"Supplices te rogamus"

Bowing down profoundly, with his hands joined and placed upon the altar, he says:

SUPPLICES te rogamus, omnipotens Deus, jube haec perferri per manus sancti Angeli tui in sublime altare tuum, in conspectu divinae majertatis tuae: ut quoquot (osculatur altare) ex hac altaris participatione, sacrocanctum Filii tui The sign of the cross.Corpus, et Sanguinem The sign of the cross.sumpserimus, omni benedictione coelesti et gratia repleamur.  Per eumdem Christum Dominum nostrum.  Amen.

MOST humbly we beseech Thee, Almighty God, command these offerings to be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angels to Thine altar on high, in the sight of Thy divine Majesty, that as many (He kisses the altar) as shall partake of the most holy Body The sign of the cross.and Blood The sign of the cross.of Thy Son at this altar, may be filled with every heavenly grace and blessing.  Through the same Christ our Lord.  Amen.
