Tu Es Sacerdos
You are a priest for ever according to the order of Melchizedek.

Prayer after Communion
Fraction of the Bread
I confess to almighty God
and to you, my brothers and sisters,
that I have greatly sinned,
in my thoughts and in my words,
in what I have done and in what I have failed to do,
And, striking their breast, they say:
through my fault, through my fault,
through my most grievous fault;
therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin,
all the Angels and Saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters,
to pray for me to the Lord our God.
Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy
Gloria in Excelsis
THE COMMUNION RITE
Bishop: At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:
Bishop: Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil,
...as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Rite of Peace
THE LITURGY OF THE WORD
Psalm 89:21-22, 25, 27
THE LITURGY OF THE EUCHARIST
Preparation of the Gifts
John Ness Beck
With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,
Shall I come before Him with yearling calves?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of oil?
Shall I give Him my first-born for my transgressions, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has shown you, O man;
He has shown you what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly, walk humbly with your God?
Election of the Candidates
The candidates are presented to the Bishop, who addresses several questions to them.
At the conclusion, the Bishop addresses all present:
Relying on the help of the Lord God and our Savior Jesus Christ,
we choose these, our brothers, for the Order of the Priesthood.
Thanks be to God.
