Traditional Benedictine usage/per-Conciliar version.Monastic 1962/63.//Before the Office is begun, it is commendable to say the following Prayer, the singular number being used throughout; for which Pope Pius XI granted an indulgence of 3 years (S. Ap., November 17, 1933). Prayer; OPEN my mouth, O Lord, to bless thy holy name: cleanse also my heart from all vain, evil and distracting thoughts; enlighten my understanding, inflame my will, that I may worthily recite this Office with attention and devotion, and deserve to be heard in the presence of thy divine Majesty. Through Christ our Lord. R. Amen. O Lord, in union with that divine intention with which thou didst praise God on earth, I offer to thee this Hour. - - - - (St. Benedict did not include Nunc dimittis in his Compline and it was the Roman Rite Breviary that completed the trio of canticles by adding Nunc dimittis to Compline) monastic TRADITIONAL compline PRE 1974 the Breviarium Monasticum All rights reserved
