Psalm 3 [0]
3:2 Why, O Lord, are they multiplied that afflict me? * many are they who rise up against me.

For the sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. (genuflect) Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us: For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.

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.

Ever resoundeth.

21:2 Deus, Deus meus, réspice in me: quare me dereliquísti? * longe a salúte mea verba delictórum meórum.
21:3 Deus meus, clamábo per diem, et non exáudies: * et nocte, et non ad insipiéntiam mihi.
21:4 Tu autem in sancto hábitas, * laus Israël.
21:5 In te speravérunt patres nostri: * speravérunt, et liberásti eos.
21:6 Ad te clamavérunt, et salvi facti sunt: * in te speravérunt, et non sunt confúsi.
21:7 Ego autem sum vermis, et non homo: * oppróbrium hóminum, et abjéctio plebis.
21:8 Omnes vidéntes me, derisérunt me: * locúti sunt lábiis, et movérunt caput.
21:9 Sperávit in Dómino, erípiat eum: * salvum fáciat eum, quóniam vult eum.
21:10 Quóniam tu es, qui extraxísti me de ventre: * spes mea ab ubéribus matris meæ. In te projéctus sum ex útero:
21:11 De ventre matris meæ Deus meus es tu, * ne discésseris a me:
21:12 Quóniam tribulátio próxima est: * quóniam non est qui ádjuvet.
21:13 Circumdedérunt me vítuli multi: * tauri pingues obsedérunt me.
21:14 Aperuérunt super me os suum, * sicut leo rápiens et rúgiens.
21:15 Sicut aqua effúsus sum: * et dispérsa sunt ómnia ossa mea.
21:15 Factum est cor meum tamquam cera liquéscens * in médio ventris mei.
21:16 Aruit tamquam testa virtus mea, et lingua mea adhǽsit fáucibus meis: * et in púlverem mortis deduxísti me.
21:17 Quóniam circumdedérunt me canes multi: * concílium malignántium obsédit me.
21:17 Fodérunt manus meas et pedes meos: * dinumeravérunt ómnia ossa mea.
21:18 Ipsi vero consideravérunt et inspexérunt me: * divisérunt sibi vestiménta mea, et super vestem meam misérunt sortem.
21:20 Tu autem, Dómine, ne elongáveris auxílium tuum a me: * ad defensiónem meam cónspice.
21:21 Erue a frámea, Deus, ánimam meam: * et de manu canis únicam meam:

Psalm 21 [2]
21:2 O God my God, look upon me: why hast thou forsaken me? * Far from my salvation are the words of my sins.
21:3 O my God, I shall cry by day, and thou wilt not hear: * and by night, and it shall not be reputed as folly in me.
21:4 But thou dwellest in the holy place, * the praise of Israel.
21:5 In thee have our fathers hoped: * they have hoped, and thou hast delivered them.
21:6 They cried to thee, and they were saved: * they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
21:7 But I am a worm, and no man: * the reproach of men, and the outcast of the people.
21:8 All they that saw me have laughed me to scorn: * they have spoken with the lips, and wagged the head.
21:9 He hoped in the Lord, let him deliver him: * let him save him, seeing he delighteth in him.
21:10 For thou art he that hast drawn me out of the womb: * my hope from the breasts of my mother. I was cast upon thee from the womb.
21:11 From my mother’s womb thou art my God, * depart not from me.
21:12 For tribulation is very near: * for there is none to help me.
21:13 Many calves have surrounded me: * fat bulls have besieged me.
21:14 They have opened their mouths against me, * as a lion ravening and roaring.
21:15 I am poured out like water; * and all my bones are scattered.
21:15 My heart is become like wax melting * in the midst of my bowels.
21:16 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue hath cleaved to my jaws: * and thou hast brought me down into the dust of death.
21:17 For many dogs have encompassed me: * the council of the malignant hath besieged me.
21:17 They have dug my hands and feet. * They have numbered all my bones.
21:18 And they have looked and stared upon me. * They parted my garments amongst them; and upon my vesture they cast lots.
21:20 But thou, O Lord, remove not thy help to a distance from me; * look towards my defence.
21:21 Deliver, O God, my soul from the sword: * my only one from the hand of the dog.
21:22 Save me from the lion’s mouth; * and my lowness from the horns of the unicorns.
21:23 I will declare thy name to my brethren: * in the midst of the church will I praise thee.
21:24 Ye that fear the Lord, praise him: * all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him.
21:25 Let all the seed of Israel fear him: * because he hath not slighted nor despised the supplication of the poor man.
21:25 Neither hath he turned away his face from me: * and when I cried to him he heard me.
21:26 With thee is my praise in a great church: * I will pay my vows in the sight of them that fear him.
21:27 The poor shall eat and shall be filled: and they shall praise the Lord that seek him: * their hearts shall live for ever and ever.
21:28 All the ends of the earth * shall remember, and shall be converted to the Lord:
21:28 And all the kindreds of the Gentiles * shall adore in his sight.
21:29 For the kingdom is the Lord’s; * and he shall have dominion over the nations.
21:30 All the fat ones of the earth have eaten and have adored: * all they that go down to the earth shall fall before him.
21:31 And to him my soul shall live: * and my seed shall serve him.
21:32 There shall be declared to the Lord a generation to come: * and the heavens shall shew forth his justice to a people that shall be born, which the Lord hath made.
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 22 [3]
22:1 Dóminus regit me, et nihil mihi déerit: * in loco páscuæ ibi me collocávit.
22:2 Super aquam refectiónis educávit me: * ánimam meam convértit.
22:3 Dedúxit me super sémitas justítiæ, * propter nomen suum.
22:4 Nam, et si ambulávero in médio umbræ mortis, non timébo mala: * quóniam tu mecum es.
22:4 Virga tua, et báculus tuus: * ipsa me consoláta sunt.
22:5 Parásti in conspéctu meo mensam, * advérsus eos, qui tríbulant me.
22:5 Impinguásti in óleo caput meum: * et calix meus inébrians quam præclárus est!
22:6 Et misericórdia tua subsequétur me * ómnibus diébus vitæ meæ:
22:6 Et ut inhábitem in domo Dómini, * in longitúdinem diérum.

22:2 He hath brought me up, on the water of refreshment: * he hath converted my soul.
22:3 He hath led me on the paths of justice, * for his own name’s sake.
22:4 For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, * for thou art with me.
22:4 Thy rod and thy staff, * they have comforted me.
22:5 Thou hast prepared a table before me * against them that afflict me.
22:5 Thou hast anointed my head with oil; * and my chalice which inebriateth me, how goodly is it!
22:6 And thy mercy will follow me * all the days of my life.
22:6 And that I may dwell in the house of the Lord * unto length of days.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Lesson from the book of Wisdom
Wis 1:1-4
1 Love justice, you that are the judges of the earth. Think of the Lord in goodness, and seek him in simplicity of heart.
2 For he is found by them that tempt him not: and he showeth himself to them that have faith in him.
3 For perverse thoughts separate from God: and his power, when it is tried, reproveth the unwise:
4 For wisdom will not enter into a malicious soul, nor dwell in a body subject to sins.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. God possessed me in the beginning, before He made the earth, before He created the depths, before He caused the fountains of water to spring.
* Before the mountains were settled, before there were any hills, did the Lord beget me.
V. When He prepared the heavens, I was there with Him, ordering all things.
R. Before the mountains were settled, before there were any hills, did the Lord beget me.

6 Benígnus est enim spíritus sapiéntiæ et non liberábit malédicum a lábiis suis; quóniam renum illíus testis est Deus et cordis illíus scrutátor est verus, et linguæ ejus audítor:
7 Quóniam spíritus Dómini replévit orbem terrárum, et hoc quod cóntinet ómnia, sciéntiam habet vocis.
8 Propter hoc qui lóquitur iníqua non potest latére, nec prætériet illum corrípiens judícium.

Wis 1:5-8
5 For the Holy Spirit of discipline will flee from the deceitful, and will withdraw himself from thoughts that are without understanding, and he shall not abide when iniquity cometh in.
6 For the spirit of wisdom is benevolent, and will not acquit the evil speaker from his lips: for God is witness of his reins, and he is a true searcher of his heart, and a hearer of his tongue.
7 For the spirit of the Lord hath filled the whole world: and that, which containeth all things, hath knowledge of the voice.
8 Therefore he that speaketh unjust things cannot be hid, neither shall the chastising judgment pass him by.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I alone compassed the circuit of heaven, and walked on the waves of the sea. In every nation and in every people, I held the first place.

Wis 1:9-11
9 For inquisition shall be made into the thoughts of the ungodly: and the hearing of his words shall come to God, to the chastising of his iniquities.
10 For the ear of jealousy heareth all things, and the tumult of murmuring shall not be hid.
11 Keep yourselves therefore from murmuring, which profiteth nothing, and refrain your tongue from detraction, for an obscure speech shall not go for nought: and the mouth that belieth, killeth the soul.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

26:6 I have gone round, and have offered up in his tabernacle a sacrifice of jubilation: * I will sing, and recite a psalm to the Lord.

26:11 Set me, O Lord, a law in thy way, * and guide me in the right path, because of my enemies.

30:13 Factus sum tamquam vas pérditum: * quóniam audívi vituperatiónem multórum commorántium in circúitu.
30:14 In eo dum convenírent simul advérsum me, * accípere ánimam meam consiliáti sunt.

30:18 Erubéscant ímpii, et deducántur in inférnum: * muta fiant lábia dolósa.
30:19 Quæ loquúntur advérsus justum iniquitátem: * in supérbia, et in abusióne.
30:20 Quam magna multitúdo dulcédinis tuæ, Dómine, * quam abscondísti timéntibus te.
30:20 Perfecísti eis, qui sperant in te, * in conspéctu filiórum hóminum.
30:21 Abscóndes eos in abscóndito faciéi tuæ * a conturbatióne hóminum.

Psalm 30 [11]
30:2 In thee, O Lord, have I hoped, let me never be confounded: * deliver me in thy justice.
30:3 Bow down thy ear to me: * make haste to deliver me.
30:3 Be thou unto me a God, a protector, and a house of refuge, * to save me.
30:4 For thou art my strength and my refuge; * and for thy name’s sake thou wilt lead me, and nourish me.
30:5 Thou wilt bring me out of this snare, which they have hidden for me: * for thou art my protector.
30:6 Into thy hands I commend my spirit: * thou hast redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth.
30:7 Thou hast hated them that regard vanities, * to no purpose.
30:7 But I have hoped in the Lord: * I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy.
30:8 For thou hast regarded my humility, * thou hast saved my soul out of distresses.
30:9 And thou hast not shut me up in the hands of the enemy: * thou hast set my feet in a spacious place.
30:10 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am afflicted: * my eye is troubled with wrath, my soul, and my belly:
30:11 For my life is wasted with grief: * and my years in sighs.
30:11 My strength is weakened through poverty * and my bones are disturbed.
30:12 I am become a reproach among all my enemies, and very much to my neighbours; * and a fear to my acquaintance.
30:12 They that saw me without fled from me. * I am forgotten as one dead from the heart.
30:13 I am become as a vessel that is destroyed. * For I have heard the blame of many that dwell round about.
30:14 While they assembled together against me, * they consulted to take away my life.
30:15 But I have put my trust in thee, O Lord: * I said: Thou art my God. My lots are in thy hands.
30:16 Deliver me out of the hands of my enemies; * and from them that persecute me
30:17 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; save me in thy mercy. * Let me not be confounded, O Lord, for I have called upon thee.
30:18 Let the wicked be ashamed, and be brought down to hell. * Let deceitful lips be made dumb.
30:19 Which speak iniquity against the just, * with pride and abuse.
30:20 How great is the multitude of thy sweetness, O Lord, * which thou hast hidden for them that fear thee!
30:20 Which thou hast wrought for them that hope in thee, * in the sight of the sons of men.
30:21 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy face, * from the disturbance of men.
30:21 Thou shalt protect them in thy tabernacle * from the contradiction of tongues.
30:22 Blessed be the Lord, * for he hath shewn his wonderful mercy to me in a fortified city.
30:23 But I said in the excess of my mind: * I am cast away from before thy eyes.
30:23 Therefore thou hast heard the voice of my prayer, * when I cried to thee.
30:24 O love the Lord, all ye his saints: * for the Lord will require truth, and will repay them abundantly that act proudly.
30:25 Do ye manfully, and let your heart be strengthened, * all ye that hope in 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.

31:3 Quóniam tácui, inveteravérunt ossa mea, * dum clamárem tota die.
31:4 Quóniam die ac nocte graváta est super me manus tua: * convérsus sum in ærúmna mea, dum confígitur spina.
31:5 Delíctum meum cógnitum tibi feci: * et injustítiam meam non abscóndi.
31:5 Dixi: Confitébor advérsum me injustítiam meam Dómino: * et tu remisísti impietátem peccáti mei.
31:6 Pro hac orábit ad te omnis sanctus, * in témpore opportúno.
31:6 Verúmtamen in dilúvio aquárum multárum, * ad eum non approximábunt.
31:7 Tu es refúgium meum a tribulatióne, quæ circúmdedit me: * exsultátio mea, érue me a circumdántibus me.
31:8 Intelléctum tibi dabo, et ínstruam te in via hac, qua gradiéris: * firmábo super te óculos meos.
31:9 Nolíte fíeri sicut equus et mulus, * quibus non est intelléctus.
31:9 In camo et freno maxíllas eórum constrínge, * qui non appróximant ad te.
31:10 Multa flagélla peccatóris, * sperántem autem in Dómino misericórdia circúmdabit.

Psalm 31 [12]
31:1 Blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven * and whose sins are covered.
31:2 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord hath not imputed sin, * and in whose spirit there is no guile.
31:3 Because I was silent my bones grew old; * whilst I cried out all the day long.
31:4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: * I am turned in my anguish, whilst the thorn is fastened.
31:5 I have acknowledged my sin to thee, * and my injustice I have not concealed.
31:5 I said I will confess against myself my injustice to the Lord: * and thou hast forgiven the wickedness of my sin.
31:6 For this shall every one that is holy pray to thee * in a seasonable time.
31:6 And yet in a flood of many waters, * they shall not come nigh unto him.
31:7 Thou art my refuge from the trouble which hath encompassed me: * my joy, deliver me from them that surround me.
31:8 I will give thee understanding, and I will instruct thee in this way, in which thou shalt go: * I will fix my eyes upon thee.
31:9 Do not become like the horse and the mule, * who have no understanding.

Magnus justítiæ splendor, quæ aliis potius nata quam sibi, communitátem et societátem nostram ádjuvat, excelsitátem tenet, ut suo judício ómnia subjécta habeat, opem aliis ferat, pecúniam cónferat, offícia non abnuat, pericula suscipiat aliena. Quis non cúperet hanc virtútis arcem tenére, nisi prima avarítia infirmaret atque inflecteret tantæ virtútis vigórem? Etenim dum augere opes, aggregare pecúnias, occupare terras possessiónibus cupimus, præstare divítiis; justítiæ formam exuimus, beneficéntiam communem amittimus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Da mihi, Dómine, sédium tuárum assistrícem sapiéntiam, et noli me reprobáre a púeris tuis:

Reading 4
From the Book of St. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, "On Offices."
Bk. i. c. 28.
Great is the glory of justice. She liveth for others rather than for herself. By her our commonwealth and fellowship are holpen. She holdeth such a pre-eminence that all things are subject unto her judgment. She helpeth others. She giveth wealth. She refuseth not to labour. She taketh upon her the dangers of others. Who would not desire to hold this castle of power and courage, if the covetousness of our first parents had not weakened and distorted the strength of our nerve But so it is, that, while we are fain to increase wealth, to put by money, to add lands to our possessions, or to make show of our abundance, we put off the image of justice, and lose charity toward our brethren.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Give me wisdom, O Lord, that sitteth by thy throne, and reject me not from among thy children.
* For I am thy servant and son of thine handmaid.
V. O send her out from the throne of thy glory, to be with me and to labour with me.
R. For I am thy servant and son of thine handmaid.

Quanta autem justítia sit, ex hoc intelligi potest, quod nec locis, nec persónis, nec tempóribus excipitur, quæ étiam hostibus reservátur: ut si constitútus sit cum hoste aut locus aut dies prælio, advérsus justítiam putétur aut loco præveníre aut témpore. Interest enim utrum áliquis pugna aliqua et conflictu gravi capiátur, an superiore grátia, vel aliquo eventu. Si ergo in bello justítia valet, quanto magis in pace servanda est?
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Inítium sapiéntiæ timor Dómini:
* Intelléctus bonus ómnibus faciéntibus eum: laudátio ejus manet in sǽculum sǽculi.

Reading 5
How far-spreading is the field of justice appeareth by this, that there is excepted therefrom no place, person, or time, nay, she hath to do even as regards enemies, for if one be agreed with his enemy of a certain place, or day for battle, it should be deemed unjust to fall on him beforehand, at some other place, or time. For it is a very different thing, whether one get the better of another in a hard fight, or by skill, or by accident. If therefore in war justice hath place, how much more is she to be observed in time of peace
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
* A good understanding have all they that do His commandments. His praise endureth for ever.
V. Love is the keeping of her laws, for all wisdom is the fear of the Lord.

Fundaméntum ergo est justítiæ fides. Justórum enim corda meditántur fidem: et qui se justus accusat, justítiam supra fidem cóllocat. Nam tunc justítia ejus appáret, si vera fateátur. Denique et Dóminus per Isaíam: Ecce, inquit, mitto lápidem in fundaméntum Sion: id est, Christum in fundaméntum Ecclésiæ. Fides enim ómnium Christus: Ecclésia autem quædam forma justítiæ est, commune jus ómnium: in commune orat, in commune operátur, in commune tentátur. Denique qui seípsum sibi ábnegat, ipse justus, ipse dignus Christo est. Ideo et Paulus fundaméntum pósuit Christum, ut supra eum ópera justítiæ locaremus, quia fides fundaméntum est.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Verbum iníquum et dolósum longe fac a me, Dómine:
* Divítias et paupertátem ne déderis mihi, sed tantum víctui meo tríbue necessária.
V. Duo rogávi te, ne déneges mihi ántequam móriar.
R. Divítias et paupertátem ne déderis mihi, sed tantum víctui meo tríbue necessária.

Reading 6
Honour is the foundation of justice. The thoughts in the hearts of just men are honourable thoughts and when the just man accuseth himself, it is honour that bringeth him to that just deed. Then is his justice made manifest by his honourable avowal. The Lord saith by Isaiah " Behold, I lay in Zion a foundation-stone" xxviii. 16, that is to say, He giveth Christ unto the Church to be her foundation. Christ is the true honour for all men, and the Church is as it were a figure of justice, being a commonwealth wherein all have rights, and which worketh as one, and suffereth as one. Whosoever denieth himself, the same is just, and worthy of Christ. Therefore also Paul saith " Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ " I Cor. iii. 11 , and upon that foundation is it, that every building of justice must be raised. For the spirit of Christ is the true spirit of honour which is the foundation whereon justice resteth.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Lord, remove far from me vanity and lies.
* Give me neither poverty nor riches, but feed me with food convenient for me.
V. Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die.
R. Give me neither poverty nor riches, but feed me with food convenient for me.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Give me neither poverty nor riches, but feed me with food convenient for me.

In illo tempore: Dixit Jesus discipulis suis: Beati oculi, qui vident quae vos videtis. Dico enim vobis, quod multi prophetae et reges voluerunt videre quae vos videtis, et non viderunt. Et reliqua.

Homilia venerabilis Bedae Presbyteri.
Liber 3. cap. 43. in Lucae 10.
Non oculi scribarum et pharisaeorum, qui corpus tantum Domini videre; sed illi beati oculi, qui ejus possunt cognoscere sacramenta, de quibus dicitur: Et revelasti ea parvulis. Beati oculi parvulorum, quibus et se et Patrem Filius revelare dignatur. Abraham exsultavit ut videret diem Christi: et vidit, et gavisus est. Isaias quoque, et Michaeas, et multi alii prophetae viderunt gloriam Domini: qui et propterea Videntes sunt appellati: sed hi omnes a longe aspicientes et salutantes, per speculum et in aenigmate viderunt.

From the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 10:23-37
At that time Jesus said unto His disciples Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see. For I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them. And so on.

Homily by the Venerable Bede, Priest at Jarrow.
Bk. iii. ch. 43 on Luke x.
Blessed were the eyes not of Scribes and Pharisees, which saw but the Body of the Lord, but those eyes, eyes blessed indeed, which were able to see those things whereof it is written "Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes." Blessed are the eyes of those little ones unto whom it seemeth good in the eyes of the Son to reveal Himself and the Father also. Abraham rejoiced to see the day of Christ and he saw it, and was glad. John viii. 56. Isaiah, and Micah, and many among the Prophets, saw the glory of the Lord, wherefore also they be called Seers, but all they beheld it and hailed it afar off, seeing but as through a glass, darkly. (1 Cor. xiii. 12.)
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. Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Apostoli autem in praesentiarum habentes Dominum, convescentesque ei, et quaecumque voluissent interrogando discentes, nequaquam per Angelos, aut varias visionum species opus habebant doceri. Quos vero Lucas multos prophetas et reges dicit, Matthaeus apertius prophetas et justos appellat. Ipsi sunt enim reges magni: quia tentationum suarum motibus non consentiendo succumbere, sed regendo praeesse noverunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Domine, si conversus fuerit populus tuus, et oraverit ad sanctuarium tuum:
* Tu exaudies de caelo Domine, et libera eos de manibus inimicorum suorum.
V. Si peccaverit in te populus tuus, et conversus egerit poenitentiam, veniensque oraverit in isto loco.
R. Tu exaudies de caelo Domine, et libera eos de manibus inimicorum suorum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 8
Otherwise were the Apostles, who saw the Lord face to Face, eating with Him, and learning from Him by asking whatsoever they listed. For them there was no need to be taught by Angels, or the shifting fabric of visions. They whom Luke doth call Prophets and kings, Matthew nameth as " Prophets and righteous men " (xiii. 17.) Righteous men are indeed mighty kings, who know how to lord it over their own rebellious temptations, instead of falling under them to become their slaves.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Lord, when thy people shall turn again to thee, and shall pray unto thee in this house
* then hear Thou in heaven, O Lord, and deliver them out of the hand of their enemies.
V. If thy people sin against thee, and turn again, and repent, and come and pray unto thee in this house.
R. Then hear Thou in heaven, O Lord, and deliver them out of the hand of their enemies.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Et ecce quidam legisperitus surrexit, tentans eum, et dicens: Magister, quid facienda vitam aeternam possidebo? Legisperitus, qui de vita aeterna Dominum tentans interrogat, occasionem, ut reor, tentandi de ipsis Domini sermonibus sumpsit, ubi ait: Gaudete autem quod nomina vestra scripta sunt in caelis. Sed ipsa sua tentatione declarat, quam vera sit illa Domini confessio, qua Patri loquitur: Quod abscondisti haec a sapientibus et prudentibus, et revelasti ea parvulis.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Duo Seraphim clamabant alter ad alterum:
* Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dominus Deus Sabaoth: * Plena est omnis terra gloria ejus.
V. Tres sunt qui testimonium dant in caelo, Pater, Verbum, et Spiritus sanctus: et hi tres unum sunt.
R. Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dominus Deus Sabaoth:
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Plena est omnis terra gloria ejus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 9
"And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted Him, saying Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" This lawyer, who stood up to ask the Lord a tempting question touching eternal life, took the subject of his asking, as I think, from the words which the Lord had just uttered, when He said "Rejoice, because your names are written in heaven" 20. But his attempt was a proof of the truth of that which the Lord immediately added "I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes!"
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. One Seraph cried unto another
* Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God of hosts the whole earth is full of His glory.
V. There are Three That bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost and these Three are One.
R. Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God of hosts
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. The whole earth is full of His glory.

Sequentia Sancti Evangelii secundum Lucam
Luc 10:23-37
10:23 Et conversus ad discipulos suos, dixit: Beati oculi qui vident quae vos videtis.
10:24 Dico enim vobis quod multi prophetae et reges voluerunt videre quae vos videtis, et non viderunt: et audire quae auditis, et non audierunt.
10:25 Et ecce quidam legisperitus surrexit tentans illum, et dicens: Magister, quid faciendo vitam aeternam possidebo?
10:26 At ille dixit ad eum: In lege quid scriptum est? quomodo legis?
10:27 Ille respondens dixit: Diliges Dominum Deum tuum ex toto corde tuo, et ex tota anima tua, et ex omnibus virtutibus tuis, et ex omni mente tua: et proximum tuum sicut teipsum.
10:28 Dixitque illi: Recte respondisti: hoc fac, et vives.
10:29 Ille autem volens justificare seipsum, dixit ad Jesum: Et quis est meus proximus?
10:30 Suscipiens autem Jesus, dixit: Homo quidam descendebat ab Jerusalem in Jericho, et incidit in latrones, qui etiam despoliaverunt eum: et plagis impositis abierunt semivivo relicto.
10:31 Accidit autem ut sacerdos quidam descenderet eadem via: et viso illo praeterivit.
10:32 Similiter et Levita, cum esset secus locum, et videret eum, pertransiit.
10:33 Samaritanus autem quidam iter faciens, venit secus eum: et videns eum, misericordia motus est.
10:34 Et appropians alligavit vulnera ejus, infundens oleum et vinum: et imponens illum in jumentum suum, duxit in stabulum, et curam ejus egit.
10:35 Et altera die protulit duos denarios, et dedit stabulario, et ait: Curam illius habe: et quodcumque supererogaveris, ego cum rediero reddam tibi.
10:36 Quis horum trium videtur tibi proximus fuisse illi, qui incidit in latrones?
10:37 At ille dixit: Qui fecit misericordiam in illum. Et ait illi Jesus: Vade, et tu fac similiter.
Te decet laus, te decet hymnus: tibi glória Deo Patri, et Fílio, cum Spíritu Sancto in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 10:23-37
10:23 And turning to his disciples, he said: Blessed are the eyes that see the things which you see.
10:24 For I say to you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see the things that you see, and have not seen them; and to hear the things that you hear, and have not heard them.
10:25 And behold a certain lawyer stood up, tempting him, and saying, Master, what must I do to possess eternal life?
10:26 But he said to him: What is written in the law? how readest thou?
10:27 He answering, said: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbour as thyself.
10:28 And he said to him: Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.
10:29 But he willing to justify himself, said to Jesus: And who is my neighbour?
10:30 And Jesus answering, said: A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, who also stripped him, and having wounded him went away, leaving him half dead.
10:31 And it chanced, that a certain priest went down the same way: and seeing him, passed by.
10:32 In like manner also a Levite, when he was near the place and saw him, passed by.
10:33 But a certain Samaritan being on his journey, came near him; and seeing him, was moved with compassion.
10:34 And going up to him, bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine: and setting him upon his own beast, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
10:35 And the next day he took out two pence, and gave to the host, and said: Take care of him; and whatsoever thou shalt spend over and above, I, at my return, will repay thee.
10:36 Which of these three, in thy opinion, was neighbour to him that fell among the robbers?
10:37 But he said: He that shewed mercy to him. And Jesus said to him: Go, and do thou in like manner.
Thou art worthy of praise, thou art worthy of hymns, to Thee be glory: to God the Father and the Son with the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.
