The divine liturgy: a manual of devotions for the sacrament of the altar, from ancient sources, ed. by O. Shipley

by Orby Shipley

Excerpt:

For, it shall not be so
In that great day, when faithful souls,
Whom flesh doth sway and sin controls,

As they are known shall know:

To be for ever one
With Him, Whom with the Father High
And Spirit, Angels tremblingly

Adore as God alone.

Bless, Lord, Thy child, Oh, bless; Strengthen my weakness; soothe my grief; Forgive and help mine unbelief;

Restore my faithlessness.

To God, Whom all adore,
The Father, Son, and Comforter,
Who is before all creatures were,

Be glory evermore.

Eja! dulcis Anima.

HASTE! my Soul, thou sister sweet,
Who all my being sharest,
For thy Spouse a chamber meet
Now see that thou preparest;

For a kind and gentle Guest

To visit thee intendeth;
All that heaven hath fair and best

To greet thee condescendeth.

He Whose Presence e'er imparts

A joy which passeth measure, He Whose friendship on all hearts

Bestoweth boundless pleasure, Would possess this breast of thine,

With thee His sojourn making, With thee at thy board recline,

With thee His supper taking.

Arise and run to meet thy Lord,

E'en now His steps are near thee; Thine heart a hallowed shrine afford

For Him to dwell and cheer thee; Oh, hold Him fast in thine embrace!

Let Him go from thee never, Till with the fulness of His grace

He bless thee, here and ever!

Demotions in Preparation

ACTS OF DEVOTION, PRAYERS, &c.

N the Name >b of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Direction of the Intention.

O HEAVENLY Father, I, Thy unworthy servant, presume to appear before Thee this day, to offer unto Thee by the hands of our great High Priest, Thy Son Jesus Christ, the Sacrifice of His most precious Body and Blood. I offer it, O my God, in union with the Sacrifice of the Cross, and with the same intention wherewith He offered it. I offer it to the honour and glory of Thy divine Majesty, in remembrance of the sacred Life and Passion of Thy Only-begotten Son, by the sanctification of the Holy Ghost, the Comforter. I offer it in thanksgiving for the blessings bestowed on Thy whole Church, and for those vouchsafed to me, though most unworthy, [especially ....]; for the pardon, absolution, and remission of all my sins, [especially ....], and of those for whom I am bound to pray; for my own salvation, for the salvation of the living, [especially . . . .], and for the repose of the faithful departed, [especially ....]; and lastly, O Lord God, I offer it for obtaining all those gifts and graces, [especially ....], which Thou knowest to be needful for myself, and others for whom I desire to pray. And this, my intention, I humbly offer in the Name of the same Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Act of Contrition.

OMY Creator and most loving Saviour, in union with the Sacrifice of Thy Body and Blood, I humbly offer unto Thee the sacrifice of a troubled spirit; for a broken and a contrite heart,

0 God, Thou wilt not despise. I grieve from my inmost heart that by my many sins I should have offended against Thee, Whom I ought to love above all things; for Thou art good to all, and hast bestowed very many blessings upon me, whilst I, alas, have often returned Thee only evil for Thy good. Oh, that I had never offended Thee. But
