Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * 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 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.
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}
Iste Conféssor Dómini, coléntes
Quem pie laudant pópuli per orbem,
Hac die lætus méruit suprémos
Laudis honóres.

Qui pius, prudens, húmilis, pudícus,
Sóbriam duxit sine labe vitam,
Donec humános animávit auræ
Spíritus artus.

Cujus ob præstans méritum, frequénter,
Ægra quæ passim jacuére membra,
Víribus morbi dómitis, salúti
Restituúntur.

Noster hinc illi chorus obsequéntem
Cóncinit laudem celebrésque palmas,
Ut piis ejus précibus juvémur
Omne per ævum.

Sit salus illi, decus atque virtus,
Qui, super cæli sólio corúscans,
Totíus mundi sériem gubérnat,
Trinus et unus.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
This the confessor of the Lord, whose triumph
Now all the faithful celebrate, with gladness
On this feast day year by year receiveth
Merited honors.

Saintly and prudent, modest in behaviour,
Peaceful and sober, chaste was he, and lowly.
While that life’s vigour, coursing through his members,
Quickened his being.

Sick ones of old time, to his tomb resorting,
Sorely by ailments manifold afflicted,
Oft-times have welcomed health and strength returning,
At his petition.

Whence we in chorus gladly do him honour,
Chanting his praises with devout affection,
That in his merits we may have a portion,
Now and forever.

His be the glory, power and salvation,
Who over all things reigneth in the highest,
Earth’s mighty fabric ruling and directing,
Onely and Trinal.
Amen.

36:27 Declína a malo, et fac bonum: * et inhábita in sǽculum sǽculi.

Petrus, qui ob auream ejus eloquéntiam Chrysólogi cognomen adeptus est, Foro Cornelii in Æmília honestis paréntibus natus, a prima ætate animum ad religiónem adjíciens, Cornelio Romano, tunc ejusdem urbis Corneliénsis episcopo, operam dedit: a quo etiam, sciéntia et vitæ sanctitáte cum brevi profecísset, diaconus creátus est. Postmodum contigit, ut Ravennates ob mortem archipræsulis sui alium (ut moris erat) ab eis eléctum Romam ad sanctum Xystum Papam tertium pro confirmatióne miserint una cum legátis suis et cum prædicto Cornelio, qui eumdem levitam secum perdúxit. Interim sanctus Petrus Apóstolus, et Martyr Apollináris summo Pontifici in somnis apparuérunt, médiumque habéntes hunc juvenem, jussérunt, ut illum, et non alium, in archiepiscopum Ravennæ crearet. Hinc Pontifex, mox ut vidit Petrum, cognóvit eum a Dómino eo præeléctum: proptérea, rejecto illo quem ipsi offerébant, hunc solum, anno Christi quadringentésimo trigesimo tertio, illi metropolitanæ præfecit ecclésiæ. Quod cum legáti Ravennatenses ægre ferrent, audíta visióne, divinæ voluntáti libenter acquiescéntes, novum archiepiscopum maxima cum reveréntia suscepérunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

Reading 4
Peter, called in Greek Chrysologos, or, of the golden words, on account of his wonderful eloquence, was born of respectable parents at Imola, near Ravenna. He displayed a very early leaning to godliness, and became a disciple of Cornelius of Rome, Bishop of Imola. This Prelate, having experience of his learning and holiness of life, soon ordained him Deacon. On the death of the Archbishop of Ravenna, the people of that place elected a successor, and sent him, according to custom, to Rome, to be confirmed in his appointment by Pope Sixtus III. The Archbishop elect accordingly set forth, along with the ambassadors of the people of Ravenna and Cornelius, Bishop of Imola, attended by Peter the Deacon. While they were yet on the way, the holy Apostle Peter and Apollinaris the Martyr appeared to the Supreme Pontiff in a dream, leading a young man between them, whom they commanded him to make Archbishop. As soon as the embassy arrived at Rome the Pope knew in Peter the young man of his dream, chosen of God to the Archbishopric. Wherefore he set aside him that the people of Ravenna had presented, and preferred Peter to that Metropolitan Church, in the year of our Lord, 433. The ambassadors of the people of Ravenna took it ill, till they heard the vision then they gave themselves up to the will of God, and received the new Archbishop with great reverence.
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.

Petrus ígitur, licet invitus, in archipræsulem consecratus, Ravennam dedúcitur; ubi a Valentiniáno imperatóre, et a Galla Placidia ejus matre, ac ab universo pópulo maxima lætítia exceptus est. Et ille ab eis id unum pétere dixit, ut quando tantum oneris pro ipsórum salúte subire non recusávit, studérent ipsi mónitis suis obtemperare, divinisque præceptis non obsistere. Duórum Sanctórum tunc ibi defunctórum córpora optimis unguentis condíta sepelívit, Barbatiáni videlicet presbyteri, et Germani Antisiodorénsis epíscopi; cujus étiam cucúllam et cilícium sibi vindicávit in hereditátem. Projectum et Marcellinum in episcopos ordinávit. In Classe fontem exstruxit magnitúdinis vere admirábilis, et templa quædam magnifica ædificávit tum beato Andreæ Apóstolo, tum aliis Sanctis. Ludos ab homínibus personátis cum variis saltatiónibus Kaléndis Januarii fíeri sólitos concióne cohibuit acerrima; ubi inter alia illud præcláre dixit: Qui jocari volúerit cum diabolo, non póterit gaudere cum Christo. Jussu sancti Leónis Papæ primi scripsit póstea ad Chalcédonense Concílium advérsus hæresim Eutychétis. Respóndit præterea ad Eutychen ipsum et alia epistola, quæ eidem concílio in novis editiónibus præfixa, et in annales ecclesiásticos reláta fuit.

Peter being against his will consecrated Archbishop, arrived at Ravenna, where he was received with great joy by the Emperor Valentinian, the Empress-Mother Galla Placidia, and all the people. And this one thing he asked of them, that, as he, for the saving of their souls, had not refused to bear the heavy weight of the Archbishopric, so they would strive to follow his warnings, and live in submission to the law of God. He took the bodies of the two Saints, namely, Barbatian the Priest, and German, Bishop of Auxerre, and caused them to be embalmed with rich ointments and honourably buried, and he kept the cowl and haircloth shirt of German for a legacy for himself. At Classis, three miles from Ravenna, he built a Baptistery of extraordinary size, and several splendid churches, in honour of the blessed Apostle Andrew and other Saints. He preached a most severe sermon against the acting and dancing of guisards about New Year time, in which discourse he said among other things, He that jesteth with the devil will never rejoice with Christ. By command of Pope Leo I. he addressed an Epistle to the Council of Chalcedon against the heretic Eutyches. He also confuted Eutyches himself in another letter, which is likewise published in the new editions of the Acts of the Council, and is matter of Church History.
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.

Dum publice sermónes haberet ad pópulum, adeo vehemens erat in dicendo, ut præ nimio ardore vox illi intérdum defécerit, sicut cóntigit in concióne mulíeris hæmorrhoíssæ. Unde Ravennates commóti, tot lácrimis, clamóribus et oratiónibus locum replevérunt, ut póstea ipse grátias ágeret Deo, quod in lucrum amoris verterit damnum ejusdem sermónis. Cum tandem annos circiter decem et octo eam ecclésiam sanctíssime rexísset, labórum suórum finem adesse divinitus prænoscens, in pátriam se cóntulit; ubi sancti Cassiáni templum ingréssus, magnum diadéma aureum gemmis distinctum pretiosíssimis offerens, super altáre majus pósuit, necnon aureum cratérem, et patenam argenteam, quam tum rábidi canis morsus, tum febres sanare sæpius expertum est, aqua inde demíssa. Ex tunc Ravennates, qui eumdem secúti fuerant, dimísit, ádmonens, ut in eligéndo optimo pastore invigilárent attente. Mox Deum humíliter precátus et sanctum Cassianum patronum, ut benígne ánimam ejus exciperet, quarto Nonas Decembris plácide ex hac vita migrávit, anno Dómini circiter quadringentésimo quinquagesimo. Sacrum illíus corpus, communi totius civitátis fletu ac pietáte prope corpus ejusdem sancti Cassiáni honorifice cónditum, nostris étiam tempóribus religiose cólitur: cujus tamen brácchium, auro et gemmis ornátum Ravennam delátum, in Ursiana æde venerátur.

When he preached in public his vehemence was such that he sometimes became speechless from excitement. This happened to him once when he was preaching on the subject of the woman who had an issue of blood. Matth. ix. 20-22. The congregation on this occasion were so wrought up, that they filled the whole place with tears, cries, and prayers, and Peter afterwards thanked God, Who had turned his failure to the profit of their souls. When he had ruled the Church of Ravenna in holiness for about eighteen years, God gave him knowledge that the end of his labours was at hand, and he returned to his home at Imola, to die. When he arrived at Imola, he entered the church of St. Cassian, and offered upon the High Altar a great circlet of gold, set with stones of great price, a golden chalice and a silver paten. Water poured out of these vessels hath often healed hydrophobia and fevers. Some of the people of Ravenna had followed the Archbishop, but he now dismissed them, with a charge to use great prudence in their choice of his successor. Then he fell to prayer, that God would mercifully receive his spirit, asking the same likewise for the sake of his patron St Cassian, and so he passed in peace to a better life, on a 2nd of December, about the year of our Lord 450. His holy body was buried, amid the sorrow and veneration of the whole city, hard by the remains of St. Cassian, where it lieth even to this day, guarded with great reverence. One arm was cut off and sent to Ravenna, where it is preserved in the Ursian Church, in a reliquary of gold and precious stones.
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

37:6 My sores are putrified and corrupted, * because of my foolishness.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris:

Lectio 7
Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum
Matt 5:13-19
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Vos estis sal terræ. Quod si sal evanúerit, in quo saliétur? Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Hilárii Epíscopi
Comm. in Matthæum, can. 4
Vos estis sal terrae: Quod si sal infatuatum fuerit, ad nihilum valet id quod salietur. Sal, ut arbitror, terrae nullum est. Quomodo ergo Apostolos sal terrae nuncupavit? Sed proprietas est quaerenda dictorum, quam et Apostolorum officium, et ipsius salis natura monstrabit. Sal est in se uno continens aquae et ignis elementum, et hoc ex duobus est unum.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Amávit eum Dóminus, et ornávit eum: stolam glóriæ induit eum,
* Et ad portas paradisi coronávit eum.
V. Induit eum Dóminus lorícam fidei, et ornávit eum.
R. Et ad portas paradisi coronávit eum.

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

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.
V. The Lord hath put on him the breast-plate of faith, and hath adorned him.
R. And crowned him at the gates of Paradise.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Hic igitur in omnem usum humani generis effectus, incorruptionem corporibus, quibus fuerit aspersus, impertit, et ad omnem sensum conditi saporis aptissimus est. Apostoli autem sunt rerum caelestium praedicatores, et aeternitatis velut satores, immortalitatem omnibus corporibus, quibus eorum sermo aspersus fuerit, conferentes. Merito igitur sal terrae nuncupati sunt, per doctrinae virtutem saliendi modo aeternitati corpora reservantes.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. In médio Ecclésiæ apéruit os ejus,
* Et implévit eum Dóminus spíritu sapiéntiæ et intelléctus.
V. Jucunditátem et exsultatiónem thesaurizávit super eum.
R. Et implévit eum Dóminus spíritu sapiéntiæ et intelléctus.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et implévit eum Dóminus spíritu sapiéntiæ et intelléctus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
This thing, therefore, thus made to serve in divers 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.

Lectio 9
Sed natura salis semper eadem est, nec immutari umquam potest. Verum quia conversioni homo subjacet, et solus beatus, qui usque ad finem in omnibus Dei operibus permanserit: ideo eos sal terrae nuncupatos monet in traditae sibi potestatis virtute persistere, ne infatuati nihil saliant, et ipsi, sensu accepti saporis amisso, vivificare corrupta non possint, et projecti de Ecclesiae promptuariis, cum his quos salierint, pedibus incedentium proterantur.
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
But the nature of salt is to be ever the same, and unchanging, and, on the other hand, the nature of man hath this weakness, to be changeable. He only is blessed who hath continued even unto the end in all the works which God hath commanded. Therefore dot! the Lord warn them whom He calleth the salt of the earth, that they are behoven to remain strong in that strength which He hath given unto them, lest, becoming themselves savourless, they should be impotent to season others losing the freshness of their own saltness, be unable to stop the corruption round about them and so the Church cast them out of her buttery, and they and those that they should have salted, be together trodden under foot of such as enter in.
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.
