Ribbon Placement: Liturgy of the Hours Vol. I: Ordinary: 661 Proper of Seasons: 450 (Midday) Psalter: Monday, Week I, 707 Midday Prayer for December 29, the Fifth Day in the Octave of Christmas God, come to my assistance. – Lord, make haste to help me. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia. HYMN O heavenly Word, eternal Light, begotten of the Father’s might, who in these latter days wast born for blessing to a world forlorn; pour light upon us from above, and fire our hearts with ardent love, that, as we hear thy truth today, all wrong may burn away; and when, as judge, thou drawest nigh the secrets of our hearts to try, to recompense each hidden sin and bid the saints their reign begin; O let us not, for evil past, be driven from thy face at last, but with thy saints for evermore behold thee, love thee, and adore. To God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit ever one, Praise, honor, might and glory be from age to age eternally. “O Heavenly Word, Eternal Light” performed by The Schola Cantorum of St. Peter’s in the Loop Words: Verbum supernum prodiens, Attributed to St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), ca. 1263 PSALMODY Ant. Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart. Psalm 19B Praise of God who gave us the law of love You must be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48) The law of the Lord is perfect, it revives the soul. The rule of the Lord is to be trusted, it gives wisdom to the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, they gladden the heart. The command of the Lord is clear, it gives light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is holy, abiding for ever. The decrees of the Lord are truth and all of them just. They are more to be desired than gold, than the purest of gold and sweeter are they than honey, than honey from the comb. So in them your servant finds instruction; great reward is in their keeping. But who can detect all his errors? From hidden faults acquit me. From presumption restrain your servant and let it not rule me. Then shall I be blameless, clean from grave sin. May the spoken words of my mouth, the thoughts of my heart, win favor in your sight, O Lord, my rescuer, my rock! Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Psalm-prayer May our words in praise of your commandments find favor with you, Lord. May our faith prove we are not slaves, but sons, not so much subjected to your law as sharing your power. Psalm 7 Prayer of a god-fearing man who is being calumniated Here stand the judge, at our very door (James 5:9) I Lord God, I take refuge in you. From my pursuer save me and rescue me, lest he tear me to pieces like a lion and drag me off with no one to rescue me. Lord God, if my hands have done wrong, if I have paid back evil for good, I who saved my unjust oppressor: then let my foe pursue me and seize me, let him trample my life to the ground and lay my soul in the dust. Lord, rise up in your anger, rise against the fury of my foes; my God, awake! You will give judgment. Let the company of nations gather round you, taking your seat above them on high. The Lord is judge of the peoples. Give judgment for me, Lord; I am just and innocent of heart. Put an end to the evil of the wicked! Make the just stand firm, you who test mind and heart, O just God! Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. II God is the shield that protects me, who saves the upright of heart. God is a just judge slow to anger; but he threatens the wicked every day, men who will not repent. God will sharpen his sword; he has braced his bow and taken aim. For them he has prepared deadly weapons; he barbs his arrows with fire. Here is one who is pregnant with malice, who conceives evil and [...]
