I AM the +resurrection and the life, saith the Lord : He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live : and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.

St John 11.25,26


Psalm 90. Domine, refugium.

LORD, thou hast been our refuge, : from one generation to another.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever the earth and the world were made, : thou art God from everlasting, and world without end.
3 Thou turnest man to destruction; : again thou sayest, Come again, ye children of men.
4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, : and as a watch in the night.
5 As soon as thou scatterest them they are even as a sleep; : and fade away suddenly like the grass.
6 In the morning it is green, and groweth up; : but in the evening it is cut down, dried up, and withered.
7 For we consume away in thy displeasure, : and are afraid at thy wrathful indignation.
8 Thou hast set our misdeeds before thee; : and our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
9 For when thou art angry all our days are gone: : we bring our years to an end, as it were a tale that is told.
10 The days of our age are threescore years and ten; and though men be so strong that they come to fourscore years, : yet is their strength then but labour and sorrow; so soon passeth it away, and we are gone.
11 But who regardeth the power of thy wrath? : or feareth aright thy indignation?
12 So teach us to number our days, : that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
13 Turn thee again, O LORD, at the last, : and be gracious unto thy servants.
14 O satisfy us with thy mercy, and that soon: : so shall we rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.
15 Comfort us again now after the time that thou hast plagued us; : and for the years wherein we have suffered adversity.
16 Show thy servants thy work, : and their children thy glory.
17 And the glorious majesty of the LORD our God be upon us: : prosper thou the work of our hands upon us; O prosper thou our handy-work.


With the souls of the righteous dead, + give rest  O Savior, to the soul of thy servant James Richard, preserving him unto the life of blessedness which is with thee, O thou who lovest mankind.

In the place of thy rest, where all thy saints repose,+ give rest also to the soul of his belovédMary Katherine, for thou alone lovest mankind.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost.

Thou art the God who didst descend into hell and loose the bonds of the captives. Do thou give rest also to the soul of thy servant James Richard.

Both now and ever and unto ages of ages, Amen.

O Virgin, alone pure and undefiled, who without seed didst bring forth God, pray thou that his soul may be saved.

With the saints + give rest, O Christ, to the soul of thy servant James Richard where there is neither sickness, nor sorrow, nor sighing, but life everlasting.

Studium divinitatis
in laudibus excelsis osculum pacis
Ursule virgini cum turba sua
in omnibus populis dedit.

Unde quocumque venientes perrexerunt,
velut cum gudio celestis paradisi
suscepte sunt,
quia in religione morum honorifice

De patria etiam earum et de aliis regionibus
viri religiosi et sapientes ipsis adiuncti sunt,
que eas in virginea custodia servabant,
et qui eis in omnibus ministrabant.

Deus enim in prima muliere presignavit,
ut mulier a viri custodia nutriretur.


Aer enim volat
et cum omnibus creaturis officia sua exercet,
et firmamentum eum sustinet,
ac aer in viribus istius pascitur.

Et ideo puelle iste
per summum virum sustentabantur,
vexillate in regali prole virginee nature

Deus enim rorem in illas misit,
de quo multiplex fama crevit,
ita quod omnes populi exhac honorabili fama
velut cibum gustabant.

Se diabolus in invidia
sua instud irrisit,
qua nullum opus Dei
intactum dimisit.
