Latin Mass Text

Introit: Ps. xxiv, 6, 3, et 22

Remember, O Lord, Thine heart of mercy, and Thy mercies that are from the beginning of the world; lest at any time our enemies come to rule over us. Deliver us, O God of Israel, from all our tribulations. [Ps.] To Thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul. In Thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be put to shame. Glory be.... Remember....


O God, who seest that we have no power whatever from ourselves; keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may hurt the soul. This we ask of Thee through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who with the Holy Ghost and Thee live and reign together, one God, world without end. Amen

Epistle: 1 Thessalonians iv. 1-7

A reading from the epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Thessalonians:
Brethren: Even as you have learned from us how you ought to walk and to please God -- as, indeed, you are walking -- we beseech and exhort you in the Lord Jesus to make even greater progress. For you know what precepts I have given you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that you abstain from immorality; that every one of you learn how to possess his vessel in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God; that no one over-reach and transgress his brother in the matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all these things, as we have told you before, and have testified. For God has not called you unto uncleanness, but unto holiness, in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

Gradual: Ps. xxiv. 17-18

The troubles of my heart are multiplied. Deliver me from my necessities, O Lord. See my abjection and my labor, and forgive me all my sins.

Tract: Ps. cv. 1-4

Give glory to the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures forever. Who shall declare the powers of the Lord? Who shall set forth all His praises? Blessed are they that keep judgment, and do justice at all times. Remember us, O Lord, in the favor of Thy people. Visit us with Thy salvation.

Gospel: Matthew xvii. 1-9
  The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.

At that time, Jesus took Peter, James, and his brother John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves, and was transfigured before them. And His face shone as the sun, and His garments became white as snow. And, behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elias, talking together with Him. Then Peter addressed Jesus, saying, "Lord, it is good for us to be here. If Thou wilt, let us set up three tents here, one for Thee, one for Moses, and one for Elias." As he was still speaking, behold a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear Him." And on hearing it, the disciples fell on their faces and were exceedingly afraid. And Jesus came near, and touched them, and said to them, "Arise, and do not be afraid." But lifting up their eyes, they saw no one, but Jesus only. And as they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus cautioned them, saying, "Tell the vision to no one, till the Son of Man has risen from the dead." 



Offertory: Ps. cxviii. 47,48

I will meditate on Thy commandments, which I love exceedingly. I will lift up my hands to Thy commandments, which I have loved.


Peacefully look down, we beseech Thee, O Lord, upon these sacrifices, that they may both increase our devotion, and contribute to our salvation. This we ask of Thee through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who with the Holy Ghost and Thee live and reign together, one God, world without end. Amen
