Invitatory {Antiphon from the Common or Feast}
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
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, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
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. O come, let us worship.
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, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
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. O come, let us worship.
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, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Iste Conféssor Dómini sacrátus,
Festa plebs cuius celébrat per orbem,
Hac die lætus méruit suprémos
Laudis honóres.

Qui pius, prudens, húmilis, pudícus,
Sóbrius, castus fuit et quiétus,
Vita dum præsens vegetávit eius
Córporis artus.

Ad sacram cuius túmulum frequénter
Membra languéntem modo sanitáti,
Quólibet morbo fúerint graváta,
Restituúntur.

Unde nunc noster chorus in honórem
Ipsius, hymnum canit hunc libénter:
Ut piis eius méritis iuvémur
Omne per ævum.

Sit salus illi, decus atque virtus,
Qui supra cæli résidens cacúmen,
Tótius mundi máchinam gubérnat
Trinus et unus.
Amen.

48:11 He shall not see destruction, when he shall see the wise dying: * the senseless and the fool shall perish together:
48:11 And they shall leave their riches to strangers: * and their sepulchres shall be their houses for ever.

Psalmus 48(14-21) [6]

Psalm 48(14-21) [6]
48:14 This way of theirs is a stumbling block to them: * and afterwards they shall delight in their mouth.
48:15 They are laid in hell like sheep: * death shall feed upon them.
48:15 And the just shall have dominion over them in the morning; * and their help shall decay in hell from their glory.
48:16 But God will redeem my soul from the hand of hell, * when he shall receive me.
48:17 Be not thou afraid, when a man shall be made rich, * and when the glory of his house shall be increased.
48:18 For when he shall die he shall take nothing away; * nor shall his glory descend with him.
48:19 For in his lifetime his soul will be blessed: * and he will praise thee when thou shalt do well to him.
48:20 He shall go in to the generations of his fathers: * and he shall never see light.
48:21 Man when he was in honour did not understand: * he hath been compared to senseless beasts, and made like to them.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Franciscus, Gandiæ dux quartus, Ioánne Borgia et Ioánna Aragónia Ferdinándi Catholici nepte génitus, post puerílem ætátem inter domesticos mira innocéntia et pietáte transactam, in aula primum Cároli quinti Cæsaris, mox in Catalauniæ administratióne, admirabílior fuit christianæ virtútis et vitæ austerioris exemplis. Ad Granatense sepúlcrum Isabellam imperatricem cum detulísset, in eius vultu, fœde commutato, mortalium ómnium caducitátem rélegens, voto se adstrinxit, rebus ómnibus, cum primum licéret, abiectis, regum Regi unice inserviéndi.

Reading 4
Francis, fourth Duke of Gandia, was the son of John Borgia, Duke of Gandia, and of Joan of Aragon, daughter of Alphonso, natural son to Ferdinand V. surnamed the Catholic, King of Aragon. (He was born at Gandia, in the kingdom of Valencia, in the year of our Lord 1510.) He passed his boyhood at home in great innocence and godliness, and was still more remarkable for his Christian graces and the hardness of his living, at the Court of the Emperor Charles V., and as Vice-Roy of Catalonia. (On May the 1st, 1539) died the Empress Isabella, and Francis, (as her master of the horse,) was commanded to attend her body to Granada, where it was to be buried. (At Granada the coffin was opened, in order that he might swear to the magistrates of the city that it was indeed the body of the late Empress,) and the sight of the awful change which death had made in her countenance so thrilled him with the thought of our mortality and corruption, that he bound himself by vow, as soon as he lawfully might, to give up all things, and to serve the King of kings only. From that time he so advanced in Christian graces, that his life might be called the miracle of princes, showing, in the midst of a vast mass of business, an image of perfection attained in a cloister. greatly endeared him to Princes and Popes, and besides founding or enlarging very many houses in diverse places, he sent brethren into the kingdom of Poland, into the islands of the Ocean, and into the provinces of Mexico and Peru, and into other lands also Apostolic men who spread the Roman Catholic faith by their preaching, their sweat, and their blood.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord made him honourable, and defended him from his enemies, and kept him safe from those that lay in wait for him;
* And gave him perpetual glory.
V. He went down with him into the pit, and left him not in bonds.
R. And gave him perpetual glory.
V. Iube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

His wife, Eleanora de Castro, died on the 27th of March, 1546, and (in 1551) he entered the Society of Jesus, that therein he might hide himself more safely, and bar by the obligation of a vow the path to dignities. He was the worthy leader of many princes who have embraced a life of hardship, and Charles V. himself when he resigned the Empire did not deny that he had been moved and shown the way by Francis. In his struggle after austerity Francis, by fasting, by iron chains, by the roughest of hair -cloth, by long and bloody flagellations, and by denying himself any but very little sleep, reduced his body to the last degree, but would still spare no toil to overcome himself and to save souls. Thus full of ghostly strength, he was appointed by holy Ignatius, in the year 1554, Commissary-General of the Society in Spain, Portugal, and the Indies, and on the 2nd of July, 1565, notwithstanding all the precautions he could take to prevent it, he was chosen by the general Congregation of the Society to be General, being the third who held that office. In this position his wisdom and holiness of life

De se ita demisse sentiebat, ut peccatóris nomen sibi proprium fáceret. Romanam purpuram, a summis Pontificibus sæpius oblatam, invicta humilitátis constántia recusávit. Vérrere sordes, emendicáre victum ostiatim, ægris ministrare in nosocomíis, mundi ac sui contemptor, in deliciis hábuit. Singulis diébus multas continenter horas, frequenter octo, quandoque decem, dabat cæléstium contemplatióni. Centies quotídie de genu Deum adorábat. Numquam a sacrificando abstinuit, prodebatque sese divinus quo æstuábat ardor, eius vultu, sacram Hostiam offeréntis aut concionántis, intérdum radiante. Sanctíssimum Christi corpus in Eucharistia latens ubi asservarétur, instinctu cælésti sentiebat. Cardinali Alexandrino, ad coniungendos contra Turcas, christiános príncipes, legato comes additus a beato Pio quinto, arduum iter, fractis iam pene viribus, suscépit ex obediéntia; in qua et vitæ cursum Romæ, ut optarat, feliciter consummávit, anno ætátis suæ sexagesimo secundo, salútis vero millesimo quingentésimo septuagesimo secundo. A sancta Teresia, quæ eius utebátur consíliis, vir sanctus, a Gregório décimo tertio fidélis adminíster appellátus; demum a Cleménte décimo, plúribus magnisque clarus miraculis, in Sanctórum númerum est adscriptus.

Reading 6
He thought so little of himself that he gave himself the nickname of Francis the sinner. By the Popes he was oftentimes offered the dignity of Cardinal of the Roman Church, but the lowly firmness with which he refused it could never be overcome. In his cheap esteem of the world and of himself his chief pleasures were to clean the house, to beg for food from door to door, and to wait upon the sick in hospitals. He spent many hours every day, oftentimes eight and sometimes ten, in prayer and meditation. An hundred times every day he worshipped God upon his knees. He never missed the opportunity of offering the Holy Liturgy, and the fire from God which burnt within him sometimes shone forth in his countenance when he was lifting the Sacred Host, or preaching. By an inward power given him from God he could tell where the most Holy Body of Christ, under the Eucharistic veils, was kept. In 1570, the year before the victory of Lepanto, the blessed Pius V. sent Francis with the Cardinal Alexandrini on an embassy (into France, Spain, and Portugal,) to unite the Christian Princes against Turkey. His vital strength was then nearly worn out, but, through obedience, he undertook the toil of the journey. He became much worse during the travelling, and on his return brought to a blessed end at Rome, as had been his desire, the pilgrimage of this life, (a little before midnight between the last day of September and the first of October,) in the sixty-second year of his own life, and that of salvation 1572. Holy Teresa, who used his advice, called him an holy man, and Gregory XIII., a faithful servant. He was famous for many and great signs and wonders, and Clement X. at last numbered him among the Saints.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. This is he which did according unto all that God commanded him; and God said unto him: Enter thou into My rest,
* For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.
V. This is he which loved not his life in this world, and is come unto an everlasting kingdom.
R. For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.

49:18 If thou didst see a thief thou didst run with him: * and with adulterers thou hast been a partaker.
49:19 Thy mouth hath abounded with evil, * and thy tongue framed deceits.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris:

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum.
Matt 19:27-29
In illo témpore: Dixit Petrus ad Iesum: Ecce nos relíquimus ómnia, et secúti sumus te: quid ergo erit nobis? Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Hierónymi Presbýteri.
Lib. 3. in Matth. cap. 19.
Grandis fidúcia! Petrus piscátor erat, dives non fúerat, cibos manu et arte quærébat: et tamen lóquitur confidénter: Relíquimus ómnia. Et quia non súfficit tantum relínquere, iungit quod perféctum est: Et secúti sumus te. Fécimus quod iussísti: quid ígitur nobis dabis prǽmii? Iesus autem dixit illis: Amen dico vobis, quod vos qui secúti estis me, in regeneratióne, cum séderit Fílius hóminis in sede maiestátis suæ, sedébitis et vos super sedes duódecim, iudicántes duódecim tribus Ísraël. Non dixit: Qui reliquístis ómnia; hoc enim et Crates fecit philósophus, et multi álii divítias contempsérunt: sed, Qui secúti estis me: quod próprie Apostolórum est, atque credéntium.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Iste est qui ante Deum magnas virtútes operátus est, et de omni corde suo laudávit Dóminum:
* Ipse intercédat pro peccátis ómnium populórum.
V. Ecce homo sine queréla, verus Dei cultor, ábstinens se ab omni ópere malo, et pérmanens in innocéntia sua.
R. Ipse intercédat pro peccátis ómnium populórum.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Gospel's holy lection be our safety and protection. Amen.

From the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 19:27-29
At that time, Peter said unto Jesus: Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee what shall we have therefore? And so on.

Homily by St. Jerome, Priest at Bethlehem.
Bk. iii. on Matth xix.
Peter was a fisherman, he was not rich, he earned his bread by his hand and skill, and nevertheless he is thus bold, and saith confidently: We have forsaken all. And because it sufficeth not to forsake only, he addeth that which to do is to be perfect: and followed thee. We have done that which Thou hast commanded us, what reward therefore wilt Thou give us? And Jesus said unto them Amen I say unto you, that ye which have followed Me, in the regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. He said not, Ye which have forsaken all, for this did even Crates the philosopher, and they which have set nothing by riches are many, but, Ye which have followed Me. This did the Apostles, and this do believers do.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. This is he which wrought great wonders before God, and praised the Lord with all his heart.
* May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them.
V. Behold a man without blame, a worshipper of God in truth, keeping himself clean from every evil work, and abiding still in his innocency.
R. May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them.
V. Iube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cuius festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
In regeneratióne, cum séderit Fílius hóminis in sede maiestátis suæ (quando et mórtui de corruptióne resúrgent incorrúpti) sedébitis et vos in sóliis iudicántium, condemnántes duódecim tribus Ísraël: quia vobis credéntibus, illi crédere noluérunt. Et omnis qui relíquerit domum, vel fratres, aut soróres, aut patrem, aut matrem, aut uxórem, aut fílios, aut agros propter nomen meum, centúplum accípiet, et vitam ætérnam possidébit. Locus iste cum illa senténtia cóngruit, in qua Salvátor lóquitur: Non veni pacem míttere, sed gládium. Veni enim separáre hóminem a patre suo, et matrem a fília, et nurum a socru: et inimíci hóminis doméstici eius. Qui ergo propter fidem Christi, et prædicatiónem Evangélii, omnes afféctus contémpserint, atque divítias et sǽculi voluptátes: isti centúplum recípient, et vitam ætérnam possidébunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Sint lumbi vestri præcíncti, et lucérnæ ardéntes in mánibus vestris:
* Et vos símiles homínibus exspectántibus dóminum suum, quando revertátur a núptiis.
V. Vigiláte ergo, quia nescítis qua hora Dóminus vester ventúrus sit.
R. Et vos símiles homínibus exspectántibus dóminum suum, quando revertátur a núptiis.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et vos símiles homínibus exspectántibus dóminum suum, quando revertátur a núptiis.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
In the regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, and when the dead shall rise again from corruption incorruptible, i Cor. xv. 53, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones of judgment, condemning the twelve tribes of Israel, because, when ye believed in Me, they would not. John iii. 18. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My Name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. This place agreeth well with that other where the Saviour saith I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man's foes shall be they of his own household. Matth. x. 34. Every one, therefore, that hath set no store by affection, and riches, and the pleasures of the world, for Christ's faith's sake, and the preaching of the Gospel, shall receive an hundred-fold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
* And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding.
V. Watch therefore, for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
R. And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding.
V. Iube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Ex occasióne huius senténtiæ quidam introdúcunt mille annos post resurrectiónem, dicéntes, tunc nobis centúplum ómnium rerum quas dimísimus, et vitam ætérnam esse reddéndam: non intelligéntes, quod, si in céteris digna sit repromíssio, in uxóribus appáreat turpitúdo: ut qui unam pro Dómino dimíserit centum recípiat in futúro. Sensus ergo iste est: Qui carnália pro Salvatóre dimíserit, spirituália recípiet: quæ comparatióne et mérito sui ita erunt, quasi si parvo número centenárius númerus comparétur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 9
By reason of these words, an hundredfold, some will have that there shall be a thousand years after the resurrection, wherein they that have forsaken all things shall receive an hundredfold of those things which they have forsaken, and shall inherit everlasting life. Such men consider not that though in other things this were worthy, as touching wives it is unseemly for it becometh us not to think that he that hath forsaken one wife in this world, shall receive an hundred wives in that which is to come. But the meaning is this, that every one that for the Saviour's sake hath forsaken earthly things, shall receive spiritual things which things, being rightly weighed against earthly things, are as though an hundredfold were weighed against one.
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.
Thou art the King of Glory, * O Christ.
Thou art the everlasting * Son of the Father.

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.
Reliqua omittuntur, nisi Laudes separandae sint.
Reliqua omittuntur, nisi Laudes separandae sint.
