Ant. O come let us worship the King of kings. * This day was His Mother taken to the heavens above.
Ant. O come let us worship the King of kings. * This day was His Mother taken to the heavens above.
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. O come let us worship the King of kings. * This day was His Mother taken to the heavens above.
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. This day was His Mother taken to the heavens above.
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. O come let us worship the King of kings. * This day was His Mother taken to the heavens above.
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. This day was His Mother taken to the heavens above.
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 Proprio Sanctorum}
Surge! Jam terris fera bruma cessit,
Ridet in pratis decus omne florum,
Alma quæ Vitæ Génitrix fuísti,
Surge, María!

Lílium fulgens velut in rubéto,
Mortis auctórem teris una, carpens
Sóntibus fructum pátribus negátum
Arbore vitæ.

Arca non putri fabricáta ligno
Manna tu servas, fluit unde virtus,
Ipsa qua surgent animáta rursus
Ossa sepúlcris.

Prǽsidis mentis dócilis minístra,
Haud caro tabo pátitur resólvi;
Spíritus imo sine fine consors
Tendit ad astra.

Surge! Dilécto pete nixa cælum,
Sume consértum diadéma stellis,
Teque natórum récinens beátam
Excipe carmen.

Laus sit excélsæ Tríadi perénnis,
Quæ tibi, Virgo, tríbuit corónam,
Atque regínam statuítque nostram
Próvida matrem.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Proper of Saints}
Arise! the cold blasts from earth have receded,
And in the field are lovely flowers smiling,
For thee, O gracious Mother, bearer of Life,
Arise, O Mary!

Beautiful Lily blooming 'mid the brambles,
Death's haughty author thou alone didst conquer,
Plucking life-giving tree of fruits the fathers
By sin did not taste.

Ark of sweet wood not destined for ruin,
Holding the manna, whence springeth forth the power
Summoning forth the bones again arisen
From depths of the tomb.

Thou handmaid, faithful to the Ruler of hearts,
Thy flesh cruel decay could never touch,
Thy soul of Spirit partaking without end,
Hath winged to the stars.

Leaning on thy beloved, arise, go heav'nward!
Accept the crown with stars for thee bedecked,
List to the hymn thy children sing on this day,
Calling thee blessed.

Praise to the Triune Godhead everlasting,
Who hath caused thee, O Virgin, to be crowned,
And providently willed our Queen thou shouldst be
Also our Mother.
Amen.

11 Cui dixit: Quis enim indicávit tibi quod nudus esses, nisi quod ex ligno de quo præcéperam tibi ne coméderes, comedísti?
12 Dixítque Adam: Múlier quam dedísti mihi sóciam, dedit mihi de ligno, et comédi.
13 Et dixit Dóminus Deus ad mulíerem: Quare hoc fecísti? Quæ respóndit: Serpens decépit me, et comédi.
14 Et ait Dóminus Deus ad serpéntem: Quia fecísti hoc, maledíctus es inter ómnia animántia et béstias terræ; super pectus tuum gradiéris, et terram cómedes cunctis diébus vitæ tuæ.

Lesson from the book of Genesis
Gen 3:9-15
9 And the Lord God called Adam, and said to him: Where art thou?
10 And he said: I heard thy voice in paradise; and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.
11 And he said to him: And who hath told thee that thou wast naked, but that thou hast eaten of the tree whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldst not eat?
12 And Adam said: The woman, whom thou gavest me to be my companion, gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13 And the Lord God said to the woman: Why hast thou done this? And she answered: The serpent deceived me, and I did eat.
14 And the Lord God said to the serpent: Because thou hast done this thing, thou art cursed among all cattle, and beasts of the earth: upon thy breast shalt thou go, and earth shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.
15 I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I saw her, when, fair like a dove, she winged her flight above the rivers of waters. The priceless savour of her perfumes hung heavy in her garments.
* And about her it was as the flower of roses in the spring of the year, and lilies of the valleys.
V. Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like a pillar of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense?
R. And about her it was as the flower of roses in the spring of the year, and lilies of the valleys.

20 Christus resurréxit a mórtuis primítiæ dormiéntium,
21 Quóniam quidem per hóminem mors, et per hóminem resurréctio mortuórum.
22 Et sicut in Adam omnes moriúntur, ita et in Christo omnes vivificabúntur;
23 Unusquísque autem in suo órdine: primítiæ Christus; deínde ii qui sunt Christi, qui in advéntu ejus credidérunt.
24 Deínde finis, cum tradíderit regnum Deo et Patri, cum evacuáverit omnem principátum, et potestátem, et virtútem.
25 Opórtet autem illum regnáre, donec ponat omnes inimícos sub pédibus ejus.
26 Novíssima autem inimíca destruétur mors.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Sicut cedrus exaltáta sum in Líbano, et sicut cypréssus in monte Sion: quasi myrrha elécta,

From the First Epistle of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians
1 Cor 15:20-26
20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, the firstfruits of them that sleep:
21 For by a man came death, and by a man the resurrection of the dead.
22 And as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all shall be made alive.
23 But every one in his own order: the firstfruits Christ, then they that are of Christ, who have believed in his coming.
24 Afterwards the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God and the Father, when he shall have brought to nought all principality, and power, and virtue.
25 For he must reign, until he hath put all his enemies under his feet.
26 And the enemy death shall be destroyed last.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I was exalted like a cedar in Lebanon, and as a cypress-tree upon Mount Zion. Like the best myrrh
* I yielded a pleasant odour.
V. Like cinnamon and sweet balsam.
R. I yielded a pleasant odour.

1 Cor 15:53-57
53 Opórtet enim corruptíbile hoc indúere incorruptiónem, et mortále hoc indúere immortalitátem.
54 Cum autem mortále hoc indúerit immortalitátem, tunc fiet sermo qui scriptus est: Absórpta est mors in victória.
55 Ubi est, mors, victória tua? ubi est, mors, stímulus tuus?
56 Stímulus autem mortis peccátum est, virtus vero peccáti lex.
57 Deo autem grátias, qui dedit nobis victóriam per Dóminum Jesum Christum.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Quæ est ista quæ procéssit sicut sol, et formósa tamquam Jerúsalem?

V. Et sicut dies verni circúmdabant eam flores rosárum et lília convállium.

Reading 3
1 Cor 15:53-57
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption; and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 And when this mortal hath put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?
56 Now the sting of death is sin: and the power of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, who hath given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Who is this that cometh up like the sun? This, comely as Jerusalem?
* The daughters of Zion saw her, and called her blessed: the queens also, and they praised her.
V. And about her it was as the flower of roses in the spring of the year, and lilies of the valleys.
R. The daughters of Zion saw her, and called her blessed the queens also, and they praised her.

Oratio 2 de Dormit. B. M. V., post init.
Hódie sacra et animáta arca Dei vivéntis, quæ suum in útero concépit Creatórem, requiéscit in templo Dómini, quod nullis est exstrúctum mánibus. Et David exsúltat ejus parens, et cum eo choros ducunt Angeli, célebrant Archángeli, Virtútes gloríficant, Principátus exsúltant, Potestátes collætántur, gaudent Dominatiónes, Throni festum diem agunt, laudant Chérubim, glóriam ejus prǽdicant Séraphim. Hódie Eden novi Adam paradísum súscipit animátum, in quo solúta est condemnátio, in quo plantátum est lignum vitæ, in quo opérta fuit nostra núditas.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Ornátam monílibus fíliam Jerúsalem Dóminus concupívit:

From the Sermons of St. John of Damascus.
2nd on the Falling-asleep of Blessed Mary.
This day the holy and animated Ark of the living God, which had held within it its own Maker, is borne to rest in that Temple of the Lord, which is not made with hands. David, whence it sprang, leapeth before it, and in company with him the Angels dance, the Archangels sing aloud, the Virtues ascribe glory, the Princedoms shout for joy, the Powers make merry, the Lordships rejoice, the Thrones keep holiday, the Cherubim utter praise, and the Seraphim proclaim its glory. This day the Eden of the new Adam receiveth the living garden of delight, wherein the condemnation was annulled, wherein the Tree of Life was planted, wherein our nakedness was covered.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. When the Lord beheld the daughter of Jerusalem adorned with her jewels, He greatly desired her beauty
* And when the daughters of Zion saw her, they cried out that she was most blessed, saying thy name is as ointment poured forth.
V. Upon thy right hand did stand the Queen in a vesture of gold wrought about with diverse colours.

Hódie Virgo immaculáta, quæ nullis terrénis inquináta est afféctibus, sed cæléstibus educáta cogitatiónibus, non in terram revérsa est; sed, cum esset animátum cælum, in cæléstibus tabernáculis collocátur. Ex qua enim ómnibus vera vita manávit, quómodo illa mortem gustáret? Sed cedit legi látæ ab eo quem génuit; et, ut fília véteris Adam, véterem senténtiam súbiit (nam et ejus Fílius, qui est vita ipsa, eam non recusávit); ut autem Dei vivéntis Mater, ad illum ipsum digne assúmitur.

Reading 5
This day the stainless maiden, who had been defiled by no earthly lust, but ennobled by heavenly desires, returned not to dust, but, being herself a living heaven, took her place among the heavenly mansions. From her true life had flowed for all men, and how should she taste of death? But she yielded obedience to the law established by Him to Whom she had given birth, and, as the daughter of the old Adam, underwent the old sentence, which even her Son, Who is the very Life Itself, had not refused; but, as the Mother of the living God, she was worthily taken by Him unto Himself.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. All generations shall call me blessed.
* For He that is mighty, even the Lord, hath done to me great things; and Holy is His Name.

From the Acts of Pope Pius XII

Since indeed the universal Church hath at all times and throughout the ages manifested faith in the bodily Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and since the Bishops of the whole world by an almost unanimous agreement have petitioned that this truth, which is enshrined in Sacred Scripture and deeply rooted in the souls of Christ's faithful, and is also truly in accord with other revealed truths, should be defined as a dogma of the divine and Catholic Faith, Pope Pius XII, acceding to the requests of the whole Church, decreed that this privilege of the Blessed Virgin Mary be solemnly proclaimed, and thus, on the first day of November of the year of the Great Jubilee, nineteen hundred and fifty, at Rome, in the open square before the Basilica of St. Peter, surrounded by a throng of many Cardinals and Bishops of the Holy Roman Church who had come from distant parts of the earth, and before a great multitude of the faithful, with the whole Catholic world rejoicing, proclaimed in these words and with infallible statement the bodily Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into heaven: Wherefore, having offered to God continual prayers of supplication, and having invoked the light of the Spirit of Truth, to the glory of Almighty God who hath enriched the Virgin Mary with his special favour; in honour of his Son, the immortal King of ages and victor over sin and death; for the increase of the glory of the same august Mother, and for the joy and exultation of the whole Church, by the authority of Our Lord Jesus Christ, of the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and by our own authority, we pronounce, declare and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma that: The Immaculate Mother of God, Mary ever Virgin, was, at the end of her earthly life, assumed body and soul into heavenly glory.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Blessed art thou, O Virgin Mary, who hast carried the Lord, the Maker of the world.
* Thou hast borne Him Who created thee, and thou abidest a virgin for ever.
V. Hail, Mary, full of grace. the Lord is with thee.
R. Thou hast borne Him Who created thee, and thou abidest a virgin for ever.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Lucam
Luc 1:41-50
In illo témpore: Repléta est Spíritu Sancto Elísabeth et exclamávit voce magna, et dixit: Benedícta tu inter mulíeres. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Petri Canísii Presbýteri
De Maria Deipara Virgine, lib. 5, c. 6
Férias Deíparæ sacras, ut frequénter, ita reverénter perágit Ecclésia, certo intéllegens, Deo gratum, et christifidélibus dignum, hoc esse offícium, quo inter beátos et beátas omnes beatíssima Dómini et Dei nostri mater, certis anni tempóribus ac públicis cæremóniis sæpenúmero celebrátur. Inter has autem férias, quæ tot sǽculis religióse háctenus observántur, festum Assumptiónis máximum reputátur, locúmque príncipem tenet. Nec dies quidem ullus Maríæ lǽtior feliciórque cóntigit, si novam et ánimæ et córporis felicitátem eo die illi collátam rite contemplémur: ideóque si ántea unquam, tunc vel máxime spíritus et ánima et corpus ejus in Deum vivum mirabíliter exsultávit, ípsaque summo jure dícere pótuit: Respéxit humilitátem ancíllæ suæ: Ecce enim ex hoc beátam me dicent omnes generatiónes: quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Diffúsa est grátia in lábiis tuis:
* Proptérea benedíxit te Deus in ætérnum.
V. Myrrha, et gutta, et cásia a vestiméntis tuis, a dómibus ebúrneis, ex quibus delectavérunt te fíliæ regum in honóre tuo.
R. Proptérea benedíxit te Deus in ætérnum.

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 1:41-50
At that time: Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: and she spoke out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women. And so on.

A Homily by St. Peter Canisius, the Priest
De Maria Deipara Virgine, lib. 5, c. 6
The Church frequently and reverently keepeth feastdays dedicated to the Mother of God, realizing that it is a work pleasing to God and worthy of the faithful if many feasts, with fixed dates and public ceremonies, are celebrated in honour of the most blessed of all the blessed in heaven, the Mother of our Lord and God. Among all these feasts which have been celebrated so devotedly for so many years, even unto the present day, the Feast of the Assumption is considered the greatest and holdeth chief place. Indeed there was no happier or more joyful day for Mary, if we duly consider the happiness of both body and soul granted to her on that day. Then especially, as never before, her spirit, soul and body rejoiced wondrously in the living God and she could rightfully say: He hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden; for behold, all generations shall call me blessed; for he that is mighty hath magnified me.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Grace is poured into thy lips
* Therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
V. thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces whereby kings' daughters among thy honourable women have made thee glad.
R. Therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Cujus festum cólimus, ipsa Virgo vírginum intercédat pro nobis ad Dóminum. Amen.

Quare nos étiam, qui te Filiúmque tuum amámus, o ter beáta et vere augústa Mater, non póssumus huic præcláræ et incomparábili felicitáti tuæ non ex ánimo gratulári, quandóquidem quæcúmque a Dómino tibi et de te dicta sunt, tam pulchro éxitu concludúntur, ac omni ex parte tandem perficiúntur. Beáta quæ non modo credidísti, sed fídei étiam omnísque virtútis fructum et finem hódie consecúta es, et ejus quem tantópere amásti atque desiderásti, jucundíssimo conspéctu nunc demum pérfrui meruísti. Emmanuélem in castéllum mundi hujus intrántem, tamquam hóspitem, hóspita excepísti: hódie ab illo vicíssim in regále suum palátium excíperis, et tamquam mater tali Salomóne digna magnífice primum honoráris.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Beáta es Virgo María, Dei Génitrix, quæ credidísti Dómino: perfécta sunt in te quæ dicta sunt tibi: ecce exaltáta es super choros Angelórum:
* Intercéde pro nobis ad Dóminum, Deum nóstrum.
V. Ave, María, grátia plena, Dóminus tecum.
R. Intercéde pro nobis ad Dóminum, Deum nóstrum.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Intercéde pro nobis ad Dóminum, Deum nóstrum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. She whose feast-day we are keeping, Mary, blessed Maid of Maidens, be our Advocate with God. Amen.

Reading 8
O thrice blessed and truly august Mother, it is for this reason that we who love thee and thy Son cannot refrain from congratulating thee with all sincerity upon thine admirable and incomparable happiness, especially since everything that hath been said to thee and about thee by the Lord, is brought to a conclusion by thy beautiful passing away from this life, and in every wise hath been perfectly fulfilled. Blessed art thou who hast not only believed but hast this day attained unto the end of faith and the fruit of all virtue, and now at last hast merited to enjoy the most pleasing sight of him whom thou didst love and desire so greatly. Thyself a guest, thou didst receive Emmanuel who as a guest did enter into thee, as into a mighty fortress in this world; and today, thou in turn art received by him into his royal mansion, and magnificently welcomed with the highest honour, as befitteth one found worthy to be the Mother of such a Solomon.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O Virgin Mary, Mother of God, blessed art thou that didst believe the Lord, for there hath been a performance of those things which were told thee from the Lord. Behold, thou art exalted over choirs of Angels.
* Plead for us with the Lord our God.
V. Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
R. Plead for us with the Lord our God.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Plead for us with the Lord our God.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Felix dies, qui tam pretiósum munus de hujus mundi desérto transmísit, et ad sanctam æternámque civitátem ita perdúxit, ut commúne et incredíbile gáudium, nec minor admirátio cælítibus ómnibus crearétur. Felix dies, qui sponsæ languéntis tam ardéntibus quam diutúrnis desidériis satisfécit, ut quod quæsíverat inveníret, quod petíverat accíperet, quod exspectárat secúra possidéret, nimírum in illa summi æterníque boni perfécta visióne atque fruitióne pénitus conquiéscens. Felix dies, qui ancíllam Dómini humíllimam eo usque provéxit ac éxtulit, ut præstantíssima cæli Regína, mundíque Dómina efficerétur, et ne áltius quidem posset assúrgere, quóniam in Regni sólio sublimáta, post Christum gloriósa resédit. Felix hic planéque venerándus dies est, qui Regínam et Matrem nobis poténtem simul et cleméntem in regno Dei constítuit ac confirmávit, ut eámdem, quæ Júdicis mater assídue manet, matrem misericórdiæ nobis favéntem, apud Christum patrocinántem, nostrǽque salútis negótia fidéliter procurántem habeámus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

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.

Fiat misericórdia tua, Dómine, super nos, * quemádmodum sperávimus in te.
In te, Dómine, sperávi: * non confúndar in ætérnum.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 9
O blessed day which sent so precious a gift from the desert of this world, and carried it to the holy and eternal city, so that universal and unheard of joy no less than admiration welled up in all the blessed in heaven. O blessed day, that fulfilled the long and ardent yearning of the gentle spouse, so that she might find what she had sought, that she might receive what she asked; that what she awaited she might possess securely, resting safely at last in that perfect vision and inward joy of the eternal and all-great Goodness. O blessed day which raised up and so highly exalted this most humble handmaiden of the Lord that she might become the most glorious Queen of Heaven and the mistress of the world. Indeed she could not have risen to more sublime heights since she had been elevated to the very Throne of the heavenly kingdom, and thus was established in glory next after Christ. O blessed and truly honourable is this day which constituted and confirmed for us a Queen and Mother who is at once powerful and merciful in the kingdom of God, that we might have her, who ever remaineth the Mother of the Judge, as a Mother of mercy protecting us and interceding for us with Christ, unceasingly watching over the work of our salvation.
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.
