Ant. The Lord, the King who is to come * O come, let us adore Him.

Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
Ant. The Lord, the King who is to come * O come, let us adore Him.
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. O come, let us adore Him.
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. The Lord, the King who is to come * O come, let us adore Him.
Today if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts: As in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness: where your fathers tempted me, they proved me, and saw my works.
Ant. O come, let us adore Him.
Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart. And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.

Hymnus {ex Psalterio secundum tempora}
Verbum supérnum, pródiens
E Patris ætérni sinu,
Qui natus orbi súbvenis,
Labénte cursu témporis:

Illúmina nunc péctora,
Tuóque amore cóncrema;
Ut cor cadúca déserens
Cæli volúptas ímpleat.

Ut, cum tribúnal Júdicis
Damnábit igni nóxios,
Et vox amíca débitum
Vocábit ad cælum pios;

Non esca flammárum nigros
Volvámur inter túrbines,
Vultu Dei sed cómpotes
Cæli fruámur gáudiis.

* Patri, simulque Fílio,
Tibíque, Sancte Spíritus,
Sicut fuit, sit júgiter
Sæclum per omne glória.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
Celestial Word, to this our earth
Sent down from God's eternal clime,
To save mankind by mortal birth
Into a world of change and time;

Enlighten our hearts; vain hopes destroy;
And in thy love's consuming fire
Fill all the soul with heavenly joy,
And melt the dross of low desire.

So when the Judge of quick and dead
Shall bid his awful summons come,
To whelm the guilty soul with dread,
And call the blessed to their home.

Saved from the whirling, black abyss,
Forevermore to us be given
To share the feast of saintly bliss,
And see the face of God in heaven.

To God the Father and the Son
Our songs with one accord we raise;
And to the Holy Spirit, One
With them, be ever equal praise
Amen.

9:8 Their memory hath perished with a noise. * But the Lord remaineth for ever.
9:9 He hath prepared his throne in judgment: * And he shall judge the world in equity, he shall judge the people in justice.
9:10 And the Lord is become a refuge for the poor: * a helper in due time in tribulation.

9:16 Their foot hath been taken * in the very snare which they hid.
9:17 The Lord shall be known when he executeth judgments: * the sinner hath been caught in the works of his own hands.
9:18 The wicked shall be turned into hell, * all the nations that forget God.
9:19 For the poor man shall not be forgotten to the end: * the patience of the poor shall not perish for ever.

From the Sermons of Pope St. Leo the Great,
8th on the December Fast, and almsgiving.
Our Saviour Himself instructed His disciples concerning the times and seasons of the coming of the Kingdom of God and the end of the world, and He hath given the same teaching to the Church by the mouth of His Apostles. In connection with this subject then, Our Lord biddeth us beware lest we let our hearts grow heavy through excess of meat and drink, and worldly thoughts. Dearly beloved brethren, we know how that this warning applieth particularly to us. We know that that day is coming, and though for a season we know not the very hour, yet this we know, that it is near.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Hail, Mary, full of grace; the Lord is with thee;
* The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore, also that Holy Thing Which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
V. How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the Angel answered and said unto her,
R. The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore, also that Holy Thing Which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.

R. Salvatórem exspectámus, Dóminum Jesum Christum,

Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
Let every man then make himself ready against the coming of the Lord, so that He may not find him making his belly his god, or the world his chief care. Dearly beloved brethren, it is a matter of every day experience that fulness of drink dulleth the keenness of the mind, and that excess of eating unnerveth the strength of the will. The very stomach protesteth that gluttony doth harm to the bodily health, unless temperance get the better of desire, and the thought of the indigestion afterward check the indulgence of the moment.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. We look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ;
* Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious Body.
V. We should live soberly, and righteously, and godly in this present world, looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God.
R. Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious Body.

Reading 6
The body without the soul hath no desires; its sensibility cometh from the same source as its movements. And it is the duty of a man with a reasonable soul to deny something to his lower nature and to keep back the outer man from things unseemly. Then will his soul, free from fleshly cravings, sit often at leisure in the palace of the mind, dwelling on the wisdom of God. There, when the roar and rattle of earthly cares are stilled, will she feed on holy thoughts and entertain herself with the expectation of the everlasting joy.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O my Lord, send I pray thee, Him Whom Thou wilt send; see the affliction of thy people. As Thou hast promised, come;
* And deliver us.
V. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, Thou That leadest Joseph like a flock, Thou That sittest upon the Cherubim!
R. As Thou hast promised, come.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And deliver us.

Ant. The Angel Gabriel
Psalm 9(22-32) [7]
9:22 Why, O Lord, hast thou retired afar off? * why dost thou slight us in our wants, in the time of trouble?
9:23 Whilst the wicked man is proud, the poor is set on fire: * they are caught in the counsels which they devise.
9:24 For the sinner is praised in the desires of his soul: * and the unjust man is blessed.
9:25 The sinner hath provoked the Lord, * according to the multitude of his wrath he will not seek him.
9:26 God is not before his eyes: * his ways are filthy at all times.
9:26 Thy judgments are removed from his sight: * he shall rule over all his enemies.
9:27 For he hath said in his heart: * I shall not be moved from generation to generation, and shall be without evil.
9:28 His mouth is full of cursing, and of bitterness, and of deceit: * under his tongue are labour and sorrow.
9:29 He sitteth in ambush with the rich, in private places, * that he may kill the innocent.
9:30 His eyes are upon the poor man: * he lieth in wait, in secret, like a lion in his den.
9:30 He lieth in ambush, that he may catch the poor man: * so catch the poor, whilst he draweth him to him.
9:31 In his net he will bring him down, * he will crouch and fall, when he shall have power over the poor.
9:32 For he hath said in his heart: God hath forgotten, * he hath turned away his face, not to see to the end.
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.

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.

Ant. Mary said:
Psalm 9(33-39) [8]
9:33 Arise, O Lord God, let thy hand be exalted: * forget not the poor.
9:34 Wherefore hath the wicked provoked God? * for he hath said in his heart: He will not require it.
9:35 Thou seest it, for thou considerest labour and sorrow: * that thou mayst deliver them into thy hands.
9:35 To thee is the poor man left: * thou wilt be a helper to the orphan.
9:36 Break thou the arm of the sinner and of the malignant: * his sin shall be sought, and shall not be found.
9:37 The Lord shall reign to eternity, yea, for ever and ever: * ye Gentiles shall perish from his land.
9:38 The Lord hath heard the desire of the poor: * thy ear hath heard the preparation of their heart.
9:39 To judge for the fatherless and for the humble, * that man may no more presume to magnify himself upon earth.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

10:2 In the Lord I put my trust: how then do you say to my soul: * Get thee away from hence to the mountain, like a sparrow?
10:3 For, lo, the wicked have bent their bow: they have prepared their arrows in the quiver, * to shoot in the dark the upright of heart.
10:4 For they have destroyed the things which thou hast made: * but what has the just man done?
10:5 The Lord is in his holy temple, * the Lord’s throne is in heaven.
10:5 His eyes look on the poor man: * his eyelids examine the sons of men.
10:6 The Lord trieth the just and the wicked: * but he that loveth iniquity, hateth his own soul.
10:7 He shall rain snares upon sinners: * fire and brimstone, and storms of winds, shall be the portion of their cup.

Luke 21:25-33
In that time, Jesus said to his disciples: And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations. And so on.

Homily by Pope St. Gregory the Great,
1st on the Gospels
Our Lord and Saviour wisheth to find us ready at His second coming. Therefore He telleth us what will be the evils of the world as it groweth old, that He may wean our hearts from worldly affections. Here we read what great convulsions will go before the end, that, if we will not fear God in our prosperity, we may at least be scourged into fearing His judgment when it is at hand.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

Immediately before the passage which hath just been read from the Gospel, are found the following words of our Lord, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and pestilences and famines. Then, after a few more verses, cometh today's Gospel. There shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring. Now some of these things are come to pass already, and we fear the others are not far off.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the ends of the earth;

Reading 9
In these our days we see nation rise against nation, and their distress over all the earth, more than we read in books hath ever come to pass of old time. Ye know also how often we hear of earthquakes overwhelming countless cities in other parts of the world. As for pestilences, we suffer from them ourselves, with hardly any intermission. As yet we do not see signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; but the changes of seasons and climates warn us that we may look for these also before long.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.
