Preface II of the Sundays in Ordinary Time: [The mystery of salvation]

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God,
through Christ our Lord.

For out of compassion for the waywardness that is ours,
he humbled himself and was born of the Virgin;
by the passion of the Cross he freed us from unending death,
and by rising from the dead he gave us life eternal.

And so, with Angels and Archangels,
with Thrones and Dominions,
and with all the hosts and Powers of heaven,
we sing the hymn of your glory,
as without end we acclaim:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…

Communion Antiphon:

You have prepared a table before me,
and how precious is the chalice that quenches my thirst. Psalm 23:5
  — or —
We have come to know and to believe
in the love that God has for us. I Jn 4:16 [Roman Missal]

(B) Dicit Andreas Simoni fratri suo: Invenimus Messiam, qui dicitur Christus: et adduxit eum ad Iesum. Jn 1:41-42 [Gregorian Missal, p.435]

Choose one Antiphona ad communionem and Psalmus from any of the eight Masses for Ordinary Time [Graduale simplex, pp.215-252]

Prayer after Communion:

Pour on us, O Lord, the Spirit of your love,

and in your kindness
make those you have nourished
by this one heavenly Bread
one in mind and heart.

Through Christ our Lord. A-men.
