Liturgical Colour : Violet

Introit

Psalm 21 : 20, 22 and 2

Domine, ne longe facias auxilium tuum a me, ad defensionem meam aspice : libera me de ore leonis, et a cornibus unicornium humilitatem meam.

Deus, Deus meus, respice in me : quare me dereliquisti? Longe a salute mea verba delictorum meorum.

Response : Domine, ne longe facias auxilium tuum a me, ad defensionem meam aspice : libera me de ore leonis, et a cornibus unicornium humilitatem meam.

 

English translation

O Lord, do not remove Your help to a distance from me, look toward my defense, deliver me from the lion’s mouth, and my lowness from the horns of the unicorns.

O God, my God, look upon me, why have You forsaken me? Far from my salvation are the words of my sins.

Response : O Lord, do not remove Your help to a distance from me, look toward my defense, deliver me from the lion’s mouth, and my lowness from the horns of the unicorns.

 

Collect

Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui humano generi, ad imitandum humilitatis exemplum, Salvatorem nostrum carnem sumere et crucem subire fecisti : concede propitius; ut et patientiae ipsius habere documenta et resurrectionis consortia mereamur. Per eumdem Dominum Jesum Christum Filium Tuum, Qui Tecum vivis et regnas in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.

 

English translation

Almighty and eternal God, who in order to give mankind an example of humility, did will that our Saviour should assume our flesh and suffer on the cross, grant in Your mercy that we are found worthy of the heritage of His patience and the fellowship of His resurrection. Through the same Lord Jesus Christ Your Son, who with You lives and reigns in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.
