Septuagesima Sunday 2018

The Lord said to Adam: * Of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, thou shalt not eat; in the hour that thou shall eat thereof, thou shalt surely die. (The antiphon of the Magnificat at Vespers of the Saturday before Septuagesima.)

The prayer: Mercifully hear the prayers of thy people, O Lord, we beseech Thee; that we, who are justly afflicted for our sins, may be mercifully delivered for the glory of Thy Name.

Aña: Dixit Dóminus ad Adam: De ligno quod est in medio paradísi, ne cómedas: in qua hora coméderis, morte moriéris.
Oratio: Preces pópuli tui, quáesumus, Dómine, clementer exaudi: ut, qui juste pro peccátis nostris afflígimur, pro tui nóminis gloria misericórditer liberémur.
