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 Proprio de Tempore}
Auctor beáte sǽculi,
Christe, Redémptor ómnium,
Lumen Patris de lúmine,
Deúsque verus de Deo.

Amor coégit te tuus
Mortále corpus súmere,
Ut novus Adam rédderes,
Quod vetus ille abstúlerat.

Ille amor, almus ártifex
Terræ marísque, et síderum,
Erráta patrum míserans,
Et nostra rumpens víncula.

Non Corde discédat tuo
Vis illa amóris íncliti:
Hoc fonte gentes háuriant
Remissiónis grátiam.

Percússum ad hoc est láncea,
Passúmque ad hoc est vúlnera:
Ut nos laváret sórdibus,
Unda fluénte, et sánguine.

Glória tibi Dómine,
Qui Corde fundis grátiam,
Cum Patre, et Sancto Spíritu,
In sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Proper of the season}
O Christ, the world's Creator bright,
Who didst mankind from sin redeem,
Light from the Father's glorious light,
True God of God, in bliss supreme.

Thy love compelled thee to assume
A mortal body, man to save;
Reversing the old Adam's doom;
Our ransom the new Adam gave.

That love which gloriously framed all
The earth, the stars, and wondrous sea
Took pity on our parents' fall,
Broke all our bonds and set us free.

O Saviour, let thy potent love
Flow ever from thy bounteous heart;
To nations that pure fount above
The grace of pardon will impart.

His heart for this was opened wide,
And wounded by the soldier's spear,
That freely from his sacred side
Might flow the streams our souls to clear.

Glory to Father and to Son,
And to the Holy Ghost the same,
To whom all power, when time is done,
And endless rule, in endless fame.
Amen.

Reading 5
Among the wonderful developments of sacred teaching and piety, by which the plans of the divine Wisdom are daily made clear to the Church, hardly any is more manifest than the triumphant progress made by the devotion of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Very often indeed, during the course of past ages, Fathers, Doctors, and Saints have celebrated our Redeemer's love: and they have said, that the wound opened in the side of Christ was the hidden fountain of all graces. Moreover, from the Middle Ages onward, when the faithful began to show a more tender piety towards the most sacred Humanity of the Saviour, contemplative souls became accustomed to penetrate through that wound almost to the very Heart itself, wounded for the love of men. And from that time, this form of contemplation became so familiar to all persons of saintly life, that there was no country or religious order in which, during this period, witnesses to it were not to be found.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him,
* Yea, unto all such as call upon him faithfully.
V. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, long-suffering and of great goodness.
R. Yea, unto all such as call upon him faithfully.

Reading 6
To none, indeed, did the monastic order yield in propating this devotion; and outstanding at that period are the nuns of Helfta, Gertrude and Mechtilde, from whose lives and writings it is very plain with what great love they burned for the divine Heart. Finally, during recent centuries, and most especially at that period when heretics, in the name of a false piety, strove to discourage Christians from receiving the most Holy Eucharist, the veneration of the most Sacred Heart began to be openly practised, principally through the exertions of St. John Eudes, who is by no means unworthily called the founder of the liturgical worship of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. God has graced us in his beloved son
* In whom we have redemption through his blood, remission of sins.
V. Grant to us O Lord the illumination of the eyes of our heart in the knowledge of him.

Reading 7
But in order to establish fully and entirely the worship of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus, and to spread the same throughout the whole world, God himself chose as his instrument a most humble virgin from the order of the Visitation, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, who even in her earliest years already had a burning love for the Sacrament of the Eucharist, and to whom Christ the Lord had very many times appeared, and was pleased to make known the riches and the desires of his divine Heart. The most famous of these apparitions was that in which Jesus revealed himself to her in prayer before the blessed Sacrament, shewed her his most Sacred Heart, and, complaining that in return for his unbounded love, he met with nothing but outrages and ingratitude from mankind, he ordered her to concern herself with the establishment of a new feast, on the Friday after the Octave of Corpus Christi, on which his Heart should be venerated with due honour, and that the insults offered him by sinners in the Sacrament of love should be expiated by worthy satisfaction.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent;
* Yea, thou hast revealed them unto babes.

At length, in the year 1765, the Supreme Pontiff Clement XIII approved the Mass and Office in honour of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus; and Pius IX extended the feast to the universal Church. From then on the worship of the most Sacred Heart, like an overflowing river, washing away all obstacles, hath poured itself forth over all the earth, and, at the dawn of the new century, Leo XIII, having proclaimed a jubilee, decided to dedicate the whole human race to the most Sacred Heart. This consecration was actually carried out with solemn rites in all the churches of the Catholic world, and brought about a great increase of this devotion, leading not only nations but even private families to it, who in countless numbers dedicated themselves to the Divine Heart, and submitted themselves to its royal sway. Lastly, the Sovereign Pontiff Pius XI, in order that, by its solemnity, the feast might answer more fully to the greatly widespread devotion of the Christian people, raised the feast of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus to the rite of a double of the first class, with an octave; and moreover, that the violated rights of Christ, the supreme King and most loving Lord, might be repaired, and that the sins of the nations might be bewailed, he ordered that annually, on that same feast-day, there should be recited an expiatory form of prayer in all the churches of the Christian world.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. All nations whom thou hast made shall come,
* And they shall worship thee, O Lord.
V. Yea, they shall glorify thy Name, for thou art great, and doest wondrous things.
R. And they shall worship thee, O Lord.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

2:13 For the poles of the earth are the Lord’s, * and upon them he hath set the world.
2:14 He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness, * because no man shall prevail by his own strength.
2:15 The adversaries of the Lord shall fear him: * and upon them shall he thunder in the heavens.
2:16 The Lord shall judge the ends of the earth, and he shall give empire to his king, * and shall exalt the horn of his Christ.
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. Praise the Lord, and call upon his name: make his works known among the people.
V. Memóriam fecit mirabílium suórum miserátor Dóminus.
R. Escam dedit timéntibus se.
V. The merciful Lord hath instituted a memorial of his wondrous deeds.
R. He hath given meat unto them that fear him.
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.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Joánnem
Joannes 19:31-37
In illo témpore: Judǽi, quóniam parascéve erat, ut non remanérent in cruce córpora sábbato (erat enim magnus dies ille sábbati) rogavérunt Pilátum, ut frangeréntur eórum crura et tolleréntur. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Bonaventúræ Epíscopi
Liber de ligno vitæ, num. 30
Ut de látere Christi dormiéntis in cruce formarétur Ecclésia, et Scriptúra implerétur quæ dicit: Vidébunt in quem transfixérunt, divína est ordinatióne indúltum ut unus mílitum láncea latus illud sacrum aperiéndo perfóderet, quátenus sánguine cum aqua manánte, prétium effunderétur nostræ salútis quod a fonte scílicet Cordis arcáno profúsum, vim daret sacraméntis Ecclésiæ ad vitam grátiæ conferéndam, essétque jam in Christo vivéntibus póculum fontis vivi, saliéntis in vitam ætérnam. Surge ígitur, ánima amíca Christi, vigiláre non cesses, ibi os appóne, ut háurias aquas de fóntibus salvatóris.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Ego si exaltátus fúero a terra
* Omnia traham ad meípsum.
V. Hoc autem dicébat signíficans qua morte esset moritúrus.
R. Omnia traham ad meípsum.

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

From the Holy Gospel according to John
John 19:31-37
At that time: The Jews, because it was the Preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath Day, for that Sabbath Day was an high day, besought Pilate that their legs might broken, and that they might be taken away. And so on.

A Homily by St. Bonaventure the Bishop
Book of the Tree of Life, num. 30
In order that the Church might be taken out of the side of Christ, in his deep sleep on the Cross, and that the Scripture might be fulfilled which saith: They shall look on him whom they pierced: it was divinely ordained that one of the soldiers should pierce his sacred side with a spear, and open it. Then forthwith there came flowing out blood and water, which was the price of our salvation, pouring forth from its mountain-source, in sooth, from the secret places of his Heart, to give power to the Sacraments of the Church, to bestow the life of grace, and to be as a saving drink of living waters, flowing up to life eternal for those who were already quickened in Christ. Arise, then, O soul beloved of Christ. Cease not thy vigilance, place there thy lips, and drink the waters from the fount of salvation.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. If I be lifted up,
* I will draw all men unto me.
V. This he said, signifying what death he should die.
R. I will draw all men unto me.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ille nos benedícat, qui sine fine vivit et regnat. Amen.

De vite mystica, cap. 3
Quia semel vénimus ad Cor Dómini Jesu dulcíssimi, et bonum est nos hic esse, non fácile evellámur ab eo. O quam bonum et jucúndum habitáre in Corde hoc. Bonus thesáurus, pretiósa margaríta Cor tuum, óptime Jesu, quam, fosso agro córporis tui, invenímus. Quis hanc margarítam abíciat? Quin pótius, dabo omnes margarítas, cogitatiónes et affectiónes meas commutábo et comparábo illam mihi, jactans omnem cogitátum meum in Cor boni Jesu, et sine fallácia illud me enútriet.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. In die qua invocávi te, Dómine, dixísti: Noli timére:
* Judicásti causam meam, et liberásti me, Dómine, Deus meus.
V. In die tribulatiónis meæ clamávi ad te, quia exaudísti me.
R. Judicásti causam meam, et liberásti me, Dómine, Deus meus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May His blessing be upon us who doth live and reign for ever. Amen.

Reading 10
Of the mystical vine, Chap. 3
Because we are now come to the sweet Heart of Jesus, and because it is good for us to be here, let us not too soon turn away therefrom. O how good and joyful a thing it is to dwell in this Heart. What a good treasure, what a precious pearl, is thy Heart, O most excellent Jesu, which we have found hidden in the pit which hath been dug in this field, namely, in thy body. Who would cast away such a pearl? Nay, rather, for this same I would give all my pearls. I will sell all my thoughts and affections, and buy the same for myself, turning all my thoughts to the Heart of the good Jesus, and without fail it will support me.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O Lord, in the day that I called upon thee, Thou saidst: Fear not.
* Thou hast pleaded my cause, and hast redeemed me, O Lord my God.
V. In the day of my trouble I called upon thee, for Thou hast heard me.
R. Thou hast pleaded my cause, and hast redeemed me, O Lord my God.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum. Amen.

Lectio 11
Hoc ígitur tuo et meo Corde, dulcíssime Jesu, invénto, orábo te Deum meum: admítte in sacrárium exauditiónis preces meas: immo me totum trahe in Cor tuum. Ad hoc enim perforátum est latus tuum, ut nobis páteat intróitus. Ad hoc vulnerátum est Cor tuum, ut in illo ab exterióribus turbatiónibus absolúti habitáre possímus. Nihilóminus et proptérea vulnerátum est, ut per vulnus visíbile, vulnus amóris invisíbile videámus. Quómodo hic ardor mélius posset osténdi, nisi quod non solum corpus, verum étiam ipsum Cor láncea vulnerári permísit? Carnále ergo vulnus, vulnus spirituále osténdit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Sicut diléxit me pater et ego diléxi vos:
* Manéte in dilectióne mea.
V. Si præcépta mea servavéritis, manébitis in dilectióne mea, † sicut et ego Patris mei præcépta servávi, et máneo in ejus dilectióne.
R. Manéte in dilectióne mea.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 11
Therefore, o most sweet Jesu, finding this Heart that is thine and mine, I will pray to thee, my God: admit my prayers into the shrine of hearkening: and draw me even more altogether into thy Heart. For to this end was thy side pierced, that an entry might be open unto us. To this end was thy Heart wounded, that in it we might be able to dwell secure from alarms from without. And it was wounded none the less on this account that, because of the visible wound, we may perceive the wound of love which is invisible. How could this fire of love better shine forth than for him to permit that not only his body, but that even his Heart, should be wounded with the spear?
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you.
* Abide in my love.
V. If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; as I also have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
R. Abide in my love.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Quis illud Cor tam vulnerátum non díligat? quis tam amántem non rédamet? quis tam castum non amplectátur?

Reading 12
Who would not embrace one so chaste? Wherefore let us who are in the flesh love in return, as much as we can, him who so loveth, embrace our wounded one, whose hands and feet, side and Heart, have been pierced by wicked husbandmen; and let us pray that he may deign to bind our hearts, still hard and impenitent, with the chain of his love, and wound them with the dart thereof.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Be ye therefore followers of God;
* And walk ye therefore in love.
V. For Christ also hath loved us and hath given himself for us.
R. And walk ye therefore in love.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And walk ye therefore in love.

Sequéntia +︎ sancti Evangélii secúndum Joánnem.
Joannes 19:31-37
R. Glória tibi, Dómine.
In illo témpore: Judǽi - quóniam Parascéve erat, - ut non remanérent in cruce córpora sábbato - erat enim magnus dies ille sábbati, - rogavérunt Pilátum, ut frangeréntur eórum crura, et tolleréntur. Venérunt ergo mílites: et primi quidem fregérunt crura et alteríus, qui crucifíxus est cum eo. Ad Jesum autem cum veníssent, ut vidérunt eum jam mórtuum, non fregérunt ejus crura, sed unus mílitum láncea latus ejus apéruit, et contínuo exívit sanguis et aqua. Et qui vidit, testimónium perhíbuit: et verum est testimónium ejus. Et ille scit quia vera dicit, ut et vos credátis. Facta sunt enim hæc ut Scriptúra implerétur: Os non comminuétis ex eo. Et íterum alia Scriptúra dicit: Vidébunt in quem transfixérunt.
R. Amen

Te decet laus, te decet hymnus: tibi glória Deo Patri, et Fílio, cum Spíritu Sancto in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Continuation +︎ of the Holy Gospel according to John
John 19:31-37.
R. Glory be to you, O Lord.
At that time, the Jews, since it was the Preparation Day, in order that the bodies might not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath - for that Sabbath was a solemn day, - besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other, who had been crucified with Him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs; but one of the soldiers opened His side with a lance, and immediately there came out blood and water. And he who saw it has borne witness, and his witness is true; and he knows that he tells the truth, that you also may believe. For these things came to pass that the Scripture might be fulfilled, Not a bone of Him shall you break. And again another Scripture says, They shall look upon Him Whom they have pierced.
R. Amen

Thou art worthy of praise, thou art worthy of hymns, to Thee be glory: to God the Father and the Son with the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.
