Here, breaking the Host, he puts a particle thereof

into the Chalice, saying :

AY this mixture and

consecration of the Body and Blood of our et Sanguinis Domini nostri Lord Jesus Christ, be to Jesu Christi, fiat accipienus that receive it, effectual tibus nobis in vitam æterto life everlasting. Amen.




Then lowing, and striking his breast thrice, he says: L

The Prayer before the Kiss of Peace.

• Here, according to the Rubric, and the practice of the Western Church, the Kiss of Peace is to be given, in token of that mutual charity, which all ought to bring with them to this mystery of charity. In solemn Masses the Deacon receives this kiss from the officiating Priest; he gives it the sub-deacon, from whom it goes through all the Clergy. In private Masses, the Clerk holds forth to the Priest an instrument called the Pax, to kiss, which he afterwards kisseth himself, and in some places it is handed to all preme to be separated from eodem Deo Patre et Spiritu thee; who with the same sancto vivis et regnas Deus God the Father, and the in sæcula sæculorum.holy Ghost, livest and Amen. reignest God, world without end.

Here, if duly disposed, go up to the rails to receive the holy Communion. For the Mass being the sacrifice of the People, as well as of the Priest, it is agreeable to the intention of the Church, that the people should partake thereof, before the assembly be dismissed by the : Ite, Missa est. Moreover the POSTCOMMUNION, which is the proper prayer of thanksgiving after communion, being common to Priest and People, it is to be wished they would comniunicate at the proper time, that is, immediately after the communion of the Priest, join therefore with the Clerk in saying the Confiteor with a true sorrow, and compunction for your sins. Then the Priest having said: May almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you your sins, and bring you to life everlasting. R. Amen. May the Lord, who is almighty and merciful, grant you pardon, absolution, and remission of your sins. R. Amen. He takes the Sacred Host in his hand, again turns about, and says: Behold the Lamb of God : Behold him who taketh away the sins of the world. Lord I am not worthy, &c. thrice. Repeat these last words with him thrice, striking your breasts in token of your unworthiness. Then having the towel spread on your hands, your eyes modestly closed, your head likewise raised up, and your mouth conveniently opened, receive the holy sacrament on your tongue resting on your under lip; then close your mouth, and say in your heart : Amen: I believe it to be the body of Christ, and I pray it may preserve my soul to eternal life. Then withdraw from the rails, and when the Priest receives the first and second ablution, or washing of the chalice, say such prayers as best suit your devotion.
