INCLINA DOMINE, Ambrosiano
Inclina, Dómine, aurem tuam ad me, et exáudi me: salvum fac servum tuum, Deus meus, sperántem in te: miserére mihi, Dómine, quóniam ad te clamávi tota die.
Psalm: 85: 4
Lætífica ánimam servi tui: Dómine, ánimam meam levávi.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
Let Thy continual pity, O Lord, cleanse and defend Thy Church: and because it cannot continue in safety without Thee, may it ever be governed by Thy goodness. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, Forever and ever. Amen.
EPISTLE: Galatians 5: 25, 26; 6: 1-10
Lesson from the Epistle of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Galatians. Brethren, if we live in the spirit, let us also walk in the spirit. Let us not be made desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. Brethren, and if a man be overtaken in any fault, you, who are spiritual instruct such a one in the spirit of meekness, considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye another’s burdens, and so you shall fulfill the law of Christ. For if any man think himself to be something, whereas he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. But let everyone prove his own work, and so he shall have glory in himself only, and not in another. For every-one shall bear his own burden. And let him that is instructed in the word, communicate to him that instructed him, in all good things. Be not deceived God is not mocked for what things a man shall sow, those also will he reap. For he that soweth in his flesh, of the flesh also shall reap corruption but he that soweth in the spirit, of the spirit shall reap life everlasting. And in doing good, let us not fail for in due time we shall reap, not failing. Therefore, whilst we have time, let us work for the good to all men, but especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
GRADUAL: Psalm 91: 2, 3
It is good to give praise to the Lord and to sing Thy name, O most High.
To show forth Thy mercy in the morning, and Thy truth in the night.
ALLELUIA: Psalm 114: 3
Alleluia, alleluia. For the Lord is a great God, and a great King over all the earth. Alleluia.
GOSPEL:Luke 7: 11-16
At that time, Jesus went into a city 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 much people of the city were with her. And when the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her, and 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 delivered him to his mother. And there came a fear on them all: and they glorified God, saying: A great Prophet is risen up amongst us, and God has visited His people.”
OFFERTORY: Psalm 39. 2, 3, 4
With expectation I have awaited for the Lord, and He hath had regard to me; and He heard my prayer, and He put a new canticle into my mouth, a song to our God.
Look graciously, O Lord, upon Thy people: graciously look upon our gifts, that, being appeased by this offering, Thou mayest both grant us pardon, and give us what we ask. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God…
PREFACE: Common Preface
It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation that we should at all times and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God: through Christ our Lord. Through Whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the Heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with them we entreat Thee, that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted, while we say in lowly praise:
SANCTUS, SANCTUS, SANCTUS Dominus Deus Sabaoth. Pleni sunt coeli et terra gloria Tua. Hosanna in excelsis. Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. Hosanna in excelsis.
COMMUNION: John 6: 52
The bread that l will give is My Flesh for the life of the world.
May the efficacy of the heavenly gift, we beseech Thee, O Lord, possess our minds and bodies: so that its effects, and not our own impulses, may ever prevail in us. Through the same Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God For ever and ever. Amen.
