Chapter 35:
On the Weekly Servers in the Kitchen (Cont.)

An hour before the meal
let the weekly servers each receive a drink and some bread
over and above the appointed allowance,
in order that at the meal time they may serve their brethren
without murmuring and without excessive fatigue.
On solemn days, however, let them wait until after Mass.

Immediately after the Morning Office on Sunday,
the incoming and outgoing servers
shall prostrate themselves before all the brethren in the oratory
and ask their prayers. 


Let the server who is ending his week say this verse:
“Blessed are You, O Lord God,
who have helped me and consoled me.”
When this has been said three times
and the outgoing server has received his blessing,
then let the incoming server follow and say,
“Incline unto my aid, O God;
O Lord, make haste to help me.”
Let this also be repeated three times by all,
and having received his blessing
let him enter his service.
