Ps. 118:75,120,1
Cognovie, Domine, quis aequitas judicia tua, et in veritate tua humiliasti me: confige timore tuo carnes meas, a mandatis tuis timui. Alleluia, Alleluia (Psalm) Beati immaculati in via: qui ambulanti in via: qui ambulant in lege Domini. Gloria Patri. Me expectave runt...    I know, O Lord, that Thy judgments are equity, and in Thy truth Thou hast humbled me: pierce Thou may flesh with Thy fear, I am afraid of Thy judgments. Alleluia, alleluia(Psalm) Blessed are the undefiled in the way; who walk in the law of the Lord.

Deus, noerentium consolator et int e speantium salus quio beatae Monicae pias lacrimas in converione filii sui Augustini misericorditer suscepisti; da nobis utriusque interventu, peccata nostra deplorare, et gratiae tuae in dulgentiam invenire. Per Dominnum nostrum.

Through our Lord.
I Tim 5:3-10
Carissime: Viduas honora quae vere vidua sunt. Si qua autem vidua filios, aut nepotres havet, discat primum domum suam regere, et muruam vicem reddere parentibus: hoc enim accpetum est coram Deo. quae autem ver vidua est, et desolata, speret in Deum, et instet obsecrationibus, et orationibus nocte, ac die. Nam quae in deliciis est, vivens mortua est. Et hoc praceipe, ut irreprehensibiles sint. Si quis autem suorum, et maxime domesticorum curam no havet fidem negavit, et est infideli deterior. Vidua eligatur non minus sexaginta annorum, quae fuerit unius viri uxor, in operibus bonis testimonimum habens, si filios educavit, si hospitio recepit, si anctorum pedes lavit, si tribulationem patietntibus subministravit, si omne opus honum subsecuta est.   Dearly beloved: Honor widows, that are widows indeed. But if any widow have children, or grandchildren, let her learn first to govern her own house, and to make a return of duty to her parents: for this is acceptable before God. But she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, let her trust in God, and continue in supplications and prayers night and day. For she that liveth in pleasures, is dead while she is living. And this give in charge, that they may be blameless. But if any man have not care of his own, and especially of those of his house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. Let a widow be chosen of no less than threescore years of age, who hath been the wife of one husband. Having testimony for her good works, if she have brought up children, if she have received to harbour, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have ministered to them that suffer tribulation, if she have diligently followed every good work.

Lk. 7:11-16
In illo tempore: Ibat Jesus in civitatem, quae vocatur Naim: et ibant cum eo discipuli ejus, et turba copiosa, Cum autem appropinquaret protae civitatis, ecce defunctus efferebatur filius unicus matris suae: et hac vidua erat: et turba civitatis multa cum illa. Quam cum illa. Quam cum vidisset Dominus, misericordia motus super eam dixit illi: Noli flere. Et accessit, et tetigit loculum. (Hi autem qui portabant, steterunt). Et ait Adolescens, tibi dico, surge. Et resedit qui erat mortuus, et coepit laqui. Et dedit illum matri suae. Accepit autem omnes timor: et magnificabant Deum, discentes: Quia propheta magnus surrexit in nobis: et quia Deus visitavit plebem suam. At that time, Jesus went into a city that is called Naim; and there went with him his disciples, and a great multitude. And when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold a dead man was carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow: and a great multitude of the city was with her. Whom when the Lord had seen, being moved with mercy towards her, he said to her: Weep not. And he came near and touched the bier. And they that carried it, stood still. And he said: Young man, I say to thee, arise. And he that was dead, sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother. And there came a fear on them all: and they glorified God, saying: A great prophet is risen up among us: and, God hath visited his people.
Ps. 44:3
Diffusa est gratia in labiis tuis: propterea benedixit te Deus in aeternum, et in saeculum saeculi. Alleluia.   Grace is poured abroad in thy lips: therefore hath God blessed thee for ever. Alleluia.
Accepta tibi sit, Domine, sacratae plebis oblatio pro tuorum honore Sanctorum: quorum se meritis, de tribulatione percepisse cognoscit auxilium. Per Dominum nostrum. May this sacrifice of Thy dedicated people be accepted by Thee, O Lord, in honor of Thy Saints: to whose merits we attribute the help afforded us in tribulation. Through our Lord.
Preface for Easter
Vere dignum et iustum est, aequum et salutare, te quidem Domine omni tempore, sed in hoc potissimum die gloriosis praedicare, cum Pascha nostrum immolatus est Christus. Ipse enim verus est Angus qui abstulit peccata mundi. Qui mortem nostram moriendo destruxit, et vitam resurgendo reparavit. Et ideo cum Angelis et Archangelis, cum Thronis et Dominationibus, cumque omnia milita coelestis exercitus, hymnum gloriae tuae canimus, sine fine dicentes:   It it truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, at all times to praise Thee, O Lord, but more gloriously especially this day when Christ our Pasch was sacrificed. For He is the Lamb Who hath taken away the sins of the world: Who by dying hath destroyed our death: and by rising again hath restored us to life. And therefore with Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dominations, and with all the hosts of the heavenly army, we sing the hymn of Thy glory, evermore saying:
Ps. 44:8
Dilexisti justitiam, et odisti iniquitatem:  et odisti iniquitatem: propterea unxit te Deus, Deus tuus, oleo laetitiae prae consortibus tuis.Alleluia.   Thou hast loved justice and hated iniquity: therefore God, thy God, hat anointed thee with the oil of gladness above they fellows.Alleluia.
Satiasti, Domine, familiam tuam muneribus sacris: ejus, quaesumus, semper interventione nos refove, cujus solemnia celbramus. Per Dominum nostrum.   Thou hast filled Thy household, O Lord, with holy gifts: do Thou cherish us always, through the intercession of her whose festival we are keeping. Through our Lord.
