Latin Text

Introit: Ps. xxx: 30

People of  Sion, behold  the Lord shall come to save the nations: and the  Lord shall make the glory of His voice to be heard in the joy of your  heart.  [Ps.]  Give ear, O Thou that rulest Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep.  Glory be....  People of Sion.... Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.  People of Sion....

The Gloria in excelsis is omitted in Masses of  the Advent season.


Stir up  our hearts,  O Lord,  to prepare the ways of Thine only-begotten Son; that through His coming we may attain to serve Thee with purified minds.  Who liveth and reigneth with God the Father....

 Collects of the Season

Epistle: Romans xv: 4-13

    A reading from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Romans:
Brethren:   What things  soever were  written for  our  learning: that, through  patience and  the comfort  of the  Scriptures, we might have hope.   Now the God of patience and of comfort grant you to be of one mind,  one towards  another, according to Jesus Christ;  that with one mind  and with one mouth you may glorify God and the Father of our Lord Jesus  Christ.   Wherefore, receive  one another,  as Christ also received you  unto the  honor of God.  For I say that Christ Jesus was the minister  of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made  unto the  fathers.  But the gentiles are to glorify God for His  mercy, as it is written, "Therefore will I confess to Thee, O Lord, among  the Gentiles  and will  sing to Thy name."  And again, He says, "Rejoice  ye Gentiles  with His people."  And again, "Praise the Lord, all  ye Gentiles,  and magnify  Him all  ye people."  And again, Isaias says,  "There shall be a root of Jesse, and He shall rise up to rule the  Gentiles; in  Him the  Gentiles shall hope."  Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope and in the power of the Holy Ghost.

Gradual: Ps. xlix: 2-3 & 5

Out of  Sion  the  loveliness  of  His  beauty,  God  shall  come magnificently.   Gather ye  together, His  saints to Him, who have set His covenant before sacrifices.
Alleluia, alleluia,  I rejoiced  at the  things that were said to me.  We shall go into the house of the Lord, alleluia!

Gospel: Matthew xi: 2-10

    +     The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.
At that time, when  John had  heard in  prison of  the works of Christ, sending  two of  his disciples,  he said  to Him, "Art Thou He that is to come, or shall we look for another?"  And Jesus, answering, said to  them, "Go  and relate  to John  what you have heard and seen.  The blind  see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead  rise again,  the poor have the gospel preached to them:  and blessed is  he that  is not  scandalized in  Me."   And when they went their way, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John, "What did you  go out  into the desert to see?  A reed shaken with the wind? But what went you out to see?  A man clothed in soft garments?  Behold they that  are clothed  in soft  garments are  in the houses of kings. But what  went you  out to see?  A prophet?  Yes, I tell you, and more than a  prophet?  For this is he of whom it is written, 'Behold I send My angel before Thy face, who shall prepare Thy way before Thee.'"


Offertory: Ps. lxxxiv: 7-8

Thou wilt turn, O God, and bring us to life, and Thy people shall rejoice in  Thee.   Show us,  O Lord,  thy mercy,  and  grant  us  Thy salvation.


Be appeased,  we  beseech  Thee,  O  Lord,  by  the  prayers  and offerings of  our humility,  and where  we have no merits to plead for us, do Thou help us with Thine aid.
