Pater and Ave     (Latin) On a Thursday, the prayers for None begin with the Pater Noster (Our Father), followed by the Ave Maria (Hail Mary).Deus in adiutorium     (Latin) On Thursdays, after the Ave Maria the Divine Office for None continues with a short response based on Psalms 70:1 (Vulgate 69:1):

Res in Beati immaculati : Principium verborum tuorum veritas : in eternum omnia iudicia iustitiæ tuæ     (Latin) On Thursdays, after Psalms 70:1 the Divine Office continues with the hymn Rerum Deus Tenax Vigor. Following this Father Conmee recites Psalms 119:129-176 (Vulgate 118). Psalm 119, the longest in the Bible, is an acrostic poem; it is divided into twenty-two stanzas, one for each of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet; each verse in a given stanza begins with that stanza's letter. In the Vulgate Latin translation, the opening words of the psalm are Beati immaculati (Blessed are the undefiled). The recitation of this psalm in the Divine Office for None begins with the seventeenth stanza, Pe. Father Conmee has reached the final verse (160) of the twentieth stanza, Resh (Res in Latin), which is quoted above: Principium ... tuæ (Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever).Sin : Principes persecuti sunt me gratis : et a verbis tuis formidavit cor meum     (Latin) Sin: Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.. Father Conmee resumes where he left off by reading Psalms 119:161 (Vulgate 118), the opening verse of the twenty-first stanza, which is named for the Hebrew letter Shin (Sin in Latin).
