Ps. 43:23-26,2

Exsurge, quare obdormis, Domine? exsurge, et ne repellas in finem. Quare faviem tuam avertis, oblivisceris tribulationem nostram? adhaesit in terra venter noster: exsurge, Domine, adjuva nos, et libera nos. (Psalm)Deus, auribus nostris audivimus: patres nostris annuntiaverunt nobis. Gloria Patri. Exsurge...

  Arise, why sleepest Thou, O Lord? arise, and cast us not off to the end. Why turnest Thou Thy face away, and forgettest our trouble? our belly hath cleaved to the earth: arise, O Lord, help us and deliver us. (Psalm) We have heard, O God, with our ears: our fathers have declared to us. Glory be to the Father. Arise...

 Deus, qui conspicis, quia ex nulla nostra actione confidimus: concede propitius; ut contra adversa omnia, Doctoris gentium protectione muniamur. Per Dominum nostrum.

O God, who seest that we put not our trust in any thing that we do: mercifully grant that by the protection of the Doctor of the Gentiles we may be defended against all adversities. Through our Lord.
II Cor. 11:19-33; 12:1-9

Fratres: Libenter suffertis insipientes: cum sitis ipsi sapientes. Sustinetis enim si quis vos in servitutem redigit, quis vos in servitutem redigit, si uis devorat, si quis accipit, si quis extollitur, si quis in faciem vos caedit. Secundum ignobiliatatem dico, quasi nos infirmi fuermus in hac parte. In quo quis audet (in insipientia dico) audio et ego. Hebraei sunt, et ego: Israeli sunt, et ego: Semen Abrahae sunt, et ego: Ministri Christi sunt (ut minus sapiens dico) plus ego: in laboribus plurimis, in carceribus abundantius, in plagis supra modum, in mortibus frequenter. A Judaeis quinquies quadragenas, una minus, accepi. Ter virgis caesus sum, semel lapidatus sum, ter naufragium feci, nocte et die in profundo maris fui: in itinerbus saepe periculis fluminum, periculis latorum, perciculis ex genere, periculis ex gentibus, periculis in civitate, periculis in solitudine, periculis in mari, periculis in falsis fratribus: in abore et aerumma, in vigiliis multis, in fame et siti, in jejuniis multis, in frigore et nuditate: praeter illa quae extrinsecus sunt, instantia mea quotidiana,, sollicitudo omnium Ecclesiarum. Quis infirmatur, et ego non infirmor? quis scandalizatur, et ego non uror? Si gloriari Oportet: quae infirmiatis meae sunt, gloriabor. Deus et Pater Domini nostri Jesu Christi, qui est benedictus in saecula, scit quod non mentior. Damasci praepositus gentis. Aretae regi, custodiebatr civitatem Damascenorum, ut me comprehenderet: et per fenestram in sporta dimissus sum per murum, et sic effugi manus ejus. Si gloriari oporet (non expedit quidem), veniam autem ad visions, et revelations Domini. Scio hominem in Christo ante annos quatuordecim, sive in corpus nescio, Desu scit, raptum hujusmodi usque ad tertium caelum. Et scio hujusmodi hominem, sive in corpore, sive extra corpus nescio, Deus scit: quoniam raptus est in paradisum, et audivit arcane verba, quae non licet homini loqui. Pro hujusmodi gloriabor: pro me autem Nihil gloriabor, nisi in infirmitatibus meis. Na, et si voluero gloriari, non ero insipiens: veritatemm enim dicam: parco autem, ne quis me existimet supra id quod videt in me, aut aliquid audit ex me. Et ne magnitude, revelationem extollat me, datus est mihi simulus carnis meae, angelus satanae, qui me colaphizet.:Propter quod ter Dominum rogavi, ut discedderet a me: et dixit mihi: Sufficit tibi gratia mea: nam virtus in infirmatitate perficitur. Libenter igituor gloriabor in infirmantatibus meis, ut inhabiet in me virtus Christi.

  Brethren, You gladly suffer the foolish: whereas yourselves are wise. For you suffer if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take from you, if a man be lifted up, if a man strike you on the face. I speak according to dishonor, as if we had been weak in the past. Wherein if any man dare (I speak foolishly), I dare also. They are Hebrews, so am I. They are Israelites, so am I. They are the seed of Abraham, so am I. They are the ministers of Christ (I speak as one less wise), I am more: in many more labors, in prisons more frequently, in stripes above measure, in deaths often. Of the Jews five times did I receive forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once I was stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I was in the depth of the sea: in journeying often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils from my own nation, in perils from the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils from false brethren: in labor and painfulness, in much watching, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness; besides those things which are without, my daily instance, the solicitude for all the Churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is scandalized, and I am not on fire? If I must needs glroy, I will glory of the things that concern my infirmity. The God and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed for ever, knoweth that I lie not. At Damascus the governor of the nation under Aretas the king, guarded the city of the Damascenes, to apprehend me: and through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and so escaped his hands. If I must glory (it is not expedient indeed) but I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I know a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, whether in the body I know not, or out of the body, I know not, God knoweth, such a one caught up to the third heaven. And I know such a man, whether in the body or out of the body, I know not, God knoweth: that he was caught up unto paradise, and heard secret words which it is not granted to man to utter. For such a one I will glory: but for myself I will glory nothing but in my infirmities. For though I should have a mind to glory, I shall not be foolish: for I will say the truth: but I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth in me, or anything he heareth from me. And lest the greatness of the revelations should exalt me, there was given me a sting of my flesh, and angel of Satan, to buffet me. For which thing, thrice I besought the Lord that it might depart from me. And He said to me: my grace is sufficient for thee: for power is made perfect in infirmity. Gladly therefore will I glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
Ps. 82:19,14
Sciant gentes, quoniam nomen tibi Deus: tu solus Altissimus super omnem terram. Deus meus, pone illos ut rotam, et sicut stipulam ante faciem venti.   Let the Gentiles know that God is Thy Name: Thou alone art the Most High over all the earth. O my God, make them like a wheel, and as stubble before the wind.
Ps. 129:1-4
Commovisti, Domine, terram, et conturbasti eam. Sana contritiones ejus, quia mota est. Ut fugiant a facie arcus: ut liberentur electi tui.   Thou hast moved the earth, O Lord, and hast troubled it. Heal Thou the breaches thereof, for it has been moved. That they may flee from before the bow: that Thine elect may be delivered.
Mt. 20:1-16
Sequentia sancti Evangelii secundum Lucam. In illo tempore: Cum turba plurima convenirent, et de civitatibus properarent ad Jesum, dixit per similtudinem: 'Exiit, qui seminat, seminare, semen suum: et dum seminat, aliud cecidit secus viam, et conculcatum, est, et volucres caeli comederunt ilud. Et aliud cecidit supra petram: et natum aruit, quia non habebat humorem. Et aliud cecidit inter spinas, et simul exorate spinae credidit in terram bonam: et ortum fecit fructum centuplum.' Haec dicens, clamabar: 'Qui habet aures audiendi, audiat.' Interrogabant autem eum discipuli ejus, quae esset haec parabola. Quibus ipse dixit: 'Vobis datum est nosse mysterium regni Dei, ceteris autem in parabolis: ut videntes non videant, et audientes non intelligent. Est autem haec parabola: Semen est verbum Dei. Qui autem secus viam hi sunt qui audiunt: deinde venit diabolus, et tollit verbum de corde eorum, ne credentes salvi fiant. Nam qui supra petram. qui cum audierint, cum gaudio suscipiunt verbum: et hi radices non habent: qui ad tempus credunt, et in tempore atentationis recedunt. Qod autem in spinas cecidit: hi sunt, qui auderunt, et a solicitudinibus, et divitiis, et voluptatibus vitae Euntes, suffocantur, et non referent fructum. Quod autem in bonam terram: hi sunt, qui in corde bono et optimo audientes verbum retinent, et fructum afferent in patientia.' At that time, when a very great multitude was gathered together and hastened out of the cities unto Jesus, He spoke by a similitude: The sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. And other some fell upon a rock: and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. And other some fell among thorns, and the thorns growing up with it choked it. And other some fell upon good ground: and being sprung up yielded fruit a hundredfold. Saying these things, He cried out: He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. And His disciples asked Him what this parable might be. To whom He said: To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God, but to the rest in parables: that seeing they may not see, and hearing may not understand. Now the parable is this. The seed is the word of God. And they by the wayside are they that hear: then the devil cometh and taketh the word out of their heart, lest believing they should be saved. Now they upon the rock are they who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no roots: for they believe for a while, and in time of temptation they fall away. And that which fell away among thorns are they who have heard and, going their way, are choked with the cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and yield no fruit. But on the good ground are they who in a good and perfect heart, hearing the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit in patience.
Ps. 16:5,6,7
Perfice gressus meos in semitis tuis, ut non moveantur vestigia mea: inclina aurem tuam, et exaudi verba mea: mirifica misericordias tuas, qui salvos facis sperantes in te, Domine.   Perfect Thou my goings in Thy paths, that my footsteps be not moved: incline Thine ear, and hear my works: show forth Thy wonderful mercies, Thou who savest them that trust in Thee, O Lord.
Oblatum tii, Domine, sacrificium vivificet nos semper, et muniat. Per Dominum nostrum. May the Sacrifice offered to Thee, O Lord, ever quicken us and protect us. Through our Lord.
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. 42:4
Introibo ad altare Dei, ad Deum qui laetificat juventutem meam. I will go in to the altar of God, to God who giveth joy to my youth.
Supplices te rogamus, Omnipotens Deus: ut quos tuis reficis sacramentis, tibi etiam placitis moribus dignanter deservire concedas. Per Dominum nostrum.   We humbly beseech Thee, almighty God, to grant that they whom Thou dost refresh with Thy Sacraments, may worthily serve Thee by lives well-pleasing to Thee. Through our Lord.
