V. The Lord be with you. R. And with thy spirit.
V. Let us bless the Lord. R. Thanks be to God.
Blessing: May the almighty and merciful Lord, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, bless and preserve us. R. Amen.
HAIL, holy Queen, mother of mercy! Hail, our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us. And after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray.
ALMIGHTY, everlasting God, who, by the co-operation of the Holy Ghost, didst so make ready the body andsoul of the glorious Virgin Mother, Mary, that she deserved to become a meet dwelling for thy Son: grant that we, who rejoice in her memory, may by her loving intercession be delivered from the evils that hang over us, and from everlasting death. Through the same Christ our Lord.
V. May the divine assistance remain always with us. R. Amen.
Ant. Purify me, O Lord * with hyssop, then I shall be clean; O wash me; I
shall be whiter than snow.
Ps. Have mercy on me, God, in your kindness. Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight- That You may be found just when You speak,
And blameless when You judge.Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
And in sin was i conceived
Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,And in the secret of my heart teach me wisdom. -----
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and unto the ages of ages Amen
The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary:
And she conceived of the Holy Spirit. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Behold the handmaid of the Lord: Be it done unto me according to Thy word. Hail Mary . . .
And the Word was made Flesh: And dwelt among us. Hail Mary . . .
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray: Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts; that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Christ Our Lord.
unique in Britain, is Pluscarden Benedictine Abbey, near Elgin.
It is the only medieval monastery in Britain still inhabited by monks and being used for its original purpose.
Pluscarden Abbey as we know it today owes its foundation to King Alexander II of Scotland in the year 1230. At the same time grants were made to two other sister houses, The community that served these churches was one of French Valliscaulians, a little-known order that shared some of the strictness of the Carthusian discipline with the spirit of fellowship that existed among the Cistercians, and only at these three places was this order represented in Scotland or England.
Committed to no external duties, the monks of Pluscarden conceive their primary service to lie in prayer, regular observance, the common life.
Pluscarden has chosen to keep Latin in the Mass and the divine office, except for readings. The whole office, the opus Dei as drawn by St. Benedict, has moreover been retained and apart from Vigils, is sung, with the community Mass as the liturgical point of focus; as well as grace in the refectory together with such devotions as are prompted by the season. When not at work in the grounds, or at the crafts which are carriedon in workshops and studios, the monks are employed either in the domestic jobs which inevitably take up the day in a monastery which does not engage paid labour or in the lectio (meditative reading and study) to which St. Benedict gives much prominence in his Rule. Thus the monks do their own laundry, mending, cooking, painting, repairing and maintenance generally.
And the light shineth in darkness: and the darkness did not comprehend it.//et lux in tenebris lucet et tenebrae eam non conprehenderunt.../erat lux vera quae inluminat omnem hominem venientem in mundum/...That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world./
Gregorian Chant is a musical repertory made up of chants used in the liturgical services of the Roman Catholic Church. In fact, the liturgical tradition which the Church has given us is a vocal, monophonic music composed in Latin using sacred texts from the Ancient and New Testaments. This is why Gregorian Chant has often been called a "sung Bible". Linked intimately to the liturgy in this way, the goal of the Gregorian melodies is to favor spiritual growth, reveal the gifts of God and the full coherence of the Christian message.
What we call Gregorian chant today first appears distinctly in the Roman repertory of the fifth and sixth centuries. Its implimentation and perhaps some of its composition was in the hands of a group of ministers in a service specially dedicated to the Roman basilicas, the schola cantorum. Gregorian chant also appears to have been an aural music, that is, transmitted by ear and committed to memory - like all other music of the world at the time.
