Introit Ezekiel 36:23-26; Psalm 34:1Dum sanctificatus fuero in vobis, congregabo vos de universis terris: et effundam super vos aquam mundam, et mundabimini ab omnibus inquinamentis vestris: et dabo vobis spiritum novum. V. Benedícam Dóminum in omni témpore: semper laus ejus in ore meo. Glória Patri.As long as I shall be sanctified in thee, I shall gather thee out of all the nations. I shall sprinkle clean water on thee; and cleanse thee from all thy impurities; and I shall give thee a new spirit. V. I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Glory be to the Father.
Reading Philippians 3:8-14
Gradual Galatians 6:14; 1 Cor. 2:2Mihi autem absit gloriari, nisi in cruce Domini nostri Iesu Christi. Per quem mihi mundus crucifixus est et ego mundo. V. Non judicávi me scire áliquid inter vos nisi Jesum Christum, et hunc crucifíxum.God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified to me, and I to the world. V. I had no thought of bringing thee any other knowledge than that of Jesus Christ, and of him as crucified.
