Dicit Dóminus: Ego cógito cogitatiónes pacis, et non afflictiónis: invocábitis me, et ego exáudiam vos: et redúcam captivitátem vestram de cunctis locis. Ps. lxxxiv. 2. Benedixísti, Dómine, terram tuam: avertísti captivitátem Jacob. v. Glória Patri.

Liberásti nos, Dómine, ex affligéntibus nos: et eos, qui nos odérunt, confudísti. v. In Deo laudábimur tota die, et in nómine tuo confitébimur in saécula. Allelúia, allelúia. v. Ps. cxxix. 1-2. Do profúndis clamávi ad te, Dómine: Dómine, exáudi oratiónem meam.

Sequentia sancti Evangelii secundum Matthaeum. In illo tempore: Dixit Jesus turbis parabolam hanc : Simile factum est regnum caelorum homini, qui seminavit bonum semen in agro suo. Curn autem dormirent homines, venit inimicus ejus, et superseminavit zizania in medio tritici, et abiit. Cum autem crevisset herba, et fructum fecisset, tune apparuerunt et zizania. Accedentes autcm servi patrisfamilias, dixerunt ei: Domine, nonne bonum semen seminasti in agro tuo? Unde ergo habet zizania? Et ait illis: Inimicus homo hoc fecit. Servi autem dixerunt ei: Vis, imus, et colligimus ea ? Et ait: Non ne forte colligentes zizania, eradicetis simul cum eis et triticum. Sinite utraque crescere usque ad messem, et in tempore messis dicam mcssoribus: Colligite primum zizania, et alligate ea in fascicules ad comburendum, triticum autem congregate in horreum meum.
Continuation of the holy Gospel according to St. Matthew. At that time Jesus spoke this parable to the multitudes: The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man that sowed good seed in his field. But while men were asleep, his enemy came and oversowed cockle among the wheat, and went his way. And when the blade was sprung up and hadbrought forth fruit, then appeared also the cockle. And the servants of the goodman of the house coming, said to him: Sir, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? Whence then hath it cockle? And he said to them: An enemy hath done this. And the servants said to him: Wilt thou that we go and gather it up ? And he said: No, lest perhaps, gathering up the cockle, you root up the wheat also together with it. Suffer both to grow until the harvest, and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers :Gather up first the cockle and bind it into bundles to burn, but the wheat gather ye into my barn.
De profúndis clamávi ad te, Dómine: Dómine, exáudi oratiónem meam: de profúndis clamávi ad te, Domine
From the depths I have cried out to Thee, O Lord; Lord, hear my prayer: from the depths I have cried out to Thee, O Lord.
Hostias tibi, Domine, placationis offerimus : ut et delicta nostra miseratus absolvas, et nutantia corda tu dirigas. Per Dominum.
We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the sacrifice of propitiation, that Thou mayest of Thy mercy, absolve us from our sins, and Thyself direct our inconstant hearts. Through our Lord.
Exáudi nos, Deus salutáris noster: ut per hujus sacraménti virtútem, a cunctis nos mentis et córporis hóstibus tueáris; grátiam tríbuens in praesénti, et glóriam in futúro. Per Dóminum.
Graciously hear us, O God our Saviour, and by the virtue of this sacrament protect us from all enemies of soul and body, bestowing on us both grace in this iife and glory hereafter. Through our Lord.
Preface for the Most Holy Trinity
Vere dignum et justum est, aequum et salutáre, nos tibi semper, et ubíque grátias ágere: Dómine sancte, Pater omnípotens, aetérne Deus: Qui cum unigénito Fílio tuo, et Spíritu Sancto, unus es Deus, unus es Dóminus: non in uníus singularitáte persónae, sed in uníus Trinitáte substántiae. Quod enim de tua glória, revelánte te, crédimus, hoc de Fílio tuo, hoc de Spíritu Sancto, sine differéntia discretiónis sentímus. Ut in confessióne verae sempitern-aéque Deitátis, et in persónis propríetas, et in esséntia únitas, et in majestáte adorétur aequálitas. Quam laudant Angeli atque Archángeli, Chérubim quoque ac Séraphim: qui non cessant clamáre quotídie, una voce dicéntes:
It is truly meet and just, right and availing unto salvation that we should at all times and in all places give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty and everlasting God. Who 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 that which we believe from Thy revelation concerning Thy glory, that same we believe also of Thy Son, and of the Holy Ghost, without difference or separation. So that in confessing the true and everlasting Godhead, we shall adore distinction in persons, oneness in being, and equality in majesty. Which the angels and archangels, the cherubim also and the seraphim do praise nor cease to cry out as with one voice:
Amen dico vobis, quidquid orántes pétitis, crédite quia accipiétis, et fiet vobis.
Amen I say to you, whatsoever you ask when you pray, believe that you shall receive and it shall be done to you.
Quaesumus, omnipotens Deus: ut illius salutaris capiamus effectum, cujus per haec mysteria pignus accepimus. Per Dominum.
We beseech Thee, almighty God, that we may obtain the effect of that salvation, the pledge of which we have received in these mysteries. Through our Lord.
Mundet et múniat nos, quaé-sumus, Dómine, divíni Sacra-ménti munus oblátum: et, intercedénte beáta Vírgine Dei Genitríce María, cum beáto Joseph, beátis Apóstolis tuis Petro et Paulo, atque beáto N., et ómnibus Sanctis; a cunctis nos reddat et perversitátibus expiátos, et adversitátibus expedítos. Per eúmdem Dóminum.
May the oblation of this divine sacrament cleanse and defend us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, and, through the inter-cession of the blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, with blessed Joseph, Thy blessed apostles Peter and Paul, blessed N. (here mention the titular saint of the church), and all the saints, purify us from all our sins and deliver us from all adversity. Through the same Lord.
