APPENDIX.

Prapers for the Conversion of England.

Ant. Remember not, O Lord, our offences, nor those of our parents : neither take thou vengeance of our sins. Then is said one of the following Psalms, with its versicle and

prayer, according to the day of the week.

Sunday.

From Ps. lxviii. lxx. Save me, O God, for the waters are come in even unto my soul.

I stick fast in the mire of the deep, and there is no sure standing.

Because for thy sake I have borne reproach ; shame hath covered my face

I am become a stranger to my brethren, and an alien to the sons of my mother.

For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.

How great troubles hast thou shewed me, many and griev. ous; and yet hast thou turned again and refreshed me, and hast brought me back from the depths of the earth.

Thou hast multiplied towards me thy magnificence ; and hast turned again and comforted me.

I will praise the name of God with a canticle ; and I will magnify him with praise.

For God will save Sion, and the cities of Judah shall be built up.

| Composed in Latin for the English College at Rome, in the year 1839, by the Right Rev. Dr. Wiseman.

And they shall dwell there, and acquire it by inheritance.

And the seed of his servants shall possess it : and they that love his name shall dwell therein.

Glory be, &c.

Then is repeated the Ant. Remember not.

Lord have mercy.
Christ have mercy.

Let us pray. () almighty, everlasting God, who hast ordained that men shall be saved by one only true faith ; look graciously upon our beloved country, which a deplorable heresy hath too long held captive under the yoke of error; dispel all darkness of ignorance, drive away all vain opinions of false doctrine, and dispose the minds of all to the reasonable obedience of the true faith, that they may return with joy into the bosom of our holy mother the Church. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Then are said the prayers common to every day, at the end,

Monday.
Ant. Remember not

From Ps. lxxiii. ci. O God, why hast thou cast us off unto the end : why is thy wrath enkindled against the sheep of thy pasture ?

Remember thy congregation, which thou hast possessed from the beginning.

The sceptre of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; Mount Sion, in which thou hast dwelt.

Thou shalt arise and have mercy upon Sion: for it is time that thou have mercy upon her, yea, the time is come.

For thy servants have delighted in her stones, and they shall have compassion on the earth thereof.

And the Gentiles shall fear thy name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.

For the Lord hath built up Sion, and he shall be seen in his glory.

He hath had regard unto the prayer of the humble, and hath not despised their petition.

Let these things be written for another generation, and the people that shall be created shall praise the Lord.

When the people assemble together, and kings that they may serve the Lord.

The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be directed for ever.

Glory be, &c.

thereof; look graciously upon our beloved country, long since torn from that foundation, and mercifully gather together her people, who are wandering like sheep without shepherds; that, the multitude of nations flocking to thy holy temple, our hearts may expand with joy and charity. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt; thou hast cast out the Gentiles, and planted it.

Why hast thou broken down the hedge thereof; so that all they who pass by the way pluck off the grapes ?

Turn again, O God of hosts ; look down from heaven, and see, and visit this vine.

And perfect the same, which thy right hand hath planted.

And we depart not from thee, and we will call upon thy name.

Let us pray. O most merciful and gracious God, who, having given to St. Peter the keys of the kingdom of heaven, hast made his Chair the centre of unity and communion, so that whosoever is not within this ark must of necessity suffer shipwreck; look graciously upon our beloved country, in great part separated from this fellowship with the Apostolic See ; and grant that, every artifice of the enemy being brought to nought, she may at length, under the guidance of the supreme Pastor whom thou hast mercifully provided for thy flock, find the food of life and the hope of eternal happiness. Who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.

Then are said the prayers at the end.

Wednesday.
Ant. Remember not.

From Ps. lxxxiv. Thou hast blessed thy land, O Lord; thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.

Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people ; thou hast covered all their sins.

Thou hast softened all thine anger ; thou hast turned away from thy wrathful indignation.

Convert thou us, o God our Saviour; and turn away thine anger from us.

Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? or wilt thou stretch out thy wrath from generation to generation ?
