S. Johanni Apostoli ~ II. classis



Today is the Feast of St John the Apostle. There follows Lauds for today, from divinumofficium.

I have been concentrating on the Devine Office recently, and for very good reason! It is, of course, part of the Church's official prayer so one is united to the whole Church. Also, the daily recitation of the psalms, which lead to Christ, is a source of wonderful spriitual nourishment.


Incipit
V. Deus in adiutórium meum inténde.
R. Dómine, ad adiuvándum me festína.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Alleluia.


2
Start
V. O God come to my assistance;
R. O Lord, make haste to help 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.
Alleluia

Capitulum Hymnus Versus {ex Proprio Sanctorum}
Sir 15:1-2
Qui timet Deum, faciet bona: et qui continens est iustitiae, apprehendet illam, et obviabit illi quasi mater honorificata.
R. Deo grátias.

Hymnus
Exsultet orbis gaudiis:
Cælum resúltet láudibus:
Apostolórum glóriam
Tellus et astra concinunt.

Vos sæculórum iúdices,
Et vera mundi lúmina:
Votis precámur córdium,
Audíte voces súpplicum.

Qui templa cæli cláuditis,
Serásque verbo sólvitis,
Nos a reátu noxios
Solvi iubete, quæsumus.

Præcépta quorum protinus
Languor salusque sentiunt:
Sanáte mentes languidas:
Augete nos virtútibus.

Ut, cum redibit arbiter
In fine Christus sæculi,
Nos sempitérni gáudii
Concedat esse cómpotes.

* Patri, simúlque Fílio,
Tibique Sancte Spíritus,
Sicut fuit, sit iúgiter
Sæclum per omne glória.
Amen.

V. Hic est discipulus ille, qui testimonium perhibet de his.
R. Et scimus quia verum est testimonium eius

Chapter Hymn Verse {from the Proper of Saints}
Sir 15:1-2
He that feareth God, will do good: and he that possesseth justice, shall lay hold on her,And she will meet him as an honourable mother
R. Thanks be to God.

Hymn
Now let the earth with joy resound,
And heaven the chant re-echo round;
Nor heaven nor earth too high can raise
The great Apostles' glorious praise.

O ye who, throned in glory dread,
Shall judge the living and the dead,
Lights of the world forevermore!
To you the suppliant prayer we pour.

Ye close the sacred gates on high;
At your command apart they fly:
Oh! loose for us the guilty chain
We strive to break, and strive in vain.

Sickness and health your voice obey;
At your command they go or stay:
From sin's disease our souls restore;
In good confirm us more and more.

So when the world is at its end,
And Christ to judgement shall descend,
May we be called those joys to see
Prepared from all eternity.

* Praise to the Father, with the Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One;
As ever was in ages past,
And so shall be while ages last.
Amen.

V. This is that disciple who giveth testimony of these things.
R. And we know that his testimony is true.
