INTROIT (Entrance Antiphon) – ASH WEDNESDAY

Here is an (unprofessional, locally made) audio file of the Ash Wednesday Introit from the Abbey-Campus Ministry liturgy at St. John’s last week.

Misereris omnium, Domine,
et nihil odisti eorum quæ fecisti,
dissimulans peccata hominum
propter pænitentiam,
et parcens illis;
quia tu es Dominus Deus noster.

You are merciful to all, O Lord,
and you hate nothing of what you have made,
you look away from the sins of humankind
for the sake of repentance,
and you spare them;
for you are the Lord our God.

- Wisdom 11:24-25, Psalm 57; Mode I

Here is the introit of I Lent, “Invocavit me.”

Invocabit me, et ego exaudiam eum;
eripiam eum, et glorificabo eum;
longitudine dierum adimplebo eum.

He will call upon me, and I will hear him;
I will rescue him, and glorify him
with length of days I will fill him.

- Psalm 91:15, 16:1, Mode VIII

Here is the communio of I Lent, “Scapulis.”

Scapulis suis obumbrabit tibi, et sub pennis eius sperabis;
scuto circumdabit te veritas eius.

With his wings he will overshadow you, and under his wings you’ll find hope;
like a shield his true faithfulness will surround you.

Psalm 91:4,Mode III
