Let us come with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and may find grace for a timely help. (P.T. Alleluia, alleluia) (Ps.) I have lifted up mine eyes to the mountains; whence help shall come to me. Glory be. Let us.
O lord Jesus Christ, our Mediator with the Father, who hast appointed the most blessed Virgin, Thy Mother, to be our Mother also and our Mediatrix before Thee; grant that whosoever drawest nigh to Thee to beseech any benefit, may receive all things through her and rejoice.
Epistle: Isaias iv: 1-3, 5
A reading from the Prophet Isaias:
All ye that thirst, come ye to the waters; and you that have no money, hasten, buy and eat; come ye, buy without money, and without any payment wine and milk. Why do you spend money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy.? Ye hearers, hear me, and buy that which is good, and your soul shall rejoice in largess. Incline your ear and come to me: hear and your soul shall live. Behold thou shall call a nation, which thou knewest not: and the nations that knew thee not shall run to thee, because of the Lord, thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel, for He hath glorified thee.
Alleluia: Isaias ix: 4
Alleluia, alleluia. Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all these are gathered together, they are come to thee alleluia. Thy sons shall come from afar, and thy daughters shall rise up at thy side. Alleluia
Gradual: Ecclesiasticus xxiv: 25, 26
In me is all grace of the way and of the truth, in me is all hope of life and
of virtue. Come over to me, all ye that desire me, and be filled with my fruits.
Tract: Apocalypse xxii: 16.
I am the root and stock of David, the bright and morning star. And the spirit and the bride say: Come. And he that heareth, let him say: Come.
Gospel: John xix: 25-27
+ The continuation of the holy Gospel according to John:
At that time there stood by the Cross of Jesus, His mother and His mother's sister, Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdelen. When Jesus therefore had seen His mother and the disciple standing, whom He loved, He said to His mother: "Woman, behold thy son." After that He said to the disciple: "Behold thy mother." And form that hour the disciple took her to his own."
Offertory: Jeremias xviii: 20
Be mindful, O virgin Mother of God, when thou standest in the sight of the Lord, to speak good things for us, and to turn away his anger from us (P.T. Alleluia).
By the prayers of our mediatrix, O Lord, we beseech Thee, may this oblation of sacrifices, through the bestowal of Thy grace, make ourselves an eternal offering to Thee.
Truly wonderful art thou, O Mary, and thy countenance is full of graces.
May the prayer of blessed Mary, Thy mother and our mediatrix, be of avail to us, O Lord; that through the bestowal of Thy grace, and these most holy rites, we may obtain an increase of eternal redemption.
