Is. 45:8; Ps. 18:2

Rorate, coeli, desuper, et nubes pluant iustum: aperiatur terra, et germinet Salvatorem.(Psalm) Coeli enarrant gloriam Dei: et opera manuum eius annuntiat fimamentum. Gloria Patri. Rorate, coeli...

  Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just: let the earth be opened and bud forth a Savior. (Psalm) The heavens show forth the glory of God: and the firmament declareth the work of His hands. Glory to the Father. Drop down dew, ye heavens...
Oremus.   Let us pray
Flectamus genua   Let us Kneel
Levate   Arise
Præsta, quæsumus, omnípotens Deus: ut redemptiónis nostræ ventúra solémnitas, et præséntis nobis vitæ subsídia cónferat, et ætérnæ beatitúdinis præmia largiátur. Per Dóminum nostrum   Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that the coming solemnity of our redemption may both confer upon us assistance in this present life and bestow the rewards of everlasting blessedness. Through our Lord.
Is. 2:2-5
In diébus iilis: Dixit Isaías prophéta: Erit In novíssimis diébus præparátus mons domus Dómini in vértice móntium, et elevábitur super colles, et fluent ad eum om­nes gentes. Et ibunt pópuli multi, et dicent: Veníte et ascendámus ad montem Dómini, et ad domum Dei Jacob, et docébit nos vias suas, et ambulábimus in sémitis ejus: quia de Sion exíbit lex, et verbum Dómini de Jerúsalem. Et judicábit 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 prælium. Domus Jacob venite, et ambulémus in lúmine Dómini Dei nostri.   In those days, the prophet Isaias said: In the last days the mountain of the Lord shall be prepared on the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go, and say: Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob, and He will teach us His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall come forth from Sion, and the word fo the Lord from Jerusalem. And He shall judge the Gentiles and rebuke many people: and they shall turn their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into sickles. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation: neither shall they be exercised any more to war. O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord our God.\
Ps. 23:7,3,4
Tollite portas, principes, vestras: et elevamini portae aeternales: et introibit Rex gloriae. Quis ascendit in montem Domini? aut quis stabit in loco sancto eius? Innocens manibus et mundo corde.   Lift up your gates, O ye princes: and be ye lifted up, O eternal gates: and the King of glory shall enter in. Who shall ascend into the mountain of the Lord? or who shall stand in His holy place? The innocent in hands and clean of heart.
V. Dominus vobiscum   V. The Lord be with you.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.   R. And with thy spirit.
Festina, quæsumus, Dómine, ne tardáveris, et auxílium nobis supérnæ virtútis impénde: ut advéntus tui consolatiónibus sublevéntur, qui in tua pietáte confídunt: Qui vivis et regnas. Hasten, we beseech Thee, O Lord, tarry not: and grant us the help of Thy heavenly power, that they who trust in Thy loving kindness may be relieved by the consolations of Thy coming. Who livest and reignest.
Is. 7:10-15
In diébus illis: Locútus est Dóminus ad Achaz, dicens: Pete tibi signum a Dómino Deo tuo in profún­dum inférni, sive in excélsum supra. Et dixit Achaz: Non petam, et non tentábo Dóminum. Et dixit: Audíte ergo domus David: Numquid parum vobis est, moléstos esse homínibus, quia molésti estis et Deo me? Propter hoc dabit Dóminus ipse vobis signum. Ecce virgo concípiet, et páriet fílium, et vocábitur nomen ejus Emmánuel. Bu­tyrum et mel cómedet, ut sciat reprobáre malum, et elígere bonum.   In those days the Lord spoke to Achaz, saying: Ask thee a sign of the Lord thy God, either unto the depth of hell, or unto the height above. And Achaz said: I will not ask, and I will not tempt the Lord. And He said: Hear ye therefore, O house of David: Is it a small thing for you to be grievous to men, that you are grievous to my God also? Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign. Behold a Virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and His Name shall be called Emmanuel. He shall eat butter and honey, that He may know to refuse the evil, and to choose the good.
Ps. 144:18,21
Prope est Dominus omnibus invocantibus eum, omnibus qui invocant eum in veritate. Laudem Domini loquetur os meum: et benedicat omnis caro nomen sanctum eius.   The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth. My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless His holy Name.
Lk. 1:26-38
In illo témpore: Missus est Angelus Gábriël Deo in civitátem Galilææ, cui nomen Názareth, ad Vírginem desponsátam viro, cui nomen erat Joseph, de domo David, et nomen Vírginis María. Et ingréssus Angelus ad eam, dixit: Ave, grátia plena: Dóminus tecum: benedícta tu in muliéribus. Quæ cum audisset, turbáta est in sermóne ejus: et cogitábat qualis esset ista salutátio. Et ait Angelus ei: Ne tímeas Maria, invenístif enim grátiam apud Deum: ecce concípies in útero, et paries fflium, et vocabis nomen ejus Jesum. Hie erit magnus, et Fílius Altíssimi vocábitur, et dabit ilis Dóminus Deus sedem David patris ejus: et regnábit in domo Jacob in ætérnum, et regni ejus non erit fìnis. Dixit autem Maria ad Angelum: Quómodo fiet istud, quóniam virum non cognósco? Et respóndens Angelus, dixit ei: Spíritus Sanc­tus supervéniet in te, et virtus Altíssimi obumbrábit tibi. Ideóque et quod nascétur ex te Sanctum, vocábitur Fílius Dei. Et ecce Elisabeth cognáta tua, et ipsa concépit ílium in senectúte sua: et hic mensis sextus est illi, quæ vocátur stérilis: quia non erit impossíbile apud Deum omne verbum. Dixit autem María: Ecce ancéflla Dóminf, fiat mihi secúndum verbum tuum.   At that time the Angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary. And the Angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace: the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. Who having heard, was troubled at his saying: and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be. And the Angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God: behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of David His father; and He shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever, and of His kingdom there shall be no end. And Mary said to the Angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man? And the Angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her that is called barren; because no work shall be impossible with God. And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done to me according to thy word.
Is. 35:4
Confortamini, et iam nolite timere: ecce enim Deus noster retribuet iudicium: ipse veniet ut salvos nos faciet.   Take courage, and now fear not: for behold our God will bring judgment: He Himself will come and will save us.
Accépta tibi sint, quæsumus, Dómine, nostra jejúnia: quæ et expiándo nos tua grátia dignos effíciant, et ad sempitérna promíssa perdúcant. Per Dóminum nostrum May our fasts, we beseech Thee, O Lord, be acceptable unto Thee, and by expiating our sins, make us worthy of Thy grace, and bring us to Thine everlasting promises. Through our Lord.
The Common Preface
Vere dignum et iustum est, aequum et salutare, nos tibi semper, et ubique gratias agere: Domine sancte, Pater omnipotens, aeterne Deus: per Christum Dominum nostrum. Per quem maiestatem tuam laudant Angeli, adorant Dominationes, tremunt Potestates. Coeli, coelorumque Virtutes, ac beata Seraphim socia exsultatione concelebrant. Cum quibus et nostras voces, ut admitti iubeas, 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 unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God, through Christ our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with them, we entreat Thee, that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted, while we say in lowly praise:
Is. 7:14
Ecce Virgo concipiet et pariet Filium: et vocabitur nomen eius Emmanuel.   Behold a Virgin shall conceive and bear a Son: and His name shall be called Emmanuel.
Salutáris tui, Dómine, múnere satiáti, súpplices deprecámur: ut, cujus lætámur gustu, renovémur efféctu. Per Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum Fílium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat,   O Lord, we humbly beseech Thee, that being filled with the gift of Thy salvation, we may be renewed by the effect of that which we taste with joy. Through our Lord.
