The Last Gospel is the name given to the Prologue of St. John's Gospel (John 1:1–14) when read as part of the concluding rites in the Tridentine Mass. The Prologue speaks on Jesus Christ as the Logos and on the Incarnation. The Last Gospel began as a private devotional practice on the priest's part, but was gradually absorbed into the rubrics of the Mass. Immediately after the blessing the priest goes to the Gospel side of the altar. The Last Gospel was not included in the New Rite of Mass.
