Latin Mass Text

Introit: Psalm xc: 15, 16

He shall cry to me, and I shall hear him: I will deliver him and I will glorify him. I will fill him with length of days. He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, shall abide in the protection of the God of Heaven. Glory be to the Father. He shall.

Collect:

O God, who dost purify Thy Church by the yearly observance of forty days; grant to Thy household that what we strive to obtain from Thee by self denial, we may secure by good works. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who with Thee and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest God, world without end.

Orations for Lent (Quadragesima)

Epistle: 2 Corinthians vi: 1-10

A reading from the epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians. Brethren: We exhort you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says, "In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in the day of salvation I have helped thee." Behold, now is the acceptable time, behold now is the time of salvation. Giving no offense to any man, that our ministry may not be blamed; but in all things let us exhibit ourselves as ministers of God; in much patience, in tribulation, in necessities, in distresses, in lashings, in prisons, in rebellions, in labors, in watchings, in fastings, in chastity, in knowledge, in longsuffering, in sweetness, in the Holy Ghost, in charity unfeigned, in the word of truth, in the power of God: by the armor of justice on the right hand and on the left: by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report: as deceivers and yet true, as unknown and yet known: as dying, and behold we live: as chastised and not killed: as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing: as needy, yet enriching many: as having nothing, and possessing all things.

Gradual: Psalm xc: 11-12

God has given His angels charge over Thee, to keep Thee in all Thy ways. In their hands they shall bear Thee up, lest Thou dash Thy foot against a stone.

Tract: Psalm xc: 1 -7, 11-16

He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, shall abide in the protection of the God of Heaven. v. He shall say to the Lord, "Thou art my protector and my refuge; my God, in Him will I trust. For He has delivered me from the snare of the hunters, and from the accusing word." v. He will overshadow thee with His shoulders, and under His wings thou shalt trust. v. His truth shall compass thee with a shield; thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night. v. Of the arrow that flies in the day, of the conspirators who walk about in the dark, of the ruin and the noonday devil. v. A thousand shall fall at thy side; ten thousand at thy right side; but it shall not come near to thee. v. For He has given His angels charge over Thee, to keep Thee in all Thy ways. v. In their hands they shall bear Thee up, lest Thou dash Thy foot against a stone. v. Thou shalt walk upon the asp and the basilisk, and thou shalt trample underfoot the lion and the dragon. v. Because he hoped in Me I will deliver him. I will protect him, because he has known My name. v. He shall cry to Me and I will hear him. I am with him in tribulation. v. I will deliver him and I will glorify him. I will fill him with length of days, and I will show him My salvation.

Gospel: Matthew iv: 1-11
+
The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.

At that time Jesus was led by the spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterwards He was hungry. And the tempter, coming to Him, said, "If Thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread." Who answered, and said, "It is written, .Not by bread alone does man live, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God." Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, and set Him upon the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If Thou be the Son of God, cast Thyself down. For it is written that .He has given His angels charge over Thee, and in their hands shall they bear Thee up, lest Thou dash Thy foot against a stone." Jesus said to him, "it is written again .Thou shalt not tempt the Lord Thy God." Again the devil took Him up into a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them, and said to Him, "All these will I give Thee, if falling down Thou wilt adore me." Then Jesus said to him, "Begone Satan! for it is written, .The Lord thy God shalt thou adore, and Him only shalt thou serve." Then the devil left Him. And, behold, angels came and ministered to Him.

Credo.
