Who can worthily be present at this Sacrifice,
unless You, O God, makes him worthy?
I know, O Lord, that I am unworthy to approach so great a Mystery,
by reason of my numberless sins and negligences;
but I know, and truly with my own heart do I believe,
and with my mouth confess,
that You can make me worthy.
By Your Almighty power I beseech You, O my God,
to grant that I, a sinner,
may assist at this Sacrifice with fear and trembling,
with purity of heart and plenteous tears,
with spiritual gladness and heavenly joy.
May my mind feel the sweetness of Your most blessed Presence,
and the love of Your holy Angels,
keeping watch around me.
