Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris: et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem: sed líbera nos a malo. Amen.
Ave María, grátia plena; Dóminus tecum: benedícta tu in muliéribus, et benedíctus fructus ventris tui Jesus. Sancta María, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatóribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostræ. Amen.
Credo in Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, Creatórem cæli et terræ.
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.
V. Dómine, lábia +︎ mea apéries.
R. Et os meum annuntiábit laudem tuam.
V. Deus in adjutórium meum inténde.

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.
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.

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 Confessors, * 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 Confessors, * 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.

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. Beátus vir,
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:

Ant. Blessed is the man
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.
1:2 But his will is in the law of the Lord, * and on his law he shall meditate day and night.
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.
1:5 Therefore the wicked shall not rise again in judgment: * nor sinners in the council of the just.
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.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

2:3 Dirumpámus víncula eórum: * et proiciámus a nobis jugum ipsórum.
2:4 Qui hábitat in cælis, irridébit eos: * et Dóminus subsannábit eos.

2:6 Ego autem constitútus sum Rex ab eo super Sion montem sanctum ejus, * prǽdicans præcéptum ejus.
2:7 Dóminus dixit ad me: * Fílius meus es tu, ego hódie génui te.
2:8 Póstula a me, et dabo tibi gentes hereditátem tuam, * et possessiónem tuam términos terræ.
2:9 Reges eos in virga férrea, * et tamquam vas fíguli confrínges eos.
2:10 Et nunc, reges, intellégite: * erudímini, qui judicátis terram.
2:11 Servíte Dómino in timóre: * et exsultáte ei cum tremóre.
2:12 Apprehéndite disciplínam, nequándo irascátur Dóminus, * et pereátis de via justa.

Ant. Blessed and holy is he
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.
2:11 Serve ye the Lord with fear: * and rejoice unto him with trembling.
2:12 Embrace discipline, lest at any time the Lord be angry, * and you perish from the just way.
2:13 When his wrath shall be kindled in a short time, * blessed are all they that trust in him.

3:5 I have cried to the Lord with my voice: * and he hath heard me from his holy hill.

Lesson from the first letter of St. Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians
1 Cor 7:1-4
1 Now concerning the thing whereof you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2 But for fear of fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
3 Let the husband render the debt to his wife, and the wife also in like manner to the husband.
4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband. And in like manner the husband also hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. In thee, O God, do I put my trust; let me never be put to confusion, O Lord deliver me in thy righteousness,
* And cause me to escape.
V. Incline thine ear unto me, deliver me speedily.
R. And cause me to escape.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adjuváre dignétur. Amen.

1 Cor 7:5-9
5 Nolíte fraudáre ínvicem, nisi forte ex consénsu ad tempus, ut vacétis oratióni: et íterum revertímini in idípsum, ne tentet vos sátanas propter incontinéntiam vestram.
6 Hoc autem dico secúndum indulgéntiam, non secúndum impérium.
7 Volo enim omnes vos esse sicut meípsum: sed unusquísque próprium donum habet ex Deo: álius quidem sic, álius vero sic.
8 Dico autem non nuptis, et víduis: bonum est illis si sic permáneant, sicut et ego.
9 Quod si non se cóntinent, nubant. Mélius est enim núbere, quam uri.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Repleátur os meum laude tua, ut hymnum dicam glóriæ tuæ, tota die magnitúdinem tuam: noli me proícere in témpore senectútis:
* Dum defécerit in me virtus mea, ne derelínquas me.
V. Gaudébunt lábia mea cum cantávero tibi.
R. Dum defécerit in me virtus mea, ne derelínquas me.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Son, the Sole-begotten, mercifully bless and keep us. Amen.

1 Cor 7:5-9
5 Defraud not one another, except, perhaps, by consent, for a time, that you may give yourselves to prayer; and return together again, lest Satan tempt you for your incontinency.
6 But I speak this by indulgence, not by commandment.
7 For I would that all men were even as myself: but every one hath his proper gift from God; one after this manner, and another after that.
8 But I say to the unmarried, and to the widows: It is good for them if they so continue, even as I.
9 But if they do not contain themselves, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to be burnt.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Let my mouth be filled with thy praise, that I may sing of thy glory, all the day long of thy greatness. Cast me not off in the time of old age;
* Forsake me not when my strength faileth.
V. My lips shall be fain when I sing unto thee.
R. Forsake me not when my strength faileth.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Spíritus Sancti grátia illúminet sensus et corda nostra. Amen.

1 Cor 7:10-14
10 Iis autem, qui matrimónio juncti sunt, præcípio non ego, sed Dóminus, uxórem a viro non discédere:
11 Quod si discésserit, manére innúptam, aut viro suo reconciliári. Et vir uxórem non dimíttat.
12 Nam céteris ego dico, non Dóminus. Si quis frater uxórem habet infidélem et hæc conséntit habitáre cum illo, non dimíttat illam.
13 Et si qua múlier fidélis habet virum infidélem, et hic conséntit habitáre cum illa, non dimíttat virum:
14 Sanctificátus est enim vir infidélis per mulíerem fidélem, et sanctificáta est múlier infidélis per virum fidélem: alióquin fílii vestri immúndi essent, nunc autem sancti sunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Gaudébunt lábia mea cum cantávero tibi:
* Et ánima mea, quam redemísti, Dómine.
V. Sed et lingua mea meditábitur justítiam tuam, tota die laudem tuam.
R. Et ánima mea, quam redemísti, Dómine.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et ánima mea, quam redemísti, Dómine.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the grace of the Holy Spirit enlighten all our hearts and minds. Amen.

Reading 3
1 Cor 7:10-14
10 But to them that are married, not I but the Lord commandeth, that the wife depart not from her husband.
11 And if she depart, that she remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband. And let not the husband put away his wife.
12 For to the rest I speak, not the Lord. If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she consent to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
13 And if any woman hath a husband that believeth not, and he consent to dwell with her, let her not put away her husband.
14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the believing wife; and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the believing husband: otherwise your children should be unclean; but now they are holy.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. My lips shall be fain when I sing unto thee;
* And my soul, which Thou, O Lord, hast redeemed.
V. My tongue shall also talk of thy righteousness, all the day long of thy praise.
R. And my soul, which Thou, O Lord, hast redeemed.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And my soul, which Thou, O Lord, hast redeemed.

4:2 When I called upon him, the God of my justice heard me: * when I was in distress, thou hast enlarged me.
4:2 Have mercy on me: * and hear my prayer.
4:3 O ye sons of men, how long will you be dull of heart? * Why do you love vanity, and seek after lying?
4:4 Know ye also that the Lord hath made his holy one wonderful: * the Lord will hear me when I shall cry unto him.
4:5 Be ye angry, and sin not: * the things you say in your hearts, be sorry for them upon your beds.
4:6 Offer up the sacrifice of justice, and trust in the Lord: * many say, Who sheweth us good things?
4:7 The light of thy countenance, O Lord, is signed upon us: * thou hast given gladness in my heart.
4:8 By the fruit of their corn, their wine, and oil, * they are multiplied.
4:9 In peace in the selfsame * I will sleep, and I will rest:
4:10 For thou, O Lord, singularly * hast settled me in hope.
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. When His holy one called, the Lord heard him, yea, the Lord heard him, and gave him peace.

5:2 Give ear, O Lord, to my words * understand my cry.
5:3 Hearken to the voice of my prayer, * O my King and my God.
5:4 For to thee will I pray: * O Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear my voice.
5:5 In the morning I will stand before thee, and will see: * because thou art not a God that willest iniquity.
5:6 Neither shall the wicked dwell near thee: * nor shall the unjust abide before thy eyes.
5:7 Thou hatest all the workers of iniquity: * thou wilt destroy all that speak a lie.
5:7 The bloody and the deceitful man the Lord will abhor. * But as for me in the multitude of thy mercy,
5:8 I will come into thy house; * I will worship towards thy holy temple, in thy fear.
5:9 Conduct me, O Lord, in thy justice: * because of my enemies, direct my way in thy sight.
5:10 For there is no truth in their mouth: * their heart is vain.
5:11 Their throat is an open sepulchre: they dealt deceitfully with their tongues: * judge them, O God.
5:11 Let them fall from their devices: according to the multitude of their wickednesses cast them out: * for they have provoked thee, O Lord.
5:12 But let all them be glad that hope in thee: * they shall rejoice for ever, and thou shalt dwell in them.
5:12 And all they that love thy name shall glory in thee: * For thou wilt bless the just.
5:13 O Lord, thou hast crowned us, * as with a shield of thy good will.

Lectio 4
Hilarius, in Aquitania nobili genere natus, doctrina et eloquéntia excelluit. Qui primum in matrimonio quasi mónachi vitam egit: deínde propter singulares virtútes Pictavórum epíscopus creátur: quod munus episcopale sic gessit, ut a fidelibus summam laudem consequerétur. Quo témpore, cum terróribus, bonórum spoliatióne, exsílio, et omni crudelitate Constantius imperátor Catholicos vexáret, nisi ad Arianas partes transírent; Hilarius tamquam firmíssimum murum se Ariánis opponens, illórum furórem in se concitávit. Itaque multis petítus insídiis, tandem dolo Saturnini Arelaténsis epíscopi, de synodo Biterrénsi in Phrygiam relegátus est: ubi et mortuum suscitávit, et libros duódecim scripsit de Trinitáte contra Ariános.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Benediction. May God the Father Omnipotent, be to us merciful and clement. Amen.

Reading 4
This Hilary was born of a noble family in Aquitaine, and is distinguished as a divine and an orator. He was married in his earlier life, but even then lived the life of a monk and on account of his remarkable holiness, was ultimately made Bishop of Poitiers, about the year 353, in which office he did his duty so as to gain the universal praise of the faithful. At that time the Emperor Constantius was persecuting the Catholics by threats, by the plundering of their goods, by exile, and at length, by every species of cruelty, in order to force them to yield to the Arian heresy. Against the Arians Hilary set himself up as a brazen wall, and turned upon himself the fierceness of their anger. They assailed him by many artifices, and at last Saturnine, Bishop of Aries, at the Council of Beziers, in 356, procured his banishment to Phrygia. During this exile he raised a dead man to life, and wrote a work in twelve books on the Trinity, against the Arians.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I have found David My servant, with My holy oil have I anointed him
* For My hand shall help him.
V. The enemy shall prevail nothing against him, nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
R. For My hand shall help him.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Lectio 5
Quadriennio post coacto concílio ad Seleucíam, Isauriæ urbem, Hilarius adesse compulsus est: ac deínde Constantinopolim profectus, ubi extremum fidei periculum animadvértit, tribus libellis publice datis, audiéntiam imperatóris poposcit, ut de fide cum adversariis coram disputaret. Verum cum Ursacius et Valens Ariáni epíscopi, quos Hilarius scriptis confutarat, præsentis eruditiónem pertimescerent, Constantio persuasérunt, ut spécie honoris eum in suum episcopátum restitúeret. Tunc Hilárium e prælio hæreticórum revertentem, ut inquit sanctus Hieronymus, Galliárum ecclésia complexa est: quem ad episcopátum secutus est Martinus, qui postea Turonénsi præfuit ecclésiæ; tantumque illo doctore profecit, quantum ejus postea sanctitas declarávit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Pósui adjutórium super poténtem, et exaltávi eléctum de plebe mea:

Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
In the year 359, the fourth of his exile, took place the Council of Seleucia in Isauria, at which Hilary was obliged to be present, but afterwards withdrew to Constantinople. Here he realised more sharply the awful nature of this crisis in the history of Christianity, published three pamphlets in the form of letters to the Emperor, and demanded from that Prince leave to hold a public disputation in his presence. The Arian Bishops Ursacius and Valens, whom Hilary had already confuted in writing, were afraid to meet him in debate, and therefore induced Constantius, under pretence of pardon, to send him back to his Bishopric, (in 360.) His mother, the Church of Gaul, to use the language of Jerome, received him with open arms on his return from the battle with the heretics. He was followed to Poitiers by Martin, afterwards Bishop of Tours, whose after holiness was a fruit of his teaching.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I have laid help upon one that is mighty, and have exalted one chosen out of My people
* For My hand shall help him.
V. I have found David My servant, with My holy oil have I anointed him.
R. For My hand shall help him.

Magna deinceps tranquillitate Pictavórum ecclésiam administrávit: Galliámque universam adduxit, ut Arianórum impietátem condemnaret. Multos libros scripsit mira eruditióne; quos omnes sanctus Hieronymus ad Lætam, sine ulla erroris suspicióne legi posse testátur illis verbis: Hilarii libros inoffenso decurrat pede. Migrávit in cælum Idibus Januarii, Valentiniáno et Valénte imperatóribus, anno post Christum natum trecentésimo sexagesimo nono.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

Reading 6
Henceforth he ruled the Church of Poitiers in great peace. By his exertions the Church of Gaul was led to denounce the Arian blasphemy. His wonderful learning is seen in his numerous works, of which Jerome write to Laeta that he deemeth them quite faultless. One can follow Hilary in his books, saith he, without tripping once. He passed from earth to heaven upon the thirteenth day of January, in the year of our Lord 369, in the reign of the Emperors Valentinian and Valens. He had already been called an illustrious Doctor of the Church, by many Fathers and Councils, and was so styled in the Liturgy in some Dioceses, when at length, in the year 1850, Pope Pius IX., at the prayer of the Synod of Bordeaux, and in accordance with a resolution of the Sacred Congregation of Rites, proclaimed and confirmed the title, and commanded that the Mass and Office of his Feast should be everywhere said as those of a Doctor.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. This is he which wrought great wonders before God, and the whole earth is full of his teaching
* May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them
V. This is he which loved not his life in this world, and hath attained unto the kingdom of heaven.
R. May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them

Comm. in Matthæum, can. 4
Vos estis sal terræ: Quod si sal infatuátum fúerit, ad níhilum valet id quod saliétur. Sal, ut árbitror, terræ nullum est. Quómodo ergo Apóstolos sal terræ nuncupávit?

From the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 5:13-19
At that time, Jesus said unto His disciples: Ye are the salt of the earth. But if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted. And so on.

Homily by St. Hilary, Bishop of Poitiers.
Comment, on Matth. V
"Ye are the salt of the earth. But if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men." There is, I take it, no such thing as salt of the earth. How, then, can the Apostles be called the salt of the earth? But the true meaning of these words will be made plain, when we consider the duty of Apostles, and the nature of salt itself. Now, salt is a compound of the elements of water and fire, out of the which two things in salt there is made one.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord loved him and beautified him He clothed him with a robe of glory
* And crowned him at the gates of Paradise.

Reading 8
This thing, therefore, thus made to serve in diverse ways the use of men, doth keep from corruption bodies whereon it is sprinkled, and doth readily yield to all the senses the perception of its inborn savour. And thus are the Apostles, seeing that they are the preachers of the kingdom of heaven, and in a certain sense the sowers of the seed of life everlasting, since that Word of God which they scatter hath power to make this mortal put on immortality. Meetly then are they called salt, the savour of whose teaching doth keep sweet the receiver thereof even unto life everlasting.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. In the midst of the congregation did the Lord open his mouth.
* And filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding.
V. He made him rich with joy and gladness.
R. And filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Commemoratio S. Felicis Presbýteri et Mart.
Felix Nolanus presbyter, cum in idola vehementius inveherétur, ab infidelibus varie vexatus, in carcerem conjícitur. Unde ab Angelo nocte edúctus, quærere jussus est Maximianum Nolæ episcopum: qui cum senio confectus desperáret se ferre posse supplícia persequéntium, se abdíderat in silvam. Quo cum Felix Deo duce pervenísset, sanctum episcopum humi jacéntem pene mortuum videt; quem recreátum ac sublátum in humeros, apud fidélem víduam reficiéndum curávit. Sed cum is íterum idolórum cultores impietátis argúeret, facto in ipsum ímpetu, fúgiens in angusto duórum paríetum intervallo se occultávit; qui áditus cum repénte araneárum telis pertextus visus esset, némini recentis látebræ suspiciónem relíquit. Inde ígitur evádens Felix in ædibus piæ mulíeris tres menses látuit. Cum vero Dei Ecclésia requiéscere cœpísset, Nolam rédiens, multisque ibi vitæ exemplis, et doctrinæ præceptis, miraculisque ad Christi fidem conversis, constanter étiam recusato ejus urbis episcopatu, obdormívit in Dómino, sepultúsque est prope Nolam in loco, quem in Pincis appellábant.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Commemoration for St. Felix, Priest and Martyr.
Felix was a Priest of Nola, who on account of his fiery zeal against idolatry, suffered much persecution from the heathens, and was cast into prison. From thence an angel delivered him by night, and bade him go to Maximian, Bishop of Nola. This Bishop, enfeebled by old age, had at length despaired of power to withstand the torments of the persecutors, and had hidden, himself in a wood. Thither came Felix, by the will of God, and found the holy bishop lying half-dead upon the ground. He succoured him, and carried him upon his shoulders to the house of an holy widow. On another occasion, Felix, having again provoked the anger of the devil-worshippers, became an object of their pursuit, from which he hid himself in a narrow place between two walls. Hardly had he entered, when some spiders wove their webs across the entrance, which the enemy perceiving, concluded that no man had entered, and passed by. After leaving this hiding-place, Felix lay for three months in the house of an holy woman. After the Lord gave peace to His Church, the Saint returned to Nola, where he turned many to Christ by his life, his preaching, and his miracles. He steadily refused to accept the Bishopric, fell asleep in the Lord, and was buried at Nola in the place called The Pines.
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.
