[Latin Text]

FIRST MASS

Introit: 4 Esdras ii: 34, 35

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. [Ps.] A hymn, O God, becometh Thee in Sion, and a vow shall be paid to Thee in Jerusalem. O hear my prayer; all flesh shall come to thee. Eternal....

Collect:

O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful, grant to the souls of Thy servants departed the remission of their sins, that, through our devout prayers, they may obtain the pardon they so ardently desire.

Epistle: 1 Corinthians xv: 51-57

    A reading from the epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians:
Brethren, behold, I tell you a mystery: we shall indeed rise again, but we shall not all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall rise again incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. And when this mortal has put on immortality, they shall come to pass the saying that is written, "Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?" Now the sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Gradual: 4 Esdras ii: 34, 35

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. [Ps.] The just shall be in everlasting memory: he shall not fear the evil hearing.

Tract:

Absolve, O Lord, the souls of all the faithful departed from every bond of sin. And by the help of Thy grace may they be enabled to escape the avenging judgement. And enjoy the happiness of ever- lasting life.

The Sequence: Dies irae:

O Day of Wrath! O day of mourning,
    See fulfilled the prophets' warning;

    Heaven and earth in ashes burning.
Oh, what fear man's bosom rendeth.
    When from heaven the Judge descendeth,
    On whose sentence all dependeth
Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth,
    Through earth's sepulchres it ringeth,
    All before the throne it bringeth.
Death is struck and nature quaking,
    All creation is awaking,
    To its Judge an answer making.
Lo! the book exactly worded,
    Wherein all hath been recorded;
    Thence shall judgement be awarded.
When the Judge his seat attaineth,
    And each hidden deed arraineth,
    Nothing unavenged remaineth
What shall I, frail man, be pleading
    Who for me be interceding,
    When the just are mercy needing?
King of majesty tremendous,
    Who dost free salvation send us,
    Fount of pity, then befriend us!
Think, good Jesu, my salvation 
    Caused Thy wondrous Incarnation.
    Leave me not to reprobation
Faint and weary, Thou hast sought me,
    On the cross of suffering bought me;
    Shall such grace be vainly brought me?
Righteous Judge! for sin's pollution
    Grant Thy gift of absolution,
    Ere that day of retribution
Guilty, now I pour my moaning,
    All my shame with anguish owning;
    Spare, O God, Thy suppliant groaning.
Thou the sinful woman savedst; 
    Thou the dying thief forgavest;
    And to me a hope vouchsafest.
Worthless are my prayers and sighing;
    Yet, good Lord, in grace complying,
    Rescue me from fires undying.
With Thy favored sheep, O place me,
    Nor among the goats abase me,
    But to Thy right hand upraise me.
While the wicked are confounded,
    Doomed to flames of woe unbounded,
    Call me with Thy saints surrounded.
Low I kneel, with heart submission,
    See like ashes my contrition;
    Help me in my last condition.
Ah! that day of tears and mourning!
    From the dust of earth returning 
Man for judgement must prepare him.
    Spare, O God, in mercy spare him!
Lord all pitying, Jesu blest,
    Grant them Thine eternal rest.
    Amen.

Gospel: John v: 25-29

    +    The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to John:

At that time, Jesus said to the multitude of the Jews, "Amen, I say to you, that the hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live. For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has given to the Son also to have life in Himself; and He has given power to do judgement, because He is the Son of man. Wonder not at this, for the hour comes wherein all that are in the grave shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that have done good things shall come forth unto the resurrection of life, but they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment.

The Offertory

O Lord Jesus Christ, King of glory, deliver the souls of all the faithful departed from all the pains of hell and from the deep pit: deliver them from the lion's mouth, that hell may not swallow them up, and may they not fall into darkness; may Thy holy standard bearer, Michael, lead them into the holy light; Which Thou didst promise to Abraham and to his seed. We offer to Thee, O Lord, sacrifices and prayers: do Thou receive them in behalf of those souls whom we commemorate this day. Grant them, O Lord, to pass from death unto life; which Thou didst promise to Abraham and to his seed.

Secret:

Look with favor, we beseech Thee, O Lord, upon the sacrifice which we offer up to Thee on behalf of the souls of Thy servants and handmaids, and deign thereby to be appeased. On those souls Thou didst bestow the merit of faith in Christ: deny them not its reward.

Preface of the Dead.

Communion

May light eternal shine upon them, O Lord. With the saints forever, because Thou are merciful. Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. With the saints forever, because Thou are merciful.

Postcommunion

May the prayer of Thy suppliant people, O Lord, benefit the souls of Thy servants; that Thou mayest deliver them from all their sins, and make them partakers of Thy redemption.


SECOND MASS

Introit: 4 Esdras ii: 34, 35

Collect:

O God, the Lord of mercies, grant to the souls of Thy servants and handmaids a place of refreshment, rest, and happiness, and the glory of Thy light.

Epistle: 2 Machabees xii: 43-46

    A reading from the second book of Machabees:
In those days, the most valiant man Judas, making a gathering, sent twelve thousand drachmas of silver to Jerusalem for sacrifice to be offered for the sins of the dead, thinking well and religiously concerning the resurrection (for if he had not hoped that they that were slain would rise again, it would have seemed superfluous and vain to pray for the dead); and because he considered that they who had fallen asleep with godliness, had great grace laid up for them. It is therefore a holy and a wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed for their sins.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. [Ps.] The just shall be in everlasting memory: he shall not fear the evil hearing.

And this is the will of My Father that sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son, and believes in Him, may have life everlasting; and I will raise him up on the last day.

The Offertory

Then Jesus said to them, "Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you shall not have life in you. He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, has everlasting life; and I will raise him up on the last day.
