nations in the unity of the faith, give to all christian princes and to their counsels thy plentiful grace, and fill their hearts with the new commandment of love which, when leaving this world, thou didst impart unto thy disciples ; that by it, all may know them to belong to the number of thy elect, and to be worthy of the name of christians. Grant that they may never be led to attempt anything contrary to thy divine glory and the peace of thy Church. But rather let them endeavour with united strength to win the kingdom of everlasting peace, and to lead on, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the people whom thou hast subjected to their sway. Amen.
Our Father, &c. Hail Mary, &c. V. Let peace be in thy strength. R. And abundance in thy towers. O God, from whom proceed all holy desires, right counsels, and just works, give to thy seryants that peace which the world, cannot give; that our hearts may be obedient to thy orders ; and that, all fears of enemies being unknown, our lives may be spent in peace under thy prptection. Through, &c. AN OFFERING TO
HOLY TRINITY OF THE FOREGOING ENDEAVOURS TO INDULGENCE.
I have now, O Holy Trinity, endeavoured to fulfil whatever was appointed to obtain this indulgence. Oh, let thy goodness make amends
for the slightness of my attempts ; let thy goodness ratify the hope that my prayers have been available to the end for which they were offered. Receive, O Holy Trinity, my endeavours, such as they were, and let the passion and death of our Lord Jesus Christ supply for all my defects; and permit me (or N. N. for whose soul I have desired this indulgence) to partake of the plenary pardon for which I have prayed. And for this benefit may heaven and earth join me in de claring thy praises, now and for ever. Amen.
Our Father, &c. Hail, Mary, &c. Conclude with the hymn of Sts. Ambrose and
Augustine, Te Deum, page 134.

Anthem. Remember not, O Lord, our of fences, nor those of our parents ; and take not revenge of our sins.
How lovely are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts. My soul longeth and fainteth for the courts of the Lord.
My heart and flesh have rejoiced in the living God.
For the sparrow hath found herself a house, and the turtle dove a nest for herself where she may lay her young ones.
Thy altars, O Lord of hosts, my king and
Blessed are they that dwell in thy house ; they shali praise thee for ever and ever.
Blessed is the man whose help is from thee : he will strive gradually to arise to thee from this valley of tears in which he is placed.
And the law-giver shall bless his endeavours : he shall go from virtue to virtue: the God of gods shall be seen in Sion.
O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer : give ear, O God of Jacob.
Behold, O God, our protector ; and look on the face of thy Christ.
For better is one day in thy courts than thousands away from thee.
I have chosen to be lowly in the house of my God, rather than to dwell in the halls of sinners.
For God loveth mercy and truth; the Lord will give grace and glory.
He will not deprive them that walk in innocence of good things. O Lord of hosts ; blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
Glory to the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, &c.
Lord, thou hast blessed thy land : thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.
Thou hast forgiven the sins of thy people ; thou hast covered all their sins.
Thou hast assuaged all thine anger : thou hast turned away from the wrath of thine indignation.
Convert us, O God our Saviour'; and turn away thine anger from us.
Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? or wilt thou extend thy wrath from generation to generation ?
Thou wilt turn, O Lord, and enliven us; and thy people shall rejoice in thee.
Shew us, O Lord, thy mercy, and grant us thy salvation.
I will hear what the Lord God will speak in me: for he will speak peace unto his people :
And unto his saints; and unto them that are converted to the heart.
Surely his salvation is near unto them that fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.
Mercy and truth have met each other: righteousness and peace have kissed.
Truth hath sprung out of the earth, and justice hath looked down from heaven.
For the Lord will give goodness : and our earth shall yield her fruit.
Justice shall walk before him : and guide his steps.
Glory be to the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, &c.
Bow down thine ear, O Lord, and hear me for I am needy and poor.
Preserve my soul, for I am thine : save thy servant, O God, that trusteth in thee :
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I have cried to thee all the day. Give joy to the soul of thy servant : for to thee, O Lord, I have lifted up my soul :
For thou, O Lord, art sweet and mild : and plenteous in mercy to all that call upon thee.
Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer, and attend to the voice of my petition.
I have called upon thee in the day of my trouble ; because thou hast heard me.
Among the gods of the heathens, there is none like unto thee, O Lord : and there are no works like unto thine.
All the nations thou hast made shall come and adore before thee, O Lord : and they shall glorify thy name.
For thou art great, and dost wonderful things : thou alone art God.
Lead me, O Lord, in thy way, and I will walk in thy truth : let my heart rejoice that it may fear thy name.
