Introit (Phil 4:4, 5, Ps. 84)
Gaudéte in Dómino semper: íterum dico, gaudéte. Modéstia vestra nota sit ómnibus homínibus: Dóminus enim prope est. Nihil sollíciti sitis: sed in omni oratióne petitiónes vestræ innotéscant apud Deum.
Vs. Benedixísti, Dómine, terram tuam: avertísti captivitátem Jacob.
Vs. Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in saécula sæculórum. Amen.
“Gaudéte in Dómino semper . . .” is repeated.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice. Let your forbearance be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Do not be anxious over anything; but in all manner of prayer, let your requests be made known unto God.
Vs. Lord, you have blessed your land; you have put an end to Jacob’s captivity.
Vs. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
“Rejoice in the Lord always . . .” is repeated.

O Lord, who are enthroned upon the Cherubim, stir up your might and come forth.

Gradual, Year B (Jn 1:6-7 & Lk 1:17)
Fuit homo missus a Deo cui nomen Joánnes erat: hic venit. Vs. Ut testimónium perhibéret de lúmine, et paráre Dómino plebem perféctam.
There was a man sent from God whose name was John; he came. Vs. To bear witness to the light, to prepare an upright people for the Lord.

Benedixísti, Dómine, terram tuam: avertísti captivitátem Jacob: remisísti iniquitatem plebis tuæ.
