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.

Ant. Christ's blessed Martyr Lawrence is crowned and triumphing in heaven. * O come, let us worship the Lord!

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. Christ's blessed Martyr Lawrence is crowned and triumphing in heaven. * O come, let us worship the Lord!

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 Commune aut Festo}
Deus tuórum mílitum
Sors, et córona, prǽmium,
Laudes canéntes Mártyris
Absólve nexu críminis.

Hic nempe mundi gáudia,
Et blanda fraudum pábula
Imbúta felle députans,
Pervénit ad cæléstia.

Pœnas cucúrrit fórtiter,
Et sústulit viríliter,
Fundénsque pro te sánguinem,
Ætérna dona póssidet.

Ob hoc precátu súpplici
Te póscimus, piíssime;
In hoc triúmpho Mártyris
Dimítte noxam sérvulis.

* Laus et perénnis glória
Patri sit, atque Fílio,
Sancto simul Paráclito,
In sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
O God, of those that fought thy fight,
Portion, and prize, and crown of light,
Break every bond of sin and shame
As now we praise thy martyr's name.

He recked not of the world's allure,
But sin and pomp of sin forswore:
Knew all their gall, and passed them by,
And reached the throne prepared on high.

Bravely the course of pain he ran,
And bare his torments as a man:
For love of thee his blood outpoured,
And thus obtained the great reward.

With humble voice and suppliant word
We pray thee therefore, holy Lord,
While we thy martyr's feast-day keep,
Forgive thy loved and erring sheep.

* Glory and praise for aye be done
To God the Father, and the Son,
And Holy Ghost, who reign on high,
One God, to all eternity.
Amen.

De libro Ecclesiástæ
Eccl 7:1-3
1 Quid necésse est hómini majóra se quǽrere, cum ignóret quid condúcat sibi in vita sua, número diérum peregrinatiónis suæ et témpore quod velut umbra prǽterit? Aut quis ei póterit indicáre quid post eum futúrum sub sole sit?
2 Mélius est nomen bonum quam unguénta pretiósa, et dies mortis die nativitátis.
3 Mélius est ire ad domum luctus quam ad domum convívii; in illa enim finis cunctórum admonétur hóminum, et vivens cógitat quid futúrum sit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Dómine, Pater et Deus vitæ meæ, ne derelínquas me in cogitátu malígno: extolléntiam oculórum meórum ne déderis mihi, et desidérium malígnum avérte a me, Dómine; aufer a me concupiscéntiam,
* Et ánimo irreverénti et infrúnito ne tradas me, Dómine.
V. Ne derelínquas me, Dómine, ne accréscant ignorántiæ meæ, nec multiplicéntur delícta mea.
R. Et ánimo irreverénti et infrúnito ne tradas me, Dómine.

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

Lesson from the book of Ecclesiastes
Eccl 7:1-3
1 What needeth a man to seek things that are above him, whereas he knoweth not what is profitable for him in his life, in all the days of his pilgrimage, and the time that passeth like a shadow? Or who can tell him what shall be after him under the sun?
2 A good name is better than precious ointments: and the day of death than the day of one's birth.
3 It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to the house of feasting: for in that we are put in mind of the end of all, and the living thinketh what is to come.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O Lord, Father and God of my life, leave me not to evil counsels; give me not a proud look, but turn away from me an haughty mind, O Lord turn away from me concupiscence,
* And give me not over unto an impudent and froward mind, O Lord!
V. Leave me not, O Lord, lest mine ignorance increase, and my sins abound.
R. And give me not over unto an impudent and froward mind, O Lord.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adjuváre dignétur. Amen.

Eccl 7:4-9
4 Mélior est ira risu, quia per tristítiam vultus corrígitur ánimus delinquéntis.
5 Cor sapiéntium ubi tristítia est, et cor stultórum ubi lætítia.
6 Mélius est a sapiénte córripi, quam stultórum adulatióne décipi;
7 Quia sicut sónitus spinárum ardéntium sub olla, sic risus stulti; sed et hoc vánitas.
8 Calúmnia contúrbat sapiéntem et perdet robur cordis illíus.
9 Mélior est finis oratiónis quam princípium, mélior est pátiens arrogánte.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Magna enim sunt judícia tua, Dómine, et inenarrabília verba tua:
* Magnificásti pópulum tuum et honorásti.
V. Transtulísti illos per Mare Rubrum et transvexísti eos per aquam nímiam.
R. Magnificásti pópulum tuum et honorásti.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Son, the Sole-begotten, mercifully bless and keep us. Amen.

Reading 2
Eccl 7:4-9
4 Anger is better than laughter: because by the sadness of the countenance the mind of the offender is corrected.
5 The heart of the wise is where there is mourning, and the heart of fools where there is mirth.
6 It is better to be rebuked by a wise man, than to be deceived by the flattery of fools.
7 For as the crackling of thorns burning under a pot, so is the laughter of a fool: now this also is vanity.
8 Oppression troubleth the wise, and shall destroy the strength of his heart.
9 Better is the end of a speech than the beginning. Better is the patient man than the presumptuous.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Great are thy judgments, O Lord, and thy words cannot be expressed.
* Thou didst make thy people mighty and honourable.
V. Thou broughtest them through the Red Sea, and leddest them through much water.
R. Thou didst make thy people mighty and honourable.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Spíritus Sancti grátia illúminet sensus et corda nostra. Amen.

Lectio 3
Eccl 7:11-14
11 Ne dicas: Quid putas causæ est quod prióra témpora melióra fuére quam nunc sunt? stulta enim est hujuscémodi interrogátio.
12 Utílior est sapiéntia cum divítiis et magis prodest vidéntibus solem.
13 Sicut enim prótegit sapiéntia, sic prótegit pecúnia; hoc autem plus habet erudítio et sapiéntia, quod vitam tríbuunt possessóri suo.
14 Consídera ópera Dei, quod nemo possit corrígere quem ille despéxerit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Quæ sunt in corde hóminum, óculi tui vident, Dómine, et in libro tuo ómnia scribéntur:
* Homo videt in facie, Deus autem in corde.
V. Omnia enim corda scrutátur, et univérsas méntium cogitatiónes intéllegit.
R. Homo videt in facie, Deus autem in corde.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Homo videt in facie, Deus autem in corde.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the grace of the Holy Spirit enlighten all our hearts and minds. Amen.

Reading 3
Eccl 7:11-14
11 Say not: What thinkest thou is the cause that former times were better than they are now? for this manner of question is foolish.
12 Wisdom with riches is more profitable, and bringeth more advantage to them that see the sun.
13 For as wisdom is a defence, so money is a defence: but learning and wisdom excel in this, that they give life to him that possesseth them.
14 Consider the works of God, that no man can correct whom he hath despised.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Lord, thine eyes behold all that is in the heart of man, and in thy book are they all written.
* Man looketh on the outward appearance, but God looketh on the heart.
V. For He searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts.
R. Man looketh on the outward appearance, but God looketh on the heart.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Man looketh on the outward appearance, but God looketh on the heart.

101:15 Quóniam placuérunt servis tuis lápides ejus: * et terræ ejus miserebúntur.
101:16 Et timébunt gentes nomen tuum, Dómine, * et omnes reges terræ glóriam tuam.
101:17 Quia ædificávit Dóminus Sion: * et vidébitur in glória sua.

101:19 Scribántur hæc in generatióne áltera: * et pópulus, qui creábitur, laudábit Dóminum:
101:20 Quia prospéxit de excélso sancto suo: * Dóminus de cælo in terram aspéxit:
101:21 Ut audíret gémitus compeditórum: * ut sólveret fílios interemptórum:
101:22 Ut annúntient in Sion nomen Dómini: * et laudem ejus in Jerúsalem.
101:23 In conveniéndo pópulos in unum, * et reges ut sérviant Dómino.

Psalm 101 [5]
101:2 Hear, O Lord, my prayer: * and let my cry come to thee.
101:3 Turn not away thy face from me: * in the day when I am in trouble, incline thy ear to me.
101:3 In what day soever I shall call upon thee, * hear me speedily.
101:4 For my days are vanished like smoke: * and my bones are grown dry like fuel for the fire.
101:5 I am smitten as grass, and my heart is withered: * because I forgot to eat my bread.
101:6 Through the voice of my groaning, * my bone hath cleaved to my flesh.
101:7 I am become like to a pelican of the wilderness: * I am like a night raven in the house.
101:8 I have watched, * and am become as a sparrow all alone on the housetop.
101:9 All the day long my enemies reproached me: * and they that praised me did swear against me.
101:10 For I did eat ashes like bread, * and mingled my drink with weeping.
101:11 Because of thy anger and indignation: * for having lifted me up thou hast thrown me down.
101:12 My days have declined like a shadow, * and I am withered like grass.
101:13 But thou, O Lord, endurest for ever: * and thy memorial to all generations.
101:14 Thou shalt arise and have mercy on Sion: * for it is time to have mercy on it, for the time is come.
101:15 For the stones thereof have pleased thy servants: * and they shall have pity on the earth thereof.
101:16 And the Gentiles shall fear thy name, O Lord, * and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
101:17 For the Lord hath built up Sion: * and he shall be seen in his glory.
101:18 He hath had regard to the prayer of the humble: * and he hath not despised their petition.
101:19 Let these things be written unto another generation: * and the people that shall be created shall praise the Lord:
101:20 Because he hath looked forth from his high sanctuary: * from heaven the Lord hath looked upon the earth.
101:21 That he might hear the groans of them that are in fetters: * that he might release the children of the slain:
101:22 That they may declare the name of the Lord in Sion: * and his praise in Jerusalem;
101:23 When the people assemble together, * and kings, to serve the Lord.
101:24 He answered him in the way of his strength: * Declare unto me the fewness of my days.
101:25 Call me not away in the midst of my days: * thy years are unto generation and generation.
101:26 In the beginning, O Lord, thou foundedst the earth: * and the heavens are the works of thy hands.
101:27 They shall perish but thou remainest: * and all of them shall grow old like a garment:
101:28 And as a vesture thou shalt change them, and they shall be changed. * But thou art always the selfsame, and thy years shall not fail.
101:29 The children of thy servants shall continue: * and their seed shall be directed for ever.
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.

102:11 Quóniam secúndum altitúdinem cæli a terra: * corroborávit misericórdiam suam super timéntes se.
102:12 Quantum distat ortus ab occidénte: * longe fecit a nobis iniquitátes nostras.
102:13 Quómodo miserétur pater filiórum, misértus est Dóminus timéntibus se: * quóniam ipse cognóvit figméntum nostrum.
102:14 Recordátus est quóniam pulvis sumus: * homo, sicut fænum dies ejus, tamquam flos agri sic efflorébit.
102:16 Quóniam spíritus pertransíbit in illo, et non subsístet: * et non cognóscet ámplius locum suum.
102:17 Misericórdia autem Dómini ab ætérno, * et usque in ætérnum super timéntes eum.
102:17 Et justítia illíus in fílios filiórum, * his qui servant testaméntum ejus:
102:18 Et mémores sunt mandatórum ipsíus, * ad faciéndum ea.
102:19 Dóminus in cælo parávit sedem suam: * et regnum ipsíus ómnibus dominábitur.
102:20 Benedícite Dómino, omnes Ángeli ejus: * poténtes virtúte, faciéntes verbum illíus, ad audiéndam vocem sermónum ejus.
102:21 Benedícite Dómino, omnes virtútes ejus: * minístri ejus, qui fácitis voluntátem ejus.
102:22 Benedícite Dómino, ómnia ópera ejus: * in omni loco dominatiónis ejus, bénedic, ánima mea, Dómino.

102:3 Who forgiveth all thy iniquities: * who healeth all thy diseases.

102:13 As a father hath compassion on his children, so hath the Lord compassion on them that fear him: * for he knoweth our frame.
102:14 He remembereth that we are dust: * man’s days are as grass, as the flower of the field so shall he flourish.
102:16 For the spirit shall pass in him, and he shall not be: * and he shall know his place no more.
102:17 But the mercy of the Lord is from eternity * and unto eternity upon them that fear him:
102:17 And his justice unto children’s children, * to such as keep his covenant,

103:3 Qui ponis nubem ascénsum tuum: * qui ámbulas super pennas ventórum.
103:4 Qui facis ángelos tuos, spíritus: * et minístros tuos ignem uréntem.
103:5 Qui fundásti terram super stabilitátem suam: * non inclinábitur in sǽculum sǽculi.
103:6 Abýssus, sicut vestiméntum, amíctus ejus: * super montes stabunt aquæ.
103:7 Ab increpatióne tua fúgient: * a voce tonítrui tui formidábunt.
103:8 Ascéndunt montes: et descéndunt campi * in locum, quem fundásti eis.
103:9 Términum posuísti, quem non transgrediéntur: * neque converténtur operíre terram.
103:10 Qui emíttis fontes in convállibus: * inter médium móntium pertransíbunt aquæ.
103:11 Potábunt omnes béstiæ agri: * exspectábunt ónagri in siti sua.
103:12 Super ea vólucres cæli habitábunt: * de médio petrárum dabunt voces.
103:13 Rigans montes de superióribus suis: * de fructu óperum tuórum satiábitur terra:
103:14 Prodúcens fænum juméntis, * et herbam servitúti hóminum:
103:14 Ut edúcas panem de terra: * et vinum lætíficet cor hóminis:
103:15 Ut exhílaret fáciem in óleo: * et panis cor hóminis confírmet.
103:16 Saturabúntur ligna campi, et cedri Líbani, quas plantávit: * illic pásseres nidificábunt.

Psalm 103 [7]
103:1 Bless the Lord, O my soul: * O Lord my God, thou art exceedingly great.
103:1 Thou hast put on praise and beauty: * and art clothed with light as with a garment.
103:2 Who stretchest out the heaven like a pavilion: * who coverest the higher rooms thereof with water.
103:3 Who makest the clouds thy chariot: * who walkest upon the wings of the winds.
103:4 Who makest thy angels spirits: * and thy ministers a burning fire.
103:5 Who hast founded the earth upon its own bases: * it shall not be moved for ever and ever.
103:6 The deep like a garment is its clothing: * above the mountains shall the waters stand.
103:7 At thy rebuke they shall flee: * at the voice of thy thunder they shall fear.
103:8 The mountains ascend, and the plains descend * into the place which thou hast founded for them.
103:9 Thou hast set a bound which they shall not pass over; * neither shall they return to cover the earth.
103:10 Thou sendest forth springs in the vales: * between the midst of the hills the waters shall pass.
103:11 All the beasts of the field shall drink: * the wild asses shall expect in their thirst.
103:12 Over them the birds of the air shall dwell: * from the midst of the rocks they shall give forth their voices.
103:13 Thou waterest the hills from thy upper rooms: * the earth shall be filled with the fruit of thy works:
103:14 Bringing forth grass for cattle, * and herb for the service of men.
103:14 That thou mayst bring bread out of the earth: * and that wine may cheer the heart of man.
103:15 That he may make the face cheerful with oil: * and that bread may strengthen man’s heart.
103:16 The trees of the field shall be filled, and the cedars of Libanus which he hath planted: * there the sparrows shall make their nests.
103:17 The highest of them is the house of the heron. * The high hills are a refuge for the harts, the rock for the irchins.
103:19 He hath made the moon for seasons: * the sun knoweth his going down.
103:20 Thou hast appointed darkness, and it is night: * in it shall all the beasts of the woods go about:
103:21 The young lions roaring after their prey, * and seeking their meat from God.
103:22 The sun ariseth, and they are gathered together: * and they shall lie down in their dens.
103:23 Man shall go forth to his work, * and to his labour until the evening.
103:24 How great are thy works, O Lord? * thou hast made all things in wisdom: the earth is filled with thy riches.
103:25 So is this great sea, which stretcheth wide its arms: * there are creeping things without number:
103:26 Creatures little and great. * There the ships shall go.
103:27 This sea dragon which thou hast formed to play therein. * All expect of thee that thou give them food in season.
103:28 What thou givest to them they shall gather up: * when thou openest thy hand, they shall all be filled with good.
103:29 But if thou turnest away thy face, they shall be troubled: * thou shalt take away their breath, and they shall fail, and shall return to their dust.
103:30 Thou shalt send forth thy spirit, and they shall be created: * and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
103:31 May the glory of the Lord endure for ever: * the Lord shall rejoice in his works.
103:32 He looketh upon the earth, and maketh it tremble: * he toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.
103:33 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live: * I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
103:34 Let my speech be acceptable to him: * but I will take delight in the Lord.
103:35 Let sinners be consumed out of the earth, and the unjust, so that they be no more: * O my soul, bless thou 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.

104:12 Cum essent número brevi, * paucíssimi et íncolæ ejus:

104:14 Non relíquit hóminem nocére eis: * et corrípuit pro eis reges.
104:15 Nolíte tángere christos meos: * et in prophétis meis nolíte malignári.

104:22 Ut erudíret príncipes ejus sicut semetípsum: * et senes ejus prudéntiam docéret.
104:23 Et intrávit Israël in Ægýptum: * et Jacob áccola fuit in terra Cham.

Psalm 104 [8]
104:1 Give glory to the Lord, and call upon his name: * declare his deeds among the Gentiles.
104:2 Sing to him, yea sing praises to him: * relate all his wondrous works.
104:3 Glory ye in his holy name: * let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.
104:4 Seek ye the Lord, and be strengthened: * seek his face evermore.
104:5 Remember his marvellous works which he hath done; * his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth.
104:6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant; * ye sons of Jacob his chosen.
104:7 He is the Lord our God: * his judgments are in all the earth.
104:8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever: * the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
104:9 Which he made to Abraham; * and his oath to Isaac:
104:10 And he appointed the same to Jacob for a law, * and to Israel for an everlasting testament:
104:11 Saying: To thee will I give the land of Chanaan, * the lot of your inheritance.
104:12 When they were but a small number: * yea very few, and sojourners therein:
104:13 And they passed from nation to nation, * and from one kingdom to another people.
104:14 He suffered no man to hurt them: * and he reproved kings for their sakes.
104:15 Touch ye not my anointed: * and do no evil to my prophets.
104:16 And he called a famine upon the land: * and he broke in pieces all the support of bread.
104:17 He sent a man before them: * Joseph, who was sold for a slave.
104:18 They humbled his feet in fetters: the iron pierced his soul, * until his word came.
104:19 The word of the Lord inflamed him: * the king sent, and he released him: the ruler of the people, and he set him at liberty.
104:21 He made him master of his house, * and ruler of all his possession.
104:22 That he might instruct his princes as himself, * and teach his ancients wisdom.
104:23 And Israel went into Egypt: * and Jacob was a sojourner in the land of Cham.
104:24 And he increased his people exceedingly: * and strengthened them over their enemies,
104:25 He turned their heart to hate his people: * and to deal deceitfully with his servants.
104:26 He sent Moses his servant: * Aaron the man whom he had chosen.
104:27 He gave them power to shew his signs, * and his wonders in the land of Cham.
104:28 He sent darkness, and made it obscure: * and grieved not his words.
104:29 He turned their waters into blood, * and destroyed their fish.
104:30 Their land brought forth frogs, * in the inner chambers of their kings.
104:31 He spoke, and there came divers sorts of flies, * and sciniphs in all their coasts.
104:32 He gave them hail for rain, * a burning fire in the land.
104:33 And he destroyed their vineyards, and their fig trees: * and he broke in pieces the trees of their coasts.
104:34 He spoke, and the locust came, and the bruchus, * of which there was no number.
104:35 And they devoured all the grass in their land, * and consumed all the fruit of their ground.
104:36 And he slew all the firstborn in their land: * the firstfruits of all their labour.
104:37 And he brought them out with silver and gold: * and there was not among their tribes one that was feeble.
104:38 Egypt was glad when they departed: * for the fear of them lay upon them.
104:39 He spread a cloud for their protection, * and fire to give them light in the night.
104:40 They asked, and the quail came: * and he filled them with the bread of heaven.
104:41 He opened the rock, and waters flowed: * rivers ran down in the dry land.
104:42 Because he remembered his holy word, * which he had spoken to his servant Abraham.
104:43 And he brought forth his people with joy, * and his chosen with gladness.
104:44 And he gave them the lands of the Gentiles: * and they possessed the labours of the people:
104:45 That they might observe his justifications, * and seek after his law.
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.

Ant. Bless the Lord O my soul.
V. Dómine, exáudi oratiónem meam.
R. Et clamor meus ad te véniat.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.
Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris:
V. Et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem:
R. Sed líbera nos a malo.
Absolutio. Ipsíus píetas et misericórdia nos ádjuvet, qui cum Patre et Spíritu Sancto vivit et regnat in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
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.
V. And lead us not into temptation:
R. But deliver us from evil.
Absolution. May His loving-kindness and mercy help us, Who liveth and reigneth with the Father, and the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.

V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Deus Pater omnípotens sit nobis propítius et clemens. Amen.

Sermo sancti Augustíni Epíscopi.
Serm. 30. de Sanctis.
Beatissimi Laurentii Martyris, cujus natalem hodie celebramus, passionem nosse vos credo: et quanta in persecutione pertulerit, dilectionem vestram scire posse non dubito. Tanta enim ejus martyrii gloria exstitit, ut passione sua mundum illuminaverit universum. Illuminavit mundum plane Laurentius eo lumine, quo ipse accensus est, et flammis quas ipse pertulit, omnium Christianorum corda calefecit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Quo progréderis sine fílio, pater? quo, sacérdos sancte, sine diácono próperas?
* Tu nunquam sine minístro sacrifícium offérre consuéveras.
V. Quid ergo in me displícuit paternitáti tuæ? numquid degénerem me probásti? Experíre utrum idóneum minístrum elégeris, cui commisísti Domínici sánguinis dispensatiónem.
R. Tu nunquam sine minístro sacrifícium offérre consuéveras.

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

From the Sermons of St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
30th on the Saints.
I belive that ye know the history of the sufferings of that most blessed Martyr, Lawrence, whose birth-day we are keeping this day, and I doubt not, my beloved brethren, but that ye may know what agonies he endured under the persecutors. So illustrious is the glory of his martyrdom, that the splendour thereof shineth throughout the whole world. And this light, which Lawrence maketh so clearly to shine throughout the world, is the light of the fire wherewith he himself was enkindled. By the flames which he endured, he hath made hot every Christian heart.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Father, whither goest thou without thy son? Holy Priest, dost thou fare hence without a Deacon?
* It hath never been thy use to offer sacrifice without a minister.
V. What therefore in me hath displeased thee, my Father? Hast thou tried me and found me unworthy to be called thy son? Make trial if I am indeed a useless servant, even I, whom thou didst choose, to commit unto me the administration of the Cup of the Blood of the Lord.
R. It hath never been thy use to offer sacrifice without a minister.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Lectio 5
Quis nolit ad horam uri Laurentii igne, ut æternum gehennæ non patiatur incendium? Beati igitur Laurentii exemplo provocamur ad martyrium, et accendimur ad fidem, incalescimus ad devotionem: et si in nobis persecutoris flamma deest, fidei tamen flamma non deest. Non ardemus quidem corpore pro Christo, sed ardemus affectu: non subjicit mihi persecutor ignem: sed suggerit mihi ignem desiderium Salvatoris.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Noli me derelínquere, pater sancte, quia thesáuros tuos jam expéndi.
* Non ego te désero, fili, neque derelínquo; sed majóra tibi debéntur pro fide Christi certámina.
V. Nos quasi senes levióris pugnæ cursum recípimus, te autem quasi júvenem manet gloriósior de tyránno triúmphus: post tríduum me sequéris sacerdótem levíta.
R. Non ego te désero, fili, neque derelínquo; sed majóra tibi debéntur pro fide Christi certámina.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
Who is there but knoweth how that Lawrence chose rather to burn in earthly flames for a while, than to suffer the eternal fire of hell? The example, therefore, of blessed Lawrence provoketh us to lift up our testimony, kindleth our faith, and setteth our love all a-glow. If for us there are now no fires of persecution, the flame of faith is not therefore quenched. We give not our bodies to be burned for Christ's sake, but our hearts burn with His love. The persecutor stirreth up no fire around me, but a fire is stirred up in me by the longing for the presence of my Saviour.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Leave me not, holy Father, for I have spent already thy treasures.
* I leave thee not, my son, neither forsake thee but there awaiteth thee for Christ's truth a wrestling sterner than mine.
V. We, as old men, have an easier race to run; for thee in thy youth, there is kept a more glorious victory over the enemy; yet three days, and thou shalt follow me, the Deacon behind the Priest.
R. I leave thee not, my son, neither forsake thee but there awaiteth thee for Christ's truth a wrestling sterner than mine.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ignem sui amóris accéndat Deus in córdibus nostris. Amen.

Lectio 6
Esse autem Salvatoris ignem legimus in Evangelio, dicente eodem Domino: Nescitis quia veni ignem mittere in terram? Et quid volo, nisi ut accendatur? Quo igne succensi illi duo discipuli dixerunt: Nonne cor nostrum ardens erat in nobis, dum loqueretur in via, et aperiret nobis Scripturas? Hoc igitur igne beatus Laurentius accensus, flammarum non sentit incendium: et dum Christi ardet desiderio, persecutoris pœnam non sentit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Beátus Lauréntius clamávit et dixit: Deum meum colo, illi soli sérvio;
* Et ídeo non tímeo torménta tua.
V. Mea nox obscúrum non habet, sed ómnia in luce claréscunt.
R. Et ídeo non tímeo torménta tua.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et ídeo non tímeo torménta tua.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Spirit's fire Divine in our hearts enkindled shine. Amen.

Reading 6
But that the Saviour hath a fire of His own we read in the Gospel, where the Lord saith lam come to send fire on the earth, and what will I but that it be kindled? Luke xii. 49. It was this fire which had been enkindled in the two disciples when they said Did not our heart burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened to us the Scriptures? Luke xxiv. 32. It was because this fire had been enkindled within him that the blessed Lawrence felt not the burning of the flames, and through eager yearning for the sight of Christ perceived not the cruelty of his persecutor.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The blessed Lawrence cried and said: My God do I worship, and Him only do I serve
* And therefore I am not afraid of thy tortures.
V. The darkness is no darkness to me, but the night is all as clear as the morning, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
R. And therefore I am not afraid of thy tortures.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And therefore I am not afraid of thy tortures.

105:17 Apérta est terra, et deglutívit Dathan: * et opéruit super congregatiónem Abíron.
105:18 Et exársit ignis in synagóga eorum * flamma combússit peccatóres.
105:19 Et fecérunt vítulum in Horeb * et adoravérunt scúlptile.

105:21 Oblíti sunt Deum, qui salvávit eos, * qui fecit magnália in Ægýpto, mirabília in terra Cham: terribília in Mari Rubro.
105:23 Et dixit ut dispérderet eos: * si non Móyses, eléctus ejus, stetísset in confractióne in conspéctu ejus:
105:24 Ut avérteret iram ejus ne dispérderet eos: * et pro níhilo habuérunt terram desiderábilem:
105:25 Non credidérunt verbo ejus, et murmuravérunt in tabernáculis suis: * non exaudiérunt vocem Dómini.
105:26 Et elevávit manum suam super eos: * ut prostérneret eos in desérto:

105:32 Et irritavérunt eum ad aquas contradictiónis: * et vexátus est Móyses propter eos: quia exacerbavérunt spíritum ejus.
105:33 Et distínxit in lábiis suis: * non disperdidérunt gentes, quas dixit Dóminus illis.
105:35 Et commísti sunt inter gentes, et didicérunt ópera eórum: et serviérunt sculptílibus eórum: * et factum est illis in scándalum.
105:37 Et immolavérunt fílios suos, * et filias suas dæmóniis.
105:38 Et effudérunt sánguinem innocéntem: * sánguinem filiórum suórum et filiárum suárum, quas sacrificavérunt sculptílibus Chánaan.
105:39 Et infécta est terra in sanguínibus, et contamináta est in opéribus eórum: * et fornicáti sunt in adinventiónibus suis.

Psalm 105 [9]
105:1 Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
105:2 Who shall declare the powers of the Lord? * who shall set forth all his praises?
105:3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, * and do justice at all times.
105:4 Remember us, O Lord, in the favour of thy people: * visit us with thy salvation.
105:5 That we may see the good of thy chosen, that we may rejoice in the joy of thy nation: * that thou mayst be praised with thy inheritance.
105:6 We have sinned with our fathers: * we have acted unjustly, we have wrought iniquity.
105:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt: * they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies:
105:7 And they provoked to wrath going up to the sea, * even the Red Sea.
105:8 And he saved them for his own name’s sake: * that he might make his power known.
105:9 And he rebuked the Red Sea, and it was dried up: * and he led them through the depths, as in a wilderness.
105:10 And he saved them from the hand of them that hated them: * and he redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
105:11 And the water covered them that afflicted them: * there was not one of them left.
105:12 And they believed his words: * and they sang his praises.
105:13 They had quickly done, they forgot his works: * and they waited not for his counsels.
105:14 And they coveted their desire in the desert: * and they tempted God in the place without water.
105:15 And he gave them their request: * and sent fulness into their souls.
105:16 And they provoked Moses in the camp, * Aaron the holy one of the Lord.
105:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan: * and covered the congregation of Abiron.
105:18 And a fire was kindled in their congregation: * the flame burned the wicked.
105:19 They made also a calf in Horeb: * and they adored the graven thing.
105:20 And they changed their glory * into the likeness of a calf that eateth grass.
105:21 They forgot God, who saved them, * who had done great things in Egypt, wondrous works in the land of Cham: terrible things in the Red Sea.
105:23 And he said that he would destroy them: * had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach:
105:24 To turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them; * and they set at nought the desirable land.
105:25 They believed not his word, and they murmured in their tents: * they hearkened not to the voice of the Lord.
105:26 And he lifted up his hand over them: * to overthrow them in the desert;
105:27 And to cast down their seed among the nations, * and to scatter them in the countries.
105:28 They also were initiated to Beelphegor: * and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
105:29 And they provoked him with their inventions: * and destruction was multiplied among them.
105:30 Then Phinees stood up, and pacified him: * and the slaughter ceased.
105:31 And it was reputed to him unto justice, * to generation and generation for evermore.
105:32 They provoked him also at the waters of contradiction: * and Moses was afflicted for their sakes: because they exasperated his spirit.
105:33 And he distinguished with his lips; * they did not destroy the nations of which the Lord spoke unto them.
105:35 And they were mingled among the heathens, and learned their works: and served their idols, * and it became a stumblingblock to them.
105:37 And they sacrificed their sons, * and their daughters to devils.
105:38 And they shed innocent blood: * the blood of their sons and of their daughters which they sacrificed to the idols of Chanaan.
105:39 And the land was polluted with blood, and was defiled with their works: * and they went aside after their own inventions.
105:40 And the Lord was exceedingly angry with his people: * and he abhorred his inheritance.
105:41 And he delivered them into the hands of the nations: * and they that hated them had dominion over them.
105:42 And their enemies afflicted them: and they were humbled under their hands: * many times did he deliver them.
105:43 But they provoked him with their counsel: * and they were brought low by their iniquities.
105:44 And he saw when they were in tribulation: * and he heard their prayer.
105:45 And he was mindful of his covenant: * and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
105:46 And he gave them unto mercies, * in the sight of all those that had made them
105:47 Save us, O Lord, our God: * and gather us from among nations:
105:47 That we may give thanks to thy holy name, * and may glory in thy praise.
105:48 Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting: * and let all the people say: So be it, so be it.
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.

106:1 Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
106:2 Let them say so that have been redeemed by the Lord, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy: * and gathered out of the countries.
106:3 From the rising and the setting of the sun, * from the north and from the sea.
106:4 They wandered in a wilderness, in a place without water: * they found not the way of a city for their habitation.
106:5 They were hungry and thirsty: * their soul fainted in them.
106:6 And they cried to the Lord in their tribulation: * and he delivered them out of their distresses.
106:7 And he led them into the right way: * that they might go to a city of habitation.
106:8 Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: * and his wonderful works to the children of men.
106:9 For he hath satisfied the empty soul, * and hath filled the hungry soul with good things.
106:10 Such as sat in darkness and in the shadow of death: * bound in want and in iron.
106:11 Because they had exasperated the words of God: * and provoked the counsel of the most High:
106:12 And their heart was humbled with labours: * they were weakened, and there was none to help them.
106:13 Then they cried to the Lord in their affliction: * and he delivered them out of their distresses.
106:14 And he brought them out of darkness, * and the shadow of death; and broke their bonds in sunder.
106:15 Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him, * and his wonderful works to the children of men.
106:16 Because he hath broken gates of brass, * and burst the iron bars.
106:17 He took them out of the way of their iniquity: * for they were brought low for their injustices.
106:18 Their soul abhorred all manner of meat: * and they drew nigh even to the gates of death.
106:19 And they cried to the Lord in their affliction: * and he delivered them out of their distresses.
106:20 He sent his word, and healed them: * and delivered them from their destructions.
106:21 Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: * and his wonderful works to the children of men
106:22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifice of praise: * and declare his works with joy.
106:23 They that go down to the sea in ships, * doing business in the great waters:
106:24 These have seen the works of the Lord, * and his wonders in the deep.
106:25 He said the word, and there arose a storm of wind: * and the waves thereof were lifted up.
106:26 They mount up to the heavens, and they go down to the depths: * their soul pined away with evils.
106:27 They were troubled, and reeled like a drunken man; * and all their wisdom was swallowed up.
106:28 And they cried to the Lord in their affliction: * and he brought them out of their distresses.
106:29 And he turned the storm into a breeze: * and its waves were still.
106:30 And they rejoiced because they were still: * and he brought them to the haven which they wished for.
106:31 Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him, * and his wonderful works to the children of men.
106:32 And let them exalt him in the church of the people: * and praise him in the chair of the ancients.
106:33 He hath turned rivers into a wilderness: * and the sources of water into dry ground:
106:34 A fruitful land into barrenness, * for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
106:35 He hath turned a wilderness into pools of water, * and a dry land into water springs.
106:36 And hath placed there the hungry; * and they made a city for their habitation.
106:37 And they sowed fields, and planted vineyards: * and they yielded fruit of birth.
106:38 And he blessed them, and they were multiplied exceedingly: * and their cattle he suffered not to decrease.
106:39 Then they were brought to be few: * and they were afflicted through the trouble of evils and sorrow.
106:40 Contempt was poured forth upon their princes: *and he caused them to wander where there was no passing, and out of the way.
106:41 And he helped the poor out of poverty: * and made him families like a flock of sheep.
106:42 The just shall see, and shall rejoice, * and all iniquity shall stop their mouth.
106:43 Who is wise, and will keep these things: * and will understand the mercies of 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.

Ant. Visit us with Thy salvation, O Lord.

Psalmus 107 [11]
107:2 Parátum cor meum, Deus, parátum cor meum: * cantábo, et psallam in glória mea.
107:3 Exsúrge, glória mea, exsúrge, psaltérium et cíthara: * exsúrgam dilúculo.
107:4 Confitébor tibi in pópulis, Dómine: * et psallam tibi in natiónibus.

107:7 Salvum fac déxtera tua, et exáudi me: * Deus locútus est in sancto suo:

107:9 Meus est Gálaad, et meus est Manásses: * et Éphraim suscéptio cápitis mei.

107:11 Quis dedúcet me in civitátem munítam? * quis dedúcet me usque in Idumǽam?
107:12 Nonne tu, Deus, qui repulísti nos, * et non exíbis, Deus, in virtútibus nostris?
107:13 Da nobis auxílium de tribulatióne: * quia vana salus hóminis.
107:14 In Deo faciémus virtútem: * et ipse ad níhilum dedúcet inimícos nostros.

Ant. I will greatly praise
Psalm 107 [11]
107:2 My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready: * I will sing, and will give praise, with my glory.
107:3 Arise, my glory; arise, psaltery and harp * I will arise in the morning early.
107:4 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: * and I will sing unto thee among the nations.
107:5 For thy mercy is great above the heavens: * and thy truth even unto the clouds.
107:6 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and thy glory over all the earth: * that thy beloved may be delivered.
107:7 Save with thy right hand and hear me. * God hath spoken in his holiness.
107:8 I will rejoice, and I will divide Sichem * and I will mete out the vale of tabernacles.
107:9 Galaad is mine: and Manasses is mine: * and Ephraim the protection of my head.
107:10 Juda is my king: * Moab the pot of my hope.
107:10 Over Edom I will stretch out my shoe: * the aliens are become my friends.
107:11 Who will bring me into the strong city? * who will lead me into Edom?
107:12 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? * and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our armies?
107:13 O grant us help from trouble: * for vain is the help of man.
107:14 Through God we shall do mightily: * and he will bring our enemies to nothing.
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.

Psalmus 108 [12]
108:2 Deus, laudem meam ne tacúeris: * quia os peccatóris, et os dolósi super me apértum est.
108:3 Locúti sunt advérsum me lingua dolósa, et sermónibus ódii circumdedérunt me: * et expugnavérunt me gratis.
108:4 Pro eo ut me dilígerent, detrahébant mihi: * ego autem orábam.
108:5 Et posuérunt advérsum me mala pro bonis: * et ódium pro dilectióne mea.
108:6 Constítue super eum peccatórem: * et diábolus stet a dextris ejus.
108:7 Cum judicátur, éxeat condemnátus: * et orátio ejus fiat in peccátum.
108:8 Fiant dies ejus pauci: * et episcopátum ejus accípiat alter.
108:9 Fiant fílii ejus órphani: * et uxor ejus vídua.
108:10 Nutántes transferántur fílii ejus, et mendícent: * et eiciántur de habitatiónibus suis.
108:11 Scrutétur fænerátor omnem substántiam ejus: * et dirípiant aliéni labóres ejus.
108:12 Non sit illi adjútor: * nec sit qui misereátur pupíllis ejus.
108:13 Fiant nati ejus in intéritum: * in generatióne una deleátur nomen ejus.
108:14 In memóriam rédeat iníquitas patrum ejus in conspéctu Dómini: * et peccátum matris ejus non deleátur.
108:15 Fiant contra Dóminum semper, et dispéreat de terra memória eórum: * pro eo quod non est recordátus fácere misericórdiam.
108:17 Et persecútus est hóminem ínopem, et mendícum, * et compúnctum corde mortificáre.
108:18 Et diléxit maledictiónem, et véniet ei: * et nóluit benedictiónem, et elongábitur ab eo.
108:18 Et índuit maledictiónem sicut vestiméntum, * et intrávit sicut aqua in interióra ejus, et sicut óleum in óssibus ejus.
108:19 Fiat ei sicut vestiméntum, quo operítur: * et sicut zona, qua semper præcíngitur.
108:20 Hoc opus eórum, qui détrahunt mihi apud Dóminum: * et qui loquúntur mala advérsus ánimam meam.
108:21 Et tu, Dómine, Dómine, fac mecum propter nomen tuum: * quia suávis est misericórdia tua.
108:22 Líbera me quia egénus, et pauper ego sum: * et cor meum conturbátum est intra me.
108:23 Sicut umbra cum declínat, ablátus sum: * et excússus sum sicut locústæ.
108:24 Génua mea infirmáta sunt a jejúnio: * et caro mea immutáta est propter óleum.
108:25 Et ego factus sum oppróbrium illis: * vidérunt me, et movérunt cápita sua.
108:26 Ádjuva me, Dómine, Deus meus: * salvum me fac secúndum misericórdiam tuam.
108:27 Et sciant quia manus tua hæc: * et tu, Dómine, fecísti eam.
108:28 Maledícent illi, et tu benedíces: * qui insúrgunt in me, confundántur: servus autem tuus lætábitur.
108:29 Induántur qui détrahunt mihi, pudóre: * et operiántur sicut diplóide confusióne sua.
108:30 Confitébor Dómino nimis in ore meo: * et in médio multórum laudábo eum.
108:31 Quia ástitit a dextris páuperis, * ut salvam fáceret a persequéntibus ánimam meam.

Psalm 108 [12]
108:2 God, be not thou silent in my praise: * for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful man is opened against me.
108:3 They have spoken against me with deceitful tongues; and they have compassed me about with words of hatred; * and have fought against me without cause.
108:4 Instead of making me a return of love, they detracted me: * but I gave myself to prayer.
108:5 And they repaid me evil for good: * and hatred for my love.
108:6 Set thou the sinner over him: * and may the devil stand at his right hand.
108:7 When he is judged, may he go out condemned; * and may his prayer be turned to sin.
108:8 May his days be few: * and his bishopric let another take.
108:9 May his children be fatherless, * and his wife a widow.
108:10 Let his children be carried about vagabonds, and beg; * and let them be cast out of their dwellings.
108:11 May the usurer search all his substance: * and let strangers plunder his labours.
108:12 May there be none to help him: * nor none to pity his fatherless offspring.
108:13 May his posterity be cut off; * in one generation may his name be blotted out.
108:14 May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered in the sight of the Lord: * and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
108:15 May they be before the Lord continually, and let the memory of them perish from the earth: * because he remembered not to shew mercy,
108:17 But persecuted the poor man and the beggar; * and the broken in heart, to put him to death.
108:18 And he loved cursing, and it shall come unto him: * and he would not have blessing, and it shall be far from him.
108:18 And he put on cursing, like a garment: * and it went in like water into his entrails, and like oil in his bones.
108:19 May it be unto him like a garment which covereth him; * and like a girdle with which he is girded continually.
108:20 This is the work of them who detract me before the Lord; * and who speak evils against my soul.
108:21 But thou, O Lord, do with me for thy name’s sake: * because thy mercy is sweet.
108:22 Do thou deliver me, for I am poor and needy, * and my heart is troubled within me.
108:23 I am taken away like the shadow when it declineth: * and I am shaken off as locusts.
108:24 My knees are weakened through fasting: * and my flesh is changed for oil.
108:25 And I am become a reproach to them: * they saw me and they shaked their heads.
108:26 Help me, O Lord my God; * save me according to thy mercy.
108:27 And let them know that this is thy hand: * and that thou, O Lord, hast done it.
108:28 They will curse and thou wilt bless: * let them that rise up against me be confounded: but thy servant shall rejoice.
108:29 Let them that detract me be clothed with shame: * and let them be covered with their confusion as with a double cloak.
108:30 I will give great thanks to the Lord with my mouth: * and in the midst of many I will praise him.
108:31 Because he hath stood at the right hand of the poor, * to save my soul from persecutors.
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.

Ant. I will greatly praise the Lord with my mouth.
V. Dómine, exáudi oratiónem meam.

V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.
Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris:

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.
V. And lead us not into temptation:
R. But deliver us from evil.
Absolution. May the Almighty and merciful Lord loose us from the bonds of our sins. Amen.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Joánnem.
Joannes 12:25-27
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discipulis suis: Amen, amen dico vobis, nisi granum frumenti cadens in terram, mortuum fuerit; ipsum solum manet. Et réliqua.

De Homilía sancti Augustíni Epíscopi.
Ex Tract. 51. in Joann., post supra.
Cum ergo causæ articulus venerit, ut hæc conditio proponatur, aut faciendum esse contra Dei præceptum, aut ex hac vita emigrandum; quorum duorum homo si cogatur alterum eligere, comminante mortem persecutore, ibi eligat Deo dilecto emori, quam offenso vivere. Ibi oderit in hoc mundo animam suam, ut in vitam ætérnam custodiat eam. Si quis mihi ministrat, me sequatur. Quid est, Me sequatur, nisi, Me imitetur? Christus enim pro nobis passus est, ait Apostolus Petrus, relinquens nobis exemplum, ut sequamur vestigia ejus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. In cratícula te Deum non negávi,
* Et ad ignem applicátus te Dóminum Jesum Christum conféssus sum.
V. Probásti, Dómine, cor meum, et visitásti nocte.
R. Et ad ignem applicátus te Dóminum Jesum Christum conféssus sum.

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 John
John 12:25-27
At that time Jesus said unto His disciples Amen, Amen I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone. And so on.

Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
51st Tract on John.
When matters are come to this pass that a simple choice must be made, either to break the law of God, or to bid farewell to this life; when a man must needs choose one or the other alternative, and the persecutor is threatening him with death, then let him choose rather to honour God and die, than to insult Him and live. This choice will be to hate his life in this world and to keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve Me, let him follow Me. And what is it to follow Christ but to imitate Him? Christ, saith the Apostle Peter, suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we should follow His steps. I. ii. 21.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Upon the bars I denied thee not, O God.
* And when they put me to the fire, I acknowledged thee to be the Lord, O Jesus Christ.
V. Lord, Thou hast proved mine heart and visited it by night.
R. And when they put me to the fire, I acknowledged thee to be the Lord, O Jesus Christ.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Ecce quod dictum est: Si quis mihi ministrat, me sequatur. Quo fructu? qua mercede? quo præmio? Et ubi sum, inquit, ego, illic et minister meus erit. Gratis ametur, ut operis, quo ministratur illi, pretium sit esse cum illo. Ubi enim bene erit sine illo, aut quando esse male poterit cum illo? Audi evidentius: Si quis mihi,ministraverit, honorificabit eum Pater meus. Quo honore, nisi ut sit cum Filio ejus? Quod enim superius ait: Ubi ego sum, illic et minister meus erit hoc intelligitur exposuisse, cum dicit: Honorificabit eum Pater meus. Nam quem majorem honorem accipere poterit adoptatus, quam ut sit ubi est unicus, non æqualis factus divinitati, sed consociatus æternitati?
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. O Hippólyte, si credíderis in Dóminum Jesum Christum,
* Et thesáuros tibi osténdo, et vitam ætérnam promítto.
V. Beátus Lauréntius Hippólyto dixit: Si credis in Dóminum Jesum Christum.
R. Et thesáuros tibi osténdo, et vitam ætérnam promítto.

R. Et thesáuros tibi osténdo, et vitam ætérnam promítto.

Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
Behold what is said If any man serve Me, let him follow Me. Follow Him, and with what result? at what wage? for what reward? And, saith the Lord, where I am, there shall also My servant be. He must be loved for Himself alone, if the wage of working in His service be to be with Him. Where would it be well where He was not? Or where could it be ill where He was? Hear even more clearly If any man serve Me, him will My Father honour. With what honour will He honour him, but to put him to be with His Own Son? That which is said first Where I am there shall also My servant be is explained by the next words Him will My Father honour. What higher honour can an adopted son receive, than to be where the Only-Begotten Son is, not in equality of Divine nature, but linked in eternal fellowship?
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O Hippolytus, if thou believest in the Lord Jesus Christ,
* I lay before thee treasure an hundredfold, and promise thee life everlasting.
V. The blessed Lawrence said unto Hippolytus: If thou believest in the Lord Jesus Christ.
R. I lay before thee treasure an hundred-fold, and promise thee life everlasting.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. I lay before thee treasure an hundred-fold, and promise thee life everlasting.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Sed vide ne tibi subrépat, ut teípsum velis interímere, sic intellegéndo, quod debes odísse in hoc mundo ánimam tuam. Hinc enim quidam malígni atque pervérsi hómines, et in seípsis crudelióres et sceleratióres homicídæ, flammis se donant, aquis se præfócant, præcipítio se collídunt, et péreunt. Hoc Christus non dócuit; immo étiam diábolo præcipítium suggerénti respóndit: Redi retro, sátana: scriptum est, Non tentábis Dóminum, Deum tuum. Petro autem dixit, signíficans qua morte clarificatúrus erat Deum: Cum esses júnior, cingébas te, et ambulábas quo volébas; cum autem senúeris, alter te cinget et feret quo tu non vis. Ubi satis expréssit, non a seípso, sed ab álio debére occídi, qui vestígia séquitur Christi.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

Reading 9
Beware, lest thou take these words: He that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal as some do, for an approval of suicide. Some evil and perverse men, bloody and guilty murderers of themselves, do indeed throw themselves into the fire, drown themselves in water, and cast themselves down precipices, and so perish. This is not the teaching of Christ, Who, when the devil would have Him cast Himself down from an high place, answered: Get thee behind Me, Satan. It is written, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Matth. iv. 5-7. Who also said to Peter, signifying by what death he should glorify God: When thou wast young thou girdedst thyself and walkedst whither thou wouldest; but when thou shalt be old, another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. John xxi. 18. From which it is evident that he that would follow Christ's footsteps, must be slain, not by himself, but by another.
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.
