Hymnus
Imménse cæli cónditor,
qui, mixta ne confúnderent,
aquæ fluénta dívidens,
cælum dedísti límitem,
Firmans locum cæléstibus
simúlque terræ rívulis,
ut unda flammas témperet,
terræ solum ne díssipet:
Infúnde nunc, piíssime,
donum perénnis grátiæ,
fraudis novæ ne cásibus
nos error átterat vetus.
Lucem fides invéniat,
sic lúminis iubar ferat;
hæc vana cuncta térreat,
hanc falsa nulla cómprimant.
Præsta, Pater piíssime,
Patríque compar Unice,
cum Spíritu Paráclito
regnans per omne sǽculum. Amen.
Hymn
Come, praise the Lord, the Almighty, the King of all nations!
Tell forth his fame, O ye peoples, with loud acclamations!
His love is sure;
Faithful his word shall endure,
Steadfast through all generations!
Praise to the Father most gracious, the Lord of creation!
Praise to his Son, the Redeemer who wrought our salvation!
O heav’nly Dove,
Praise to thee, fruit of their love,
Giver of all consolation.

Psalmus 122:1-5
Dominus fiducia populi
Duo cæci ... clamaverunt: «Domine, miserere nostri, Fili David»” (Mt 20, 30).
Oculi nostri semper ad Dóminum, donec misereátur nostri.
1Ad te levávi óculos meos,*
  qui hábitas in cælis.
2Ecce sicut óculi servórum ad manus dominórum suórum,*
  sicut óculi ancíllæ ad manus dóminæ suæ,
ita óculi nostri ad Dóminum Deum nostrum,*
  donec misereátur nostri.
3Miserére nostri, Dómine, miserére nostri,*
  quia multum repléti sumus despectióne;
4quia multum repléta est ánima nostra*
  derisióne abundántium et despectióne superbórum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Oculi nostri semper ad Dóminum, donec misereátur nostri.
Psalm 122 (123)
The Lord guards his people
Our eyes are turned to the Lord; we look for his mercy.
To you I lift up my eyes,
  to you who dwell in the heavens.
Like the eyes of a servant watching his master,
  like the eyes of a maid on her mistress’s hands,
  so we keep our eyes on the Lord our God,
  as we wait for his kindness.
Take pity on us, Lord, take pity:
  we have had our fill of contempt.
Our souls have had their fill
  of the laughter of the rich,
  of the contempt of the proud.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
Our eyes are turned to the Lord; we look for his mercy.

Psalmus 123:1-8
Adiutorium nostrum in nomine Domini
Dixit Dominus Paulo: «Noli timere ... quia ego sum tecum»” (Act 18, 9-10).
Adiutórium nostrum in nómine Dómini, qui fecit cælum et terram.
1Nisi quia Dóminus erat in nobis, dicat nunc Israel,†
  2nisi quia Dóminus erat in nobis,*
  cum exsúrgerent hómines in nos:
3forte vivos deglutíssent nos,*
  cum irascerétur furor eórum in nos.
4Fórsitan aqua absorbuísset nos,†
  torrens pertransísset ánimam nostram*
  5fórsitan pertransíssent ánimam nostram aquæ intumescéntes.
6Benedíctus Dóminus;*
  qui non dedit nos in direptiónem déntibus eórum.
7Anima nostra sicut passer erépta est*
  de láqueo venántium:
láqueus contrítus est,*
  et nos erépti sumus.
8Adiutórium nostrum in nómine Dómini,*
  qui fecit cælum et terram.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Adiutórium nostrum in nómine Dómini, qui fecit cælum et terram.
Psalm 123 (124)
Our help is in the name of the Lord
Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
If the Lord had not been with us
  (so let Israel sing),
If the Lord had not been with us
  when men rose up against us,
they might have skinned us alive,
  such was their anger.
The waters could have drowned us,
  the torrent poured over us,
  the foaming waters poured over us.
Blessed be the Lord, who saved us
  from being torn to pieces by their teeth.
We have escaped, like a bird
  from the snare of the fowler.
The snare was broken,
  and we escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
  who made heaven and earth.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

CanticleEphesians 1
God the Saviour
God chose us in his Son and made us his adopted sons.
Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
  who has blessed us, in Christ,
  with every spiritual blessing in heaven.
In love, he chose us before the creation of the world,
  to be holy and spotless in his sight.
He predestined us to be his adopted children through Jesus Christ,
  simply because it pleased him to do so.
This he did for the praise of the glory of his grace,
  of his free gift to us in his Beloved,
in whose blood we have gained redemption,
  and the forgiveness of our sins.
This he did according to the riches of his grace,
  which he gave us in abundance,
with all wisdom and discernment,
  revealing to us the mysteries of his will,
  because it pleased him to do so.
In this action he has planned, in the fulfilment of time,
  to bring all things together in Christ,
  from the heavens and from the earth.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
God chose us in his Son and made us his adopted sons.

Lectio brevisJames 4:11-12
Nolíte detráhere altérutrum, fratres; qui détrahit fratri aut qui iúdicat fratrem suum, détrahit legi et iúdicat legem; si autem iúdicas legem, non es factor legis sed iudex. Unus est legislátor et iudex, qui potest salváre et pérdere; tu autem quis es, qui iúdicas próximum?
Short ReadingJames 4:11-12 ©
Brothers, do not slander one another. Anyone who slanders a brother, or condemns him, is speaking against the Law and condemning the Law. But if you condemn the Law, you have stopped keeping it and become a judge over it. There is only one lawgiver and he is the only judge and has the power to acquit or to sentence. Who are you to give a verdict on your neighbour?

Responsorium breve
℣. Sana ánimam meam,* Quia peccávi tibi. Sana.
℟. Ego dixi: Dómine, miserére mei.* Quia peccávi tibi. Glória Patri. Sana.
Short Responsory
Heal my soul, for I have sinned against you.
Heal my soul, for I have sinned against you.
I said: ‘Lord, have mercy on me.’
Heal my soul, for I have sinned against you.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
Heal my soul, for I have sinned against you.

Canticum
Exsultatio animæ in Domino
Iuste et pie vivámus, exspectántes beátam spem et advéntum Dómini.
Magníficat*
  ánima mea Dóminum,
et exsultávit spíritus meus*
  in Deo salvatóre meo,
quia respéxit humilitátem ancíllæ suæ.*
  Ecce enim ex hoc beátam me dicent omnes generatiónes,
quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est,*
  et sanctum nomen eius,
et misericórdia eius in progénies et progénies*
  timéntibus eum.
Fecit poténtiam in bráchio suo,*
  dispérsit supérbos mente cordis sui;
depósuit poténtes de sede*
  et exaltávit húmiles;
esuriéntes implévit bonis*
  et dívites dimísit inánes.
Suscépit Israel púerum suum,*
  recordátus misericórdiæ,
sicut locútus est ad patres nostros,*
  Abraham et sémini eius in sæcula.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Iuste et pie vivámus, exspectántes beátam spem et advéntum Dómini.

My soul rejoices in the Lord
Let us lead holy lives while we await in hope the coming of the Lord.
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
  and my spirit rejoices in God, my salvation.
For he has shown me such favour –
  me, his lowly handmaiden.
Now all generations will call me blessed,
  because the mighty one has done great things for me.
His name is holy,
  his mercy lasts for generation after generation
  for those who revere him.
He has put forth his strength:
  he has scattered the proud and conceited,
  torn princes from their thrones;
  but lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things;
  the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel,
  he has remembered his mercy as he promised to our fathers,
  to Abraham and his children for ever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
Let us lead holy lives while we await in hope the coming of the Lord.

Adésto, Dómine, órphanis, víduis et ómnibus derelíctis,

Defúnctos fratres in cæléstem civitátem benígnus accípias,
— in qua cum Patre et Spíritu Sancto eris ómnia in ómnibus.

Pater noster, qui es in cælis:
sanctificétur nomen tuum;
advéniat regnum tuum;
fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidiánum da nobis hódie;
et dimítte nobis débita nostra,
sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris;
et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem;
sed líbera nos a malo.
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.

Deus, qui beátos Timótheum et Titum apostólicis virtútibus decorásti, utriúsque intercessióne concéde, ut, iuste et pie vivéntes in hoc sǽculo, ad cæléstem mereámur pátriam perveníre. Per Dóminum.
Almighty God,
you endowed Saint Timothy and Saint Titus with power to preach your word.
Grant that, living a life of integrity and holiness in this world,
  we may, through their prayers, come to our true home in heaven.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Dóminus nos benedícat, et ab omni malo deféndat, et ad vitam perdúcat ætérnam.
The Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.

AMEN
