Ant. Quóniam ipse fecit nos.
Quóniam ipsíus est mare, et ipse fecit illud, et áridam fundavérunt manus eius (genuflectitur) veníte, adorémus, et procidámus ante Deum: plorémus coram Dómino, qui fecit nos, quia ipse est Dóminus, Deus noster; nos autem pópulus eius, et oves páscuæ eius.

Ant. Let us adore the Lord * He is our Creator.

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. Let us adore the Lord * He is our Creator.
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. He is our Creator.
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. Let us adore the Lord * He is our Creator.
Today if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts: As in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness: where your fathers tempted me, they proved me, and saw my works.
Ant. He is our Creator.
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. Let us adore the Lord * He is our Creator.
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.

Hymnus {ex Psalterio secundum tempora}
Primo die, quo Trínitas
Beáta mundum cóndidit,
Vel quo resúrgens Cónditor
Nos, morte victa, líberat:

Pulsis procul torpóribus,
Surgámus omnes ócius,
Et nocte quærámus Deum,
Prophéta sicut prǽcipit:

Nostras preces ut áudiat
Suámque dextram pórrigat,
Et expiátos sórdibus
Reddat polórum sédibus:

Ut, quique sacratíssimo
Huius diéi témpore
Horis quiétis psállimus,
Donis beátis múneret.

Iam nunc, patérna cláritas,
Te postulámus áffatim:
Absint faces libídinis,
Et omnis actus nóxius.

Ne fœda sit, vel lúbrica
Compágo nostri córporis,
Ob cuius ignes ígnibus
Avérnus urat ácrius.

Mundi Redémptor, quǽsumus,
Tu probra nostra díluas;
Nobísque largus cómmoda
Vitæ perénnis cónferas.

* Præsta, Pater piíssime,
Patríque compar Únice,
Cum Spíritu Paráclito
Regnans per omne sǽculum.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
Hail day! whereon the One in Three
First formed the earth by sure decree,
The day its Maker rose again,
And vanquished death, and burst our chain.

Away with sleep and slothful ease
We raise our hearts and bend our knees,
And early seek the Lord of all,
Obedient to the Prophet's call.

That He may hearken to our prayer,
Stretch forth His strong right arm to spare,
And ev'ry past offense forgiven,
Restore us to our home in heaven.

Assembled here this holy day,
This holiest hour we raise the lay,
And O that He to whom we sing,
May now reward our offering!

O Father of unclouded light!
Keep us this day as in thy sight,
In word and deed that we may be
From ev'ry touch of evil free.

That this our body's mortal frame
May know no sin, and fear no shame,
Nor fire hereafter be the end
Of passions which our bosom rend.

Redeemer of the world, we pray
That thou wouldst wash our sins away,
And give us, of Thy boundless grace,
The blessings of the heavenly place.

Most Holy Father, hear our cry,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord most High
Who, with the Holy Ghost and thee
Shall live and reign eternally.
Amen.

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

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.

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.

9:7 Inimíci defecérunt frámeæ in finem: * et civitátes eórum destruxísti.
9:8 Périit memória eórum cum sónitu: * et Dóminus in ætérnum pérmanet.

9:10 Et factus est Dóminus refúgium páuperi: * adiútor in opportunitátibus, in tribulatióne.

9:13 Quóniam requírens sánguinem eórum recordátus est: * non est oblítus clamórem páuperum.
9:14 Miserére mei, Dómine: * vide humilitátem meam de inimícis meis.
9:15 Qui exáltas me de portis mortis, * ut annúntiem omnes laudatiónes tuas in portis fíliæ Sion.
9:16 Exsultábo in salutári tuo: * infíxæ sunt gentes in intéritu, quem fecérunt.
9:16 In láqueo isto, quem abscondérunt, * comprehénsus est pes eórum.
9:17 Cognoscétur Dóminus iudícia fáciens: * in opéribus mánuum suárum comprehénsus est peccátor.
9:18 Convertántur peccatóres in inférnum, * omnes gentes quæ obliviscúntur Deum.
9:19 Quóniam non in finem oblívio erit páuperis: * patiéntia páuperum non períbit in finem.

9:15 Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death, * that I may declare all thy praises in the gates of the daughter of Sion.

Psalmus 9(22-32) [7]
9:22 Ut quid, Dómine, recessísti longe, * déspicis in opportunitátibus, in tribulatióne?
9:23 Dum supérbit ímpius, incénditur pauper: * comprehendúntur in consíliis quibus cógitant.
9:24 Quóniam laudátur peccátor in desidériis ánimæ suæ: * et iníquus benedícitur.
9:25 Exacerbávit Dóminum peccátor, * secúndum multitúdinem iræ suæ non quǽret.
9:26 Non est Deus in conspéctu eius: * inquinátæ sunt viæ illíus in omni témpore.
9:26 Auferúntur iudícia tua a fácie eius: * ómnium inimicórum suórum dominábitur.
9:27 Dixit enim in corde suo: * Non movébor a generatióne in generatiónem sine malo.
9:28 Cuius maledictióne os plenum est, et amaritúdine, et dolo: * sub lingua eius labor et dolor.
9:29 Sedet in insídiis cum divítibus in occúltis: * ut interfíciat innocéntem.
9:30 Óculi eius in páuperem respíciunt: * insidiátur in abscóndito, quasi leo in spelúnca sua.
9:30 Insidiátur ut rápiat páuperem: * rápere páuperem, dum áttrahit eum.
9:31 In láqueo suo humiliábit eum: * inclinábit se, et cadet, cum dominátus fúerit páuperum.
9:32 Dixit enim in corde suo: Oblítus est Deus, * avértit fáciem suam ne vídeat in finem.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Ut quid, Dómine, recessísti lónge?
Ant. Why, O Lord, * hast thou retired afar off?
Psalm 9(22-32) [7]
9:22 Why, O Lord, hast thou retired afar off? * why dost thou slight us in our wants, in the time of trouble?
9:23 Whilst the wicked man is proud, the poor is set on fire: * they are caught in the counsels which they devise.
9:24 For the sinner is praised in the desires of his soul: * and the unjust man is blessed.
9:25 The sinner hath provoked the Lord, * according to the multitude of his wrath he will not seek him.
9:26 God is not before his eyes: * his ways are filthy at all times.
9:26 Thy judgments are removed from his sight: * he shall rule over all his enemies.
9:27 For he hath said in his heart: * I shall not be moved from generation to generation, and shall be without evil.
9:28 His mouth is full of cursing, and of bitterness, and of deceit: * under his tongue are labour and sorrow.
9:29 He sitteth in ambush with the rich, in private places, * that he may kill the innocent.
9:30 His eyes are upon the poor man: * he lieth in wait, in secret, like a lion in his den.
9:30 He lieth in ambush, that he may catch the poor man: * so catch the poor, whilst he draweth him to him.
9:31 In his net he will bring him down, * he will crouch and fall, when he shall have power over the poor.
9:32 For he hath said in his heart: God hath forgotten, * he hath turned away his face, not to see to the end.
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. Why, O Lord, hast thou retired afar off?
Ant. Exsúrge, * Dómine Deus, exaltétur manus tua.
Psalmus 9(33-39) [8]
9:33 Exsúrge, Dómine Deus, exaltétur manus tua: * ne obliviscáris páuperum.
9:34 Propter quid irritávit ímpius Deum? * dixit enim in corde suo: Non requíret.
9:35 Vides quóniam tu labórem et dolórem consíderas: * ut tradas eos in manus tuas.
9:35 Tibi derelíctus est pauper: * órphano tu eris adiútor.
9:36 Cóntere brácchium peccatóris et malígni: * quærétur peccátum illíus, et non inveniétur.
9:37 Dóminus regnábit in ætérnum, et in sǽculum sǽculi: * períbitis, gentes, de terra illíus.
9:38 Desidérium páuperum exaudívit Dóminus: * præparatiónem cordis eórum audívit auris tua.
9:39 Iudicáre pupíllo et húmili, * ut non appónat ultra magnificáre se homo super terram.

2 Mac 1:18-19
18 Factúri ígitur quinta et vigésima die mensis Cásleu, purificatiónem templi, necessárium dúximus significáre vobis: ut et vos quoque agátis diem scenopégiæ, et diem ignis, qui datus est quando Nehemías, ædificáto templo et altári, óbtulit sacrifícia.
19 Nam, cum in Pérsidem duceréntur patres nostri, sacerdótes qui tunc cultóres Dei erant, accéptum ignem de altári occúlte abscondérunt in valle, ubi erat púteus altus et siccus, et in eo contutáti sunt eum, ita ut ómnibus ignótus esset locus.
2 Mac 1:20-22
20 Cum autem præteríssent anni multi, et plácuit Deo ut mitterétur Nehemías a rege Pérsidis, nepótes sacerdótum illórum, qui abscónderant, misit ad requiréndum ignem: et, sicut narravérunt nobis, non invenérunt ignem, sed aquam crassam.
21 Et iussit eos hauríre, et afférre sibi: et sacrifícia, quæ impósita erant, iussit sacérdos Nehemías aspérgi ipsa aqua: et ligna et quæ erant superpósita.
22 Utque hoc factum est, et tempus áffuit quo sol refúlsit, quo prius erat in núbilo, accénsus est ignis magnus, ita ut omnes miraréntur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Congregáti sunt inimíci nostri, et gloriántur in virtúte sua: cóntere fortitúdinem illórum, Dómine, et dispérge illos:
* Ut cognóscant quia non est álius qui pugnet pro nobis, nisi tu, Deus noster.
V. Dispérge illos in virtúte tua, et déstrue eos, protéctor noster, Dómine.
R. Ut cognóscant quia non est álius qui pugnet pro nobis, nisi tu, Deus noster.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Ut cognóscant quia non est álius qui pugnet pro nobis, nisi tu, Deus noster.

2 Mac 1:18-19
18 Therefore whereas we purpose to keep the purification of the temple on the five and twentieth day of the month of Casleu, we thought it necessary to signify it to you: that you also may keep the day of Scenopegia, and the day of the fire, that was given when Nehemias offered sacrifice, after the temple and the altar was built.
19 For when our fathers were led in Persia, the priests that then were worshippers of God took privately the fire from the altar, and hid it in a valley where there was a deep pit without water, and there they kept it safe, so that the place was unknown to all men.
2 Mac 1:20-22
20 But when many years had passed, and it pleased God that Nehemias should be sent by the king of Persia, he sent some of the posterity of those priests that had hid it, to seek for the fire: and as they told us, they found no fire, but thick water.
21 Then he bade them draw it up, and bring it to him: and the priest Nehemias commanded the sacrifices that were laid on, to be sprinkled with the same water, both the wood, and the things that were laid upon it.
22 And when this was done, and the time came that the sun shone out, which before was in a cloud, there was a great fire kindled, so that all wondered.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Our enemies are gathered together, and make their boast of their own strength. O Lord, break their power, and scatter them
* That they may know that there is none other that fighteth for us, but only Thou, O our God!
V. Scatter them in thy strength, and destroy them, O Lord our Shield.
R. That they may know that there is none other that fighteth for us, but only Thou, O our God!
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. That they may know that there is none other that fighteth for us, but only Thou, O our God!
V. Iube, Dómine, benedícere.
Benedictio. Per evangélica dicta, deleántur nostra delícta. Amen.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Ioánnem
Ioannes 4:46-53
In illo témpore: Erat quidam régulus, cuius fílius infirmabátur Caphárnaum. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Gregórii Papæ
Homilia 28 in Evangelia
Léctio sancti Evangélii, quam modo, fratres, audístis, expositióne non índiget: sed ne hanc táciti præteriísse videámur, exhortándo pótius quam exponéndo in ea áliquid loquámur. Hoc autem nobis solúmmodo de expositióne vídeo esse requiréndum, cur is, qui ad salútem fílio peténdam vénerat, audívit: Nisi signa et prodígia vidéritis, non créditis. Qui enim salútem fílio quærébat, proculdúbio credébat; neque enim ab eo quǽreret salútem, quem non créderet Salvatórem. Quare ergo dícitur: Nisi signa et prodígia vidéritis, non créditis: qui ante crédidit, quam signa vidéret?
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Te per orbem terrárum * sancta confitétur Ecclésia,

Tu Rex glóriæ, * Christe.

Tu, ad liberándum susceptúrus hóminem: * non horruísti Vírginis úterum.

Tu, devícto mortis acúleo, * aperuísti credéntibus regna cælórum.

Et rege eos, * et extólle illos usque in ætérnum.
Per síngulos dies * benedícimus te.

Fit reverentia, secundum consuetudinem
Et laudámus nomen tuum in sǽculum, * et in sǽculum sǽculi.

Dignáre, Dómine, die isto * sine peccáto nos custodíre.
Miserére nostri, Dómine, * miserére nostri.
Fiat misericórdia tua, Dómine, super nos, * quemádmodum sperávimus in te.
In te, Dómine, sperávi: * non confúndar in ætérnum.

From the Holy Gospel according to John
John 4:46-53
At that time: There was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. And so on.

Homily by Pope St. Gregory the Great.
28th Homily on the Gospels
My brethren, the passage from the Holy Gospel, which ye have just now heard, standeth in need of no explanation. But lest I should seem to pass the same by in idle silence, I will say somewhat thereon, but that rather by way of exhortation than of explanation. Indeed, there seemeth to me to be but one point which calleth for explanation, and that point is this Wherefore was it that when the nobleman went unto the Lord, and besought Him that He would come down and heal his son, Jesus said unto him: “Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.” The very fact that he had come to beseech Christ to heal his son, putteth it beyond all doubt that this nobleman believed if he had not believed Him to be a Saviour, he would not have asked Him to save his son. Wherefore then said Jesus unto him: "Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe," since he was one who had not seen, and yet had believed?
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.
