Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.

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.

Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.

For the 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}
Iste Conféssor Dómini, coléntes
Quem pie laudant pópuli per orbem,
Hac die lætus méruit suprémos
Laudis honóres.

Qui pius, prudens, húmilis, pudícus,
Sóbriam duxit sine labe vitam,
Donec humános animávit auræ
Spíritus artus.

Cujus ob præstans méritum, frequénter,
Ægra quæ passim jacuére membra,
Víribus morbi dómitis, salúti
Restituúntur.

Noster hinc illi chorus obsequéntem
Cóncinit laudem celebrésque palmas,
Ut piis ejus précibus juvémur
Omne per ævum.

Sit salus illi, decus atque virtus,
Qui, super cæli sólio corúscans,
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
On this feast day year by year receiveth
Merited honors.

Saintly and prudent, modest in behaviour,
Peaceful and sober, chaste was he, and lowly.
While that life’s vigour, coursing through his members,
Quickened his being.

Sick ones of old time, to his tomb resorting,
Sorely by ailments manifold afflicted,
Oft-times have welcomed health and strength returning,
At his petition.

Whence we in chorus gladly do him honour,
Chanting his praises with devout affection,
That in his merits we may have a portion,
Now and forever.

His be the glory, power and salvation,
Who over all things reigneth in the highest,
Earth’s mighty fabric ruling and directing,
Onely and Trinal.
Amen.

Lesson from the first book of Samuel
1 Sam 12:1-5
1 And Samuel said to all Israel: Behold I have hearkened to your voice in all that you said to me, and have made a king over you.
2 And now the king goeth before you: but I am old and greyheaded: and my sons are with you: having then conversed with you from my youth unto this day, behold here I am.
3 Speak of me before the Lord, and before his anointed, whether I have taken any man's ox, or ass: If I have wronged any man, if I have oppressed any man, if I have taken a bribe at any man's hand: and I will despise it this day, and will restore it to you.
4 And they said: Thou hast not wronged us, nor oppressed us, nor taken ought at any man's hand.
5 And he said to them: The Lord is witness against you, and his anointed is witness this day, that you have not found any thing in my hand. And they said: He is witness.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Well done, thou good and faithful servant, thou hast been faithful over a few things. I will make thee ruler over many things:
* Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.
V. Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents; behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
R. Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adjuváre dignétur. Amen.

6 And Samuel said to the people: It is the Lord, who made Moses and Aaron, and brought our fathers out of the land of Egypt.
7 Now therefore stand up, that I may plead in judgment against you before the Lord, concerning all the kindness of the Lord, which he hath shown to you, and to your fathers:
8 How Jacob went into Egypt, and your fathers cried to the Lord: and the Lord sent Moses and Aaron, and brought your fathers out of Egypt: and made them dwell in this place.
9 And they forgot the Lord their God, and he delivered them into the hands of Sisara, captain of the army of Hasor, and into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hand of the king of Moab, and they fought against them.

10 But afterwards they cried to the Lord, and said: We have sinned, because we have forsaken the Lord, and have served Baalim and Astaroth: but now deliver us from the hand of our enemies, and we will serve thee.
11 And the Lord sent Jerobaal, and Badan, and Jephte, and Samuel, and delivered you from the hand of your enemies round about, and you dwelt securely.
12 But seeing that Naas king of the children of Ammon was come against you, you said to me: Nay, but a king shall reign over us: whereas the Lord your God was your king.
13 Now therefore your king is here, whom you have chosen and desired: Behold the Lord hath given you a king.

36:9 Quóniam qui malignántur, exterminabúntur: * sustinéntes autem Dóminum, ipsi hereditábunt terram.
36:10 Et adhuc pusíllum, et non erit peccátor: * et quǽres locum ejus et non invénies.
36:11 Mansuéti autem hereditábunt terram: * et delectabúntur in multitúdine pacis.
36:12 Observábit peccátor justum: * et stridébit super eum déntibus suis.
36:13 Dóminus autem irridébit eum: * quóniam próspicit quod véniet dies ejus.
36:14 Gládium evaginavérunt peccatóres: * intendérunt arcum suum,
36:14 Ut deíciant páuperem et ínopem: * ut trucídent rectos corde.
36:15 Gládius eórum intret in corda ipsórum: * et arcus eórum confringátur.

R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Noli æmulári in eo qui prosperátur et facit iniquitátem.
Nocturn II.
Ant. Envy not * the man who prospereth in his way; the man who doth unjust things.
Psalm 36(1-15) [4]
36:1 Não imites os malignos: * nem invejes os que obram a iniquidade.
36:2 Porque eles velozmente secarão como feno: * e como as verdes ervas logo murcharão.
36:3 No Senhor espera e faz o bem: * e habitarás na terra e as suas riquezas sustentar-te-ão.
36:4 Põe as tuas delícias no Senhor: * e Ele dar-te-á as petições de teu coração.
36:5 Expõe o teu caminho ao Senhor e n’Ele espera: * e Ele procederá.
36:6 Fará brilhar como luz a tua justiça e o teu juízo como o meio-dia: * sê obediente ao Senhor e roga-Lhe.
36:7 Não invejes o que tem prosperidade no seu caminho: * o homem que comete injustiças.
36:8 Guarda-te da ira e deixa a fúria: * não queiras ser rival em vileza.
36:9 Porque os que cometem maldades serão exterminados: * mas os que esperam no Senhor herdarão a terra.
36:10 Ainda um pouco e não mais existirá o pecador: * e procurarás o seu lugar e o não acharás.
36:11 Porém, os mansos a terra herdarão: * e deleitar-se-ão na abundância da paz.
36:12 O pecador observará o justo: * e rangerá com os dentes contra ele.
36:13 O Senhor, porém, zombará dele: * porque vê que seu dia há-de chegar.
36:14 Os pecadores desembainharam a espada: * estenderam o seu arco,
36:15 Para arruinarem o pobre e o indigente: * para assassinarem os rectos de coração.
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. Envy not the man who prospereth in his way; the man who doth unjust things.

Psalmus 36(16-29) [5]
36:16 Mélius est módicum justo, * super divítias peccatórum multas.
36:17 Quóniam brácchia peccatórum conteréntur: * confírmat autem justos Dóminus.
36:18 Novit Dóminus dies immaculatórum: * et heréditas eórum in ætérnum erit.
36:19 Non confundéntur in témpore malo, et in diébus famis saturabúntur: * quia peccatóres períbunt.
36:20 Inimíci vero Dómini mox ut honorificáti fúerint et exaltáti: * deficiéntes, quemádmodum fumus defícient.
36:21 Mutuábitur peccátor, et non solvet: * justus autem miserétur et tríbuet.
36:22 Quia benedicéntes ei hereditábunt terram: * maledicéntes autem ei disperíbunt.
36:23 Apud Dóminum gressus hóminis dirigéntur: * et viam ejus volet.
36:24 Cum cecíderit non collidétur: * quia Dóminus suppónit manum suam.
36:25 Júnior fui, étenim sénui: * et non vidi justum derelíctum, nec semen ejus quǽrens panem.
36:26 Tota die miserétur et cómmodat: * et semen illíus in benedictióne erit.
36:27 Declína a malo, et fac bonum: * et inhábita in sǽculum sǽculi.
36:28 Quia Dóminus amat judícium, et non derelínquet sanctos suos: * in ætérnum conservabúntur.
36:28 Injústi puniéntur: * et semen impiórum períbit.
36:29 Justi autem hereditábunt terram: * et inhabitábunt in sǽculum sǽculi super eam.

Ant. The arms of the wicked * shall be broken in pieces; but the Lord strengtheneth the just.
Psalm 36(16-29) [5]
36:16 Sua espada trespasse o seu próprio coração: * e seja quebrado o seu arco.
36:17 Mais vale o pouco do justo, * que as muitas riquezas dos pecadores.
36:18 Porque os braços dos pecadores serão quebrados: * mas o Senhor fortalece os justos.
36:19 O Senhor conhece os dias dos que são imaculados: * e eterna será a herança deles.
36:20 Não serão confundidos no tempo mau e nos dias de fome estarão saciados: * pois os pecadores perecerão.
36:21 Os inimigos do Senhor, tanto que tiverem sido honrados e exaltados: * cairão e se desvanecerão como o fumo.
36:22 O pecador pedirá emprestado e não pagará: * o justo, porém, doa e é misericordioso.
36:23 Pois os que bendizem a Deus herdarão a terra: * mas os que O maldizem perecerão.
36:24 Os passos do homem serão dirigidos pelo Senhor: * e o seu caminho será aprovado por ele.
36:25 Quando cair se não ferirá: * pois o Senhor lhe põe a mão por baixo.
36:26 Jovem fui e já sou velho: * e nunca vi o justo desamparado, nem sua descendência mendigando pão.
36:27 Passa o dia sempre misericordioso e dando emprestado: * e a sua descendência será abençoada.
36:28 Desvia-te do mal e faz o bem: * e terás uma eterna morada.
36:29 Pois o Senhor ama a justiça e não desampara os seus santos: * eles serão conservados eternamente.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Psalmus 36(30-40) [6]
36:30 Os justi meditábitur sapiéntiam, * et lingua ejus loquétur judícium.
36:31 Lex Dei ejus in corde ipsíus, * et non supplantabúntur gressus ejus.
36:32 Consíderat peccátor justum: * et quǽrit mortificáre eum.
36:33 Dóminus autem non derelínquet eum in mánibus ejus: * nec damnábit eum, cum judicábitur illi.
36:34 Exspécta Dóminum, et custódi viam ejus: et exaltábit te ut hereditáte cápias terram: * cum períerint peccatóres vidébis.
36:35 Vidi ímpium superexaltátum, * et elevátum sicut cedros Líbani.
36:36 Et transívi, et ecce non erat: * et quæsívi eum, et non est invéntus locus ejus.
36:37 Custódi innocéntiam, et vide æquitátem: * quóniam sunt relíquiæ hómini pacífico.
36:38 Injústi autem disperíbunt simul: * relíquiæ impiórum interíbunt.
36:39 Salus autem justórum a Dómino: * et protéctor eórum in témpore tribulatiónis.
36:40 Et adjuvábit eos Dóminus et liberábit eos: * et éruet eos a peccatóribus, et salvábit eos: quia speravérunt in eo.

Ant. Keep innocence * and behold justice.
Psalm 36(30-40) [6]
36:30 Os injustos serão punidos: * e perecerá a descendência dos ímpios.
36:31 Os justos, porém, a terra herdarão: * e habitarão sobre ela por todos os séculos.
36:32 A boca do justo meditará sabedoria: * e a sua língua falará prudência.
36:33 A lei do seu Deus está no seu coração: * e seus passos não serão suplantados.
36:34 O pecador observa o justo: * e procura dar-lhe a morte.
36:35 O Senhor, contudo, o não abandonará nas suas mãos: * nem o condenará quando for julgado.
36:36 Espera no Senhor, guarda o seu caminho e Ele exaltar-te-á para que a terra possuas em herança: * o verás quando perecerem os pecadores.
36:37 Vi o ímpio bastante exaltado, * e elevado como os cedros do Líbano.
36:38 Passei e eis que já não existia: * e procurei-o e não encontrei o seu lugar.
36:39 Guarda a inocência e atende à equidade: * porque ficarão restos para o homem pacífico.
36:40 Os injustos, porém, perecerão igualmente: * o que restar dos ímpios será destruído.

Joánnem Sahaguni in Hispania nobili genere natum, parentes cum diu prole caruissent, piis operibus, et orationibus a Deo impetrarunt. Ab ineunte ætate egregium futuræ sanctitatis specimen dedit: nam e loco superiori ad ceteros pueros crebro verba faciebat, quibus eos ad virtutem, et Dei cultum hortabatur, eorumque dissidia componebat. In patria monachis sancti Facundi ordinis sancti Benedicti primis litterarum rudimentis imbuendus traditur. Dum iis operam daret, curavit pater, ut parochus ecclesiam administraret: quod munus juvenis nullis rationibus adduci potuit, ut retineret. Inter familiares episcopi Burgensis adscriptus, ob spectatam ipsius probitatem intimus ei fuit, ab eoque presbyter, et canonicus factus multis beneficiis auctus est. Sed relicta aula episcopi ut Deo quietius serviret, omnibus ecclesiæ proventibus abdicatis se cuidam sacello addixit, ubi Sacrum quotidie faciebat, ac de rebus divinis magna cum auditorum ædificatione frequenter concionabatur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

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

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

John Gonzalez was born, the offspring of a noble race, at San Fagondez in Spain, on Midsummer Day in the year of grace 1430. His father and mother after long childlessness, obtained him from God by prayers and good works. From his earliest years he gave clear signs of his after holiness of life. He was used to climb up upon an high place to preach to the other little boys, and to exhort them to be good and to worship God, and he made it his work to reconcile their quarrels. While he was still at home he was given in charge to the monks of the Order of Saint Benedict, at the village of San Fagondez, to teach him his first lessons. While he was thus busied, his father obtained for him the benefice of the Parish, but no persuasions could induce him to keep this preferment. He became one of the household of the Bishop of Burgos, and that Prelate, seeing his uprightness, took him into his counsels, ordained him Priest, and made him a Canon, heaping upon him many kindnesses. However, that he might serve God the more quietly, he left the Bishop's Palace, resigned all his Church income, and betook him to a certain Chapel wherein he celebrated the Holy Liturgy every day, and oftentimes preached concerning the things of God, with great profit to all that heard him.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord made him honourable, and defended him from his enemies, and kept him safe from those that lay in wait for him;
* And gave him perpetual glory.
V. He went down with him into the pit, and left him not in bonds.
R. And gave him perpetual glory.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Christus perpétuæ det nobis gáudia vitæ. Amen.

Postea studiorum causa Salmanticam profectus, in celebre collegium divi Bartholomæi cooptatus, sacerdotis munus ita exercuit, ut simul optatis studiis incumberet, et in sacris étiam concionibus assidue versaretur. Cum vero in gravissimum morbum incidisset, arctioris disciplinæ voto se obstrinxit, quod ut redderet, cum prius cuidam pauperi pene nudo ex duabus, quas tantum habebat vestes, meliorem dedisset, ad cœnobium sancti Augustíni severiori disciplina tum maxime florens se contulit: in quo admissus, obedientia, animi demissione, vigiliis ac oratione provectiores anteibat. Triclinii cura cum ipsi demandata esset, vini doliolum ipso attingente omnibus monachis per annum abunde suffecit. Exacto tirocinii anno, præfecti jussu munus concionandi suscepit. Salmanticæ id temporis adeo cruentis factionibus divina, humanaque omnia permixta erant, ut singulis propemodum horis cædes fierent, et omnium ordinum, ac præsertim nobilium sanguine non viæ solum, et fora, sed templa étiam redundarent.
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. Índuit eum Dóminus lorícam fídei, et ornávit eum.
R. Et ad portas paradísi coronávit eum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May Christ to all His people give, for ever in His sight to live. Amen.

He went later to Salamanca to study, and there being taken into the celebrated College of St. Bartholomew, he did his priestly office, so that he was at once constant to the studies he desired and busy with sermons. Here he had a severe illness, and vowed to take up a sterner way of living. In fulfillment of this vow, he gave to an half-naked beggar the better of the two garments which were all that he had, and then went to a Convent of the friars of St. Augustine, which was then in the richest bloom of rigid discipline. Being admitted therein, he surpassed the most advanced in obedience, lowliness, watchings, and prayer. At the time that he had charge of the table, one keg of wine abundantly sufficed in his hands for all the friars, throughout an whole year. After his year of novitiate, he undertook the duty of preacher at the command of his Superior. At that time, owing to bloody feuds, all things human and divine at Salamanca were in such utter confusion, that murders were committed almost every hour, and the streets and squares, and the very churches, flowed with the blood of all classes, especially of the nobility.
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.

At Joannes, tum concionibus, tum privatis colloquiis civium animos demulcens, ad tranquillitatem urbem reduxit. Virum principem graviter offendit, quod illius in subditos sævitiam increpasset. Qua de causa equites duos immisit, qui eum in itinere confoderent, jamque ad ipsum propinquaverant: cum, stupore divinitus immisso, simul cum equis immobiles steterunt, donec ad pedes sancti viri provoluti, sceleris veniam precarentur. Ipse quoque princeps repentino terrore perculsus, jam de salute desperaverat, cum revocato Joanne, facti pœnitens incolumitati redditus est. Factiosi étiam homines, cum eum fustibus peterent, brachiis diriguere, nec ante redditæ vires quam delicti veniam precarentur. Christum Dominum, dum Sacrum faceret, præsentem contueri, atque ex ipso divinitatis fonte cælestia mysteria haurire solitus. Abdita cordis inspicere, ac futura raro eventu præsagire frequens illi fuit, fratrisque filiam septennem mortuam excitavit. Denique mortis die prænuntiato, et Ecclesiæ sacramentis devotissime susceptis, extremum diem clausit, multis ante et post obitum miraculis gloriosus. Quibus rite probatis Alexander octavus Sanctorum numero eum adscripsit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Iste homo perfécit ómnia quæ locútus est ei Deus, et dixit ad eum: Ingrédere in réquiem meam:

Reading 6
It was John, who by public preaching and private conversations, softened the hearts of the citizens so that the town was restored to peace. He grievously offended one of the nobles by rebuking him for his cruelty toward his vassals. This man sent two knights to murder him on the road. They had already come nigh him when God sent a terror upon them, so that they and their horses stood still, until they cast themselves down before the feet of the Saint, imploring his forgiveness for their sin. The Prince himself, also, smitten with a sudden dread, despaired of his salvation, till he had sent for John, who, finding him repent of his deed, restored him to soundness. Some quarrelsome men, likewise, who were fain to give him a cudgelling, found their arms stiffen, nor would their strength come back till they had asked his pardon for their wickedness. Oftentimes when he was celebrating the Holy Liturgy, the Presence of the Lord Christ became sensibly manifest to him, and he drank in things heavenly from their Divine Well-head Himself. Oftentimes also he could see the secrets of men's hearts, and foretell strange things to come. He raised from the dead his own niece, aged seven years. He foretold the day of his own death, and prepared himself by receiving most devoutly the Sacraments of the Church, and then fell asleep in the Lord, upon the 11th day of June, in the year 1475. God glorified him by many miracles, both before and after his death. These being duly proved, Alexander VIII. numbered him among the Saints. the Christians took them, and buried them honourably.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. This is he which did according unto all that God commanded him; and God said unto him: Enter thou into My rest,
* For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.
V. This is he which loved not his life in this world, and is come unto an everlasting kingdom.
R. For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. For thee have I seen righteous before Me among all people.

37:4 Porque as minhas iniquidades se elevaram acima da minha cabeça: * e me esmagam como uma pesada carga.
37:5 Apodreceram e corromperam-se as minhas chagas, * à face da minha ignorância.
37:6 Tornei-me miserável e totalmente curvado: * todo o dia cheio de tristeza andava.

37:14 Eu, porém, como um surdo, não ouvia: * e, como um mudo, não abria a boca.
37:15 Tornei-me como um homem surdo: * e que não tem réplica na sua boca.
37:16 Porque em Vós, ó Senhor, esperei: * Vós me ouvireis, ó Senhor meu Deus.
37:17 Pois disse: nunca triunfem sobre mim os meus inimigos: * eles que, tendo visto os meus pés vacilantes, falaram de mim insolentemente.

38:2 Pósui ori meo custódiam, * cum consísteret peccátor advérsum me.
38:3 Obmútui, et humiliátus sum, et sílui a bonis: * et dolor meus renovátus est.
38:4 Concáluit cor meum intra me: * et in meditatióne mea exardéscet ignis.
38:5 Locútus sum in lingua mea: * Notum fac mihi, Dómine, finem meum.
38:5 Et númerum diérum meórum quis est: * ut sciam quid desit mihi.
38:6 Ecce mensurábiles posuísti dies meos: * et substántia mea tamquam níhilum ante te.
38:6 Verúmtamen univérsa vánitas, * omnis homo vivens.
38:7 Verúmtamen in imágine pertránsit homo: * sed et frustra conturbátur.
38:7 Thesaurízat: * et ignórat cui congregábit ea.
38:8 Et nunc quæ est exspectátio mea? Nonne Dóminus? * Et substántia mea apud te est.
38:9 Ab ómnibus iniquitátibus meis érue me: * oppróbrium insipiénti dedísti me.
38:10 Obmútui, et non apérui os meum, quóniam tu fecísti: * ámove a me plagas tuas.
38:12 A fortitúdine manus tuæ ego deféci in increpatiónibus: * propter iniquitátem corripuísti hóminem.
38:12 Et tabéscere fecísti sicut aráneam ánimam ejus: * verúmtamen vane conturbátur omnis homo.
38:13 Exáudi oratiónem meam, Dómine, et deprecatiónem meam: * áuribus pércipe lácrimas meas.
38:13 Ne síleas: quóniam ádvena ego sum apud te, et peregrínus, * sicut omnes patres mei.
38:14 Remítte mihi, ut refrígerer priúsquam ábeam, * et ámplius non ero.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Ámove, Dómine, a me plagas tuas.
Ant. Remove, O Lord, * thy scourges from me.
Psalm 38 [9]
38:1 Disse:meus caminhos velarei: * para que não peque com minha língua.
38:2 Pus guarda à minha boca, * quando o pecador estava contra mim.
38:3 Permaneci mudo, humilhado e mantive silêncio do bem: * e renovou-se a minha dor.
38:4 Dentro de mim ardia o meu coração: * e na minha meditação acendiam-se chamas de fogo.
38:5 Falei com minha língua: * ó Senhor, fazei-me conhecer o meu fim.
38:6 Qual é o número dos meus dias: * para que saiba o quanto me resta.
38:7 Eis que pusestes os meus dias em medida: * e ante Vós a minha existência nada é.
38:8 Realmente tudo é vaidade, * todo o homem vivente.
38:9 Certamente que o homem como uma sombra passa: * e em vão se conturba.
38:10 Acumula: * e ignora para quem junta.
38:11 Agora, qual é a minha esperança? A não é o Senhor? * Em Vós está a minha substância.
38:12 Livrai-me de todas minhas iniquidades: * um objecto de escárnio para o insensato me fizestes.
38:13 Calei-me e não abri a minha boca, porque Vós o fizestes: * afastai de mim os vossos flagelos.
38:14 Repreendestes-me e debaixo da força de vossa mão desfaleci: * por causa da iniquidade castigastes o homem.
38:15 Fizestes que sua vida se consumisse como uma aranha: * é contudo em vão que todo o homem se inquieta.
38:16 Senhor, escutai a minha oração e a minha súplica: * atendei às minhas lágrimas.
38:17 Não Vos caleis, porque ante Vós eu sou um peregrino, * e um estranho como foram todos meus pais.
38:18 Perdoai-me, para que possa ser refrescado, * antes que parta e deixe de existir.
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. Remove, O Lord, thy scourges from me.
V. Deus, ne síleas a me, remítte mihi.
R. Quóniam íncola ego sum apud te et peregrínus.
V. O Lord, be not thou silent, forgive me.
R. For I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner.
Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidiánum 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.
Absolution. May the Almighty and merciful Lord loose us from the bonds of our sins. Amen.

V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Evangélica léctio sit nobis salus et protéctio. Amen.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Lucam
Luc 12:35-40
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Sint lumbi vestri præcincti, et lucernæ ardentes in mánibus vestris. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Gregórii Papæ
Homilia 13 in Evang.
Sancti Evangélii, fratres caríssimi, apérta vobis est léctio recitata. Sed ne alíquibus ipsa ejus planities alta fortásse videátur, eam sub brevitate transcurrimus, quátenus ejus expositio ita nescientibus fiat cógnita, ut tamen sciéntibus non sit onerosa. Dóminus dicit: Sint lumbi vestri præcincti. Lumbos enim præcingimus, cum carnis luxuriam per continentiam coarctamus. Sed quia minus est, mala non ágere, nisi étiam quisque studeat, et bonis opéribus insudare, protinus additur: Et lucernæ ardentes in mánibus vestris. Lucernas quippe ardentes in mánibus tenemus, cum per bona ópera próximis nostris lucis exémpla monstramus. De quibus profécto opéribus Dóminus dicit: Lúceat lux vestra coram homínibus, ut vídeant ópera vestra bona, et glorificent Patrem vestrum qui in cælis est.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

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

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

From the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 12:35-40
At that time, Jesus said unto His disciples: Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning. And so on.

Homily by Pope St. Gregory the Great.
13th on the Gospels.
Dearly beloved brethren, the words of the Holy Gospel, which have just been read, lie open before you, and, lest their very plainness should make them seem to some to be hard, we will go through them with such shortness as that neither may they which understand not remain unenlightened, nor they which understand be wearied. The Lord saith Let your loins be girded about. Now, we gird our loins about, when by continency we master the lustful inclination of the flesh. But, forasmuch as it sufficeth not for a man to abstain from evil deeds, if he strive not to join thereto the earnest doing of good works, it is immediately added And your lights burning. Our lights burn when, by good works, we give bright example to our neighbour; concerning which works the Lord saith Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father Which is in heaven. Matth. v. 16.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. This is he which wrought great wonders before God, and praised the Lord with all his heart.
* May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them.
V. Behold a man without blame, a worshipper of God in truth, keeping himself clean from every evil work, and abiding still in his innocency.
R. May he pray for all people, that their sins may be forgiven unto them.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipse intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Lectio 8
Duo autem sunt, quæ jubentur, et lumbos restringere, et lucernas tenere: ut et munditia sit castitátis in córpore, et lumen veritátis in operatióne. Redemptori étenim nostro unum sine áltero placére nequáquam potest: si aut is qui bona agit, adhuc luxuriæ inquinamenta non déserit: aut is qui castitate præeminet, necdum se per bona ópera exercet. Nec castitas ergo magna est sine bono ópere, nec opus bonum est aliquod sine castitate. Sed et si utrúmque agitur, restat, ut quisquis ille est, spe ad supérnam pátriam tendat, et nequáquam se a vítiis pro mundi hujus honestate contineat.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Sint lumbi vestri præcíncti, et lucérnæ ardéntes in mánibus vestris:
* Et vos símiles homínibus exspectántibus dóminum suum, quando revertátur a núptiis.
V. Vigiláte ergo, quia nescítis qua hora Dóminus vester ventúrus sit.
R. Et vos símiles homínibus exspectántibus dóminum suum, quando revertátur a núptiis.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et vos símiles homínibus exspectántibus dóminum suum, quando revertátur a núptiis.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. He whose feast-day we are keeping, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
Here, then, are two commandments, to gird our loins about, and to keep our lights burning the cleanness of purity in our body, and the light of the truth in our works. Whoso hath the one and not the other, pleaseth not thereby our Redeemer; that is, he pleaseth Him not which doth good works, but bridleth not himself from the pollutions of lust, neither he which is eminent in chastity, but exerciseth not himself in good works. Neither is chastity a great thing without good works, nor good works anything without chastity. And if any man do both, it remaineth that he must look by hope toward our Fatherland above, and not have for his reason wherethrough he turneth himself away from vice, the love of honour in this present world.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
* And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding.
V. Watch therefore, for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
R. And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Commemoratio SS. Basilidis, Cyrini, Naboris atque Nazarii, Mártyrum
Basilides, Cyrinus, Nabor et Nazarius, Romani milites, nobiles genere, et virtute illustres, christiana religione suscepta, cum Christum Dei Filium, Diocletiano imperatore, prædicarent, ab Aurelio præfecto Urbis comprehensi, et ut diis sacra facerent admoniti, ejus jussa contemnentes, missi sunt in carcerem. Quibus orantibus, cum subito clarissima lux oborta omnium oculis, qui ibidem essent, carcerem collustrasset: illo cælesti splendore commotus Marcellus custodiæ præpositus, multique alii, Christo Domino crediderunt. Verum postea e carcere emissi, ab imperatore Maximiano, cum ejus étiam neglecto imperio, unum Christum Deum et Dominum in ore haberent, scorpionibus cruciati iterum conjiciuntur in vincula: unde septimo die educti, et ante pedes imperatoris constituti, perstiterunt in irrisione inanium deorum, Jesum Christum Deum constantissime confitentes. Quam ob rem damnati, securi feriuntur. Quorum corpora feris objecta, nec ab illis tacta a Christianis honorifice sepulta sunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Tu Rex glóriæ, * Christe.
Tu Patris * sempitérnus es Fílius.

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

Tu, devícto mortis acúleo, * aperuísti credéntibus regna cælórum.

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 numerári.
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.

Commemoration of Sts. Basilides, Cyrinus, Nabor and Nazarius, Martyrs
Basilides, Cyrinus, Nabor, and Nazarius were Roman soldiers, of illustrious birth, and distinguished gallantry. Having embraced the Christian Religion, and being found publishing that Christ was the Son of God, they were arrested by Aurelius, Praefect of Rome under the Emperor Diocletian. As they despised his orders to sacrifice to the gods, they were committed to prison. While they were at prayer there, a brilliant light broke forth before the eyes of all that were there, and shone in all the prison. Marcellinus the keeper of the prison and many others were moved by this heavenly glory to believe in the Lord Christ. Basilides, Cyrinus, Nabor, and Nazarius were afterwards discharged out of the prison. However, in the reign of the Emperor Maximian, when they set light by his commands also, and had ever in their mouth that there is but one Christ, one God, and one Lord, they were tormented with whips loaded with metal, and again cast into chains. Thence, on the seventh day, they were brought out, and set before the Emperor, and there still persisted in mocking at the foolish idols, and declaring that Jesus Christ is God. They were accordingly condemned to death and beheaded. Their bodies were given to wild beasts to eat, but, as the creatures would not touch them,
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.
