EPISTLE for the FIRST MASS OF THE DAY:   Corinthians 15: 51-57
Léctio Epístolæ beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Corinthos. Fratres: Ecce mystérium vobis dico: Omnes quidem resurgémus, sed non omnes immutébimur, In moménto, in ictu óculi, in novíssima tuba, et mórtui resúrgent incorrúpti: et nos immutábimur. Oppórtet enim corruptíbile hoc indúere incorruptiónem: et mortále hoc indúere immortalitátem. Cum autem mortále hoc indúerit immortalitátem tunc fiet sermo, qui scriptus est: Absórpta est mors in victória tua. Ubi est, mors, victória tua? Ubi est, mors, stímulus tuus? Stímulus autem mortis peccátum est: virtus vero peccáti lex. Deo autem grátias, qui dedit nobis victóriam per Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum.
Deo Gratias.
Lesson from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians. Brethren, we shall indeed rise again, but we shall not all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall rise again, incorruptible and we shall be changed. For this corruptible, must put on incorruption and this mortal must put on immortality. And when this mortal hath put on immortality then shall come to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting? Now the sting of death is sin: and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who hath given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Thanks be to God.

EPISTLE for the SECOND MASS OF THE DAY:   2 Machabees 12: 43-48
Léctio libri Machabæórum. In diébus illis: Vir fortíssimus Judas, facta coilatióne, duódecim. míllia drachmas argénti misit Jerosólymam offérri pro peccátis mortuórum sacrifícium, bene et religióse de resurrectióne cógitans: (nisi enim eos, qui cecíderant, resurrectúros speráret, supérfluum viderétur et vanum oráre pro mórtuis) et quia considerábat quod hi, qui cum pietáte dormitiónem accéperant, óptjmam habérent repósitam grátiam. Sancta ergo, et salúbris est cogitátio pro defúnctis exoráre, ut a peccátis solvéntur.
Deo Gratias.
Lesson from the Book of Machabees. In those days, the most valiant man Judas, making a gathering, sent twelve thousand drachmas of silver to Jerusalem for sacrifice to be offered for the sins of the dead, thinking well and religiously concerning the resurrection (for if he had not hoped that they that were slain should rise again, it would have seemed superfluous and vain to pray for the dead); and because he considered that they who had fallen asleep with godliness, had great grace laid up for them. It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from sins.
Thanks be to God.

EPISTLE of the THIRD MASS OF THE DAY:   Apocalypse 14: 13
Léctio libri Apocalypsis beáti Joánnis Apóstoli. In diébus illis: Audivi vocem de coelo, dicéntem mihi: Scribe: Beáti mórtui, qui in Dómino moriúntur. Amodo jam licit Spíritus, ut requiéscant a labóribus suis: ópera enim illórum sequúntur illos.
Deo Gratias.
Lesson from the book of the Apocalypse of Blessed John the Apostle. In those days I heard a voice from Heaven, saying to me, Write, blessed are the dead, who die in the Lord. From henceforth now, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, for their works follow them.
Thanks be to God.

GRADUAL:  
Réquiem ætérnam dona eis Dómine: et lux perpétua luceat eis. V. In memória ætérna erit justus: ab auditióne mala non timébit.
Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. V. The just shall be in everlasting remembrance; he shall not fear the evil hearing.

TRACT:  
Absólve, Dómine, ánimas ómnium fidélium defunctórum ab omni vínculo delictórum. V. Et grátia tua illis succurénte, mereántur evádere judícium ultiónis. V. Et lucis ætérnæ beatitúdine pérfrui.
Absolve, O Lord, the souls of all the faithful departed from every bond of sins. V. And by the help of Thy grace may they be enabled to escape the avenging judgment. V. And enjoy the bliss of everlasting light.


SEQUENCE:  
Dies iræ, dies illa,
Solvet sæclum in favilla,
Teste David cum Sybilla.
Quantus tremor est futúrus,
Quando Judex est ventúrus.
Cuncta stricte discussúrus!
Tuba, mirum spargems sonum,
Per sepúlcra regiónum.
Coget omnes ante thronum,
Mors stupébit et natúra,
Cum resúrget creatúra,
Judicánti responsúra.
Liber scriptus proferétur.
In quo totum continétur,
Unde mundus judicétur.
Judex ergo cum sedébit,
Quidquid latet, apparébit:
Nil inúltum remanébit.
Quid sum miser tunc dictúrus?
Quem patrónum rogatúrus,
Cum vix justus sit secúrus?
Rex treméndæ majestátis,
Qui salvándos salvas gratis,
Salva me, fons pietátis,
Recordáre, Jesu pie,
Quod sum causa tuæ viæ:
Ne me perdas illa die.
Quærens me, sedísti lassus:
Redemísti, crucem passus:
Tantus labor non sit cassus
Juste Judex ultiónis,
Donum fac remissiónis
Ante diem ratiónis.
Ingemísco, tamquam reus;
Culpa rubet vultus meus:
Supplicánti parce, Deus.
Qui Maríam absolivísti,
Et latrónem exaudísti,
Mihi quoque spem dedísti.
Preces meæ non sunt dignæ:
Sed tu bonus fac benígne
Ne perénni cremer igne.
Inter oves locum præsta,
Et ab hædis me sequéstra,
Státuens in parte dextra.
Confutátis maledíctis,
Flammis ácribus addíctis:
Voca me cum benedíctis.
Oro supplex et acclínis,
Cor contrítum quasi cinis,
Gere curam mei finis.
Lacrymósa dies illa.
Qui resúrget ex favíilla
Judicándus homo reus:
Huic ergo parce, Deus:
Pie Jesu Dómine, Dona eis réquiem.
Amen.
Day of wrath and doom impending,
David's word with Sibyl's blending,
Heaven and earth in ashes ending.
O what fear man's bosom rendeth,
When from Heaven the Judge descendeth,
On whose sentence all dependeth.
Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth,
Through earth's sepulchres it ringeth,
All before the throne it bringeth.
Death is struck, and nature quaking,
All creation is awaking,
To its Judge an answer making.
Lo, the book exactly worded.
Wherein all hath been recorded,
Thence shall judgment be awarded.
When the Judge His seat attaineth,
And each hidden deed arraigneth,
Nothing unavenged remaineth.
What shall I, frail man, be pleading?
Who for me be interceding
When the just are mercy needing?
King of majesty tremendous,
Who dost free salvation send us,
Fount of pity, then befriend us.
Think, kind Jesus, my salvation
Caused Thy wondrous Incarnation.
Leave me not to reprobation.
Faint and weary Thou hast sought me,
On the Cross of suffering bought me,
Shall such grace be vainly brought me?
Righteous Judge, for sin's pollution
Grant Thy gift of absolution,
Ere that day of retribution.
Guilty now I pour my moaning,
All my shame with anguish owning,
Spare, O God, Thy suppliant groaning.
Through the sinful woman shriven,
Through the dying thief forgiven,
Thou to me a hope hast given.
Worthless are my prayers and sighing,
Yet, good Lord, in grace complying,
Rescue me from fires undying.
With Thy sheep a place provide me,
From the goats afar divide me,
To Thy right hand do Thou guide me.
When the wicked are confounded,
Doomed to flames of woe unbounded,
Call me with Thy Saints surrounded.
Low I kneel with heart's submission,
See, like ashes, my contrition,
Help me in my last condition.
Ah! That day of tears and mourning,
From the dust of earth returning,
Man for judgment must prepare him,
Spare, O God, in mercy spare him.
Lord, all-pitying, Jesus blest,
Grant them Thine eternal rest.
Amen.

R.Gloria tibi, Domine

In illo tempore: Dixit Jesus turbis Judæórum: "Amen, amen dico vobis, quia venit hora, et nunc est, quando mórtui áudient vocem Fílii Dei: et qui audíerint, vivent. Sicut enim Pater habet vitam in semetípso: sic dedit et Fílio vitam habére in semetípso: et potestátem dedit et ei judícium fácere, quia Fílius hóminis est. Nolíte mirári, hoc, quia venit hora, in qua omnes, grave qui in monuméntis sunt, áudient vocem Fílii Dei: et procédent qui bona fecérunt, in resurrectiónem vitæ: qui vero mala egérunt, in resurrectiónem judícií."

At that time, Jesus said to the multitude of the Jews: "Amen, amen, I say unto you, that the hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in Himself, so He hath given to the Son also to have life in Himself; and He hath given Him power to do judgment, because He is the Son of Man. Wonder not at this, for the hour cometh wherein all that are in the shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that have done good things shall come forth unto the resurrection of life, but they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment."
Praise be to Christ

In illo tempore: Dixit Jesus turbis Judæórum: "Omne, quod dat Mihi Pater, ad Me véniet: et eum, qui venit ad Me, non ejíciam foras: qula descéndátem Meam, sed voluntátem ejus, qui misit Me. Hæac est autem volúntas ejus, qui misit Me, Patris: ut omne, quod dedit Mihi non perdam ex eo, sed resúscitem illud in novíssimo die. Hæc est autem volúntas Patris Mei, qui misit Me: ut omnis, qui videt Fílium, et credit in eum, hábeat vitam ætérnam, et ego resuscitábo eum in novíssimo die."

Now this is the will of the Father Who sent Me, that of all that He hath given Me, I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again in the last day; and this is the will of My Father that sent Me, that every one who seeth the Son, and believeth in Him, may have life everlasting; and I will raise him up in the last day."

In illo tempore: Dixit Jesus turbis Judæórum: "Ego sum panis vivus, qui de coelo descéndi. Si quis manducáverit ex hoc pane, vivet in ætérnum: et panis, quem ego dabo, caro mea est pro mundi vita." Litigábant ergo Judæi ad ínvincem, dicéntes: Quómodo potest hic nobis carnem suam dare ad manducándum? Dixit ergo eis Jesus: "Amen, amen dico vobis: Nisi manducavéritis carnem Fílii hóminis, et bibéritis ejus sánguinem, non habébitis vitam in vobis. Qui mandúcat meam carnem, et bibit meum sánguinem, habet vitam ætérnam: et ego resuscitábo eum in novíssimo die."

If any man eat of this bread he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is My flesh for the life of the world." The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us His flesh to eat? Then Jesus said to them, "Amen , amen, I say unto you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you shall not have life in you. He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, hath everlasting life and I will raise him up in the last day."

It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God through Christ our Lord. In whom the hope of a blessed resurrection hath shown forth unto us; so that those who are saddened by the certain lot of dying, may be consoled by the promise of a future deathless life. For to Thy faithful people, O Lord, life is changed, not taken away: and when the home of this earthly sojourn is dissolved, an eternal dwelling place is being prepared in the heavens. And therefore with Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dominations and with all the hosts of the Heavenly army, we sing the hymn of Thy glory, evermore saying:
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY...
