The Priest's Communion

PANEM caelestem accipiam, et nomen Domini invocabo.

IWILL take the Bread of heaven, and will call upon the Name of the Lord.

The Priest repeats the following prayer, striking his breast three times:

DOMINE, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum: sed tantum dic verbo, et sanabitur anima mea.

LORD, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof; say but the word and my soul shall be healed.

The Priest makes the sign of the cross with the Host over the paten and says:

CORPUS Domini nostri Jesu Christi custodiat animam meam in vitam aeternam.  Amen.

THE Body of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul unto life everlasting.  Amen.

The Priest consumes the Sacred Host and then says the following prayer with profound adoration:

QUID retribuam Domino pro omnibus quae retribuit mihi? Calicem salutaris accipiam, et nomen Domini invoacbo. Laudans invocabo Dominum, et ab inimicis meis salvus ero.

WHAT return shall I render unto the Lord for all He has given me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and I will call upon the Name of the Lord. Praising I will call upon the Lord, and I shall be saved from all my enemies.

The Priest takes the Chalice in his right hand, makes the sign of the cross with it and says:

SANGUIS Domini nostri Jesu Christi custiodiat animam meam in vitam aeternam.  Amen.

THE Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my soul to life everlasting.  Amen.

The Priest receives the Previous Blood.
