Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Urbs beáta Jerúsalem,
Dicta pacis vísio,
Quæ constrúitur in cælis
Vivis ex lapídibus,
Et Angelis coronáta
Ut sponsáta cómite.

Nova véniens e cælo,
Nuptiáli thálamo
Præparáta, ut sponsáta
Copulétur Dómino:
Platéæ et muri ejus
Ex auro puríssimo.

Portæ nitent margarítis
Ádytis paténtibus,
Et virtúte meritórum
Illuc introdúcitur
Omnis qui ob Christi nomen
Hic in mundo prémitur.

Tunsiónibus, pressúris
Expolíti lápides,
Suis coaptántur locis
Per manus artíficis,
Disponúntur permansúri
Sacris ædifíciis.

Glória et honor Deo
Usquequáqu[e] altíssimo,
Una Patri, Filióque,
Inclyto Paráclito,
Cui laus est et potéstas
Per ætérna sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
Blessed city, heavenly Salem,
vision dear of peace and love,
who of living stones art builded
in the height of heaven above,
and, with angel hosts encircled,
as a bride dost earthward move;

from celestial realms descending,
bridal glory round thee shed,
meet for him whose love espoused thee,
to thy Lord shalt thou be led;
all thy streets and all thy bulwarks
of pure gold are fashioned.

Bright thy gates of pearl are shining;
they are open evermore;
and by virtue of his merits
thither faithful souls do soar,
who for Christ's dear Name in this world
pain and tribulation bore.

Many a blow and biting sculpture
polished well those stones elect,
in their places now compacted
by the heavenly Architect,
who therewith hath willed for ever
that his palace should be decked.

Laud and honor to the Father,
laud and honor to the Son,
laud and honor to the Spirit,
ever Three, and ever One,
consubstantial, coeternal,
while unending ages run.
Amen.

Ritus, quos in consecrándis ecclésiis et altáribus Romána servat Ecclésia, beátus Silvéster Papa primus instítuit. Nam, etsi jam ab Apostolórum témpore loca fuérunt Deo dicáta, quæ a quibúsdam oratória, ab áliis ecclésiæ dicebántur, ubi colléctæ fiébant per unam sábbati, et christiánus pópulus oráre, Dei verbum audíre et Eucharístiam súmere sólitus erat; non tamen illa ádeo solémni ritu consecrabántur, nec in eis adhuc in títulum eréctum erat altáre, quod chrísmate delibútum, Dómini nostri Jesu Christi, qui altáre, hóstia et sacérdos noster est, figúram exprímeret.

Reading 5
The Rites whereof the Church of Rome maketh use for the hallowing of Churches and Altars were first instituted by the blessed Pope Sylvester. From the very time of the Apostles there had been places set apart for God, where assemblies took place upon the first day of every week, and where the Christians were used to pray, to hear the word of God, and to receive the Eucharist, which places were by some called Oratories and by others Churches. But these places were not dedicated with so solemn a form, nor did they set up therein an Altar for a pillar, and pour chrism thereon, Gen. xxviii. 18, for a figure of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is Himself our Altar, our Victim, and our Priest.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. If they pray toward this place,
* Forgive the sin of thy people, O God, and teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and manifest forth thy glory in this place.
V. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock, thou that sittest upon the cherubim.
R. Forgive the sin of thy people, O God, and teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and manifest forth thy glory in this place.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Sed, ubi Constantínus imperátor per baptísmi sacraméntum sanitátem salutémque consecútus est, tum primum lege ab eo lata concéssum est toto orbe terrárum, Christiáni ut ecclésias ædificárent; quos ille, non solum edícto, sed étiam exémplo ad sacram ædificatiónem est cohortátus. Nam, et in suo Lateranénsi palátio ecclésiam Salvatóri dedicávit, et ei continéntem basílicam nómine sancti Joánnis Baptístæ cóndidit, eo loco quo ipse, baptizátus a sancto Silvéstro, ab infidelitátis lepra mundátus est; quam idem Póntifex consecrávit quinto idus novémbris. Cujus consecratiónis memória celebrátur hodiérno die, quo primum Romæ públice ecclésia consecráta est, et imágo Salvatóris, in paríete depícta, pópulo Románo appáruit.

But when the Emperor Constantine had by the Sacrament of Baptism received health both of body and soul, then first in a law by him published was it allowed to the Christians throughout the whole world to build Churches, to the which holy building he exhorted them by his example as well as by his decree. He dedicated in his own Lateran Palace a Church to the Saviour, and built hard by it a Cathedral in the name of St. John the Baptist, upon the place where he had been baptized by holy Sylvester and cleansed from his leprosy. This Cathedral was hallowed by the said Pope upon the 9th day of November. It is this consecration, the memory whereof is still celebrated upon this day, the first whereon the public consecration of a Church ever took place in Rome, and the image of the Saviour was seen by the Roman people painted upon the wall.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. How dreadful is this place!
* Surely this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
V. This is the house of God, stoutly builded, well founded upon a sure rock.
R. Surely this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

Quod, si beátus Silvéster póstea in consecratióne altáris Príncipis Apostolórum decrévit ut deínceps nisi ex lápide altária non ædificaréntur; tamen basílicæ Lateranénsis altáre fuit e ligno eréctum. Quod mirum non est; nam, cum a sancto Petro usque ad Silvéstrum, propter persecutiónes, Pontífices certo loco consístere non possent, quocúmque eos necéssitas compulísset, sive in cryptas, sive in cœmetéria, sive in ædes piórum, super illo altári lígneo ad arcæ similitúdinem cóncavo, sacra faciébant.

The Blessed Sylvester afterwards decreed, when he was consecrating the Altar of the Prince of the Apostles, that Altars were thenceforward to be made of stone only, but notwithstanding this the Lateran Cathedral hath the altar made of wood. This is not surprising. From St. Peter to Sylvester the Popes had not been able, by reason of persecutions, to abide fixedly in one place, and they celebrated the Holy Liturgy in cellars, in burying-places, in the houses of godly persons, or wherever need drove them, upon a wooden altar made like an empty box.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Jacob rose up early in the morning, and set up the stone for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it, and vowed a vow unto the Lord.
* Surely this place is holy, and I knew it not.
V. And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said
R. Surely this place is holy, and I knew it not.

When peace was given to the Church, holy Sylvester took this box, and to do honour to the Prince of the Apostles, who is said to have offered sacrifice thereon, and to the other Popes who thereon had been used to execute the mystery even unto that time, set it in the first Church, even the Lateran, and ordained that no one but the Bishop of Rome should celebrate the Liturgy thereon for all time coming. The original Lateran Cathedral, cast down and destroyed by fires, pillage, and earthquakes, and renewed by the constant care of the Popes, was at last rebuilt afresh, and solemnly consecrated by Pope Benedict XIII, a Friar Preacher, upon the 28th day of April, in the year 1726, the memory of which Festival he ordained to be kept upon this day. In the year 1884 Leo XIII took in hand a work which had received the sanction of his predecessor Pius IX. The great sanctuary, the walls of which were giving way with age, was lengthened and widened, a task of immense labour. The ancient mosaic had been renewed previously in several places; it was now restored according to the original design, and transferred to the new apse, the embellishment of which was carried out with great magnificence. The transept was redecorated, and its ceiling and woodwork repaired. A sacristy, a residence for the canons, and a portico connecting with the baptistery of Constantine, were added to the existing buildings.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. How lovely are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts! My soul longeth and fainteth
* For the courts of the Lord.
V. They that dwell in thy house, O Lord they shall praise thee for ever and ever.
R. For the courts of the Lord.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. For the courts of the Lord.

From the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 19:1-10
At that time: Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And so on.

Homily by St. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan.
Bk. viii. on Luke.
Zacchaeus was little of stature, that is, he was not raised aloft among men by nobility of birth, and, like the most of the world, he possessed few merits. When he heard that the Lord and Saviour, Who had come unto His Own, and Whom His Own had not received, John i. 11, was coming, he desired to see Him. But the sight of Jesus is not easy; to any on the earth it is impossible. And since Zacchaeus had neither the Prophets, nor yet the Law, as a gracious help to his nature, he climbed up into a sycamore tree, raising his feet above the vanity of the Jews, and straightening the crooked branches of his former life, and therefore he received Jesus to lodge within his house.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. My house shall be called the house of prayer, saith the Lord. Therein, he that asketh, receiveth; he that seeketh, findeth;
* And to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.

Zacchaeus, then, was in the sycamore tree, and the blind man by the way-side, xviii. 35. For the one, Jesus stood waiting to show mercy, and asked him before He healed him, what he would that He should do for him; being unbidden of the other, He bade Himself to be his Guest, knowing how rich was the reward of receiving Him. Nevertheless, albeit He had heard no words of invitation, yet had He seen how his heart went.

Lectio 12
Verum, ne cæcum illum, tamquam fastidiósi páuperum, cito reliquísse videámur et transísse ad dívitem, exspectémus eum, quia exspectávit et Dóminus; interrogémus eum, quia interrogávit et Christus. Nos interrogémus, quia nescímus: ille, quia nóverat. Nos interrogémus, ut sciámus unde iste curátus sit: ille interrogávit, ut in uno plures discerémus unde Dóminum vidére mereámur. Interrogávit enim, ut crederémus, néminem, nisi confiténtem, posse salvári.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Vidi civitátem sanctam Jerúsalem novam, † descendéntem de caelo a Deo parátam:
* Et audívi vocem de throno dicéntem: * Ecce tabernáculam Dei cum homínibus, et habitábit cum eis.
V. Et ipsi pópulus ejus erunt, † et ipse Deus cum eis erit eórum Deus.
R. Et audívi vocem de throno dicéntem: Ecce tabernáculam Dei cum homínibus, et habitábit cum eis.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et audívi vocem de throno dicéntem: Ecce tabernáculam Dei cum homínibus, et habitábit cum eis.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 12
But lest we should seem haughtily to pass by the poor blind man, and to hurry on to the rich one, let us stand waiting for him, as the Lord stood and waited; let us ask of him, as Christ asked of him. Let us ask, because we are ignorant; Christ asked, because He knew. Let us ask, that we may know whence he received his cure; Christ asked, that all of us may know from one example where through we are to earn a sight of the Lord. Christ asked, that we might believe that none, save they that confess Him, can be saved.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
*And I heard a great voice from the throne, saying: Behold the tabernacle of God with men, and he will dwell with them.
V. And they shall be his people; and God himself with them shall be their God.
R. And I heard a great voice from the throne, saying: Behold the tabernacle of God with men, and he will dwell with them.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And I heard a great voice from the throne, saying: Behold the tabernacle of God with men, and he will dwell with them.

Sequéntia +︎ sancti Evangélii secúndum Lucam
R. Glória tibi, Dómine.
Luc 19:1-10
In illo témpore: Ingréssus Jesus perambulábat Jéricho. Et ecce, vir nómine Zachǽus: et hic princeps erat publicanórum, et ipse dives: et quærébat vidére Jesum, quis esset: et non póterat præ turba, quia statúra pusíllus erat. Et præcúrrens ascéndit in árborem sycómorum, ut vidéret eum; quia inde erat transitúrus. Et cum venísset ad locum, suspíciens Jesus vidit illum, et dixit ad eum: Zachǽe, festínans descénde; quia hódie in domo tua opórtet me manére. Et festínans descéndit, et excépit illum gaudens. Et cum vidérent omnes, murmurábant, dicéntes, quod ad hóminem peccatórem divertísset. Stans autem Zachǽus, dixit ad Dóminum: Ecce, dimídium bonórum meórum, Dómine, do paupéribus: et si quid áliquem defraudávi, reddo quádruplum. Ait Jesus ad eum: Quia hódie salus dómui huic facta est: eo quod et ipse fílius sit Abrahæ. Venit enim Fílius hóminis quǽrere et salvum fácere, quod períerat.
R. Amen

Te decet laus, te decet hymnus: tibi glória Deo Patri, et Fílio, cum Spíritu Sancto in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Continuation +︎ of the Holy Gospel according to Luke
R. Glory be to you, O Lord.
Luke 19:1-10
At that time, Jesus entered and was passing through Jericho. And behold there was a man named Zacchaeus; and he was a leading publican, and he was rich. And he was trying to see Jesus, Who He was, but could not, on account of the crowd, because he was small of stature. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for I must stay in your house today.And he made haste and came down, and welcomed Him joyfully. And upon seeing it all began to murmur, saying, He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.But Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, Behold, Lord, I give one-half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it fourfold. Jesus said to him, Today salvation has come to this house, since he, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.
R. Amen
