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;

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Placáre, Christe, sérvulis,
Quibus Patris cleméntiam
Tuæ ad tribúnal grátiæ
Patróna Virgo póstulat.

Et vos beáta, per novem
Distíncta gyros ágmina,
Antíqua cum præséntibus,
Futúra damna péllite.

Apóstoli cum Vátibus,
Apud sevérum Júdicem,
Veris reórum flétibus
Expóscite indulgéntiam.

Vos, purpuráti mártyres,
Vos candidáti prǽmio
Confessiónis, éxsules
Vocáte nos in pátriam.

Choréa casta vírginum,
Et quos erémus íncolas
Transmísit astris, cǽlitum
Locáte nos in sédibus.

Auférte gentem pérfidam
Credéntium de fínibus,
Ut unus omnes únicum
Ovíle nos Pastor regat.

Deo Patri sit glória,
Natóque Patris único,
Sancto simul Paráclito,
In sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
O Christ, thy guilty people spare!
Lo, kneeling at thy gracious throne,
thy Virgin-Mother pours her prayer,
Imploring pardon for her own.

Ye angels, happy evermore!
Who in your circles nine ascend,
As ye have guarded us before,
So still from harm our steps defend.

Ye prophets and Apostles high!
Behold our penitential tears;
And plead for us when death is nigh,
our all-searching judge appears.

Ye martyrs all! a purple band,
And confessors, a white-robed train;
Oh, call us to our native land,
From this our exile, back again.

And ye, O choirs of virgins chaste!
Receive us to your seats on high;
With hermits whom the desert waste
Sent up of old into the sky.

Drive from the flock, O Spirit blest!
The false and faithless race away;
That all within one fold may rest,
Secure beneath one shepherd's sway.

To God the Father glory be,
And to his sole-begotten Son;
And glory, Holy Ghost, to thee,
While everlasting ages run.
Amen.

1 Et factus est sermo Dómini ad me, dicens:
2 Fili hóminis, vaticináre ad prophétas Israël, qui prophétant, et dices prophetántibus de corde suo: Audíte verbum Dómini.
3 Hæc dicit Dóminus Deus: Væ prophétis insipiéntibus, qui sequúntur spíritum suum, et nihil vident!
4 Quasi vulpes in desértis prophétæ tui, Israël, erant.
5 Non ascendístis ex advérso, neque opposuístis murum pro domo Israël, ut starétis in prǽlio in die Dómini.
6 Vident vana, et divínant mendácium, dicéntes: Ait Dóminus, cum Dóminus non míserit eos, et perseveravérunt confirmáre sermónem.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

Lesson from the book of Ezekiel
Ezek 13:1-6
1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
2 Son of man, prophesy thou against the prophets of Israel that prophesy: and thou shalt say to them that prophesy out of their own heart: Hear ye the word of the Lord:
3 Thus saith the Lord God: Woe to the foolish prophets that follow their own spirit, and see nothing.
4 Thy prophets, O Israel, were like foxes in the deserts.
5 You have not gone up to face the enemy, nor have you set up a wall for the house of Israel, to stand in battle in the day of the Lord.
6 They see vain things, and they foretell lies, saying: The Lord saith: whereas the Lord hath not sent them: and they have persisted to confirm what they have said.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and the whole earth was full of His glory;
* And His train filled the temple.
V. Above it stood the Seraphim each one had six wings.
R. And His train filled the temple.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.

9 Et erit manus mea super prophétas, qui vident vana et divínant mendácium: in consílio pópuli mei non erunt, et in scriptúra domus Israël non scribéntur, nec in terram Israël ingrediéntur, et sciétis quia ego Dóminus Deus.
10 Eo quod decéperint pópulum meum, dicéntes: Pax, et non est pax, et ipse ædificábat paríetem, illi autem liniébant eum luto absque páleis.

Ezek 13:7-10
7 Have you not seen a vain vision and spoken a lying divination: and you say: The Lord saith: whereas I have not spoken.
8 Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Because you have spoken vain things, and have seen lies: therefore behold I come against you, saith the Lord God.
9 And my hand shall be upon the prophets that see vain things, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the council of my people, nor shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel, and you shall know that I am the Lord God.
10 Because they have deceived my people, saying: Peace, and there is no peace: and the people built up a wall, and they daubed it with dirt without straw.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Look down, O Lord, from the dwelling-place of thine holiness, and take thought for us. O my God, incline thine ear, and hear.

12 Síquidem ecce cécidit páries; numquid non dicétur vobis: Ubi est litúra quam linístis?
13 Proptérea hæc dicit Dóminus Deus: Et erúmpere fáciam spíritum tempestátum in indignatióne mea, et imber inúndans in furóre meo erit, et lápides grandes in ira in consumptiónem,

Ezek 13:11-14
11 Say to them that daub without tempering, that it shall fall: for there shall be an overflowing shower, and I will cause great hailstones to fall violently from above, and a stormy wind to throw it down.
12 Behold, when the wall is fallen: shall it not be said to you: Where is the daubing wherewith you have daubed it?
13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Lo, I will cause a stormy wind to break forth in my indignation, and there shall be an overflowing shower in my anger: and great hailstones in my wrath to consume.
14 And I will break down the wall that you have daubed with untempered mortar.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Consider, O Lord, how that the city sitteth solitary that was full of riches; how is she become as a widow, she that was great among the nations;

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.

67:14 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.

67:23 Dixit Dóminus: Ex Basan convértam, * convértam in profúndum maris:

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.

Ex libro sancti Cypriáni Epíscopi et Martyris de mortalitáte
In fine.
Considerandum est, fratres dilectissimi, et identidem cogitandum, renuntiasse nos mundo, et tamquam hospites et peregrinos hic interim degere. Amplectamur diem, qui assignat singulos domicilio suo, qui nos istinc ereptos, et laqueis sæcularibus exsolutos, paradiso restituit, et regno cælesti. Quis non peregre constitutus properaret in patriam regredi? Quis non ad suos navigare festinans, ventum prosperum cupidius optaret, ut velociter caros liceret amplecti?
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Præcúrsor Dómini venit, de quo ipse testátur:
* Nullus major inter natos mulíerum Joánne Baptísta.
V. Hic est enim prophéta, et plus quam prophéta, de quo Salvátor ait.
R. Nullus major inter natos mulíerum Joánne Baptísta.

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

From the Book upon Death, written by the holy Martyr Cyprian, Bishop (of Carthage.)
At end
Dearly beloved brethren, we should keep well in our mind and thoughts that we are living here meanwhile as strangers and pilgrims. Let us hail that day which will see us each at home in one of the many mansions, which will see us delivered hence, and disentangled from the nets and snares of things temporal, and put us back into the Garden of Eden, and into the kingdom of heaven. Is there any in a far country but is quick to make his way to his Fatherland? Was ever any in haste to make his voyage homeward, but longed for a fair wind, that he might the sooner embrace his loved ones?
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Fore-runner of the Lord cometh, to whom He Himself bare witness, saying:
* Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist.
V. A Prophet? Yea, and much more than a Prophet. This is he of whom the Saviour saith:
R. Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Patriam nostram paradisum computamus, parentes Patriarchas habere jam cæpimus: quid non properamus et currimus, ut patriam nostram videre, ut parentes salutare possimus? Magnus illic nos carorum numerus exspectat, parentum, fratrum, filiorum frequens nos et copiosa turba desiderat, jam de sua immortalitate secura, et adhuc de nostra salute sollicita. Ad horum conspectum et complexum venire, quanta et illis et nobis in commune lætitia est! Qualis illic cælestium regnorum voluptas sine timore moriendi, et cum æternitate vivendi! Quam summa et perpetua felicitas!
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Isti sunt qui vivéntes in carne, plantavérunt Ecclésiam sánguine suo:
* Cálicem Dómini bibérunt, et amíci Dei facti sunt.
V. In omnem terram exívit sonus eórum, et in fines orbis terræ verba eórum.
R. Cálicem Dómini bibérunt, et amíci Dei facti sunt.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
We reckon Paradise to be our home; already we begin to have the Patriarchs for our kinsmen. Why should we not make haste and run, to see our home, and to greet our kinsfolk? There are a great many of those we love waiting for us there father, and mother, and brothers, and children, there in great company they await us, they who are sure now never to die any more, but not yet sure of us. O, when we come to see them and to embrace them, what gladness will it be both for us and for them! O, what will be the brightness of life in that heavenly kingdom where there is no more fear of death, but the certainty of living everlastingly! O, what consummated, O, what enduring happiness?
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. These are they who while yet they lived in the flesh, planted the Church in their own blood;
* They drank of the Lord's cup, and became the friends of God.
V. Their sound is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.
R. They drank of the Lord's cup, and became the friends of God.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ignem sui amóris accéndat Deus in córdibus nostris. Amen.

Illic Apostolorum gloriosus chorus, illic Prophetarum exsultantium numerus, illic Mártyrum innumerabilis populus, ob certaminis et passionis victoriam coronatus. Triumphantes illic Virgines, quæ concupiscentiam carnis et corporis continentiæ robore subegerunt. Remunerati misericordes, qui alimentis et largitionibus pauperum justitiæ opera fecerunt, qui Dominica præcepta servantes ad cælestes thesauros terrena patrimonia transtulerunt. Ad hos, fratres dilectissimi avida cupiditate properemus, et cum his cito esse, ut cito ad Christum venire contingat, optemus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

Benediction. May the Spirit's fire Divine in our hearts enkindled shine. Amen.

There is the glorious company of the Apostles, there is the jubilant fellowship of the Prophets, there is the countless army of Martyrs crowned for victory in strife and in suffering. There triumph the virgins who by noble self-control have tamed the desires of the flesh and of the body. There are repaid with mercy the merciful, who by feeding and gifting the needy, have wrought righteousness, have kept the commandments of the Lord, and have exchanged heritages upon earth for treasures in heaven. Thitherward, dearly beloved brethren, let us eagerly run, with such as these soon to be, unto Christ soon to come, let us be fain.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O ye My Saints, who, being in the flesh, didst have striving
* I will render unto you a reward of your labours.
V. Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom
R. I will render unto you a reward of your labours.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. I will render unto you a reward of your labours.

Psalm 68(2-13) [7]
68:2 Save me, O God: for the waters are come in even unto my soul.
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.
68:5 They are multiplied above the hairs of my head, * who hate me without cause.
68:5 My enemies are grown strong who have wrongfully persecuted me: * then did I pay that which I took not away.
68:6 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; * and my offences are not hidden from thee.
68:7 Let not them be ashamed for me, who look for thee, O Lord, * the Lord of hosts.
68:7 Let them not be confounded on my account, * who seek thee, O God of Israel.
68:8 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; * shame hath covered my face.
68:9 I am become a stranger to my brethren, * and an alien to the sons of my mother.
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.

68:16 Non me demérgat tempéstas aquæ, neque absórbeat me profúndum: * neque úrgeat super me púteus os suum.
68:17 Exáudi me, Dómine, quóniam benígna est misericórdia tua: * secúndum multitúdinem miseratiónum tuárum réspice in me.

68:20 Tu scis impropérium meum, et confusiónem meam, * et reveréntiam meam.

68:16 Let not the tempest of water drown me, nor the deep swallow me up: * and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
68:17 Hear me, O Lord, for thy mercy is kind; * look upon me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
68:18 And turn not away thy face from thy servant: * for I am in trouble, hear me speedily.
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.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum
Matt 5:1-12
In illo témpore: Videns Jesus turbas, ascendit in montem, et cum sedisset, accesserunt ad eum discipuli ejus. Et réliqua.

De Homilia sancti Augustíni Epíscopi
Liber 1 de Sermone Domini in monte, cap. 5
Beati eritis, inquit, cum vobis maledicent, et persequentur vos, et dicent omne malum adversum vos mentientes, propter me: gaudete et exsultate, quoniam merces vestra multa est in cælis. Animadvertat quisquis delicias hujus sæculi, et facultates rerum temporalium quærit in nomine christiano, intrinsecus esse beatitudinem nostram, sicut de anima ecclesiastica ore prophetico dicitur: Omnis gloria ejus filiæ regis ab intus. Nam extrinsecus maledicta, et persecutiones, et detractiones promittuntur de quibus tamen magna merces est in cælis, quæ sentitur in corde patientium, eorum qui jam possunt dicere: Gloriamur in tribulationibus: scientes quod tribulatio patientiam operatur, patientia autem probationem, probatio vero spem, spes autem non confundit: quia caritas Dei diffúsa est in cordibus nostris per Spiritum sanctum, qui datus est nobis.
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. 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 5:1-12
At that time Jesus seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain, and when he was set down, his disciples came unto him. And so on.

Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
Bk. i. on the Lord's Sermon.
Blessed are ye, saith the Lord, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad for great is your reward in heaven. If any be seeking under the name of a Christian the pleasures of this world and the possession of temporal goods, let him bethink him that our blessedness is inward, even as the mouth of the Prophet saith concerning the soul of the Church The King's daughter is all glorious within. Ps. xliv. 15. Without, she is reviled, and persecution and evil report are her promised portion. And yet for these very things, great is her reward in heaven, as indeed is felt in the hearts of the sufferers, at least of such as are able already to say But we glory in tribulations also; knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope; and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost, Which is given unto us. Rom. v. 3-5.
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. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Quorum festum cólimus, ipsi intercédant pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Non enim ista perpeti fructuosum est, sed ista pro Christi nomine non solum æquo animo, sed étiam cum exsultatione tolerare. Nam multi hæretici nomine christiano animas decipientes, multa talia patiuntur: sed ideo excluduntur ab ista mercede, quia non dictum est tantum: Beati qui persecutionem patiuntur, sed additum est: Propter justitiam. Ubi autem sana fides non est, non potest esse justitia: quia justus ex fide vivit. Neque schismatici aliquid sibi ex ista mercede promittant: quia similiter, ubi caritas non est, non potest esse justitia. Dilectio enim proximi malum non operatur: quam si haberent, non dilaniarent corpus Christi, quod est Ecclesia.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Média nocte clamor factus est:
* Ecce sponsus venit, exíte óbviam ei.
V. Prudéntes vírgines, aptáte vestras lámpades.
R. Ecce sponsus venit, exíte óbviam ei.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Ecce sponsus venit, exíte óbviam ei.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. They whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocates with God. Amen

Reading 8
To suffer such things is not in itself fruitful; what is fruitful, is to bear them for Christ's Name's sake not calmly only but gladly. There are a great many heretics who mislead souls under the name of Christians, and they suffer such things plentifully, but they are cut out from the reward, for it is not said only Blessed are they which are persecuted, but Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake. Where there is not sound faith there cannot be righteousness, for the just shall live by faith. Heb. x. 38. Neither let schismatics promise themselves any of that reward, for as righteousness cannot exist where there is no faith, so neither can it exist where there is no love. And schismatics have no love, for love worketh no ill to his neighbour, (Rom. xiii. 10,) and if they had it, they would not tear the Body of Christ, which is the Church.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. At midnight there was a cry made:
* Behold, the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet him.
V. Trim your lamps, O ye wise virgins.
R. Behold, the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet him.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Behold, the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet him.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Quid ergo dicit? Beáti páuperes spíritu: quóniam ipsórum est regnum cælórum. Légimus scriptum de appetitióne rerum temporálium: Omnia vánitas, et præsúmptio spíritus. Præsúmptio autem spíritus, audáciam et supérbiam signíficat. Vulgo étiam magnos spíritus supérbi habére dicúntur: et recte, quandóquidem spíritus étiam ventus vocátur. Unde scriptum est: Ignis, grando, nix, glácies, spíritus procellárum. Quis vero nésciat supérbos inflátos dici, tamquam vento disténtos? Unde est étiam illud Apóstoli: Sciéntia inflat, cáritas vero ædíficat. Quaprópter recte hic intellegúntur páuperes spíritu, húmiles et timéntes Deum, id est, non habéntes inflántem spíritum.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.


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

(Fit reverentia) Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus * Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.

Pleni sunt cæli et terra * majestátis glóriæ tuæ.
Te gloriósus * Apostolórum chorus,
Te Prophetárum * laudábilis númerus,
Te Mártyrum candidátus * laudat exércitus.
Te per orbem terrárum * sancta confitétur Ecclésia,
Patrem * imménsæ majestátis;
Venerándum tuum verum * et únicum Fílium;
Sanctum quoque * Paráclitum Spíritum.
Tu Rex glóriæ, * Christe.
Tu Patris * sempitérnus es Fílius.

Fit reverentia
Tu, ad liberándum susceptúrus hóminem: * non horruísti Vírginis úterum.

Tu, devícto mortis acúleo, * aperuísti credéntibus regna cælórum.
Tu ad déxteram Dei sedes, * in glória Patris.
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.

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 now, what saith He? Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. We have read where it is written concerning the lusting after temporal things: The wandering of the desire is vanity and presumption of spirit. Eccl. vi. 9. Presumption of spirit signifieth rashness and pride. We are used to say of proud people that they are men of high spirit, and we say well, since spirit is only one of the Latin names for wind. It is so used, for instance, in Ps. cxlviii. 8, Fire, hail, snow, ice, stormy wind. Who hath not heard the proud spoken of as puffed up, as if they were blown out with wind? Hence, alas, the Apostle saith: Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. 1 Cor. viii. 1. By the poor in spirit, who are here called blessed, are rightly to be understood such as are lowly and fear God, that is, have not got minds puffed up with windy vanity.
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.
