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.

67:13 Rex virtútum dilécti dilécti: * et speciéi domus divídere spólia.
67:14 Si dormiátis inter médios cleros, pennæ colúmbæ deargentátæ, * et posterióra dorsi ejus in pallóre auri.
67:15 Dum discérnit cæléstis reges super eam, nive dealbabúntur in Selmon: * mons Dei, mons pinguis.
67:16 Mons coagulátus, mons pinguis: * ut quid suspicámini montes coagulátos?
67:17 Mons, in quo beneplácitum est Deo habitáre in eo: * étenim Dóminus habitábit in finem.
67:18 Currus Dei decem míllibus múltiplex, míllia lætántium: * Dóminus in eis in Sina in sancto.
67:19 Ascendísti in altum, cepísti captivitátem: * accepísti dona in homínibus.
67:19 Étenim non credéntes, * inhabitáre Dóminum Deum.
67:20 Benedíctus Dóminus die quotídie: * prósperum iter fáciet nobis Deus salutárium nostrórum.
67:21 Deus noster, Deus salvos faciéndi: * et Dómini Dómini éxitus mortis.
67:22 Verúmtamen Deus confrínget cápita inimicórum suórum: * vérticem capílli perambulántium in delíctis suis.
67:23 Dixit Dóminus: Ex Basan convértam, * convértam in profúndum maris:
67:24 Ut intingátur pes tuus in sánguine: * lingua canum tuórum ex inimícis, ab ipso.

Psalm 67(12-24) [5]
67:12 The Lord shall give the word to them that preach good tidings, * with great power.
67:13 The king of powers is of the beloved, * of the beloved; and the beauty of the house shall divide spoils.
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.

Joánnes Gualbertus, Floréntiæ nobili genere ortus, dum patri óbsequens rem militarem sequitur, Ugo, únicus ejus frater, occíditur a consanguíneo. Quem cum solum et inérmem sancto Parasceves die Joánnes, armis ac milítibus stipatus, óbvium haberet, ubi néuter álterum poterat declináre, ob sanctæ crucis reveréntiam, quam homicida supplex, mortem jamjam subiturus, brácchiis signabat, vitam ei clementer indulget. Hoste in fratrem recepto, próximum sancti Miniátis templum oratúrus ingréditur, ubi adoratam Crucifixi imáginem caput sibi fléctere cónspicit. Quo mirábili facto permotus Joánnes, Deo exínde, étiam invíto patre, militare decernit, atque ibidem propriis sibi mánibus comam totondit, ac monasticum hábitum índuit : adeoque piis ac religiosis virtútibus brevi coruscat, ut multis se perfectiónis specimen ac normam præbéret ; ita ut, ejusdem loci abbate defuncto, communi ómnium voto in superiórem eligerétur. At Dei famulus, cupiens subesse potius quam præesse, ad majora divina voluntáte servatus, ad Camaldulénsis eremi íncolam Romualdum proficíscitur, a quo cælicum sui institúti vaticinium áccipit ; tum suum ordinem sub regula sancti Benedicti apud Umbrosam vallem instituit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Honestum fecit illum Dóminus, et custodívit eum ab inimícis, et a seductoribus tutavit illum:
* Et dedit illi claritátem ætérnam.
V. Justum dedúxit Dóminus per vias rectas, et osténdit illi regnum Dei
R. Et dedit illi claritátem ætérnam.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May God the Father Omnipotent, be to us merciful and clement. Amen.

Reading 4
John Gualberto was the son of a noble family at Florence. In accordance with the wishes of his father, he became a soldier. While he was in that profession, his only brother, Hew, was slain by a cousin. On a certain Good Friday, John, armed and accompanied by soldiers, met the murderer, alone and defenceless, in a narrow way, where neither could turn aside. As he was at the point to kill him, the wretch fell on his knees, and stretched out his arms in the form of the Cross, adjuring him, for the sake of that sign, to forgive him and out of reverence for the Cross he had mercy on him and spared his life. After pardoning his enemy, he went into the Church of St. Minias, which was hard by, to pray. And there he saw the image of Jesus crucified, which had that day received the worship of the faithful, bow its head to him. By this miracle John was so moved, that he laid aside soldiering, even against his father's wishes cut off his hair with his own hands, at the Convent of St. Minias, and clad himself in the garb of a monk. In a short while he so shone with all godly and monkish graces, that he became a pattern of excellency to many. When the Abbat of that house died, the monks all chose John to succeed him. But the servant of God desired to obey, more than to command, and, being kept by God for greater things, he betook himself to one Romuald, a dweller in the hermitage at Camaldoli. Through Romuald he received a revelation from heaven, and forthwith founded an Order of his own under the Rule of St. Benedict, in the valley called Vallombrosa.
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.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Deinde, plurimis ad eum ob ejus sanctitátis famam undique convolántibus, una cum iis in socios adscitis, ad hæreticam et simoníacam pravitátem exstirpandam et apostolicam fidem propagandam sédulo incumbit, innumera proptérea in se et suis incommoda expertus. Nam, ut eum ejusque socios adversarii perdant, noctu sancti Salvii cœnóbium repénte aggrediúntur, templum incendunt, ædes demoliúntur, et mónachos omnes lethali vulnere sauciant ; quos vir Dei único crucis signo incólumes prótinus reddit, et, Petro ejus mónacho per immensum ardentissimúmque ignem illæso mirabíliter transeúnte, optatam sibi et suis tranquillitátem óbtinet. Inde simoníacam labem ab Etruria éxpulit, ac in tota Italia fidem prístinæ integritáti restituit.

Many gathered themselves to him, drawn by the fame of his holy life. Them he took for his comrades, and laboured earnestly among them to cleanse the Church in those parts from the pollution of heresy and simony, and spread abroad the Apostolic Faith. He and his had to fight with almost countless hardships. Certain enemies broke by night into the monastery of San Salvi, to destroy John and his monks, set the church on fire, pulled down the huts, and mortally wounded all the monks but the man of God perfectly healed them all by the sign of the Cross. One of his monks named Peter also passed unhurt through a vast and raging fire. At length John and his disciples got the peace which they longed for. He purged Tuscany of the pollution of simony, and restored the faith throughout all Italy to its first purity.
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.
V. The Lord hath put on him the breast-plate of faith, and hath adorned him.
R. And crowned him at the gates of Paradise.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.

Multa fúnditus eréxit monasteria, eademque et alia ædificiis ac regulari observántia instaurata, sanctis légibus communívit. Ad egénos alendos sacram supelléctilem véndidit : ad ímprobos coërcendos eleménta sibi famulari conspéxit : ad dæmones comprimendos crucem quasi ensem adhibuit. Demum abstinentiis, vigiliis, jejuniis, oratiónibus, carnis maceratiónibus ac senio confectus, dum infirma valetúdine gravarétur. Davídica illa verba persæpe repetebat : Sitívit ánima mea ad Deum fortem vivum : quando véniam et apparébo ante fáciem Dei? Jamque morti próximus, convocatos discipulos ad fraternam concordiam cohortátur, et in brevículo, cui consepeliri vóluit, jussit hæc scribi : Ego Joánnes credo et confiteor fidem, quam sancti Apóstoli prædicavérunt, et sancti Patres in quatuor conciliis confirmavérunt. Tandem, triduano Angelórum obsequio dignátus, septuagesimum octavum annum agens, apud Passinianum, ubi summa veneratióne cólitur, migrávit ad Dóminum, anno salútis millesimo septuagesimo tertio, quarto Idus Julii. Quem Cælestinus tertius, innumeris miraculis clarum, in Sanctórum númerum rétulit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Iste homo perfécit ómnia quæ locútus est ei Deus, et dixit ad eum: Ingredere in réquiem meam:
* Quia te vidi justum coram me ex ómnibus géntibus.
V. Iste est qui contempsit vitam mundi, et pervénit ad cæléstia regna.
R. Quia te vidi justum coram me ex ómnibus géntibus.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Quia te vidi justum coram me ex ómnibus géntibus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Spirit's fire Divine in our hearts enkindled shine. Amen.

Reading 6
He entirely built several monasteries, and furnished them and others with buildings. He restored in them the strict observance of the Rule, and gave them holy laws. He sold the furniture of the Church to feed the poor, and found the very elements subject to him to bend stubborn hearts withal. He used the Cross like a sword to drive out devils. In his old age, worn out by abstinence, watching, fasts, prayers, and punishing of the flesh, his strength utterly gave way, and he often repeated the words of David My soul thirsteth for God, for the mighty God, for the living God when shall I come and appear before God Ps. xli. 2. When he was at the point of death, he gathered his disciples together and exhorted them to love one another, and, after a little while, ordered the following words to be written down, which he wished should be buried with him I, John, do believe and confess that Faith which the Holy Apostles preached, and which the Holy Fathers have ratified in the four Councils. At length, at Passignano, where he is held in the highest reverence, after a vision of angels which lasted three days, he passed away to be with the Lord, upon the 12th day of July, in the 78th year of his own age, and in that of salvation 1073. He is illustrious for countless miracles, and Celestine III. enrolled his name among those of 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.
V. This is he which loved not his life in this world, and is come unto an everlasting kingdom.
R. For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.

68:4 I have laboured with crying; my jaws are become hoarse: * my eyes have failed, whilst I hope in my God.
68:5 They are multiplied above the hairs of my head, * who hate me without cause.
68:5 My enemies are grown strong who have wrongfully persecuted me: * then did I pay that which I took not away.
68:6 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; * and my offences are not hidden from thee.
68:7 Let not them be ashamed for me, who look for thee, O Lord, * the Lord of hosts.
68:7 Let them not be confounded on my account, * who seek thee, O God of Israel.
68:8 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; * shame hath covered my face.

68:15 Draw me out of the mire, that I may not stick fast: * deliver me from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

68:20 Thou knowest my reproach, and my confusion, * and my shame.
68:21 In thy sight are all they that afflict me; * my heart hath expected reproach and misery.
68:21 And I looked for one that would grieve together with me, * but there was none: and for one that would comfort me, and I found none.
68:22 And they gave me gall for my food, * and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
68:23 Let their table become as a snare before them, * and a recompense, and a stumblingblock.
68:24 Let their eyes be darkened that they see not; * and their back bend thou down always.
68:25 Pour out thy indignation upon them: * and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
68:26 Let their habitation be made desolate: * and let there be none to dwell in their tabernacles.
68:27 Because they have persecuted him whom thou hast smitten; * and they have added to the grief of my wounds.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum.
Matt 5:43-48
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Audístis quia dictum est: Díliges próximum tuum, et ódio habebis inimícum tuum. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Hierónymi Presbýteri.
Liber 1 Comment. in cap. 5. Matth.
Ego autem dico vobis: Dilígite inimícos vestros; benefácite his qui odérunt vos. Multi præcepta Dei, imbecillitate sua, non Sanctórum viribus æstimántes, putant esse impossibília quæ præcepta sunt: et dicunt sufficere virtútibus, non odisse inimícos: ceterum diligere, plus præcipi, quam humana natúra patiátur. Sciéndum est ergo, Christum non impossibília præcipere, sed perfécta. Quæ fecit David in Saul, et in Absalom: Stephanus quoque Martyr pro inimícis lapidántibus deprecátus est: et Paulus anáthema cupit esse pro persecutóribus suis. Hæc autem Jesus et docuit et fecit, dicens: Pater, ignosce illis: quod enim faciunt, nesciunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

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

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 Matthew
Matt 5:43-48
At that time, Jesus said unto His disciples: Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour and hate thine enemy. And so on.

Homily by St. Jerome, Priest at Bethlehem.
Bk. i., Cowan. on Matth. v. and vi.
But I say unto you Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you. There are many who judge of the commandments of the Lord by their own weakness, and not by the strength of His Saints and so deem Him to have commanded things impossible. These are they who think that not to hate their enemies is all that they are able to do and that to command us to love them, is to command more than man's nature can bear. It behoveth then to know, that this which Christ commandeth is not impossible, albeit perfect. This is what David did in respect of Saul and Absalom the martyr Stephen also prayed for his enemies, even while they were stoning him and Paul could wish that himself were accursed from Christ for his persecutors. (Rom. ix. well as taught, when He said Father, forgive them for they know not what they do. Luke xxiii. 34.
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
In réliquis opéribus bonis intérdum potest áliquis qualemcúmque excusatiónem præténdere; ad habéndam vero dilectiónem nullus se póterit excusare. Potest mihi áliquis dicere, Non possum jejunare; numquid potest dicere, Non possum amare? Potest áliquis dicere, Virginitátem non possum servare, non possum res totas véndere et paupéribus erogare; numquid potest dicere, Non possum diligere inimícos?
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
For the leaving undone other good works, some excuse can sometimes be given but no man can give an excuse for being loveless. Such and such an one may say to me, I am not able to fast but can he say, I am not able to love Such and such an one may say, I am not able to remain a virgin, I am not able to sell all that I have and give to the poor but can he say, I am not able to love my enemies
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
Non enim ibi aut pedes laborant, currendo, aures audiendo, aut manus operando laxántur, ut nos per ipsam excusatiónem liberare conémur. Non nobis dícitur: ite ad Oriéntem, et quærite caritátem; navigate ad Occidéntem, et inveniétis dilectiónem. Intus in nostro corde est, ubi redire jubemur, dicénte prophéta: Redíte, prævaricatores, ad cor. Non enim in longinquis regiónibus invenítur quod a nobis pétitur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Reading 9
This is a work wherein the feet are not wearied with running, nor the ears with hearing, neither do the hands fail from labour, that we should set up thereby an excuse to rid us of the duty. It is not said unto us Go to the East, and search for charity sail to the West, and ye shall find love. It is into our own inner hearts that we are to go, as saith the Prophet Bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors. Isa. xlvi. 8. What is asked of us is not to be found afar off.
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.
