Invitatory {Antiphon from the Common or Feast}
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. For the Lord will not cast off his people: for in his hand are all the ends of the earth, and the heights of the mountains are his.
Ant. O come, let us worship.
For the sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. (genuflect) Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us: For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
Today if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts: As in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness: where your fathers tempted me, they proved me, and saw my works.
Ant. O come, let us worship.
Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart. And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Iste 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.

De libro primo Regum
1 Reg 13:1-4
1 Fílius uníus anni erat Saul, cum regnáre cœpísset; duobus autem annis regnávit super Israël.
2 Et elégit sibi Saul tria millia, de Israël. Et erant cum Saul duo míllia in Machmas et in monte Bethel, mille autem cum Jónatha in Gábaa Bénjamin. Porro céterum pópulum remísit unumquémque in tabernácula sua.
3 Et percússit Jónathas statiónem Philisthinórum, quæ erat in Gábaa. Quod cum audíssent Philísthiim Saul cécinit búccina in omni terra dicens: Audiant Hebrǽi.
4 Et univérsus Israël audívit hujuscémodi famam: Percússit Saul statiónem Philisthinórum, et eréxit se Israël advérsus Philísthiim; clamávit ergo pópulus post Saul in Gálgala.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Peccávi super númerum arenæ maris, et multiplicáta sunt peccáta mea: et non sum dignus vidére altitúdinem cæli præ multitúdine iniquitátis meæ: quóniam irritávi iram tuam,
* Et malum coram te feci.
V. Quóniam iniquitátem meam ego cognósco: et delíctum meum contra me est semper, quia tibi soli peccávi.
R. Et malum coram te feci.

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

Lesson from the first book of Samuel
1 Sam 13:1-4
1 Saul was a child of one year when he began to reign, and he reigned two years over Israel.
2 And Saul chose him three thousand men of Israel: and two thousand were with Saul in Machmas, and in mount Bethel: and a thousand with Jonathan in Gabaa of Benjamin, and the rest of the people he sent back every man to their dwellings.
3 And Jonathan smote the garrison of the Philistines which was in Gabaa. And when the Philistines had heard of it, Saul sounded the trumpet over all the land, saying: Let the Hebrews hear.
4 And all Israel heard this report: Saul hath smitten the garrison of the Philistines: and Israel took courage against the Philistines. And the people were called together after Saul to Galgal.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. My sins are many, yea, they are more in number than the sands of the sea; I am not worthy to look up toward heaven because of the multitude of my iniquities; for I have provoked thee to anger;
* And done evil in thy sight.
V. For I acknowledge my transgression, and my sin is ever before me, for against thee only have I sinned.
R. And done evil in thy sight.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adjuváre dignétur. Amen.

Lectio 2
1 Reg 13:5-8
5 Et Philísthiim congregáti sunt ad præliándum contra Israël, trigínta míllia curruum et sex míllia équitum et réliquum vulgus, sicut arena, quæ est in líttore maris plurima. Et ascendéntes castrametáti sunt in Machmas ad oriéntem Betháven.
6 Quod cum vidíssent viri Israël se in arcto pósitos, (afflíctus enim erat pópulus) abscondérunt se in spelúncis et in ábditis, in petris quoque et in antris et in cistérnis.
7 Hebrǽi autem transiérunt Jordánem in terram Gad et Gálaad. Cumque adhuc esset Saul in Gálgala, univérsus pópulus perterritus est, qui sequebátur eum.
8 Et exspectávit septem diébus juxta plácitum Samuélis; et non venit Sámuel in Gálgala, dilapsúsque est pópulus ab eo.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Exaudísti, Dómine, oratiónem servi tui, ut ædificárem templum nómini tuo:
* Bénedic et sanctífica domum istam in sempitérnum, Deus Israël.

Reading 2
1 Sam 13:5-8
5 The Philistines also were assembled to fight against Israel, thirty thousand chariots, and six thousand horsemen, and a multitude of people besides, like the sand on the sea shore for number. And going up they camped in Machmas at the east of Bethaven.
6 And when the men of Israel saw that they were straitened, (for the people were distressed,) they hid themselves in caves, and in thickets, and in rocks, and in dens, and in pits.
7 And some of the Hebrews passed over the Jordan into the land of Gad and Galaad. And when Saul was yet in Galgal, all the people that followed him were greatly afraid.
8 And he waited seven days according to the appointment of Samuel, and Samuel came not to Galgal, and the people slipt away from him.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O Lord, Thou hast hearkened unto the prayer of thy servant, that I might build a temple unto thy Name,
* O God of Israel, bless Thou, and hallow this house for ever.
V. O Lord, Who keepest covenant with thy servants that walk before thee in all their heart.
R. O God of Israel, bless Thou, and hallow this house for ever.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Spíritus Sancti grátia illúminet sensus et corda nostra. Amen.

1 Reg 13:9-14
9 Ait ergo Saul: Afférte mihi holocáustum et pacífica. Et óbtulit holocáustum.
10 Cumque complésset offerens holocáustum, ecce Samuel veniébat; et egréssus est Saul óbviam ei ut salutáret eum.
11 Locutúsque est ad eum Samuel: Quid fecísti? Respóndit Saul: Quia vidi quod pópulus dilaberétur a me, et tu non veneras juxta plácitos dies, porro Philísthiim congregáti fúerant in Machmas,
12 Dixi: Nunc descéndent Philísthiim ad me in Gálgala, et fáciem Dómini non placávi. Necessitáte compúlsus, óbtuli holocáustum.
13 Dixítque Sámuel ad Saul: Stulte egísti, nec custodísti mandáta Dómini Dei tui, quæ præcépit tibi. Quod si non fecisses, jam nunc præparásset Dóminus regnum tuum super Israël in sempitérnum;
14 Sed nequáquam regnum tuum ultra consúrget. Quæsívi Dóminus sibi virum juxta cor suum et præcépit ei Dóminus ut esset dux super pópulum suum, eo quod non serváveris quæ præcépit Dóminus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Audi, Dómine, hymnum et oratiónem, quam servus tuus orat coram te hódie, ut sint óculi tui apérti, et aures tuæ inténtæ,
* Super domum istam die ac nocte.
V. Réspice, Dómine, de sanctuário tuo, et de excélso cælórum habitáculo.
R. Super domum istam die ac nocte.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Super domum istam die ac nocte.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the grace of the Holy Spirit enlighten all our hearts and minds. Amen.

Reading 3
1 Sam 13:9-14
9 Then Saul said: Bring me the holocaust, and the peace offerings. And he offered the holocaust.
10 And when he had made an end of offering the holocaust, behold Samuel came: and Saul went forth to meet him and salute him.
11 And Samuel said to him: What hast thou done? Saul answered: Because I saw that the people slipt from me, and thou wast not come according to the days appointed, and the Philistines were gathered together in Machmas,
12 I said: Now will the Philistines come down upon me to Galgal, and I have not appeased the face of the Lord. Forced by necessity, I offered the holocaust.
13 And Samuel said to Saul: Thou hast done foolishly, and hast not kept the commandments of the Lord thy God, which he commanded thee. And if thou hadst not done thus, the Lord would now have established thy kingdom over Israel for ever.
14 But thy kingdom shall not continue. The Lord hath sought him a man according to his own heart: and him hath the Lord commanded to be prince over his people, because thou hast not observed that which the Lord commanded.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Hearken, O Lord, unto the cry and to the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee today, that thine eyes may be open and thine ears attend;
* Toward this house day and night.
V. Look down from thine high and holy place, O Lord, even from heaven thy dwelling.
R. Toward this house, day and night.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Toward this house, day and night.

Reading 4
Ferdinand de Bullones, afterwards called Anthony, was born of decent parents at Lisbon in Portugal, on the Feast of the Assumption, in the year of grace 1195. They gave him a godly training, and while he was still a young man, he joined an Institute of Canons Regular. However, when the bodies of the five holy martyred Friars Minor, who had just suffered in Morocco for Christ's sake, were brought to Coimbra, the desire to be himself a martyr took a strong hold upon him, and in 1220 he left the Canons Regular and became a Franciscan. The same yearning led him to attempt to go among the Saracens, but he fell sick on the way, and, being obliged to turn back, the ship in which he had embarked for Spain was driven by stress of weather to Sicily.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord made him honourable, and defended him from his enemies, and kept him safe from those that lay in wait for him;
* And gave him perpetual glory.
V. He went down with him into the pit, and left him not in bonds.
R. And gave him perpetual glory.

From Sicily he came to Assisi to attend the General Chapter of his Order, and thence withdrew himself to the Hermitage of Monte Paolo near Bologna, where he gave himself up for a long while to consideration of the things of God, to fastings, and to watchings. Being afterwards ordained Priest and sent to preach the Gospel, his wisdom and fluency were very marked, and drew on him such admiration of men, that the Pope, once hearing him preach, called him The Ark of the Covenant. One of his chief points was to expend all his strength in attacking heresies, whence he gained the name of the Heretics' everlasting Hammer.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord loved him and beautified him; He clothed him with a robe of glory,
* And crowned him at the gates of Paradise.

He was the first of his Order who, on account of his excellent gift of teaching, publicly lectured at Bologna on the interpretation of Holy Scripture, and directed the studies of his brethren. He traveled through many provinces. The year before his death he came to Padua, where he left some remarkable records of his holy life. After having undergone much toil for the glory of God, full of good works and miracles, he fell asleep in the Lord upon the 13th day of June, in the year of salvation 1231. Pope Gregory IX. enrolled his name among those of the Holy Confessors.

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 virtutes operatus est, et de omni corde suo laudavit Dominum:
* Ipse intercedat pro peccatis omnium populorum.
V. Ecce homo sine querela, verus Dei cultor, abstinens se ab omni opere malo, et permanens in innocentia sua.
R. Ipse intercedat pro peccatis omnium populorum.

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.
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.
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 præcincti, et lucernæ ardentes in mánibus vestris:
* Et vos símiles homínibus exspectantibus dóminum suum, quando revertatur a núptiis.
V. Vigiláte ergo, quia nescitis qua hora Dóminus vester ventúrus sit.
R. Et vos símiles homínibus exspectantibus dóminum suum, quando revertatur a núptiis.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et vos símiles homínibus exspectantibus dóminum suum, quando revertatur a núptiis.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
