17th August, Octave Day of St Lawrence

 The Octave Day of St. Laurence

Probasti, Domine, cor meum et visitasti nocte: igne me examinasti, et non est inventa in me iniquitas. * Exaudi, Domine, justitiam meam: intende deprecationem meam.
Thou hast proved my heart, O Lord, and visited it by night: Thou hast tried me by fire, and iniquity hath not been found in me. * Hear, O Lord, my justice: attend to my supplication.
(Psalm 16:3,1 from the introit of Mass)

Excita, Domine, in Ecclesia tua Spiritum, cui beatus Laurentius Levita servivit: ut, eodem nos repleti, studeamus amare quod amavit, et opere exercere quod docuit. 
Stir up within Thy Church, O Lord, the Spirit which blessed Laurence Thy deacon obeyed: that therewith we too may be filled and may strive to love what he loved and may put in practice what he taught.
