O God, come to our aid.
  O Lord, make haste to help us.

Hymnus
Tristes erant Apóstoli
de nece sui Dómini,
quem morte crudelíssima
sævi damnárant ímpii.
Sermóne blando Angelus
prædíxit muliéribus:
«In Galilǽa Dóminus
vidéndus est quantócius».
Illæ dum pergunt cóncitæ
Apóstolis hoc dícere,
vidéntes eum vívere,
ósculant pedes Dómini.
Quo ágnito, discípuli
in Galilǽa própere
pergunt vidére fáciem
desiderátam Dómini.
Esto perénne méntibus
paschále, Iesu, gáudium,
et nos renátos grátiæ
tuis triúmphis ággrega.
Sit, Christe, tibi glória,
qui regno mortis óbruto,
pandísti per Apóstolos
vitæ lucísque sémitas. Amen.
Hymn
Now let the heavens with joy resound,
And earth the chant re-echo round;
Nor heaven nor earth too high can raise
The great Apostles’ glorious praise.
Theirs was the steadfast faith of saints,
The unconquered hope that never faints,
The perfect love of Christ to know,
That lays the praise of this world low.
In them the Father’s glory shone,
In them the Spirit’s will was done;
The Son’s glad praise to them is given,
With joy resound the courts of heaven.
To thee, Redeemer, now we cry,
That with this glorious band on high,
Through endless ages, by thy grace,
Thy servants also may have place.

Ps 116:1-2
Laus miserentis Domini

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

Vocávit Iesus discípulos suos et elégit duódecim ex ipsis, quos et Apóstolos nominávit.
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.
Vocávit Iesus discípulos suos et elégit duódecim ex ipsis, quos et Apóstolos nominávit.

Psalm 116 (117)
Praise of the merciful Lord

Jesus called his disciples to him, and from among them he chose twelve and called them apostles.
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.
Jesus called his disciples to him, and from among them he chose twelve and called them apostles.

Ps 147:12-20
Instauratio Ierusalem

Veni, ostendam tibi sponsam uxorem Agni” (Ap 21, 9).

Relíctis rétibus suis, secúti sunt Dóminum redemptórem.
12Lauda, Ierúsalem, Dóminum;*
  colláuda Deum tuum, Sion.
13Quóniam confortávit seras portárum tuárum,*
  benedíxit fíliis tuis in te.
14Qui ponit fines tuos pacem*
  et ádipe fruménti sátiat te.
15Qui emíttit elóquium suum terræ,*
  velóciter currit verbum eius.
16Qui dat nivem sicut lanam,*
  pruínam sicut cínerem spargit.
17Mittit crystállum suam sicut buccéllas;*
  ante fáciem frígoris eius quis sustinébit?
18Emíttet verbum suum et liquefáciet ea,*
  flabit spíritus eius, et fluent aquæ.
19Qui annúntiat verbum suum Iacob,*
  iustítias et iudícia sua Israel.
20Non fecit táliter omni natióni,*
  et iudícia sua non manifestávit eis.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Relíctis rétibus suis, secúti sunt Dóminum redemptórem.

Psalm 147 (147B)
God, the foundation of Jerusalem

They left their nets and followed their Lord and Redeemer.
Praise the Lord, Jerusalem
 — Zion, praise your God.
For he has strengthened the bars of your gates,
  he has blessed your children.
He keeps your borders in peace,
  he fills you with the richest wheat.
He sends out his command over the earth,
  and swiftly runs his word.
He sends down snow that is like wool,
  frost that is like ashes.
He sends hailstones like crumbs
 — who can withstand his cold?
He will send out his word, and all will be melted;
  his spirit will breathe, and the waters will flow.
He proclaims his word to Jacob,
  his laws and judgements to Israel.
He has not done this for other nations:
  he has not shown them his judgements.
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 left their nets and followed their Lord and Redeemer.

CanticleEphesians 1

God the Saviour

You are my friends since you have remained in my love.
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.
You are my friends since you have remained in my love.

Lectio brevisAct 2:42-45
Erant omnes perseverántes in doctrína apostolórum et communicatióne, in fractióne panis et oratiónibus. Fiébat autem omni ánimæ timor; multa quoque prodígia et signa per apóstolos fiébant. Omnes autem, qui credíderant erant páriter et habébant ómnia commúnia et possessiónes et substántias vendébant et dividébant illas ómnibus, prout cuíque opus erat.
Short ReadingActs 2:42-45 ©
All remained faithful to the teaching of the apostles, to the brotherhood, to the breaking of bread and to the prayers. The many miracles and signs worked through the apostles made a deep impression on everyone. The faithful all lived together and owned everything in common; they sold their goods and possessions and shared out the proceeds among themselves according to what each one needed.

Exsultatio animæ in Domino

Non vos me elegístis, sed ego elégi vos et pósui vos, ut eátis et fructum afferátis et fructus vester máneat.
Magníficat*
  ánima mea Dóminum,
et exsultávit spíritus meus*
  in Deo salvatóre meo,
quia respéxit humilitátem ancíllæ suæ.*
  Ecce enim ex hoc beátam me dicent omnes generatiónes,
quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est,*
  et sanctum nomen eius,
et misericórdia eius in progénies et progénies*
  timéntibus eum.
Fecit poténtiam in bráchio suo,*
  dispérsit supérbos mente cordis sui;
depósuit poténtes de sede*
  et exaltávit húmiles;
esuriéntes implévit bonis*
  et dívites dimísit inánes.
Suscépit Israel púerum suum,*
  recordátus misericórdiæ,
sicut locútus est ad patres nostros,*
  Abraham et sémini eius in sǽcula.
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Non vos me elegístis, sed ego elégi vos et pósui vos, ut eátis et fructum afferátis et fructus vester máneat.

My soul rejoices in the Lord

You did not choose me: I chose you. I appointed you to go on and bear fruit, fruit that shall last.
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.
You did not choose me: I chose you. I appointed you to go on and bear fruit, fruit that shall last.

Prayers and intercessions
Since we are part of a building that has the apostles for its foundation, let us pray to the Father for his holy people.
Lord, remember your Church.
Father, when your Son rose from the dead, you showed him first to the apostles;
  let us make him known, near and far.
Lord, remember your Church.
You sent your Son into the world to proclaim the good news to the poor:
  grant that we may bring his gospel into the darkness of men’s lives.
Lord, remember your Church.
You sent your Son to plant in men’s hearts the seed of imperishable life;
  may we labour to sow his word and reap a harvest of joy.
Lord, remember your Church.
You sent your Son to reconcile the world with yourself by the shedding of his blood;
  let us become his fellow workers in restoring men to your friendship.
Lord, remember your Church.
You placed your Son at your own right hand in heaven;
  receive the dead into the happiness of your kingdom.
Lord, remember your Church.

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.

Maiestátem tuam, Dómine, supplíciter exorámus, ut, sicut Ecclésiæ tuæ beátus Andréas apóstolus éxstitit prædicátor et rector, ita apud te sit pro nobis perpétuus intercéssor.
Per Dóminum nostrum Iesum Christum, Fílium tuum,
qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus,
per ómnia sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Lord God,
  you called Saint Andrew, your apostle,
  to preach the gospel and to guide your Church.
We humbly pray
  that he may always plead for us in your presence.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
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.
