Hymnus
Médiæ noctis tempus est;
prophética vox ádmonet
dicámus laudes ut Deo
Patri semper ac Fílio,
Sancto quoque Spirítui:
perfécta enim Trínitas
uniúsque substántiæ
laudánda nobis semper est.
Terrórem tempus hoc habet,
quo, cum vastátor ángelus
Ægýpto mortem íntulit,
delévit primogénita.
Hæc iustis hora salus est,
quos tunc ibídem ángelus
ausus puníre non erat,
signum formídans sánguinis.
Ægýptus flebat fórtiter
tantórum diro fúnere;
solus gaudébat Israel
agni protéctus sánguine.
Nos verus Israel sumus:
lætámur in te, Dómine,
hostem spernéntes et malum,
Christi defénsi sánguine.
Dignos nos fac, rex óptime,
futúri regni glória,
ut mereámur láudibus
ætérnis te concínere. Amen.

  Alleluia! alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam:
  O praise him, O praise him!
  Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
Thou rushing wind that art so strong,
Ye clouds that sail in heaven along,
  O praise him, alleluia!
Thou rising morn, in praise rejoice,
Ye lights of evening, find a voice:
  O praise him, O praise him!
  Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
Thou flowing water pure and clear,
Make music for thy Lord to hear:
  Alleluia! alleluia!
Thou fire so masterful and bright,
That givest man both warmth and light:
  O praise him, O praise him!
  Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
And all ye men of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part:
  O sing ye, alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
Praise God and on him cast your care:
  O praise him, O praise him!
  Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Ps 23:1-10
Domini in templum adventus

Christo apertæ sunt portæ cæli propter carnalem eius assumptionem” (S. Irenæus).

Quis ascéndet in montem Dómini aut quis stabit in loco sancto eius?
1Dómini est terra et plenitúdo eius,*
  orbis terrárum et qui hábitant in eo.
2Quia ipse super mária fundávit eum*
  et super flúmina firmávit eum.
3Quis ascéndet in montem Dómini,*
  aut quis stabit in loco sancto eius?
4Innocens mánibus et mundo corde,†
  qui non levávit ad vana ánimam suam,*
  nec iurávit in dolum.
5Hic accípiet benedictiónem a Dómino*
  et iustificatiónem a Deo salutári suo.
6Hæc est generátio quæréntium eum,*
  quæréntium fáciem Dei Iacob.
7Attóllite, portæ, cápita vestra,†
  et elevámini, portæ æternáles,*
  et introíbit rex glóriæ.
8Quis est iste rex glóriæ?*
  Dóminus fortis et potens, Dóminus potens in prœ́lio.
9Attóllite, portæ, cápita vestra,†
  et elevámini, portæ æternáles,*
  et introíbit rex glóriæ.
10Quis est iste rex glóriæ?*
  Dóminus virtútum ipse est rex glóriæ.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Quis ascéndet in montem Dómini aut quis stabit in loco sancto eius?
Psalm 23 (24)
The Lord comes to his temple
Who shall climb the mountain of the Lord? Who shall stand in his holy place?
The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness,
  the world and all who live in it.
He himself founded it upon the seas
  and set it firm over the waters.
Who will climb the mountain of the Lord?
  Who will stand in his holy place?
The one who is innocent of wrongdoing and pure of heart,
  who has not given himself to vanities or sworn falsely.
He will receive the blessing of the Lord
  and be justified by God his saviour.
This is the way of those who seek him,
  seek the face of the God of Jacob.
Gates, raise your heads. Stand up, eternal doors,
  and let the king of glory enter.
Who is the king of glory?
The Lord of might and power.
  The Lord, strong in battle.
Gates, raise your heads. Stand up, eternal doors,
  and let the king of glory enter.
Who is the king of glory?
The Lord of hosts
 – he is the king of glory.
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.
Who shall climb the mountain of the Lord? Who shall stand in his holy place?

7Qui dominátur in virtúte sua in ætérnum,†
  óculi eius super gentes respíciunt;*
  rebélles non exalténtur in semetípsis.
8Benedícite, gentes, Deum nostrum,*

11Induxísti nos in láqueum,*
  posuísti tribulatiónes in dorso nostro.
12Imposuísti hómines super cápita nostra,†
  transívimus per ignem et aquam,*
  et eduxísti nos in refrigérium.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Benedícite, gentes, Deum nostrum, qui pósuit ánimam nostram ad vitam, allelúia.
Psalm 65 (66)
Hymn for a sacrifice of thanksgiving
All peoples, bless our God, who gave life to our souls, alleluia.
Cry out to God, all the earth,
  sing psalms to the glory of his name,
  give him all glory and praise.
Say to God, “How tremendous your works!
  Faced with the greatness of your power
  your enemies dwindle away.
Let all the earth worship you and sing your praises,
  sing psalms to your name.”
Come and see the works of God,
  be awed by what he has done for the children of men.
He turned the sea into dry land,
  and they crossed the waters on foot:
  therefore will we rejoice in him.
In his might he will rule for all time,
  his eyes keep watch on the nations:
  no rebellion will ever succeed.
Bless our God, you nations,
  and let the sound of your praises be heard.
Praise him who brought us to life,
  and saved us from stumbling.
For you have tested us, O Lord,
  you have tried us by fire, as silver is tried.
You led us into the trap,
  heaped tribulations upon us.
You set other men to rule over us –
  but we passed through fire and water,
  and you led us out to our rest.
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.
All peoples, bless our God, who gave life to our souls, alleluia.

Ps 65:13-20
Audíte omnes, qui timétis Deum, quanta fecit ánimæ meæ, allelúia.
13Introíbo in domum tuam in holocáustis;*
  reddam tibi vota mea,
14quæ protulérunt lábia mea,*
  et locútum est os meum in tribulatióne mea.
15Holocáusta medulláta ófferam tibi cum incénso aríetum,*
  ófferam tibi boves cum hircis.
16Veníte, audíte,†
  et narrábo, omnes, qui timétis Deum,*
  quanta fecit ánimæ meæ.
17Ad ipsum ore meo clamávi*
  et exaltávi in lingua mea.
18Iniquitátem si aspéxi in corde meo,*
  non exáudiet Dóminus.
19Proptérea exaudívit Deus,*
  atténdit voci deprecatiónis meæ.
20Benedíctus Deus, qui non amóvit oratiónem meam*
  et misericórdiam suam a me.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Audíte omnes, qui timétis Deum, quanta fecit ánimæ meæ, allelúia.
Psalm 65 (66)
Come and hear, all who fear God. I will tell what he did for my soul, alleluia.
I shall enter your house with burnt-offerings.
  I shall fulfil my vows to you,
the vows that I made with my lips,
  the vows that I uttered in my troubles.
I shall offer you rich burnt-offerings,
  the smoke of the flesh of rams;
  I shall offer you cattle and goats.
Draw near and listen, you who fear the Lord,
  and I will tell all that he has done for me.
I cried out aloud to him,
  and his praise was on my tongue.
If I looked upon sin in the depths of my heart,
  the Lord would not hear me –
but the Lord has listened,
  he has heard the cry of my appeal.
Blessed be God, who has not spurned my prayer,
  who has not kept his mercy from me.
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.
Come and hear, all who fear God. I will tell what he did for my soul, alleluia.

Lectio prior
Incipit liber Ezechiélis prophétæ 1, 3-14. 22-28
Visio gloriæ Domini in terra exsilii
3Factum est verbum Dómini ad Ezechiélem fílium Buzi, sacerdótem, in terra Chaldæórum secus flumen Chobar, et facta est super eum ibi manus Dómini.
  4Et vidi: et ecce ventus túrbinis veniébat ab aquilóne et nubes magna et ignis conglobátus, et splendor in circúitu eius, et de médio eius quasi spécies eléctri, id est de médio ignis; 5et ex médio eius similitúdo quáttuor animálium, et hic aspéctus eórum: similitúdo hóminis erat eis. 6Quáttuor fácies uni et quáttuor pennæ uni; 7pedes eórum pedes recti, et planta pedis eórum quasi planta pedis vítuli, et scintillábant quasi aspéctus æris candéntis. 8Et manus hóminis erant sub pennis eórum in quáttuor pártibus. Fácies autem et pennæ illórum quáttuor: 9iunctæ erant pennæ eórum áltera ad álteram; non revertebántur, cum incéderent, sed unumquódque ante fáciem suam gradiebátur.
  10Similitúdo autem vultus eórum: fácies hóminis et fácies leónis a dextris ipsórum quáttuor, fácies autem bovis a sinístris ipsórum quáttuor et fácies áquilæ ipsórum quáttuor.
  11Et pennæ eórum exténtæ désuper; duæ pennæ singulórum iungebántur et duæ tegébant córpora eórum. 12Et unumquódque coram fácie sua ambulábat: ubi erat ímpetus spíritus, illuc gradiebántur nec revertebántur, cum ambulárent.
  13Et in médio animálium, aspéctus quasi carbónum ignis, ardéntium, quasi aspéctus lampadárum discurréntium in médio animálium; et splendor erat ignis, et de igne fulgur egrédiens. 14Et animália ibant et revertebántur in similitúdinem fúlguris coruscántis.
  22Et similitúdo super cápita animálium firmaménti quasi aspéctus crystálli horríbilis et exténti super cápita eórum désuper. 23Sub firmaménto autem pennæ eórum rectæ áltera ad álteram; unumquódque duábus alis velábat corpus suum.
  24Et audiébam sonum alárum quasi sonum aquárum multárum, quasi sonum Omnipoténtis: cum ambulárent, erat strépitus véhemens ut sonus castrórum; cumque starent, demittebántur pennæ eórum. 25Nam cum fíeret vox supra firmaméntum, quod erat super caput eórum, stabant et submittébant alas suas.
  26Et super firmaméntum, quod erat ímminens cápiti eórum, quasi aspéctus lápidis sapphíri similitúdo throni; et super similitúdinem throni similitúdo quasi aspéctus hóminis désuper. 27Et vidi quasi spéciem eléctri, velut aspéctum ignis per circúitum ab aspéctu lumbórum eius et désuper; et ab aspéctu lumbórum eius usque deórsum vidi quasi spéciem ignis splendéntis in circúitu. 28Velut aspéctus arcus, cum fúerit in nube in die plúviæ: sic erat aspéctus splendóris per gyrum. Hæc vísio similitúdinis glóriæ Dómini.
First Reading
Ezekiel 1:3-14,22-28 ©
A vision in exile of the Lord’s glory
The word of the Lord was addressed to the priest Ezekiel son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldaeans, on the bank of the river Chebar.
  There the hand of the Lord came on me. I looked; a stormy wind blew from the north, a great cloud with light around it, a fire from which flashes of lightning darted, and in the centre a sheen like bronze at the heart of the fire. In the centre I saw what seemed four animals. They looked like this. They were of human form. Each had four faces, each had four wings. Their legs were straight; they had hooves like oxen, glittering like polished brass. Human hands showed under their wings; the faces of all four were turned to the four quarters. Their wings touched each other; they did not turn as they moved; each one went straight forward. As to what they looked like, they had human faces, and all four had a lion’s face to the right, and all four had a bull’s face to the left, and all four had an eagle’s face. Their wings were spread upwards; each had two wings that touched, and two wings that covered his body; and they all went straight forward; they went where the spirit urged them; they did not turn as they moved.
  Between these animals something could be seen like flaming brands or torches, darting between the animals; the fire flashed light, and lightning streaked from the fire. And the creatures ran to and fro like thunderbolts.
  Over the heads of the animals a sort of vault, gleaming like crystal, arched above their heads; under this vault their wings stretched out to one another, and each had two covering his body. I heard the noise of their wings as they moved; it sounded like rushing water, like the voice of Shaddai, a noise like a storm, like the noise of a camp; when they halted, they folded their wings, and there was a noise.
  Above the vault over their heads was something that looked like a sapphire; it was shaped like a throne and high up on this throne was a being that looked like a man. I saw him shine like bronze, and close to and all around him from what seemed his loins upwards was what looked like fire; and from what seemed his loins downwards I saw what looked like fire, and a light all round like a bow in the clouds on rainy days; that is how the surrounding light appeared. It was something that looked like the glory of the Lord.

Lectio altera
Incipit Sermo sancti Augustíni epíscopi De pastóribus (Sermo 46, 1-2: CCL 41, 529-530)
Christiani sumus et præpositi
Spes tota nostra quia in Christo est et quia omnis vera et salúbris glória nostra ipse est, non nunc primum dídicit cáritas vestra. Estis enim in eius grege, qui inténdit et pascit Israel. Sed quóniam sunt pastóres, qui pastórum nómina audíre volunt, pastórum offícium implére nolunt, quid ad eos per Prophétam dícitur, recenseámus. Audíte vos cum intentióne, audiámus nos cum tremóre.
  Et factum est verbum Dómini ad me, dicens: Fili hóminis, prophéta super pastóres Israel et dic ad pastóres Israel. Hanc lectiónem modo, cum legerétur, audívimus; hinc cum vestra sanctitáte áliquid loqui decrévimus. Adiuvábit ipse ut vera dicámus, si non nostra dicámus. Nam si nostra dixérimus, pastóres érimus pascéntes nos, non oves; si autem illíus sunt quæ dícimus, per quémlibet ipse vos pascit. Hæc dicit Dóminus Deus: O pastóres Israel, qui pascunt se solos! Numquid non oves pascunt pastóres? id est, non se pascunt pastóres, sed oves. Hæc prima causa est quare arguántur isti pastóres, quia se ipsos pascunt, non oves. Qui sunt qui se ipsos pascunt? De quibus Apóstolus dicit: Omnes enim sua quærunt, non quæ Iesu Christi.
  Nos enim, quos in loco isto, de quo periculósa rátio rédditur, Dóminus secúndum dignatiónem suam, non secúndum méritum nostrum constítuit, habémus duo quædam plane distinguénda: unum quod christiáni sumus, álterum quod præpósiti sumus. Illud quod christiáni sumus, propter nos est; quod præpósiti sumus, propter vos est. In eo quod christiáni sumus, attendátur utílitas nostra; in eo quod præpósiti, nónnisi vestra.
  Et sunt multi qui christiáni, et non præpósiti, pervéniunt ad Deum, facilióre fortásse itínere et tanto forte expedítius ambulántes, quanto minórem sárcinam portant. Nos autem, excépto quod christiáni sumus, unde ratiónem reddémus Deo de vita nostra, sumus étiam præpósiti, unde ratiónem reddémus Deo de dispensatióne nostra.
Second Reading
St Augustine's sermon On Pastors
We are Christians as well as leaders
You have often learned that all our hope is in Christ and that he is our true glory and our salvation. You are members of the flock of the Good Shepherd, who watches over Israel and nourishes his people. Yet there are shepherds who want to have the title of shepherd without wanting to fulfil a pastor’s duties; let us then recall what God says to his shepherds through the prophet. You must listen attentively; I must listen with fear and trembling.
  The word of the Lord came to me and said: Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel and speak to the shepherds of Israel. We just heard this reading a moment ago, my brothers, and I have decided to speak to you on this passage. The Lord will help me to speak the truth if I do not speak on my own authority. For if I speak on my own authority, I will be a shepherd nourishing myself and not the sheep. However, if my words are the Lord’s, then he is nourishing you no matter who speaks. Thus says the Lord God: Shepherds of Israel, who have been nourishing only themselves! Should not the shepherds nourish the sheep? In other words, true shepherds take care of their sheep, not themselves. This is the principal reason why God condemns those shepherds: they took care of themselves rather than their sheep. Who are they who nourish themselves? They are the shepherds the Apostle described when he said: They all seek what is theirs and not what is Christ’s.
  I must distinguish carefully between two aspects of the role the Lord has given me, a role that demands a rigorous accountability, a role based on the Lord’s greatness rather than on my own merit. The first aspect is that I am a Christian; the second, that I am a leader. I am a Christian for my own sake, whereas I am a leader for your sake; the fact that I am a Christian is to my own advantage, but I am a leader for your advantage.
  Many persons come to God as Christians but not as leaders. Perhaps they travel by an easier road and are less hindered since they bear a lighter burden. In addition to the fact that I am a Christian and must give God an account of my life, I as a leader must give him an account of my stewardship as well.

HymnTe Deum
God, we praise you; Lord, we proclaim you!
You, the Father, the eternal –
all the earth venerates you.
All the angels, all the heavens, every power –
The cherubim, the seraphim –
unceasingly, they cry:
“Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts:
heaven and earth are full of the majesty of your glory!”
The glorious choir of Apostles –
The noble ranks of prophets –
The shining army of martyrs –
all praise you.
Throughout the world your holy Church proclaims you.
– Father of immeasurable majesty,
– True Son, only-begotten, worthy of worship,
– Holy Spirit, our Advocate.
You, Christ:
– You are the king of glory.
– You are the Father’s eternal Son.
– You, to free mankind, did not disdain a Virgin’s womb.
– You defeated the sharp spear of Death, and opened the kingdom of heaven to those who believe in you.
– You sit at God’s right hand, in the glory of the Father.
– You will come, so we believe, as our Judge.
And so we ask of you: give help to your servants, whom you set free at the price of your precious blood.
Number them among your chosen ones in eternal glory.
The final part of the hymn may be omitted:
Bring your people to safety, Lord, and bless those who are your inheritance.
Rule them and lift them high for ever.
Day by day we bless you, Lord: we praise you for ever and for ever.
Of your goodness, Lord, keep us without sin for today.
Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy on us.
Let your pity, Lord, be upon us, as much as we trust in you.
In you, Lord, I trust: let me never be put to shame.

Oremus.
  Réspice nos, rerum ómnium Deus creátor et rector, et, ut tuæ propitiatiónis sentiámus efféctum, toto nos tríbue tibi corde servíre.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum,

Let us pray.
Look upon us, Lord, creator and ruler of the whole world:
  give us grace to serve you with all our heart
  that we may come to know the power of your forgiveness and love.
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.
