Sixth Hour on Sunday



The mountain of Sinai shook at your presence, Lord God; and the Virgin Mary carried you, who carry the heights and the depths, she conceived you without marriage and brought you forth in a manner beyond description; magnify, Lord, the memory of your mother.

Glory be to the Father...

Those who are sealed with the seal of Christ, who ate his holy body and drank his propitiatory blood, shall be raised up by him from the earth and shake off the dust and shall be clothed in a garment of glory
