Prayer, Clementissime domine Ihesu, continued.



St Augustine asks that his lust may be mortified and that he may be given the gift of chastity.


Burnet Psalter image.  Aberdeen University Library 1998.

integritatis celesti rore benediccionis tue extingue\ in corpore meo totum furorem ardentis libidinis ut\ maneat in me tenor castitatis anime et corporis.\ Mortifica in membris meis carnis stimulos et\ omnes libidinosas coniuncciones. Et da michi veram\ atque perfectam castitatem cum ceteris donis tuis que\ tibi placent in veritate ut casto corpore et mundo\ corde cotidie tibi valeam sacrificium laudis\ offerre. Qui vivis et regnas deus per omnes.

Introduction to the prayer, Omnipotens et misericors deus qui.



A prayer of St Augustine, which he said daily before mass.


Oracio sancti Augusti\ni quam cotidie dicebat ante missam suam.\


Prayer, Omnipotens et misericors deus qui.



A prayer of St Augustine asking God to look favourably upon him as he prepares to celebrate mass, since to fail in his priestly duty would be worse than to stand before the altar in the knowledge of his sins. He asks that God may remedy in him all that is amiss, teaching him the way of salvation rather than pronouncing on him sentence of death.


Omnipotens et misericors deus qui nichil eorum\ que fecisti odisti [respice] super me indignum fa\mulum tuum, N, et me [ne] ad scelerum me\orum immanitatem attendas cum ad sanctum altare tuum\ accede [accedo], quia si delinquencie mee eatum [reatum] attende [attendes]\ putatum observacionis misterium non impleo.\ Grave est enim domine quod ad mensam tuam mun\do corde et innocentibus manibus non accedo, sed gra\vius est si dum peccata metuo eciam sacrificium non reddam\ licet [liceat] igitur pro inobediencia assistere pro indulgencia\ petere pro officio ministrare pro remedio immolare\
