Protect Your Church by Your abiding mercy, we beseech You, O Lord, and since all mortals fall without You, may Your help keep them from danger and guide them to salvation.
Through our Lord…

Custódi, Dómine, quǽsumus, Ecclésiam tuam propitiatióne perpétua: et quia sine te lábitur humána mortálitas; tuis semper auxíliis et abstrahátur a nóxiis et ad salutária dirigátur.

Epistle

Lectio

Lesson from the letter of St. Paul the Apostle to the Galatians
Gal 5:16-24
Brethren: Walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, so that you do not do what you would. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are immorality, uncleanness, licentiousness, idolatry, witchcrafts, enmities, contentions, jealousies, anger, quarrels, factions, parties, envies, murders, drunkenness, carousings, and suchlike. And concerning these I warn you, as I have warned you, that they who do such things will not attain the kingdom of God. But of the fruit of the Spirit is: charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, long-suffering, mildness, faith, modesty, continency, chastity. Against such things there is no law. And they who belong to Christ have crucified their flesh with its passions and desires.

Léctio Epístolæ beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Gálatas.
Gal 5:16-24
Fratres: Spíritu ambuláte, et desidéria carnis non perficiétis. Caro enim concupíscit advérsus spíritum, spíritus autem advérsus carnem: hæc enim sibi ínvicem adversántur, ut non quæcúmque vultis, illa faciátis. Quod si spíritu ducímini, non estis sub lege. Manifésta sunt autem ópera carnis, quæ sunt fornicátio, immundítia, impudicítia, luxúria, idolórum sérvitus, venefícia, inimicítiæ, contentiónes, æmulatiónes, iræ, rixæ, dissensiónes, sectæ, invídiæ, homicídia, ebrietátes, comessatiónes, et his simília: quæ prædíco vobis, sicut prædíxi: quóniam, qui talia agunt, regnum Dei non consequántur. Fructus autem Spíritus est: cáritas, gáudium, pax, patiéntia, benígnitas, bónitas, longanímitas, mansuetúdo, fides, modéstia, continéntia, cástitas. Advérsus hujúsmodi non est lex. Qui autem sunt Christi, carnem suam crucifixérunt cum vítiis et concupiscéntiis.

Gospel

Evangelium

Continuation ☩ of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 6:24-33
At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: No man serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will stand by the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, what you shall eat; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life a greater thing than the food, and the body than the clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they do not sow, or reap, or gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you of much more value than they? But which of you by being anxious about it can add to his stature a single cubit? And as for clothing, why are you anxious? Consider how the lilies of the field grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed like one of those. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which flourishes today but tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more you, O you of little faith! Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or, ‘What shall we drink?’ or, ‘What are we to put on?’ - for after all these things the Gentiles seek; - for your Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the Kingdom of God and His justice, and all these things shall be given you besides.

Sequéntia ☩ sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum.
Matt 6:24-33
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Nemo potest duóbus dóminis servíre: aut enim unum ódio habébit, et álterum díliget: aut unum sustinébit, et álterum contémnet. Non potéstis Deo servíre et mammónæ. Ideo dico vobis, ne sollíciti sitis ánimæ vestræ, quid manducétis, neque córpori vestro, quid induámini. Nonne ánima plus est quam esca: et corpus plus quam vestiméntum? Respícite volatília cœli, quóniam non serunt neque metunt neque cóngregant in hórrea: et Pater vester cœléstis pascit illa. Nonne vos magis pluris estis illis? Quis autem vestrum cógitans potest adjícere ad statúram suam cúbitum unum? Et de vestiménto quid sollíciti estis? Consideráte lília agri, quómodo crescunt: non labórant neque nent. Dico autem vobis, quóniam nec Sálomon in omni glória sua coopértus est sicut unum ex istis. Si autem fænum agri, quod hódie est et cras in clíbanum míttitur, Deus sic vestit: quanto magis vos módicæ fídei? Nolíte ergo sollíciti esse, dicéntes: Quid manducábimus aut quid bibémus aut quo operiémur? Hæc enim ómnia gentes inquírunt. Scit enim Pater vester, quia his ómnibus indigétis. Quǽrite ergo primum regnum Dei et justítiam ejus: et hæc ómnia adjiciéntur vobis.

Preface

Prefatio

Holy Trinity
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; Who, together with Thine only-begotten Son, and the Holy Ghost, art one God, one Lord: not in the oneness of a single Person, but in the Trinity of one substance. For what we believe by Thy revelation of Thy glory, the same do we believe of Thy Son, the same of the Holy Ghost, without difference or separation. So that in confessing the true and everlasting Godhead, distinction in persons, unity in essence, and equality in majesty may be adored. Which the Angels and Archangels, the Cherubim also and Seraphim do praise: who cease not daily to cry out, with one voice saying:

de sanctissima Trinitate
Vere dignum et justum est, æquum et salutáre, nos tibi semper et ubíque grátias ágere: Dómine sancte, Pater omnípotens, ætérne Deus: Qui cum unigénito Fílio tuo et Spíritu Sancto unus es Deus, unus es Dóminus: non in unius singularitáte persónæ, sed in uníus Trinitáte substántiæ. Quod enim de tua glória, revelánte te, crédimus, hoc de Fílio tuo, hoc de Spíritu Sancto sine differéntia discretiónis sentímus. Ut in confessióne veræ sempiternǽque Deitátis, et in persónis propríetas, et in esséntia únitas, et in majestáte adorétur æquálitas. Quam laudant Angeli atque Archángeli, Chérubim quoque ac Séraphim: qui non cessant clamáre cotídie, una voce dicéntes:
