Hymnus {Doxology: NatT}
Iam lucis orto sídere,
Deum precémur súpplices,
Ut in diúrnis áctibus
Nos servet a nocéntibus.

Linguam refrénans témperet,
Ne litis horror ínsonet:
Visum fovéndo cóntegat,
Ne vanitátes háuriat.

Sint pura cordis íntima,
Absístat et vecórdia;
Carnis terat supérbiam
Potus cibíque párcitas.

Ut, cum dies abscésserit,
Noctémque sors redúxerit,
Mundi per abstinéntiam
Ipsi canámus glóriam.

Glória tibi, Dómine,
Qui natus es de Vírgine,
Cum Patre, et Sancto Spíritu,
In sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {Doxology: NatT}
Now in the sun's new dawning ray,
Lowly of heart, our God we pray
That he from harm may keep us free
In all the deeds this day shall see.

May fear of him our tongues restrain,
Lest strife unguarded speech should stain:
His favouring care our guardian be,
Lest our eyes feed on vanity.

May every heart be pure from sin
And folly find no place therein:
Scant need of food, excess denied,
Wear down in us the body's pride.

That when the light of day is gone,
And night in course shall follow on.
We, free from cares the world affords,
May chant the praise that is our Lord's.

All honor, praise and glory be,
O Jesu, Virgin-Born, to thee;
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father, and to Paraclete.
Amen

16:2 De vultu tuo iudícium meum pródeat: * óculi tui vídeant æquitátes.
16:3 Probásti cor meum, et visitásti nocte: * igne me examinásti, et non est invénta in me iníquitas.
16:4 Ut non loquátur os meum ópera hóminum: * propter verba labiórum tuórum ego custodívi vias duras.
16:5 Pérfice gressus meos in sémitis tuis: * ut non moveántur vestígia mea.
16:6 Ego clamávi, quóniam exaudísti me, Deus: * inclína aurem tuam mihi, et exáudi verba mea.
16:7 Mirífica misericórdias tuas, * qui salvos facis sperántes in te.
16:8 A resisténtibus déxteræ tuæ custódi me, * ut pupíllam óculi.
16:9 Sub umbra alárum tuárum prótege me: * a fácie impiórum qui me afflixérunt.
16:10 Inimíci mei ánimam meam circumdedérunt, ádipem suum conclusérunt: * os eórum locútum est supérbiam.
16:11 Proiciéntes me nunc circumdedérunt me: * óculos suos statuérunt declináre in terram.
16:12 Suscepérunt me sicut leo parátus ad prædam: * et sicut cátulus leónis hábitans in ábditis.
16:13 Exsúrge, Dómine, prǽveni eum, et supplánta eum: * éripe ánimam meam ab ímpio, frámeam tuam ab inimícis manus tuæ.
16:14 Dómine, a paucis de terra dívide eos in vita eórum: * de abscónditis tuis adimplétus est venter eórum.
16:14 Saturáti sunt fíliis: * et dimisérunt relíquias suas párvulis suis.

Psalm 16 [2]
16:1 Hear, O Lord, my justice: * attend to my supplication.
16:1 Give ear unto my prayer, * which proceedeth not from deceitful lips.
16:2 Let my judgment come forth from thy countenance: * let thy eyes behold the things that are equitable.
16:3 Thou hast proved my heart, and visited it by night, * thou hast tried me by fire: and iniquity hath not been found in me.
16:4 That my mouth may not speak the works of men: * for the sake of the words of thy lips, I have kept hard ways.
16:5 Perfect thou my goings in thy paths: * that my footsteps be not moved.
16:6 I have cried to thee, for thou, O God, hast heard me: * O incline thy ear unto me, and hear my words.
16:7 Shew forth thy wonderful mercies; * thou who savest them that trust in thee.
16:8 From them that resist thy right hand keep me, * as the apple of thy eye.
16:9 Protect me under the shadow of thy wings. * from the face of the wicked who have afflicted me.
16:10 My enemies have surrounded my soul: They have shut up their fat: * their mouth hath spoken proudly.
16:11 They have cast me forth, and now they have surrounded me: * they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth.
16:12 They have taken me, as a lion prepared for the prey; * and as a young lion dwelling in secret places.
16:13 Arise, O Lord, disappoint him and supplant him; * deliver my soul from the wicked one; thy sword from the enemies of thy hand.
16:14 O Lord, divide them from the few of the earth in their life: * their belly is filled from thy hidden stores.
16:14 They are full of children: * and they have left to their little ones the rest of their substance.
16:15 But as for me, I will appear before thy sight in justice: * I shall be satisfied when thy glory shall appear.
℣. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
℟. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Psalmus 17(2-25) [3]
17:2 Díligam te, Dómine, fortitúdo mea: * Dóminus firmaméntum meum, et refúgium meum, et liberátor meus.
17:3 Deus meus adiútor meus, * et sperábo in eum.
17:3 Protéctor meus, et cornu salútis meæ, * et suscéptor meus.

17:6 Dolóres inférni circumdedérunt me: * præoccupavérunt me láquei mortis.
17:7 In tribulatióne mea invocávi Dóminum, * et ad Deum meum clamávi.
17:7 Et exaudívit de templo sancto suo vocem meam: * et clamor meus in conspéctu eius, introívit in aures eius.
17:8 Commóta est, et contrémuit terra: * fundaménta móntium conturbáta sunt, et commóta sunt, quóniam irátus est eis.
17:9 Ascéndit fumus in ira eius: et ignis a fácie eius exársit: * carbónes succénsi sunt ab eo.

17:11 Et ascéndit super Chérubim, et volávit: * volávit super pennas ventórum.
17:12 Et pósuit ténebras latíbulum suum, in circúitu eius tabernáculum eius: * tenebrósa aqua in núbibus áëris.
17:13 Præ fulgóre in conspéctu eius nubes transiérunt, * grando et carbónes ignis.
17:14 Et intónuit de cælo Dóminus, et Altíssimus dedit vocem suam: * grando et carbónes ignis.
17:15 Et misit sagíttas suas, et dissipávit eos: * fúlgura multiplicávit, et conturbávit eos.
17:16 Et apparuérunt fontes aquárum, * et reveláta sunt fundaménta orbis terrárum:
17:16 Ab increpatióne tua, Dómine, * ab inspiratióne spíritus iræ tuæ.
17:17 Misit de summo, et accépit me: * et assúmpsit me de aquis multis.
17:18 Erípuit me de inimícis meis fortíssimis, et ab his qui odérunt me: * quóniam confortáti sunt super me.
17:19 Prævenérunt me in die afflictiónis meæ: * et factus est Dóminus protéctor meus.
17:20 Et edúxit me in latitúdinem: * salvum me fecit, quóniam vóluit me.
17:21 Et retríbuet mihi Dóminus secúndum iustítiam meam: * et secúndum puritátem mánuum meárum retríbuet mihi:
17:22 Quia custodívi vias Dómini, * nec ímpie gessi a Deo meo.
17:23 Quóniam ómnia iudícia eius in conspéctu meo: * et iustítias eius non répuli a me.
17:24 Et ero immaculátus cum eo: * et observábo me ab iniquitáte mea.
17:25 Et retríbuet mihi Dóminus secúndum iustítiam meam: * et secúndum puritátem mánuum meárum in conspéctu oculórum eius.

Psalm 17(2-25) [3]
17:2 I will love thee, O Lord, my strength: * The Lord is my firmament, my refuge, and my deliverer.
17:3 My God is my helper, * and in him will I put my trust.
17:3 My protector, and the horn of my salvation, * and my support.
17:4 Praising, I will call upon the Lord: * and I shall be saved from my enemies.
17:5 The sorrows of death surrounded me: * and the torrents of iniquity troubled me.
17:6 The sorrows of hell encompassed me: * and the snares of death prevented me.
17:7 In my affliction I called upon the Lord, * and I cried to my God:
17:7 And he heard my voice from his holy temple: * and my cry before him came into his ears.
17:8 The earth shook and trembled: * the foundations of the mountains were troubled and were moved, because he was angry with them.
17:9 There went up a smoke in his wrath: and a fire flamed from his face: * coals were kindled by it.
17:10 He bowed the heavens, and came down, * and darkness was under his feet.
17:11 And he ascended upon the cherubim, and he flew; * he flew upon the wings of the winds.
17:12 And he made darkness his covert, his pavilion round about him: * dark waters in the clouds of the air.
17:13 At the brightness that was before him the clouds passed, * hail and coals of fire.
17:14 And the Lord thundered from heaven, * and the Highest gave his voice: * hail and coals of fire.
17:15 And he sent forth his arrows, and he scattered them: * he multiplied lightnings, and troubled them.
17:16 Then the fountains of waters appeared, * and the foundations of the world were discovered:
17:16 At thy rebuke, O Lord, * at the blast of the spirit of thy wrath.
17:17 He sent from on high, and took me: * and received me out of many waters.
17:18 He delivered me from my strongest enemies, and from them that hated me: * for they were too strong for me.
17:19 They prevented me in the day of my affliction: * and the Lord became my protector.
17:20 And he brought me forth into a large place: * he saved me, because he was well pleased with me.
17:21 And the Lord will reward me according to my justice; * and will repay me according to the cleanness of my hands:
17:22 Because I have kept the ways of the Lord; * and have not done wickedly against my God.
17:23 For all his judgments are in my sight: * and his justices I have not put away from me.
17:24 And I shall be spotless with him: * and shall keep myself from my iniquity.
17:25 And the Lord will reward me according to my justice: * and according to the cleanness of my hands before his eyes.
℣. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
℟. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Martyrologium {anticip}
April 14th 2018, the 28th day of the Moon, were born to better life:

On the morrow we keep the feast of the holy martyr Justin, the admirable philosopher. He had presented to the Emperors Marcus Antoninus Verus and Lucius Aurelius born Modus his second book in defence of our religion, and was then earnestly spreading the same at Rome by his disputations when he was accused of Christianity through the devices of Crescens the Cynic, whose life and infamous manners he had rebuked, and for a reward of his faithful speaking he received upon this day the crown of martyrdom.
Likewise at Rome, upon the Appian Way, under the Emperor Alexander and the Prefect Almachius, the holy martyrs Tiburtius, Valerian, and Maximus. Tiburtius and Valerian had been converted to Christ by the exhortations of blessed Cicely and baptized by the holy Pope Urban, and for the confession of their faith were cudgelled and beheaded. Maximus was a chamberlain of the Prefect, and was moved to believe in Christ by beholding the steadfastness of Tiburtius and Valerian, and being confirmed in the same faith by an apparition of angels, he was lashed to death with scourges loaded with lead.
At Terni, the holy martyr Proculus, Bishop of that see, [about the year 306.]
Likewise the holy Virgins and martyrs Domnina and her Companions, [about the year 272.]
At Alexandria, [in the fifth century,] the holy martyr Thomais.
On the same day, the holy martyr Ardalion. He was a player, and was making a mock upon the stage of the sacred rites of the Christians, when he was converted all of a sudden, and attested his conversion not only by his words but also by his blood, [about the year 300.]
At Lyon, the holy Confessor Lambert, Bishop of that see, [in the year 688.]
At Alexandria, the holy Abbot Fronto [—in the desert of Nitria, he had 70 monks—] famous for the holiness of his life, and for his miracles, [in the reign of Antonine, about the year 151.]
At Rome, [in the sixth century,] holy Abundius, watchman of the Church of St. Peter.
℣. And elsewhere many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℣. Precious in the sight of the Lord
℟. Is the death of his saints.
Holy Mary and all the Saints, intercede for us with the Lord, our God, so that we may merit His help and salvation, who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
℟. Amen.

Ex Régula Sancti Patri Nostri Benedícti. Caput 59: De fíliis nobílium aut páuperum qui offerúntur

Si quis forte de nobílibus offert fílium suum Deo in monastério, si ipse puer minor ætáte est, paréntes eius fáciant petitiónem quam supra díximus, et cum oblatióne ipsam petitiónem et manum púeri invólvant in palla altáris, et sic eum ófferant. De rebus autem suis aut in præsénti petitióne promíttant sub iureiurándo, quia numquam per se, numquam per sufféctam persónam nec quólibet modo ei aliquándo áliquid dant aut tríbuunt occasiónem habéndi; vel certe si hoc fácere nolúerint et áliquid ófferre volunt in elemósinam monastério pro mercéde sua, fáciant ex rebus quas dare volunt monastério donatiónem, reserváto sibi, si ita volúerint usum fructum. Atque ita ómnia obstruántur ut nulla suspício remáneat púero per quam decéptus períre possit - quod absit - quod experiménto didícimus. Simíliter autem et pauperióres fáciant. Qui vero ex toto nihil habent, simplíciter petitiónem fáciant et cum oblatióne ófferant fílium suum coram téstibus.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
℟. Deo grátias.

Regula
The Rule of our Holy Father Benedict. Chapter 59: Concerning Noblemen’s Sons and Poor Men’s Sons Who Are Offered

If by chance anyone from among the nobility offers his son to God in the monastery, if the boy himself be in infancy let his parents make the petition that we mentioned above; and together with an oblation let them fold that petition and the boy’s hand in the altar cloth and so let them offer him. And concerning his property either let them promise on oath in the present petition that never of themselves, never through any deputy, nor in any way whatever will they give anything to him at any time, or afford him opportunity of possessing: or else, at the least, if they are unwilling to do this and wish to offer something as alms to the monastery so as to obtain merit, let them make a donation from the property that they wish to give to the monastery, having reserved to themselves if they so wish a life interest in it. Thus then let every precaution be taken, so that there may not linger in the boy’s mind any notions of possession, by which notions he might, to his ruin, be deceived, as experience has shewn to be possible, but which God forbid. Let those also who are poorer act similarly: but let those who have nothing at all simply make petition and with the oblation offer their boy before witnesses.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.
