“What is urgent is the evangelization of a world that not only does not know the basic aspects of Christian dogma, but in great part has lost even the memory of the cultural elements of Christianity.” Pope St. John Paul II

        Boston Catholic Journal                   “I am convinced that the crisis in the Church that we are experiencing today is to a large extent due to the disintegration of the liturgy.” Pope Benedict XVI

Psalmus 69

 
Deus, in adjutórium

 

1 Deus, in adjutórium meum inténde: Dómine ad adjuvándum me festína.

 

2 Confundántur et revereántur, qui quærunt ánimam meam.  Avertántur retrórsum, et erubéscant, qui volunt mihi mala.

 



3 Avertántur statim erubescéntes,  qui dicunt mihi : Euge, euge.

 

4 Exsúltent et læténtur in te omnes qui quærunt te,  et dicant semper : Magnificétur Dóminus : qui díligunt salutáre tuum.

 

5 Ego vero egénus, et pauper sum :  Deus, ádjuva me.

 


6 Adjútor meus, et liberátor meus es tu : Dómine, ne moréris.

 


7 Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto.

 


8 Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,  et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen.

 

 

 

V. Salvos fac servos tuos.

 

  /R. Deus meus, sperántes in te.

 

 

 

V. Esto nobis, Dómine, turris fortitúdinis.

 

  /R. A fácie inimíci.

 

 

 

 V. Nihil profíciat inimícus in nobis.

 

  /R. Et fílius iniquitátis non appónat nocére nobis.

 

 

 


V.
Dómine, non secúndum peccáta nostra fácias nobis.

 

  /R. Neque secúndum iniquitátes nostras retríbuas nobis.

 

 

 


V.
Orémus pro Pontifice nostro (Nomen).

 

  /R. Dóminus consérvet eum, et vivíficet eum, et beátum fáciat eum in terra, et beátum fáciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in ánimam inimicórum ejus.

 

 

 

(Vacante Apostolica Sede, Versus cum suo Responsorio præteritu  /R.)

Orémus pro fidelibus defunctis.

Oremus. (Oratio)

 

 

 

Deus, cui proprium est miseréri semper et parcere : súscipe deprecatiónem nostram ; ut nos, et omnes fámulos tuos, quos delictórum catena constringit, miserátio tuæ pietátis clementer absolvat.

 

 

 


Exáudi, quæsumus, Dómine, supplícium preces, et confiténtium tibi parce peccátis : ut páriter nobis indulgéntiam tríbuas benignus et pacem.

 

 

 

 

Ineffábilem nobis, Dómine, misericórdiam tuam clementer osténde : ut simul nos et a peccátis ómnibus exuas, et a pœnis, quas pro his meremur, erípias.

 

 

 

 


Deus, qui culpa offenderis, pœniténtia placaris : preces pópuli tui supplicántis propítius réspice ; et flagélla tuæ iracúndiæ, quæ pro peccátis nostris meremur, averte.

 

 

 

 

 

 

(If the Holy See is vacant, the following Collect is omitted.)

 

 

 

Omnípotens sempiterne Deus, miserére famulo tuo Pontifici nostro (Nomen), et dírige eum secúndum tuam cleméntiam in viam salútis ætérnæ : ut, te donante, tibi placita cupiat, et tota virtúte perfíciat.

 

 

 

 


Deus, a quo sancta desidéria, recta consília et justa sunt ópera : da servis tuis illam, quam mundus dare non potest, pacem ; ut et corda nostra mandátis tuis dedita, et, hóstium subláta formidine, témpora sint, tua protectióne, tranquilla.

 

 

 

 

 

Ure igne Sancti Spíritus renes nostros et cor nostrum, Dómine : ut tibi casto corpore serviamus, et mundo corde placeámus.

 

 

 

 

Fidélium, Deus, ómnium conditor et redemptor, animábus famulórum famularumque tuárum remissiónem cunctórum tríbue peccatórum : ut indulgéntiam, quam semper optavérunt, piis supplicatiónibus consequántu.

 

 

 

 

Actiónes nostras, quæsumus, Dómine, aspirándo prævéni et adjuvándo proséquere : ut cuncta nostra orátio et operátio a te semper incipiat et per te cœpta finiátu  /R.

 

 

 

 

 

Omnípotens sempiterne Deus, qui vivórum domináris simul et mortuórum, ómniumque miseréris quos tuos fide et ópere futuros esse prænoscis : te supplices exorámus ; ut, pro quibus effúndere preces decrevimus, quosque vel præsens sæculum adhuc in carne retinet vel futúrum jam exutos corpore suscépit, intercedéntibus ómnibus Sanctis tuis, pietátis tuæ cleméntia, ómnium delictórum suórum véniam consequántu  Per Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum, Fílium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus, per ómnia sæcula sæculórum.

 

 

 

 

 

 
/R.
Amen.

 

 

 

V. Dóminus vobíscum.

 

  /R. Et cum spíritu tuo.

Psalm 69


 Deus, in adjutórium

 

1 HASTE thee, O God, to deliver me;  make haste to help me, O LORD.

 

2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul;  let them be turned backward and put to confusion that wish me evil.

 

3 Let them for their reward be soon brought to shame, * that cry over me, There! there!

 

4 But let all those that seek thee be joyful and glad in thee:  and let all such as delight in thy salvation say always, The LORD be praised.

 

5 As for me, I am poor and in misery:  haste thee unto me, O God.

 

6 Thou art my helper, and my redeemer:  O LORD, make no long tarrying.

 

7 Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

 

8 As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

 

 

 

V. O God, save thy servants.

 

R. That put their trust in thee.

 

 

 

V. Be unto us, O LORD, a tower of strength.

 

R. From the face of the enemy.

 

 

 

V. Let the enemy prevail nothing against us.

 

R. Nor the son of wickedness approach to afflict us.

 

 

 

V. O LORD, deal not with us after our sins.

 

R. Neither reward us according to our iniquities.

 

 

 

V. Let us pray for our Pope (Name).

 

R. The Lord preserve him and keep him alive, that he may be blessed upon earth; and deliver not thou him into the will of his enemies.

 

 

 

(If the Holy See is vacant, the above Versicle with its Response is omitted.)

 

 

 

V. Let us pray for our benefactors.

 

R. Vouchsafe, O Lord, for thy Name's sake, to reward with eternal life all them that do us good. Amen.

 

 

 

V. Let us pray for the faithful departed.

 

R. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them.

 

 

 

V. May they rest in peace.

 

R. Amen.

 

 

 

V. Let us pray for our absent brethren.

 

R. Save thy servants, O my God, that put their trust in thee.

 

 

 

V. Send them help, O LORD, from thy holy place.

V. O LORD, hear my prayer.

 

R. And let my cry come unto thee.

 

 

 

V. The Lord be with you.

 

R. And with thy spirit.

 

 

 

Let us pray. (Collects)

 

 

 

O God, whose nature and property is ever to have mercy and to forgive : receive our humble petitions ; and though we be tied and bound by the chain of our sins, yet let the pitifulness of thy great mercy loose us.

 

 

 

We beseech thee, O LORD, mercifully to hear the prayers of thy humble servants, and to forgive the sins of them that confess the same unto thee : that they may obtain of thy loving-kindness pardon and peace.

 

 

 

O Lord, we pray thee, shew forth upon us thy servants the abundance of thy unspeakable mercy : that we may be delivered from the chain of our sins, and from the punishment which for the same we have most righteously deserved.

 

 

 

O God, who art wroth with them that sin against thee, and sparest them that are penitent : we beseech thee to hear the prayers of thy people that call upon thee ; that we, which have most justly deserved the scourges of thine anger, may by thy great mercy be delivered from the same.

 

 

 

(If the Holy See is vacant, the following Collect is omitted.)

 

 

 

Almighty and everlasting God, we beseech thee to have compassion upon (Name), our Pope, and by thy mercy govern him in the way of everlasting life : that, being endued with thy grace, he may ever seek those things that are pleasing unto thee, and with his whole strength perform the same.

 

 

 

O God, from whom all holy desires, all good counsels, and all just works do proceed : give unto thy servants that peace which the world cannot give ; that our hearts may be set to obey thy commandments, and also that by thee we being defended from the fear of our enemies may pass our time in rest and quietness.

 

 

 

Grant, O Lord, we pray thee, that the fire of thy Holy Ghost may in such wise cleanse our reins and our hearts: that we serving thee in pureness both of body and soul may be found an acceptable people in thy sight.

 

 

 

O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all them that believe: grant unto the souls of thy servants and handmaidens the remission of all their sins ; that, as they have ever desired thy merciful pardon, so by the supplications of their brethren they may receive the same.

 

 

 

Prevent us, O LORD, in all our doings with thy most gracious favour, and further us with thy continual help : that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy Name, and finally by thy mercy obtain everlasting life.

 

 

 

Almighty and everlasting God, who hast dominion both of the quick and the dead, who likewise hast mercy upon all men, whom by reason of their faith and works thou hast foreknown : we commend unto thee all those for whom we now do offer our prayers, whether in this world they still be held in the bonds of the flesh, or being delivered therefrom have passed into that which is to come ; beseeching thee that at the intercession of all thy Saints they may of thy bountiful goodness obtain the remission of all their sins. Through our LORD, Jesus Christ thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.

 

 

 

R. Amen.

 

 

 

V. The LORD be with you.

 

R. And with thy spirit.

 

 

 

V. May the Almighty and Merciful Lord graciously hear us.

 

R. Amen.

 

 

 

V. And may the souls of the faithful departed, † through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

 

R. Amen.
