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.

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.

10 Now if Timothy come, see that he be with you without fear, for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do.
11 Let no man therefore despise him, but conduct ye him on his way in peace: that he may come to me. For I look for him with the brethren.
12 And touching our brother Apollo, I give you to understand, that I much entreated him to come unto you with the brethren: and indeed it was not his will at all to come at this time. But he will come when he shall have leisure.

14 Let all your things be done in charity.

105:5 Ad vidéndum in bonitáte electórum tuórum, ad lætándum in lætítia gentis tuæ: * ut laudéris cum hereditáte tua.
105:6 Peccávimus cum pátribus nostris: * injúste égimus, iniquitátem fécimus.
105:7 Patres nostri in Ægýpto non intellexérunt mirabília tua: * non fuérunt mémores multitúdinis misericórdiæ tuæ.
105:7 Et irritavérunt ascendéntes in mare, * Mare Rubrum.
105:8 Et salvávit eos propter nomen suum: * ut notam fáceret poténtiam suam.
105:9 Et incrépuit Mare Rubrum, et exsiccátum est, * et dedúxit eos in abýssis sicut in desérto.
105:10 Et salvávit eos de manu odiéntium: * et redémit eos de manu inimíci.
105:11 Et opéruit aqua tribulántes eos: * unus ex eis non remánsit.
105:12 Et credidérunt verbis ejus: * et laudavérunt laudem ejus.
105:13 Cito fecérunt, oblíti sunt óperum ejus: * et non sustinuérunt consílium ejus.
105:14 Et concupiérunt concupiscéntiam in desérto: * et tentavérunt Deum in inaquóso.
105:15 Et dedit eis petitiónem ipsórum: * et misit saturitátem in ánimas eórum.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Salvávit eos Dóminus propter nomen suum.
Nocturn II.
Ant. The Lord saved them * for his own name's sake.
Psalm 105(1-15) [4]
105:1 Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
105:2 Who shall declare the powers of the Lord? * who shall set forth all his praises?
105:3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, * and do justice at all times.
105:4 Remember us, O Lord, in the favour of thy people: * visit us with thy salvation.
105:5 That we may see the good of thy chosen, that we may rejoice in the joy of thy nation: * that thou mayst be praised with thy inheritance.
105:6 We have sinned with our fathers: * we have acted unjustly, we have wrought iniquity.
105:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt: * they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies:
105:7 And they provoked to wrath going up to the sea, * even the Red Sea.
105:8 And he saved them for his own name’s sake: * that he might make his power known.
105:9 And he rebuked the Red Sea, and it was dried up: * and he led them through the depths, as in a wilderness.
105:10 And he saved them from the hand of them that hated them: * and he redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
105:11 And the water covered them that afflicted them: * there was not one of them left.
105:12 And they believed his words: * and they sang his praises.
105:13 They had quickly done, they forgot his works: * and they waited not for his counsels.
105:14 And they coveted their desire in the desert: * and they tempted God in the place without water.
105:15 And he gave them their request: * and sent fulness into their souls.
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. The Lord saved them for his own name's sake.
Ant. Oblíti sunt Deum * qui salvávit eos.
Psalmus 105(16-31) [5]
105:16 Et irritavérunt Moysen in castris: * Aaron, sanctum Dómini.
105:17 Apérta est terra, et deglutívit Dathan: * et opéruit super congregatiónem Abíron.
105:18 Et exársit ignis in synagóga eórum * flamma combússit peccatóres.
105:19 Et fecérunt vítulum in Horeb * et adoravérunt scúlptile.
105:20 Et mutavérunt glóriam suam * in similitúdinem vítuli comedéntis fænum.
105:21 Oblíti sunt Deum, qui salvávit eos, * qui fecit magnália in Ægýpto, mirabília in terra Cham: terribília in Mari Rubro.
105:23 Et dixit ut dispérderet eos: * si non Móyses, eléctus ejus, stetísset in confractióne in conspéctu ejus:
105:24 Ut avérteret iram ejus ne dispérderet eos: * et pro níhilo habuérunt terram desiderábilem:
105:25 Non credidérunt verbo ejus, et murmuravérunt in tabernáculis suis: * non exaudiérunt vocem Dómini.
105:26 Et elevávit manum suam super eos: * ut prostérneret eos in desérto:
105:27 Et ut deíceret semen eórum in natiónibus: * et dispérgeret eos in regiónibus.
105:28 Et initiáti sunt Beélphegor: * et comedérunt sacrifícia mortuórum.
105:29 Et irritavérunt eum in adinventiónibus suis: * et multiplicáta est in eis ruína.
105:30 Et stetit Phínees, et placávit: * et cessávit quassátio.
105:31 Et reputátum est ei in justítiam: * in generatiónem et generatiónem usque in sempitérnum.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Oblíti sunt Deum qui salvávit eos.
Ant. They forgot God * who saved them.
Psalm 105(16-31) [5]
105:16 And they provoked Moses in the camp, * Aaron the holy one of the Lord.
105:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan: * and covered the congregation of Abiron.
105:18 And a fire was kindled in their congregation: * the flame burned the wicked.
105:19 They made also a calf in Horeb: * and they adored the graven thing.
105:20 And they changed their glory * into the likeness of a calf that eateth grass.
105:21 They forgot God, who saved them, * who had done great things in Egypt, wondrous works in the land of Cham: terrible things in the Red Sea.
105:23 And he said that he would destroy them: * had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach:
105:24 To turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them; * and they set at nought the desirable land.
105:25 They believed not his word, and they murmured in their tents: * they hearkened not to the voice of the Lord.
105:26 And he lifted up his hand over them: * to overthrow them in the desert;
105:27 And to cast down their seed among the nations, * and to scatter them in the countries.
105:28 They also were initiated to Beelphegor: * and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
105:29 And they provoked him with their inventions: * and destruction was multiplied among them.
105:30 Then Phinees stood up, and pacified him: * and the slaughter ceased.
105:31 And it was reputed to him unto justice, * to generation and generation for evermore.
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. They forgot God who saved them.
Ant. Cum tribularéntur * vidit Dóminus: et audívit oratiónem eórum.
Psalmus 105(32-48) [6]
105:32 Et irritavérunt eum ad aquas contradictiónis: * et vexátus est Móyses propter eos: quia exacerbavérunt spíritum ejus.
105:33 Et distínxit in lábiis suis: * non disperdidérunt gentes, quas dixit Dóminus illis.
105:35 Et commísti sunt inter gentes, et didicérunt ópera eórum: et serviérunt sculptílibus eórum: * et factum est illis in scándalum.
105:37 Et immolavérunt fílios suos, * et fílias suas dæmóniis.
105:38 Et effudérunt sánguinem innocéntem: * sánguinem filiórum suórum et filiárum suárum, quas sacrificavérunt sculptílibus Chánaan.
105:39 Et infécta est terra in sanguínibus, et contamináta est in opéribus eórum: * et fornicáti sunt in adinventiónibus suis.
105:40 Et irátus est furóre Dóminus in pópulum suum: * et abominátus est hereditátem suam.
105:41 Et trádidit eos in manus géntium: * et domináti sunt eórum qui odérunt eos.
105:42 Et tribulavérunt eos inimíci eórum, et humiliáti sunt sub mánibus eórum: * sæpe liberávit eos.
105:43 Ipsi autem exacerbavérunt eum in consílio suo: * et humiliáti sunt in iniquitátibus suis.
105:44 Et vidit, cum tribularéntur: * et audívit oratiónem eórum.
105:45 Et memor fuit testaménti sui: * et pœnítuit eum secúndum multitúdinem misericórdiæ suæ.
105:46 Et dedit eos in misericórdias * in conspéctu ómnium qui céperant eos.
105:47 Salvos nos fac, Dómine, Deus noster: * et cóngrega nos de natiónibus:
105:47 Ut confiteámur nómini sancto tuo: * et gloriémur in laude tua.
105:48 Benedíctus Dóminus, Deus Israël, a sǽculo et usque in sǽculum: * et dicet omnis pópulus: Fiat, fiat.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Cum tribularéntur vidit Dóminus: et audívit oratiónem eórum.
Ant. And he saw when they were in tribulation * and he heard their prayer.
Psalm 105(32-48) [6]
105:32 They provoked him also at the waters of contradiction: * and Moses was afflicted for their sakes: because they exasperated his spirit.
105:33 And he distinguished with his lips; * they did not destroy the nations of which the Lord spoke unto them.
105:35 And they were mingled among the heathens, and learned their works: and served their idols, * and it became a stumblingblock to them.
105:37 And they sacrificed their sons, * and their daughters to devils.
105:38 And they shed innocent blood: * the blood of their sons and of their daughters which they sacrificed to the idols of Chanaan.
105:39 And the land was polluted with blood, and was defiled with their works: * and they went aside after their own inventions.
105:40 And the Lord was exceedingly angry with his people: * and he abhorred his inheritance.
105:41 And he delivered them into the hands of the nations: * and they that hated them had dominion over them.
105:42 And their enemies afflicted them: and they were humbled under their hands: * many times did he deliver them.
105:43 But they provoked him with their counsel: * and they were brought low by their iniquities.
105:44 And he saw when they were in tribulation: * and he heard their prayer.
105:45 And he was mindful of his covenant: * and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
105:46 And he gave them unto mercies, * in the sight of all those that had made them
105:47 Save us, O Lord, our God: * and gather us from among nations:
105:47 That we may give thanks to thy holy name, * and may glory in thy praise.
105:48 Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting: * and let all the people say: So be it, so be it.

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 His loving-kindness and mercy help us, Who liveth and reigneth with the Father, and the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.

Lectio 4
Paulus, eremitárum auctor et magister, apud inferiórem Thebáidem natus, cum quindecim esset annórum, orbátus paréntibus est. Qui postea declinandæ causa persecutiónis Decii et Valeriáni, et Deo liberius inserviéndi, in eremi spelúncam se cóntulit: ubi, palma ei victum et vestítum præbente, vixit ad centésimum et décimum tertium annum, quo témpore ab Antonio nonagenario Dei admónitu invísitur. Quibus inter se, cum ántea non nossent, proprio nómine consalutántibus, et multa de regno Dei colloquéntibus, corvus, qui ántea semper Paulo dimidiátum panem attulerat, integrum détulit.
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.

Reading 4
Paul the first hermit, and model of all others, was a native of the lower Theba'id in Egypt. At the age of fifteen years he lost both his parents. In order to escape from the persecution of Decius and Valerian, and to serve God in quietness, he betook himself to a cave in the desert. Here there was a palm-tree, on the fruit of which he lived, and of whose leaves he made his raiment until he attained the age of 113 years. At that time * Anthony, being now himself aged
90 Years, received a command from God to go and see him. They met without knowing one another's names, and saluted one another, after which they fell straightway into a long discourse concerning the kingdom of God. Now it so happened that a raven had of a long time brought Paul every day half a loaf, but on this day while they spake together he brought a whole one.
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.

Lectio 5
Post corvi discessum, Eja, inquit Paulus, Dóminus nobis prandium misit, vere pius, vere miséricors. Sexagínta jam anni sunt, cum accipio quotídie dimidii panis fragméntum, nunc ad advéntum tuum milítibus suis Christus duplicávit annonam. Quare cum gratiárum actióne ad fontem capiéntes cibum, ubi tantisper recreáti sunt, íterum gratiis de more Deo actis, noctem in divinis laudibus consumpsérunt. Dilúculo Paulus de morte, quæ sibi instaret, ádmonens Antónium, hortátur, ut pallium, quod ab Athanasio acceperat, ad involvéndum suum corpus afferret. Quo ex itinere rédiens ille, vidit inter Angelórum choros, inter Prophetárum et Apostolórum cœtus Pauli ánimam in cælum ascendere.
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.

Reading 5
When the raven had flown away Well, quoth Paul, the Lord hath sent us our dinner. Truly He is gracious; truly He is merciful. It is now sixty years that I have had half a loaf of bread every day, but now that thou art come, Christ giveth His soldiers double rations. Then they asked a blessing, and ate together, sitting by a spring. When they were refreshed, they returned thanks, as is the custom, and afterwards spent the whole night praising God. At break of day Paul felt the approach of death, and desired Anthony to bring the cloak which Athanasius had given him, to use for his winding-sheet. While Anthony was on his way back from this journey, he saw in a vision the soul of Paul ascending to heaven, surrounded by choirs of angels, and accompanied by the Prophets and Apostles.
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. Ignem sui amóris accéndat Deus in córdibus nostris. Amen.

Lectio 6
Cumque ad ejus cellam pervenísset, invénit genibus complicatis, erecta cervice, exténsisque in altum mánibus corpus exanime: quod pallio obvolvens, hymnosque et psalmos ex christiana traditióne decantans, cum sárculum, quo terram fóderet, non haberet, duo leones ex interiore erémo rápido cursu ad beáti senis corpus ferúntur; ut facile intelligerétur, eos, quo modo póterant, plorátum édere: qui certatim terram pédibus effodiéntes, fóveam, quæ hóminem commode cáperet, effecérunt. Qui cum abiísent, Antonius sanctum corpus in eum locum íntulit; et injecta humo, tumulum ex christiáno more compósuit: túnicam vero Pauli, quam in sportæ modum ex palmæ foliis ille sibi contexúerat, secum áuferens, eo vestítu diébus solemnibus Paschæ et Pentecostes, quoad vixit, usus est.
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:
* Quia te vidi justum coram me ex ómnibus géntibus.
V. Iste est, qui contémpsit vitam mundi, et pervénit ad cæléstia regna.
R. Quia te vidi justum coram me ex ómnibus géntibus.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Quia te vidi justum coram me ex ómnibus géntibus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Spirit's fire Divine in our hearts enkindled shine. Amen.

Reading 6
When Anthony reached the cell of Paul, he found the dead body of the Saint in a kneeling posture, with the head thrown up and the hands stretched out towards heaven. He immediately began to chant the psalms and hymns ordained by Christian tradition, while he wrapped the body in the cloak of Athanasius. He had no spade to dig a grave, but two lions came roaring from the desert, as though to attend the burying, and scratched a hole big enough to hold a man's body, with their paws, showing meanwhile such signs of grief as their nature alloweth. When they were gone away, Anthony put the holy body in this hole, covered it with earth, and arranged it like a Christian's grave. He took away for himself Paul's tunic, which he had woven out of the palm-leaves somewhat after the manner of basket-work, and this tunic Anthony was in the habit of wearing on the great days of the Passover and Pentecost as long as he lived.
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.

106:10 Sedéntes in ténebris, et umbra mortis: * vinctos in mendicitáte et ferro.
106:11 Quia exacerbavérunt elóquia Dei: * et consílium Altíssimi irritavérunt.
106:12 Et humiliátum est in labóribus cor eórum: * infirmáti sunt, nec fuit qui adjuváret.
106:13 Et clamavérunt ad Dóminum cum tribularéntur: * et de necessitátibus eórum liberávit eos.

Ant. Then they cried to the Lord * and he delivered them out of their distresses.
Psalm 106(1-14) [7]
106:1 Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
106:2 Let them say so that have been redeemed by the Lord, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy: * and gathered out of the countries.
106:3 From the rising and the setting of the sun, * from the north and from the sea.
106:4 They wandered in a wilderness, in a place without water: * they found not the way of a city for their habitation.
106:5 They were hungry and thirsty: * their soul fainted in them.
106:6 And they cried to the Lord in their tribulation: * and he delivered them out of their distresses.
106:7 And he led them into the right way: * that they might go to a city of habitation.
106:8 Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: * and his wonderful works to the children of men.
106:9 For he hath satisfied the empty soul, * and hath filled the hungry soul with good things.
106:10 Such as sat in darkness and in the shadow of death: * bound in want and in iron.
106:11 Because they had exasperated the words of God: * and provoked the counsel of the most High:
106:12 And their heart was humbled with labours: * they were weakened, and there was none to help them.
106:13 Then they cried to the Lord in their affliction: * and he delivered them out of their distresses.
106:14 And he brought them out of darkness, * and the shadow of death; and broke their bonds in sunder.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

106:23 They that go down to the sea in ships, * doing business in the great waters:
106:24 These have seen the works of the Lord, * and his wonders in the deep.
106:25 He said the word, and there arose a storm of wind: * and the waves thereof were lifted up.
106:26 They mount up to the heavens, and they go down to the depths: * their soul pined away with evils.
106:27 They were troubled, and reeled like a drunken man; * and all their wisdom was swallowed up.
106:28 And they cried to the Lord in their affliction: * and he brought them out of their distresses.
106:29 And he turned the storm into a breeze: * and its waves were still.
106:30 And they rejoiced because they were still: * and he brought them to the haven which they wished for.
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. These have seen the works of the Lord, and his wonders.

106:35 Pósuit desértum in stagna aquárum: * et terram sine aqua in éxitus aquárum.
106:36 Et collocávit illic esuriéntes: * et constituérunt civitátem habitatiónis.
106:37 Et seminavérunt agros, et plantavérunt víneas: * et fecérunt fructum nativitátis.
106:38 Et benedíxit eis, et multiplicáti sunt nimis: * et juménta eórum non minorávit.
106:39 Et pauci facti sunt: * et vexáti sunt a tribulatióne malórum, et dolóre.
106:40 Effúsa est contémptio super príncipes: * et erráre fecit eos in ínvio, et non in via.
106:41 Et adjúvit páuperem de inópia: * et pósuit sicut oves famílias.
106:42 Vidébunt recti, et lætabúntur: * et omnis iníquitas oppilábit os suum.
106:43 Quis sápiens et custódiet hæc? * et intélleget misericórdias Dómini.

106:31 Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him, * and his wonderful works to the children of men.
106:32 And let them exalt him in the church of the people: * and praise him in the chair of the ancients.
106:33 He hath turned rivers into a wilderness: * and the sources of water into dry ground:
106:34 A fruitful land into barrenness, * for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
106:35 He hath turned a wilderness into pools of water, * and a dry land into water springs.
106:36 And hath placed there the hungry; * and they made a city for their habitation.
106:37 And they sowed fields, and planted vineyards: * and they yielded fruit of birth.
106:38 And he blessed them, and they were multiplied exceedingly: * and their cattle he suffered not to decrease.
106:39 Then they were brought to be few: * and they were afflicted through the trouble of evils and sorrow.
106:40 Contempt was poured forth upon their princes: *and he caused them to wander where there was no passing, and out of the way.
106:41 And he helped the poor out of poverty: * and made him families like a flock of sheep.
106:42 The just shall see, and shall rejoice, * and all iniquity shall stop their mouth.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum
Matt 11:25-30
In illo témpore: Respóndens Jesus dixit: Confíteor tibi, Pater, Dómine cæli et terræ, quia abscondísti hæc a sapiéntibus et prudéntibus, et revelásti ea párvulis. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Augustíni Epíscopi
Sermo 10 de verbis Domini
Veníte ad me, omnes qui laborátis. Quare enim omnes laborámus, nisi quia sumus hómines mortáles, frágiles, infírmi, lútea vasa portántes, quæ fáciunt ínvicem angústias? Sed, si angustiántur vasa carnis, dilaténtur spátia caritátis. Quid ergo dicit, Veníte ad me, omnes qui laborátis, nisi ut non laborétis? Dénique promíssio ejus in promptu est; quóniam laborántes vocávit, quærent forte, qua mercéde vocáti sunt. Et ego vos, inquit, refíciam. Tóllite jugum meum super vos, et díscite a me, non mundum fabricáre, non cuncta visibília et invisibília creáre, non in ipso mundo mirabília fácere et mórtuos suscitáre; sed, Quóniam mitis sum et húmilis corde.
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 Matthew
Matt 11:25-30
At that time, Jesus answered and said: I confess to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them to the little ones. And so on.

Homily by St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.
10th Sermon on the Words of the Lord
Come unto Me, all ye that labour! And wherefore labour we all, but because we are frail, sickly, dying creatures, burdened with earthen vessels which distress us? But if these fleshly vessels be distressful, let the open expanse of love be free and wide. Come unto Me, all ye that labour! and why? That we may labour no more. His promise is an instant promise, for He calleth such as are labouring. Perchance they will ask Him what shall be their reward? And I, saith He, will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of me not how to make the world, not how to create all things visible and invisible, not to work wonders in the earth, nor to raise the dead but for I am meek and lowly in heart.
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.

Magnus esse vis? a mínimo íncipe. Cógitas magnam fábricam constrúere celsitúdinis? de fundaménto prius cógita humilitátis. Et quantam quisque vult et dispónit superimpónere molem ædifícii, quanto erit majus ædifícium, tanto áltius fodit fundaméntum. Et fábrica quidem cum constrúitur, in supérna consúrgit; qui autem fodit fundaméntum, ad ima deprímitur. Ergo et fábrica ante celsitúdinem humiliátur, et fastígium post humiliatiónem erígitur.
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.

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

Wilt thou be great? Begin by being little. Dost thou think to raise up a lofty building? Then lay the foundations thereof in lowliness. The greater soever, and the more massy, be that which any man thinketh to build, so much the deeper doth he dig his foundation. And when the house is built, it towereth heavenward; but he which layeth the foundation goeth down into the earth. The building, therefore, is low before it is high, and, after it is low, it riseth high to the roof.
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.

Commemoratio S. Mauri, Abbati
Maurus nobilis Romanus, puer a patre Eutychio Deo sub sancti Benedicti disciplína oblatus, brevi tantum divina grátia profecit, ut ipsi magistro admiratióni esset; qui illum sæpe, véluti regularis observantiæ et virtútum ómnium specimen, ceteris discípulis ad imitándum proponebat. Cujus adhuc adolescentis illud admirábilis obediéntiæ exemplum a sancto Gregório Papa commemorátur: nam, cum Placidus mónachus in lacum prolapsus, aquárum ímpetu raperétur, sancti Patris jussu accurrens Maurus, et super aquas incédens, socium capíllis apprehensum, ad terram attraxit. Missus in Gálliam ab eodem sancto Benedicto, célebri monasterio exstructo, cui annos quadragínta præfuit, monasticam disciplínam mirifice propagávit. Denique sanctitáte et miraculis clarus, septuagenario major migrávit in cælum, anno salútis quingentésimo sexagésimo quinto.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.


Te Deum
Te Deum laudámus: * te Dóminum confitémur.
Te ætérnum Patrem * omnis terra venerátur.
Tibi omnes Ángeli, * tibi Cæli, et univérsæ Potestátes:
Tibi Chérubim et Séraphim * incessábili voce proclámant:

(Fit reverentia) Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus * Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.

Pleni sunt cæli et terra * majestátis glóriæ tuæ.
Te gloriósus * Apostolórum chorus,
Te Prophetárum * laudábilis númerus,
Te Mártyrum candidátus * laudat exércitus.
Te per orbem terrárum * sancta confitétur Ecclésia,
Patrem * imménsæ majestátis;
Venerándum tuum verum * et únicum Fílium;
Sanctum quoque * Paráclitum Spíritum.
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.
Tu ad déxteram Dei sedes, * in glória Patris.
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 for St. Maur, Abbot.
Maurus was born of a noble Roman family, and while he was yet a child was offered to God by his father Eutychius, in the order and under the personal teaching of St. Benedict. In a short while he made such progress in the life of grace that he became a wonder to his master, who often held him up to his other disciples as a pattern of regular observance and all virtues. While he was yet very young, Pope St. Gregory telleth a wonderful instance of his obedience. Placid the monk having fallen into a lake where he was being swept away by the current, the holy Patriarch called Maurus and bade him run to the rescue, which he did, walking on the water till he reached Placid, whom he took by the hair of the head and dragged to the shore. He was sent by St. Benedict into France, where he founded the celebrated monastery (of Glanfeuil, now called St. Maur-sur-Loire,) which he governed for forty years. He was a zealous and successful propagator of monastic discipline. He passed to heaven, famous for holiness and miracles, when he was more than seventy years of age, in the year of Salvation 565.
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.
