MASS OF ST. PAUL OF THE CROSS

Entrance Antiphon

I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except for Jesus Christ, and him crucified. (1 Cor 2:2)

Collect

May the Priest Saint Paul, whose only love was the Cross, obtain for us your grace, O Lord, so that, urged on more strongly by his example, we may each embrace our own cross with courage. Though our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Prayer over the Offerings

Look, upon the sacrificial gifts we offer, almighty God, in commemoration of Saint Paul of the Cross and grant that we who celebrate the mysteries of the Lord’s Passion may imitate what we now enact. Through Christ our Lord.

Communion Antiphon

We proclaim Christ Crucified; Christ, the power of God and the wisdom of God. (1 Cor 1:23,24)

Prayer after Communion

O God, who in Saint Paul had wonderfully made known the mystery of the Cross, graciously grant that, drawing strength from this sacrifice, we may cling faithfully to Christ and labour in the Church for the salvation of all. Through Christ our Lord.
