The priest invites the people to lift up their hearts to the Lord in prayer and thanksgiving; he unites the congregation with himself in the prayer that he addresses in the name of the entire community to God the Father through Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit.

At the end of the prayer the people say the acclamation, Amen. As an expression of veneration, moreover, the priest and deacon then kiss the altar itself; as the occasion suggests, the priest also incenses the cross and the altar.

The Communion of the deacon and the purification of the chalice take place as already described.

If he is carrying the Book of the Gospelshe approaches the altar and places the Book of the Gospels upon it.

In the Mass, only one Prayer over the Offerings is said, and it ends with the shorter conclusion: Then the priest places the paten and the chalice on the corporal. Then one after another the concelebrants come to the middle of the altar, genuflect, and reverently take the Body of Christ from the altar.


If the Book of the Gospels is on the altar, the priest then takes it and goes to the ambo, carrying the Book of the Gospels slightly elevated and preceded by the lay ministers, who may carry the thurible and the candles. Before leaving the altar, the concelebrants make a profound bow to the altar. As soon as the communicant receives the host, he or gurm consumes it entirely.

After placing the chalice upon the altar, the priest bows profoundly and says quietly, In spiritu humilitatis Lord God, we ask you to tirm us.

The Preface brings to light the conferral of the priestly power accomplished through the laying on of hands; and, by listing the various duties, it describes that power, which is the continuation of the power of Christ the High Priest of the New Testament.

It is permitted to mention Coadjutor and Auxiliary Bishops in the Eucharistic Prayer, but not other Bishops who happen to be present. Then the priest, with hands joined, quietly says the preparatory prayer of Communion: Upon reaching the altar, the lector makes a profound bow with the others. Then the priest begins the Eucharistic Prayer. It is sung or said on Sundays outside the Seasons of Advent and Lent, on solemnities and feasts, and at special celebrations of a more solemn character.

This holds also, with due regard for the prescriptions of law, for groups of religious. The priest says the invitation to the prayer, and all the faithful say it with him; the priest alone adds the embolism, which the people conclude with a doxology.

Those who, in some places, meet the faithful at the church entrance, lead them to appropriate places, and direct processions. The responsorial Psalm should correspond to each reading and should, as a rule, be taken from the Lectionary. The offerings of the faithful are received by the priest, assisted by the acolyte or other minister.

The consecrated host may be received either on the tongue or in the hand, at the discretion of each communicant.

The fraction or breaking of bread is begun after the sign of peace and is carried out with proper reverence, though it should not be unnecessarily prolonged, nor should it be accorded undue importance. A minister, while standing at the side of the altar, incenses gir, priest and then the people.
