      EPISTLE: 1 Corinthians 11: 23-29
      Apóstoli ad Corinthios: Fretres, ego enim accépi a Dómino quod et trádidi vobis, quóniam Dóminus Jesus, in qua nocte tradebátur, accépit panem, et grátias agens fregit et dixit: Accipíte et manducáte: hoc est corpus meum, quod pro vobis tradétur: hoc fácite in meam commemoratiónem. Simíliter et cálicem, postquam coenávit, dicens: Hic calix novum testaméntum est in meo sánguine: hoc fácite quotiescúmque bibétis, in meam commemoratiónem. Quotiescúmque enim manducábitis panem hunc, et cálicem bibétis: mortem Dóminum annuntiábitis donec véniat. ltaque quicúmque manducáverit panem hunc, vel bíberit cálicem Dómini indígne, reus erit cáórporis et sánguinis Dómini. Probet autem seípsurn homo: et sic de pane illo edat, et de cálice bibat. Qui enirn mandúcat et bibit indígne.: judícium sibi mandúcat, et bibit non dijúdicans corpus Dómini. Deo grátias.
      Lesson from the First Epistle of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians. Brethren, I have received of the Lord, that which also I delivered to you that the Lord Jesus, the same night in which He was betrayed, took bread, and giving thanks, broke, and said: Take ye and eat, this is My Body which shall be delivered for you; this do for the commemoration of Me. In like manner also the chalice, after He had supped, saying: This chalice is the new testament in My Blood; this do ye, as often as you shall drink, for the commemoration of Me. For as often as you shall eat this bread and drink this chalice, you shall show the death of the Lord until He come. Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink of the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the Body and the Blood of the Lord. But let a man prove himself; and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of the chalice. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the Body of the Lord. Thanks be to God.

      GRADUAL: Psalm 144: 15, 16
      Oculi ómnium in te sperant, Dómine: et tu das iliis escam in témpore oppórtuno. V. Aperis tu manum tuam, et imples omne ánimal benedictióne. Allelúja, allelúja. V. (John 6: 56) Caro mea vere est cibus, et sanguis meus vere est potus qui mandácat meam carnem, et bibit meum sánguinem, in me manet, et ego in eo. Allelúja.
      The eyes of all hope in Thee, O Lord, and Thou givest them meat in due season. V. Thou openest Thy hand, and fillest living every creature with Thy blessing. Alleluia, alleluia. V. (John 6: 56) My Flesh is meat indeed and My Blood is drink indeed: he that eateth My Flesh and drinketh My Blood, abideth in Me, and I in him. Alleluia.

      SEQUENCE FOR CORPUS CHRISTI
      Lauda Sion Salvatórem,
      Lauda ducem et pastórem
      In hymnis et cánticis.
      Quantum potes, tantum aude:
      Quia major omni laude,
      Nec laudáre súfficis.
      Laudis thema speciális,
      Panis vivus et vitális,
      Hódie propónitur.
      Quem in sacræ mensa coenæ,
      Turbæ fratrum duodénæ,
      datum non ambígitur.
      Sit laus plena, sit sonóra:
      Sit jucúnda,sit decóra
      Mentis jubilátio.
      Dies enim solémnis ágitur,
      In qua mensæ prima recólitur
      Hujus institútio.
      In hac mensa novi Regis,
      Novum Pascha novæ legis
      Phase vetus términat.
      Vetustátem nóvitas,
      Umbram fugat véritas,
      Noctem lux elíminat.
      Quod in coena Christus gessit,
      Faciéndum hoc expréssit
      In sui memóriam.
      Docti sacris institútis,
      Panem, vinum, in salútis
      Consecrámus hóstiam.
      Dogma datur Christiánis,
      Quod in carnem transit panis,
      Et vinum in sánguinem.
      Quod non capis, quod non vides,
      Animósa firmat fides,
      Præter rerum ordinem.
      Sub divérsis speciébus,
      Signis tantum, et non rebus,
      Latent res exímiæ.
      Caro cibus, sanguis potus:
      Manet tamen Christus totus
      Sub utráque spécie.
      A suménte non concísus,
      Non confráctus, non divísus,
      Integer accípitur.
      Sumit unus, sumunt mille:
      Quantum isti, tantum ille:
      Nec sumptus consúmitur.
      Sumunt boni, sumunt mali,
      Sorte tamen inæquáli
      Vitæ vel intéritus.
      Mors est malis, vita bonis:
      Vide paris sumptiónis
      Quam sit dispar éxitus.
      Fracto demum Sacraménto,
      Ne vacílles, sed meménto
      Tantum esse sub fragménto
      Quantum toto tégitur.
      Nulla rei fit scissúra:
      Signi tantum fir fractúra:
      Qua nec status nec statúra
      Signáti minúitur.
      Ecce panis Angelórum,
      factus cibus viatórum,
      Vere panis fíliórum.
      Non mittendus cánibus
      In figúris præsignátur,
      Cum Isaac immolátur:
      Agnus paschæ deputátur
      Datur manna pátribus.
      Bone pastor, panis vere,
      Jesu, nostri miserére:
      Tu nos pasce, nos tuére,
      Tu nos bona fac vidére
      In terra vivéntium
      Tu, qui cuncta scis et vales,
      Qui nos pascis hic mortáles,
      Tuos ibi commensáles,
      Cohærédes et sodles,
      Fac sanctórum cívium.
      Amen. Allelúja.
      Sion, lift up thy voice and sing:
      Praise thy Savior and thy King,
      Praise with hymns
      thy shepherd true.
      All thou canst, do thou endeavor,
      Yet thy praise can equal never Such as merits thy great King.
      See today before us laid
      The living and life-giving Bread!
      Theme for praise and joy profound!
      The same which at the sacred board
      Was, by our incarnate Lord,
      Giv'n to His Apostles round.
      Let the praise be loud and high:
      Sweet and tranquil be the joy
      Felt today in every breast.
      On this festival divine
      Which records the origin
      Of the glorious Eucharist.
      On this table of the King,
      Our new Paschal offering
      Brings to end the olden rite.
      Here, for empty shadows fled,
      Is reality instead;
      Here, instead of darkness, light.
      His own act, at supper seated,
      Christ ordain'd to be repeated,
      In His memory divine;
      Wherefore now, with adoration,
      We, the Host of our salvation,
      Consecrate from bread and wine.
      Hear, what holy Church maintaineth,
      That the bread its substance changeth
      Into Flesh, the wine to Blood.
      Doth it pass thy comprehending?
      Faith, the law of sight transcending
      Leaps to things not understood,
      Here beneath these signs are hidden
      Priceless things, to sense forbidden
      Signs, not things, are all we see.
      Flesh, from bread, and Blood from wine,
      Yet is Christ in either sign,
      All entire, confessed to be.
      They, who of Him here partake,
      Sever not, nor rend, nor break:
      But, entire, their Lord receive
      Whether one or thousands eat,
      All receive the self-same meat,
      Nor the less for others leave,
      Both the wicked and the good
      eat of this celestial Food;
      But with ends how opposite!
      Here 't is life:
      and there 't is death:
      The same, yet issuing to each
      In a difference infinite.
      Nor a single doubt retain,
      When they break the Host in twain,
      But that in each part remains
      What was in the whole before;
      Since the simple sign alone
      Suffers change in state or form
      The signified remaining one
      And the same for evermore.
      Lo! upon the altar lies,
      Hidden deep from human eyes,
      Bread of Angels from the skies,
      Made the food of mortal man;
      Children's meat to dogs denied,
      In old types presignified:
      In the manna Heaven-supplied
      In Isaac, and the Paschal lamb.
      Jesu! Shepherd of the sheep!
      Thou Thy flock in safety keep,
      Living Bread! Thy life supply:
      Strengthen us, or else we die:
      Fill us with celestial grace!
      Thou, who feedest us below!
      Source of all we have or know!
      Grant that with Thy Saints above,
      Sitting at the feast of love,
      We may see Thee face to face.
      Amen. Alleluia

      R.Gloria tibi, Domine

      In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus turbis Judæórum: "Caro mea vere est cibus: et sanguis meus vere est potus. Qui mandúcat meam carnem et bibit meum sánguinem, in me manet, et ego in illo. Sicut misit me vivens Pater, et ego vivo propter Patrem: et qui mandúcat me, et ipse vivet propter me. Hic est panis qui de coelo descéndit. Non sicut manducavérunt patres vestri manna, et mórtui sunt. Qui mandúcat hunc panem, vivet in ætérnum.
      Laus tibi Christe.

      The Lord be with you.
      R. And with thy spirit.
      The continuation of the holy Gospel according to John. R. Glory to Thee, O Lord

      At that time, Jesus said to the multitude of the Jews: "My Flesh is meat indeed, and My Blood is drink indeed. He that eateth My Flesh, and drinketh My Blood, abideth in Me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent Me, and I live by the Father, so he that eateth Me, the same shall also live by Me. This is the Bread that came down from Heaven. Not as your fathers did eat manna and are dead. He that eateth this bread shall live forever."
      Praise be to Christ
