Preface of the Most Holy Trinity: [The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity]

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.

For with your Only Begotten Son and the Holy Spirit
you are one God, one Lord:
not in the unity of a single person,
but in a Trinity of one substance.

For what you have revealed to us of your glory
we believe equally of your Son
and of the Holy Spirit,
so that, in the confessing of the true and eternal Godhead,
you might be adored in what is proper to each Person,
their unity in substance,
and their equality in majesty.

For this is praised by the Angels and Archangels,
Cherubim, too, and Seraphim,
who never cease to cry out each day,
as with one voice they acclaim:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…

Communion Antiphon:

Since you are children of God,
God has sent into your hearts the Spirit of his Son,
the Spirit who cries out: Abba, Father. Galatians 4:6 [Roman Missal]

Data est mihi omnis potestas in cælo et in terra, alleluia: euntes, docete omnes gentes, baptizantes eos in nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti, alleluia, alleluia. Matthew 28:18-19 [Graduale Romanum, p.213]
Psalm 78:1,3,4a,23,24,25,27 can also be sung between repetitions of this antiphon.

Data est mihi omnis potestas in cælo et in terra, alleluia: euntes, docete omnes gentes, baptizantes eos in nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti, alleluia, alleluia. Matthew 28:18-19 [Gregorian Missal, p.385]

Laudate Dominum de cælis. [Graduale simplex, pp.199]
Canticle of David

Prayer after Communion:

May receiving this Sacrament, O Lord our God,
bring us health of body and soul,

as we confess your eternal holy Trinity and undi- vid-ed Unity.

Through Christ our Lord. A-men.

bless you and keep you.
Amen.

May he let his face shine upon you
and show you his mercy.
Amen.

May he turn his countenace towards you and give you his peace.
Amen.
