I will eternally sing the mercies of the Lord
From a letter to his mother by Saint Aloysius Gonzaga
(Acta Sanctorum, Iunii 5, 878)


I ask for you, illustrious lady, that you enjoy always the grace and consolation of the Holy Spirit. With the arrival of your letter I still find myself in the region of the dead. Yet, on one day or another the moment will come to fly to heaven, to praise the eternal God in the land of those who live. I do not have much time before this journey will be realized from now. If charity consists, like Saint Paul says, in rejoicing with those who rejoice and crying with those who cry, then your joy must be immense, illustrious mother, upon thinking that God calls me to true joy, which I will soon possess with the security of never loosing it again.

I will confess to you, illustrious lady, that upon submerging my thought in the consideration of divine goodness, which is like a sea without bottom or limits, I do not feel worthy of its immensity, since it, in exchange for such a brief and exiguous work, invites me to eternal rest and calls me from heaven to supreme happiness, which I have sought with such negligence, and it promises me the reward of a few tears, which I have shed so meagerly.

Consider it again and again, illustrious lady, and beware of belittling this infinite kindness of God, which is what you would do if you wept as dead to the one who lives in the presence of God and who with his intercession can help you in your affairs much more than when he lived in this world. This separation will not be very long; we will meet again in heaven, and together, united with our Savior, we will praise Him with all the strength of our spirit and we will sing for ever His mercies, enjoying an endless happiness. When one dies, He takes away what He had lent us, with the sole purpose of keeping one in a more secure and immune place, and to enrich us with goods that surpass our desires.

I say all this solely to express my desire that you, illustrious lady, together with all the other members of my family, consider my departure from this world as a reason for joy, and so that I do not lack your maternal blessing at the moment when it is time to cross this sea to the shore upon which I have placed all my hopes. I write to you in this manner, because I am conveinced that this is the best way in which to demonstrate the love and respect that I owe you as your son.


Prayer

Our God, fount and origin of all celestial gifts, You who united in Saint Aloysius Gonzaga an admirable purity of life with the practice of penitence, grant us, through his merits and intercession, that those who have not been able to imitate him in the innocense of his life are able to imitate him in his spirit of penitence. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit and is God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Vocation of Saint Aloysius Gonzaga by Guercino (1591-1666); circa 1650; commons.wikimedia.org
 
 
"Man is born for action; he ought to do something. Work, at each step, awakens a sleeping force and roots out error. Who does nothing, knows nothing. Rise! to work! If thy knowledge is real, employ it; wrestle with nature; test the strength of thy theories; see if they will support the trial; act!"


"It is better to be a child of God than king of the whole world."

OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who Art In Heaven
Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Liberate us from all temptation[*]
And deliver us from all evil. Amen



[*] Liberate us is in keeping with the original Latin text.
       God usually does not "lead us" to temptation
       (unless we are tested),
       but gives us the grace to overcome and/or resist it

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
And blessed is the fruit
Of thy womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, Mary of God
Pray for us sinners
Now, and in the hour
Of our death. Amen

APOSTLE'S CREED
I believe in God, the Father Almighty
Creator of Heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the
[work and grace of the] Holy Ghost,[*]
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into the Dead.[**]
On the third day, He rose again;
He ascended into Heaven,
And sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost,[*]
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting. Amen

[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.
[**] the Dead: "inferi", the underworld or the dead in Latin.

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all her iniquities.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.

Let us pray:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all

to the souls of Thy servants the remission
of their sins, so that by our prayers
they may obtain pardon for which they long.
O Lord, who lives and reigns,
world without end. Amen

May they rest in peace. Amen

PADRE NUESTRO

Padre Nuestro,
que estas en los Cielos
Santificado sea Tu Nombre;
Venga a nosotros tu Reino;
Hágase Tu Voluntad
en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día;
Perdona nuestras ofensas,
Como también nosotros
perdonamos a los que nos ofenden,
No nos dejes caer en la tentación,
y líbranos del mal. Amén

De tu vientre, Jesús.

pecadores,
Ahora y en la hora
De nuestra muerte.

CREDO
Creo en Dios, Padre Todopoderoso,
Creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo,
Su único Hijo, Nuestro Señor,
Que fue concebido por obra
y gracia del Espíritu Santo,
Nació de la Santa María Virgen;
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato,
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado,
Descendió a los infiernos,
Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos,
Subió a los cielos
Y está sentado a la derecha de Dios,
Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar
a los vivos y a los muertos.

Creo en el Espíritu Santo,
La Santa Iglesia Católica,
La comunión de los santos,
El perdón de los pecados,
La resurrección de la carne
Y la vida eterna. Amén
 
 
CERRAR
DE PROFUNDIS

Desde lo hondo a Ti grito, Señor; Señor,
escucha mi voz;
Estén Tus oidos atentos
a la voz de mi súplica.

Si llevas cuenta de los delitos, Señor,
¿quién podrá resistir?
Pero de ti procede el perdón,
y así infundes respeto.
Mi alma espera en el Señor.

Espera en su palabra;
mi alma aguarda al Señor,
más que el centinela la aurora.
Aguarda Israel al Señor.

Como el centinela la aurora;
porque del Señor viene la misericordia.
la redención copiosa;
y Él redimirá a Israel de todos sus delitos.

Gloria al Padre, al Hijo y al
Espíritu Santo,
como es desde el principio,
es ahora y será por los siglos de los siglos.
Amén
