Responsorial Psalm 2nd Reading: New Testament Gospel

24 A reading from the holy Gospel according to ________
People: Glory to you, O Lord.

25 May Christ's words be in my mind, † on my lips, † and in my heart. †

26 Profession of Faith Apostles Creed or Nicene Creed

27 Nicene Creed I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

28 I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

29 I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of
life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

30 I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

42 commingling “By the mystery of this water and wine may we come to share in the divinity of Christ who humbled himself to share in our humanity.”

43 Priest, bowing profoundly, says quietly,
“With humble spirit and contrite heart may we be accepted by you, O Lord, and may our sacrifice in your sight this day be pleasing to you, Lord God.”


45 “Wash me, O Lord, from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.”

46 Invitation to Prayer Priest: Pray, brethren (brothers and sisters), that my sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God, the almighty Father. People: May the Lord accept this sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of his name, for our good and the good of all his holy Church.

55 Consecration

56 Take this, all of you, and eat of it, for this is my Body, which will be given up for you.
