Lectio 4
Thomas Apostolus, qui et Didymus, Galilaeus, post acceptum Spiritum Sanctum in multas provincias profectus est ad praedicandum Christi Evangelium: Parthis, Medis, Persis, Hyrcanis, et Bactris christianae fidei et vitae praecepta tradidit. Postremo ad Indos se conferens, eos in christiana religione erudivit. Qui ad extremum, vitae doctrinaeque sanctitate, et miraculorum magnitudine, cum ceteris omnibus sui admirationem, et Iesu Christi amorem commovisset illius gentis regem, idolorum cultorem, magis ad iram accendit: cuius sententia condemnatus, telisque confossus, Calaminae apostolatus honorem martyrii corona decoravit.
Tu autem

R. Vidi coniunctos viros, habéntes splendidas vestes, et Ángelus Dómini locútus est ad me, dicens:
* Isti sunt viri sancti facti amíci Dei.
V. Vidi Angelum Dei fortem, volantem per médium cælum, voce magna clamántem et dicéntem.
R. Isti sunt viri sancti facti amíci Dei.

Reading 4
The Apostle Thomas, called Didymus, or the Twin, was a Galilean. After the descent of the Holy Ghost, he went into many provinces to preach Christ's Gospel. He gave knowledge of the rules of Christian faith and life to the Parthians, Medes, Persians, Hyrcanians, and Bactrians. He went last to the East Indies. Here he provoked the anger of one of the idolatrous kings, because the holiness of his life and teaching, and the number of his miracles, drew many after him, and brought them to the love of Christ Jesus. He was therefore condemned, and slain with lances. He crowned the dignity of the Apostleship with the glory of martyrdom, on the Coromandel coast, not far from Madras.
But Thou Lord

R. I saw men standing together, clad in shining raiment, and the Angel of the Lord spake unto me, saying
* These men are holy, for they are the friends of God.
V. I saw a strong Angel of God fly into the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice
R. These men are holy, for they are the friends of God.
