descended into hell;/on the third day he rose again from the dead;/he ascended into heaven,/and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;/from there he will come to judge the living and the dead./I believe in the Holy Spirit,/the holy catholic Church,/the communion of saints,/the forgiveness of sins,/the resurrection of the body,/and life everlasting. Amen.
Cel: Elisha was ploughing his field when Elijah threw his mantle on him. Elisha understood that he has been chosen as the successor of Elijah and after initial reluctance he accepted his call. Let us pray that we may follow Jesus wholeheartedly and without conditions, saying,

Cel: God, our Father, we thank you for the gift of your Son Jesus who showed great determination to go to Jerusalem and suffer at the hands of his enemies. Nothing could deter him from accomplishing his mission. Give us the grace that we too may pursue our own mission with the assurance that you will never abandon us. We make this prayer….
O God, who graciously accomplish the effects of your mysteries, grant, we pray, that the deeds by which we serve you may be worthy of these sacred gifts. Through Christ our Lord.
PREFACE V (Ordinary)
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 you laid the foundations of the world and have arranged the changing of times and seasons; you formed man in your own image and set humanity over the whole world in all its wonder, to rule in your name over all you have made and for ever praise you in your mighty works, through Christ our Lord.
And so, with all the Angels, we praise you, as in joyful celebration we acclaim:
All: Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all within me, his holy name. (Ps 102:1)
May this divine sacrifice we have offered and received fill us with life, O Lord, we pray, so that, bound to you in lasting charity, we may bear fruit that lasts for ever. Through Christ our Lord.
