Sunday - Compline

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

God, come to my assistance
Lord, make haste to help me

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.

Examination of the sins committed this day

Act of Contrition

Oh my God,
I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee,
and I detest all my sins,
because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of Hell,
but most of all because they offend Thee, my God,
Who art all good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace
to confess all my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life.
Amen.

Psalm 111

Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord:
he shall delight exceedingly in his commandments.

His seed shall be mighty upon Earth;
the generation of the righteous shall be blessed.

Glory and wealth shall be in his house:
and his justice remaineth for ever and ever.

To the righteous a light is risen up in darkness:
he is merciful, and compassionate and just.

Acceptable is the man that sheweth mercy and lendeth:
he shall order his words with judgement:
because he shall not be moved for ever.

The just shall be in everlasting remembrance:
he shall not fear the evil hearing.

His heart is ready to hope in the Lord:
his heart is strengthened,
he shall not be moved until he look over his enemies.

He hath distributed, he hath given to the poor:
his justice remaineth for ever and ever:
his horn shall be exalted in glory.

The wicked shall see, and shall be angry,
he shall gnash with his teeth and pine away:
the desire of the wicked shall perish.

John 20:24-28

Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus,
was not with them when Jesus came.

The other disciples therefore said to him:
We have seen the Lord. 

But he said to them:
Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails,
and put my finger into the place of the nails,
and put my hand into his side,
I will not believe.

And after eight days again his disciples were within,
and Thomas was with them. 
Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, 
and stood in the midst, and said:
Peace be to you.

Then he said to Thomas:
Put in thy hand finger hither, and see my hands;
and bring hither thy hand,
and put it into my side;
and be not faithless, but believe.

Thomas answered and said to him:
My Lord, and my God.

Gospel Canticle

Now thou dost dismiss thy servant,
O Lord, according to thy word in peace.

Because my eyes have seen thy salvation,
which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples:

A light to the revelation of the Gentiles,
and the glory of thy people Israel.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.

Dismissal

May the all powerful Lord grant us a restful night and a peaceful death.
Amen.
