Ant. Non sit vobis vanum mane súrgere ante lucem: * Quia promísit Dóminus corónam vigilántibus.
Quóniam Deus magnus Dóminus, et Rex magnus super omnes deos, quóniam non repéllet Dóminus plebem suam: quia in manu eius sunt omnes fines terræ, et altitúdines móntium ipse cónspicit.
Ant. Quia promísit Dóminus corónam vigilántibus.
Quóniam ipsíus est mare, et ipse fecit illud, et áridam fundavérunt manus eius (genuflectitur) veníte, adorémus, et procidámus ante Deum: plorémus coram Dómino, qui fecit nos, quia ipse est Dóminus, Deus noster; nos autem pópulus eius, et oves páscuæ eius.

Ant. Let it not be vain for you to rise up early, before the light: * For the Lord hath promised a crown to them that watch.
Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
Ant. Let it not be vain for you to rise up early, before the light: * For the Lord hath promised a crown to them that watch.
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. For the Lord hath promised a crown to them that watch.
For the sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. (genuflect) Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us: For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Ant. Let it not be vain for you to rise up early, before the light: * For the Lord hath promised a crown to them that watch.
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. For the Lord hath promised a crown to them that watch.
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 Psalterio secundum tempora}
Ex more docti mýstico
Servémus hoc ieiúnium,
Deno diérum círculo
Ducto quater notíssimo.

Lex et prophetæ prímitus
Hoc prætulérunt, póstmodum
Christus sacrávit, ómnium
Rex atque factor témporum.

Utámur ergo párcius
Verbis, cibis et pótibus,
Somno, iocis, et árctius
Perstémus in custódia.

Vitémus autem nóxia,
Quæ súbruunt mentes vagas:
Nullúmque demus cállidi
Hostis locum tyránnidi.

Flectámus iram víndicem,
Plorémus ante Iúdicem,
Clamémus ore súpplici,
Dicámus omnes cérnui:

Nostris malis offéndimus
Tuam, Deus, cleméntiam:
Effúnde nobis désuper,
Remíssor, indulgéntiam.

Meménto quod sumus tui,
Licet cadúci, plásmatis:
Ne des honórem nóminis
Tui, precámur, álteri.

Laxa malum, quod fécimus,
Auge bonum, quod póscimus:
Placére quo tandem tibi
Possímus hic, et pérpetim.

Præsta, beáta Trinitas,
Concéde, simplex Unitas,
Ut fructuósa sint tuis
Ieiuniórum múnera.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
The fast, as taught by holy lore,
We keep in solemn course once more:
The fast to all men known, and bound
In forty days of yearly round.

The law and seers that were of old
In divers ways this Lent foretold,
Which Christ, all seasons’ King and Guide,
In after ages sanctified.

More sparing therefore let us make
The words we speak, the food we take,
Our sleep and mirth, —and closer barred
Be every sense in holy guard.

Avoid the evil thoughts that roll
Like waters o’er the heedless soul;
Nor let the foe occasion find
Our souls in slavery to bind.

In prayer together let us fall,
And cry for mercy, one and all,
And weep before the Judge’s feet,
And his avenging wrath entreat.

Thy grace have we offended sore,
By sins, O God, which we deplore;
But pour upon us from on high,
O pardoning One, thy clemency.

Remember thou, though frail we be,
That yet thine handiwork are we;
Nor let the honour of thy name
Be by another put to shame.

Forgive the sin that we have wrought;
Increase the good that we have sought:
That we at length, our wanderings o'er,
May please thee here and evermore.

Grant O thou Blessed Trinity,
Grant, O Essential Unity,
That this our fast of forty days
May work our profit and thy praise.
Amen.

36:37 Keep innocence, and behold justice: * for there are remnants for the peaceable man.
36:38 But the unjust shall be destroyed together: * the remnants of the wicked shall perish.
36:39 But the salvation of the just is from the Lord, * and he is their protector in the time of trouble.

Ant. Ne in ira tua * corrípias me, Dómine.
Psalmus 37(1-11) [7]
37:1 Dómine, ne in furóre tuo árguas me, * neque in ira tua corrípias me.
37:2 Quóniam sagíttæ tuæ infíxæ sunt mihi: * et confirmásti super me manum tuam.
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.
37:7 Quóniam lumbi mei impléti sunt illusiónibus: * et non est sánitas in carne mea.
37:8 Afflíctus sum, et humiliátus sum nimis: * rugiébam a gémitu cordis mei.
37:9 Dómine, ante te omne desidérium meum: * et gémitus meus a te non est abscónditus.

Ant. O Lord, * do not chastise me in thy wrath.
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.
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.

Psalmus 37(12-23) [8]
37:12 Amíci mei, et próximi mei * advérsum me appropinquavérunt, et stetérunt.
37:13 Et qui iuxta 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.
37:18 Quia dixi: Nequándo supergáudeant mihi inimíci mei: * et dum commovéntur pedes mei, super me magna locúti sunt.
37:19 Quóniam ego in flagélla parátus sum: * et dolor meus in conspéctu meo semper.
37:20 Quóniam iniquitátem meam annuntiábo: * et cogitábo pro peccáto meo.
37:21 Inimíci autem mei vivunt, et confirmáti sunt super me: * et multiplicáti sunt qui odérunt me iníque.
37:22 Qui retríbuunt mala pro bonis, detrahébant mihi: * quóniam sequébar bonitátem.

Ant. Attend unto my help, * O Lord, the God of my salvation.
Psalm 37(12-23) [8]
37:12 My friends and my neighbours * have drawn near, and stood against me.
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.
37:22 They that render evil for good, have detracted me, * because I followed goodness.
37:23 Forsake me not, O Lord my God: * do not thou depart from me.
37:23 Attend unto my help, * O Lord, the God of my salvation.
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. Attend unto my help, * O Lord, the God of my salvation.
Ant. Ámove, Dómine, * a me plagas tuas.
Psalmus 38 [9]
38:1 Dixi: Custódiam vias meas: * ut non delínquam in lingua mea.
38:2 Pósui ori meo custódiam, * cum consísteret peccátor advérsum me.
38:3 Obmútui, et humiliátus sum, et sílui a bonis: * et dolor meus renovátus est.
38:4 Concáluit cor meum intra me: * et in meditatióne mea exardéscet ignis.
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.
38:7 Ecce mensurábiles posuísti dies meos: * et substántia mea tamquam níhilum ante te.
38:8 Verúmtamen univérsa vánitas, * omnis homo vivens.
38:9 Verúmtamen in imágine pertránsit homo: * sed et frustra conturbátur.
38:10 Thesaurízat: * et ignórat cui congregábit ea.
38:11 Et nunc quæ est exspectátio mea? Nonne Dóminus? * Et substántia mea apud te est.
38:12 Ab ómnibus iniquitátibus meis érue me: * oppróbrium insipiénti dedísti me.
38:13 Obmútui, et non apérui os meum, quóniam tu fecísti: * ámove a me plagas tuas.
38:14 A fortitúdine manus tuæ ego deféci in increpatiónibus: * propter iniquitátem corripuísti hóminem.
38:15 Et tabéscere fecísti sicut aráneam ánimam eius: * verúmtamen vane conturbátur omnis homo.
38:16 Exáudi oratiónem meam, Dómine, et deprecatiónem meam: * áuribus pércipe lácrimas meas.
38:17 Ne síleas: quóniam ádvena ego sum apud te, et peregrínus, * sicut omnes patres mei.
38:18 Remítte mihi, ut refrígerer priúsquam ábeam, * et ámplius non ero.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Ámove, Dómine, * a me plagas tuas.
Ant. Remove, O Lord, * thy scourges from me.
Psalm 38 [9]
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.
38:18 O forgive me, that I may be refreshed, before I go hence, * and be no more.
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. Remove, O Lord, * thy scourges from me.
V. Scápulis suis obumbrábit tibi.
R. Et sub pennis eius sperábis.
V. He will overshadow thee with his shoulders.
R. And under his wings thou shalt trust.
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:

Absolutio. Ipsíus píetas et misericórdia nos ádiuvet, qui cum Patre et Spíritu Sancto vivit et regnat in sǽcula sæculórum. 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 Matthǽum
Matt 18:15-22
In illo témpore: Dixit Iesus discípulis suis: Si peccaverit in te frater tuus, vade, et córripe eum inter te et ipsum solum. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Augustini 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, cuius 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.

R. Nuntiavérunt Iacob dicéntes: Ioseph fílius tuus vivit, et ipse dominátur in tota terra Ægypti: quo audito revixit spíritus eius, et dixit:
* Sufficit mihi, vadam et vidébo eum antequam moriar.
V. Cumque audísset Iacob quod fílius eius viveret, quasi de gravi somno evigilans, ait.
R. Sufficit mihi, vadam et vidébo eum antequam moriar.

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

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.

R. They told Jacob, saying: thy son Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt; and, when he heard it, his spirit revived, and he said
* It is enough; I will go, and see him before I die.
V. And when Jacob heard that his son yet lived, he was as one that awakeneth from a deep sleep, and said:
R. It is enough; I will go, and see him before I die.
V. Iube, Domine, benedicere.
Benedictio. Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum. Amen.

Lectio 2
Vis nosse, quia in hóminem peccando perísti? Si te ille, in quem peccásti, corripúerit inter te et ipsum solum, et audíeris illum, lucrátus est te. Quid est, Lucrátus est te; nisi quia períeras, si non lucrarétur te? Nam si non períeras, quómodo te lucrátus est? Nemo ergo contemnat, quando peccat in fratrem. Ait enim quodam loco Apóstolus: Sic autem peccántes in fratres, et percutiéntes consciéntiam eórum infirmam, in Christum peccátis: ideo quia membra Christi omnes facti sumus. Quómodo non peccas in Christum, qui peccas in membrum Christi?
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Ioseph dum intraret in terram Ægypti, linguam quam non nóverat, audívit: manus eius in labóribus serviérunt:
* Et lingua eius inter príncipes loquebátur sapiéntiam.
V. Humiliavérunt in compédibus pedes eius: ferrum petránsiit ánimam eius, donec veníret verbum eius.
R. Et lingua eius inter príncipes loquebátur sapiéntiam.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 2
Wouldest thou know that thy trespass against thy brother hath destroyed thee? If he against whom thou hast trespassed tell thee thy fault between himself and thee alone, and thou hear him, he hath gained thee. Gained thee! And what signify those words, if it be not that thou, if thou be not gained, shalt perish? For if thou shouldest not otherwise perish, in what sense can he be said to gain thee? Therefore let no man deem it a light thing when he trespasseth against his brother. For the Apostle Paul saith in a certain place: When ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ. 1 Cor. viii. 12. We are all members of Christ. How dost thou not trespass against Christ, which trespassest against one of His members?
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. When Joseph came into the land of Egypt, he heard a language that he understood not; his hands were burdened with labour;
* And his tongue spake wisdom among princes.
V. Whose feet they hurt with fetters; the iron entered into his soul, until the time that his word came
R. And his tongue spake wisdom among princes.
V. Iube, Domine, benedicere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 3
Nemo ergo dicat, quia non peccávi in Deum, sed peccávi in fratrem: in hóminem peccávi, leve, vel nullum peccátum est. Forte inde dicis: Leve est, quia cito curátur. Peccásti in fratrem: fac satis, et sanatus es. Cito fecísti mortiferam rem, sed remédium cito invenísti. Quis nostrum speret regnum cælórum, fratres mei, quando dicit Evangélium: Qui díxerit fratri suo, Fátue: reus erit gehennæ ignis? Magnus terror: sed vide ibi remédium. Si obtúleris munus tuum ad altáre, et ibi recordátus fúeris, quia frater tuus habet aliquid advérsum te, relínque ibi munus tuum ante altáre. Non iráscitur Deus, quia differs impónere munus tuum: te quærit Deus magis, quam munus tuum.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Meménto mei, dum bene tibi fúerit:
* Ut suggeras Pharaoni, ut educat me de isto carcere: * Quia furtim sublátus sum, et hic ínnocens in lacum missus sum.
V. Tres enim adhuc dies sunt, post quos recordábitur Pharao ministerii tui, et restítuet te in gradum prístinum: tunc meménto mei.
R. Ut suggeras Pharaoni, ut educat me de isto carcere.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Quia furtim sublátus sum, et hic ínnocens in lacum missus sum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 3
Let no man therefore say I have not trespassed against God, but only against my brother; that is, I have trespassed against my fellowman; and so the sin is light, if any at all. And perchance thou wilt argue that it is light, because it is quickly mended; thou hast trespassed against thy brother, but thou canst make satisfaction, and be right again; thou hast done the deadly thing quickly, and quickly canst thou find a remedy. O my brethren, which of us can hope for the kingdom of heaven, when we remember that the Gospel saith: “Whosoever shall say to his brother: Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire?” Matth. v. 22. It is a thought full of dread; but, lo! the remedy: If thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee, leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. God is not wroth that thou tarry or ever thou offer thy gift; for God seeketh thyself more than thy gift.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Think on me when it shall be well with thee;
* And make mention of me unto Pharaoh, that he may bring me out of this prison. * For I was stolen away; and here have I done nothing, that they should put me into the dungeon.
V. For yet three days, and then Pharaoh shall remember thy service, and restore thee unto thy place; then think of me.
R. And make mention of me unto Pharaoh, that he may bring me out of this prison.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. For I was stolen away; and here have I done nothing, that they should put me into the dungeon.
