Ss. Innocentium ~ Duplex II. classis


  Rubens

Today is the feast of the Holy Innocents. I offer Lauds, but this time in the Divino Afflatu  version (from divinumofficium,) for those who would like to compare. This is the version I usually pray and I would welcome any comments on the virtues or drawbacks compared to the 1960 version.


Incipit
Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris: et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem: sed líbera nos a malo. Amen.
Ave Maria, gratia plena; Dominus tecum: benedícta tu in muliéribus, et benedíctus fructus ventris tui Jesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatóribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostræ. Amen.

V. Deus in adjutórium meum inténde.
R. Dómine, ad adjuvándum 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.

Start
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation: But deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace; The Lord is with thee; Blessed art thou amongst women, And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

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.

All glory, as is ever meet
To Father and to Paraclete.
