The Priest spreading his hands over the oblation, says:

E therefore beseech


thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this oblation of our servitude, as also of thy whole family, and dispose our days in thy peace, and preserve us from eternal damnation, and rank us in the number of thy elect. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Which oblation do thou, O God, vouchsafe, we beseech thee, in all things to make blessed, approved, ratified, reasonable, and acceptable, that it may be made to us the Body and Blood of thy most beloved Son our Lord Jesus Christ.


'ANC igitur oblationem servitutis nostræ, sed et cunctæ familiæ tuæ, quæsumus, Domine, ut placatus accipias, diesque nostros in tua pace disponas, atque ab æterna damnatione nos eripi, et in electorum tuorum jubeas grege numerari. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Quam oblationem tu, Deus, in omnibus, quæsumus, benedictam, adscriptam, ratam, rationabilem, acceptabilemque facere digneris, ut nobis Corpus et Sanguis fiat dilectissimi Filii tui Domini nostri Jesu Christi.

Who the day before he suffered, took bread into his holy and venerable hands, and having lifted up his eyes towards heaven to thee, God, his almighty Father, giving thanks to thee, he blessed, brake, and gave to his disciples, saying: Take and eat ye all of this, FOR THIS IS MY BODY.

Qui pridie quam pateretur, accepit panem in sanctas ac venerabiles manus suas, et elevatis occulis in cœlum, ad te Deum Patrem suum omnipotentem, tibi gratias agens benedixit, fregit, deditque discipulis suis, dicens: Accipite et manducate ex hoc omnes, HOC EST ENIM CORPUS MEUM.

sacred host.

N like manner after he had supped, taking also this excellent Chalice into his holy and venerable hands, giving thee also thanks, he blessed, and gave to his disciples, saying: Take, and drink ye all of this, FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD,



As often as ye do these things, ye shall do them in memory of me.

Upon which vouchsafe to look down with a propitious and serene countenance, and to accept them, as thou wast pleased to accept the gifts of thy just servant Abel, and the sacrifice of our Patriarch Abraham, and that which thy high-Priest Melchisedec offered to thee, a holy sacrifice and immaculate host. We most humbly beseech thee, almighty God, command these things to be carried by the hands of thy holy Angel unto thy high altar, in the sight of thy divine majesty, that as many of us as by this participation of the altar, shall receive the most sacred Body and Blood of thy Son, may be filled with all heavenly blessing and grace. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Supra quæ propitio ac sereno vultu respicere digneris, et accepta habere, sicuti accepta habere dignatus es munera pueri tui justi Abel, et sacrificium Patriarchæ nostri Abrahæ, et quod tibi obtulit summus Sacerdos tuus Melchisedec, sanctum sacrificium, immaculatam hostiam.

Supplices te rogamus, omnipotens Deus, jube hæc perferri per manus sancti Angeli tui in sublime altare tuum, in conspectu divinæ majestatis tuæ, ut quotquot ex hac altaris participatione, sacrosanctum Filii tui Corpus et Sanguinem sumpserimus, omni benedictione cœlesti et gratia repleamur. Per eundem Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Here the Priest prays a-while in silence for such Dead as are recommended to his prayers. Then he goes

on :
