Listen to the Holy Rosary in Latin

 

The Johannine Prologue (St. John 1.1-14)

Learn the Last Gospel Reading Concluding the Tridentine Mass


The Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

Listen to the Prayer as you read it

 

 

Have you ever wondered what prayer the priest utters at the very end of the Tridentine Latin Mass — often called the Second Gospel? Now you can prayer it with him in your hearts at the conclusion of the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Listen to the audio file below and follow the very first chapter of the Gospel according to Saint John printed below — as the priest prays one of the most widely recognized verses in the Bible.

 



In principio erat Verbum et Verbum erat apud Deum et Deus erat Verbum. Hoc erat in principio apud Deum. Omnia per Ipsum facta sunt, et sine Ipso factum est nihil quod factum est. In Ipso vita erat, et vita erat Lux hominum. Et Lux in tenebris lucet et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt.

Fuit homo missus a Deo cui nomen erat Iohannes. Hic venit in testimonium ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine ut omnes crederent per Illum. Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine. Erat lux vera quae illuminat omnem hominem venientem in mundum. In mundo erat, et mundus per ipsum factus est, et mundus eum non cognovit.

In propria venit et sui eum non receperunt. Quotquot autem receperunt eum dedit eis potestatem filios Dei, fieri his qui credunt in nomine Eius. Qui non ex sanguinibus, neque ex voluntate carnis, neque ex voluntate viri, sed ex Deo nati sunt.
(All kneel at the following)

 

ET VERBUM CARO FACTUM EST,

et habitavit in nobis,
 

et vidimus gloriam eius, gloriam quasi unigeniti a Patre, plenum gratiae et veritatis.”

Deo gratias.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him: and without Him was made nothing that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the Light, that all men might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but was to give testimony of the Light. That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, He gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in His name. Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (here all kneel)
 

AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US,
 

and we saw His glory, the glory as it were of the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (St. John 1.1-14)

Thanks be to God.
