Be merciful unto us.
Spare us, O Lord!
Be merciful unto us.
Graciously hear us, O Lord!

From the temptations and snares of the devil, 
Deliver us, O Lord. **
From the concupiscence of the flesh, **
From the concupiscence of the eyes, **
From the pride of life, **
From blindness of heart, **
From all envy and hatred, **
From all sloth and inordinate sadness, **
From anger and all ill-will, **
From all impatience and faintheartedness, **
(From the transgression of our vows,) **
From all occasions of sin, **
From a sudden and unprovided death, **
From the everlasting curse, **
By Thy eternal generation from the Father, **
By Thy Nativity in time from Thy holy Mother, **
By Thy most holy life and conversation, **
By Thy most bitter Passion and Death, **
By Thy glorious Resurrection and Ascension, **
By Thy coming to Judgment, **
By the merits and intercessions of Thy saints, **

We sinners:
Beseech Thee to hear us.

That before all things, we may seek the Kingdom of God and His justice, 

We beseech Thee, hear us. ***

That we may learn of Thee, to be meek and humble of heart, ***

That we may deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow Thee, ***

That we may willingly and eagerly take upon us Thy sweet yoke, and Thy light burden, ***

That we may be careful to preserve the unity of the spirit, in the bond of peace, ***

That, walking in the spirit, we may not accomplish the desires of the flesh, ***

That Thou vouchsafe to raise up, and to cherish in us the spirit of poverty, ***

That Thou vouchsafe to give us compunction of heart, and the gift of tears, ***

That Thou vouchsafe to grant us the perfect mortification of our senses, and of our own will, ***

(That Thou vouchsafe to persevere in Thy holy service our Abbots, Superiors, and all the communities intrusted to them,) ***

That Thou vouchsafe to grant eternal rest to the souls of our brethren and benefactors, ***

That Thou grant us to persevere to the end in faith, hope and charity, That Thou vouchsafe to hear us, *** 

Son of God, ***

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world:
Spare us, O Lord!
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world:
Graciously hear us, O Lord!
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world:
Have mercy on us, O Lord!

V. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, ye just.
R. And glory, all ye right of heart.

Let us pray: 

We beseech Thee, O Almighty God, through the merits and examples of our holy Father Saint Benedict, of his disciples Saints Placidus and Maurus, of his virgin sister Saint Scholastica, and of all the holy Monks and Nuns who have served Thee under his standard and guidance, to renew in us Thy Holy Spirit, that by His inspiration, we may strenuously fight against the world, the flesh, and the devil. And since there is no palm of victory without the labor of a contest, grant us patience in adversity, constancy in temptation, and counsel in dangers; give us the purity of chastity, the desire of poverty, the fruit of obedience, and a faithful observance of regular discipline: that strengthened by Thy consolation, and bound together by fraternal charity, we may serve Thee with united efforts, and may so pass through these temporal things, as to deserve at last to arrive at our eternal country. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.
