Tradition of the Faith and Psalm 44 : 2
Gaudeamus omnes in Domino, diem festum celebrantes sub honore Beatae Mariae Virginis : de cujus sollemnitate gaudent Angeli et collaudant Filium Dei.
Eructavit cor meum verbum bonum : dico ego opera mea Regi.
Response : Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto, sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper : et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
Let us rejoice in the Lord, keeping a feast day in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary, for whose celebration the angels rejoice and unite in praising the Son of God.
My heart had uttered a good word. I speak my works to the King.
Response : Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Deus, cujus Unigenitus per vitam, mortem et resurrectionem suam nobis salutis aeternae praemia comparavit : concede, quaesumus; ut, haec mysteria sacratissimo Beatae Mariae Virginis Rosario recolentes, et imitemur, quod continent, et quod promittunt, assequamur. Per eumdem Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum Filium Tuum, qui Tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.
O God, Whose only begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection had purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech You, that, meditating on the mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise. 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.
Collect (For Commemoration of Pope St. Mark)
Gregem Tuum, Pastor Aeterne, placatus intende : et per Beatum Marcum Summum Pontificem perpetua protectione custodi, quem totius Ecclesiae praestitisti esse pastorem. Per Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum Filium Tuum, qui Tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.
O Eternal Shepherd, may You look favourably upon Your flock, which we beseech You to guard and keep forevermore through the Blessed Mark, Supreme Pontiff, whom You had chosen to be the chief shepherd of the whole Church. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who with You lives and reigns in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.
