Excerpt:

T<j) UMj) Aa/3t'S.

The words " Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord" are often sung immediately after the consecration; an allusion to the words: "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered together thy children, as the hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and thou wouldest not? . . . / say to you you shall not see me henceforth till you shall say: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord."

* SU tf^'in Hosha'na.

f The 25 Chislev, December 25. } Matt. xxi. g.

Ite missa est.
R. Deo gratias.

Placeat tibi, Sancta Trinitas, obsequium servitutis meae, et praesta, ut sacrificium, quod oculis tuae majestatis indignus obtuli, tibi sit acceptabile, mihique, et omnibus pro quibus illud obtuli, sit, te miserante, propitiabile. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

Benedicat vos omnipotens Deus, Pater, et Filius, >f> et Spiritus sanctus. Amen.

Dominus vobiscum.

R. Et cum spiritu tuo.

Initium sancti Evangelii secundum Joannem. R. Gloria tibi Domine.

C. In principio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum. Hoc erat in principio apud Deum. Omnia per ipsum facta sunt: et sine ipso factum est nihil quod factum est. In ipso vita erat, et vita erat lux hominum: et lux in tenebris lucet, et tenebrae earn non comprehenderunt. Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen erat Joannes. Hie venit in testimonium, ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine, ut omnes crederent per illum. Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimonium

Go, the mass is ended.

R. Thanks be to God.

Inclining at the middle of the altar, he prays May the homage of my service be pleasing to Thee O holy Trinity, and grant that the sacrifice that 1, unworthy, have offered in Thy sight, may be acceptable to Thee, and through Thy mercy, be propitious to me and to all for whom I have offered it. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Then the celebrant blesses all present, making the sign of the cross, and saying

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

The Lord be with you.

R. And with thy spirit.

These words are said at the gospel side, where the celebrant now reads the last Gospel, S. John i. 1-14.

C. The beginning of the holy Gospel according to S. John.

R. Glory to Thee O Lord. The celebrant and all present make the triple sign of the cross.

C. 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 shines 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, that he might bear witness to the light, that all men might believe through him.
