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.

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 Commune aut Festo}
Iste Confessor 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.

Benedíctus, Núrsiæ nóbili génere ortus, Romæ liberálibus disciplínis erudítus, ut totum se Jesu Christo daret, ad eum locum, qui Sublácus dícitur, in altíssimam spelúncam penetrávit; in qua sic per triénnium delítuit, ut unus id sciret Románus mónachus, quo ad vitæ necessitátem minístro utebátur. Dum ígitur ei quodam die ardéntes ad libídinem faces a diábolo subjiceréntur, se in vépribus támdiu volutávit, dum, laceráto córpore, voluptátis sensus dolóre opprimerétur. Sed jam erumpénte ex illis látebris fama ejus sanctitátis, quidam mónachi se illi instituéndos tradidérunt: quorum vivéndi licéntia cum ejus objurgatiónes ferre non posset, venénum in potióne ei dare constítuunt. Verum, póculum ei præbéntibus, crucis signo vas confrégit, ac relícto monastério in solitúdinem se recépit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Honestum fecit illum Dóminus, et custodívit eum ab inimícis, et a seductoribus tutavit illum:
* Et dedit illi claritátem ætérnam.

R. Et dedit illi claritátem ætérnam.

Reading 4
Benedict was born of a noble family at Norcia, about the year of our Lord 480, and studied letters at Rome. Desiring to give himself altogether to Christ Jesus, he betook himself to a very deep cave at the place now called Subiaco. In this place he lay hid for three years, unknown to all except the monk Romanus, by means of whom he received the necessaries of life. While he was in the cave at Subiaco, the devil one day assailed him with an extraordinary storm of impure temptation, and to get it under, he rolled himself in brambles till his whole body was lacerated, and the sting of pain drove out the sallies of lust. At last the fame of his holiness spread itself abroad from the desert, and some monks came to him for guidance, but the looseness of their lives was such that they could not bear his exhortations, and they plotted together to poison him in his drink. When they gave him the cup, he made the sign of the Cross over it, whereupon it immediately broke, and Benedict left that monastery, and retired to a desert place alone.
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.

Lectio 5
Sed cum multi ad eum quotídie discípuli convenírent, duódecim monastéria ædificávit, éaque sanctíssimis légibus communívit. Póstea Cassínum migrávit, ubi simulácrum Apóllinis, qui adhuc ibi colebátur, commínuit, aram evértit et lucos succéndit; ibíque sancti Martíni sacéllum et sancti Joánnis ædículam exstrúxit, oppidános autem et íncolas christiánis præcéptis ímbuit. Quare augebátur in dies magis divína grátia Benedíctus, ut étiam prophético spíritu ventúra prædíceret. Quod ubi accépit Tótila Gothórum rex, exploratúrus, an res ita esset, spathárium suum régio ornátu et comitátu præmíttit, qui se regem simuláret. Quem ut ille vidit, Depóne, inquit, fili, depóne quod geris; nam tuum non est. Tótilæ vero prædíxit advéntum ejus in Urbem, maris transmissiónem, et post novem annos mortem.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Amávit eum Dóminus, et ornávit eum: stolam glóriæ índuit eum,
* Et ad portas paradísi coronávit eum.
V. Índuit eum Dóminus loricam fídei, et ornávit eum.
R. Et ad portas paradísi coronávit eum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
Neverthless his disciples followed him daily, and for them he built twelve monasteries, and set holy laws to govern them. Afterwards he went to Cassino, and brake the image of Apollo which was still worshipped there, overturned the altar, and burnt the groves. There, in the year 529, he built the Church of St Martin and the little chapel of St. John; and instilled Christianity into the townspeople and inhabitants. He grew in the grace of God day by day, so that being endowed with the spirit of prophecy he foretold things to come. When Totila, King of the Goths, heard of it, and would see whether it really were so, he sent his Spatharius before him, with the kingly ensigns and attendance, and feigning himself to be Totila. But as soon as Benedict saw him he said: My son, put off that which thou wearest, for it is not thine. To Totila himself he foretold that he would go to Rome, would cross the sea, and would die after nine years.
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.

Reading 6
Some months before he departed this life, Benedict forewarned his disciples on what day he was to die; and he ordered his grave to be opened six days before he was carried to it. On the sixth day, being the 21st of March, in the year 543, he would be carried into the Church, where he received the Eucharist, and then, in the arms of his disciples, with his eyes lifted up to heaven, and wrapt in prayer, he gave up the ghost. Two monks saw his soul rising to heaven, clothed in a most precious garment, and surrounded with lights, and One of a most glorious and awful aspect standing above, Whom they heard saying This is the way whereby Benedict, the beloved of the Lord, goeth up to heaven.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. This is he which did according unto all that God commanded him; and God said unto him Enter thou into My rest
* For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.
V. This is he which loved not his life in this world, and is come unto an everlasting kingdom.
R. For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.

37:3 Non est sánitas in carne mea a fácie iræ tuæ: * non est pax óssibus meis a fácie peccatórum meórum.
37:4 Quóniam iniquitátes meæ supergréssæ sunt caput meum: * et sicut onus grave gravátæ sunt super me.
37:5 Putruérunt et corrúptæ sunt cicatríces meæ, * a fácie insipiéntiæ meæ.
37:6 Miser factus sum, et curvátus sum usque in finem: * tota die contristátus ingrediébar.

Psalm 37(1-11) [7]
37:1 Rebuke me not, O Lord, in thy indignation; * nor chastise me in thy wrath.
37:2 For thy arrows are fastened in me: * and thy hand hath been strong upon me.
37:3 There is no health in my flesh, because of thy wrath: * there is no peace for my bones, because of my sins.
37:4 For my iniquities are gone over my head: * and as a heavy burden are become heavy upon me.
37:5 My sores are putrified and corrupted, * because of my foolishness.
37:6 I am become miserable, and am bowed down even to the end: * I walked sorrowful all the day long.
37:7 For my loins are filled with illusions; * and there is no health in my flesh.
37:8 I am afflicted and humbled exceedingly: * I roared with the groaning of my heart.
37:9 Lord, all my desire is before thee, * and my groaning is not hidden from thee.
37:10 My heart is troubled, my strength hath left me, * and the light of my eyes itself is not with me.

37:13 Et qui juxta me erant, de longe stetérunt: * et vim faciébant qui quærébant ánimam meam.
37:14 Et qui inquirébant mala mihi, locúti sunt vanitátes: * et dolos tota die meditabántur.
37:15 Ego autem tamquam surdus non audiébam: * et sicut mutus non apériens os suum.
37:16 Et factus sum sicut homo non áudiens: * et non habens in ore suo redargutiónes.
37:17 Quóniam in te, Dómine, sperávi: * tu exáudies me, Dómine, Deus meus.

37:13 And they that were near me stood afar off: * and they that sought my soul used violence.
37:14 And they that sought evils to me spoke vain things, * and studied deceits all the day long.
37:15 But I, as a deaf man, heard not: * and as a dumb man not opening his mouth.
37:16 And I became as a man that heareth not: * and that hath no reproofs in his mouth.
37:17 For in thee, O Lord, have I hoped: * thou wilt hear me, O Lord my God.
37:18 For I said: Lest at any time my enemies rejoice over me: * and whilst my feet are moved, they speak great things against me.
37:19 For I am ready for scourges: * and my sorrow is continually before me.
37:20 For I will declare my iniquity: * and I will think for my sin.
37:21 But my enemies live, and are stronger than I: * and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

38:5 Locútus sum in lingua mea: * Notum fac mihi, Dómine, finem meum.
38:6 Et númerum diérum meórum quis est: * ut sciam quid desit mihi.

38:1 I said: I will take heed to my ways: * that I sin not with my tongue.
38:2 I have set guard to my mouth, * when the sinner stood against me.
38:3 I was dumb, and was humbled, and kept silence from good things: * and my sorrow was renewed.
38:4 My heart grew hot within me: * and in my meditation a fire shall flame out.
38:5 I spoke with my tongue: * O Lord, make me know my end.
38:6 And what is the number of my days: * that I may know what is wanting to me.
38:7 Behold thou hast made my days measurable: * and my substance is as nothing before thee.
38:8 And indeed all things are vanity: * every man living.
38:9 Surely man passeth as an image: * yea, and he is disquieted in vain.
38:10 He storeth up: * and he knoweth not for whom he shall gather these things.
38:11 And now what is my hope? Is it not the Lord? * And my substance is with thee.
38:12 Deliver thou me from all my iniquities: * thou hast made me a reproach to the fool.
38:13 I was dumb, and I opened not my mouth, because thou hast done it: * remove thy scourges from me.
38:14 The strength of thy hand hath made me faint in rebukes: * thou hast corrected man for iniquity.
38:15 And thou hast made his soul to waste away like a spider: * surely in vain is any man disquieted.
38:16 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and my supplication: * give ear to my tears.
38:17 Be not silent: for I am a stranger with thee, * and a sojourner as all my fathers were.

Et quia non súfficit tantum relínquere, jungit quod perféctum est: Et secúti sumus te. Fécimus quod jussísti: quid ígitur nobis dabis prǽmii? Jesus autem dixit illis: Amen dico vobis, quod vos qui secúti estis me, in regeneratióne, cum séderit Fílius hóminis in sede majestátis suæ, sedébitis et vos super sedes duódecim, judicántes duódecim tribus Ísraël. Non dixit: Qui reliquístis ómnia; hoc enim et Crates fecit philósophus, et multi álii divítias contempsérunt: sed, Qui secúti estis me: quod próprie Apostolórum est, atque credéntium.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Isti sunt qui vivéntes in carne, plantavérunt Ecclésiam sánguine suo:
* Cálicem Dómini bibérunt, et amíci Dei facti sunt.
V. In omnem terram exívit sonus eórum, et in fines orbis terræ verba eórum.
R. Cálicem Dómini bibérunt, et amíci Dei facti sunt.

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 19:27-29
At that time, Peter said unto Jesus: Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee what shall we have therefore? And so on.

Homily by St. Jerome, Priest at Bethlehem.
Bk. iii. on Matth xix.
Peter was a fisherman, he was not rich, he earned his bread by his hand and skill, and nevertheless he is thus bold, and saith confidently: We have forsaken all. And because it sufficeth not to forsake only, he addeth that which to do is to be perfect: and followed thee. We have done that which Thou hast commanded us, what reward therefore wilt Thou give us? And Jesus said unto them Amen I say unto you, that ye which have followed Me, in the regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. He said not, Ye which have forsaken all, for this did even Crates the philosopher, and they which have set nothing by riches are many, but, Ye which have followed Me. This did the Apostles, and this do believers do.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. These are they who while yet they lived in the flesh, planted the Church in their own blood;
* They drank of the Lord's cup, and became the friends of God.
V. Their sound is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.
R. They drank of the Lord's cup, and became the friends of God.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

In regeneratióne, cum séderit Fílius hóminis in sede majestátis suæ (quando et mórtui de corruptióne resúrgent incorrúpti) sedébitis et vos in sóliis judicántium, condemnántes duódecim tribus Ísraël: quia vobis credéntibus, illi crédere noluérunt Et omnis qui relíquerit domum, vel fratres, aut soróres, aut patrem, aut matrem, aut uxórem, aut fílios, aut agros propter nomen meum, centúplum accípiet, et vitam ætérnam possidébit. Locus iste cum illa senténtia cóngruit, in qua Salvátor lóquitur: Non veni pacem míttere, sed gládium. Veni enim separáre hóminem a pátre suo, et matrem a fília, et nurum a socru: et inimíci hóminis doméstici ejus. Qui ergo propter fidem Christi, et prædicatiónem Evangélii, omnes afféctus contémpserint, atque divítias et sǽculi voluptátes: isti centúplum recípient, et vitam ætérnam possidébunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Isti sunt viri sancti, quos elégit Dóminus in caritáte non ficta, et dedit illis glóriam sempitérnam:
* Quorum doctrína fulget Ecclésia, ut sole luna.
V. Sancti per fidem vicérunt regna: operáti sunt justítiam.
R. Quorum doctrína fulget Ecclésia, ut sole luna.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Quorum doctrína fulget Ecclésia, ut sole luna.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
In the regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, and when the dead shall rise again from corruption incorruptible, i Cor. xv. 53, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones of judgment, condemning the twelve tribes of Israel, because, when ye believed in Me, they would not. John iii. 18. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My Name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. This place agreeth well with that other where the Saviour saith I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man's foes shall be they of his own household. Matth. x. 34. Every one, therefore, that hath set no store by affection, and riches, and the pleasures of the world, for Christ's faith's sake, and the preaching of the Gospel, shall receive an hundred-fold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. These men are saints, whom the Lord hath chosen in love unfeigned, and hath given them glory everlasting. These are they
* By the light of whose teaching the Church is glorified, even as the moon is glorified by the light of the sun.
V. The saints through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness.
R. By the light of whose teaching the Church is glorified, even as the moon is glorified by the light of the sun.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. By the light of whose teaching the Church is glorified, even as the moon is glorified by the light of the sun.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Per evangélica dicta, deleántur nostra delícta. Amen.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum
Matt 18:15-22
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Si peccaverit in te frater tuus, vade, et córripe eum inter te et ipsum solum. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Augustíni Epíscopi
Sermo 16 de Verbis Dómini, tomus 10, post initium
Quare illum córripis? Quia tu doles, quod peccaverit in te? Absit. Si amore tui id facis, nihil facis: si amore illíus facis, optime facis. Dénique in ipsis verbis attende, cujus amore id fácere debeas, utrum tui, an illíus. Si te audíerit, inquit, lucrátus es fratrem tuum. Ergo propter illum fac, ut lucréris illum. Sic faciéndo lucraris: nisi fecisses, períerat. Quid est ergo, quod plerique hómines ista peccáta contemnunt, et dicunt: Quid magnum feci? In hóminem peccávi. Noli comtemnere: in hóminem peccasti.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Venerándum tuum verum * et únicum Fílium;
Sanctum quoque * Paráclitum Spíritum.
Tu Rex glóriæ, * Christe.
Tu Patris * sempitérnus es Fílius.

Fit reverentia
Tu, ad liberándum susceptúrus hóminem: * non horruísti Vírginis uterum.

Tu, devícto mortis acúleo, * aperuísti credéntibus regna cælórum.
Tu ad déxteram Dei sedes, * in glória Patris.
Judex créderis * esse ventúrus.

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

Ætérna fac cum Sanctis tuis * in glória numerári.
Salvum fac pópulum tuum, Dómine, * et bénedic hereditáti tuæ.
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.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Gospel's glorious word Cleansing to our souls afford. Amen.

Commemoration of the day
Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 18:15-22
At that time, Jesus saith to his disciples: But if thy brother shall offend against thee, go, and rebuke him between thee and him alone. And so on.

Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
16th Sermon on the Words of the Lord, vol. x.
Why tell him his fault? Because he hath made thee smart by trespassing against thee? God forbid. If thou tell him his fault because thou lovest thyself, thou dost nothing. But if thou tell it him because thou lovest him, then dost thou do exceeding well. Hear now, in the words of the Gospel itself, for love of whom, thou oughtest to do it, of thyself, or of him. The Lord saith: If he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. Therefore it behoveth thee to do it for his sake, that thou mayest gain him; since, if thou so do, haply thou mayest gain him; whereas, if thou do it not, he may haply perish. Why then are there so many who reckon lightly of a trespass against their brother, and say I have done no great offence, for I have trespassed only against my fellow man? Deem it not light; thou hast trespassed, though it be against thy fellow man.
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.
