Second Sunday of Advent (V), Propers of the Mass – 1962 Missal

Introit

 

People of Sion, behold the Lord shall come to save the nations: and the Lord shall make the glory of His voice to be heard, in the joy of your heart.  (Psalm) Give ear, O Thou that rulest Israel: Thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep.  Glory be to the Father.  People of Sion…

 

Collect

 

Stir up our hearts, O Lord, to prepare the ways of Thine only-begotten Son: that through His coming we may deserve to serve Thee with purified minds: Who with thee liveth and reigneth.

 

Epistle – Romans 15:4-13

 

Brethren, What things soever were written, were written for our learning: that, through patience and the comfort of the Scriptures, we might have hope. Now the God of patience and of comfort grant you to be of one mind one towards another, according to Jesus Christ:

 

That with one mind and with one mouth you may glorify God and the Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Wherefore receive one another, as Christ also hath received you unto the honor of God. For I say that Christ Jesus was minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: but that the Gentiles are to glorify God for His mercy, as it is written: Therefore will I confess to Thee, O Lord, among the Gentiles, and will sing to Thy name. And again He saith: Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with His people.

 

And again: Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and magnify Him, all ye people. And again, Isaias saith: There shall be a root of Jesse; and He that shall rise up to rule the Gentiles, in Him the Gentiles shall hope. Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing: that you may abound in hope, and in the power of the Holy Ghost.

 

Gradual

 

Out of Sion the loveliness of His beauty: God shall come manifestly.  Gather ye together His Saints to Him, Who have set His covenant before sacrifices.

 

Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  I rejoiced at the things that were said to me: We shall go unto the house of the Lord.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – Matthew 11:2-10

 

At that time, when John had heard in prison the works of Christ, sending two of his disciples, he said to Him: Art Thou He that art to come, or look we for another? And Jesus making answer, said to them: Go and relate to John what you have heard and seen. The blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead rise again, the poor have the gospel preached to them:

 

And blessed is he that shall not be scandalized in Me. And when they went their way, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John: What went you out into the desert to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went you out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Behold they that are clothed in soft garments are in the houses of kings. But what went you out to see? A Prophet? Yea I tell you, and more than a Prophet. For this is he of whom it is written: Behold I send my Angel before Thy face, who shall prepare Thy way before Thee.

 

Offertory

 

Thou wilt turn, O God, and bring us to life, and Thy people shall rejoice in Thee: show us, O Lord, Thy mercy, and grant us Thy salvation.

 

Secret

 

Be appeased, we beseech Thee, O Lord, by the prayers and sacrifices of our humility: and where merits of ours to plead for us are lacking, do Thou by Thine aid assist us.  Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

Arise, O Jerusalem, and stand on high, and behold the joy that cometh to thee from thy God.

 

Post Communion

 

Filled with the food of spiritual nourishment, we humbly entreat Thee, O Lord, that by our partaking of this mystery, Thou wouldst teach us to despise the things of earth, and to love those of heaven.  Through our Lord.

December 8 – Feast of the Immaculate Conception (W), Propers of the Mass – 1962 Missal

Introit

 

I will greatly receive the Lord, and my soul shall be joyful in my God: for He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, and with the robe of justice He hath covered me, as a bride adorned with her jewels.  (Psalm) I will extol Thee, O Lord, for Thou hast upheld me: and hast not made mine enemies to rejoice over me.  Glory be to the Father.  I will…

 

Collect

 

O God, Who, by the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin, didst prepare for Thy Son a worthy habitation, we beseech Thee, that as Thou didst preserve her from every stain by the foreseen death of this Thy Son, so Thou wouldst grant that we also being cleansed from guilt by her intercession, may come to Thee.  Through the same our Lord.

 

Epistle – Proverbs 8:22-35

 

The Lord possessed me in the beginning of His ways, before He made anything, from the beginning. I was set up from eternity, and of old, before the earth was made. The depths were not as yet, and I was already conceived; neither had the fountains of waters as yet sprung out; the mountains with their huge bulk had not as yet been established: before the hills I was brought forth.

 

He had not yet made the earth, nor the rivers, nor the poles of the world. When He prepared the heavens, I was there; when with a certain law and compass He enclosed the depths; when He established the sky above, and poised the fountains of waters; when He compassed the sea with its bounds, and set a law to the waters that they should not pass their limits; when He balanced the foundations of the earth; I was with Him, forming all things, and was delighted every day, playing before Him at all times;

 

Playing in the world: and my delights were to be with the children of men. Now therefore, ye children, hear me: Blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, and that watcheth daily at my gates, and waiteth at the posts of my doors. He that shall find me shall find life, and shall have salvation from the Lord

 

Gradual

 

Blessed art thou, O Virgin Mary, by the Lord the most high God, above all women upon the earth.  Thou art the glory of Jerusalem, thou art the joy of Israel, thou art the honor of our people.

 

Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  Thou art all fair, O Mary, and the original stain was never in thee.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – Luke 1:26-28

 

At that time: the Angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David: and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the Angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

 

Offertory

 

Hail, Mary, full of grace; the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women, alleluia.

 

Secret

 

Receive the saving Victim, which we offer to Thee, O Lord, on the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the blessed Virgin Mary: and grant that, as we confess that by Thy preserving grace she was kept free from every stain; so, by her intercession, we may be delivered from all our faults.  Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

Glorious things are told of thee, O Mary, for He Who is mighty hath done great things to thee.

 

Post Communion

 

May the Sacraments which we have received, O Lord, our God, heal in us the wounds of that sin, from which Thou didst uniquely preserve blessed Mary, conceived immaculate.  Through our Lord.

December 7 – Saint Ambrose, 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 give blessed Ambrose to Thy people as a minister of eternal salvation: grant, we beseech Thee, that we, who have had him for our teacher of earth, may deserve to have him for our advocate 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

 

Behold a great priest, who in his days pleased God.  There was not any found like to him, who kept the law of the Most High.

 

Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  The Lord hath sworn, and He will not repent.  Thou art a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech. Alleluia.

 

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

 

My truth and My mercy shall be with him: and in My name shall his horn be exalted.

 

Secret

 

Almighty and everlasting God, do Thou, through the intercession of blessed Ambrose, Thy Confessor and Bishop, make the gifts offered to Thy Majesty profitable to us for our eternal salvation.  Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

Once have I sworn by My holiness: his seed shall endure forever, and his throne as the sun before Me, and as the moon perfect for ever: and the faithful witness in heaven.

 

Post Communion

 

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that we who receive the Sacraments of our salvation may be aided by the constant prayer of blessed Ambrose, Thy Confessor and Bishop, since it was in his honor that we offered these gifts to Thy Majesty.  Through our Lord.

December 6 – Saint Nicholas, Bishop, Confessor (W), Propers of the Mass – 1962 Missal

Introit

 

The Lord made to him a covenant of peace, and made him a prince; that the dignity of priesthood should be to him for ever. (Psalm) O Lord, remember David: and all his meekness.  Glory be to the Father.  The Lord made him…

 

Collect

 

O God, Who didst adorn the blessed Bishop Nicholas with countless miracles: grant, we beseech Thee, that by his merits and prayers we may be delivered from the flames of hell.  Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – Hebrews 13:7-17

 

Brethren, remember your prelates who have spoken the word of God to you; whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation, Jesus Christ, yesterday, and today; and the same for ever. Be not led away with various and strange doctrines. For it is best that the heart be established with grace, not with meats; which have not profited those that walk in them. We have an altar, whereof they have no power to eat who serve the tabernacle.

 

For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the holies by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp. Wherefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people by His own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore to Him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have not here a lasting city, but we seek one that is to come. By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise always to God, that is to say, the fruit of lips confessing to His name.

 

And do not forget to do good, and to impart; for by such sacrifices God’ s favour is obtained. Obey your prelates, and be subject to them. For they watch as being to render an account of your souls.

 

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, nor the son of iniquity have power to hurt him.

 

Alleluia

 

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

 

Gospel – Matthew 25:14-23

 

At that time, Jesus said to His disciples:  For even as a man going into a far country, called his servants, and delivered to them his goods; And to one he gave five talents, and to another two, and to another one, to every one according to his proper ability: and immediately he took his journey.

 

And he that had received the five talents, went his way, and traded with the same, and gained other five. And in like manner he that had received the two, gained other two. But he that had received the one, going his way digged into the earth, and hid his lord’ s money. But after a long time the lord of those servants came, and reckoned with them. And he that had received the five talents coming, brought other five talents, saying: Lord, thou didst deliver to me five talents, behold I have gained other five over and above.

 

His lord said to him: Well done, good and faithful servant, because thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will place thee over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. And he also that had received the two talents came and said: Lord, thou deliveredst two talents to me: behold I have gained other two. His lord said to him: Well done, good and faithful servant: because thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will place thee over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

 

Offertory

 

My truth and My mercy shall be with him: and in My name shall his horn be exalted.

 

Secret

 

O Lord God, sanctify, we beseech Thee, these gifts which we offer on the festival of Thy holy Bishop Nicholas: that by means of them our life may ever be directed both in adversity and in prosperity.  Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

Once have I sworn by My holiness: his seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before Me, and as the moon perfect for ever: and a faithful witness in heaven.

 

Post Communion

 

May the Sacrifice which we have received, O Lord, on this festival of Thy holy Bishop Nicholas, preserve and protect us for evermore.  Through our Lord.

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 commandment before His face, and a law of life and instruction.

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 Sabbas, 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.

For the powers of heaven shall be moved. And then they shall see the Son of man coming in a cloud with great power and majesty. But when these things begin to come to pass, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is at hand. And he spoke to them in a similitude: See the fig tree and all the trees: when they now shoot forth their fruit, you know that summer is nigh.
