Invitatory {Antiph. from the Common or Feast}
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. For the Lord will not cast off his people: for in his hand are all the ends of the earth, and the heights of the mountains are his.
Ant. O come, let us worship.
For the sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. (genuflect) Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us: For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
Today if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts: As in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness: where your fathers tempted me, they proved me, and saw my works.
Ant. O come, let us worship.
Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart. And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.
Ant. The Lord, the King of Confessors, * O come, let us worship.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Hymnus {ex Commune aut Festo}
Iste Confessor Dómini coléntes,
Quem pie laudant pópuli per orbem,
Hac die lætus meruit supremos
Laudis honores.

Qui pius, prudens, humilis, pudicus,
Sobriam duxit sine labe vitam,
Donec humanos animávit auræ
Spíritus artus.

Cuius ob præstans meritum, frequenter,
Ægra quæ passim iacuere membra,
Viribus morbi domitis, salúti
Restituúntur.

Noster hinc illi chorus obsequentem
Concinit laudem celebresque palmas,
Ut piis eius precibus iuvemur
Omne per ævum.

Sit salus illi, decus atque virtus,
Qui, super cæli solio coruscans,
Totius mundi seriem gubernat,
Trinus et unus.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Common or Feast}
This the confessor of the Lord, whose triumph
Now all the faithful celebrate, with gladness
On this feast day year by year receiveth
Merited honors.

Saintly and prudent, modest in behaviour,
Peaceful and sober, chaste was he, and lowly.
While that life's vigour, coursing through his members,
Quickened his being.

Sick ones of old time, to his tomb resorting,
Sorely by ailments manifold afflicted,
Oft-times have welcomed health and strength returning,
At his petition.

Whence we in chorus gladly do him honour,
Chanting his praises with devout affection,
That in his merits we may have a portion,
Now and forever.

His be the glory, power and salvation,
Who over all things reigneth in the highest,
Earth's mighty fabric ruling and directing,
Onely and Trinal.
Amen.

37:3 Non est sánitas in carne mea a fácie iræ tuæ: * non est pax óssibus meis a fácie peccatórum meórum.
37:4 Quóniam iniquitátes meæ supergréssæ sunt caput meum: * et sicut onus grave gravátæ sunt super me.
37:5 Putruérunt et corrúptæ sunt cicatríces meæ, * a fácie insipiéntiæ meæ.
37:6 Miser factus sum, et curvátus sum usque in finem: * tota die contristátus ingrediébar.
37:7 Quóniam lumbi mei impléti sunt illusiónibus: * et non est sánitas in carne mea.
37:8 Afflíctus sum, et humiliátus sum nimis: * rugiébam a gémitu cordis mei.
37:9 Dómine, ante te omne desidérium meum: * et gémitus meus a te non est abscónditus.
37:10 Cor meum conturbátum est, derelíquit me virtus mea: * et lumen oculórum meórum, et ipsum non est mecum.

Ant. O Lord, * do not chastise me in thy wrath.
Psalm 37(1-11) [7]
37:1 Rebuke me not, O Lord, in thy indignation; * nor chastise me in thy wrath.
37:2 For thy arrows are fastened in me: * and thy hand hath been strong upon me.
37:3 There is no health in my flesh, because of thy wrath: * there is no peace for my bones, because of my sins.
37:4 For my iniquities are gone over my head: * and as a heavy burden are become heavy upon me.
37:5 My sores are putrified and corrupted, * because of my foolishness.
37:6 I am become miserable, and am bowed down even to the end: * I walked sorrowful all the day long.
37:7 For my loins are filled with illusions; * and there is no health in my flesh.
37:8 I am afflicted and humbled exceedingly: * I roared with the groaning of my heart.
37:9 Lord, all my desire is before thee, * and my groaning is not hidden from thee.
37:10 My heart is troubled, my strength hath left me, * and the light of my eyes itself is not with me.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Ant. O Lord, * do not chastise me in thy wrath.
Ant. Inténde in adiutórium meum, * Dómine, virtus salútis meæ.
Psalmus 37(12-23) [8]
37:12 Amíci mei, et próximi mei * advérsum me appropinquavérunt, et stetérunt.
37:13 Et qui iuxta me erant, de longe stetérunt: * et vim faciébant qui quærébant ánimam meam.
37:14 Et qui inquirébant mala mihi, locúti sunt vanitátes: * et dolos tota die meditabántur.
37:15 Ego autem tamquam surdus non audiébam: * et sicut mutus non apériens os suum.
37:16 Et factus sum sicut homo non áudiens: * et non habens in ore suo redargutiónes.
37:17 Quóniam in te, Dómine, sperávi: * tu exáudies me, Dómine, Deus meus.
37:18 Quia dixi: Nequándo supergáudeant mihi inimíci mei: * et dum commovéntur pedes mei, super me magna locúti sunt.
37:19 Quóniam ego in flagélla parátus sum: * et dolor meus in conspéctu meo semper.
37:20 Quóniam iniquitátem meam annuntiábo: * et cogitábo pro peccáto meo.
37:21 Inimíci autem mei vivunt, et confirmáti sunt super me: * et multiplicáti sunt qui odérunt me iníque.
37:22 Qui retríbuunt mala pro bonis, detrahébant mihi: * quóniam sequébar bonitátem.
37:23 Ne derelínquas me, Dómine, Deus meus: * ne discésseris a me.
37:23 Inténde in adiutórium meum, * Dómine, Deus, salútis meæ.

Ant. Inténde in adiutórium meum, * Dómine, virtus salútis meæ.
Ant. Attend unto my help, * O Lord, the God of my salvation.
Psalm 37(12-23) [8]
37:12 My friends and my neighbours *have drawn near, and stood against me.
37:13 And they that were near me stood afar off: * and they that sought my soul used violence.
37:14 And they that sought evils to me spoke vain things, * and studied deceits all the day long.
37:15 But I, as a deaf man, heard not: * and as a dumb man not opening his mouth.
37:16 And I became as a man that heareth not: * and that hath no reproofs in his mouth.
37:17 For in thee, O Lord, have I hoped: * thou wilt hear me, O Lord my God.
37:18 For I said: Lest at any time my enemies rejoice over me: * and whilst my feet are moved, they speak great things against me.
37:19 For I am ready for scourges: * and my sorrow is continually before me.
37:20 For I will declare my iniquity: * and I will think for my sin.
37:21 But my enemies live, and are stronger than I: * and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
37:22 They that render evil for good, have detracted me, * because I followed goodness.
37:23 Forsake me not, O Lord my God: * do not thou depart from me.
37:23 Attend unto my help, * O Lord, the God of my salvation.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Ant. Attend unto my help, * O Lord, the God of my salvation.
Ant. Ámove, Dómine, * a me plagas tuas.
Psalmus 38 [9]
38:1 Dixi: Custódiam vias meas: * ut non delínquam in lingua mea.
38:2 Pósui ori meo custódiam, * cum consísteret peccátor advérsum me.
38:3 Obmútui, et humiliátus sum, et sílui a bonis: * et dolor meus renovátus est.
38:4 Concáluit cor meum intra me: * et in meditatióne mea exardéscet ignis.
38:5 Locútus sum in lingua mea: * Notum fac mihi, Dómine, finem meum.
38:6 Et númerum diérum meórum quis est: * ut sciam quid desit mihi.
38:7 Ecce mensurábiles posuísti dies meos: * et substántia mea tamquam níhilum ante te.
38:8 Verúmtamen univérsa vánitas, * omnis homo vivens.
38:9 Verúmtamen in imágine pertránsit homo: * sed et frustra conturbátur.
38:10 Thesaurízat: * et ignórat cui congregábit ea.
38:11 Et nunc quæ est exspectátio mea? Nonne Dóminus? * Et substántia mea apud te est.
38:12 Ab ómnibus iniquitátibus meis érue me: * oppróbrium insipiénti dedísti me.
38:13 Obmútui, et non apérui os meum, quóniam tu fecísti: * ámove a me plagas tuas.
38:14 A fortitúdine manus tuæ ego deféci in increpatiónibus: * propter iniquitátem corripuísti hóminem.
38:15 Et tabéscere fecísti sicut aráneam ánimam eius: * verúmtamen vane conturbátur omnis homo.
38:16 Exáudi oratiónem meam, Dómine, et deprecatiónem meam: * áuribus pércipe lácrimas meas.
38:17 Ne síleas: quóniam ádvena ego sum apud te, et peregrínus, * sicut omnes patres mei.
38:18 Remítte mihi, ut refrígerer priúsquam ábeam, * et ámplius non ero.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Ámove, Dómine, * a me plagas tuas.
Ant. Remove, O Lord, * thy scourges from me.
Psalm 38 [9]
38:1 I said: I will take heed to my ways: * that I sin not with my tongue.
38:2 I have set guard to my mouth, * when the sinner stood against me.
38:3 I was dumb, and was humbled, and kept silence from good things: * and my sorrow was renewed.
38:4 My heart grew hot within me: * and in my meditation a fire shall flame out.
38:5 I spoke with my tongue: * O Lord, make me know my end.
38:6 And what is the number of my days: * that I may know what is wanting to me.
38:7 Behold thou hast made my days measurable: * and my substance is as nothing before thee.
38:8 And indeed all things are vanity: * every man living.
38:9 Surely man passeth as an image: * yea, and he is disquieted in vain.
38:10 He storeth up: * and he knoweth not for whom he shall gather these things.
38:11 And now what is my hope? Is it not the Lord? * And my substance is with thee.
38:12 Deliver thou me from all my iniquities: * thou hast made me a reproach to the fool.
38:13 I was dumb, and I opened not my mouth, because thou hast done it: * remove thy scourges from me.
38:14 The strength of thy hand hath made me faint in rebukes: * thou hast corrected man for iniquity.
38:15 And thou hast made his soul to waste away like a spider: * surely in vain is any man disquieted.
38:16 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and my supplication: * give ear to my tears.
38:17 Be not silent: for I am a stranger with thee, * and a sojourner as all my fathers were.
38:18 O forgive me, that I may be refreshed, before I go hence, * and be no more.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Ant. Remove, O Lord, * thy scourges from me.
V. Deus, ne síleas a me, remítte mihi.
R. Quóniam íncola ego sum apud te et peregrínus.
V. O Lord, be not thou silent, forgive me.
R. For I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner.
Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris:
V. Et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem:
R. Sed líbera nos a malo.
Absolutio. Ipsius pietas et misericordia nos adiuvet, qui cum Patre et Spiritu Sancto vivit et regnat in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
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.

Lesson from the book of Judith
Jdt 8:1-4

2 And her husband was Manasses, who died in the time of the barley harvest:
3 For he was standing over them that bound sheaves in the field and the heat came upon his head, and he died in Bethulia his own city, and was buried there with his fathers.
4 And Judith his relict was a widow now three years and six months.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.

* He despiseth us not, neither putteth He away His salvation from our nation.
V. His mercy let us seek with tears, and humble our souls before Him.
R. He despiseth us not, neither putteth He away His salvation from our nation.

Idt 8:5-8
5 Et in superioribus domus suae fecit sibi secretum cubiculum, in quo cum puellis suis clausa morabatur.
6 Et habens super lumbos suos cilicium, ieiunabat omnibus diebus vitae suae, praeter sabbata et neomenias et festa domus Israël.
7 Erat autem eleganti aspectu nimis, cui vir suus reliquerat divitias multas, et familiam copiosam, ac possessiones armentis boum, et gregibus ovium plenas.
8 Et erat haec in omnibus famosissima, quoniam timebat Dominum valde, nec erat qui loqueretur de illa verbum malum.
Idt 8:9-11
9 Haec itaque cum audisset quoniam Ozias promisisset quod transacto quinto die traderet civitatem, misit ad presbyteros Chabri et Charmi.
10 Et venerunt ad illam, et dixit illis: Quod est hoc verbum, in quo consensit Ozias, ut tradat civitatem Assyriis si intra quinque dies non venerit vobis adiutorium?
11 Et qui estis vos, qui tentatis Dominum?
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Domine Deus, qui conteris bella ab initio, eleva brachium tuum super Gentes, quae cogitant servis tuis mala:
* Et dextera tua glorificetur in nobis.
V. Allide virtutem eorum in virtute tua: cadat robur eorum in iracundia tua.

Jdt 8:5-8
5 And she made herself a private chamber in the upper part of her house, in which she abode shut up with her maids.
6 And she wore haircloth upon her loins, and fasted all the days of her life, except the sabbaths, and new moons, and the feasts of the house of Israel.
7 And she was exceedingly beautiful, and her husband left her great riches, and very many servants, and large possessions of herds of oxen, and flocks of sheep.
8 And she was greatly renowned among all, because she feared the Lord very much, neither was there any one that spoke an ill word of her.
Jdt 8:9-11
9 When therefore she had heard that Ozias had promised that he would deliver up the city after the fifth day, she sent to the ancients Chabri and Charmi.
10 And they came to her, and she said to them: What is this word, by which Ozias hath consented to give up the city to the Assyrians, if within five days there come no aid to us?
11 And who are you that tempt the Lord?
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O Lord God, That breakest the battles from of old, lift up thine arm against the Gentiles, that devise evil against thy servants.
* And let thy right hand be glorified in us.

Hierónymus, Stridóne in Dalmátia natus, Romæ adoléscens est baptizátus, et liberálibus disciplínis a Donáto et áliis viris doctíssimis erudítus. Religiónis causa, totam lustrávit Palæstínam. Deínde secéssit in vastam Syriæ solitúdinem, ubi quadriénnium in lectióne divinórum librórum cælestísque beatitúdinis contemplatióne consúmpsit. Présbyter a Paulíno epíscopo Antiochíæ factus et in Palæstínam revérsus, Béthlehem ad Christi Dómini præsépe cæléstem quamdam vitæ ratiónem instítuit, et diáboli insídias piis labóribus ac perpétua lectióne et scriptióne superávit. Tamquam ad oráculum, úndique ad ipsum divínæ Scriptúræ quæstiónes explicándæ referebántur. Illum Dámasus Románus Póntifex et sanctus Augustínus de locis Scriptúræ difficíllimis sæpe consuluérunt propter eius singulárem doctrínam et linguæ non solum Latínæ et Græcæ, sed Hebráice étiam et Chaldáicæ intelligéntiam. Vetus Testaméntum ex Hebræo convértit; novum, iussu Dámasi, Græcæ fídei rédditum, magna étiam ex parte explicávit. In summa senectúte migrávit in cælum. Eius corpus, ad Béthlehem sepúltum, póstea Romam delátum, in basílica sanctæ Maríæ maióris cónditum fuit.

Reading 3
Jerome, born at Stridon in Dalmatia, was baptized at Rome as a young man and studied the liberal arts with Donatus and other very learned men. In the service of religion, he travelled all over Palestine. Then he retired to the vast Syrian desert, where he spent four years in reading sacred Scripture and in the contemplation of the blessedness of heaven. Ordained priest by Paulinus, Bishop of Antioch, he went back to Palestine. There, near the crib of the Lord Christ in Bethlehem, he led a life patterned after that of heaven itself. He conquered the wiles of the devil with works of devotion and continual reading and writing. Questions on Holy Scripture were referred for explanation to him as to an oracle, being sent to him from all over the world. Pope Damasus and St. Augustine often consulted him on difficult passages in Scripture because of his singular learning and his knowledge not only of Latin and Greek but also of Hebrew and Chaldaic. He translated the Old Testament from the Hebrew; and by command of Pope Damasus, he revised the translation of the New Testament to make it faithful to the Greek text and explained a great part of it. In extreme old age, he made the journey to heaven. His body was buried at Bethlehem and later taken to Rome and buried in the Basilica of St. Mary Major.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.


Te Deum
We praise thee, O God, * we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.
All the earth doth worship thee, * the Father everlasting.
To thee all Angels cry aloud, * the Heavens, and all the Powers therein.
To thee Cherubim and Seraphim * continually do cry.

(bow head) Holy, Holy, Holy * Lord God of Sabaoth;

Heaven and earth are full * of the Majesty of thy glory.
The glorious company of the Apostles * praise thee.
The goodly fellowship of the Prophets * praise thee.
The noble army of Martyrs * praise thee.
The holy Church throughout all the world * doth acknowledge thee;
The Father, * of an infinite Majesty.
Thine honourable, true, * and only Son;
Also the Holy Ghost, * the Comforter.
Thou art the King of Glory, * O Christ.
Thou art the everlasting * Son of the Father.

During the following verse all make a profound bow:
When thou tookest upon thee to deliver man, * thou didst not abhor the Virgin's womb.

When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death, * thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God, * in the glory of the Father.
We believe that thou shalt come * to be our Judge.

Kneel for the following verse
We therefore pray thee, help thy servants, * whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious Blood.

Make them to be numbered with thy Saints, * in glory everlasting.
O Lord, save thy people, * and bless thine heritage.
Govern them, * and lift them up for ever.
Day by day * we magnify thee;

During the following verse, by local custom, all make a profound bow.
And we worship thy Name * ever, world without end.

Vouchsafe, O Lord, to keep us * this day without sin.
O Lord, have mercy upon us, * have mercy upon us.
O Lord, let thy mercy lighten upon us, * as our trust is in thee.
O Lord, in thee have I trusted, * let me never be confounded.
