Ant. Christ's blessed Martyr Lawrence is crowned and triumphing in heaven. * O come, let us worship the Lord!
Ant. Christ's blessed Martyr Lawrence is crowned and triumphing in heaven. * O come, let us worship the Lord!
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. Christ's blessed Martyr Lawrence is crowned and triumphing in heaven. * O come, let us worship the Lord!
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 the Lord!
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. Christ's blessed Martyr Lawrence is crowned and triumphing in heaven. * O come, let us worship the Lord!
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 the Lord!
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.

85:14 Deus, iníqui insurrexérunt super me, et synagóga poténtium quæsiérunt ánimam meam: * et non proposuérunt te in conspéctu suo.

88:21 Invéni David, servum meum: * óleo sancto meo unxi eum.
88:22 Manus enim mea auxiliábitur ei: * et brácchium meum confortábit eum.
88:23 Nihil profíciet inimícus in eo, * et fílius iniquitátis non appónet nocére ei.
88:24 Et concídam a fácie ipsíus inimícos ejus: * et odiéntes eum in fugam convértam.
88:25 Et véritas mea, et misericórdia mea cum ipso: * et in nómine meo exaltábitur cornu ejus.
88:26 Et ponam in mari manum ejus: * et in flumínibus déxteram ejus.
88:27 Ipse invocábit me: Pater meus es tu: * Deus meus, et suscéptor salútis meæ.
88:28 Et ego primogénitum ponam illum * excélsum præ régibus terræ.
88:29 In ætérnum servábo illi misericórdiam meam: * et testaméntum meum fidéle ipsi.
88:30 Et ponam in sǽculum sǽculi semen ejus: * et thronum ejus sicut dies cæli.
88:31 Si autem derelíquerint fílii ejus legem meam: * et in judíciis meis non ambuláverint:
88:32 Si justítias meas profanáverint: * et mandáta mea non custodíerint:
88:33 Visitábo in virga iniquitátes eórum: * et in verbéribus peccáta eórum.
88:34 Misericórdiam autem meam non dispérgam ab eo: * neque nocébo in veritáte mea:
88:35 Neque profanábo testaméntum meum: * et quæ procédunt de lábiis meis, non fáciam írrita.
88:36 Semel jurávi in sancto meo: Si David méntiar: * semen ejus in ætérnum manébit.
88:37 Et thronus ejus sicut sol in conspéctu meo, * et sicut luna perfécta in ætérnum: et testis in cælo fidélis.
88:39 Tu vero repulísti et despexísti: * distulísti Christum tuum.
88:40 Evertísti testaméntum servi tui: * profanásti in terra Sanctuárium ejus.
88:41 Destruxísti omnes sepes ejus: * posuísti firmaméntum ejus formídinem.
88:42 Diripuérunt eum omnes transeúntes viam: * factus est oppróbrium vicínis suis.
88:43 Exaltásti déxteram depriméntium eum: * lætificásti omnes inimícos ejus.
88:44 Avertísti adjutórium gládii ejus: * et non es auxiliátus ei in bello.
88:45 Destruxísti eum ab emundatióne: * et sedem ejus in terram collisísti.
88:46 Minorásti dies témporis ejus: * perfudísti eum confusióne.
88:47 Úsquequo, Dómine, avértis in finem: * exardéscet sicut ignis ira tua?
88:48 Memoráre quæ mea substántia: * numquid enim vane constituísti omnes fílios hóminum?
88:49 Quis est homo, qui vivet, et non vidébit mortem: * éruet ánimam suam de manu ínferi?
88:50 Ubi sunt misericórdiæ tuæ antíquæ, Dómine, * sicut jurásti David in veritáte tua?
88:51 Memor esto, Dómine, oppróbrii servórum tuórum * quod contínui in sinu meo multárum géntium.
88:52 Quod exprobravérunt inimíci tui, Dómine, * quod exprobravérunt commutatiónem Christi tui.
88:53 Benedíctus Dóminus in ætérnum: * fiat, fiat.

Psalm 88(20-53) [4]
88:20 Then thou spokest in a vision to thy saints, and saidst: * I have laid help upon one that is mighty, and have exalted one chosen out of my people.
88:21 I have found David my servant: * with my holy oil I have anointed him.
88:22 For my hand shall help him: * and my arm shall strengthen him.
88:23 The enemy shall have no advantage over him: * nor the son of iniquity have power to hurt him.
88:24 And I will cut down his enemies before his face; * and them that hate him I will put to flight.
88:25 And my truth and my mercy shall be with him: * and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
88:26 And I will set his hand in the sea; * and his right hand in the rivers.
88:27 He shall cry out to me: Thou art my father: * my God, and the support of my salvation.
88:28 And I will make him my firstborn, * high above the kings of the earth.
88:29 I will keep my mercy for him for ever: * and my covenant faithful to him.
88:30 And I will make his seed to endure for evermore: * and his throne as the days of heaven.
88:31 And if his children forsake my law, * and walk not in my judgments:
88:32 If they profane my justices: * and keep not my commandments:
88:33 I will visit their iniquities with a rod: *and their sins with stripes.
88:34 But my mercy I will not take away from him: * nor will I suffer my truth to fail.
88:35 Neither will I profane my covenant: * and the words that proceed from my mouth I will not make void.
88:36 Once have I sworn by my holiness: I will not lie unto David: * his seed shall endure for ever.
88:37 And his throne as the sun before me: * and as the moon perfect for ever, and a faithful witness in heaven.
88:39 But thou hast rejected and despised: * thou hast been angry with thy anointed.
88:40 Thou hast overthrown the covenant of thy servant: * thou hast profaned his sanctuary on the earth.
88:41 Thou hast broken down all his hedges: * thou hast made his strength fear.
88:42 All that pass by the way have robbed him: * he is become a reproach to his neighbours.
88:43 Thou hast set up the right hand of them that oppress him: * thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
88:44 Thou hast turned away the help of his sword; * and hast not assisted him in battle.
88:45 Thou hast made his purification to cease: * and thou hast cast his throne down to the ground.
88:46 Thou hast shortened the days of his time: * thou hast covered him with confusion.
88:47 How long, O Lord, turnest thou away unto the end? * shall thy anger burn like fire?
88:48 Remember what my substance is: * for hast thou made all the children of men in vain?
88:49 Who is the man that shall live, and not see death: * that shall deliver his soul from the hand of hell?
88:50 Lord, where are thy ancient mercies, * according to what thou didst swear to David in thy truth?
88:51 Be mindful, O Lord, of the reproach of thy servants * which I have held in my bosom of many nations:
88:52 Wherewith thy enemies have reproached, O Lord; * wherewith they have reproached the change of thy anointed.
88:53 Blessed be the Lord for evermore. * So be it. So be it.
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. Blessed be * the Lord for evermore.

93:15 Until justice be turned into judgment: * and they that are near it are all the upright in heart.
93:16 Who shall rise up for me against the evildoers? * or who shall stand with me against the workers of iniquity?
93:17 Unless the Lord had been my helper, * my soul had almost dwelt in hell.
93:18 If I said: My foot is moved: * thy mercy, O Lord, assisted me.
93:19 According to the multitude of my sorrows in my heart, * thy comforts have given joy to my soul.
93:20 Doth the seat of iniquity stick to thee, * who framest labour in commandment?
93:21 They will hunt after the soul of the just, * and will condemn innocent blood.

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.

91:10 Quóniam ecce inimíci tui, Dómine, quóniam ecce inimíci tui períbunt: * et dispergéntur omnes, qui operántur iniquitátem.
91:11 Et exaltábitur sicut unicórnis cornu meum: * et senéctus mea in misericórdia úberi.

91:16 Quóniam rectus Dóminus, Deus noster: * et non est iníquitas in eo.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. It is a good * thing to give thanks unto the Lord.
Psalm 91 [11]
91:2 It is good to give praise to the Lord: * and to sing to thy name, O most High.
91:3 To shew forth thy mercy in the morning, * and thy truth in the night:
91:4 Upon an instrument of ten strings, upon the psaltery: * with a canticle upon the harp.
91:5 For thou hast given me, O Lord, a delight in thy doings: * and in the works of thy hands I shall rejoice.
91:6 O Lord, how great are thy works! * thy thoughts are exceeding deep.
91:7 The senseless man shall not know: * nor will the fool understand these things.
91:8 When the wicked shall spring up as grass: * and all the workers of iniquity shall appear:
91:9 That they may perish for ever and ever: * but thou, O Lord, art most high for evermore.
91:10 For behold thy enemies, O Lord, for behold thy enemies shall perish: * and all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
91:11 But my horn shall be exalted like that of the unicorn: * and my old age in plentiful mercy.
91:12 My eye also hath looked down upon my enemies: * and my ear shall hear of the downfall of the malignant that rise up against me.
91:13 The just shall flourish like the palm tree: * he shall grow up like the cedar of Libanus.
91:14 They that are planted in the house of the Lord * shall flourish in the courts of the house of our God.
91:15 They shall still increase in a fruitful old age: * and shall be well treated, that they may shew,
91:16 That the Lord our God is righteous, * and there is no iniquity in him.
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.

Lectio 4
Sermo sancti Leonis Papae.
In Natali S. Laurentii, post initium.
Dum furor Gentilium potestatum in electissima quaeque Christi membra saeviret, ac praecipue eos, qui ordinis erant sacerdotalis, impeteret, in Levitam Laurentium, qui non solum ministerio sacramentorum sed etiam dispensatione ecclesiasticae substantiae praeeminebat, impius persecutor efferbuit, duplicem sibi praedam de unius viri comprehensione promittens: quem si fecisset sacrae pecuniae traditorem, faceret etiam verae religionis exsortem. Armatur itaque gemina face homo pecuniae cupidus, et veritatis inimicus: avaritia, ut rapiat aurum: impietate, ut auferat Christum. Postulat sibi ab immaculato sacrarii praesule opes ecclesiasticas, quibus avidissimus inhiabat, inferri. Cui Levita castissimus, ubi eas repositas haberet, ostendens, numerosissimos sanctorum pauperum obtulit greges, in quorum victu atque vestitu inamissibiles condiderat facultates: quae tanto integrius erant salvae, quanto sanctius probabantur expensae.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Quo progrederis sine filio pater? quo sacerdos sancte, sine diacono properas?
* Tu numquam sine ministro sacrificium offerre consueveras.
V. Quid ergo in me displicuit paternitati tuae? Numquid degenerem me probasti? Experire utrum idoneum ministrum elegeris, cui commisisti Dominici sanguinis dispensationem.
R. Tu numquam sine ministro sacrificium offerre consueveras.

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 Birth-day.
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 an 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.

Lectio 5
Fremit ergo praedo frustratus, et in odium religionis, quae talem divitiarum usum instituisset, ardescens, direptionem thesauri potioris aggreditur, apud quem nullam denariorum substantiam reperisset: ut illud depositum, quo sacratius erat dives, auferret. Renuntiare Christo Laurentium jubet, et solidissimam illam levitici animi fortitudinem diris parat urgere suppliciis: quorum ubi prima nil obtinent, vehementiora succedunt. Laceros artus, et multa verberum sectione conscissos, subjecto praecipit igne torreri: ut per cratem ferream, quae jam de fervore continuo vim in se haberet urendi, conversorum alterna mutatione membrorum, fieret cruciatus vehementior, et poena productior.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Noli me derelinquere pater sancte, quia thesauros tuos jam expendi.
* Non ego te desero fili, neque derelinquo: sed majora tibi debentur pro fide Christi certamina.
V. Nos quasi senes levioris pugnae cursum recipimus, te autem quasi juvenem manet gloriosior de tyranno triumphus: post triduum me sequeris sacerdotem levita.
R. Non ego te desero fili, neque derelinquo: sed majora tibi debentur pro fide Christi certamina.
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.

Lectio 6
Nihil obtines, nihil proficis saeva crudelitas. Subtrahitur tormentis tuis materia mortalis, et Laurentio in caelos abeunte, tu deficis flammis tuis. Superari caritas Christi flamma non potuit: et segnior fuit ignis, qui foris ussit, quam qui intus accendit. Saevisti persecutor in Martyrem: saevisti, et auxisti palmam, dum aggeras poenam. Nam quid non ad victoris gloriam ingenium tuum reperit, quando in honorem transidrunt triumphi etiam instrumenta supplicii? Gaudeamus igitur dilectissimi gaudio spiritali, et de felicissimo inclyti viri fine gloriemur in Domino, qui est mirabilis in sanctis suis, in quibus nobis et praesidium constituit et exemplum: atque ita per universum mundum clarificavit gloriam suam, ut a solis ortu usque ad occasum, leviticorum luminum coruscante fulgore, quam clarificata est Jerosolyma Stephano, tam illustris fieret Roma Laurentio.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Beatus Laurentius clamavit, et dixit: Deum meum colo, illi soli servio:
* Et ideo non timeo tormenta tua.
V. Mea nox obscurum non habet, sed omnia in luce clarescunt.
R. Et ideo non timeo tormenta tua.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et ideo non timeo tormenta tua.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Spirit's fire Divine in our hearts enkindled shine. Amen.

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 ensample 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.
