Hymnus
Quæ caritátis fúlgidum
es astrum, Virgo, súperis,
spei nobis mortálibus
fons vivax es et prófluus.
Sic vales, celsa Dómina,
in Nati cor piíssimi,
ut qui fidénter póstulat,
per te secúrus ímpetret.
Opem tua benígnitas
non solum fert poscéntibus,
sed et libénter sǽpius
precántum vota prǽvenit.
In te misericórdia,
in te magnificéntia;
tu bonitátis cúmulas
quicquid creáta póssident.
Patri sit et Paráclito
tuóque Nato glória,
qui veste te mirábili
circumdedérunt grátiæ. Amen.
Hymn
Mary Immaculate, star of the morning,
  Chosen before the creation began,
Chosen to bring in the light of thy dawning,
  Woe to the serpent and rescue to man.
Here, in this world of both shadow and sadness
  Veiling thy splendour, thy course hast thou run:
Now thou art throned in all glory and gladness,
  Crowned by the hand of thy Saviour and Son.
Sinners, we worship thy sinless perfection;
  Fallen and weak, for thy pity we plead:
Grant us the shield of thy sov’reign protection,
  Measure thine aid by the depth of our need.
Bend from thy throne at the voice of our crying,
  Bend to this earth which thy footsteps have trod:
Stretch out thine arms to us, living and dying,
  Mary Immaculate, Mother of God.

Ps 83:2-13
Desiderium templi Domini

Non habemus hic manentem civitatem, sed futuram inquirimus” (Hebr 13, 14).

Beáti qui hábitant in domo tua, Dómine.
2Quam dilécta tabernácula tua, Dómine virtútum!*
  3Concupíscit et déficit ánima mea in átria Dómini.
Cor meum et caro mea*
  exsultavérunt in Deum vivum.
4Etenim passer invénit sibi domum,†
  et turtur nidum sibi, ubi ponat pullos suos:*
  altária tua, Dómine virtútum, rex meus et Deus meus.
5Beáti, qui hábitant in domo tua:*
  in perpétuum laudábunt te.
6Beátus vir, cuius est auxílium abs te,*
  ascensiónes in corde suo dispósuit.
7Transeúntes per vallem sitiéntem in fontem ponent eam,*
  étenim benedictiónibus véstiet eam plúvia matutína.
8Ibunt de virtúte in virtútem,*
  vidébitur Deus deórum in Sion.
9Dómine Deus virtútum, exáudi oratiónem meam;*
  áuribus pércipe, Deus Iacob.
10Protéctor noster áspice, Deus,*
  et réspice in fáciem christi tui.
11Quia mélior est dies una in átriis tuis super mília,†
  elégi ad limen esse in domo Dei mei*
  magis quam habitáre in tabernáculis peccatórum.
12Quia sol et scutum est Dóminus Deus,†
  grátiam et glóriam dabit Dóminus;*
  non privábit bonis eos, qui ámbulant in innocéntia.
13Dómine virtútum,*
  beátus homo, qui sperat in te.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Beáti qui hábitant in domo tua, Dómine.
Psalm 83 (84)
Longing for the Lord's temple
They are happy who dwell in your house, Lord.
How delightful is your dwelling-place, Lord of hosts!
  My soul is weak with longing for the courts of your palace.
  My heart and my body rejoice in the living God.
Even the sparrow finds itself a home,
  the swallow a nest to raise her young –
  in your altars, O Lord,
  Lord of strength, my king and my God.
Blessed are they who dwell in your house:
  they will praise you for ever.
Blessed the man whose help comes from you,
  who has set his heart on climbing to you.
They pass through the valley of thirst
  and make a spring there:
  the morning rain will cover it with blessings.
They will go from strength to strength:
  they will see the God of gods, in Zion.
Lord God of hosts, listen to my prayer;
  hear me, O God of Jacob.
Take notice of us, God our protector,
  and look on the face of your anointed one.
One day in the courts of my God
  is worth more than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be at the doorstep of the house of my God
  than live in the dwellings of sinners.
For the Lord my God is my sun and my shield.
  The Lord gives grace and glory.
He will not deny his good things
  to those who walk in purity.
Blessed is he who trusts in you,
  O Lord of hosts.
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.
They are happy who dwell in your house, Lord.

CanticumIs 2:2-5
Mons domus Domini in vertice montium

Omnes gentes venient et adorabunt in conspectu tuo” (Ap 15, 4).

Veníte et ascendámus ad montem Dómini.
2Erit in novíssimis diébus*
  præparátus mons domus Dómini in vértice móntium,
et elevábitur super colles,*
  et fluent ad eum omnes gentes.
3Et ibunt pópuli multi et dicent:†
  «Veníte et ascendámus ad montem Dómini,*
  ad domum Dei Iacob,
ut dóceat nos vias suas,*
  et ambulémus in sémitis eius»;
quia de Sion exíbit lex*
  et verbum Dómini de Ierúsalem.
4Et iudicábit gentes*
  et árguet pópulos multos,
et conflábunt gládios suos in vómeres*
  et lánceas suas in falces;
non levábit gens contra gentem gládium,*
  nec exercebúntur ultra ad prœ́lium.
5Domus Iacob, veníte,*
  et ambulémus in lúmine Dómini.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.

CanticleIsaiah 2
The mountain of the house of the Lord
Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord.
In the last days, at the end of time,
  the mountain of the house of the Lord
  will be prepared high above all mountains.
It will be raised above the hills
  and all nations will come to it.
And many peoples will come there and say
  “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
  to the house of the God of Jacob.
Let him teach us his ways,
  so that we may walk in his paths.”
For from Zion the law will go forth,
  from Jerusalem the word of the Lord.
And he will judge the nations
  and rebuke many peoples.
They will beat their swords into ploughshares
  and their spears into sickles.
Nation will lift sword against nation no longer.
  No longer will they go out into battle.
People of Jacob, come:
  let us walk in the light of the Lord.
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, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord.

Ps 95:1-13
Dominus rex et iudex omnis terræ

Cantabant quasi canticum novum ante sedem in conspectu Agni” (Cf. Ap 14, 3).

Contremíscite a fácie eius, univérsa terra,*
  10dícite in géntibus: «Dóminus regnávit!».
Etenim corréxit orbem terræ, qui non commovébitur;*
  iudicábit pópulos in æquitáte.
11Læténtur cæli et exsúltet terra,†
  sonet mare et plenitúdo eius;*
  12gaudébunt campi et ómnia, quæ in eis sunt.
Tunc exsultábunt ómnia ligna silvárum†
  13a fácie Dómini, quia venit,*
  quóniam venit iudicáre terram.
Iudicábit orbem terræ in iustítia*
  et pópulos in veritáte sua.
Glória Patri et Fílio*

Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Cantáte Dómino, benedícite nómini eius.
Psalm 95 (96)
The Lord, the universal King and judge
O sing to the Lord, bless his name.
Sing a new song to the Lord,
  sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
  day after day, proclaim his saving power.
Proclaim his glory to the nations,
  proclaim to all peoples the wonders he has done.
For the Lord is great; great is the praise we owe him,
  he is to be feared above all gods.
The gods of the nations are foolishness,
  but the Lord made the heavens.
Majesty and splendour are all about him,
  power and honour in his holy place.
Bring to the Lord, clans of the peoples,
  bring to the Lord glory and power,
  bring to the Lord the glory that belongs to his name.
Bring your offerings, enter his courts,
  worship the Lord in holy attire.
Tremble at his presence, all the earth.
  Say to the nations: “The Lord reigns!”
For he has set the world firm, so that it cannot be shaken,
  and he will judge the peoples with fairness.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad,
  let the sea and its fullness resound.
The fields will rejoice, and all that is in them,
  all the trees of the woods will rejoice
  at the Lord’s presence – for he comes,
  for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge all the world with justice.
  He will judge all the peoples with fairness.
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.
O sing to the Lord, bless his name.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Paradísi porta per Evam cunctis clausa est, et per Maríam Vírginem patefácta est.
Benedíctus Dóminus Deus Israel,*
  quia visitávit et fecit redemptiónem plebi suæ
et eréxit cornu salútis nobis*
  in domo David púeri sui,
sicut locútus est per os sanctórum,*
  qui a sæculo sunt, prophetárum eius,
salútem ex inimícis nostris*
  et de manu ómnium, qui odérunt nos;
ad faciéndam misericórdiam cum pátribus nostris*
  et memorári testaménti sui sancti,
iusiurándum, quod iurávit ad Abraham patrem nostrum,*
  datúrum se nobis,
ut sine timóre, de manu inimicórum liberáti,*
  serviámus illi
in sanctitáte et iustítia coram ipso*
  ómnibus diébus nostris.
Et tu, puer, prophéta Altíssimi vocáberis:*
  præíbis enim ante fáciem Dómini paráre vias eius,
ad dandam sciéntiam salútis plebi eius*
  in remissiónem peccatórum eórum,
per víscera misericórdiæ Dei nostri,*
  in quibus visitábit nos óriens ex alto,
illumináre his, qui in ténebris et in umbra mortis sedent*
  ad dirigéndos pedes nostros in viam pacis.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
They all joined together in constant prayer, with Mary the mother of Jesus.
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
  for he has come to his people and brought about their redemption.
He has raised up the sign of salvation
  in the house of his servant David,
as he promised through the mouth of the holy ones,
  his prophets through the ages:
to rescue us from our enemies
  and all who hate us,
to take pity on our fathers,
  to remember his holy covenant
and the oath he swore to Abraham our father,
  that he would give himself to us,
that we could serve him without fear
 – freed from the hands of our enemies –
in uprightness and holiness before him,
  for all of our days.
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High:
  for you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare his path,
to let his people know their salvation,
  so that their sins may be forgiven.
Through the bottomless mercy of our God,
  one born on high will visit us
to give light to those who walk in darkness,
  who live in the shadow of death;
  to lead our feet in the path of peace.
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.
They all joined together in constant prayer, with Mary the mother of Jesus.

Prayers and intercessions
Let us proclaim the greatness of our Saviour who chose to be born of the Virgin Mary. Confident that he will hear us, we ask:
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Sun of justice, you showed your day was dawning in the immaculate Virgin Mary;
  help us to walk in the daylight of your presence.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Eternal Word, in the living flesh of Mary you found a dwelling place on earth;
  remain with us for ever in hearts free from sin.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Christ, our Saviour, you willed that your mother should be there when you died;
  through her intercession may we rejoice to share your suffering.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Loving Saviour, while hanging on the cross, you gave your mother Mary to be the mother of John;
  let us be known as her children by our way of living.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.

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, misericordiárum Pater, cuius Unigénitus, cruci affíxus,
  beátam Maríam Vírginem, Genetrícem suam,
  Matrem quoque nostram constítuit,
  concéde, quæ´sumus, ut, eius cooperánte caritáte,
  Ecclésia tua, in dies fecúndior, prolis sanctitáte exsúltet
  et in grémium suum cunctas áttrahat famílias populórum.

qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus,
per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.

O God, Father of mercies,
whose Only Begotten Son, as he hung upon the Cross,
chose the Blessed Virgin Mary, his Mother, to be our Mother also;
grant, we pray,
that with her loving help,
your Church may be more fruitful day by day,
and exulting in the holiness of her children,
may draw to her embrace all the families of the peoples.
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.
