Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Egrégie Doctor, Paule, mores ínstrue,
Et nostra tecum péctora in cælum trahe;
Veláta dum merídiem cernat fides,
Et solis instar sola regnet cáritas.

Sit Trinitáti sempitérna glória,
Honor, potéstas atque iubilátio,
In unitáte, quæ gubérnat ómnia,
Per univérsa sæculórum sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
Our souls' great teacher, Paul, our guide in wisdom's ways,
Teach us, our fainting hearts, to heaven's glad clime to raise,
Till faith in clearest light her bright meridian gains,
And love with sun-like fire within each bosom reigns.

All honour, might, and power, and hymns of joy we bring,
While to the Trinity eternal praise we sing;
He rules the universe in wondrous Unity,
And shall, throughout the days of all eternity.
Amen.

63:3 Thou hast protected me from the assembly of the malignant; * from the multitude of the workers of iniquity.
63:4 For they have whetted their tongues like a sword; * they have bent their bow a bitter thing, to shoot in secret the undefiled.
63:6 They will shoot at him on a sudden, and will not fear: * they are resolute in wickedness.
63:6 They have talked of hiding snares; * they have said: Who shall see them?
63:7 They have searched after iniquities: * they have failed in their search.
63:7 Man shall come to a deep heart: * and God shall be exalted.
63:8 The arrows of children are their wounds: * and their tongues against them are made weak.
63:9 All that saw them were troubled; * and every man was afraid.
63:10 And they declared the works of God: * and understood his doings.
63:11 The just shall rejoice in the Lord, and shall hope in him: * and all the upright in heart shall be praised.
℣. 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.

1 Saulus autem adhuc spirans minárum et cædis in discípulos Dómini, accéssit ad príncipem sacerdótum,
2 Et pétiit ab eo epístolas in Damáscum ad synagógas: ut si quos invenísset huius viæ viros ac mulíeres, vinctos perdúceret in Ierúsalem.
3 Et cum iter fáceret, cóntigit ut appropinquáret Damásco: et súbito circumfúlsit eum lux de cælo.
4 Et cadens in terram audívit vocem dicéntem sibi: Saule, Saule, quid me perséqueris?
5 Qui dixit: Quis es, dómine? Et ille: Ego sum Iesus, quem tu perséqueris: durum est tibi contra stímulum calcitráre.
℣. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
℟. Deo grátias.

Lesson from the Acts of the Apostles
Acts 9:1-5
1 And Saul, as yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest,
2 And asked of him letters to Damascus, to the synagogues: that if he found any men and women of this way, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
3 And as he went on his journey, it came to pass that he drew nigh to Damascus; and suddenly a light from heaven shined round about him.
4 And falling on the ground, he heard a voice saying to him: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
5 Who said: Who art thou, Lord? And he: I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. It is hard for thee to kick against the goad.
℣. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
℟. Thanks be to God.

℟. He That wrought effectually in Peter to the Apostleship, the Same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles,
* And they perceived the grace that was given unto me of the Lord Christ.
℣. The grace of God which was bestowed upon me was not in vain, but His grace abideth ever in me.
℟. And they perceived the grace that was given unto me of the Lord Christ.

8 Surréxit autem Saulus de terra, apertísque óculis nihil vidébat. Ad manus autem illum trahéntes, introduxérunt Damáscum.

6 And he trembling and astonished, said: Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?
7 And the Lord said to him: Arise, and go into the city, and there it shall be told thee what thou must do. Now the men who went in company with him, stood amazed, hearing indeed a voice, but seeing no man.
8 And Saul arose from the ground; and when his eyes were opened, he saw nothing. But they leading him by the hands, brought him to Damascus.
9 And he was there three days, without sight, and he did neither eat nor drink.

12 And he saw a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hands upon him, that he might receive his sight.
13 But Ananias answered: Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints in Jerusalem.
14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that invoke thy name.
15 And the Lord said to him: Go thy way; for this man is to me a vessel of election, to carry my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel.
16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.

℟. Thanks be to God.

Hymn
Now let the earth with joy resound,
And heaven the chant re-echo round;
Nor heaven nor earth too high can raise
The great Apostles' glorious praise.

O ye who, throned in glory dread,
Shall judge the living and the dead,
Lights of the world forevermore!
To you the suppliant prayer we pour.

Ye close the sacred gates on high;
At your command apart they fly:
Oh! loose for us the guilty chain
We strive to break, and strive in vain.

Sickness and health your voice obey;
At your command they go or stay:
From sin's disease our souls restore;
In good confirm us more and more.

So when the world is at its end,
And Christ to judgement shall descend,
May we be called those joys to see
Prepared from all eternity.

Praise to the Father, with the Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One;
As ever was in ages past,
And so shall be while ages last.
Amen.

℣. O Holy Apostle Paul, thou art a chosen vessel unto God.
℟. To preach the Gospel throughout the whole world.

Hymn
Now in the sun's new dawning ray,
Lowly of heart, our God we pray
That he from harm may keep us free
In all the deeds this day shall see.

May fear of him our tongues restrain,
Lest strife unguarded speech should stain:
His favouring care our guardian be,
Lest our eyes feed on vanity.

May every heart be pure from sin
And folly find no place therein:
Scant need of food, excess denied,
Wear down in us the body's pride.

That when the light of day is gone,
And night in course shall follow on.
We, free from cares the world affords,
May chant the praise that is our Lord's.

All laud to God the Father be,
All praise, Eternal Son, to thee:
All glory, as is ever meet,
To God the holy Paraclete.
Amen.

Psalmus 51 [2]
51:3 Quid gloriáris in malítia, * qui potens es in iniquitáte?
51:4 Tota die iniustítiam cogitávit lingua tua: * sicut novácula acúta fecísti dolum.
51:5 Dilexísti malítiam super benignitátem: * iniquitátem magis quam loqui æquitátem.
51:6 Dilexísti ómnia verba præcipitatiónis, * lingua dolósa.
51:7 Proptérea Deus déstruet te in finem, * evéllet te, et emigrábit te de tabernáculo tuo: et radícem tuam de terra vivéntium.
51:8 Vidébunt iusti, et timébunt, et super eum ridébunt, et dicent: * Ecce homo, qui non pósuit Deum adiutórem suum:
51:9 Sed sperávit in multitúdine divitiárum suárum: * et præváluit in vanitáte sua.
51:10 Ego autem, sicut olíva fructífera in domo Dei, * sperávi in misericórdia Dei in ætérnum: et in sǽculum sǽculi.

Psalm 51 [2]
51:3 Why dost thou glory in malice, * thou that art mighty in iniquity?
51:4 All the day long thy tongue hath devised injustice: * as a sharp razor, thou hast wrought deceit.
51:5 Thou hast loved malice more than goodness: * and iniquity rather than to speak righteousness.
51:6 Thou hast loved all the words of ruin, * O deceitful tongue.
51:7 Therefore will God destroy thee for ever: * he will pluck thee out, and remove thee from thy dwelling place: and thy root out of the land of the living.
51:8 The just shall see and fear, and shall laugh at him, and say: * Behold the man that made not God his helper:
51:9 But trusted in the abundance of his riches: * and prevailed in his vanity.
51:10 But I, as a fruitful olive tree in the house of God, * have hoped in the mercy of God for ever, yea for ever and ever.
51:11 I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: * and I will wait on thy name, for it is good in the sight of thy saints.

52:3 Deus de cælo prospéxit super fílios hóminum: * ut vídeat si est intéllegens, aut requírens Deum.
52:4 Omnes declinavérunt, simul inútiles facti sunt: * non est qui fáciat bonum, non est usque ad unum.
52:5 Nonne scient omnes qui operántur iniquitátem, * qui dévorant plebem meam ut cibum panis?
52:6 Deum non invocavérunt: * illic trepidavérunt timóre, ubi non erat timor.
52:6 Quóniam Deus dissipávit ossa eórum qui homínibus placent: * confúsi sunt, quóniam Deus sprevit eos.

52:3 God looked down from heaven on the children of men: * to see if there were any that did understand, or did seek God.
52:4 All have gone aside, they are become unprofitable together, * there is none that doth good, no not one.
52:5 Shall not all the workers of iniquity know, * who eat up my people as they eat bread?
52:6 They have not called upon God: * there have they trembled for fear, where there was no fear.
52:6 For God hath scattered the bones of them that please men: * they have been confounded, because God hath despised them.

January 26th 2023, the 4th day of the Moon, were born into the better life:

At Smyrna, holy Polycarp, a disciple of the blessed Apostle John, and by him ordained Bishop of that city, having the charge of all Asia. In the reign of Mark Antony, and Lucius Aurelius Commodus, as the Pro-consul was sitting in the amphitheatre all the people cried out against Polycarp, and to please them he was cast into the fire, but forasmuch as it burned him not he was pierced with the sword, and so received the crown of martyrdom, (in the year 166.) With him there suffered also twelve others that were come from Philadelphia unto the city aforesaid.
At Hippo, in Africa, the holy martyrs Theogenes, Bishop of that city, and thirty-six others, who in the persecution under the Emperor Valerian reckoned cheaply death here in time, and received the crown of life eternal, (about the year 260.)
At Bethlehem of Judah, the holy widow Paula, mother of Eustochium, the virgin of Christ. She was of a very noble senatorial family, that gave up the world and distributed all her goods to feed the poor and betook herself to the manger of the Lord, and thence passed away into the kingdom of heaven endowed with many graces and crowned with a long martyrdom, (in the year 404.) Jerome hath written of her life, full of graces.
In the country of Paris, (in the year 685,) holy Bathildes, Queen (of France,) illustrious for her holiness and the glory of her miracles.

Psalm 138 [5]
138:1 Lord, thou hast proved me, and known me: * thou hast known my sitting down, and my rising up.
138:3 Thou hast understood my thoughts afar off: * my path and my life thou hast searched out.
138:4 And thou hast foreseen all my ways: * for there is no speech on my tongue.
138:5 Behold, O Lord, thou hast known all things, the last and those of old: * thou hast formed me, and hast laid thy hand upon me.
138:6 Thy knowledge is become wonderful to me: * it is high, and I cannot reach to it.
138:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? * or whither shall I flee from thy face?
138:8 If I ascend into heaven, thou art there: * if I descend into hell, thou art present.
138:9 If I take my wings early in the morning, * and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea:
138:10 Even there also shall thy hand lead me: * and thy right hand shall hold me.
138:11 And I said: Perhaps darkness shall cover me: * and night shall be my light in my pleasures.
138:12 But darkness shall not be dark to thee, and night shall be light as the day: * the darkness thereof, and the light thereof are alike to thee.
138:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: * thou hast protected me from my mother’s womb.
138:14 I will praise thee, for thou art fearfully magnified: * wonderful are thy works, and my soul knoweth right well.
138:15 My bone is not hidden from thee, which thou hast made in secret: * and my substance in the lower parts of the earth.
138:16 Thy eyes did see my imperfect being, and in thy book all shall be written: * days shall be formed, and no one in them.
138:17 But to me thy friends, O God, are made exceedingly honourable: * their principality is exceedingly strengthened.
138:18 I will number them, and they shall be multiplied above the sand: * I rose up and am still with thee.
138:19 If thou wilt kill the wicked, O God: * ye men of blood, depart from me:
138:20 Because you say in thought: * They shall receive thy cities in vain.
138:21 Have I not hated them, O Lord, that hated thee: * and pined away because of thy enemies?
138:22 I have hated them with a perfect hatred: * and they are become enemies to me.
138:23 Prove me, O God, and know my heart: * examine me, and know my paths.
138:24 And see if there be in me the way of iniquity: * and lead me in the eternal way.

Hymn
Before the ending of the day,
Creator of the world, we pray
That with thy wonted favor thou
Wouldst be our guard and keeper now.

From all ill dreams defend our eyes,
From nightly fears and fantasies;
Tread under foot our ghostly foe,
That no pollution we may know.

O Father, that we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ, thine only Son;
Who, with the Holy Ghost and thee,
Doth live and reign eternally.
Amen.
