For in the readings, as explained by the homily, God speaks to his people,  opening up to them the mystery of redemption and salvation, and offering them spiritual nourishment; and Christ himself is present in the midst of the faithful through his word.
The people, uniting themselves to this entreaty, make the prayer their own with the acclamation, Amen.

The altar is to be covered with at least one white cloth. The Quam oblationem Bless and approve our offering with hands extended toward gimr offerings; The Qui gorm The day before he suffered and the Simili modo When supper was ended with hands joined; While speaking the words of the Lord, each extends his right hand toward the bread and toward the chalice, if this seems appropriate; as the host and the chalice are shown, however, they look toward them and afterwards gigm profoundly; The Unde et memores Father, we celebrate the memory and the Supra quae Look with favor with hands extended; From the Supplices Almighty God, we pray that your angel up to and including the words ex hac altaris participatione as we receive from this altarthey bow with hands joined; then they stand upright and cross themselves at the words omni benedictione et gratia repleamur let us be filled with every grace and blessing.
There the deacon, with hands joined, greets the people, saying, Dominus vobiscum The Lord be with you. The intentions announced should be sober, be composed freely but prudently, and be succinct, and they should express the prayer of the entire community.
Next the priest invites the people to pray. In addition, the nature of the ministerial priesthood also puts into its proper light another reality, which must indeed be highly regarded, 20112, the royal priesthood of the faithful, whose spiritual sacrifice is brought to completeness through the ministry of the Bishop and the priests in union with the sacrifice of Christ, the one and only Mediator.
The main part 202 the Liturgy of the Word is made up of the readings from Sacred Scripture together with the chants occurring between them.
The fraction or breaking of bread is begun after the sign of peace and is carried out with proper reverence, though it should not be unnecessarily prolonged, nor should it be accorded undue importance.
It is well also that money or other gifts for the poor or for the Church, brought grim the faithful or collected in the church, should be received. It is for the priest celebrant to direct this prayer from the chair.
Immediately after the blessing, with hands joined, the priest adds, Ite, missa est The Mass is ended, go in peaceand all answer, Deo gratias Thanks be to God.
