Incipit
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.

Ant. The Lord, the King of Martyrs, * O come, let us worship.
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 Martyrs, * 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 Martyrs, * 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.
Ant. O come, let us worship.
Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart. And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

De Áctibus Apostolórum
Acts 20:17-24
17 A Miléto Paulus mittens Éphesum, vocávit majóres natu Ecclésiæ.
18 Qui cum veníssent ad eum, et simul essent, dixit eis: Vos scitis a prima die qua ingréssus sum in Ásiam, quáliter vobíscum per omne tempus fúerim,
19 Sérviens Dómino cum omni humilitáte, et lácrimis, et tentatiónibus, quae mihi accidérunt ex insídiis Judæórum:
20 Quómodo nihil subtráxerim utílium, quóminus annuntiárem vobis et docérem vos, públice et per domos,
21 Testíficans Judǽis atque Gentílibus in Deum pœniténtiam, et fidem in Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum.
22 Et nunc ecce alligátus ego spíritu, vado in Jerúsalem: quæ in ea ventúra sint mihi, ignórans:
23 Nisi quod Spíritus Sanctus per omnes civitátes mihi protestátur, dicens: Quóniam víncula et tribulatiónes Jerosólymis me manent.
24 Sed nihil horum véreor: nec fácio ánimam meam pretiosiórem quam me, dúmmodo consúmmem cursum meum, et ministérium verbi quod accépi a Dómino Jesu, testificári Evangélium grátiæ Dei.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Iste Sanctus pro lege Dei sui certávit usque ad mortem, et a verbis impiórum non tímuit:
* Fundátus enim erat supra firmam petram.
V. Iste est qui contémpsit vitam mundi, et pervénit ad cæléstia regna.
R. Fundátus enim erat supra firmam petram.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.

Lesson from the Acts of Apostles
Acts 20:17-24
17 And sending from Miletus to Ephesus, he called the ancients of the church.
18 And when they were come to him, and were together, he said to them: You know from the first day that I came into Asia, in what manner I have been with you, for all the time,
19 Serving the Lord with all humility, and with tears, and temptations which befell me by the conspiracies of the Jews;
20 How I have kept back nothing that was profitable to you, but have preached it to you, and taught you publicly, and from house to house,
21 Testifying both to Jews and Gentiles penance towards God, and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
22 And now, behold, being bound in the spirit, I go to Jerusalem: not knowing the things which shall befall me there:
23 Save that the Holy Ghost in every city witnesseth to me, saying: That bands and afflictions wait for me at Jerusalem.
24 But I fear none of these things, neither do I count my life more precious than myself, so that I may consummate my course and the ministry of the word which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. This man is holy, for he hath striven for the law of his God even unto death, and hath not feared for the words of the ungodly;
* For he had his foundation upon a strong rock.
V. This is he which loved not his life in this world, and is come unto an everlasting kingdom.
R. For he had his foundation upon a strong rock.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adjuváre dignétur. Amen.

Acts 20:25-31
25 Et nunc ecce ego scio quia ámplius non vidébitis fáciem meam vos omnes, per quos transívi prǽdicans regnum Dei.
26 Quaprópter contéstor vos hodiérna die, quia mundus sum a sánguine ómnium.
27 Non enim subterfúgi, quóminus annuntiárem omne consílium Dei vobis.
28 Atténdite vobis, et univérso gregi, in quo vos Spíritus Sanctus pósuit epíscopos régere Ecclésiam Dei, quam acquisívit sánguine suo.
29 Ego scio quóniam intrábunt post discessiónem meam lupi rapáces in vos, non parcéntes gregi.
30 Et ex vobis ipsis exsúrgent viri loquéntes pervérsa, ut abdúcant discípulos post se.
31 Propter quod vigiláte, memória retinéntes quóniam per triénnium nocte et die non cessávi, cum lácrimis monens unumquémque vestrum.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Justus germinábit sicut lílium:
* Et florébit in ætérnum ante Dóminum.

Acts 20:25-31
25 And now behold, I know that all you, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.
26 Wherefore I take you to witness this day, that I am clear from the blood of all men;
27 For I have not spared to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
28 Take heed to yourselves, and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
29 I know that, after my departure, ravening wolves will enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30 And of your own selves shall arise men speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
31 Therefore watch, keeping in memory, that for three years I ceased not, with tears to admonish every one of you night and day.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The righteous shall grow as the lily
* Yea, he shall flourish in the presence of the Lord for ever.
V. Those that be planted in the house of the Lord, shall flourish in the courts of the house of our God.
R. Yea, he shall flourish in the presence of the Lord for ever.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.

33 Argéntum, et aurum, aut vestem nullíus concupívi, sicut
34 Ipsi scitis: quóniam ad ea quæ mihi opus erant, et his qui mecum sunt, ministravérunt manus istæ.
35 Ómnia osténdi vobis, quóniam sic laborántes, opórtet suscípere infírmos ac meminísse verbi Dómini Jesu: quóniam ipse dixit: Beátius est magis dare, quam accípere.
36 Et cum haec dixísset, pósitis génibus suis orávit cum ómnibus illis.
37 Magnus autem fletus factus est ómnium: et procumbéntes super collum Pauli, osculabántur eum,
38 Doléntes máxime in verbo quod díxerat, quóniam ámplius fáciem ejus non essent visúri. Et deducébant eum ad navem.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Reading 3
Acts 20:32-38
32 And now I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, who is able to build up, and to give an inheritance among all the sanctified.
33 I have not coveted any man's silver, gold, or apparel, as
34 You yourselves know: for such things as were needful for me and them that are with me, these hands have furnished.
35 I have showed you all things, how that so labouring you ought to support the weak, and to remember the word of the Lord Jesus, how he said: It is a more blessed thing to give, rather than to receive.
36 And when he had said these things, kneeling down, he prayed with them all.
37 And there was much weeping among them all; and falling on the neck of Paul, they kissed him,
38 Being grieved most of all for the word which he had said, that they should see his face no more. And they brought him on his way to the ship.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. This is he which knew righteousness, and saw great wonders, and made his prayer unto the Most High
* And he is numbered among the Saints.
V. This is he which loved not his life in this world, and is come unto an everlasting kingdom.
R. And he is numbered among the Saints.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And he is numbered among the Saints.

5:8 Introíbo in domum tuam: * adorábo ad templum sanctum tuum in timóre tuo.
5:9 Dómine, deduc me in justítia tua: * propter inimícos meos dírige in conspéctu tuo viam meam.
5:10 Quóniam non est in ore eórum véritas: * cor eórum vanum est.
5:11 Sepúlcrum patens est guttur eórum, linguis suis dolóse agébant, * júdica illos, Deus.

5:2 Hearken to the voice of my prayer, * O my King and my God.
5:3 For to thee will I pray: * O Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear my voice.
5:4 In the morning I will stand before thee, and will see: * because thou art not a God that willest iniquity.
5:5 Neither shall the wicked dwell near thee: * nor shall the unjust abide before thy eyes.
5:6 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.

Jósaphat Kuncewítius, nobílibus et catholicis paréntibus Vladimíriæ in Volhinia natus, cum puerulus matrem de Christi passióne loquentem audíret, jaculo e látere imaginis Jesu crucifixi immisso, vulnus in corde suscépit. Dei amore incénsus, adeo oratióni aliisque piis opéribus instare cœpit, ut provectióribus adolescéntibus exemplo et admiratióni esset. Vicennis inter claustrales sancti Basilíi alumnos monasticam regulam proféssus, mirum quos in evangelica perfectióne progréssus fécerit. Nudis pédibus, frigidíssima licet sæviénte regiónis híeme, incedébat; carnes numquam, vinum nonnisi ex obediéntia adhibuit, asperrimoque cilício ad obitum usque corpus afflixit. Castitátis flórem, quem ab adolescéntia Virgini Deiparæ vóverat, inviolátum servávit. Virtútis doctrinæque ejus brevi sic fama percrébuit, ut, quamvis júnior, Bytenii monasterio præfectus sit mox Vilnénsis archimandríta, ac demum archiepíscopus Polocénsis, invitus quidem, sed Catholicis gestiéntibus, fúerit renuntiatus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Honéstum fecit illum Dóminus, et custodívit eum ab inimícis, et a seductóribus tutávit illum:
* Et dedit illi claritátem ætérnam.
V. Descendítque cum illo in fóveam, et in vínculis non derelíquit eum.
R. Et dedit illi claritátem ætérnam.

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

Reading 4
Josaphat Kuncewitz was born of noble Catholic parents at Vladimir in Volhynia. Once as a child, as he listed to his mother tell the story of the Passion, a dart came forth from the side of Christ on the crucifix and wounded the boy in the heart. Set on fire with love of God, he devoted himself to prayer and works of charity with such zeal that he became the admiration and the model for youths far older than he. When Josaphat was twenty years old he was professed among the cloistered followers of the monastic rule of Saint Basil. Almost at once he made remarkable progress in evangelical perfection. He went barefoot, even in the severe winters of that country. He never ate meat, and drank wine only when obliged to do so under obedience. He disciplined his body by wearing rough hair-shirts until the day of his death. He kept unspotted the flower of chastity which in his youth he had dedicated to the Virgin Mother of God. He became so celebrated for virtue and learning that despite his youth he was made superior of the monastery at Byten, and the Archimandrite of Vilnius. Finally much against his will, but to the very great joy of the Catholic people, he was made Archbishop of Polotsk.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord made him honourable, and defended him from his enemies, and kept him safe from those that lay in wait for him,
* And gave him perpetual glory.
V. He went down with him into the pit, and left him not in bonds.
R. And gave him perpetual glory.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Hac dignitate auctus, nihil de priori vivéndi ratióne remíttens, nonnisi divinum cultum et creditárum sibi óvium salútem cordi hábuit. Catholicæ unitátis ac veritátis strenuus propugnator, totis viribus adlaborávit, ut schismaticos hæreticosque ad communiónem cum beáti Petri Sede reduceret. Summum Pontificem ejusque potestátis plenitúdinem ab impudentíssimis impiórum calumniis et erróribus, qua conciónibus, qua scriptis pietáte ac doctrina refertis, defendere numquam déstitit. Episcopalem jurisdictiónem et Ecclésiæ bona a láicis usurpáta vindicávit. Incredibile dictu est quot hæreticos in sinum matris Ecclésiæ revocáverit. Uniónis vero Græcæ Ecclésiæ cum Latina Josephátum promotórem exstitisse præclaríssimum, etiam pontifícia oracula diserte testántur. Ad hæc, et templi Dei decóri instaurando, et sacrárum vírginum exstruéndis ædibus, aliisque piis opéribus juvandis, mensæ suæ proventus ultro erogávit. In páuperes adeo effúsus, ut, cum olim inópiæ cujusdam víduæ sublevandæ nihil occurreret, episcopale pallium, seu omophórion, oppignorari jusserit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Desidérium ánimæ ejus tribuísti ei Dómine,
* Et voluntáte labiórum ejus non fraudásti eum.
V. Quóniam prævenísti eum in benedictiónibus dulcédinis: posuísti in cápite ejus corónam de lápide pretióso.
R. Et voluntáte labiórum ejus non fraudásti eum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
In the years following the promotion to this dignity, Josaphat did not relax in any way his austere mode of living. Nothing was so close to his heart as service to God and the salvation of the flock entrusted to his care. He was a vigorous champion of Catholic unity and truth. He laboured to the utmost of his ability to win back schismatics and heretics to unity with the See of blessed Peter. Both by preaching and writing he defended the Supreme Pontiff and the doctrine of the Pope's plenitude of power. He directed these works, full of piety and learning against most shameful calumnies and the errors of wicked men. Josaphat vindicated episcopal rights and restored ecclesiastical property seized by laymen. He won back an incredible number of heretics to the bosom of holy Mother Church. How successfully he laboured to re-establish communion between the Greek and Latin Churches is told in Papal commendations. He gladly spent the revenues set aside for his maintenance to rebuild God's house, to erect convents for consecrated virgins, and to carry on other charitable works. So generous was Josaphat towards the poor that in one instance when he did not have money enough to supply the needs of a certain widow, he pawned his omophorion, that is, his episcopal pallium.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Lord, Thou hast given him his heart's desire.
* And hast not withholden the request of his lips.
V. For Thou hast prevented him with the blessings of sweetness: Thou hast set a crown of precious stones upon his head.
R. And hast not withholden the request of his lips.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ignem sui amóris accéndat Deus in córdibus nostris. Amen.

Tot catholicæ fidei increménta perditissimórum hóminum adeo excitavérunt odia, ut, conspiratióne ínita, Christi athletam ad necem quærerent; quam sibi imminére ipse in suo ad pópulum sermóne prænuntiávit. Cum itaque Vitépscum pastoralis visitatiónis grátia profectus esset, illi archiepiscopales invadunt ædes, obvios quosque feriunt ac cædunt. Tum vir mitíssimus quæréntibus sponte occurrit, eosque amice compellans, Filíoli, inquit, quare familiares meos cæditis? Si quid contra me habetis, ecce adsum. Hinc, ímpetu facto, eum verbéribus contundunt, telis confodiunt, ac demum, immani secúri necátum, in flumen projíciunt, die duodecima Novembris anni sexcentésimi vicesimi tertii supra millesimum, ætátis ejus quadragesimi tertii. Corpus, mirábili luce circumfusum, ex imo flúminis alveo elátum est. Sanguis Mártyris parricidis ipsis in primis prófuit, qui fere omnes, cápitis damnati, ejurato schismate, suum scelus detestáti sunt. Cum tantus Præsul plurimis post obitum coruscaret miraculis, eum Urbanus octavus, Pontifex maximus, Beatórum honóribus decorávit. Pius nonus, tertio Kalendas Julias anni millesimi octingentesimi sexagesimi septimi, cum sæcularia Apostolórum Principum solemnia celebraréntur, coram patrum cardinalium senatu, simulque astántibus fere quingentis, patriarchis, metropolítis et epíscopis cujuscúmque ritus, qui ex toto terrárum orbe convenerant; hunc ecclesiásticæ unitátis assertórem, primum ex orientálibus, solemni ritu in Vaticana basilica Sanctórum ordini accensuit. Cujus Offícium ac Missam Leo décimus tertius, summus Pontifex, ad universam exténdit Ecclésiam.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Stola jucunditátis índuit eum Dóminus:
* Et corónam pulchritúdinis pósuit super caput ejus.
V. Cibávit illum Dóminus pane vitæ et intelléctus: et aqua sapiéntiæ salutáris potávit illum.
R. Et corónam pulchritúdinis pósuit super caput ejus.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et corónam pulchritúdinis pósuit super caput ejus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Spirit's fire Divine in our hearts enkindled shine. Amen.

Reading 6
The great progress made by the Catholic faith so stirred up the anger of certain of its wicked enemies that they conspired to murder this athlete of Christ. In a sermon he foretold to his people what was about to happen. As he was setting out for Vitebsk on a pastoral visit, these enemies broke into the episcopal palace, attacking and wounding every one they found. Undaunted, this most kindly man hurried out to the assassins of his own free will and addressed them mildly. My little children, he said, why do ye strike my servants? If ye have any complaint against me, I am here. Thereupon they rushed at him, overwhelmed him with blows and pierced him through with spears. Finally they slew him a stroke of a great axe and threw his body into the river. This happened on November 12th, 1632, when he was forty-three years old. Later his body, surrounded by a marvellous light, was raised from the deepest part of the river. The blood of this Martyr benefited first of all those murderers of their spiritual father. Sentenced to die for their crime, almost all abjured their schism and repented of their crime. Because this wonderful high priest became famous after his death for many miracles, the Supreme Pontiff, Urban VIII, honoured him with the title Blessed. On the 29th of June, 1867, during the solemn observance of the centenaries of the Princes of the Apostles, in the presence of the college of cardinals, of about five hundred others, patriarchs, metropolitans, and bishops of every rite from all parts of the world, assembled in the Vatican basilica, with all solemn ceremonies, Pius IX canonized the first eastern Christian to uphold the unity of the Church. The Supreme Pontiff, Leo XIII, extended his Mass and Office to the universal Church.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord hath put on him a robe of honour,
* And put about his head a crown of joy.
V. With the bread of life and understanding hath the Lord fed him, and given him the water of health and wisdom to drink.
R. And put about his head a crown of joy.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And put about his head a crown of joy.

14:4 Nor hath done evil to his neighbour: * nor taken up a reproach against his neighbours.

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:
V. Et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem:
R. Sed líbera nos a malo.
Absolutio. A vínculis peccatórum nostrórum absólvat nos omnípotens et miséricors Dóminus. Amen.
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Joánnem.
Joannes 10:11-16
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus pharisæis: Ego sum pastor bonus. Bonus pastor animam suam dat pro ovibus suis. Et réliqua.

Homilia sancti Joannis Chrysostomi.
Hom. 59. in Joánnem.
Magnum quiddam, dilectissimi, magnum, inquam, est Ecclesiæ prælatio, et quæ multa indiget sapientia et fortitudine, qualem Christus proposuit: ut animam pro ovibus ponamus, et numquam illas deseramus: ut lupo generose resistamus. Hæc enim inter pastorem et mercenarium est differentia. Alter propriæ, contemptis ovibus: alter, sua contempta, ovium semper saluti invigilat. Pastoris ergo exemplo demonstrato, deceptores duos meminit; furem mactantem et rapientem oves; et mercenarium permittentem, neque defendentem comissas.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Coróna áurea super caput ejus,
* Expréssa signo sanctitátis, glória honóris, et opus fortitúdinis.
V. Quóniam prævenísti eum in benedictiónibus dulcédinis, posuísti in cápite ejus corónam de lápide pretióso.
R. Expréssa signo sanctitátis, glória honóris, et opus fortitúdinis.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Gospel's holy lection be our safety and protection. Amen.

Reading 7
From the Holy Gospel according to John
John 10:11-16
In that time Jesus said to the pharisees: I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd giveth his life for his sheep. And so on.

Homily by St. John Chrysostom, Patriarch of Constantinople.
59th on John.
Dearly beloved brethren, the Bishops of the Church hold a great office, an office that needeth much that wisdom and strength whereof Christ hath given us an example. We must learn of Him to lay down our lives for the sheep and never to leave them; and to fight bravely against the wolf. This is the difference between the true shepherd and the hireling. The one leaveth the sheep and seeketh his own safety, but the other recketh not of his own safety, so as he may watch over the sheep. Christ then having given us the pattern of a good shepherd, warneth us against two enemies; first, the thief that cometh not but to kill and to steal, and, secondly, the hireling that standeth by, and defendeth not them that are committed to his charge.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. A crown of gold upon his head,
* Wherein is engraved Holiness, an ornament of honour, a costly work.
V. For Thou hast prevented him with the blessings of sweetness, Thou hast set a crown of precious stones upon his head.
R. Wherein is engraved Holiness, an ornament of honour, a costly work.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Quod superiori tempore Ezechiel his verbis insectatus est: Væ pastoribus Israël: nonne pascebant semetipsos? nonne greges pascuntur a pastoribus? Sed illi contrarium faciebant, quod maximæ malitiæ genus est, et plurimorum causa malorum. Idcirco inquit: Neque quod abjectum erat, reducebant: neque quod perierat quærebant: neque confractum alligabant: neque infirmum consolidabant: quoniam se, non gregem pascebant. Idem et Paulus aliis verbis significat: Omnes quæ sua sunt, quærunt, non quæ Jesu Christi.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Hic est vere Martyr, qui pro Christi nómine sánguinem suum fudit:
* Qui minas júdicum non tímuit, nec terrénæ dignitátis glóriam quæsívit, sed ad cæléstia regna pervénit.
V. Justum dedúxit Dóminus per vias rectas, et osténdit illi regnum Dei.
R. Qui minas júdicum non tímuit, nec terrénæ dignitátis glóriam quæsívit, sed ad cæléstia regna pervénit.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Qui minas júdicum non tímuit, nec terrénæ dignitátis glóriam quæsívit, sed ad cæléstia regna pervénit.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
Ezechiel hath said of old time, xxxiv. 2: Woe be to the shepherds of Israel! do they not feed themselves? Should not the shepherds feed the flocks? But they did the contrary, a great wickedness and the root of many evils. Therefore, he saith, they brought not back that which was gone astray neither did they search for that which was lost neither did they bind up that which was broken, nor strengthen that which was sick; for they fed themselves, and not the flock. And Paul hath the same in other words, where he saith, Phil. ii. 21: All seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. This is a Martyr indeed, who shed his blood for Christ's Name's sake
* Who feared not for the threats of judges, nor sought to be great with the glory of this world, but pressed on unto the kingdom of heaven.
V. The Lord guided the righteous in right paths, and showed him the kingdom of God.
R. Who feared not for the threats of judges, nor sought to be great with the glory of this world, but pressed on unto the kingdom of heaven.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Who feared not for the threats of judges, nor sought to be great with the glory of this world, but pressed on unto the kingdom of heaven.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Verum ab utroque se dissidere ostendit Christus: ab illis quidem, qui in aliorum perniciem veniunt, cum dicat, se propterea venisse, ut vitam haberent et abundantius haberent: ab his autem, qui oves a lupis rapi negligebant, dicendo se propter eas animam ponere, ne oves perirent. Nam cum Judæi ipsum interimere vellent non propterea destitit a doctrina, neque credentes tradidit, sed perstitit, et pertulit mortem: ideo frequenter inquit: Ego sum pastor bonus. Quæ cum nullo niti testimonio viderentur (quod enim poneret animam suam, non multo post re demonstratum est; quod autem vitam haberent et abundantius haberent, eventurum erat in futuro sæculo) alterum ab altero confirmat.
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.

Reading 9
Christ showeth Himself very different from either the thief or the hireling; whereas the thief cometh to destroy, He came that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. The hireling fleeth, but He layeth down His life for the sheep, that the sheep perish not. When then the Jews went about to kill Him, He ceased not to teach He gave not up them that believed in Him, but stood steadfast and died. Wherefore He hath good title often to say, I am the Good Shepherd. It was but a little while, and He showed us how He could lay down His life for the sheep. And if it appeareth not as yet how they have life, and have it more abundantly, (but it shall appear, in the world which is to come,) we may well be persuaded of the truth of the second promise, who have seen the fulfilment of the first.
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.
