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.

Ant. Quóniam ipse fecit nos.
Quóniam ipsíus est mare, et ipse fecit illud, et áridam fundavérunt manus ejus (genuflectitur) veníte, adorémus, et procidámus ante Deum: plorémus coram Dómino, qui fecit nos, quia ipse est Dóminus, Deus noster; nos autem pópulus ejus, et oves páscuæ ejus.

Ant. Quóniam ipse fecit nos.
Quadragínta annis próximus fui generatióni huic, et dixi; Semper hi errant corde, ipsi vero non cognovérunt vias meas: quibus jurávi in ira mea; Si introíbunt in réquiem meam.

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. Let us adore the Lord * He is our Creator.
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. He is our Creator.
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. Let us adore the Lord * He is our Creator.
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. He is our Creator.
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. Let us adore the Lord * He is our Creator.
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.

Hymnus {ex Psalterio secundum tempora}
Primo die, quo Trínitas
Beáta mundum cóndidit,
Vel quo resúrgens Cónditor
Nos, morte victa, líberat:

Pulsis procul torpóribus,
Surgámus omnes ócius,
Et nocte quærámus Deum,
Prophéta sicut prǽcipit:

Nostras preces ut áudiat
Suámque dextram pórrigat,
Et expiátos sórdibus
Reddat polórum sédibus:

Ut, quique sacratíssimo
Hujus diéi témpore
Horis quiétis psállimus,
Donis beátis múneret.

Jam nunc, patérna cláritas,
Te postulámus áffatim:
Absint faces libídinis,
Et omnis actus nóxius.

Ne fœda sit, vel lúbrica
Compágo nostri córporis,
Ob cujus ignes ígnibus
Avérnus urat ácrius.

Mundi Redémptor, quǽsumus,
Tu probra nostra díluas;
Nobísque largus cómmoda
Vitæ perénnis cónferas.

* Præsta, Pater piíssime,
Patríque compar Únice,
Cum Spíritu Paráclito
Regnans per omne sǽculum.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
Hail day! whereon the One in Three
First formed the earth by sure decree,
The day its Maker rose again,
And vanquished death, and burst our chain.

Away with sleep and slothful ease
We raise our hearts and bend our knees,
And early seek the Lord of all,
Obedient to the Prophet's call.

That He may hearken to our prayer,
Stretch forth His strong right arm to spare,
And ev'ry past offense forgiven,
Restore us to our home in heaven.

Assembled here this holy day,
This holiest hour we raise the lay,
And O that He to whom we sing,
May now reward our offering!

O Father of unclouded light!
Keep us this day as in thy sight,
In word and deed that we may be
From ev'ry touch of evil free.

That this our body's mortal frame
May know no sin, and fear no shame,
Nor fire hereafter be the end
Of passions which our bosom rend.

Redeemer of the world, we pray
That thou wouldst wash our sins away,
And give us, of Thy boundless grace,
The blessings of the heavenly place.

Most Holy Father, hear our cry,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord most High
Who, with the Holy Ghost and thee
Shall live and reign eternally.
Amen.

Ant. Beátus vir
Psalmus 1 [1]
1:1 Beátus vir, qui non ábiit in consílio impiórum, et in via peccatórum non stetit, * et in cáthedra pestiléntiæ non sedit:
1:2 Sed in lege Dómini volúntas ejus, * et in lege ejus meditábitur die ac nocte.
1:3 Et erit tamquam lignum, quod plantátum est secus decúrsus aquárum, * quod fructum suum dabit in témpore suo:
1:3 Et fólium ejus non défluet: * et ómnia quæcúmque fáciet, prosperabúntur.
1:4 Non sic ímpii, non sic: * sed tamquam pulvis, quem proícit ventus a fácie terræ.
1:5 Ídeo non resúrgent ímpii in judício: * neque peccatóres in concílio justórum.
1:6 Quóniam novit Dóminus viam justórum: * et iter impiórum períbit.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Blessed is the man
Psalm 1 [1]
1:1 Bem-aventurado o varão que não foi no conselho dos ímpios, nem ficou no caminho dos pecadores, * e na cadeira pestilencial se não sentou:
1:2 Mas sua vontade está na lei do Senhor, * e dia e noite meditará na sua lei.
1:3 Ele será como a árvore, que está plantada junto ao curso das águas, * que a seu tempo dará seu fruto:
1:4 Cuja folha não murchará: * e prosperará tudo quanto fizer.
1:5 Não assim os ímpios, não assim: * mas serão como o pó que o vento dispersa da face da terra.
1:6 Por isso os ímpios não ressuscitarão no juízo: * nem os pecadores no concílio dos justos.
1:7 Porque o Senhor conhece o caminho dos justos: * e o caminho dos ímpios perecerá.
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.

2:3 Dirumpámus víncula eórum: * et proiciámus a nobis jugum ipsórum.
2:4 Qui hábitat in cælis, irridébit eos: * et Dóminus subsannábit eos.
2:5 Tunc loquétur ad eos in ira sua, * et in furóre suo conturbábit eos.
2:6 Ego autem constitútus sum Rex ab eo super Sion montem sanctum ejus, * prǽdicans præcéptum ejus.
2:7 Dóminus dixit ad me: * Fílius meus es tu, ego hódie génui te.
2:8 Póstula a me, et dabo tibi gentes hereditátem tuam, * et possessiónem tuam términos terræ.

2:12 Apprehéndite disciplínam, nequándo irascátur Dóminus, * et pereátis de via justa.

Ant. Serve ye the Lord
Psalm 2 [2]
2:1 Por que razão se embraveceram as gentes: * e os povos cousas vãs meditaram?
2:2 Os reis da terra levantaram-se e os príncipes reuniram-se * contra o Senhor e contra o seu Cristo.
2:3 Rompamos os seus laços: * e sacudamos de nós o seu jugo.
2:4 Aquele que habita no céu rir-se-á deles: * e o Senhor os ridicularizá.
2:5 Ele então lhes falará na sua ira, * e conturbá-los-á na sua fúria.
2:6 Eu, porém, fui por Ele constituído Rei sobre Sião, seu santo monte, * para pregar a sua doutrina.
2:7 Disse-me o Senhor: * tu és meu filho, eu hoje te gerei.
2:8 Pede-me e dar-te-ei as gentes como tua herança, * e estenderei o teu domínio aos confins da terra.
2:9 Governá-las-ás com vara de ferro, * e quebrá-las-ás como um vaso do oleiro.
2:10 Agora, ó reis, entendei: * instruí-vos, vós que julgais a terra.
2:11 Servi o Senhor com temor: * e com tremor alegrai-vos n’Ele.
2:12 Abraçai a disciplina, para que o Senhor se não irrite, * e não pereçais fora do caminho da justiça.
2:13 Quando brevemente se incendiar a sua ira: * bem-aventurados todos os que n’Ele confiam.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

2 Mac 1:18-19
18 Factúri ígitur quinta et vigésima die mensis Casleu, purificatiónem templi, necessárium dúximus significáre vobis: ut et vos quoque agátis diem scenopégiæ, et diem ignis, qui datus est quando Nehemías, ædificáto templo et altári, óbtulit sacrifícia.
19 Nam, cum in Pérsidem duceréntur patres nostri, sacerdótes qui tunc cultóres Dei erant, accéptum ignem de altári occúlte abscondérunt in valle, ubi erat púteus altus et siccus, et in eo contutáti sunt eum, ita ut ómnibus ignótus esset locus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

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

R. Dóminus, Deus noster.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.

Reading 2
2 Mac 1:18-19
18 Therefore whereas we purpose to keep the purification of the temple on the five and twentieth day of the month of Casleu, we thought it necessary to signify it to you: that you also may keep the day of Scenopegia, and the day of the fire, that was given when Nehemias offered sacrifice, after the temple and the altar was built.
19 For when our fathers were led in Persia, the priests that then were worshippers of God took privately the fire from the altar, and hid it in a valley where there was a deep pit without water, and there they kept it safe, so that the place was unknown to all men.
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.
R. Even He, the Lord our God.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Spíritus Sancti grátia illúminet sensus et corda nostra. Amen.

2 Mac 1:20-22
20 Cum autem præteríssent anni multi, et plácuit Deo ut mitterétur Nehemías a rege Pérsidis, nepótes sacerdótum illórum, qui abscónderant, misit ad requiréndum ignem: et, sicut narravérunt nobis, non invenérunt ignem, sed aquam crassam.
21 Et jussit eos hauríre, et afférre sibi: et sacrifícia, quæ impósita erant, jussit sacérdos Nehemías aspérgi ipsa aqua: et ligna et quæ erant superpósita.
22 Utque hoc factum est, et tempus áffuit quo sol refúlsit, quo prius erat in núbilo, accénsus est ignis magnus, ita ut omnes miraréntur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Congregáti sunt inimíci nostri, et gloriántur in virtúte sua: cóntere fortitúdinem illórum, Dómine, et dispérge illos:
* Ut cognóscant quia non est álius qui pugnet pro nobis, nisi tu, Deus noster.
V. Dispérge illos in virtúte tua, et déstrue eos, protéctor noster, Dómine.
R. Ut cognóscant quia non est álius qui pugnet pro nobis, nisi tu, Deus noster.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Ut cognóscant quia non est álius qui pugnet pro nobis, nisi tu, Deus noster.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.

2 Mac 1:20-22
20 But when many years had passed, and it pleased God that Nehemias should be sent by the king of Persia, he sent some of the posterity of those priests that had hid it, to seek for the fire: and as they told us, they found no fire, but thick water.
21 Then he bade them draw it up, and bring it to him: and the priest Nehemias commanded the sacrifices that were laid on, to be sprinkled with the same water, both the wood, and the things that were laid upon it.
22 And when this was done, and the time came that the sun shone out, which before was in a cloud, there was a great fire kindled, so that all wondered.
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!
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. That they may know that there is none other that fighteth for us, but only Thou, O our God!

9:5 Quóniam fecísti judícium meum et causam meam: * sedísti super thronum, qui júdicas justítiam.

9:7 Inimíci defecérunt frámeæ in finem: * et civitátes eórum destruxísti.

Psalm 9(2-11) [5]
9:2 Alegrar-me-ei e em Vós exultarei: * cantarei o vosso nome, ó Altíssimo.
9:3 Quando baterem em retirada os meus inimigos: * cairão e perecerão ante Vós.
9:4 Porque julgastes e defendestes a minha causa: * sentastes-Vos sobre o trono, Vós que justamente julgais.
9:5 Repreendestes as gentes e o ímpio pereceu: * apagastes o nome delas para sempre e por todos os séculos dos séculos.
9:6 As espadas do inimigo ficaram embotadas para sempre: * e as suas cidades destruístes.
9:7 Com estrondo pereceu a memória deles: * mas o Senhor permanece eternamente.
9:8 Preparou o seu trono para o juízo: * e Ele mesmo julgará com equidade toda a terra, julgará os povos com justiça.
9:9 O Senhor fez-se o refúgio do pobre: * socorrendo-o oportunamente na tribulação.
9:10 Em Vós esperem os que conhecem o vosso nome: * porque Vós, ó Senhor, não desamparastes os que Vos buscam.

9:13 Tende compaixão de mim, Senhor: * vede o meu abatimento que vem dos meus inimigos.
9:14 Que me ergueis das portas da morte, * para que anuncie todos vossos louvores às portas da filha de Sião.
9:15 Exultarei na salvação que me obtivestes: * as gentes caíram na ruína que me tinham preparado.
9:16 No laço que me tinham preparado, * o seu pé ficou preso.
9:17 Conhecer-se-á que o Senhor faz justiça: * nas obras das suas mãos foi preso o pecador.
9:18 Sejam precipitados no inferno todos os pecadores, * todos as gentes que de Deus se esquecem.
9:19 Porque não estará para sempre esquecido o pobre: * nem a paciência dos infelizes será para sempre frustrada.
9:20 Levantai-Vos, ó Senhor, não triunfe o homem: * sejam julgadas as gentes em vossa presença.

Ex Tractatu sancti Joánnis Chrysóstomi super Psalmum quadragésimum tertium

Deus, áuribus nostris audívimus, patres nostri annuntiavérunt nobis opus quod operátus es in diébus eórum. Hunc Psalmum dicit quidem prophéta, dicit autem non ex persona propria, sed ex persona Machabæórum, narrans et prædicens quæ futura erant illo témpore. Tales enim sunt prophetæ: ómnia témpora percurrunt, præséntia, prætérita, futura. Quinam sint autem hi Machabæi, quidque passi sint et quid fécerint, necessárium est primum dicere, ut sint apertióra quæ in argumento dicúntur. Ii enim, cum invasísset Judæam Antíochus qui dictus est Epíphanes, et ómnia devastasset, et multos qui tunc erant, a pátriis institútis resilire coëgísset, permansérunt illæsi ab illis tentatiónibus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Impetum inimicórum ne timuéritis: mémores estóte, quómodo salvi facti sunt patres nostri:
* Et nunc clamémus in cælum et miserébitur nostri Deus noster.
V. Mementóte mirabílium ejus, quæ fecit pharaóni et exercítui ejus in Mari Rubro.
R. Et nunc clamémus in cælum et miserébitur nostri Deus noster.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May God the Father Omnipotent, be to us merciful and clement. Amen.

Reading 4
From blessed John Chrysostom
On Psalm 43
We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what thou hast done in their time of old. The Prophet speaketh thus in the Psalm, yet not in his own person, but in the person of the Maccabees, relating and foretelling what events were to happen at the time. For such are the Prophets : they outrun all times, past, present, and future. But in order that our discussion of the subject may be more intelligible, we must first state who were these Maccabees, and what they suffered, and what they did. For when Antiochus, surnamed Epiphanes, had invaded Judaea, and laid everthing waste, and had forced many who then dwelt there to fall away from the laws of their fathers, the Maccabees remained unsullied by these temptations.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Be ye not afraid of the assault of the enemy; remember how our fathers were delivered.
* Now, therefore, let us cry unto heaven, and our God will have mercy upon us.
V. Remember His marvellous works that He hath done unto Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea.
R. Now, therefore, let us cry unto heaven, and our God will have mercy upon us.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Et quando grave quidem bellum ingruebat, nec quidquam possent fácere quod prodesset, se abscondébant; nam hoc quoque fecérunt Apóstoli. Non enim semper apparéntes in media irruébant pericula, sed nonnumquam et fugiéntes, et laténtes secedebant. Postquam autem parum respirarunt, tamquam generosi quidam catuli ex antris exsiliéntes et e látebris emergéntes, statuérunt non se ámplius solos servare, sed étiam alios quoscúmque possent: et civitátem et omnem regiónem obeuntes, collegérunt quotquot invenérunt adhuc sanos et íntegros; et multos étiam qui laborábant et corrúpti erant, in státum prístinum redegérunt, eis persuadéntes redire ad legem pátriam.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Congregátæ sunt gentes in multitúdine, ut dímicent contra nos, et ignorámus quid ágere debeámus:
* Dómine Deus, ad te sunt óculi nostri, ne pereámus.
V. Tu scis quæ cógitant in nos: quómodo potérimus subsístere ante fáciem illórum, nisi tu ádjuves nos?
R. Dómine Deus, ad te sunt óculi nostri, ne pereámus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
And when a serious war broke out, and they could do nothing to help themselves, they hid themselves, as also in aftertimes the Apostles did. For they did not always rush openly into the midst of dangers, but sometimes fled, withdrawing thus to hide. However, after one such short respite, they were like eager animals leaping out of their caves and coming forth from their lairs, and they thereupon resolved for the future, not to win safety for themselves only, but for others, whomsoever they could. And going through all that city and country, they gathered together as many as they found who were still healthy and steadfast; and even many who were weak, and had been corrupted, they persuaded to return to the Law of their fathers.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The heathen are assembled together to fight against us, and we know not what we should do.
* Our eyes look unto thee, O Lord our God, that we should not perish.
V. What things they imagine against us, Thou knowest. How shall we be able to stand against them, except Thou be our help.
R. Our eyes look unto thee, O Lord our God, that we should not perish.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ignem sui amóris accéndat Deus in córdibus nostris. Amen.

Deum enim dicébant esse benignum et cleméntem, nec umquam adímere salútem, quæ proficiscitur ex pœniténtia. Hæc autem dicéntes, habuérunt deléctum fortissimórum virórum. Non enim pro uxóribus, líberis, et ancíllis, pátriæque eversióne et captivitáte, sed pro lege et pátria republica pugnábant. Eórum autem dux erat Deus. Cum ergo aciem dirigerent, et suas ánimas prodigerent, fundébant adversarios, non armis fidéntes, sed loco omnis armatúræ, pugnæ causam sufficere ducéntes. Ad bellum autem euntes non tragœdias excitábant, non pæána canébant, sicut nonnulli faciunt: non ascivérunt tibícines, ut fit in aliis castris: sed Dei superne auxílium invocábant, ut adesset, opem ferret et manum præbéret, propter quem bellum gerébant, pro cujus glória decertábant.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Tua est poténtia, tuum regnum, Dómine: tu es super omnes gentes:
* Da pacem, Dómine, in diébus nostris.
V. Creátor ómnium, Deus, terríbilis et fortis, justus et miséricors.
R. Da pacem, Dómine, in diébus nostris.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Da pacem, Dómine, in diébus nostris.

Reading 6
For they told them that God is merciful and gracious, and that he hath never deprived men of that salvation which is obtained by penítence. And, so saying, they raised a levy of the most valiant men. For they fought not for their wives, their children and servants, or because of the ruin and captivity of their fatherland, but for the Law, and the religion of their fathers. Now their leader was God. Therefore, when they arrayed their battle line, and put their lives in jeopardy, they overthrew their adversaries because they trusted not in arms, but considered that the just cause of their war was in itself a good armour. Moreover, when they went forth to the conflict, they uttered no bombast, nor sang battle songs, as some do ; nor did they call together musicians, as is done in other armies; but they invoked the help of the Most High God, that he might be with them, and aid them, and strengthen their hand, because that war which they waged was for his glory.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Thine, O Lord, is the power, thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and Thou art exalted above all the heathen.
* Give peace in our time, O Lord.
V. O Lord God, Creator of all things, Who art fearful and strong, righteous and merciful.
R. Give peace in our time, O Lord.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Give peace in our time, O Lord.

9:22 Ut quid, Dómine, recessísti longe, * déspicis in opportunitátibus, in tribulatióne?
9:23 Dum supérbit ímpius, incénditur pauper: * comprehendúntur in consíliis quibus cógitant.
9:24 Quóniam laudátur peccátor in desidériis ánimæ suæ: * et iníquus benedícitur.
9:25 Exacerbávit Dóminum peccátor, * secúndum multitúdinem iræ suæ non quǽret.
9:26 Non est Deus in conspéctu ejus: * inquinátæ sunt viæ illíus in omni témpore.
9:26 Auferúntur judícia tua a fácie ejus: * ómnium inimicórum suórum dominábitur.
9:27 Dixit enim in corde suo: * Non movébor a generatióne in generatiónem sine malo.
9:28 Cujus maledictióne os plenum est, et amaritúdine, et dolo: * sub lingua ejus labor et dolor.
9:29 Sedet in insídiis cum divítibus in occúltis: * ut interfíciat innocéntem.
9:30 Óculi ejus in páuperem respíciunt: * insidiátur in abscóndito, quasi leo in spelúnca sua.
9:30 Insidiátur ut rápiat páuperem: * rápere páuperem, dum áttrahit eum.
9:31 In láqueo suo humiliábit eum: * inclinábit se, et cadet, cum dominátus fúerit páuperum.

Ant. Why, O Lord,
Psalm 9(22-32) [7]
9:22 Senhor, porque Vos apartastes para longe, * desamparais-nos nas necessidades e na tribulação?
9:23 Enquanto o ímpio se envaidece, o pobre é abrasado: * são apanhados nas intrigas que teceram.
9:24 Pois o pecador vangloria-se nos desejos da sua alma: * e o iníquo é felicitado.
9:25 O pecador exacerbou o Senhor, * devido à sua grande ira Ele o não procurará.
9:26 Não há Deus diante dele: * os seus caminhos são sempre viciosos.
9:27 Não estão ante sua vista Vossos juízos: * dominará ele todos seus inimigos.
9:28 Pois disse no seu coração: * não serei movido de geração em geração e do mal estarei livre.
9:29 Sua boca está cheia de maledicência, de amargura e de dolo: * debaixo da sua língua estão o trabalho e a dor.
9:30 Senta-se em emboscada com os ricos em lugares ocultos: * para o inocente matar.
9:31 Seus olhos estão sobre o pobre: * aguarda escondido como o leão na sua cova.
9:32 Arma ciladas para arrebatar o pobre: * para arrebatar o pobre, atraindo-o a si.

9:35 Vides quóniam tu labórem et dolórem consíderas: * ut tradas eos in manus tuas.
9:35 Tibi derelíctus est pauper: * órphano tu eris adjútor.

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 Pois disse no seu coração: Deus esqueceu-se, * virou o seu rosto para até ao fim não ver.
9:35 Levantai-Vos, ó Senhor Deus, eleve-se a vossa mão: * e dos pobres Vos não esqueçais.
9:36 Por que motivo o ímpio irritou a Deus? * Porque disse no seu coração: Ele não exige.
9:37 Porém, Vós o vedes, considerais o trabalho e a dor: * para o tomardes nas vossas mãos.
9:38 A Vós se abandona o infeliz: * sereis Vós o amparo do órfão.
9:39 Quebrai o braço do pecador e do maligno: * buscar-se-á o seu pecado e se não achará.

10:3 Porque eles destruíram o que fizestes de bom: * mas que fez o justo?
10:4 O Senhor habita no seu santo templo, * o trono do Senhor está no céu.
10:5 Seus olhos olham para o pobre: * suas pálpebras inquirem os filhos dos homens.
10:6 O Senhor interroga o justo e o ímpio: * mas aquele que ama a iniquidade, odeia a sua alma.

Homilia 38 in Evangelia, post initium
Sæpe jam me dixísse mémini, quod plerúmque in sancto Evangélio regnum cælórum præsens Ecclésia nominátur: congregátio quippe justórum, regnum cælórum dícitur. Quia enim per prophétam Dóminus dicit: Cælum mihi sedes est; et Sálomon ait: Anima justi sedes sapiéntiæ; Paulus étiam dicit Christum Dei virtútem, et Dei sapiéntiam: líquido collígere debémus, quia si Deus sapiéntia, ánima autem justi, sedes sapiéntiæ, dum cælum dícitur sedes Dei, cælum ergo est ánima justi.

From the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 22:1-14
At that time, Jesus spoke by parables unto the chief priests and Pharisees, and said: The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son. And so on.

Homily by Pope St. Gregory the Great.
38th on the Gospels
I remember that I have often said that, in the Holy Gospel, the Church as she now is, is called the kingdom of heaven, for the kingdom of heaven is indeed the assembly of the righteous. The Lord hath said by the mouth of His Prophet: The heaven is My throne. Isa. lxvi. 1. Solomon saith: The throne of wisdom is the soul of the righteous. And Paul saith that Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. 1 Cor. i. 24. From these passages we may clearly gather that if wisdom be God, and wisdom's throne be the soul of the righteous, and God's throne be the heaven, then the soul of the righteous is heaven. Hence also the Psalmist saith, speaking of holy preachers: The heavens declare the glory of God. xviii. 2.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The sun shone upon the shields of gold, and the mountains glistered therewith;
* And the army of the heathens was spread abroad.
V. For the army was very great and mighty then Judas and his host drew near and entered into battle.

Tunc enim Deus Pater Deo Fílio suo nuptias fecit, quando hunc in útero Vírginis humanæ natúræ conjunxit, quando Deum ante sæcula fíeri vóluit hóminem in fine sæculórum.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Duo Séraphim clamábant alter ad álterum:
* Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth: * Plena est omnis terra glória ejus.
V. Tres sunt qui testimónium dant in cælo: Pater, Verbum, et Spíritus Sanctus: et hi tres unum sunt.
R. Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Plena est omnis terra glória ejus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 8
The kingdom of heaven, therefore, is the Church of the righteous, even of them whose hearts seek not for anything upon earth, but who sigh so continually after the things which are above, that God doth already reign in them as He doth in heaven. Let it then be said, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son. Ye already understand, my loving friends, who is that Royal Father of a Royal Son. It is indeed no other than He to Whom the Psalmist saith: Give the King thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the King's son. lxxi. 2. Which made a marriage for his son. God the Father made a marriage for God the Son, when He wedded Him to the manhood in the womb of the Virgin, when He willed that He Who is God before all ages, should in the end of the ages become Man.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. One Seraph cried unto another:
* Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory.
V. There are Three That bear record in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost, and these Three are One.
R. Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God of hosts.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. The whole earth is full of His glory.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Sed quia ex duabus persónis fíeri solet ista nuptialis conjúnctio; absit hoc ab intelléctibus nostris, ut personam Dei et hóminis Redemptoris nostri Jesu Christi, ex duabus persónis credámus unítam. Ex duabus quippe atque in duabus hunc natúris exsistere dicimus; sed ex duabus persónis compositum credi, ut nefas vitamus. Apertius ergo atque securius dici potest, quia in hoc Pater Regi Fílio nuptias fecit, quo ei per incarnatiónis mystérium sanctam Ecclésiam sociávit. Uterus autem Genitrícis Vírginis, hujus sponsi thálamus fuit. Unde et Psalmista dicit: In sole pósuit tabernáculum suum, et ipse tamquam sponsus procédens de thálamo suo.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Te ergo quǽsumus, tuis fámulis súbveni, * quos pretióso sánguine redemísti.

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

Reading 9
The marriage union is the union of two persons, but God forbid that we should imagine that the One Person of our Redeemer Jesus Christ, Who is both God and Man, is formed by a union of an human person with a Divine Person. We profess concerning Him that He is of, and in two natures, but we shrink from the blasphemy of saying that He is compounded of two persons. It will therefore be clearer and safer to say that the marriage which the Father made for His Royal Son was the wedding Him, through the mystery of the Incarnation, to His mystic Bride the Holy Church. The womb of the Maiden Mother was the marriage chamber in which this union took place. Hence it is that the Psalmist saith: In the sun hath He set His tabernacle, Who is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber. xviii. 6.2
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.
