I julens vigiliemesse fra Peterskirken ble julens Kalenda som vanlig sunget ved starten av messen – fremførelsen under er fra 2012.

I programmet for messen (som man finner her) står hele den latinske teksten:

Octavo Kalendas ianuarii. Luna vicesima secunda.
Innumeris transactis sæculis a creatione mundi, quando in principio Deus creavit cælum et terram et hominem formavit ad imaginem suam;
permultis etiam sæculis, ex quo post diluvium Altissimus in nubibus arcum posuerat, signum fæderis et pacis;
a migratione Abrahæ, patris nostri in fide, de Ur Chaldæorum sæculo vigesimo primo;
ab egressu populi Israel de Ægypto, Moyse duce, sæculo decimo tertio;
ab unctione David in regem, anno circiter millesimo;
hebdomada sexagesima quinta, iuxta Danielis prophetiam;
Olympiade centesima nonagesima quarta;
ab Urbe condita anno septingentesimo quinquagesimo secundo;
anno imperii Cæsaris Octaviani Augusti quadragesimo secundo;
toto Orbe in pace composito, Iesus Christus, æternus Deus æternique Patris Filius, mundum volens adventu suo piissimo consecrare, de Spiritu Sancto conceptus, novemque post conceptionem decursis mensibus, in Bethlehem Iudæ nascitur ex Maria Virgine factus homo:

Nativitas Domini nostri Iesu Christi secundum carnem.

Today, the twenty-fifth day of December,
unknown ages from the time when God created the heavens and the earth
and then formed man and woman in his own image.
Several thousand years after the flood,
when God made the rainbow shine forth as a sign of the covenant.
Twenty-one centuries from the time of Abraham and Sarah;
thirteen centuries after Moses led the people of Israel out of Egypt.
One thousand years from the anointing of David as king;
in the sixty-fifth week according to the prophecy of Daniel.
In the one hundred and ninety-fourth Olympiad;
the seven hundred and fifty-second year from the foundation of the city of Rome.
The forty-second year of the reign of Octavian Augustus;
the whole world being at peace,
Jesus Christ, eternal God and Son of the eternal Father,
desiring to sanctify the world by his most merciful coming,
being conceived by the Holy Spirit,
and nine months having passed since his conception,
was born in Bethlehem of Judea of the Virgin Mary.
Today is the nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ according to the flesh.
