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.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried: he descended into hell; the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sitteth at the right hand of God the Father almighty: from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins. The resurrection of the body. And life everlasting. Amen.

8 Heth. Cogitávit Dóminus díssipare murum fíliæ Sion: teténdit funículum suum, et non avértit manum suam a perditióne: luxítque ántemurale, et murus páriter dissipátus est.

Lesson from the book of Lamentations
Lam 2:8-11
8 Heth. The Lord hath purposed to destroy the wall of the daughter of Sion: he hath stretched out his line, and hath not withdrawn his hand from destroying: and the bulwark hath mourned, and the wall hath been destroyed together.
9 Teth. Her gates are sunk into the ground: he hath destroyed, and broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: the law is no more, and her prophets have found no vision from the Lord.
10 Jod. The ancients of the daughter of Sion sit upon the ground, they have held their peace: they have sprinkled their heads with dust, they are girded with haircloth, the virgins of Jerusalem hang down their heads to the ground.
11 Caph. My eyes have failed with weeping, my bowels are troubled: my liver is poured out upon the earth, for the destruction of the daughter of my people, when the children, and the sucklings, fainted away in the streets of the city.
Jerusalem! Jerusalem! Return unto the Lord thy God.

R. All my friends have forsaken me, and mine enemies have prevailed against me; he whom I loved hath betrayed me.
* Mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me; he breaketh me with breach upon breach: and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
V. I am numbered with the transgressors; and my life is not spared.

13 Mem. Cui comparábo te? vel cui assimilábo te, fília Jerúsalem? cui exæquábo te, et consolabor te, virgo fília Sion? Magna est enim velut mare contrítio tua: quis medébitur tui?

2:12-15
12 Lamed. They said to their mothers: Where is corn and wine? when they fainted away as the wounded in the streets of the city: when they breathed out their souls in the bosoms of their mothers.
13 Mem. To what shall I compare thee? or to what shall I liken thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? to what shall I equal thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin daughter of Sion? for great as the sea is thy destruction: who shall heal thee?
14 Nun. thy prophets have seen false and foolish things for thee: and they have not laid open thy iniquity, to excite thee to penance: but they have seen for thee false revelations and banishments.
5 Samech. All they that passed by the way have clapped their hands at thee: they have hissed, and wagged their heads at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying: Is this the city of perfect beauty, the joy of all the earth?
Jerusalem! Jerusalem! Return unto the Lord thy God.

R. The veil of the Temple was rent in twain, from the top to the bottom,
* And all the earth did quake: the thief on the cross cried, saying: Lord, remember me when Thou comest into thy kingdom!

Psalm 37 [4]
37:2 Rebuke me not, O Lord, in thy indignation; * nor chastise me in thy wrath.
37:3 For thy arrows are fastened in me: * and thy hand hath been strong upon me.
37:4 There is no health in my flesh, because of thy wrath: * there is no peace for my bones, because of my sins.
37:5 For my iniquities are gone over my head: * and as a heavy burden are become heavy upon me.
37:6 My sores are putrified and corrupted, * because of my foolishness.
37:7 I am become miserable, and am bowed down even to the end: * I walked sorrowful all the day long.
37:8 For my loins are filled with illusions; * and there is no health in my flesh.
37:9 I am afflicted and humbled exceedingly: * I roared with the groaning of my heart.
37:10 Lord, all my desire is before thee, * and my groaning is not hidden from thee.
37:11 My heart is troubled, my strength hath left me, * and the light of my eyes itself is not with me.
37:12 My friends and my neighbours * have drawn near, and stood against me.
37:12 And they that were near me stood afar off: * and they that sought my soul used violence.
37:13 And they that sought evils to me spoke vain things, * and studied deceits all the day long.
37:14 But I, as a deaf man, heard not: * and as a dumb man not opening his mouth.
37:15 And I became as a man that heareth not: * and that hath no reproofs in his mouth.
37:16 For in thee, O Lord, have I hoped: * thou wilt hear me, O Lord my God.
37:17 For I said: Lest at any time my enemies rejoice over me: * and whilst my feet are moved, they speak great things against me.
37:18 For I am ready for scourges: * and my sorrow is continually before me.
37:19 For I will declare my iniquity: * and I will think for my sin.
37:20 But my enemies live, and are stronger than I: * and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
37:21 They that render evil for good, have detracted me, * because I followed goodness.
37:22 Forsake me not, O Lord my God: * do not thou depart from me.

Ex tractátu sancti Augustíni Epíscopi super Psalmos
In Psalm 63 ad versum 2
Protexísti me, Deus, a convéntu malignántium, a multitúdine operántium iniquitátem. Jam ipsum caput nostrum intueámur. Multi Mártyres tália passi sunt, sed nihil sic elúcet, quómodo caput Mártyrum: ibi mélius intuémur, quod illi expérti sunt. Protéctus est a multitúdine malignántium, protegénte se Deo, protegénte carnem suam ipso Fílio, et hómine, quem gerébat: quia fílius hóminis est, et Fílius Dei est. Fílius Dei, propter formam Dei: fílius hóminis, propter formam servi, habens in potestáte pónere ánimam suam, et recípere eam. Quid ei potuérunt fácere inimíci? Occidérunt corpus, ánimam non occidérunt. Inténdite. Parum ergo erat, Dóminum hortári Mártyres verbo, nisi firmáret exémplo.

R. Tamquam ad latrónem exístis cum gládiis et fustibus comprehéndere me:
* Cotídie apud vos eram in templo docens, et non me tenuístis: et ecce flagellátum dúcitis ad crucifigéndum.
V. Cumque injecíssent manus in Jesum, et ténuissent eum, dixit ad eos.
R. Cotídie apud vos eram in templo docens, et non me tenuístis: et ecce flagellátum dúcitis ad crucifigéndum.

Reading 4
From the Treatise of St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, Upon the Psalms
On Psalm lxiii, 2
Thou hast hidden me from the secret counsel of the wicked, from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity. Now let us fix our eyes upon our Head. Many martyrs have. suffered such things as He suffered, but God's hiding of His suffering servants is not so well seen in the Martyrs, as it is in the Captain of the Martyrs. And it is in Him that we best see how it fared with them. He was hidden from the secret counsel of the wicked; hidden by God, being Himself God; hidden, as touching the Manhood, by God the Son, and the very Manhood, Which is taken into God the Son; because He is the Son of man, and He is the Son of God; Son of God, as being in the form of God; Son of man, as having taken upon Him the form of a servant, Phil. ii. 6, 7, Whose life no man taketh from Him, but Who layeth it down of Himself. He hath power to lay it down, and He hath power to take it again, John x. 18. What then was all that they which hated Him could do? They could kill the Body, but they were not able to kill the Soul. Consider this very earnestly. It had been a small thing for the Lord to preach to the Martyrs by His word, if He had not also nerved them by His example.

R. Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves, for to take Me?
* I sat daily with you, teaching in the Temple, and ye laid no hold on Me; and, now when ye have scourged Me, ye lead Me away to crucify Me!
V. And when they had laid hands on Jesus, and taken Him, He said unto them:
R. I sat daily with you, teaching in the Temple, and ye laid no hold on Me; and now, when ye have scourged Me, ye lead Me away to crucify Me!

Tanta ópera bona, inquit, osténdi vobis: propter quod horum me vultis occídere? Pértulit omnes infírmos eórum, curávit omnes lánguidos eórum, prædicávit regnum cælórum, non tácuit vítia eórum, ut ipsa pótius eis displícerent, non médicus, a quo sanabántur. His ómnibus curatiónibus ejus ingráti, tamquam multa febre phrenétici, insaniéntes in medicum, qui vénerat curáre eos, excogitavérunt consílium perdéndi eum: tamquam ibi voléntes probáre, utrum vere homo sit, qui mori possit, an áliquid super hómines sit, et mori se non permíttat. Verbum ipsórum agnóscimus in Sapiéntia Salomónis: Morte turpíssima, ínquiunt, condemnémus eum. Interrogémus eum: erit enim respéctus in sermónibus illíus. Si enim vere Fílius Dei est, líberet eum.

We know what secret counsel was that of the wicked Jews, and what insurrection was that of the workers of iniquity. Of what iniquity were they the workers? The murder of our Lord Jesus Christ. Many good works, saith He, have I showed you for which of those works go ye about to kill Me? He had borne with all their weaknesses: He had healed all their diseases: He had preached unto them the kingdom of heaven: He had discovered to them their iniquities, that they might rather hate them, than the Physician That came to cure them. And now at last, without gratitude for all the tenderness of His healing love, like men raging in an high delirium, throwing themselves madly on the Physician, Who had come to cure them, they took counsel together how they might kill Him, as if to see if He were a Man and could die, or Something more than a man, and That would not let Himself die. In the Wisdom of Solomon we recognize their words, ii. 18, 19, 20, Let us condemn Him with a shameful death. Let us examine Him; for, by His own saying, He shall be respected. If He be the Son of God, let Him help Him.

R. The Jews crucified Jesus: and there was darkness (over all the land, unto the ninth hour): and about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, (saying): My God, (My God,) why hast Thou forsaken Me?
* And He bowed His Head, and gave up the Ghost.
V. When Jesus had cried with a loud voice, He said: Father, into thy hands I commend My Spirit.

Exacuérunt tamquam gládium linguas suas. Non dicant Judæi: Non occídimus Christum. Etenim proptérea eum dedérunt júdici Piláto, ut quasi ipsi a morte ejus videréntur immúnes. Nam cum dixísset eis Pilátus: Vos eum occídite: respondérunt, Nobis non licet occídere quemquam. Iniquitátem facínoris sui in judicem hóminem refúndere volébant: sed numquid Deum judicem fallébant? Quod fecit Pilátus, in eo ipso quod fecit, aliquántum párticeps fuit: sed in comparatióne illórum multo ipse innocéntior. Instítit enim quantum pótuit, ut illum ex eórum mánibus liberáret: nam proptérea flagellátum produxit ad eos. Non persequéndo Dóminum flagellávit, sed eórum furóri satisfácere volens: ut vel sic jam mitéscerent, et desínerent velle occídere, cum flagellátum víderent. Fecit et hoc. At ubi perseveravérunt, nostis illum lavísse manus, et dixísse, quod ipse non fecísset, mundum se esse a morte illíus. Fecit tamen. Sed si reus, quia fecit vel invítus: illi innocéntes, qui coëgérunt ut fáceret? Nullo modo. Sed ille dixit in eum senténtiam, et jussit eum crucifígi, et quasi ipse occídit: et vos, o Judǽi, occídistis. Unde occídistis? Gládio linguæ: acuístis enim linguas vestras. Et quando percússistis, nisi quando clamástis: Crucifíge, crucifíge?

They whetted their tongue like a sword. The Jews cannot say: We did not murder Christ, albeit they gave Him over to Pilate His judge, that they themselves might seem free of His death. For when Pilate said unto them, Take ye Him: and kill Him, they answered, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death. They could throw the blame of their sin upon a human judge: but did they deceive God, the Great Judge? In that which Pilate did, he was their accomplice, but in comparison with them, he had far the lesser sin. John xix. 11. Pilate strove as far as he could, to deliver Him out of their hands; for the which reason also he scourged Him, John xix. 1, and brought Him forth to them He scourged not the Lord for cruelty's sake, but in the hope that; he might so slake their wild thirst for blood: that, perchance, even they might be touched with compassion, and cease to lust for His death, when they saw What He was after the flagellation. Even this effort he made! But when Pilate saw that he could not prevail, but that rather a tumult was made, Matth. xxvii. 24, ye know how that he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying: I am innocent of the blood of this Just Person. And yet he delivered Him to be crucified! But if he were guilty who did it against his will, were they innocent; who goaded him on to it? No. Pilate gave sentence against Him. and commanded Him to be crucified. But ye, O ye Jews, ye also are His murderers! Wherewith? With your tongue, whetted like a sword. And when? But when ye cried, Crucify Him! Crucify Him! Mark xv.13-14

58:13 For the sin of their mouth, and the word of their lips: * and let them be taken in their pride.
58:13 And for their cursing and lying they shall be talked of, when they are consumed: * when they are consumed by thy wrath, and they shall be no more.
58:14 And they shall know that God will rule Jacob, * and all the ends of the earth.
58:15 They shall return at evening and shall suffer hunger like dogs: * and shall go round about the city.
58:16 They shall be scattered abroad to eat, * and shall murmur if they be not filled.
58:17 But I will sing thy strength: * and will extol thy mercy in the morning.
58:17 For thou art become my support, * and my refuge, in the day of my trouble.

87:9 I was delivered up, and came not forth: * my eyes languished through poverty.

87:11 Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? * or shall physicians raise to life, and give praise to thee?
87:12 Shall any one in the sepulchre declare thy mercy: * and thy truth in destruction?
87:13 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark; * and thy justice in the land of forgetfulness?

De Epistola beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Hebrǽos
Heb 4:11-15
11 Festinémus íngredi in illam réquiem: ut ne in idípsum quis íncidat incredulitátis exemplum.
12 Vivus est enim sermo Dei, et éfficax et penetrabílior omni gládio ancípiti: et pertíngens usque ad divisiónem ánimæ ac spíritus, compágum quoque ac medullárum, et discrétor cogitatiónum et intentiónum cordis.
13 Et non est ulla creatúra invisíbilis in conspéctu ejus: ómnia autem nuda et apérta sunt óculis ejus, ad quem nobis sermo.
14 Habéntes ergo Pontíficem magnum, qui penetrávit cælos, Jesum Fílium Dei: teneámus confessiónem.
15 Non enim habémus Pontificem, qui non possit cómpati infirmitátibus nostris: tentátum autem per ómnia pro similitúdine absque peccáto.

R. Tradidérunt me in manus impiórum, et inter iníquos projecérunt me, et non pepercérunt ánimæ meæ: congregáti sunt advérsum me fortes:
* Et sicut gigántes stetérunt contra me.
V. Aliéni insurrexérunt advérsum me, et fortes quæsiérunt ánimam meam.

From the letter of the blessed Apostle Paul to the Hebrews
Heb 4:11-15
11 Let us hasten therefore to enter into that rest; lest any man fall into the same example of unbelief.
12 For the word of God is living and effectual, and more piercing than any two edged sword; and reaching unto the division of the soul and the spirit, of the joints also and the marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature invisible in his sight: but all things are naked and open to his eyes, to whom our speech is.
14 Having therefore a great high priest that hath passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God: let us hold fast our confession.
15 For we have not a high priest, who can not have compassion on our infirmities: but one tempted in all things like as we are, without sin.

R. They have turned me over into the hands of the wicked: they also have numbered me with the transgressors, neither have they spared my life: the mighty are gathered together against me;
* And stand up against me like giants.
V. Strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul.
R. And stand up against me like giants.

2 Qui condolére possit iis, qui ignórant et errant: quóniam et ipse circúmdatus est infirmitáte:
3 Et proptérea debet quemádmodum pro pópulo, ita étiam pro semetípso offérre pro peccátis.

16 Let us go therefore with confidence to the throne of grace: that we may obtain mercy, and find grace in seasonable aid.
1 For every high priest taken from among men, is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins:
2 Who can have compassion on them that are ignorant and that err: because he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
3 And therefore he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.

Heb 5:4-10
4 Neither doth any man take the honour to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was.
5 So Christ also did not glorify himself, that he might be made a high priest: but he that said unto him: Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
6 As he saith also in another place: Thou art a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchisedech.
7 Who in the days of his flesh, with a strong cry and tears, offering up prayers and supplications to him that was able to save him from death, was heard for his reverence.
8 And whereas indeed he was the Son of God, he learned obedience by the things which he suffered:
9 And being consummated, he became, to all that obey him, the cause of eternal salvation.
10 Called by God a high priest according to the order of Melchisedech.
