Incipit
Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.

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.

Allelúja.
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.
Alleluia.

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.

52:1 Dixit insípiens in corde suo: * Non est Deus.
52:2 Corrúpti sunt, et abominábiles facti sunt in iniquitátibus: * non est qui fáciat bonum.
52:3 Deus de cælo prospéxit super fílios hóminum: * ut vídeat si est intéllegens, aut requírens Deum.
52:4 Omnes declinavérunt, simul inútiles facti sunt: * non est qui fáciat bonum, non est usque ad unum.
52:5 Nonne scient omnes qui operántur iniquitátem, * qui dévorant plebem meam ut cibum panis?
52:6 Deum non invocavérunt: * illic trepidavérunt timóre, ubi non erat timor.
52:6 Quóniam Deus dissipávit ossa eórum qui homínibus placent: * confúsi sunt, quóniam Deus sprevit eos.
52:7 Quis dabit ex Sion salutáre Israël? * cum convérterit Deus captivitátem plebis suæ, exsultábit Jacob, et lætábitur Israël.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Psalm 52 [1]
52:1 The fool said in his heart: * There is no God.
52:2 They are corrupted, and become abominable in iniquities: * there is none that doth good.
52:3 God looked down from heaven on the children of men: * to see if there were any that did understand, or did seek God.
52:4 All have gone aside, they are become unprofitable together, * there is none that doth good, no not one.
52:5 Shall not all the workers of iniquity know, * who eat up my people as they eat bread?
52:6 They have not called upon God: * there have they trembled for fear, where there was no fear.
52:6 For God hath scattered the bones of them that please men: * they have been confounded, because God hath despised them.
52:7 Who will give out of Sion the salvation of Israel? * when God shall bring back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Psalmus 54 [2]
54:2 Exáudi, Deus, oratiónem meam, et ne despéxeris deprecatiónem meam: * inténde mihi, et exáudi me.
54:3 Contristátus sum in exercitatióne mea: * et conturbátus sum a voce inimíci, et a tribulatióne peccatóris.
54:4 Quóniam declinavérunt in me iniquitátes: * et in ira molésti erant mihi.
54:5 Cor meum conturbátum est in me: * et formído mortis cécidit super me.
54:6 Timor et tremor venérunt super me: * et contexérunt me ténebræ.
54:7 Et dixi: Quis dabit mihi pennas sicut colúmbæ, * et volábo, et requiéscam?
54:8 Ecce, elongávi fúgiens: * et mansi in solitúdine.
54:9 Exspectábam eum, qui salvum me fecit * a pusillanimitáte spíritus et tempestáte.
54:10 Præcípita, Dómine, dívide linguas eórum: * quóniam vidi iniquitátem, et contradictiónem in civitáte.
54:11 Die ac nocte circúmdabit eam super muros ejus iníquitas: * et labor in médio ejus, et injustítia.
54:12 Et non defécit de platéis ejus * usúra, et dolus.
54:13 Quóniam si inimícus meus maledixísset mihi, * sustinuíssem útique.
54:13 Et si is, qui óderat me, super me magna locútus fuísset, * abscondíssem me fórsitan ab eo.
54:14 Tu vero, homo unánimis: * dux meus, et notus meus:
54:15 Qui simul mecum dulces capiébas cibos: * in domo Dei ambulávimus cum consénsu.
54:16 Véniat mors super illos: * et descéndant in inférnum vivéntes:
54:16 Quóniam nequítiæ in habitáculis eórum: * in médio eórum.
54:17 Ego autem ad Deum clamávi: * et Dóminus salvábit me.
54:18 Véspere, et mane, et merídie narrábo et annuntiábo: * et exáudiet vocem meam.
54:19 Rédimet in pace ánimam meam ab his, qui appropínquant mihi: * quóniam inter multos erant mecum.
54:20 Exáudiet Deus, et humiliábit illos, * qui est ante sǽcula.

54:23 Jacta super Dóminum curam tuam, et ipse te enútriet: * non dabit in ætérnum fluctuatiónem justo.
54:24 Tu vero, Deus, dedúces eos, * in púteum intéritus.
54:24 Viri sánguinum, et dolósi non dimidiábunt dies suos: * ego autem sperábo in te, Dómine.

Psalm 54 [2]
54:2 Hear, O God, my prayer, and despise not my supplication: * be attentive to me and hear me.
54:3 I am grieved in my exercise; * and am troubled, at the voice of the enemy, and at the tribulation of the sinner.
54:4 For they have cast iniquities upon me; * and in wrath they were troublesome to me.
54:5 My heart is troubled within me: * and the fear of death is fallen upon me.
54:6 Fear and trembling are come upon me: * and darkness hath covered me.
54:7 And I said: Who will give me wings like a dove, * and I will fly and be at rest?
54:8 Lo, I have gone far off flying away; * and I abode in the wilderness.
54:9 I waited for him that hath saved me * from pusillanimity of spirit, and a storm.
54:10 Cast down, O Lord, and divide their tongues; * for I have seen iniquity and contradiction in the city.
54:11 Day and night shall iniquity surround it upon its walls: * and in the midst thereof are labour, and injustice.
54:12 And usury and deceit * have not departed from its streets.
54:13 For if my enemy had reviled me, * I would verily have borne with it.
54:13 And if he that hated me had spoken great things against me, * I would perhaps have hidden myself from him.
54:14 But thou a man of one mind, * my guide, and my familiar.
54:15 Who didst take sweetmeats together with me: * in the house of God we walked with consent.
54:16 Let death come upon them, * and let them go down alive into hell.
54:16 For there is wickedness in their dwellings: * in the midst of them.
54:17 But I have cried to God: * and the Lord will save me.
54:18 Evening and morning, and at noon I will speak and declare: * and he shall hear my voice.
54:19 He shall redeem my soul in peace from them that draw near to me: * for among many they were with me.
54:20 God shall hear, * and the Eternal shall humble them.
54:20 For there is no change with them, and they have not feared God: * he hath stretched forth his hand to repay.
54:21 They have defiled his covenant, they are divided by the wrath of his countenance, * and his heart hath drawn near.
54:22 His words are smoother than oil, * and the same are darts.
54:23 Cast thy care upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: * he shall not suffer the just to waver for ever.
54:24 But thou, O God, shalt bring them down * into the pit of destruction.
54:24 Bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; * but I will trust in thee, O Lord.
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 55 [3]
55:2 Miserére mei, Deus, quóniam conculcávit me homo: * tota die impúgnans tribulávit me.

55:4 Ab altitúdine diéi timébo: * ego vero in te sperábo.
55:5 In Deo laudábo sermónes meos, in Deo sperávi: * non timébo quid fáciat mihi caro.
55:6 Tota die verba mea exsecrabántur: * advérsum me omnes cogitatiónes eórum in malum.
55:7 Inhabitábunt et abscóndent: * ipsi calcáneum meum observábunt.
55:8 Sicut sustinuérunt ánimam meam, pro níhilo salvos fácies illos: * in ira pópulos confrínges.
55:9 Deus, vitam meam annuntiávi tibi: * posuísti lácrimas meas in conspéctu tuo.
55:9 Sicut et in promissióne tua: * tunc converténtur inimíci mei retrórsum:
55:10 In quacúmque die invocávero te: * ecce, cognóvi, quóniam Deus meus es.
55:11 In Deo laudábo verbum, in Dómino laudábo sermónem: * in Deo sperávi, non timébo quid fáciat mihi homo.
55:12 In me sunt, Deus, vota tua, * quæ reddam, laudatiónes tibi.
55:13 Quóniam eripuísti ánimam meam de morte, et pedes meos de lapsu: * ut pláceam coram Deo in lúmine vivéntium.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Psalm 55 [3]
55:2 Have mercy on me, O God, for man hath trodden me under foot; * all the day long he hath afflicted me fighting against me.
55:3 My enemies have trodden on me all the day long; * for they are many that make war against me.
55:4 From the height of the day I shall fear: * but I will trust in thee.
55:5 In God I will praise my words, in God I have put my trust: * I will not fear what flesh can do against me.
55:6 All the day long they detested my words: * all their thoughts were against me unto evil.
55:7 They will dwell and hide themselves: * they will watch my heel.
55:8 As they have waited for my soul, for nothing shalt thou save them: * in thy anger thou shalt break the people in pieces.
55:9 O God, I have declared to thee my life: * thou hast set my tears in thy sight,
55:9 As also in thy promise. * Then shall my enemies be turned back.
55:10 In what day soever I shall call upon thee, * behold I know thou art my God.
55:11 In God will I praise the word, in the Lord will I praise his speech. * In God have I hoped, I will not fear what man can do to me.
55:12 In me, O God, are vows to thee, * which I will pay, praises to thee:
55:13 Because thou hast delivered my soul from death, my feet from falling: * that I may please in the sight of God, in the light of the living.
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.

56:2 Miserére mei, Deus, miserére mei: * quóniam in te confídit ánima mea.

56:3 Clamábo ad Deum altíssimum: * Deum qui benefécit mihi.
56:4 Misit de cælo, et liberávit me: * dedit in oppróbrium conculcántes me.
56:4 Misit Deus misericórdiam suam, et veritátem suam, * et erípuit ánimam meam de médio catulórum leónum: dormívi conturbátus.
56:5 Fílii hóminum dentes eórum arma et sagíttæ: * et lingua eórum gládius acútus.
56:6 Exaltáre super cælos, Deus, * et in omnem terram glória tua.

56:2 And in the shadow of thy wings will I hope, * until iniquity pass away.
56:3 I will cry to God the most High; * to God who hath done good to me.

Lectio 1
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.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Euge, serve bone et fidélis, quia in pauca fuísti fidélis, supra multa te constituam:
* Intra in gáudium Dómini tui. Allelúja.
V. Dómine, quinque talenta tradidisti mihi, ecce ália quinque superlucratus sum.
R. Intra in gáudium Dómini tui. Allelúja.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Eternal Father bless us with an eternal blessing. Amen.

Reading 1
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.

R. Ecce sacerdos magnus, qui in diebus suis placuit Deo:
* Ideo jurejurando fecit illum Dominus crescere in plebem suam. Allelúja.
V. Benedictionem omnium gentium dedit illi, et testamentum suum confirmavit super caput ejus.
R. Ideo jurejurando fecit illum Dominus crescere in plebem suam. Allelúja.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Son, the Sole-begotten, mercifully bless and keep us. Amen.

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.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Spíritus Sancti grátia illúminet sensus et corda nostra. Amen.

De Epístola beáti Jacóbi Apostóli
Jas 4:1-4
1 Unde bella et lites in vobis? nonne hinc: ex concupiscéntiis vestris, quæ mílitant in membris vestris?
2 Concupíscitis, et non habétis: occíditis, et zelátis: et non potéstis adipísci: litigátis, et belligerátis, et non habétis, propter quod non postulátis.
3 Pétitis, et non accípitis: eo quod male petátis: ut in concupiscéntiis vestris insumátis.
4 Adúlteri, nescítis quia amicítia huius mundi inimíca est Dei? quicúmque ergo volúerit amícus esse sǽculi huius, inimícus Dei constitúitur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

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.

R. Being seen of them forty days after that He had suffered, and speaking of the kingdom of God. Alleluia.
* And while they beheld, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. Alleluia.
V. And, eating together with them, He commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the Promise of the Father.
R. And while they beheld, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. Alleluia.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Psalmus 57 [5]
57:2 Si vere útique justítiam loquímini: * recta judicáte, fílii hóminum.
57:3 Étenim in corde iniquitátes operámini: * in terra injustítias manus vestræ concínnant.
57:4 Alienáti sunt peccatóres a vulva, erravérunt ab útero: * locúti sunt falsa.
57:5 Furor illis secúndum similitúdinem serpéntis: * sicut áspidis surdæ, et obturántis aures suas,
57:6 Quæ non exáudiet vocem incantántium: * et venéfici incantántis sapiénter.

57:8 Ad níhilum devénient tamquam aqua decúrrens: * inténdit arcum suum donec infirméntur.
57:9 Sicut cera, quæ fluit, auferéntur: * supercécidit ignis, et non vidérunt solem.

Nocturn II.
Psalm 57 [5]
57:2 If in very deed you speak justice: * judge right things, ye sons of men.
57:3 For in your heart you work iniquity: * your hands forge injustice in the earth.
57:4 The wicked are alienated from the womb; they have gone astray from the womb: * they have spoken false things.
57:5 Their madness is according to the likeness of a serpent: * like the deaf asp that stoppeth her ears:
57:6 Which will not hear the voice of the charmers; * nor of the wizard that charmeth wisely.
57:7 God shall break in pieces their teeth in their mouth: * the Lord shall break the grinders of the lions.
57:8 They shall come to nothing, like water running down; * he hath bent his bow till they be weakened.
57:9 Like wax that melteth they shall be taken away: * fire hath fallen on them, and they shall not see the sun.
57:10 Before your thorns could know the brier; he swalloweth them up, * as alive, in his wrath.
57:11 The just shall rejoice when he shall see the revenge: * he shall wash his hands in the blood of the sinner.
57:12 And man shall say: If indeed there be fruit to the just: * there is indeed a God that judgeth them on the earth.
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.

58:3 Deliver me from them that work iniquity, * and save me from bloody men.
58:4 For behold they have caught my soul: * the mighty have rushed in upon me:
58:5 Neither is it my iniquity, nor my sin, O Lord: * without iniquity have I run, and directed my steps.
58:6 Rise up thou to meet me, and behold: * even thou, O Lord, the God of hosts, the God of Israel.

58:8 Behold they shall speak with their mouth, and a sword is in their lips: * for who, say they, hath heard us?
58:9 But thou, O Lord, shalt laugh at them: * thou shalt bring all the nations to nothing.
58:10 I will keep my strength to thee: for thou art my protector: * my God, his mercy shall prevent me.
58:12 God shall let me see over my enemies: slay them not, * lest at any time my people forget.
58:12 And scatter them by thy power; * and bring them down, O Lord, my protector:
58:13 For the sin of their mouth, and the word of their lips: * and let them be taken in their pride.
58:13 And for their cursing and lying they shall be talked of, when they are consumed: * when they are consumed by thy wrath, and they shall be no more.
58:14 And they shall know that God will rule Jacob, * and all the ends of the earth.
58:15 They shall return at evening and shall suffer hunger like dogs: * and shall go round about the city.
58:16 They shall be scattered abroad to eat, * and shall murmur if they be not filled.
58:17 But I will sing thy strength: * and will extol thy mercy in the morning.
58:17 For thou art become my support, * and my refuge, in the day of my trouble.
58:18 Unto thee, O my helper, will I sing, for thou art God my defence: * my God my mercy.

59:5 Thou hast shewn thy people hard things; * thou hast made us drink the wine of sorrow.
59:6 Thou hast given a warning to them that fear thee: * that they may flee from before the bow:
59:7 That thy beloved may be delivered. * Save me with thy right hand, and hear me.
59:8 God hath spoken in his holy place: * I will rejoice, and I will divide Sichem; and will mete out the vale of tabernacles.
59:9 Galaad is mine, and Manasses is mine: * and Ephraim is the strength of my head.
59:9 Juda is my king: * Moab is the pot of my hope.
59:10 Into Edom will I stretch out my shoe: * to me the foreigners are made subject.
59:11 Who will bring me into the strong city? * who will lead me into Edom?
59:12 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? * and wilt not thou, O God, go out with our armies?

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. Cujus sanctitátis opinióne evulgata, ab Honorio secundo summo Pontifice ecclésiæ Eugubinæ invítus præfícitur, et episcopalis consecratiónis munere decorátur.

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.

R. I have found David My servant, with My holy oil have I anointed him
* For My hand shall help him. Alleluia.

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

Biennio, antequam ex hac vita migraret, cum diutinis afflicetarétur infirmitátibus, inter acerbíssimos corporis cruciátus velut aurum in fornace purgátum, Deo grátias indesinenter agebat. Adveniénte autem sacro Pentecostes die, cum multis annis ecclésiam sibi commissam cumma cum laude gubernasset, sanctis opéribus ac miraculis clarus quiévit in pace. Quem Cælestinus Papa tertius in Sanctórum númerum retulit. Ejus virtus præcipue in effugandis spirítibus immundis elucet.

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.

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. Alleluia.
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. Alleluia.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Psalm 61 [9]
61:2 Shall not my soul be subject to God? * for from him is my salvation.
61:3 For he is my God and my saviour: * he is my protector, I shall be moved no more.
61:4 How long do you rush in upon a man? * you all kill, as if you were thrusting down a leaning wall, and a tottering fence.
61:5 But they have thought to cast away my price; I ran in thirst: * they blessed with their mouth, but cursed with their heart.
61:6 But be thou, O my soul, subject to God: * for from him is my patience.
61:7 For he is my God and my saviour: * he is my helper, I shall not be moved.
61:8 In God is my salvation and my glory: * he is the God of my help, and my hope is in God.
61:9 Trust in him, all ye congregation of people: pour out your hearts before him. * God is our helper for ever.
61:10 But vain are the sons of men, the sons of men are liars in the balances: * that by vanity they may together deceive.
61:11 Trust not in iniquity, and cover not robberies: * if riches abound, set not your heart upon them.
61:12 God hath spoken once, these two things have I heard, that power belongeth to God, and mercy to thee, O Lord; * for thou wilt render to every man according to his works.
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.

Psalm 63 [10]
63:2 Hear, O God, my prayer, when I make supplication to thee: * deliver my soul from the fear of the enemy.
63:3 Thou hast protected me from the assembly of the malignant; * from the multitude of the workers of iniquity.
63:4 For they have whetted their tongues like a sword; * they have bent their bow a bitter thing, to shoot in secret the undefiled.
63:6 They will shoot at him on a sudden, and will not fear: * they are resolute in wickedness.
63:6 They have talked of hiding snares; * they have said: Who shall see them?
63:7 They have searched after iniquities: * they have failed in their search.
63:7 Man shall come to a deep heart: * and God shall be exalted.
63:8 The arrows of children are their wounds: * and their tongues against them are made weak.
63:9 All that saw them were troubled; * and every man was afraid.
63:10 And they declared the works of God: * and understood his doings.
63:11 The just shall rejoice in the Lord, and shall hope in him: * and all the upright in heart shall be praised.

67:6 God in his holy place: * God who maketh men of one manner to dwell in a house:
67:7 Who bringeth out them that were bound in strength; * in like manner them that provoke, that dwell in sepulchres.
67:8 O God, when thou didst go forth in the sight of thy people, * when thou didst pass through the desert:
67:9 The earth was moved, and the heavens dropped at the presence of the God of Sinai, * at the presence of the God of Israel.

67:33 Sing to God, ye kingdoms of the earth: * sing ye to the Lord:
67:34 Sing ye to God, who mounteth above the heaven of heavens, * to the east.
67:35 Behold he will give to his voice the voice of power: * give ye glory to God for Israel, * his magnificence, and his power is in the clouds.

Homilía sancti Gregórii Papæ
Homilía 9 in Evangelia
Léctio sancti Evangélii, fratres caríssimi, solicite consideráre nos admonet, ne nos, qui plus ceteris in hoc mundo accepisse aliquid cernimur, ab Auctore mundi gravius inde judicemur. Cum enim augéntur dona, ratiónes étiam crescunt donórum. Tanto ergo esse humílior atque ad serviéndum Deo promptior quisque debet ex munere, quanto se obligatiórem esse conspicit in reddenda ratióne. Ecce homo, qui peregre proficiscitur, servos suos vocat, eisque ad negotium talénta partitur. Post multum vero témporis positurus ratiónem revértitur: bene operántes pro apportato lucro remúnerat, servum vero a bono opere torpéntem damnat.

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.

Quis itaque iste homo est qui péregre proficiscitur, nisi Redémptor noster, qui, in ea carne quam assumpserat, ábiit in cælum? Carnis enim locus proprius terra est; quæ quasi ad peregrina ducitur, dum per Redemptórem nostrum in cælo collocátur. 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. Duobus vero, intelléctus et operátio designátur. Unius autem talénti nómine, intelléctus tantummodo designátur.

What other, then, is that man travelling into a far country but our Redeemer, Who is gone up from us into heaven in that Flesh Which He had taken into Himself? For the earth is the home of the Flesh, Which travelleth into a far country when our Redeemer giveth It a place in heaven. 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.

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 He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

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.
