PART I: THE MASS OF THE CATECHUMENS

During which the worshiper should prepare for the Mass of the Faithful by praying
the devotions with the Celebrant, and by reflecting on the Scriptures which are
read as part of the liturgy of this day. At a Low Mass the worshipers are directed,
not prescribed (!), to kneel at all times except for the Gospels (when they stand),
the Offertory and the Ablutions (when they sit).

❡The Priest comes before the Altar to begin the Mass by saying the preparation
with the server, or at the High Mass, with the Deacon and the Subdeacon.

Priest. In the Name of the Father, ✠ and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Priest. I will go unto the Altar of God.
Answer. Even unto the God of my joy and gladness.
Psalm 43, (Judica me, Deus)
Priest. Give sentence with me, O God, and defend my cause against the ungodly
people; * O deliver me from the deceitful and wicked man.
Answer. For thou art the God of my strength, why hast thou put me from thee:
and why go I so heavily, while the enemy oppresseth me?
Priest. O send out thy light and thy truth, that they may lead me: and bring me
unto thy holy hill, and to thy dwelling.
Answer. And that I may go unto the Altar of God, even unto the God of my joy and
gladness: and upon the harp will I give thanks unto thee, O God, my God.
Priest. Why art thou so heavy, O my soul: and why art thou so disquieted within
me?
Answer. O put thy trust in God: for I will yet give him thanks, which is the help of
my countenance, and my God.
Priest. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
Answer. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end.
