.:{In honorem festum SPND}:.

Dominican propers for today's feast! English translation (my own) follow, everywhere except the prayers, which I couldn't get fully translated in time:

Ad Laudes matutinas

Morning Prayer


Dominic, the Lord's own champion
Charged to spread the Gospel flame
Sent to men the Word to publish
And His mysteries proclaim.
With the grace of God within you
Like a hero lord your came!

Stainless as a burnished chalice,
Shining as a fiery brand
Dominic, you came to aid us
And to do your Lord's command
With the grace of God within you
And the Gospel in your hand.

Now again we nee your goodness,
Your our father and our guide!
Keep us from all sin and error
From your blindness and our pride.
With the grace of God within us,
May we stand close by your side!

Ant 1: Sitiebat Christi servus martyrium, sicut sitit cervus ad aquae fluvium.
Ant 1: Christ thirsted for his martyr-servants, as a deer thirsts for rivers of water.

[Psalms and canticle from Sunday, week 1]

Ant 2: Pauper in peculio, dives vita pura, paupertatis pretio caeli tenet iura.
Ant 2: Poor in estate, rich in a pure life, the cost of poverty is the rule of heaven.

Ant 3: Linguae manus studio scalam hanc erexit, quam Virgo cum Filio Mater sursum vexit.

Eph 3,8-9
To me, the least of all the saints, is given this grace, to preach among the Gentiles, the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to enlighten all men, that they may see what is the dispensation of the mystery which hath been hidden from eternity in God, who created all things.

R. Annuntiate inter gentes * Gloriam Domini. Annuntiate.
V. In omnibus populis mirabilia eius. * Gloriam Domini. Gloria Patri... Annuntiate.

R. Annonce to all the nations * the glory of the Lord. Announce.
V. Among all the peoples his marvelous deeds. * the glory of the Lord. Glory be to the Father... Announce.

Ad Benedictus ant: O quam speciosi pedes annuntiatis pacem, praedicantis salutem, dicentis Sion: regnabit Deus tuus.
Benedictus antiphon: How beautiful are the feet of him that preacheth peace, that preacheth salvation, that saith to Sion: Thy God shall reign!


In huius aurorae laetitia Dominum laudemus, qui omnes homines vult salvos fieri ad agnitionem veritatis venire. Ei iubilemus dicentes:
Laus tibi, Domine salutis largitor.
Benedictus esto, Domine, qui famulum tuum Dominicum Ecclesiae tuae ministrum dedisti et multis fratribus ducem:
-praesta ut eius ductu semper laeti proficiamus, et in tua misericordia fidentes.
Oculis omnium corruscabat Dominicus virtutum nitore, caritatis ardore et evangelicae praedicationis zelo:
-tibi, Domine, gratias agimus, qui nos ad eius imitationem vocas.
Ad eius sequelam decursu temporum fratres et sorores congregasti:
-de omnibus tuum amoris mandatum verbo et vita professis te laudamus, Domine.
Hodie, dum tibi placet ut permulti tam laici quam religiosi viri et mulieres Dominicanae Familiae titulo glorientur:
-ex eorum sollertia te cognoscendi et glorificandi Magistrum, honor tibi succrescat in aeternum.

Pater noster, etc.

Deus, qui Ecclesiam tuam beati Dominici confessoris tui, Patris nostri, illuminare dignatus es meritis et doctrinis, concede ut eius intercessione temporalibus non destitatur auxiliis, et spiritualibus semper proficiat incrementis. Per Dominum.

O God, who have deigned to illumine your Church with your confessor Dominic, our father, with his merits and doctrines, grant that through his intercession it not be destituted by temporal cares but aways go forward in spiritual increases. Through Christ our Lord.

[benedictio finalis]
Deus, Pater omnipotens qui benignitatem et humanitatem Salvatoris nostri fecit apparere in famulo suo Dominico, vos quoque conformes faciat imagini Filii sui.
R. Amen.

God, almighty Father who gave us the blessing and humanity of his Savior appearing in your servant Dominic, may he make you too to conform to the image of his Son.
R. Amen.
