Approved Votive Masses -- for All Hallows' Hall



Called to be Saints,(ICor1:2) walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; . (Ep 4:1-2) God hath chosen us in Christ, before the foundation of the world that we should be holy and without blame before him in love. (Ep1:4 ) PSALM: O sing unto the Lord a new song let the congregation of saints praise him. Glory be....


O God who, in the blessed communion of thy faithful saints, hast surrounded us with so great a cloud of witnesses & hast vouchsafed to us a vision of a Hall dedicated to their honor and to thy Glory, where devout and splendid worship would be offered and where godly instruction would be given, of thy mercy, grant to us, we beseech thee, such fulfillment of that vision, as may be good in thy sight through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost: one God, world without end..


Phillipians 3:8
I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
9: And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
10: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
11: If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
12: Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13: Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14: I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

4: 4: Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
5: Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7: And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9: Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.


Psalm 119
WHEREWITHAL shall a young man cleanse his way? * even by ruling himself after thy word.
10 With my whole heart have I sought thee; * O let me not go wrong out of thy commandments.
11 Thy word have I hid within my heart, * that I should not sin against thee.

Psalm 78.

HEAR my law, O my people; * incline your ears unto the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth in a parable; * I will declare hard sentences of old;
3 Which we have heard and known, * and such as our fathers have told us;
4 That we should not hide them from the children of the generations to come; * but to show the honour of the LORD, his mighty and wonderful works that he hath done.
5 He made a covenant with Jacob, and gave Israel a law, * which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children;
6 That their posterity might know it, * and the children which were yet unborn;
7 To the intent that when they came up, * they might show their children the same;
8 That they might put their trust in God; * and not to forget the works of God, but to keep his commandments;

25 He rained down manna also upon them for to eat, * and gave them food from heaven.
26 So man did eat angels' food; * for he sent them meat enough.

35 And they remembered that God was their strength, * and that the High God was their redeemer.

John 15

When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
16: And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
17: And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
18: And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
19: So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
20: But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
21: Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.


Isaiah 41:9

Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.
10: Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

20: That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.

Preface of All Saints


O God, in a spirit of humility and with a contrite heart, we offer unto thee these gifts

[ these prayers ] in thanksgiving for the Redemption they bespeak

and for the vision thou hast vouchsafed of a hall

whereby the fruits of that most blessed redemption might be realized and thy lambs be fed: that as we have received the traditions from our fathers,

so our sons might be formed in holiness: wisdom, knowledge & understanding,

prudence & justice, temperance & fortitude, faith hope & charity,

that so the holy chain of tradition might not be broken,

that what our sons receive they might teach to their sons,

that souls be saved & sanctified, thy blessed Saints honored & thy holy Name glorified.
O God most Holy, Lord Most Mighty, unless thou dost build the Hall, our labor is but lost. Let us find out a place for thy hall;

raise up for us benefactors, teachers and students. For, we are nothing and have nothing save what thy love doth grant to us.

Help us, we pray thee, to desire nothing save what thou dost will,

and to do nothing save for thy glory.

And, forasmuch as without thee we are not able to please thee,
mercifully grant that thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts,
that we may both perceive and know what things we ought to do
and may have grace and power faithfully to fulfill the same,

through Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the same Holy Spirit, One God unto ages of ages,


A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35: By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.


Grant O merciful Lord, the intercession of Blessed Mary of (Blessed ___ whose feast we honor today )& all thy saints, that this reception of thy holy sacraments may be a succour in our infirmity, an aid in our necessities & a foretaste of the fulfillment of thy will in the vision of All Hallows Hall through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, to whom with thee and the Holy Ghost be all honor and glory world without end.


(for use on the Saturday before the Feast of Christ the King & at other times as may be approved)


Rejoice we all in the Lord [keeping Feast day] in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary Queen of all Saints: [ in whose solemnity] the angels rejoice and glorify the Son of God for the Lord God said unto the serpent, I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Psalm 87:Yea, of Sion it shall be reported, this one and that one were born in her; * and the Most High shall stablish her. 6 The LORD shall record it, when he writeth up the peoples; * lo, in Sion were they born. 7 The singers also and trumpeters shall make answer: * All my fresh springs are in thee. Glory be....


Grant O Lord, we beseech thee, that we who honor the Blessed Virgin Mary as Queen of All Saints, may so follow her counsel, doing whatsoever our blessed Lord commands in this life, and fighting manfully against the Devil and his deceptions, that, with her and all thy Saints, we may finally attain to glory in heaven at the Marriage feast of the Lamb , through Jesus Christ thy Son our lord who liveth & reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost world without end.


Rev 12:1

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

2: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

3: And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4: And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

5: And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

6: And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

7: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8: And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9: And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10: And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.


Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. Blessed art thou O Holy Queen, who didst bear in thy womb, Christ the Divine Lord and now, with all his Saints, dost reign with him in Glory.


John 2:1

There was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
2: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3: And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
4: Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
5: His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
6: And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
7: Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
8: And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
9: When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10: And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
11: This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.


Sprung from the royal line, Mary shineth forth, through whose prayers we with heart and soul devoutly ask for succor.


Receive O Lord the gifts of thy Church rejoicing and through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary Queen of All Saints, hear the prayers of thy people, let us find out a place for a hall, where, through splendid worship, godly fellowship and sound teaching thy Name may be glorified, thy saints honored and souls saved and sanctified through Jesus Christ our Lord
