Note, That at those words, THE WORD WAS

MADE FLESH, both priest and people kneel

down in reverence to Christ's Incarnation. N. B. That as often as the Mass of a Saint is

said upon a lunday, or upon a vigil, or other feria, which hath' its proper Mass; then at the end of the Mass, instead of the beginning of the Gospel of St. John, is read the Gospel which is proper for that sunday, vigil, or feria. And at the third Mass on ChristmasDay, is read the Gospel of the Epiphany.


The Words of St. Blolius, o Pelages Sanctæ.


Ocean of sweetness and divine Love, my

God, make hafte, and give thyself to me, that I may worthily give myself back to thee. Let me never rest here, but be ever soaring up to thee, that in thee I may rest, and breathe forth my

soul with an entire heart, and a full desire, and a moft flaming affection ; let me ever prefer thee my God, before all the creatures of the world, and for the love of thee let me renounce all things of a transitory delight. O the only and true joy


soul. Feed me, O Lord, at the sacred table of thy divinity; this only thing I beg, I desire, that a most ardent and vehement love may penetrate my soul, and so replenish it, that it may


totally changed into thee. O most sweet Redeemer, grant, that with the love of thee I may be all on fire, and that That fire of divine love may. totally consume me, and that I may but live in the sweet fruition of thee my God. Let me not feel, or know any other object than thee alone. O overflowing Sea of most sacred Divinity, draw me to thyself, and drown me there take from me all the affections of my heart, and so apply to thyself, that I may perfectly be dead to all other objects but thee, O my God.
