Incipit
Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris: et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem: sed líbera nos a malo. Amen.
Ave María, grátia plena; Dóminus tecum: benedícta tu in muliéribus, et benedíctus fructus ventris tui Jesus. Sancta María, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatóribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostræ. Amen.
Credo in Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, Creatórem cæli et terræ.
Et in Jesum Christum, Fílium ejus únicum, Dóminum nostrum: qui concéptus est de Spíritu Sancto, natus ex María Vírgine, passus sub Póntio Piláto, crucifíxus, mórtuus, et sepúltus: descéndit ad ínferos; tértia die resurréxit a mórtuis; ascéndit ad cælos; sedet ad déxteram Dei Patris omnipoténtis: inde ventúrus est judicáre vivos et mórtuos.
Credo in Spíritum Sanctum, sanctam Ecclésiam cathólicam, Sanctórum communiónem, remissiónem peccatórum, carnis resurrectiónem, vitam ætérnam. Amen.
V. Dómine, lábia +︎ mea apéries.
R. Et os meum annuntiábit laudem tuam.

Start
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation: But deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace; The Lord is with thee; Blessed art thou amongst women, And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried: he descended into hell; the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sitteth at the right hand of God the Father almighty: from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins. The resurrection of the body. And life everlasting. Amen.
V. O Lord, +︎ open thou my lips.
R. And my mouth shall declare thy praise.
V. O God, come to my assistance;
R. O Lord, make haste to help me.
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.

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 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.

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.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Iste Conféssor Dómini, coléntes
Quem pie laudant pópuli per orbem,
Hac die lætus méruit suprémos
Laudis honóres.

Qui pius, prudens, húmilis, pudícus,
Sóbriam duxit sine labe vitam,
Donec humános animávit auræ
Spíritus artus.

Cujus ob præstans méritum, frequénter,
Ægra quæ passim jacuére membra,
Víribus morbi dómitis, salúti
Restituúntur.

Noster hinc illi chorus obsequéntem
Cóncinit laudem celebrésque palmas,
Ut piis ejus précibus juvémur
Omne per ævum.

Sit salus illi, decus atque virtus,
Qui, super cæli sólio corúscans,
Tótius mundi sériem gubérnat,
Trinus et unus.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
This the confessor of the Lord, whose triumph
Now all the faithful celebrate, with gladness
On this feast day year by year receiveth
Merited honors.

Saintly and prudent, modest in behaviour,
Peaceful and sober, chaste was he, and lowly.
While that life’s vigour, coursing through his members,
Quickened his being.

Sick ones of old time, to his tomb resorting,
Sorely by ailments manifold afflicted,
Oft-times have welcomed health and strength returning,
At his petition.

Whence we in chorus gladly do him honour,
Chanting his praises with devout affection,
That in his merits we may have a portion,
Now and forever.

His be the glory, power and salvation,
Who over all things reigneth in the highest,
Earth’s mighty fabric ruling and directing,
Onely and Trinal.
Amen.

61:7 Quia ipse Deus meus, et salvátor meus: * adjútor meus, non emigrábo.

61:4 How long do you rush in upon a man? * you all kill, as if you were thrusting down a leaning wall, and a tottering fence.

Lesson from the first book of Machabees
1 Mac 6:1-6
1 Now king Antiochus was going through the higher countries, and he heard that the city of Elymais in Persia was greatly renowned, and abounding in silver and gold.
2 And that there was in it a temple, exceeding rich: and coverings of gold, and breastplates, and shields which king Alexander, son of Philip the Macedonian that reigned first in Greece, had left there.
3 Lo, he came, and sought to take the city and to pillage it: But he was not able, because the design was known to them that were in the city.
4 And they rose up against him in battle, and he fled away from thence, and departed with great sadness, and returned towards Babylonia.
5 And whilst he was in Persia, there came one that told him, how the armies that were in the land of Juda were put to flight:
6 And that Lysias went with a very great power, and was put to flight before the face of the Jews,
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord open your hearts in His law and commandments, and send peace in your days.
* May He grant you salvation and redeem you out of all evil.
V. The Lord hear your prayers, and be at one with you, and never forsake you in the time of trouble.
R. May He grant you salvation and redeem you out of all evil.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.

1 Mac 6:6-9
6 Et invaluérunt armis, et víribus, et spóliis multis, quæ cepérunt de castris, quæ excidérunt:
7 Et quia diruérunt abominatiónem, quam ædificáverat super altáre, quod erat in Jerúsalem, et sanctificatiónem, sicut prius, circumdedérunt muris excélsis, sed et Bethsúram civitátem suam.
8 Et factum est, ut audívit rex sermónes istos, expávit et commótus est valde: et décidit in lectum, et íncidit in languórem præ tristítia, quia non factum est ei sicut cogitábat.
9 Et erat illic per dies multos, quia renováta est in eo tristítia magna, et arbitrátus est se mori.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Exáudiat Dóminus oratiónes vestras, et reconciliétur vobis, nec vos déserat in témpore malo,

1 Mac 6:6-9
6 And that thy were grown strong by the armour, and power, and store of spoils, which they had gotten out of the camps which they had destroyed:
7 And that they had thrown down the abomination which he had set up upon the altar in Jerusalem, and that they had compassed about the sanctuary with high walls as before, and Bethsura also his city.
8 And it came to pass when the king heard these words, that he was struck with fear, and exceedingly moved: and he laid himself down upon his bed, and fell sick for grief, because it had not fallen out to him as he imagined.
9 And he remained there many days: for great grief came more and more and more upon him, and he made account that he should die.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord hear your prayers, and be at one with you, and never forsake you in the time of trouble
* Even He, the Lord our God.
V. Give you all an heart to serve Him, and to do His will.

10 Et vocávit omnes amícos suos, et dixit illis: Recéssit somnus ab óculis meis, et cóncidi, et córrui corde præ sollicitúdine:
11 Et dixi in corde meo: In quantam tribulatiónem devéni, et in quos fluctus tristítiæ, in qua nunc sum, qui jucúndus eram, et diléctus in potestáte mea!
12 Nunc vero reminíscor malórum, quæ feci in Jerúsalem, unde et ábstuli ómnia spólia áurea et argéntea quæ erant in ea, et misi auférre habitántes Judǽam sine causa.
13 Cognóvi ergo quia proptérea invenérunt me mala ista: et ecce péreo tristítia magna in terra aliéna.

1 Mac 6:10-13
10 And he called for all his friends, and said to them: Sleep is gone from my eyes, and I am fallen away, and my heart is cast down for anxiety.
11 And I said in my heart: Into how much tribulation am I come, and into what floods of sorrow, wherein now I am: I that was pleasant and beloved in my power!
12 But now I remember the evils that I have done in Jerusalem, from whence also I took away all the spoils of gold, and of silver that were in it, and I sent to destroy the inhabitants of Juda without cause.
13 I know therefore that for this cause these evils have found me: and behold I perish with great grief in a strange land.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Our enemies are gathered together, and make their boast of their own strength. O Lord, break their power, and scatter them
* That they may know that there is none other that fighteth for us, but only Thou, O our God!
V. Scatter them in thy strength, and destroy them, O Lord our Shield.
R. That they may know that there is none other that fighteth for us, but only Thou, O our God!

Ant. Let God arise,
Psalm 67(2-11) [4]
67:2 Let God arise, and let his enemies be scattered: * and let them that hate him flee from before his face.
67:3 As smoke vanisheth, so let them vanish away: * as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
67:4 And let the just feast, and rejoice before God: * and be delighted with gladness.
67:5 Sing ye to God, sing a psalm to his name, * make a way for him who ascendeth upon the west: (bow head) The Lord is his name.
67:5 Rejoice ye before him: * but the wicked shall be troubled at his presence, who is the father of orphans, and the judge of widows.
67:6 God in his holy place: * God who maketh men of one manner to dwell in a house:
67:7 Who bringeth out them that were bound in strength; * in like manner them that provoke, that dwell in sepulchres.
67:8 O God, when thou didst go forth in the sight of thy people, * when thou didst pass through the desert:
67:9 The earth was moved, and the heavens dropped at the presence of the God of Sinai, * at the presence of the God of Israel.
67:10 Thou shalt set aside for thy inheritance a free rain, * O God: and it was weakened, but thou hast made it perfect.
67:11 In it shall thy animals dwell; * in thy sweetness, O God, thou hast provided for the poor.

Psalmus 67(12-24) [5]
67:12 Dóminus dabit verbum evangelizántibus, * virtúte multa.
67:13 Rex virtútum dilécti dilécti: * et speciéi domus divídere spólia.
67:14 Si dormiátis inter médios cleros, pennæ colúmbæ deargentátæ, * et posterióra dorsi ejus in pallóre auri.
67:15 Dum discérnit cæléstis reges super eam, nive dealbabúntur in Selmon: * mons Dei, mons pinguis.
67:16 Mons coagulátus, mons pinguis: * ut quid suspicámini montes coagulátos?
67:17 Mons, in quo beneplácitum est Deo habitáre in eo: * étenim Dóminus habitábit in finem.
67:18 Currus Dei decem míllibus múltiplex, míllia lætántium: * Dóminus in eis in Sina in sancto.
67:19 Ascendísti in altum, cepísti captivitátem: * accepísti dona in homínibus.
67:19 Étenim non credéntes, * inhabitáre Dóminum Deum.
67:20 Benedíctus Dóminus die quotídie: * prósperum iter fáciet nobis Deus salutárium nostrórum.
67:21 Deus noster, Deus salvos faciéndi: * et Dómini Dómini éxitus mortis.
67:22 Verúmtamen Deus confrínget cápita inimicórum suórum: * vérticem capílli perambulántium in delíctis suis.
67:23 Dixit Dóminus: Ex Basan convértam, * convértam in profúndum maris:
67:24 Ut intingátur pes tuus in sánguine: * lingua canum tuórum ex inimícis, ab ipso.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Deus noster, Deus salvos faciéndi: et Dómini sunt éxitus mortis.
Ant. Our God
Psalm 67(12-24) [5]
67:12 The Lord shall give the word to them that preach good tidings, * with great power.
67:13 The king of powers is of the beloved, * of the beloved; and the beauty of the house shall divide spoils.
67:14 If you sleep among the midst of lots, you shall be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, * and the hinder parts of her back with the paleness of gold.
67:15 When he that is in heaven appointeth kings over her, * they shall be whited with snow in Selmon.
67:16 The mountain of God is a fat mountain, a curdled mountain, a fat mountain; * Why suspect, ye curdled mountains?
67:17 A mountain in which God is well pleased to dwell: * for there the Lord shall dwell unto the end.
67:18 The chariot of God is attended by ten thousands; thousands of them that rejoice: * the Lord is among them in Sinai, in the holy place.
67:19 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive; * thou hast received gifts in men.
67:19 Yea for those also that do not believe, * the dwelling of the Lord God.
67:20 Blessed be the Lord day by day: * the God of our salvation will make our journey prosperous to us.
67:21 Our God is the God of salvation: * and of the Lord, of the Lord are the issues from death.
67:22 But God shall break the heads of his enemies: * the hairy crown of them that walk on in their sins.
67:23 The Lord said: I will turn them from Basan, * I will turn them into the depth of the sea:
67:24 That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thy enemies; * the tongue of thy dogs be red with the same.
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.

Franciscus, Gandiæ dux quartus, Joánne Borgia et Joánna 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 ejus vultu, fœde commutato, mortalium ómnium caducitátem rélegens, voto se adstrinxit, rebus ómnibus, cum primum licéret, abjectis, regum Regi unice inserviéndi. Inde tantum virtútis increméntum fecit, ut, inter negotiórum turbas, religiosæ perfectiónis simillimam imáginem réferens, miraculum príncipum appellarétur.

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. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Mortua Eleonora de Castro cónjuge ingréssus est societátem Jesu, ut in ea latéret securius et præcluderet dignitátibus áditum, interposita voti religióne; dignus, quem et viri príncipes complures in amplecténdo severiori instituto fúerint secuti, et Cárolus quintus ipse in abdicando imperio hortatórem sibi aut ducem exstitisse non diffiterétur. In eo arctioris vitæ studio Franciscus jejuniis, catenis férreis, asperrimo cilício, cruentis longisque verberatiónibus, somno brevíssimo, corpus ad extremam usque maciem redégit, nullis præterea parcens labóribus ad sui victoriam et ad salútem animárum.

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
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.

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, ejus vultu, sacram Hostiam offeréntis aut concionántis, intérdum radiante. Sanctíssimum Christi corpus in Eucharistia latens ubi asservarétur, instinctu cælésti sentiebat. Cardinali Alexandrino, ad conjungendos contra Turcas, christiános príncipes, legato comes additus a beato Pio quinto, arduum iter, fractis jam 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 ejus 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.

68:3 I stick fast in the mire of the deep: * and there is no sure standing.
68:3 I am come into the depth of the sea: * and a tempest hath overwhelmed me.
68:4 I have laboured with crying; my jaws are become hoarse: * my eyes have failed, whilst I hope in my God.

68:10 For the zeal of thy house hath eaten me up: * and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
68:11 And I covered my soul in fasting: * and it was made a reproach to me.
68:12 And I made haircloth my garment: * and I became a byword to them.

68:19 Attend to my soul, and deliver it: * save me because of my enemies.
68:20 Thou knowest my reproach, and my confusion, * and my shame.
68:21 In thy sight are all they that afflict me; * my heart hath expected reproach and misery.
68:21 And I looked for one that would grieve together with me, * but there was none: and for one that would comfort me, and I found none.
68:22 And they gave me gall for my food, * and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
68:23 Let their table become as a snare before them, * and a recompense, and a stumblingblock.
68:24 Let their eyes be darkened that they see not; * and their back bend thou down always.
68:25 Pour out thy indignation upon them: * and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
68:26 Let their habitation be made desolate: * and let there be none to dwell in their tabernacles.
68:27 Because they have persecuted him whom thou hast smitten; * and they have added to the grief of my wounds.
68:28 Add thou iniquity upon their iniquity: * and let them not come into thy justice.
68:29 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living; * and with the just let them not be written.
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.

Ant. O Lord, save me from my enemies.
Ant. Quǽrite Dóminum,
Psalmus 68(30-37) [9]
68:30 Ego sum pauper et dolens: * salus tua, Deus, suscépit me.
68:31 Laudábo nomen Dei cum cántico: * et magnificábo eum in laude:
68:32 Et placébit Deo super vítulum novéllum: * córnua producéntem et úngulas.
68:33 Vídeant páuperes et læténtur: * quǽrite Deum, et vivet ánima vestra.
68:34 Quóniam exaudívit páuperes Dóminus: * et vinctos suos non despéxit.
68:35 Laudent illum cæli et terra, * mare et ómnia reptília in eis.
68:36 Quóniam Deus salvam fáciet Sion: * et ædificabúntur civitátes Juda.

68:31 I will praise the name of God with a canticle: * and I will magnify him with praise.
68:32 And it shall please God better than a young calf, * that bringeth forth horns and hoofs.
68:33 Let the poor see and rejoice: * seek ye God, and your soul shall live.
68:34 For the Lord hath heard the poor: * and hath not despised his prisoners.
68:35 Let the heavens and the earth praise him; * the sea, and every thing that creepeth therein.
68:36 For God will save Sion, * and the cities of Juda shall be built up.
68:36 And they shall dwell there, * and acquire it by inheritance.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum.
Matt 19:27-29
In illo témpore: Dixit Petrus ad Jesum: 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, jungit quod perféctum est: Et secúti sumus te. Fécimus quod jussísti: quid ígitur nobis dabis prǽmii? Jesus autem dixit illis: Amen dico vobis, quod vos qui secúti estis me, in regeneratióne, cum séderit Fílius hóminis in sede majestátis suæ, sedébitis et vos super sedes duódecim, judicántes 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.

Reading 7
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. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
In regeneratióne, cum séderit Fílius hóminis in sede majestátis suæ (quando et mórtui de corruptióne resúrgent incorrúpti) sedébitis et vos in sóliis judicántium, 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 ejus. 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. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Ex occasióne hujus 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.

Te Deum laudámus: * te Dóminum confitémur.
Te ætérnum Patrem * omnis terra venerátur.
Tibi omnes Ángeli, * tibi Cæli, et univérsæ Potestátes:

Judex créderis * esse ventúrus.

Sequens versus dicitur flexis genibus
Te ergo quǽsumus, tuis fámulis súbveni, * quos pretióso sánguine redemísti.

Ætérna fac cum Sanctis tuis * in glória numerári.
Salvum fac pópulum tuum, Dómine, * et bénedic hereditáti tuæ.
Et rege eos, * et extólle illos usque in ætérnum.
Per síngulos dies * benedícimus te.

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

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
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.
Skip the rest, unless praying Lauds separately.
