*Our Father Saint Bruno*

Monk

Solemnity

At First Vespers

I will bring them to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of
prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my
altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.
(Isaiah 56:7)

Lord God, you chose Saint Bruno to give mankind an example of how the one
thing necessary must be sought. Grant that by following in his footsteps, we
may faithfully bear witness both to your divine majesty and to our union
with Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for
ever and ever. Amen.

At Lauds

I will bring them to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of
prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my
altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.
(Isaiah 56:7)

All-powerful, eternal God, you prepare dwelling places in heaven for those
who renounce the world. Through the intercession of our founder, Saint
Bruno, may we faithfully fulfil the vows of our profession, and safely
attain those things you have promised to all who persevere in your
friendship. This we ask through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

At Terce

I will bring them to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of
prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my
altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.
(Isaiah 56:7)

At Sext

He found him in a desert land; he encircled him, he cared for him, he kept
him as the apple of his eye. The Lord alone did lead him. (Deuteronomy
32:10acd,12 a)

Father, you called Saint Bruno to serve you in solitude. In answer to his
prayers help us amid the changes of this world to rest always in you. This
we ask through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

At None

This is God's commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son
Jesus Christ and love one another. And by this we know that he abides in
us, by the Spirit which he has given us. (I John 3:23a,24b)

Father, in Saint Bruno you showed us the way we must follow to reach the
fullness of our vocation. May we follow Christ on the path of obedience even
as we promised to the Holy Spirit. This we ask through our Lord Jesus Christ
your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for
ever and ever. Amen.

At Second Vespers

I will bring them to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of
prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my
altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.
(Isaiah 56:7)

All-powerful, eternal God, you prepare dwelling places in heaven for those
who renounce the world. Through the intercession of our founder, Saint
Bruno, may we faithfully fulfil the vows of our profession, and safely
attain those things you have promised to all who persevere in your
friendship. This we ask through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
