Dom Gueranger: brief extracts from Vespers for the Fourth Sunday of Lent.

Brethren: it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bond-woman, and the other by a free-woman. But he who was of the bond-woman was born according to the flesh: but he of the free-woman, was by promise: which things are said by an allegory.

Magnificat Antiphon:
Jesus therefore went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.

Let us pray.
Grant we beseech thee, O almighty God, that we, who are justly afflicted according to our demerits, may be relieved by thy comforting grace.
through, &c.
