The Lord saith: I think thoughts of peace, and not of affliction: you shall call upon Me, and I will hear you; and I will bring back your captivity from all places.  (Psalm) Lord, Though hast blessed Thy land: Thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.  Glory be to the Father.  The Lord saith…

 

Collect

 

Stir up, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the wills of Thy faithful to seek more earnestly this fruit of the divine work, that they may receive more abundantly healing gifts from Thy tender mercy.  Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – Colossians 1:9-14

 

Brethren: We cease not to pray for you, and to beg that you may be filled with the knowledge of the will of God, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding: that you may walk worthy of God, in all things pleasing; being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;  strengthened with all might according to the power of His glory, in all patience and long suffering with joy; giving thanks to God the Father, Who hath made us worthy to be partakers of the lot of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the remission of sins.

Gospel – Matthew 24:15-35

 

At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: When you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, standing in the holy place; he that readeth, let him understand:

 

Then they that are in Judea, let them flee to the mountains; and he that is on the housetop, let him not come down to take any thing out of his house; and he that is in the field, let him not go back to take his coat. And woe to them that are with child and that give suck, in those days. But pray that your flight be not in the winter, or on the sabbath:

 

For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been found from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be: and unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved; but for the sake of the elect, those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say to you: Lo, here is Christ, or there; do not believe him; for there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. Behold I have told it to you, beforehand.

 

If therefore they shall say to you: Behold He is in the desert, go ye not out; Behold He is in the closets, believe it not. For as lightning cometh out of the east, and appeareth even into the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Wheresoever the body shall be, there shall the eagles also be gathered together. And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be moved; and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then shall all tribes of the earth mourn; and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with much power and majesty.

 

And He shall send His angels with a trumpet and a great voice, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest parts of the heavens to the utmost bounds of them. And from the fig tree learn a parable: when the branch thereof is now tender, and the leaves come forth, you know that summer is nigh. So you also, when you shall see all these things, know ye that it is nigh even at the doors. Amen I say to you that this generation shall not pass till all these things be done. Heaven and earth shall pass, but My words shall not pass.

 

Offertory

 

Out of the depths have I cried to Thee, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice.  Out of the depths have I cried to Thee, O Lord.

 

Secret

 

Be gracious, O Lord, to our humble entreaties: receive the offerings and prayers of Thy people, and turn to Thyself the hearts of us all; and thus freed from earthly covetings, may we be caught by heavenly desires.  Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

Amen I say to you, whatsoever you ask when you pray, believe that you shall receive and it shall be done to you.

 

Post Communion

 

Grant unto us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that through these Sacraments which we have received, whatsoever is in our minds corrupt, may be cured by the gift of their power to heal.  Through our Lord.

Introit

 

The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom and his tongue shall speak judgement: the law of his God is in his heart.  (Psalm) Be not emulous of evildoers: nor envy them that work iniquity.  Glory be to the Father.  The mouth of the just…

 

Collect

 

O most merciful God, Who didst vouchsafe to call the holy Abbot Sylvester from pondering the vanity of worldly things before an open grave, into the wilderness to make his life illustrious by his merits: we humbly beseech Thee, that like him we may despise earthly things, and enjoy fellowship with Thee for evermore.  Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – Ecclesiasticus 45:1-6

 

Beloved of God and men: whose memory is in benediction. He made him like the Saints in glory, and magnified him in the fear of his enemies, and with his words he made prodigies to cease. He glorified him in the sight of kings, and gave him commandments in the sight of his people, and showed him His glory. He sanctified him in his faith and meekness, and chose him out of all flesh. For He heard him and his voice, and brought him into a cloud.  And He gave him commandments before His face, and a law of life and instruction.

 

Gradual

 

Lord, Thou hast prevented him with blessings of sweetness: Thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones.  He asked life of Thee, and Thou hast given him length of days for ever and ever.

 

Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  The just shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow up like the cedar of Libanus.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – Matthew 19:27-29

And Jesus said to them: Amen I say to you, that you, who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit on the seat of His majesty, you also shall sit on twelve seats, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold and shall possess life everlasting.

 

Offertory

 

Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, O Lord, and hast not withholden from him the will of his lips: Thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones.

 

Secret

 

May the holy Abbot Sylvester, we beseech Thee, O Lord, obtain by his prayers that the Sacrifice laid on Thy holy altar may profit us unto salvation. Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

The faithful and wise servant, whom his lord setteth over his family, to give them their measure of wheat in due season.

 

Post Communion

 

May the pleading of blessed Sylvester the Abbot for us, as well as the reception of Thy Sacrament, protect us, O Lord, that we may both share in the glory of his works, and receive the help of his intercession.  Through our Lord.

Introit

 

Adore God, all you His Angels: Sion heard, and was glad: and the daughters of Juda rejoiced. (Psalm) The Lord hath reigned, let the earth rejoice: let many islands be glad. Glory be to the Father. Adore God, all you His Angels…

 

Collect

 

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that thinking everything over in our minds, we may accomplish, both in words and works, that which is pleasing in Thy sight. Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – I Thessalonians 1:2-10

 

Brethren: we give thanks to God always for you all, making a remembrance of you in our prayers without ceasing, being mindful of the work of your faith and labor and charity, and of the enduring of the hope of our Lord Jesus Christ before God and our Father: knowing, brethren beloved of God, your election: for our Gospel hath not been unto you in word only, but in power also, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much fullness, as you know what manner of men we have been among you for your sakes.

 

And you became followers of us and of the Lord, receiving the word in much tribulation, with joy of the Holy Ghost: so that you were made a pattern to all that believe in Macedonia and in Achaia. For from you was spread abroad the word of the Lord, not only in Macedonia and in Achaia, but also in every place, your faith which is towards God, is gone forth, so that we need not to speak any thing. For they themselves relate of us what manner of entering in we had unto you; and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven (Whom He raised up from the dead), Jesus, Who hath delivered us from the wrath to come.

 

Gradual

 

The Gentiles shall fear Thy name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth Thy glory. For the Lord hath built up Sion; and He shall be seen in His glory.

Gospel – Matthew 13:31-35

 

At that time Jesus spoke to the multitudes this parable: The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field: which is the least indeed of all seeds: but when it is grown up, it is greater than all herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and dwell in the branches thereof. Another parable He spoke to them: The kingdom of heaven is like to leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, until the whole was leavened. All these things Jesus spoke in parables to the multitudes: and without parables He did not speak to them: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophet, saying: I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world.

 

Offertory

 

The right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength: the right hand of the Lord hath exalted me: I shall not die, but live, and shall declare the works of the Lord.

Nov 15 – Saint Albert the Great, Bishop, Confessor, Doctor (W), Propers of the Mass – 1962 Missal

 

Introit

 

In the midst of the Church he opened his mouth: and the Lord filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding: He clothed him with a robe of glory.  (Psalm) It is good to give praise to the Lord: and to sing to Thy name, O Most High.  Glory be to the Father.  In the midst…

 

Collect

 

O God, Who didst make blessed Albert, Thy Bishop and Doctor, great by his bringing human wisdom into captivity to divine faith: grant us, we beseech Thee, so to follow the guidance of his teaching that we may enjoy perfect light in heaven.  Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – II Timothy 4:1-8

 

Dearly beloved, I charge thee, before God and Jesus Christ, Who shall judge the living and the dead, by His coming and His kingdom: preach the word: be instant in season, out of season: reprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine. For there shall be a time when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears, and will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables. But be thou vigilant, labor in all things, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill thy ministry. Be sober.

 

For I am even now ready to be sacrificed, and the time of my dissolution is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. As to the rest, there is laid up for me a crown of justice, which the Lord, the just Judge, will render to me in that day: and not only to me, but to them also that love His coming.

 

Gradual

 

The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom, and his tongue shall speak judgement: the law of his God is in his heart: and his steps shall not be supplanted.

 

Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  The Lord loved him and adorned him: He clothed him with a robe of glory.  

 

Alleluia.  The just man shall spring as the lily: and shall flourish for ever before the Lord.

 

Gospel – Matthew 5:13-19

 

At that time, Jesus said to His disciples:  You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt lose its savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is good for nothing any more but to be cast out, and to be trodden on by men. You are the light of the world. A city seated on a mountain cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel but upon a candlestick, that it may shine to all that are in the house.

 

So let your light shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father, who is in heaven. Do not think that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For amen I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall not pass of the law, till all be fulfilled. He therefore that shall break one of these least commandments, and shall so teach men, shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but he that shall do and teach, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

 

Offertory

 

The just shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall be multiplied like the cedar that is in Libanus.

 

Secret

 

Graciously regard these our sacrifices, we beseech Thee, O Lord: that what we set forth in this mystery of the Passion of Thy Son our Lord, may, by the intercession and example of blessed Albert, produce in us its devout fruit.  Through the same our Lord.

 

Communion

 

The faithful and wise servant, whom his lord setteth over his family: to give them their measure of wheat in due season.

 

Post Communion

 

We beseech Thee, O Lord, that blessed Albert, Thy Confessor and illustrious Doctor may join his prayers to ours that this Thy sacrifice may bring us salvation.  Through our Lord.

Nov 14 – Saint Josaphat, Bishop, Martyr (R), Propers of the Mass – 1962 Missal

 

Introit

 

Let us all rejoice in the Lord, and make a festive day in honor of the blessed Martyr Josaphat: at whose martyrdom the Angels rejoice, and give praise to the Son of God.  (Psalm) Rejoice in the Lord, ye just, praise becometh the upright.  Glory be to the Father.  Let us all rejoice…

 

Collect

 

Stir up within Thy Church, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the Spirit with which blessed Josaphat, Thy Martyr and Bishop, was filled, when he laid down his life for his sheep: so that, through his intercession, we too may be moved and strengthened by the same Spirit, and may not shrink from giving our lives for the brethren.  Through our Lord… in the united of the same Holy Ghost.

 

Epistle – Hebrews 5:1-6

 

Brethren: Every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God: that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins: who can have compassion on them that are ignorant and that err: because he himself also is compassed with infirmity: and therefore he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. Neither doth any man take the honor to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was. So Christ also did not glorify Himself that He might be made a high priest; but He that said unto Him: Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee.

 

As He saith also in another place: Thou art a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchisedech.

 

Gradual

 

I have found David My servant, with My holy oil I have anointed him; for My hand shall help him,  and Mine arm shall strengthen him.  The enemy shall have no advantage over him, and the son of iniquity shall not hurt him.

 

Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  This is the priest whom the Lord hath crowned.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – John 10:11-16

 

At that time Jesus said to the Pharisees:  I am the good Shepherd. The good shepherd giveth His life for His sheep. But the hireling, and he that is not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth, and scattereth the sheep: and the hireling fleeth, because he is a hireling and he hath no care for the sheep. I am the good Shepherd; and I know Mine, and Mine know Me. As the Father knoweth Me, and I know the Father: and I lay down My life for My sheep.

 

And other sheep I have that are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear My voice, and there shall be one fold and one shepherd. 

 

Offertory

 

Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

 

Secret

 

O most merciful God, pour forth Thy blessings on these our gifts, and strengthen us in that faith which blessed Josaphat, Thy Martyr and Bishop, upheld even to the shedding of his blood.  Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

I am the good Shepherd, and I know My sheep, and Mine know Me.

 

Post Communion

 

May this heavenly banquet impart to us the spirit of fortitude, which strengthened blessed Josaphat, Thy Martyr and Bishop, to do battle for the honor of Thy Church throughout his life down to the hour of his triumph.  Through our Lord.

Collect

 

In Thine unceasing goodness, O Lord, we beseech Thee, keep safe Thy household: and, since their only hope is to lean on Thy heavenly grace, may Thy protection be their steady defense. Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – Colossians 3:12-17

 

Brethren: Put ye on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, the bowels of mercy, benignity, humility, modesty, patience: bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if any have a complaint against another: even as the Lord hath forgiven you, so do you also. But above all these things have charity, which is the bond of perfection: and let the peace of Christ rejoice in your hearts, wherein also you are called in one body: and be ye thankful.

 

Let the word of Christ dwell in you abundantly, in all wisdom: teaching and admonishing one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual canticles, singing in grace in your hearts to God. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God and the Father by Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Gradual

 

The Gentiles shall fear Thy name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth Thy glory. For the Lord hath built up Sion; and He shall be seen in His glory.

Gospel – Matthew 13:24-30

 

At that time Jesus spoke this parable to the multitudes:  The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man that sowed good seed in his field. But while men were asleep, his enemy came and oversowed cockle among the wheat, and went his way.

 

And when the blade was sprung up and had brought forth fruit, then appeared also the cockle. And the servants of the goodman of the house coming, said to him: Sir, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? Whence then hath it cockle? And he said to them: An enemy hath done this. And the servants said to him: Wilt thou that we go and gather it up? And he said: No, lest perhaps, gathering up the cockle, you root up the wheat also together with it. Suffer both to grow until the harvest, and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers: Gather up first the cockle and bind it into bundles to burn, but the wheat gather ye into my barn.

 

Offertory

 

The right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength: the right hand of the Lord hath exalted me: I shall not die, but live, and shall declare the works of the Lord.

 

Secret

 

We offer unto Thee, O Lord, the sacrifice of propitiation: that Thou mayest mercifully absolve us from our sins, and Thyself direct our inconstant hearts. Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

All wondered at these things which proceeded from the mouth of God.

 

Post Communion

 

We beseech Thee, O almighty God, that we may obtain the effect of that salvation, whereof we have received the pledge in these mysteries. Through our Lord.
