Translation of St Edmund, Bishop and Confessor
(Portsmouth and Brentwood)
Gaudeamus omnes in Domine Diem festum celebrantes sub honore beati Edmundi: de cujus solemnitate gaudent Angeli, et collaudant Filium Dei. * Exsultate justi in Domino: rectos decet collaudatio.
Let us all rejoice in the Lord, whilst celebrating this festival in honour of blessed Edmund, on whose solemnity the angels rejoice, and praise the Son of God. * Rejoice in the Lord, O ye just: praise becometh the upright.
(Introit of Mass, Psalm 32)
Deus, qui nos concedis beati Edmundi, Confessoris tui atque Pontificis translationem colere: da nobis ejus meritis et precibus; ut a peccati servitute soluti, ad regni coelestis gaudia transire valeamus.
O God, by whose grace we celebrate the translation of blessed Edmund, they confessor and bishop, grant us by his merits and prayers that we may be freed from the slavery of sin, and be able to pass to thejoys of the heavenly kingdom.
