Credo in Spíritum Sanctum, sanctam Ecclésiam cathólicam, Sanctórum communiónem, remissiónem peccatórum, carnis resurrectiónem, vitam ætérnam. Amen.

Start
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation: But deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace; The Lord is with thee; Blessed art thou amongst women, And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried: he descended into hell; the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sitteth at the right hand of God the Father almighty: from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins. The resurrection of the body. And life everlasting. Amen.

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.

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.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Deus tuórum mílitum
Sors, et córona, prǽmium,
Laudes canéntes Mártyris
Absólve nexu críminis.

Hic nempe mundi gáudia,
Et blanda fraudum pábula
Imbúta felle députans,
Pervénit ad cæléstia.

Pœnas cucúrrit fórtiter,
Et sústulit viríliter,
Fundénsque pro te sánguinem,
Ætérna dona póssidet.

Ob hoc precátu súpplici
Te póscimus, piíssime;
In hoc triúmpho Mártyris
Dimítte noxam sérvulis.

* Laus et perénnis glória
Patri sit, atque Fílio,
Sancto simul Paráclito,
In sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
O God, of those that fought thy fight,
Portion, and prize, and crown of light,
Break every bond of sin and shame
As now we praise thy martyr's name.

He recked not of the world's allure,
But sin and pomp of sin forswore:
Knew all their gall, and passed them by,
And reached the throne prepared on high.

Bravely the course of pain he ran,
And bare his torments as a man:
For love of thee his blood outpoured,
And thus obtained the great reward.

With humble voice and suppliant word
We pray thee therefore, holy Lord,
While we thy martyr's feast-day keep,
Forgive thy loved and erring sheep.

* Glory and praise for aye be done
To God the Father, and the Son,
And Holy Ghost, who reign on high,
One God, to all eternity.
Amen.

1:3 Et erit tamquam lignum, quod plantátum est secus decúrsus aquárum, * quod fructum suum dabit in témpore suo:
1:3 Et fólium ejus non défluet: * et ómnia quæcúmque fáciet, prosperabúntur.
1:4 Non sic ímpii, non sic: * sed tamquam pulvis, quem proícit ventus a fácie terræ.

Psalm 1 [1]
1:1 Bem-aventurado o varão que não foi no conselho dos ímpios, nem ficou no caminho dos pecadores, * e na cadeira pestilencial se não sentou:
1:2 Mas sua vontade está na lei do Senhor, * e dia e noite meditará na sua lei.
1:3 Ele será como a árvore, que está plantada junto ao curso das águas, * que a seu tempo dará seu fruto:
1:4 Cuja folha não murchará: * e prosperará tudo quanto fizer.
1:5 Não assim os ímpios, não assim: * mas serão como o pó que o vento dispersa da face da terra.
1:6 Por isso os ímpios não ressuscitarão no juízo: * nem os pecadores no concílio dos justos.
1:7 Porque o Senhor conhece o caminho dos justos: * e o caminho dos ímpios perecerá.

2:4 Qui hábitat in cælis, irridébit eos: * et Dóminus subsannábit eos.

2:1 Por que razão se embraveceram as gentes: * e os povos cousas vãs meditaram?
2:2 Os reis da terra levantaram-se e os príncipes reuniram-se * contra o Senhor e contra o seu Cristo.
2:3 Rompamos os seus laços: * e sacudamos de nós o seu jugo.
2:4 Aquele que habita no céu rir-se-á deles: * e o Senhor os ridicularizá.
2:5 Ele então lhes falará na sua ira, * e conturbá-los-á na sua fúria.
2:6 Eu, porém, fui por Ele constituído Rei sobre Sião, seu santo monte, * para pregar a sua doutrina.
2:7 Disse-me o Senhor: * tu és meu filho, eu hoje te gerei.
2:8 Pede-me e dar-te-ei as gentes como tua herança, * e estenderei o teu domínio aos confins da terra.
2:9 Governá-las-ás com vara de ferro, * e quebrá-las-ás como um vaso do oleiro.

Sir 51:1-7
1 A prayer of Jesus the son of Sirach. I will give glory to thee, O Lord, O King, and I will praise thee, O God my Saviour.
2 I will give glory to thy name: for thou hast been a helper and protector to me.
3 And hast preserved my body from destruction, from the snare of an unjust tongue, and from the lips of them that forge lies, and in the sight of them that stood by, thou hast been my helper.
4 And thou hast delivered me, according to the multitude of the mercy of thy name, from them that did roar, prepared to devour.
5 Out of the hands of them that sought my life, and from the gates of afflictions, which compassed me about:
6 From the oppression of the flame which surrounded me, and in the midst of the fire I was not burnt.
7 From the depth of the belly of hell, and from an unclean tongue, and from lying words, from an unjust king, and from a slanderous tongue:
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

4:4 Sabei, pois, que o Senhor fez maravilhoso o seu santo: * o Senhor escutar-me-á, quando a Ele clamar.
4:5 Irai-vos e não pequeis: * do que dizeis nos vossos corações, nos vossos leitos arrependei-vos.
4:6 Oferecei sacrifícios de justiça e esperai no Senhor. * Muitos dizem: quem nos mostrará o bem?
4:7 Gravada está sobre nós a luz de vossa face, ó Senhor: * no meu coração infundistes alegria.
4:8 Pelo fruto do seu trigo, vinho e azeite * se multiplicam.
4:9 Em paz dormirei * e tranquilo descansarei;
4:10 Porque Vós, ó Senhor, de forma singular * na esperança me firmastes.
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.

Sermo sancti Leónis Papæ
In Natali S. Laurentii, post initium
Cum furor gentílium potestátum in electíssima quæque Christi membra sævíret, ac præcípue eos qui órdinis erant sacerdotális impéteret, in levítam Lauréntium, qui non solum ministério sacramentórum sed étiam dispensatióne ecclesiásticæ substántiæ præeminébat, ímpius persecútor efférbuit, dúplicem sibi prædam de uníus viri comprehensióne promíttens; quem, si fecísset sacræ pecúniæ traditórem, fáceret étiam veræ religiónis exsórtem. Armátur itaque gémina face homo pecúniæ cúpidus et veritátis inimícus: avarítia, ut rápiat aurum; impietáte, ut áuferat Christum. Póstulat sibi ab immaculáto sacrárii prǽsule opes ecclesiásticas, quibus avidíssimus inhiábat, inférri. Cui levíta castíssimus, ubi eas repósitas habéret osténdens, numerosíssimos sanctórum páuperum óbtulit greges, in quorum victu atque vestítu inamissíbiles condíderat facultátes, quæ tanto intégrius erant salvæ, quanto sánctius probabántur expénsæ.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Quo progréderis sine fílio, pater? quo, sacérdos sancte, sine diácono próperas?
* Tu nunquam sine minístro sacrifícium offérre consuéveras.
V. Quid ergo in me displícuit paternitáti tuæ? numquid degénerem me probásti? Experíre utrum idóneum minístrum elégeris, cui commisísti Domínici sánguinis dispensatiónem.
R. Tu nunquam sine minístro sacrifícium offérre consuéveras.

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

Reading 4
The Lesson is taken From the Sermons of Pope St. Leo the Great.
For St. Lawrence's Birthday
Then the fury of the heathen power was raging against Christ's choicest members, in aiming in especial at such as were of the Priestly Order, the wicked persecutor turned fiercely on the Levite Lawrence, who was remarkable, not only as a minister of the Sacraments, but also as distributor of the property of the Church, promising himself a double prey by the taking of this one man, namely, to make him betray the consecrated treasure, and apostatise from the true faith. The wretch was thus doubly fired by his greed for money and his hatred of the truth, his greed urging him to seize the gold, and his wickedness to rob a believer of Christ. He demanded of the upright keeper of the sacred treasury, to bring him the wealth of the Church, for which his rapacity longed. But the pureminded Levite showed him where these riches were stored, by bringing before him a great multitude of holy poor, by the feeding and clothing of whom he had laid up all. that he had, in such wise, that it could be lost no more, and was now all the safer, as the way of spending it had been the holier.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Father, whither goest thou without thy son? Holy Priest, dost thou fare hence without a Deacon?
* It hath never been thy use to offer sacrifice without a minister.
V. What therefore in me hath displeased thee, my Father? Hast thou tried me and found me unworthy to be called thy son? Make trial if I am indeed a useless servant, even I, whom thou didst choose, to commit unto me the administration of the Cup of the Blood of the Lord.
R. It hath never been thy use to offer sacrifice without a minister.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Fremit ergo prædo frustrátus, et in ódium religiónis, quæ talem divitiárum usum instituísset, ardéscens, direptiónem thesáuri potióris aggréditur, apud quem nullam denariórum substántiam reperísset; ut illud depósitum, quo sacrátius erat dives, auférret. Renuntiáre Christo Lauréntium jubet, et solidíssimam illam levítici ánimi fortitúdinem diris parat urgére supplíciis; quorum ubi prima nil óbtinent, vehementióra succédunt. Láceros artus et multa vérberum sectióne conscissos subjécto prǽcipit igne torréri; ut per cratem férream, quæ jam de fervóre contínuo vim in se habéret uréndi, conversórum altérna mutatióne membrórum, fíeret cruciátus veheméntior et pœna prodúctior.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Noli me derelínquere, pater sancte, quia thesáuros tuos jam expéndi.
* Non ego te désero, fili, neque derelínquo; sed majóra tibi debéntur pro fide Christi certámina.
V. Nos quasi senes levióris pugnæ cursum recípimus, te autem quasi júvenem manet gloriósior de tyránno triúmphus: post tríduum me sequéris sacerdótem levíta.
R. Non ego te désero, fili, neque derelínquo; sed majóra tibi debéntur pro fide Christi certámina.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
The baffled thief chafed, and his hatred for the godliness which had appointed such an use of riches, flaming forth, he attempted the robbery of a dearer treasure from him in whose hands he had found no coin, even to take from him that possession wherein he had holier wealth. He commanded Lawrence to deny Christ, and made ready to assail the immovable firmness of the Levite's soul with appalling tortures, of which the failure of the first was followed by the application of others more fearful still. When his limbs had been mangled and cut by many stripes, his tormentor ordered them to be roasted over a fire. He was laid on an iron grating, the bars of which by the continual fire below, became themselves burning hot, so that by turning and rearranging his limbs upon them, his agony was kept keener, and his suffering made to last longer.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Leave me not, holy Father, for I have spent already thy treasures.
* I leave thee not, my son, neither forsake thee but there awaiteth thee for Christ's truth a wrestling sterner than mine.
V. We, as old men, have an easier race to run; for thee in thy youth, there is kept a more glorious victory over the enemy; yet three days, and thou shalt follow me, the Deacon behind the Priest.
R. I leave thee not, my son, neither forsake thee but there awaiteth thee for Christ's truth a wrestling sterner than mine.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ignem sui amóris accéndat Deus in córdibus nostris. Amen.

Nihil óbtines, nihil próficis, sæva crudélitas. Subtráhitur torméntis tuis matéria mortális, et, Lauréntio in cælos abeúnte, tu déficis flammis tuis. Superári cáritas Christi flamma non pótuit; et ségnior fuit ignis, qui foris ussit, quam qui intus accéndit. Sævísti persecútor in Mártyrem: sævísti, et auxísti palmam, dum ággeras pœnam. Nam quid non ad victóris glóriam ingénium tuum réperit, quando in honórem transiérunt triúmphi étiam instruménta supplícii? Gaudeámus ígitur, dilectíssimi, gáudio spiritáli, et de felicíssimo íncliti viri fine gloriémur in Dómino, qui est mirábilis in Sanctis suis, in quibus nobis et præsídium constítuit et exémplum; atque ita per univérsum mundum claríficat glóriam suam, ut a solis ortu usque ad occásum, leviticórum lúminum coruscánte fulgóre, quam clarificáta est Jerosólyma Stéphano, tam illústris fíeret Roma Lauréntio.

Reading 6
Cruel savage! thou gainest nothing, and advancest nothing. That which can die passeth by degrees beyond the reach of thy tortures, and when Lawrence departeth to heaven, thou and thy fires are conquered. The love of Christ could not be overcome by the flames, and the glow that scorched the outward man was colder than that that burnt in the inner. Thou didst rage, O thou persecutor thou didst rage against the Martyr, but by making keener his agony, thou hast but made nobler his palm. What did thine imagination fail to discover that could minister to the glory of him who conquered thee, since even the means of his execution have turned to the honour of his triumph? Wherefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us rejoice with spiritual joy, and make our boast in the Lord, Who is wonderful in His Saints, Ps. lxvii. 36, and hath given unto us, in them an help and an example. Let us, I say, make our boast of the extraordinary happiness of the illustrious Lawrence's end, in that same Lord Who hath so glorified the name of His servant throughout the whole world, that from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof, wheresoever the constellation of the Levitical lights shineth, even as Jerusalem is made glorious by Stephen, so Rome is made famous by Lawrence.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The blessed Lawrence cried and said: My God do I worship, and Him only do I serve
* And therefore I am not afraid of thy tortures.
V. The darkness is no darkness to me, but the night is all as clear as the morning, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
R. And therefore I am not afraid of thy tortures.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And therefore I am not afraid of thy tortures.

20:2 Satisfizestes-lhe os anseios do coração: * e não defraudastes os pedidos de seus lábios.
20:3 Porque o prevenistes com bênçãos de doçura: * cingistes a sua cabeça com uma coroa de pedras preciosas.
20:4 Vida Vos pediu: * e concedestes-lhes largos dias pelos séculos dos séculos.
20:5 Grande é a sua glória, devido à salvação que lhe destes: * glória e grande esplendor poreis sobre ele.
20:6 Porque dele fareis uma fonte de bênçãos perpétuas: * enchê-lo-eis de alegria, mostrando-lhe o vosso rosto.
20:7 Porque o rei no Senhor espera: * e a misericórdia do Altíssimo torná-lo-á inabalável.
20:8 Caia a vossa mão sobre todos vossos inimigos: * caia a vossa direita sobre todos os que Vos aborrecem.
20:9 Os poreis em fornalha acesa ao mostrar-lhes vosso rosto: * o Senhor na sua ira conturbá-los-á e o fogo devorá-los-á.
20:10 Exterminareis o seu fruto da terra: * e a sua descendência de entre os filhos dos homens.
20:11 Porque urdiram contra Vós males: * formaram planos que não puderam estabelecer.
20:12 Vós, porém, os poreis em fuga: * nos vossos resquícios preparareis o rosto deles.
20:13 Exaltai-Vos, ó Senhor, no vosso poder: * nós cantaremos e louvaremos as vossas maravilhas.
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.

Ant. When I was asked, I acknowledged thee to be the Lord; now that I am roasted, I give thee thanks.
V. Magna est glória ejus in salutári tuo.
R. Glóriam et magnum decórem impónes super eum.
V. His glory is great in thy salvation.
R. Honour and great majesty shalt Thou lay upon him.
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:
V. Et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem:
R. Sed líbera nos a malo.
Absolutio. A vínculis peccatórum nostrórum absólvat nos omnípotens et miséricors Dóminus. Amen.
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.
V. And lead us not into temptation:
R. But deliver us from evil.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Joánnem
Joannes 12:24-26
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Amen, amen dico vobis, nisi granum fruménti cadens in terram, mórtuum fúerit, ipsum solum manet. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Augustíni Epíscopi
Tract. 51 in Joannem, sub medium
Ipse Dóminus Jesus erat granum mortificándum et multiplicándum; mortificándum infidelitáte Judæórum, multiplicándum fide populórum. Jam vero exhórtans ad passiónis suæ sectánda vestígia, Qui amat, inquit, ánimam suam, perdet eam. Quod duóbus modis intéllegi potest. Qui amat, perdet; id est, si amas, perdes. Si cupis vitam tenére in Christo, noli mortem timére pro Christo. Item álio modo: Qui amat ánimam suam, perdet eam; noli amáre, ne perdas; noli amáre in hac vita, ne perdas in ætérna vita.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. In cratícula te Deum non negávi,
* Et ad ignem applicátus te Dóminum Jesum Christum conféssus sum.
V. Probásti, Dómine, cor meum, et visitásti nocte.
R. Et ad ignem applicátus te Dóminum Jesum Christum conféssus sum.

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

From the Holy Gospel according to John
John 12:24-26
At that time, Jesus said unto His disciples: Amen, Amen, I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone. And so on.

Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
From Tract 51 on John
The Lord Jesus was Himself a corn of wheat that was to die and bring forth much fruit to die by the unbelief of the Jews, and to bring forth much fruit in the faith of the Gentiles. He, exhorting men to follow His steps, saith: He that loveth his life shall lose it. Now, these words may be understood in two ways. First he that loveth his life shall lose it, that is, If thou love life, thou wilt lose it; if thou wilt live for ever in Christ, refuse not to die for Christ. Or secondly, he that loveth his life shall lose it; love not then that which thou shalt lose; love not this present life, so that thou be thereby in jeopardy of losing life eternal.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Upon the bars I denied thee not, O God.
* And when they put me to the fire, I acknowledged thee to be the Lord, O Jesus Christ.
V. Lord, Thou hast proved mine heart and visited it by night.
R. And when they put me to the fire, I acknowledged thee to be the Lord, O Jesus Christ.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Hoc autem, quod postérius dixi, magis habére vidétur evangélicus sensus; séquitur enim: Et qui odit ánimam suam in hoc mundo, in vitam ætérnam custódit eam. Ergo, quod supra dictum est, Qui amat, subintellégitur in hoc mundo, in vitam ætérnam ipse custódit eam. Magna et mira senténtia, quemádmodum sit hóminis in ánimam suam amor ut péreat, ódium ne péreat. Si male amáveris, tunc odísti; si bene óderis, tunc amásti. Felíces, qui odérunt custodiéndo, ne perdant amándo.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. O Hippólyte, si credíderis in Dóminum Jesum Christum,
* Et thesáuros tibi osténdo, et vitam ætérnam promítto.
V. Beátus Lauréntius Hippólyto dixit: Si credis in Dóminum Jesum Christum.
R. Et thesáuros tibi osténdo, et vitam ætérnam promítto.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et thesáuros tibi osténdo, et vitam ætérnam promítto.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
What this second interpretation is the meaning of the Gospel, appeareth most probable from the words which follow: And he that hateth his life in this world, shall keep it unto life eternal. From which we may suppose the sense of the first words to be: He that loveth his life in this world shall lose it unto life eternal. This is a great and marvellous saying, showing how a man may so love life as to lose life, and so hate life as to keep life. If thou love it too well, then dost thou hate it; if thou hate it with an holy hatred, then dost thou love it. Blessed are they that, lest they should so love it as to lose it, so hate it as to keep it.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O Hippolytus, if thou believest in the Lord Jesus Christ,
* I lay before thee treasure an hundredfold, and promise thee life everlasting.
V. The blessed Lawrence said unto Hippolytus: If thou believest in the Lord Jesus Christ.
R. I lay before thee treasure an hundred-fold, and promise thee life everlasting.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. I lay before thee treasure an hundred-fold, and promise thee life everlasting.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 9
Sed vide ne tibi subrépat, ut teípsum velis interímere, sic intellegéndo, quod debes odísse in hoc mundo ánimam tuam. Hinc enim quidam malígni atque pervérsi hómines, et in seípsis crudelióres et sceleratióres homicídæ, flammis se donant, aquis se præfócant, præcipítio se collídunt, et péreunt. Hoc Christus non dócuit; immo étiam diábolo præcipítium suggerénti respóndit: Redi retro, sátana: scriptum est, Non tentábis Dóminum, Deum tuum. Petro autem dixit, signíficans qua morte clarificatúrus erat Deum: Cum esses júnior, cingébas te, et ambulábas quo volébas; cum autem senúeris, alter te cinget et feret quo tu non vis. Ubi satis expréssit, non a seípso, sed ab álio debére occídi, qui vestígia séquitur Christi.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.


Te Deum
Te Deum laudámus: * te Dóminum confitémur.
Te ætérnum Patrem * omnis terra venerátur.
Tibi omnes Ángeli, * tibi Cæli, et univérsæ Potestátes:
Tibi Chérubim et Séraphim * incessábili voce proclámant:

(Fit reverentia) Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus * Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.

Pleni sunt cæli et terra * majestátis glóriæ tuæ.
Te gloriósus * Apostolórum chorus,
Te Prophetárum * laudábilis númerus,
Te Mártyrum candidátus * laudat exércitus.
Te per orbem terrárum * sancta confitétur Ecclésia,
Patrem * imménsæ majestátis;
Venerándum tuum verum * et únicum Fílium;
Sanctum quoque * Paráclitum Spíritum.
Tu Rex glóriæ, * Christe.
Tu Patris * sempitérnus es Fílius.

Fit reverentia
Tu, ad liberándum susceptúrus hóminem: * non horruísti Vírginis uterum.

Tu, devícto mortis acúleo, * aperuísti credéntibus regna cælórum.
Tu ad déxteram Dei sedes, * in glória Patris.
Judex créderis * esse ventúrus.

Sequens versus dicitur flexis genibus
Te ergo quǽsumus, tuis fámulis súbveni, * quos pretióso sánguine redemísti.

Ætérna fac cum Sanctis tuis * in glória munerári.
Salvum fac pópulum tuum, Dómine, * et bénedic hereditáti tuæ.
Et rege eos, * et extólle illos usque in ætérnum.
Per síngulos dies * benedícimus te.

Fit reverentia, secundum consuetudinem
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
Beware, lest thou take these words: He that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal as some do, for an approval of suicide. Some evil and perverse men, bloody and guilty murderers of themselves, do indeed throw themselves into the fire, drown themselves in water, and cast themselves down precipices, and so perish. This is not the teaching of Christ, Who, when the devil would have Him cast Himself down from an high place, answered: Get thee behind Me, Satan. It is written, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Matth. iv. 5-7. Who also said to Peter, signifying by what death he should glorify God: When thou wast young thou girdedst thyself and walkedst whither thou wouldest; but when thou shalt be old, another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. John xxi. 18. From which it is evident that he that would follow Christ's footsteps, must be slain, not by himself, but by another.
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.
