Procession in Times of Tribulation

From the Roman Ritual, 1964

All: Ant. Rise up, O Lord, and help us, * and deliver us for your
name's sake.

P: We have heard, O God, with our own ears * the things which our
fathers told us.

All: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy
Spirit.

P: As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, * world
without end. Amen.

All: Ant.: Rise up, O Lord, and help us, * and deliver us for
your name's sake.

P: Lord, have mercy on us.
All: Lord, have mercy on us.
P: Christ, have mercy on us.
All: Christ, have mercy on us.
P: Lord, have mercy on us.
All: Lord, have mercy on us.

P: Holy Mary, Mother of God.
All: Pray for us.
P: Saint Michael,
All: (etc.)
Holy angels of God,
Saint Joseph,
Saint John the Baptist,
Saint Peter and Saint Paul,
Saint Andrew,
Saint John,
Saint Mary Magdalene,
Saint Stephen,
Saint Ignatius,
Saint Lawrence,
Saint Perpetua and Saint Felicity,
Saint Agnes,
Saint Gregory,
Saint Augustine,
Saint Athanasius,
Saint Basil,
Saint Martin,
Saint Benedict,
Saint Francis and Saint Dominic,
Saint Francis Xavier,
Saint John Vianney,
Saint Catherine,
Saint Theresa,
All you saints of God,

P: Lord, be merciful,
All: Lord, save us.
P: From all harm,
All: (etc)
From every sin,
From all temptations,
From everlasting death,
By Your coming among us,
By Your death and rising to new life,
By Your gift of the Holy Spirit,

P: Be merciful to us sinners,
All: Lord, hear our prayer.
P: Guide and protect Your Holy Church,
All: (etc)
Keep our Pope and all the clergy in faithful service to Your Church.
Bring all people together in trust and peace.
Strengthen us in Your service.

Amen.

P: Our Father (the rest inaudibly until:)
P: And lead us not into temptation.
All: But deliver us from evil.

Then psalm 19 is said; or in place of it psalm 90.

May the Lord hear thee in the day of tribulation: may the name of the God of Jacob protect thee. May he send thee help from the sanctuary: and defend thee out of Sion. May he be mindful of all thy sacrifices: and may thy whole burnt offering be made fat. May he give thee according to thy own heart; and confirm all thy counsels.

We will rejoice in thy salvation; and in the name of our God we shall be exalted. The Lord fulfill all thy petitions: now have I known that the Lord hath saved his anointed. He will hear him from his holy heaven: the salvation of his right hand is in powers. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will call upon the name of the Lord our God. They are bound, and have fallen; but we are risen, and are set upright. O Lord, save the king: and hear us in the day that we shall call upon thee.

P: God is our refuge and our strength.
All: A helper in all tribulations.
P: Lord, save your servants.
All: Who trust in you, my God.
P: O holy God! O holy strong One! O holy immortal One!
All: Have mercy on us.
P: Help us, O God, our Savior.
All: And deliver us, O Lord, for the glory of your name.
P: Lord, heed my prayer.
All: And let my cry be heard by you.
P: The Lord be with you.
All: May He also be with you.

Let us pray.
Almighty God, do not disdain your people who cry to you in their affliction, but for the glory of your name be pleased to help us who are so sorely troubled. Show us, O Lord, your inexpressible mercy, blot out our transgressions, and graciously deliver us from the condemnation they deserve.

We entreat you, Lord God, grant us, your servants, the enjoyment of lasting health of body and mind; and by the glorious intercession of blessed Mary, ever a Virgin, free us from present sorrow and give us everlasting joy.

Graciously hear us, O Lord, in our tribulation, and turn away the stripes of your wrath which we justly deserve. God, our refuge and our strength and source of all goodness, heed the holy prayers of your Church, and grant that we fully obtain whatever we ask for in faith; through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.
