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.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Iste Conféssor Dómini, coléntes
Quem pie laudant pópuli per orbem,
Hac die lætus méruit beátas
Scándere sedes.

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,
Totíus 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
Erst on this feast-day merited to enter
Into his glory.

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.

De Epístola prima beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Timothéum
1 Tim 3:1-7
1 Fidélis sermo: si quis episcopátum desíderat, bonum opus desíderat.
2 Opórtet ergo epíscopum irreprehensíbilem esse, uníus uxóris virum, sóbrium, prudéntem, ornátum, pudícum, hospitálem, doctórem,
3 Non vinoléntum, non percussórem, sed modéstum; non litigiósum, non cúpidum, sed
4 Suæ dómui bene præpósitum, fílios habéntem súbditos cum omni castitáte.
5 Si quis autem dómui suæ præésse nescit, quómodo Ecclésiæ Dei diligéntiam habébit?
6 Non neóphytum, ne in supérbiam elátus, in judícium íncidat diáboli.
7 Opórtet autem illum et testimónium habére bonum ab iis qui foris sunt, ut non in oppróbrium íncidat, et in láqueum diáboli.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Hic est Martínus, eléctus Dei Póntifex, cui Dóminus post Apóstolos tantam grátiam conférre dignátus est,
* Ut in virtúte Trinitátis Deíficæ mererétur fíeri trium mortuórum suscitátor magníficus.

Reading 1
Lesson from the first letter of St. Paul the Apostle to Timothy
1 Tim 3:1-7
1 A faithful saying: if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
2 It behoveth therefore a bishop to be blameless, the husband of one wife, sober, prudent, of good behaviour, chaste, given to hospitality, a teacher,
3 Not given to wine, no striker, but modest, not quarrelsome, not covetous, but
4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all chastity.
5 But if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?
6 Not a neophyte: lest being puffed up with pride, he fall into the judgment of the devil.
7 Moreover he must have a good testimony of them who are without: lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. This is that Martin whom God chose to be an High Priest unto Himself, he upon whom the Lord was pleased to bestow favour like as upon His Apostles;
* So that he prevailed gloriously in the power of the Divine Trinity three times to raise the dead to life.
V. Martin confessed the faith of the Holy Trinity.
R. So that he prevailed gloriously in the power of the Divine Trinity three times to raise the dead to life.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adjuváre dignétur. Amen.

De Epístola ad Titum
Titus 1:7-11
7 Opórtet enim epíscopum sine crímine esse, sicut Dei dispensatórem: non supérbum, non iracúndum, non vinoléntum, non percussórem, non turpis lucri cúpidum:
8 Sed hospitálem, benígnum, sóbrium, justum, sanctum, continéntem,
9 Amplecténtem eum, qui secúndum doctrínam est, fidélem sermónem: ut potens sit exhortári in doctrína sana, et eos qui contradícunt, argúere.
10 Sunt enim multi étiam inobediéntes, vaníloqui, et seductóres: máxime qui de circumcisióne sunt:
11 Quos opórtet redárgui: qui univérsas domos subvértunt, docéntes quæ non opórtet, turpis lucri grátia.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Dómine, si adhuc pópulo tuo sum necessarius, non recuso subire propter eos labórem:
* Fiat volúntas tua.
V. Oculis ac mánibus in cælum semper intentus, invictum ab oratióne spíritum non relaxábat.
R. Fiat volúntas tua.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Son, the Sole-begotten, mercifully bless and keep us. Amen.

From the letter of St. Paul the Apostle to Titus
Titus 1:7-11
7 For a bishop must be without crime, as the steward of God: not proud, not subject to anger, not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre:
8 But given to hospitality, gentle, sober, just, holy, continent:
9 Embracing that faithful word which is according to doctrine, that he may be able to exhort in sound doctrine, and to convince the gainsayers.
10 For there are also many disobedient, vain talkers, and seducers: especially they who are of the circumcision:
11 Who must be reproved, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Lord, if I be still needful to thy people, I refuse not to work for them.
* Thy will be done.
V. With eyes and hands lifted up to heaven, he never let his mighty spirit slacken in prayer.
R. Thy will be done.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Spíritus Sancti grátia illúminet sensus et corda nostra. Amen.

4 Ut prudéntiam dóceant adolescéntulas, ut viros suos ament, fílios suos díligant,
5 Prudéntes, castas, sóbrias, domus curam habéntes, benígnas, súbditas viris suis, ut non blasphemétur verbum Dei.
6 Iúvenes simíliter hortáre ut sóbrii sint.
7 In ómnibus teípsum præbe exémplum bonórum óperum, in doctrína, in integritáte, in gravitáte,

V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. O beátum virum Martínum antístitem,
* Qui nec mori tímuit, nec vívere recusávit!
V. Dómine, si adhuc pópulo tuo sum necessárius, non recúso labórem: fiat volúntas tua.
R. Qui nec mori tímuit, nec vívere recusávit!
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Qui nec mori tímuit, nec vívere recusavit!
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the grace of the Holy Spirit enlighten all our hearts and minds. Amen.

Titus 2:1-8
1 But speak thou the things that become sound doctrine:
2 That the aged men be sober, chaste, prudent, sound in faith, in love, in patience.
3 The aged women, in like manner, in holy attire, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teaching well:
4 That they may teach the young women to be wise, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 To be discreet, chaste, sober, having a care of the house, gentle, obedient to their husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
6 Young men, in like manner, exhort that they be sober.

V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

Martin was born at Sabaria in Pannonia. When he was ten years old he went to the Church, in the spite of his (heathen) father and mother, and by his own will was numbered among the Catechumens. At fifteen years of age he joined the army, and served as a soldier first under Constantius and then under Julian. Once at the gate of Amiens a poor man asked him for an alms for Christ's name's sake, and since he had nothing to his hand but his arms and his clothes, he gave him half of his cloak. In the night following Christ appeared to him clad in the half of his cloak, and saying (to the angels who bare Him company) While Martin is yet a Catechumen, he hath clad Me in this garment.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. With eyes and hands lifted up to heaven
* He never let his mighty spirit slacken in prayer.

Decem et octo annos cum haberet, baptizátus est. Quare, relícta militari vita, ad Hilárium Pictaviensem episcopum se cóntulit, a quo in acolythórum númerum redáctus est. Post, factus epíscopus Turonénsis, monastérium ædificávit, ubi cum octogínta monachis sanctíssime aliquámdiu vixit. Qui, cum póstea ad Candacensem vicum suæ diœcesis in gravem febrim incidísset, assidua Deum oratióne precabátur, ut se ex illo mortali carcere liberaret. Quem audiéntes discípuli, sic rogábant: Cur nos, pater déseris? cui nos miseros derelinquis? Quorum voce commótus Martínus, ita Deum orábat: Dómine, si adhuc pópulo tuo sum necessarius, non recuso labórem.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Beátus Martínus óbitum suum longe ante præscívit, dixitque frátribus,

At eighteen years of age he was baptized. He gave up thereupon the life of a soldier, and betook himself to Hilary, Bishop of Poietiers, by whom he was placed in the order of Acolytes. Being afterwards made Bishop of Tours, he built a monastery wherein he lived in holiness for a while in company of four-score monks. At the last he fell sick of a grievous fever at Cande, a village in his diocese, and besought God in constant prayer to set him free from the prison of this dying body. His disciples heard him and said Father, why wilt thou go away from us? unto whom wilt thou bequeath us in our sorrow? Their words moved Martin, and he said Lord, if I be still needful to thy people, I refuse not to work.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Blessed Martin knew of his own death of a long time before it came to pass, and he said unto the brethren:
* That the dissolution of his body was nigh at hand, for he deemed himself to be already breaking up.

Sed, cum eum in illa veheménti febre supinum orántem vidérent discípuli, suppliciter ab eo petiérunt, ut, converso corpore, tantísper, dum remítteret morbi vis, pronus conquiésceret. Quibus Martínus, Sínite me, inquit, cælum potius quam terram aspicere, ut, suo jam itinere iturus ad Dóminum, spíritus dirigátur. Instante jam morte, viso humani generis hoste, Quid, inquit, astas, cruénta bestia? nihil in me funeste reperies. Ea in voce, unum et octogínta annos natus, ánimam Deo réddidit; quam Angelórum chorus excepit, eosque divinas canéntes laudes multi, in primisque sanctus Severinus Coloniénsis epíscopus, audiérunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

Reading 6
When his disciples saw him, in the height of the fever, lying upon his back and praying, they entreated him to turn over and take a little rest upon his side while the violence of his sickness would allow him. But Martin answered them Suffer me to look heavenward rather than earthward, that my spirit may see the way whereby it is so soon going to the Lord. At the moment of death he saw the enemy of mankind, and cried out: What are you come here for, you bloody brute? You murderer, you'll find nothing in me. With these words on his lips, he gave up his soul to God, being aged eighty years. He was received by a company of Angels, who were heard praising God by many persons, especially by holy Severinus, Bishop of Cologne.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. His disciples said unto blessed Martin: Father, why wilt thou go away from us, and with whom wilt thou leave us orphans?
* For ravening wolves will break in upon thy flock.
V. We know that thou wouldest fain be with Christ, but, sooner or later, thy reward is sure. Rather, then, have pity upon us, whom thou art leaving.
R. For ravening wolves will break in upon thy flock.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. For ravening wolves will break in upon thy flock.

From the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 11:33-36
In that time: Jesus said to his discoples: No man lighteth a candle, and putteth it in a hidden place, nore under a bushel; but upon a candlestick, that they that come in, may see the light. And so on.

Homily by St. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan.
Bk. vii. Comment, on Luke xi.
In that which goeth before, Christ hath set the Church before the synagogue, and He exhorteth us rather to trust in the Church. The candle is faith, even as it is written thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Ps. cxviii. 105.) Our faith is the word of God. The word of God is light. Faith is the candle. It is written concerning the Word of God, that That was the true Light, Which lighteth every man that cometh into this world. John i. 9. But a candle cannot shine, unless it be lighted from some other fire.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Blessed indeed was this man, at the time of whose passing the Saints sang in company, a band of Angels shouted aloud for joy
* And an army of all the Powers of heaven came out to meet him, singing praises.
V. His strength is a stay to the Church, his manifestation a glory to the Priests of God; Michael and his Angels took him away.
R. And an army of all the Powers of heaven came out to meet him, singing praises.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Hæc est Lucerna quæ accénditur, virtus scilicet nostræ mentis et sensus, ut drachma illa possit, quæ períerat, reperiri. Nemo ergo fidem sub lege constituat; lex enim intra mensúram est, ultra mensúram grátia; lex obumbrat, grátia clarificat. Et ideo nemo fidem suam intra mensúram legis includat, sed ad Ecclésiam cónferat, in qua septiformis Spíritus relucet grátia, quam Princeps ille sacerdotum fulgóre supernæ divinitátis illúminat, ne eam legis umbra restinguat. Denique lucérna illa, quam matutínis vespertinisque tempóribus, ritu veteri Judæórum, princeps sacerdotum solebat accéndere, velut sub módio sita legis, evanuit; et cívitas illa Jerúsalem quæ in terris est, quæ occídit prophétas, quasi in convalle fletus posita delitescit. Illa autem Jerúsalem quæ in cælo est, in qua militat fides nostra, in illo altíssimo ómnium locáta monte, hoc est Christo, non potest ténebris et ruínis hujus mundi abscóndi; sed fulgens candore Solis æterni, luce nos gratiæ spiritalis illúminat.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Martínus Abrahæ sinu lætus excipitur: Martínus, hic pauper et módicus,
* Cælum dives ingréditur, hymnis cæléstibus honorátur.
V. Martínus epíscopus migrávit a sæculo: vivit in Christo gemma sacerdotum.
R. Cælum dives ingréditur, hymnis cæléstibus honorátur.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Cælum dives ingréditur, hymnis cæléstibus honorátur.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
Also it is written What woman, having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it? Luke xv. 8. And here the candle lighted to find the lost piece is the strength in our understandings and affections. Let no man therefore seek faith under the law. For the law is by measure, but grace without measure; the law overshadoweth, but grace enlighteneth. And therefore let no man shut up his faith within the measure of the law, but give it unto the Church, the Church, wherein shineth the sevenfold grace of the Spirit, and whereon the Divine glory of the Great High Priest doth strike from heaven, lest the shadow of the law should rest any more at all upon her. Under the old law there was the sevenfold lamp which the Priest of the Jews lighted every morning and every evening, and this was as it were a candle put under a bushel. That Jerusalem which is upon earth, that Jerusalem which killed the Prophets, lieth hid, as it were, in a dark place in the valley of tears. But that Jerusalem which is in heaven, whereof by faith we are soldiers, is a city set upon the highest of all mountains, even upon Christ. Her the darkness and tempests of earth cannot hide, but she blazeth with the glory of the Eternal Sun, and maketh to fall upon us the light of spiritual grace.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Martin was carried joyfully into Abraham's bosom. Martin, who was poor here and of small estimation,
* Etereth rich into heaven, and the songs of heaven are raised in his honour.
V. Bishop Martin, that jewel of Priests, goeth away from time, liveth in Christ.
R. Entereth rich into heaven, and the songs of heaven are raised in his honour.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Entereth rich into heaven, and the songs of heaven are raised in his honour.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Per evangélica dicta, deleántur nostra delícta. Amen.

Commemoratio Dominica
Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum
Matt 13:24-30
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus turbis parábolam hanc: Simile factum est regnum cælórum hómini, qui seminávit bonum semen in agro suo. Et réliqua.

Homilía S. Augustíni Epíscopi
Liber Quæst. Evang. in Matth. cap. 11, tom. 4
Cum negligéntius ágerent præpósiti Ecclésiæ, aut cum dormitiónem mórtis accíperent Apóstoli, venit diabólus, et superseminávit eos, quos malos fílios Dóminus interpretátur. Sed quǽritur: utrum hærétici sint, an male vivéntes cathólici? Possunt enim dici fílii mali étiam hærétici, quia ex eódem Evangélii sémine, et Christi nómine procreáti, pravis opiniónibus ad falsa dógmata convertúntur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Reading 9
Commemoration of Sunday
From the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 13:24-30
At that time, Jesus said to the people a parable: The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man that sowed good seeds in his field. And so on.

Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
Quest. Evang. Matth. xi, Bk. 4
When the Shepherds of the Church wax careless, and since the Apostles sleep the sleep of death, cometh the devil, and soweth them whom the Lord calleth a seed of evil-doers. Now, are these seed of evil-doers the heretics, or Catholics of bad lives? It is possible to call even the heretics a seed of evil-doers because they have sprung up from the seed of the Gospel, and been begotten in the Name of Christ, though afterwards they have turned after crooked ways and lying doctrines.
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.
