Latin Text

In the midst of the Church the Lord opened his mouth, and He filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding. He clothed him with a robe of glory.  [Ps. xci] It is good to give praise to the Lord: and to sing to Thy name, O Most High. Glory be.


O almighty God, attend to our supplications, and by the intercession of blessed Augustine, Thy Confessor and Bishop , graciously grant the effect of Thy wonted mercy to those, to whom Thou givest firm trust in Thy loving kindness for which we hope. Through our Lord.

Commemoration of Saint Hermes

O God who didst endow blessed Hermes , Thy martyr, with the virtue of constancy in suffering, grant us in imitation of him to despise worldly prosperity for the love of Thee, and to fear no temporal adversity.  Through our Lord.

Epistle: 2 Timothy iv: 1-8

A reading from the epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to Timothy.
Dearly beloved, I charge thee before God and Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead, by His coming and His kingdom: preach the word: be instant in season, out of season: reprove, entreat rebuke in all patience and doctrine. For there shall be a time when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires they will heap up to them selves teachers, having itching ears, and will turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables. But be thou vigilant, labor in all things, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill thy ministry. Be sober. For I am even now ready to be sacrificed, and the time of my dissolution is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. As to the rest, there is laid up for me a crown of justice, which the Lord, the just Judge, will render to me in that day: and not only to me, but to them also that love His coming.

Gradual Ps. xxxvi: 30, 31:

The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom, and his tongue shall speak judgment. The law of his God is in his heart, and his steps shall not be supplanted.
Alleluia, alleluia.I have found David My servant:  With My holy oil I have anointed him.  Alleluia.

Gospel: Matthew v: 13-19

The continuation of the holy Gospel according to Matthew.
At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its strength, what shall it be salted with? It is no longer of any use but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Neither do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel basket, but, rather, upon the lamp stand, so as to give light to all in the house. Even so, let your light shine before men, in order that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have come not to destroy, but to fulfill. For amen I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall be lost from the Law till all things have been accomplished. Therefore whoever does away with one of these least commandments, and so teaches men, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven."


Offertory: Ps. cxi: 13

The just shall flourish like the palm tree. He shall increase like the cedars of Lebanon.


May the holy prayer of blessed Augustine Thy Bishop and Doctor, fail us not, O Lord; may it render our gifts acceptable, and ever obtain for us Thy pardon.  Through our Lord.

Commemoration of Saint Hermes

In memory of Thy saints we offer to Thee O lord, our sacrifice of praise:  grant, we beseech Thee, that what was to them a source of glory, may profit us unto salvation.  Through our Lord.

Communion: Luke xii: 42:

The faithful and prudent steward whom the master will set over his household to give them their ration of grain in due season.


We beseech The, O Lord, that blessed Augustine, Thy bishop and illustrious Doctor may approach to pray for us, that these Thy sacrifices may further our salvation.  Through our Lord.

Commemoration of Saint Hermes

Filled, O Lord, with heavenly blessings:  most humbly we entreat of Thy mercy that, blessed Hermes, Thy martyr, interceding for us, we may feel the benefit of what we humbly celebrate.  Through our Lord.
