Reading for Mondays throughout the year

Now that Eastertide and Pentecost are over, the Benedictine Office  has one short reading on ordinary days of the week, which is the same each day.

Benedictine Office short readings

Accordingly, I thought I would provide those to you, with their short responsories, for reference purposes, since Divinum Officium does not actually provide them.

For Monday, the reading comes from Lamentations 2:19:
Consurge, lauda in nocte, in principio vigiliarum; effunde sicut aquam cor tuum ante conspectum Domini: leva ad eum manus tuas 
Arise, give praise in the night, in the beginning of the watches: pour out thy heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands to him
The responsory is:



R: Benedicam Dominum * in omni tempore
V: Benedicam Dominum * in omni tempore
R: Semper laus ejus in ore meo
V: In omni tempore
R: Gloria patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto
V: Benedicam Dominum * in omni tempore
R: I will bless the Lord * at all times
V: I will bless the Lord * at all times
R: His praise shall be always in my mouth.
V: At all times
R Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost
R: I will bless the Lord * at all times
