Treatise on the Mass (from the Stowe Missal), Part 02

Tocbal in cailich iarn a landiurug, quando canitur Oblata, is foraithmet gene Crist insin [ocus] tre airde a indocbale (/ a indocbale tre airde) ocus firto.
Quando canitur: Accepit Iesus panem, tanaurnat in sacart fat(h)ri du aithrigi dia pecthaib; atnopuir Deo; ocus slecthith in popul: ocus ni taet guth isson, ar na tar masca in sacardd; ar issed a thechta ar na rascra a menme contra Deum, cene canas in liachtso. Is de is Periculosa Oratio a nomen.

The elevation of the chalice, after the full uncovering thereof, quando canitur Oblata (when Oblata is chanted), that is a memorial of the birth of Christ and of His exaltation through signs and miracles.
Quando canitur: Accepit Iesus panem (When is chanted: 'Jesus took bread'), the priest bows himself down thrice to repent of his sins. He offers them [i.e. the bread and chalice] to God, and the people prostrates: and there comes not a sound then, that it disturb not the priest, for it is his duty that his mind separate not contra Deum ('against', i.e. from, God) whist he chants this Lection. It is from this that Periculosa Oratio (the Most Dangerous Prayer) is its nomen (name).
The three steps which the ordained man stepps backwards and which he steps in return, that is the triad wherein sins any person, to wit, in word, in thought, in deed; and that is the triad through which he is renewed iterum (again) and by which he is moved to the Body of Christ.

The examination wherewith the priest examines the chalice and the Host, and the assault which the fraction implies, a figure of the insults and of the stripes and of the capture [of Christ] (is) that.
The Host upon the paten, the Body of Christ upon the tree of the Cross.
The Breaking (i.e. Fraction) on the paten, the Body of Christ being broken with nails upon the Cross.
The meeting whereby the two halves come together after the Breaking, a figure of the wholeness of Christ's Body after His resurrection.
The submersion with which the other half is submerged, a figure of the submersion of the Body of Christ in His Blood, after the wounding on the Cross.
The part that is taken from the bottom of the half which is wont to be on the left hand, a figure of the wounding with the spear in the armpit of the right side; for westwards the face of Christ was in Cruce, id est, contra civitatem (on the Cross; that is, towards the city), and it is eastward the face of Longinus was; what was left for this person was right for Christ.
