Reading 1, Baruch 1:15-22
15 You must say: Saving justice is the Lord's, we have only the look of shame we bear, as is the case today for the people of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
16 for our kings and princes, our priests, our prophets, and for our ancestors,
17 because we have sinned before the Lord,
18 have disobeyed him, and have not listened to the voice of the Lord our God telling us to follow the commandments which the Lord had ordained for us.
19 From the day when the ...

The second is to escort the faithful to heaven at their hour of death.
The third is to be a champion of all Christians, and the Church itself.
And the ...

dilate thy heart;
thy Jesus can give thee every good gift;
He loves thee ardently.
for great favours from this Lord,
Who, through an impulse of love,
comes to thee all love.
Yes, my Jesus, my hope,
I trust in Thy goodness,
that in giving Thyself to me this morning,
Thou wilt kindle in my poor soul
the flames of Thy pure love,
and of an ardent desire to please Thee,
that, from this day forward,
I may wish only what Thou wishest.

O eternal God and Ruler of all creation, You have allowed me to reach this hour. Forgive the sins I have committed this day by word, deed or thought.
