Ave María, grátia plena; Dóminus tecum: benedícta tu in muliéribus, et benedíctus fructus ventris tui Jesus. Sancta María, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatóribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostræ. Amen.
Credo in Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, Creatórem cæli et terræ.
Et in Jesum Christum, Fílium ejus únicum, Dóminum nostrum: qui concéptus est de Spíritu Sancto, natus ex María Vírgine, passus sub Póntio Piláto, crucifíxus, mórtuus, et sepúltus: descéndit ad ínferos; tértia die resurréxit a mórtuis; ascéndit ad cælos; sedet ad déxteram Dei Patris omnipoténtis: inde ventúrus est judicáre vivos et mórtuos.
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.
V. O Lord, +︎ open thou my lips.
R. And my mouth shall declare thy praise.
V. O God, come to my assistance;
R. O Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Praise be to thee, O Lord, King of eternal glory.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Iste Conféssor Dómini, coléntes
Quem pie laudant pópuli per orbem,
Hac die lætus méruit beátas
Scándere sedes.

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,
Tótius 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
Erst on this feast-day merited to enter
Into his glory.

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.

13:6 Sua boca está cheia de maldição e de amargura: * os seus pés são velozes para derramar sangue.
13:7 Há tormento e desgraça nos seus caminhos e não conheceram o caminho da paz: * não há temor de Deus ante seus olhos.

17:13 Præ fulgóre in conspéctu ejus nubes transiérunt, * grando et carbónes ignis.
17:14 Et intónuit de cælo Dóminus, et Altíssimus dedit vocem suam: * grando et carbónes ignis.

Ant. I will love thee, * O Lord, who art my strength.
Psalm 17(2-16) [4]
17:2 Meu Deus é meu auxílio, * e n’Ele esperarei.
17:3 É o meu protector, a minha poderosa salvação * e o meu defensor.
17:4 Invocarei o Senhor, louvando-o, * e serei salvo dos meus inimigos.
17:5 Cercaram-me dores de morte, * e torrentes de iniquidade me conturbaram.
17:6 Dores de inferno me cercaram: * prenderam-me laços de morte.
17:7 Na minha tribulação invoquei o Senhor, * e clamei ao meu Deus.
17:8 Ele ouviu a minha voz do seu santo templo: * e o clamor, que elevei na sua presença, entrou nos seus ouvidos.
17:9 Comoveu-se a terra e tremeu: * os fundamentos dos montes estremeceram e abalaram-se, porque contra eles se indignou.
17:10 Subiu fumo por causa da sua ira e saiu fogo ardente do seu rosto: * carvões foram por Ele acesos.
17:11 Inclinou os céus e desceu: * e a névoa estava sob os seus pés.
17:12 Subiu sobre Querubins e voou: * voou sobre as asas dos ventos.
17:13 Fez das trevas o lugar do seu abrigo, à volta da sua tenda cercavam-n’O: * as águas tenebrosas das nuvens do ar.
17:14 Diante do esplendor da sua presença, das nuvens caíram * saraiva e carvões ardentes.
17:15 Dos céus trovejou o Senhor e o Altíssimo fez ouvir sua voz: * saraiva e carvões ardentes.
17:16 Enviou as suas setas e desbaratou-os: * multiplicou os relâmpagos e aterrou-os.
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.

17:19 Prævenérunt me in die afflictiónis meæ: * et factus est Dóminus protéctor meus.
17:20 Et edúxit me in latitúdinem: * salvum me fecit, quóniam vóluit me.
17:21 Et retríbuet mihi Dóminus secúndum justítiam meam: * et secúndum puritátem mánuum meárum retríbuet mihi:
17:22 Quia custodívi vias Dómini, * nec ímpie gessi a Deo meo.
17:23 Quóniam ómnia judícia ejus in conspéctu meo: * et justítias ejus non répuli a me.
17:24 Et ero immaculátus cum eo: * et observábo me ab iniquitáte mea.
17:25 Et retríbuet mihi Dóminus secúndum justítiam meam: * et secúndum puritátem mánuum meárum in conspéctu oculórum ejus.
17:26 Cum sancto sanctus eris, * et cum viro innocénte ínnocens eris:
17:27 Et cum elécto eléctus eris: * et cum pervérso pervertéris.
17:28 Quóniam tu pópulum húmilem salvum fácies: * et óculos superbórum humiliábis.
17:29 Quóniam tu illúminas lucérnam meam, Dómine: * Deus meus, illúmina ténebras meas.
17:30 Quóniam in te erípiar a tentatióne, * et in Deo meo transgrédiar murum.
17:31 Deus meus, impollúta via ejus: elóquia Dómini igne examináta: * protéctor est ómnium sperántium in se.
17:32 Quóniam quis Deus præter Dóminum? * aut quis Deus præter Deum nostrum?
17:33 Deus, qui præcínxit me virtúte: * et pósuit immaculátam viam meam.
17:34 Qui perfécit pedes meos tamquam cervórum, * et super excélsa státuens me.
17:35 Qui docet manus meas ad prǽlium: * et posuísti, ut arcum ǽreum, brácchia mea.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.

Ant. Retríbuet mihi Dóminus secúndum justítiam meam.
Ant. The Lord will reward me * according to my justice.
Psalm 17(17-35) [5]
17:17 Apareceram as fontes das águas, * e ficaram descobertos os fundamentos da terra:
17:18 Devido às vossas ameaças, ó Senhor, * e ao sopro impetuoso de vossa ira.
17:19 Estendeu do alto a sua mão e tomou-me: * e retirou-me de muitas águas.
17:20 Livrou-me dos meus fortíssimos inimigos e dos que me odiavam: * porque eram fortíssimos para mim.
17:21 Eles me impediram no dia do meu tormento: * e o Senhor fez-se meu protector.
17:22 Retirou-me e pôs-me ao largo: * salvou-me, porque lhe era querido.
17:23 O Senhor retribuir-me-á segundo a minha justiça: * e recompensar-me-á segundo a pureza das minhas mãos:
17:24 Pois guardei os caminhos do Senhor, * e não procedi impiamente contra o meu Deus.
17:25 Porque todos seus juízos estão ante mim: * e porque não repeli de mim as suas justiças.
17:26 Conservar-me-ei sem mácula diante d’Ele: * e guardar-me-ei da minha iniquidade.
17:27 O Senhor retribuir-me-á segundo a minha justiça: * e segundo a pureza das minhas mãos ante seus olhos.
17:28 Sereis santo com o santo, * e com o homem inocente sereis inocente:
17:29 Com o eleito, eleito sereis: * com o perverso sereis perverso.
17:30 Porque salvareis o povo humilde: * e humilhareis os olhos dos soberbos.
17:31 Visto que Vós, ó Senhor, iluminais a minha candeia: * esclarecei, meu Deus, as minhas trevas.
17:32 Porque por Vós sairei livre da tentação, * e com meu Deus passarei a muralha.
17:33 Sem mácula é o caminho do meu Deus, as palavras do Senhor são examinadas no fogo: * é o protector de todos os que esperam n’Ele.
17:34 Porque, quem é Deus senão o Senhor? * Ou que deus há para além do nosso Deus?
17:35 O Deus que me revestiu de força: * e fez com que o meu caminho fosse imaculado.

17:37 Dilatásti gressus meos subtus me: * et non sunt infirmáta vestígia mea:
17:38 Pérsequar inimícos meos et comprehéndam illos: * et non convértar, donec defíciant.
17:39 Confríngam illos, nec póterunt stare: * cadent subtus pedes meos.
17:40 Et præcinxísti me virtúte ad bellum: * et supplantásti insurgéntes in me subtus me.
17:41 Et inimícos meos dedísti mihi dorsum, * et odiéntes me disperdidísti.
17:42 Clamavérunt, nec erat qui salvos fáceret ad Dóminum: * nec exaudívit eos.
17:43 Et commínuam illos, ut púlverem ante fáciem venti: * ut lutum plateárum delébo eos.
17:44 Erípies me de contradictiónibus pópuli: * constítues me in caput géntium.
17:45 Pópulus quem non cognóvi servívit mihi: * in audítu auris obedívit mihi.
17:46 Fílii aliéni mentíti sunt mihi, * fílii aliéni inveteráti sunt, et claudicavérunt a sémitis suis.
17:47 Vivit Dóminus, et benedíctus Deus meus: * et exaltétur Deus salútis meæ.
17:48 Deus, qui das vindíctas mihi, et subdis pópulos sub me: * liberátor meus de inimícis meis iracúndis.
17:49 Et ab insurgéntibus in me exaltábis me: * a viro iníquo erípies me.
17:50 Proptérea confitébor tibi in natiónibus, Dómine: * et nómini tuo psalmum dicam.

17:36 Que fez os meus pés como os dos veados, * e me estabeleceu sobre lugares altos.
17:37 Que adestra as minhas mãos para a luta: * e fizestes dos meus braços como um arco de bronze.
17:38 Destes-me a vossa protecção para me salvar: * e a vossa direita me susteve:
17:39 Vossa disciplina corrigiu-me até ao fim: * e essa vossa mesma disciplina ensinar-me-á.
17:40 Abristes o caminho sob os meus passos: * e se me não enfraqueceram os pés:
17:41 Perseguirei os meus inimigos e apanhá-los-ei: * e não recuarei até que eles acabem.
17:42 Quebrar-lhes-ei as forças, não conseguirão manter-se em pé: * cairão debaixo dos meus pés.
17:43 Porque me guarnecestes de força para a guerra: * e suplantastes os insurgentes debaixo de mim.
17:44 Fizestes os meus inimigos voltarem-me as costas, * e aniquilastes os que me odiavam.
17:45 Gritaram e não havia quem os salvasse para o Senhor: * e Ele os não ouviu.
17:46 Os vencerei como o pó atirado ao vento: * os esmagarei como à lama das ruas.
17:47 Livrar-me-eis das contradições do povo: * estabelecer-me-eis chefe das gentes.
17:48 Um povo que não conhecia me serviu: * ao ouvir a minha voz, foi-me obediente.
17:49 Mentiram-me os filhos alheios, * os filhos alheios esvaneceram e claudicaram dos seus caminhos.
17:50 Viva o Senhor e seja bendito o meu Deus: * e seja exaltado o Deus da minha salvação!

Lectio 4
Cyrillus Hierosolymitanus a teneris annis divinarum scripturarum studio summopere deditus, adeo in earum scientia profecit, ut orthodoxæ fidei strenuus assertor evaserit. Monasticis institutis imbutus, perpetuæ continentiæ, omnique severiori vivendi rationi se addictum voluit. Postquam a sancto Maximo Hierosolymæ episcopo presbyter ordinatus fuit, munus verbi divini fidelibus prædicandi et catechumenos edocendi summa cum laude implevit, atque illas vere mirandas conscripsit catecheses, quibus totam ecclesiasticam doctrinam dilucide et copiose complexus, singula religionis dogmata contra fidei hostes solide propugnavit. Ita vero in his enucleate et distincte disseruit, ut non solum jam exortas hæreses, sed futuras étiam quasi præsagiens everterit, quemadmodum præstitit asserendo Corporis et Sanguinis Christi realem præsentiam in mirabili Eucharistiæ sacramento. Vita autem functo sancto Maximo, a provinciæ episcopis in illius locum suffectus est.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Invéni David servum meum, óleo sancto meo unxi eum:
* Manus enim mea auxiliábitur ei.
V. Nihil profíciet inimícus in eo, et fílius iniquitátis non nocébit ei.
R. Manus enim mea auxiliábitur ei.

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

Reading 4
Cyril of Jerusalem was given to the study of the Holy Scriptures from a child, and so learnt therein that he became an eminent champion of the orthodox faith. He embraced the monastic institute in perpetual continency, and all hardship of living. He was ordained Priest by holy Maximus, Patriarch of Jerusalem, and undertook with eminent success the task of preaching the word of God to the faithful and of instructing the catechumens. Thus did he compose those truly wonderful Catecheses, wherein he has embraced, clearly and fully, all the teaching of the Church, and stoutly defended every one of her doctrines against the enemies of the faith. His treatment of these subjects was such that he has overthrown therein, not only the heresies which had then come into being, but, by a kind of foreknowledge, even those which were to arise in later times. Of this an instance is his contention for the real Presence of the Body and Blood of Christ in the wondrous Sacrament of the Eucharist. After the death of holy Maximus, the bishops of the province chose Cyril in his place.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I have found David My servant, with My holy oil have I anointed him
* For My hand shall help him.
V. The enemy shall prevail nothing against him, nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
R. For My hand shall help him.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Lectio 5
In episcopatu injurias multas et calamitates, non secus ac beatus Athanasius, cui cœvus erat, ab Arianorum factionibus fidei causa perpessus fuit. Hi enim ægre ferentes Cyrillum vehementer hæresibus obsistere, ipsum calumniis aggrediuntur, et in conciliabulo depositum e sua sede deturbant. Quorum furori ut se subtraheret, Tarsum Ciliciæ aufugit, et quoad vixit Constantius, exsilii rigorem pertulit. Post illius mortem, Juliano Apostata ad imperium evecto, Hierosolymam redire potuit, ubi ardenti zelo gregi suo ab erroribus et a vitiis revocando operam navavit. Sed iterum, Valente imperatore, exsulare coactus est, donec, reddita Ecclesiæ pace per Theodosium Magnum, et Arianorum crudelitate audaciaque repressa, ab eodem imperatore tamquam fortissimus Christi athleta honoribus susceptus suæ sedi restitutus fuit. Quam strenue et sancte sublimis officii sui munia impleverit, luculenter apparet ex florenti tunc temporis Hierosolymitanæ ecclesiæ statu, quem sanctus Basilius loca sancta veneraturus, ibi aliquamdiu commoratus, describit
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Pósui adjutórium super poténtem, et exaltávi eléctum de plebe mea:
* Manus enim mea auxiliábitur ei.
V. Invéni David servum meum, óleo sancto meo unxi eum.
R. Manus enim mea auxiliábitur ei.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

Reading 5
In his office of Bishop he had for the faith's sake, like his blessed contemporary Athanasius, to endure many wrongs and sufferings at the hands of the Arian sect. The Arians could not bear that Cyril should steadfastly withstand their heresy. They assailed him with calumnies, deposed him in a pretended council, and drove him out of his see. To escape their rage he fled to Tarsus in Cilicia, and as long as Constantius lived he bore the hardships of exile. After his death and the accession to the imperial throne of the Apostate Julian, Cyril was able to return to Jerusalem, where he set himself with burning zeal to deliver his flock from false doctrine and from sin. He was driven into exile a second time under the Emperor Valens. But when peace was restored to the Church by Theodosius the Great, and the cruelty and insolence of the Arians were restrained, Cyril was received with honour by the Emperor as one of Christ's most eminent soldiers, and was restored to his see. With what earnestness and holiness he fulfilled the duties of his exalted office was made manifest by the flourishing state of the church of Jerusalem at that time, of which a picture hath been left for us by holy Basil, who dwelt there for a while when he went to worship at the holy places.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I have laid help upon one that is mighty, and have exalted one chosen out of My people
* For My hand shall help him.
V. I have found David My servant, with My holy oil have I anointed him.
R. For My hand shall help him.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ignem sui amóris accéndat Deus in córdibus nostris. Amen.

Lectio 6
Venerandi hujus præsulis sanctitatem cælestibus signis a Deo fuísse illustratam memoriæ traditum accepimus. Inter hæc recensetur præclara crucis, solis radiis fulgentioris, apparitio, quæ episcopatus ejus initia decoravit. Hujusmodi prodigii ethnici et Christiani testes oculares fuerunt cum ipso Cyrillo qui gratiis primum in Ecclesia Deo redditis, illud per epistolam Constantio imperatori narravit. Nec minus admiratione dignum, quod Judæis templum a Tito eversum restaurare ex impio imperatoris Juliani jussu conantibus, evenit. Vehementi enim terræmotu oborto, et ingentibus flammarum globis e terra erumpentibus, omnia opera ignis consumpsit, ita ut Judæi et Julianus deterriti, ab incepto destiterint; prout scilicet indubitanter futurum Cyrillus prædixerat. Qui demum paulo ante obitum Concilio œcumenico Constantinopolitano interfuit, in quo Macedonii hæresis, et iterum Ariana condemnata est. Ac Jerúsalem inde reversus, fere septuagenarius, trigesimo quinto sui episcopatus anno sancto fine quievit. Ejus Officium ac Missam Leo decimus tertius Pontifex Maximus ab universa Ecclesia celebrari mandavit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Iste est, qui ante Deum magnas virtútes operátus est, et omnis terra doctrína ejus repléta est:
* Ipse intercédat pro peccátis ómnium populórum.
V. Iste est, qui contémpsit vitam mundi, et pervénit ad cæléstia regna.
R. Ipse intercédat pro peccátis ómnium populórum.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.

Benediction. May the Spirit's fire Divine in our hearts enkindled shine. Amen.

Reading 6
Tradition hath handed down that God Himself crowned with signs from heaven the holiness of this venerable Patriarch. Among these signs is numbered an apparition of a cross, more resplendent than the beams of the sun, which appeared at the beginning of his Patriarchate. Not only Cyril himself, but heathens and Christians alike were eye-witnesses of this marvel, and Cyril first gave thanks to God therefore in the church, and then sent news thereof by letter to the Emperor Constantius. A thing no less wonderful came to pass when the Jews were commanded by the profane Emperor Julian to attempt the restoration of the temple which had been destroyed by Titus. A great earthquake arose, and great masses of fire broke forth from the earth and consumed all the works, so that the Jews and Julian were dismayed and stayed their hand, all the which it can be proved that Cyril had foretold. A little while before his death he was present at the second Council of Constantinople; herein was condemned the heresy of Macedonius, and once more the Arian heresy. After his return to Jerusalem he died a holy death in the 69th year of his age and the 35 th of his episcopate. The Supreme Pontiff Leo XIII. commanded that his office and Mass should be celebrated throughout the universal Church.
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 the whole earth is full of his teaching
* May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them
V. This is he which loved not his life in this world, and hath attained unto the kingdom of heaven.
R. May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them

20:10 Exterminareis o seu fruto da terra: * e a sua descendência de entre os filhos dos homens.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum.
Matt 10:23-28
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discipulis suis: Cum persequentur vos in civitate ista, fugite in aliam. Et réliqua.

Homilia sancti Athanasii Epíscopi.
In Apologia de fuga sua, ante med.
In lege præceptum erat ut constituerentur civitates refugiorum, ut qui quomodocumque ad necem quærerentur, servari possent. In consummatione porro sæculorum cum advenisset illud ipsum Verbum Patris, quod Moysi antea locutum fuerat, rursus hoc præceptum dedit: Cum vos, inquiens, persecuti fuerint in civitate ista, fugite in aliam. Pauloque post subjicit: Cum videritis illam abominationem desolationis quæ dicta est per Danielem prophetam, consistentem in loco sancto (qui legit, intelligat), tunc qui in Judǽa sunt fugiant ad montes et qui in tecto est, ne descendat tollere aliquid de domo sua: et qui in agro est, non revertatur tollere tunicam suam.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Amávit eum Dóminus, et ornávit eum: stolam glóriæ índuit eum,
* Et ad portas paradísi coronávit eum.
V. Induit eum Dóminus lorícam fídei, et ornávit eum.
R. Et ad portas paradísi coronávit eum.

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

From the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 10:23-28
At that time, Jesus said to his disciples: And when they shall persecute you in this city, flee into another. And so on.

Homily by St. Athanasius, Pope of Alexandria.
Defence of his own flight.
It is written in the Law, Num. xxxv. 11, Ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for you, that in these cities they which were pursued to put them to death might enter and be safe. And in the latter days when He was come, even that very Word of the Father, Which had spoken aforetime unto Moses, He gave again the same commandment When they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another. And, a while afterward, He said: “When ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, stand in the Holy Place, whoso readeth, let him understand, then let them which be in Judaea flee unto the mountains; let him which is on the house-top not come down to take anything out of his house; neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.” Matth. xxiv. 15-18.
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.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Hæc cum scirent sancti, ejusmodi tenuerunt suæ conversationis institutum. Quæ enim nunc præcepit Dominus, eadem quoque ante suum in carne adventum locutus est in sanctis: et hoc institutum homines ad perfectionem ducit. Nam quod Deus jusserit, id omnino faciendum est. Ideoque et ipsum Verbum propter nos homo factum, non indignum putavit, cum quæreretur, quemadmodum et nos, abscondere se; et cum persecutionem pateretur, fugere, et insidias declinare: cum autem a se definitum tempus ipse adduxisset, in quo corporaliter pro omnibus pati volebat, ultro seipsum tradidit insidiantibus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. In médio Ecclésiæ apéruit os ejus,
* Et implévit eum Dóminus spíritu sapiéntiæ et intelléctus.
V. Jucunditátem et exsultatiónem thesaurizávit super eum.

R. Et implévit eum Dóminus spíritu sapiéntiæ et intelléctus.

Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
The Saints, therefore, knowing these words of the Lord, have obeyed them in their lives. What the Lord hath now commanded by His Own Mouth He commanded through His Saints before that He Himself was come in the flesh, and to obey this commandment worketh in a man perfection, since whatever God commandeth is a thing which it behoveth man to do. For this cause, that very Word of God Which was made flesh for our sake thought it meet when they sought Him, even as at this present time they are seeking us, to hide Himself, John viii. 59, and, when they persecuted Him, to fly and escape from their laying in wait for Him although when that time came which He had Himself decreed, and wherein He willed, as touching the Body, to suffer for us all, He willingly gave Himself up to His enemies.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. In the midst of the congregation did the Lord open his mouth.
* And filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding.
V. He made him rich with joy and gladness.
R. And filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Joánnem
Joannes 8:21-29
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus turbis Judæórum: Ego vado, et quærétis me, et in peccáto vestro moriémini. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Augustíni Epíscopi
Tract. 38 in Joann. post init.
Locútus est Dóminus Judǽis, dicens: Ego vado. Christo enim Dómino mors proféctio fuit illo, unde vénerat, et unde non discésserat. Ego, inquit, vado, et quærétis me, non desidério, sed ódio. Nam illum póstea quam abscéssit ab óculis hóminum, inquisiérunt et qui óderant, et qui amábant: illi persequéndo, isti habére cupiéndo. In Psalmis ait ipse Dóminus per Prophétam: Périit fuga a me, et non est qui requírat ánimam meam. Et íterum ait álio loco in Psalmo: Confundántur et revereántur requiréntes ánimam meam.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Te Deum laudámus: * te Dóminum confitémur.

Commemoration of the day
Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to John
John 8:21-29
In that time, Jesus said to the multitude of Jews: I go, and you shall seek me, and you shall die in your sin. And so on.

Homily on this passage by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
Tract 38 on John
The Lord spake unto the Jews, saying: I go My way for, to the Lord Christ, death was a departure to that place whence He had come, and whence He had never departed. I go My way, saith He, and ye shall seek Me not from love, but from hatred. Yea after He had withdrawn Himself from the sight of men, two classes sought Him, even they that loved, and they that hated Him; the one because they longed for His presence, the other because they were fain to hunt Him down. In the Psalms the Lord Himself saith by His Prophet: Refuge failed me, and no man cared for my soul. Ps. cxli. 5. And again He said in another Psalm: Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul. Ps. xxxiv.
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.
