V. Adiutorium nostrum in nomine Domini.

R. Qui fecit caelum et terram.

Exorcizo vos, numismata, per Deum + Patrem omnipotentem, qui fecit caelum et terram, mare et omnia, quae in eis sunt. Omnis virtus adversarii, omnis exercitus diaboli, et omnis incursus, omne phantasma satanae, eradicare et effugare, ab his numismatibus: ut fiant omnibus, qui eis usuri sunt, salus mentis et corporis: in nomine Patris + omnipotentis, et Iesu + Christi Filii eius, Domini nostri, et Spiritus + Sancti Paracliti, et in caritate eiusdem Domini nostri Iesu Christi, qui venturus est iudicare vivos et mortuos, et saeculum per ignem. R. Amen.

V. Dominus vobiscum.

R. Et cum spiritu tuo.

Oremus: Deus omnipotens, bonorum omnium largitor, supplices te rogamus, ut per intercessionem sancti Benedicti his sacris numismatibus tuam beneditionem + infundas, ut omnes qui ea gestaverint ac bonis operibus intenti fuerint, sanitatem mentis et corporis, et gratiam sanctificationis, atque indulgentias (nobis) concessas consequi mereantur, omnesque diaboli insidias et fraudes, per auxilium misericordiae tuae, studeant devitare et in conspectu tuo sancti et immaculati valeant apparere. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. R. Amen.

Et aspergatur aqua benedicta.

This is the blessing in English:

R. Who made heaven and earth.

In the name of God the Father + who made heaven and earth, the seas and all that is in them, I exorcise this medal against the power and attacks of the evil one. May all who use this medal devoutly be blessed with health of soul and body. In the name of the Father + almighty, of the Son + Jesus Christ our lord, and of the Holy + Spirit the Paraclete, and in the love of the same Lord Jesus Christ who will come on the last day to judge the living and the dead, and the world by fire. Amen.

Let us pray: Almighty God, the boundless source of all good things, we humbly ask that, through the intercession of St. Benedict, you pour out your blessings + upon this medal. May those who use it devoutly and earnestly strive to perform good works, be blessed by you with health of soul and body, the grace of a holy life, and remission of the temporal punishment due to sin. May they also with the help of your merciful love, resist the temptation of the evil one and strive to exercise true charity and justice toward all, so that one day they may appear sinless and holy in you sight. This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The medal is sprinkled with Holy Water.

How do I use the Monastic Diurnal?2022-03-07T16:57:47-06:00

Navigating the book

First of all you will notice that there are five sets of page numbers, dividing the book into major sections

  • 1* Temporal Cycle
  • 1 Weekly Psalter
  • [1] Sanctoral Cycle
  • (1) Commons of the saints
  • 1** Supplement with proper feasts

It is good to place a ribbon at the current place for each of these sections.  Within the weekly psalter, it is good to have one marker each for Prime, Lauds, Vespers, Compline and the little hours (Terce/Sext/None).

Compline

We will begin with this hour as it is the most simple and is the same every day. Simply go to page 256 and follow the text.  For the final antiphon to Our Lady, choose the one appropriate to the liturgical season. The monks usually conclude Compline with the Angelus.

Prime

Prime is also relatively simple. It begins with the Deus in adjutorium and the hymn Jam lucis orto sidere (only printed on Monday, page 1)

Then follows the antiphon.

  • On a feria: as in the psalter (see the different choices for the liturgical seasons)
  • On a 3rd class feast or higher: 1st antiphon of lauds from the feast in the temporal or sanctoral cycle.  If there are no proper antiphons, then the ones from the common of the saint are used.

After the three psalms found in the psalter, the antiphon is repeated.

The chapter Regi saeculorum and collect Domine Deus omnipotens are used every day of the year and are only printed on Monday (page 7).

N.B. Prime on Sunday is located on page 146, just before Sunday Terce.

Lauds

Lauds begins with the Deus in adjutorium and Ps. 66 (only printed on Sunday and Monday, pages 38 and 58). Then follow five antiphons and psalms.

  • On ferias and 3rd class feasts: they are taken from the psalter.
  • On 1st and 2nd class feasts: the antiphons are taken from the feast in the temporal or sanctoral cycle.  If there are no proper antiphons, then the ones from the common of the saint are used.  The psalms are the festal psalms as found on Sunday, page 44. These are psalms 92, 99, 62, Canticle of the Three Young Men, and the Laudate psalms (148, 149, and 150 said together without the Gloria Patri.)
  • On Sundays that are not 1st or 2nd class feasts: the Antiphons are from the psalter or the temporal cycle and the psalms are those given in the psalter for Sunday, page 39. These are
  • psalms 50, 117, 62, Canticle of the Three Young Men, and the Laudate psalms (148, 149, and 150 said together without the Gloria Patri.)

Then follows the chapter, brief response, hymn and Benedictus canticle with its antiphon as found in the psalter for ferial days and in the same place as the antiphons for feasts.  (However, on 3rd class feasts, the antiphons and psalms are from the psalter, while the remainder of the office is taken from the common of the saint.)  For your convenience, the Benedictus and Magnificat are printed on a handy card so you can easily find the text.

Then follows the Kyrie and Pater, followed by the Collect. The Collect is taken from

  • On ferias: the preceding Sunday
  • On feasts: the feast in the temporal or sanctoral cycle.  The same collect is usually said at all the hours except for Prime and Compline.

The office concludes with the Benedicamus Domino and verses Fidelium animae and Divinum auxilium (only printed on Sunday and Monday, pages 58 and 75).

Terce, Sext, and None

These hours begin with the Deus in adjutorium and the hymn. Then follows an antiphon:

  • On ferias: as in the psalter (see the different choices for the liturgical seasons)
  • On feasts: 2nd (for Terce), 3rd (for Sext), and 5th (for None) antiphons from Lauds of the feast in the temporal or sanctoral cycle. If there are no proper antiphons, then the ones from the common of the saint are used.

After the psalms, the antiphon is repeated and followed by the chapter

  • On ferias: as in the psalter (see the different choices for the liturgical seasons)
  • On feasts: as found in the feast or the common.

Then follows the Kyrie, Pater, and collect.  The Collect is taken from

  • On ferias: the preceding Sunday
  • On feasts: the feast in the temporal or sanctoral cycle.  The same collect is usually said at all the hours except for Prime and Compline.

The office concludes with the Benedicamus Domino and verses Fidelium animae and Divinum auxilium.

Vespers

Vespers is very similar to Lauds.  It begins with the Deus in adjutorium. Then follow four antiphons and psalms.

  • On ferias and 3rd class feasts: they are taken from the psalter.
  • On 1st and 2nd class feasts: the antiphons are taken from the feast in the temporal or sanctoral cycle.  Usually they are the same antiphons as those of lauds, in which case the fourth antiphon is omitted. If there are no proper antiphons, then the ones from the common of the saint are used.  The psalms are the festal psalms as found on Sunday, page 203. These are psalms 109, 110, 111, and 112. Some feasts (e.g., of the Blessed Virgin) will have proper psalms as noted in the feast.

Then follows the chapter, brief response, hymn and Benedictus canticle with its antiphon as found in the psalter for ferial days and in the same place as the antiphons for feasts.  (However, on 3rd class feasts, the antiphons and psalms are from the psalter, while the remainder of the office is taken from the common of the saint.)  For your convenience, the Benedictus and Magnificat are printed on a handy card so you can easily find the text.

Then follows the Kyrie and Pater, followed by the Collect. The Collect is taken from

  • On ferias: the preceding Sunday
  • On feasts: the feast in the temporal or sanctoral cycle.  The same collect is usually said at all the hours except for Prime and Compline.

The office concludes with the Benedicamus Domino and verses Fidelium animae and Divinum auxilium.
