Twenty-third Sunday after Trinity

(Prayer requests?)

Incipit lamentatio Ieremiae prophetae. | Here begins the lamentation of Jeremiah the prophet.

ALEPH. Quomodo sedet sola civitas plena populo! Facta est quasi vidua domina gentium; princeps provinciarum facta est sub tributo. | A. How lonely sits the city that was full of people! How like a widow has she become, she that was great among the nations! She that was a princess among the cities has become a vassal.

BETH. Plorans ploravit in nocte, et lacrimæ ejus in maxillis ejus: non est qui consoletur eam, ex omnibus caris ejus; omnes amici ejus spreverunt eam, et facti sunt ei inimici. | B. She weeps bitterly in the night, tears on her cheeks; among all her lovers she has none to comfort her; all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they have become her enemies.

Ierusalem, convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum. | Jerusalem, turn again to the Lord your God.

(Book of Lamentations 1:1-2)
