Original text and translations
Dominus noster, Jesus Christus, in ea nocte in qua traderetur,
accepit panem et cum gratias egisset,
fregit ac dedit discipulis suis dicens:
"Accipite, comedite, hoc est corpus meum quod pro vobis traditur.
Hoc facite in mei commemorationem".
Similiter et postquam cœnavit, accepto calice,
cum gratias egisset, dedit illis, dicens:
"Bibite ex hoc omnes. Hic calix novum testamentum est in meo sanguine,
pro vobis effunditur in remissionem peccatorum.
Hoc facite quotiescunque biberitis in mei commemorationem".
Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in the same night that he was betrayed,
took bread; and, when he had given thanks,
he brake it, and gave it to his disciples, saying,
"Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you:
Do this in remembrance of me".
Likewise after supper he took the cup;
and, when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying,
"Drink ye all of this; for this is my blood of the New Testament,
which is shed for you for the remission of sins:
Do this, as oft as ye shall drink it, in remembrance of me".
