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.

Hymnus {ex Proprio de Tempore}
Te, Joseph, célebrent ágmina cǽlitum,
Te cuncti résonent christíadum chori,
Qui clarus méritis, junctus est ínclitæ
Casto fœ́dere Vírgini.

Almo cum túmidam gérmine cónjugem
Admírans, dúbio tángeris ánxius,
Afflátu súperi Fláminis Angelus
Concéptum Púerum docet.

Tu natum Dóminum stringis, ad éxteras
Ægýpti prófugum tu séqueris plagas;
Amíssum Sólymis quæris, et ínvenis,
Miscens gáudia flétibus.

Post mortem réliquos sors pia cónsecrat,
Palmámque eméritos glória súscipit:
Tu vivens, Súperis par, frúeris Deo,
Mira sorte beátior.

Nobis, summa Trias, parce precántibus,
Da Joseph méritis sídera scándere:
Ut tandem líceat nos tibi pérpetim
Gratum prómere cánticum.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Proper of the season}
Let angels chant thy praise, pure spouse of purest bride,
While Christendom's sweet choirs the gladsome strains repeat,
To tell thy wondrous fame, to raise the pealing hymn,
Wherewith we all thy glory greet.

When doubts and bitter fears thy heavy heart oppressed,
And filled thy righteous soul with sorrow and dismay,
An angel quickly came, the wondrous secret told,
And drove thy anxious griefs away.

Thy arms thy new-born Lord, with tender joy embrace;
Him then to Egypt's land thy watchful care doth bring;
Him in the temple's courts once lost thou dost regain,
And 'mid thy tears dost greet thy King.

Not till death's pangs are o'er do others gain their crown,
But, Joseph, unto thee the blessed lot was given
While life did yet endure, thy God to see and know,
As do the saints above in heaven.

Grant us, great Trinity, for Joseph's holy sake,
In highest bliss and love, above the stars to reign,
That we in joy with him may praise our loving God,
And sing our glad eternal strain.
Amen.

Lesson from the book of Genesis
Gen 39:1-6
1 And Joseph was brought into Egypt, and Putiphar an eunuch of Pharao, chief captain of the army, an Egyptian, bought him of the Ismaelites, by whom he was brought.
2 And the Lord was with him, and he was a prosperous man in all things: and he dwelt in his master's house,
3 Who knew very well that the Lord was with him, and made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
4 And Joseph found favour in the sight of his master, and ministered to him: and being set over all by him, he governed the house committed to him, and all things that were delivered to him:
5 And the Lord blessed the house of the Egyptian for Joseph's sake, and multiplied all his substance, both at home, and in the fields.
6 Neither knew he any other thing, but the bread which he ate. And Joseph was of a beautiful countenance, and comely to behold.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

* And he answered them Go unto Joseph. Alleluia.

R. And he answered them Go unto Joseph. Alleluia.

40 Tu eris super domum meam, et ad tui oris impérium cunctus pópulus obédiet: uno tantum regni sólio te præcédam.
41 Dixítque rursus Phárao ad Joseph: Ecce, constítui te super univérsam terram Ægýpti.
42 Tulítque ánnulum de manu sua, et dedit eum in manu eius: vestivítque eum stola býssina, et collo torquem áuream circumpósuit.

40 Thou shalt be over my house, and at the commandment of thy mouth all the people shall obey: only in the kingly throne will I be above thee.
41 And again Pharao said to Joseph: Behold, I have appointed thee over the whole land of Egypt.
42 And he took his ring from his own hand, and gave it into his hand: and he put upon him a robe of silk, and put a chain of gold about his neck.
43 And he made him go up into his second chariot, the crier proclaiming that all should bow their knee before him, and that they should know he was made governor over the whole land of Egypt.

44 And the king said to Joseph: I am Pharao; without thy commandment no man shall move hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.
45 And he turned his name, and called him in the Egyptian tongue, The saviour of the world. And he gave him to wife Aseneth the daughter of Putiphare priest of Heliopolis. Then Joseph went out to the land of Egypt:
46 (Now he was thirty years old when he stood before king Pharao) and he went round all the countries of Egypt.
47 And the fruitfulness of the seven years came: and the corn being bound up into sheaves was gathered together into the barns of Egypt.
48 And all the abundance of grain was laid up in every city.
49 And there was so great abundance of wheat, that it was equal to the sand of the sea, and the plenty exceeded measure.

Sermo sancti Bernardini Senensis
Sermo 1 de S. Joseph
Omnium singularium gratiarum alicui rationabili creaturæ communicatarum generalis regula est, quod, quandocumque divina gratia eligit aliquem ad aliquam gratiam singularem, seu ad aliquem sublimem statum, omnia charismata donet, quæ illi personæ sic electæ, et ejus officio necessaria sunt, atque illam copiose decorant. Quod maxime verificatum est in sancto Joseph, putativo patre Domini nostri Jesu Christi, et vero sponso Reginæ mundi et Dominæ Angelorum, qui ab æterno Patre electus est fidelis nutritius, atque custos principalium thesaurorum suorum, scilicet Filii ejus et sponsæ suæ: quod officium fidelissime prosecutus est. Cui propterea Dominus ait: Serve bone et fidelis, intra in gaudium Domini tui.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Dedisti mihi protectionem salutis tuæ, et dextera tua suscepit me:
* Protector meus, et cornu salutis meæ, et susceptor meus, allelúja.
V. Ego protector tuus sum, et merces tua magna nimis.
R. Protector meus, et cornu salutis meæ, et susceptor meus, allelúja.

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. Bernardine of Siena.
1st of St. Joseph.)
When any special favours are conferred upon a reasonable being, it is the common rule that whenever the grace of God electeth such and such an one for such and such a grace, or for such and such an high post of duty, the person so elected receiveth all the gifts of grace which be needful for him in that state of life whereunto he is called, and receiveth them abundantly. Of this there is an excellent instance in the case of the holy Joseph, the socalled father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the real husband of her, who is Queen of the world, and Lady of Angels. He had been elected by the Eternal Father to be the faithful nurse and warder of His two chief treasures, that is, His Son, and Joseph's own Wife. This duty Joseph faithfully discharged, and consequently the Lord hath said to him: Well done, thou good and faithful servant enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. Matth. xxv. 21.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Thou hast given me the shield of thy salvation, and thy right hand hath holden me up.
* My buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my refuge. Alleluia.
V. I am thy shield and thy exceeding great reward.
R. My buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my refuge. Alleluia.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Lectio 5
Si compares eum ad totam Ecclesiam Christi, nonne iste est homo electus et specialis, per quem et sub quo Christus est ordinate et honeste introductus in mundum? Si ergo Virgini Matri tota Ecclesia sancta debitrix est, quia per eam Christum suscipere digna facta est: sic profecto post eam huic debet gratiam et reverentiam singularem. Ipse enim est clavis veteris testamenti, in qua patriarchalis et prophetalis dignitas promissum consequitur fructum. Porro hic est solus, qui corporaliter possedit, quod eis divina dignatio repromisit. Merito igitur figuratur per illum patriarcham Joseph, qui populis frumenta servavit. Sed et hic illum præcellit, quia non solum Aegyptiis panem corporalis vitæ, sed omnibus electis panem de cælo, qui cælestem vitam tribuit, cum multa solertia enutrivit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Statuet filios suos sub tegmine illius, et sub ramis ejus morabitur: protegetur sub tegmine illius a fervore:
* Et in gloria ejus requiescet, allelúja.

Reading 5
This man Joseph, if we compare him with the Universal Church of Christ, is he not that elect and chosen one, through whom, and under whom, Christ is orderly and honestly brought into the world? If, then, the Holy Universal Church be under a debt to the Virgin Mother, because it is through her that she hath been made to receive Christ, next to Mary she oweth love and worship to Joseph. Joseph is the key of the (Church of the Saints) which were under the Old Testament, in whose person the noble structure of Patriarchs and Prophets reacheth her completion and realiseth her promises. He is the only one of them who actually enjoyed in full fruition what God had been pleased to promise before to them. It is, therefore, with good reason that we see a type of him in that Patriarch Joseph who stored up corn for the people. But the second Joseph hath a more excellent dignity than the first, seeing that the first only gave to the Egyptians bread for the body, but the second was the watchful guardian for all the elect of that Living Bread Which came down from heaven, of Which whosoever eateth will never die.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. He shall set his children under her shelter, and shall lodge under her branches by her shall he be covered from heat,
* And in her glory shall he dwell. Alleluia.
V. Trust in Him, ye congregation of the people, pour out your heart before Him.
R. And in her glory shall he dwell. Alleluia.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ignem sui amóris accéndat Deus in córdibus nostris. Amen.

Lectio 6
Profecto dubitandum non est, quod Christus familiaritatem, reverentiam, atque sublimissimam dignitatem, quam illi exhibuit, dum ageret in humanis, tamquam filius patri suo, in cælis utique non negavit, quin potius complevit et consummavit. Unde non immerito in verbo proposito a Domino subinfertur: Intra in gaudium Domini tui. Unde, licet gaudium æternæ beatitudinis in cor hominis intret, maluit tamen Dominus ei dicere: Intra in gaudium: ut mystice innuatur, quod gaudium illud non solum in eo sit intra, sed undique illum circumdans et absorbens, et ipsum velut abyssus infinita submergens. Memento igitur nostri, beate Joseph, et tuæ orationis suffragio apud tuum putativum Filium intercede: sed et beatissimam Virginem sponsam tuam nobis propitiam redde, quæ Mater est ejus, qui cum Patre et Spiritu Sancto vivit et regnat per infinita sæcula sæculorum. Amen.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Si consistant adversum me castra, non timebit cor meum:
* Si exsurgat adversum me prælium, in hoc ego sperabo, allelúja.
V. In te cantatio mea semper, quoniam tu adjutor fortis.
R. Si exsurgat adversum me prælium, in hoc ego sperabo, allelúja.

Reading 6
There can be no doubt that Christ still treateth Joseph in heaven with that familiarity, honour, and most high condescension which He paid him, like a Son to a father, while He walked among men; nay, rather, that He hath now crowned and completed those habits. We may very reasonably suspect that it was with a peculiar meaning that Christ said (to him) Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. The joy of being blessed for ever entereth into the heart of man, but when the Lord said (to Joseph), Enter thou into joy, He probably meant mystically to bid him realise a joy which should not be within him only, but outside him also, above him, and below him, and all round about him, and overflowing him as it were a great bottomless pit of joy to swallow him up altogether. Therefore, O thou blessed Joseph! remember us! In thy helpful prayers, make intercession for us with Him Who vouchsafed to be supposed thy Son! Likewise, obtain some pity for us from that most blessed Maiden who was thy wife, and the Mother of Him, Who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth, one God, world without end. Amen.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear.
* Though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. Alleluia.
V. My praise shall be continually of thee, for Thou art my strong refuge.
R.* Though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. Alleluia.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. Alleluia.

Homilía sancti Augustíni Epíscopi
Liber 2 de Consensu Evang.
Manifestum est illud quod ait: Ut putabatur filius Joseph: propter illos dixisse, qui eum ex Joseph, sicut alii homines nascuntur, natum arbitrantur. Quos autem movet quod alios progenitores Matthæus enumerat, descendens a David usque ad Joseph, alios autem Lucas ascendens a Joseph usque ad David, facile est ut advertant, duos patres habere potuisse Joseph: unum a quo genitus, alterum a quo fuerit adoptatus. Antiqua est enim consuetudo adoptandi étiam in illo populo Dei, ut sibi filios facerent, quos non ipsi genuissent. Unde intelligitur Lucas patrem Joseph, non a quo genitus, sed a quo fuerat adoptatus, suscepisse in Evangelio suo cujus progenitores sursum versus commemorat, donec exiret ad David.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

R. Et vocabis nomen ejus Jesum, allelúja

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.

Reading 7
From the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 3:21
At that time: When all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized and praying, the heaven was opened. And so on.

Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
Book ii., on the Harmony of the Evangelists.
And Jesus Himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the Son of Joseph. These words, as was supposed, were evidently here written for the correction of such as might think that the Lord was the Son of Joseph, in the same sense as other men are called the children of their fathers. Those who find any trouble in the fact that the ancestors reckoned downward by Matthew from David to Joseph, are other than those reckoned upward by Luke from Joseph to David, such, I say, as are troubled by this, may get over it by supposing that Joseph had two fathers; one, that is, who begat him, and another who adopted him. The custom of adopting children, whereby those who have none of their own surround themselves with a family, is very ancient, even among the people of God. Hence, Luke is understood to have included in his Gospel, under the name of father of Joseph, that, not of the father by whom he was begotten, but of him by whom he was adopted, and it is the ancestors of this adoptive father who are reckoned up as far as David.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Joseph, thou Son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife; for That Which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost and she shall bring forth a Son;
* And thou shalt call His Name Jesus. Alleluia.
V. For He shall save His people from their sins.
R. And thou shalt call His Name Jesus. Alleluia.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Cum enim necesse sit, utroque Evangelista vera narrante, et Matthæo scilicet et Luca, ut unus eorum ejus patris originem teneret, qui genuerat; alter ejus qui adoptaverat Joseph: quem probabilius intelligimus adoptantis originem tenuisse quam eum, qui noluit Joseph genitum dicere ab illo cujus eum filium esse narrabat? Matthæus autem dicens: Abraham genuit Isaac, Isaac genuit Jacob, atque ita in hoc verbo, quod est, genuit, perseverans, donec in ultimo diceret, Jacob autem genuit Joseph, satis expressit ad eum patrem se perduxisse originem generantium, a quo Joseph non adoptatus, sed genitus erat.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Surge, et accipe puerum et matrem ejus, et fuge in Aegyptum:
* Et esto ibi usque dum dicam tibi, allelúja.
V. Ut adimpleretur quod dictum est a Domino per Prophetam dicentem: Ex Aegypto vocavi filium meum.
R. Et esto ibi usque dum dicam tibi, allelúja.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et esto ibi usque dum dicam tibi, allelúja.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 8
Thus since we are behoven to believe that what each of the Evangelists said was true, Matthew as well as Luke; and therefore that one of them nameth the father who begat, and the other, the father who adopted, Joseph; we naturally suppose that the Evangelist, who nameth the adoptive father, was he who abstaineth from using the term beget.Matthew beginneth i. 2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob, and so on, always with the use of this word begat, till he cometh to: and Jacob begat Joseph. By the word which he useth he doth sufficiently indicate that the genealogy which he is giving is that of him who begat.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Arise, and take the young Child, and His Mother, and flee into Egypt;
* And be thou there until I bring thee word. Alleluia.
V. That it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the Prophets, saying Out of Egypt have I called My Son.
R. And be thou there until I bring thee word. Alleluia.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And be thou there until I bring thee word. Alleluia.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Quamquam si étiam Lucas genitum diceret Joseph ab Heli, nec sic nos hoc verbum perturbare deberet, ut aliud crederemus, quam ab uno Evangelista gignentem, ab altero adoptantem patrem fuisse commemoratum. Neque enim absurde quisque dicitur non carne, sed caritate genuisse quem filium sibi adoptaverit At vero étiam nos quibus dedit Deus potestatem filios ejus fieri, de natura atque substantia sua non nos genuit, sicut unicum Filium, sed utique dilectione adoptavit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

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
Luke saith Joseph was the son of Heli, not Joseph was begotten of Heli; but even if he had said the latter, it would not have troubled this interpretation of ours, that one Evangelist nameth the natural, and the other the adoptive father of Joseph. It is not an outrageous thing to say that one who adopteth another hath begotten him, albeit he hath done it, not carnally, but by love. Even so hath God given to us the power to become His sons, albeit He hath not begotten us of His Own Nature and Substance, as He hath His Only - Begotten Son, but only reckoneth us, in His love, among His children.
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.
