When these things begin to come to pass, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is at hand.

Ad te levávi ánimam meam: Deus meus, in te confído, non erubéscam: neque irrídeant me inimíci mei: étenim univérsi, qui te exspéctant, non confundéntur.

THE MYSTERY OF ADVENT

In the first coming,’ says St. Bernard, He comes in the flesh and in weakness; in the second, He comes in spirit and in power; in the third, He comes in glory and in majesty; and the second coming is the means whereby we pass from the first to the third.’

Second Collect in Honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary

O God, who didst please that thy Word should take flesh at the message of an Angel in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary, grant unto us thy suppliants, that we, who believe her to be truly the Mother of God, may be helped by her intercession with thee.

EPISTLE Romans 13. 11-14

Brethren, knowing that it is now the hour for us to rise from sleep. For now our salvation is nearer than when we believed. The night is passed and the day is at hand. Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day: not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and impurities, not in contention and envy: but put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ.

GRADUAL Psalm 24: 3, 4 

Univérsi, qui te exspéctant, non confundéntur, Dómine. Vias tuas, Dómine, notas fac mihi: et sémitas tuas édoce me.

All they, that wait on Thee, shall not be confounded, O Lord. Show, O Lord, Thy ways to me: and teach me Thy paths.

ALLELUIA Psalm 84: 4 

ALLELÚIA, allelúia. V. Osténde nobis, Dómine, misericórdiam tuam: et salutáre tuum da nobis. Allelúia.

Alleluia, alleluia. V. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy: and grant us Thy salvation Alleluia.

Advent 1And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon...

GOSPEL Luke 21. 25-33

At that time Jesus said to His disciples: There shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, by reason of the confusion of the roaring of the sea and of the waves: men withering away for fear and expectation of what shall come upon the whole world. For the powers of heaven shall be moved. And then they shall see the Son of man coming in a cloud with great power and majesty.  But when these things begin to come to pass, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is at hand. And He spoke to them a similitude: See the fig tree and all the trees: when they now shoot forth their fruit, you know that summer is nigh. So you also, when you shall see these things come to pass, know that the kingdom of God is at hand. Amen, I say to you, this generation shall not pass away till all things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but My words shall not pass away. 

OFFERTORY: Psalm 129: 1-2

To Thee have I lifted up my soul: in Thee, O my God, I put my trust, let me not be ashamed: neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait for Thee shall be confounded.

SECRET 

May these holy Mysteries, O Lord, cleanse us by their powerful efficacy, and enable us to come with greater purity to Him who is their foundation. Through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Second Secret Prayer in Honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Strengthen, we beseech thee, O Lord, in our minds the mysteries of the true faith:  that we who confess him that was conceived of the Virgin to be very God and very Man, may by the power of his saving Resurrection, deserve to arrive at eternal gladness.

PREFACE OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY

It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, ever-lasting God: Who, together with Thine only-begotten Son, and the Holy Ghost, are one God, one Lord: not in the oneness of a single Person, but in the Trinity of one substance. For what we believe by Thy revelation of Thy glory, the same do we believe of Thy Son, the same of the Holy Ghost, without difference or separation. So that in confess- ing the true and everlasting Godhead, distinction in persons, unity in essence, and equality in majesty may be adored. Which the Angels and Archangels, the Cherubim also and Seraphim do praise: who cease not daily to cry out with one voice saying:

Advent  -Since Christ Himself has said, This is My Body who shall dare to doubt that It is His Body

Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus, Dóminus Deus Sábaoth. Pleni sunt cæli et terra glória tua. Hosánna in excélsis. Benedíctus  qui venit in nómine Dómini. Hosánna in excélsis.

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he  that cometh in the Name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

COMMUNION Psalm 84: 13

The Lord will give goodness: and our earth shall yield her fruit.

POSTCOMMUNION

May we receive of thy mercy, O Lord, in the midst of Thy temple; that we may with becoming honour prepare for the approaching solemnities of our redemption.  Through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord…

The Annunciation

Second Postcommunion in Honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Pour forth, we beseech thee, O Lord, thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ thy Son was made known by the message of an Angel, may by his Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of the Resurrection.

Mary annunciation

The Liturgical Year -Prosper Guéranger

The whole world is in expectation of its Redeemer; come, dear Jesus, show Thyself to it by granting it salvation. The Church, Thy bride, is now commencing another year, and her first word is to Thee, a word which she speaks in the anxious solicitude of a mother for the safety of her children; she cries out to Thee, saying: ‘Come!’ No, we will go no farther in our journey through the desert of this life without Thee, 0 Jesus! Time is passing quickly away from us; our day is perhaps far spent, and the shades of our life’s night are fast coming on; arise, 0 divine Sun of justice. Come! guide our steps and save us from eternal death.
