Regína sacratíssimi Rosárii, ora pro nobis!

Ethiopic Rite
Liturgical Language: Geez 

[Priest]  In the night in which he was betrayed, he took bread into his spotless hands, lifted his eyes unto Thee, his Father, gave  thanks, blessed, and sanctified it.

At these words the priest takes the host in both hands,
raises his eyes toward the cross, and blesses the host three times.
He breaks the host lightly on the edge in five places (top, bottom, right, left, and left of bottom),
and bowing over the altar, says in a low voice:

[Priest]  He broke it and gave it to his disciples.

He sings the words of consecration:

[Priest]  Take this and eat; this is my Body, which is broken for you unto the forgiveness of sins.

He places the sacred Host back on the altar.

[The server and people answer]  Amen! Amen! Amen!  We believe and confess and glorify thee, our Lord and God. We believe that this is truly thy Body"

The priest takes the pall from the chalice.  He raises the chalice slightly:

[Priest]  In the same way he took the chalice, gave thanks,  blessed it, sanctified + it, and gave it to his disciples with these words:

He makes the sign of the cross three times over the chalice, and sings the words of consecration:

[Priest]  Take and drink;  this is my blood, which is shed for you for the redemption of many.

At these words the priest inclines the chalice in four directions in the form of a cross.
He makes a profound bow and adores the Precious Blood

[The servers and people say] Amen. Amen. Amen.  We believe this is truly thy Blood

[Priest]  Every time you do this, do it in memory of me.
