Hymnus
O redemptóris píetas colénda,
quæ Patri exóptans hómines dicári,
Spíritus miro varióque ducis
péctora nutu!
Quos tua lympha facis esse natos
ex Deo vero, nova vis in illis
grátiam crebro dare caritátis
gérmina, Christe.
Tu vocas: currunt álacres vocáti,
ábdicant cunctis, duce te voléntes,
calle regáli crucis, usque solum
quǽrere Patrem.
Cǽlitus fervens ita sanctus iste
víribus totis tibi amánter hæsit,
atque virtútum cúpiit tenére
cúlmina læta.
Laus Patri summo, tibi, Christe princeps,
Flámini Sancto párilis resúltet,
parva qui danti, bona corde magno
céntupla fertis. Amen.
Hymn
All hail the power of Jesus’ name;
  Let Angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem
  To crown him Lord of all.
Crown him, ye Martyrs of your God,
  Who from his altar call;
Praise him whose way of pain ye trod,
  And crown him Lord of all.
Hail him, ye heirs of David’s line,
  Whom David Lord did call;
The God Incarnate, Man Divine,
  And crown him Lord of all.
Let every tribe and every tongue
  To him their hearts enthral,
Lift high the universal song,
  And crown him Lord of all.

Ps 118:145-152
Prope es tu, Dómine, et omnes viæ tuæ véritas.
145Clamávi in toto corde, exáudi me, Dómine;*
  iustificatiónes tuas servábo.
146Clamávi ad te, salvum me fac,*
  ut custódiam testimónia tua.
147Prævéni dilúculo et clamávi,*
  in verba tua supersperávi.
148Prævenérunt óculi mei vigílias,*
  ut meditárer elóquia tua.
149Vocem meam audi secúndum misericórdiam tuam, Dómine,*
  secúndum iudícium tuum vivífica me.
150Appropinquavérunt persequéntes me in malítia,*
  a lege autem tua longe facti sunt.
151Prope es tu, Dómine,*
  et ómnia præcépta tua véritas.
152Ab inítio cognóvi de testimóniis tuis,*
  quia in ætérnum fundásti ea.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Prope es tu, Dómine, et omnes viæ tuæ véritas.
Psalm 118 (119): 145-152
You, O Lord, are close; your ways are truth.
I call on you with all my heart –
  answer me, Lord.
  I will obey your laws.
I call on you –
  save me
  so that I can keep your decrees.
At first light I cry to you,
  I put all my hope in your word.
In the night I keep watch,
  pondering your sayings.
In your mercy, Lord, hear my voice;
  in your justice, give me life.
My persecutors come to do me harm:
  they are far from your law.
But you, Lord, are near to me,
  and you are trustworthy in all your precepts.
From the beginning I have known your decrees,
  how you have made them to last 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.
You, O Lord, are close; your ways are truth.

CanticumSap 9:1-6,9-11
Domine, da mihi sapientiam

Dabo vobis os et sapientiam, cui non poterunt resistere ... adversarii vestri” (Lc 21, 15).

Mecum sit, Dómine, sapiéntia tua et mecum labóret.
1Deus patrum meórum et Dómine misericórdiæ,*
  qui fecísti ómnia verbo tuo
2et sapiéntia tua constituísti hóminem,*
  ut dominarétur creatúris, quæ a te factæ sunt,
3et dispóneret orbem terrárum in sanctitáte et iustítia*
  et in directióne cordis iudícium iudicáret,
4da mihi sédium tuárum assistrícem sapiéntiam*
  et noli me reprobáre a púeris tuis,
5quóniam servus tuus sum ego et fílius ancíllæ tuæ,†
  homo infírmus et exígui témporis*
  et minor ad intelléctum iudícii et legum.
6Nam, et si quis erit consummátus inter fílios hóminum,†
  si ab illo abfúerit sapiéntia tua,*
  in níhilum computábitur.
9Et tecum sapiéntia, quæ novit ópera tua,*
  quæ et áffuit tunc, cum orbem terrárum fáceres,
et sciébat quid esset plácitum in óculis tuis*
  et quid diréctum in præcéptis tuis.
10Emítte illam de cælis sanctis tuis*
  et a sede magnitúdinis tuæ mitte illam,
ut mecum sit et mecum labóret,*
  ut sciam quid accéptum sit apud te.
11Scit enim illa ómnia et intéllegit†
  et dedúcet me in opéribus meis sóbrie*
  et custódiet me in sua glória.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Mecum sit, Dómine, sapiéntia tua et mecum labóret.
CanticleWisdom 9
Lord, give me wisdom
Lord, let your wisdom be with me to help me and to work with me.
God of my fathers and Lord of mercy,
  who made all things by your word;
  who in your wisdom set man to rule over all that you created
 – to arrange the world in holiness and justice
 – to make right judgements according to the guidance of his heart:
give me Wisdom, who stands by your throne,
  and let me not be unworthy to be your servant.
For I am your slave and the son of your servant-girl,
  a man, weak, short-lived,
  slow to understand your judgements and laws.
Even the highest of the children of men
 – if your wisdom is absent – counts for nothing.
With you abides Wisdom, who knows your works.
  She was with you when you made the world.
  She knew what was pleasing to your eyes.
  She saw what was right according to your precepts.
Send your Wisdom from the highest heaven;
  send her from the throne of your greatness;
  that she may abide with me and work with me,
  so that I may know what it is that pleases you.
For Wisdom knows everything, and understands;
  she will lead me wisely in what I do,
  and protect me in her 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.
Lord, let your wisdom be with me to help me and to work with me.

Ps 116:1-2
Laus miserentis Domini

Dico... gentes propter misericordiam glorificare Deum” (Rom 15, 8. 9).

Véritas Dómini manet in ætérnum.
1Laudáte Dóminum, omnes gentes,*
  collaudáte eum, omnes pópuli.
2Quóniam confirmáta est super nos misericórdia eius,*
  et véritas Dómini manet in ætérnum.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Véritas Dómini manet in ætérnum.
Psalm 116 (117)
Praise of the merciful Lord
The truth of the Lord will stand firm for ever.
Praise the Lord, all nations; all peoples, praise him.
For his mercy is strong over us and his faithfulness is 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.
The truth of the Lord will stand firm for ever.

Lectio brevisRom 12:1-2
Obsecro vos, fratres, per misericórdiam Dei, ut exhibeátis córpora vestra hóstiam vivéntem, sanctam, Deo placéntem, rationábile obséquium vestrum; et nolíte conformári huic sæculo, sed transformámini renovatióne mentis, ut probétis quid sit volúntas Dei, quid bonum et bene placens et perféctum.
Short ReadingRomans 12:1-2 ©
The word of the Lord has meant insult for me
Think of God’s mercy, my brothers, and worship him, I beg you, in a way that is worthy of thinking beings, by offering your living bodies as a holy sacrifice, truly pleasing to God. Do not model yourselves on the behaviour of the world around you, but let your behaviour change, modelled by your new mind. This is the only way to discover the will of God and know what is good, what it is that God wants, what is the perfect thing to do.

Canticum
De Messia eiusque præcursore
Si quis fécerit voluntátem Patris mei, ipse meus frater, soror et mater est, dicit Dóminus.
Vel: Pars mea Dóminus; bonus est ánimæ quærénti illum.
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*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.

CanticleBenedictus
The Messiah and his forerunner
Whoever does the will of my Father, says the Lord, is my brother, and sister, and mother.
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.
Whoever does the will of my Father, says the Lord, is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Prayers and intercessions
With all the holy women let us praise our Saviour and call on him in prayer.
Come, Lord Jesus.
Lord Jesus, you said of the woman who was a sinner, ‘Her many sins are forgiven, because she has loved much’;
  grant us your forgiveness for our many sins.
Come, Lord Jesus.
Lord Jesus, women ministered to your needs on your saving journeys;
  open our eyes to see you in those who need our help.
Come, Lord Jesus.
Lord and master, Mary listened to your teaching and Martha did the serving;
  may our faith grow ever deeper and our love go out to others.
Come, Lord Jesus.
Lord Jesus, you called those who do God’s will your brother and sister and mother;
  teach us to live as members of your family.
Come, Lord Jesus.

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.

Deus, cuius múnere beáta N. Christum páuperem et húmilem perseverávit imitári, concéde nobis, ipsa intercedénte, ut, in vocatióne nostra fidéliter ambulántes, ad eam perfectiónem, quam nobis in Fílio tuo proposuísti, perveníre valeámus.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum,
qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus,
per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
O God, by whose grace the holy virgin Etheldreda
  chose rather to be a servant of Christ
  than the queen of an earthly realm,
at her intercession, grant, we pray,
  that we may be freed from earthly toils
  and be found worthy of a heavenly crown.
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.
