25th October, SS. Chrysanthus and Daria, Martyrs
Intret in conspectu tuo, Domine, gemitus compeditorum: redde vicinis nostris septuplum in sinu eorum: vindica sanguinem sanctorum tuorum, qui effusus est. * Deus, venerunt gentes in haereditatem tuam: polluerunt templum sanctum tuum: posuerunt Jerusalem in pomorum custodiam.
Let the sighing of the prisoners come in before Thee, O Lord; render to our neighbours sevenfold in their bosom; revenge the blood of Thy saints, which hath been shed. * O God, the heathens are come into Thy inheritance: they have defiled Thy holy temple: they have made Jerusalem as a place to keep fruit.
(Psalm 78:11-12,1 from the Introit of Mass)
Beatórum Mártyrum tuórum, Dómine, Chrysánthi et Daríae, quaesumus, adsit nobis orátio: ut, quos venerámur obséquio, eórum pium júgiter experiámur auxílium.
We beseech Thee, O Lord, may the prayers of Thy blessed martyrs Chrysanthus and Daria be our stay: and may we who seek to do them devout honour, at all times feel their kindly help.
