Ecclus. 45:30, Ps. 131:1

Statuit ei Dominus testamentum pacis principem sanctorum et gentis suae ut sit illi in sacerdotium sui dignitas in aeternum (Psalm)canticum graduum memento Domine David et omnis mansuetudinis eius Gloria Patri.  Statuit ei Dominus...

  The Lord made to him a covenant of peace, to be the prince of the sanctuary, and of his people, that the dignity of priesthood should be to him and to his seed for ever.(Psalm) O Lord, remember David, and all his meekness. Glory be to the Father. The Lord made to him....
Infirmitatem nostram respice, omnpotens Deus: et, quia pondus propriae actionis gravat beati Timothy Martyris tui atque Pontifcis, intercessio gloriosa nos protegat. Per Dominum nostrum.

Look down upon our weakness, almighty God; and since the weight of our deeds bears us down, may the glorious intercession of Blessed Timothy, Thy Bishop and Martyr, protect us. Through our Lord.  Through our Lord.
I Tim. 6:11-16
Carissimie: Sectare justituam, pietatem, fidem, mansuetudinem. Certa bonum certamen fidei, apprehende vitam aeternam, in qua vocatus es, et confessus bonam confessionem coram multis testibus. Praecipio tibi coram Deo, qui vivificat omnia, et Christo Jesus, qui testimonium reddidit sub Pontio Pilato, bonnam confessionem: ut serves mandatum sine macula, irreprehensibil usque in advemtum, Domini nostri Jesu Christi, quem suis temporibus ostendet beatus, et solus potens, Rex regum, et Dominus dominantium: qui solus habet immortalitatem, et lucem inhavitat inaccessibilem: quem, nullus hominum vidit sed nec videre potest: cui honor et imperium sempiternum. Amen.

  Dearly beloved, Follow after justice, godliness, faith, charity, patience, mildness. Fight the good fight of faith: lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art called, and hast confessed a good confession before many witnesses. I charge thee before God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who gave testimony under Pontius Pilate, a good confession, That thou keep the commandment without spot, blameless, unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, Which in his times he shall shew who is the Blessed and only Mighty, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, and inhabiteth light inaccessible, whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and empire everlasting. Amen.
Ps. 88:21-23
 Inveni David servum meum in oleo sancto meo linui eum manus enim mea auxiliabitur ei et brachium meum confirmabit eum nihil proficiet inimicus in eo et filius iniquitatis non adponet nocere eum.    I have found David my servant: with my holy oil I have anointed him. For my hand shall help him: and my arm shall strengthen him. The enemy shall have no advantage over him: nor the son of iniquity have power to hurt him.
Ps. 109:4
Alleluia, alleluia.  Iuravit Dominus et non paenitebit eum tu es sacerdos in aeternum secundum ordinem Melchisedech. Alleluia.   Alleluia, alleluia. The Lord hath sworn, and he will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech. Alleluia.
Lk. 14:26-33
(as far as the * sign)
In illo tempore: Dixit Jesus turbis: Si quis venit ad me, et non odit patrem suum, et matrem, et uxorem, et mattrem, et uxorem, et filios, et fratres, et sorores, adhue autem et animam suam, non protest meus esse discipulus. Et qui non bajulat crucem suam, et venit post me, non otest meus esse discipulus. Quis enim ex vobis volens turrim aedificare, non prius sedens computat sumptus qui necessarii sunt, si habeat ad perficiendum: ne, posteaquam posuerit fundamentum, et non potuerit perficere, omnes, quivident, incipiant illudere ei, dicentes: Quia hic homo coepit aedificare, et non potuit consummare? Aut quis rex iturus committere bellum adversus alium regem, non sedens prius cogitat, si possit cum decem millibus occurrere ei qui cum viginti millibus venit ad se? Alioquin, adhuc illo longe agente, legatioem mittens, rogat ea, quae pacis sunt. Sic ergo omnis ex vobis, qui non renuntiat omnibus, quae possidet, no potest meus ess discipulus. Bonum est sal. Si autem sal evanuerit, in quo condietur? Neque in terram, neque in sterquilinim utile est, sed foras mittetur. Qui habet aures audiendi, auduat.      At that time, If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not carry his cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you having a mind to build a tower, doth not first sit down, and reckon the charges that are necessary, whether he have wherewithal to finish it: Lest, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that see it begin to mock him, Saying: This man began to build, and was not able to finish. "Hate not"... The law of Christ does not allow us to hate even our enemies, much less our parents: but the meaning of the text is, that we must be in that disposition of soul, as to be willing to renounce, and part with every thing, how near or dear soever it may be to us, that would keep us from following Christ. Or what king, about to go to make war against another king, doth not first sit down, and think whether he be able, with ten thousand, to meet him that, with twenty thousand, cometh against him? Or else, whilst the other is yet afar off, sending an embassy, he desireth conditions of peace. So likewise every one of you that doth not renounce all that he possesseth, cannot be my disciple. * Salt is good. But if the salt shall lose its savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? It is neither profitable for the land nor for the dunghill, but shall be cast out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Ps. 85:25
  Veritas mea et misericordia mea cum ipso et in nomine meo exaltabitur cornu eius.     My truth and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
Hostias tibi, Dominie, beati Timothy, Martyris tui atque Pontificis dicatas meritis, benignus assume: et ad perpetugnus assume: et ad perpetuum nobis tribue provenire subsidium. Per Dominum nostrum. Graciously receive, O Lord, the sacrifice offered to Thee by the merits of blessed Timothy Thy Martyr and Bishop, and grant that it may be to us an unfailing help. Through our Lord.
The Common Preface
   Vere dignum et justum est, aequum et salutare, nos tibi semper, et ubique gratias agere: Domine sancte, Pater omnipotens, aeterne Deus: per Christum Dominum nostrum. Per quem majestatem tuam laudant Angeli, adorant Dominationes, tremunt Potestates. Coeli coelorumque Virtutes ac beata Seraphim socia exsultatione concelebrant. Cum quibus et nostras voces ut admitti jubeas, deprecamur supplici confessione dicentes:      It it truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks to Thee, holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal God, through Christ our Lord: through Whom Angels praise Thy Majesty, Dominations worship, Powers stand in awe: the Heavens and the host of heaven with blessed Seraphim unite, exult and celebrate and we entreat that Thou wouldst bid our voices also to be heard with theirs, singing with lowly praise:
Ps. 88:36,37-38
Semel iuravi in sancto meo si David mentiar semen eius in aeternum manebit et thronus eius sicut sol in conspectu meo et sicut luna perfecta in aeternum et testis in caelo fidelis diapsalma   Once have I sworn by my holiness: I will not lie unto David: His seed shall endure for ever. And his throne as the sun before me: and as the moon perfect for ever, and a faithful witness in heaven.
Refecti participatiione muneris sacri, quaesumus, Dominie Deus noster: ut, cugus exsequimur clultum, intercedente beato Timothy , Martyre tuo atque Pontifice, sentiamus effectum. Per Dominum nostrum.   Refreshed by partaking of Thy holy Gift, we beseech Thee, O Lord, our God, that through the intercession of Blessed Timothy, Thy Martyr and Bishop, we may perceive the fruit of the rite which we celebrate. Through our Lord.
