PSALM OF THE DAY
Antiphon:
Every day will I bless you, and I will praise your name
for ever and ever.
Psalm 145
I will extol you, O my God and King,
and I will bless your name forever and ever.

Every day will I bless you,
and I will praise your name forever and ever.

Great is the Lord and highly to be praised;
his greatness is unsearchable.

Generation after generation praises your works
and proclaims your might.

They speak of the splendor of your glorious majesty
and tell of your wondrous works.

They discourse of the power of your terrible deeds
and declare your greatness.

They publish the fame of your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of your justice.

The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness.

The Lord is good to all
and compassionate toward all his works.

Let all your works give you thanks, O Lord,
and let your faithful ones bless you.

Let them discourse of the glory of you kingdom
and speak of your might,

Making known to men your might
and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.

Your kingdom is a kingdom for all ages,
and you dominion endures through all generations.

The Lord is faithful in all his words
and holy in all his works.

The Lord lifts up all who are falling
and raises up all who are bowed down.

The eyes of all look hopefully to you,
and you give them their food in due season;

You open your hand
and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

The Lord is just in all his ways
and holy in all his works.

The Lord is near to all who call upon him,
to all who call upon him in truth.

He fulfills the desire of those who fear him,
he hears their cry and saves them.

The Lord keeps all who love him,
but all the wicked he will destroy.

May my mouth speak the praise of the Lord,
and may all flesh bless his holy name
for ever and ever.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
now and for ever. Amen.

Antiphon: Every day will I bless you, and I will praise your name
for ever and ever.

SECOND PRAYER
Lord, have mercy on us and save us.
O Lord,
prepare for us a place in that world of happiness and glory
that you have made ready for your chosen ones;
grant eternal rest to all those who in sincere faith, have
left this passing world.
Forgive them and all our faults, and
with all the saints, we shall give thanks to you.
To you be glory, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
now and for ever.
Amen.
EVENING PSALMS
Psalm 141:1-4
O Lord, to you I call; hasten to me;
harken to my voice when I call upon you.
Let my prayer come like incense before you;
the lifting up of my hands, like the evening sacrifice.
O Lord, set a watch before my mouth,
a guard at the door of my lips.

Let not my heart incline to the evil
of engaging in deeds of wickedness
With men who are evildoers;
and let me not partake of their dainties.
Psalm 142
With aloud voice I cry out to the Lord;
with a loud voice I beseech the Lord.
My complaint I pour out before him;
before him I lay bare my distress.
When my spirit is faint within me,
you know my path.
In the way along which I walk
they have hid a trap for me.
I look to the right to see,
but there is no one who pays me heed.
I have lost all means of escape;
there is no one who cares for my life.
I cry out to you, O Lord:
I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land
of the living.”
Attend to my cry,
for I am brought low indeed.
Rescue me from my persecutors,
for they are too strong for me.
Lead me forth from prison,
that I may give thanks to your name.
The just shall gather around me
when you have been good to me.

Psalm 119:105-112
A lamp to my feet is your word,
a light to my path.
I resolve and swear
to keep your just ordinances.
I am very much afflicted;
O Lord, give me life according to your word.
Accept, O Lord, the free homage of my mouth,
and teach me your decrees.
Though constantly I take my life in my hands,
yet I forget not your law.
The wicked have laid a snare for me,
but from your precepts I have not strayed.
Your decrees are my inheritance forever;
the joy of my heart they are.
I intend in my heart to fulfill you statutes
always to the letter.
Psalm 117
Praise the Lord, all you nations;
glorify him, all you peoples!
For steadfast is his mercy toward us,
and the truth of the Lord endures for ever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
now and for ever. Amen.
Alleluia.

Psalms.

HOOSOYO
PROEMION
Praise, glory and honor to the One who raises the dead, and
awaken those who sleep in the dust;
God of spirits and bodies, and judge of the living
and the dead,
known in divine Unity and acclaimed in the trinity
of persons,
he is adored and glorified.
To the infinitely good Lord is due glory and honor this night, and all the days of our lives,
now and for ever.
Amen.
SEDRO
O God, we implore you;
when those on your right will be glorified, and those on
your left condemned;
when the fire of judgment will illumine the just and inflame
the impious;
when those on each side will have their destiny, with no
possibility of change,
grant that those who died in the faith, clothed themselves
with you and receive you the blessed food for their
journey, may behold your smiling face and rest in the
heavenly dwelling place of light and joy;
in the new Jerusalem, city of saints, with Abraham, Isaac
and Jacob.
Exalt their memory on your heavenly altar,
and when you call us to join them,
Prepare for us the eternal happiness to which we were called
through perfect faith in you.
With them we shall give you glory and thanksgiving, for ever.
Amen.
QOLO
Let us remember the prophets and apostles who preached the
truth among the nations; and the martyrs and saints who
obtained the cross of victory.
Let us remember Mary, the Mother of God, as well as the Church and her children, and all who rest in the hope of resurrection.

ETRO
O God,
drawing from your immense and inexhaustible treasure,
we offer you this incense (prayer)
for the sanctification of the just and the repentance of
sinners;
for the repose and happy memory of all who embraced truth
and accomplished justice,
and especially for your servants whom we remember this day.
Grant them eternal rest in the dwelling place of the just where all rejoice in you;
May their prayer intercede for us.
To you be glory for ever.
Amen.
READINGS
MAZMOORO
Now, as the sun goes down and the night extends its dominion,
Lord, may your mercy be upon us.
Now, as the sun gathers up its rays and darkness envelops the
earth, O Son of God, may your compassion be upon us.
In your mercy, you accepted the offering of the righteous before us, accept now our praise and receive our prayer.
SCRIPTURE READINGS
A Reading from the Prophet Isaiah
Isaiah 13: 5-14
They come from a far-off country, and from the end of the heavens, The LORD and the instruments of his wrath, to destroy all the land. Howl, for the day of the LORD is near; as destruction from the Almighty it comes. Therefore all hands fall helpless, the bows of the young men fall from their hands. Every man’s heart melts in terror. Pangs and sorrows take hold of them, like a woman in labor they writhe; They look aghast at each other, their faces aflame. Lo, the day of the LORD comes, cruel, with wrath and burning anger; To lay waste the land and destroy the sinners within it! The stars and constellations of the heavens send forth no light; The sun is dark when it rises, and the light of the moon does not shine. Thus I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their guilt. I will put an end to the pride of the arrogant, the insolence of tyrants I will humble. I will make mortals more rare than pure gold, men, than gold of Ophir. For this I will make the heavens tremble and the earth shall be shaken from its place, At the wrath of the LORD of hosts on the day of his burning anger.
Like a hunted gazelle, or a flock that no one gathers, Every man shall turn to his kindred and flee to his own land.

SUPPLICATION
Son of God, grant eternal rest to your servants in the heavenly kingdom with your saints.
Son of God, whose voice calls forth the dead from the tomb,

hear our petitions and forgive your servants who have
departed from us.
On the great Dawn when all secrets will be judged and all hidden deeds revealed;
when the trumpet will summon the dead descendants of
Adam and all will stand before the throne of God;
When all the nations of the world will be in array before him, and each person, with no adornment save his deeds, will
stand before him;
At that moment, when justice will follow its course, be compassionate toward the people you have saved, O Son of God.
By your merciful power, give life to those you have
redeemed by your blood,
and rescue from the darkness those who have partaken
of your body.
Glory to the Father, who has commanded the judgement of all
human beings;
adoration of the Son, whose judgment is perfect;
thanksgiving to the Spirit, who rejects privilege and
partiality and treats each one in justice;
glory be to God!
O Christ, who prayed at the cup of death might pass away
from you, take away from us the cup of the second death,
and have mercy on us.
Exalt, O Lord, the memory of your Mother and your saints,
through their prayer grant pardon to us and our deceased.
