Common of Abbots
Os justi

[Latin Text]

Introit: Ps. xxxvi: 30-31

The mouth of the just man shall meditate wisdom, and his tongue shall speak judgment: the law of his God is in his heart. (P.T. Alleluia, alleluia.) [Ps.] Do not emulate evil doers, nor envy those that work iniquity. Glory be. The mouth.


May the intercession of the blessed abbot N., we beseech Thee, O Lord, commend us unto Thee, that what we cannot have through our own merits, we may obtain through his patronage.

Epistle: Ecclesiasticus xiv: 1-6

A reading from the wisdom books:
Beloved of God and men, whose memory is in benediction. He made him like the saints in glory, and magnified him in the fear of his enemies, and with his words he made prodigies to cease. He glorified him in the sight of kings, and gave him commandments in the sight of his people, and showed him His glory. He sanctified him in his faith and meekness, and chose him out of all flesh. For He heard him and his voice, and brought him into a cloud. And He gave him commandments before His face, and a law of life and instruction.

Gradual: Ps. xx: 4-5

Lord, Thou hast gone before him with blessings of sweetness. Thou hast set a crown of precious stones upon his head. He asked life of Thee, and Thou hast given him length of days for ever and ever.
Alleluia, alleluia. The just shall flourish like the palm tree. He shall increase like the cedars of Lebanon. Alleluia!

From Septuagesima until Easter the Tract replaces the Alleluia verse:
Tract: Ps. cxi: 1-3

Blessed is the man that fears the Lord. He shall delight exceedingly in His commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon the earth. The generation of the righteous shall be blessed. Glory and wealth shall be in his house, and his justice remains forever and ever.

In Paschaltide Gradual and Tract are replaced:
Alleluia Verse: Ps. xci: 13

Alleluia, alleluia. The just shall flourish like the palm tree. He shall increase like the cedars of Lebanon. Alleluia! The just shall spring up as the lily, and flourish forever before the Lord. Alleluia!

Gospel: Matthew xix: 27-29

 The continuation of the holy Gospel according to Matthew.

At that time, Peter said to Jesus: "Behold, we have left all things, and followed Thee. What, therefore, shall we have?" And Jesus said to them: "Amen, amen, I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit on the throne of His majesty, you also shall sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall possess life everlasting.

Offertory: Ps. xx: 3,4

Thou hast given Him his heart's desire, O Lord, and hast not withheld from him what he has asked. Thou hast set a crown of precious stones upon his head. (P.T. Alleluia.)


May Thy holy abbot N., we beseech Thee, O Lord, obtain for us that the victims placed upon Thine holy altar may avail us unto salvation.

Communion: Luke xii: 42

The faithful and wise servant, whom his lord sets over his family, to give them their measure of wheat in due season. (P.T. Alleluia.)


May the reception of Thy Sacrament, and the intercession of blessed N., Thine Abbot, protect us O Lord; that we may practice the virtues of his life and receive the help of his intercession.
