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.

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.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Iste Conféssor Dómini, coléntes
Quem pie laudant pópuli per orbem,
Hac die lætus méruit beátas
Scandere sedes.

Qui pius, prudens, húmilis, pudícus,
Sóbriam duxit sine labe vitam,
Donec humanos 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
Erst on this feast-day merited to enter
Into his glory.

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.

2:9 Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, * and shalt break them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

De Epístola prima beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Timothéum
1 Tim 3:1-7
1 Fidelis sermo: si quis episcopátum desíderat, bonum opus desíderat.
2 Oportet ergo episcopum irreprehensibilem esse, uníus uxoris virum, sobrium, prudéntem, ornátum, pudicum, hospitalem, doctórem,
3 Non vinoléntum, non percussórem, sed modestum; non litigiosum, non cupidum, sed
4 Suæ domui bene præpositum, fílios habéntem subditos cum omni castitate.
5 Si quis autem domui suæ præesse nescit, quómodo Ecclésiæ Dei diligéntiam habebit?
6 Non neóphytum, ne in supérbiam elatus, in judícium íncidat diaboli.
7 Oportet autem illum et testimónium habere bonum ab iis qui foris sunt, ut non in oppróbrium íncidat, et in láqueum diaboli.

Lesson from the first letter of St. Paul the Apostle to Timothy
1 Tim 3:1-7
1 A faithful saying: if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
2 It behoveth therefore a bishop to be blameless, the husband of one wife, sober, prudent, of good behaviour, chaste, given to hospitality, a teacher,
3 Not given to wine, no striker, but modest, not quarrelsome, not covetous, but
4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all chastity.
5 But if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?
6 Not a neophyte: lest being puffed up with pride, he fall into the judgment of the devil.
7 Moreover he must have a good testimony of them who are without: lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Well done, thou good and faithful servant, thou hast been faithful over a few things. I will make thee ruler over many things
* Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. Alleluia.
V. Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents; behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
R. Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. Alleluia.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adjuváre dignétur. Amen.

De Epístola ad Titum
Titus 1:7-11
7 Opórtet enim epíscopum sine crímine esse, sicut Dei dispensatórem: non supérbum, non iracúndum, non vinoléntum, non percussórem, non turpis lucri cúpidum:
8 Sed hospitálem, benígnum, sóbrium, iustum, sanctum, continéntem,
9 Amplecténtem eum, qui secúndum doctrínam est, fidélem sermónem: ut potens sit exhortári in doctrína sana, et eos qui contradícunt, argúere.
10 Sunt enim multi étiam inobediéntes, vaníloqui, et seductóres: máxime qui de circumcisióne sunt:
11 Quos opórtet redárgui: qui univérsas domos subvértunt, docéntes quæ non opórtet, turpis lucri grátia.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

From the letter of St. Paul the Apostle to Titus
Titus 1:7-11
7 For a bishop must be without crime, as the steward of God: not proud, not subject to anger, not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre:
8 But given to hospitality, gentle, sober, just, holy, continent:
9 Embracing that faithful word which is according to doctrine, that he may be able to exhort in sound doctrine, and to convince the gainsayers.
10 For there are also many disobedient, vain talkers, and seducers: especially they who are of the circumcision:
11 Who must be reproved, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Behold an high priest, who in his days pleased God
* Therefore the Lord assured him by an oath that He would multiply his seed among His people. Alleluia.
V. He hath made him a blessing unto all nations, and hath established His covenant upon his head.
R. Therefore the Lord assured him by an oath that He would multiply his seed among His people. Alleluia.

Lesson from the letter of St. James the Apostle
Jas 4:1-4
1 From whence are wars and contentions among you? Are they not hence, from your concupiscences, which war in your members?
2 You covet, and have not: you kill, and envy, and can not obtain. You contend and war, and you have not, because you ask not.
3 You ask, and receive not; because you ask amiss: that you may consume it on your concupiscences.
4 Adulterers, know you not that the friendship of this world is the enemy of God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of this world, becometh an enemy of God.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

5:7 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.
5:11 Let them fall from their devices: according to the multitude of their wickednesses cast them out: * for they have provoked thee, O Lord.
5:12 But let all them be glad that hope in thee: * they shall rejoice for ever, and thou shalt dwell in them.
5:12 And all they that love thy name shall glory in thee: * For thou wilt bless the just.

Ubaldus Eugubii in Umbria nobili genere natus, a primis annis pietáte et litteris egregie est institútus; jamque adoléscens, ut uxórem duceret, sæpe tentatus, numquam tamen a proposito servandæ virginitátis recéssit. Sacerdos effectus, patrimónium suum paupéribus et ecclésiis distríbuit, et canonicórum regulárium ordinis sancti Augustíni institutum suscípiens, illud in pátriam tránstulit, atque in eo aliquámdiu sanctíssime vixit.

Reading 4
Ubald was born of a noble family at Gubbio in Umbria, and well established in godliness and learning from his earliest years. When he was a young man, it was often proposed to him to marry, but he never abandoned his determination to preserve his virginity. After that he was ordained Priest he divided his inheritance among the poor and Churches, and embraced the Institute of Canons Regular of St. Augustine. This Institute he brought to Gubbio, and for some time led therein a most holy life. When the fame of his saintliness had got noised abroad, Pope Honorius II set him, contrary to his own wishes, over the Church of Gubbio, and he was honoured with consecration as Bishop by the hands of the said Pope himself, in the year of our Lord 1129.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

Ad suam itaque revertens ecclésiam, cum de consueta vivéndi ratióne nihil ádmodum immutasset, in omni tamen virtútum genere eo magis eminére cœpit, quo efficacius aliórum étiam salútem verbo et exemplo procuraret, factus forma gregis ex animo. Nam victu parco, vestítu móderato, léctulo áspero et páuperrimo, crucis mortificatiónem jugiter in suo corpore circumferebat, dum inexplébili oratiónis studio spíritum quotídie recrearet. Hinc admirábilem illam mansuetúdinem est adeptus, qua gravíssimas injurias et contumelias non modo æquanimiter tulit, verum étiam mirifico dilectiónis afféctu persecutores suos omni benignitátis testimonio complectebátur.

Reading 5
When Ubald came to live as Bishop in Gubbio, he changed his way of life in no wise from that which he had led before, but his virtues began to be more eminent because his word and example were now more able to benefit his neighbours, to whom the shepherd of their souls was a pattern, not by outward showing only, but from his heart. He ate little, dressed simply, and slept upon a hard and very poor bed. He "always bore in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus," (2 Cor. iv. 10,) while he daily fed his soul in unceasing and earnest prayer. Hence he acquired such wonderful meekness, that when he was most grievously wronged and insulted he not only took it patiently, but, by a strange impulse of love for them, embraced his persecutors with every proof of affection.
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

Reading 6
Just the space of two years before Ubald passed away from this present life, he was tried as gold in the furnace, by grievous bodily weakness, and, day after day, amid the sharpest sufferings, he never ceased patiently to give God thanks. He rested in peace on the sacred day of Pentecost, in the year 1160, having for many years governed with great praise the Church which had been entrusted to him, and glorious for good works and miracles. Pope Celestine III. numbered him with the Saints. His strength is most chiefly shown in the casting out of evil spirits. His body hath remained without corruption for all these ages, and is reverenced greatly in his native town by Christ's faithful people. To them he hath more than once shown himself good at need.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

* May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them. Alleluia.

R. May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them. Alleluia.

Ecce homo, qui peregre proficiscitur, servos suos vocat, eisque ad negotium talénta partitur.

From the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 25:14-23
At that time Jesus spake unto His disciples this parable A man, travelling into a far country, called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And so on.

Homily by Pope St Gregory the Great.
9th on the Gospels.
Dearly beloved brethren, this Lesson from the Holy Gospel moveth us to take good heed lest we, who are seen in this world to have received more than others, should thereby bring ourselves into greater condemnation from the Maker of this world. To whom much is given, of the same is much required. Therefore, let him that receiveth much, strive to be all the more lowly, and all the more ready to do God service, for his very gifts’ sake, knowing that he will be obliged to give account thereof. Behold, a man, travelling into a far country, calleth his own servants, and delivereth unto them talents, to the end that they may trade therewith. After a long time, the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them, and to them that have done well He rendereth a reward of their labours, but that servant which was careless of his master’s work He condemneth.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

Sed homo iste, péregre proficiscens, servis suis bona sua trádidit; quia fidelibus suis spiritualia dona concessit. Et uni quidem quinque talenta, alii duo, alii vero commisit unum. Quinque étenim sunt corporis sensus, videlicet: visus, audítus, gustus, odorátus et tactus. Quinque ergo talentis, donum quinque sensuum, id est, exteriórum sciéntia, exprimitur.

But that man travelling into a far country delivered unto his servants his goods and so doth our Redeemer give spiritual gifts unto His faithful people. “And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one.” There are five bodily senses that is, sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. By the five talents therefore are signified the five senses, that is, outward knowledge. By the two, wit and work. And by the figure of the one talent, understanding, which is alone.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning
* And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding. Alleluia.
V. Watch therefore, for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
R. And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding. Alleluia.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding. Alleluia.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Sed is, qui quinque talénta acceperat, alia quinque lucrátus est: quia sunt nonnulli, qui, etsi interna ac mystica penetrare nesciunt, pro intentióne tamen supernæ pátriæ docent recta quos possunt; de ipsis exterióribus, quæ accepérunt, duplum taléntum portant; dumque se a carnis petulántia et a terrenárum rerum ambitu atque a visibílium voluptate custódiunt, ab his étiam alios admonéndo compescunt. Et sunt nonnulli, qui, quasi duobus talentis ditati, intelléctum atque operatiónem percipiunt, subtília de internis intelligunt, mira in exterióribus operántur; cumque et intelligéndo et operando aliis prædicant, quasi duplicátum de negótio lucrum reportant.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Reading 9
And so he that had received five talents, gained other five talents for some there be who, while yet they are not able to go on unto things inward and mystic, do yet so desire our Fatherland which is above, that they teach well all whom they can, and of those very outward things which they have received make gain double. These are they which keep themselves clean from the unruly motions of the flesh, and from the lust of the world, and from the delight of things which are seen, and, by their preaching, keep other men also clean from all these things. And some there are who receive, as their two talents, the power to think and the power to work. These are they which inwardly understand dark things, and outwardly work wonders. And these, since they preach unto others, both through their understanding and their works, gain, as it were, double, for the talents which they have received.
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.
