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. Christ, Son of God, subject to Mary and Joseph, * O come, let us worship 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.

Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart. And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.

Hymnus {ex Proprio de Tempore}
Sacra iam splendent decoráta lychnis
Templa, iam sertis redimítur ara,
Et pio fumant redoléntque acérræ
Thuris honóre.

Num iuvet Summo Géniti Parénte
Régios ortus celebráre cantu?
Num domus David, décora et vetústæ
Nómina gentis?

Grátius nobis memoráre parvum
Názaræ tectum, tenuémque cultum;
Grátius Iesu tácitam reférre
Cármine vitam.

Nili ab extrémis peregrínus oris,
Angeli ductu, própere remígrat
Multa perpéssus Puer, et patérno
Límine sospes,

Arte, qua Ioseph, húmili excoléndus
Abdito Iesus iuvenéscit ævo,
Seque fabrílis sócium labóris
Adicit ultro.

Irriget sudor mea membra, dixit,
Antequam sparso mádeant cruóre:
Hæc quoque humáno géneri expiándo
Pœna luátur.

Assidet Nato pia Mater almo,
Assidet Sponso bona nupta, felix
Si potest curas releváre fessis
Múnere amíco.

O neque expértes óperæ et labóris,
Nec mali ignári, míseros iuváte,
Quos reluctántes per acúta rerum
Urget egéstas.

Démite his fastus, quibus ampla splendet
Fáustitas, méntem date rebus æquam:
Quotquot implórant cólumen, benígno
Cérnite vultu.

Sit tibi, Iesu, decus atque virtus,
Sancta qui vitæ documénta præbes,
Quique cum summo Genitóre et almo
Flámine regnas.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Proper of the season}
A thousand lights their glory shed
On shrines and altars garlanded;
While swinging censers dusk the air
With perfumed prayer.

And shall we sing the ancestry
Of Jesus, Son of God most High?
Or the heroic names retrace
Of David’s race?

Sweeter is lowly Nazareth,
Where Jesus drew His childish breath—
Sweeter the singing that endears
His hidden years.

An Angel leads the pilgrim band
From Egypt to their native land,
Where Jesus clings to Joseph’s arm,
Secure from harm.

“And the Child grew in wisdom’s ken
And years and grace with God and men;”
And in His father’s humble art
Took share and part.

"With toil", saith He, “my limbs are wet,
Prefiguring the Bloody Sweat:”
Ah! how He bears our chastisement
With sweet content!

At Joseph’s bench, at Jesus’ side,
The Mother sits, the Virgin-Bride;
Happy, if she may cheer their hearts
With loving arts.

O Blessed Three! who felt the sting
Of want and toil and suffering,
Pity the needy and obscure
Lot of the poor.

Banish the “pride of life” from all
Whom ampler wealth and joys befall:
Be every heart with love repaid
That seeks your aid.

Glory to Thee, Jesu dear,
Model of holy living here!
Who reign’st, with Sire and Holy Ghost,
O’er heaven’s host.
Amen.

From the Apostolic Letters of Pope Leo XIII
Breve « Neminem fugit » 14 junii 1892
When God in his mercy determined to accomplish the work of man's renewal, which same had so many long ages awaited, he appointed and ordained this work on such wise that its very beginning might shew to the world the august spectacle of a Family which was known to be divinely constituted; that therein all men might behold a perfect model, as well of domestic life as of every virtue and pattern of holiness: for such indeed was the Holy Family of Nazareth. There in secret dwelt the Sun of Righteousness, until the time when he should shine out in full splendour in the sight of all nations. There Christ, our God and Saviour, lived with his Virgin Mother, and with that most holy man Joseph, who held to him the place of father. No one can doubt that in this Holy Family was displayed every virtue which can be called forth by an ordinary home life, with its mutual services of charity, its holy intercourse, and its practices of godly piety, since the Holy Family was destined to be a pattern to all others. For that very reason was it established by the merciful designs of Providence, namely, that every Christian, in every walk of life and in every place, might easily, if he would but give heed to it, have before him a motive and a pattern for the good life.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. As for me, I am poor and needy:
* But the Lord careth for me.
V. Thou shalt eat the labours of thine hands; blessed art thou, and happy shalt thou be.
R. But the Lord careth for me.
V. Iube, Dómine, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Reading 5
To all fathers of families, Joseph is verily the best model of paternal vigilance and care. In the most holy Virgin Mother of God, mothers may find an excellent example of love, modesty, resignation of spirit, and the perfecting of faith. And in Jesus, who was subject to his parents, the children of the family have a divine pattern of obedience which they can admire, reverence, and imitate. Those who are of noble birth may learn, from this Family of royal blood, how to live simply in times of prosperity, and how to retain their dignity in times of distress. The rich may learn that moral worth is to be more highly esteemed than wealth. Artisans, and all such as are bitterly grieved by the narrow and slender means of their families, if they would but consider the sublime holiness of the members of this domestic fellowship, cannot fail to find some cause for rejoicing in their lot, rather than for being merely dissatisfied with it. In common with the Holy Family, they have to work, and to provide for the daily wants of life. Joseph had to engage in trade, in order to live; even the divine hands laboured at an artisan's calling. It is not to be wondered at, that the wealthiest men, if truly wise, have been willing to cast away their riches, and to embrace a life of poverty with Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests,
* But the Son of Man hath not where to lay his head.
V. I am poor and needy, and in agony from my youth up.
R. But the Son of Man hath not where to lay his head.
V. Iube, Dómine, benedícere.

Quibus e rebus iure meritóque apud cathólicos Sacræ Famíliæ cultus matúre invéctus, maius in dies síngulos increméntum capit. Id quidem probant tum christianórum sodalitátes sub invocatióne Sacræ Famíliæ institútæ, tum singuláres honóres ei rédditi, tum potíssimum a decessóribus Nostris ad excitándum erga eam pietátis stúdium impertíta privilégia et grátiæ. Huiúsmodi cultus magno in honóre hábitus est iam inde a sǽculo décimo séptimo, latéque per Itáliam, Gálliam et Bélgium propagátus, totam fere Európam pervásit: deínde prætergréssus vastos Océani tractus, in Ameríca per Canadénsem regiónem, sese exténdit, faustísque efflóruit auspíciis. Síquidem nihil magis salutáre aut éfficax famíliis christiánis cogitári potest exémplo Sacræ Famíliæ, quæ perfectiónem absolutionémque compléctitur ómnium virtútum domesticárum. Sic imploráti inter domésticos paríetes adsint propítii Iesus, María et Ioseph, caritátem alant, mores regant, ad virtútem próvocent imitatióne sui, et quæ úndique instant mortáles ærúmnæ, eas leniéndo fáciant tolerabilióres. - Ad cultum vero Sacræ Famíliæ augéndum Leo Papa décimus tértius christiánas famílias eídem Sacræ Famíliæ consecrári præscrípsit: Benedíctus autem décimus quintus Offícium et Missam ad univérsam Ecclésiam exténdit.

From the foregoing it is evident how natural and fitting it was that devotion to the Holy Family should in due time have grown up amongst Catholics; and once begun, that it should spread far and wide. Proof of this lieth first in the sodalities instituted under the ínvocation of the Holy Family; then in the unique honours bestowed upon it; and above all, by the privileges and favours granted to this devotion by our predecessors to stimulate fervour and piety in its regard. This devotion was already held in great esteem in the seventeenth century. Widely propagated in Italy, France, and Belgium, it spread over almost the whole of Europe; thence, crossing the wide ocean, through Canada it made is way in the Americas, and finding favour there, became very flourishing. Indeed, among Christian families, nothing more salutary nor efficacious can be imagined than the example of the Holy Family, where are to be found all domestic virtues in perfection and completeness. When Jesus, Mary, and Joseph are invoked in the home, charity is likely to be maintained in the family through their example and heavenly entreaty; a good influence is thus exerted over conduct; the practice of virtue is thus incited; and thus the hardships which are everywhere wont to harass mankind, are both mitigated and made easier to bear. To increase devotion to the Holy Family, Pope Leo XIII prescribed that Christian families should be consecrated thereto. Benedict XV extended the Mass and Office to the whole Church.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Being in the form of God, he made himself of no reputation,
* And he took upon him the form of a servant.
V. He humbled himself, and became obedient, even unto death.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Lucam
Luc 2:42-52
Cum factus esset Iesus annórum duódecim, ascendéntibus illis Ierosólymam secúndum consuetúdinem diéi festi, consummatísque diébus, cum redirent, remánsit puer Iesus in Ierúsalem, et non cognovérunt paréntes eius. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Bernárdi Abbátis
Homilia 1 super Missus est, n. 7-8
Et erat súbditus illis. Quis, quibus? Deus homínibus; Deus, inquam, cui Angeli súbditi sunt, cui Principátus et Potestátes obédiunt, súbditus erat Maríæ, nec tantum Maríæ, sed étiam Ioseph propter Maríam. Miráre ergo utrúmlibet, et élige quid ámplius miréris, sive Fílii benigníssimam dignatiónem, sive Matris excellentíssimam dignitátem. Utrínque stupor, utrínque miráculum. Et quod Deus féminæ obtémperet, humílitas absque exémplo; et quod Deo fémina principétur, sublímitas sine sócio. In láudibus vírginum singuláriter cánitur quod sequúntur Agnum quocúmque íerit. Quibus ergo láudibus iúdicas dignam, quæ étiam præit?
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Vere tu es Rex abscónditus,
* Deus Israël Salvator.
V. Tu doces hóminem sciéntiam.
R. Deus Israël Salvator.

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 2:42-52
And when he was twelve years old, they going up into Jerusalem, according to the custom of the feast, And having fulfilled the days, when they returned, the child Jesus remained in Jerusalem; and his parents knew it not. And so on.

Homily of St. Bernard Abbot
Homilia super Missus est, n. 7-8
And he was subject unto them. Who was subject? And to whom? God to man! God, I repeat, to whom the Angels are subject, whom the Principalities and Powers do obey, was subject to Mary; and not only to Mary, but to Joseph also for Mary's sake. Marvel, therefore, both at God and man, and choose that which giveth greater wonder, whether it be the most loving condescension of the Son, or the exceeding great dignity of his Mother. Both amaze us, both are marvellous. That God should obey a woman is lowliness without parallel, that woman should rule over God, an elevation beyond comparison. In praise of virgins it is sung of them alone, that they follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. Of what praise do ye judge that woman to be worthy who is thus placed before the Lamb of God.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Verily, thou art a King that hidest thyself,
* O God of Israel, the Saviour.
V. Thou teachest man knowledge.
R. O God of Israel, the Saviour.
V. Iube, Dómine, benedícere.
Benedictio. Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum. Amen.

Disce, homo, obedíre; disce, terra, subdi; disce, pulvis, obtemperáre. De auctóre tuo loquens Evangelísta. Et erat, inquit, súbditus illis; haud dubium quin Maríæ et Ioseph. Erubésce, supérbe cinis! Deus se humíliat, et tu te exáltas? Deus se homínibus subdit, et tu, dominári géstiens homínibus, tuo te præpónis auctóri? Utinam mihi, aliquándo tale áliquid cogitánti, Deus respondére dignétur quod et suo increpándo respóndit Apóstolo: Vade, inquit, post me, sátana, quia non sapis ea quæ Dei sunt. Quóties enim homínibus præésse desídero, tóties Deum præíre conténdo; et tunc vere non sapio ea quæ Dei sunt. De ipso namque dictum est: Et erat súbditus illis. Si hóminis, o homo, imitári dedignáris exémplum, certe non erit tibi indígnum sequi auctórem tuum. Si non potes fórsitan sequi eum quocúmque íerit, dignáre vel sequi quo tibi condescéndit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Sicut per inobediéntiam uníus hóminis peccatóres constítui sunt multi:
* Ita et per uníus obeditiónem iusti constituéntur multi.
V. Venit Názareth et erat súbditus illis.
R. Ita et per uníus obeditiónem iusti constituéntur multi.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Ita et per uníus obeditiónem iusti constituéntur multi.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 8
Learn, O man, to obey! Learn, O earth, to be subject! Learn, O dust, to submit! The Evangelist speaking of thy Creator saith: And he was subject unto them. And there is no doubt that this sheweth us that God was subject to Mary and Joseph. Shame on you, ye proud entities of dust and ashes! God abaseth himself, and dost thou, O creature sprung from the earth, exalt thyself? God maketh himself subject to man, and dost thou, who art always so eager to lord it over men, set up thyself to lord it over thy Creator? For as often soever as I desire pre-eminency over men, so often do I strive to excel God. For of him it was said: And he was subject unto them. If thou disdainest, O man, to follow the example of man, at least thou canst follow thy Creator without dishonour. If thou canst not, perchance, follow him whithersoever he goeth, deign at least to follow him in this thing wherein he hath emptied himself, and made himself of no reputation, for the sake of such as thou.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. As by one man's disobedience many were made sinners,
* So by the obedience of one Man shall many be made righteous.
V. He came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them.
R. So by the obedience of one Man shall many be made righteous.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. So by the obedience of one Man shall many be made righteous.
V. Iube, Dómine, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Si non potes sublímen incédere sémitam virginitátis, séquere vel Deum per tutíssimam viam humilitátis; a cuius rectitúdine si qui étiam de virgínibus deviáverint, ut verum fátear, nec ipsi sequúntur Agnum quocúmque íerit. Séquitur quidem Agnum coinquinátus húmilis, séquitur et virgo supérbus, sed néuter quocúmque íerit: quia nec ille ascéndere potest ad mundítiam Agni, qui sine mácula est; nec is ad eiúsdem mansuetúdinem descéndere dignátur, qua scílicet non coram tondénte, sed coram occidénte se obmútuit. Attamen salubriórem elégit sequéndi partem in humilitáte peccátor, quam in virginitáte supérbus; cum et illíus immundítiam sua húmilis satisfáctio purget, et huius pudicítiam supérbia ínquinet.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

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
If thou canst not enter upon the lofty paths of virginity, at least follow God by the most safe road of humility. If any turn aside from this straight way, though they be virgins, they do not follow the Lamb, if the truth be told, whithersoever he goeth. The humble man, though stained with sin, followeth the Lamb; the virgin, though proud, also followeth; but neither of these twain followeth whithersoever he goeth. The former cannot attain unto the purity of the Lamb, for he is without spot; the latter deigneth not to descend to his meekness, who was dumb, not before the shearer, but before the murderer. Yet the sinner who followeth in humility hath chosen a more saving way than the proud man who followeth in virginity; for the humble one maketh satisfaction, and is cleansed of his impurity, but the proud one's chastity is stained by his pride.
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.
