1. After the Celebrant has been purified, while he is placing the Chalice on the Altar, the minister carries the Missal to the Epistle side, and places it as at the Introit. The minister kneels at the Gospel side, as at the beginning of Mass. Then the Celebrant, standing with his hands joined, reads the Communion Antiphon. After reading it, with his hands joined in the same way before his breast, he goes to the middle of the Altar, and having kissed it, turns toward the people from his left hand to his right, and says:

Dominus vobiscum.

R. Et cum spiritu tuo.

And he turns around the same way toward the book, saying the Prayer after Communion, in the same way, number and arrangement as before at the Orations at the beginning of Mass. When he has finished, he closes the book, and joining his hands before his breast, returns to the middle of the Altar where, after kissing it, he turns toward the people and says:

Dominus vobiscum.

R. Et cum spiritu tuo.

After saying this, standing with his hands joined before his breast, and facing the people, he says, if prescribed:

Ite, missa est.

R. Deo gratias.

And he turns around the same way to the Altar. If it is not prescribed, having said Dominus vobiscum, he turns around the same way to the middle of the Altar, where he stands facing it, with his hands joined before his breast, and says:

Benedicamus Domino.

R. Deo gratias.

In Masses for the dead, he stands facing the Altar in the same way, and says:

Requiescant in pace.     

R. Amen.

2. In Lent, from Ash Wednesday up to and including the Wednesday in Holy Week in the ferial Office, after the Celebrant says the prayers after Communion with their usual conclusions, before he says Dominus vobiscum, standing in the same place, before the book, he says:

Oremus. Humiliate capita vestra Deo.

And inclining his head and extending his hands, he adds in the same voice the Prayer over the People. When he has finished, in the same place, he kisses the Altar, and turning toward the people, says Dominus vobiscum, and everything else as above.

3. In solemn Masses the Deacon carries the Missal to the Epistle side, and then goes behind the Celebrant. The Subdeacon goes to the Epistle side, where he cleanses the Chalice, and covers it with the Purificator, Paten and Pall, folds the Corporal and replaces it in the Burse, and places the Burse upon the Chalice, which he has covered with the Veil, located upon the Altar or upon the Credence as before. Afterward he goes to his place behind the Deacon. When the Deacon says Ite, missa est, he turns toward the people with the Celebrant. In Lent, when the Celebrant has said Oremus, the Deacon turns toward the people at the Epistle side, and with his hands joined, says Humiliate, etc., and having said this, he returns to his place facing the Altar behind the Celebrant, and the Celebrant says the Prayer over the People. In sung Masses Ite, missa estBenedicamus Domino, or Requiescant in pace is sung by the Celebrant himself.

The Blessing at the end of Mass and the Gospel of Saint John

The Lord's Prayer and everything else up to the end of Communion
