O DEIGN TO FEEL FOR THEIR WEAKNESS; BEHOLD THE DANGERS WHICH ENCOMPASS THEM ON ALL SIDES, THE EVILS WHICH CAUSE THEM TO SIGH AND GROAN. FULL OF TRUST AND LOVE, THEY COME TO THEE, O MOST TENDER AND COMPASSIONATE OF ALL SOULS; RECEIVE THEM IN THY MERCY AND GOODNESS; CAUSE THEM TO FEEL THE EFFECTS OF THY MOST PLENTIFUL REDEMPTION, AND THE EXCESS OF THY BURNING LOVE!

And His eyes were as a flame of fire: and on His Head were many diadems. And He had a name written which no man knoweth but Himself. Ps8 v 2. O Lord our Lord: how admirable is Thy Name in the whole earth! Glory be to........

                           Epistle: (Apoc 21. v.1-7)

Et vidi caelum novum et terram novam. Primum enim caelum et prima terra abiit, et mare jam non est. Et ego Joannes vidi sanctam civitatem Jerusalem novam descendentem de caelo a Deo, paratam, sicut sponsam ornatam viro suo, et audivi vocem magnam de throno dicentem: Ecce tabernaculum Dei cum hominibus et habitabit cum eis. Et ipsi populus ejus erunt, et ipse Deus cum eis erit eorum Deus. Et absterget Deus omnem lacrymam ab oculis eorum: et mors ultra non erit neque luctus, neque clamor, neque dolor, erit ultra, quia prima abierunt. Et dixit qui sedebat in throno: ecce nova facio omnia. Et dixit mihi: Scribe quia haec verba fidelissima sunt et vera. Et dixit mihi: Factum est: Ego sum alpha et omega: initium et finis. Ego sitienti dabo de fonte aquae vitae gratis. Qui vicerit possidebit haec, et ero illi Deus, et ille erit mihi filius.     

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth was gone: and the sea is now no more. And I John, saw the holy city the new Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice from the throne, saying : Behold the tabernacle of God with men: and He will dwell with them. And they shall be His people: and God Himself with them shall be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and death shall be no more, nor mourning, nor crying, nor sorrow shall be anymore for the former things are passed away. And He that sat on the throne said: Behold, I make all things new. And He said to me:Write, for these words are most faithful and true. And He said to me: It is done. I am Alpha and Omega: the Beginning and the End. To him that thirsteth, I will give of the fountain of the water of life, freely. He that shall overcome shall possess these things. And I will be his God: and he shall be My son.

                                                                                                 Gradual: Ps.114 v.4-5.

Quaerite Dominum et confirmamini: quaerite faciem ejus semper.v. Mementote mirabilium ejus, quae fecit: prodigia ejus, et judicia oris ejus.   

Seek ye the Lord and be strengthened: seek His Face evermore. Remember His marvellous works which He hath done: His wonders and the judgements of His mouth.

                                                                                              Out of septuagesima:

                                                                                                  Alleluia: Luke 7 v.22.

Alleluia, alleluia.v. Euntes renunciate Joanni quae audistis et vidistis: Quia caeci vident, claudi ambulant, leprosi mundantur, surdi audiunt, mortui resurgunt, pauperes evangelizantur. Alleluia.  

Alleluia, alleluia. Go and relate to John what you have heard and seen: the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers made clean, the deaf hear, the dead rise again, to the poor the gospel is preached. Alleluia.


                                                                                              After septuagesima:

                                                                                               Tract: Ps 115.v 1-3.

<>Confitemini Domino, et invocate nomen ejus, annunciate inter gentes opera ejus. Cantate ei, et psallite ei: narrate omnia mirabilia ejus. Laudamini in nomine sancto ejus: laetetur cor quaerentium Dominum.  


Give glory to the Lord for He is good: for His mercy endureth forever. Who shall declare the powers of the Lord? Who shall set forth all His praises? Blessed are they that keep judgement and do justice at all times.



                                                                                                  In paschaltide:

                                            1st & 2nd Alleluia: Luke24 v.25-26.



Alleluia, alleluia. v. O stulti et tardi corde ad credendum in omnibus quae locuti sunt Prophetae! Alleluia.v.Nonne haec oportuit pati Christum et ita intrare in gloriam Suam? Alleluia.    

Alleluia, alleluia.v. O foolish and slow of heart to believe in all things which the prophets have spoken! Alleluia.v. Ought not Christ to have suffered these things and so to enter into His glory? Alleluia.



                          Gospel: John 14. v. 6-17.

Dicit ei Jesus: Ego sum via et veritas et vita: nemo venit ad Patrem nisi per Me. Si cognovissetis Me et Patrem Meum utique cognovissetis: et amodo cognos cetis Eum et vidistis Eum. Dicit ei Philippus: Domine, ostende nobis Patrem et sufficit nobis. Dicit ei Jesus: Tanto tempore vobis cum sum: et non cognovistis Me? Philippe, qui videt Me, videt et Patrem. Quomodo tu dicis: Ostende nobis Patrem?  Non creditis quia Ego in Patre et Pater in Me est? Verba quae Ego loqui vobis, a meipso non loquor. Pater autem in Me manens, ipse facit opera. Non creditis quia Ego in Patre et Pater in Me est? Alioquin propter opera ipsa credite. Amen, amen dico vobis: qui credit in Me, opera, quae Ego facio et ipse faciet et majora horum faciet: quia Ego ad Patrem vado. Et quodcumque petieritis Patrem in Nomine Meo, hoc faciam:ut glorificetur Pater in Filio. Si quid petieritis Me in Nomine Meo, hoc faciam. Si diligitis Me:mandata Mea servate. Et Ego rogabo Patrem, et alium Paracletum dabit vobis, ut maneat vobiscum in aeternum. Spiritum veritatis, quem mundus non potest accipere, quia non videt Eum, nec scit Eum: vos autem cognoscetis Eum: quia apud vos manebit et in vobis erit. Credo.      

Jesus saith to them: I am the way and the truth and the life. No man cometh to the Father but by Me. If you had known Me, you would without doubt have known My Father also: and from henceforth you shall know Him. And you have seen Him. Phillip saith to Him: Lord shew us the Father; and it is enough for us. Jesus saith to him: Have I been so long a time with you and have you not known Me? Phillip, he that seeth Me seeth the Father also. How sayest thou: Shew us the Father? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you, I speak not of Myself. But the Father Who abideth in Me, He doth the works. Believe you not that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? Otherwise believe for the very works' sake. Amen, amen, I say to you, he that believeth in Me, the works that I do, he also shall do and greater than these shall he do. Because I go to the Father: and whatsoever you shall ask the Father in My Name, that will I do: that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you shall ask Me anything in My Name, that I will do. If you love Me, keep My Commandments. And I will ask the Father and He shall give you another Paraclete, that He may abide with you forever. The Spirit of truth, Whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, nor knoweth Him. But you shall know Him; because He shall abide with you and shall be in you. Creed.

                                                                                                 Out of Paschaltide:

                                Offertory: Ps 109 v.1-2.


Dixit Dominus Domino meo:sede a dextris meis: Donec ponam inimicos tuos, scabellum pedem tuorum. Virgam virtutis tuae emittet Dominus ex Sion: dominare in medio inimicorum tuorum. 

The Lord said to my Lord: sit Thou at My right hand: until I make Thy enemies Thy footstool. The Lord will send forth the sceptre of Thy power out of Sion; rule Thou in the midst of Thy enemies.


                                                                                                 During Paschaltide:

Confiteantur tibi, Domine, omnes reges terrae: quia audierunt omnia verba oris tui: et cantent in viis Domini: quoniam magna est gloria Domini. Alleluia.     

May all the kings of the earth give glory to Thee: for they have heard all the words of Thy mouth. And let them sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord. Alleluia.
