Invitatory {Antiphon from the Psalter for the day of the week}
Ant. The Lord it is who made us * Come, let us adore Him.

Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
Ant. The Lord it is who made us * Come, let us adore Him.
For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. For the Lord will not cast off his people: for in his hand are all the ends of the earth, and the heights of the mountains are his.
Ant. Come, let us adore Him.
For the sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. (genuflect) Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us: For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Ant. The Lord it is who made us * Come, let us adore Him.
Today if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts: As in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness: where your fathers tempted me, they proved me, and saw my works.
Ant. Come, let us adore Him.
Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart. And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.
Ant. The Lord it is who made us * Come, let us adore Him.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Now, from the slumbers of the night arising,
Chant we the holy psalmody of David,
Hymns to our Master, with a voice concordant,
Sweetly intoning.

So may our Monarch pitifully hear us,
That we may merit with his saints to enter
Mansions eternal, therewithal possessing
Joy beatific.

This be our portion, God forever blessed,
Father eternal, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Whose is the glory, which through all creation
Ever resoundeth.
Amen.

2 Quóniam invenítur ab his qui non tentant illum, appáret autem eis qui fidem habent in illum.
3 Pervérsæ enim cogitatiónes séparant a Deo, probáta autem virtus córripit insipiéntes;

Lesson from the book of Wisdom
Wis 1:1-4
1 Love justice, you that are the judges of the earth. Think of the Lord in goodness, and seek him in simplicity of heart.
2 For he is found by them that tempt him not: and he showeth himself to them that have faith in him.
3 For perverse thoughts separate from God: and his power, when it is tried, reproveth the unwise:
4 For wisdom will not enter into a malicious soul, nor dwell in a body subject to sins.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. God possessed me in the beginning, before He made the earth, before He created the depths, before He caused the fountains of water to spring.
* Before the mountains were settled, before there were any hills, did the Lord beget me.
V. When He prepared the heavens, I was there with Him, ordering all things.
R. Before the mountains were settled, before there were any hills, did the Lord beget me.

Sap 1:5-8
5 Spíritus enim sanctus disciplínæ effúgiet fictum et áuferet se a cogitatiónibus quæ sunt sine intelléctu et corripiétur a superveniénte iniquitáte.
6 Benígnus est enim spíritus sapiéntiæ et non liberábit malédicum a lábiis suis; quóniam renum illíus testis est Deus et cordis illíus scrutátor est verus, et linguæ eius audítor:
7 Quóniam spíritus Dómini replévit orbem terrárum, et hoc quod cóntinet ómnia, sciéntiam habet vocis.
8 Propter hoc qui lóquitur iníqua non potest latére, nec prætériet illum corrípiens iudícium.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Gyrum cæli circuívi sola, et in flúctibus maris ambulávi, in omni gente et in omni pópulo primátum ténui:

V. Ego in altíssimis hábito, et thronus meus in colúmna nubis.
R. Superbórum et sublímium colla própria virtúte calcávi.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.

Wis 1:5-8
5 For the Holy Spirit of discipline will flee from the deceitful, and will withdraw himself from thoughts that are without understanding, and he shall not abide when iniquity cometh in.
6 For the spirit of wisdom is benevolent, and will not acquit the evil speaker from his lips: for God is witness of his reins, and he is a true searcher of his heart, and a hearer of his tongue.
7 For the spirit of the Lord hath filled the whole world: and that, which containeth all things, hath knowledge of the voice.
8 Therefore he that speaketh unjust things cannot be hid, neither shall the chastising judgment pass him by.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I alone compassed the circuit of heaven, and walked on the waves of the sea. In every nation and in every people, I held the first place.
* In the greatness of my strength have I trodden under my feet the necks of such as be haughty and proud.
V. I dwell in the highest places, and my throne is in a cloudy pillar.
R. In the greatness of my strength have I trodden under my feet the necks of such as be haughty and proud.

Sap 1:9-11
9 In cogitatiónibus enim ímpii interrogátio erit, sermónum autem illíus audítio ad Deum véniet ad correptiónem iniquitátum illíus;
10 Quóniam auris zeli audit ómnia, et tumúltus murmuratiónum non abscondétur.
11 Custodíte ergo vos a murmuratióne, quæ nihil prodest, et a detractióne párcite linguæ, quóniam sermo obscúrus in vácuum non ibit, os autem quod mentítur occídit ánimam.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Emítte, Dómine, sapiéntiam de sede magnitúdinis tuæ, ut mecum sit et mecum labóret:
* Ut sciam, quid accéptum sit coram te omni témpore.
V. Da mihi, Dómine, sédium tuárum assistrícem sapiéntiam.

Reading 3
Wis 1:9-11
9 For inquisition shall be made into the thoughts of the ungodly: and the hearing of his words shall come to God, to the chastising of his iniquities.
10 For the ear of jealousy heareth all things, and the tumult of murmuring shall not be hid.
11 Keep yourselves therefore from murmuring, which profiteth nothing, and refrain your tongue from detraction, for an obscure speech shall not go for nought: and the mouth that belieth, killeth the soul.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O send out wisdom from the throne of thy glory, O Lord, to be with me, and to labour with me,
* That I may know at all times what is pleasing unto thee.

9:13 For requiring their blood he hath remembered them: * he hath not forgotten the cry of the poor.
9:14 Have mercy on me, O Lord: * see my humiliation which I suffer from my enemies.
9:15 Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death, * that I may declare all thy praises in the gates of the daughter of Sion.

9:16 Their foot hath been taken * in the very snare which they hid.
9:17 The Lord shall be known when he executeth judgments: * the sinner hath been caught in the works of his own hands.

Magnus iustítiæ splendor, quæ áliis pótius nata quam sibi, communitátem et societátem nostram ádiuvat, excelsitátem tenet, ut suo iudício ómnia subiécta hábeat, opem áliis ferat, pecúniam cónferat, offícia non ábnuat, perícula suscípiat aliéna. Quis non cúperet hanc virtútis arcem tenére, nisi prima avarítia infirmáret atque inflécteret tantæ virtútis vigórem? Etenim dum augére opes, aggregáre pecúnias, occupáre terras possessiónibus cúpimus, præstáre divítiis; iustítiæ formam exúimus, beneficéntiam commúnem amíttimus.

Reading 4
From the Book of St. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, "On Offices."
Bk. i. c. 28
Great is the glory of justice. She liveth for others rather than for herself. By her our commonwealth and fellowship are holpen. She holdeth such a pre-eminence that all things are subject unto her judgment. She helpeth others. She giveth wealth. She refuseth not to labour. She taketh upon her the dangers of others. Who would not desire to hold this castle of power and courage, if the covetousness of our first parents had not weakened and distorted the strength of our nerve But so it is, that, while we are fain to increase wealth, to put by money, to add lands to our possessions, or to make show of our abundance, we put off the image of justice, and lose charity toward our brethren.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Give me wisdom, O Lord, that sitteth by thy throne, and reject me not from among thy children.
* For I am thy servant and son of thine handmaid.
V. O send her out from the throne of thy glory, to be with me and to labour with me.
R. For I am thy servant and son of thine handmaid.
V. Iube, domne, benedícere.

Quanta autem iustítia sit, ex hoc intélligi potest, quod nec locis, nec persónis, nec tempóribus excípitur, quæ étiam hóstibus reservátur: ut si constitútus sit cum hoste aut locus aut dies prǽlio, advérsus iustítiam putétur aut loco præveníre aut témpore. Interest enim utrum áliquis pugna áliqua et conflíctu gravi capiátur, an superióre grátia, vel áliquo evéntu. Si ergo in bello iustítia valet, quanto magis in pace servánda est?

How far-spreading is the field of justice appeareth by this, that there is excepted therefrom no place, person, or time, nay, she hath to do even as regards enemies, for if one be agreed with his enemy of a certain place, or day for battle, it should be deemed unjust to fall on him beforehand, at some other place, or time. For it is a very different thing, whether one get the better of another in a hard fight, or by skill, or by accident. If therefore in war justice hath place, how much more is she to be observed in time of peace
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
* A good understanding have all they that do His commandments. His praise endureth for ever.
V. Love is the keeping of her laws, for all wisdom is the fear of the Lord.

Fundaméntum ergo est iustítiæ fides. Iustórum enim corda meditántur fidem: et qui se iustus accúsat, iustítiam supra fidem cóllocat. Nam tunc iustítia eius appáret, si vera fateátur. Dénique et Dóminus per Isaíam: Ecce, inquit, mitto lápidem in fundaméntum Sion: id est, Christum in fundaméntum Ecclésiæ. Fides enim ómnium Christus: Ecclésia autem quædam forma iustítiæ est, commúne ius ómnium: in commúne orat, in commúne operátur, in commúne tentátur. Dénique qui seípsum sibi ábnegat, ipse iustus, ipse dignus Christo est. Ideo et Paulus fundaméntum pósuit Christum, ut supra eum ópera iustítiæ locarémus, quia fides fundaméntum est.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

R. Verbum iníquum et dolósum longe fac a me, Dómine:
* Divítias et paupertátem ne déderis mihi, sed tantum víctui meo tríbue necessária.

Honour is the foundation of justice. The thoughts in the hearts of just men are honourable thoughts and when the just man accuseth himself, it is honour that bringeth him to that just deed. Then is his justice made manifest by his honourable avowal. The Lord saith by Isaiah " Behold, I lay in Zion a foundation-stone" xxviii. 16, that is to say, He giveth Christ unto the Church to be her foundation. Christ is the true honour for all men, and the Church is as it were a figure of justice, being a commonwealth wherein all have rights, and which worketh as one, and suffereth as one. Whosoever denieth himself, the same is just, and worthy of Christ. Therefore also Paul saith " Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ " I Cor. iii. 11 , and upon that foundation is it, that every building of justice must be raised. For the spirit of Christ is the true spirit of honour which is the foundation whereon justice resteth.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Lord, remove far from me vanity and lies.
* Give me neither poverty nor riches, but feed me with food convenient for me.
V. Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die.
R. Give me neither poverty nor riches, but feed me with food convenient for me.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Give me neither poverty nor riches, but feed me with food convenient for me.

9:26 Auferúntur iudícia tua a fácie eius: * ómnium inimicórum suórum dominábitur.
9:27 Dixit enim in corde suo: * Non movébor a generatióne in generatiónem sine malo.

Ant. Why, O Lord, * hast thou retired afar off?
Psalm 9(22-32) [7]
9:22 Why, O Lord, hast thou retired afar off? * why dost thou slight us in our wants, in the time of trouble?
9:23 Whilst the wicked man is proud, the poor is set on fire: * they are caught in the counsels which they devise.
9:24 For the sinner is praised in the desires of his soul: * and the unjust man is blessed.
9:25 The sinner hath provoked the Lord, * according to the multitude of his wrath he will not seek him.
9:26 God is not before his eyes: * his ways are filthy at all times.
9:26 Thy judgments are removed from his sight: * he shall rule over all his enemies.
9:27 For he hath said in his heart: * I shall not be moved from generation to generation, and shall be without evil.
9:28 His mouth is full of cursing, and of bitterness, and of deceit: * under his tongue are labour and sorrow.
9:29 He sitteth in ambush with the rich, in private places, * that he may kill the innocent.
9:30 His eyes are upon the poor man: * he lieth in wait, in secret, like a lion in his den.
9:30 He lieth in ambush, that he may catch the poor man: * so catch the poor, whilst he draweth him to him.
9:31 In his net he will bring him down, * he will crouch and fall, when he shall have power over the poor.
9:32 For he hath said in his heart: God hath forgotten, * he hath turned away his face, not to see to the end.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

9:35 Vides quóniam tu labórem et dolórem consíderas: * ut tradas eos in manus tuas.
9:35 Tibi derelíctus est pauper: * órphano tu eris adiútor.
9:36 Cóntere brácchium peccatóris et malígni: * quærétur peccátum illíus, et non inveniétur.
9:37 Dóminus regnábit in ætérnum, et in sǽculum sǽculi: * períbitis, gentes, de terra illíus.
9:38 Desidérium páuperum exaudívit Dóminus: * præparatiónem cordis eórum audívit auris tua.

9:34 Wherefore hath the wicked provoked God? * for he hath said in his heart: He will not require it.
9:35 Thou seest it, for thou considerest labour and sorrow: * that thou mayst deliver them into thy hands.
9:35 To thee is the poor man left: * thou wilt be a helper to the orphan.
9:36 Break thou the arm of the sinner and of the malignant: * his sin shall be sought, and shall not be found.
9:37 The Lord shall reign to eternity, yea, for ever and ever: * ye Gentiles shall perish from his land.
9:38 The Lord hath heard the desire of the poor: * thy ear hath heard the preparation of their heart.
9:39 To judge for the fatherless and for the humble, * that man may no more presume to magnify himself upon earth.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

10:7 Pluet super peccatóres láqueos: * ignis, et sulphur, et spíritus procellárum pars cálicis eórum.
10:8 Quóniam iustus Dóminus, et iustítias diléxit: * æquitátem vidit vultus eius.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.

10:3 For, lo, the wicked have bent their bow: they have prepared their arrows in the quiver, * to shoot in the dark the upright of heart.
10:4 For they have destroyed the things which thou hast made: * but what has the just man done?
10:5 The Lord is in his holy temple, * the Lord’s throne is in heaven.

Non óculi scribárum et pharisæórum, qui corpus tantum Dómini vidére; sed illi beáti óculi, qui eius possunt cognóscere sacraménta, de quibus dícitur: Et revelásti ea párvulis.

From the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 10:23-37
At that time, Jesus said unto His disciples: Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see. For I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them. And so on.

Homily by the Venerable Bede, Priest at Jarrow.
Bk. iii. ch. 43 on Luke x.
Blessed were the eyes not of Scribes and Pharisees, which saw but the Body of the Lord, but those eyes, eyes blessed indeed, which were able to see those things whereof it is written "Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes." Blessed are the eyes of those little ones unto whom it seemeth good in the eyes of the Son to reveal Himself and the Father also. Abraham rejoiced to see the day of Christ and he saw it, and was glad. John viii. 56. Isaiah, and Micah, and many among the Prophets, saw the glory of the Lord, wherefore also they be called Seers, but all they beheld it and hailed it afar off, seeing but as through a glass, darkly. 1 Cor. xiii. 12.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O Lord, Father and God of my life, leave me not to evil counsels; give me not a proud look, but turn away from me an haughty mind, O Lord turn away from me concupiscence,
* And give me not over unto an impudent and froward mind, O Lord!
V. Leave me not, O Lord, lest mine ignorance increase, and my sins abound.
R. And give me not over unto an impudent and froward mind, O Lord.

Otherwise were the Apostles, who saw the Lord face to Face, eating with Him, and learning from Him by asking whatsoever they listed. For them there was no need to be taught by Angels, or the shifting fabric of visions. They whom Luke doth call Prophets and kings, Matthew nameth as "Prophets and righteous men" xiii. 17. Righteous men are indeed mighty kings, who know how to lord it over their own rebellious temptations, instead of falling under them to become their slaves.

Fit reverentia, secundum consuetudinem
Et laudámus nomen tuum in sǽculum, * et in sǽculum sǽculi.

Dignáre, Dómine, die isto * sine peccáto nos custodíre.
Miserére nostri, Dómine, * miserére nostri.
Fiat misericórdia tua, Dómine, super nos, * quemádmodum sperávimus in te.
In te, Dómine, sperávi: * non confúndar in ætérnum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 9
"And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted Him, saying Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" This lawyer, who stood up to ask the Lord a tempting question touching eternal life, took the subject of his asking, as I think, from the words which the Lord had just uttered, when He said "Rejoice, because your names are written in heaven". But his attempt was a proof of the truth of that which the Lord immediately added "I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes!"
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.


Te Deum
We praise thee, O God, * we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.
All the earth doth worship thee, * the Father everlasting.
To thee all Angels cry aloud, * the Heavens, and all the Powers therein.
To thee Cherubim and Seraphim * continually do cry.

(bow head) Holy, Holy, Holy * Lord God of Sabaoth;

Heaven and earth are full * of the Majesty of thy glory.
The glorious company of the Apostles * praise thee.
The goodly fellowship of the Prophets * praise thee.
The noble army of Martyrs * praise thee.
The holy Church throughout all the world * doth acknowledge thee;
The Father, * of an infinite Majesty.
Thine honourable, true, * and only Son;
Also the Holy Ghost, * the Comforter.

During the following verse all make a profound bow:
When thou tookest upon thee to deliver man, * thou didst not abhor the Virgin's womb.

When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death, * thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God, * in the glory of the Father.
We believe that thou shalt come * to be our Judge.

Kneel for the following verse
We therefore pray thee, help thy servants, * whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious Blood.

Make them to be numbered with thy Saints, * in glory everlasting.
O Lord, save thy people, * and bless thine heritage.
Govern them, * and lift them up for ever.
Day by day * we magnify thee;

During the following verse, by local custom, all make a profound bow.
And we worship thy Name * ever, world without end.

Vouchsafe, O Lord, to keep us * this day without sin.
O Lord, have mercy upon us, * have mercy upon us.
O Lord, let thy mercy lighten upon us, * as our trust is in thee.
O Lord, in thee have I trusted, * let me never be confounded.
