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;

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
Hujus diéi témpore
Horis quiétis psállimus,
Donis beátis múneret.

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

Ne fœda sit, vel lúbrica
Compágo nostri córporis,
Ob cujus 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. 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.

1:3 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.

Psalm 2 [2]
2:1 Why have the Gentiles raged, * and the people devised vain things?

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.

11 Et dixit Dániel ad Málasar, quem constitúerat princeps eunuchórum super Daniélem, Ananíam, Misaélem et Azaríam:
12 Ténta nos, óbsecro, servos tuos, diébus decem, et déntur nobis legúmina ad vescéndum, et aqua ad bibéndum:
13 Et contempláre vultus nostros, et vultus puerórum, qui vescúntur cibo regio: et, sicut víderis, fácies cum servis tuis.

Reading 3
Dan 1:10-15
10 And the prince of the eunuchs said to Daniel: I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed you meat and drink: who if he should see your faces leaner than those of the other youths your equals, you shall endanger my head to the king.
11 And Daniel said to Malasar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had appointed over Daniel, Ananias, Misael, and Azarias:
12 Try, I beseech thee, thy servants for ten days, and let pulse be given us to eat, and water to drink:
13 And look upon our faces, and the faces of the children that eat of the king's meat: and as thou shalt see, deal with thy servants.
14 And when he had heard these words, he tried them for ten days.
15 And after ten days their faces appeared fairer and fatter than all the children that ate of the king's meat.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Consider, O Lord, how that the city sitteth solitary that was full of riches; how is she become as a widow, she that was great among the nations;
* She hath none to comfort her, save thee, O our God.
V. She weepeth sore in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks.
R. She hath none to comfort her, save thee, O our God.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. She hath none to comfort her, save thee, O our God.

8:8 Thou hast subjected all things under his feet, * all sheep and oxen: moreover the beasts also of the fields.
8:9 The birds of the air, and the fishes of the sea, * that pass through the paths of the sea.

9:2 I will give praise to thee, O Lord, with my whole heart: * I will relate all thy wonders.
9:3 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: * I will sing to thy name, O thou most high.
9:4 When my enemy shall be turned back: * they shall be weakened and perish before thy face.
9:5 For thou hast maintained my judgment and my cause: * thou hast sat on the throne, who judgest justice.
9:6 Thou hast rebuked the Gentiles, and the wicked one hath perished: * thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever.
9:7 The swords of the enemy have failed unto the end: * and their cities thou hast destroyed.
9:8 Their memory hath perished with a noise. * But the Lord remaineth for ever.
9:9 He hath prepared his throne in judgment: * And he shall judge the world in equity, he shall judge the people in justice.

Ex libro sancti Athanasii Epíscopi ad Vírgines
Liber de Virginitate, post initium.
Si accedant aliqui, e dicant tibi: Ne frequenter jejúnes, ne imbecillior fias; ne credas illis, neque auscultes: per istos enim inimícus hæc súggerit. Reminíscere ejus quod scriptum est, quod, cum tres púeri, et Daniel, et alii adolescentuli, captívi ducti essent a Nabuchodónosor rege Babylónis, jussumque esset ut de ipsíus mensa regia coméderent et de vino bíberent; Daniel et tres púeri illi noluérunt pollui ex mensa regis, sed dixérunt eunucho qui eos curándos susceperat: Da nobis de semínibus terræ, et vescemur. Quibus ait eunuchus: Timeo ego regem, qui constítuit vobis cibum et potum, ne forte fácies vestræ appareant regi squalidiores præ ceteris púeris qui regia mensa alúntur, et puniat me.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Super muros tuos, Jerúsalem, constítui custódes;
* Tota die et nocte non tacébunt laudáre nomen Dómini.
V. Prædicábunt pópulis fortitúdinem meam, et annuntiábunt géntibus glóriam meam.
R. Tota die et nocte non tacébunt laudáre nomen Dómini.

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

Reading 4
From the Book addressed To Virgins by St. Athanasius, Pope of Alexandria.
Bk. ii.
If any should come and say unto thee, Fast not so often, lest thou injure thine health, believe them not,neither listen to them. They are but the tools of the great enemy to suggest such a thing unto thee. Remember how it is written that when the three children, and Daniel, and the other lads, were led captives by Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon, and it was commanded them to eat of his Royal table, and to drink of his wine, Daniel and those three children would not defile themselves with the King's table, but said unto the eunuch into whose keeping they had been given, Give us of the fruits of the earth, and we will eat. And the eunuch answered them, I fear my lord the King, who hath appointed your meat and your drink, lest perchance your faces should appear unto the King worse - liking than the other children, who are fed from his Royal table, and he should punish me.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem;
* Which shall never hold their peace day nor night, to praise the name of the Lord.
V. They shall proclaim My might unto the nations, and declare My glory unto the Gentiles.
R. Which shall never hold their peace day nor night, to praise the name of the Lord.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Cui dixérunt illi: Ténta servos tuos dies decem, et da nobis de semínibus. Et dedit eis legúmina ad vescéndum, et aquam ad bibéndum; et introduxit eos in conspéctu regis, et visæ sunt fácies ipsórum speciosiores præter ceteros púeros, qui regiæ mensæ cibis nutriebántur. Videsne quid fáciat jejunium? Morbos sanat, distillatiónes corporis exsiccat, dæmones fugat, pravas cogitatiónes expellit, méntem clariórem reddit, cor mundum efficit, corpus sanctificat, dénique ad thronum Dei hóminem sistit. Et ne putes hæc témere dici; habes hujus rei testimónium in Evangéliis a Salvatore prolátum. Cum enim quæsivissent discípuli quonam modo immundi spíritus ejiceréntur, respóndit Dóminus: Hoc genus non ejícitur, nisi in oratióne et jejúnio.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Muro tuo inexpugnábili circumcínge nos, Dómine, et armis tuæ poténtiæ prótege nos semper:
* Líbera, Dómine, Deus Israël, clamántes ad te.
V. Erue nos in mirabílibus tuis, et da glóriam nómini tuo.
R. Líbera, Dómine, Deus Israël, clamántes ad te.

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

Reading 5
Then they said unto him Prove thy servants ten days, and give us herbs. And he gave them pulse to eat and water to drink and, when he brought them in before the King, their countenances appeared fairer than all the children which did eat the portion of the King's meat. Seest thou what fasting doth It healeth diseases, it drieth up the humours of the body, it scareth away devils, it purgeth forth unclean thoughts, it maketh the intellect clearer, it purifieth the heart, it sanctifieth the body, and in the end it leadeth a man unto the throne of God. Think not that this is rash talking. Thou hast the testimony of this in the Gospels under the sanction of the Saviour Himself. His disciples asked Him why they could not cast out an evil spirit, and He said unto them This kind can come forth by nothing but by prayer and fasting. Mark ix. 28.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Hedge us about with thy wall that cannot be broken down, O Lord, and shield us continually with the arms of thy might.
* O Lord God of Israel, deliver them that cry unto thee.
V. Deliver us also according to thy marvellous works, and give glory to thy Name.
R. O Lord God of Israel, deliver them that cry unto thee.

Quisquis ígitur ab immundo spíritu vexátur, si hoc animadvertat, et hoc phármaco utátur, jejúnio inquam, statim spíritus malus oppréssus abscedet, vim jejunii metuens. Valde enim dæmones oblectántur crápula et ebrietáte et corporis cómmodis. Magna vis in jejúnio, et magna ac præclára fiunt per illud. Alioquin unde hómines tam mirífica præstarent, et signa per eos fíerent, et sanitátem infirmis per ipsos largirétur Deus, nisi plane ob exercitatiónes spirituales, et humilitátem animi, et conversatiónem bonam? Jejunium enim Angelórum cibus est: et qui eo utitur, ordinis angelici censendus est.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Sustinúimus pacem, et non venit: quæsívimus bona, et ecce turbátio: cognóvimus, Dómine, peccáta nostra;
* Non in perpétuum obliviscáris nos.
V. Peccávimus, ímpie géssimus, iniquitátem fécimus, Dómine, in omnem justítiam tuam.
R. Non in perpétuum obliviscáris nos.

Benediction. May the Spirit's fire Divine in our hearts enkindled shine. Amen.

Reading 6
If any man therefore be troubled with an unclean spirit, if he bethink him of this, and have recourse to this remedy, namely, fasting, the evil spirit will be forthwith compelled to leave him from dread of the power of fasting. Devils take great delight in fulness, and drunkenness, and bodily comfort. There is great power in fasting, and great and glorious things are wrought thereby. How cometh it that men work such wonders, and that signs are done by them, and that God through them giveth health to the sick, unless it be from their ghostly exercises, and the meekness of their souls, and their godly conversation To fast is to banquet with Angels, and he that fasteth is to be reckoned, so far, among the Angelic host.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. We looked for peace, and it came not we asked for good, and behold trouble. We acknowledge, O Lord, our wickedness.
* Forget us not for ever.
V. O Lord (our God) we have sinned, we have done ungodly, we have dealt unrighteously in all thine ordinances.
R. Forget us not for ever.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Forget us not for ever.

9:25 Exacerbávit Dóminum peccátor, * secúndum multitúdinem iræ suæ non quǽret.
9:26 Non est Deus in conspéctu ejus: * inquinátæ sunt viæ illíus in omni témpore.
9:26 Auferúntur judícia tua a fácie ejus: * ómnium inimicórum suórum dominábitur.
9:27 Dixit enim in corde suo: * Non movébor a generatióne in generatiónem sine malo.

Ant. Why, O Lord,
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.

9:35 Thou seest it, for thou considerest labour and sorrow: * that thou mayst deliver them into thy hands.
9:35 To thee is the poor man left: * thou wilt be a helper to the orphan.
9:36 Break thou the arm of the sinner and of the malignant: * his sin shall be sought, and shall not be found.
9:37 The Lord shall reign to eternity, yea, for ever and ever: * ye Gentiles shall perish from his land.
9:38 The Lord hath heard the desire of the poor: * thy ear hath heard the preparation of their heart.

Psalm 10 [9]
10:2 In the Lord I put my trust: how then do you say to my soul: * Get thee away from hence to the mountain, like a sparrow?
10:3 For, lo, the wicked have bent their bow: they have prepared their arrows in the quiver, * to shoot in the dark the upright of heart.
10:4 For they have destroyed the things which thou hast made: * but what has the just man done?
10:5 The Lord is in his holy temple, * the Lord’s throne is in heaven.
10:5 His eyes look on the poor man: * his eyelids examine the sons of men.
10:6 The Lord trieth the just and the wicked: * but he that loveth iniquity, hateth his own soul.

In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus turbis parábolam hanc: Simile factum est regnum cælórum hómini, qui seminávit bonum semen in agro suo. Et réliqua.

Homilía S. Augustíni Epíscopi
Liber Quæst. Evang. in Matth. cap. 11, tom. 4
Cum negligéntius ágerent præpósiti Ecclésiæ, aut cum dormitiónem mórtis accíperent Apóstoli, venit diabólus, et superseminávit eos, quos malos fílios Dóminus interpretátur. Sed quǽritur: utrum hærétici sint, an male vivéntes cathólici? Possunt enim dici fílii mali étiam hærétici, quia ex eódem Evangélii sémine, et Christi nómine procreáti, pravis opiniónibus ad falsa dógmata convertúntur.

From the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 13:24-30
At that time, Jesus said to the people a parable: The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man that sowed good seeds in his field. And so on.

Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
Quest. Evang. Matth. xi, Bk. 4
When the Shepherds of the Church wax careless, and since the Apostles sleep the sleep of death, cometh the devil, and soweth them whom the Lord calleth a seed of evil-doers. Now, are these seed of evil-doers the heretics, or Catholics of bad lives? It is possible to call even the heretics a seed of evil-doers because they have sprung up from the seed of the Gospel, and been begotten in the Name of Christ, though afterwards they have turned after crooked ways and lying doctrines.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Blessed is the people
* Whom the Lord of hosts hath blessed, saying O Israel thou art the work of Mine own hands, thou art Mine own inheritance.

Sed quod dicit eos in médio trítici seminatos, quasi vidéntur illi significari, qui uníus communiónis sunt. Verúmtamen quóniam Dóminus agrum ipsum, non Ecclésiam, sed hunc mundum interpretátus est: bene intelligúntur hærétici, quia non societáte uníus Ecclésiæ, vel uníus fidei, sed societáte solíus nóminis christiáni in hoc mundo permiscéntur bonis. At illi, qui in eádem fide mali sunt, pálea pótius quam zizánia reputántur: quia pálea étiam fundaméntum ipsum habet cum fruménto, radicémque communem.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Duo Séraphim clamábant alter ad álterum:
* Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth: * Plena est omnis terra glória ejus.
V. Tres sunt qui testimónium dant in cælo: Pater, Verbum, et Spíritus Sanctus: et hi tres unum sunt.
R. Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Plena est omnis terra glória ejus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 8
But whereas it is written that they were sown in the midst of the wheat, we ought haply to understand that they are of one communion with the righteous. Nevertheless, forasmuch as the Lord saith, The field is the world, (and not, the Church,) we may well understand that the seed of evil doers are the heretics, since in this world they are mingled together with the good, not in one common Communion, but only under one common name of Christian. But they which are of one faith with the good seed, and yet are themselves worthless, may more fitly be likened to straw than to tares, since the straw springeth from one soil and one root with the good ear.
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.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
In illa plane sagéna, qua concludúntur et mali et boni pisces, non absurde mali cathólici intelligúntur. Aliud est enim mare, quod magis mundum istum signíficat: aliud sagéna, quæ uníus fidei, vel uníus Ecclésiæ communiónem vidétur osténdere. Inter hæréticos et malos cathólicos hoc ínterest, quod hæretici falsa credunt: illi autem, vera credéntes, non vivunt ita ut credunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Sequens versus dicitur flexis genibus
Te ergo quǽsumus, tuis fámulis súbveni, * quos pretióso sánguine redemísti.

Miserére nostri, Dómine, * miserére nostri.
Fiat misericórdia tua, Dómine, super nos, * quemádmodum sperávimus in te.
In te, Dómine, sperávi: * non confúndar in ætérnum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 9
However, as touching the net cast into the sea, and enclosing a great multitude of fishes, both bad and good, we may well understand that by the bad are meant Catholics of bad lives. For the sea is one thing whereby we may understand to be signified the world; and the net another, which seemeth to signify our faith, or the Communion of one Church. Between heretics and sinful Catholics there is this difference, that heretics believe a lie, and sinful Catholics believe the truth, but live not as they believe.
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.
