Through our Lord Jesus Chrift, &c. to signify that he is our only mediator of redemption, and principal mediator of interceflion, and that we cannot merit any thing by our prayers, unless we make them in his name.

The noclurn or night-office, are so called, because they were wont to be (and in catholic countries still are) said nocturno tempore, in the night-time, according to that of the prophet, at midnight I rose to confess to thee.

The fifteen gradual psalms, take their denomination from a custom the Jews observed of singing them, as they ascended 15 steps or degrees (in latin gradus) towards Solomon's temple, singing one psalm on every step : And this was a figure of the afcenfion of the elect, by the degrees of virtue, whereof the prophet speaks, They shall go from virtue to virtue.

The penitential psalms are so called, because they contain many deep expreflions of inward sorrow and repentance of fins committed, and many cries or fupplications to God for inercy and forgiveness, and therefore are to be fáid kneeling.
