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.
V. Deus in adjutórium meum inténde.
R. Dómine, ad adjuvándum me festína.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Allelúja.
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.
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.
Alleluia.

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

Hymnus {ex Psalterio secundum tempora}
Verbum supérnum, pródiens
A Patre olim éxiens,
Qui natus orbi súbvenis,
Cursu declívi témporis.

Illúmina nunc péctora,
Tuóque amore cóncrema;
Audíto ut præcónio
Sint pulsa tandem lúbrica.

Judéxque cum post áderis
Rimári facta péctoris,
Reddens vicem pro ábditis,
Justísque regnum pro bonis.

Non demum arctémur malis
Pro qualitáte críminis;
Sed cum beátis cómpotes
Simus perénnes cælibes.

Laus, honor, virtus, glória,
Deo Patri, et Fílio,
Sancto simul Paráclito,
In sæculórum sǽcula.
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.

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. Behold, there cometh the King
Psalm 1 [1]
1:1 Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, * nor sat in the chair of pestilence.
1:2 But his will is in the law of the Lord, * and on his law he shall meditate day and night.
1:3 And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the running waters, * which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season.
1:3 And his leaf shall not fall off: * and all whatsoever he shall do shall prosper.
1:4 Not so the wicked, not so: * but like the dust, which the wind driveth from the face of the earth.
1:5 Therefore the wicked shall not rise again in judgment: * nor sinners in the council of the just.
1:6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the just: * and the way of the wicked shall perish.
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.

Psalmus 2 [2]
2:1 Quare fremuérunt gentes: * et pópuli meditáti sunt inánia?
2:2 Astitérunt reges terræ, et príncipes convenérunt in unum * advérsus Dóminum, et advérsus Christum ejus.
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.

2:11 Servíte Dómino in timóre: * et exsultáte ei cum tremóre.
2:12 Apprehéndite disciplínam, nequándo irascátur Dóminus, * et pereátis de via justa.

R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Psalm 2 [2]
2:1 Why have the Gentiles raged, * and the people devised vain things?
2:2 The kings of the earth stood up, and the princes met together, * against the Lord and against his Christ.
2:3 Let us break their bonds asunder: * and let us cast away their yoke from us.
2:4 He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh at them: * and the Lord shall deride them.
2:5 Then shall he speak to them in his anger, * and trouble them in his rage.
2:6 But I am appointed king by him over Sion his holy mountain, * preaching his commandment.
2:7 The Lord hath said to me: * Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee.
2:8 Ask of me, and I will give thee the Gentiles for thy inheritance, * and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession.
2:9 Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, * and shalt break them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
2:10 And now, O ye kings, understand: * receive instruction, you that judge the earth.
2:11 Serve ye the Lord with fear: * and rejoice unto him with trembling.
2:12 Embrace discipline, lest at any time the Lord be angry, * and you perish from the just way.
2:13 When his wrath shall be kindled in a short time, * blessed are all they that trust in him.
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.

6:7 Laborávi in gémitu meo, lavábo per síngulas noctes lectum meum: * lácrimis meis stratum meum rigábo.
6:8 Turbátus est a furóre óculus meus: * inveterávi inter omnes inimícos meos.
6:9 Discédite a me, omnes, qui operámini iniquitátem: * quóniam exaudívit Dóminus vocem fletus mei.

7:2 Dómine, Deus meus, in te sperávi: * salvum me fac ex ómnibus persequéntibus me, et líbera me.
7:3 Nequándo rápiat ut leo ánimam meam, * dum non est qui rédimat, neque qui salvum fáciat.
7:4 Dómine, Deus meus, si feci istud, * si est iníquitas in mánibus meis:
7:5 Si réddidi retribuéntibus mihi mala, * décidam mérito ab inimícis meis inánis.
7:6 Persequátur inimícus ánimam meam, et comprehéndat, et concúlcet in terra vitam meam, * et glóriam meam in púlverem dedúcat.
7:7 Exsúrge, Dómine, in ira tua: * et exaltáre in fínibus inimicórum meórum.
7:7 Et exsúrge, Dómine, Deus meus, in præcépto quod mandásti: * et synagóga populórum circúmdabit te.
7:8 Et propter hanc in altum regrédere: * Dóminus júdicat pópulos.
7:9 Júdica me, Dómine, secúndum justítiam meam, * et secúndum innocéntiam meam super me.
7:10 Consumétur nequítia peccatórum, et díriges justum, * scrutans corda et renes, Deus.
7:11 Justum adjutórium meum a Dómino, * qui salvos facit rectos corde.
7:12 Deus judex justus, fortis, et pátiens: * numquid iráscitur per síngulos dies?
7:13 Nisi convérsi fuéritis, gládium suum vibrábit: * arcum suum teténdit, et parávit illum.
7:14 Et in eo parávit vasa mortis: * sagíttas suas ardéntibus effécit.
7:15 Ecce, partúriit injustítiam: * concépit dolórem, et péperit iniquitátem.
7:16 Lacum apéruit, et effódit eum: * et íncidit in fóveam quam fecit.
7:17 Convertétur dolor ejus in caput ejus: * et in vérticem ipsíus iníquitas ejus descéndet.

Psalm 7 [5]
7:2 O Lord my God, in thee have I put my trust: * save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me.
7:3 Lest at any time he seize upon my soul like a lion, * while there is no one to redeem me, nor to save.
7:4 O Lord my God, if I have done this thing, * if there be iniquity in my hands:
7:5 If I have rendered to them that repaid me evils, * let me deservedly fall empty before my enemies.
7:6 Let the enemy pursue my soul, and take it, and tread down my life on the earth, * and bring down my glory to the dust.
7:7 Rise up, O Lord, in thy anger: * and be thou exalted in the borders of my enemies.
7:7 And arise, O Lord my God, in the precept which thou hast commanded: * and a congregation of people shall surround thee.
7:8 And for their sakes return thou on high. * The Lord judgeth the people.
7:9 Judge me, O Lord, according to my justice, * and according to my innocence in me.
7:10 The wickedness of sinners shall be brought to nought: and thou shalt direct the just: * the searcher of hearts and reins is God.
7:11 Just is my help from the Lord: * who saveth the upright of heart.
7:12 God is a just judge, strong and patient: * is he angry every day?
7:13 Except you will be converted, he will brandish his sword: * he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
7:14 And in it he hath prepared the instruments of death, * he hath made ready his arrows for them that burn.
7:15 Behold he hath been in labour with injustice; * he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth iniquity.
7:16 He hath opened a pit and dug it: * and he is fallen into the hole he made.
7:17 His sorrow shall be turned on his own head: * and his iniquity shall come down upon his crown.
7:18 I will give glory to the Lord according to his justice: * and will sing to the name of the Lord the most High.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

8:2 For thy magnificence is elevated * above the heavens.
8:3 Out of the mouth of infants and of sucklings thou hast perfected praise, because of thy enemies, * that thou mayst destroy the enemy and the avenger.
8:4 For I will behold thy heavens, the works of thy fingers: * the moon and the stars which thou hast founded.
8:5 What is man that thou art mindful of him? * or the son of man that thou visitest him?
8:6 Thou hast made him a little less than the angels, thou hast crowned him with glory and honour: * and hast set him over the works of thy hands.
8:8 Thou hast subjected all things under his feet, * all sheep and oxen: moreover the beasts also of the fields.
8:9 The birds of the air, and the fishes of the sea, * that pass through the paths of the sea.
8:10 O Lord our Lord, * how admirable is thy name in all the earth!
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Psalmus 9 [7]
9:2 Confitébor tibi, Dómine, in toto corde meo: * narrábo ómnia mirabília tua.
9:3 Lætábor et exsultábo in te: * psallam nómini tuo, Altíssime.
9:4 In converténdo inimícum meum retrórsum: * infirmabúntur, et períbunt a fácie tua.
9:5 Quóniam fecísti judícium meum et causam meam: * sedísti super thronum, qui júdicas justítiam.
9:6 Increpásti gentes, et périit ímpius: * nomen eórum delésti in ætérnum, et in sǽculum sǽculi.
9:7 Inimíci defecérunt frámeæ in finem: * et civitátes eórum destruxísti.
9:8 Périit memória eórum cum sónitu: * et Dóminus in ætérnum pérmanet.
9:9 Parávit in judício thronum suum: * et ipse judicábit orbem terræ in æquitáte, judicábit pópulos in justítia.
9:10 Et factus est Dóminus refúgium páuperi: * adjútor in opportunitátibus, in tribulatióne.
9:11 Et sperent in te qui novérunt nomen tuum: * quóniam non dereliquísti quæréntes te, Dómine.
9:12 Psállite Dómino, qui hábitat in Sion: * annuntiáte inter gentes stúdia ejus:
9:13 Quóniam requírens sánguinem eórum recordátus est: * non est oblítus clamórem páuperum.
9:14 Miserére mei, Dómine: * vide humilitátem meam de inimícis meis.
9:15 Qui exáltas me de portis mortis, * ut annúntiem omnes laudatiónes tuas in portis fíliæ Sion.
9:16 Exsultábo in salutári tuo: * infíxæ sunt gentes in intéritu, quem fecérunt.
9:16 In láqueo isto, quem abscondérunt, * comprehénsus est pes eórum.
9:17 Cognoscétur Dóminus judícia fáciens: * in opéribus mánuum suárum comprehénsus est peccátor.
9:18 Convertántur peccatóres in inférnum, * omnes gentes quæ obliviscúntur Deum.
9:19 Quóniam non in finem oblívio erit páuperis: * patiéntia páuperum non períbit in finem.
9:20 Exsúrge, Dómine, non confortétur homo: * judicéntur gentes in conspéctu tuo.
9:21 Constítue, Dómine, legislatórem super eos: * ut sciant gentes quóniam hómines sunt.
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.

Psalm 9 [7]
9:2 I will give praise to thee, O Lord, with my whole heart: * I will relate all thy wonders.
9:3 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: * I will sing to thy name, O thou most high.
9:4 When my enemy shall be turned back: * they shall be weakened and perish before thy face.
9:5 For thou hast maintained my judgment and my cause: * thou hast sat on the throne, who judgest justice.
9:6 Thou hast rebuked the Gentiles, and the wicked one hath perished: * thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.
9:7 The swords of the enemy have failed unto the end: * and their cities thou hast destroyed.
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.
9:11 And let them trust in thee who know thy name: * for thou hast not forsaken them that seek thee, O Lord.
9:12 Sing ye to the Lord, who dwelleth in Sion: * declare his ways among the Gentiles.
9:13 For requiring their blood he hath remembered them: * he hath not forgotten the cry of the poor.
9:14 Have mercy on me, O Lord: * see my humiliation which I suffer from my enemies.
9:15 Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death, * that I may declare all thy praises in the gates of the daughter of Sion.
9:16 I will rejoice in thy salvation: * the Gentiles have stuck fast in the destruction which they have prepared.
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.
9:20 Arise, O Lord, let not man be strengthened: * let the Gentiles be judged in thy sight.
9:21 Appoint, O Lord, a lawgiver over them: * that the Gentiles may know themselves to be but men.
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.
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.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

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.

15:1 Consérva me, Dómine, quóniam sperávi in te. * Dixi Dómino: Deus meus es tu, quóniam bonórum meórum non eges.
15:3 Sanctis, qui sunt in terra ejus, * mirificávit omnes voluntátes meas in eis.
15:4 Multiplicátæ sunt infirmitátes eórum: * póstea acceleravérunt.
15:4 Non congregábo conventícula eórum de sanguínibus, * nec memor ero nóminum eórum per lábia mea.
15:5 Dóminus pars hereditátis meæ, et cálicis mei: * tu es, qui restítues hereditátem meam mihi.
15:6 Funes cecidérunt mihi in præcláris: * étenim heréditas mea præclára est mihi.
15:7 Benedícam Dóminum, qui tríbuit mihi intelléctum: * ínsuper et usque ad noctem increpuérunt me renes mei.
15:8 Providébam Dóminum in conspéctu meo semper: * quóniam a dextris est mihi, ne commóvear.
15:9 Propter hoc lætátum est cor meum, et exsultávit lingua mea: * ínsuper et caro mea requiéscet in spe.
15:10 Quóniam non derelínques ánimam meam in inférno: * nec dabis sanctum tuum vidére corruptiónem.
15:10 Notas mihi fecísti vias vitæ, adimplébis me lætítia cum vultu tuo: * delectatiónes in déxtera tua usque in finem.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.

Psalm 15 [13]
15:1 Preserve me, O Lord, for I have put my trust in thee. * I have said to the Lord, thou art my God, for thou hast no need of my goods.
15:3 To the saints, who are in his land, * he hath made wonderful all my desires in them.
15:4 Their infirmities were multiplied: * afterwards they made haste.
15:4 I will not gather together their meetings for blood offerings: * nor will I be mindful of their names by my lips.
15:5 The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup: * it is thou that wilt restore my inheritance to me.
15:6 The lines are fallen unto me in goodly places: * for my inheritance is goodly to me.
15:7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me understanding: * moreover my reins also have corrected me even till night.
15:8 I set the Lord always in my sight: * for he is at my right hand, that I be not moved.
15:9 Therefore my heart hath been glad, and my tongue hath rejoiced: * moreover my flesh also shall rest in hope.
15:10 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; * nor wilt thou give thy holy one to see corruption.
15:10 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life, thou shalt fill me with joy with thy countenance: * at thy right hand are delights even 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.

Ant. Rejoice greatly O daughter of Jerusalem behold, thy King cometh into thee, O Zion; fear not, for thy salvation cometh quickly.

Psalmus 16 [14]
16:1 Exáudi, Dómine, justítiam meam: * inténde deprecatiónem meam.
16:1 Áuribus pércipe oratiónem meam, * non in lábiis dolósis.
16:2 De vultu tuo judícium meum pródeat: * óculi tui vídeant æquitátes.
16:3 Probásti cor meum, et visitásti nocte: * igne me examinásti, et non est invénta in me iníquitas.
16:4 Ut non loquátur os meum ópera hóminum: * propter verba labiórum tuórum ego custodívi vias duras.
16:5 Pérfice gressus meos in sémitis tuis: * ut non moveántur vestígia mea.
16:6 Ego clamávi, quóniam exaudísti me, Deus: * inclína aurem tuam mihi, et exáudi verba mea.
16:7 Mirífica misericórdias tuas, * qui salvos facis sperántes in te.
16:8 A resisténtibus déxteræ tuæ custódi me, * ut pupíllam óculi.
16:9 Sub umbra alárum tuárum prótege me: * a fácie impiórum qui me afflixérunt.
16:10 Inimíci mei ánimam meam circumdedérunt, ádipem suum conclusérunt: * os eórum locútum est supérbiam.
16:11 Proiciéntes me nunc circumdedérunt me: * óculos suos statuérunt declináre in terram.
16:12 Suscepérunt me sicut leo parátus ad prædam: * et sicut cátulus leónis hábitans in ábditis.
16:13 Exsúrge, Dómine, prǽveni eum, et supplánta eum: * éripe ánimam meam ab ímpio, frámeam tuam ab inimícis manus tuæ.
16:14 Dómine, a paucis de terra dívide eos in vita eórum: * de abscónditis tuis adimplétus est venter eórum.
16:14 Saturáti sunt fíliis: * et dimisérunt relíquias suas párvulis suis.
16:15 Ego autem in justítia apparébo conspéctui tuo: * satiábor cum apparúerit glória tua.

Ant. Christ our King cometh,
Psalm 16 [14]
16:1 Hear, O Lord, my justice: * attend to my supplication.
16:1 Give ear unto my prayer, * which proceedeth not from deceitful lips.
16:2 Let my judgment come forth from thy countenance: * let thy eyes behold the things that are equitable.
16:3 Thou hast proved my heart, and visited it by night, * thou hast tried me by fire: and iniquity hath not been found in me.
16:4 That my mouth may not speak the works of men: * for the sake of the words of thy lips, I have kept hard ways.
16:5 Perfect thou my goings in thy paths: * that my footsteps be not moved.
16:6 I have cried to thee, for thou, O God, hast heard me: * O incline thy ear unto me, and hear my words.
16:7 Shew forth thy wonderful mercies; * thou who savest them that trust in thee.
16:8 From them that resist thy right hand keep me, * as the apple of thy eye.
16:9 Protect me under the shadow of thy wings. * from the face of the wicked who have afflicted me.
16:10 My enemies have surrounded my soul: They have shut up their fat: * their mouth hath spoken proudly.
16:11 They have cast me forth, and now they have surrounded me: * they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth.
16:12 They have taken me, as a lion prepared for the prey; * and as a young lion dwelling in secret places.
16:13 Arise, O Lord, disappoint him and supplant him; * deliver my soul from the wicked one; thy sword from the enemies of thy hand.
16:14 O Lord, divide them from the few of the earth in their life: * their belly is filled from thy hidden stores.
16:14 They are full of children: * and they have left to their little ones the rest of their substance.
16:15 But as for me, I will appear before thy sight in justice: * I shall be satisfied when thy glory shall appear.
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.

Psalmus 17 [15]
17:2 Díligam te, Dómine, fortitúdo mea: * Dóminus firmaméntum meum, et refúgium meum, et liberátor meus.
17:3 Deus meus adjútor meus, * et sperábo in eum.
17:3 Protéctor meus, et cornu salútis meæ, * et suscéptor meus.
17:4 Laudans invocábo Dóminum: * et ab inimícis meis salvus ero.
17:5 Circumdedérunt me dolóres mortis: * et torréntes iniquitátis conturbavérunt me.
17:6 Dolóres inférni circumdedérunt me: * præoccupavérunt me láquei mortis.
17:7 In tribulatióne mea invocávi Dóminum, * et ad Deum meum clamávi.
17:7 Et exaudívit de templo sancto suo vocem meam: * et clamor meus in conspéctu ejus, introívit in aures ejus.
17:8 Commóta est, et contrémuit terra: * fundaménta móntium conturbáta sunt, et commóta sunt, quóniam irátus est eis.
17:9 Ascéndit fumus in ira ejus: et ignis a fácie ejus exársit: * carbónes succénsi sunt ab eo.
17:10 Inclinávit cælos, et descéndit: * et calígo sub pédibus ejus.
17:11 Et ascéndit super Chérubim, et volávit: * volávit super pennas ventórum.
17:12 Et pósuit ténebras latíbulum suum, in circúitu ejus tabernáculum ejus: * tenebrósa aqua in núbibus áëris.
17:13 Præ fulgóre in conspéctu ejus nubes transiérunt, * grando et carbónes ignis.
17:14 Et intónuit de cælo Dóminus, et Altíssimus dedit vocem suam: * grando et carbónes ignis.
17:15 Et misit sagíttas suas, et dissipávit eos: * fúlgura multiplicávit, et conturbávit eos.
17:16 Et apparuérunt fontes aquárum, * et reveláta sunt fundaménta orbis terrárum:
17:16 Ab increpatióne tua, Dómine, * ab inspiratióne spíritus iræ tuæ.
17:17 Misit de summo, et accépit me: * et assúmpsit me de aquis multis.
17:18 Erípuit me de inimícis meis fortíssimis, et ab his qui odérunt me: * quóniam confortáti sunt super me.
17:19 Prævenérunt me in die afflictiónis meæ: * et factus est Dóminus protéctor meus.
17:20 Et edúxit me in latitúdinem: * salvum me fecit, quóniam vóluit me.
17:21 Et retríbuet mihi Dóminus secúndum justítiam meam: * et secúndum puritátem mánuum meárum retríbuet mihi:
17:22 Quia custodívi vias Dómini, * nec ímpie gessi a Deo meo.
17:23 Quóniam ómnia judícia ejus in conspéctu meo: * et justítias ejus non répuli a me.
17:24 Et ero immaculátus cum eo: * et observábo me ab iniquitáte mea.
17:25 Et retríbuet mihi Dóminus secúndum justítiam meam: * et secúndum puritátem mánuum meárum in conspéctu oculórum ejus.
17:26 Cum sancto sanctus eris, * et cum viro innocénte ínnocens eris:
17:27 Et cum elécto eléctus eris: * et cum pervérso pervertéris.
17:28 Quóniam tu pópulum húmilem salvum fácies: * et óculos superbórum humiliábis.
17:29 Quóniam tu illúminas lucérnam meam, Dómine: * Deus meus, illúmina ténebras meas.
17:30 Quóniam in te erípiar a tentatióne, * et in Deo meo transgrédiar murum.
17:31 Deus meus, impollúta via ejus: elóquia Dómini igne examináta: * protéctor est ómnium sperántium in se.
17:32 Quóniam quis Deus præter Dóminum? * aut quis Deus præter Deum nostrum?
17:33 Deus, qui præcínxit me virtúte: * et pósuit immaculátam viam meam.
17:34 Qui perfécit pedes meos tamquam cervórum, * et super excélsa státuens me.
17:35 Qui docet manus meas ad prǽlium: * et posuísti, ut arcum ǽreum, brácchia mea.
17:36 Et dedísti mihi protectiónem salútis tuæ: * et déxtera tua suscépit me:
17:36 Et disciplína tua corréxit me in finem: * et disciplína tua ipsa me docébit.
17:37 Dilatásti gressus meos subtus me: * et non sunt infirmáta vestígia mea:
17:38 Pérsequar inimícos meos et comprehéndam illos: * et non convértar, donec defíciant.
17:39 Confríngam illos, nec póterunt stare: * cadent subtus pedes meos.
17:40 Et præcinxísti me virtúte ad bellum: * et supplantásti insurgéntes in me subtus me.
17:41 Et inimícos meos dedísti mihi dorsum, * et odiéntes me disperdidísti.
17:42 Clamavérunt, nec erat qui salvos fáceret ad Dóminum: * nec exaudívit eos.
17:43 Et commínuam illos, ut púlverem ante fáciem venti: * ut lutum plateárum delébo eos.
17:44 Erípies me de contradictiónibus pópuli: * constítues me in caput géntium.
17:45 Pópulus quem non cognóvi servívit mihi: * in audítu auris obedívit mihi.
17:46 Fílii aliéni mentíti sunt mihi, * fílii aliéni inveteráti sunt, et claudicavérunt a sémitis suis.
17:47 Vivit Dóminus, et benedíctus Deus meus: * et exaltétur Deus salútis meæ.
17:48 Deus, qui das vindíctas mihi, et subdis pópulos sub me: * liberátor meus de inimícis meis iracúndis.
17:49 Et ab insurgéntibus in me exaltábis me: * a viro iníquo erípies me.
17:50 Proptérea confitébor tibi in natiónibus, Dómine: * et nómini tuo psalmum dicam.

Psalm 17 [15]
17:2 I will love thee, O Lord, my strength: * The Lord is my firmament, my refuge, and my deliverer.
17:3 My God is my helper, * and in him will I put my trust.
17:3 My protector, and the horn of my salvation, * and my support.
17:4 Praising, I will call upon the Lord: * and I shall be saved from my enemies.
17:5 The sorrows of death surrounded me: * and the torrents of iniquity troubled me.
17:6 The sorrows of hell encompassed me: * and the snares of death prevented me.
17:7 In my affliction I called upon the Lord, * and I cried to my God:
17:7 And he heard my voice from his holy temple: * and my cry before him came into his ears.
17:8 The earth shook and trembled: * the foundations of the mountains were troubled and were moved, because he was angry with them.
17:9 There went up a smoke in his wrath: and a fire flamed from his face: * coals were kindled by it.
17:10 He bowed the heavens, and came down, * and darkness was under his feet.
17:11 And he ascended upon the cherubim, and he flew; * he flew upon the wings of the winds.
17:12 And he made darkness his covert, his pavilion round about him: * dark waters in the clouds of the air.
17:13 At the brightness that was before him the clouds passed, * hail and coals of fire.
17:14 And the Lord thundered from heaven, * and the Highest gave his voice: * hail and coals of fire.
17:15 And he sent forth his arrows, and he scattered them: * he multiplied lightnings, and troubled them.
17:16 Then the fountains of waters appeared, * and the foundations of the world were discovered:
17:16 At thy rebuke, O Lord, * at the blast of the spirit of thy wrath.
17:17 He sent from on high, and took me: * and received me out of many waters.
17:18 He delivered me from my strongest enemies, and from them that hated me: * for they were too strong for me.
17:19 They prevented me in the day of my affliction: * and the Lord became my protector.
17:20 And he brought me forth into a large place: * he saved me, because he was well pleased with me.
17:21 And the Lord will reward me according to my justice; * and will repay me according to the cleanness of my hands:
17:22 Because I have kept the ways of the Lord; * and have not done wickedly against my God.
17:23 For all his judgments are in my sight: * and his justices I have not put away from me.
17:24 And I shall be spotless with him: * and shall keep myself from my iniquity.
17:25 And the Lord will reward me according to my justice: * and according to the cleanness of my hands before his eyes.
17:26 With the holy thou wilt be holy; * and with the innocent man thou wilt be innocent:
17:27 And with the elect thou wilt be elect: * and with the perverse thou wilt be perverted.
17:28 For thou wilt save the humble people; * but wilt bring down the eyes of the proud.
17:29 For thou lightest my lamp, O Lord: * O my God, enlighten my darkness.
17:30 For by thee I shall be delivered from temptation; * and through my God I shall go over a wall.
17:31 As for my God, his way is undefiled: the words of the Lord are fire-tried: * he is the protector of all that trust in him.
17:32 For who is God but the Lord? * or who is God but our God?
17:33 God, who hath girt me with strength; * and made my way blameless.
17:34 Who hath made my feet like the feet of harts: * and who setteth me upon high places.
17:35 Who teacheth my hands to war: * and thou hast made my arms like a brazen bow.
17:36 Thou hast given me the protection of thy salvation: * and thy right hand hath held me up:
17:36 And thy discipline hath corrected me unto the end: * and thy discipline, the same shall teach me.
17:37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; * and my feet are not weakened.
17:38 I will pursue after my enemies, and overtake them: * and I will not turn again till they are consumed.
17:39 I will break them, and they shall not be able to stand: * they shall fall under my feet.
17:40 And thou hast girded me with strength unto battle; * and hast subdued under me them that rose up against me.
17:41 And thou hast made my enemies turn their back upon me, * and hast destroyed them that hated me.
17:42 They cried, but there was none to save them, to the Lord: * but he heard them not.
17:43 And I shall beat them as small as the dust before the wind; * I shall bring them to nought, like the dirt in the streets.
17:44 Thou wilt deliver me from the contradictions of the people; * thou wilt make me head of the Gentiles.
17:45 A people which I knew not, hath served me: * at the hearing of the ear they have obeyed me.
17:46 The children that are strangers have lied to me, * strange children have faded away, and have halted from their paths.
17:47 The Lord liveth, and blessed be my God, * and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
17:48 O God, who avengest me, and subduest the people under me, * my deliverer from my enraged enemies.
17:49 And thou wilt lift me up above them that rise up against me: * from the unjust man thou wilt deliver me.
17:50 Therefore will I give glory to thee, O Lord, among the nations, * and I will sing a psalm to thy name.
17:51 Giving great deliverance to his king, and shewing mercy to David, his anointed: * and to his seed for ever.
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.

V. Send forth, O Lord, the lamb, the ruler of the earth,
R. From Petra of the desert, to the mount of the daughter of Sion.

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.

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.

R. And deliver us.
Nocturn III.
Ant. Gábriel Ángelus
Psalmus 18 [16]
18:2 Cæli enárrant glóriam Dei: * et ópera mánuum ejus annúntiat firmaméntum.
18:3 Dies diéi erúctat verbum, * et nox nocti índicat sciéntiam.
18:4 Non sunt loquélæ, neque sermónes, * quorum non audiántur voces eórum.
18:5 In omnem terram exívit sonus eórum: * et in fines orbis terræ verba eórum.
18:6 In sole pósuit tabernáculum suum: * et ipse tamquam sponsus procédens de thálamo suo:
18:6 Exsultávit ut gigas ad curréndam viam, * a summo cælo egréssio ejus:
18:7 Et occúrsus ejus usque ad summum ejus: * nec est qui se abscóndat a calóre ejus.
18:8 Lex Dómini immaculáta, convértens ánimas: * testimónium Dómini fidéle, sapiéntiam præstans párvulis.
18:9 Justítiæ Dómini rectæ, lætificántes corda: * præcéptum Dómini lúcidum, illúminans óculos.
18:10 Timor Dómini sanctus, pérmanens in sǽculum sǽculi: * judícia Dómini vera, justificáta in semetípsa.
18:11 Desiderabília super aurum et lápidem pretiósum multum: * et dulcióra super mel et favum.
18:12 Étenim servus tuus custódit ea, * in custodiéndis illis retribútio multa.
18:13 Delícta quis intéllegit? ab occúltis meis munda me: * et ab aliénis parce servo tuo.
18:14 Si mei non fúerint domináti, tunc immaculátus ero: * et emundábor a delícto máximo.
18:15 Et erunt ut compláceant elóquia oris mei: * et meditátio cordis mei in conspéctu tuo semper.
18:15 Dómine, adjútor meus, * et redémptor meus.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Gábriel Ángelus locútus est Maríæ, dicens: Ave, grátia plena; Dóminus tecum; benedícta tu inter mulíeres.
Nocturn III.
Ant. The Angel Gabriel spoke unto Mary, saying:
Psalm 18 [16]
18:2 The heavens shew forth the glory of God, * and the firmament declareth the work of his hands.
18:3 Day to day uttereth speech, * and night to night sheweth knowledge.
18:4 There are no speeches nor languages, * where their voices are not heard.
18:5 Their sound hath gone forth into all the earth: * and their words unto the ends of the world.
18:6 He hath set his tabernacle in the sun: * and he, as a bridegroom coming out of his bride chamber,
18:6 Hath rejoiced as a giant to run the way: * his going out is from the end of heaven,
18:7 And his circuit even to the end thereof: * and there is no one that can hide himself from his heat.
18:8 The law of the Lord is unspotted, converting souls: * the testimony of the Lord is faithful, giving wisdom to little ones.
18:9 The justices of the Lord are right, rejoicing hearts: * the commandment of the Lord is lightsome, enlightening the eyes.
18:10 The fear of the Lord is holy, enduring for ever and ever: * the judgments of the Lord are true, justified in themselves.
18:11 More to be desired than gold and many precious stones: * and sweeter than honey and the honeycomb.
18:12 For thy servant keepeth them, * and in keeping them there is a great reward.
18:13 Who can understand sins? from my secret ones cleanse me, O Lord: * and from those of others spare thy servant.
18:14 If they shall have no dominion over me, then shall I be without spot: * and I shall be cleansed from the greatest sin.
18:15 And the words of my mouth shall be such as may please: * and the meditation of my heart always in thy sight.
18:15 O Lord, my helper, * and my redeemer.
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.

Ant. The Angel Gabriel spoke unto Mary, saying: Hail, thou that art full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
Ant. María dixit:
Psalmus 19 [17]
19:2 Exáudiat te Dóminus in die tribulatiónis: * prótegat te nomen Dei Jacob.
19:3 Mittat tibi auxílium de sancto: * et de Sion tueátur te.
19:4 Memor sit omnis sacrifícii tui: * et holocáustum tuum pingue fiat.
19:5 Tríbuat tibi secúndum cor tuum: * et omne consílium tuum confírmet.
19:6 Lætábimur in salutári tuo: * et in nómine Dei nostri magnificábimur.
19:7 Ímpleat Dóminus omnes petitiónes tuas: * nunc cognóvi quóniam salvum fecit Dóminus Christum suum.
19:7 Exáudiet illum de cælo sancto suo: * in potentátibus salus déxteræ ejus.
19:8 Hi in cúrribus, et hi in equis: * nos autem in nómine Dómini, Dei nostri invocábimus.
19:9 Ipsi obligáti sunt, et cecidérunt: * nos autem surréximus et erécti sumus.
19:10 Dómine, salvum fac regem: * et exáudi nos in die, qua invocavérimus te.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. María dixit: Putas qualis est ista salutátio, quia conturbáta est ánima mea, et quia paritúra sum Regem, qui claustrum virginitátis meæ non violábit.
Ant. Mary said:
Psalm 19 [17]
19:2 May the Lord hear thee in the day of tribulation: * may the name of the God of Jacob protect thee.
19:3 May he send thee help from the sanctuary: * and defend thee out of Sion.
19:4 May he be mindful of all thy sacrifices: * and may thy whole burnt offering be made fat.
19:5 May he give thee according to thy own heart; * and confirm all thy counsels.
19:6 We will rejoice in thy salvation; * and in the name of our God we shall be exalted.
19:7 The Lord fulfil all thy petitions: * now have I known that the Lord hath saved his anointed.
19:7 He will hear him from his holy heaven: * the salvation of his right hand is in powers.
19:8 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: * but we will call upon the name of the Lord, our God.
19:9 They are bound, and have fallen: * but we are risen, and are set upright.
19:10 O Lord, save the king: * and hear us in the day that we shall call upon thee.
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.

Ant. Mary said: What manner of salutation is this? My soul is troubled. Shall I bear the King? And will He not break the seal of my virginity?
Ant. In advéntu
Psalmus 20 [18]
20:2 Dómine, in virtúte tua lætábitur rex: * et super salutáre tuum exsultábit veheménter.
20:3 Desidérium cordis ejus tribuísti ei: * et voluntáte labiórum ejus non fraudásti eum.
20:4 Quóniam prævenísti eum in benedictiónibus dulcédinis: * posuísti in cápite ejus corónam de lápide pretióso.
20:5 Vitam pétiit a te: * et tribuísti ei longitúdinem diérum in sǽculum, et in sǽculum sǽculi.
20:6 Magna est glória ejus in salutári tuo: * glóriam et magnum decórem impónes super eum.
20:7 Quóniam dabis eum in benedictiónem in sǽculum sǽculi: * lætificábis eum in gáudio cum vultu tuo.
20:8 Quóniam rex sperat in Dómino: * et in misericórdia Altíssimi non commovébitur.
20:9 Inveniátur manus tua ómnibus inimícis tuis: * déxtera tua invéniat omnes, qui te odérunt.
20:10 Pones eos ut clíbanum ignis in témpore vultus tui: * Dóminus in ira sua conturbábit eos, et devorábit eos ignis.
20:11 Fructum eórum de terra perdes: * et semen eórum a fíliis hóminum.
20:12 Quóniam declinavérunt in te mala: * cogitavérunt consília, quæ non potuérunt stabilíre.
20:13 Quóniam pones eos dorsum: * in relíquiis tuis præparábis vultum eórum.
20:14 Exaltáre, Dómine, in virtúte tua: * cantábimus et psallémus virtútes tuas.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. In advéntu summi Régis mundéntur corda hóminum, ut digne ambulémus in occúrsum illíus: quia ecce véniet et non tardábit.
Ant. The King,
Psalm 20 [18]
20:2 The king rejoices in thy strength, O Lord; * and in thy salvation he shall rejoice exceedingly.
20:3 Thou hast given him his heart’s desire: * and hast not withholden from him the will of his lips.
20:4 For thou hast prevented him with blessings of sweetness: * thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones.
20:5 He asked life of thee: * and thou hast given him length of days for ever and ever.
20:6 His glory is great in thy salvation: * glory and great beauty shalt thou lay upon him.
20:7 For thou shalt give him to be a blessing for ever and ever: * thou shalt make him joyful in gladness with thy countenance.
20:8 For the king hopeth in the Lord: * and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
20:9 Let thy hand be found by all thy enemies: * let thy right hand find out all them that hate thee.
20:10 Thou shalt make them as an oven of fire, * in the time of thy anger: the Lord shall trouble them in his wrath, and fire shall devour them.
20:11 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth: * and their seed from among the children of men.
20:12 For they have intended evils against thee: * they have devised counsels which they have not been able to establish.
20:13 For thou shalt make them turn their back: * in thy remnants thou shalt prepare their face.
20:14 Be thou exalted, O Lord, in thy own strength: * we will sing and praise thy power.
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.

Ant. The King, even the Most High, cometh therefore let the hearts of men be purified to go forth to meet Him, for, behold, He will come and will not tarry.
V. Egrediétur Dóminus de loco sancto suo.
R. Véniet ut salvet pópulum suum.
V. The Lord will come out of his place.
R. He comes to save his people.
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:
V. Et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem:
R. Sed líbera nos a malo.
Absolutio. A vínculis peccatórum nostrórum absólvat nos omnípotens et miséricors Dóminus. Amen.
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.
V. And lead us not into temptation:
R. But deliver us from evil.
Absolution. May the Almighty and merciful Lord loose us from the bonds of our sins. Amen.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Lucam
Luc 21:25-33
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Erunt signa in sole, et luna, et stellis, et in terris pressúra géntium. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Gregórii Papæ
Homilia 1 in Evangelia
Dóminus ac Redémptor noster parátos nos inveníre desíderans, senescéntem mundum quæ mala sequántur denúntiat, ut nos ab ejus amóre compéscat. Appropinquántem ejus términum quantæ percussiónes prævéniant, innotéscit: ut, si Deum metúere in tranquillitáte nólumus, saltem vicínum ejus judícium vel percussiónibus attríti timeámus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Ecce virgo concípiet, et páriet fílium, dicit Dóminus:
* Et vocábitur nomen ejus Admirábilis, Deus, Fortis.
V. Super sólium David, et super regnum ejus sedébit in ætérnum.
R. Et vocábitur nomen ejus Admirábilis, Deus, Fortis.

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 Luke
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.

R. Behold, the Virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, saith the Lord;
* And His name shall be called Wonderful, the Mighty God.
V. He shall sit upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom for ever.
R. And His name shall be called Wonderful, the Mighty God.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Huic étenim lectióni sancti Evangélii, quam modo vestra fratérnitas audívit, paulo supérius Dóminus præmísit, dicens: Exsúrget gens contra gentem, et regnum advérsus regnum: et erunt terræmótus magni per loca, et pestiléntiæ, et fames. Et quibúsdam interpósitis, hoc, quod modo audístis, adjúnxit: Erunt signa in sole, et luna, et stellis, et in terris pressúra géntium præ confusióne sónitus maris, et flúctuum. Ex quibus profécto ómnibus ália jam facta cérnimus, ália in próximo ventúra formidámus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Audíte verbum Dómini, gentes, et annuntiáte illud in fínibus terræ:
* Et ínsulis, quæ procul sunt, dícite: Salvátor noster advéniet.
V. Annuntiáte, et audítum fácite: loquímini, et clamáte.
R. Et ínsulis, quæ procul sunt, dícite: Salvátor noster advéniet.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 8
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;
* And in the isles afar off, and say: Our Saviour shall come.
V. Declare it and make it known, lift up your voice and cry aloud.
R. And in the isles afar off, and say: Our Saviour shall come.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Nam gentem contra gentem exsúrgere, earúmque pressúram terris insístere, plus jam in nostris tempóribus cérnimus, quam in codícibus légimus. Quod terræmótus urbes innúmeras óbruat, ex áliis mundi pártibus scitis quam frequénter audívimus. Pestiléntias sine cessatióne pátimur. Signa vero in sole, et luna, et stellis, adhuc apérte mínime vídimus: sed quia et hæc non longe sint, ex ipsa jam áëris immutatióne collígimus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Ecce dies véniunt, dicit Dóminus, et suscitábo David germen justum: et regnábit rex, et sápiens erit, et fáciet judícium et justítiam in terra:
* Et hoc est nomen quod vocábunt eum: * Dóminus justus noster.
V. In diébus illis salvábitur Juda, et Israël habitábit confidénter.
R. Et hoc est nomen quod vocábunt eum:
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Dóminus justus noster.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

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.

R. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch; and a King shall reign in wisdom and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth:
* And this is His name whereby He shall be called: * The Lord our Righteous one.
V. In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely.
R. And this is His name whereby He shall be called.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. The Lord our Righteous one.
Reliqua omittuntur, nisi Laudes separandae sint.

R. Amen.

Stir up, O Lord, we pray thee, thy strength, and come among us, that whereas through our sins and wickedness we do justly apprehend thy wrathful judgments hanging over us, thy bountiful grace and mercy may speedily help and deliver us;
Who livest and reignest with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.
R. Amen
