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.

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.

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.

Deo Patri sit glória,
Et Fílio, qui a mórtuis
Surréxit, ac 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.

Hymns of glory, songs of praise,
Father, unto Thee we raise;
Risen Lord, all praise to Thee,
Ever with the Spirit be
Amen.

2:9 Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, * and shalt break them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

De Áctibus Apostolórum
Acts 20:17-24
17 A Miléto Paulus mittens Éphesum, vocávit majóres natu Ecclésiæ.
18 Qui cum veníssent ad eum, et simul essent, dixit eis: Vos scitis a prima die qua ingréssus sum in Ásiam, quáliter vobíscum per omne tempus fúerim,
19 Sérviens Dómino cum omni humilitáte, et lácrimis, et tentatiónibus, quae mihi accidérunt ex insídiis Judæórum:
20 Quómodo nihil subtráxerim utílium, quóminus annuntiárem vobis et docérem vos, públice et per domos,
21 Testíficans Judǽis atque Gentílibus in Deum pœniténtiam, et fidem in Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum.
22 Et nunc ecce alligátus ego spíritu, vado in Jerúsalem: quæ in ea ventúra sint mihi, ignórans:
23 Nisi quod Spíritus Sanctus per omnes civitátes mihi protestátur, dicens: Quóniam víncula et tribulatiónes Jerosólymis me manent.
24 Sed nihil horum véreor: nec fácio ánimam meam pretiosiórem quam me, dúmmodo consúmmem cursum meum, et ministérium verbi quod accépi a Dómino Jesu, testificári Evangélium grátiæ Dei.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

Lesson from the Acts of Apostles
Acts 20:17-24
17 And sending from Miletus to Ephesus, he called the ancients of the church.
18 And when they were come to him, and were together, he said to them: You know from the first day that I came into Asia, in what manner I have been with you, for all the time,
19 Serving the Lord with all humility, and with tears, and temptations which befell me by the conspiracies of the Jews;
20 How I have kept back nothing that was profitable to you, but have preached it to you, and taught you publicly, and from house to house,
21 Testifying both to Jews and Gentiles penance towards God, and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
22 And now, behold, being bound in the spirit, I go to Jerusalem: not knowing the things which shall befall me there:
23 Save that the Holy Ghost in every city witnesseth to me, saying: That bands and afflictions wait for me at Jerusalem.
24 But I fear none of these things, neither do I count my life more precious than myself, so that I may consummate my course and the ministry of the word which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, alleluia.
* He shall delight exceedingly in his commandments, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
V. Glory and wealth shall be in his house: and his justice remaineth for ever and ever.
R. He shall delight exceedingly in his commandments, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

29 Ego scio quóniam intrábunt post discessiónem meam lupi rapáces in vos, non parcéntes gregi.
30 Et ex vobis ipsis exsúrgent viri loquéntes pervérsa, ut abdúcant discípulos post se.

25 And now behold, I know that all you, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.
26 Wherefore I take you to witness this day, that I am clear from the blood of all men;
27 For I have not spared to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
28 Take heed to yourselves, and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
29 I know that, after my departure, ravening wolves will enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30 And of your own selves shall arise men speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
31 Therefore watch, keeping in memory, that for three years I ceased not, with tears to admonish every one of you night and day.

Acts 20:32-38
32 And now I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, who is able to build up, and to give an inheritance among all the sanctified.
33 I have not coveted any man's silver, gold, or apparel, as
34 You yourselves know: for such things as were needful for me and them that are with me, these hands have furnished.
35 I have showed you all things, how that so labouring you ought to support the weak, and to remember the word of the Lord Jesus, how he said: It is a more blessed thing to give, rather than to receive.
36 And when he had said these things, kneeling down, he prayed with them all.
37 And there was much weeping among them all; and falling on the neck of Paul, they kissed him,
38 Being grieved most of all for the word which he had said, that they should see his face no more. And they brought him on his way to the ship.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Precious in the sight of the Lord, alleluia.

5:6 Neither shall the wicked dwell near thee: * nor shall the unjust abide before thy eyes.
5:7 Thou hatest all the workers of iniquity: * thou wilt destroy all that speak a lie.
5:7 The bloody and the deceitful man the Lord will abhor. * But as for me in the multitude of thy mercy,

5:9 Conduct me, O Lord, in thy justice: * because of my enemies, direct my way in thy sight.
5:10 For there is no truth in their mouth: * their heart is vain.
5:11 Their throat is an open sepulchre: they dealt deceitfully with their tongues: * judge them, O God.
5:11 Let them fall from their devices: according to the multitude of their wickednesses cast them out: * for they have provoked thee, O Lord.
5:12 But let all them be glad that hope in thee: * they shall rejoice for ever, and thou shalt dwell in them.
5:12 And all they that love thy name shall glory in thee: * For thou wilt bless the just.

Justínus, Prisci fílius, ex Græco genere Flaviæ Neápolis in Syria Palæstina natus, adolescéntiam in litterárum ómnium stúdiis transegit. Vir factus adeo philosophíæ amóre correptus est, ut ad veritátem assequéndam, quotquot aderant, philosophórum sectis nomen déderit, eorúmque præcépta scrutátus sit. Cum in his fallacem tantum sapiéntiam errorémque reperísset, superna illustratióne per senem quemdam ignotum aspectuque venerábilem edoctus, veræ christianæ fídei philosophíam amplexus est. Hinc sacræ Scripturæ libros diu noctuque præ mánibus habens, ita ex eórum meditatióne divinus ignis in ánima ejus exársit, ut ea qua pollébat eruditiónis vi, eminentem Jesu Christi sciéntiam adeptus, plurima conscripserit volúmina ad christiánam fidem exponéndam magisque propagandam.

Reading 4
Justin, the son of Priscus, was a Greek by race, but was born at Nablus in Palestine. He passed his youth in the study of letters. When he became a man he was so taken with the love of philosophy and the desire of truth that he became a student in the schools of all the philosophers and examined the teaching of them all. In them he found only deceitful wisdom and error. The light of heaven was given him, through an old man of worshipful aspect whom he knew not, and he embraced the philosophy of the true Christian faith. Henceforth he had the books of the Holy Scriptures in his hands by day and by night, and by meditating thereon the fire of God was so kindled in his soul that, himself possessing the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus our Lord, he wrote many books, with all the learning which he possessed, to set forth the Christian faith and to spread it abroad.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Reading 5
Amongthe most famous of the works of Justin are his two Apologies or Defences of the Christian faith. These he brought before the Senate when the Emperors Antoninus Pius, and his sons, as also Marcus Antoninus Verus and Lucius Aurelius Commodus, were savagely persecuting the followers of Christ, and by their means, and his vigorous disputations in favour of the same faith, he obtained a public edict from the government to stay the slaughter of the Christians. But Justin himself did not escape he had rebuked the life and infamous manners of the Cynic Crescens, and was accused and arrested through that person's plottings. He was brought before Rusticus, the President of Rome, who asked him what were the doctrines of the Christians, whereto he answered, in the presence of many witnesses, with this good confession: The right doctrine which we Christian men do keep with godliness is this, that we should believe that there is one God, Who is the Maker and Creator of all things, both those things which are seen and those things which bodily eyes do not see, and that we should confess the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Who was foretold of old time by the prophets, and Who will come to be the Judge of all mankind.

Quóniam Justinus in prima sua apología exposúerat quómodo Christiáni convenírent ad Sacra celebranda, et quænam fúerint sacri hujus convéntus mysteria, ad repelléndas ethnicórum calumnias; exquisívit ab eo præses, in quonam loco conveníret ipse et ceteri hujus Urbis Christifidéles. Justinus autem réticens convéntuum loca, ne sancta et fratres próderet cánibus, domicílium tantum suum indicávit, ubi manére et discípulos excólere solébat penes célebrem títulum Pastoris in ædibus Pudéntis. Demum præses optiónem ei dedit vel ut diis sacrificaret, vel per totum corpus flagellis cædi perferret. Cum invictus fídei vindex assereret se in votis semper habuísse cruciátus pérpeti propter Dóminum Jesum Christum, a quo magnam in cælis mercédem cónsequi expectabat, præses in eum capitálem senténtiam pronuntiávit. Itaque mirábilis philósophus Deum collaudans, post vérbera, fuso pro Christo sánguine, glorióso martyrio coronátus est. Quidam vero fidéles clam illíus sustulérunt corpus, et in loco idoneo condidérunt. Leo décimus tertius Póntifex maximus ejúsdem Offícium et Missam ab univérsa Ecclésia celebrári præcepit.

Reading 6
In order to rebut the slanders of the heathen, Justin had in his first Apology given an open account of the gathering of the Christians for divine worship, and what were the holy Mysteries celebrated in these assemblies. The President therefore asked him what was the place where he and Christ's other faithful ones in the city were accustomed to meet. Justin, lest he should betray that which was holy unto God and his brethren, told only where was his own lodging, where he was used to abide and to teach his disciples, hard by the famous Church of the Shepherd, in the house of Pudens. The President then gave him the choice whether to sacrifice to the gods or to be hided with scourges over his whole body. The unconquered champion of the faith answered that he had always desired to suffer in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, from Whom he looked to receive a mighty reward in heaven. The President thereupon sentenced him to death, and then this excellent philosopher, giving praise to God, was first beaten and afterwards shed his blood for Christ's sake, and so received the crown of a glorious martyrdom. Some of the faithful secretly stole away his body, and buried it in a fitting place. The Supreme Pontiff Leo XIII. commanded that his Office and Mass should be used throughout the whole Church.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.

And so on.

The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? Fear them not, therefore: for] there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. It is as though He would say: It is comfort enough for you, if I, your Master and Lord, am a partaker in your reproach. But if it grieve you unto this present to hear these things, bethink you likewise that it is but a little while, and ye shall be free from that reproach. For what is it that grieveth you? is it that they call you tricksters and deceivers? Wait but a little while and all men shall call you the preservers and benefactors of the world. In a little while all the things which are dark now shall be made clear, and the falsehood of them that reproach you and your own goodness shall be shown in the light. For when that which cometh to pass shall itself show that ye are preservers and benefactors, and filled with all goodness, men will regard not the words of your gainsayers but the truth. They that now speak evil of you will be found out in the slanderers, liars, and calumniators, and ye shall be seen to be brighter than the sun; time shall make you known and shall preach you with a voice louder than the voice of a trumpet, and shall bring forward all men as the witnesses of your goodness. Let not, therefore, those things which are now spoken cast you down, but rather let the hope of the good things which are to come lift you up. For the things which regard you cannot be hidden.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I am the vine: you the branches.
* He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit, alleluia, alleluia.
V. As the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you.
R. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit, alleluia, alleluia.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Deínde, postquam illos omni angore, timóre et sollicitúdine liberávit, et probris ómnibus superióres réddidit, demum illos opportune de libertáte prædicándi allóquitur; nam dicit: Quod dico vobis in ténebris, dícite in lúmine; et quod in aure audítis, prædicate super tecta. Quamquam non erant ténebræ cum hæc diceret, neque ad aurem loquebátur: sed hæc hyperbólice dicta sunt. Quia enim solos alloquebátur, et in parvo Palæstinæ angulo, ídeo dicit, In ténebris et In aure; hunc loquéndi modum cómparans cum loquéndi fiducia, qua illos póstea instructurus erat. Ne in una, duabus tribusque civitátibus, sed per totum orbem prædicate, terram máreque peragrántes, habitátam, non habitátam; ac tyrannis, pópulus, philosophis, rhetóribus cum magna fiducia ómnia dícite. Ideo dixit super tecta et in lúmine; sine ullo subterfugio, et cum omni libertáte.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Cándidi facti sunt Nazarǽi ejus, allelúja: splendórem Deo dedérunt, allelúja:
* Et sicut lac coaguláti sunt, allelúja, allelúja.
V. Candidióres nive, nitidióres lacte, rubicundióres ébore antíquo, sapphíro pulchrióres.
R. Et sicut lac coaguláti sunt, allelúja, allelúja.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et sicut lac coaguláti sunt, allelúja, allelúja.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
And when He had freed them from pain, fear, and care, and set them above the reproaches of men, He spake unto them in due season concerning the freedom of preaching, What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the house-tops. It was not darkness when He uttered these words, neither was He speaking into their ear. These words were a figure He was speaking to them alone and in a little corner of Palestine, and therefore He saith in darkness and in the ear, as comparing this manner of speech with that boldness of speaking wherewith He was afterwards to inspire them. Preach, He saith, not in one nor two nor three cities, but throughout the whole world go over the earth and the sea, the land that is dwelt in and the land that is not dwelt in speak all things with great boldness to kings and to peoples, to philosophers and to rhetoricians therefore without any subtlety, but with all freedom, He saith, What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the house-tops.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Her Nazarites are become pure, Alleluia: they reflect the glory of God, Alleluia.
* They are whiter than milk. Alleluia, Alleluia.
V. They are purer than snow, they are whiter than milk, they are more ruddy in body than coral, their polishing is of sapphire.
R. They are whiter than milk. Alleluia, Alleluia.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. They are whiter than milk. Alleluia, Alleluia.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Commemoratio de sanctis Mart. Tiburtio, Valeriano et Maximo
Valerianus Romanus nobili genere ortus, Alexandro Sevéro imperatóre, hortatu beátæ Cæcíliæ Vírginis, quam sibi pári nobilitate uxórem desponderat, una cum Tiburtio fratre a sancto Urbano Papa baptizátur. Quos ubi præfectus Urbis Almachius Christiános esse cognóvit, et patrimonio paupéribus distributo, Christianórum córpora sepelire; accersítos gráviter reprehéndit: atque ubi Christum Deum constanter confiténtes, deos autem dæmoniórum inánia simulácra prædicántes videt, virgis cædi jubet. Sed cum verbéribus cogi non possent, ut Jovis simulacrum veneraréntur, immo fortes in fídei veritáte permanérent, ad quartum ab Urbe lápidem secúri feriúntur. Quorum virtútem admirátus Maximus præfecti cubicularius, qui eos ad supplícium perduxerat, Christiánum se esse proféssus est, cum multis præterea præfecti minístris: qui paulo post plumbátis contusi, omnes ex diaboli minístris, Christi Dómini Mártyres evasérunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Commemoratio of St. Tiburtius, Valerian, and Maximus
Valerian was a Roman, of a family as noble as that of the blessed maiden Cecily, to whom he was contracted in marriage, in the reign of the Emperor Alexander Severus. At her persuasion he and his brother Tiburtius were baptized by the holy Pope Urban. When it came to the knowledge of Almachius, the Prefect of the city, that they were become Christians, had given their substance to the poor, and were burying the bodies of the faithful, he sent for them and strongly rebuked them but as they constantly confessed that Christ is God, and that the gods of the heathen are but vain images of devils, he commanded them to be beaten with rods. But, forasmuch as no blows could force them to worship the image of Jupiter, but they seemed rather to wax strong in witnessing to the truth of the faith that was in them, they were beheaded at the fourth mile-stone from the city. One of the clerks of the Prefect, named Maximus, who had led them out to die, was so moved at the sight of their courage that he himself, with many other servants of the Prefect, owned to being a Christian they were sentenced to be scourged to death with whips loaded with lead, under the which torment, in a little while, all these, who had once been the devil's ministers, passed away as martyrs of Christ the Lord.
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.
