Most Holy Child Jesus.


There is nothing else on earth so wonderful as this. There is no other act so wonderful and honourable as this of the priest.

And you are allowed to help him—to serve at the Altar of the great God.

Be reverent and devout; serve as you have been taught. Do not stare about you; and when you have to genuflect, do so always with your face towards the Altar and your right knee to the ground.


Kneeling at the left hand of the Priest, answer him as follows:

Priest. Introibo ad altare Dei.

Clerk. Ad Deum qui lætificat juventutem meam.

P. Judica me, Deus, et discerne causam meam de gente non sanctâ: ab homine iniquo et doloso erue me.

C. Quia tu es, Deus, fortitudo mea: quare me repulisti, et quare tristis incedo dum affligit me inimicus?
