Jeremiah 1 : 5, 9 and Luke 1 : 76
Priusquam te formarem in utero, novi te : et antequam exires de ventre, sanctificavi te.
Response : Misit Dominus manum suam, et tetigit os meum, et dixit mihi.
Response : Tu, puer, Propheta Altissimi vocaberis : praeibis ante Dominum parare vias ejus. Alleluja.
Before I formed you in the bowels of your mother, I knew you, and before you came forth out of the womb, I sanctified you.
Response : The Lord put forth His hand, and touched my mouth, and said to me.
Response : You, child, shall be called the Prophet of the Highest, you shall go before the Lord to prepare His ways. Alleluia.
