INTRODUCTION
O God, come to our aid.

  world without end.

Hymnus
Iesu, quadragenáriæ
dicátor abstinéntiæ,
qui ob salútem méntium
præcéperas ieiúnium,
Adésto nunc Ecclésiæ,
adésto pæniténtiæ,
qua supplicámus cérnui
peccáta nostra dílui.
Tu retroácta crímina
tua remítte grátia
et a futúris ádhibe
custódiam mitíssime,
Ut, expiáti ánnuis
compunctiónis áctibus,
tendámus ad paschália
digne colénda gáudia.
Te rerum univérsitas,
clemens, adóret, Trínitas,
et nos novi per véniam
novum canámus cánticum. Amen.
Hymn
Sole hope of all the world and Lord,
Bestower of the great reward,
Receive the prayers thy servants raise
Mixed with meet psalms and chants of praise.
And though our conscience doth proclaim
Our deep transgressions and our shame,
Cleanse us, O God, we humbly plead,
From sins of thought and word and deed.
Our sins remember thou no more;
Forgive: thou art of mighty pow’r:
So take upon thee, Lord, our care
That pure in heart we make our prayer.
Therefore accept, O Lord, this tide
Of fast which thou hast sanctified,
That we may reach by mystic ways
The sacraments of Easter days.

Ps 124:1-5
Dominus custos populi sui

Pax super Israel Dei” (Gal 6, 16).

Dóminus in circúitu pópuli sui.
1Qui confídunt in Dómino sicut mons Sion:*
  non commovébitur, in ætérnum manet.
2Ierúsalem, montes in circúitu eius,†
  et Dóminus in circúitu pópuli sui*
  ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
3Quia non requiéscet virga iniquitátis super sortem iustórum,*
  ut non exténdant iusti ad iniquitátem manus suas.
4Bénefac, Dómine, bonis*
  et rectis corde.
5Declinántes autem per vias pravas†
  addúcet Dóminus cum operántibus iniquitátem.*
  Pax super Israel!
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Dóminus in circúitu pópuli sui.
Psalm 124 (125)
The Lord guards his people
The Lord surrounds his people.
Those who trust in the Lord are like the mountain of Zion:
  it cannot be shaken, it will stand firm for ever.
Jerusalem – the mountains stand guard over it,
  and the Lord stands guard over his people,
  both now and for ever.
The sceptre of the wicked shall not rest
  upon the inheritance of the just;
lest the just themselves stretch out their hands
  and turn to wickedness.
Be good, O Lord, to the good
  and the upright of heart.
As for those who turn away to crooked paths,
  the Lord shall treat them like the doers of evil.
Peace be on Israel!
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.
The Lord surrounds his people.

Ps 130:1-3
Quasi parvuli fiducia in Domino collocata

Discite a me, quia mitis sum et humilis corde” (Mt 11, 29).

Nisi efficiámini sicut párvuli, non intrábitis in regnum cælórum.
1Dómine, non est exaltátum cor meum,*
  neque eláti sunt óculi mei;
neque ambulávi in magnis,*
  neque in mirabílibus super me.
2Vere pacátam et quiétam*
  feci ánimam meam;
sicut ablactátus in sinu matris suæ,*
  sicut ablactátus, ita in me est ánima mea.
3Speret Israel in Dómino*
  ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Nisi efficiámini sicut párvuli, non intrábitis in regnum cælórum.
Psalm 130 (131)
Childlike trust in God
Unless you become like little children you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Lord, I do not puff myself up or stare about,
  or walk among the great or seek wonders beyond me.
Truly calm and quiet I have made my spirit:
  quiet as a weaned child in its mother’s arms –
  like an infant is my soul.
Let Israel hope in the Lord, now and for all time.
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.
Unless you become like little children you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

CanticleApocalypse 4,5
The song of the redeemed
Lord, you made us a kingdom and priests to serve our God.
You are worthy, our Lord and our God,
  to receive glory and honour and power;
for you made all things,
  and it is by your will that they exist and were created.
You are worthy, Lord,
  to receive the book and open its seals,
for you were killed,
  and with your blood you have ransomed people
  from every tribe and language and people and nation,
and made them rulers and priests for God;
  and they will rule over the earth.
The Lamb is worthy, who was killed,
  to receive power and riches and wisdom,
  strength and honour, glory and blessing.
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.
Lord, you made us a kingdom and priests to serve our God.

Lectio brevisIac 2:14,17,18
Quid próderit, fratres mei, si fidem quis dicat se habére, ópera autem non hábeat? Numquid póterit fides salváre eum? Fides, si non hábeat ópera, mórtua est in semetípsa. Osténde mihi fidem tuam sine opéribus, et ego tibi osténdam ex opéribus meis fidem.
Short Reading
James 2:14,17,18 ©
Take the case, my brothers, of someone who has never done a single good act but claims that he has faith. Will that faith save him? Faith is like that: if good works do not go with it, it is quite dead. I will prove to you that I have faith by showing you my good deeds – now you prove to me that you have faith without any good deeds to show.

Responsorium breve
℣. Ego dixi: Dómine,* Miserére mei. Ego.

Canticum
Exsultatio animæ in Domino
Sic et Pater meus cæléstis fáciet vobis, si non remiséritis unusquísque fratri suo de córdibus vestris.
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 sǽcula.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Sic et Pater meus cæléstis fáciet vobis, si non remiséritis unusquísque fratri suo de córdibus vestris.
CanticleMagnificat
My soul rejoices in the Lord
My heavenly Father will deal the same way with you if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.
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.
My heavenly Father will deal the same way with you if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.

Cleanse your Church from every stain of sin;

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.

Grátia tua ne nos, quǽsumus, Dómine, derelínquat, quæ et sacræ nos déditos fáciat servitúti, et tuam nobis opem semper acquírat.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum,
qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus,
per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Do not withdraw your grace from us, Lord:
  by it alone we can give ourselves wholly to your service
  and obtain your help in our every need.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.

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
