Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.

Et in Jesum Christum, Fílium ejus únicum, Dóminum nostrum: qui concéptus est de Spíritu Sancto, natus ex María Vírgine, passus sub Póntio Piláto, crucifíxus, mórtuus, et sepúltus: descéndit ad ínferos; tértia die resurréxit a mórtuis; ascéndit ad cælos; sedet ad déxteram Dei Patris omnipoténtis: inde ventúrus est judicáre vivos et mórtuos.
Credo in Spíritum Sanctum, sanctam Ecclésiam cathólicam, Sanctórum communiónem, remissiónem peccatórum, carnis resurrectiónem, vitam ætérnam. Amen.

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.

Ant. The Lord, the King of Martyrs, * O come, let us worship.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Martyrs, * O come, let us worship.
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 of Martyrs, * O come, let us worship.
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 worship.
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 of Martyrs, * O come, let us worship.
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 worship.
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 of Martyrs, * O come, let us worship.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Christo profúsum sánguinem,
Et Mártyrum victórias,
Dignámque cælo láuream
Lætis sequámur vócibus.

Terróre victo sǽculi,
Pœnísque spretis córporis,
Mortis sacræ compéndio
Vitam beátam póssident.

Tradúntur igni Mártyres,
Et bestiárum déntibus;
Armáta sævit úngulis
Tortóris insáni manus.

Nudáta pendent víscera,
Sanguis sacrátus fúnditur;
Sed pérmanent immóbiles,
Vitæ perénnis grátia.

Te nunc, Redémptor, quǽsumus,
Ut mártyrum consórtio
Jungas precántes sérvulos
In sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
The martyrs' triumphs let us sing,
Their blood poured forth for Christ the King,
And while due hymns of praise we pay,
Our thankful hearts cast grief away.

The world its terrors urged in vain;
They recked not of the body's pain;
One step, and holy death made sure
The life that ever shall endure.

To flames the martyr saints are hailed;
By teeth of savage beasts assailed;
Against them, armed with ruthless brand
And hooks of steel, their torturers stand.

The mangled frame is tortured sore,
The holy life-drops freshly pour;
They stand unmoved amidst the strife,
By grace of everlasting life.

Redeemer, hear us of thy love,
That, with the martyr host above,
Hereafter, of thine endless grace,
thy servants also may have place.
Amen.

Psalmus 1 [1]
1:1 Beátus vir, qui non ábiit in consílio impiórum, et in via peccatórum non stetit, * et in cáthedra pestiléntiæ non sedit:
1:2 Sed in lege Dómini volúntas ejus, * et in lege ejus meditábitur die ac nocte.
1:3 Et erit tamquam lignum, quod plantátum est secus decúrsus aquárum, * quod fructum suum dabit in témpore suo:
1:3 Et fólium ejus non défluet: * et ómnia quæcúmque fáciet, prosperabúntur.
1:4 Non sic ímpii, non sic: * sed tamquam pulvis, quem proícit ventus a fácie terræ.
1:5 Ídeo non resúrgent ímpii in judício: * neque peccatóres in concílio justórum.
1:6 Quóniam novit Dóminus viam justórum: * et iter impiórum períbit.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. By the rivers of water
Psalm 1 [1]
1:1 Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, * nor sat in the chair of pestilence.

1:3 And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the running waters, * which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season.
1:3 And his leaf shall not fall off: * and all whatsoever he shall do shall prosper.
1:4 Not so the wicked, not so: * but like the dust, which the wind driveth from the face of the earth.

1:6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the just: * and the way of the wicked shall perish.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Ant. As gold in the furnace
Psalm 2 [2]
2:1 Why have the Gentiles raged, * and the people devised vain things?
2:2 The kings of the earth stood up, and the princes met together, * against the Lord and against his Christ.
2:3 Let us break their bonds asunder: * and let us cast away their yoke from us.
2:4 He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh at them: * and the Lord shall deride them.
2:5 Then shall he speak to them in his anger, * and trouble them in his rage.
2:6 But I am appointed king by him over Sion his holy mountain, * preaching his commandment.
2:7 The Lord hath said to me: * Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee.
2:8 Ask of me, and I will give thee the Gentiles for thy inheritance, * and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession.
2:9 Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, * and shalt break them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
2:10 And now, O ye kings, understand: * receive instruction, you that judge the earth.

De Epístola beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Romános.
Rom 8:12-19
12 Fratres: Debitóres sumus non carni, ut secúndum carnem vivámus.
13 Si enim secúndum carnem vixéritis, moriémini: si autem spíritu facta carnis mortificavéritis, vivétis.
14 Quicúmque enim spíritu Dei agúntur, ii sunt fílii Dei.
15 Non enim accepístis spíritum servitútis íterum in timóre, sed accepístis spíritum adoptiónis filiórum, in quo clamámus: Abba (Pater).
16 Ipse enim Spíritus testimónium reddit spirítui nostro quod sumus fílii Dei.
17 Si autem fílii, et herédes: herédes, quidem Dei, coherédes autem Christi: si tamen compátimur ut et conglorificémur.
18 Exístimo enim quod non sunt condígnæ passiónes hujus témporis ad futúram glóriam, quæ revelábitur in nobis.
19 Nam exspectátio creatúræ revelatiónem filiórum Dei exspéctat.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Abstérget Deus omnem lácrimam ab óculis Sanctórum: et jam non erit ámplius neque luctus, neque clamor, sed nec ullus dolor:
* Quóniam prióra transiérunt.
V. Non esúrient, neque sítient ámplius, neque cadet super illos sol, neque ullus æstus.
R. Quóniam prióra transiérunt.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Eternal Father bless us with an eternal blessing. Amen.

Reading 1
Lesson from the letter of St Paul the Apostle to the Romans
Rom 8:12-19
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.
13 For if you live according to the flesh, you shall die: but if by the Spirit you mortify the deeds of the flesh, you shall live.
14 For whosoever are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For you have not received the spirit of bondage again in fear; but you have received the spirit of adoption of sons, whereby we cry: Abba, Father.
16 For the Spirit himself giveth testimony to our spirit, that we are the sons of God.
17 And if sons, heirs also; heirs indeed of God, and joint heirs with Christ: yet so, if we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this time are not worthy to be compared with the glory to come, that shall be revealed in us.
19 For the expectation of the creature waiteth for the revelation of the sons of God
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. God shall wipe away all tears from the eyes of His Saints, and there shall be no more sorrow, there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain;
* For the former things are passed away.
V. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more, neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
R. For the former things are passed away.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adjuváre dignétur. Amen.

Rom 8:28-34
28 Scimus autem quóniam diligéntibus Deum ómnia cooperántur in bonum iis qui secúndum propósitum vocáti sunt sancti.
29 Nam quos præscívit et prædestinávit confórmes fíeri imáginis Fílii sui ut sit ipse primogénitus in multis frátribus.
30 Quos autem prædestinávit, hos et vocávit: et quos vocávit, hos et justificávit: quos autem justificávit, illos et glorificávit.
31 Quid ergo dicémus ad hæc? Si Deus pro nobis, quis contra nos?
32 Qui étiam próprio Fílio suo non pepércit, sed pro nobis ómnibus trádidit illum, quómodo non étiam cum illo ómnia nobis donávit?
33 Quis accusábit advérsus eléctos Dei? Deus qui justíficat,
34 Quis est qui condémnet? Christus Iesus, qui mórtuus est, immo qui et resurréxit, qui est ad déxteram Dei, qui étiam interpéllat pro nobis.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Viri sancti gloriósum sánguinem fudérunt pro Dómino, amavérunt Christum in vita sua, imitáti sunt eum in morte sua:
* Et ídeo corónas triumpháles meruérunt.
V. Unus spíritus, et una fides erat in eis.
R. Et ídeo corónas triumpháles meruérunt.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Son, the Sole-begotten, mercifully bless and keep us. Amen.

Reading 2
Rom 8:28-34
28 And we know that to them that love God, all things work together unto good, to such as, according to his purpose, are called to be saints.
29 For whom he foreknew, he also predestinated to be made conformable to the image of his Son; that he might be the firstborn amongst many brethren.
30 And whom he predestinated, them he also called. And whom he called, them he also justified. And whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who is against us?
32 He that spared not even his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how hath he not also, with him, given us all things?
33 Who shall accuse against the elect of God? God that justifieth.
34 Who is he that shall condemn? Christ Jesus that died, yea that is risen also again; who is at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. These men are holy, who have gloriously shed their blood for the Lord's sake, yea, who loved Christ in their lives, and were made like unto Him in their flesh,
* And therefore they have earned crowns of victory.
V. One spirit, and one faith was in them.
R. And therefore they have earned crowns of victory.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Spíritus Sancti grátia illúminet sensus et corda nostra. Amen.

Rom 8:35-39
35 Quis ergo nos separábit a caritáte Christi? tribulátio? an angústia? an fames? an núditas? an perículum? an persecútio? an gládius?
36 (sicut scriptum est: Quia propter te mortificámur tota die: æstimáti sumus sicut oves occisiónis.)
37 Sed in his ómnibus superámus propter eum qui diléxit nos.
38 Certus sum enim quia neque mors, neque vita, neque Ángeli, neque Principátus, neque Virtútes, neque instántia, neque futúra, neque fortitúdo,
39 Neque altitúdo, neque profúndum, neque creatúra ália póterit nos separáre a caritáte Dei, quæ est in Christo Jesu Dómino nostro.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Tradidérunt córpora sua propter Deum ad supplícia:
* Et meruérunt habére corónas perpétuas.
V. Isti sunt qui venérunt ex magna tribulatióne, et lavérunt stolas suas in sánguine Agni.
R. Et meruérunt habére corónas perpétuas.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et meruérunt habére corónas perpétuas.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the grace of the Holy Spirit enlighten all our hearts and minds. Amen.

Reading 3
Rom 8:35-39
35 Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation? or distress? or famine? or nakedness? or danger? or persecution? or the sword?
36 As it is written: For thy sake we are put to death all the day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 But in all these things we overcome, because of him that hath loved us.
38 For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. They gave their bodies for God’s sake to death
* And gained the everlasting crown.
V. These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb.
R. And gained the everlasting crown.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And gained the everlasting crown.

Cyríacus diaconus, cum Sisinio, Largo et Smaragdo diutius inclusus in carcere, multa édidit miracula, in quibus Arthémiam Diocletiáni filiam precibus a dæmone liberávit; missusque ad Saporem Persárum regem, Jobíam étiam ejus filiam a nefario spíritu erípuit. Rege vero ejus patre cum quadringentis ac trigínta aliis baptizatis, Romam rediit; ubi, Maximiáni imperatóris jussu comprehénsus, catenis vinctus ante rhedam suam tráhitur; et post dies quatuor e carcere edúctus, pice liquáta perfusus et in catasta exténsus, demum cum Largo et Smaragdo aliisque viginti secúri percússus est via Salaria, ad hortos Sallustiános. Quorum córpora in eádem via décimo septimo Kalendas Aprilis sepúlta a Joánne presbytero, póstea sexto Idus Augusti a Marcello Pontifice et Lucina nobili femina lineis velis involuta et pretiósis unguentis condíta, in ipsíus Lucinæ prædium via Ostiénsi, septimo ab Urbe lápide transláta sunt.

Reading 4
Cyriacus the Deacon was long kept in prison with Sisinius, Largus, and Smaragdus, and wrought many wonderful works. Among other things he by his prayers freed from a devil Arthemia, a daughter of Diocletian, and, being sent to Sapor, King of the Persians, also delivered his daughter Jobia from a foul spirit. He baptized the king, her father, and four hundred and thirty others, and afterwards returned to Rome. He was arrested by command of the Emperor Maximian, and dragged in chains before his chariot. Then after four days he was brought forth from prison, had boiling pitch poured upon him, was stretched on a block, (and belaboured with a cudgel,) and at last was slain with the axe, along with Largus, Smaragdus, and twenty others, at the gardens of Sallust, on the Salarian Way. On this Way were their bodies buried by John the Priest, on the 16th day of March, in the year of our Lord 303, but afterwards, on the 8th of August, Pope Marcellus and the noble lady Lucina took them and wrapped them in linen, and embalmed them with costly ointments, and carried them to the farm belonging to the said lady Lucina, at the seventh milestone from Rome on the road to Ostia.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. thy Saints, O Lord, have passed a wonderful way, serving thy commandments, that they might be found without hurt in the midst of the mighty waters.
* Dry land appeared, and, out of the Red Sea, a way without impediment.

From the Sermon of S. John Chrysostom
Serm. 1. de Mart, tom. 3.
Every man knoweth how, by the good Providence of God, the divers glories of His Martyrs are held in such esteem by His people, that the same His Saints in all places receive worthy honour, and before us is set, by the favour of Christ, the noble example of their courage: thus are we stirred up to consider, on the occasion of these Holidays, how great glory doth abide them in heaven, whose birthdays are thus kept upon earth: thereby, also, we are roused to strive to be like them, brave, godly, and true: so that, in the strength of Christ, we, like them, may wrestle with, and conquer our enemy, and, when we have gained the same victory that they gained, may with them at last be glorified in the kingdom of heaven.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Saints of God shrank not from the stripes of the executioners, but died for Christ's Name's sake
* That they might be made joint-heirs in the house of the Lord.

Quis est enim, qui eórum volens mérito copulari, nisi prius constantiam eórum teneat, sectétur fidem, imitemur virtútem passiónis; eórum glóriam paribus vitæ lineamentis aut invéniat aut exquirat? Qui, etsi martyrio par esse non possit, tamen muneris tanti dignitate se quisque bonis actibus dignum præbeat. Adest enim clementíssimus Deus, qui desiderántibus suis aut martyrium præbeat, aut, sine martyrio, cum Sanctis præmia divina retríbuat.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Reading 6
For what man is there willing to share their reward, that if he do not first lay hold on their steadfastness, follow after the example of their faith, and imitate their brave patience, can either seek or find their glory by likeness to their lives? But whosoever doth so follow them, let him not doubt but that, though in very deed he gain not the crown of martyrdom, he is yet able by good works to make himself meet therefor. For we have a most merciful God, Which either giveth Martyrdom unto such as be willing, or, without Martyrdom, doth make them joint heirs with the Saints in the kingdom of God.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. As gold in the furnace hath the Lord tried His chosen ones, and received them as a burnt-offering, and yet a while, and they shall be regarded;
* For the grace of God, and His peace, are with His chosen.
V. They that put their trust in Him shall understand the truth and such as be faithful in love shall abide with Him.

Lectio 7
Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Marcum
Marc 16:15-18
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Euntes in mundum univérsum prædicate Evangélium omni creaturæ. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Gregórii Papæ
Homilia 29 in Evangelia, post initium
Potest omnis creaturæ nómine omnis natio Géntium designari. Ante enim dictum fuerat: In viam Géntium ne abieritis; nunc autem dícitur: Prædicate omni creaturæ: ut scilicet prius a Judǽa Apostolórum repulsa prædicátio tunc nobis in adjutórium fieret, cum hanc illa ad damnatiónis suæ testimónium superba repulísset. Sed cum discipulos ad prædicándum Véritas mittit, quid aliud in mundo facit, nisi grana séminis spargit? Et pauca grana mittit in semine, ut multárum messium fruges recipiat ex nostra fide.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Propter testaméntum Dómini, et leges patérnas, Sancti Dei perstitérunt in amóre fraternitátis:
* Quia unus fuit semper spíritus in eis, et una fides.
V. Ecce quam bonum et quam jucúndum habitáre fratres in unum.
R. Quia unus fuit semper spíritus in eis, et una fides.

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 Mark
Mark 16:15-18
At that time, Jesus said unto His disciples: Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. And so on.

Homily by Pope St. Gregory the Great.
29th on the Gospels.
By the words "every creature" we may understand every tribe of the Gentiles. Of aforetime it had been said, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, Matth. x. 5, but now, Preach the Gospel to every creature, that, since the Jews had proudly rejected the preaching of the Apostles, that might become our gain which was the seal of their condemnation. But when the Eternal Truth sendeth forth His disciples to preach, what doth He but scatter seed over the field of the world He scattered abroad a few grains for seed, that He may afterward reap an abundant harvest in our faith.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Because of the covenant of the Lord, and the laws of their fathers, the Saints of God abode in brotherly love,
* For one spirit and one faith was ever in them.
V. Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.
R. For one spirit and one faith was ever in them.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Quorum festum cólimus, ipsi intercédant pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Neque étenim in universo mundo tanta fidelium messis exsúrgeret, si de manu Dómini super rationalem terram illa electa grana prædicántium non venissent. Sequitur: Qui crediderit et baptizátus fúerit, salvus erit: qui vero non credíderit, condemnábitur. Fortasse unusquísque apud semetípsum dicat: Ego jam credidi, salvus ero. Verum dicit, si fidem opéribus tenet. Vera étenim fides est, quæ in hoc, quod verbis dicit, móribus non contradicit. Hinc est enim quod de quibusdam falsis fidelibus Paulus dicit: Qui confiténtur se nosse Deum, factis autem negant.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Sancti mei, qui in carne pósiti, certámen habuístis:
* Mercédem labóris ego reddam vobis.
V. Veníte benedícti Patris mei, percípite regnum.
R. Mercédem labóris ego reddam vobis.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Mercédem labóris ego reddam vobis.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. They whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocates with God. Amen

Reading 8
The great harvest of faithful souls throughout the whole world would never have sprung up, if the hand of the Lord had not first scattered those chosen grains of preachers over the reasonable soil of men's minds. Then is written, He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved but he that believeth not shall be damned. Now, perchance, thou sayest in thine heart I believe, and therefore I shall be saved. True, if to thy faith thou dost add works. He only hath a living faith whose life doth not give the lie to his profession. It is of this that Paul speaketh, where he saith of certain vain believers, They profess that they know God but in works they deny Him. Tit. i. 16.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O ye My Saints, who, being in the flesh, didst have striving
* I will render unto you a reward of your labours.
V. Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom
R. I will render unto you a reward of your labours.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. I will render unto you a reward of your labours.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Signa autem eos qui credituri sunt, hæc sequéntur: In nómine meo dæmónia ejícient, linguis loquéntur novis, serpéntes tollent: et si mortíferum quid bíberint, non eis nocébit: super ægros manus impónent, et bene habébunt. Numquidnam, fratres mei, quia ista signa non fácitis, minime creditis? Sed hæc necessaria in exordio Ecclésiæ fuérunt. Ut enim ad fidem crésceret multitúdo credéntium, miraculis fuerat nutriénda: quia et nos, cum arbústa plantamus, tamdiu eis aquam infúndimus, quoúsque ea in terra jam coaluisse videámus: et si semel radícem fíxerint, irrigátio cessabit. Hinc est enim quod Paulus dicit: Linguæ in signum sunt non fidelibus, sed infidelibus.
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 gloriósus * Apostolórum chorus,
Te Prophetárum * laudábilis númerus,
Te Mártyrum candidátus * laudat exércitus.
Te per orbem terrárum * sancta confitétur Ecclésia,
Patrem * imménsæ majestátis;
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 uterum.

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
And these signs shall follow them that believe In My name they shall cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongues, they shall take up serpents and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. My brethren, these signs do not follow us. Do we, then, not believe Nay. The truth is, these things were needful when the Church was young. That she might grow by the increase of the faithful, she needed to be nourished with miracles. So we, when we plant a young tree, continually water and tend it, till we see that it hath taken firm root in the earth but when once it hath taken firm root, it can grow of itself. Hence Paul saith of tongues: Tongues are for a sign not to them that believe, but to them that believe not. Cor. xiv. 22.
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.
