration of the Host

Who, the day before He suffered, took bread into His holy and venerable hands, and with His eyes lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed  it, broke it and gave it to His disciples saying: Take and eat ye all of this, 

The words of the Consecration of the Host:

FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

After pronouncing the words of the Consecration, the priest, kneeling, adores the Sacred Host; rising, he elevates It, then placing It on the corporal, again adores It. After this he never disjoins his fingers and thumbs, except when he is to take the Host, until after the washing of his fingers during the ablutions.
You may wish to look up at the Sacred Host, with faith, piety, and love, saying to yourself: MY LORD and MY GOD!

Consecration of the Wine

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands He blessed  , and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this,  

The words of Consecration of the Chalice:

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT, THE MYSTERY OF FAITH; WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

The priest kneels and adores the Precious Blood; rising, he elevates the Chalice, and setting it down he covers it and adores it again. 
You may wish to look up at the Chalice and say to yourself something such as: BE MINDFUL O LORD, OF THY CREATURE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED BY THY PRECIOUS BLOOD!
After the elevation of the Chalice, the priest says in a low voice in Latin:

As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in remembrance of Me.

Prayers After Consecration

The priest continues silently in Latin:

Wherefore, O Lord, we Thy servants, as also Thy holy people, calling to mind the blessed Passion of the same Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, and also His Resurrection from the dead and His glorious Ascension into heaven: do offer unto Thy most excellent Majesty of Thine own gifts, bestowed upon us, a pure  Victim, a holy  Victim, an unspotted  Victim, the holy  Bread of eternal life, and the Chalice ☩ of everlasting salvation. 

Upon which vouchsafe to look with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou wert graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our patriarch Abraham, and that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim.

We most humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine majesty, that as many as shall partake of the most holy Body  and Blood  of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Commemoration of the Dead

Remember also, O Lord, Thy servants and handmaids N. and N., who are gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace; Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The priest says the first words, “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in a somewhat elevated tone of voice, to symbolize an act of public self-humiliation; at the same time he strikes his breast in a token of contrition.

To us also, Thy sinful servants, confiding in the multitude of Thy mercies, vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with Thy holy Apostles and Martyrs, with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia, and with all Thy Saints, into whose company we beseech Thee to admit us, not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses. Through Christ our Lord. 

By Whom, O Lord, Thou dost ever create, sanctify,  quicken,  bless,  and give unto us all these good things. 

He uncovers the Chalice, and genuflects: then taking the Host in his right hand, and holding the Chalice in his left, he signs with the Sign of the Cross five times across the Chalice, saying:

By Him,  and with Him,  and in Him  is to Thee, God the Father  almighty, in the unity of the Holy  Ghost, all honor and glory. 

Replacing the Host, and covering the Chalice, he kneels down, and rising again, he says in Latin:

P. Per omnia secula saecolorum.

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

Pater Noster 

In the Extraordinary Form, the priest alone says the Our Father.
You may, however, join the schola and MC in chanting the “Sed libera nos a malo” response.
STAND

Oremus: etc.

Let us pray. Instructed by Thy saving precepts, and following Thy divine institution, we are bold to say: 

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: 

S. Sed libera nos a malo. 

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. 

S. But deliver us from evil.

P. Amen.   

The priest continues silently in Latin: 

Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may be always free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. 

Who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth God,

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

KNEEL

P. Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The peace  of the Lord be  always with  you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

He puts a Particle of the Sacred Host into the Chalice, saying in Latin:

May this mixture and consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ be to us who receive it effectual unto eternal life. Amen. 

Agnus Dei

He covers the Chalice, genuflects and rises; then bowing down and striking his breast thrice, he says the Angus Dei.
You may join the schola in chanting the Agnus Dei if you wish.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast grant us peace. 

Prayers for Holy Communion

With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers in Latin:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen. 

Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

Communion of the Priest

The priest genuflects, rises and says in Latin:

I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord. 

Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says in Latin “Domine, non sum dignus…” three times devoutly and humbly while the bells are rung:

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time. Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:

What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 

After the priest consumes the Host, the servers move to the credence table to put away the bells and retrieve the patens they will use during the distribution of Communion.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:

The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Holy Communion

In many places there is often no longer an additional Confiteor immediately before Communion, however it is still a pious custom of many of the faithful to pray it quietly on their own even if the altar boys or sacred ministers do not recite it.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon me, forgive me my sins, and bring me unto life everlasting. Amen. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant me pardon, absolution, and remission of my sins. Amen. 

Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:

Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccáta mundi. 

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world. 

And then he says three times in Latin the following. 
In some places it is a custom for the congregation, even at a Low Mass, to quietly pray these words in Latin outloud:

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.  

If you will be receiving Communion, now is typically an appropriate time to get up and go to the altar rail.
Note: In the Extraordinary Form, Communion is received on the tongue while kneeling (if there are no physical impediments) at the altar rail.

You do not say “Amen”, the priest says it at the end of the prayer. 
The priest, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host, says the following prayer as he administers Holy Communion to you: 

P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.

Ablutions

Father is in the center

After Communion, the priest returns to the altar and says silently:

Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy. 

Then he holds out the Chalice to the server who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:

May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution at the right side of the altar. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass.

Communion and Post Communion Verses

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Communion and Post Communion verses are the final two propers, or variable parts, of the Mass. The priest goes to the Missal on the epistle side and says the Communion verse. (The schola will have already chanted this prayer.)

Ps 121:3-4
Jerusalem, built as a city, with compact unity: to it the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, to give thanks to Your Name, O Lord.

Father returns to the middle, kisses the altar and the returns to the epistle side where he chants the Post Communion.
STAND

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Oremus

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

Grant, we beseech You, merciful God, that we may treat with sincere reverence, and consume with heartfelt faith Your sacrament, which ever fills us to overflowing.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Conclusion 

Father is in the center

The priest turns to the people and chants: 

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Ite Missa est.

S. Deo Gratias.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Go, the Mass is ended.

S. Thanks be to God.

KNEEL
The priest turns back to the altar and says silently in Latin:

May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He kisses the altar, turns to the people and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:

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

S. Amen. 

Last Gospel

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Then turning to the gospel-side of the altar, the priest says:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

This Gospel is recited at the end of most Masses. In it “St. John declares that Christ, the Word made Flesh, is the source of life on earth, the light in the darkness, and the love that will last forever.”1 The priest traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:

The beginning  of the holy Gospel according to John. 

S. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

John. 1, 1-14. 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he was to testify concerning the Light. 

That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

Here all kneel. And the Word was made flesh, Rise  

and dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

R. Thanks be to God.

After the Last Gospel there are no Leonine prayers as at a Low Mass.

Recessional

STAND
After Mass, and after the conclusion of the recessional hymn, it is customary for the faithful to kneel for a moment in thanksgiving for the Holy Mass just offered. You may wish to add prayers of thanksgiving for the priest who celebrated the Mass; your parish and bishop; holy priests, religious and faithful persecuted for their fidelity; and for the great gift of Summorum Pontificum, which Pope Benedict XVI gave us in 2007.

1 “Latin-English Booklet Missal,” Coalition in Support of Ecclesia Dei, Fourth Edition, 2008.

Third Sunday of Lent High Mass

Welcome to Phone Missal! The beta version of the site was rushed out in order to provide the faithful, especially those still learning the Extraordinary Form Mass, with a resource to use since so many parishes are unable to have pew missals or other handouts due to the virus.

Explanations as to what the priest and servers are doing and where they are standing are provided to help you follow along. The instructions in red text are generally based on local customs at our local parish in our diocese. But they are just suggestions as there are no hard and fast rules for the congregation. The church where you attend Mass may have slightly different customs. You should follow those.

Note: The altar boys and schola generally make the responses on your behalf in the Extraordinary Form High Mass, but the congregation may join in singing some of the prayers with the schola. Those are noted below. But as at a Low Mass, you are always free to simply pray quietly to yourself. (With the caveat about local customs noted above.)

Please provide us with your feedback to help us make this a more useful resource for you. Thank you and may God bless you!

A High Mass (also known as a sung Mass or a Missa cantata) is typically celebrated with a priest, a master of ceremonies (MC), a thurifer, two acolytes, a crucifer, and up to six torchbearers. There will be six candles lit on the altar. The Missal will be open on the stand on the right-side (known as the Epistle side) of the altar.
High Mass notes: One difference from the Ordinary Form that you will notice is that prayers and actions often happen in parallel in the Extraordinary Form. In the OF, things always happen sequentially. For instance, the schola may chant the Introit during the procession or as the priest and servers are praying the prayers at the foot of the altar. This can be confusing at first, but over time you will become accustomed to this.

Asperges

On Sundays only, the Asperges may take place immediately after the procession and before the prayers at the foot of the altar.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Father is in the center

The priest, after processing in and genuflecting to the Tabernacle with the servers, waits for the MC to take his biretta to the sedilia (which is Latin for chairs) and return. Bowing down, he makes the Sign of the Cross while the MC, other servers and faithful kneel, and says in Latin: 
KNEEL

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,  and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God.

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.

The priest alternates with the MC in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.

Ps. 42, 1-5. 

P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles. 

S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth. 

P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me? 

S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God. 

P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 

S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

The priest repeats the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God. 

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth. 

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says in Latin:

P. Our help  is in the Name of the Lord. 

S. Who made heaven and earth. 

Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor in Latin:

P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

The priest answers: 

P. Amen.

The MC says the Confiteor in Latin. You may wish to pray these words silently to yourself in either Latin or English. It would be appropriate to bow your head slightly as you pray this since it is a penitential prayer.

S. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

Then the priest, with his hands joined, says in Latin:

P. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

S. Amen.

The MC (and you if you wish) make the Sign of the Cross, with the priest saying in Latin:

P. May the  almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.

S. Amen. 

Bowing down, the priest proceeds in Latin:

P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us. 

S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee. 

P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. 

S. And grant us Thy salvation. 

P. O Lord, hear my prayer. 

S. And let my cry come before Thee. 

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

The priest extends then joins his hands and, after audibly saying “Oremus” (“Let us pray”), he ascends to the altar while saying the following prayer silently in Latin.

Let us pray. 

Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

His hands joined, and bowing down over the middle of the altar, the priest says:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

At the conclusion of these prayers and prior to the Introit, the priest, accompanied by the MC and thurifer, will incense the altar for the first time. After the incensation of the altar is complete, the MC will incense the priest.

Introit 

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

Moving to the Epistle-side (the right side) of the altar, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross and reads the Introit in Latin. The Introit is chanted by the schola, but as noted above, they may have already chanted this during the procession, the prayers at the foot of the altar or during the incensation. The Introit is the first of the variable texts, called “the propers,” that change depending on the Mass of the day.

Ps 24:15-16
My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He will free my feet from the snare. Look toward me, and have pity on me, for I am alone and afflicted.
Ps 24:1-2
To You I lift up my soul, O Lord. In You, O my God, I trust; let me not be put to shame.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He will free my feet from the snare. Look toward me, and have pity on me, for I am alone and afflicted.

Kyrie 

Father is in the center

At a sung Mass, the schola will chant the Kyrie, but this may happen before or as the priest says the words. You may chant the Kyrie with the schola if you wish.
The priest moves to the middle and alternates with the MC saying the only Greek words in the Mass:

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Christe, eléison. 
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

S. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

Gloria 

The Gloria is omitted in Lent.
Then the priest turns to the people and sings:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The Lord be with you.

S. And with thy spirit.

 Collect 

STAND

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Collect is the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. It changes with each Mass. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
The priest returns to the Epistle-side of the altar and chants the Collect in Latin:

P. Oremus.

P. Let us pray.

We beseech You, almighty God, hear the prayers of the humble and stretch forth the right hand of Your majesty to protect us.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The Epistle, Gradual and Tract

SIT
The Epistle, or lesson, is like the second reading in the Ordinary Form in that it is frequently (though certainly not always) from St. Paul. Along with the Gradual and Tract (which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons), the Epistle changes depending on the Mass of the day.
After chanting the Collect, the priest will also chant the Epistle.
Epistle

Lesson from the letter of St. Paul to the Ephesians
Eph 5:1-9
Brethren: Be imitators of God, as very dear children and walk in love, as Christ also loved us and delivered Himself up for us an offering and a sacrifice to God to ascend in fragrant odor. But immorality and every uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as becomes saints; or obscenity or foolish talk or scurrility, which are out of place; but rather thanksgiving. For know this and understand, that no fornicator, or unclean person, or covetous one – for that is idolatry – has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one lead you astray with empty words; for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the children of disobedience. Do not, then, become partakers with them. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk, then, as children of light, for the fruit of the light is in all goodness and justice and truth.

S. Thanks be to God.

After the Epistle is finished, Father will place his left hand on the altar and the MC responds “Deo gratias.”
Father will now quietly say and the schola will chant the Gradual and Alleluia (or the Tract which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons). If the chants will be lengthy, the MC may lead Father to the sedilia to sit until they are nearly finished.
Gradual and Tract

Ps 9:20, 4
Rise, O Lord, let not man prevail; let the nations be judged in Your presence.
V. Because my enemies are turned back, overthrown and destroyed before You.

Tractus
Ps 122:1-3
To You I lift up my eyes, Who are enthroned in heaven.
V. Behold, as the eyes of servants are on the hands of their masters.
V. As the eyes of a maid are on the hands of her mistress, so are our eyes on the Lord our God, till He have pity on us.
V. Have pity on us, O Lord, have pity on us.

When the Tract is nearly finished, the MC will lead Father back to the altar to meet the thurifer if he was sitting. Father will impose incense and then say the prayers below.
The thurifer, the MC with the Missal and the two Acolytes with candles will meet in the middle and begin a procession to the Gospel-side of the altar, where Father will proclaim the Gospel.

Munda Cor Meum

Father is in the center

As the server transfers the Missal to the Gospel-side of the altar, the priest moves to the middle of the altar and bowing down says in Latin:

Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen. 

Gospel 

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Except for Solemn Mass, when he will remain in the middle, the priest moves from the middle to the left side of the altar, and begins in Latin:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Luke
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Luke 11:14-28
At that time, Jesus was casting out a devil, and the same was dumb; and when He had cast out the devil, the dumb man spoke. And the crowds marveled. But some of them said, By Beelzebub, the prince of devils, He casts out devils. And others, to test Him, demanded from Him a sign from heaven. But He, seeing their thoughts, said to them: Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and house will fall upon house. If, then, Satan also is divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because you say that I cast out devils by Beelzebub. Now, if I cast out devils by Beelzebub, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. But if I cast out devils by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. When the strong man, fully armed, guards his courtyard, his property is undisturbed. But if a stronger than he attacks and overcomes him, he will take away all his weapons that he relied upon, and will divide his spoils. He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters. When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he roams through waterless places in search of rest; and finding none, he says, ‘I will return to my house which I left.’ And when he has come to it, he finds the place swept. Then he goes and takes seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there; and the last state of that man becomes worse that the first. Now it came to pass as He was saying these things, that a certain woman from the crowd lifted up her voice and said to Him, Blessed is the womb that bore You, and the breasts that nursed You. But He said, Rather, blessed are they who hear the word of God and keep it.

At the conclusion of the Gospel…

S. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

P. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Sermon

SIT
After the Gospel, if there is to be a sermon, the priest will return to the middle of the altar and remove his maniple, which signifies that there is a pause in the celebration of the Mass. The MC, thurifer and acolytes will also move to the middle, genuflect and then take a seat at the sedilia (chairs) in the sanctuary. After the sermon, the priest will return and put the maniple back on his arm and then continue as below.

Creed 

Father is in the center

On Sundays and certain Feasts the priest recites the Creed, a summary of the Catholic Doctrine. This profession of faith was drawn up in the General Councils of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381 to condemn heretics who denied that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost  are God.
As with the Gloria, Father will intone the first words of the Credo and then the schola will continue with the chant while the priest says the rest quietly. Often the MC will lead Father to the sedilia to sit when the schola finishes.
You may chant the Credo with the schola if you wish.
STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et in visibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Bow head Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de coelis. 

Here kneel down. Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Rise. 

Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. 

Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio Bow head simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri saeculi. Amen.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things, visible and invisible. And in one Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. And born of the Father, before all ages. God of God: Light of Light: true God of true God. Begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven. 

Here kneel down. And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. Rise.

He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, of whose kingdom there shall be no end. 

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son. Who together, with the Father and the Son, is Bow head adored and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets. And in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead. And the life  of the world to come. Amen. 

Offertory 

The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says in Latin:

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

SIT
Then the priest says and the schola chants the Offertory verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. 

Ps 18:9-12
The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart, and His ordinances are sweeter than syrup or honey from the comb; therefore Your servant is careful of them.

This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says in Latin:

Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier’s lance.

O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen. 

 We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen. 

Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God. 

Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.

Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless  this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name. 

Father will now incense the gifts and the altar.

Lavabo

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice, and then says in Latin:

Ps. 25. 6-12

I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

“This majestic prayer of offering to the Most Holy Trinity states in detail the particular purpose for which the holy Sacrifice is offered.”1

Father is in the center

Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

The Orate Fratres

The priest kisses the altar and turns towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, and say audibly “Orate fratres.” He then turns back to the altar and continues silently in Latin:

P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty. 

The MC answers on our behalf in Latin:

S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.  

The priest answers in a low voice:

P. Amen. 

Secret 

This prayer is one of the variable parts of the Mass, called the propers, which changes based on the Mass being celebrated and is prayed silently. It is “the completion of the Offertory and introduces the actual oblation of the Sacrifice in the great prayer of the Canon”1 of the Mass.

May this offering, we beseech You, O Lord, cleanse us of our sins, and make holy the bodies and minds of Your servants for the celebration of the sacrificial rite.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Preface 

STAND
The priest begins the Preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with important Feasts.
You may respond with the MC and schola the following:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spíritu tuo.

P. Sursum corda.

S. Habémus ad Dóminum.

P. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.

S. Dignum et justum est.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Lift up your hearts. 

S. We have lifted them up to the Lord. 

P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

S. It is right and just. 

The particular Preface changes for certain Masses, with the Preface of the Holy Trinity used on most Sundays.  Lent has its own, proper preface.

Lent
It is 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 by this bodily fast, dost curb our vices, dost lift up our minds and bestow on us strength and rewards; through Christ our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with these we entreat Thee that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted while we say with lowly praise:

Sanctus

Immediately at the conclusion of the Preface the priest begins the Sanctus and the bells are rung three times.
The schola will also chant the Sanctus, which you may join if you wish. It is customary to Cross yourself at the Benedictus.
KNEEL

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

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest!  Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! 

Canon 

The Canon of the Mass is made up of the fixed forms of the prayers from the Sanctus to the Pater Noster. It is said silently by the priest.

Prayers for the Church

We therefore, humbly pray and beseech Thee, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ; Thy Son, our Lord, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to accept and bless. these  gifts, these  presents, these  holy unspotted Sacrifices, which in the first place we offer Thee for Thy holy Catholic Church to which vouchsafe to grant peace, as also to preserve, unite, and govern it throughout the world, together with Thy servant N. our Pope, and N. our Bishop, and all orthodox believers and professors of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith. 

Commemoration of the Living

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants and handmaidens, N. et N. and of all here present, whose faith and devotion are known unto Thee, for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves, their families and friends, for the redemption of their souls, for the health and salvation they hope for; and who now pay their vows to Thee, the everlasting, living and true God. 

We pray in union with and honor the memory, especially of the glorious ever Virgin Mary, mother of our God and Lord Jesus Christ: as also of the blessed Joseph, her Spouse, and of the blessed Apostles and Martyrs Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and of all Thy Saints, through whose merits and prayers, grant that we may in all things be defended by the help of Thy protection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Prayers at the Consecration

Spreading his hands over the oblation, the bells are rung one time to signal that the Consecration is approaching and the priest says in Latin:

We therefore beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this oblation of our service, as also of Thy whole family; and to dispose our days in Thy peace, preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of Thine Elect. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all respects, to bless,  approve,  ratify,  make worthy and acceptable; that it may be made for us the Body  and Blood  of Thy most beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Consecration of the Host

Who, the day before He suffered, took bread into His holy and venerable hands, and with His eyes lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed  it, broke it and gave it to His disciples saying: Take and eat ye all of this, 

The words of the Consecration of the Host:

FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

After pronouncing the words of the Consecration, the priest, kneeling, adores the Sacred Host; rising, he elevates It, then placing It on the corporal, again adores It. After this he never disjoins his fingers and thumbs, except when he is to take the Host, until after the washing of his fingers during the ablutions.
You may wish to look up at the Sacred Host, with faith, piety, and love, saying to yourself: MY LORD and MY GOD!

Consecration of the Wine

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands He blessed  , and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this,  

The words of Consecration of the Chalice:

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT, THE MYSTERY OF FAITH; WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

The priest kneels and adores the Precious Blood; rising, he elevates the Chalice, and setting it down he covers it and adores it again. 
You may wish to look up at the Chalice and say to yourself something such as: BE MINDFUL O LORD, OF THY CREATURE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED BY THY PRECIOUS BLOOD!
After the elevation of the Chalice, the priest says in a low voice in Latin:

As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in remembrance of Me.

Prayers After Consecration

The priest continues silently in Latin:

Wherefore, O Lord, we Thy servants, as also Thy holy people, calling to mind the blessed Passion of the same Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, and also His Resurrection from the dead and His glorious Ascension into heaven: do offer unto Thy most excellent Majesty of Thine own gifts, bestowed upon us, a pure  Victim, a holy  Victim, an unspotted  Victim, the holy  Bread of eternal life, and the Chalice ☩ of everlasting salvation. 

Upon which vouchsafe to look with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou wert graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our patriarch Abraham, and that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim.

We most humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine majesty, that as many as shall partake of the most holy Body  and Blood  of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Commemoration of the Dead

Remember also, O Lord, Thy servants and handmaids N. and N., who are gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace; Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The priest says the first words, “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in a somewhat elevated tone of voice, to symbolize an act of public self-humiliation; at the same time he strikes his breast in a token of contrition.

To us also, Thy sinful servants, confiding in the multitude of Thy mercies, vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with Thy holy Apostles and Martyrs, with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia, and with all Thy Saints, into whose company we beseech Thee to admit us, not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses. Through Christ our Lord. 

By Whom, O Lord, Thou dost ever create, sanctify,  quicken,  bless,  and give unto us all these good things. 

He uncovers the Chalice, and genuflects: then taking the Host in his right hand, and holding the Chalice in his left, he signs with the Sign of the Cross five times across the Chalice, saying:

By Him,  and with Him,  and in Him  is to Thee, God the Father  almighty, in the unity of the Holy  Ghost, all honor and glory. 

Replacing the Host, and covering the Chalice, he kneels down, and rising again, he says in Latin:

P. Per omnia secula saecolorum.

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

Pater Noster 

In the Extraordinary Form, the priest alone says the Our Father.
You may, however, join the schola and MC in chanting the “Sed libera nos a malo” response.
STAND

Oremus: etc.

Let us pray. Instructed by Thy saving precepts, and following Thy divine institution, we are bold to say: 

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: 

S. Sed libera nos a malo. 

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. 

S. But deliver us from evil.

P. Amen.   

The priest continues silently in Latin: 

Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may be always free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. 

Who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth God,

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

KNEEL

P. Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The peace  of the Lord be  always with  you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

He puts a Particle of the Sacred Host into the Chalice, saying in Latin:

May this mixture and consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ be to us who receive it effectual unto eternal life. Amen. 

Agnus Dei

He covers the Chalice, genuflects and rises; then bowing down and striking his breast thrice, he says the Angus Dei.
You may join the schola in chanting the Agnus Dei if you wish.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast grant us peace. 

Prayers for Holy Communion

With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers in Latin:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen. 

Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

Communion of the Priest

The priest genuflects, rises and says in Latin:

I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord. 

Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says in Latin “Domine, non sum dignus…” three times devoutly and humbly while the bells are rung:

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time. Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:

What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 

After the priest consumes the Host, the servers move to the credence table to put away the bells and retrieve the patens they will use during the distribution of Communion.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:

The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Holy Communion

In many places there is often no longer an additional Confiteor immediately before Communion, however it is still a pious custom of many of the faithful to pray it quietly on their own even if the altar boys or sacred ministers do not recite it.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon me, forgive me my sins, and bring me unto life everlasting. Amen. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant me pardon, absolution, and remission of my sins. Amen. 

Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:

Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccáta mundi. 

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world. 

And then he says three times in Latin the following. 
In some places it is a custom for the congregation, even at a Low Mass, to quietly pray these words in Latin outloud:

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.  

If you will be receiving Communion, now is typically an appropriate time to get up and go to the altar rail.
Note: In the Extraordinary Form, Communion is received on the tongue while kneeling (if there are no physical impediments) at the altar rail.

You do not say “Amen”, the priest says it at the end of the prayer. 
The priest, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host, says the following prayer as he administers Holy Communion to you: 

P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.

Ablutions

Father is in the center

After Communion, the priest returns to the altar and says silently:

Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy. 

Then he holds out the Chalice to the server who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:

May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution at the right side of the altar. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass.

Communion and Post Communion Verses

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Communion and Post Communion verses are the final two propers, or variable parts, of the Mass. The priest goes to the Missal on the epistle side and says the Communion verse. (The schola will have already chanted this prayer.)

Ps 83:4-5
The sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest in which she puts her young – Your altars, O Lord of Hosts, my King and my God! Happy they who dwell in Your house! continually they praise You.

Father returns to the middle, kisses the altar and the returns to the epistle side where he chants the Post Communion.
STAND

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Oremus

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

Be merciful, O Lord, we beseech You, and free from guilt and danger those whom You grant to share in this great sacrament.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Conclusion 

Father is in the center

The priest turns to the people and chants: 

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Ite Missa est.

S. Deo Gratias.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Go, the Mass is ended.

S. Thanks be to God.

KNEEL
The priest turns back to the altar and says silently in Latin:

May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He kisses the altar, turns to the people and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:

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

S. Amen. 

Last Gospel

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Then turning to the gospel-side of the altar, the priest says:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

This Gospel is recited at the end of most Masses. In it “St. John declares that Christ, the Word made Flesh, is the source of life on earth, the light in the darkness, and the love that will last forever.”1 The priest traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:

The beginning  of the holy Gospel according to John. 

S. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

John. 1, 1-14. 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he was to testify concerning the Light. 

That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

Here all kneel. And the Word was made flesh, Rise  

and dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

R. Thanks be to God.

After the Last Gospel there are no Leonine prayers as at a Low Mass.

Recessional

STAND
After Mass, and after the conclusion of the recessional hymn, it is customary for the faithful to kneel for a moment in thanksgiving for the Holy Mass just offered. You may wish to add prayers of thanksgiving for the priest who celebrated the Mass; your parish and bishop; holy priests, religious and faithful persecuted for their fidelity; and for the great gift of Summorum Pontificum, which Pope Benedict XVI gave us in 2007.

Second Sunday of Lent High Mass

Welcome to Phone Missal! The beta version of the site was rushed out in order to provide the faithful, especially those still learning the Extraordinary Form Mass, with a resource to use since so many parishes are unable to have pew missals or other handouts due to the virus.

Explanations as to what the priest and servers are doing and where they are standing are provided to help you follow along. The instructions in red text are generally based on local customs at our local parish in our diocese. But they are just suggestions as there are no hard and fast rules for the congregation. The church where you attend Mass may have slightly different customs. You should follow those.

Note: The altar boys and schola generally make the responses on your behalf in the Extraordinary Form High Mass, but the congregation may join in singing some of the prayers with the schola. Those are noted below. But as at a Low Mass, you are always free to simply pray quietly to yourself. (With the caveat about local customs noted above.)

Please provide us with your feedback to help us make this a more useful resource for you. Thank you and may God bless you!

A High Mass (also known as a sung Mass or a Missa cantata) is typically celebrated with a priest, a master of ceremonies (MC), a thurifer, two acolytes, a crucifer, and up to six torchbearers. There will be six candles lit on the altar. The Missal will be open on the stand on the right-side (known as the Epistle side) of the altar.
High Mass notes: One difference from the Ordinary Form that you will notice is that prayers and actions often happen in parallel in the Extraordinary Form. In the OF, things always happen sequentially. For instance, the schola may chant the Introit during the procession or as the priest and servers are praying the prayers at the foot of the altar. This can be confusing at first, but over time you will become accustomed to this.

Asperges

On Sundays only, the Asperges may take place immediately after the procession and before the prayers at the foot of the altar.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Father is in the center

The priest, after processing in and genuflecting to the Tabernacle with the servers, waits for the MC to take his biretta to the sedilia (which is Latin for chairs) and return. Bowing down, he makes the Sign of the Cross while the MC, other servers and faithful kneel, and says in Latin: 
KNEEL

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,  and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God.

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.

The priest alternates with the MC in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.

Ps. 42, 1-5. 

P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles. 

S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth. 

P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me? 

S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God. 

P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 

S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

The priest repeats the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God. 

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth. 

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says in Latin:

P. Our help  is in the Name of the Lord. 

S. Who made heaven and earth. 

Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor in Latin:

P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

The priest answers: 

P. Amen.

The MC says the Confiteor in Latin. You may wish to pray these words silently to yourself in either Latin or English. It would be appropriate to bow your head slightly as you pray this since it is a penitential prayer.

S. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

Then the priest, with his hands joined, says in Latin:

P. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

S. Amen.

The MC (and you if you wish) make the Sign of the Cross, with the priest saying in Latin:

P. May the  almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.

S. Amen. 

Bowing down, the priest proceeds in Latin:

P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us. 

S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee. 

P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. 

S. And grant us Thy salvation. 

P. O Lord, hear my prayer. 

S. And let my cry come before Thee. 

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

The priest extends then joins his hands and, after audibly saying “Oremus” (“Let us pray”), he ascends to the altar while saying the following prayer silently in Latin.

Let us pray. 

Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

His hands joined, and bowing down over the middle of the altar, the priest says:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

At the conclusion of these prayers and prior to the Introit, the priest, accompanied by the MC and thurifer, will incense the altar for the first time. After the incensation of the altar is complete, the MC will incense the priest.

Introit 

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

Moving to the Epistle-side (the right side) of the altar, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross and reads the Introit in Latin. The Introit is chanted by the schola, but as noted above, they may have already chanted this during the procession, the prayers at the foot of the altar or during the incensation. The Introit is the first of the variable texts, called “the propers,” that change depending on the Mass of the day.

Ps 24:6, 3, 22
Remember that Your compassion, O Lord, and Your kindness are from of old; let not our enemies exult over us; deliver us, O God of Israel, from all our tribulations.
Ps 24:1-2
To You I lift up my soul, O Lord; in You, O my God, I trust; let me not be put to shame.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Remember that Your compassion, O Lord, and Your kindness are from of old; let not our enemies exult over us; deliver us, O God of Israel, from all our tribulations.

Kyrie 

Father is in the center

At a sung Mass, the schola will chant the Kyrie, but this may happen before or as the priest says the words. You may chant the Kyrie with the schola if you wish.
The priest moves to the middle and alternates with the MC saying the only Greek words in the Mass:

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Christe, eléison. 
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

S. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

Gloria 

The Gloria is omitted in Lent.
Then the priest turns to the people and sings:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The Lord be with you.

S. And with thy spirit.

 Collect 

STAND

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Collect is the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. It changes with each Mass. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
The priest returns to the Epistle-side of the altar and chants the Collect in Latin:

P. Oremus.

P. Let us pray.

O God, You Who see how we are deprived of all strength, guard us inwardly and outwardly, that in body we may be protected against all misfortunes, and in mind cleansed of evil thoughts.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The Epistle, Gradual and Tract

SIT
The Epistle, or lesson, is like the second reading in the Ordinary Form in that it is frequently (though certainly not always) from St. Paul. Along with the Gradual and Tract (which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons), the Epistle changes depending on the Mass of the day.
After chanting the Collect, the priest will also chant the Epistle.
Epistle

Lesson from the first Letter of St. Paul to the Thessalonians
1 Thess. 4:1-7
Brethren: Even as you have learned from us how you ought to walk to please God – as indeed you are walking – we beseech and exhort you in the Lord Jesus to make even greater progress. For you know what precepts I have given to you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that you abstain from immorality; that every one of you learn how to possess his vessel in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God; that no one transgress and overreach his brother in the matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all these things, as we have told you before and have testified. For God has not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness, in Christ Jesus our Lord.

S. Thanks be to God.

After the Epistle is finished, Father will place his left hand on the altar and the MC responds “Deo gratias.”
Father will now quietly say and the schola will chant the Gradual and Alleluia (or the Tract which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons). If the chants will be lengthy, the MC may lead Father to the sedilia to sit until they are nearly finished.
Gradual and Tract

Ps 24:17-18
Relieve the troubles of my heart and bring me out of my distress, O Lord.
V. Put an end to my affliction and my suffering, and take away all my sins.

Tractus
Ps 105:1-4
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His kindness endures forever.
V. Who can tell the mighty deeds of the Lord, or proclaim all His praises?
V. Happy are they who observe what is right, who do always what is just.
V. Remember us, O Lord, as You favor Your people; visit us with Your saving help.

When the Tract is nearly finished, the MC will lead Father back to the altar to meet the thurifer if he was sitting. Father will impose incense and then say the prayers below.
The thurifer, the MC with the Missal and the two Acolytes with candles will meet in the middle and begin a procession to the Gospel-side of the altar, where Father will proclaim the Gospel.

Munda Cor Meum

Father is in the center

As the server transfers the Missal to the Gospel-side of the altar, the priest moves to the middle of the altar and bowing down says in Latin:

Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen. 

Gospel 

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Except for Solemn Mass, when he will remain in the middle, the priest moves from the middle to the left side of the altar, and begins in Latin:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Matt 17:1-9
At that time, Jesus took Peter, James and his brother John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves, and was transfigured before them. And His face shone as the sun, and His garments became white as snow. And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elias talking together with Him. Then Peter addressed Jesus, saying, Lord, it is good for us to be here. If You will, let us set up three tents here, one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elias. As he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased; hear Him. And on hearing it the disciplines fell on their faces and were exceedingly afraid. And Jesus came near and touched them, and said to them, Arise, and do not be afraid. But lifting up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. And as they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus cautioned them, saying, Tell the vision to no one, till the Son of Man has risen from the dead.

At the conclusion of the Gospel…

S. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

P. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Sermon

SIT
After the Gospel, if there is to be a sermon, the priest will return to the middle of the altar and remove his maniple, which signifies that there is a pause in the celebration of the Mass. The MC, thurifer and acolytes will also move to the middle, genuflect and then take a seat at the sedilia (chairs) in the sanctuary. After the sermon, the priest will return and put the maniple back on his arm and then continue as below.

Creed 

Father is in the center

On Sundays and certain Feasts the priest recites the Creed, a summary of the Catholic Doctrine. This profession of faith was drawn up in the General Councils of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381 to condemn heretics who denied that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost  are God.
As with the Gloria, Father will intone the first words of the Credo and then the schola will continue with the chant while the priest says the rest quietly. Often the MC will lead Father to the sedilia to sit when the schola finishes.
You may chant the Credo with the schola if you wish.
STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et in visibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Bow head Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de coelis. 

Here kneel down. Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Rise. 

Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. 

Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio Bow head simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri saeculi. Amen.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things, visible and invisible. And in one Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. And born of the Father, before all ages. God of God: Light of Light: true God of true God. Begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven. 

Here kneel down. And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. Rise.

He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, of whose kingdom there shall be no end. 

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son. Who together, with the Father and the Son, is Bow head adored and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets. And in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead. And the life  of the world to come. Amen. 

Offertory 

The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says in Latin:

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

SIT
Then the priest says and the schola chants the Offertory verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. 

Ps 118:47-48
I will delight in Your commands, which I love exceedingly; and I will lift up my hands to Your commands, which I love.

This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says in Latin:

Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier’s lance.

O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen. 

 We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen. 

Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God. 

Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.

Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless  this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name. 

Father will now incense the gifts and the altar.

Lavabo

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice, and then says in Latin:

Ps. 25. 6-12

I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

“This majestic prayer of offering to the Most Holy Trinity states in detail the particular purpose for which the holy Sacrifice is offered.”1

Father is in the center

Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

The Orate Fratres

The priest kisses the altar and turns towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, and say audibly “Orate fratres.” He then turns back to the altar and continues silently in Latin:

P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty. 

The MC answers on our behalf in Latin:

S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.  

The priest answers in a low voice:

P. Amen. 

Secret 

This prayer is one of the variable parts of the Mass, called the propers, which changes based on the Mass being celebrated and is prayed silently. It is “the completion of the Offertory and introduces the actual oblation of the Sacrifice in the great prayer of the Canon”1 of the Mass.

Look with favor, we beseech You, O Lord, upon the offerings here before You, that they may be beneficial for our devotion and for our salvation.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Preface 

STAND
The priest begins the Preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with important Feasts.
You may respond with the MC and schola the following:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spíritu tuo.

P. Sursum corda.

S. Habémus ad Dóminum.

P. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.

S. Dignum et justum est.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Lift up your hearts. 

S. We have lifted them up to the Lord. 

P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

S. It is right and just. 

The particular Preface changes for certain Masses, with the Preface of the Holy Trinity used on most Sundays.  Lent has its own, proper preface.

Lent
It is 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 by this bodily fast, dost curb our vices, dost lift up our minds and bestow on us strength and rewards; through Christ our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with these we entreat Thee that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted while we say with lowly praise:

Sanctus

Immediately at the conclusion of the Preface the priest begins the Sanctus and the bells are rung three times.
The schola will also chant the Sanctus, which you may join if you wish. It is customary to Cross yourself at the Benedictus.
KNEEL

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

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest!  Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! 

Canon 

The Canon of the Mass is made up of the fixed forms of the prayers from the Sanctus to the Pater Noster. It is said silently by the priest.

Prayers for the Church

We therefore, humbly pray and beseech Thee, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ; Thy Son, our Lord, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to accept and bless. these  gifts, these  presents, these  holy unspotted Sacrifices, which in the first place we offer Thee for Thy holy Catholic Church to which vouchsafe to grant peace, as also to preserve, unite, and govern it throughout the world, together with Thy servant N. our Pope, and N. our Bishop, and all orthodox believers and professors of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith. 

Commemoration of the Living

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants and handmaidens, N. et N. and of all here present, whose faith and devotion are known unto Thee, for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves, their families and friends, for the redemption of their souls, for the health and salvation they hope for; and who now pay their vows to Thee, the everlasting, living and true God. 

We pray in union with and honor the memory, especially of the glorious ever Virgin Mary, mother of our God and Lord Jesus Christ: as also of the blessed Joseph, her Spouse, and of the blessed Apostles and Martyrs Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and of all Thy Saints, through whose merits and prayers, grant that we may in all things be defended by the help of Thy protection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Prayers at the Consecration

Spreading his hands over the oblation, the bells are rung one time to signal that the Consecration is approaching and the priest says in Latin:

We therefore beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this oblation of our service, as also of Thy whole family; and to dispose our days in Thy peace, preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of Thine Elect. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all respects, to bless,  approve,  ratify,  make worthy and acceptable; that it may be made for us the Body  and Blood  of Thy most beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Consecration of the Host

Who, the day before He suffered, took bread into His holy and venerable hands, and with His eyes lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed  it, broke it and gave it to His disciples saying: Take and eat ye all of this, 

The words of the Consecration of the Host:

FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

After pronouncing the words of the Consecration, the priest, kneeling, adores the Sacred Host; rising, he elevates It, then placing It on the corporal, again adores It. After this he never disjoins his fingers and thumbs, except when he is to take the Host, until after the washing of his fingers during the ablutions.
You may wish to look up at the Sacred Host, with faith, piety, and love, saying to yourself: MY LORD and MY GOD!

Consecration of the Wine

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands He blessed  , and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this,  

The words of Consecration of the Chalice:

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT, THE MYSTERY OF FAITH; WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

The priest kneels and adores the Precious Blood; rising, he elevates the Chalice, and setting it down he covers it and adores it again. 
You may wish to look up at the Chalice and say to yourself something such as: BE MINDFUL O LORD, OF THY CREATURE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED BY THY PRECIOUS BLOOD!
After the elevation of the Chalice, the priest says in a low voice in Latin:

As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in remembrance of Me.

Prayers After Consecration

The priest continues silently in Latin:

Wherefore, O Lord, we Thy servants, as also Thy holy people, calling to mind the blessed Passion of the same Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, and also His Resurrection from the dead and His glorious Ascension into heaven: do offer unto Thy most excellent Majesty of Thine own gifts, bestowed upon us, a pure  Victim, a holy  Victim, an unspotted  Victim, the holy  Bread of eternal life, and the Chalice ☩ of everlasting salvation. 

Upon which vouchsafe to look with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou wert graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our patriarch Abraham, and that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim.

We most humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine majesty, that as many as shall partake of the most holy Body  and Blood  of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Commemoration of the Dead

Remember also, O Lord, Thy servants and handmaids N. and N., who are gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace; Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The priest says the first words, “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in a somewhat elevated tone of voice, to symbolize an act of public self-humiliation; at the same time he strikes his breast in a token of contrition.

To us also, Thy sinful servants, confiding in the multitude of Thy mercies, vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with Thy holy Apostles and Martyrs, with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia, and with all Thy Saints, into whose company we beseech Thee to admit us, not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses. Through Christ our Lord. 

By Whom, O Lord, Thou dost ever create, sanctify,  quicken,  bless,  and give unto us all these good things. 

He uncovers the Chalice, and genuflects: then taking the Host in his right hand, and holding the Chalice in his left, he signs with the Sign of the Cross five times across the Chalice, saying:

By Him,  and with Him,  and in Him  is to Thee, God the Father  almighty, in the unity of the Holy  Ghost, all honor and glory. 

Replacing the Host, and covering the Chalice, he kneels down, and rising again, he says in Latin:

P. Per omnia secula saecolorum.

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

Pater Noster 

In the Extraordinary Form, the priest alone says the Our Father.
You may, however, join the schola and MC in chanting the “Sed libera nos a malo” response.
STAND

Oremus: etc.

Let us pray. Instructed by Thy saving precepts, and following Thy divine institution, we are bold to say: 

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: 

S. Sed libera nos a malo. 

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. 

S. But deliver us from evil.

P. Amen.   

The priest continues silently in Latin: 

Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may be always free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. 

Who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth God,

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

KNEEL

P. Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The peace  of the Lord be  always with  you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

He puts a Particle of the Sacred Host into the Chalice, saying in Latin:

May this mixture and consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ be to us who receive it effectual unto eternal life. Amen. 

Agnus Dei

He covers the Chalice, genuflects and rises; then bowing down and striking his breast thrice, he says the Angus Dei.
You may join the schola in chanting the Agnus Dei if you wish.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast grant us peace. 

Prayers for Holy Communion

With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers in Latin:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen. 

Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

Communion of the Priest

The priest genuflects, rises and says in Latin:

I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord. 

Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says in Latin “Domine, non sum dignus…” three times devoutly and humbly while the bells are rung:

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time. Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:

What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 

After the priest consumes the Host, the servers move to the credence table to put away the bells and retrieve the patens they will use during the distribution of Communion.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:

The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Holy Communion

In many places there is often no longer an additional Confiteor immediately before Communion, however it is still a pious custom of many of the faithful to pray it quietly on their own even if the altar boys or sacred ministers do not recite it.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon me, forgive me my sins, and bring me unto life everlasting. Amen. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant me pardon, absolution, and remission of my sins. Amen. 

Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:

Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccáta mundi. 

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world. 

And then he says three times in Latin the following. 
In some places it is a custom for the congregation, even at a Low Mass, to quietly pray these words in Latin outloud:

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.  

If you will be receiving Communion, now is typically an appropriate time to get up and go to the altar rail.
Note: In the Extraordinary Form, Communion is received on the tongue while kneeling (if there are no physical impediments) at the altar rail.

You do not say “Amen”, the priest says it at the end of the prayer. 
The priest, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host, says the following prayer as he administers Holy Communion to you: 

P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.

Ablutions

Father is in the center

After Communion, the priest returns to the altar and says silently:

Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy. 

Then he holds out the Chalice to the server who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:

May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution at the right side of the altar. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass.

Communion and Post Communion Verses

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Communion and Post Communion verses are the final two propers, or variable parts, of the Mass. The priest goes to the Missal on the epistle side and says the Communion verse. (The schola will have already chanted this prayer.)

Ps 5:2-4
Attend to my sighing; heed my call for help, my King and my God! To You I pray, O Lord.

Father returns to the middle, kisses the altar and the returns to the epistle side where he chants the Post Communion.
STAND

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Oremus

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

O almighty God, we humbly beseech You that those whom You refresh with Your sacrament may also worthily serve You in a way pleasing to You.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Conclusion 

Father is in the center

The priest turns to the people and chants: 

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Ite Missa est.

S. Deo Gratias.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Go, the Mass is ended.

S. Thanks be to God.

KNEEL
The priest turns back to the altar and says silently in Latin:

May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He kisses the altar, turns to the people and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:

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

S. Amen. 

Last Gospel

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Then turning to the gospel-side of the altar, the priest says:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

This Gospel is recited at the end of most Masses. In it “St. John declares that Christ, the Word made Flesh, is the source of life on earth, the light in the darkness, and the love that will last forever.”1 The priest traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:

The beginning  of the holy Gospel according to John. 

S. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

John. 1, 1-14. 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he was to testify concerning the Light. 

That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

Here all kneel. And the Word was made flesh, Rise  

and dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

R. Thanks be to God.

After the Last Gospel there are no Leonine prayers as at a Low Mass.

Recessional

STAND
After Mass, and after the conclusion of the recessional hymn, it is customary for the faithful to kneel for a moment in thanksgiving for the Holy Mass just offered. You may wish to add prayers of thanksgiving for the priest who celebrated the Mass; your parish and bishop; holy priests, religious and faithful persecuted for their fidelity; and for the great gift of Summorum Pontificum, which Pope Benedict XVI gave us in 2007.

1 “Latin-English Booklet Missal,” Coalition in Support of Ecclesia Dei, Fourth Edition, 2008.

First Sunday of Lent High Mass

Welcome to Phone Missal! The beta version of the site was rushed out in order to provide the faithful, especially those still learning the Extraordinary Form Mass, with a resource to use since so many parishes are unable to have pew missals or other handouts due to the virus.

Explanations as to what the priest and servers are doing and where they are standing are provided to help you follow along. The instructions in red text are generally based on local customs at our local parish in our diocese. But they are just suggestions as there are no hard and fast rules for the congregation. The church where you attend Mass may have slightly different customs. You should follow those.

Note: The altar boys and schola generally make the responses on your behalf in the Extraordinary Form High Mass, but the congregation may join in singing some of the prayers with the schola. Those are noted below. But as at a Low Mass, you are always free to simply pray quietly to yourself. (With the caveat about local customs noted above.)

Please provide us with your feedback to help us make this a more useful resource for you. Thank you and may God bless you!

A High Mass (also known as a sung Mass or a Missa cantata) is typically celebrated with a priest, a master of ceremonies (MC), a thurifer, two acolytes, a crucifer, and up to six torchbearers. There will be six candles lit on the altar. The Missal will be open on the stand on the right-side (known as the Epistle side) of the altar.
High Mass notes: One difference from the Ordinary Form that you will notice is that prayers and actions often happen in parallel in the Extraordinary Form. In the OF, things always happen sequentially. For instance, the schola may chant the Introit during the procession or as the priest and servers are praying the prayers at the foot of the altar. This can be confusing at first, but over time you will become accustomed to this.

Asperges

On Sundays only, the Asperges may take place immediately after the procession and before the prayers at the foot of the altar.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Father is in the center

The priest, after processing in and genuflecting to the Tabernacle with the servers, waits for the MC to take his biretta to the sedilia (which is Latin for chairs) and return. Bowing down, he makes the Sign of the Cross while the MC, other servers and faithful kneel, and says in Latin: 
KNEEL

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,  and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God.

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.

The priest alternates with the MC in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.

Ps. 42, 1-5. 

P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles. 

S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth. 

P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me? 

S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God. 

P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 

S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

The priest repeats the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God. 

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth. 

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says in Latin:

P. Our help  is in the Name of the Lord. 

S. Who made heaven and earth. 

Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor in Latin:

P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

The priest answers: 

P. Amen.

The MC says the Confiteor in Latin. You may wish to pray these words silently to yourself in either Latin or English. It would be appropriate to bow your head slightly as you pray this since it is a penitential prayer.

S. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

Then the priest, with his hands joined, says in Latin:

P. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

S. Amen.

The MC (and you if you wish) make the Sign of the Cross, with the priest saying in Latin:

P. May the  almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.

S. Amen. 

Bowing down, the priest proceeds in Latin:

P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us. 

S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee. 

P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. 

S. And grant us Thy salvation. 

P. O Lord, hear my prayer. 

S. And let my cry come before Thee. 

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

The priest extends then joins his hands and, after audibly saying “Oremus” (“Let us pray”), he ascends to the altar while saying the following prayer silently in Latin.

Let us pray. 

Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

His hands joined, and bowing down over the middle of the altar, the priest says:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

At the conclusion of these prayers and prior to the Introit, the priest, accompanied by the MC and thurifer, will incense the altar for the first time. After the incensation of the altar is complete, the MC will incense the priest.

Introit 

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

Moving to the Epistle-side (the right side) of the altar, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross and reads the Introit in Latin. The Introit is chanted by the schola, but as noted above, they may have already chanted this during the procession, the prayers at the foot of the altar or during the incensation. The Introit is the first of the variable texts, called “the propers,” that change depending on the Mass of the day.

Ps 90:15-16
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will deliver him and glorify him; with length of days I will gratify him.
Ps 90:1
You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High, shall abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will deliver him and glorify him; with length of days I will gratify him.

Kyrie 

Father is in the center

At a sung Mass, the schola will chant the Kyrie, but this may happen before or as the priest says the words. You may chant the Kyrie with the schola if you wish.
The priest moves to the middle and alternates with the MC saying the only Greek words in the Mass:

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Christe, eléison. 
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

S. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

Gloria 

The Gloria is omitted in Lent.
Then the priest turns to the people and sings:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The Lord be with you.

S. And with thy spirit.

 Collect 

STAND

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Collect is the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. It changes with each Mass. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
The priest returns to the Epistle-side of the altar and chants the Collect in Latin:

P. Oremus.

P. Let us pray.

O God, You Who purify Your Church by the yearly Lenten observance, grant to Your household that what they strive to obtain from You by abstinence, they may achieve by good works.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The Epistle, Gradual and Tract

SIT
The Epistle, or lesson, is like the second reading in the Ordinary Form in that it is frequently (though certainly not always) from St. Paul. Along with the Gradual and Tract (which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons), the Epistle changes depending on the Mass of the day.
After chanting the Collect, the priest will also chant the Epistle.
Epistle

A reading from the Second Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians
2 Cor. 6:1-10
Brethren: We entreat you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says, In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you. Behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation! We give no offense to anyone, that our ministry may not be blamed. On the contrary, let us conduct ourselves in all circumstances as God’s ministers, in much patience; in tribulations, in hardships, in distresses; in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults; in labors, in sleepless nights, in fastings; in innocence, in knowledge, in long-sufferings; in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in unaffected love; in the word of truth, in the power of God; with the armor of justice on the right hand and on the left; in honor and dishonor, in evil report and good report; as deceivers and yet truthful, as unknown and yet well known, as dying, and behold, we live, as chastised but not killed, as sorrowful yet always rejoicing, as poor yet enriching many, as having nothing yet possessing all things.

S. Thanks be to God.

After the Epistle is finished, Father will place his left hand on the altar and the MC responds “Deo gratias.”
Father will now quietly say and the schola will chant the Gradual and Alleluia (or the Tract which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons). If the chants will be lengthy, the MC may lead Father to the sedilia to sit until they are nearly finished.
Gradual and Tract

Ps 90:11-12
To His angels God has given command about you, that they guard you in all your ways.
V. Upon their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Tractus
Ps 90:1-7, 11-16.
You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High, shall abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
V. Say to the Lord, My refuge and my fortress, my God, in Whom I trust.
V. For He will rescue you from the snare of the fowler, from the destroying pestilence.
V. With His pinions He will cover you, and under His wings you shall take refuge.
V. His faithfulness is a buckler and a shield; you shall not fear the terror of the night.
V. Nor the arrow that flies by day; nor the pestilence that roams in darkness; nor the devastating plague at noon.
V. Though a thousand fall at your side, ten thousand at your right side, near you it shall not come.
V. For to His angels He has given command about you, that they may guard you in all your ways.
V. Upon their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
V. You shall tread upon the asp and the viper; you shall trample down the lion and the dragon.
V. Because he clings to Me, I will deliver him; I will set him on high because he acknowledges My name.
V. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in distress.
V. I will deliver him and glorify him; with length of days I will gratify him and will show him My salvation

When the Tract is nearly finished, the MC will lead Father back to the altar to meet the thurifer if he was sitting. Father will impose incense and then say the prayers below.
The thurifer, the MC with the Missal and the two Acolytes with candles will meet in the middle and begin a procession to the Gospel-side of the altar, where Father will proclaim the Gospel.

Munda Cor Meum

Father is in the center

As the server transfers the Missal to the Gospel-side of the altar, the priest moves to the middle of the altar and bowing down says in Latin:

Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen. 

Gospel 

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Except for Solemn Mass, when he will remain in the middle, the priest moves from the middle to the left side of the altar, and begins in Latin:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Matt 4:1-11
At that time, Jesus was led into the desert by the Spirit, to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, He was hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become loaves of bread. But He answered and said, It is written, ‘Not by bread alone does man live, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.’ Then the devil took Him into the holy city and set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, ‘He has given His angels charge concerning You; and upon their hands they shall bear You up, lest You dash Your foot against a stone.’ Jesus said to him, It is written further, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them. And he said to Him, All these things will I give You, if You will fall down and worship me. Then Jesus said to him, Begone, Satan, for it is written, ‘The Lord your God shall you worship and Him only shall you serve.’ Then the devil left Him; and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.

At the conclusion of the Gospel…

S. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

P. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Sermon

SIT
After the Gospel, if there is to be a sermon, the priest will return to the middle of the altar and remove his maniple, which signifies that there is a pause in the celebration of the Mass. The MC, thurifer and acolytes will also move to the middle, genuflect and then take a seat at the sedilia (chairs) in the sanctuary. After the sermon, the priest will return and put the maniple back on his arm and then continue as below.

Creed 

Father is in the center

On Sundays and certain Feasts the priest recites the Creed, a summary of the Catholic Doctrine. This profession of faith was drawn up in the General Councils of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381 to condemn heretics who denied that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost  are God.
As with the Gloria, Father will intone the first words of the Credo and then the schola will continue with the chant while the priest says the rest quietly. Often the MC will lead Father to the sedilia to sit when the schola finishes.
You may chant the Credo with the schola if you wish.
STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et in visibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Bow head Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de coelis. 

Here kneel down. Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Rise. 

Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. 

Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio Bow head simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri saeculi. Amen.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things, visible and invisible. And in one Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. And born of the Father, before all ages. God of God: Light of Light: true God of true God. Begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven. 

Here kneel down. And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. Rise.

He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, of whose kingdom there shall be no end. 

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son. Who together, with the Father and the Son, is Bow head adored and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets. And in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead. And the life  of the world to come. Amen. 

Offertory 

The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says in Latin:

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

SIT
Then the priest says and the schola chants the Offertory verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. 

Ps 90:4-5
With His pinions the Lord will cover you, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His faithfulness is a buckler and a shield.

This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says in Latin:

Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier’s lance.

O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen. 

 We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen. 

Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God. 

Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.

Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless  this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name. 

Father will now incense the gifts and the altar.

Lavabo

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice, and then says in Latin:

Ps. 25. 6-12

I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

“This majestic prayer of offering to the Most Holy Trinity states in detail the particular purpose for which the holy Sacrifice is offered.”1

Father is in the center

Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

The Orate Fratres

The priest kisses the altar and turns towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, and say audibly “Orate fratres.” He then turns back to the altar and continues silently in Latin:

P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty. 

The MC answers on our behalf in Latin:

S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.  

The priest answers in a low voice:

P. Amen. 

Secret 

This prayer is one of the variable parts of the Mass, called the propers, which changes based on the Mass being celebrated and is prayed silently. It is “the completion of the Offertory and introduces the actual oblation of the Sacrifice in the great prayer of the Canon”1 of the Mass.

We offer these sacrificial gifts at the beginning of Lent, praying You, O Lord, that while we practice restraint in the use of bodily food, we may also refrain from harmful pleasures.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Preface 

STAND
The priest begins the Preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with important Feasts.
You may respond with the MC and schola the following:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spíritu tuo.

P. Sursum corda.

S. Habémus ad Dóminum.

P. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.

S. Dignum et justum est.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Lift up your hearts. 

S. We have lifted them up to the Lord. 

P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

S. It is right and just. 

The particular Preface changes for certain Masses, with the Preface of the Holy Trinity used on most Sundays.  Lent has its own, proper preface.

Lent
It is 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 by this bodily fast, dost curb our vices, dost lift up our minds and bestow on us strength and rewards; through Christ our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with these we entreat Thee that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted while we say with lowly praise:

Sanctus

Immediately at the conclusion of the Preface the priest begins the Sanctus and the bells are rung three times.
The schola will also chant the Sanctus, which you may join if you wish. It is customary to Cross yourself at the Benedictus.
KNEEL

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

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest!  Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! 

Canon 

The Canon of the Mass is made up of the fixed forms of the prayers from the Sanctus to the Pater Noster. It is said silently by the priest.

Prayers for the Church

We therefore, humbly pray and beseech Thee, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ; Thy Son, our Lord, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to accept and bless. these  gifts, these  presents, these  holy unspotted Sacrifices, which in the first place we offer Thee for Thy holy Catholic Church to which vouchsafe to grant peace, as also to preserve, unite, and govern it throughout the world, together with Thy servant N. our Pope, and N. our Bishop, and all orthodox believers and professors of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith. 

Commemoration of the Living

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants and handmaidens, N. et N. and of all here present, whose faith and devotion are known unto Thee, for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves, their families and friends, for the redemption of their souls, for the health and salvation they hope for; and who now pay their vows to Thee, the everlasting, living and true God. 

We pray in union with and honor the memory, especially of the glorious ever Virgin Mary, mother of our God and Lord Jesus Christ: as also of the blessed Joseph, her Spouse, and of the blessed Apostles and Martyrs Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and of all Thy Saints, through whose merits and prayers, grant that we may in all things be defended by the help of Thy protection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Prayers at the Consecration

Spreading his hands over the oblation, the bells are rung one time to signal that the Consecration is approaching and the priest says in Latin:

We therefore beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this oblation of our service, as also of Thy whole family; and to dispose our days in Thy peace, preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of Thine Elect. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all respects, to bless,  approve,  ratify,  make worthy and acceptable; that it may be made for us the Body  and Blood  of Thy most beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Consecration of the Host

Who, the day before He suffered, took bread into His holy and venerable hands, and with His eyes lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed  it, broke it and gave it to His disciples saying: Take and eat ye all of this, 

The words of the Consecration of the Host:

FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

After pronouncing the words of the Consecration, the priest, kneeling, adores the Sacred Host; rising, he elevates It, then placing It on the corporal, again adores It. After this he never disjoins his fingers and thumbs, except when he is to take the Host, until after the washing of his fingers during the ablutions.
You may wish to look up at the Sacred Host, with faith, piety, and love, saying to yourself: MY LORD and MY GOD!

Consecration of the Wine

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands He blessed  , and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this,  

The words of Consecration of the Chalice:

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT, THE MYSTERY OF FAITH; WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

The priest kneels and adores the Precious Blood; rising, he elevates the Chalice, and setting it down he covers it and adores it again. 
You may wish to look up at the Chalice and say to yourself something such as: BE MINDFUL O LORD, OF THY CREATURE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED BY THY PRECIOUS BLOOD!
After the elevation of the Chalice, the priest says in a low voice in Latin:

As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in remembrance of Me.

Prayers After Consecration

The priest continues silently in Latin:

Wherefore, O Lord, we Thy servants, as also Thy holy people, calling to mind the blessed Passion of the same Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, and also His Resurrection from the dead and His glorious Ascension into heaven: do offer unto Thy most excellent Majesty of Thine own gifts, bestowed upon us, a pure  Victim, a holy  Victim, an unspotted  Victim, the holy  Bread of eternal life, and the Chalice ☩ of everlasting salvation. 

Upon which vouchsafe to look with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou wert graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our patriarch Abraham, and that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim.

We most humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine majesty, that as many as shall partake of the most holy Body  and Blood  of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Commemoration of the Dead

Remember also, O Lord, Thy servants and handmaids N. and N., who are gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace; Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The priest says the first words, “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in a somewhat elevated tone of voice, to symbolize an act of public self-humiliation; at the same time he strikes his breast in a token of contrition.

To us also, Thy sinful servants, confiding in the multitude of Thy mercies, vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with Thy holy Apostles and Martyrs, with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia, and with all Thy Saints, into whose company we beseech Thee to admit us, not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses. Through Christ our Lord. 

By Whom, O Lord, Thou dost ever create, sanctify,  quicken,  bless,  and give unto us all these good things. 

He uncovers the Chalice, and genuflects: then taking the Host in his right hand, and holding the Chalice in his left, he signs with the Sign of the Cross five times across the Chalice, saying:

By Him,  and with Him,  and in Him  is to Thee, God the Father  almighty, in the unity of the Holy  Ghost, all honor and glory. 

Replacing the Host, and covering the Chalice, he kneels down, and rising again, he says in Latin:

P. Per omnia secula saecolorum.

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

Pater Noster 

In the Extraordinary Form, the priest alone says the Our Father.
You may, however, join the schola and MC in chanting the “Sed libera nos a malo” response.
STAND

Oremus: etc.

Let us pray. Instructed by Thy saving precepts, and following Thy divine institution, we are bold to say: 

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: 

S. Sed libera nos a malo. 

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. 

S. But deliver us from evil.

P. Amen.   

The priest continues silently in Latin: 

Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may be always free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. 

Who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth God,

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

KNEEL

P. Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The peace  of the Lord be  always with  you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

He puts a Particle of the Sacred Host into the Chalice, saying in Latin:

May this mixture and consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ be to us who receive it effectual unto eternal life. Amen. 

Agnus Dei

He covers the Chalice, genuflects and rises; then bowing down and striking his breast thrice, he says the Angus Dei.
You may join the schola in chanting the Agnus Dei if you wish.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast grant us peace. 

Prayers for Holy Communion

With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers in Latin:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen. 

Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

Communion of the Priest

The priest genuflects, rises and says in Latin:

I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord. 

Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says in Latin “Domine, non sum dignus…” three times devoutly and humbly while the bells are rung:

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time. Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:

What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 

After the priest consumes the Host, the servers move to the credence table to put away the bells and retrieve the patens they will use during the distribution of Communion.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:

The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Holy Communion

In many places there is often no longer an additional Confiteor immediately before Communion, however it is still a pious custom of many of the faithful to pray it quietly on their own even if the altar boys or sacred ministers do not recite it.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon me, forgive me my sins, and bring me unto life everlasting. Amen. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant me pardon, absolution, and remission of my sins. Amen. 

Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:

Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccáta mundi. 

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world. 

And then he says three times in Latin the following. 
In some places it is a custom for the congregation, even at a Low Mass, to quietly pray these words in Latin outloud:

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.  

If you will be receiving Communion, now is typically an appropriate time to get up and go to the altar rail.
Note: In the Extraordinary Form, Communion is received on the tongue while kneeling (if there are no physical impediments) at the altar rail.

You do not say “Amen”, the priest says it at the end of the prayer. 
The priest, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host, says the following prayer as he administers Holy Communion to you: 

P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.

Ablutions

Father is in the center

After Communion, the priest returns to the altar and says silently:

Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy. 

Then he holds out the Chalice to the server who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:

May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution at the right side of the altar. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass.

Communion and Post Communion Verses

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Communion and Post Communion verses are the final two propers, or variable parts, of the Mass. The priest goes to the Missal on the epistle side and says the Communion verse. (The schola will have already chanted this prayer.)

Ps 90:4-5
With His pinions the Lord will cover you, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His faithfulness is a buckler and a shield.

Father returns to the middle, kisses the altar and the returns to the epistle side where he chants the Post Communion.
STAND

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Oremus

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

May the holy offering of Your sacrament renew us, O Lord, and cause us to be purified from our old ways and come to the fellowship of this saving mystery.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Conclusion 

Father is in the center

The priest turns to the people and chants: 

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Ite Missa est.

S. Deo Gratias.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Go, the Mass is ended.

S. Thanks be to God.

KNEEL
The priest turns back to the altar and says silently in Latin:

May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He kisses the altar, turns to the people and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:

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

S. Amen. 

Last Gospel

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Then turning to the gospel-side of the altar, the priest says:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

This Gospel is recited at the end of most Masses. In it “St. John declares that Christ, the Word made Flesh, is the source of life on earth, the light in the darkness, and the love that will last forever.”1 The priest traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:

The beginning  of the holy Gospel according to John. 

S. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

John. 1, 1-14. 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he was to testify concerning the Light. 

That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

Here all kneel. And the Word was made flesh, Rise  

and dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

R. Thanks be to God.

After the Last Gospel there are no Leonine prayers as at a Low Mass.

Recessional

STAND
After Mass, and after the conclusion of the recessional hymn, it is customary for the faithful to kneel for a moment in thanksgiving for the Holy Mass just offered. You may wish to add prayers of thanksgiving for the priest who celebrated the Mass; your parish and bishop; holy priests, religious and faithful persecuted for their fidelity; and for the great gift of Summorum Pontificum, which Pope Benedict XVI gave us in 2007.

Quinquagesima Sunday High Mass

Welcome to Phone Missal! The beta version of the site was rushed out in order to provide the faithful, especially those still learning the Extraordinary Form Mass, with a resource to use since so many parishes are unable to have pew missals or other handouts due to the virus.

Explanations as to what the priest and servers are doing and where they are standing are provided to help you follow along. The instructions in red text are generally based on local customs at our local parish in our diocese. But they are just suggestions as there are no hard and fast rules for the congregation. The church where you attend Mass may have slightly different customs. You should follow those.

Note: The altar boys and schola generally make the responses on your behalf in the Extraordinary Form High Mass, but the congregation may join in singing some of the prayers with the schola. Those are noted below. But as at a Low Mass, you are always free to simply pray quietly to yourself. (With the caveat about local customs noted above.)

Please provide us with your feedback to help us make this a more useful resource for you. Thank you and may God bless you!

A High Mass (also known as a sung Mass or a Missa cantata) is typically celebrated with a priest, a master of ceremonies (MC), a thurifer, two acolytes, a crucifer, and up to six torchbearers. There will be six candles lit on the altar. The Missal will be open on the stand on the right-side (known as the Epistle side) of the altar.
High Mass notes: One difference from the Ordinary Form that you will notice is that prayers and actions often happen in parallel in the Extraordinary Form. In the OF, things always happen sequentially. For instance, the schola may chant the Introit during the procession or as the priest and servers are praying the prayers at the foot of the altar. This can be confusing at first, but over time you will become accustomed to this.

Asperges

On Sundays only, the Asperges may take place immediately after the procession and before the prayers at the foot of the altar.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Father is in the center

The priest, after processing in and genuflecting to the Tabernacle with the servers, waits for the MC to take his biretta to the sedilia (which is Latin for chairs) and return. Bowing down, he makes the Sign of the Cross while the MC, other servers and faithful kneel, and says in Latin: 
KNEEL

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,  and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God.

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.

The priest alternates with the MC in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.

Ps. 42, 1-5. 

P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles. 

S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth. 

P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me? 

S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God. 

P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 

S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

The priest repeats the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God. 

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth. 

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says in Latin:

P. Our help  is in the Name of the Lord. 

S. Who made heaven and earth. 

Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor in Latin:

P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

The priest answers: 

P. Amen.

The MC says the Confiteor in Latin. You may wish to pray these words silently to yourself in either Latin or English. It would be appropriate to bow your head slightly as you pray this since it is a penitential prayer.

S. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

Then the priest, with his hands joined, says in Latin:

P. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

S. Amen.

The MC (and you if you wish) make the Sign of the Cross, with the priest saying in Latin:

P. May the  almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.

S. Amen. 

Bowing down, the priest proceeds in Latin:

P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us. 

S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee. 

P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. 

S. And grant us Thy salvation. 

P. O Lord, hear my prayer. 

S. And let my cry come before Thee. 

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

The priest extends then joins his hands and, after audibly saying “Oremus” (“Let us pray”), he ascends to the altar while saying the following prayer silently in Latin.

Let us pray. 

Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

His hands joined, and bowing down over the middle of the altar, the priest says:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

At the conclusion of these prayers and prior to the Introit, the priest, accompanied by the MC and thurifer, will incense the altar for the first time. After the incensation of the altar is complete, the MC will incense the priest.

Introit 

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

Moving to the Epistle-side (the right side) of the altar, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross and reads the Introit in Latin. The Introit is chanted by the schola, but as noted above, they may have already chanted this during the procession, the prayers at the foot of the altar or during the incensation. The Introit is the first of the variable texts, called “the propers,” that change depending on the Mass of the day.

Ps 30:3-4
Be my rock of refuge, O God, a stronghold to give me safety. You are my rock and my fortress; for Your name’s sake You will lead and guide me.
Ps 30:2
In You, O Lord, I take refuge; let me never be put to shame. In Your justice rescue me and deliver me.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Be my rock of refuge, O God, a stronghold to give me safety. You are my rock and my fortress; for Your name’s sake You will lead and guide me.hy do You hide Your face, forgetting our oppression? Our bodies are pressed to the earth. Arise, O Lord, help us, and deliver us.

Kyrie 

Father is in the center

At a sung Mass, the schola will chant the Kyrie, but this may happen before or as the priest says the words. You may chant the Kyrie with the schola if you wish.
The priest moves to the middle and alternates with the MC saying the only Greek words in the Mass:

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Christe, eléison. 
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

S. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

Gloria 

The Gloria is omitted in Septuagesima.
Then the priest turns to the people and sings:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The Lord be with you.

S. And with thy spirit.

 Collect 

STAND

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Collect is the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. It changes with each Mass. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
The priest returns to the Epistle-side of the altar and chants the Collect in Latin:

P. Oremus.

P. Let us pray.

O Lord, we beseech You, mercifully hear our prayers; loose us from the chains of our sins and keep us from all adversity.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The Epistle, Gradual and Tract

SIT
The Epistle, or lesson, is like the second reading in the Ordinary Form in that it is frequently (though certainly not always) from St. Paul. Along with the Gradual and Tract (which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons), the Epistle changes depending on the Mass of the day.
After chanting the Collect, the priest will also chant the Epistle.
Epistle

Lesson from the first letter of St. Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians
1 Cor. 13:1-13
Brethren: If I should speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have charity, I have become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, yet do not have charity, I am nothing. And if I distribute all my goods to feed the poor, and if I deliver my body to be burned, yet do not have charity, it profits me nothing. Charity is patient, is kind; charity does not envy, is not pretentious, is not puffed up, is not ambitious, is not self-seeking, is not provoked; thinks no evil, does not rejoice over wickedness, but rejoices with the truth; bears with all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Charity never fails, whereas prophecies will disappear, and tongues will cease, and knowledge will be destroyed. For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when that which is perfect has come, that which is imperfect will be done away with. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child. Now that I have become a man, I have put away the things of a child. We see now through a mirror in an obscure manner, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know even as I have been known. So there abide faith, hope and charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

S. Thanks be to God.

After the Epistle is finished, Father will place his left hand on the altar and the MC responds “Deo gratias.”
Father will now quietly say and the schola will chant the Gradual and Alleluia (or the Tract which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons). If the chants will be lengthy, the MC may lead Father to the sedilia to sit until they are nearly finished.
Gradual and Tract

Ps 76:15-16
You are the God Who alone works wonders; among the peoples You have made known Your power.
V. With Your strong arm You delivered Your people, the sons of Israel and Joseph.

Tract
Ps 99:1-2
Sing joyfully to God, all you lands; serve the Lord with gladness.
V. Come before Him with joyful song; know that the Lord is God.
V. He made us, His we are; His people, the flock He tends.

When the Tract is nearly finished, the MC will lead Father back to the altar to meet the thurifer if he was sitting. Father will impose incense and then say the prayers below.
The thurifer, the MC with the Missal and the two Acolytes with candles will meet in the middle and begin a procession to the Gospel-side of the altar, where Father will proclaim the Gospel.

Munda Cor Meum

Father is in the center

As the server transfers the Missal to the Gospel-side of the altar, the priest moves to the middle of the altar and bowing down says in Latin:

Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen. 

Gospel 

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Except for Solemn Mass, when he will remain in the middle, the priest moves from the middle to the left side of the altar, and begins in Latin:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Continuation ✠ of the Holy Gospel according to Luke
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Luke 18:31-43
At that time, Jesus taking to Himself the Twelve said to them, Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and all things that have been written by the prophets concerning the Son of Man will be accomplished. For He will be delivered to the Gentiles, and will be mocked and scourged and spit upon; and after they have scourged Him, they will put Him to death; and on the third day He will rise again. And they understood none of these things and this saying was hidden from them, neither did they get to know the things that were being said. Now it came to pass as He drew near to Jericho, that a certain blind man was sitting by the wayside, begging; but hearing a crowd passing by, he inquired what this might be. And they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by. And he cried out, saying, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me! And they who went in front angrily tried to silence him. But he cried out all the louder, Son of David, have mercy on me! Then Jesus stopped and commanded that he should be brought to Him. And when he drew near, He asked him, saying, What would you have Me do for you? And he said, Lord, that I may see. And Jesus said to him, Receive your sight, your faith has saved you. And at once he received his sight, and followed Him, glorifying God. And all the people upon seeing it gave praise to God.

At the conclusion of the Gospel…

S. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

P. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Sermon

SIT
After the Gospel, if there is to be a sermon, the priest will return to the middle of the altar and remove his maniple, which signifies that there is a pause in the celebration of the Mass. The MC, thurifer and acolytes will also move to the middle, genuflect and then take a seat at the sedilia (chairs) in the sanctuary. After the sermon, the priest will return and put the maniple back on his arm and then continue as below.

Creed 

Father is in the center

On Sundays and certain Feasts the priest recites the Creed, a summary of the Catholic Doctrine. This profession of faith was drawn up in the General Councils of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381 to condemn heretics who denied that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost  are God.
As with the Gloria, Father will intone the first words of the Credo and then the schola will continue with the chant while the priest says the rest quietly. Often the MC will lead Father to the sedilia to sit when the schola finishes.
You may chant the Credo with the schola if you wish.
STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et in visibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Bow head Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de coelis. 

Here kneel down. Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Rise. 

Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. 

Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio Bow head simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri saeculi. Amen.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things, visible and invisible. And in one Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. And born of the Father, before all ages. God of God: Light of Light: true God of true God. Begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven. 

Here kneel down. And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. Rise.

He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, of whose kingdom there shall be no end. 

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son. Who together, with the Father and the Son, is Bow head adored and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets. And in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead. And the life  of the world to come. Amen. 

Offertory 

The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says in Latin:

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

SIT
Then the priest says and the schola chants the Offertory verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. 

Ps 118:12-13
Blessed are You, O Lord; teach me Your statutes. With my lips I declare all the ordinances of Your mouth.

This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says in Latin:

Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier’s lance.

O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen. 

 We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen. 

Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God. 

Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.

Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless  this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name. 

Father will now incense the gifts and the altar.

Lavabo

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice, and then says in Latin:

Ps. 25. 6-12

I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

“This majestic prayer of offering to the Most Holy Trinity states in detail the particular purpose for which the holy Sacrifice is offered.”1

Father is in the center

Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

The Orate Fratres

The priest kisses the altar and turns towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, and say audibly “Orate fratres.” He then turns back to the altar and continues silently in Latin:

P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty. 

The MC answers on our behalf in Latin:

S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.  

The priest answers in a low voice:

P. Amen. 

Secret 

This prayer is one of the variable parts of the Mass, called the propers, which changes based on the Mass being celebrated and is prayed silently. It is “the completion of the Offertory and introduces the actual oblation of the Sacrifice in the great prayer of the Canon”1 of the Mass.

May these offerings, O Lord, we beseech You, wash away our sins; may it sanctify the bodies and souls of Your servants for the celebration of this sacrifice.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Preface 

STAND
The priest begins the Preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with important Feasts.
You may respond with the MC and schola the following:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spíritu tuo.

P. Sursum corda.

S. Habémus ad Dóminum.

P. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.

S. Dignum et justum est.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Lift up your hearts. 

S. We have lifted them up to the Lord. 

P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

S. It is right and just. 

The particular Preface changes for certain Masses, with the Preface of the Holy Trinity used on most Sundays. 

It is 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:

Sanctus

Immediately at the conclusion of the Preface the priest begins the Sanctus and the bells are rung three times.
The schola will also chant the Sanctus, which you may join if you wish. It is customary to Cross yourself at the Benedictus.
KNEEL

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

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest!  Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! 

Canon 

The Canon of the Mass is made up of the fixed forms of the prayers from the Sanctus to the Pater Noster. It is said silently by the priest.

Prayers for the Church

We therefore, humbly pray and beseech Thee, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ; Thy Son, our Lord, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to accept and bless. these  gifts, these  presents, these  holy unspotted Sacrifices, which in the first place we offer Thee for Thy holy Catholic Church to which vouchsafe to grant peace, as also to preserve, unite, and govern it throughout the world, together with Thy servant N. our Pope, and N. our Bishop, and all orthodox believers and professors of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith. 

Commemoration of the Living

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants and handmaidens, N. et N. and of all here present, whose faith and devotion are known unto Thee, for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves, their families and friends, for the redemption of their souls, for the health and salvation they hope for; and who now pay their vows to Thee, the everlasting, living and true God. 

We pray in union with and honor the memory, especially of the glorious ever Virgin Mary, mother of our God and Lord Jesus Christ: as also of the blessed Joseph, her Spouse, and of the blessed Apostles and Martyrs Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and of all Thy Saints, through whose merits and prayers, grant that we may in all things be defended by the help of Thy protection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Prayers at the Consecration

Spreading his hands over the oblation, the bells are rung one time to signal that the Consecration is approaching and the priest says in Latin:

We therefore beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this oblation of our service, as also of Thy whole family; and to dispose our days in Thy peace, preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of Thine Elect. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all respects, to bless,  approve,  ratify,  make worthy and acceptable; that it may be made for us the Body  and Blood  of Thy most beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Consecration of the Host

Who, the day before He suffered, took bread into His holy and venerable hands, and with His eyes lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed  it, broke it and gave it to His disciples saying: Take and eat ye all of this, 

The words of the Consecration of the Host:

FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

After pronouncing the words of the Consecration, the priest, kneeling, adores the Sacred Host; rising, he elevates It, then placing It on the corporal, again adores It. After this he never disjoins his fingers and thumbs, except when he is to take the Host, until after the washing of his fingers during the ablutions.
You may wish to look up at the Sacred Host, with faith, piety, and love, saying to yourself: MY LORD and MY GOD!

Consecration of the Wine

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands He blessed  , and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this,  

The words of Consecration of the Chalice:

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT, THE MYSTERY OF FAITH; WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

The priest kneels and adores the Precious Blood; rising, he elevates the Chalice, and setting it down he covers it and adores it again. 
You may wish to look up at the Chalice and say to yourself something such as: BE MINDFUL O LORD, OF THY CREATURE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED BY THY PRECIOUS BLOOD!
After the elevation of the Chalice, the priest says in a low voice in Latin:

As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in remembrance of Me.

Prayers After Consecration

The priest continues silently in Latin:

Wherefore, O Lord, we Thy servants, as also Thy holy people, calling to mind the blessed Passion of the same Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, and also His Resurrection from the dead and His glorious Ascension into heaven: do offer unto Thy most excellent Majesty of Thine own gifts, bestowed upon us, a pure  Victim, a holy  Victim, an unspotted  Victim, the holy  Bread of eternal life, and the Chalice ☩ of everlasting salvation. 

Upon which vouchsafe to look with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou wert graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our patriarch Abraham, and that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim.

We most humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine majesty, that as many as shall partake of the most holy Body  and Blood  of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Commemoration of the Dead

Remember also, O Lord, Thy servants and handmaids N. and N., who are gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace; Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The priest says the first words, “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in a somewhat elevated tone of voice, to symbolize an act of public self-humiliation; at the same time he strikes his breast in a token of contrition.

To us also, Thy sinful servants, confiding in the multitude of Thy mercies, vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with Thy holy Apostles and Martyrs, with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia, and with all Thy Saints, into whose company we beseech Thee to admit us, not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses. Through Christ our Lord. 

By Whom, O Lord, Thou dost ever create, sanctify,  quicken,  bless,  and give unto us all these good things. 

He uncovers the Chalice, and genuflects: then taking the Host in his right hand, and holding the Chalice in his left, he signs with the Sign of the Cross five times across the Chalice, saying:

By Him,  and with Him,  and in Him  is to Thee, God the Father  almighty, in the unity of the Holy  Ghost, all honor and glory. 

Replacing the Host, and covering the Chalice, he kneels down, and rising again, he says in Latin:

P. Per omnia secula saecolorum.

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

Pater Noster 

In the Extraordinary Form, the priest alone says the Our Father.
You may, however, join the schola and MC in chanting the “Sed libera nos a malo” response.
STAND

Oremus: etc.

Let us pray. Instructed by Thy saving precepts, and following Thy divine institution, we are bold to say: 

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: 

S. Sed libera nos a malo. 

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. 

S. But deliver us from evil.

P. Amen.   

The priest continues silently in Latin: 

Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may be always free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. 

Who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth God,

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

KNEEL

P. Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The peace  of the Lord be  always with  you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

He puts a Particle of the Sacred Host into the Chalice, saying in Latin:

May this mixture and consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ be to us who receive it effectual unto eternal life. Amen. 

Agnus Dei

He covers the Chalice, genuflects and rises; then bowing down and striking his breast thrice, he says the Angus Dei.
You may join the schola in chanting the Agnus Dei if you wish.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast grant us peace. 

Prayers for Holy Communion

With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers in Latin:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen. 

Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

Communion of the Priest

The priest genuflects, rises and says in Latin:

I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord. 

Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says in Latin “Domine, non sum dignus…” three times devoutly and humbly while the bells are rung:

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time. Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:

What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 

After the priest consumes the Host, the servers move to the credence table to put away the bells and retrieve the patens they will use during the distribution of Communion.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:

The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Holy Communion

In many places there is often no longer an additional Confiteor immediately before Communion, however it is still a pious custom of many of the faithful to pray it quietly on their own even if the altar boys or sacred ministers do not recite it.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon me, forgive me my sins, and bring me unto life everlasting. Amen. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant me pardon, absolution, and remission of my sins. Amen. 

Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:

Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccáta mundi. 

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world. 

And then he says three times in Latin the following. 
In some places it is a custom for the congregation, even at a Low Mass, to quietly pray these words in Latin outloud:

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.  

If you will be receiving Communion, now is typically an appropriate time to get up and go to the altar rail.
Note: In the Extraordinary Form, Communion is received on the tongue while kneeling (if there are no physical impediments) at the altar rail.

You do not say “Amen”, the priest says it at the end of the prayer. 
The priest, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host, says the following prayer as he administers Holy Communion to you: 

P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.

Ablutions

Father is in the center

After Communion, the priest returns to the altar and says silently:

Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy. 

Then he holds out the Chalice to the server who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:

May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution at the right side of the altar. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass.

Communion and Post Communion Verses

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Communion and Post Communion verses are the final two propers, or variable parts, of the Mass. The priest goes to the Missal on the epistle side and says the Communion verse. (The schola will have already chanted this prayer.)

Ps 77:29-30
They ate and were wholly surfeited; the Lord had brought them what they craved: they were not defrauded of that which they craved.

Father returns to the middle, kisses the altar and the returns to the epistle side where he chants the Post Communion.
STAND

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Oremus

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

We beseech You, almighty God, that we who have received the Bread of heaven, may by it be protected from all adversity.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Conclusion 

Father is in the center

The priest turns to the people and chants: 

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Ite Missa est.

S. Deo Gratias.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Go, the Mass is ended.

S. Thanks be to God.

KNEEL
The priest turns back to the altar and says silently in Latin:

May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He kisses the altar, turns to the people and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:

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

S. Amen. 

Last Gospel

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Then turning to the gospel-side of the altar, the priest says:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

This Gospel is recited at the end of most Masses. In it “St. John declares that Christ, the Word made Flesh, is the source of life on earth, the light in the darkness, and the love that will last forever.”1 The priest traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:

The beginning  of the holy Gospel according to John. 

S. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

John. 1, 1-14. 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he was to testify concerning the Light. 

That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

Here all kneel. And the Word was made flesh, Rise  

and dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

R. Thanks be to God.

After the Last Gospel there are no Leonine prayers as at a Low Mass.

Recessional

STAND
After Mass, and after the conclusion of the recessional hymn, it is customary for the faithful to kneel for a moment in thanksgiving for the Holy Mass just offered. You may wish to add prayers of thanksgiving for the priest who celebrated the Mass; your parish and bishop; holy priests, religious and faithful persecuted for their fidelity; and for the great gift of Summorum Pontificum, which Pope Benedict XVI gave us in 2007.

1 “Latin-English Booklet Missal,” Coalition in Support of Ecclesia Dei, Fourth Edition, 2008.

Sexagesima Sunday High Mass

Welcome to Phone Missal! The beta version of the site was rushed out in order to provide the faithful, especially those still learning the Extraordinary Form Mass, with a resource to use since so many parishes are unable to have pew missals or other handouts due to the virus.

Explanations as to what the priest and servers are doing and where they are standing are provided to help you follow along. The instructions in red text are generally based on local customs at our local parish in our diocese. But they are just suggestions as there are no hard and fast rules for the congregation. The church where you attend Mass may have slightly different customs. You should follow those.

Note: The altar boys and schola generally make the responses on your behalf in the Extraordinary Form High Mass, but the congregation may join in singing some of the prayers with the schola. Those are noted below. But as at a Low Mass, you are always free to simply pray quietly to yourself. (With the caveat about local customs noted above.)

Please provide us with your feedback to help us make this a more useful resource for you. Thank you and may God bless you!

A High Mass (also known as a sung Mass or a Missa cantata) is typically celebrated with a priest, a master of ceremonies (MC), a thurifer, two acolytes, a crucifer, and up to six torchbearers. There will be six candles lit on the altar. The Missal will be open on the stand on the right-side (known as the Epistle side) of the altar.
High Mass notes: One difference from the Ordinary Form that you will notice is that prayers and actions often happen in parallel in the Extraordinary Form. In the OF, things always happen sequentially. For instance, the schola may chant the Introit during the procession or as the priest and servers are praying the prayers at the foot of the altar. This can be confusing at first, but over time you will become accustomed to this.

Asperges

On Sundays only, the Asperges may take place immediately after the procession and before the prayers at the foot of the altar.

Prayers at the Foot of the Altar

Father is in the center

The priest, after processing in and genuflecting to the Tabernacle with the servers, waits for the MC to take his biretta to the sedilia (which is Latin for chairs) and return. Bowing down, he makes the Sign of the Cross while the MC, other servers and faithful kneel, and says in Latin: 
KNEEL

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,  and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Then joining his hands before his breast, he begins the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God.

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth.

The priest alternates with the MC in reciting this psalm to express his desire, joy and confidence in going to the altar of the Sacrifice.

Ps. 42, 1-5. 

P. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation which is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.

S. For Thou, O God, art my strength: why hast Thou cast me off? and why go I sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?

P. Send forth Thy light and Thy truth: they have conducted me and brought me unto Thy holy mount, and into Thy tabernacles. 

S. And I will go into the altar of God: to God who giveth joy to my youth. 

P. To Thee, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp; why art thou sad, O my soul, and why dost thou disquiet me? 

S. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to Him: the salvation of my countenance and my God. 

P. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. 

S. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. 

The priest repeats the Anthem in Latin:

P. I will go in unto the altar of God. 

S. To God who giveth joy to my youth. 

The priest, signing himself with the Sign of the Cross, says in Latin:

P. Our help  is in the Name of the Lord. 

S. Who made heaven and earth. 

Then, joining his hands, and humbly bowing down, he says the Confiteor in Latin:

P. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, brothers, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Here he strikes his breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, brothers, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

S. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

The priest answers: 

P. Amen.

The MC says the Confiteor in Latin. You may wish to pray these words silently to yourself in either Latin or English. It would be appropriate to bow your head slightly as you pray this since it is a penitential prayer.

S. Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

S. I confess to almighty God, to the blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. 

Then the priest, with his hands joined, says in Latin:

P. May almighty God be merciful to thee, and forgiving thy sins, bring thee to everlasting life. 

S. Amen.

The MC (and you if you wish) make the Sign of the Cross, with the priest saying in Latin:

P. May the  almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins.

S. Amen. 

Bowing down, the priest proceeds in Latin:

P. O God, Thou wilt turn again and quicken us. 

S. And thy people shall rejoice in Thee. 

P. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy. 

S. And grant us Thy salvation. 

P. O Lord, hear my prayer. 

S. And let my cry come before Thee. 

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

The priest extends then joins his hands and, after audibly saying “Oremus” (“Let us pray”), he ascends to the altar while saying the following prayer silently in Latin.

Let us pray. 

Take away from us our iniquities, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may be worthy to enter with pure minds into the Holy of Holies. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

His hands joined, and bowing down over the middle of the altar, the priest says:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, by the merits of Thy Saints, whose relics are here, and of all the Saints, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to forgive me all my sins. Amen.

At the conclusion of these prayers and prior to the Introit, the priest, accompanied by the MC and thurifer, will incense the altar for the first time. After the incensation of the altar is complete, the MC will incense the priest.

Introit 

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

Moving to the Epistle-side (the right side) of the altar, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross and reads the Introit in Latin. The Introit is chanted by the schola, but as noted above, they may have already chanted this during the procession, the prayers at the foot of the altar or during the incensation. The Introit is the first of the variable texts, called “the propers,” that change depending on the Mass of the day.

Ps 43:23-26
Awake! Why are You asleep, O Lord? Arise! Cast us not off forever! Why do You hide Your face, forgetting our oppression? Our bodies are pressed to the earth. Arise, O Lord, help us, and deliver us.
Ps 43:2
O God, our ears have heard, our fathers have declared to us.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Awake! Why are You asleep, O Lord? Arise! Cast us not off forever! Why do You hide Your face, forgetting our oppression? Our bodies are pressed to the earth. Arise, O Lord, help us, and deliver us.

Kyrie 

Father is in the center

At a sung Mass, the schola will chant the Kyrie, but this may happen before or as the priest says the words. You may chant the Kyrie with the schola if you wish.
The priest moves to the middle and alternates with the MC saying the only Greek words in the Mass:

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Christe, eléison. 
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

S. Christe, eléison.
(Christ, have mercy)

P. Kýrie, eléison. 
(Lord, have mercy.)

S. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

P. Kýrie, eléison.
(Lord, have mercy.)

Gloria 

The Gloria is omitted in Septuagesima.
Then the priest turns to the people and sings:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The Lord be with you.

S. And with thy spirit.

 Collect 

STAND

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Collect is the collected prayers of all the faithful assisting at the Holy Sacrifice. It changes with each Mass. Raising his voice, his hands, and his sentiments to God, the priest excites the faithful to unite their prayers with his.
The priest returns to the Epistle-side of the altar and chants the Collect in Latin:

P. Oremus.

P. Let us pray.

O God, You Who see that we put no trust in anything we do, mercifully grant that by the protection of the Doctor of the Gentiles we may be defended against all adversity.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

The Epistle, Gradual and Tract

SIT
The Epistle, or lesson, is like the second reading in the Ordinary Form in that it is frequently (though certainly not always) from St. Paul. Along with the Gradual and Tract (which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons), the Epistle changes depending on the Mass of the day.
After chanting the Collect, the priest will also chant the Epistle.
Epistle

Lesson from the second letter of St. Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians
2 Cor. 11:19-33; 12:1-9
Brethren: You gladly put up with fools, because you are wise yourselves! For you suffer it if a man enslaves you, if a man devours you, if a man takes from you, if a man is arrogant, if a man slaps your face! I speak to my own shame, as though we had been weak. But wherein any man is bold – I am speaking foolishly – I also am bold. Are they Hebrews? So am I! Are they Israelites? So am I! Are they offspring of Abraham? So am I! Are they ministers of Christ? I – to speak as a fool – am more: in many more labors, in prisons more frequently, in lashes above measure, often exposed to death. From the Jews five times I received forty lashes less one. Thrice I was scourged, once I was stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I was adrift on the sea; in journeyings often, in perils from floods, in perils from robbers, in perils from my own nation, in perils from the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils from false brethren; in labor and hardships, in many sleepless nights, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. Besides those outer things, there is my daily pressing anxiety, the care of all the churches! Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to stumble, and I am not inflamed? If I must boast, I will boast of the things that concern my weakness. The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, Who is blessed forevermore, knows that I do not lie. In Damascus the governor under King Aretas was guarding the city of the Damascenes in order to arrest me, but I was lowered in a basket through a window in the wall, and escaped his hands. If I must boast – it is not indeed expedient to do so – but I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago – whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows – such a one was caught up to the third heaven. And I know such a man – whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows that he was caught up into paradise and heard secret words that man may not repeat. Of such a man I will boast; but of myself I will glory in nothing save in my infirmities. For if I do wish to boast, I shall not be foolish; for I shall be speaking the truth. But I forbear, lest any man should reckon me beyond what he sees in me or hears from me. And lest the greatness of the revelations should puff me up, there was given me a thorn for the flesh, a messenger of Satan, to buffet me. Concerning this I thrice besought the Lord that it might leave me. And He has said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for strength is made perfect in weakness. Gladly therefore I will glory in my infirmities, that the strength of Christ may dwell in me.

S. Thanks be to God.

After the Epistle is finished, Father will place his left hand on the altar and the MC responds “Deo gratias.”
Father will now quietly say and the schola will chant the Gradual and Alleluia (or the Tract which replaces the Alleluia in penitential seasons). If the chants will be lengthy, the MC may lead Father to the sedilia to sit until they are nearly finished.
Gradual and Tract

Ps 82:19; 82:14
Let the nations know that God is Your name; You alone are the Most High over all the earth.
V. O my God, make them like leaves in a whirlwind, like chaff before the wind.

Tract
Ps 59:4,6
You have rocked the country, O Lord, and split it open.
V. Repair the cracks in it, for it is tottering.
V. That they may flee out of bowshot; that Your loved ones may escape.

When the Tract is nearly finished, the MC will lead Father back to the altar to meet the thurifer if he was sitting. Father will impose incense and then say the prayers below.
The thurifer, the MC with the Missal and the two Acolytes with candles will meet in the middle and begin a procession to the Gospel-side of the altar, where Father will proclaim the Gospel.

Munda Cor Meum

Father is in the center

As the server transfers the Missal to the Gospel-side of the altar, the priest moves to the middle of the altar and bowing down says in Latin:

Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen. 

Gospel 

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Except for Solemn Mass, when he will remain in the middle, the priest moves from the middle to the left side of the altar, and begins in Latin:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Continuation ✠ of the Holy Gospel according to Luke
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Luke 8:4-15
At that time, when a very great crowd was gathering together and men from every town were resorting to Jesus. He said in a parable: The sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside and was trodden under foot, and the birds of the air ate it up. And other seed fell upon the rock, and as soon as it had sprung up it withered away, because it had no moisture. And other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it and choked it. And other seed fell upon good ground, and sprang up and yielded fruit a hundredfold. As He said these things He cried out, He who has ears to hear, let him hear! But His disciples then began to ask Him what this parable meant, He said to them, To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God, but to the rest in parables, that ‘Seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.’ Now the parable is this: the seed is the word of God. And those by the wayside are they who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, that they may not believe and be saved. Now those upon the rock are they who, when they have heard, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, but believe for a while, and in time of temptation fall away. And that which fell among the thorns, these are they who have heard, and as they go their way are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not ripen. But that upon good ground, these are they who, with a right and good heart, having heard the word, hold it fast, and bear fruit in patience.

At the conclusion of the Gospel…

S. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

P. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Sermon

SIT
After the Gospel, if there is to be a sermon, the priest will return to the middle of the altar and remove his maniple, which signifies that there is a pause in the celebration of the Mass. The MC, thurifer and acolytes will also move to the middle, genuflect and then take a seat at the sedilia (chairs) in the sanctuary. After the sermon, the priest will return and put the maniple back on his arm and then continue as below.

Creed 

Father is in the center

On Sundays and certain Feasts the priest recites the Creed, a summary of the Catholic Doctrine. This profession of faith was drawn up in the General Councils of Nicaea in 325 and Constantinople in 381 to condemn heretics who denied that Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost  are God.
As with the Gloria, Father will intone the first words of the Credo and then the schola will continue with the chant while the priest says the rest quietly. Often the MC will lead Father to the sedilia to sit when the schola finishes.
You may chant the Credo with the schola if you wish.
STAND
If the priest
sits while the
schola finishes,
sit when he does.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et in visibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Bow head Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de coelis. 

Here kneel down. Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Rise. 

Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. 

Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio Bow head simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostólicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri saeculi. Amen.

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things, visible and invisible. And in one Lord Bow head Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. And born of the Father, before all ages. God of God: Light of Light: true God of true God. Begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven. 

Here kneel down. And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary: and was made man. Rise.

He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, of whose kingdom there shall be no end. 

And in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son. Who together, with the Father and the Son, is Bow head adored and glorified: Who spoke by the prophets. And in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead. And the life  of the world to come. Amen. 

Offertory 

The priest kisses the altar, and turning to the people says in Latin:

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

SIT
Then the priest says and the schola chants the Offertory verse, a short quotation from Holy Scripture which varies with the Mass of each day. 

Ps 16:5-7
Make my steps steadfast in Your paths, that my feet may not falter. Incline Your ear to me; hear my word. Show Your wondrous kindness, O Lord, Saviour of those who trust in You.

This being finished, he offers the bread and wine, which, by virtue of the words of consecration, he is going to change into the adorable Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. He takes the paten with the host and offering it up, says in Latin:

Accept, O holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this unspotted host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present: as also for all faithful Christians, both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Making the Sign of the Cross with the paten, he places the host upon the corporal. He pours wine and water into the chalice, blessing the water before it is mixed. He pours a few drops of water into the chalice containing wine, in remembrance of the water and blood which flowed from the side of Jesus when pierced by the soldier’s lance.

O God, who, in creating human nature, didst wonderfully dignify it, and still more wonderfully restore it, grant that, by the Mystery of this water and wine, we may be made partakers of His divine nature, who vouchsafed to be made partaker of our human nature, even Jesus Christ our Lord, Thy Son, who with Thee, liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God: world without end. Amen. 

 We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet savor, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen. 

Accept us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God. 

Raising his eyes towards heaven, extending and then joining his hands, the priest makes the Sign of the Cross over the host and the chalice, while he invokes the Holy Spirit.

Come, O almighty and eternal God, the Sanctifier, and bless  this Sacrifice, prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name. 

Father will now incense the gifts and the altar.

Lavabo

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The priest washes his fingers to symbolize the great purity and inner cleanliness of those who offer or participate in this great Sacrifice, and then says in Latin:

Ps. 25. 6-12

I will wash my hands among the innocent: and I will compass Thine altar, O Lord That I may hear the voice of praise: and tell of all Thy wonderous works. I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of Thy house and the place where Thy glory dwelleth. Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood-thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts. But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. My foot hath stood in the direct way, in the churches I will bless Thee, O Lord. 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

“This majestic prayer of offering to the Most Holy Trinity states in detail the particular purpose for which the holy Sacrifice is offered.”1

Father is in the center

Receive, O holy Trinity, this oblation which we make to Thee, in memory of the Passion, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in honor of Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, that it may avail unto their honor and our salvation, and may they vouchsafe to intercede for us in heaven, whose memory we celebrate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

The Orate Fratres

The priest kisses the altar and turns towards the people, extending, then joining his hands, and say audibly “Orate fratres.” He then turns back to the altar and continues silently in Latin:

P. Brethren, pray that my Sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God the Father almighty. 

The MC answers on our behalf in Latin:

S. May the Lord receive the Sacrifice from thy hands, to the praise and glory of His Name, to our benefit and that of all His holy Church.  

The priest answers in a low voice:

P. Amen. 

Secret 

This prayer is one of the variable parts of the Mass, called the propers, which changes based on the Mass being celebrated and is prayed silently. It is “the completion of the Offertory and introduces the actual oblation of the Sacrifice in the great prayer of the Canon”1 of the Mass.

May this sacrifice which we offer You, O Lord, ever give us new life and protection.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Preface 

STAND
The priest begins the Preface, a call to render thanks to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in union with all the heavenly spirits. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise varies with important Feasts.
You may respond with the MC and schola the following:

P. Dóminus vobíscum.

S. Et cum spíritu tuo.

P. Sursum corda.

S. Habémus ad Dóminum.

P. Grátias agámus Dómino, Deo nostro.

S. Dignum et justum est.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Lift up your hearts. 

S. We have lifted them up to the Lord. 

P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. 

S. It is right and just. 

The particular Preface changes for certain Masses, with the Preface of the Holy Trinity used on most Sundays. 

It is 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:

Sanctus

Immediately at the conclusion of the Preface the priest begins the Sanctus and the bells are rung three times.
The schola will also chant the Sanctus, which you may join if you wish. It is customary to Cross yourself at the Benedictus.
KNEEL

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

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory! Hosanna in the highest!  Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest! 

Canon 

The Canon of the Mass is made up of the fixed forms of the prayers from the Sanctus to the Pater Noster. It is said silently by the priest.

Prayers for the Church

We therefore, humbly pray and beseech Thee, most merciful Father, through Jesus Christ; Thy Son, our Lord, that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to accept and bless. these  gifts, these  presents, these  holy unspotted Sacrifices, which in the first place we offer Thee for Thy holy Catholic Church to which vouchsafe to grant peace, as also to preserve, unite, and govern it throughout the world, together with Thy servant N. our Pope, and N. our Bishop, and all orthodox believers and professors of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith. 

Commemoration of the Living

Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants and handmaidens, N. et N. and of all here present, whose faith and devotion are known unto Thee, for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves, their families and friends, for the redemption of their souls, for the health and salvation they hope for; and who now pay their vows to Thee, the everlasting, living and true God. 

We pray in union with and honor the memory, especially of the glorious ever Virgin Mary, mother of our God and Lord Jesus Christ: as also of the blessed Joseph, her Spouse, and of the blessed Apostles and Martyrs Peter and Paul, Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and of all Thy Saints, through whose merits and prayers, grant that we may in all things be defended by the help of Thy protection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.  

Prayers at the Consecration

Spreading his hands over the oblation, the bells are rung one time to signal that the Consecration is approaching and the priest says in Latin:

We therefore beseech Thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this oblation of our service, as also of Thy whole family; and to dispose our days in Thy peace, preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of Thine Elect. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Which oblation do Thou, O God, vouchsafe in all respects, to bless,  approve,  ratify,  make worthy and acceptable; that it may be made for us the Body  and Blood  of Thy most beloved Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Consecration of the Host

Who, the day before He suffered, took bread into His holy and venerable hands, and with His eyes lifted up towards heaven unto Thee, God, His almighty Father, giving thanks to Thee, He blessed  it, broke it and gave it to His disciples saying: Take and eat ye all of this, 

The words of the Consecration of the Host:

FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

After pronouncing the words of the Consecration, the priest, kneeling, adores the Sacred Host; rising, he elevates It, then placing It on the corporal, again adores It. After this he never disjoins his fingers and thumbs, except when he is to take the Host, until after the washing of his fingers during the ablutions.
You may wish to look up at the Sacred Host, with faith, piety, and love, saying to yourself: MY LORD and MY GOD!

Consecration of the Wine

In like manner, after He had supped, taking also this excellent chalice into His holy and venerable hands He blessed  , and gave it to His disciples, saying: Take and drink ye all of this,  

The words of Consecration of the Chalice:

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL TESTAMENT, THE MYSTERY OF FAITH; WHICH SHALL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.

The priest kneels and adores the Precious Blood; rising, he elevates the Chalice, and setting it down he covers it and adores it again. 
You may wish to look up at the Chalice and say to yourself something such as: BE MINDFUL O LORD, OF THY CREATURE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED BY THY PRECIOUS BLOOD!
After the elevation of the Chalice, the priest says in a low voice in Latin:

As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in remembrance of Me.

Prayers After Consecration

The priest continues silently in Latin:

Wherefore, O Lord, we Thy servants, as also Thy holy people, calling to mind the blessed Passion of the same Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, and also His Resurrection from the dead and His glorious Ascension into heaven: do offer unto Thy most excellent Majesty of Thine own gifts, bestowed upon us, a pure  Victim, a holy  Victim, an unspotted  Victim, the holy  Bread of eternal life, and the Chalice ☩ of everlasting salvation. 

Upon which vouchsafe to look with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as Thou wert graciously pleased to accept the gifts of Thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our patriarch Abraham, and that which Thy high priest Melchisedech offered to Thee, a holy Sacrifice, and unspotted Victim.

We most humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine majesty, that as many as shall partake of the most holy Body  and Blood  of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Commemoration of the Dead

Remember also, O Lord, Thy servants and handmaids N. and N., who are gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace; Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The priest says the first words, “Nobis quoque peccatoribus” in a somewhat elevated tone of voice, to symbolize an act of public self-humiliation; at the same time he strikes his breast in a token of contrition.

To us also, Thy sinful servants, confiding in the multitude of Thy mercies, vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with Thy holy Apostles and Martyrs, with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicity, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia, and with all Thy Saints, into whose company we beseech Thee to admit us, not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offenses. Through Christ our Lord. 

By Whom, O Lord, Thou dost ever create, sanctify,  quicken,  bless,  and give unto us all these good things. 

He uncovers the Chalice, and genuflects: then taking the Host in his right hand, and holding the Chalice in his left, he signs with the Sign of the Cross five times across the Chalice, saying:

By Him,  and with Him,  and in Him  is to Thee, God the Father  almighty, in the unity of the Holy  Ghost, all honor and glory. 

Replacing the Host, and covering the Chalice, he kneels down, and rising again, he says in Latin:

P. Per omnia secula saecolorum.

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

Pater Noster 

In the Extraordinary Form, the priest alone says the Our Father.
You may, however, join the schola and MC in chanting the “Sed libera nos a malo” response.
STAND

Oremus: etc.

Let us pray. Instructed by Thy saving precepts, and following Thy divine institution, we are bold to say: 

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, Sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie. Et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem: 

S. Sed libera nos a malo. 

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. 

S. But deliver us from evil.

P. Amen.   

The priest continues silently in Latin: 

Deliver us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all evils, past, present, and to come; and by the intercession of the Blessed and glorious ever Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and of the holy Apostles, Peter and Paul, and of Andrew, and of all the Saints, mercifully grant peace in our days, that through the assistance of Thy mercy we may be always free from sin, and secure from all disturbance.

Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. 

Who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth God,

P. World without end. 

S. Amen. 

KNEEL

P. Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. The peace  of the Lord be  always with  you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

He puts a Particle of the Sacred Host into the Chalice, saying in Latin:

May this mixture and consecration of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ be to us who receive it effectual unto eternal life. Amen. 

Agnus Dei

He covers the Chalice, genuflects and rises; then bowing down and striking his breast thrice, he says the Angus Dei.
You may join the schola in chanting the Agnus Dei if you wish.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast miserére nobis.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccáta mundi: Strike breast dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast have mercy on us. 

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world,  Strike breast grant us peace. 

Prayers for Holy Communion

With his hands joined and resting on the altar, standing inclined, he says the three following prayers in Latin:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who saidst to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you: regard not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe to grant her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who, according to the will of Thy Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Ghost, hast by Thy death given life to the world; deliver me by this Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my iniquities and from all evils; and make me always cleave to Thy commandments, and suffer me never to be separated from Thee, Who livest and reignest, with the same God the Father and the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen. 

Let not the partaking of Thy Body, O Lord, Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but let it, through Thy mercy, become a safeguard and remedy, both for soul and body; Who with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen. 

Communion of the Priest

The priest genuflects, rises and says in Latin:

I will take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord. 

Slightly inclining, he takes both halves of the Host between the thumb and forefinger of his left hand; then striking his breast with his right hand, and raising his voice a little, he says in Latin “Domine, non sum dignus…” three times devoutly and humbly while the bells are rung:

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

V. Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word, and my soul shall be healed.

Then with his right hand, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host over the paten, he says:

The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

He then reverently receives both halves of the Host, joins his hands, and meditates a short time. Then he uncovers the Chalice, genuflects, collects whatever fragments may remain on the corporal, and purifies the paten over the Chalice, saying:

What return shall I make to the Lord for all He has given to me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from my enemies. 

After the priest consumes the Host, the servers move to the credence table to put away the bells and retrieve the patens they will use during the distribution of Communion.
The priest takes the Chalice and making the Sign of the Cross with it, says:

The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting. Amen. 

Then he receives all the Precious Blood, together with the Particle.

Holy Communion

In many places there is often no longer an additional Confiteor immediately before Communion, however it is still a pious custom of many of the faithful to pray it quietly on their own even if the altar boys or sacred ministers do not recite it.

Confíteor Deo omnipoténti, beátæ Maríæ semper Vírgini, beáto Michaéli Archángelo, beáto Joánni Baptístæ, sanctis Apóstolis Petro et Paulo, ómnibus Sanctis, et tibi, pater: quia peccávi nimis cogitatióne, verbo et opere: Strike breast thrice mea culpa, mea culpa, mea máxima culpa. Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper Vírginem, beátum Michaélem Archángelum, beátum Joánnem Baptístam, sanctos Apóstolos Petrum et Paulum, omnes Sanctos, et te, pater, orare pro me ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum.

I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, Strike breast thrice through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints, and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon me, forgive me my sins, and bring me unto life everlasting. Amen. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant me pardon, absolution, and remission of my sins. Amen. 

Elevating a particle of the Blessed Sacrament and turning towards the people, he says:

Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollit peccáta mundi. 

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sins of the world. 

And then he says three times in Latin the following. 
In some places it is a custom for the congregation, even at a Low Mass, to quietly pray these words in Latin outloud:

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

Strike breast  Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur ánima mea. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed. 

P. Strike breast  Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.  

If you will be receiving Communion, now is typically an appropriate time to get up and go to the altar rail.
Note: In the Extraordinary Form, Communion is received on the tongue while kneeling (if there are no physical impediments) at the altar rail.

You do not say “Amen”, the priest says it at the end of the prayer. 
The priest, making the Sign of the Cross with the Host, says the following prayer as he administers Holy Communion to you: 

P. The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve thy soul unto life everlasting. Amen.

Ablutions

Father is in the center

After Communion, the priest returns to the altar and says silently:

Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind; and from a temporal gift may it become to us an eternal remedy. 

Then he holds out the Chalice to the server who pours wine into it for the first ablution, then the priest proceeds:

May Thy Body, O Lord, which I have received, and Thy Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my bowels; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament; Who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen. 

The priest then washes his fingers and receives the second ablution at the right side of the altar. Then he covers the chalice and folding the corporal, places it on the chalice, as at the beginning of Mass.

Communion and Post Communion Verses

Father is on the right (Epistle side)

The Communion and Post Communion verses are the final two propers, or variable parts, of the Mass. The priest goes to the Missal on the epistle side and says the Communion verse. (The schola will have already chanted this prayer.)

Ps 42:4
I will go in to the altar of God, the God of my gladness and joy.

Father returns to the middle, kisses the altar and the returns to the epistle side where he chants the Post Communion.
STAND

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Oremus

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

Let us pray.

O almighty God, grant, we humbly beseech You, that those whom You refresh with Your sacrament may also worthily serve You in a way that is well pleasing to You.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.

S. Amen.

Conclusion 

Father is in the center

The priest turns to the people and chants: 

P. Dominus vobiscum.

S. Et cum spiritu tuo.

P. Ite Missa est.

S. Deo Gratias.

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

P. Go, the Mass is ended.

S. Thanks be to God.

KNEEL
The priest turns back to the altar and says silently in Latin:

May the performance of my homage be pleasing to Thee, O holy Trinity: and grant that the Sacrifice which I, though unworthy, have offered up in the sight of Thy Majesty, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be a propitiation for me, and for all those for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He kisses the altar, turns to the people and raising his eyes, extending, raising and joining his hands, he bows down his head and says:

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

S. Amen. 

Last Gospel

Father is on the left (Gospel side)

Then turning to the gospel-side of the altar, the priest says:
STAND

P. The Lord be with you. 

S. And with thy spirit. 

This Gospel is recited at the end of most Masses. In it “St. John declares that Christ, the Word made Flesh, is the source of life on earth, the light in the darkness, and the love that will last forever.”1 The priest traces the Sign of the Cross, first upon the altar, and then upon his forehead, lips, and breast, and says:

The beginning  of the holy Gospel according to John. 

S. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

John. 1, 1-14. 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was made nothing that was made: in Him was life, and the life was the Light of men; and the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to testify concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but he was to testify concerning the Light. 

That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him to them He gave power to become sons of God, to them that believe in His Name, who are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 

Here all kneel. And the Word was made flesh, Rise  

and dwelt among us: and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

R. Thanks be to God.

After the Last Gospel there are no Leonine prayers as at a Low Mass.

Recessional

STAND
After Mass, and after the conclusion of the recessional hymn, it is customary for the faithful to kneel for a moment in thanksgiving for the Holy Mass just offered. You may wish to add prayers of thanksgiving for the priest who celebrated the Mass; your parish and bishop; holy priests, religious and faithful persecuted for their fidelity; and for the great gift of Summorum Pontificum, which Pope Benedict XVI gave us in 2007.
