Introit
Gal. 6:14; Ps. 66:2
Nos autem gloriári opórtet in Cruce Dómnni nostri Jesu Christi: in quo est salus, vita, et resurréctio nostra: per quem salváti, et liberáti sumus, allelúja, allelúja. (Psalm) Deus misereátur nostri, et benedícat nobis: illúminet vultum suum super nos, et misereátur nostri. Gloria Patri. Nos autem...   But it behooves us to glory in the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ: in Whom is our salvation, life, and resurrection; by Whom we are saved and delivered, alleluia, alleluia. (Psalm) May God have mercy on us, and bless us; may He cause the light of His countenance to shine upon us, and may He have mercy on us. Glory be to the Father. But in behooves...

Deus, qui nos hodiérna die Exaltatiónis sanctæ Crucis ánnua solemnitáte lætificas: præsta quæsumus; ut; cujus mystérium in terra cognóvimus, ejus redemp-tiónis præmia in coelo mereámur. Per eúmdem Dóminum nostrum O God, Who dost gladden us this day by the annual solemnity of the exaltation of the Holy Cross, grant, we beseech Thee, that, as we have known its mystery on earth, we may deserve in heaven the reward which it had purchased. Through the same Jesus Christ
 
   
epistle
Phil. 2:5-11
Fratres, Hoc enim sentíte in vobis, quod et in Chrísto Jesu. Qui cum in forma Dei esset, non rapínam arbitrátus est, esse se æquálitem Deo: sed semetípsum exinanívit, formam servi accípiens, in similitúdinem hóminum factus, et hábitu invéntus ut homo. Humiliávit semetípsum, factus obédiens usque ad mortem, mortem autem crucis. Propter quod et Deus exaltávit illum: et donávit illi nomen, quod est super omne nomen:   Brethren let this mind be in you which was also in Jesus Christ: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and in habit found as a man. He humbled Himself, becoming obedient even unto death, even to the death of the cross. For which cause God also hath exalted Him, and hath given Him a Name which is above all names:
(Hic genuflectitur)   (here all kneel)
ut in nómine JESU omne genuflectátur, cæléstium, terréstrium, et infernórum: et omnis lingua confiteátur, quia Dóminus Jesus Christus in glória est Dei Patris.   that in the Name of Jesus every knee should bow,of those that are in Heaven, on earth, and under the earth and that every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father.
gradual
Phil 2:8-9
Christus factus est pro nobis obédiens usque ad mortem, mortem autem crucis. Propter quod et Deus exaltávit illum, et dedit illi nomen, quod est super omne nomen.   Christ became cbedient for us unto death: even the death of the cross. For which cause also God hath exalted Him and hath given Him a name which is above all names.
Alleluia
Allelúja, allelúja. Dulce lignum, dulces clavos, dúlcia ferens póndera: quæ sola fuísti digna sustinére Regem coelórum, et Dóminum. Allelúja.   Alleluia, alleluia. Sweet the wood, sweet the nails, sweet the load that hangs thereon: to bear up the King and Lord of Heaven nought was worthy save thou, O holy cross. Alleluia.
gospel
Jn. 12:31-36
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus turbis Judæórum: "Nunc judícium est mundi: nunc prínceps hujus mundi ejiciétur foras. Et ego si exaltátus fúero a terra, ómnia traham ad Meípsum." (Hoc autem dicébat, signíficans qua morte esset moritúrus). Respóndit Ei turba: "Nos audívimus ex lege, quia Christus manet in ætérnum: et quómodo tu dicis: Opórtet exaltári Fílium hóminis? Quis est iste Fílius hóminis?" Dixit ergo eis Jesus: "Adhuc módicum lumen in vobis est. Ambuláte dum lucem habétis, ut non vos ténebræ comprehéndant: et qui ámbulat in ténebris, nescit quo vadat. Dum lucem habétis, crédite in lucem, ut fílii lucis sitis." At that time: Jesus said to the multitude of the Jews, "Now is the judgment of the world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all things to Myself." (Now this He said, signifying what death He should die.) The multitude answered Him, "We have heard out of the law, that Christ abideth forever: and how sayest Thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? Who is the Son of man?" Jesus therefore said to them, "Yet a little while, the light is among you. Walk whilst you have the light, that the darkness overtake you not. And he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. Whilst you have the light, believe in the light; that you may be the children of light."

Preface
Preface of the Holy Cross
Vere dignum et justum est, æqum et salutáre, nos tibi semper, et ubique grátias ágere: Dómine sancte, Pater omnípotens, ætérne Deus. Qui salútem húmani géneris in ligno crucis constituísti: ut, unde mors oriebátur, inde vita resúrgeret: et qui in ligno vincébat, in ligno quoque vincerétur, per Christum Dóminum nostrum. Per quem majestátem tuam laudant Angeli, adórant Dóminatiónes, tremunt Potestátes coeli coelorúmque Virtútes, ac beáta Séraphim, sócia exsultatióne concélebrant. Cum quibus et nostras voces ut admitti júbeas deprecámur, súpplici confessióne dicéntes:   It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God Who didst establish the salvation of mankind on the tree of the Cross that whence death came, thence also life might rise again, and that he, who overcame by the tree, by the tree also might be overcome: Through Christ our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy majesty, the Dóminations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with these we entreat Thee, that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted while we say with lowly praise:
