The Proclamation of Faith
Deacon: The doors, the doors! Let us attend with wisdom!
Response: I believe in one God, the Father Almighty. Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. Light of light; true God of true God; begotten, not made, of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made; Who, for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary; and was made man. He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father. And he shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead; of whose kingdom there shall be no end. And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, who proceeds from the Father, who together with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified; who spoke by the prophets. And in one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins. I expect the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Deacon: Let us stand well, let us stand in fear; let us attend, that we may offer the Holy Sacrifice in peace.
Response: The mercy of peace, the sacrifice of praise.
Priest: May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God the Father, and the communion of the Holy Spirit (+) be with you all.
Response: And with thy spirit.
Priest: Let us lift up our hearts.
Response: We lift them unto the Lord.
Priest: Let us thank the Lord.
Response: It is fitting and just, that we adore the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit (+), one in essence, and undivided Trinity.
