Prayers said each day at the end of visits to the Blessed Sacrament

in the Chapel of the Scots College Rome.

 

 

All of the priests ordained in Rome by Luigi Cardinal Traglia also studied under the benign surveillance of the Rector of the College, William R. Clapperton (       ).  He led the students in the following prayers, without fail, each day for fifty years.   Those of us who still survive are happy to commend him to our two national saints:

       

Prayer after Lunch.

(Invoking Saint Andrew)

 

Cum pervenisset Beatus Andreas

ad locum ubi crux parata erat,

exclamavit et dixit:

O bona crux, diu desiderata,

et jam concupiscenti animo praeparata:

securus et gaudens venio ad te,

ita et tu exultans suscipias me

discipulum ejus qui pependit in te.

 

V. Annuntiaverunt opera Dei.

R. Et facta ejus intellexerunt.

 +

Oremus.

 +

Majestatem tuam, Domine,

suppliciter exoramus:

ut sicut Ecclesiae tuae

Beatus Andreas Apostolus

exstitit praedicator et rector;

ita apud te sit pro nobis

perpetuus intercessor.

Per Christum Dominum nostrum.   Amen

 

Prayer after Supper

(Invoking St Margaret of Scotland)

Manum suam aperuit inopi,

et palmas suas extendit ad pauperem,

et panem otiosa non comedit.

 

V. Diffusa est gratia in labiis tuis.

R.Propterea benedixit te Deus in aeternum.

 +

Oremus:

 

Deus, qui beatam Margaritam Reginam

eximia in  paupers caritate mirabilem efficisti:

da; ut ejus intercessione et exempla,

tua in codibus nostris caritas jugiter augeatur.

Per Christum Dominum nostrum.   Amen
