Start
V. O God, come to my assistance;
R. O Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Hymnus
Iam lucis orto sídere,
Deum precémur súpplices,
Ut in diúrnis áctibus
Nos servet a nocéntibus.

Linguam refrénans témperet,
Ne litis horror ínsonet:
Visum fovéndo cóntegat,
Ne vanitátes háuriat.

Sint pura cordis íntima,
Absístat et vecórdia;
Carnis terat supérbiam
Potus cibíque párcitas.

Ut, cum dies abscésserit,
Noctémque sors redúxerit,
Mundi per abstinéntiam
Ipsi canámus glóriam.

Deo Patri sit glória,
Eiúsque soli Fílio,
Cum Spíritu Paráclito,
Et nunc et in perpétuum.
Amen.
Hymn
Now in the sun's new dawning ray,
Lowly of heart, our God we pray
That he from harm may keep us free
In all the deeds this day shall see.

May fear of him our tongues restrain,
Lest strife unguarded speech should stain:
His favouring care our guardian be,
Lest our eyes feed on vanity.

May every heart be pure from sin
And folly find no place therein:
Scant need of food, excess denied,
Wear down in us the body's pride.

That when the light of day is gone,
And night in course shall follow on.
We, free from cares the world affords,
May chant the praise that is our Lord's.

All laud to God the Father be,
All praise, Eternal Son, to thee:
All glory, as is ever meet,
To God the holy Paraclete.
Amen.
Psalmi {Votiva}
Ant. Domum tuam, Dómine, * decet sanctitúdo in longitúdinem diérum.
Psalmus 7 [1]
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 iúdicat pópulos.
7:9 Iúdica me, Dómine, secúndum iustítiam meam, * et secúndum innocéntiam meam super me.
7:10 Consumétur nequítia peccatórum, et díriges iustum, * scrutans corda et renes, Deus.
7:11 Iustum adiutórium meum a Dómino, * qui salvos facit rectos corde.
7:12 Deus iudex iustus, 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 iniustítiam: * concépit dolórem, et péperit iniquitátem.
7:16 Lacum apéruit, et effódit eum: * et íncidit in fóveam quam fecit.
7:17 Convertétur dolor eius in caput eius: * et in vérticem ipsíus iníquitas eius descéndet.
7:18 Confitébor Dómino secúndum iustítiam eius: * et psallam nómini Dómini altíssimi.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Psalms {Votive}
Ant. Holiness becometh thine house, * O Lord, for ever.
Psalm 7 [1]
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.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

8:5 Quid est homo quod memor es eius? * aut fílius hóminis, quóniam vísitas eum?
8:6 Minuísti eum paulo minus ab Ángelis, glória et honóre coronásti eum: * et constituísti eum super ópera mánuum tuárum.
8:8 Ómnia subiecísti sub pédibus eius, * oves et boves univérsas: ínsuper et pécora campi.
8:9 Vólucres cæli, et pisces maris, * qui perámbulant sémitas maris.

Psalm 8 [2]
8:2 O Lord our Lord, * how admirable is thy name in the whole earth!
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.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

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 iudícium meum et causam meam: * sedísti super thronum, qui iúdicas iustítiam.
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 iudício thronum suum: * et ipse iudicábit orbem terræ in æquitáte, iudicábit pópulos in iustítia.
9:10 Et factus est Dóminus refúgium páuperi: * adiútor 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 eius:
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 iudícia 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.

Psalm 9(2-19) [3]
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.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Martyrologium (anticip.)
On the morrow we keep in England the feast of the holy Confessor Brian, first Bishop of Dorchester, of whom mention is made upon the 3rd day of this present month of December.
December 5th 2018, the 27th day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

At Mutalasque, in Cappadocia, the holy Saba, Abbot (in Palestine in the year 531,) who shone in Palestine as a marvellous example of holiness, and toiled manfully for the Catholic faith against those that impugned the holy Council of Chalcedon, (held in the year 451.)
At Thebeste, in Africa, holy Crispina, (of Thagara,) a woman of very high rank, who refused to sacrifice to idols, in the days of the Emperors Diocletian and Maximian, and was therefore beheaded by command of the Pro-consul Anolinus, (in the year 304.) Holy Augustin doth oftentimes speak in her praise.
At Thagara, in Africa, the holy martyrs Julius, Potamia, Crispin, Felix, Gratus, and seven others.
At Nice, upon the river Var, holy Bassus, Bishop (of that see, in the third century.) In the persecution under the Emperors Decius and Valerian the President Perennius caused him for Christ's faith's sake to be racked, burnt with plates of white-hot metal, beaten with cudgels and loaded scourges, cast into the fire, and when he came out therefrom unharmed, to be pierced with two nails, and so he achieved an illustrious martyrdom.
At Pavia, the holy martyr Dalmatius, Bishop (of that see,) who suffered in the persecution under the Emperor Maximian, (in the year 304.)
At Pentinia, in the Abruzzi, the holy martyr Pelinus, Bishop of Brindisi.
In the days of the Emperor Julian the Apostate a temple of Mars fell down in answer to his prayer, wherefore the heathen priests beat him direfully, and he earned the crown of martyrdom by eighty-five wounds, (about the year 362.)
Likewise, (in the sixth century,) the holy martyr Anastasius, whose desire for martyrdom caused him to show himself of his own will to the persecutors.
At Trier, (about the year 566,) holy Nicetius, Bishop (of that see,) a man of wonderful holiness. (Two of his works are still extant.)
At Polybotus, in Asia, holy John, called the Wonder-worker, Bishop (of that see in the time of the Emperor Leo the Isaurian.)
V. And elsewhere many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.
R. Thanks be to God.

V. Precious in the sight of the Lord.
R. Is the death of his saints.
Holy Mary and all the Saints, intercede for us with the Lord, our God, so that we may merit His help and salvation, who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
R. Amen.

Regula
Ex Régula Sancti Patri Nostri Benedícti. Caput 53: De hospítibus suscipiéndis

Omnes superveniéntes hóspites tamquam Christus suscipiántur, quia ipse dictúrus est: Hospis fui et suscepístis me. Et ómnibus cóngruus honor exhibeátur, máxime domésticis fídei et peregrínis. Ut ergo nuntiátus fúerit hospis, occurrátur ei a prióre vel a frátribus cum omni offício caritátis; et prímitus orent páriter, et sic sibi sociétur in pace. Quod pacis ósculum non prius offerátur nisi oratióne præmíssa, propter inlusiónes diabólicas. In ipsa autem salutatióne omnis exhibeátur humílitas ómnibus veniéntibus sive discedéntibus hospítibus: inclináto cápite vel prostráto omni córpore in terra, Christus in eis adorétur qui et suscípitur. Suscépti autem hóspites ducántur ad oratiónem, et póstea sédeat cum eis prior aut cui iússerit ipse. Legátur coram hóspite Lex divína ut ædificétur, et post hæc omnis ei exhibeátur humánitas. Ieiúnium a prióre frangátur propter hóspitem, nisi forte præcípuus sit dies ieiúnii qui non possit violári; fratres autem consuetúdines ieiuniórum prosequántur. Aquam in mánibus abbas hospítibus det; pedes hospítibus ómnibus tam abbas quam cuncta congregátio lavet; quibus lotis, hunc versum dicant: Suscépimus, Deus, misericórdiam tuam in médio templi tui. Páuperum et peregrinórum máxime susceptióni cura sollícite exhibeátur, quia in ipsis magis Christus suscípitur; nam dívitum terror ipse sibi éxigit honórem.

Extra Chorum etiam laudabiliter dicitur lectio ex S. Regulæ; secus dicitur Lectio brevis.

Lectio brevis {Votiva}
Apo 21:4-5
Et abstérget Deus omnem lácrimam ab óculis eórum: et mors ultra non erit, neque luctus, neque clamor, neque dolor erit ultra, quia prima abiérunt. Et dixit qui sedébat in throno: Ecce nova fácio ómnia.

In fine:
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.
Regula
The Rule of our Holy Father Benedict. Chapter 53: of How Guests Are to Be Received

Let all guests that happen to come be received as Christ, because He is going to say: “A Guest was I and ye received Me.” And let suitable honour be shewn to them all, especially to those who are of the household of the faith and to strangers. When therefore a guest shall have been announced, let him be met by the superior or by the brethren, with all due courtesy; and let them at once betake themselves to prayer together and so let them associate together in peace, because the kiss of peace may not be offered first, but only when preceded by prayer, so as to avoid the snares of Satan: and in the salutation itself let all humility be manifest. Whenever guests arrive or depart, let Christ be adored in them—for Him indeed we receive in them—by bowing of the head or by full prostration. And when the guests have been received let them be taken to pray and then let the superior, or whomsoever he shall have appointed, sit with them. Let the divine law be read in the presence of a guest, that he may be edified; and after this let all courtesy be shewn him. For hospitality’s sake the superior may break his fast, unless by chance it be a fast-day of obligation, the which cannot be violated: but let the brethren continue to observe their custom of fasting. Let the abbot serve water for the guests’ hands; and let both the abbot and also the whole community wash all the guests’ feet: and the washing finished let them say this versicle: “We have received Thy mercy, O God, in the midst of Thy temple.” And above all let care be scrupulously shewn in receiving the poor and strangers; for in them specially is Christ received. For the fear that the rich inspire itself secures deference for them.
