Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Iste Conféssor Dómini, coléntes
Quem pie laudant pópuli per orbem,
Hac die lætus méruit suprémos
Laudis honóres.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

6 Qui testimónium reddidérunt caritáti tuæ in conspéctu ecclésiæ: quos, benefáciens, dedúces digne Deo.
7 Pro nómine enim eius profécti sunt, nihil accipiéntes a géntibus.
8 Nos ergo debémus suscípere huiúsmodi, ut cooperatóres simus veritátis.
9 Scripsíssem fórsitan ecclésiæ: sed is qui amat primátum gérere in eis, Diótrephes, non récipit nos:
10 Propter hoc si vénero, commonébo eius ópera, quæ facit, verbis malígnis gárriens in nos: et quasi non ei ista suffíciant, neque ipse súscipit fratres: et eos qui suscípiunt, próhibet, et de ecclésia éicit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

3 John 1:5-10
5 Dearly beloved, thou dost faithfully whatever thou dost for the brethren, and that for strangers,
6 Who have given testimony to thy charity in the sight of the church: whom thou shalt do well to bring forward on their way in a manner worthy of God.
7 Because, for his name they went out, taking nothing of the Gentiles.
8 We therefore ought to receive such, that we may be fellow helpers of the truth.
9 I had written perhaps to the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the pre-eminence among them, doth not receive us.
10 For this cause, if I come, I will advertise his works which he doth, with malicious words prating against us. And as if these things were not enough for him, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and them that do receive them he forbiddeth, and casteth out of the church.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord hath set His beauty above the stars;
* His loveliness is in the clouds of heaven, and His Name endureth for ever. Alleluia.

67:14 If you sleep among the midst of lots, you shall be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, * and the hinder parts of her back with the paleness of gold.
67:15 When he that is in heaven appointeth kings over her, * they shall be whited with snow in Selmon.
67:16 The mountain of God is a fat mountain, a curdled mountain, a fat mountain; * Why suspect, ye curdled mountains?
67:17 A mountain in which God is well pleased to dwell: * for there the Lord shall dwell unto the end.
67:18 The chariot of God is attended by ten thousands; thousands of them that rejoice: * the Lord is among them in Sinai, in the holy place.
67:19 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive; * thou hast received gifts in men.
67:19 Yea for those also that do not believe, * the dwelling of the Lord God.
67:20 Blessed be the Lord day by day: * the God of our salvation will make our journey prosperous to us.
67:21 Our God is the God of salvation: * and of the Lord, of the Lord are the issues from death.
67:22 But God shall break the heads of his enemies: * the hairy crown of them that walk on in their sins.
67:23 The Lord said: I will turn them from Basan, * I will turn them into the depth of the sea:
67:24 That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thy enemies; * the tongue of thy dogs be red with the same.

Paschalis Baylon, paupéribus piisque paréntibus in oppido Turris Formosæ, Seguntinæ diœcesis, in Aragónia natus, a téneris annis plura dedit futuræ sanctitátis indicia. Sortítus ánimam bonam ac rerum cæléstium appríme studiosam, puerítiam atque adolescéntiam in gregis custódia transegit; quam ille vivéndi ratiónem ideo præcipue diligebat, quod humilitáti fovendæ ac innocéntiæ conservandæ in primis utilem atque opportunam judicáret. Erat in victu modicus, in oratióne assiduus, tantáque apud coævos et socios florebat auctoritate et grátia, ut eórum lites compónens, erróres corrigens, ignorantiam erudiens ac desidiam éxcitans, velut ómnium parens et magister máximo studio colerétur ac amarétur: beátus étiam tum a plerisque appellatus.

Paschal Baylon was the son of poor and godly parents, in the town of Torre Hermosa, and Diocese of Sagunta in Aragon, in the year of our Lord 1540. From his childhood he gave indications of a holy life. He was naturally of a good disposition, and very wishful to learn about heavenly things. His boyhood and youth he passed in the occupation of a shepherd. This way of life pleased him well, because he thought it one useful and fitted to nourish lowliness and keep innocency. He ate little, and was instant in prayer. He had great weight and favour with his fellows and neighbours, whose quarrels he healed, corrected their mistakes, enlightened their ignorance, and roused them from idleness. They all greatly honoured and loved him, as though he were their father and teacher, and even then many called him "Beato," that is "the Blessed."
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. Alleluia.

R. And gave him perpetual glory. Alleluia.

Qui vero in sæculo, terra nempe desérta et inaquósa, adeo feliciter adoléverat, flos convallium, plantátus in domo Dómini, mirum ubíque sparsit sanctitátis odórem. Igitur Paschalis arrepto vitæ severioris instituto, atque in ordine Minórum strictioris observantiæ Discalceatórum cooptatus, exsultávit ut gigas ad curréndam viam suam; totumque se Dómino excoléndum tradens, dies noctesque cogitabat, qua se ratióne magis ei magisque conformaret. Ita factum est brevi, ut eum, tamquam seraphicæ perfectiónis exemplar, ipsi quoque provectiores imitándum sibi propónerent. Ipse autem in humili serviéntium gradu constitútus, se velut ómnium peripséma réputans, ardua quæque et abjecta domus ministeria, véluti jure quodam peculiari sibi débita, summa cum hilaritate suscipiebat, et exercebat humilitate ac patiéntia pari. Carnem spiritui quandoque reluctari nitentem jugi maceratióne afflictávit, atque in servitútem redégit; spíritum vero assidua sui abnegatióne ferventiórem in dies ad anterióra extendebat.

In a world which was to him "a dry land, where no water is" the vallies, "planted in the House of the Lord" Ps. xci. 14, whose strange sweetness spread all around. When he took upon him an harder life, by entering the Institute of barefooted Grey Friars, of the strict Observance, "he rejoiced as a strong man to run a race" Ps. xviii. 6, and gave himself up altogether to serve the Lord, thinking by day and by night only how he might attain more and more to have that mind in him which was also in Christ Jesus Phil. ii. 5. And so it came to pass in a little while, that his very elders set him before them for their model, as a pattern of a man seeking to be perfect in the path of the Seraphic Order. Paschal himself held the lowly place of a lay brother, and deemed himself "the off-scouring of all things" 1. Cor. iv. 13. He took most cheerfully, and discharged with the greatest humility and patience, the hardest and meanest work of the house, as though such were his peculiar right. His flesh would sometimes rebel against his spirit, but he broke it under the yoke of mortification, and brought it into subjection. Day by day the spirit of self-denial waxed stronger in him, and "forgetting those things which were behind, he reached forth unto those things which were before" Phil. iii. 13.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

Ejusdem veritátem inter hæreticos publice palamque proféssus, multa et gravia ob eam causam perpéssus est; crebro étiam ad necem petítus, sed singulari Dei providéntia ab impiórum mánibus ereptus.

Quibus aliisque virtútibus insignem, ac miraculis tam in vita quam post mortem clarum, Paulus quintus Pontifex maximus illum Beátum appellávit; Alexander autem octavus Sanctórum catálogo adscripsit; tandem Leo décimus tertius peculiarem cœtuum eucharisticórum, item societátum ómnium a sanctíssima Eucharistia, sive quæ in posterum futuræ sunt, patronum cælestem declarávit et constítuit.

Reading 6
The the Virgin Mother of God he had vowed himself when he was but a little lad, and he paid her every day the services of a son, and trusted her as a mother. It is hard to tell how intense was the love which bound him to the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist, a love which seemed literally stronger than death, for when his dead body was found lying on the bier, its eyes opened and shut twice when the Sacred Host was lifted up, to the amazement of all that were there. When he was among heretics, he suffered much and grievously at their hands for plainly and openly telling the truth touching this Sacrament they often sought after him to murder him, but by the singular Providence of God he was delivered from those wicked men. When he was at prayer he often became utterly insensible, and his soul fainted away with the love of God. During these trances it was believed that he received directly from heaven that knowledge which he had, and which enabled him, although a man altogether rough and unlettered, to answer the hardest questions upon the mysteries of the faith, and even to write some books. At last, full of good works, he joyfully passed away to be ever with the Lord, at the hour foretold by himself, on the Feast of Pentecost, the 17th day of May, in the year of salvation 1592, on which day also he had been born fifty -two years before. Illustrious for the graces above mentioned, and for the miracles which he worked both during his life and after his death, he was named Blessed by Pope Paul V., and Alexander VIII. enrolled him among the Saints.
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. Alleluia.

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

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Lucam
Luc 12:35-40
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Sint lumbi vestri præcincti, et lucernæ ardentes in mánibus vestris. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Gregórii Papæ
Homilia 13 in Evang.
Sancti Evangélii, fratres caríssimi, apérta vobis est léctio recitata. Sed ne alíquibus ipsa ejus planities alta fortásse videátur, eam sub brevitate transcurrimus, quátenus ejus expositio ita nescientibus fiat cógnita, ut tamen sciéntibus non sit onerosa. Dóminus dicit: Sint lumbi vestri præcincti. Lumbos enim præcingimus, cum carnis luxuriam per continentiam coarctamus. Sed quia minus est, mala non ágere, nisi étiam quisque studeat, et bonis opéribus insudare, protinus additur: Et lucernæ ardentes in mánibus vestris. Lucernas quippe ardentes in mánibus tenemus, cum per bona ópera próximis nostris lucis exémpla monstramus. De quibus profécto opéribus Dóminus dicit: Lúceat lux vestra coram homínibus, ut vídeant ópera vestra bona, et glorificent Patrem vestrum qui in cælis est.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Iste est, qui ante Deum magnas virtútes operátus est, et de omni corde suo laudávit Dóminum:
* Ipse intercedat pro peccátis ómnium populórum, allelúja.
V. Ecce homo sine querela, verus Dei cultor, ábstinens se ab omni opere malo, et pérmanens in innocéntia sua.
R. Ipse intercedat pro peccátis ómnium populórum, allelúja.

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

Reading 7
From the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 12:35-40
At that time, Jesus said unto His disciples: Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning. And so on.

Homily by Pope St. Gregory the Great.
13th on the Gospels.
Dearly beloved brethren, the words of the Holy Gospel, which have just been read, lie open before you, and, lest their very plainness should make them seem to some to be hard, we will go through them with such shortness as that neither may they which understand not remain unenlightened, nor they which understand be wearied. The Lord saith Let your loins be girded about. Now, we gird our loins about, when by continency we master the lustful inclination of the flesh. But, forasmuch as it sufficeth not for a man to abstain from evil deeds, if he strive not to join thereto the earnest doing of good works, it is immediately added And your lights burning. Our lights burn when, by good works, we give bright example to our neighbour; concerning which works the Lord saith Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father Which is in heaven. Matth. v. 16.
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 praised the Lord with all his heart.
* May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them. Alleluia.
V. Behold a man without blame, a worshipper of God in truth, keeping himself clean from every evil work, and abiding still in his innocency.
R. May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them. Alleluia.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Duo autem sunt, quæ jubentur, et lumbos restringere, et lucernas tenere: ut et munditia sit castitátis in córpore, et lumen veritátis in operatióne. Redemptori étenim nostro unum sine áltero placére nequáquam potest: si aut is qui bona agit, adhuc luxuriæ inquinamenta non déserit: aut is qui castitate præeminet, necdum se per bona ópera exercet. Nec castitas ergo magna est sine bono ópere, nec opus bonum est aliquod sine castitate. Sed et si utrúmque agitur, restat, ut quisquis ille est, spe ad supérnam pátriam tendat, et nequáquam se a vítiis pro mundi hujus honestate contineat.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Sint lumbi vestri praecincti, et lucernae ardentes in manibus vestris:
* Et vos similes hominibus exspectantibus dominum suum, quando revertatur a nuptiis. Allelúja
V. Vigilate ergo, quia nescitis qua hora Dominus vester venturus sit.
R. Et vos similes hominibus exspectantibus dominum suum, quando revertatur a nuptiis. Allelúja.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et vos similes hominibus exspectantibus dominum suum, quando revertatur a nuptiis. Allelúja.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
Here, then, are two commandments, to gird our loins about, and to keep our lights burning the cleanness of purity in our body, and the light of the truth in our works. Whoso hath the one and not the other, pleaseth not thereby our Redeemer; that is, he pleaseth Him not which doth good works, but bridleth not himself from the pollutions of lust, neither he which is eminent in chastity, but exerciseth not himself in good works. Neither is chastity a great thing without good works, nor good works anything without chastity. And if any man do both, it remaineth that he must look by hope toward our Fatherland above, and not have for his reason wherethrough he turneth himself away from vice, the love of honour in this present world.
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
Et vos símiles homínibus exspectantibus dóminum suum, quando revertatur a núptiis: ut cum vénerit et pulsaverit, conféstim aperiant ei. Venit quippe Dóminus, cum ad judícium properat: pulsat vero, cum jam per ægritudinis molestias esse mortem vicinam designat. Cui conféstim aperimus, si hunc cum amóre suscipimus. Aperire enim judici pulsanti non vult, qui exíre de córpore trépidat: et vidére eum, quem contempsisse se meminit, júdicem formidat. Qui autem de sua spe et operatióne secúrus est, pulsanti conféstim aperit, quia lætus júdicem sústinet; et, cum tempus propinquæ mortis advénerit, de glória retributionis hilarescit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 9
And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding that, when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. The Lord cometh at the hour of judgment He knocketh when, by the pains of sickness, He biddeth us know that death is nigh. To Him open we immediately, if we receive Him in love. Whoso feareth to leave this body, will not open to the Judge when He knocketh, for he dreadeth to see that Judge, Whom he knoweth that he hath despised. But whosoever knoweth that his hope and works are built upon a good foundation, when he heareth the Judge knock, openeth to Him immediately, for to such an one that coming is blessed, yea, when the hour of death is at hand, such an one haileth with gladness a glorious reward.
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.
