Hymnus
Veni, creátor Spíritus,
mentes tuórum vísita,
imple supérna grátia,
quæ tu creásti, péctora.
Qui díceris Paráclitus,
donum Dei altíssimi,
fons vivus, ignis, cáritas
et spiritális únctio.
Tu septifórmis múnere,
dextræ Dei tu dígitus,
tu rite promíssum Patris
sermóne ditans gúttura.
Accénde lumen sénsibus,
infúnde amórem córdibus,
infírma nostri córporis,
virtúte firmans pérpeti.
Hostem repéllas lóngius
pacémque dones prótinus;
ductóre sic te prǽvio
vitémus omne nóxium.
Per te sciámus da Patrem
noscámus atque Fílium,
te utriúsque Spíritum
credámus omni témpore.
Amen.
Hymn
Come, Holy Ghost, Creator, come
from thy bright heav’nly throne.
Come, take possession of our souls
and make them all thine own.
Thou who art called the Paraclete,
blest gift of God above,
the living spring, the living fire,
sweet unction and true love.
Thou who art sev’nfold in thy grace,
finger of God’s right hand;
his promise, teaching little ones
to speak and understand.
O guide our minds with thy blest light,
with love our hearts in-flame;
and with thy strength, which ne’er decays
confirm our mortal frame.
Far from us drive our deadly foe,
true peace unto us bring;
and through all perils lead us safe
beneath thy sacred wing.
Through thee may we the Father know,
through thee th’eternal Son,
and thee the Spirit of them both,
thrice-blessèd Three in One.

Ps 112:1-9
Laudabile nomen Domini

Deposuit potentes de sede et exaltavit humiles” (Lc 1, 52).

3A solis ortu usque ad occásum*
  laudábile nomen Dómini.
4Excélsus super omnes gentes Dóminus,*
  super cælos glória eius.
5Quis sicut Dóminus Deus noster, qui in altis hábitat*
  6et se inclínat, ut respíciat in cælum et in terram?
7Súscitans de terra ínopem,*
  de stércore érigens páuperem,
8ut cóllocet eum cum princípibus,*
  cum princípibus pópuli sui.
9Qui habitáre facit stérilem in domo,*
  matrem filiórum lætántem.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.

Psalm 112 (113)
Praise of the Lord's name

The Lord God is high above the heavens; and from the dust he lifts up the lowly, alleluia.
Praise, servants of the Lord,
  praise the name of the Lord.
Let the Lord’s name be blessed,
  now and for ever.
From the sun’s rising to its setting,
  the Lord’s name is to be praised.
The Lord is high over all peoples,
  his glory is above the heavens.
Who is like the Lord our God, who lives on high,
  who bends down to watch over heaven and earth?
He raises the weak from the ground,
  the poor from the dunghill,
raises them among the princes,
  the princes of his people.
He gives the barren woman a household,
  makes her the happy mother of children.
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 God is high above the heavens; and from the dust he lifts up the lowly, alleluia.

Ps 115:10-19
Gratiarum actio in templo

Per ipsum (Christum) offeramus hostiam laudis semper Deo” (Hebr 13, 15).

Redemptiónem misit Dóminus pópulo suo, allelúia.
10Crédidi, étiam cum locútus sum:*
  «Ego humiliátus sum nimis».
11Ego dixi in trepidatióne mea:*

  pro ómnibus, quæ retríbuit mihi?
13Cálicem salutáris accípiam*
  et nomen Dómini invocábo.
14Vota mea Dómino reddam*
  coram omni pópulo eius.
15Pretiósa in conspéctu Dómini*
  mors sanctórum eius.
16O Dómine, ego servus tuus,*
  ego servus tuus et fílius ancíllæ tuæ.
Dirupísti víncula mea:†
  17tibi sacrificábo hóstiam laudis*
  et nomen Dómini invocábo.
18Vota mea Dómino reddam*
  coram omni pópulo eius,
19in átriis domus Dómini,*

Psalm 115 (116B)
Thanksgiving in the Temple

You have loosened my bonds, Lord: a sacrifice of praise I will make to you, alleluia.
Still I trusted, even when I said
  “I am greatly afflicted,”
when I said in my terror,
  “all men are liars.”
How shall I repay the Lord
  for all he has done for me?
I will take up the cup of salvation
  and call on the name of the Lord.
I will fulfil my vows to the Lord
  before all his people.
Precious in the sight of the Lord
  is the death of his faithful.
O Lord, I am your servant,
  your maidservant’s son.
You have torn apart my chains:
  I will make you a sacrifice of praise,
  I will call on the name of the Lord.
I will fulfil my vows to the Lord
  before all his people,
in the courts of the house of the Lord,
  within your walls, Jerusalem.
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.
You have loosened my bonds, Lord: a sacrifice of praise I will make to you, alleluia.

CanticumPhil2:6-11

De Christo, servo Dei

Fílius Dei dídicit ex iis quæ passus est obœdiéntiam et factus est ómnibus obtemperántibus sibi causa salútis ætérnæ, allelúia.
6Christus Iesus, cum in forma Dei esset,*
  non rapínam arbitrátus est esse se æquálem Deo,
7sed semetípsum exinanívit
  formam servi accípiens,†
  in similitúdinem hóminum factus;*
  et hábitu invéntus ut homo,
8humiliávit semetípsum†
  factus obœ́diens usque ad mortem,*
  mortem autem crucis.
9Propter quod et Deus illum exaltávit†
  et donávit illi nomen,*
  quod est super omne nomen,
10ut in nómine Iesu omne genu flectátur*
  cæléstium et terréstrium et infernórum
11et omnis lingua confiteátur:*
  «Dóminus Iesus Christus!»,
  in glóriam Dei Patris.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.

CanticlePhilippians 2

Christ, God's servant

The Son of God learned to obey through suffering, and he became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him. Alleluia.
Jesus Christ, although he shared God’s nature,
  did not try to cling to his equality with God;
but emptied himself, took on the form of a slave,
  and became like a man:
not in appearance only,
  for he humbled himself by accepting death,
  even death on a cross.
For this, God has raised him high,
  and given him the name that is above every name,
so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bend,
  in heaven, on earth, and under the earth,
and every tongue will proclaim
  “Jesus Christ is Lord,”
  to the glory of God the Father.
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 Son of God learned to obey through suffering, and he became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him. Alleluia.

Lectio brevis1 Petr 2:9-10
Vos genus eléctum, regále sacerdótium, gens sancta, pópulus in acquisitiónem, ut virtútes annuntiétis eius, qui de ténebris vos vocávit in admirábile lumen suum; qui aliquándo non pópulus, nunc autem pópulus Dei; qui non consecúti misericórdiam nunc autem misericórdiam consecúti.
Short Reading1 Peter 2:9-10 ©
You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a people set apart to sing the praises of God who called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people at all and now you are the People of God; once you were outside the mercy and now you have been given mercy.

Exsultatio animæ in Domino

Pater sancte, serva eos in nómine tuo, quod dedísti mihi, ut sint unum sicut nos, allelúia.

  ánima mea Dóminum,
et exsultávit spíritus meus*

My soul rejoices in the Lord

Holy Father, keep those you have given me true to your name, so that they may be one like us. Alleluia. (Year B)
Or: I will not leave you desolate like orphans. I am going now, but I will return to you and then your hearts will be filled with joy. Alleluia.
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.
Holy Father, keep those you have given me true to your name, so that they may be one like us. Alleluia. (Year B)
