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.

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.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Quem terra, pontus, sídera
Colunt, adórant, prædicant,
Trinam regéntem máchinam,
Claustrum Maríæ bájulat.

Cui luna, sol, et ómnia
Desérviunt per témpora,
Perfúsa cæli grátia,
Gestant puéllæ víscera.

Beáta Mater múnere,
Cujus supérnus ártifex
Mundum pugíllo cóntinens,
Ventris sub arca clausus est.

Beáta cæli núntio,
Fœcúnda sancto Spíritu,
Desiderátus géntibus,
Cujus per alvum fusus est.

Jesu, tibi sit glória,
Qui natus es de Vírgine,
Cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
In sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
The God whom earth, and sea, and sky
Adore, and laud, and magnify,
Who o'er their threefold fabric reigns,
The Virgin's spotless womb contains.

The God, whose will by moon and sun
And all things in due course is done,
Is borne upon a maiden's breast,
By fullest heavenly grace possest,

How blest that mother, in whose shrine
The great artificer divine,
Whose hand contains the earth and sky,
Vouchsafed, as in his ark, to lie.

Blest, in the message Gabriel brought;
Blest, by the work the Spirit wrought;
From whom the great desire of earth
Took human flesh and human birth.

All honour, laud, and glory be,
O Jesu, Virgin-born to thee;
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete.
Amen.

Lesson from the book of Proverbs
Prov 8:12-17
12 I wisdom dwell in counsel, and am present in learned thoughts.
13 The fear of the Lord hateth evil: I hate arrogance, and pride, and every wicked way, and a mouth with a double tongue.
14 Counsel and equity is mine, prudence is mine, strength is mine.
15 By me kings reign, and lawgivers decree just things,
16 By me princes rule, and the mighty decree justice.
17 I love them that love me: and they that in the morning early watch for me, shall find me.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O how holy and how spotless is thy virginity; I am too dull to praise thee:
* For thou hast borne in thy breast Him Whom the heavens cannot contain.
V. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
R. For thou hast borne in thy breast Him Whom the heavens cannot contain.

Prov 8:18-25
18 With me are riches and glory, glorious riches and justice.
19 For my fruit is better than gold and the precious stone, and my blossoms than choice silver.
20 I walk in the way of justice, in the midst of the paths of judgment,
21 That I may enrich them that love me, and may fill their treasures.
22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his ways, before he made any thing from the beginning.
23 I was set up from eternity, and of old before the earth was made.
24 The depths were not as yet, and I was already conceived. neither had the fountains of waters as yet sprung out:
25 The mountains with their huge bulk had not as yet been established: before the hills I was brought forth:
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Sermo sancti Bernárdi Abbátis
Ex Homil. 2 super Missus est, circa finem
Et nomen, inquit, Vírginis Maria. Loquámur pauca, et super hoc nómine, quod interpretátum maris stella dícitur, et Matri Vírgini valde conveniénter aptátur. Ipsa namque aptíssime síderi comparátur, quia sicut sine sui corruptióne sidus suum emíttit rádium, sic absque sui læsióne Virgo parturívit Fílium. Nec síderi rádius suam mínuit claritátem, nec Vírgini Fílius suam integritátem. Ipsa est ígitur nóbilis illa stella ex Jacob orta, cujus rádius univérsum orbem illúminat, cujus splendor et præfúlget in supérnis, et ínferos pénetrat; terras étiam perlústrans, et calefáciens magis mentes quam córpora, fovet virtútes, éxcoquit vítia. Ipsa, inquam, est præclára et exímia stella super hoc mare magnum et spatiósum necessário subleváta, micans méritis, illústrans exémplis.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Sicut cedrus exaltáta sum in Líbano, et sicut cypréssus in monte Sion: quasi myrrha elécta,
* Dedi suavitátem odóris.
V. Et sicut cinnamómum et bálsamum aromatízans.
R. Dedi suavitátem odóris.

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

Reading 4
From the Sermons of St. Bernard, Abbot of Clairvaux.
Second Homily on Luke i. 26
It is said: And the virgin's name was Mary. Let us speak a few words upon this name, which signifieth, being interpreted, Star of the Sea, and suiteth very well the Maiden Mother, who may very meetly be likened unto a star. A star giveth forth her rays without any harm to herself, and the Virgin brought forth her Son without any hurt to her virginity. The light of a star taketh nothing away from the star itself, and the birth of her offspring took nothing away from the Virginity of Mary. She is that noble star which was to come out of Jacob, Num. xxiv. 17, whose brightness still sheddeth lustre upon all the earth, whose rays are most brilliant in heaven, and shine even unto hell, lighting up earth midway, and warming souls rather than bodies, fostering good and scaring away evil. She, I say, is a clear and shining star, twinkling with excellencies, and resplendent with example, needfully set to look down upon the surface of this great and wide sea.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I was exalted like a cedar in Lebanon, and as a cypress-tree upon Mount Zion. Like the best myrrh
* I yielded a pleasant odour.
V. Like cinnamon and sweet balsam.
R. I yielded a pleasant odour.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

O quisquis te intélligis in hujus sǽculi proflúvio magis inter procéllas et tempestátes fluctuáre, quam per terram ambuláre; ne avértas óculos a fulgóre hujus síderis, si non vis óbrui procéllis. Si insúrgant venti tentatiónum, si incúrras scópulos tribulatiónum, réspice stellam, voca Maríam. Si jactáris supérbiæ undis, si ambitiónis, si detractiónis, si æmulatiónis, réspice stellam, voca Maríam. Si iracúndia aut avarítia aut carnis illécebra navículam concússerit mentis, réspice ad Maríam. Si críminum immanitáte turbátus, consciéntiæ fœditáte confúsus, judícii horróre pertérritus, bárathro incípias absorbéri tristítiæ, desperatiónis abýsso, cógita Maríam.

R. Deo grátias.

R. Quæ est ista quæ procéssit sicut sol, et formósa tamquam Jerúsalem?
* Vidérunt eam fíliæ Sion, et beátam dixérunt, et regínæ laudavérunt eam.
V. Et sicut dies verni circúmdabant eam flores rosárum et lília convállium.
R. Vidérunt eam fíliæ Sion, et beátam dixérunt, et regínæ laudavérunt eam.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
Thou, whosoever thou art, that knowest thyself to be here not so much walking upon firm ground, as battered to and fro by the gales and storms of this life's ocean, if thou wouldest not be overwhelmed by the tempest, keep thine eyes fixed upon this star's clear shining. If the hurricanes of temptation rise against thee, or thou art running upon the rocks of trouble, look to the star, call on Mary. If the waves of pride, or ambition, or slander, or envy toss thee, look to the star, call on Mary. If the billows of anger or avarice, or the enticements of the flesh beat against thy soul's bark, look to Mary. If the enormity of thy sins trouble thee, if the foulness of thy conscience confound thee, if the dread of judgment appall thee, if thou begin to slip into the deep of despondency, into the pit of despair, think of Mary.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Who is this that cometh up like the sun? This, comely as Jerusalem?
* The daughters of Zion saw her, and called her blessed: the queens also, and they praised her.
V. And about her it was as the flower of roses in the spring of the year, and lilies of the valleys.
R. The daughters of Zion saw her, and called her blessed the queens also, and they praised her.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ignem sui amóris accéndat Deus in córdibus nostris. Amen.

Reading 6
In danger, in difficulty, or in doubt, think on Mary, call on Mary. Let her not be away from thy mouth or from thine heart, and that thou mayest not lack the succour of her prayers, turn not aside from the example of her conversation. If thou follow her, thou wilt never go astray. If thou pray to her, thou wilt never have need to despair. If thou keep her in mind, thou wilt never wander. If she hold thee, thou wilt never fall. If she lead thee, thou wilt never be weary. If she help thee, thou wilt reach home safe at the last and so thou wilt prove in thyself how meetly it is said And the virgin's name was Mary. {Here ends St Bernard.) Particular honours were already paid to this worshipful name in diverse parts of the Christian world, but the Bishop of Rome, Innocent XI., ordered this Feast in honour of it to be held every year throughout the whole Church, upon the Lord's Day within the Octave of the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as an everlasting thanksgiving for the great blessing that, under her protection, the brutal Sultan of the Turks, who was trampling upon the necks of the Christian population, was thoroughly beaten before the walls of Vienna, (upon the 12th day of September, in the year 1683.)
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. When the Lord beheld the daughter of Jerusalem adorned with her jewels, He greatly desired her beauty
* And when the daughters of Zion saw her, they cried out that she was most blessed, saying thy name is as ointment poured forth.
V. Upon thy right hand did stand the Queen in a vesture of gold wrought about with diverse colours.
R. And when the daughters of Zion saw her, they cried out that she was most blessed, saying:
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Thy name is as ointment poured forth.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Lucam
Luc 1:26-38
In illo témpore: Missus est Angelus Gabriel a Deo in civitátem Galilææ, cui nomen Nazareth, ad Vírginem desponsatam viro, cui nomen erat Joseph, de domo David, et nomen Vírginis Maria. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Petri Chrysólogi
Sermo 142 de Annuntiatione
Audístis hódie, fratres caríssimi, Angelum cum muliere de hóminis reparatióne tractántem. Audístis agi, ut homo cursibus eisdem, quibus delapsus fuerat ad mortem, rediret ad vitam. Agit, agit cum Maria Angelus de salúte, quia cum Heva angelus egerat de ruína. Audístis Angelum de carnis nostræ limo templum divinæ majestátis arte ineffábili construentem. Audístis in terris Deum in cælis hóminem sacraménto incomprehensibili collocari. Audístis inaudíta ratióne in uno corpore Deum hominémque misceri. Audístis frágilem nostræ carnis natúram ad portandam totam Deitátis glóriam angelica exhortatióne roborari.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Felix namque es, sacra Virgo María, et omni laude digníssima:
* Quia ex te ortus est sol justítiæ, Christus, Deus noster.
V. Ora pro pópulo, intérveni pro clero, intercéde pro devóto femíneo sexu: séntiant omnes tuum juvámen, quicúmque célebrant tui sancti nóminis commemoratiónem.
R. Quia ex te ortus est sol justítiæ, Christus, Deus noster.

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 1:26-38
At that time: The Angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a Virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the Virgin's name was Mary. And so on.

Homily by St. Peter Chrysologus, Archbishop of Ravenna.
142nd on the Annunciation
Dearly beloved brethren, ye have this day heard how an Angel treated with a woman touching the regeneration of mankind. Ye have heard how it was arranged that man should return to life by the same mean whereby he had fallen into death. The Angel treateth, treateth with Mary concerning salvation, because an angel had treated with Eve concerning destruction. Ye have heard how an Angel set about to raise with unspeakable building a temple of the Divine Majesty out of the dust of the earth. Ye have heard how by a mystery which cannot be understood, God got a place on earth and man a place in heaven. Ye have heard how by a working hitherto unheard of, God and man are joined together in one Body. Ye have heard how at the message of an angel, the weak nature whereof our flesh is sharer, became strong to bear the whole glory of the Godhead.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O Holy Virgin Mary, happy indeed art thou, and right worthy of all praise
* For out of thee rose the Sun of righteousness, even Christ our God.
V. Pray for the people, plead for the clergy, make intercession for all women vowed to God. May all that are keeping this Commemoration of thy Name feel the might of thine assistance.
R. For out of thee rose the Sun of righteousness, even Christ our God.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipsa Virgo vírginum intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Denique, ne tanto pónderi cæléstis fabricæ in Maria subtilis nostri corporis arena succumberet, et in Vírgine totius generis humani portatúra fructum, virga ténuis frangerétur; fugatúra metum vox Angeli mox præcessit, dicens: Ne timeas, Maria. Ante causam dignitas Vírginis annuntiátur ex nómine; nam Maria Hebræo sermóne, Latine Domina nuncupátur. Vocat ergo Angelus Dominam, ut Dominatoris Genitricem trepidátio déserat servitutis, quam nasci et vocari Dominam ipsa sui Gérminis fecit et impetrávit auctoritas. Ne timeas, Maria, invenísti enim grátiam. Verum est, quia, qui invénit grátiam, nescit timére: Invenísti grátiam.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Beátam me dicent omnes generatiónes,
* Quia fecit mihi Dóminus magna qui potens est, et sanctum nomen ejus.
V. Et misericórdia ejus a progénie in progénies timéntibus eum.
R. Quia fecit mihi Dóminus magna qui potens est, et sanctum nomen ejus.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Quia fecit mihi Dóminus magna qui potens est, et sanctum nomen ejus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. She whose feast-day we are keeping, Mary, blessed Maid of Maidens, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
Then, lest the frail clay of humanity should break down under the weight of God's work, and in Mary the tender stem should snap, which was about to bear the fruit of all mankind, the Angel's first words were a preventive against fear. And the Angel said unto her Fear not, Mary. Even before the matter is revealed, the exalted station of this Virgin is made clear by her very name, for the name Mary is an Hebrew word, and signifieth Lady. The Angel therefore greeteth her as Lady, that the Mother of the Lord may lay aside the fearfulness of His handmaiden, whom the will of her own Offspring had made to be born and to be called a Lady. Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace. He that hath found grace, need fear no more. Thou hast found grace.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. All generations shall call me blessed.
* For He that is mighty, even the Lord, hath done to me great things; and Holy is His Name.
V. And his mercy is on them that fear Him, from generation to generation.
R. He that is mighty, even the Lord, hath done to me great things; and Holy is His Name.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. He that is mighty, even the Lord, hath done to me great things; and Holy is His Name.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Beata, quæ inter hómines audíre sola méruit præ ómnibus: Invenísti grátiam. Quantam? Quantam supérius díxerat: plenam. Et vere plenam, quæ largo imbre totam fúnderet et infúnderet creatúram: Invenísti enim grátiam apud Deum. Hæc cum dicit, et ipse Angelus mirátur, aut féminam tantum, aut omnes hómines vitam meruísse per féminam: stupet Angelus totum Deum veníre intra virginális úteri angústias, cui tota simul angústa est creatúra. Hinc est quod remorátur Angelus, hinc est quod vírginem vocat de mérito, de grátia compéllat, vix causam prodit audiénti, sane ut sensum promóveat, vix longa trepidatióne compónit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.


Te Deum
Te Deum laudámus: * te Dóminum confitémur.
Te ætérnum Patrem * omnis terra venerátur.
Tibi omnes Ángeli, * tibi Cæli, et univérsæ Potestátes:
Tibi Chérubim et Séraphim * incessábili voce proclámant:

(Fit reverentia) Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus * Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.

Pleni sunt cæli et terra * majestátis glóriæ tuæ.

Te Prophetárum * laudábilis númerus,

Venerándum tuum verum * et únicum Fílium;
Sanctum quoque * Paráclitum Spíritum.
Tu Rex glóriæ, * Christe.
Tu Patris * sempitérnus es Fílius.

Fit reverentia
Tu, ad liberándum susceptúrus hóminem: * non horruísti Vírginis úterum.

Tu, devícto mortis acúleo, * aperuísti credéntibus regna cælórum.
Tu ad déxteram Dei sedes, * in glória Patris.
Judex créderis * esse ventúrus.

Sequens versus dicitur flexis genibus
Te ergo quǽsumus, tuis fámulis súbveni, * quos pretióso sánguine redemísti.

Ætérna fac cum Sanctis tuis * in glória numerári.
Salvum fac pópulum tuum, Dómine, * et bénedic hereditáti tuæ.
Et rege eos, * et extólle illos usque in ætérnum.
Per síngulos dies * benedícimus te.

Fit reverentia, secundum consuetudinem
Et laudámus nomen tuum in sǽculum, * et in sǽculum sǽculi.

Dignáre, Dómine, die isto * sine peccáto nos custodíre.
Miserére nostri, Dómine, * miserére nostri.
Fiat misericórdia tua, Dómine, super nos, * quemádmodum sperávimus in te.
In te, Dómine, sperávi: * non confúndar in ætérnum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 9
Blessed is she who alone among mankind, and first among mankind deserved to hear: Thou hast found grace. And how much grace? Even as the Angel had said: Full! Full of grace. Full indeed! Grace like a bountiful shower drenched and soaked her whole being. For thou hast found grace with God. As he saith this, even the Angel doth marvel. He marvelleth that a woman should merit eternal life, that all men should merit it through her. The Angel marvelleth that the whole Godhead, he to whom the entire universe is small, should enter the narrow womb of a virgin. So he delayeth. He calleth her virgin. That was her right. He haileth her as full of grace. Then, with great trepidation he delivereth his message, scarcely able to phrase it so that it could be understood.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.


Te Deum
We praise thee, O God, * we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.
All the earth doth worship thee, * the Father everlasting.
To thee all Angels cry aloud, * the Heavens, and all the Powers therein.
To thee Cherubim and Seraphim * continually do cry.

(bow head) Holy, Holy, Holy * Lord God of Sabaoth;

Heaven and earth are full * of the Majesty of thy glory.
The glorious company of the Apostles * praise thee.
The goodly fellowship of the Prophets * praise thee.
The noble army of Martyrs * praise thee.
The holy Church throughout all the world * doth acknowledge thee;
The Father, * of an infinite Majesty.
Thine honourable, true, * and only Son;
Also the Holy Ghost, * the Comforter.
Thou art the King of Glory, * O Christ.
Thou art the everlasting * Son of the Father.

During the following verse all make a profound bow:
When thou tookest upon thee to deliver man, * thou didst not abhor the Virgin's womb.

When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death, * thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God, * in the glory of the Father.
We believe that thou shalt come * to be our Judge.

Kneel for the following verse
We therefore pray thee, help thy servants, * whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious Blood.

Make them to be numbered with thy Saints, * in glory everlasting.
O Lord, save thy people, * and bless thine heritage.
Govern them, * and lift them up for ever.
Day by day * we magnify thee;

During the following verse, by local custom, all make a profound bow.
And we worship thy Name * ever, world without end.

Vouchsafe, O Lord, to keep us * this day without sin.
O Lord, have mercy upon us, * have mercy upon us.
O Lord, let thy mercy lighten upon us, * as our trust is in thee.
O Lord, in thee have I trusted, * let me never be confounded.
Reliqua omittuntur, nisi Laudes separandae sint.
Skip the rest, unless praying Lauds separately.
