Mass of the Presanctified. The Priest, vested in black, lies prostrate for some time in silent prayer before the altar; in the meantime the Acolytes cover the altar with a linen cloth, and place the book on the epistle side. The Priest then goes up to the altar and reads the following:

I. LESSON. Osee vi. 1. 6. Thus saith the Lord: In their affliction they will rise early to me: Come, and let us return to the Lord. For ho hath taken us, and he will heal us: he will strike, and he will cure us. He will revive us after two days; on the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. We shall know, and we shall follow on, that we may know the Lord. His going forth is prepared as the morning light, and he will come to us as the early and the latter rain to the earth. What shall I do to thee, O Ephraim? What shall I do to thee, O Juda? Your mercy is as a morning cloud, and as the dew that goeth away in the morning. For this reason have I hewed them by the prophets, I have slain them by the words of my mouth; and thy judgments shall go forth as the light. For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than holocausts.

Let us pray. Let us kneel down. R. Stand up again. COLL. Deus à quo, as page 314.

II. LESSON. Exod. xii. 1.11. In those days: The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt: This month shall be to you the beginning, of months: it shall be the first in the months of the year. Speak ye to the whole assembly of the children of Israel, and say to them: On the tenth day of this month, let every man take a lamb by their families and houses. But if the number be less than may suffice to eat the lamb, he shall take unto him his neighbour that joineth to his house, according to the number of souls which may be enough to eat the lamb. And it shall be a lamb without blemish, a male of one year; according to which rite also he shall kill a kid. And you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month: and the whole multitude of the children of Israel shall sacrifice it in the evening. And they shall take of the blood thereof, and put it upon both the side-posts, and on the upper door-posts of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. And they shall cat the flesh that night roasted at the fire, and unleavened bread, with wild lettuce. You shall not eat thereof any thing raw, nor boiled in water, but only roasted at the fire: you shall eat the liead with the feet and entrails thereof. Neither shall there remain any thing of it until morning. If there be any
