Léctio Epístolæ beáti Iacóbi Apóstoli
Ias 1:22-27
Caríssimi: Estóte factóres verbi, et non auditóres tantum: falléntes vosmetípsos. Quia si quis audítor est verbi et non factor: hic comparábitur viro consideránti vultum nativitátis suæ in spéculo: considerávit enim se et ábiit, et statim oblítus est, qualis fúerit. Qui autem perspéxerit in legem perfectam libertátis et permánserit in ea, non audítor obliviósus factus, sed factor óperis: hic beátus in facto suo erit. Si quis autem putat se religiósum esse, non refrénans linguam suam, sed sedúcens cor suum, huius vana est relígio. Relígio munda et immaculáta apud Deum et Patrem hæc est: Visitáre pupíllos et viduas in tribulatióne eórum, et immaculátum se custodíre ab hoc sǽculo.
R. Deo grátias.
Lesson from the letter of St James the Apostle
Jas 1:22-27
Dearly beloved: But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if a man be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he shall be compared to a man beholding his own countenance in a glass. For he beheld himself, and went his way, and presently forgot what manner of man he was. But he that hath looked into the perfect law of liberty, and hath continued therein, not becoming a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work; this man shall be blessed in his deed. And if any man think himself to be religious, not bridling his tongue, but deceiving his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation: and to keep one’s self unspotted from this world.
R. Thanks be to God.

Si vero Sacerdos sine Diacono et Subdiacono celebrat, delato libro ad aliud cornu Altaris, inclinatus in medio, iunctis manibus dicit:
Munda cor meum, ac labia mea, omnípotens Deus, qui labia Isaíæ Prophétæ cálculo mundásti igníto: ita me tua grata miseratióne dignáre mundáre, ut sanctum Evangélium tuum digne váleam nuntiáre. Per Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
Iube, Dómine, benedícere. Dóminus sit in corde meo et in lábiis meis: ut digne et competénter annúntiem Evangélium suum. Amen.
Deinde, conversus ad librum, iunctis manibus, dicit:
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spíritu tuo.
Et pronuntians: Inítium, sive Sequéntia sancti Evangélii, signat librum, et se in fronte, ore et pectore, et legit Evangelium, ut dictum est. Quo finito, respondet Minister: Laus tibi, Christe, et Sacerdos osculatur Evangelium, dicens: per evangelica dicta, ut supra.
Sequéntia +︎ sancti Evangélii secúndum Ioánnem
R. Glória tibi, Dómine.
Ioann 16:23-30
In illo témpore: Dixit Iesus discípulis suis: Amen, amen, dico vobis: si quid petiéritis Patrem in nómine meo, dabit vobis. Usque modo non petístis quidquam in nómine meo: Pétite, et accipiétis, ut gáudium vestrum sit plenum. Hæc in provérbiis locútus sum vobis. Venit hora, cum iam non in provérbiis loquar vobis, sed palam de Patre annuntiábo vobis. In illo die in nómine meo petétis: et non dico vobis, quia ego rogábo Patrem de vobis: ipse enim Pater amat vos, quia vos me amástis, et credidístis quia ego a Deo exívi. Exívi a Patre et veni in mundum: íterum relínquo mundum et vado ad Patrem. Dicunt ei discípuli eius: Ecce, nunc palam loquéris et provérbium nullum dicis. Nunc scimus, quia scis ómnia et non opus est tibi, ut quis te intérroget: in hoc crédimus, quia a Deo exísti.
R. Laus tibi, Christe.
S. Per Evangélica dicta, deleántur nostra delícta.
The Missal is transferred to the other side of the altar. At Low Masses, the priest, bowing down at the middle of the altar, with his hands joined, says:
Cleanse my heart and my lips, O almighty God, who didst cleanse the lips of the prophet Isaias with a burning coal, and vouchsafe, through Thy gracious mercy, so to purify me, that I may worthily announce Thy holy Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Give me Thy blessing, O Lord. The Lord be in my heart and on my lips, that I may worthily and in a becoming manner, proclaim His holy Gospel. Amen.

P. The Lord be with you.
S. And with thy spirit.
Continuation ✠ of the Holy Gospel according to John
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
John 16:23-30
In that time, Jesus said to His disciples: Amen, amen I say to you: if you ask the Father any thing in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto you have not asked any thing in my name. Ask, and you shall receive; that your joy may be full. These things I have spoken to you in proverbs. The hour cometh, when I will no more speak to you in proverbs, but will shew you plainly of the Father. In that day you shall ask in my name; and I say not to you, that I will ask the Father for you: For the Father himself loveth you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again I leave the world, and I go to the Father. His disciples say to him: Behold, now thou speakest plainly, and speakest no proverb. Now we know that thou knowest all things, and thou needest not that any man should ask thee. By this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
R. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
S. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.
