Introit: Ps 106:22-23; V./ Ps 106:1


Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui beatum Petrum Apostolum, super mare ambulantem, ad te venire jussisti: intercedente beata et gloriosa semper virgine Genetrice Maria cum omnibus Sanctis tuis, adesto famulis tuis super mare navegantibus, et in tua misericordia confidentibus; ut, ope misericordiae tuae adjuti, ad loca destinata et ad salutis portum sine impedimento sani et incolumes valeant pervenire: Qui vivis.

Suscipe, quaesumus, Domine, preces et oblationes, quas tibi offerimus pro famulis tuis super mare navegantibus: ut praesta; ut Angelus sanctus per omnem viam aquarum eis occurrat, qui in eundo et redeundo dux eis et comes mitissimus efficiatur. Per Dominum.

Communion: Ps 68:35 & Ps: 88:10


Per hujus, Domine, Sacramenti perceptionem famulos tuos navigantes, et in tua misericordia sperantes, ab omni periculos liberare digneris: adsit Spiritus Sanctus, qui eos sanos et incolumes custodiat, atque ad locum destinatum et ad salutis portum cum gaudio et prosperitate faciat pervenire. Per Dominum… in unitate.

Consummatum est!

The final sections of the missal have finally been added. That brings this chapter of the Bragan missal project to a conclusion.

As time permits, we will return to a comparison of Masses (as we were doing previously) or perhaps turn our attention to the Breviary, depending on our readers’ interest.

Missal Acquisition

Dear Readers,

Many thanks to those of you who helped raise funds to acquire the Bragan missal. We have reached the goal and the missal has been secured. While the high-res scanning does not get underway we will continue to upload the low-res scans, as has been done up until now.

Crowd funding

We are currently trying to raise money to acquire a Bragan missal the has recently been put up for sale. The purpose of the acquisition will be to provide a higher quality scan than the one currently under way. Any monetary assistance, no mater how small, is greatly appreciated. In the long run the missal will be donated to a religious community. You can make your donation here.
