goodness in Unity of Spirit, with thee our Head, and by thee and thy Spirit, with all the company of them that are truly thine, who are thy spiritual and mystical Body, and our spiritual and Christian brethren. Hear us, our Saviour Christ, for thy Name's sake, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen. ALMIGHTY God, our Heavenly Father, A who didst suffer thine Apostle Peter, presuming on his own power, miserably to fall, not only in the denial of his Master Christ, for fear of an handmaid, but also in forswearing and cursing of himself if ever he knew him : Grant us, we beseech thee, merciful Father, that we neither presume on our own might and power, but being in our own hearts humble and lowly, acknowledging our own infirmity, frailty, and weakness, may ever in all our affairs receive at thy mighty hand strength and comfort, to the acceptable performance of thy holy and blessed will. Hear us, our Heavenly Father, for our Lord Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.

BLESSED Saviour Jesu Christ, who in

that great heaviness of thy soul and intolerable anguish which thou sustainedst before thy Passion, didst fall down upon thy face in prayer unto thy Heavenly Father: Give us grace and the aid of thy Holy Spirit, that we likewise in all heaviness of mind, and troubles of this world, may run evermore by most humble and instant prayer unto the aid and comfort of our Heavenly Father. Hear us, our Saviour Christ, for thy Name's sake, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen. ALMIGHTY God, Eternal Father, we do A remember that in the condemnation of thine own dearly beloved Son, that most innocent Lamb our Saviour Jesus Christ, the judge did sit, witnesses were brought, Christ was presented and condemned, and all truth there was trodden under foot, all unrighteousness did reign, and innocency was condemned. O most gracious Lord and Father. grant unto our heads and rulers, that they may ever in all their judgments judge according to true justice and equity, without corruption, partiality, and wicked dissimulation, to the oppression of wickedness and to the maintenance of thy everlasting truth, justice, honour, and glory. Hear us, our Heavenly Father, for our Lord Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.

And let thy Passion pardon win
For what we have offended in

Thought, or word, or deed of sin.
And as thy mercy wipes away
What we have done amiss to-day,

So now that night returns again
Our bodies and our souls refrain

From spot or taint of sinful stain.
Let not dull sleep oppress our eyes,
Nor us the enemy surprise ;

Nor fearful dreams our minds affright,
While the blackness of the night

Holds from us the cheerful light.
To thee who dost by rest renew
Our wasted strength, we humbly sue

That when we shall unclose our eyes
Pure and chaste we may arise

To make our morning sacrifice.
Honour, Lord, to thee be done,
O thou Blessed Virgin's Son,

With the Father and the Spirit,
As is thine eternal merit,
Ever and ever to inherit. Amen.

ON RISING IN THE MORNING. * In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. IN the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I I rise, who with the Father and the Holy Ghost created me, and redeemed me from eternal death by his Precious Blood : may he direct me, guard me, bless me, lead me into every good work, and guide and strengthen me therein; and after this miserable and perishing life lead me to that blessed life which shall last for ever and ever. Amen. OUR Father, which art in heaven, Hal

lowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

HYMN. Ales diei nuncius.
The winged herald of the day
Proclaims the morn's approaching ray;
And Christ the Lord our souls excites,
And so to endless life invites.
