Hymnus
Vir celse, forma fúlgida
virtútis, hymnum súscipe,
qui iure dum te prǽdicat,
Dei canit magnália.
Qui sempitérnus Póntifex
stirpem Deo mortálium
revínxit, atque réddidit
paci novo nos fœ́dere,
Te fecit ipse próvidus
sui minístrum múneris,
Patri datúrum glóriam
eiúsque vitam plébibus.
Regális huius cúlminis
adéptus altitúdinem,
verbo fuísti et móribus
doctor, sacérdos, hóstia.
Locátus in cæléstibus,
sanctæ meménto Ecclésiæ,
oves ut omnes páscua
Christi petant felícia.
Sit Trinitáti glória,
quæ sancti honóris múnia
tibi minístro sédulo
dignis corónat gáudiis. Amen.
Hymn
Who are these like stars appearing,
these, before God’s throne who stand?
Each a golden crown is wearing;
who are all this glorious band?
Alleluia! Hark, they sing,
praising loud their heavenly King.
Who are these of dazzling brightness,
clothed in God’s own righteousness?
These, whose robes of purest whiteness,
shall their lustre still possess,
still untouched by time’s rude hand?
Whence came all this glorious band?
These are they who have contended
for their Saviour’s honour long,
wrestling on till life was ended,
following not the sinful throng;
these who well the fight sustained,
triumph through the Lamb have gained.
These are they whose hearts were riven,
sore with woe and anguish tried,
who in prayer full oft have striven
with the God they glorified;
now, their painful conflict o’er,
God has bid them weep no more.
These, the Almighty contemplating,
did as priests before him stand,
soul and body always waiting
day and night at his command:
now in God’s most holy place
blest they stand before his face.

Ps 40:2-14
Infirmi oratio

Unus ex vobis me tradet, qui manducat mecum” (Mc 14, 18).

Sana, Dómine, ánimam meam, quia peccávi tibi.
2Beátus, qui intéllegit de egéno,*
  in die mala liberábit eum Dóminus.
3Dóminus servábit eum et vivificábit eum†
  et beátum fáciet eum in terra*
  et non tradet eum in ánimam inimicórum eius.
4Dóminus opem feret illi super lectum dolóris eius;*
  univérsum stratum eius versábis in infirmitáte eius.
5Ego dixi: «Dómine, miserére mei;*
  sana ánimam meam, quia peccávi tibi».
6Inimíci mei dixérunt mala mihi:*
  «Quando moriétur, et períbit nomen eius?».
7Et si ingrediebátur, ut visitáret, vana loquebátur;†
  cor eius congregábat iniquitátem sibi,*
  egrediebátur foras et detrahébat.
8Simul advérsum me susurrábant omnes inimíci mei;*
  advérsum me cogitábant mala mihi:
«9Malefícium effúsum est in eo;*
  et, qui decúmbit, non adíciet ut resúrgat».
10Sed et homo pacis meæ, in quo sperávi,*
  qui edébat panem meum, levávit contra me calcáneum.
11Tu autem, Dómine, miserére mei*
  et resúscita me, et retríbuam eis.
12In hoc cognóvi quóniam voluísti me,*
  quia non gaudébit inimícus meus super me;
13me autem propter innocéntiam suscepísti*
  et statuísti me in conspéctu tuo in ætérnum.
14Benedíctus Dóminus Deus Israel*
  a sǽculo et usque in sǽculum. Fiat, fiat.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Sana, Dómine, ánimam meam, quia peccávi tibi.
Psalm 40 (41)
Prayer in time of sickness
Lord, heal my soul, for I have sinned against you.
Blessed is he who takes thought for the helpless,
  for the Lord will keep him safe in time of trouble.
The Lord will guard him and give him life.
  He will give him good fortune on the earth,
  and not betray him into the power of his enemies.
The Lord will lend him strength on his bed of pain;
  you will transform all his sickness into health.
I said, “Lord, have mercy, heal my soul,
  for I have sinned against you.”
My enemies spoke against me, saying: “When will he die?
  When will his name perish?”
When one of them came to visit me, he talked of nothing,
  but stored up wickedness in his heart.
  He went out, and told tales against me.
All my enemies whispered together against me,
  imagined the worst:
“A plague has taken hold of him:
  he has lain down and will not rise.”
Even my dearest friend, in whom I put my trust, who had eaten my bread –
  even he trampled me down.
But you, Lord – have mercy on me,
  revive me, and I will pay them back.
This is how I know that I have your favour,
  when my enemy cannot triumph over me,
when you raise me up because of my innocence,
  and put me in your presence for all eternity.
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
  from the beginning to the end of time.
  Amen! Amen!
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, heal my soul, for I have sinned against you.

Ps 45:2-12
Deus refugium et virtus

Vocabunt nomen eius Emmanuel, quod est interpretatum Nobiscum Deus” (Mt 1, 23).

Dóminus virtútum nobíscum, refúgium nobis Deus Iacob.
2Deus est nobis refúgium et virtus,*
  adiutórium in tribulatiónibus invéntus est nimis.
3Proptérea non timébimus, dum turbábitur terra,*
  et transferéntur montes in cor maris.
4Fremant et intuméscant aquæ eius,*
  conturbéntur montes in elatióne eius.
5Flúminis rivi lætíficant civitátem Dei,*
  sancta tabernácula Altíssimi.
6Deus in médio eius, non commovébitur;*
  adiuvábit eam Deus mane dilúculo.
7Fremuérunt gentes, commóta sunt regna;*
  dedit vocem suam, liquefácta est terra.
8Dóminus virtútum nobíscum,*
  refúgium nobis Deus Iacob.
9Veníte et vidéte ópera Dómini,*
  quæ pósuit prodígia super terram.
Auferet bella usque ad finem terræ,†
  10arcum cónteret et confrínget arma*
  et scuta combúret igne.
11Vacáte et vidéte quóniam ego sum Deus:*
  exaltábor in géntibus et exaltábor in terra.
12Dóminus virtútum nobíscum,*
  refúgium nobis Deus Iacob.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Dóminus virtútum nobíscum, refúgium nobis Deus Iacob.
Psalm 45 (46)
God, our refuge and our strength
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
The Lord is our refuge and our strength,
  a true help in our troubles.
Therefore we do not fear,
  even when the earth is shaken and mountains fall into the depths of the sea,
the waves roar and foam
  and rise up to shake the mountains.
The streams of the river give joy to the city of God,
  the holy dwelling-place of the Most High.
God is within it, it will not be shaken;
  God will give help as the day dawns.
The nations are in turmoil and kingdoms totter:
  at the sound of his voice, the earth flows like water.
The Lord of strength is with us,
  the God of Jacob is our refuge.
Come and see the works of the Lord,
  who has done wonders on the earth.
He puts an end to wars over all the world:
  he tramples the bow, shatters weapons, and burns the shields with fire.
Stop and see that I am God:
  I will be exalted among the nations, exalted on the earth.
The Lord of strength is with us,
  the God of Jacob is our refuge.
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 of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold.

Lectio brevis1 Petr 5:1-4
Senióres, qui in vobis sunt, óbsecro, consénior et testis Christi passiónum, qui et eius, quæ in futúro revelánda est, glóriæ communicátor: Páscite, qui est in vobis, gregem Dei, providéntes non coácto sed spontánee secúndum Deum, neque turpis lucri grátia sed voluntárie, neque ut dominántes in cleris sed formæ facti gregis. Et cum apparúerit Princeps pastórum, percipiétis immarcescíbilem glóriæ corónam.
Short Reading1 Peter 5:1-4 ©
Now I have something to tell your elders: I am an elder myself, and a witness to the sufferings of Christ, and with you I have a share in the glory that is to be revealed. Be the shepherds of the flock of God that is entrusted to you: watch over it, not simply as a duty but gladly, because God wants it; not for sordid money, but because you are eager to do it. Never be a dictator over any group that is put in your charge, but be an example that the whole flock can follow. When the chief shepherd appears, you will be given the crown of unfading glory.

Canticum
Exsultatio animæ in Domino
Quod uni ex mínimis meis fecístis, mihi fecístis, dicit Dóminus.
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.
Quod uni ex mínimis meis fecístis, mihi fecístis, dicit Dóminus.

My soul rejoices in the Lord
The Lord says, ‘What you did to one of the least of these my brethren, you did to me.’
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.
The Lord says, ‘What you did to one of the least of these my brethren, you did to me.’

Prayers and intercessions
Let us pray to Christ, the high priest, who was appointed to represent men in their relations with God.
Lord, save your people.
Lord Jesus, in times past you have lighted the way for your people through wise and holy leaders;
  may Christians always enjoy this sign of your loving kindness.
Lord, save your people.
You forgave the sins of your people when holy pastors prayed;
  continually cleanse your Church through their powerful intercession.
Lord, save your people.
In the presence of their brothers, you anointed your holy ones and poured on them your Spirit;
  fill with your Holy Spirit all the leaders of your people.
Lord, save your people.
Nothing could ever separate the holy pastors from your love;
  do not lose even one of those whom you redeemed by your passion.
Lord, save your people.
Through the pastors of your Church you give your sheep eternal life, and no one can steal them from you;
  save the faithful departed, for whom you laid down your life.
Lord, save your people.

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 ad salútem páuperum et cleri institutiónem beátum Vincéntium, presbýterum, virtútibus apostólicis imbuísti, præsta, quǽsumus, ut, eódem spíritu fervéntes, et amémus quod amávit et quod dócuit operémur.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum,
qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus,
per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Father, you endowed Saint Vincent de Paul with the spirit of an apostle
  to give himself to the service of the poor and to the training of priests.
Give us a share of the same spirit
  that we may love what he loved
  and do as he taught us.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
  who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
  one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

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