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.

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.

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.

Nov 12 – Saint Martin I, Pope, Martyr (R), Propers of the Mass – 1962 Missal

 

Introit

 

Simon Peter, if thou lovest Me, feed My lambs, feed My sheep.  (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.  Simon Peter, if…

Epistle – I Peter 5:1-4,10-11

 

Dearly beloved: The ancients therefore that are among you, I beseech, who am myself also an ancient, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ: as also a partaker of that glory which is to be revealed in time to come: feed the flock of God which is among you, taking care of it, not by constraint, but willingly, according to God: not for filthy lucre’ s sake, but voluntarily: neither as lording it over the clergy, but being made a pattern of the flock from the heart. And when the prince of pastors shall appear, you shall receive a never fading crown of glory.

 

But the God of all grace, Who hath called us into His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little, will Himself perfect you, and confirm you, and establish you.  To Him be glory and empire for ever and ever. Amen.

 

Gradual

 

Let them exalt him in the church of the people: and praise him in the chair of the ancients.  Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: and his wonderful works to the children of men.

 

Alleluia

Gospel – Matthew 16:13-19

 

At that time, Jesus came into the quarters of Caesarea Philippi: and He asked His disciples saying: Whom do men say that the Son of man is? But they said: Some, John the Baptist, and other some, Elias, and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. Jesus saith to them: But whom do you say that I am?

 

Simon Peter answered, and said: Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answering, said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona, because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but My Father who is in heaven: and I say to thee: That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it; and I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.

Behold I have given My words in thy mouth: lo, I have set thee over the nations, and over kingdoms, to root up, and to pull down, and to build, and to plant.

Post Communion

 

Appeased by this Sacrifice, O Lord, in which Thou hast nourished Thy Church on heavenly food, do Thou so guide her that she may be steered with a firm hand and, while enjoying more liberty, may persist in wholeness of faith.  Through our Lord.

O God, Who in the heart of blessed Andrew Thy Confessor didst effect wondrous upsurging to Thyself as he kept his arduous vow to make daily progress in virtue: through his merits and intercession deign to let us share in his graces, that we too may follow the more perfect path and with Thee as guide happily attain the height of Thy glory.  Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – Ecclesiasticus 31:8-11

 

Blessed is the man that is found without blemish, and that hath not gone after gold, nor put his trust in money nor in treasures. Who is he, and we will praise him? for he hath done wonderful things in his life. Who hath been tried thereby, and made perfect, he shall have glory everlasting: he that could have transgressed, and hath not transgressed: and could do evil things, and hath not done them:  therefore are his goods established in the Lord, and all the Church of the Saints shall declare his alms.

Gospel – Luke 12:35-40

 

At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: Let your loins be girt and lamps burning in your hands, and you yourselves like to men who wait for their lord, when he shall return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open to him immediately. Blessed are those servants whom the lord, when he cometh, shall find watching: amen I say to you that he will gird himself and make them sit down to meat, and passing will minister unto them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 

 

But this know ye, that if the householder did know at what hour the thief would come, he would surely watch, and would not suffer his house to be broken open. Be you then also ready, for at what hour you think not the Son of man will come.

 

Offertory

 

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

In memory of Thy Saints, O Lord, we offer Thee the sacrifice of praise, by which we trust to be freed from both present and future evils.  Through our Lord.

And they shall be His people, and God Himself with them shall be their God: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and death shall be no more, nor mourning, nor crying, nor sorrow shall be any more, for the former things are passed away.

And he sought to see Jesus Who He was: and he could not for the crowd, because he was low of stature. And running before, he climbed up into a sycamore tree, that he might see Him; for He was to pass that way. And when Jesus was come to the place, looking up He saw him, and said to him: Zacheus, make haste and come down: for this day I must abide in thy house.

 

And he made haste and came down, and received Him with joy. And when all saw it, they murmured, saying, that He was gone to be a guest with a man that was a sinner. But Zacheus standing, said to the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have wronged any man of any thing, I restore him fourfold. Jesus said to him: This day is salvation come to this house: because he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
