Concede nos famulos tuos, quaesumus, Domine Deus, perpetua mentis et corporis sanitate gaudere, et gloriosa beatae Mariae semper Virginis intercessione, a praesenti liberari tristitia, et aetema-perfrui laetitia.

Today's readings are being proclaimed in Latin to honor the Language our Association holds in special regard.

First Reading (Sit) Lectio libri Proverbiorum

A reading from the book of Proverbs (8:22-31)

Dominus possedit me in initio viarum suarum, antequam quidquam faceret a principio; ab aeterno ordinata sum et ex antiquis, antequam terra fieret. Nondum erant abyssi, et ego iam concepta eram, necdum fontes graves aquis, priusquam montes demergerentur, ante colles

.. "".

ego parturiebar. Adhuc terram non fecerat et campos et initium glebae orbis terrae. Quando

praeparabat caelos, aderam, quando certa lege et gyro vallabat abyssos, quando nubes .., firmabat sursum, et praevaluerunt fontes abyssi, quando circumdabat mari terminum suum et aquis, ne transirent fines suos, quando iecit fundamenta terrae, cum eo eram ut artifex: delectatio eius per .singulos dies, ludens coram eo omni tempore, ludens in or15e,'terrarum, et

deliciae meae esse cum filiis hominum. '\~')N'·


The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his ways, before he made anything from the


beginning. I was set up from eternity, and of old before the earth was made. The depths were

not as yet,and I was already conceived. neither had the fountains of waters as yet sprung out:

The mountains with their huge bulk had not as yet been established: before the hills I was brought forth: He had n6! yet made the earth, nor the rivers, nor the poles ofthe world. When he prepared the heavens, I was present: when with a certain law and compass he enclosed the depths: When he established the sky above, and poised the fountains of waters: When he compassed the sea with its bounds, and set a law to the waters that they should not pass their limits: when be balanced the foundations of the earth; I was with him forming all things: and was delighted every day, playing before him at all times; Playing in the world: and my delights were to be with the children of men.

At the conclusion of the reading:

Congregation may join choir

Lectio Sancti Evangelii secundum Lucam

Loquente Iesu ad turbas, extollens vocem quaedam mulier de turba dixit illi: Beatus venter,

qui teportavit, et ubera, quae suxisti. At ille dixit: Quinimmo beati, qui audiunt verbum Dei

et custodiunt illud. .


And it came to pass, as Jesus spoke to the crowd, a certain woman from thecrowd, lifting up her voice, said to him: Blessed is the womb that bore You and the breast that fed You. But he said: rather, blessed are they who hear the word of God, and keep it.
