Psalms 67: 6, 7, 36
God in His holy place; God who maketh men of one mind to dwell in a house; He shall give power and strength to His people. -- (Ps. 67. 2). Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered: and let them that hate Him flee from before His face. V.: Glory be to the Father . . . -- God in His holy place . . .
COLLECT - O almighty and everlasting God, who in the abundance of Thy loving-kindness art wont to go beyond both the merits and prayers of Thy suppliant people, pour down upon us Thy mercy: that Thou mayest forgive us those things whereof our conscience is afraid, and grant us what our prayer does not dare to ask. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who . . ..
I Corinthians 15: 1-10
Brethren, I make known unto you the Gospel which I preached to you, which also you have received and wherein you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast after what manner I preached unto you, unless you have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all, which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures; and that He was seen by Cephas, and after that by the eleven. Then was He seen by more than five hundred brethren at once; of whom many remain until this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the Apostles. And last of all He was seen by me, as by one born out of due time. For I am the least of the Apostles, who am not worthy to be called an Apostle, because I persecuted the Church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am; and His grace in me hath not been void.
Psalms 27: 7,1
In God hath my heart confided, and I have been helped; and my flesh hath flourished again; and with my will I will give praise to Him. V.: Unto Thee have I cried, O Lord: O my God, be not Thou silent; depart not from me.
Alleluia, alleluia. V.(Ps. 80. 2, 3). Rejoice in God our helper; sing aloud to the God of Jacob; take a pleasant pslam with the harp. Alleluia.
Psalms 29: 2, 3
I will extol Thee, O Lord, for Thou hast upheld me; and hast not made my enemies to rejoice over me: O Lord, I have cried to Thee, and Thou hast healed me.
SECRET - Look graciously, we beseech Thee, O Lord, upon our service; that what we offer may be a gift acceptable unto Thee, and a support to us in our weakness. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost . . .
PREFACE (Preface of the Most Holy Trinity) - It it truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God; Who, together 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 what we believe by Thy revelation of Thy glory, the same do we believe of Thy Son, the same of the Holy Ghost, without difference or separation. So that in confessing the true and everlasting Godhead, distinction in persons, unity in essence, and equality in majesty may be adored. Which the Angels and Archangels, the Cherubim also and Seraphim do praise: who cease not daily to cry out, with one voice saying:
Proverbs 3: 9, 10
Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the first of all thy fruits: and thy barns shall be filled with abundance, and thy presses shall run over with wine.
POST COMMUNION - By the reception of Thy Sacrament, we beseech Thee, O Lord, may we find support for mind and body: so that, healed in both, we may glory in the fullness of the heavenly remedy. Through our Lord . . .
