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 10:1-7
Dominus fiducia iusti

Beati, qui esuriunt et sitiunt iustitiam, quoniam ipsi saturabuntur” (Mt 5, 6).

Oculi Dómini in páuperem respíciunt.
1In Dómino confído, quómodo dícitis ánimæ meæ:*
  «Tránsmigra in montem sicut passer?
2Quóniam ecce peccatóres intendérunt arcum,†
  paravérunt sagíttas suas super nervum,*
  ut sagíttent in obscúro rectos corde.
3Quando fundaménta evertúntur,*
  iustus quid fáciat?».
4Dóminus in templo sancto suo,*
  Dóminus, in cælo sedes eius.
Oculi eius in páuperem respíciunt,*
  pálpebræ eius intérrogant fílios hóminum.
5Dóminus intérrogat iustum et ímpium;*
  qui autem díligit iniquitátem, odit ánima eius.
6Pluet super peccatóres carbónes;*
  ignis et sulphur et spíritus procellárum pars cálicis eórum.
7Quóniam iustus Dóminus et iustítias diléxit,*
  recti vidébunt vultum eius.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Oculi Dómini in páuperem respíciunt.
Psalm 10 (11)
The Lord, support of the just
The Lord cares for the weak and oppressed.
I trust in the Lord, so why do you say to me:
  “Fly up to the mountain like a sparrow”?
“For the wicked have drawn their bows,
  fitted the arrow to the string,
  to shoot in darkness at the upright of heart.
When the foundations are being overthrown,
  what are the just to do?”
The Lord is in his holy temple;
  the Lord’s throne is in heaven.
His eyes look down on the poor,
  he examines the children of men.
The Lord scrutinises the just and the unjust,
  and his heart hates those who do evil.
He rains down coals upon the wicked,
  fire and brimstone and a scorching wind:
  this is what he gives them to drink.
For the Lord is just and loves just deeds,
  and the upright shall see his face.
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 cares for the weak and oppressed.

Ps 14:1-5
Quis dignus coram Domino?

Accessistis ad Sion montem et civitatem Dei viventis” (Hebr 12, 22).

Beáti mundo corde, quóniam ipsi Deum vidébunt.
1Dómine, quis habitábit in tabernáculo tuo?*
  Quis requiéscet in monte sancto tuo?
2Qui ingréditur sine mácula et operátur iustítiam,*
  qui lóquitur veritátem in corde suo,
3qui non egit dolum in lingua sua,†
  nec fecit próximo suo malum*
  et oppróbrium non íntulit próximo suo.
4Ad níhilum reputátus est in conspéctu eius malígnus,*
  timéntes autem Dóminum gloríficat.
Qui iurávit in detriméntum suum et non mutat,†
  5qui pecúniam suam non dedit ad usúram*
  et múnera super innocéntem non accépit.
Qui facit hæc,*
  non movébitur in ætérnum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Beáti mundo corde, quóniam ipsi Deum vidébunt.
Psalm 14 (15)
Who is worthy to face the Lord?
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Lord, who will live in your tent?
  Who will dwell on your holy mountain?
Whoever comes there without stain,
  acts rightly, speaks truth in his heart.
Whoever does not speak deceitfully,
  or do harm to his neighbour, or slander him.
Whoever despises the evil-doer,
  but reveres those who fear the Lord.
Whoever swears and keeps his word, come what may
 – lends his money without usury –
  takes no bribe to condemn the innocent.
Whoever lives like this
  will stand firm 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.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

CanticleEphesians 1
God the Saviour
God chose us in his Son and made us his adopted sons.
Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
  who has blessed us, in Christ,
  with every spiritual blessing in heaven.
In love, he chose us before the creation of the world,
  to be holy and spotless in his sight.
He predestined us to be his adopted children through Jesus Christ,
  simply because it pleased him to do so.
This he did for the praise of the glory of his grace,
  of his free gift to us in his Beloved,
in whose blood we have gained redemption,
  and the forgiveness of our sins.
This he did according to the riches of his grace,
  which he gave us in abundance,
with all wisdom and discernment,
  revealing to us the mysteries of his will,
  because it pleased him to do so.
In this action he has planned, in the fulfilment of time,
  to bring all things together in Christ,
  from the heavens and from the earth.
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.
God chose us in his Son and made us his adopted sons.

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.

Omnibus ómnia factus sum, ut omnes fácerem salvos.
Magníficat*
  ánima mea Dóminum,
et exsultávit spíritus meus*
  in Deo salvatóre meo,
quia respéxit humilitátem ancíllæ suæ.*

CanticleMagnificat
My soul rejoices in the Lord
I made myself all things to all men in order to save them all.
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.
I made myself all things to all men in order to save them all.

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.

Omnípotens sempitérne Deus, qui sanctum Pium, presbýterum, crucis Fílii tui singulári grátia partícipem esse donásti, et per eius ministérium misericórdiæ tuæ mirabília renovásti, concéde nobis, ut, eius intercessióne, passiónibus Christi iúgiter sociáti ad resurrectiónis glóriam felíciter perducámur.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum,
qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus,
per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Almighty and eternal God,
  who, by a singular grace, allowed the priest Saint Pio to participate in the cross of your Son,
  and by means of his ministry renewed the wonders of your mercy,
grant, through his intercession,
  that, constantly united to the passion of Christ,
  we may happily arrive at the glory of the resurrection.
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.
