Invitatory {Antiphon from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
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.
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.

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.

21:3 Deus meus, clamábo per diem, et non exáudies: * et nocte, et non ad insipiéntiam mihi.
21:4 Tu autem in sancto hábitas, * laus Israël.
21:5 In te speravérunt patres nostri: * speravérunt, et liberásti eos.
21:6 Ad te clamavérunt, et salvi facti sunt: * in te speravérunt, et non sunt confúsi.
21:7 Ego autem sum vermis, et non homo: * oppróbrium hóminum, et abjéctio plebis.
21:8 Omnes vidéntes me, derisérunt me: * locúti sunt lábiis, et movérunt caput.
21:9 Sperávit in Dómino, erípiat eum: * salvum fáciat eum, quóniam vult eum.
21:10 Quóniam tu es, qui extraxísti me de ventre: * spes mea ab ubéribus matris meæ. In te projéctus sum ex útero:
21:11 De ventre matris meæ Deus meus es tu, * ne discésseris a me:
21:12 Quóniam tribulátio próxima est: * quóniam non est qui ádjuvet.
21:13 Circumdedérunt me vítuli multi: * tauri pingues obsedérunt me.

Psalm 21 [2]
21:2 O God my God, look upon me: why hast thou forsaken me? * Far from my salvation are the words of my sins.
21:3 O my God, I shall cry by day, and thou wilt not hear: * and by night, and it shall not be reputed as folly in me.
21:4 But thou dwellest in the holy place, * the praise of Israel.
21:5 In thee have our fathers hoped: * they have hoped, and thou hast delivered them.
21:6 They cried to thee, and they were saved: * they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
21:7 But I am a worm, and no man: * the reproach of men, and the outcast of the people.
21:8 All they that saw me have laughed me to scorn: * they have spoken with the lips, and wagged the head.
21:9 He hoped in the Lord, let him deliver him: * let him save him, seeing he delighteth in him.
21:10 For thou art he that hast drawn me out of the womb: * my hope from the breasts of my mother. I was cast upon thee from the womb.
21:11 From my mother’s womb thou art my God, * depart not from me.
21:12 For tribulation is very near: * for there is none to help me.
21:13 Many calves have surrounded me: * fat bulls have besieged me.
21:14 They have opened their mouths against me, * as a lion ravening and roaring.
21:15 I am poured out like water; * and all my bones are scattered.
21:15 My heart is become like wax melting * in the midst of my bowels.
21:16 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue hath cleaved to my jaws: * and thou hast brought me down into the dust of death.
21:17 For many dogs have encompassed me: * the council of the malignant hath besieged me.
21:17 They have dug my hands and feet. * They have numbered all my bones.
21:18 And they have looked and stared upon me. * They parted my garments amongst them; and upon my vesture they cast lots.
21:20 But thou, O Lord, remove not thy help to a distance from me; * look towards my defence.
21:21 Deliver, O God, my soul from the sword: * my only one from the hand of the dog.
21:22 Save me from the lion’s mouth; * and my lowness from the horns of the unicorns.
21:23 I will declare thy name to my brethren: * in the midst of the church will I praise thee.
21:24 Ye that fear the Lord, praise him: * all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him.
21:25 Let all the seed of Israel fear him: * because he hath not slighted nor despised the supplication of the poor man.
21:25 Neither hath he turned away his face from me: * and when I cried to him he heard me.
21:26 With thee is my praise in a great church: * I will pay my vows in the sight of them that fear him.
21:27 The poor shall eat and shall be filled: and they shall praise the Lord that seek him: * their hearts shall live for ever and ever.
21:28 All the ends of the earth * shall remember, and shall be converted to the Lord:
21:28 And all the kindreds of the Gentiles * shall adore in his sight.
21:29 For the kingdom is the Lord’s; * and he shall have dominion over the nations.
21:30 All the fat ones of the earth have eaten and have adored: * all they that go down to the earth shall fall before him.
21:31 And to him my soul shall live: * and my seed shall serve him.
21:32 There shall be declared to the Lord a generation to come: * and the heavens shall shew forth his justice to a people that shall be born, which the Lord hath made.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

22:2 Super aquam refectiónis educávit me: * ánimam meam convértit.
22:3 Dedúxit me super sémitas justítiæ, * propter nomen suum.
22:4 Nam, et si ambulávero in médio umbræ mortis, non timébo mala: * quóniam tu mecum es.
22:4 Virga tua, et báculus tuus: * ipsa me consoláta sunt.
22:5 Parásti in conspéctu meo mensam, * advérsus eos, qui tríbulant me.
22:5 Impinguásti in óleo caput meum: * et calix meus inébrians quam præclárus est!
22:6 Et misericórdia tua subsequétur me * ómnibus diébus vitæ meæ:
22:6 Et ut inhábitem in domo Dómini, * in longitúdinem diérum.

22:3 He hath led me on the paths of justice, * for his own name’s sake.
22:4 For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, * for thou art with me.
22:4 Thy rod and thy staff, * they have comforted me.
22:5 Thou hast prepared a table before me * against them that afflict me.
22:5 Thou hast anointed my head with oil; * and my chalice which inebriateth me, how goodly is it!

26:1 Dóminus protéctor vitæ meæ, * a quo trepidábo?
26:2 Dum apprópiant super me nocéntes, * ut edant carnes meas:

26:6 In petra exaltávit me: * et nunc exaltávit caput meum super inimícos meos.
26:6 Circuívi, et immolávi in tabernáculo ejus hóstiam vociferatiónis: * cantábo, et psalmum dicam Dómino.

30:6 In manus tuas comméndo spíritum meum: * redemísti me, Dómine, Deus veritátis.
30:7 Odísti observántes vanitátes, * supervácue.
30:7 Ego autem in Dómino sperávi: * exsultábo, et lætábor in misericórdia tua.
30:8 Quóniam respexísti humilitátem meam, * salvásti de necessitátibus ánimam meam.
30:9 Nec conclusísti me in mánibus inimíci: * statuísti in loco spatióso pedes meos.
30:10 Miserére mei, Dómine, quóniam tríbulor: * conturbátus est in ira óculus meus, ánima mea, et venter meus:
30:11 Quóniam defécit in dolóre vita mea: * et anni mei in gemítibus.
30:11 Infirmáta est in paupertáte virtus mea: * et ossa mea conturbáta sunt.
30:12 Super omnes inimícos meos factus sum oppróbrium et vicínis meis valde: * et timor notis meis.
30:12 Qui vidébant me, foras fugérunt a me: * oblivióni datus sum, tamquam mórtuus a corde.
30:13 Factus sum tamquam vas pérditum: * quóniam audívi vituperatiónem multórum commorántium in circúitu.
30:14 In eo dum convenírent simul advérsum me, * accípere ánimam meam consiliáti sunt.
30:15 Ego autem in te sperávi, Dómine: * dixi: Deus meus es tu: in mánibus tuis sortes meæ.

30:17 Illústra fáciem tuam super servum tuum, salvum me fac in misericórdia tua: * Dómine, non confúndar, quóniam invocávi te.
30:18 Erubéscant ímpii, et deducántur in inférnum: * muta fiant lábia dolósa.
30:19 Quæ loquúntur advérsus justum iniquitátem: * in supérbia, et in abusióne.
30:20 Quam magna multitúdo dulcédinis tuæ, Dómine, * quam abscondísti timéntibus te.
30:20 Perfecísti eis, qui sperant in te, * in conspéctu filiórum hóminum.
30:21 Abscóndes eos in abscóndito faciéi tuæ * a conturbatióne hóminum.
30:21 Próteges eos in tabernáculo tuo * a contradictióne linguárum.
30:22 Benedíctus Dóminus: * quóniam mirificávit misericórdiam suam mihi in civitáte muníta.

Psalm 30 [11]
30:2 In thee, O Lord, have I hoped, let me never be confounded: * deliver me in thy justice.
30:3 Bow down thy ear to me: * make haste to deliver me.
30:3 Be thou unto me a God, a protector, and a house of refuge, * to save me.
30:4 For thou art my strength and my refuge; * and for thy name’s sake thou wilt lead me, and nourish me.
30:5 Thou wilt bring me out of this snare, which they have hidden for me: * for thou art my protector.
30:6 Into thy hands I commend my spirit: * thou hast redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth.
30:7 Thou hast hated them that regard vanities, * to no purpose.
30:7 But I have hoped in the Lord: * I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy.
30:8 For thou hast regarded my humility, * thou hast saved my soul out of distresses.
30:9 And thou hast not shut me up in the hands of the enemy: * thou hast set my feet in a spacious place.
30:10 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am afflicted: * my eye is troubled with wrath, my soul, and my belly:
30:11 For my life is wasted with grief: * and my years in sighs.
30:11 My strength is weakened through poverty * and my bones are disturbed.
30:12 I am become a reproach among all my enemies, and very much to my neighbours; * and a fear to my acquaintance.
30:12 They that saw me without fled from me. * I am forgotten as one dead from the heart.
30:13 I am become as a vessel that is destroyed. * For I have heard the blame of many that dwell round about.
30:14 While they assembled together against me, * they consulted to take away my life.
30:15 But I have put my trust in thee, O Lord: * I said: Thou art my God. My lots are in thy hands.
30:16 Deliver me out of the hands of my enemies; * and from them that persecute me
30:17 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; save me in thy mercy. * Let me not be confounded, O Lord, for I have called upon thee.
30:18 Let the wicked be ashamed, and be brought down to hell. * Let deceitful lips be made dumb.
30:19 Which speak iniquity against the just, * with pride and abuse.
30:20 How great is the multitude of thy sweetness, O Lord, * which thou hast hidden for them that fear thee!
30:20 Which thou hast wrought for them that hope in thee, * in the sight of the sons of men.
30:21 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy face, * from the disturbance of men.
30:21 Thou shalt protect them in thy tabernacle * from the contradiction of tongues.
30:22 Blessed be the Lord, * for he hath shewn his wonderful mercy to me in a fortified city.
30:23 But I said in the excess of my mind: * I am cast away from before thy eyes.
30:23 Therefore thou hast heard the voice of my prayer, * when I cried to thee.
30:24 O love the Lord, all ye his saints: * for the Lord will require truth, and will repay them abundantly that act proudly.
30:25 Do ye manfully, and let your heart be strengthened, * all ye that hope in the Lord.
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.

31:6 Pro hac orábit ad te omnis sanctus, * in témpore opportúno.
31:6 Verúmtamen in dilúvio aquárum multárum, * ad eum non approximábunt.
31:7 Tu es refúgium meum a tribulatióne, quæ circúmdedit me: * exsultátio mea, érue me a circumdántibus me.
31:8 Intelléctum tibi dabo, et ínstruam te in via hac, qua gradiéris: * firmábo super te óculos meos.
31:9 Nolíte fíeri sicut equus et mulus, * quibus non est intelléctus.
31:9 In camo et freno maxíllas eórum constrínge, * qui non appróximant ad te.

Psalm 31 [12]
31:1 Blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven * and whose sins are covered.
31:2 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord hath not imputed sin, * and in whose spirit there is no guile.
31:3 Because I was silent my bones grew old; * whilst I cried out all the day long.
31:4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: * I am turned in my anguish, whilst the thorn is fastened.
31:5 I have acknowledged my sin to thee, * and my injustice I have not concealed.
31:5 I said I will confess against myself my injustice to the Lord: * and thou hast forgiven the wickedness of my sin.
31:6 For this shall every one that is holy pray to thee * in a seasonable time.
31:6 And yet in a flood of many waters, * they shall not come nigh unto him.
31:7 Thou art my refuge from the trouble which hath encompassed me: * my joy, deliver me from them that surround me.
31:8 I will give thee understanding, and I will instruct thee in this way, in which thou shalt go: * I will fix my eyes upon thee.
31:9 Do not become like the horse and the mule, * who have no understanding.
31:9 With bit and bridle bind fast their jaws, * who come not near unto thee.

Lectio 4
De Expositione sancti Hieronymi Presbyteri in Isaiam Prophetam.
Lib. 4. in cap. 11. Isaiae.
Egredietur virga de radice Jesse. Usque ad principium visionis, vel ponderis Babylonis, quod vidit Isaias, filius Amos, omnis haec prophetia de Christo est: quam per partes volumus explanare, ne simul proposita atque disserta lectoris confundat memoriam. Virgam et florem de radice Jesse ipsum Dominum Judaei interpretantur: quod scilicet in virga regnantis potentia, in flore pulchritudo monstretur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Ecce veniet Dominus, protector noster, sanctus Israël,
* Coronam regni habens in capite suo.
V. Et dominabitur a mari usque ad mare, et a flumine usque ad terminos orbis terrarum.
R. Coronam regni habens in capite suo.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May God the Father Omnipotent, be to us merciful and clement. Amen.

Reading 4
From the Commentary on the Prophecies of Isaiah made by St Jerome, Priest (at Bethlehem)
Book iv. c. xi.
And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse. From the beginning of the Book of this Prophet till the xiiith chapter, where commenceth the vision, or burden of Babylon, the whole of the vision of Isaiah, the son of Amoz, is one continual prophecy of Christ. We must explain it part by part, for if we were to take it all at once, the memory of the reader would be confused. According to the Jewish commentators, the rod and the flower would both relate to the Lord Himself. They take the rod to mean the sceptre of His Royal dominion, and the flower the loveliness of His beauty.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Behold, there cometh the Lord, our defender, the Holy One of Israel,
* Wearing a royal crown upon His head.
V. And His dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.
R. Wearing a royal crown upon His head.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Lectio 5
Nos autem virgam de radice Jesse sanctam Mariam Virginem intelligamus, quae nullum habuit sibi fruticem cohaerentem, de qua et supra legimus: Ecce virgo concipiet et pariet filium. Et florem, Dominum Salvatorem, qui dicit in Cantico canticorum: Ego flos campi, et lilium convallium.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Sicut mater consolatur filios suos, ita consolabor vos, dicit Dominus: et de Jerusalem civitate quam elegi, veniet vobis auxilium:
* Et videbitis, et gaudebit cor vestrum.
V. Dabo in Sion salutem, et in Jerusalem gloriam meam.
R. Et videbitis, et gaudebit cor vestrum
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
We, however, understand that the rod out of the root of Jesse signifieth the holy Virgin Mary. She was a clean stem that had as yet put forth no shoot; as we have read above Behold, the Virgin shall conceive and bear a son. (Isa. vii. 14.) And the flower we believe to mean the Lord our Redeemer, Who hath elsewhere compared Himself to a flower; I am a flower of the plain, and a lily of the valleys. Cant. ii. 1.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. As a mother comforteth her children, so will I comfort you, saith the Lord; My help also cometh unto you out of Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen.
* And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice.
V. I will place salvation in Zion and in Jerusalem My glory.
R. And when ye shall see this, your heart shall rejoice.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ignem sui amóris accéndat Deus in córdibus nostris. Amen.

Lectio 6
Super hunc igitur florem, qui de trunco et radice Jesse per Mariam Virginem repente consurget, requiescet Spiritus Domini: quia in ipso complacuit omnem plenitudinem divinitatis habitare corporaliter: nequaquam per partes, ut in ceteris Sanctis: sed juxta Evangelium eorum, quod hebraeo sermone conscriptum legunt Nazaraei: Descendet super eum omnis fons Spiritus sancti. Dominus autem Spiritus est; et ubi Spiritus Domini, ibi libertas.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Jerusalem plantabis vineam in montibus tuis: exsultabis, quoniam dies Domini veniet: surge Sion, convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum: gaude et laetare Jacob:
* Quia de medio Gentium Salvator tuus veniet.
V. Exsulta satis filia Sion: jubila filia Jerusalem.
R. Quia de medio Gentium Salvator tuus veniet.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Quia de medio Gentium Salvator tuus veniet.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Spirit's fire Divine in our hearts enkindled shine. Amen.

Reading 6
The Spirit of the Lord then shall rest upon this flower; this flower which shall come forth from the stem and roots of Jesse by means of the Virgin Mary. And truly the Spirit of the Lord did rest upon our Redeemer. It is written that In Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Col. ii. 9. The Spirit was not shed on Him by measure, as it is upon the
4 Isa. Ixvi. 13, 14. Isa. xlvi. 13. Saints. To Him we may apply the words of the Hebrew Gospel used by the Nazarenes; The whole fountain of the Holy Ghost shall be poured forth upon Him The Lord is a spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Cor. iii. 17.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Thou shalt yet plant vines upon thy mountains, O Jerusalem thou shalt sing for joy, for the day of the Lord cometh; arise, O Zion, and turn unto the Lord thy God; rejoice and be glad, O Jacob.
* For thy Saviour cometh from the midst of the nations.
V. Sing aloud for joy, O daughter of Zion; shout with gladness, O daughter of Jerusalem.
R. For thy Saviour cometh from the midst of the nations.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. For thy Saviour cometh from the midst of the nations.

40:12 Quis mensus est pugillo aquas, et cælos palmo ponderavit? quis appendit tribus digitis molem terræ, et liberavit in pondere montes, et colles in statera?
40:13 Quis adjuvit spiritum Domini? aut quis consiliarius ejus fuit, et ostendit illi?
40:14 Cum quo iniit consilium, et instruxit eum, et docuit eum semitam justitiæ, et erudivit eum scientiam, et viam prudentiæ ostendit illi?
40:15 Ecce gentes quasi stilla situlæ, et quasi momentum stateræ reputatæ sunt; ecce insulæ quasi pulvis exiguus.

40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather together the lambs with his arm, and shall take them up in his bosom, and he himself shall carry them that are with young.
40:12 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and weighed the heavens with his palm? who hath poised with three fingers the bulk of the earth, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?
40:13 Who hath forwarded the spirit of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor, and hath taught him?
40:14 With whom hath he consulted, and who hath instructed him, and taught him the path of justice, and taught him knowledge, and shewed him the way of understanding?
40:15 Behold the Gentiles are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the smallest grain of a balance: behold the islands are as a little dust.

49:8 Thus saith the Lord: In an acceptable time I have heard thee, and in the day of salvation I have helped thee: and I have preserved thee, and given thee to be a covenant of the people, that thou mightest raise up the earth, and possess the inheritances that were destroyed:
49:9 That thou mightest say to them that are bound: Come forth: and to them that are in darkness: Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in every plain.
49:10 They shall not hunger, nor thirst, neither shall the heat nor the sun strike them: for he that is merciful to them, shall be their shepherd, and at the fountains of waters he shall give them drink.

Homilia sancti Gregorii Papae.
Homilia 6. in Evang. post init.
Visis tot signis tantisque virtutibus, non scandalizari quisque potuit, sed admirari. Sed infidelium mens grave in illo scandalum pertulit, cum eum post tot miracula morientem vidit. Unde et Paulus dicit: Nos autem praedicamus Christum crucifixum, Judaeis quidem scandalum, Gentibus autem stultitiam. Stultum quippe hominibus visum est, ut pro hominibus auctor vitae moreretur: et inde contra eum homo scandalum sumpsit, unde ei amplius debitor fieri debuit. Nam tanto Deus ab hominibus dignius honorandus est, quanto pro hominibus et indigna suscepit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Egredietur Dominus de Samaria ad portam quae respicit ad Orientem: et veniet in Bethlehem, ambulans super aquas redemptionis Judae:
* Tunc salvus erit omnis homo: quia ecce veniet.
V. Et praeparabitur in misericordia solum ejus, et sedebit super iliud in veritate.
R. Tunc salvus erit omnis homo: quia ecce veniet.

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 Matthew
Matt 11:2-10
In that time when John had heard in prison the works of Christ: sending two of his disciples he said to him: Art thou he that art to come, or look we for another? And so on.

Homily by Pope St Gregory the Great,
6th Homily on the Gospels.
The sight of so many signs and so many mighty works should have been a source of wonder, and not a stumbling-block. And yet the unfaithful *Jer. xxxi. 5. found these very works a rock of offence, when they afterwards saw Him Who had worked so many miracles dying on the Cross. Hence Paul saith We preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling-block and unto the Gentiles foolishness. (1 Cor. i. 23.) It is indeed folly in the eyes of men to say that the Author of life died for men and thus men put as a stumbling-block to hinder them from coming to Jesus, the very thing that doth oblige them the most unto Him. For the more humbling God hath undergone for man's sake, the more worthy is He that man should worship Him.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord shall go forth out of Samaria unto the gate that looketh toward the East; and He shall come into Bethlehem, walking upon the waters of the redemption of Judah.
* Then shall every one be saved for, behold, He cometh.
V. And in mercy shall His throne be established, and He shall sit upon it in truth.
R. Then shall every one be saved for, behold, He cometh.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Quid est ergo dicere: Beatus qui non fuerit scandalizatus in me; nisi aperta voce abjectionem mortis suae humilitatemque signare? Ac si patenter dicat: Mira quidem facio, sed abjecta perpeti non dedignor. Quia ergo moriendo te subsequor, cavendum valde est hominibus, ne in me mortem despiciant, qui signa venerantur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Festina, ne tardaveris Domine:
* Et libera populum tuum.
V. Veni Domine, et noli tardare: relaxa facinora plebi tuae.
R. Et libera populum tuum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 8
And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in Me. Now what is this, but a plain mention of that time, when He afterwards humbled Himself, becoming obedient unto death, even the death of the Cross? It is as if He said I indeed do wonderful works, but the day will come when I shall not refuse to suffer shame and evil treatment. Take heed then, ye who now worship Me for the works' sake, that when I come to die ye despise Me not for My death's sake.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Make haste, O Lord, make no tarrying.
* And deliver thy people.
V. O Lord, come and make no tarrying loose the bonds of thy people.
R. And deliver thy people.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Sed dimissis Joannis discipulis, quid de eodem Joanne turbis dicat, audiamus. Quid existis in desertum videre? Arundinem vento agitatam? Quod videlicet non asserendo, sed negando intulit. Arundinem quippe mox ut aura contigerit, in partem alteram inflectit. Et quid per arundinem, nisi carnalis animus designatur? Qui mox ut favore vel detractione tangitur, statim in partem quamlibet inclinatur?
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Ecce Dominus veniet cum splendore descendens, et virtus ejus cum eo,
* Visitare populum suum in pace, et constituere super eum vitam sempiternam.
V. Ecce Dominus noster cum virtute veniet
R. Visitare populum suum in pace, et constituere super eum vitam sempiternam.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Visitare populum suum in pace, et constituere super eum vitam sempiternam.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 9
And, as the disciples of John departed, what did Jesus say unto the multitudes concerning this same John? Let us hear. What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? Here our Lord teacheth not by assertion, but by negation. Now a reed is a thing so made that as soon as the wind bloweth upon it, it bendeth it over toward the opposite quarter. And the fleshly-minded man is like a human reed. As he is praised or blamed so he bendeth himself in the one direction or the other.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Behold, the Lord cometh down with glory, and His host is with Him.
* To visit His people in peace, and to establish them in life everlasting.
V. Behold, our Lord cometh with an host.
R. To visit His people in peace, and to establish them in life everlasting.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. To visit His people in peace, and to establish them in life everlasting.

Sequentia Sancti Evangelii secundum Matthaeum
Matt 11:2-10
11:2 Joannes autem cum audisset in vinculis opera Christi, mittens duos de discipulis suis,
11:3 Ait illi: Tu es, qui venturus es, an alium exspectamus?
11:4 Et respondens Jesus ait illis: Euntes renuntiate Joanni quae audistis, et vidistis.
11:5 Caeci vident, claudi ambulant, leprosi mundantur, surdi audiunt, mortui resurgunt, pauperes evangelizantur:
11:6 Et beatus est, qui non fuerit scandalizatus in me.
11:7 Illis autem abeuntibus, cœpit Jesus dicere ad turbas de Joanne: Quid existis in desertum videre? arundinem vento agitatam?
11:8 Sed quid existis videre? hominem mollibus vestitum? Ecce qui mollibus vestiuntur, in domibus regum sunt.
11:9 Sed quid existis videre? prophetam? Etiam dico vobis, et plus quam prophetam.
11:10 Hic est enim de quo scriptum est: Ecce ego mitto angelum meum ante faciem tuam, qui praeparabit viam tuam ante te.
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 Matthew
Matt 11:2-10
11:2 Now when John had heard in prison the works of Christ: sending two of his disciples he said to him:
11:3 Art thou he that art to come, or look we for another?
11:4 And Jesus making answer said to them: Go and relate to John what you have heard and seen.
11:5 The blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead rise again, the poor have the gospel preached to them.
11:6 And blessed is he that shall not be scandalized in me.
11:7 And when they went their way, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John: What went you out into the desert to see? a reed shaken with the wind?
11:8 But what went you out to see? a man clothed in soft garments? Behold they that are clothed in soft garments, are in the houses of kings.
11:9 But what went you out to see? a prophet? yea I tell you, and more than a prophet.
11:10 For this is he of whom it is written: Behold I send my angel before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee.
Thou art worthy of praise, thou art worthy of hymns, to Thee be glory: to God the Father and the Son with the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.
