Preface III of Sundays in Ordinary Time: [The salvation of man by a man]

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God.

For we know it belongs to your boundless glory,
that you came to the aid of mortal beings with your divinity
and even fashioned for us a remedy out of mortality itself,
that the cause of our downfall
might become the means of our salvation,
through Christ our Lord.

Through him the host of Angels adores your majesty
and rejoices in your presence for ever.
May our voices, we pray, join with theirs
in one chorus of exultant praise, as we acclaim:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…

Communion Antiphon:

The Lord is good to those who hope in him,
to the soul that seeks him. Lam 3:25 [Roman Missal]

— or —

Though many, we are one bread, one body,
for we all partake of the one Bread and one Chalice. See I Cor 10:17 [Roman Missal]

Through Christ our Lord. A-men.
